User6310699194: The failure of the powerful Samsung shows that the market of photographic equipments is not limited to the camera body. This is the easiest part to manufacture. In the near future only the complete photographic system manufacturers will survive: Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fujifilm and Panasonic/Leica. After having invested millions of dollars, Sony will also fail, but will keep still trying…

>Sony will also fail, but will keep still trying…
Wishful thinking? Don't hold your breath.
BTW: It's common knowledge that most consumers buy Canon and Nikon to get that "big boy" brand name. They rarely invest in good glass or systems.

Daniel from Bavaria: Ok, nice lens. But I'll stick to my Fuji 60mm lens.

1. I own it aleady
2. It's not that pricy
3. IQ is lovely, cannot imagine the Zeiss is realy better
4. it is a bit brighter and longer AND much smaller and lighter
5. for me 1:2 on APS is most of the time good enough

But choices are always good to have.

I really think that on the x-mount side with the really good Fuji lenses it's a tough run for Zeiss.

Naveed Akhtar: Sony is no doubt the bravest of all!! but also the most silly!!

So am really worried for them .. as a brand I always like it, but with these expensive camera and lenses with limited lens catalogue, am quite seriously concerned for them.

The camera specs are no doubt impressive, design also looks good to me. But if they will ever be able to penetrate into very serious professionals sector with these tools?

>It's same as smart phone camera but better iq.
You must have an awesome smart phone to come to this insightful conclusion.

Note to Digital Camera World: Congratulations on the perfect Rube Goldberg solution on how to destroy a pretty nice camera.

forpetessake: It was clear to even the most dimwitted individual with a science degree that this was an absolutely unworkable and stupid idea. The only reason for the existence of that project was to fleece the investors. Investing in such projects usually summarized as 3F: family, friends, and fools. Amazing how many investors are in the third category.

Sir, as right as you may be, you come across like a pompous boor.

it photo: Welcome to the beginning of the end of photography. Cameras will merge with videocameras and phones and PC's. Buying a Nikon you will first need to install Windows (with a code of course), then login with your username (or if you let your wife use it she will login with her own password and have her own personalized menus) . Then you will install your lenses, then the filters and finally the... camera strap (because it will also have something proprietary built-in). Built-in GPS and WiFi will transmit photos to the cloud. This is not photography, this is COMPUTING!

"It photo" doesn't sound like a technophobe. Instead you sound naive regarding the appropriate application of technology. In addition, your attack of someone you nothing about weakens your argument considerably.

wakaba: A.) take a camera that can hardly resolve 1200lpm
-slow AF
-no viewfinder
-supersmall sensor
-heavy incameraprocessing
-hardly enough battery power to run a "big" AF-lens
B.) stick an adapterring on
-that has additional glass in it
- lots of electric leads
-is generic to lenses
C.) stick an expensive lens on
-that can resolve 2000lpm
-is hardly compatible with the ring

...and get what exactly? Better pictures? DoA.

I find your smug and know-it-all attitude quite refreshing. Please keep sharing your vast and thought-provoking photographic knowledge with us.
