D1N0: Pretty good specs. Pity it still looks like a blob. Wondering about the new sensor and about low-light AF. The rear lcd looks solid.
Oh a $25 adaptor for your old flash
CameraLabTester: Sony has to lift their ergonomic design game on their flagship camera because... it doesn't really look like a flagship.
The design, shape and gadget controls look tired and copied over from competitors.
Perhaps Sony should form a new team totally unrelated to the mediocre staff running and producing the ergonomic design of the cameras.
I find the Sony A77 and A99 very ergonomically designed, certainly easier to use then the equivalent Canikons.
Evildogofdoom: This is most likely an issue with the lubrication used on the shutter assembly. If to much grease or a changed lubricant specification was used,during the manufacture of the camera, there is a risk of excess grease in the mirror box, landing on the sensor. This would require wet cleaning to remove and would likely become less of an issue with an increased number of shutter actuations.
Not 'speculation', unfortunately I have had this experience with a previous camera (Sony A580). For the first 3 months I had to carry out multiple wet cleans to remove oil / grease. After around 4000 shutter actuations, there has been no signs of any oil.

Lucas_: Why wait if you can have it all with an A99 in a couple of weeks and for a lower price?I know, it comes from a house appliance and Pro video manufacturer..., which coincidentally is making the best image sensors in the world and most camera manufacturers ( but Canon... ) are buying them! Also, you have lots invested in other mounts' lenses. Well, good luck then!
How sad people are so insecure, that they feel threatened by another product.
And Zeiss announce 3 E-mount lenses the same day. I think this is related, as it will help Hasselblad market the cameras to their rich clientele, any mention of Sony will be in very small letters!
Edmond Leung: It seems full frame is already the trend...Yesterday was Sony...Today is Nikon...Where is the low-priced "full frame" for Canon and Pentax?I'm doubt how long can 4/3 stay in the market.4/3 and APSC may be faded out very quickly.
I would look at sales rather then model releases. FF is going to remain a minority taste if a "cheap" camera is $2,000. M4/3 and APS will remain the best sellers in DSLR and EVIL cameras
rjx: Hey Zeiss, would it be too much to ask for a few zoom lenses in ZF / ZE mounts that cost around $1500 - $2500?
I think many photographers would go absolutely nuts for an UWA zoom. And something around 24-70.
The 16-80 is not up to the normal CZ mechanical quality, while the 24-70 and 16-35 certainly are. They all have the optical quality of German made lenses.
