maxnimo: They should also have a special limited edition version that appears to look so cheap, ragged and worn that absolutely no one would ever consider stealing it.
Just smear feces all over any bag of your choice! Problem solved
Please do proper coma tests. (and aberrations, distortions etc)
*gasp* Lenses worldwide retaliate at these atrocities with uncontrollable geometric distortions, aberrations, diffraction, flaring and vignetting of the darkest kind. No image shall be safe...
This camera would be more appreciated if there wasn't so much bloody light pollution everywhere.
So here's a short message to everyone - If you enjoy the night sky, please speak out to your city officials against light pollution! It's just getting worse and we'll have to travel further and further away to more remote areas to even see any stars in the near future. Help combat light pollution at home by using proper lighting fixtures and/or motion sensors at night and encourage others to do the same.

Wow you guys are sick. You need to be real twisted to enjoy looking at the innards of a mutilated lens, displayed in that manner. I almost puked when I saw that image. Disgusting.
Hold on, I can already do this (ok minus the NFC part) but using WiFi. My ISP router has the ability to connect a USB hard disk of any size to it. Once connected I can copy files to it from any device via WiFi and share them out and also view them from my TV over WiFi. I don't see how this is anyway better. Not to mention it stated to work only with Canon products
"Wireless image transfer is compatible only with Canon cameras and camcorders equipped with NFC and released in 2015"
That is a major drawback.
Or it could already be dead and this is the equivalent of preparing it and making it look good by the mortician before laying it to rest in it's grave. :)
grrrr.... no touchscreen again! Not sure about everyone else but I find touchscreen really useful to quickly point at what I want in focus rather than using buttons to reposition.
ok not bad, now make it hover like the Kino from Stargate Universe and they'll get my money
just use film.....problem solved.
The only people who were underwhelmed and disappointed by this are the gear fanatics who constantly obsess about having the latest and greatest.
EDIT: Actually I found this so everyone can relax now :)
U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell told the Washington Post today that the embattled agency would make changes in the language of rules governing media access, photography and video in federal wilderness areas.
"If you're news media, it has no effect at all," he said. "If you're a private individual, this doesn't apply."
Individuals who want to shoot on wild lands won't need a permit, even if they plan to sell their photographs, except if it involves props, the report said
lacikuss: Its nice to see those sensors compared size by size.
Maybe people will understand that size does matter for image capture. When you see this you soon realize the real IQ potential of your camera and will stop trying to make imaging proveness coming from smaller sensor vs bigger ones as a bases of your argument. And admit that your smaller 1", 4/3; APS-C just cant compete with FF on IQ.
maybe size using current sensor technology FF has an advantage. But things may change if organic cmos sensors are introduced, in which case size will play less of a role.
lacikuss: Well, I guess SONY has been launching new stuff every month...
? sorry responded to the wrong duplicate post which you edited later
we all know everyone who uses this lens will still end up tweaking their photo's to death in Lightroom and Photoshop making whatever benefits this lens offers with respect to colour, clarity, sharpness, contrast etc kind of pointless.
Neodp: "We" are not Window users. "We" are not OS-X users.
Dear manufacturers please check your "facts". We are many.
It's OK though...
If you don't care. "We" don't care.
We are the Borg. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
dash2k8: Several ppl saying their Manfrottos fell apart. Sorry to hear that. I've had several Manfrottos of various sizes over the years and they're all still in great condition.
Not only falling apart - the second last Manfrotto I owned decomposed into it's base elements, the last one transformed into a preying mantis! I'm going to keep buying them though, hoping one of them will transform into a new girlfriend!
57even: Still no 16 bit layer support.
Would reduce their costs if they just used the same code in both programmes.
I think the new version of Elements XXL now has 16 bit support
UncleJJ: THANK YOU SONY! Awesome concept. It was about time somebody came out with this camera. It was what we've all been asking for... watch Nikon and Canon follow (just like they've done with their mirrorless lines). I'm really impressed with Sony's forward thinking following their NEX line (which I guess is now dead) This will be the leading product that will pave the way for a new type of camera. Let's face it: DSLRs are dead. I know all of you old-school photographers are in denial, just like you were about film till digital caught up. This is the face of the future. Well done Sony!
@ABM BarryThat's right get it all out of your system ABM Barry. Let go of all that verbal diarrhea and you'll feel much better!
