witzgall: I am curious if the lack of AF in video is a technical or marketing limitation.

It is probably only a noise issue. If they said it worked with video, there would soon be complaints about the motor being to noisy.

RedFox88: This means sony is putting more emphasis on its sensors and less in cameras. Signaling their move out of cameras since Canon and nikon are directly now competing again their products. sony is off to the next new device!

But if they keep support for memory stick they get beaten for trying to lock customer in to a proprietary technology...

AshleyMC: Don't get excited, kids. You think it's always about you? Hah, they are moving away from armchair gearheads and putting their strengths into industrial imaging applications. And not just Sony.

True,
The need for the automotive industry far exceeds a few cameras sold here and here.

"No, it’s because sony has always been out for the next thing rather than get into long term products. That is what they are!"

For every example you can give on this , I can give an example from C&N.

I would argue that Sony commits for the long term on what the jump into.

As an example of the long term commitment from Sony:
"Sony's last Betamax recorder was produced in 2002, but the company will continue to produce tapes until March 2016. "

Same goes for Memory stick.

Vit Adamek: Brand new full frame from canon with 4k (hopefully not cropped and dual pixel af working), with near native EF lenses compatibility and AF speed? for $1300? Now we are starting to be talking about reasonable value here for someone who already has few EF lenses.

Weight including batteries - 485g - that is Sony A7 MK1 territory + fully articulated screen? Starting to be really interested.

I would expect its AF performance with adapter EF lenses to be better than a competitor camera released in 2013,
now possible to find at ebay for $400 and change.

Almost ugly.
First C&N jumps as high as they can, and almost reaches Sony.
Sonys response:
Ok, I'll have to jump with both feets ...

AlanG: This guy and every other business owner should be paying the photographers for promoting this area for them. That they convinced people that it is hip to be photographed there is a lucky break for those businesses.

But that is a choice for him, right?

accupix: Fox 4 news was not respecting the properties by filming (probably on video tape) their news story onsite, only adding to the problem by calling attention to the attraction.

I'm sure they didn't ask for permission our book a meeting with the resident before arriving ...

viewmasterphotos: As a wedding photographer the last 25 years with Nikon F90X,Canon Eos 1N,D,MKII.MKIII,6D and Fuji Xpro1,Sony A9 I have to say that there is a problem with AF at mirrorless cameras.
First of all there is not good compatibility with their flash.Sometimes work sometimes not.
With Canon SLR there is no such problem (but there are others like over-under exposure).
It's very difficult to trust for example a mirrorless camera to go for shooting in a Baptism at orthodox church.Your mirrorless camera it won't focus baby while the priest is placing it at water baptistery fool of oil. Yes you can shoot something like video placing your camera at high speed shooting but you don't need 300 photos.You only need 20-30 good and accurate focused ones.
The same AF errors with the lens "hanging" and struggling to focus at the celebration ceremonies like the above photo at the article.
Auto focus is not comparable with the SLR cameras.Even the cheap ones.

Please read.
(S)He never says that it can't focus. He says that it locks on to other people
(maybe those who's eyes can be seen) when the baby's face disappears behind hands and water.

Sounds more like a problem in identifying the subject than an inability to focus. Nonetheless it may ruin pictures.
Perhaps it can be solved by some adjustable AF parameters, but then again, maybe not.

jacketpotato: This is what happens when you work for a corporation main focus making money.

You loose integrity to appease chasing the dollar.

And yet, some have started to use MILC's for wedding photography.

G G: Neither Nikon nor Canon really needed a FF mirrorless camera. They needed was to improve their live view mode and perhaps add an EVF option. They have been drawn into this quagmire by Sony. How this will end up remains to be seen.

I think they were drawn in by the customers.

dachshund7: What is really odd in guessing what Nikon is thinking, is that the main obstacle is the price. I imagine people would like this camera a lot more if it cost under $1500. Both the Z7 and Canon R really missed the mark on price, given that they don't compete with other FF cameras on features. APS-C mirrorless has the benefit of smaller size and low pricetag. FF mirrorless aren't any smaller and the new lenses are all beefy and expensive. So what do you gain with the mirrorless equivalent of the FF DSLR? An EVF? New lens mount? If they don't have all of the features of the DSLR then price should be brought down accordingly.

@tinetz, short flange distance can always be handled with by just moving the elements in the lens further out.
Short flange distance open new possibilities while still allowing old designs to be used, albeit in a new lens-casing.

Fishchris: I'm still trying to figure out the benefits of "ANY" mirrorless camera over a mirrored one ?
Mirrorless cameras are a huge plus "for the manufacturers"... easier / cheaper to produce, and so a higher profit margin. But for the photographer, nearly worthless.

Depending on brand, the short flange distance together with EVF-zoom and zebras brought new life to old MF lenses.

kobakokh: good job Sony, but please do real good lenses (not something like 16-80/4 - expensive and bad!) and not in dragon prices... And, did you heard - new MEDIUM FORMAT camera by Fujifilm cost 4500 USD!!!

ZeBebito: 12 more e-lenses but they forgot the little detail of mention which 12 lenses?

@ThougthRUs,
No, not native. Anyone using these 300 lenses today uses them with PDAF.
Most of those 300 lenses weren't designed for CDAF.
And quite a few have never been used with CDAF.

So, yes, they can be mounted, and yes they will 'work'.
But native? Nope.
