Mark Turney: I don't really get this continual need to simulate something old. If you want that look and feel, shoot with film (negative or slide). Please .... let's move forward with making THIS digital "medium" as good as it can be.

" It's fake nostalgia, it has no soul"

I'm betting there is something in your life that you praise that is an analog version of something where there is a newer alternative but you prefer the old.

Whether it's furniture, or jewellery, or vinyl, or cars, or machines, or blenders, or stamps, or whatever. There will be something where you say "They just don't make them like they used to" and pine for the good old days, when objectively the newer versions are really better.

So what?

If that's what it is to you, then don't use it. That doesn't make it so for everyone.

It's about making it more human.

Neez: This would be good for people using a new macbook pro, which doesn't have an SD slot.

It can still use SD-cards.

Could you put it in one of those ziplock, waterproof cases without causing any network issues? This product seems to be one crying out to be 'ruggedized'.

If it was to make it waterproof, that would have been a worthy tradeoff, but Phil's explanation is pretty much "just because, hey".

I'd love to see a version of this lens for Sony E-mount.

In reply to:

rfsIII: If Sony is the Kodak of image sensor makers (because they seem to produce the majority) then who is the Agfa? Or the Fuji or the GAF or the Ilford or the Bergger or the Adox?
Why do I care? I'd like to be able to pick my phone based on sensor characteristics, rather than brand. Apple phones make nice images and all, but they feel a little too nice...

Fujifilm are the Ilford.

Nigel Tafferham: Too bad no 'forced euthanasia' for the mentally challenged such as these twits or at least dragging by testicle appendage on an asphalt highway at 100mph !!

Incredible acts - but then there is the 'Trump' !

"What if the vandals are women ?"

It's an interesting question. What chance do you think it was?

steelhead3: This camera takes the guts of the 7rII and 77II and makes for a complete package...too bad other makers (other than Panasonic) are not pushing the envelope.

Yes, good points MrCentrist and Interestingness. Isn't it weird how you agree? I'd guess that even your IP address is the same.

Krich13: OK, I am not sure I’m getting this straight.
A lens almost a stop _slower_ than Batis 85, _without_ autofocus, _without_ IS weighs 100 grams MORE than Batis? And costs $100 more too? Is it a joke?

One is mainly plastic and will last 20 years. The other is mainly metal and will last 100.

AshMills: I think its a shame this lens is not f2 at least, particularly bearing in mind it's weight. I'm sure it is gorgeous, but there is nothing worst than framing up and wishing you had a bit more light - especially without IS to fall back on.. I nearly bought the Batis till I saw the LED screen on the top that you cant read unless you look down on it, and will require a bit of tape over on some occasions..

"No I can see why they made it 2.4, all I said was that its a shame. I had the Nikon AI primes that mostly matched nicely so I appreciate the idea."

Speaking of the Nikkors, it would have been great if it was this size and a 105/2.4.

"especially without IS to fall back on"

Get an A7 II, A7S II or A7rII and you have IS to fall back on.

(see that was already covered, sorry)

meanwhile: Nice. Hopefully more competition like this will force Sony to add touch-to-focus as well, eventually.

If this doesn't raise their eyebrows then they are looking at the wrong thing.

Mister Roboto: More marketing BS as always. Anybody with $50 P&S camera + courtside game ticket or access to these POV will be able to produce better if not similar results.

Which paragraph said it had a decent grip and longer than 56mm equivalent?

Did the article say otherwise?
