really?

Am I the only person that notices the designer handbag and 100% clean burka?

Kinda strange. He/She/it goes out/shopping and all of a sudden puts on gloves and hugs this person.

Maybe.

BelePhotography: Most comments in here tell me only one thing. Pixelpeepers and gearheads will never grasp the art of photography. I find it a brilliant capture symbolizing in more than one way the struggle large parts of the arabic society is still going through...

Alex West: I visited the booth. Big let down from Sony. Lots of good employees no longer work for Sony and the new ones don't see to know much about photography. They kept pushing that silver 500mm G-series lens that has been vaporware for years and years now.

Have to agree with the other posters that the wait for the NEX7 is also frustrating. I canceled my order because the new Fuji will most likely hit the shelves soon and have better prime lenses to use during launch. Shame because I love my HX9 Cybershot.

I didn't see that dual screen clam shell tablet that Sony showed last year. Anyone know what happened to that?

Also what happened to OLED TVs from Sony? Is Sony struggling as a company because of the Earthquake / Tsunami or are there other reasons?

Can someone explain the "Men is Black" thing they were pushing? Nobody understood it. Thanks.

I see. America must really like those "Men in Black" Will Smith movies - or at least Japan thinks so. Very strange. I will have to watch these Black Men movie to see what the excitement is about. Thanks.

It was weird walking around Sony CES this year. It was like everyone was embarrassed that they didn't have anything new.

Everyone was asking the staff about Full Frame cameras and new Tablets and OLED TVs....but nothing was there.

arndsan: Would love to get this camera, but the lens need to be best ...and at least f2 for the prime.
Can we use the lens for the X-Pro full-frame as well? - please fujifilm make it full-frame since the body is the size of a m9 anyway.

Looks like a fantastic camera and I preordered one but,

Does anyone know what bit rate or color depth the video will shoot at?

Thanks!
