looks like a nex clone with a smaller sensor, sort of like a pentax Q
jerrith: How about Sony lenses? Since us Sony shooters are not using Canikon hardware this is of no use to us.It seems to me that Sony is still getting ignored, while Canikon get tons of attention :-(
DXO will come out comparing the sony 70/200 with the 35 f1.4
I like this new approach to reviews (the only downside will be to feed the people who want to find something wrong with a camera)
It is a great commentary of the last generation's response to the forces of left and right being played out before WWII. Most people seemed to be in the antifaciest mold after the war, but we allowed Franco to persist for 30 years. Many now seem to support the right as correct, not realizing hate is not going to earn you a ticket to heaven.
ItsNotThatEasy: Lol...Beards, tattoos, the word "sustainable", pictures tagged "Portland, Oregon" and former musicians who weren't good enough to make it in music so they defaulted to photography. Wow...How many times can you say "Hipster"?
You have something against Portland Oregon?
steelhead3: I down loaded Nik and windows won't open the file. I then went to my email and tried it that way and same thing, mac is in the name under windows download, do they have links reversed?
Not if you don't get another e mail or buy again

Canon is getting as bad as Sony, releasing a camera a month with very little changes between models.
Is Nikon saying that warranty will not be voided if you clean the sensor yourself?
I love all these m4/3 photographer comments, it reminds me of sony adherents 5 years ago. Remember Oly fans, you are in the sony camp now.
skimble: whatever the youth culture Romania meant to be it is an outrage displaying such culture and promoting it in any way. Cultures are their to be changed and I hope this is one of them. I would not think anyone thinks its nice to see shrink heads of children just because it was culture in some south american tribes.
If you believe that, I have a bridge you may be interested in.
I love it...esp. the Brits whose soldiers were bearskin hats killed in a former colony (Canada).
FinDERP: 3D images with a single lens? DAMN YO!
the sony a77 also is 3d capable (never have tried it though)
marike6: Sony made a big gamble by dropping the OVF on all their cameras. A top level pentaprism OVF will always be the state-of-the-art, while in one or two years time, the A99 EVF will be old technology, superseded by new models. Just ask Fuji X-Pro1 users how they felt when the X-E1 came out with a higher specified EVF. So perhaps one of the negatives of adopting an evolving technology like EVF is an increased need to upgrade. Whereas a 100% OVF of a 5D3, D800 or A900 will always be about as good as it gets.
It is interesting that Ovf are considered the same and equal to each other. I would never accept the OVF found in the d800 and d600 after owning an a900.
We are watching the death rattle of a large software Company. cs6 was not worth upgrading from cs5 except for the upgrade path and now this. Adobe is in a position to be bought out and their subscription business is a sweetener for the potential suitor.
Joe Ogiba: I would rather pay $800 more for the FF Sony RX1, APS-C compacts are a dime a dozen but there are very few FF compacts under $3k.
I am sure Hassey will be bring a bejeweled rx1 out for those that think sony is not the brand for envy.
steelhead3: I noticed that the dim viewfinder wasn't discussed other than to say that the 600 experience is the same as the 800 and 4. Having tried the camera out in the store, I was impressed with its shutter and responsiveness. The viewfinder dimness was a real let down however.
I turned it on and took photos in 2 different stores (big boxers like Costco and Best buy) with fellow consumers coming to the same conclusion, the viewfinder is unacceptably dark. You being used to a crop VF probably explains your enthusiasm, I have shooting Full Frame for a number of years, and maybe that can explain my less than glowing report. I am looking for a cheap alternative to my primary system since EVF in FF don't make a lot of sense unless you do video.

RubberDials: Every other camera manufacturer has centre pinch caps - Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus - even Minolta had them.
There's me thinking it's finally time for Canon to come clean with it's users and give them in-body IS and they roll out centre-pinch caps. Simply amazing.
Who wants to wait for the image to stabilize; with IBIS it is the instant you release the shutter.
I think Sony makes a 24 f2, a 35 1.4, and a 50 1.4 with IBIS, what am I missing here?
