I have to admit, their noise/chroma algorithms in JPEG are pretty darn impressive. In RAW there doesn't seem to be too much difference between other APS-C/MFT sensors at high ISO but in JPEG...amazing.

The first video sample is 1080i60 not 1080p60, FYI.

my only beef with this adapter is the price. Not that its too expensive, but that its only $450 when a stupid rod support system from red rock is more. Shows you how much markup there is on their supports and follow focus' to charge less for something that had to be engineered verses just drawn up and CNC'ed (yes i know they engineer their supports too)

In reply to:

jl_smith: News flash people - ISO isn't the END ALL BE-ALL of camera performance. Kinda funny people bash Canon for being tunnel-visioned for megapixels, yet everyone here swears up and down by ISO performance and nothing else.

I own both Nikon and Sony systems (not interested in A77 though) and I will say I'd give up a bit more noise performance for Sony's color response any day over Nikon - the pictures just look "better". Also, do yourself a favor and compare JPEG output (I know, I know, JPEG is the devil) vs the other cameras - the Sony JPEG output kicks the crap out of D7000 and 7D.

I agree with you on ISO performance, but it certainly makes a difference for people who needs every low light advantage they can get, and the A77 falls flat here big time, even against the 4/3rds GH2.

The main reason I wound't buy it, however, is the same reason you might. I never have liked the "color" that sony adds to the image in their JPEG processing, its too....fake. It feels very artificial and over saturated, and as awesome as their noise algorithm is, i don't like the end result.

Fotogeneticist: I've just been waiting for a small body to stick on the end of my Nikkor glass to use for video in a package that can fit in a book bag. I've already got a D-SLR for everything else.

did they say that the F-adapter will allow for AF?

These look really nice, average, but nice. For $500 with a kit lens this would be a good deal.

Im not sure i understand the benefit to coming out with a smaller (15.9 mm diag.) proprietary sensor system instead of adopting a standard like MFT or even DX. I guess they were worried about it stealing sales from their larger offerings? This could have been a great addition to the MFT family, why Nikon, WHY?

nice lens, though I don't like the artificial look of Sony, I have to admit they are poised to do well with their NEX line.

pjsalty: I'm impressed! When I bought my GH2 I had a feeling that m4/3 was going to be a great system...now I am sure that it will. This has put the competition miles behind.

As an amateur moving to GH2, the feature I missed most about my superzoom was the power zoom for video. I know that serious videographers rarely zoom at all, but most of us do, and zooming by ring never seems to go smoothly for me.

I'll definitely be keeping my 20 mm/1.7 for low light.

I see this lens being a big hit with the AF100. Power zoom really is nice to have in a lot of video applications.

Typical Sony look; rich and saturated but lacking authenticity.
