In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: Ca. $1500! That's cheap! For a Zeiss. Are they coming to their marketing senses? Will Leitz follow?

You dont have to buy this cheap lenses. nobody forced you.

Siobhan A: LOL!!!!
Sony finally has something to compete with the 2 year old FZ1000 and is selling it for 4X the price.

But hilariously Sony again left off PDAF or DFD type AF, so this camera will again be a complete fail for anyone want to take pictures of something moving.

If I remember. Correctly the panasonic you talk.about starts from 28mm so in that case pana is quite inferior in range since 24 and 28 and not close.

The Squire: I wonder why GM branded rather than Sony-Zeiss branded?

@ Marty4650
"Do you honestly think Leica designs those Leica branded lenses on Panasonic cameras? Now remember, even the cheapest Lumix P&S camera says "Leica" on it."

Sure Marty Leica is just 1 person designing product to just 1 standard. There is no way in hell they could vary on design and standard and efforts to which they design things.

""Zeiss branded lenses" and probably designs them as well."

With probably anything is possible. Probably casio making all the m43 cameras, who knows. We can always use probably to discredit anything that is well known and out there for years.

brownie314: So, announce a new aps-c body along with some new ff glass. Makes sense.

Brownie obviously you will decide what is good on their camera bodies when they pay for it. Which other camera brands you decide what combinations are good?

Agree with sarcasm. What was sony thinking, obviously none of these lenses work on APC camera. What waste of lenses.

aramgrg: Sounds like a good lens, until one sees the price.
How comes a lens covering 4 times smaller area is more expensive than canon and nikon ones?
Well, they know the market better. Not for me for sure.

you cant back up what you said. Just as I thought.

@nzmacro , why should I post anything??
First lets clear what I wrote. Are you saying that a FF user who can use 600mm lens at F8 does not understand about using 600mm lens.

Is this your point??

First lets clear this.

PS "So please show us what you get from your club :-)"

Only a child responses like this. If your claim is that you can shoot better than all the FF shooters then you are kidding yourself.

"You have no idea what a 300mm can do on an m4/3 sensor, so leave that to those that actually do. "

Ah the arrogance of knowledge.
Do you think no-one who uses FF knows what 600mm F8 lens can do on FF.

Or only the m43 users can know stuff. Is it a special club?

Boss of Sony: Canon 100-400L IS or 400 f5.6L on APS-C would offer same focal length, similar performance for half the price.

@ Hen3ry This is what he said, he will prefer that combo.

In reply to:

Marc Ramirez: Need 4 times the light to expose the larger ff sensor, so f8 dof equivalence. Or crop a 300 f8 full frame sensor to m43 levels and see how the images compare.

"Marc give it a break, when your using a 300mm most dont care about DOF eqivalence, we care about getting optical reach."

A pentax Q with 135mm lens would make more sense to you as it would be much cheaper.

In reply to:

RichRMA: Too bad no Sony mount. It's a lot better deal than nearly $1500 for a Zeiss 21mm Loxia that's slow at f/2.8

Only you would not know how to use this lens on sony e mount. Rest of us can buy lens adaptors.

In reply to:

Edgar_in_Indy: Gotta love how they measure sensors using a combination of fractions and decimals. Who came up with that idea?

"You make some valid points, and some of it is debatable. But you're missing an obvious point...why use fractions at all?"

for comparison for people who want to compare. The site was not designed to please you, you know.

You can use all the integers you want when you design such site for yourself. It is annoying if someone is forcing his opinion down other peoples throat. You made a point, we heard it.

If you are really that adamant, they use fractions because they can, its their site.

In reply to:

watson076: I'm curios how well does Pentax sell ? In my 15 years of shooting I have never seen a single Pentax body at any events, tourist destinations, photo walks etc. I'm not knocking the brand, I know there are people that swear by Pentax, but what will a full frame body offer ? This is already a crowded market that is dominated by Nikon/Canon with a small percentage of detractors enjoying the Sony A series.

"No Pentax hasn't "survived". They've been bought and sold by a filter company and now owned by a copier company."

True as another copier company is top seller, so may be pentax`s day are changing and they will be selling more.

Pentax has survived from 60s in market without selling cameras , now imagine how great they would be if they actually made and sold cameras such that YOU can see them.

In reply to:

Antahkarana: For me, it would have to be a low-light monster. It has to compare favorably with Sony's low-light performance. Around 36 megapixels is enough.

The only reason why I would invest in a new full-frame system is if the camera maker shows it is serious about lens development and has a roadmap for development. No roadmap = no sale.

The rest of my criteria:

- Extremely weather-sealed body
- Super Durable Lenses
- amazing, High Quality Glass - give me a reason why I should switch from CaNikon/Fuji/Sony.
- EVF is preferable
- PC sync socket
- higher flash sync shutter speed than other FF cameras
- make the camera menus easy to navigate. conduct product testing with dpreview and general public prior to launch.
- allow the camera firmware to be hackable so enthusiasts can tweak the performance, menu structure, etc.
- Call Google/Apple and see if you can cooperate on making this camera bridge the gap.

and as I mentioned above:

- AMAZING LOW-LIGHT PERFORMANCE
- LENS ROADMAP

it will use sony sensor so low light thing is given.

In reply to:

Marty4650: I suppose this fills a gap for the Pentax users between the K3 and the 645Z. But I really wonder if full frame Pentax is necessary? There are over a dozen full frame cameras currently available on the market, and Pentax might need a whole new line of lenses for it. And the K3 is pretty darn good.

I guess the market will decide. A few Pentax users will love it and buy it, but I doubt it will attract many converts from other brands with deep lens catalogs.

they can stop making it after i buy one.

joyclick: thank God at last it dawned on Sony.Wish they listened more to people.

@Just a Photographer,

"They are still junk.
Handling sucks, and a system is more then a camera alone."

Change your name to "Just a Deluded One" , this is the way you sound like.

Do you have any other nonesense for our amusement?

Tieu Ngao: All the new Sony cameras in 2015 are optimistically priced. Perhaps people at Sony think that they're now a dominant force in the industry?

Hey rooru sony may be smart but people are not dumb.

In reply to:

bernardf12: Sony's sensors are becoming so light-sensitive that their lab is going to suck all the photons out of the universe by accident one day. Let's hope they fix the 11 Bit lossy compression issue before then.

Then you get compressed photons. Take less than universe to store.

In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: 25 mm F0.95 sounds impressive, but it has the same DOF as a 50 mm F2 for FF and a 35 mm F1.4 for APS-C. Not all that fantastic.

"It never fails, every time there is an announcement for a fast M4/3 lens there is a douche who will do the FF equivalence math for us."

Probably the douche does not see point of spending money on something that could be done so cheaply on another format.

You clearly feel smart with your choices so go ahead. I would rather use my 50mm f1.2 on FF and wait for people like you to get there in few years if you could afford whatever ultra fast is needed in m43 to catch that f1.2
