  • Agreed, didn't see any mention of camera mount being plastic in the linked article, only internal lens construction.

    The Sony A7 and A7R use mounts fitting of a an entry level camera. Glad they...

  • 삼성 are the two syllables, pronounced roughly like SAHM (삼) -SOHNG (성), literally the name translates as 3 Stars (tristar) as I understand it. Not to be confused with triforce, from my favorite...

  • But that has already been done by Sony, so I think this will have to be something totally new or their ad will backfire.

  • Personally, I am more worried about getting a good sample of a lens than I am about the warranty.

  • Where is the report on cut in half gear? :) Those are always fun.

    Thanks for the coverage and interviews.

  • Supposed to be released next year. They had samples at Photokina.

  • Actually, most of the Samsung lenses are very good, maybe 2 or 3 not so good lenses.

  • Actually, most of the Samsung lenses are very good, maybe 2 or 3 not so good lenses. I would put most of them on a comparable level as Fuji (Fuji has more large aperture primes so can't really...

  • It is for wedding shooters, very important focal length. I can't give up 50mm wide end for indoors shooting. There is a reason the 70-200mm is so popular on full frame and why they don't make...

  • I see very clearly where it fits in, and I am excited to see it offered. I am sure you will see similar from Fuji and Sony in the Future. Look at all the huge lenses coming out from Fuji, I can...

  • A7 still is a great camera. I expect Sony might also release an A99 class mirrorless camera. I.e., something more like an SLR. Just speculation of course, but I imagine they will with all the...

  • I wouldn't say they are the only one. I think Fuji, Samsung, and Sony will all be in there. Companies get turned over every time there is a major technology shift if they don't have products to...
