On article Lytro announces Light Field Camera (269 comments in total)

Why is that everytime a new camera/device arrives it is judged as if it is supposed to make all other cameras/devices obsolete? The magic "one size fits all" camera/device doesn't exist - and will not come anytime soon..
I cannot imagine that Lytro expects the Light Field to replace all 'traditional' cameras. Personally I prefer SLR's, but I often use a P&S and even my phone to capture stills & video - depending of the purpose and situation. Instead of regarding the Lytro as a replacement of existing technology, why not regard it as a new possibility? After all, video has not replaced still photography, not yet anyway - both medias has their own purpose, you can do things with video you can't do with stills and vice versa.
I don't see the Lytro as a potential replacement or competitor to my existing cameras, but I do see the Lytro as a great new imaging possibility, kind of a "living still image" where the viewer can "explore" the image (retro focus and perhaps 3D)
