justnuaces: Interesting, thanks! :)

But... The Specifications in imperial measures? Seriously?
Be aware of the rest of the World, please.
You people from USA are so self-centered...

I'm waiting for the next review of the new 1.97 in lens. :P

You must have purposedly ignored the metric part.

Suave: The quality of the gym photos (read: indoor sports) is pathetic.

Your attempt at an ad hominen attack is laughable.

Cause they look like crap.

Why make it mount-specific?

CosminMunteanu: Pentax had such a device in the '90s. Well, some sort of. It was a x1,7 focal lengh multiplier that could turn a manual focus Pentax lens into an AF one ;-)

Nikon had one too.

Don Sata: This camera's main feature article comments seem to be stagnated around the 500 mark. The X-Pro2 got more than 1,300 and it's not even noon of it's first day and Sony's new 6300 has about 300 already.

I believe this is quite telling of the interest a camera like this or Nikon's (400 comments) generate.

Most people don't need a $1000 camera. They don't even need a $100 camera these days.

rsenk19: It is difficult to trust the word "forever" from companies like Sony...

Leica? What of R-mount?
Nikon? How many Nikon cameras can take every variety of an F-mount lens and not lose metering, or AF or both. One?

Hugo808: Forever, or at least until the next upgrade....

Really? None of your manual Nikkors ever had to be relubed? Or have apertures cleaned? Or zoom mechanisms tightened?

Please, name a company dating to film days that has not dumped a mount at some point.

sibuzaru: Why people have that hard time to recognize their evolution? How many years took Sigma to be known to make lenses that could be better than the first party?
I remember a interview with a optics engineer talking about how computers leveled the ground in lens design, no one is unbeatable anymore.

It's not just the optical design. There are materials involved, as well as a fair bit of mechanical and electrical engineering.

How is that surprising? It's clearly aimed at a very narrow segment of shooters and there are only so many people who come here to argue about gear. In fact, I think not a single of these comments comes from a future owner.

Henry McA: A problem is the weird focal length of 21 - 30 mm on APSC. That´s not very useful, 16 - 35mm is useful, 15 - 24 would be useful but this is just a odd - why not use primes instead.

What's weird about it? That's what the first wide L zoom was - 20-35.

The only more or less succesfull compressed format replacement I've ever seen was avi with mp4.

They can stick FF Sony sensor in it for all I care. As long as it comes with a locked bootloader I will be spending my money elsewhere.

MichaelIsGreat2: Anything with Google Android is CRAP!! Windows 10 with an Intel processor would have been a much better proposition!!

And 2GB of RAM to watch 1080p videos, good luck with that!! Even 4 GB is not great with 1080p video and also with a good speed in GHz on the CPU.

I have a Windows 10 tablet. Truth be told, it ain't all that. It does play flash though.
