I had no problems downloading Lightroom PC on amazon US. This year or last year but I am a prime member and likely addicted to Amazon. I am currently updating to 5.2 as I type this.

Well, I loved the original M because it's small and the images from the 22mm lens was indeed beautiful.
However, that was merely a 650D in a small body which is fine for the price i paid. But it was always only going to be a "fun" grab an go camera.
The EOS M2 if rumoured specs (they usually are) are true, then i would say boo hoo...these specs should've been in the EOS M fromt he beginning.
They had 2yr maybe to develop a new M and all they could do is to put a 70D into a small body?
Do note that everyone else in the market has already uped their game...and CES2014...i belive Sony has plenty of new stuff coming out as well...
Is the EOS M2 going to be able to compete? I highly doubt.
I love Canon stuff, always have but with the market moving so fast recently, and with Canon taking it's own sweet time, i couldn't wait.
i still have my EOS M, i still have a few L lenses for it because i sold my 5D3...
But i can see myself slowly getting rid of everything because i got tired of waiting for Canon..
I love my A7R now and using that camera, makes me wished Canon did it first...it really is what i wanted and more..just a pity it has a Sony name, not Canon...i'm not a fan of Sony but i have to give it to them for this camera...Canon, please buck up and maybe i will go back to you one day.
I agree with you 100%. I have a 6D as well as an EOS M. Question for you- since you've got the A7R - what do you think of using an adapter with the L glass? Have you tried any? I'm also looking at the Contax G mount Zeiss glass, since the adapter supports AF. There appears to be several interesting lenses in G mount for not much money.
Not my best work just a case of Number 10 of being a camera geek.
Is that a Korat cat I see before me?
Or a Russian Blue? (but it doesn't seem "edgy" and muscular enough for that).
Second when I say software I do not explicitly mean Post Processing Software. There is nothing to say that Canon could not apply a two pixel Gaussian blur to the raw readout before combining the phase pixels. This could form a simple optical low pass filter in either software(firmware) or electronics hardware depending on their design. Basically solve it in software and down sample before you ever touch it.
Even if the dual pixel sensor is a truly 40 mp one, 40mp on FF still needs an AA filter (yes, I know that the D800E has none, more precisely, a very weak one). On crop, we may be close to the pixel density not requiring an AA filter but this is hard to predict.QuoteBut there will be plenty of people that will complain that all the above is not enough and want there optical Low pass AA filter.
Those would be the people who understand Sampling Theory.
The only future hardware update I can conceive of would be Quad Pixel AF, which would support sensor-plane PDAF in both the horizontal as well as vertical directions.
Could be done as orthogonal dual pixel AF, where the half of the pixels are split vertically and half are split horizontally.
Speaking about emphasis: I find the recent news that Nikon is patenting an adjustable AA filter really exciting. I wish that was Canon.I wish they would just remove the AA filter and be done with it. Solve the problem in software and down scale. But the movie crowd and some landscape photographers would scream bloody murder. And insist software is just not good enough.
Software is not good enough
Beyond that I have yet to see an example pair where the AA version couldn't be sharpened to look the same as the non-AA version. Perhaps someone could post such an example, I admit I haven't extensively tested this. But the couple times sample pairs were available a quick USM brought them even.
