No need to get rid of all your Canon glass, with an adaptor for the Sony you could keep using them and save yourself A LOT of money. That Sony/Zeiss glass is even more overpriced than Canon glass !
Funny how many people want to jump ship in a few years because Sony is supposedly to be the next big thing. Everyone has expectations that Sony will have great glass to go with the mirrorless in the near future. Canon will simply stand still ... eh?
With such great expectations from a company that is not even making a profit on the electronics division, people around here tend to think that Canon, the largest Camera selling company for the past decade, won't come up with something comparable, if not better.
i'll be honest..You go Boy! LOL!
I too am going to get the A7R. Simply because it is what i have been waiting for in a long time.
I'm a Canon fan and i have tons of Canon glass and accessories etc..
But i always thought the weight of the 5D3 was a little too much for me and since i'm not a professional, i don't "need" a professional camera do i.
I have since also made the decision to switch to Sony. I love my 5D3 and all my L glass but somehow the A7R with good zeiss glass…i couldn't see a reason why i needed to keep my canon gear.
I am in fact going to sell away everything and move to Sony by next year once the zeiss 24-70 is launched
Noting against Canon, but i think they are indeed lacking behind in the mirrorless market. I have the M, it's a joke..and with nothing new anytime soon, i can't wait…
all these new cameras are great. However, the breaking point will only arrive if and when Sony can come up with lenses as good as the 24-70 II, 70-200 II, etc.
For me there is no point buying a Ferrari chassis and pairing it with a Mazda engine.
As a second / travel kit probably it is great but the lens collection is too small to be a primary kit. I might consider it once the option for the lenses grow in time.
Cheers ... J.R.
YES, this is really what we all expect from Canon! As long as we get overpriced, engraved dwarf-sensored Pointnshoots we don't even notice that Sony is bringing FF-sensored mirrorless system cameras to market.
Canon is seriously off-track. They are in for hard times. Another Nokia going to happen.
"Only a red-ring fanboy will buy this"
I have tested the Siggy and the 35 L has been the holy grail absolute killer go to lens for a VERY long time and where it counts the most for me will always be AF and the L destroys the Siggy. Not
So when the 35 L II comes out it will most likely be the best focusing 1.4 lens of
All times... Combine that with weather sealing and I'm buying!
I can't help but wonder how Canon will price this. If it is priced the way Canon is going about the new lenses, I expect it to be in the range of $ 1,500 to $ 2,000 but then it will have to be substantially better than the Sigma's offering, which retails for less than $ 900.
Interesting times these, maybe Canon will be caught in a bind and the pricing will be "affordable" just because of existence of the Siggy
You will be blown away by the 5DIII coming from the 600D, and yes, it will probably be 2+ years for the 5DIV.The 5Div will be introduced at $4000...consider that. The III is PLENTY of camera...look for sales..you can buy one for $2500 if you keep your eyes open.
Allow me to support the latest speakerI could have written a better review!
Permit me to disagree.
I've seen your writing.
And Bob, when I hit that lottery, the first thing I'm doing is buying one of these lenses for you -- you're one of the major league guys who actually deserves one and knows what to do with it! I'll let you know what day to meet me at B&H!!!
Look, the reviewer obviously hasn't read the commentary on this website regarding the lens because quite clearly, without autofocus, this lens is not worth $4000 and nobody will buy it without autofocus, even if it is the sharpest lens since the big bang.
