Jan Kritzinger: In stead of Hasselblad bodies, I'd rather want to see some Hasselbald E-mount glass! Sony bodies are perfect.

Can't wait for FF Nex + M mount adapter.
Slobodan Blagojevic: Has anyone tried to explain to the manufacturer that R in SLR stands for "reflex," i.e., mirror, thus making it just as ridiculous for mirrorless cameras as the whole name itself (otherwise more appropriate for, say, p3nis-enlargement pills)?
Do you think anyone has ever tried explaining to Canon that a canon is a....
nah, too easy...
magneto shot: made in china...and u expect Leica quality.dont jump on new things by new companies and be wary of "buy buy buy" as signaled by some blogger / reviews.

Don't be a stupid numpty, if you can help it, @Francis
You know why I trust them?Because this is the second time they are releasing the 23/1.7. The first time round they scrapped the design because they were not happy with corner sharpness wide open. In my opinion, the lens IQ of the first version was acceptable for the price point, and still, they were not happy with it. This clear reluctance to release a product that they are not happy with proves to me that they are in it for the long haul.
I am going to buy a Nex 6 just so that I have in-EVF focus peaking for the 23/1.7.
Gully Foyle: I'd get a Voigtländer instead.
Except they don't make a 23/1.7, and if they did, it would cost at least twice as much. even a 25/4 costs more than the SLRmagic.
That 23/1.7 is a good reason to get a Nex 6 if ever there was one. Focus peaking in EVF will be marvelous.
I can't believe there are people on this forum who say no to f/2.8.You will always run into situations where you don't have enough light. ALWAYS.
Jan Kritzinger: The more I think about it, the more this makes sense.Sensors have gotten good enough that it isn't necessary to upgrade bodies every 3 years (hell, my 5D Mark I is still going strong).
35mm on FF is my favourite focal length by far, and my first choice for a fixed focal length camera.
Nope, Sorry. 35mm is *THE* fixed focal length camera focal length.Until they start pulling Nokia pureview shenanigans with 160MP FF sensors. Then we can have 24, 35, 50, and 80 with a "fixed" prime.
Lumia 808, I could understand, Lumia 920, I could still understand (f/2, IS) but now DPR is reporting on the next iphone too? #ugh.
AbrasiveReducer: You really have to love the 35mm focal length, exclusively, for this to make sense. They'll either have to made a wide model or an interchangable lens model at some point.
I really DO love 35mm fov. If people want wide or zoom, Nex is the answer.
Scott Greiff: Deserving of a red dot.
Now just please please please give us a more compact, more affordable APS-C version, also with a 35mm equivalent prime!
ianimal: We have RX100 and RX1 now. Maybe there will be a RX10 with APS-C sensor? I would prefer a 16-50mm F2.8 retractable power zoom lens with such a camera. Don't know if that is possible. I guess Sony will make it small and select the lens spec. to get it as small as they want. If a RX10 will ever be made. The RX1 is charming, remains me of 80's-90's small 35mm film cameras with fixed 35mm lens.
@DS: RX10 APS with a fixed prime wouldn't canibalise Nex, RX10 with zoom would.
@ ianimal: The Fuji X100 is larger than the RX1. That means that an RX10 with a 35mm equivalent lens can be even more compact than the RX1.
Most people would've preferred a zoom lens on the RX1, but most people are stupid.
Jan Kritzinger: My only complaint is that the lens is slightly bulky for the body form factor - give us a 23/2.8 APS-C RX10 the size of the RX100, for $1k! Come on Sony, Do it!
@Clint Dunn Why the hell can't Sony make both?
Dear god no, no God, NO.The RX 100 already has a zoom, why ruin the RX 10 as well?Give it a 24mm (36mm equivalent) prime that will be sharper and more compact than the gargantuan, soft, slow zoom you're proposing.
If Sony sells the RX10 for $1000 they will selll millions.
