Along with m43, only Fuji X-system is becoming an serious alternative for photographer wanting to go mirrorless route.
expressivecanvas: I was about 99% sure I will be moving to a Pentax system to replace my obsolete Olympus system but if Tamron is going to be passing on making lenses in Pentax mount from now on, I might need to reevaluate. I'm not implying that I think this particular lens will be a 'good' lens, but Tamron does indeed make some really nice, fast lenses. If they are dropping Pentax, I definitely need to reevaluate systems...
its not just Tamron who has stopped making lenses for Pentax, Zeiss and Sigma also have stopped making lenses for Pentax K-mount.
Couscousdelight: But why not the 20Mpxl sensor with Dual AF ? It would fit perfectly a...mirrorless.
Canon thinks that can cannibalise sale of 70D if Dual pixel AF is put inside lower end bodies.
I hope the quality control of Nikon is upto the mark with this new release. They do innovate in camera design and operability but it is always the quality control and support division that falls behind.
mind blowing images. saw it two days back.
wootpile: Is this the ultimate macro machine?
lets wait for some reviews, one of the reasons why superzooms and premium compacts are useful while travelling light.
can anyone explain how dpreview has missed announcement of 15mm f/1.7 lens?
interesting set of cameras, lets see if Sony releases good lenses or just keep adding insane number of new bodies to their lineup.
Chaitanya S: Instead of accepting issues with D600 and provide service to faulty cameras they just release a new camera leaving users of old camera frustrated. Nikon needs to get their act up soon or they will be in trouble.
Nikon is not replacing the faulty D600s in India. A friend of mine owns the D600 which has oil leak problems and so far he has sent that camera 7 times for service in last 5 months with no avail.

Great idea. Lets wait and watch how it sells.
beauty of Fuji X camera was the retro design and built in viewfinder and this new camera ruins it. Also the rear input dial is in awkward position.
Only thing Olympus and Panasonic should do now is slow down the release of new cameras.
micro 4/3 just got a lot more serious mirrorless format.
boring and overpriced like most of the recently accessories released by Nikon. Also it looks like a 1-2$ cheap flashlight that is available in one of those stores selling cheap chinese products.
Sony always has been taking risks with product design and has pushed some really innovative products in market. Lets hope these two camera modules really sell well.
nice review. to the point and not too long.
take a look at Leica's page about the record before commenting jealously about this mans feat:http://lavidaleica.com/content/think-youve-got-gas
yabokkie: okay Sony still need time to get Canon style dual-pixel PDAF but it doesn't say high-speed imager CDAF either. why not they just get a Panasonic sensor?
unless sony pays for license dual-pixel PDAF in cameras other than Canon would be impossible. Also some reason Sony has forgot to add external controls on this camera that would be helpful to many advanced users.
again, why use plastic mount on a lens? Metal mount wouldn't add more than 2-3$ to Bill of materials for canon while building a lens.
