That's pretty reasonable.

I wonder how many FPS it does?

The only thing that Nikon D4s and Canon 1Dx would have over it is probably a much fast AF unless Sony has improved that a lot which from the release sounds like it has been improved in low light only.

not true ! You can use Alpha lenses with phase detect and the af speed is just as fast as

with the Nikons..... also you can use the awsome Zeiss 2.8 24-70mm.......

I watched some YouTube reviews on the D3s and D4 and they will track in dang near dark. If Sony matches that for $1700.00 I would be amazed.

What do you mean?? The D4s has a 16 megapixel and the 1Dx a 18 megapixel sensor.

not true ! You can use Alpha lenses with phase detect and the af speed is just as fast as

with the Nikons..... also you can use the awsome Zeiss 2.8 24-70mm.......

Peter

Unfortunately, then you will not have any stabilization.  Even aftermarket lenses that have stab for other cameras removed it for the Alpha mount (and still charge the same).

Basically, there's no fast focusing (PDAF fast) stabilized Tele for this camera (or any A7x's).

I am confused. Is it not really 4k?
In reply to steelhead3, Apr 6, 2014

The article says it can not shoot 4k on its own.

The Sony 4k projector at my work place displays images over 4000 pixels across but this camera only goes up 3 thousand and something.

Why does the bit rate only go up to 50mbps?

Yes, Sigma kept the OF for those to enable handholding at macro distances.  But I wouldn't call them fast focusing for action shooting.   All of their OS zooms have removed OS for Sony, and still charge about the same.

What is so nice with standards, is that there are so many of them!
