Marcel: You need a good sniper to shoot those drone's down when they entre private area.

A high-powered pellet gun would do the trick. This thing has a short range.

Sounds promising. Can't wait to see real world testing on a Sony A7r II.

The 'Big Brick' with a short, wide zoom, could be a real workhorse.

The Scurvy Dog of PR: I was going to share this on FB with my friends, but I can only do it via an app and that's NEVER gonna happen. No more support for 'cut and paste' urls? You guys are idiots. The more you try to control how content is distributed, the less pleasurable the experience becomes. You remind me of Adobe at this point. IMHO.

It produces a 'dead page' link when you try to cut and paste the 'URL'. Cut and paste did not work.

What Eric said. Not all of us are so weak.

OH... and you can expect Adobe Trolls to be out in force, trying to close these complaints. That's what the Public Relations department is paid to do. Damage Control.

SteB: The 90mm macro, looks rather long for a 90mm macro lens. It looks more like a DSLR design with a built in extension to fit a short back flange distance. The Tamron 90mm macro, both the old and new additions, prove that a high performing 90mm macro lens for FF doesn't have to be big. In fact I think it's not unlikely this Sony lens may be based on the Tamron 90mm macro. I'm not saying it is, because we need to see the specifications. However, it would hardly be the first time a camera manufacture has done this.

I use mine strictly in manual focus mode on my NEX-7.

I think the article was spot-on. Thank you.

The Scurvy Dog of PR: Too many people here want FAST, SMALL, HIGH QUALITY lenses. With no regard as to what's involved. Basically, you need to pick 2 variables, but you can NEVER have all 3 without paying $1,000s of dollars per lens. Most of us cannot afford that. Lens design is always about trade-offs. That dog of a lens they made to appease those who just had to have a compact mini-zoom for the APS/c NEX is proof of that. I want compact lenses too, but realize we are talking F4 or F4.5 to get anything worth shoot with at a price I can afford. Unrealistic expectations.

One other point- AF electronics will always add dimension to the lens design in question. Want small? Use manual focus lenses.

The Tamron 90mm Macro is an excellent lens. I love mine. And it was very affordable.

Once an image sensor exceeds 16 or 18 MP, lens quality becomes critical. More so, the smaller the sensor is.

Time to disable the WiFi and Bluetooth chips on my iMac so Apple can't force OSX updates that prevent perfectly good applications from working.

Beautiful images. Very nicely done.

On article Adobe CC Announcements: What you need to know (181 comments in total)

$10 bucks a month… Is that enough to get us holdouts to join the 'Cloud'? I don't know. At least the price is somewhat more reasonable. That said, I refuse to work with a software program that is based on a subscription. It's just not going to happen. I draw issue with the entire premise. If you are OK, with that, go for it. I'm not.
