comment If I have an 85mm lens for portraits, is a 50mm useful as well?
@dpollitt - I wanted to say that a 50mm on a crop sensor has the traditional role of a 85mm on a full frame, not that 50mm and 85mm are the same (and my point was that - on an APS-C 30ish+85 combination is much more versatile than a 50+85 combination because on a Canon APS-C you get the "magic" that made 50mm so popular at ~30mm)

comment Does the convergence of video and photo technology in digital cameras have a negative impact on strictly photographic ability?
@AndrewHeath - I just want to clarify, what I'm trying to say is that over the next few years customers that traditionally only wanted still photography will demand more video and still/video combinations. Still photography is not going away but if you are a pro ignoring your customers demands is not a good move.

comment Does the convergence of video and photo technology in digital cameras have a negative impact on strictly photographic ability?
@AndrewHeath - Today most pictures are viewed on screens not on paper, where video does fit "in the same frame" - and the move from prints to screens will continue and will drag photographers, probably kicking and screaming, into a more video oriented world.
