RichRMA: If they're going to round numbers, why not say 8 times and 2 times as strong instead of 800% and 200%?
I guess that 800% seems more impressive than just 8.
nathantw: Actually looks good. Thanks for the samples. One tip, though, 85mm is good for closeup portraits and the 24mm isn't.
Well, maybe Rishi Sanyal's models have very small noses, and he needs a close shot with a 24mm lens to balance it !
WOW you were very close ! Where were you ?
Allen Yang: Why not a used D600 with a cheap Tamron 28-70 at a little more than 1 grand bucks? Yeah,I know, this combination is heavier and bigger,but the IQ you get is much higher than this Forrest Gump! (I like the movie though)
You're comparing kumquats and watermelons !
Anadrol: It's also unbelievable that some people rated it 2 ! Such a masterpiece !
True, but I also guess that some competitors downvote others.

If this lens offers 1:1 magnification and a 180mm lens offers 1:1 too,could someone explain me why their image would differ ?Both lens should cast about the same information to the sensor because they are both 1:1 lenses.
Aside that the 15mm lens has a much higher depth of field.
Silmarion: I consumer WANT FE24-70 F2.8 OSS - I can only wait till Christmas. Now Sony listen to this and go make it.
Because he stated that they will release F2.8 zooms !
I hope that this 24-70 will be better than the current one...
Anadrol: Sigma I'd really like a 15-35mm f/2.8 PLEASE !
Thank you I didn't know about it !
Now I wonder about its IQ.
Sigma I'd really like a 15-35mm f/2.8 PLEASE !
WOW ! Simply the very best astrophotography that I have seen !
Would it be possible to get a high res file please ? Thanks !
What frog ??
Kidding, congrats !
DuxX: Fantastic camera but I can't shoot without OVF. Sorry Sony.
All we need is higher resolution and faster EVF, EVF is the future.
You have exposition and focus control, additional infos... no mirror shock.
Nanospeed1: Here is a petition for Sony for the uncompressed RAW implementation.... Please sign it if that's a critical issue for you (as it certainly is for me!)
I signed, please sign too you all !
brycesteiner: Still only USB 2? What's the deal? some of us use our cameras as the card reader!
Yes that's a shame !
Vanitas Photo: I simply love it!!! My only complaint (as an A7 owner) is why the flying f$%! they continue to use the same tiny little battery...
I would seriously urge sony to at least offer a large battery with high capacity to be used in the battery grip of the A7 cameras! :)
But the rest of the camera is pure genius!!! And I would love to see the difference in speed of AF with Canon glass vs older A7's
Great stuff :)
There should be 2 batteries in the grip !
Am I the only one shocked by the price ? 3200 $ !!!
The A7R cost initially 2300 USD...
The RX1 does enter a large jacket pocket, the RX2 should even be smaller...
The Leica Q is too big to enter a pocket, what's the advantage then to have a fixed lens ???
martindpr: What is the purpose of having a B&W camera in the XXI century?
Shoot color and then desaturate! Or let me guess: If you have a B&W project, you leave your D810 (or your 5D3/5Ds) at home, go buy one Leica and do the job 100% better than you would have done it with your D810??
"brings the black-and-white-only concept up to date", they should have said "brings the date back to the old black and white concept"
A 36 MP Bayer sensor is more like a 18 MP BW sensor...But RAW development has apparently much more latitude with a Bayer sensor.
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.
