    Sony should soon be releasing a cine line (based on the G-master series, presumably). Those will have both the AF and the manual features. 16-35 should be the first out of the gate.

    LA is headed to the way of Detroit ... and not real Detroit but Detroit, as depicted in Robocop. And it goes way beyond the AB-5. The problems are political - as least, Michigan was a two-party...
