maybe it's just me, but that whole thing of 'being cool' because you have the latest and greatest shiny gadget that you don't actually need (or even worse, thinking you need it and that it enhances your life, doesn't waste your time, and you can't live without it) is precisely why i Don't have an iphone (or any other tablet).

My nokia 8310 is 9 years old. it still works. it makes calls, it sends and receives sms.

ie, it's a phone.

Why would you carry around a heavy camera just to look like you have money when your phone can take pictures?  <- See how silly statements like that sound? :)

I just checked with my wife and she said I'm not cool, so apparently that's not what a smartphone is for.  SMS is for teenagers; a phone is just a phone.  If you live/conduct business in the modern world and/or need to get information faster than traditional means (traffic, schedules, e-mails) then an upgrade is in order.

Since you can function without said convenience, that's great; your bloodpressure is probably a lot lower than most people's :D  What you are missing is it's not a phone that does a bunch of other stuff; it's a data device that just happens to be a phone.

Well, I have to say I want to know what a 50mm or 100mm macro shot looks like on it before outright dismissing it.

Also, what if you took this and had an app that could do advanced light/color temperature evaluation on it?

Practicality is *NOT* what this was intended for, definitely :) 

I have to wonder what you could do if they took the concept, turned it into a smart accessory (like the card readers, medical scanners etc) and used a different sensor and then only use the ipod/ipad/iphone for a processor/interface?

I don't know about iPhone, but an adapter like this that will let one use EF telephoto lenses on a S95 or some of the other compact PowerShot models with decent sensors would be extremely interesting.

I wonder,
Is there really anyone there, carrying a large tele or any other DSLR-Lens without a DSLR.

This is more a "nice to have" rather than a really useful part. :-X

I don't know what would look stupider, taking photos with your iphone on a white tele lens, or walking around having a conversation with your 5D2 on your cheek...?

HA! This thing is more useless than personalized stationary! I mean seriously, who would drop $250+tax on this stupid thing? The iPhone's lens is so small that it would pretty much defeat the whole purpose of the SLR lens in front of it as it gives an almost non-existent field of view! If they insist on making this thing, they should drop the price to $50 or less. Only then would I buy one.

The whole point of the iPhone as a camera is that it is so portable. If you're going to spend 700$ on an iPhone 4 and 250$ on the lens adapter you might as well buy a 60D and would give you much better photos and it will be one hell of a camera instead of a toy.

I agree with it being called a "steal". For $250 I expect aperture control.

It seems almost like a parody of the mirrorless category.

You just described the first two work cell phones I ever had (size-wise) they were a shade smaller than a 5DmkII w/ 100-400mm L on it :o

I'm sure the optical zoom will be better than the digital one (if it exists)

I don't have an iPhone yet (waiting for iPhone 5), but I am interested.  Why, because I have been stopped from taking in my 5DM2 into some stadiums and events because it is a 'professional' camera.  Now, I would have liked to have been able to bring a iPhone with a 300mm f/4 lens (w/ 1.4x) into the Miss Universe competition... :)

There are times when I am traveling that it might be useful.  But at the current price, I would have a hard time using it that much.

I would worry about the sensor quality and answering a phonecall as well.

Most stupid idea of 2011 to date!! Go out and buy a $1000+ L series and put it on an iPhone.... Really! What a waste of an idea.
Canon 7D gripped - 5D2 gripped - 16-35 f2.8l - 24-70 f2.8l - 70-200 f.2.8 IS l - 35 f1.4l - 50 f1.2l - 85 f1.2 l - 135 f2 l - 300 f4 l Tokina 10-17 Fisheye - 580EX II - And not much drive space left on my computer...

One benefit of this is that one can instantly post one's pictures to Flickr, Facebook, and everything else...

Real question: When will someone decide to stick a little bit of cell phone into a camera? The compant who does this first will sell millions, and I will buy one. Hopefully it will be Canon, lest I stain my pure soul with vile Nikonianness, or worse still Samsung! (not that I actually have anything against Nikon... I own a Nikkor 105 2.5 pre-ais or whatever the nomenclature is, and love it!)

Or, maybe there is a droid app which would allow a person to tether his droid to the camera, run DPP on it, and then post the shots near instant-like?
What is truth?
