inasir1971: Does it support lossless compressed ARW? This is something sorely missing from Sony models (except the A1)

In the DPR video - Yes! lossless RAW!

inasir1971: The image from their announcement shows it to be around 149mm x 81mm , around same size as their 70-180 f/2.8, but with a 77mm filter thread. Roughly same size as the current 35-150 with an adapter... Hopefully, they can keep the weight down to around 1kg...

It looks like the image with the new 28-75 and the 35-150 had the 35-150 reduced a bit (I went back and measured the mount size of both images). That puts the 35-150 a bit longer than the 70-180 and with an 82mm filter thread.

That is a pretty simple yet ingenious solution to create a slot that can take either UHS-II or CFexpress Type A cards. Why didn't someone think of this earlier? (Nikon???)

My 200/f2 takes much prettier pictures - for a lot less

A high resolution full frame sensor mated to a purpose built 35mm f/2 Zeiss T* lens with a high res viewfinder is a very attractive combination.

It already exists - the Sony RX1rii. I have one and it's brilliant.

The point is most people in the market for this have already bought a Sony RX1rii and few are, IMO, going to ditch their $3500 RX1 for what will likely be a $3500-$4500 Zeiss ZX1. The RX1rii has PDAF, higher fps, (slightly) higher resolution, and I am pretty sure better high ISO performance.

I don't think there are that many people who will attach a $4000 value to being able to edit in Lightroom on a 4.3 inch display (I use a 27" 5K display and I still zoom).

What about compatibility with D810/D800/D4/D4s and other existing 10 pin port cameras and the 5000's radio triggering?

Can they be made to function by means pf a firmware update?

This is too funny - the entry from Neville Jones, 1st Place, Australia National Award is a shot of the same guy taken from almost the exact same spot (near a small village near Yanshuo, China) as me just over a year ago! (check my galley)

Promit: If you think that the Oly 12-35 f/2 should weigh and cost the same as a full frame 24-70 f/4 because the depth of field is the same, you don't even deserve to own a camera.

It's a 14-35 (24-70 equivalent) NOT a 12-35

There's more to cameras than photography - photography is overrated.
Gear is much more fun.

I bought their 24-70 2.8 VC (Nikon mount). The initial unit had issues with the VC (I think it was the first batch of Nikon mount ones) but they quickly replaced it and it's great. Which is more than I can say for my Nikon 24-70 2.8 (new) which is with Nikon service because it is defective and they are "investigating".

My Tamron had a problem and they fixed (replaced it) without me even having to ask or send it in multiple times.

Nikon on the other hand just seem intent on frustrating me to the point of giving up.

I certainly hope that Tamron continue this move away from budget lenses and produce quality product concentrating on features (eg. FF 24-70 2.8 with VC).

You neglect to mention that there has been no improvement in the sensor between the 650D and the 600D, 550D, 60D - they're all the same sensor. Absolutely the same IQ. And the 7D - the same IQ + banding.

Where's the update? Oh, its like the virtual 1DX - it's a virtual update! Announce and then everyone fantasizes and drools over the new features. No bugs, no blocked servers, and every feature we could ever dream of! Brilliant!!!

HopeSpringsEternal: Tamron is robing Sony users of the VC functionality which they have paid for based on the equal selling price of both VC and non-VC variants.

Why on earth would Tamron spend the manufacturing & assembly costs of removing VC optical mechanism when the buyers of the lenses would prefer to have VC in lens especially for video.

It doesn't make any sense.

Sony's have in body stabilization - you can't have stabilization on both the body and the lens

In reply to:

davidodd: Honest question. Why would you need IS on a fast lens with a max reach of 70mm? The extra weight etc is significant for limited utility? How many would want to shoot <1/70 for portraits etc?

You need IS if you want to take shots at low shutter speeds. My Canon EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS (comparable to 24-88 FF) easily allows me to take shots at or below 1/15 second which is what you need with no flash at reasonable ISO's. It is far better than my 24mm 1.4 because of the very shallow DOF at f/1.4.Without IS what you could have shot at ISO 1600-3200 would need ISO 6400-12800 where noise starts to be a factor.

IS is the norm in this focal length range on virtually every crop factor camera - it hasn't made it to full frame because of the increased size for full frame (note that the Tamron is an 82mm lens) and hence weight and complexity.
