Is this article about Ken Rockwell???
I had GAS for a while but fortunately being a student at that time I did not have enough money to let it get out of hand. I had to resort to lurking on e-Bay and other 2nd hand sites. Often I made good deals and occasionally sold them with profit.One point I realized that I had so many lenses that were never used and got rid of them. Nowadays I only have one camera, one walk-around-lens, one tele-zoom and one macro.
MrTaikitso: Dumb question, but which camera offers the best IQ, the NEX series (say the mid range 5R, that I own) or the RX100/(I&II)? I understand the NEX has a larger sensor, so am assuming the only benefit of an RX100 is the genuine pocket ability?
I always say: the best camera is the one that you have with you. Being pocket-able means that people will carry it more often with them so it will take excellent pictures which you would/could not with a NEX.
I am waiting for RX110 with a 24-120mm lens.
I was really hoping that Sony will produce this camera with a improved lens. Something equivalent to a 24-120mm with f1.8-3.2. No need for more MP.

In school in the Netherlands we are taught British English rather than American, Australian English, etc. Of course with out funny accents.
Mmm probably Tokina is using their usual built-like-a-tank material for the 70-200mm F4 since it not much lighter than some of the 70-200mm f2.8 out there.
I've stopped associating the brand Kodak with quality long time ago. The owners just try to suck the last dollars out of its blood.
Frenske: Still waiting on a semi-large sensor compact with a semi-fast lens that starts at 24mm and possible goes up to 120mm. One can dream, can we?
But hold on the RX100 has a bigger sensor and of course you will need a bigger lens to provide a the larger disk. However let's say a 24-120mm f2-f3.5 is not that far off the current lens, 28-112mm f2-f2.8.Having something like a 24mm is very important for me, as a regular landscape, cityscape, architecture travel-photographer (hobbyist).

CZFox: So, if a Canadian citizen take a picture of let's say CN Tower and publish it publicly on web or sell few copies, the citizen can be sued by Canadian photographer who first shot CN Tower. Am I right?
Perhaps when the photographer owns the building too. If not well then I wonder you have been smoking.
No denying in it. The RX100 is an amazing camera, but I won't buy it as long the lens does not improve. Please make it a little bit wider e.g. 24mm and faster at the tele end and I'll buy it as my 2nd camera.
D200_4me: I like the 1" sensor idea, but I guess he's never heard of m4/3? ''Up until recently you've had two types of cameras - DSLRs, if you want the best image quality, or compact cameras if you need something smaller but there's nothing in between."
Which m4/3 can you actually put in a pocket? A mirror-less cameras cannot really be classified as compact cameras. I guess Mr Barna is grouping these cameras under SLRs category.I waiting for a RX101 which has a 24-105mm lens which does not slow down quickly in aperture.
I never understand why people including reviewers comment that it is something short of miracle that a full frame sensor can exist in a body so small. Perhaps they keep forgetting that 35mm film was the standard "sensor" for decades in simple compact point and shoot cameras. Especially if you think about how much space the film roll and the winder took.I think there is a gigantic market for RX1. Maybe Sony can be bring out a compact RX10 with an APS-C sensor with fast zoom-lens.
TAGRIFFIN: Hi. Perhaps this is an ignorant question...but why would I buy this lens if I have the Sony 18-250? Just wonderin'....Tim
Well because the world does not turn around you. Some people have just a 18-55mm or some people have a 55-200mm but need more zoom. Some people want a cheap knock-about zoom lens to go with their 70-x00mm G.Who knows ... if it is not for you then don't buy it.
Frenske: Depth of field: 0.0004m at 0.47m and f/2.8. LOL ... even at f/16 it is just 3mm. I am not sure the world really needs lenses like this.
I am guessing you have more money than sense if you consider to pair this lens with a teleconverter.

Interesting little camera. I hope they will improve the lens range since you can't change lens. 28mm is a bit too tele for me when going on holidays and I shoot a lot of architecture and landscape. A 24-120mm would be great if it doesn't affect the IQ.
photogalleryonline: Minolta made a great 400mm f4.5 for about $6k, i picked one up for $2.8K from a japan dealer new once Konica bought Minolta out and they were stuck with stock. It is a fantastically sharp len with simply amazing colour rendition. I do hope Sony redo this lens with SSM, but I am now terrified that once they slap a Sony badge on it they'll want $10K for it.
The price of this 500 f4 is simply crazy! Oh and made to order, what planet do they live on?? ....From a very dissatisfied A77 customer.
There is quiet a difference between a 400mm f4.5 and a 500mm f4. About a kilo of glass more. But I do hope the Sony will be more on the level of the Nikon (£6000) than on Canons level (£8500).
I missing OOF (out of focus) areas. No bokeh, just like a compact camera.
