I'm sorry but this is as exciting as a new water heater and I'm not talking about the tankless model with endless hot water; that would be unfair to the water heater.

photomedium: Foolish product, it doesn't fit on a selfie stick. Time for camera makers to get on a twelve step program.

Maybe they have a selfie stick bigger than yours. You drive a truck by the way?

(unknown member): As a lens designer once told me "It is far harder to design and build something like an 18-55mm kit lens than it is a no expense spared exotic lens with aspheric and rare glass elements. However most consumers usually assume the opposite."

lets boycott kit lenses and maybe in a year or so we will have otus down to $400 bucks.

marike6: Oh wow, another Sony NEX E-mount body for almost double the price of the A6000, the same atrociously bad kit lens and perhaps the least inspiring lens lineup ever produced.

They have not been called NEX for a few years. This is not a replacement for the A6000, its a higher end model. A6000 will stay on sale. Double the price? Are you comparing used or refurb to new fresh model on the market?

Mssimo: Number of diaphragm blades: 11 ... This may be a first for a 70-200mm.

26 blades, you need to post a picture of that!

Jekabs: I wonder what the price of the 70-200 will be. Ring SSM + dual linear motors, 11-blade diaphragm, OIS, amazing <1m MFD...

My guess is around $2400 max.

I guess we have a few lenses coming also

"24-70mm f/2.8 for $2200
70-200mm f/2.8 ships in may (Price to be determinated)
85mm f/1.4 for $1800 ships in March
Two teleconverters 1.4x, 2x will be available for the 70-200." Credit Sonyalpharumors

Anyone rushing out to upgrade from Mark I model?

Does it still have 11 stops of dynamic range?

2015 the year where the "s" model iphone comes out. I bet next year when the iphone 7 comes out, sales will go way up again then lower the year after.

everything else aside, this may be the best looking digital camera to date.

Mssimo: Will high resolution cameras (think 60-120MP full frame) kill zoom lenses?

@androole Im not sure if you understand where I was going with the topic. Because of the bayer filter, its "impossible" for the lens to archive the full resolution of the sensor. Using those numbers it seems the best lenses can get to around 8-10% of the total sensor resolution.

I guess we dont know what the future holds, are we going to end the megapixel race around 60mp, 75 or 100+? At some point we cant overcome physics. Back to my main point, a zoom lens design with todays technology is already at the limit of resolution. Todays 24-70 may be as good as it gets.

A theretical perfect lens is sharpest wide open. Not only that, the more dense pixels become, the more apperant diffraction becomes. In todays world of 36-51MP cameras, peak sharpness is around f4-f5.6. Next gen sensors will require lenses to have peak performance under f4 and soon after, f2.8 and even f1.4. Now, I'm sure the 160MP sensors of 2019 will make your Superzoom from 1996 look better than ever but it will be like putting a lens baby or CCTV lens on todays best cameras.

Leica is having a hard time with ray angle on CMOS sensors. I bet they tweaked the lenses to make them more digital friendly but they don't want to make older designs look bad.

I understand some people don't like dxo but lets just give them a pass for this example... On DXO site, the best zoom on the 5Ds R is the Sigma 24-35mm f2 with "sharpness of 32MP" and the worse is the sigma 12-24 with "Sharpness of 8MP". Best Prime on same camera is 300mm 2.8L II with "45MP" and Tamron AF180 on the low end with score of "10MP"

As far as resolution, what lenses will meet the demand for 100MP? Best primes can squeeze (45MP) from the 51MP but zooms seem to be capped at "32MP" at the moment.

Will primes slowly start the road to outsell zooms?

It may not be sharper than the original and more expensive but you are getting more lens for you money, its much bigger now.

Mssimo: On the studio comparison, base ISO 320 is heavily blurred. (shutter shock?) ISO 400 looks much better.

I read the entire article and I did see the disclaimer. Im surprised the images are posted without further research. Did you contact manufacture about issue? Was more than one copy of the body tested? Did you google the issue? What is near 1/125 of a sec? 1/90? 1/40? So when you ask me to "read the article", what I found is a lack of information, but i guess this is not a full review.
