Siobhan A: What kind of IS does the lens have again? And will this sell for $1800 on Amazon like the Nikon and Canon versions with IS? Or will Sony charge their typical 15% premium over their $1899 MSRP?
I think the fact that Sony expects A6300 owners to buy some of these lenses or consider it. Sony has been showing the A6300 also with these lenses after all. Which makes sense in the sense that it can use them and they are probably Sony-branded best lenses in a system that needs better lenses.
Another question- is the shutter any faster when used electronically?
Raist3d: So Sony *finally* cares about making good solid lenses. About time :-)(though the 55 F1.8 prime is as good as it gets).
Dead focal length? Are you F*cking kidding me?And didn't you know, this lens support another focal length too on the best seller a6000/6300 line? ;-)
princecody: Sony has Better glass than Leica :)
@Op- right ;-)
BostonC: You missed the most important diagram, IMO, that illustrates the dual photocell structure, allowing capture of 123db in DR:http://news.panasonic.com/press/news/data/2016/02/en160203-5/en160203-5-2.jpg
I think dpreview miss the other sensor- the one you mentioned.@Falconeyes- yes, the "SR" idea is not new but what is new is that apparently they were able to scale up the resolution and do this idea (though well see what real resolution a sensor with this is made at).
The issue with Fuji's previous Super CCD SR was that it did not scale to higher resolutions.

Raist3d: Richard- any news if the RAW is lossless?
Antonio - because it's not clear from the specs and due to previous issues here they should clarify this.
mosc: I was hoping for a BSI-CMOS sensor in APS-C.
Why does this matter oh so much? Didn't you see it has copper wiring? Sony knows best when to put BSI and when not. It's not all win depending on sensor density.
Richard- any news if the RAW is lossless?
Raist3d: Gbased on a6000, a6300 ergonomics are more than fine. Tge real issue is native good eMount lens variety.
So lossy raw or lossless? Can't find from the specs.
Sorry if I missed this dpreview staff but is the RAW file lossy or lossless....? Can't find on the specs.

Looks great. Everyone thinking it's missing a BSI sensor or IBIS is missing a lot of the point here. First BSI benefits high density sensors. You would think Sony may know best than you whether it's best to make this BSI or not right? After all they design class leading sensors.
2nd - IBIS is not that important if you are shooting moving subjects. Or as the case is with this camera, you can get the ISO higher. And also keep in mind Sony has primes with OIS and the telephoto lenses have OIS... so the need for OIS is quite diminished, unless you are shooting legacy / manual lenses.
And you are getting what looks to be best in class 4k video.
Raziel Orlando: If you wanted IBIS, the camera will be priced $1300 or more. At that price you could buy an used A7II with IBIS and full-frame sensor.
Everyone thinking because it lacks IBIS it sux0rs or Olympus looks better is missing a lot here. This 24 MP sensor is class leading. The AF will be much superior to anything Olympus has. You don't need IBIS when the ISO can go further.
The real problem Sony has is the lenses. Keep ind mind even their 50 and 75 mm equivalent primes have OIS, so stop focusing on "lack of IBIS" so much. Long teles also have OIS.
photominion: the Messiah of mirrorless fanboys has arrived and he/she is ugly as fugg.. Oh, and he's also lacking in oh so many departments..
Handling must be amazing, with dozens of buttons and no proper way to change aperture AND shutter speed, iso, exposure comp, etc.
It doesn't even have a touch screen to navigate the horrific menus.It also has no IBIS and no BSI..
How does that feel guys?
It feels fine because this sensor being Non BSI is class leading. And when you can crank the ISO up a bit, IBIS is not as important.
Raist3d: And the biggie question is how does the new sensor perform. Normally ergonomics, features, things to assist the photographer as a tool are very highly prized and rightly so. But from Canon or Nikon at this tier this is expected.
But Canon has been now for several years behind Sony sensors. It would be good to see if Canon finally closed, matched or even surpassed this gap- and its worth asking in this case precisely for that reason.
I don't see what else they have on the new Nikon models other than be "Canon glass conpatible" if you own the system.
Disclosure: I am a street/wedding/event photographer. I wouldn't be carrying this tier of Canon or Nikon for that - so not my cameras. Just making an observation.
Timukto- no, Fuji doesn't "inflate" the ISO per se, much less in th current models. As you say it's a Sony sensor base... so that's still better than Canon, on part with the others but no AA filter so it's pretty sharp.
Don Sata- I rather see a more a standard comparison by someone like Dxo or focus Numerique. I don't think we can rely on samples from any of the respective company websites because they are different light conditions, etc.
but thats the thing I want to see. If it does. and If you had to chose between Nikon and Canon both great at the rest why not chose the one with the better performing sensor?
I am not saying Canon hasnt done better here- maybe they did. it would be interesting to find out if they finally did.
