Anfy: Does anybody know if the USB dock will work with all existing AF Sigma lenses or just the newer ones?
Actually, according to Sigma the dock suits all three of the new product lines (ie. including "Contemporary" models such as the new 17-70/4).
But it won't work with previous models.
Ok, so there seems to be some confusion in management's mind as to how much Hassy technical input there was to the prototypes (mock-ups) on display that seem to be internally identified as NEX-7s.That's all fine, and the NEX-7 seems a technically competent basis for a mirrorless that will have the Hasselblad name attached to it.
But my first (and strong) reaction to the Lunar wasn't so much about the technical details, just the plain fugliness of the camera. My first impression was of a NEX covered in modelling clay.I didn't notice Mr. Alessandrini addressing that issue, but rather getting defensive about things that don't seem to be fundamental problems.
The most interesting news (for me) from Olympus is the new 15mm/8 lens. But no mention of it here? What gives?
As a fixed-aperture manual-(2-step)-focus lens it should even work on Pany bodies (although the lack of in-body stabilisation might be a drawback at f/8). At the suggested price it's almost a no-brainer: a slightly expensive lens cap that doubles as a super-cheap 30mm-e walkaround lens. It'll be interesting to hear more about it over time.
But not even a mention? Had me double-checking that I wasn't imagining it. :)
