Re: A99 & Lens Firmware

I honestly hope he either misspoke or Sony scraps and reworks a system that is apparently so proprietary and overly complex they can't get it to work with even all their top price currently selling lenses like the CZ 16-35, 85/1.4 and 135/1.8!

I'm not disappointed that this brand new system only initially works with a few lenses, it is, after all, bleeding edge technology and will go through growing pains, but from the interview it seemed to me that Sony has either deliberately crippled things or there is something FUBAR that means their 'killer app' tech on their FLAGSHIP camera can't be expanded easily even to all their currently selling lenses.
