New E-mount FF lenses
<p style="font-family:'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;color:rgb(0,0,0);">A7r:

- Lightest FF camera with interchangeable lens ever

- 36.4 MP

- gapless lens design on sensor (no AA filter)

- each on-chip lens is optimally positioned depending on its location to accommodate the sharper angle of light entering the periphery, which is caused by larger sensor dimensions being teamed with the E-mount’s short flange-back distance

- new BIONZ X image processing engine

- 14-bit RAW image

- ISO 100-25600 (with 50 ISO extension)

- Advanced 1200-zone evaluative metering

- 4fps (Max. 1.5fps, Speed Priority Continuous shooting)

- 1/8000 to 30sec shutter

- TRILUMINOS™ Color technology (color space)

- 1080 HD uncompressed, 60p/24p and 60i frame-rates. AVCHD and MP4 codec.

- 2.4M dot OLED EVF

- 25 points contrast AF

- +/- 5EV compensation

- tiltable 3.0” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD

- Multi-interface Shoe for flash

- PC control with remote video capture control

- Wi-Fi®/NFC control

- Playmemories App

- weight 465g (with battery and card)

- battery 1080 mAh for 340 shots (with LCD monitor always on!)

- weather sealed body

<p style="font-family:'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;color:rgb(0,0,0);">A7 (I do only list what’s different from the A7r):

- 24 MP

- 117 points (phase-detection AF), 25 points (contrast-detection AF)

- 5fps (Max. 2.5fps, Speed Priority Continuous shooting)

Officially anounced. I find this figure interesting :lol:

You just wonder how many lens lines they want/can support.  I am wondering whether that will cost them - most serious amateur users want to see commitment to future support. 


First of all - I am massively impressed.


But then I also see something like this


Sample photo from the Zeiss 24-70mm. Obviously decentered (upper left vs bottom right).

Honestly they should at least pay attention to their online sample images.


I don't get it.

I'm also slightly wondering about the size/weight of the new 70-200/4.

The weight and size should be similar to the Nikkor I guess?

If so there would be an obvious mismatch between the camera and the lens - and yes, this thing looks big.

Honestly I'm not sure whether a general purpose full format mirrorless camera makes sense.

Can you imagine a 500mm lens & this camera ?


For street photography, landscape and portraits - yes, just like Leica M. But for sports and wildlife (assuming that the AF was good enough) ?

This image with the 55f1.8 seems to have no LoCA; do you think it was removed in PP or the lens is APO ?


Filter diameter: 72mm

dimensions 80 × 175mm

weight: 840g 

min focus: 1-1.5m

9 aperture blades (circular)
