Hmmm... Reading the original post I am under the impression that this is a kind of digital graduated ND, and that its objective is to set different exposure in different area of the *same* shot.
If this is really changing the photosites amplifier row by row, could be even better than a physical graduated ND for dynamic range ...

Nuno Souto: Ever heard about log scales for graphs like this? :)
Yeah, I know: you guys wanted to make a vivid point!
No worries!

I agree, but you must admit that linear plots have a knack,... https://xkcd.com/1732/

Rmano: I am considering this camera as an update to my A55. Does anyone tried it with the LAx adapter and A-mount lenses? I have quite a bit of them and the A77 is too big for me....

Thanks a lot Steen Hansen and zackledawg --- this info is really useful and basically nowhere to be seen. I have a Sigma 10-15 and a 18-250; this last one is not so good but well --- handy. The other lens I have and love is an old Vivitar 105AF/macro, that I understand will work only with the LA-EA4, but given that I use it basically in MF it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks --- the only problem I have seen with LA-EA3 (the 1 is discontinued) it is that seems that the AF speed is very low; but all the reviews are about using older models (without on-sensor PDAF). Are you aware of any test-review of the thing? Thanks again!

footeab: Nothing new. There will always be juvenile male vandals. There is nothing you can do to stop it either other than start teaching them as parents when they are much younger. It is a failure of parenting from the age of 1 till they are teenagers and the reigns start coming off.

Well, Casey Nocket is not exactly male... ;-)

Triplet Perar: Wake me up when some company delivers a set of lenses all at f/4: 24/4, 35/4, 50/4, 75/4, 105/4, all bijou and petite, optically brilliant, distortion free, excellent 3D rendering, and razor sharp. That will be the day when digital photography may celebrate real accomplishment and we clap that someone started using brains and delivered fully on digital promise.

There are very nice zooms covering that range (equivalent) for micro3/4. I never used them but for example the Oly 12-40 seems very good optically and covers your first four FLs.

Every time I see this stunning corner of the world I think this spot is the best landscape ever. Well shot, well transmitted. Longing to go back.

edgy12: No lossless raw for a7, or a6000?

Sony FW support for "old" model has been really bad since, well, forever. I have a A55 which was forgotten 1 month after the release of the new models. It's the only reason that make me think about jumping to Oly or Fuji....

ProfHankD: I don't really see the appeal of such strong ND filters -- for the technical reason that they are very likely to reveal minor light leaks, etc. I have other methods for simulating long exposures in bright light, namely my TDCI (time domain continuous imaging) research and simple stacking of shorter exposures, both of which can produce higher-quality results than use of an ND filter.

Also, using a 4k (all-I) video and averaging out frames can be an useful technique. See also Pat David's post: http://blog.patdavid.net/2013/09/faking-nd-filter-for-long-exposure.html

jaxson: Lack of sensor stabilisation is the main drawback for me.

Why is no one mentioning this?

4 stops by leaning.... ? Sound at least difficult. It's a pity; having had A7 IBIS there would have been the same as 4 more stops of clean ISO with all my A-lenses. Will stay with my A55 for the time being. A pity Sony is no Olympus nor Fuji in their politics of updating firmware on old models....

Yep. I was just waiting IBIS.... Heck. Will wait two more years... Or jump ship...

Rmano: Very nice images, thank you. Although this time is the first time in your articles here on dpreview that I like the image much more with another crop... I really love the look of the top square crop, without the rocks in the foreground that are (in my very humble opinion) adding little.
Great shots anyway, and thanks for sharing!

Yes, the reflections are gorgeous. I find that the rocks in the foreground detract from them... Thanks for answering, I really appreciate it!

On article Sony adds XAVC S and high bitrate video to a6000 (186 comments in total)
In reply to:

Old Cameras: This is a very attractive and interesting camera but the available lenses are limiting. There doesn't seem to be a suitable wide range zoom available at reasonable cost. 16-50 is a little limiting and if you go wider it gets pretty expensive. I have a D7100 with the 18-140, which is excellent. I'm not knocking the Sony but when you get away from the 16-50 the offerings get very pricey. I got a refurbished copy of the 18-140 for a good price.

If they made a mirrorless A-mount adapter (should be possible with on-chip PDAF) then you'll have plenty of choices.... I'd like to see it with my Sigma 10-20...
