One thing is for sure - whoever the new president's photographer is, he better gets himself a strong orange filter quickly.

What is the Leica effect? Expensive camera so the picture must be good?

vscd: Mirrorbox, but EVF. Worst of both worlds ;) But fun aside, this cam was astounding fast and light @photokina 2016. Autofocus seems to be a very capable point on this SLT.

Fast PDAF plus EVF -> best of both worlds.

crashpc: It looks like skinny bony abandoned dog. Technology shrinks stuff, but the mirror is still there. Not a compliment, not a complaint. It´s what it is now. uninteresting times coming?

Only if you stay with traditional vendors. Otherwise times are pretty interesting.

maciek sz: Apart from Panasonic, what the hell is happening in the camera market? Each iteration of cameras (Sony, Fuji, Oly, Pana etc.) is getting more and more pricy. Sad times... ;)

The low-end market is eliminated by smartphone cameras and apps.

Can it also print the 1080p video it records and how much paper does that need?

I am not sure if we'd even call that a "nice to have" feature.

Petrogel, you did not do your research carefully. To Quote: " The list appears to be a collection of passwords exposed in previous hacks -- likely on users' own computers, not Google's systems."

probert500: ... or you could up your iso to 200 or 400, get a cheaper lens and spend the savings on hookers and coke.

AshMills: you are correct but the higher background blur is what is usually the desired effect, not the actual shallow DOF. I should have phrased that more carefully.

85/1.4 has shallower DOF than this.

Ebrahim Saadawi: At the price I wonder how many preorders will they get? 16?

Even high-end video people are not interested (due to the mount choice) and due to the presence of an already just as good version for 1/4 the price.

This is just weird.

You can almost get a Canon 50mm f/1 AF for that price point on ebay (the dream lens). Or get an f/1.2. Just weird.

Great lens. The price is just incredibly stupid.

You don't need super fast for shallow DOF. Longer focal length will be just as fine, e.g. 85/1.4.

In reply to:

faterikcartman: What are the speeds with higher resolutions? Have to admit this could be a fun gadget.

You can do the math yourself. Take the throughput of 1.4 gigapixels per second and divide by the number of pixels in the chosen resolution. E.g. 4557 fps at 640x480.

FLruckas: So in 8 months we get the rest of the missing features for yet another $400.....
Maybe Sony should wait before they innovate....
They're burning their fan base along the way.
Introducing products before they're really fully designed......

Who forced you to buy the a6300 if you weren't happy with the feature set?
