well better hope you get good copies of the two fixed aperture lenses as no option to stop them down

I guess they could double for telescopes otherwise in manual focus mode

fixed aperture f11 lenses? what was canon smoking on new product decision day

Melgigg: Very disappointed that apparently “S” doesn’t stand for sensitivity any more, I’ve been waiting years for the upgrade and all they’re talking about is video rubbish that’s in all the other cameras anyway.

Thats because the S line of alpha cameras as always been oriented more to video why would you be surprised when its latest S alpha's video features are put front stage

give me a 1.4TC that works with the 70-180 and ill be happy

im guessing the new lens will be 24-180/200 F:2.8-4 its got quite the diameter so maybe even one starting at 20mm to say 120mm have to wait and see

I just hope tamron does start marketing their stuff like nikon
hey we are making something that we will be releasing "soon" but we're not going to tell you what or when hey tamron good lens sell themselves no need for the games

Im all for people having internet access anywhere in the world but for gods sakes why does it take 6000 satellites to accomplish that task
astroscape photography will no longer be enjoyable when you will have to spend hours post processing streaks out of the images

Aaron@Utah: finally a reason to sell another one of my last Canon hold out lenses 24mm 1.4 II I will wait for the reviews but looks like a great lens to take its place a bit wider so I can live with the bit slower speed especially if its good in the corners for astro stuff which is my main reason for having a lens like this

IamjF yes I am aware of the GM 24 but personally I would rather have a bit more wide of the 20mm plus I can sell the canon 24mm for about what I can get the new sony 20mm for the 24mm sony im sure is a great lens but for my type of shooting the 20mm would fit me better and also $400 less expensive in USD just have to wait untill the lene is in people hands so we can get the realworld reviewsof the lens and not just the paid sony sponsored shooters reviews I am hoping it gets the same reviews of the 24mm but that is a GM lense so It better live up to the reviews for the price

Checat: I'm glad that I sold 24 Sony-Zeiss f1.8 two months ago xd, now it will be really hard to sell.

George Zip: With this release and what Sony has achieved so quickly , you fear for the future of Nikon. Especially in the wake of the D6 announcement.

well its not looking good for nikon the only thing I have noticed from nikon is almost desperation announcements
Nikons Announcement =
we're going to build a new camera and its going to be great
Nikon releases camera and is a "meh" this is what we waited for?

Canon's Announcement = we're building a new camera and heres the specs
Canon releases camera and it lives up to the hype of the announcement

Sony's Announcement = here's the camera let us know what you think and we'll improve it in the next firmware

Sony shooter here and this camera looks very impressive, will it lure me back no not really as I would probably go with the A7RIV for my style of shooting but
Just because I shoot Sony I still want the other manufacturers pushing the edge as well
it benefits everyone
I will be interesting to see what sony's response will be with this announcement
I am thinking a similar spec'd camera with probably lower resolution and price
but who really knows just have to wait and see

sorry canon but i will stick with a used modified 6d mk1 or ii or 5d mk ii for a fraction of the cost not going to pay you more for less

HaroldC3: Limited edition to like 1000 units? I don’t understand how someone doesn’t just buy an R and send into a conversion service.

Johans81 Not always there are conversion companies that will warrantee the cameras if they are bought new and then use their conversion services.
The warrantee just changes from canon to the conversion company for any warrantee ssues

cdembrey: Everything isn't developed for photo-gear-geeks. I can easily see a US-Navy Seal flying this drone through an air-conditioning-duct.

ya thats not called spying thats called an announcement as a drone flying in an amplification chamber i.e. an A/C air duct ya no would hear that

pentaust: 10 awards. 3 of them captured with full frame. 7 of them captured with aps-c. 2 of them captured with entry level aps camera models. 0 of them captured with a mirrorless camera. Looks like D500, 7DII and 1DxII did an excellent job here, but most importantly the photographer was there are the right time and place to press the shutter button.

yes and almost all of them caught with high end professional lenses that cost several times or more what the bodies cost its about the glass people

Hautedawg: Sony really has canikons shooters Insecure.

Sony cameras are brand new. Professional shooters have thousands in lenses, they aren't switching until they need to. Same reason you won't see Z series or EOS R cameras in these for a while.

LOL you just gotta love DPR comments section even when its not about sony it becomes about sony

Link | Posted on Jul 21, 2019 at 13:55 UTC

Have to wait for the reviews but if it is in the same class as the 28-75 for IQ I may have to seriously consider this and selling my Tamron 15-30 G1 VC
I only use that lens Astroscapes due to its huge size I think I could give up the 2mm on the wide end to have a much smaller lighter lens that would see more use outside of just Astro stuff plus it is a native E-mount which would be nice

I will be looking forward to the reviews and hoping for the best

drummercam: Irresponsible marketing. Earth at a cliff edge can break out from under you. Ask the rangers at Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, or Yosemite National Parks. DPR should pull this "news" down immediately.

going into mature can be dangerous when no common sense is used
as will using products irresponsibly in nature
you cant prevent stupid people from doing stupid things with electronic devices lets not fill our parks with warning labels for people that have no common sense that's called natural selection

Chillbert: How feasible would it be to program a drone to do this, thus avoiding the awkward arm-in-the-air part? Can drones be programmed? Can they fly fast enough and maneuver tightly enough? Just curious.

would be difficult to get a non racing drone to go in that tight of circle at that speed you could always do it with playing with frame rates and playback speed with a drone but it would not be the same effect are real time
