NoTx: Hey, does anyone know if the R-Adapter automates the aperture setting, or is it all stop down? Hoping it can make use of the lenses as they were designed.

Hi There
You don't need stop down metering with a mirror-less camera. Set the aperture you want to use, and the EVF gains up to show you the correct depth of field / metering etc. It's much more elegant than stop down metering, and works really well using 3rd party lenses and adapters on other mirrorless systems.

On Apple releases Aperture v3.3 with iPhoto integration news story (41 comments in total)

Well - I was horrified at first - my personal jury is still out on the grey icons, but I''m beginning to like them.
On the other hand, my impression is that it's faster - I've not had any hangs (even with my 50,000 + library. the new auto enhance button is cool.
Removing the RAW brick from the default is questionable, but it's only the work of 2 minutes to put it back in the default for good.
I've recently gone back to Aperture after 5 months working with Lightroom 4 - I wondered whether it would prompt me to make the big move to Lightroom, but quite the contrary - the clone tool, the cataloguing, the brush based adjustments, the printing . . . . . and now Lightroom 4 is out the speed - Aperture wins at every level. I just wish they'd get their camera updates in a bit more quickly!

Hi There Richard
Thank you - What a fine preview. It's nicely written, entertaining and seems to me to get to the heart of the matter.

TrojMacReady: Why has the A77 been removed from the tool?
Reshot with a later firmware?

Perhaps they were taken away so that they could be reshot with the focus a bit close to the front (only the queen card was truly in focus with the old shots).

PB123456: very bad work. Look at Queens card. It is in focus others not. Look at Mickey - out of focus others OK. Very unprofessional or .....

HI There
I must say, it seems to me that varying focus points make comparisons pretty difficult - as you say, this is focused much further back than some of the other cameras.
