does tokina know something we don't? why f4???
is it me or does this lens look just like a re-badged sigma 24-70?
oh look, another new toy from sony. looks just like all of the others released over the past two years. come on guys, is that what we wait with baited breath for????
Nokia: keep making failing phones that no one will buy from you.
BeanyPic: As usual the dinosaurs are complaining about innovation and the development of new equipment which Canon, Nikon and other brands are bringing to the market. The technology and features that the new products have will be available widely in the near future at lower prices. They will be used and tested by Hollywood and others. But of course their are the few who have no idea how to develop new technology but will be 1st in line to moan, knock and slag off the technology that they will be using at different levels, Pro, semi pro or just someone who loves taken photo's and video. For all the complainers out their who would not have the 1st clue how to design and build new imaging and video technology just enjoy what these brands spend millions on developing for us to use and enjoy. Talk about what you want to see or go spend millions trying to design and build your own. Nuf said...
maybe canon doesn't want to invest money into a toy camera system??? i as a photojournalist will not invest money in junk like E.V.I.L cameras.
4k is it folks, our eyes really can't resolve more than that. what's the point of pushing our limits this fast?? we hopefully have many centuries left on this planet of ours...
is it me, or is sony the world's worst about releasing anticipated products that are still more or less incomplete? you taught it's 4k capability above all else and then at the end of the story, you tell the world they have to both wait and pay extra for some external module and firmware that will allow the camera to do everything we think we are getting when we pay for it...
so, sony, how many firmware updates will it take to get this one right???
Well, that makes the decision to jump to Nikon all the easier...
Daniel's entitled to his own opinion, but as a journalist working for a local community paper, I can tell you that contrary to popular belief, print is not dead. People will always want and appreciate a well-written local newspaper covering local events that never make TV or the larger publications/websites. Now, do journalists have to pull double duty these days and be both writer and photographer? Yes. But that is just the modern trend in these days of limited advertising revenue. Personally, I will take one still that tells the story rather than 10 minutes of video shot by a top notch director and $100,000 worth of equipment.
chiane: Could they make them any bigger? Why not just buy a dslr at that size.
some of you people really get me. i mean it's bad enough modern cameras are looking more and more like cheap toys, but now you want them to be even smaller???? I want something substantial in my hands if I am paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for it. you can stay in the cheap seats if you want, but some of us want our money's worth and want to stand out from the rest.
using photoshop is not real photography. improve your technique, don't depend on software to make your images for you.
Ron Zamir: Now all we need is a pro nicro4-3 camera.
the real limitation with m4/3 seems to be the lack of serious zooms. there is no 70-200 2.8, or anything even close. these are for the most part, consumer lens. this tells me that m4/3 can not and may have never been planned with professionals in mind, either now or ever.
vincent- there is a time and place for all types of media. it's not just about the "what's in now" media which is online media. newspapers, magazines and books all have their place along side the online publications (that advertisers don't want to spend much money on). i spend much of my day around technology but insist on reading a printed newspaper for my local news. it's just that simple. print and online media are mutually inclusive and not exclusive.
as far as i am concerned, olympus has been dead in the water for some time now. they basically crapped on their customers with the e5 and their subsequent decision to go m 4/3 instead of 4/3, leaving those who invested money in 4/3 glass out to dry. then they get in to the toy camera craze with the PEN series...what a joke. who could possibly take OLY seriously anymore??? just go away OLY.
pixel_colorado: It's a shame they made it bigger than the A33, A35 and the A55.
Maybe because we that make our living off of shooting all day long in many different situations don't want to walk into our events with a toy-looking camera.
