Foroa: Well, I am using the 18-105 G f4 lens (27-157 eq) on my Sony A6000, and I feel that, at 430 gram, it is a nice compromise.
Not even comparable to a constant bright telephoto lens, mate.
Good to see Fujifilm and Samsung take the lead. I hope Sony follows suit soon and doesn't leave their APS-C system lagging behind the competition.
Seeky: If you look very carefully to the working prototype, you can see that it is a NEX 5 (N/R/T) camera with black 50mm f1.8 lens. Quite funny.
Hahahah, wow. You are correct! It is indeed a Sony camera duct taped on to an iphone. What is going on here??
Why even bother? Just get the Sony QX1. That's a much more polished product. Also this thing will be outdated as soon as Apple released the next proprietary connector system and changes the physical body of the iphone... which is like every year.
"The Sony Alpha QX1 is easily spotted because it doesn't look like anything else you've ever seen. Here it's partnered with a sensible zoom lens, clamped to the back of a Sony mobile device."
That's the 35/2.8 prime, not a zoom lens.
Would rather get the Fujifilm x100
Joao Cardoso: I had a NEX 5 for some years and I recently got a a6000. I'm now start to think if I have done the right choice. E-Mount has some lens choices, much more than when I got the NEX5 where we had 3 options.
The problem is that the price tag is always huge. Sure this is Zeiss. But can't Sony make some cheap lens? Micro 4/3 has a lot os lens under the $300 that are not that bad and with some interesting focal. And if we are willing to go up a bit to $500 then we have many choices. With the E-Mount system everything seems to be over-priced.
For the price of a 10-18 I can get a sigma 10-20 and the lens adaptor and still save some money.
Pro tip: The Sony branded 28-70 FE and future 28/2 FE and 24-240 FE will be affordable without the Zeiss price tag
Very nice, but the price is crazy. Might as well get the Samsung NX Mini and a top of the line smartphone of your choice.
List of the other Sony FF E-mount lenses:

mpgxsvcd: This is probably the single biggest announcement day in photography history.
In all of photography history? Seriously?
Homam: However good the specs may sound, it's years behind Canon and Nikon in ergonomics and hence never used by pros or semi pros...
Not sure what you're on about, as it looks like they've copied off Canon and Nikon's ergonomics....
DrLogic: No stabilization for Sony? The extra reach is useless without stabilization... And this is a very large range kit lens - the single IQ compromise range somebody takes on a holiday to replace a whole a whole bunch of lenses, so they aren't likely to be using a tripod. Doesn't make sense.
Leaving it out because Sony cameras don't need it because they have IBIS is a cop out. Lens IS vs Body IS is going to be significantly different at 300mm. Also if they're going to cut out the IS, at least price is appropriately at the cheaper price instead of charging as much as the Canikon counterparts which actually get the feature.
HMeYe: $2499 for an f4 mid range zoom !?!?!?! this is crazy ... better stick to my Leica M9 system !
No major significant changes. Fuji is seriously milking the x100 camera hard with this 3rd revision.
The electronic shutter is very very nice.
Is this the first ever APS-C sized sensor interchangeable camera with an electronic shutter?
Only 30p? Ricoh really didn't do their research...
GodSpeaks: No mention of how this is powered. From looking at the WD website, it would appear to be USB powered (no battery). So not so portable then.
However, portable (battery powered) card readers/storage units have been around for ages. So what is so special about this? Just the WiFi? Certainly not the portability.
Meh. Would rather give my money to another load on Kiva.
nathanleebush: Love the clickless aperture feature as someone who uses my A7s for both stills and videos equally. Shame.. just bought the existing Zeiss branded 35mm f/2.8. Just wish these had OIS, as jello is the achilles heel of the camera's video mode, and it pretty much requires IS lenses.
@Mescalamba shaky video footage is a compromise in image quality
