In reply to:

(unknown member): So you are basically saying that this alleged top-of-the-line camera with incredible autofocus isn't able to get a stationary test target in focus properly.
That's what I call innovation on behalf of Sony.

Did you skip over the many mentions of manual focus only being used?

I hope they plan to implement a direct sync. Pumping GBs of photos through CC isn't going to work for many myself included.

As it is right now this is a selective develop and sync solution.

Fauler_Beamter: If the crippled RAW files concern you, let Sony know! Tell their Customer Support something like "Unless it has lossless RAW-Compression or uncompressed RAW, I won't buy it. Update your firmware and you've got me".

I've recently read an interview with some Sony Guy who basically said "If enough People want it, we'll deliver it."

Come on, Sony... unleash your Monster!

No, they said if enough people want it they would consider doing it. People are reading between the lines and assuming it's happening.

I'd like to see it, but I don't go looking for the ramifications of the compression.

In reply to:

Hombrito: Any image stabilization data for Rx100 III? It is time image stabilization is tested on high end compact cameras as a standard review feature.

Poor image stabilization for Rx 100 I (Sony weakness which was not made clear in otherwise respectable reviews, including on this site) caused me to return Rx 100 in favor of Canon. I estimated Canon had 2-3 stops advantage vs. Sony, which partially compensated for Canon's smaller sensor.

I suspect no improvement.

Why no 1080p 30fps video mode?

From what I've read it has a brand new 5 axis IS system. How much better it is I can't say.

Added support for the ridiculously priced Sony 70-200G II and not for the excellent 70-400G and 70-400G II. What is Adobe smoking?

Bart Luyckx: Interesting that Adobe chose to directly go to LR5.2 from LR5.0

Nice enhancements, but I am going to wait with the update until at least a couple of weeks after the final release. So by mid September I'll be finally able to get rid of the pesky bugs in LR5.0 after a couple of months.

So... this cloud thing, what was it that they said? Faster updates?

Here's the bug that bothers me the most.
