I hear ya. After paying the last tax bill and looking today at a new transmission for my wife's Accord, I think the cameras I already own are out of my league!They both look great, the 7r in particular. But I'm having a hard time coming up with $900 for a DP2 Merrill. These are clearly out of my league, especially the one I'd be really interested in.
I wonder how big they will be relative to the RX1.
It looks like a marriage of the NEX + OMD.OK. I don't like the design at all. I think it's just angular and ugly. But that's a personal thing. Someone else might find it gorgeous. Also, the looks won't stop it from being a smashing success. Everyone else will be playing catch-up now, but I am not at all attracted to that design. Maybe it'll look better in person
Thanks Serhan! That's not bad at all then -- size-wise. The ZM50 Plannar was a good point of reference given that I've owned one in the past. Thank you! These new cameras are exciting!
My question is now whether or not Sony can ship these in quantity by December 1!
I read the new FF cams will come with "crop mode" so you can use the really lousy NEX APS-C glass on it, lol.
Seriously, though, there are a few (very few) good lenses, and the rumor is the micro-lenses are optimized for the short distance, so legacy lenses might be pretty fun here.
