photogeek: Whoever is the first to make a rectilinear action cam will own the market.

@ProfHankD The TG860 is not an actioncam, genius.

Non articulating fixed screen? What's the point? You would think they would make it able to flip around for selfie shooters. There is no reason to get this over a GoPro.

Battery life is 4 hours with live 1080p streaming? That's very impressive.

Now they just need to make a compact 35mm f/2 AF FE lens and it will sell like hotcakes.

Mikael Risedal: it is nice that Canon has waked up from the sensor slumber and now has a sensor who are better but still are behind Sony regarding DR, and where are 4K video?

^ well that escalated quickly

Why no 4k? Even the cheap entry level Panasonic G7 is capable of 4k recording. How embarrassing.

Windows has had this feature for ever.

Why does it look so cheap for $250? I first thought it was some $30 budget model.

nextcube: Doesn't that figure...just bought a G7 last week!

This isnt a replacement of the G7. If you were set on a dslr style body, why would you be after a rangefinder style?

Arizona Sunset: So, an interchangeable LX100 with improved IBIS.

Color me tempted.

The Lx100 lens isnt a pancake. It extends into the body. You cant have an interchangeable version and expect it to be a pancake. It doesnt work like that.

MrTaikitso: As a GX8 owner, the fact they left out a flippy forward screen (ideal for composing video), mic input, exp comp dial and a flip up EVF indicates that other than the slightly improved stabilization and shutter, GX8 is still the top end.

Insecure much? This is not designed to replace the GX? line.

The light one is slightly better to read, but I much prefer the original black one. It's what makes dpreview unique.

captura: I'd like to see a comparison done with this lens to the older Sony OSS 50/1.8 APS-S lens performed on an A6000 or A6300.

Interestingly this lens comes in at about the same price as the Sigma DN 30/1.4. I'd rather get the Sigma.

I didn't know the Sigma 30/1.4 was an FE lens.

Lassoni: I guess it's ok.. sort of like nikon f1.4 or f1.8, but I think tamron is better (not sure tho if they provide it for FE). Sigma on the other hand too heavy imo

What are you on about? Nikon doesn't make any FF mirrorless lenses. Sigma also doesn't make a FF mirrorless 50mm lens and neither does Sigma.

Link | Posted on Apr 2, 2016 at 16:31 UTC

At the price point I expected a little more.

About time. Sony needs some serious competition to force them to make some cheaper entry level FF bodies and more budget FE lenses. Theyve been getting away with milking the premium concept for too long now (eg “Zeiss” 24-70/4).

In reply to:

Banhmi: If one already has IBIS (e.g. A7ii), isn't the 70-300mm's OSS a pointless expense?

Lens IS is generally more effective than body IBIS. But Sony combines both systems together anymore to be more effective than just lens IS alone.

In reply to:

guatitamasluz: I was about to make a move to sony for low light and looked into the possibility of purchasing an a7sII but their price tags along with a limited lens line up to choose from made me cringe and stop. The adapter discussions couldn't help either to convince me, as some lenses just don't work...in the end I bought a Canon 6D instead and a Samyang 14 F/2.8, after insurance fully covered my 5D3 loss along with the 16-35 F/2.8 USM II and don't regret it. Next lens could be an Irix 11 F/4.0 once it's officially announced and shipping.

Cool story bro. what did you eat for breakfast?

On article Hands on: Sony FE 50mm F1.8 and 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 (137 comments in total)

Does the 50/1.8 have a rubber mf ring like the FE 28-70 or a smooth plastic/metal ring like the FE 28/2?

In reply to:

Arizona Sunset: If the 50mm f1.8 has dead silent focus, take my money.

All emount lenses have silent focus, even the cheap apsc ones like the 16/2.8 pancake. thats definitely one of the big advantage of emount.
