I found your comments and cirtitcs "on the industry" very wise and I fully  agree with you, but you know, telling the truth requires to have a very fast horse !

Hi Michael,

Great to hear you are recuperating, and that the dragons kept your mind occupied for a little...

I thoroughly enjoyed your article on 'the industry', but feel, perhaps that you missed on substantial player - Pentax.
They were in the running early on (2003 with the *ist D) and the recent 645D has been a big step.
And then last year, the purchasing by Ricoh?

I'd personally love to hear your thoughts in a similiar vein as you gave to the other manufacturers.

I trust the recovery continues to move ahead well!

Regards
Andrew

I had to draw the line somewhere.

Pentax, Hasselblad, Leica, Samsung, Phase One and a number of others are worthy of comment. Maybe as a followup.

Yes, a line must be drawn - totally understand.

Cheers

Michael,

Nice to see you from time to time, I wish you well. I guess we all do wish you well.

Hi Erik,

I'm around. Just husbanding my resources.

Started to drive again the other day. Felt like I'd been liberated.

Greetings Michael,  If one might say, there is a cadence and breath in your words that when combined with the images you chose to share, transported me to an almost trance-like place, where during a nine+ hour surgery to remove a tumor from my head I experienced a flickering sense of being spoken to as in a dream, a place I immediately recognized in your first three paragraphs with the six chosen images images from your past (each with it's own intensities).

Thank you for this memory as it reminds one of the need to move back or down through layers to reach the essences, always there in the peripheries, a skill our bodies and minds have capabilities for but which one fails to access caught up in the onslaught of "moments". Those words and images are a pleasurable reminder. It is as if you gave us two posts, one with "layers hidden".

But I digress, and what else is new? The points you raise in the company of those recent by JS in reply #27 in "Michael's DNG" thread serve as an excellent overview of what could be right with the industry if clearing smoke and mirrors the end users could galvanize their potential power to bring some of these to fruition...we move at such blazing speed...

However, most importantly in this note, uplifting to have you on the mend. I well remember my first "leg up" onto horseback again during my recovery and imagine the foot to the metal must have been the same renewal and empowerment of spirit for you. Continued healing and intensity. p.
