If they price it reasonably, and it seems like they should since there is already a premium 55 f1.8, the barrier to entry in the FE system will be much more competitive.)

PhotoPlus Convention in NYCFrom Jon Hooper:i think your perspective on the future is pretty narrow. You might want to google Ray Kurzweil on the exponential nature of technology development--- 30 years is a long time. We are on the verge of an explosion in computational photography right now. Light, Lytro and various array camera tech will obsolete DSLR's in 5-7 years. In the labs we already have sensors where each pixel is a LIDAR antenna.  Meta material researchers have already demonstrated flat lenses which can give us perfect and variable refraction at any angle using nano gratings (no more giant lenses and more light reaching the sensors).  Imagine visual sensors so cheap they are in everything, imagine them with a billion times the compute power of todays smartphones, imagine them stitching together a continuous 3D experience that is live broadcast on the web.  That is where we are going ... photography as we know it will be an anachronism.

Shooting Fall Foilage- tips and tricksShooting fall color:Shoot at golden hour. That will make the colors in the leaves appear warmer and more intense.Rainy days are also great for photographing foliage: Rain saturates colors.Don’t just shoot the foliage itself. Observe how it interacts with its environment. Be it by framing a house or fallen leaves covering a road, moving in the wind. Focusing on how the day feels and trying to capture that helps to convey a story.Focus on small details. Like the contrast of a Fall leaf on green grass or in a stream. Aftershow - Just for Patreon Supporters
