The second to fourth paragraphs in the Conclusion Section of DPR's Lytro review says it all. I'm so glad I fought the Acquisition Syndrome demons and did NOT put myself on the pre-order list. Being on the cutting edge does mean that blood is drawn, mostly the ones brave enough to take the plunge. I've spilled enough technology blood in my time that I'm glad I missed this blade. Maybe Gen2 will improve the situation.
