Marty4650: I never did understand why Sony had IBIS on their DSLRs and DSLTs but not on their NEX and Alpha E cameras. So now a great camera just got better.

A very smart move by Sony.

If Sony is lucky, then Nikon and Canon aren't paying attention again.

I think main reason for not having IBIS in E-mount bodies is to keep these cameras as small as possible. Another reason is overheating, witch is difficult to control in such small bodies. I think Sony has made right decision and introduce IBIS in FF mirrorless. Question remains, will we see IBIS in APS-C bodies.

capanikon: Eh. Canikon mirrorless is gonna crush Sony whenever they get around to taking mirrors seriously.

Probably. The camera will be called Nikon 1 MkII. You can get one in pink :-)

abortabort: Genuine question, but why are Sony the only brand to offer constant aperture or near constant in these kinds of crop lenses? They have the 16-80mm f3.5-4.5, 16-70mm f4 and 18-105mm f4... yet everyone else seems to be f3.5-5.6 (or not offer one at all)?

Good point. My guess is that Sony is more video oriented that other brands, specially Nikon and Pentax. Sony have great e-mount dedicated video cameras. Note that 16-70mm f4 and 18-105mm f4 are for e-mount (read: for mirrorless cameras) witch are very good for video. Also note that 18-105mm f4 is PowerZoom lens, hence very good video lens.

Jokica: If Samsung is my company, I would buy Pentax along with Ricoh.

Exactly. Pentax/Ricoh don`t have what Samsung have (consumer electronics giant, cell phone giant, LCD, resources, etc). Samsung don`t have what Pentax/Ricoh have: Good photo brand, legacy, army of loyal users, etc. Ricoh copy machines and other products will came as bonus to Samsung.

Jim Salvas: If you want weird bokeh, you can just put a coarse diffraction grate in front of a longish lens and shoot with a wide aperture. I did this pic by poking holes in a piece of black foil with a pencil. I then mounted this in a spare filter ring and put it on the front of a 100mm f2.8 lens and shot wide open.

The in-focus parts of the image stay relatively sharp and the out of focus stuff breaks up into as many images as you have holes in the grate. In between, you get beaucoup bokeh.

That would be great, thanks! I will revisit this thread tomorrow. Looking forward to your post!

Hi, Jim.
I just saw your sample, it looks great.
Thanks for the wonderful idea. I would very much like to see picture of your setup, even better, the video about it. If there is a link, please share it.
Thanks!

Thoughts: Any soap company is going to sue Nikon?

Err, probably. And oil company will sue Nikon for collection their oil on D600 sensor. So, Nikon is going ahead.

At least, Nikon can be safe with V2. The camera is so ugly, no one will want to copy it :-)
