  • Probably a waste of time. You would need a new viewer/editor to implement the DRM, and who will do that when the existing JPEG looks good and is so ubiquitous?

  • Should have called it the EM3.14159, for it's round shape.

    Interesting idea, but the release of the API is the really exciting news. Going to pull that down and see what can be done... and see if...

  • Interesting... Sony's great weakness has been glass, or the lack of. No signature lens line with a serious 'oh wow' factor. With the new AF system and adapters, sounds like they may not need one....

  • On the other hand, sensors are already at or near the limits of what is practical to use, so further improvement isn't translating into useable benefits as much. Cameras won't become obsolete as...

  • Ah, marketing hubris. Where would we be without it? That three year figure sounds a bit ambitious.

    One thing is for sure: the mirrorless field is here to stay, and it's not dominated by two...
