DPReview, How about a review of the major E-mount adapters? Tell us how well they work with A-Mount lenses, Canon lenses, Sigma Canon mount lenses, and Sigma mount lenses (not just the subset targeted by the MC-11). Let us know how they work with the A7RII and A6300, and which of the AF modes on those cameras work with which adapters. I expect there are quite a few of us that would find such a test very useful.
Benna78: Well, ok, I know it would need a new lens design, but why can't Sigma offer native E mount lenses?
When I told a Sigma rep that I will buy their 150-600 when they offer it in Sony FE mount. He said Sigma has gotten lots of requests to produce native E mount lenses. Apparently, they decided to produce this adapter, rather than native E-mount lenses. Too bad!
It better be cheap, since it is underpowered compared to a Surface Pro 4. You can get a Surface Pro 4 with a Core I7 processor, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD for $1599 - pricey, to be sure, but with plenty of power.
I think the colors look pretty natural; you must be used to super-saturated colors.
The G1X looks like it could be an interesting second camera, but the lack of an electronic viewfinder is a big negative for me. We have an S70 that we really like, except that the optical viewfinder doesn't accurately show the boundaries of the picture, and the LCD is hard to see in bright light. Thus, it is difficult to compose the shot the way you would like. With a good EVF, the G1X could be a compelling camera.
The NEX-5N looked very good compared to just about everything at every ISO. Put that sensor in a NEX-7 body and Sony won't be able to make enough of them.
The NEX-7 looks like a awesome camera with a very high price. I hope Sony migrates the compact body with viewfinder form factor down to the NEX-5 range. With a 16MP sensor and an $800 price, THAT would be a compelling camera.
pixel_colorado: It's a shame they made it bigger than the A33, A35 and the A55.
Yup. There is now quite a gap between the A35 (definitely entry level) and the A65. I hope Sony fills it with an upgraded version of the A55.
I was hoping the A65 would be closer in size and weight to the A55. You could get an A55 with18-250 lens weighing in about 2 lb. I want a great camera without excess bulk and weight. That was a big attraction of the SLT cameras. As I get older, I would rather carry less weight - especially backpacking. Now I am leaning toward the NEX-7.
