Gabor Takacs: Big deal. Any toddler hits ten different cute poses a second. :)) So any father who ever tried to take photographs of his daughter can easily keep up the pace. (And that's why a father originally invented 3D tracking as well.)

But can you do it for 12 hours straight? 7 days a week? or it's just 5 minutes thing that you do, after brought overly expensive DSLR to shoot your kids and it could have done better with a cellphone?

Too quick to judge? That's the B-roll, not production photos.

Time is money. It doesn't matter how cheap the PC is, even it's free, still not worth the hassle. One year wastes in Windows is another year i would never get back.

Thanks, but no thanks.

wayne ker: iFIXit just confirmed that the CPU and RAM in new 21in iMac can be upgraded! The CPU is sitting in a standard LGA 1152 CPU socket!

Now that you can use external graphic cards, it means iMac and possibly iMac Pro can be upgraded with New CPU!

dude, google is your friend.

@darngooddesign
Actually the original source was from 9to5Mac site, they claimed it was confirmed from Apple that the memory is non removable on iMac Pro.

The iMac Pro must have different design

Peter von Reichenberg: OK Apple. Hackintosh for me this year.

@ewelch
Hear Hear. Came from a Apple hater myself. I was such a FOOL util i used a Mac. Why did i waste so much time and money building all this state of the art parts and components, over the top PC years after years and have to deal with buggy OS? Mac is simplicity and functional. The overall OS never changed from the last decade. it just works. The money u invest on a Mac, u put it to work...not wasting any resources on spamwares, spywares, antivirus, weekly updates, driver conflicts, driver updates.....

photoaddict: The SD slot for any new or future MacBooks will NEVER happen. More cameras will have the WiFi capability and can transfer files to MacBooks wirelessly.

The goal is to simplify as much as possible and minimize ports to the point that they look simple and elegant. Thunderbolt 3 now looks like USB-C ports (it uses the same interface).
If you do just photography, then high end iMac is the FASTEST Mac money can buy, not Mac Pro which is bette for video editing. The iMac Pro should be the one optimized for video editing and AR/VR creation.

And iMac Pro is a better steal - you get the 5K for free!

And for the upteenth time, there will be NO TOUCHSCREEN for Macs. Apple has said that many times, even at Keynote! iOS is designed for touchscreen while macOS is designed for trackpad/mouse/keyboard use.

We don't know yet What Apple will do on the next new Mac Pro but the iMac Pro is definitely best bang for the bucks comes equipped with 5K monitors.

I am delighted with the announcement. Comes DEC, i will get one to replace my fully loaded MBP.. May be this time i can get it to power a dual 4k, 60hz outfit without overheat.

Lensmate: They need a 'real judge' category becos many of the prize winning shots are disappointingly average! That twin shot [above] with one kid getting 'skewered' with a pole through his head and out the other end is another soccer mom shot that is on the same level as a poorly done selfie.

There's no weapon, dead body in the war torn zone picture that often captivate emotion but i felt the twin's pain by looking at it. I am no real judge... but i would say it's great picture. May be you can show us some above-average pictures of yours?? @lensmate

RedWattlebird: If Apple won't release a proper MBP with physical function keys, SD card slot and MagSafe..... and Microsoft release a decent Surface Phone - I'm done with Apple.

And so is my wife.

Good luck with that. None of that will happen next week.

Frank_BR: Any questions now that mirrorless is the way to more compact and lightweight wide angle lenses? Half the weight of Sigma 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art or Canon EF 11-24mm F4L USM. Checkmate.

Checkmate is when Sony releases a 11-24 @ 2.8 or 10-36 @F4 and it's cheaper and better optically than a 11-24mm @F4. Weight and size don't matter to me.

Sony kids these days lack standard and goal.

How do you checkmate a 12-24 on 11-24 ? You are not even in the same category. LOL

CamCaptain: Sony 12-24mm less than half the weight of the Sigma and Canon versions. Holy cow. Latest Sony releases suggest it will be at least as good optically too.

but but but Canon doesn't has 12-24mm..

Daniel L: Great Stuff! Thanks for putting your thoughts and reviews on the monster wide zoom.

Questions on the filters.
Do you have experiences in using Fotodiox WonderPana 186mm and free arc system for 11-24? The system has option for setup down rings so one could use the same filter set for 24-70 or 16-35 if needed. It's always a good option not to carry two set of filter system while traveling right?

Would you consider doing a Nisi vs the Fotodiox for 11-24? I think the filters option for 11-24 a hot topic and there's not many reviews out there.

Thk for the reply. I hope someone at Fotodiox would contact you offering a set of even larger filter system on your next trip. :) I'm not a gear head either, if only 11-24mm is not that huge and difficult. it's quite a lot to invest in an expensive filter system which only fits one len, not an easy decision.

What really important to me is how convenient and easy for each system to change filter, how the fittings, quality and durability. A pro like you would offer a valuable opinion if you get your hands on both.

Brilliant works man, keep it up!!

hmm... Sony a9 Tear Down: We did it, so you don't have to?

a9 is like a new iPhone, bloggers write anything that sells traffic out of nothing.
What's next? a9 unboxing video? bend test? How to get the best my-first-shot with a9?

ewelch: Make it Thunderbolt 3 and you'd have a winner. When Apple introduces their new pro monitors, it's going to make this thing look bad. Dell just introduced a monitor with better specs. So price better be the winning card this monitor has to play.

@Clueless you user name does rhythm. You should get out more often, there are more PC laptops out there with T3 connectivity than Apple.
