Panasonic drops price of professional 3D monitor

Announced back in February for $9,900, the Panasonic BT-3DL2550 25.5-inch 3D IPS monitor just got a price drop to $7,000 ($6,500 at B & H.) Unlike the home units, this professional monitor uses passive glasses (the image is polarized.) That means that the effective resolution is halved vertically, but on the plus side, the glasses are a lot cheaper.

But is the anti-3D tide rising?
Chris Nolan in announcing the next Batman film:
Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.
