What makes me respect deeply Mr. Adams work is not only his eye for spotting interesting pictures, his skills to deal with the light with limited resources available at his time, but mostly, his capability to develop the negative. This is what he did best.

rsf3127: All I can see is a camera that is painted gray instead of being made of real titanium.
Besides that, the IQ is not stellar and worse than more affordable and versatile cameras.

No buy.

Take a look at the comparison tool here in DPReview. Sharpening artifacts noticeable in contrasty interfaces and lots of moiré in RAW. Not nice.
@JT26: I have seen a couple and found a reason not to buy an otherwise nicely made camera.

mosc: I feel like 20 is too wide and 24 is not quite wide enough. I find myself wishing there was a true 90 degree (22mm) out there to get as wide as possible while still projecting down 2D cleanly. I suppose 20mm plus a small crop is there but it kind of surprises me nobody shoots directly at it with a prime. Or do you all think 20mm is close enough and perhaps I want to cut off the absolute corners anyway?

buy the 20mm and use Clear Image Zoom

I have been using the Sigma primes on my NEX for some years now. These affordable and very good lenses helped me to take some of my most cherished pictures.
Certainly one of the best investments in photographic equipment ever.

The one from Kai is technically better. It is also my favorite.

I feel a lot better now that I have seen this.

This could be applied to colonoscopic devices...

If there are scarce lens options, people whine.
If the af module in a low priced, otherwise fine lens, is outdated, people whine.
If the lens is heavy because of the premium glass and metals used, people whine.
If the lens is featherweight and has plastic parts, people whine.
If the lens is big, people whine.
If the lens is diminutive, peoplet whine.
If the lens is top notch in all respects and its price does justice to that, guess what? Yes, people whine.

///M: I was expecting something spectacular when they announced a 50 /1.4 for $1500. This is just meh... specular highlights in the OOF area are cat eyes, with bad offset fringes, and little character, too analytical. Why didn't Sony shoot for f/1.2 or even f/1.0, if Leica can make a 50 /0.95 that is spectacular for their mirrorless system, why can't Sony? In the history of fast 50s, this is not even in the top 10.

I firmly believe that DPReview staff should print and frame a comment like the one above, and put it in their wall of shame.

Waiting for the next episode, with more details about acquisition technique and post production.

We need this kind of article here more often.

Almost the same price of a Pentax K-1.

Seems a tiny bit overpriced to me.

Nice gallery. Lots of very useful pics.

Glad to see that the magenta reflections of early stl models are completely gone.

Very good shadow noise for an APSc camera with such a high MP count.

No post asking for a pancake 0.95f prime lens or a 10-300mm 1.8f zoom so far. Weird...

would be an interesting match for the GM1.

"2016 is an Olympic year, and it's not a coincidence that this year has seen new flagship DSLRs from from both Canon and Nikon"
So it seems that a bunch of Pro level cameras are about to hit the black market in Rio. You'd better be under a good insurance contract.

2eyesee: So does anyone know why Sony doesn't put a touchscreen on any of their other cameras?

It is because they do not want you to whine that you changed settings with your greasy nose when trying to reach for the VF.
