Thus far, Sony has only released four lenses for the A7 cameras. And they have the nerve to present the camera at the Photography Show with APS-C mounted lenses: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2014/03/06/the-photography-show-2014-tidbits-from-the-show-floor/10

Is this not a clear indication that the selection of FE optics is too limited? When they should have been presenting new FE lenses, they must instead present the camera with the newest in crop lenses instead. To me, this almost admitting that despite the camera being good, there is a lack of support for it.

The A7 still feels new. But it was actually released in november last year. Thats nearly five months ago. And despite the thing selling out like hot cakes, no third party lens manufacturer has announced anything for the FE mount.

Should they not have done so by now? I think its a bit wierd that big brand Sony is announcing such a good, expensive and revolutionary camera, but yet they have no cooperation with brands like Sigma, Tamron or Voigtlander to offer more choices in the FE-line.

This is a professional grade camera, and professionals need options. There has been several photography expos, shows and events they could have used to present FE optics on, but still they have not. How long is it going to take?

Reading through the post, I can't help being amused.

1. You don't own the A7

2. You have no understanding of camera introduction and roll-out, by ALL companies

3. You have no understanding of the word roadmap

4. You respond to responses provocatively

5. You have been on this alias since X-mas, but only activated it recently, with over half of your posts in this thread.

6. Your comments repeatedly are incorrect - see the many responses

7. You don't mind attacking people

8. You are very much like some others, that eventually all went elsewhere

Have your fun here, but don't expect to be taken seriously with this approach...
