Perfect for micro 4/3 cameras.

Retro1976: Look, I'm not knocking Sony, but I have been to countless workshops and tourist destinations on travel and have yet to see one single Sony A series camera in the wild. I see Nikon, Canon, occasionally Olympus and Fuji, but that's about it. Who is buying these bodies ??? And what are so many names jumping on board ? What am I missing ???

You are missing selection bias

Because of the steroids that cost thousands dollars, no it doesn't look like Sony A7

DoubleDash: Taking into account that these pictures were shot with the A7RII, i'm not really impressed by the sharpness and bokeh.

Taking into account that this lens is just $250, i still believe it's a pretty decent deal.

But, I don't see any reason why, if you have the RII, you would buy this lens over the 55mm 1.8.

Perhaps a budget full frame camera is on its way.

AkashRana: Good new additions to Sony E-mount range though primarily focused at full-frame as i see it. It will look out of place on A6xxx series of cameras with tiny grips and setup will be way unbalanced. Sony must bring in a DSLR styled APS-C bodies and bigger full frame bodies so lenses and cameras fell better balanced and have space for a real battery besides improving ergonomics; as the whole non-sense of size and weight savings is out of the window with recently released E-mount lenses which are indeed heavier and bigger than their A-mount or Canikon counterparts.

DSLR styled APS-C bodies : Sony a3000. Dirty cheap too...

Mister Joseph: I have a Tamron 70-300 4-5.6 VC for my Nikon FF. Had it for $280.
My NEX APS-C is the one that needs good lenses. So far I have a Sigma 19 f2.8.

Hopefully the new 30mm f1.4 will not disappoint

Old Cameras: 50/1.8 = good, $249 = great!
70-300/4.5-5.6 = good, $1199 = are you out of your minds?

70-300 seems a G lens, Sony (old Minolta)'s premium line. Better be good!

tassosDA: I don't know why we have here so much negativity, about a camera that is absolutely fantastic! A camera with features that, 10 years ago. we could have only dreamed off!! What's wrong, boys?? Did we get too much spoiled over time and now we demand breakthrough technology from every new camera every six months?? If the minor (!!??!!) upgrades of the D500 don't suit you, then don't upgrade!! If you belive that dslr's are dead than go get yourself a mirror less!! If you think that a cell phone can take better pictures than a CSC than, by all means, stick to your cell phone!! But please stop been a cry baby!! P.S: I'm not a Nikon shooter!!

I am sure D500 is fantastic, but it is more expensive than Pentax full frame camera, which is also fantastic if not better. Not to mention other choices. Nikon DX lens choices are quite poor, while there are pro bodies, no pro lenses really. The problem is Nikon are losing their customers.

Nikon created DL just to stay away from coolpix, their last coolpix high end camera A didn't sell well.

tom1234567: Well in my opinion the K1 ilooks like a GREAT camera and look forward to the reviews I have had to K3 cameras in past 18mths I had problems with one with the mirror flapping etc etc ,But I still say they are a workhorse of a camera.

I now have a Nikon D7200 another great camera I will sell it in a couple of months and get the D500 I prefere APS-C to full frame
A camera is only a tool to take photos/video etc etc

I wish Pentax every success with ther brilliant new K1 just not for me now
The D500 will be another great camera when it comes out

Why all the bias against Pentax also what a great price for a FF camera
The D500 is more expensive .
Again well done Pentax

'I see a lot of bias from different directions'

'Why all the bias against Pentax '

99% of this bias comes from one member here, who should at least have the decency to stop all the nonsense.

HBowman: If I were Pentax/Ricoh marketing manager I would dance actually, like a successful rocket launch. Even if ppl start to fight now in the comments, it's been a long time I seen such love and kind words for a brand.

This is a very good sign.

Can't wait to see ppl starting to use it with legendary lenses.

Jorge, I was being sarcastic you know. No hard feelings I hope. :)

success in terms of the reception of the current Pentax users. This camera is not a direct threat to any big players. Rather it targets a niche market, which is very inferior to meet your needs obviously.
