kobakokh: with G9 price will be about 3700 USD. Great!

Not really comparable. The A7RIII has a full frame sensor while the G9 has a quarter frame sensor

A better comparison IMO is a Nikon D500 plus 70-300mm VR or 70-200mm f4 or the new Tamron 70-210mm f4. Both are speedy bodies.

milkod2001: I presume if it will perform at 24-70 g2 levels it would cost around $1500 to start with and after a few months will go for $1200. This lens could be great value compared to 24-70 GM if it will perform well.

From rumors it seems this will match the price point of the 24-70mm f4 at launch i.e. $1200 which feels a little steep but hopefully the price will settle down to below $1k after a year.

CaptainCrunchy: I bought the Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 with a NIkon mount for $200 on sale a few years ago. With the mirrorless mark up and possibly improved glass this should sell for under $600,
Did they mention the price yet?

Today for anyone wanting to get in to FF photography, The D610 can be had for $600 and a similar Tamron 28-75 F/2.8 for $200. That is a formidable combo. Add an $80 50mm F/1.8 prime and you are set with some of the best IQ around.

You do realise that its likely that over the 15 years that the Tamron lens was released Tamron may have updated the optical formula to something better ?

This lens other than the focal length bares little comparison to the older 28-75mm f2.8 DSLR lens.

The older 28-75mm is a pretty good lens no doubt but this one should be much better and it will be priced much higher than $600.

cirtapfotos: Love to see this lens on that Puny Sony A7rlll...without a Battery Grip...lol.

Ok fine then consider a 70-200mm f2.8 lens. I was referring to the balance. The 70-200mm f4 is front heavy. I use it by holding the lens rather the camera. And I have used the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 with an adapter with no problems.

Not saying I enjoy the weight but its not really any issue. Using the 70-200mm f2.8 with a 5d mark 3 is more comfortable to hold but is even heavier and is just a fatiguing.

sportyaccordy: Yea, DEFINITELY sticking with my 85 1.8. 105 weighs more than my body with 2 lenses

It's a question of quality. The Sigma is designed to be sharp and contrasty wide open which leads to its huge size. Unfortunately with more MPs lenses are getting bigger and bigger to match the resolution.

I don't see the problem. I use a Sony 70-200mm f4 lens which should be about the size of this lens.

And no one complains about attaching a 500mm prime to a puny 7D. You adjust.

Shiranai: Take a good look, Canon.
That is what an enthusiast-level camera offers.
1/8000 shutter, 1/250 sync, almost 700 focus points, 4K video.
Unlike the crippled cr4p you call a 6D Mark II.

Just a query but where does it state that 1/8000 is available only as electronic shutter? I can't find any such limitation mentioned.

Georgeee: This is what I like about Sony (as a Canon user). It packs all they have and release it without holding any back. Much more exciting than Canon. It may cost their higher end cameras, but will take much big shares of the market in the long run. Well done, Sony!

If it was Nikon camera with their lack of video experience I would understand. But it's canon and they have a vast plethora of expertise building professional video cameras. I can't accept they don't know how to do full sensor readout with a brand new chip for 4k on an APS-C sensor when Sony have been doing it for some time now on larger sensors.

James Benet: Excellent camera, what is missing: 4k 60p, any slow-mo mentions? 10-bit video codec? Maybe. This camera is the perfect Wedding shooters package for sure.

Panasonic will need to either drop pricing or step up their game. The GH5s is much cheaper to make than this FF cam and yet it costs $500 more how is that realistic? Sony AF, excellent high ISO performance, 14 stop DR with Slog2/3 all for $2k! Sony is getting serious about destroying the competition.

Still waiting for the a7s III announcement probably at NAB in April. And I am a Panasonic System owner, that might be my first Sony mirrorless!

It has 1080 at 120 fps. 10 bit codec is a definite no I feel.

PNad: No word on anti distortion eshutter, its the same as the A7RIII, it does band in alot of scenarios.

Considering the A7rIII was released just a short while ago I would wager this thing lacks that.

Droster: As a concerned Nikon user I want to see how Nikon stands up to the 15 stop DR and ISO, amongst other things, with their FF mirrorless.
Things could get ugly for Nikon.

This is marketing speak from Sony. And honestly expect this sensor or something very much like this in their D750 replacement

Sutlore: then A9 will never be bought by any pro... A7III is much cheaper and would have excellent performance as A9.

The A9 has an insane buffer and with 20 fps shooting. Plus the faster sensor readout means no viewfinder blackout. These features will be lacking in the A7 III but its still a fantastic camera for the price.

brendon1000: Yesss !!! Just when my A7 II has given me enough trouble that I want to replace it this comes out. Sold !!!

(For me) Positives

- 24 MP sensor (Yeah !!!! Fed up of how much the 42 MP files of my A7rII slow down my 6 core PC)

- 10 fps (Ok I hardly shoot bursts but 10 fps is impressive)

- Z battery (The best feature for me yet. Fed up of charging so many batteries to take to a shoot as I shoot with 2 cameras)

- AF speed is a good plus point though I was pretty happy with my A7 II except in very low light

- Joystick and touchscreen is just the icing on the cake ! :)

Negatives

- The price ! (Sony has moved up the entry level FF camera but considering the features I can understand).

Lol I don't sell any of my used equipment that is defective. Keep it as backup or spare stuff. Years ago I sold someone my old camera that I knew had an issue but it was easy to hide it. I felt so guilty afterwards that I even checked up with the buyer a year later to see if the camera was still working as my conscience was eating at me for 1 year.

After that I decided the guilt wasn't worth the money I got.

^^ Totally different camera and price segment. But yeah the M50 you can tell was hobbled purposely to avoid competition with higher end cameras.

GrapeJam: Strange that there was no mention of IBIS. Still the specs look amazing, c'mon Nikon! I'm sick of all these secrecy.

Good catch ! I actually got scared for a minute as I scrounged all the press data and found no mention but thankfully saw steadyshot inside on one of the leaks.

kelstertx: What are the chances that the top 3/4 of this is, optically, the 28-75 XR Di from 10 years ago, and the bottom half is "Canon to Sony E adapter", for lack of a better word? That's all Laowa did with their 105 STF -- made it in Canon and Nikon, then fixed a hollow adapter permanently on the bottom and called it E mount. Makes it 40% or so longer than other mounts.

It's not long enough! The lens is 175mm. Same as the new Tamron 70-210mm f4 for DSLRs. If it was a DSLR design with a hollow tube it would be much longer to compensate.

The second option about the hollow tube is easily done by pure MF lenses with no electronics. However it's far harder and not done so far with any DSLR AF lens.
