Shield3: Methinks Sony has finally killed the A mount altogether. Haven't seen anything in over a year with the A58.
Nooo, for a moment I thought it was the new long waited ..A Mount body from Sony!!!..I'm still waiting to upgrade my A55,but yeah man I'm with you,my hope at this point, is diminishing day by day...
Does anyone know/read if it have the electronic shutter ala Panasonic? to eliminate eventually any SS?
But,wait a sec., so the A3000 Sony is an "E" Mount system cam,same Nex series lenses right? Now what about "A" Mount ?? Can this cam carry the "A" mount?? or not? Or will Sony make another cam specific for "A" mount"..? I'm puzzled..
Dale108: I am worried about the direction that Ricoh is taking Pentax. Adding more colours does not enhance a camera. While I have many Pentax products (K5IIs, K30, K01, Q), the recent decisions have left me scratching my head. K50 and K500 with no new features, Q10 with multiple colours and now the K01 new colour. While Canon, Sony and others are advancing their tech (i.e. 70D), Pentax is releasing more colours? I hope it works out for them as I have lots invested in this system.
I feel for you bro, I used to admire PENTAX products, and don't get me wrong they still make to a certain degree very robust cams, but tech wise, you are right regarding in what direction RICOH/PENTAX CO. is going compare to the competition?? it seem to me simply....NOWHERE. My father want me to take over his collection of vintage PENTAX lenses, I told dad, I'm already in the future I'm a SONY shooter! what am I gonna do with them?
harry cannoli: $2800, viewfinder optional?
I just can't get past that. Blame it on my age. Texting is a solution looking for a problem, a Tweet is the sound a bird makes, and as cameras go, the viewfinder is as integral a component as the shutter.
$2800 and I charge the camera the same way I charge my phone?
Have fun with that.
