Androole: 35mm primes that weigh 1.2kg. What a world.

That is right. Lenses go better and better, but also more and more heavy and expensive.

trungtran: When i buy water i just grab the cheapest bottle. I don't bother with Evian, Fuji or whatever brand that is made half way across the world.

Interesting experiment, maybe someday in the future we can have these organic lenses, small and can be shaped for different focal lengths.

I just drink tap water. No need to buy water in bottles, at least in a region where there is a descent supply system and good water quality, like germany of france.

On the other hand, those where lenses with nine lenses and this lens has 14. You get much more glass for the money.

The old Distagon T* 1,4/35 mm for Contax weights 600g, the half.

barfoo: This would be even better as a browser extension.

And even better as a desktop application.

PieterB: I just wonder if you could a tablet as external screen.

With USB 3.1 it is possible to route displayport over USB. That would be a viable way to do it.

But it would need hdmi input, even if it is not as a standard socket.

A Tablet with HDMI input?

I have 1200px verticaly for years now. No way to get back to 1080.
Btw., does it have a pivot function?

Johan Huang: Aha.. My first digital compact camera. Served its duty well. Still have it somewhere in my closet since my dry cabinet is packed with newer toy.

My first digital too. Still have it, still ready to use. Pictures taken with that camera still look good today. ISO is usable at the base value of 50 only.
I learned to love love the tiltable screen wich is really handy many situations, although it is very tiny. (And it is suitabel for selfies.) Shutter lag feels like a minute or so.

dbateman: With a name like Nikon Miami, I guess he is not going to be using an Olympus or Panasonic camera. But that D4 setup with 800mm lens just looks like an ad for the Panasonic GH5 with the Olympus 300mm with Tc converter. The 6k photo mode and olympus lens combo would just be so light, cheaper, faster (to move around) and fun to use. However you would not nearly get as many stares from the old men in the golf carts.

Isn't it a D810?

Ross the Fidller: I suppose he has a hydraulic hoist on his vehicle to lift it onto his shoulders too. ;)

That is only 13.6 kg. Still fine for the average female.

Kharan: What camera is he using? Because if it's a DX body, well, I can understand... but that ridiculous contraption (painted MAGENTA, because it wasn't ugly enough) for an FX with 800mm is just stupid.

Ok, I go and paint my rocket launcher magenta now.

stratplaya: Stop using Google for your searches, folks. Use Bing. I love it.

DuckDuckGo lets you search with all kinds of search engines. Type !g in addition to your keywords and it will search with google just like start page. !w uses wikipedia, !b bing and so on.

Terkwoiz: At 32 inches the best resolution (to me) is 2569 x 1440. Anything higher than that and text becomes too small from a normal viewing distance. If you want 4K you should go at least 40 inches. There are some very nice 40" 4K monitors on the market now for around $1k. For mobile devices it's a totally different scenario as you're viewing the screen from 15" away or less. For anyone to say that we'll all eventually be using 8k displays doesn't make any sense unless they also specific the type of device - TV, monitor, or mobile.

Pixel density is a different story. The higher the pixel density the better - as long as the resolution makes sense for the type of device being used. And yes, scaling would then need to be involved.

This 32" WQHD is a great monitor and it's now less than $400:
Samsung 32” WQHD LED Monitor (S32D850T) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L3KNOF4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_hdqkzbCQA6B2T

The point is, you could make a 8k-display for desktop use even with only 24" or smaller because fonts and GUIs can be rendered as big as needed. It would only be a waste of power. And yes, I am aware that this is not working as well as it should in all cirumstances with all software.
