A future problem?  

So all my mobile photos and movies go to Google Photos which I like a lot.  I opted for full quality using Google Drive space.  Google Photos will upload everything to the cloud and afterwards, all the pictures and movies are sync'ed from the cloud to my laptop's local Google Drive folder. 

But what if, at some point in the future,  this local Google Drive folder is getting too large? Yes, I can easily move them away from my laptop's harddisk and archive them somewhere (on my NAS for example), but then the Google Drive app on my laptop would sync the removal of the pictures and movies to the cloud and then I wouldn't see them on my iPhone anymore.  That great timeline, all that history, will be gone from my Phone :(.

I'm not aware that you can exclude certain folders from sync'ing to the desktop.  Would be a perfect solution though..

Questions - Mobile  - 
 
On the iPhone, it seems that the iOS photo app is sync'ing with Google Photos? So if I delete a photo in the native photo app, 2 seconds later it's also deleted from Google Photos app. Is that correct?  I was hoping I could delete all photos from the ios photo app and keep them only in Google Photos? Obviously, this would save space on the iPhone.  Or am I seeing this the wrong way? Thanks for helping!

+Kris Van de Vijver yes, I just found out this myself when doing a test for what you described above :).  I'm guessing it does this because it may use the local copy to display the thumbnail and thus display the photos faster.  When you delete it, it doesn't get that info again until it re-syncs next time and if the local copy isn't there, then it has to get it from the cloud backup.

..."You can get adapters to use ANY lens, really. Leica, Canon, Nikon, etc., etc. It’s a pretty cool idea to use these camera smarts on your other full-frame lenses you’ve been collecting your whole life."...

But will it maintain AF ?
