Jun2: Yeah, Samsung offers f/2-2.8 lens slight more expensive than Sony f/4 lens. I am thinking about switch. Samsung should sell NX1 around $1000 though.
The NX1 outperforms the NEX-7 (which retailed above 1000USD back then, and still outperforms the EM1 (which retails at 1200USD) and the GH4 (which retails around 1400USD). And you're here asking for a 1000USD price tag??? C'mon. Don't be so cheap.
mugupo: Wait till Sony A7000 which just around the corner, it will likely put this camera to shame. with EVF and better video function.
I believe, Sony can do 4K internal recording just fine but they don't want to. The issue is, if they start offering 4K internal in a 1000USD camera model, how can they justify the prices for more expensive 4K-capable cameras without limiting too much lower-spec cameras?
@mugupoYou're so funny. A7000 in any case should compete against the NX1, not this one camera.
In any case, better for Sony to come up with 4K video internal recording, or Sony will put themselves (and you) to shame.
Rooru S: quick question no.1is it an APS-C only lens or has the ability to cover a fullframe circle?quick question no.2how was the AF speed?
good answer @Peiasdf. Thanks
the same could be said about Pentax, but they already have Fullframe lenses available and I'm not talking about their film era lenses.

if they really use Sony sensors in the future FF DSLR, that would be the closest thing to a Sony DSLR-A900 successor that never came true...
Wish Sigma made the 120-300mm F2.8 Sport available for Sony A-mount...
Why Sony doesn't implement the AF/MF switch operation on every lens just like the Macro 90mm lens? And why the Zeiss 35/1.4 has an aperture ring but the Zeiss 55/1.8 and 35/2.8 don't?
You either get a distance scale, or aperture ring, or MF ring mechanical coupling but not all of them... BTW, focus-by-wire is horrible. Hope they made the Zeiss 35/1.4 with mechanical coupling.
has anyone used Nissin products? I'm interested on having radio control and at the moment I was thinking about using my HVL-F58AM/F43AM flashunits with Phottix Odin TTL...
I don't shoot m4/3 but those are some good looking lenses. At first I was like...whaAAT? green? But after looking several times at it, I think I like it.
Rooru S: Partial refund??
In the note it says they're going to perform partial refunds... but I'm quite surprised they're doing partial refunds instead of total refund.
Really enjoy taking pictures with the a7S. It's just like a mini Nikon D4S but with less weight/size, worse AF performance and way less fps in AF-C mode at a cheaper price point to compensate for all of that. I still see the D4S and 1DX as the best photography tools but the a7S is the best daily use camera when best overall performance isn't required.
Rooru S: The AF issues are only with lenses that has to move heavy elements or is it something independent from that?
maybe more powerful AF motors is the answer? It could mean it drains batteries faster, but for the sake of AF speed, I'm quite sure that's a price some are willing to pay.

Rooru S: So, the guy is Swedish, lived in England...so...why don't they offer some swedish museum a joint effort to keep the album in good shape and take turns to exhibit it or make it available for researchers and students?
hmmm you're right...if Sweden really wanted to have such album, they would have pledged for it
bluevellet: Just don't send the album to Mosul Iraq
Seeing ISIS going through that museum smashing 3000 year old artifacts with sledgehammers... Just awful.
More awful is what they're planning to do with the world. But yeah, I get your feelings about the matter.

Tapper123: Smallest size is 77mm? How about smaller sizes for mirrorless camera lenses too?
For the minimum filter size (and the price), it's obvious they're aiming for users of big and expensive lenses from Nikon and Canon.
