On article Sony Europe introduces a68 SLT with 79-point AF module (305 comments in total)

Another smart move for Sony, continuing the A mount as I suspected... just beginning to wonder when! lol

This also hints of some sort of super star A78 before year end, I'd bet. I'm not sure what they are going to do for the A99 though...

R Stacy: My A7II better be on this lineup next!! 24mp FF raw is not yet an antiquated camera!

I just want the best possible outcome, and why not? I don't miss many due to focus issues, some, but not many. What I want is the best possible file for post development in any given situation. I shoot RAW +jpg in Adobe and more than half the time I just use the .jpg, especially for web size. Does that suggest we don't need or want uncompressed RAW? No, it does not.

On article Adobe issues Lightroom 6.2 apology and update (229 comments in total)

Coming from PS CS5 (CS3 before that) LR always seemed a complex mess to work with and not easy to develop (pun intended) a reasonable work flow.

On sale TODAY for $799 at B&H (no, I'm not affiliated - I just get their daily deals). I'm not interested enough to buy one even at that price yet, but I would like to use one for a day.

Now all we need to do is figure out 19 years of food and water and some willing career participants to send a couple blokes along next time.

R Stacy: Brilliant concept, though already showing signs of 2014 aging specs. Bring the screen, ram and storage up to modern spec and I'd strongly consider it. I don't care about 4k video, years off practical use yet.

I wonder if a 6" screen might be a bit too much bulk for this concept, my HTC One M8 is fine for size (for me).

Mike FL: From what I can see that SONY puts itself in a bad position from its own innovation - too many products lines.

By using A7x and A7-2 for example, SONY *should* have two Lens line for:
- One line with OIS
- One line without OIS

OIS can be disabled, or IBIS can be partially being disabled for using lens' OIS.

BUT same SPECed OIS lenses are larger and expensive than lens without OIS, and the extra cost will be added up fast as we buy more and more OIS lenses. It is system camera, not P&S like RX1, RX10, RX100 lines.

BAD. is it not?

Problem with your argument being you are dealing with a 4/3 sensor vs. a full frame sensor. Yes 2.8 is faster, but you'll get even less DOF with f4 on a FF. And the better Sony's are weather sealed.

As an old Olympus user and still fan I've always thought IBIS was the smart move. Hopefully Zeiss and Sony are working on this message. It took Olympus more than a couple years to get into lens development after the E-1.

If Sony is going to get serious towards E mount, they'll have to and recent developments suggest they are moving in that direction. Not soon enough is the catch phrase for now.

No. I don't think its bad. One OIS or not OIS, this or that, really? Sony is evolving quite nicely, incredibly in fact. 5 axis IBIS is a recent development probably from their association with Olympus. Not a bad thing. I wouldn't mind seeing non OIS lenses in the future, now, but they are pushing the industry and leaving many in the dust to play catch up. Perfect systems? No, not yet. But they're working on it hard and fast and I applaud their top shelf efforts.
