halfwaythere: I have to pause and pick up my jaw after reading the prices.
Basically Zeiss is ripping off E mount users.
I guess DSLRs aren't dead yet since you can pick a faster Sigma 24/1.4 for less money or an excellent 85/1.8 for much less money. If the rumored Sigma 85/1.4 Art is close these Zeiss lenses are pretty pointless.
GlobalGuyUSA, the FE system is not even 2 years old and this summer the lens range will be excellent already, what lenses are you missing ? Only a very long telephoto.You forget that CANIKON took YEARS to build the same line up.
The Zeiss 25mm f/2 is a great answer to the Fuji 16mm f/1.4 !And what a good timing !
Incredible picture congrats ! What lens did you use please ?
Well deserved win !
Yes it's fantastic !
Well I see corn in the picture, you should have been disqualified !Joking, the picture is awesome, well deserved win !
LukeDuciel: I am looking (eagerly) forward to A7s mark II.
Maybe for internal 4K recording and IBIS ?
Well after 22 years of use a replacement should happen one day or the other...the thing is that ironically we need it less than before when we had 56K connections !
Same author as this photog... err.. thing:
Very interesting challenge :P
Voting starts when submission time is ended !
joe6pack: I assume stabilization works on legacy lens too? Say, user can enter the focal length, etc?
With the announcement, I think the A7 will drop below $1000 this holiday season.
Just 2 years ago one would have never imagined to get a FF camera for under 1000$ !!!
left eye: It's looking much more mature - design wise, the A7's fingerprint magnet smooth paint always troubled me, glad sony didn't miss this opportunity for a stippled finish!
But seriously yes apart from the IBIS news, I assume that larger grip houses a larger battery!!
- arh I just checked sonyalpharumours, it's 'reportedly' the same FW-50 battery ;-(
Maybe in the A9 the grip will hold 2 batteries ! :P
Now Sony please just put back the EVF in the corner !!!
MayaTlab0: Do we have any technical information explaining why, with FE OSS lenses, the lens will take care of pitch and yaw instead of the sensor ? Is it related to the range of correction possible in lens vs. in body or to the sensor heating up, for example ?Because, to me, although I can only congratulate Sony for adding IBIS on a FF mirrorless camera (and continue to despise their designers for not realising that their auto ISO implementation is subpar), it seems that it's again an example of Sony's "every six months, I want to do something new". Indeed, what's the point of developing stabilised lenses (which might possibly be a little more expensive, heavier, and harder to manufacture to a certain tolerance), if they already knew that they were going to release a stabilised body ? As far as I understand, but I may be mistaken, stabilised lenses still have an advantage in terms of correction range for certain axes, but that's mostly at the telephoto end, not the wide end.
Maybe it's simply technically work better if the lens handles the pitch and yaw, instead of the body.
zubs: With a camera launch now, for its spec it should have had 4K.
Well they can't put all the best specs in the entry level !
Too bad that it's doesn't support UHS-II...Also surprising that it weights nearly 150g more !
I am pinching myself, now there's even IBIS to my favorite system !Congrats Sony, I thought that the mount throat was too narrow to implement IBIS !
I'm very disappointed... I wanted so much a 50 000$ revamped A7S with koala leather...
darby ogill: It is supposed to be about avoiding the weight of the Nikon and Canon with the Sony 7,so please let us have a 35mm f2 thats light and compact and a similar 85mm 1.8. Who designs these things,an accountant? If I buy the 35mm 2.8 I lose 2 stops over my micro 4/3 lenses ,thus negating a lot of the advantages of the low light sensors ability.I would really love to buy a 7 but not with these lenses..all too big or too slow.Aagh!
Welcome to the world of physics :D
