panther fan: Where is the depth sensing technology for my DSLR? Would be an easy way to cut/mask a subject out of a background for editing in photoshop and lightroom.

it's called Depth of Field. It has been a money making machine for camera manufacturer in the last century. But it's about to change like how Photoshop has changed Dark room.

DVT80111: Hmm I just spent $1600+ for a new Surface Pro for my daughter last month, and this isn't good news. She already had a Mac Air through 3 yrs of college. But she needs something more capable for CAD in the final year, and she want to use the Surface to take notes. I asked her why she doesn't want the iPad Pro, and she was pretty adamant about what she wanted. Usually I don't buy extended warranty, but since she will be living far away, luckily I bought it this time. MS, you betray our trust.

It's Solidworks. I bought her a i5-8GB model and I am sure she can run SLWS for her project. I run SLWS in my work laptop too, for small model, yes.
Usually I don't buy extended warranty, but because this new Surface Pro is non-repair/non-up gradable, so I opted for it.
I had about 4 broken PC laptops in my family over the years. All for hinge, and one for poor thermal performance. We had 2 Macbook Air and they are still solid. There is a price to pay though.
Beside the hardware, I give a damn about OSX. I am a PC guy, and I am not an idiot.

moontide: I have finally gone full frame and get great shots, but I watch my wife and kids taking photos with their smart phones and how they post them for show so quickly and get gratifying feedback. The fact is these are are lovely photos for posting on the internet and that is by far the biggest direction photography is heading in. My 160+Mb photos have very limited use these days compared to a smart phone. Horses for Courses!

Very true that you can post picture to social network very quickly with the phone, but it is also true that people will forget the picture just as fast.

surlezi: Strange, inm pretty sure Îve read this article already...

Yes, they announced back in May, but this one spills a little more beans. This sensor opens up a lot more applications.

One bright spot for Canon fans, your 5 year old camera is not being obsoleted.

Do we need another proof that the mirror camera will disappear soon?

Is E-mount the new standard on videography? So that's why everybody is making lens for it?

WesPerry: Definitely looking forward to the 35f1.4
Hopefully the prices are reasonable!

MF at 1.4 can be very tricky.

Since new camera has IBIS, I hope they remove the OSS feature and give us cheaper and more robust lens.

In reply to:

panchorancho: Why bother making these in E mount? I'd rather have them in Leica M mount that way you can adapt them to different cameras. Buying MF glass solely for a Sony body seems like a waste of money.

Agree with you here. Developing MF lens for Leica users makes more sense since they don't have electricity under 5 foot of dirt.
