I just don't get it with these video capabilities. Editing video is seriously time consuming and most people I know really don't have time to do that. And besides the video it is so hard to find good music to go with it. Or is it just a sales argument for people and never use it once they have it? Maybe I'm oldfashioned, but from a hobby perspective shooting stills provides far more joy.
It justbreaks my heart all the innovation goes to video instead of optimising photo more.

Even hollywood can't guarantee success after a $100 mln investement in a two hour movie. Are there really that many video amateurs that prefer DSLR over a handycam that at least has decent autofocus?

I honestly don't see the need for this lens when you can also buy a 24-15 f4 IS. I have a copy of that and I like it a lot. It's pretty sharp. And it's 35mm more focal lentgh. If it is targetted towards the cheaper 6D, then there are even more arguments to buy the 24-105. It's way cheaper.

LensHood: I really really wonder why you sticked to the threated view of a discussion. It is my single most complaint about this wonderful resource. Just show everything in a flat view. Show ALL messages in a thread simultaneously. It is extremely inconvenient to have these multiple threats. And really, ever noticed that no other forum on the planet does this anymore?

By the way, do you see how we are having a discussion in an alley, while the actual commenting continues on the highway above us?

You see how pointless sub-threads are? I could be solving Fermat's equations here without anyone noticing.

The threaded view has two huge drawbacks:
- when you want to read a discussion, I click flat view, otherwise I only see one post. But then if I answer at the bottom of the screen. All of a sudden I answer in one of the trees. Huh?
- it causes discussions to go astray. Everybody starts their subdiscussion. In a forum where every minute ten to fifty discussions start, having discussions is totally unnecessary. It's not that we are reaching conclusions or agreements on important problems and we need to be able to follow the line of thought. Everybody should stick to the main question of the OP and having a flat discussions actually enforces that more than the threaded view.

The fact that you have 33 million old discussions is no problem. Just make them searchable, but start over. Within 2 months we have enough new searchable discussions. And we can slowly forget about the old forum.

Discussion trees are abandoned everywhere. It's 2012.
