focuspulling: This laughable price inflation is due to the combination of Sony's greedy ownership stake (and price-gouging anti-trust behavior), alongside spammy blowhards like SonyAlphaRumors that beg for clicks to pay for bread: they're thrilled to see the prices go up, for more commission revenue, and they even put out polls asking "how much would you be willing to pay?" Tamron/Sony gets a false sense of consumer tolerance from these raving fanboys who shoot weddings for bridezillas.

Translation: This lens is not available for my camera mount.

Stacked sensors are the new standard for modern digital cameras.

Nice looking camera, would prefer a removable grip but still tempting.

This is great news for Nikon and Nikon users, designing their next high speed sports/action camera around the super fast stacked sensor will bring this struggling company back to the top in terms of performance and capability. The result will be increased sales of the entire line of cameras and lenses. Long live Nikon!

You're not going to convince anyone but yourself, save your breath.

Video-vs-photo: f11 for close to flat subject, again blame on Sony menus......

A really dumb joke.

It's not but you seemed to have convinced yourself so just go with it.

mxx: Wow, all that detail!

Using the loupe, you can even see plenty of detail through the haze. Three transmitting towers and a crane are clearly visible. Impressive.

Video-vs-photo: Same here, pretty high ISO for pretty static subject.

Must be the menu. :)

Video-vs-photo: ISO 3200 ?!?! You can easily go for 1/10 or 1" if needed here.

Anytime a photo is not to your liking it's always the menu. That's funny.

poppyjk: Focus seems to be on the middle of the side of the middle sheep. Ok if that was the intent. Seems like eye focus would be desired.

Using the Loupe the eyes almost closed and are barely visible through the wool/fur so it's likely the eye auto focus failed here.

Petroleum products do generate that rainbow effect when spilled on wet pavement, not sure LoCa is the correct terminology.

Video-vs-photo: Again ISO1000/ 1/500 for bird on the branch, blame on Sony menu maybe ...........

What does the menu have to do with the ISO and speed setting?

A job well done by Sony's lens team.

Some may desire this lens but in my opinion it's not one of Tamron's better efforts.

Dystopia: Nice looking camera body.

Just looks well constructed with sturdy controls, switches and doors. A serious tool built to take years of use.

cshyde: Funny, my Nikonos has never leaked salt water. I still use it and 25 years later it still works just fine. I also rent from Lens Rentals and I always pay for the insurance. LR is the best.

The Nikonos was designed as a submersible, of course it doesn't leak.

This is certainly a big feather in Sony's cap to land the AP deal, give credit where credit is due. Will this affect my personal buying decisions? Slightly but it will not be a major factor.
