ttran88: I'm a current K5iis and A7 shooter and if this FF camera comes with an EVF I will make this my next camera. Almost certain will come with a Sony sensor, same as D750 with Pentax pixie dust. I wonder if the 3 FA limited lenses will go up in value now?
Maybe for FF k01 variant.
Hugo808: Why do we need 40mp again?
new boyz: 16mp to 40mp? The sensor has to shift more than half of its length to get that.
Aha..sub pixel-width shift. Instead of expending exposure area, they crammed more pixel into the existing area. Clever.

naththo: Can Sony add feature to all camera with RAW Lossless non compression?
Well, what do think about Nikon compressed RAW? Better than Sony's? I think so. I'm afraid Sony will only add useless extra bits for an uncompressed raw as I believe the real available data is already somewhat pre compressed. But technical aside, they should offer uncompress raw just to silence the critics.
Infared: I REALLY like the idea of the camera. The sensor, the 5-Axis etc. It's still the lack of dedicated AF lenses that stops me. It is priced really well too.Makes me crazy!!!! LOL!Could the Sony A7 II please mate with my Canon 5DIII and make a Love Child that we all want so bad. LOL.
I don't even have a single lens native to E-mount. Just saying.
gulffish: How can 15 folks have had a camera not yet released?
sknippen: Every brand has it's pro's and con's. What matters is how you deal with the pro's and con's. I bought a sony system a few years ago and i love my camera, other people love their Canon, Nikon, Pentax, fuji, etc...DXO measurments give an indication of the sensor performance, but at the end it is the picture what counts. One can take horrible pictures with a 5000 dollar system and the other can take fantastic pictures with a phone camera...
Great post from a fellow Sony user.
GabrielZ: Nice upgrade, it would of been nice if they had added 4K video capability too.
Patience my friend. You'll get it in 8 months. Hahaha.
DavidsfotosDotCom: Why so much less than the 7D MK II?
Don't get me started... hahaha.
georgec: What's wrong with SD card? Not good enough? Why new format again?
I don't know, but I think there's a technical limitation(architecture or things like that). It's good enough for most consumer, but XQD is not for general consumer.
Thanks for sharing your technique.
This could be my first Samsung, cameratively speaking.
realmadeira: any of you guys find vertical grips useful and what for?
I like BlazerFan's reason.
This is what you get when the ultimate goal is to get the highest possible IQ. Other designs compromise IQ with price/AF/etc.
Sangster: Only US$4490!
I think the most possible reason is AF costs money. It's already expensive as it is. AF version would cost maybe USD 6k. Especially since AF is pretty much a new tech to ZEISS.
brownie314: This isn't a terrible idea. Would rather see it with a micro-USB connection to the phone - meaning more immediate control and faster transfer speeds. Also, would be more interested if the QX1 had PD AF on the sensor.
My hopes as well.
RichRMA: An APS sensor module mounted to a smartphone. Probably the stupidest invention in some time. Sony really does want to commit financial suicide.
No, not limited to a smartphone. Any device that runs Android or iOS. It could be a special made camera that takes QX module as its sensor/mount module. Now that's a breakthrough in truly modular camera.
Pentax has lost its retro persona. New beginning maybe.
