Without full line of lenses and accessories, a camera is useless. SLT line is not even complete and now this?
Sony has a lot of engineering talents, but very bad sense of business. When new product comes out so soon and so often, they are trashing yesterday's loyal customer.
SLT, NEX, RX, and A7... How much $$$ to stay with Sony?
snow14: After trying the the tamron lens and canon I was. Amazed how much canon's lens better ,focus much faster and sharpness at f 2.8 the tamy has no chance so if you have the money buy canon for sure but if you are on budget save more and buy canon's 24-70 also it is simply the best lens in this focal range and anything else is compromise .
Is 3-4 stops VR(VC,IS,OS) part of the compromise?
Benarm: What about contrast and colors? These things are quite subjective, but I tend to notice that many off-brand lens like Tamron and Sigma cannot match their Canon or Nikon equivalents.
This one is VERY different. Try it to see for yourself.
