Nobody needs +5 stop pull if he or she shot with an EVF.
I have to give Leica an accolade for addressing the need for their customers which are mostly "12 o'clock flashers".
Oh, a Leiwei phone.
One big evidence that the tide has changed.
steelhead3: Why does DPreview refer to this cameras as a"compact"; it is not designed as such unless you compare it to my A900 and Minolta 600f4 at 15lbs.
Compared it with a 150-600mm zoom lens, yes it is some man's dream.
This is not a good new for the camera division since they are not the profit center.
photonius: As pointed out by SickVodka, it's not really a Swiss company. To summarise findings of many people: The Swiss person (of the two person shareholding company) is involved in several other companies, the location in Baar is not surprisingly in the canton with the lowest taxes in Switzerland. Many other international companies locate their tax headquarters there. The Foreign Investor of this company is Polish, and is the owner of foto-tip. This was actually one of the key companies to bring the Samyang lenses to Europe, the first European Web site for Samyang was Polish. So, it looks like the IRIX brand is simply a high class product from Samyang. Not sure if Samyang themselves will come out with this product, or if this is really the brainchild of the Polish entrepreneur to make improved Samyang products. Samyang still sells their lenses to other resellers for rebranding. But Samyang has now established its own reputation, maybe now branching out to higher level (like Lexus vs Toyota)
Volvo is owned by the Chinese but is it still a Volvo?
What is the recommended adapter for Sony A7x?
infomatique: I noticed in a video that the lens was stamped made in Korea
As long as it is not North Korea, it's ok to me.The stella Zony 55/1.8 is made in Thailand by the way. That's why it is $700 instead of $4000 (Otus).
Rather make money by volume. More joys and more jobs.
I would have been jumping for joys. Unfortunately it is a little too late after a damage done by an A7R2 and its stellar lenses.
ZurichPhoto: Nice! I bought them 2 months ago. My Bad luck.
Despite that, a sincere thanks to Google. Pretty cool!
Tieu Ngao: Sigma lenses are on the heavy side. Sony bodies are on the light side. This combination is not balance for my taste.
Can't be any heavier than old legacy MF lens that majority of A7x Sony owners have been using thou
Me too Tamron?
Don't hear much bragging about the sensor. I have my suspicion. Don't disappoint me Canon.
Great job. 38Mpx plus 5 axis IBIS makes Sony A7Rii look like an overpriced camera.
love_them_all: Everything looks interesting until the price tag bit.
Yes it is very pricy for a China brand adapter. I have not seen any more expensive Kipon adapter on Amazon. Performance must be good to match the asking price.
But rest assured, other Chinese manufacturers will clone their electronics, and cheap one will come out in few months.
Great job. What's next? Flash adapter please.
Big thank you to Sony for making cameras to make use of all those forever lasting lenses.
A thought of selling Fuji gears to go all in with Sony just came to my mind yesterday. OK I hang on to them.
