Photo forums are full of "Sony doesn't have enough lenses" messages. Even the insane pace we see now seems not enough to please the crowds.

On the other side, if the megapixel race goes on, maybe wide open will soon be the only aperture without diffraction killing the resolution.

I find it insane that people are still complaining, even though their last refuge now is the lack of "big white" class long telephotos... or an AF 35mm f/2.  ;) Me, I would've been totally fine with the Sony E-mount lens selection since the moment the 16-35/4 had hit the shelves...

Sony just launched massive trade-in campaign for A9, up to 70% bonus against the purchase of one.

At Adorama for now.

Surprising. But it confirms that the Sigma isn't that hot at 24mm.
