On Sony shows off upcoming full-frame lenses at Photokina article (335 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marcelobtp: The A7 was a marketing strategy to say we have the smallest FF, no one will do it smaller then ours. But the small and light will not balance well with fast af lenses for a FF sensor. Oh god, theres a gap between a7 and a77 size. if sony don't do it quickly someone will. Please small lenses sony this system is faded to fail in its purpose.

From everything he's said, Marcelobtp has never held an a7 body and might be stoned. They are substantial. I own the sony a850, the nex7, and the a7s. No comparison between any of them. The a850 is heavy and holds well in the hand with the 70-400g attached. The nex7 is light and holds very precariously with the same. The a7s is a little heavier than the nex7 and still holds very nicely with the 70-400 attached via adapter.

This whole "doesn't balance well" thing is bs. When I see a DSLR shooter one-handing a lens that can't be one-handed on the a7 series I'll change my tune.

Has no one heard of the word "leverage"?! Removing weight at the fulcrum does NOT make a lens heavier. For chrissakes this is 9th grade physics!

AlexK-12: That 24-240 is exactly what I was waiting for for my a7! I know you'll think me strange to say, but that may just be whats going to keep me with full frame e-mount. Right now all I'm using are MF primes and having a walkaround zoom with AF would be a nice thing to have. Just need to wait until February :(

Same here. From nex7. Have had FF 24mp and 12mp makes 24 look like technical wizardry is required :)

jimrpdx: It continues to stun me that FF 36×24 and E-mount are in the same sentence, while the A-mount is shunned like a sick dog. That's impressive, as I thought Sony could no longer stun me with anything...

Cry me a river. You've got plenty of lenses at your disposal. The FF emount needs lenses, it's brand new. Arguing that focusing for a bit on a new line of lenses that will keep Sony alive and well and able to support the A mount (which I also use) is nothing but reasonless cynicism. Maybe if you were complaining about the loss of screwdrive lenses I'd give your post half a bit of credit.

It's what I want for the "rides in the car" lens for my a7s as well. I'm certainly not judging you here. Forgiving sensor in every way and massive zoom range? Yes, please.

In reply to:

TN Args: If they don't mention the approx size and weight, nobody knows if they are something new and different that allows smaller, lighter old-frame ownership. OR.....NOT!

Leave it to just another canon shooter to state the absolutely obvious: A large sensor with a decent-aperture telephoto takes glass. Well done.

The only thing left is to state the entirely too repeated bs phrase "THIS SYSTEM MAKES NO SENSE! SMALLER MAKES NO SENSE!"

Zeisschen: Thank you Sony for letting us A7 users know what to expect! Keep on coming those FE lenses!

I can't think of a worse choice.

On Sony unveils FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS cinema lens article (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: That is a nice lens. If I was shooting full frame video that would be what I would chose. However, I can’t help but think that an M4/3 version of this lens could be F2.8 all the way through for the same size if not smaller.

They certainly could, but it would require f2 for comparable depth of field wouldn't it?

Would be fine much of the time, but let's not muddy the release of a fine apple of a lens to a hypothetical orange.

If that made for a negative aspect anywhere someone would likely care.

In reply to:

Biowizard: oh YUCK. While the city-scape bike rides looked smooth enough, the mountain climbing/hiking sequences seemed totally artificial. The way entire blocks of landscape morphed, or appeared suddenly in piecemeal fashion, reminded of all that is wrong with Microsoft Flight Simulator, when whole weather systems appear or vanish in a twinkling, completely destroying the immersive experience.

In short, there is still only one way to create decent time-lapse, and that involves tracks, servos, tripods and more, in a carefully planned fashion. Please keep this pseudo-realism away from me.

Those with humility do so anonymously on the internet. Those without go into politics.
