FF Sony Nex Lenses

I have to admit, the leaked/rumoured 35/2.8 confuses me. Assuming some (a lot of?) redundancy btw RX1 owners and FF Nex owners - at least at first - seems like they should go the Fuji X route and avoid the 35 FL for the first year. I would have thought 24/2.8 (or even 3.5), 50/1.8, and 85 or 100 1.8 plus a zoom (28-75/4) would get the job done. Why compete with your own product?

Re: FF Sony Nex Lenses

yes we should go the cropped sensor route when full frame is what we want....

You are mixing cropped sensor with FF. The NEX lens you speak of, 35/2.8, would have APSc equivalence of 24/1.8 for FoV and DoF, and based on rumors as the kit lens.

Not competing

From David K: It’s possible that the RX1-N (not necessarily its name) lenses will fit other E-mount bodies, but existing E-mount lenses won’t fit the new mini-Leica-style body.

We know existing E-mount lenses won't work on the new FF NEX cameras.  There is a very small chance the FF lenses won't work on current NEX bodies due to the extra contacts needed (modified E-mount with additional contacts to enable the silent leaf-shutter and iris action)We need to wait and see.

I think it is best to wait and see for sure. Rumors and "it is possible" talk is not information
I can trust Time will tell.

mmmm, where do you get your facts from? Current lenses wont work?

I cant say I know for sure, but lets see the vg-900, the current only nex FF. You can use any current nex e-mount lens on it. On crop mode.

And lets see what happens on the a-mount line. You have cropped sensor bodies, and FF bodies. You also have aps-c lenses and FF lenses. You can mix as much as you like them. Of course with the obvious consequences of going to crop mode with FF cameras using non FF lenses.

On an aps-c a-mount camera you can mount any FF lens with no problem.

The same happens on Nikon and on canon.

So again, just curious. WE KNOW EXISTING E-MOUNT LENSES WONT WORK ON THE NEW FF NEX CAMERAS. Who is WE??????? Where do you get your facts from? I'm not saying mine are facts. They are informed suppositions, with a logic on them. Cant see yours.

I can put my FF EF Canon lenses on my APS-C Canon T4i.  But I couldn't put my APS-C EFS lens (17-55/2.8) on my FF Canon 5D2 (when I had one). Compatibility might go one way, but not both ways. We just have to wait and see.

The NEX-VG900 (FF E-mount) and the A99 for that matter work fine with crop lenses in crop mode - so will the FF NEX camera. Probability of that not being the case is minor.

Either are people (DT200) not updated enough on the best FF NEX evidence (provided by SAR) out there, or else they are ignoring them on purpose of fanboy reasons hoping Sony will fail so that they won't feel bad about their current system. Personally I hope manufacturers (anyone) do what is best for the consumer, and that is to make a kick ass product to satisfy our needs.

And while we are speculating, it is possible RX1-N is a completely different camera body being developed by Cybershot division with ILC as opposed to a FF E-mount system from Alpha division that develops NEX and SLT bodies.

First of all, you should have added the link when you are commenting on someone.

Second, who is he? First time I hear about him.

Third, I really don't believe much what says there. You took it as fact, but I doubt it. I doubt many things. First that this would be the NEX FF. If it is the NEX FF SAR has already posted a lot of information, and what this guy says is wrong. Very wrong. Everything points to a very compatible camera (not only with nex lenses, but alpha also). Everything points to a 15% bigger nex-7 body. Not what this article says.

Now, if this is a new camera, again, why have another FF rangefinder like camera to compete with itself? Also, another set of lenses? The idea of a lens with leaf shutter is tempting, it will be expensive, and no one does it for FF (with interchangeable lenses) for a reason. It also adds a lot of size to the lens and mount.

Finally, if you read it, you will see that nothing is said as a fact. IT seems like....., but it could be the opposite. He says things like that all the time. Dont get me wrong, SARs does the same thing, but at least SARs has a track record of a lot of correct rumors, and of recognizing when things were wrong, or changed. This guy, I have no idea who he is. He could be the next SAR, but I have no idea.

So again, is your FACT, a rumor from a not very known site? I have no problem with discussing rumors, I do it all the time, but lets call them what they are and not confuse more people please.

He's kind of the Thom Hogan of A mount; a long time Minolta/Sony users/watcher who has been in the publishing business for decades.  He was posting things about Minolta history that nobody else knew back in the usenet days.

However, while he knows more about A mount than anyone I can think of, his occasional speculations haven't proved very accurate.

A compact E-mount FF camera is coming in October. Yes, that’s correct....

The only thing interesting in D. Kilpatrick's article is that he got his tip/rumor from someone else than SAR's sources, which means we have an independent source confirming the FF NEX rumor. The part where Kilpatrick adds his own speculation is the part where you start face palming and wonder if he ever reads SAR, a guy with his apparent influence should do his research a little better than starting implausible rumors via his speculations about a new mount, almost, and leaf shutters(!)

It is my understanding he is reliable and he presents it as if there was "hands-on" experience here.  Now maybe this was a beta test that won't see the light of day.   We will know for sure in October.

I really doubt what David said, unless it is another camera (highly doubt it). Everything points to compatibility. And again, I dont mean to attack or have conflict with anybody, just calling things by its real name.

These rumors are nothing more than someone overhearing a conversation about someone else who was using an RX1(?) with interchangeable lenses, and passes that info to David Kilpatrick, so who knows what the camera(?) was. SAR doesn't believe it was an RX1.

Welcome back.

DT200 is JustHavingFun/Everdog. He is behaving more decently this time around (past two weeks), but let there be no doubt. Same guy.

He gave it away by calling DP a Sony fan site (same thing he did with everydog account a couple of years ago -- yes I remember such things). Also, gleefully making it bold (and badly wishing DK rumor is true) that Nex lenses won't work on FF camera

Typical Everdog/Just Having Fun twist to all his posts

Re: FF Sony Nex Lenses

I obviously didn't make myself clear. My point is a 35/2.8 on a FF conpact camera - whatever its name - competes with the RX1 and it's 35/2. What Fuji did smartly was after releasing a X100 with a 23 (35 equiv) lens, they didn't release a 23 for the new interchangeable X Pro system until later, starting with non-competing focal lengths first 3 primes were 28, 50, and 90 equiv). Therefore fans of the sensor could rationalize getting all three primes along with their X100. My point was the first lenses for the coming Sony FF camera should not compete with their one compact FF camera in existence.
