qwertyasdf: Wow, this will change how we see the world.

Not quite... in essence, this will restore the full view of full frame lenses on APS-C (and m4/3) cameras. I'd consider this more like a "Full frame converter". So this won't change how we see the world, it'll just bring it back to the way we see the world in 35mm format.

mpgxsvcd: Since when is an "aperture of F2.9-5.6 " considered "Fast"? If it was F2.0 all the way through that would be fast.

Look at the lens barrel, it's F2.9-6.5, not 5.6!!!

That makes the 1200mm end almost useless...

GoremanX: None of this explains why I can't just use some other cataloging software and use Lightroom solely for image processing. I find the Lightroom catalog features to be sorely lacking, my preferred catalog software does a much better job of organizing and retrieving my images (yes, even different versions of the same image). But every time I want to process a photo in Lightroom, I have to trudge through the tedious import process, even for ONE STUPID PICTURE.

This forced Adobe cataloging crap is merely a means to lock users into a purely-Adobe workflow. Nothing more, nothing less. And it's insulting.

@Tim OConnor,
Camera Raw does not do the same things Lightroom does. For example, none of the fancy 3rd party plugins work with Camera Raw.

Why should I force myself to use one software program when that one program doesn't do everything as well as the other software I paid for and learned to use already? Sometimes Lightroom is the best tool for working with an image. Sometimes AfterShot is. And sometimes I use something else entirely. In all cases, the Lightroom catalog is inferior and lacking features that I sorely need.

So thanks to the forced Lightroom catalog, I now have hundreds (thousands?) of tiny, useless Lightroom catalogs.

I can totally see the benefits of using a single software for most of my workflow. I can even see some benefits to using one company's software for all of my workflow. But that should be MY CHOICE!!! Adobe is trying to FORCE me to use their catalog software. There's no technical reason whatsoever why that should be necessary except to enforce a monopoly

erm... I can only imagine the glare such a filter would cause if the sun is even slightly in front of the camera (even if not in the frame)
