I doubt we will see small lenses anytime soon. Manufacturers seem to have lost the desire or capability to make them. The Fujicrons are the exception.

I was initially disappointed that they discontinued Google Reader, but I transitioned to another program and didn't skip a beat, so it turned out not to be a big deal. I don't use Google+ so nothing...

How does underexposure with correction in Lightroom comport with the admonition to expose to the right. They seem at odds.

I hate to burst your bubble, but given the frequency and length of your posts on RFF, you can't remotely be deemed anti-social. You head up the monthly NYC meet-ins for goodness sake.

Leica Camera Added a Shop Now Button to Their Page
