#824. Monday Post (25 Feb. 2019)- From multi-lens platforms to multi-platform lenses (back to the MP roots)

  When the Monday Post was created, the intent was to adress industry news. Things (meaning: writers) later digressed, even sometimes going completely off-topic, as some readers remarked. So it is time to go back to the MP roots: let’s talk news and gear!     News this week have
