sirhawkeye64: Seeing that 2TB SSDs are $600+ I can only see how much this 30TB monster would cost. Since 2TB is around $600, I would say this is probably likely to cost around $7,000 (about $300 per TB). You now theoretically have enough storage for all your
RAW files and media for the next 15+ years for us hobbyist / enthusiasts.... professionals probably go through disk space much faster.

However, being that it's a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) device, most consumer level computers will need an adapter to use it.

I'm keeping my HDDs :). SSDs are not for storage anyways.

ecka84: 365 daily rewrite cycles per year * 5 years = 1825 rewrite cycles. Doesn't sound like much. I thought that normal consumer SSDs live through 3000-5000 cycles under warranty these days. Am I missing something?

I'm not planning to write 30TB per day, but rather 300-500TB per week, randomly, sometimes more. This 30TB/day*5 years is only a warranty thing. Meaning that if you'll drain the expected lifespan of the drive in a shorter that 5 year period, let's say 18 month, then it's out of warranty anyways. Same happens if you don't even use it once in those 5 years.

Exactly. Larger capacity increases drive's durability. What's really questionable here is using lower durability chips in the first place. It's an enterprise class drive for nerd's sake ... :)

ecka84: 100-300mm F4 would be much more intriguing.

You can put 70-200F2.8+1.4xTC on APS-C as well. Or just crop a high-res FF image. Smaller sensor itself isn't really an advantage. 70-200F2.8 on 1.5x crop is equivalent to 100-300F4.2.
No free lunch.

On article Leaked: Samyang XP 50mm F1.2 EF lens coming soon (81 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rod McD: Samyang seems to have any number of lenses from fisheye to about 135mm from memory. Very good too - but the glaring gap in the independent market is long telephoto primes that anyone can afford. Why no Samyang XP 200/2.8, 300/4, 400/4.5 or 500/5.6? Fast, but not excessively so, to keep them portable and affordable. And I don't care if they're MF as long as the glass is first rate.

Samyang makes long portable lenses already. There are 500/8, 500/6.3 and 800/8 mirror options. But something like 300/4 Macro would really make a difference in photography world.

I wonder why Sigma did not update their 100-300F4EX. Is it because 70-200F2.8+1.4xTC is basically the same thing ...

Fujica: How come DPReview does pickup this news, while the news offered by Panasonic and Fujifilm was missed over their attempt over a global shutter.

My goodness: an 8K Organic global shutter sensor with seems ready!!
But no DPReview gives attention to something that is not yet even 1 Megapixel..

@MrALLCAPS
This could be organic BS just as well.

Tungsten Nordstein: All that stuff Google display on their search engine. How did they get permission to display it without content-owners' consent?

We've only ourselves to blame for this. Google *are* the internet. They hold all the cards and now we are hooked into relying on their search engines, they will do as they please.

Exactly right.
Turns out we are the real victims here and even more so after the deal.

The lawsuit is nonsense. And the agreement is nonsense to.
We need some fundamental changes in copyright laws. Not button manipulations.

Well, neither of both Fuji and Panasonic would make it a FF. So, I personally don't care for that reason alone :).

Good bye Google and good luck with innovations like that! :)

Don't worry about me. I've found a simple one-click no-hassle solution. And I would/will share it with everyone after I make sure that it is legal :).

Well, there's really no need for scaling on a 43" UHD. Things are just as big as on a regular 21.5" 1080p monitor. Maybe it's Apple's retina thing, but scaling seems to be a bad idea pretty much always. No scaling - no problem.

@Bobthearch
No, it was the same yesterday.

And for someone with 43" UHD display those tiny little "preview" images are a bad joke :).

See, you can't open it to view directly from the google search. Which doesn't make our life any easier :)

Well, of course there are workarounds. For now. And I'm not interested in stealing images. But it's a mess anyways.
