Who is still doing metal AF lenses these days? Simply beautiful !
I bet Canon is working a camera with a hump too...
So Nikon has admitted that their idea of photography has not been very pure for a while
Perhaps, it would be easy for DPR to present sample shots in groups, each of which demonstrates certain quality of the camera/lens. For example: High ISO (to see noise), Landscape (to see corner performance), Bokeh effects, dynamic range etc. DPR of course need to make it clear, otherwise a series of snapshots (seemingly) without any descriptions seem a little inadequate.
Thoughts: This is likely to be the 'Camera of the Year 2013' here on DPR
Still can't forget RX100 MKII? Never mind, Sony has to try again :)

Michael Ma: I fell for the *superzoom* hype during the time I was just beginning to learn photography with the Panasonic FZ-20.
You think you will be able to gain superpowers with it by being able to see something far away that you would never be able to normally but I learned that anything over 3x is rarely ever used. Occasional bird shots, boat shots (more utility than photography), and a close up with a DOF effect if you have enough room behind the subject. But that still only equates to well below 5% of shots you would ever take for the average shooter.
My suggestion is, spend the same money for a bigger sensor (APS-C or MFT), and get a solid slightly wide 1-3x zoom lens.
Meanwhile, Sony put a full frame sensor into a body that has similar size of G16. Canon is dreaming...in Japan only
DPR: would it make more sense from now on to have a forum called: a-mount cameras and e-mount cameras. The current arrangement: DSLR/SLT and NEX has been outdated by Sony's new yet confusing naming system: A3000 and A7/r are only the beginning...
Any soap company is going to sue Nikon?
Nukunukoo: With everything said, now's the best time to look for bargain D600s. Never had problems with mine, and we are in dire need for another FF.
Anadrol: @yabokkie I think everyone here is sick of your trolling.
I was going to ask him to give us a list of camera gear he has, so we could have a trolling-festival together...
The E-mount kit lens 18-55 looks more balanced on this body. Also the newly announced 18-105 or old 18-200 lenses should also feel better on this type of body.
backayonder: At last a viewfinder.
Not just a viewfinder, a tiltable viewfinder
Rod McD: Sony, as impressive as the RX1 & RX1R are, please give us what everyone is actually waiting for - the interchangeable lens version. One FL is too limiting for most photographers. Please give us a scaled up FF NEX with a built-in EVF, external controls, and a suite of matched primes. I'm thinking 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.4 and 90/2.8 - modest speeds to keep them small and light. Best available AF. Environmentally sealed. No dearer than a D600. They'd sell. Thank you.
I wish Sony is my Santa baby...
perfect camera for street photography
'RAW edition' in digital photography is confusing
tbower: Someone explain to me the attraction of a camera with a fixed lens....I personally couldn't live with it, especially when it costs nearly USD1,000.
try it, or try to go out with one prime lens on your existing camera. Try to use your feet and see how you feel. I am sure you 'could live with it'...
3dreal: Why sony-alpha? Because sigma seems to build sony-lenses for sony(the company).
It is fine to have such a speedy lens. But when it comes to quality then the new zeiss will beat them all. Distagon 55/1.4 to be the first, at 3000 euro for each of them.
You bought shares from ZEISS?
This lens is going to hurt the sales of lenses such as Nikon 17-55, that is more expensive, almost as heavy and slower.
