Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Sony Announces the A7 & A7R Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras« on: January 20, 2014, 05:34:16 PM »
and I was blown away to find out that an existing Sony E mount 10-18mm f/4 lens (meant for crop frame) actually works AS FULL FRAME 12-18 lens at full resolution of the Sony a7 ... and it has image stabilization and it is on pact light weight lens. WOW! now that is freaking AWESOME ... I will be ordering it this weekend. Me very excited.
Watch the video at around 25 minutes mark, where the guy shows the lens.http://youtube.com/watch?v=GSSoQnD5vzE
I am very surprised about that 10-18 mm being useful on FF (at least at >12mm) because it has quite bad vignetting even on APS-C sensor (2.5 EV at 10 mm end and 1.72 EV at 14mm). I would be interested in seeing actual wide angle FF shots on larger screens, not on camera LCD.
My enthusiasm is also tampered by the fact the 10-18mm is not exactly a cheap lens at $850
