Holtphoto: would be nice if you could mount this on an A-mount camera, but currently I can't find an e-Mount to A-Mount adapter

I don't think that's possible..........because the distance to the sensor is greater on the A-mount.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)

Doesn't seem so very expensive for a lens aimed at pros. Sure, most hobbyists (myself included) don't need this and don't have the skills to extract those last few percent of quality this lens makes available, so should better save their money.

deep7: That first paragraph confused me. Reading on, it's not actually a copy but a genuine example. That would be a heck of a price for a mere copy!

I think "copy" is ok for thing like books, records etc that are published or released, but for lenses? You wouldn't talk about a "copy" of a car, for example.

Yeah, the word "example" would have been more appropriate!

Exteban: This is the most sophisticated image processing algorithm I've ever seen. 4D modeling the geometry of the entire scene!

reminds me a bit of old video games

Erick L: They could cut cost by reducing the ridiculous amount of packaging.

How about no packaging at all? THAT would exude confidence: "Our camera is so damn rugged we just ship it to you as is"!

It's a shame one of those monkeys didn't grab his "camera" and run off with it!

Very interesting / cool!

Some people mention it's too chaotic, but that seems to me to be intentional, to throw off the senses, if it was too perfect it might be too slick and "easy". Just my 2c.

In reply to:

adegroot: #6 should have been the first one; it truly stands out from the rest;a really lucky and very peaceful, calm shot; love it; it grabs you right away
#2 with the horse I simply do not find very special
#12 with the island doesn't do anything for me, as the skies should have been more dramatized; it's just a postcard right now
#13 is a washout; that big white triangle top right is redundant empty washed-out space

Overall, a little disappointed in the choices. I was a photo editor for 10 years, and I would have extended the upload time to two weeks; not one, and then would had more choices to make an outstanding gallery. Why stop at 15 images? Posting 24 is a better number.

yeah, number 6 is the best.

Priaptor: Kudos

I love gadgets, what can I say. I rarely spend much time reading about most "new" cameras and browse more than read BUT this thing caught my eye.

Most "new" cameras are pretty much variations of an old theme with different sizes, sensors, etc but this is really NEW

I have no clue how it will ultimately pan out in real world settings and it seems somewhat heavy but I like it.

Too much negativity about this. Maybe it is just a "Polaroid" as someone has suggested but in a way even though the Polaroid ultimately failed it also had a huge impact on the paradigm shift in the advancement of photography.

I believe that in the future, all one will need to do is point the camera in the right direction. It'll fire off 100fps, and in post you'll be able to choose your DOF and the dynamic range will be so ridiculous that there'll also be no need to set the exposure. Perhaps even a 360 lens atop a sort of cap on your head (iCap, Capshot, Capture etc etc) so you won't even need to "take" a picture until you're back in the comfort of your editing chair. Of course all this will be much to the chagrin of "real" photographers, but hey, that's progress for ya!

We're gonna be seeing these pictures as background images on websites EVERYWHERE for about a year, until the novelty wears off. So as the user mouses around, the focus will change.....will be a nice effect for websites.

I like the photoshopping on these images, very expertly done.

Nice! Some of them look like animals frozen in motion!
