JapanAntoine: Quite impressive specs, indeed! And very appealing.
Now, before I jump and sell my house to buy this beast, I'd like to check what Fuji has up their sleeve for the X-Pro2 (due this fall)...

I was always pretty annoyed by Sony's unique habit of releasing different models in Japan and overseas, meaning I can't have both JP and EN menus on the camera and unfortunately they seem to continue doing this (not that it would be a complete deal breaker though).

And I must admit I love the controls on the Fuji: this idea of having aperture and shutter speed in direct access through dedicated dials and rings is just a blessing.
And the Fujinon glass, mama mia, versus Zeiss... tough choice!!!

I'll have to rent both for a week and figure out on the field.

Same old X-trans sensor has been used on X-Pro1, XE1,XE2,XT1,XT10. It has been recycled so many times that the color has fade away.

DVT80111: Sorry for my ignorant. How does it work at slow speed? Do I have to wait for the camera to finish 4 pictures? What if the object is moving? So will I get a noiseless picture, but blurry image?

Samsung has started producing stacked memory using TSV. It is coming. They may pull it in to stay ahead of the competition. Sony may do same. For small sensor farms like Cannon, this technology will break their business be sure TSV equipment are not cheap.

Bigger sensor = need more light = larger hole.

If you ask for a FF, then don't complain of big ars lenses. Otherwise, stay with APSC.

Hope they will make one for Fujifilm. They have the same lens wiggling problem.

On Sony a6000 Review preview (833 comments in total)
In reply to:

Yarnim: Somewhat late to the party I guess, but guys, a question from a relative newbie.

Just ordered A6000 so waiting for it in the mail, but would it make sense at all to get this and the B&H Zeiss 12&32 lens combo?

One of the strongest aspects of the A6000 is its amazing focus speed, but apparently, neither of those lenses even offer PDAF and their focus mechanism kinda sux with a huge, unpleasant focusing motor noise and slow focusing.

I do get that their optics are pretty good, but not much ahead compared to Sony's SEL1018 for the 12mm zeiss, and the 32mm not very much compared to sigma 30mm.

Any thoughts, advises? TIA!

Does lens have anything to do with PDAF?

In reply to:

Zeisschen: It's quite sad to see that many readers here have obviously no idea of what quality Zeiss lenses are in the past and today. I don't know how Zeiss got the reputation for so people to sell (summarized) "fugly overprized German crap", when pretty much the opposite is the truth. These comments can only come from people who never used ANY Zeiss product.
I for myself chose the Sony Alpha System ONLY for the ability to use Zeiss autofocus lenses! I'm aware that non of their lenses are "cheap", but for the performance I get I'm always satisfied and I never felt I had been tricked by them and paid too much. All of their lenses are designed to be used wide open and to deliver outstanding contrast and color, not seen in any other lenses you can buy for money today. Every single lens they make has that state of the art performance that we are always asking for, unbelievable how people ignore can ignore that by just looking at a product picture and some numbers.

Zeiss T* 180/2.8 was a horrible lens too. I had to return.
