RED is very quick in responding to Sony's latest announcements.

And Sony is only the third largest manufacturer (at 18% total market revenue), Both Samsung and Omnivision are larger than Sony.Hmm, you are quite incorrect, actually.
either this lens is like 800USD MSRP or its DOA.
24-70mm f/4L IS?
Here are my predictions:
$2999 this Christmas
i don't think this can happen. ...
i don't think you'll see this camera sell for less than 3k until the mark iv comes out.
The next major innovation from Sony is to combine the image processing logic with the sensor die using a "3D" layered die attachment process. That won't really revolutionize IQ ...
There are two ways we might see a new 180nm sensor first - either in an APS-C format, where the production yields are higher, and as a result the cost per sensor is more palatable on a new fab, or in a high end high resolution FF body where a high cost per sensor can be absorbed through the premium price of the product.
It looks like noone wants my money unless I give them ALL of it.
The performance of the new sensor: that is the key to whether or not I'll be interested.
Part of the reason I went with Canon a decade ago is because Nikon stripped down their lower end bodies to the bone, thought way too much of themselves, and priced accordingly. Now Canon seems to have that attitude, while Nikon wants to be cut throat competitive. I don't like what I'm seeing in terms of Canon pricing for a given feature set.
I suspect 6D will be a super success.
I will not buy it but I know of lot of people around me who want an inexpensive full frame camera with good IQ.
They are casual photographers who want super quality for a super price without the 'bells and whistles'.
The world has far more 'casual' photographers who want value for money compared to photographers who want everything on their camera.
The thing that gets some people upset is when you've invested huge sums of money in the glass, and then they "hold back" on the camera.
The 7D MK II will most likely completely redefine APS-C.
Drop the MP's to about 16, Dramatically improve the noise, IQ and DR and upgrade the AF.
To me it's a no brainer!
