DPReview says that Rokton has developed a round sensor that is 43 mm in
diameter -- the same as the diagonal on 35 mm frame. They plan on
putting it in their new mirrorless DSLR that will have interchangeable
lens mounts -- you will be able to use nearly every lens for 35 mm
cameras ever made.

Yes, I know.

Great news, their 12-400mm f/1.8-f/2 lens is the best.

Especially useful for those fisheye lenses. I hope high-street printers
will follow by offering round prints. Can't wait for a round monitor
with an inbuilt camera - it can double as a bathroom mirror.

Yeah, but $600 for a lens hood is a bit much. Fortunately, the cup from
a Starbucks "Plenta" fits perfectly.

Unfortunately, no. Due to the tight economy worldwide, the G20 nations
have agreed that April 1 will last only 12 hours.
