69camaroSS: Funny how Canon can ignore a camera system for 4 years and nobody accuses them of abandoning the system, but Sony has to release a new camera every year or it gets accused of jumping ship.

@AbrasiveReducer

5DS has 50mp, hasn't it?

Canon still sells 1993'EF 50mm f/1.4 USM, 1996'135/2L, EF 85 mm f/1.2L II USM, which is slightly updated version of 1989 lens... Are they so bad because of their age?

P.S. 70-200/2.8II a bit pricey, agree))

"No lens for the last 5 years " - really? Zeiss 50/1.4, 70-400G2, 70-200G2, 24-70G2, 16-35G2, 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II, 500mm f/4 G SSM, DT 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM, DT 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM II, DT 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM, DT 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SAM were introduced last 5 years

Barbu: Now, why would they cripple such a nice camera by giving it an EVF instead of the optical viewfinder? Their other SLTs were just glorified mirorrless cameras, but with the added disadvantage of still having the mirror as a hindrance for the sensor *and* the main AF module. At least it doesn't have to flap around...
I think an A900mkII would have been much more welcomed.

@Eric Calabros

Really? Sony A99 get 89 at 2012, while 5Dmark4 has 91. Do You really believe that the best FF sensor yet will get the same or lower score than 4 year old 24mp sensor?

Jefftan: Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens is a real winner
same weight 300 gram as Sony E 18-105 but go much longer

to me the real weakness in the mount is widest ultra wide only go 18mm vs Sony 15mm
also no Sigma 3rd party support, Samyang support it I think, any others?

@rrccad

Optically superior? With only T5.1 at F4?

It's normal that f4 zoom is more expensive than f4-5.6. About lack of quality - have You used 10-18? Or You just read somewhere about it? I have read a lot about problems with quality of Canon lenses, but it doesn't mean that I should write about it without having used it.

Azathothh: Yeah no 4K but then again the A6300 doesn't do 4K also, without overheating.

A6300 overheats only in specific conditions(high temperature, movies longer than 20 min, and so on). There are wedding videographers in our city who use A6300 and never had any overheating

John C Tharp: Also, on lenses: while one can complain about the need to adapt DSLR lenses, it should also be mentioned that Canon has done a much better job with this than Sony did, while the likes of Sigma and Metabones try to hack around Sony's limitations.

All Canon EOS lenses are native on the EOS-M cameras with the Canon (or even the cheap third party!) adapters because there is no logic in the adapter- they work the same way electronic extension tubes due, except they have different flanges on each end.

This camera doesn't need much more in terms of native lenses to be fairly effective, and we won't likely see Canon get 'serious' about EF-M lenses until they pull the sensor out of the 5D IV (or hypothetical 6D II) and make a full-frame version and accompanying lenses.

@moawkwrd

Yes, You're right. But still not 10 years old AF system)

Sony E 18-105 has constant f4

"10 year old APS-C DSLT body " - really? LA-EA4 has the same AF module as A65(2011)

18-110 is 27mm – 165mm equiv. in 35mm format

What does "version of 28-135 mm f4.0" mean? Different focal lenght, zoom, sensor size.

It's AF lens

The Squire: If this is the start of a trend of Sony filling out the *budget* end of their FE lens range then woo-hoo, because I might actually be able to afford an A7something at last! Give me a nifty 50, 35 and somewhere between 85 and 100, and I'm in.

This may also spell the death of APS-C for Sony.

Their APS-C range has some really well priced primes, making the cost difference between, say a A6300 kit bag and A7 kit bag huge (even for the cheapest A7 body).

Sony may be making the FE range more affordable, and watch out for a better/cheaper A7 soon, so they can put APS-C to rest.

What do you think?

"Give me a nifty 50" - FE50/1.8 is already on sale)

@Suave
"5 upgrades to a7"? A7 has 1 upgrade, A7-2. A7r/s/r2/s2 are different models, like 5Dm3 and 5Ds.

No matter for portraits, but landscapes suffer severely.
