'Now the camera manufacturers, the fanboys and the brand besotted don't like this at all, but then if that isn't a great reason to champion adapting lenses I don't know what is!!!'

WHAT THE SONY A7s OFFERS IN GOOD AND BAD LIGHT

WHAT THE SONY A7s OFFERS IN GOOD AND BAD LIGHT
"It's always struck me that mirrorless is a choice, in the main, for those who take their photography seriously and are interested in more than snapshots. And the A7s is a VERY serious camera. For me, it's the best all-round camera I've ever bought and used and it's the first camera I've never felt in some way inhibited by. I really do feel that I can go anywhere and shoot anything with it. It's a strange feeling, but I must say I think it's going to be addictive. "

Nikon Df - Overpriced plaything or serious camera?

Nikon Df - Overpriced plaything or serious camera?

I've had some mixed feelings about this camera. I got all excited when Nikon were teasing it, but when it finally appeared I was somewhat disappointed. By the look and it's knobfest appearance and mostly by the price. However I always had it in the back of my mind that I would end up with one at some point. Reviews were mixed, but mainly focusing on the negatives.

Mirrorless Expansion





From Mirrorless Rumors - http://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/zeiss-cosina-voigtlander-sigma-and-tamron-all-do-join-the-sony-nex-system/
In a flurry of activity over the past few days we have seen announcements that Zeiss, Schneider-Kreuznach and Komamura have "joined" micro-thirds in addition to Cosina-Voigtlander. Today Sony have announced that Zeiss, Cosina-Voigtlander, Sigma and Tamron are going to be "joining" the Nex system.


So it looks like we are going to be getting an expansion of what both these systems are able to offer in terms of lenses. Since both Panasonic and Sony have produced video cameras in addition to stills cameras that share the same mounts, some of what is planned is obviously destined for that. The ultra-expensive Zeiss movie lenses being an example. Zeiss is no surprise for the NEX system as they already make lenses for Sony.


The rapidly increasing sales of these compact system cameras is obviously of interest to 3rd. Party lens makers and they see an opportunity for sales and probably also don't wish to be involved in any "boat missing".


What will come out of all this in terms of products, we can only wait and see.
All this a day after Canon seemingly signaled their continuing non-involvement (non-interest?) in anything "mirrorless", with the announcement of the 600D and 1100D.


If nothing else all this should make for some interesting speculative posting over the next few days!


UPDATE.


Sigma are going to make lenses for m4/3 as well as NEX.
