Anyone having a problem setting ISO manually after this most recent update? For example, if I set it to ISO 100 it jumps to ISO 320, etc. This happens in all of the shooting modes. It also ignores Auto High ISO now. Just wondering if I'm overlooking something, or if this is a problem with the update.

Yet another extended middle finger from the status symbol company that doesn't really need your business.

I was just whining about this on a different thread. It seems Sony has heard my prayers and responded. I'd prefer an f/1.4, but the 35mm f/1.8 means that my Sigma 30mm f/2.8 goes up for sale, along with that odious Sony 30mm f/3.5 macro. And at $450, if the 35mm f/1.8 is a decent piece of glass, it's likely to cut deep into the sale of the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 (which is perpetually out-of-stock anyway). Okay, maybe not "deep," but unless you absolutely need a 24 on this kind of camera, why pay more than twice the price. Good work, Sony. Now, let's see if you can actually deliver it in November, as stated, and not make us wait until 2014, which wouldn't be a huge surprise if past history is any indicator.

I wish Sony would start delivering on some additional emount lenses for the cameras that are already available, as opposed to releasing several versions of the same camera every few months. I'll buy a fast prime or two, but I'm not throwing down for yet another NEX.

fmuell: I took a photo in tele with the optical viewfinder and what I saw in the optical viewfinder was not the same crop (?) that was on the photo on the lcd-screen...
So taking Photos in tele with the optical viewfinder does not make sense, or does it?

And if you use the optional (and unnecessary) lens hood you'll see even less than that in the viewfinder since it blocks about a quarter of the view!

Geez...I was kinda hoping someone would put a full frame sensor in one of these little mirrorless cameras, combined with a set of compact pancake style lenses. I'm a Nikon guy, but I use the Sony NEX-5 as my carry anywhere camera, and that's probably how it will stay for now.
