Boerseuntjie: Maybe we will see an affordable Medium format from Sony...Please
Lets jsut get a FF Nex first, thanks
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 don't understand people, if you want touch screen, get the 5R, if you want an EVF, get Nex 6... Jeez, it's not that hard!
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.
abi170845: With all the FF and APS, it's hard to justify their prices when a brand new old stock 5dmk2 cost onlly about 1700.
yeah, but it's a crap
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.
foto guy: Specs don't mean much. I'll never buy a camera with the Sony name on it. Can't do much about the sensor, though...
Can't do much about stupid people either...
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!
