Why The Hobbit's 48fps Is a Good Thing

Saw it last night at midnight. Once they got out of Bilbo's house and got into the scenery it was very easy to get used to the speed and clarity of the surroundings. Within the house it did seem a bit strange. A lot of the whining about the 'soap opera' affect was just FUD.
