With high-res samples and AF assessment, why? The only review I found is only about video, of no interest to me.

Well, no production models have shipped out yet and we are still just shy of a month away before it ships (ships at the end of June in the US).

I'd expect as it gets closer to the release date, we'll start to see more information and examples about its picture taking capabilities.

1) Sony marketing doesn't have any production samples to hand out to reviewers yet, and/or

2) Sony marketing only has pre-production samples to hand out. In this case Sony probably prohibits reviewers from publishing their evaluations of IQ and functionality.

I'm looking forwards to that kind of review, too. It looks like a really promising camera in itself, and it also showcases new technology that I hope will find its way into some alpha-mount cameras within the next year or so.

Reasons given, however you will get information sooner if you go to the E mount forum with questions about E mount cameras.
