It is much better than the old Olympus 12-60mm 2.8-4 SWD.

I have seen his first film "Timescapes" in cinema in 4k. It was the first time I had seed $k projection and I was a bit curious. The whole experience of that movie really took me. It was memorable for me and set some new standards. I defenitly will see this follow up, but I doubt it will impress me like Timescapes did.

The most beautifull, the F4, is missing.

Can I label it as macro if it is a rather small cat?

Ok, not easier. But you certainly need more magnification for smaller things.

(unknown member): Nikon's price-increase with each new lens iteration juggernaut continues. However, it is more or less competitive with existing 70-300mm lenses out there, Sony's being more expensive (though it is probably the best of breed) and Olympus being cheaper, but of course only for m4/3.

But the A7II does not have a modern sensor either. I know because I have one.
@Vincent: Yes, if you are determen the exposure with a hand light meter you must not calculate any exivalences.

I know there is no actual bug in the video. Beatles [wich are Insects, just like true bugs, the Heteroptera], millipedes and spiders are in the class of the Arthropod, commonly called bugs.

Dante Birchen: Great 4k video!

Microphone port No
Headphone port No
EVF optional (for how much?)

Well, the original "mirrorless" cameras are much older than leica and look more like this:

M Chambers: $1,950 is pretty steep for an APS-C camera.

Because it has lots of buttons. You know, buttons seem to be one of the more expensive parts of a camera.

But you can read, do you? In the artice there is a proper explanation of what the exit pupil is and there are pictures also. Please read before you speculate!

@ OlyPent: Guess what! Yes, they have:

The exit pupil of a Zeiss 50mm f/1,4 Planer for example is 49,7 mm.

I own 128 cameras: They finally ran out of camera scams that they decided to get into phone scams instead.

I was at NAB the year they announced the RED 1 for $17,500 and started taking $1,000 reservations for a camera that would be delivered in 6-9 months. Turned out to be more like 3-4 years.

Then there was the guaranteed to be under $5,000 professional all in one camera called EPIC. It was going to produce stills and 4K video and would be between $3,500 and $5,000.00. Well, that died a slow death when the Canon 5D Mark 1 came out.

Now a cell phone for $1,600 made out of titanium with no details on anything except the screen and the graphics chip. This won't happen. There will be plenty of people who will reserve one, and pay the final price of nearer to $3,000, or it will get dropped all together.

I said it in the beginning, I'll say it again. Snake Oil.

@Sdaniella: That ist correct. The first DSLR with Live View, the Olympus E-330, came half a year later, in 2006.

But in that example they dont't do it. Both say "E-mount, ??? format".

Sony does not call it that way. They call it E-mount only, either for cameras or for lenses. Only E-mount. I can not find an example where Sony speaks of FE-mount.

You can allways make it a bit longer. It would just be an odd design.
E-mount is E-mount. The mount does not differ. There is only E-mount. Some of the lenses are not suited for 35mm full frame.
And there is also Pentax.
