Richard Franiec: I'm surprised that there is no one (yet) from Amazon to answer a multitude of question regarding the service.

There are no people at Amazon, drones have taken over.

Watching those videos is like listening to a college professor teaching a class you don't want to be in...the monotone drags on.

Good to know...I have the $30 version, but its interface is pretty daunting, so I am no expert on this software, but when I do use it, it seems better than acr for getting the most out of Sony pics.

Actually it is full capture 1, the only thing missing is tethering support which is available for $30.

Really enjoyed the video especially Barney not afraid to mix it up. One thing stands out for me is that the portrait shots seem like P&S quality with little separation from the background even at 2.8. Easy to get everything focus though with such wide DOF.

fotodp: Several posters assume that Oly and Sony are true competitors. Unless something has changed they are not: Sony is the largest shareholder in Oly and bailed out Oly a couple of years back promising synergies between sensor expertise and lens expertise. Puzzling that Mr Ogawa didn't bring it up. Is Sony perhaps betting on 1" and full frame being the two system survivors. But why not instruct Oly to make lens designs for Sony, its parent company. Or maybe Sony has sold or is going to sell its stake?

They bought a seat on the board so have an influence on Oly going forward.

steelhead3: Interesting how Sony managed with off sensor pdaf in the A77II to have face and eye detection. Obviously cdaf is not required. Here is pdf on Sony's A77II.

Digitall: "Made in Korea" North or South?

Just read an article that states many N. Koreans are producing products just over the border in China (made in China) to get around the embargoes.

That was the most defensive answers I heard in your interviews, the Canon ceo doesn't have an answer for modern cameras.

Seems if the micro contrast of the Zeiss T* coating is evident in these photos. Congratulations to the photographer for capturing images to test flare, distortion and CA.

Too bad the posted video I watched was shot with a Canon lens and adapter, saw a bit of color fringing, not the camera's fault.

JDThomas: Is England going to require the return of all foreign works of fine art to their country of origin? What is the British Museum doing with Egyptian mummies and Greek statues?

Surely they should be returned to their rightful place in the world?

Just like London Bridge, I think we Americans would really enjoy seeing Stone Henge displayed on the Las Vegas strip between some clubs.

steelhead3: the British have so little in the way of great Art through the ages, they thought it necessary to rob foreign lands of their treasures by military force.

No denying everything you wrote except for the Arts part. The UK is well represented in the arts but just not in the top tier. That said, nothing can match your taste in clothes and classic design in automobiles (too bad about Lucas electrics though).

You have it there...the Muslim death cult lives and will not be defeated until the headless hordes are defeated.

brumd: "On first use the filter needs about four hours of sunlight to create the hydrophilic characteristic"

What does that mean exactly? 4 hours of bright light on a sunny day? How long would it take on a cloudy day, for example in Iceland?
And how long does it take on second and third use?

You can put them in your marijuana grow room to charge (couldn't resist now that everyone is thinking about this in Oregon.)
