neatnclean: Can't wait to see how Roger Cicala @ lensrentals.com tears those G-Masta lenses apart ... and finds out they're internally held together by a drop of goooey glue. Just like the Sony FE 24-70/4 ZA OSS ... "Zeiss" label notwithstanding!

jomsjoms: Why no OSS on the 24-70/f2.8? (Guess it will make it bigger but but but......)

Maybe, because A7II/RII/SII have 5axis-IBIS?

babart: Well, I'm certainly an aficionado of fine glass, but I can't imagine anyone rushing out to buy a $2000 24-70 or 84/1.4 lens. Good grief, does Sony truly believe their customers are all members of the 1%?

24-70 is $200 cheaper than Nikkor and a bit more expensive than Canon

Don Sata: The Sony is a great camera with great innovatife features but it lacks a proper system of flashes, lenses and accessories that come along with a camera of this price range. No proper AF f2.8 zooms for example.

I hope that their was a problem while shooting otherwise result is just hilarious. And still Sony washed colours far from reality..

5Ds samples are made with 85mm prime, RX1R has 35mm lens

Mike FL: SONY does know how to make a $300 body sale for $600.

a3000 was under $300 with kit zoom, and a3000 was not released in US too initially.

I would prefer camera with plastic mount over camera without screw-drive(Nikon 3xxx/5xxx) or with outdated sensor(as similarly priced 700D(750/760 are more expensive))

neod: Does this mean that you can use the cheaper LA-EA3 adapter (which doesn't have it's own mirror like the LA-EA4) and have phase detect AF?

There arу many of them. Metabones, and so on...

Why do I have to buy it? I have A850, A77-2 and A99.
I don't have statistics about how many cameras of each brand was sold, but I see low-end Sony cameras often than Nikon ones, for example.

A3000 is mirrorless without SLT and AF module, IS, tilt screen, top-plate LCD, with worse LCD and EVF... What's the point in comparing them?

Tonkotsu Ramen: If this is what they mean by "continue A mount development", then they should just let A mount die. This isn't development, it's stagnation, feature reduction, and cost cutting.

The best AF in class, great sensor(I have A77-II which has the same AF and sensor), top plate LCD, XAVC S, full-time live View, and this camera is cheaper than 750D. Isn't Canon a stagnation? Are Canon or Nikon developing any amazing low-end APS-C? What were You expecting from $600 camera?

Poweruser: "Faster AF with adapted lenses"...? I dont get it. The LAEA4 Adapter comes with its own AF system. And other lenses than A-mount will not AF on the a7. So what is the article talking about? Better performance with the LAEA3 adapter? If thats the case, why not write exactly that?

http://www.newsshooter.com/2015/06/19/worlds-first-nikon-to-sony-e-mount-adaptor-with-fill-auto-focus-capabilities/. I thought it had already been released.

Yes, it does. Same as A7R2

There are plenty AF adapters for Canon and Nikon. This firmware update will allow to use not only contrast zones, but PDAF

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1492 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark Alan Thomas: The threatened Leica haters squatting in this thread might (not) be interested in the size comparison photos posted to leicarumors.com. This camera is smaller than most DSLRs, and is priced about the same as the pro DSLR models it was designed to compete with: the Nikon D4 and the Canon 1Dx (and is actually a lot smaller than them).

http://leicarumors.com/2015/10/20/the-leica-sl-typ-601-camera-review-leica-gambles-big.aspx/

Another big cameras like D4 have a lot of dedicated buttons for almost every settings. How many buttons does SL have?

photominion: Now I know why Sony rolls out a new camera every few weeks!

They try to set a world record as the company that was never NOT on the DPR front page.

Really curious to see when or if they will supply their faithful A-mount followers with a new camera.
