May be Sony can launch a winder for the a7 (at least something that makes that whining, pro noise) :-)

On article Vintage lens shootout: three lenses, one model (76 comments in total)

Minolta has produced some incredible lenses in the 70ies and 80ies which adapt well to the a7. Same for Carl Zeiss Jena. MD24/2.8, MD35/1.8, MD 50/1.4, CZJ80/2.8 and CZJ 135/3.5 make a very affordable set of outstanding lenses. Or try the Minolta 3570/3.5 Version II or III. An incredible zoom.

If this was on a high speed train track in Europe or at a place where you can't hear and see a train approaching - but it is not.

tassosDA: Sorry, I'm not a Sony user but I have to ask this: Do all Sony costumers who just recently bought an a6300 , feel somehow stupid?? The a6300 was announced just 8 months ago and many of you bought it for over of 1300 euros! And now they came up with a new camera! So I guess it's safe to say don't go and buy this one because they will probably announce its successor in less than a year...

Sony keeps selling all three models. So the a6300 did not replace the a6000 and the a6500 does not replace both. It may for some who were desperate for IBIS or touch screen.

It is not a successor - it is a line extension. It is another option, not a must.

noflashplease: It looks as if Sigma's own SA-mount has a real future in the mirrorless age. I like the idea of an adapter from the same manufacturer as the lens. It seems a lot less risky than buying from a 3rd party Chinese manufacturer. This development also removes the long terms risks of buying a Sigma DSLR or mirrorless body.

Looks like the Tamron Adaptal system way back.

migus: Canon's new campaign is negative, in fact it's overloaded with negativity more than any social networking mood manipulation experiment (worth a google).

Little wonder its 1500-strong feedback on DPR in the same vein, NEGATIVE, and the ill-will this marketing experiment has generated: One harvests what one's has sown...

Canon has broken into new territory, together with breaking the rules #1, #2 and #3 of marketing: Always adopt a POSITIVE, CONFIDENT, CAN-DO!

Canon, pls. address the critique not by words and counter-arguments, never by contempt or denial, but by constructive proof to the contrary: Scheme, method solving the issues => Product!

If Canon's CMOS fabs are arguably left behind the SoA (state-of-the-art) by ca. half dozen generations (14, 18, 22, ..., 40+ nm), this may indeed affect their sensors and vertical integration. Yet Nikon has shown that these are not show-stoppers, albeit itself not a model in innovation vs. Sony et al.

Negative marketing doesn't sell product.

And also add mine as negative

G1Houston: I am a long time Nikon user and have incorporated m4/3 into my system for its good IQ and compact size. However to photograph my kids, I am now mostly using the almost 3 year old D7100 which is just a blast to use — it is fast, with excellent IQ, and its focus tracking is outstanding. Now Nikon has put a state-of-the-art FF sensor in a body that is even lighter than the D7100 with even better AF and metering system, all for just a little bit over $2,000. I thus wonder what is the advantage of the mirrorless system that dpreview and others seem to promote it as the future of photography? Take A7 as an example, you can make the camera only that small before handling becomes a real problem and its lenses are not substantially smaller than those of Nikon/Canon, and are certainly very expensive. What is the advantage of the mirrorless — why does IT have to be the future?

@kadardr: I totally agree with your last statement. With regard to firesales: Me thinking that Soy wants to force people into buying their systems for as long as Canon is not ready in that area. Hell, at the price I am considering every day again whether to buy an A7. Once you buy the camera and some lenses, it's much harder for many to switch. And if you happen to like what you bought, why switch back at all? A Canon me too will not make me move back.

@kadardr: Glad you have the "real" answer. So what if MILC are cheaper to produce? As long as they give me an advantage that DSLRs don't, who cares?

Because as a "normal" though advanced hobby photographer, you don't need the bulk of a 7D to get very good IQ and a camera that is fast and responsive. I can make the Sony a6000 very small or I can attach the Sigma 1.8 18-35 to it - my choice. And the EVF connects me directly to the image as it will coem out. That's why.

Improve IQ? You must be kidding ornever used a G1X!
