PPierre: I'm looking forward to getting some samples taken with the Sony 85f1.8. Even though I'm likely to go with the Batis, the more I see this small and light lens, the more I'm hesitating...

Go with the Batis. It is an incredible lens. Versatile, durable and so, so sharp.

JOrmsby: I'm not a Sony shooter, but how many FE primes do they need in the 85-100mm range? 85 1.4, 85 1.8, 90 2.8, and 100 2.8. Meanwhile E-mount is still stuck with hardly anything, not to mention other missing FE focal lengths.

Amen. Please, please, please Mr Sony give us a decent lightweight FE24-105 (better still 24-135) f4 walk around lens. We don't need any more 85's, or 50s either for that matter.

On article Sony announces FE 50mm F1.4 ZA prime lens (280 comments in total)

Great, another 800+gram $A2,000 plus repeat lens that only the pros will be interested in: enough already! When are we "ordinary" photographers gonna see a decent FE Sony and/or Zeiss and/or "G" walk-around lens like Canon's f4 24-105L? Sony did a really great job with the new 70-300 but all the other lenses released this year are just too heavy and in many cases are duplicates of existing Sony and/or Zeiss lenses. Come on Sony, give us something with decent optics that we can ALL use daily at a reasonable price that we don't need a pick-up truck to carry around. Just sayin'...

jwd8002: With the release of this software AppleTV (the device that connects iTunes to home TVs) users can no longer connect to their photo libraries on their computers, rather connection is only available with their photos in iCloud. There is a monthly charge to store >5 gig in the cloud. Thus we see blatant (and I believe illegal at least in Australia) price gouging by Apple. Very poor show Mr Apple, ripping off consumers through market manipulation is not nice.

I discovered this myself just today and your poster is sort of right, in iTunes you can select 1 (ie one and only one) album from your iPhoto library as the "album to use on your AppleTV"). You need to export that album from the library to a folder outside the library and away you go with the AppleTV. This is a signify drop from the original access to the whole library.
