asnowboards1: Shutter sound - dear DPREVIEW Staff... please mention the shutter sound on the RP in the final review. I tested it a little in Japan and while a like many things (especially for the price point), the shutter sounds like a cheap plastic toy. I know that technically this doesn't make a difference, but I am a firm believer that you should enjoy using your camera (I use mostly Fuji because of that), and it is something that should be mentioned. Most people won't care and that is just fine.
Except for that I really like the size and Canon going away from the stupid touchbar on the R. Now Canon just needs to release some less expensive R-Mount glass and I am sure it will be a successful camera.

@NowHearThis - yeah, sound is of course a subjective subject like music ;) Since I use the X-H1 mostly, pretty much every camera sounds pretty loud. The X-H1 is really absurdly quiet. Thanks for the objective input :)

@ojos azules - I am also interested in that. Rumorwise the A7s III might finally manage a full frame with global electronic shutter... we'll just have too see. Although I would say that for the grand of the market, we are at least 5 years away. The other question is though, does everyone really want that? Unless I am in an environment that requires a silent shutter, I never turn it on. For me the shutter sound is part of the experience of using a proper camera and I would not want that to be replaced by a little speaker sound. It is kind of like exaggerating a cars exhaust sound through the speakers like a bunch of hot hatches do. They can still be awesome cars, but it just feels wrong :P

The Canon CN-E14.5-60mm T2.6 L S is about the equivalent to the Fuji. Especially important for Cine Lenses is that they stay in focus as you zoom. Here is the review from TheCameraStoreTV.

They also explain some stuff about Cine Lenses

cjones63: How exciting! Next week we'll see pics of the lawns being cut.

Well, if you don't share enthusiasm for these photos... don't click on this article or bother writing comments here.

DPReview has gained a reputation of dealing with all sides of photography and major damage to one of the factories producing a major part does count as news and not "sewer pit of trash stories".

Just like with the New York Times... you don't need to read the whole newspaper, just the stuff that interests you. I happen to find the footage fascinating.

Is very interesting and I wonder what Metabones did differently. Just 2 weeks ago I got the MC-11 and it works very well with the Canon 17-40 L f/4 on my a7ii. Not as good as the native ones in low contrast AF fields, but close enough. That said, on my old a7 it can't even be called Autofokus. Just hunts like mad.

If you're thinking about an adapter check out the Vid "Sigma MC-11 super test! 24 Canon fit lenses tested" on YouTube.

iudex: Respect where it´s due. Both lenses are very useful and a welcome adition to (still relatively poor) E-mount lineup. Especially the cheap fifty is nice and I guess it will end in many users´ backpack. The telezoom is not that great, especially the speed does not rapture me at all, combined with relatively high price (I know it´s a G lens, but Pentax´s premium DA* 60-250mm f4 costs 900 USD and the variable aperture 55-300/4-5,8 costs some 270 USD). But I guess it will fall down in couple of months and it´s a nice companion to pro-grade fast telezoom.
Anyhow I feel that Sony forgot somehow about E mount (APSC) lenses. I showed blatantly upon introduction of a6300, when journalists had to shoot with FE lenses since there was actually only one decent E-mount lens (16-70 f4). I think Sony APSC mirrorless deserve some decent, relatively fast, but moderately priced zooms like the 17-50/2,8 or 17-70/2,8-4.

By now I think the FE line-up is actually covered well when it comes to the lenses regardless of price. While Canikon have a lot more options, most of them are two- or threefold. What really is/was missing, was lenses under 1000$, but on the other hand, nobody buys a 5D mark 2 to put the nifty fifty on...

What I do completely agree on is the lack of newly developed APS-C lenses. That said, I don't think they "forgot". I am sure their lens development is running at absolute maximum, for understandable reasons the FE lenses have priority though. The E-mount certainly deserves a dedicated ~17-50/2.8, but besides that, most points are covered. The 20 and 50 are great (the 16 sucks). At the press event I believe they wanted to show off their new gear. Using the "old" 50 just wouldn't have been as catchy.

EXX: Good, an affordable 50mm lens. This will make the A7 line more attractive to people who want full frame, but not have lots of money. An A7 or A7II combined with this lens is way below the price point of full frame not so long ago.

As a next step I would say: take the Minolta 70-210 F4 "beercan" and make a modernized E-mount version of it.

I hope this 50mm F1.8 is the first one in a series of cheaper primes, like a 28mm, 35mm, 85m and 135mm version. Sony made these cheap lenses for A-mount (SAL35F18, SAL50F18, SAL85F28) : they preform great and are really great value for money.

I completely agree with this being great news! I also am eagerly awaiting the less expensive ones, but between the 28 and now the 50, only an ~85 is missing.

Regarding the cheaper lenses for A-mount however... the 35 and 50 were both APS-C lenses. Only the 85 was Full-Format. On the A99, the cheap options were the legacy Minoltas.
