Anadrol: Making a camera with 3G and Android... but that doesn't make calls, how stupid is that !

I hope that Cyanogen mod will be ported to it !

the 3g is for Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox.
It would look a bit silly making phone calls on your camera.

Devorama: Wouldn't your thumb be resting right on the touchscreen when you hold the camera normally?

No, the strip on the right only looks narrow - remember, this thing has a 4.8" screen!

AZBlue: Samsung is good at two things: 1) stealing, and 2) throwing lots of darts hoping one of them sticks. This company can't think its way out of a cardboard box. I will never buy anything they make. Con artists.

Would've been nice if it had less zoom and a larger sensor.
Guess I'll have to wait for Sony to bring out an Android version of the RX100.

WHY 21x optical zoom for the love of all that is good WHYYYYYYY

5x zoom with a larger sensor, and I would've bought this.

photofan1986: Sony, come on, enough cameras already! We want decent lenses, as well as some pancakes!

I must say, PDAF is very welcome.

Oh dear...

What I learnt from DPR comments: People are stupid.

Only problem is I can't update the firmware on my Eos 3 - guess I won't be getting this lens after all.

Sucks.

AngryCorgi: Give me a ring when AF works too. Until then, this is NOT worth US$400, IMO.

The lack of AF isn't that bad, considering how well focus peaking works on Nex.

In reply to:

whoodle: Seriously....WTF?

For $400 you can get (used) or almost get (new) Canon DSLR body that will give you better IQ w/EF lanses than NEX or MFT bodies will (I'm assuming a MFT version isn't too far behind, as I saw someone else is doing that).

Why wouldn't anyone/everyone go that route?

focus peaking and/or video.

NikonScavenger: Every mirrorless camera seems to be a mess of compromises. You give up a big sensor, or a viewfinder, or external controls, a lens library, or a flash hotshoe. What is the point of having a camera system if there are 3-4 lenses for it? Canon is now going to spend time and money developing their mirrorless lenses, but most kit buyers will NEVER take off the 18-55 once they first install it. Once you put a flash on it and a walkaround lens, the mirrorless camera becomes big once again.

Do the majority of the people who buy these things have a huge lens library, do DSLR owners really want a scaled down SLR? I've gone on vacations, planes, trains and have just taken creative measures to cram my D300 into my luggage.

I had a m4/3 camera. It wasn't very portable. The pictures weren't as good as my Nikon, the AF wasn't as advanced, you could put a flash on it, but the flash was twice the size and weight of the camera. You could put it in a pocket, as long as you took the lens and hood off.

Mirrorless only makes sense with pancake primes, imho.

axian: I have been waiting for this for nearly 2 years. And upon seeing the battery capacity I think I'm going to pass on it.

Seriously, Canon. 230 shots? What's the point of having a mirrorless, smaller camera when you also need to attach a battery pack?

Nex CIPA ratings are much higher though, at lower weight.

mike kobal: wake me up when Canon introduces a Nex-7 competitor

To pull that off they're going to need to buy sensors from Sony.

rocklobster: As another poster said it doesn't offer any advantage unless you have a collection of Canon lenses and then probaly the only one is a slight reduction in overall size - ROCK ON M4/3!

*sigh*

Nex sensor will be better, but the large aperture 35mm equiv pancake is nice - that's something the Sony lacks... thusfar.

In reply to:

IcyVeins: Why didn't they do 17mm?? There was way way more need for a good 17mm lens.

23mm E-mount!
F/1.8 as well as an f/4 pancake!

Direct link | Posted on Jun 15, 2012 at 04:52 UTC

Make a 23/1.8 for Nex please!
