Donnie G: Big and heavy Sigma 35mm F/1.4 DG HSM or light and compact Canon 35mm F/2 IS USM? Nice try Sigma, but I'll go with the Canon lens. Thanks anyway.

Considering this is half the price of the Sony 35mm F1.4 G, I think I will have a look at it.

DotCom Editor: Does it cure cancer? Does it end war? Or famine? No? Hmm, it ain't one of 50 best inventions of 2012. It's -- wait for it, wait for it -- it's a camera.

Thanks for pointing out that it's a camera I would have never known

You might want to look up the word innovation and what it means.
Lets see ...Innovation is the development of new customers value through solutions that meet new needs, inarticulate needs, or old customer and market needs in new ways.
So yes this is Innovation and not world peace / cure for cancer.

Sony should make the list.
Yes they are pushing the industry all the time and it's only good for consumers because it forces all camera makers to step up to the plate, I would say if it was not for Sony pushing the industry we would not have all these incredible cameras like the Nikon D800 or Canon 5D MKIII and a99 at prices that's affordable to the masses.

Shamael: I would like to see that chip in RX100. 14 mpix is more what I look for than 20 mpix. 20 is too much in pixel count for me. Beside NEX-7, the RX100 brings me no improvement in picture size and file sizes. I am happy to see the NEX-6 with a honest pixel count that is more one needs to shot a good picture. If Nikon makes this one in a P&S body, it could challenge the RX100 without any doubt.

Hahahaha

Ooo Pat... HowabutRAW is a confused Samsung fan, he likes to point out how much Sony sucks, just ignore him, everyone does, next he will be telling you how Samsung makes the best lenses in the world and that the Samsung Galaxy Camera is the best.

davids8560: Night has fallen again. It's been 16 hours since I upgraded my NEX-7's firmware. I'm holed up in a cheap motel near the border. The door is barricaded. The shades are drawn. All the lights are off. The room is illuminated only by the fluckering of the tv set. I've been chain smoking and drinking all day. On the table before me is a fifth of gin, my Glock, my NEX-7, and a laptop. The phone rang for awhile a little earlier. I didn't pick it up. I was afraid it was somebody from the press - or worse. I haven't been able to sleep at all. Can't really say why. The upgrade went smoothly. But something still doesn't feel right. People want to know what I think. To me, at face value, it seems kind of incidental. Somebody said NEX-7 owners are rejoicing today. But I don't know about that. I just don't know.

Hahaha Love it

meanwhile: My A35 feels unloved by Sony.

Try the a900 it was unloved by Sony the day it was made, only one firmware update for it ever put out by Sony.

Eric Hensel: The 5n has the same video button issue, and the bracketing improvement would be nice as well

Samsung makes serious cameras OMG...LOLOLOLOL Galaxy camera and a few NX cameras, Yes dream on my friend, No full frame camera to talk about or descent Raw conversion, seriously what are you smoking.
Not to mention that the NEX cameras outsell Samsung NX in about every country including Korea

In reply to:

jerome_munich: "The A99 becomes the first pro-level SLT camera. Are pros ready to give up an optical viewfinder?

PM: We're being disruptive. Part of the appeal of being disruptive is that pros see that we're being innovative and want to explore what Sony has to offer."

Being disruptive is a good thing. Being disruptive without the safety net of offering the customers what they know and love is a risky bet on the future. Keeping a line of more traditional cameras in parallel with a more "modern" line of SLT cameras would be a prudent choice and would insure support from faithful users.

I agree with you and that is why my a900 will be my last Sony and the Nikon D800 and D600 is beckoning, there is one thing about being so disrupting to the point of Alienating your loyal customers a.k.a the Minolta users from the past, I cannot see any part of Minolta left in any new Sony camera, the might as well drop the A-mount and adopt the E-mount for all their cameras, that would be the final nail in Minolta's coffin

nicolaiecostel: The samples are quite good, apart from the landscape ones, off-course. The high ISO shots are quite nice as well, this camera keeps good dynamic range, detail, color, even at ISO3200, and I suspect that above as well.

D700 user here/enjoy what you allready own.

You are about the only person on here that make sense and is not smoking grass when reading reviews, I applaud you.

Paulo Ferreira: Who took these samples? Awful, poor light, focusing, framing auto ISO? auto everything? That landscape taken from above with the 16-35 is shameful! You could not have found worse subjects, colours, settings... or maybe I'm wrong and you will still surprise me. Literally shown in a "bad light"

All cameras are just point and shoot cameras in the hand of an amateur.

pca7070: Very poor corners!

Wide lenses usually have weak corners at it's widest angle and that goes for any lens from any brand

You are all smoking grass, I can't see how any other camera could have done this better with the same lens and same lighting conditions.

stan_pustylnik: 1 from 2
1- tester, testing procedures were faulty - camera is great
2- tester, testing procedures were fine - camera is bad

Test photos from A99 are not impressive. Color is bleach, contrast is low, detail is smeary at Actual Size, landscape photos - simply shame from CZ 16-35mm f/2.8 , 70-200mm f/2.8, and CZ 70-400mm.

These tests show lower IQ than images I get with Sony A850 + 20 years old Minolta Maxxum lenses.

I have to agree with you moimoi but I think Sony will be releasing a camera in the future that will suit your and my needs and this one is a video orientated persons cup of tea.
For now the a900 is all I need for in studio work.
The a57 I play with now and then is more of a playful thing, I don't take the SLT cameras too serious.
