it's a sigma 30mm f/1.4 and a canon t2i i've had for about 4 years. love my canon 11-16mm wide angle I got though that I use in non-bokeh craving situations.

Nikons are great too though, not a hater :D just went canon because of 3rd party lens support at the time.

I went from Canon to Nikon to a camera that felt right. One i borrowed then got my own. Not a Canon hater. I know Sony and Toshiba make sensors for both. Its just preference. After i posted i thought 50mm wouldn't fit that much in the frame. Oh well. :D

Nikon D90 the game changer. Love that camera.

Nikon is way more comfortable than Canon :p Nikon shooter here. It's a personal preference we share in common.

I took out my prime lens and SLR which I haven't used in a while just to play around:

Boy, the gold sure looks sharp. I'm leaning towards space gray but theses photos look very special.[COLOR="#808080"]

A great place to get out for a treat and play with your new toy. It sure looks great!

I concur!

Seeing these shots "in the wild", makes me want a rMB more than ever. Especially the shot comparing the iPad to the rMB, given I'm typing this on my iPad Air now and would much prefer a real keyboard.

Figuring out which color is going to be the more difficult question. I really dig the Space Gray, but like the Gold as it works better with our wood wraps. I'll have to get to a store to take a gander at both and spend some time with them to help make my decision.

Seems like Apple will be getting a few thousand dollars more of my hard earned money - as I'll likely pick up a Watch or two as well.

a laptop as your laptop's wallpaper? lol
screw the 2008 air, look at how jazzed Jobs is haha.

I've been switching the wallpaper up, and though I put it up for photographing purposes, I've actually come to like it sometimes.

Oh, sorry, left is space gray 16:10 12" MacBook. Right is silver 16:9 11" MacBook Air. There's lots of light leaking around the keys on the Air.
What resolution are you running on the new MacBook in the backlight comparison picture?

How do you find the new MacBook in comparison to the 11" Air? The screen size increase looks a lot more significant than I though it would when they're side by side in that photo.

1440 x 900. I set it that way the first day and never went back.

There's no comparison. New MB has an IPS screen so contrast is much better and there is no color shift when tilting the screen. Since it can be run at 1440 x 900, it seems more like 14" than 12", but then I have pretty good glasses. The text on screen does seem a little small sometimes, but super sharp as expected, so very readable.

Thanks, it really does look good. I used to have the 11" but switched to a rMBP for the better screen. I've wanted to switch back for the portability ever since, looks like I finally can without losing retina :)

The new keyboard backlighting looks loads better in that photo as well.
