    Let's see how amazing it is when it arrives. At $3000 it has to be amazing.

    This camera is so awesome, it handles fantastically and the IQ is out of this world. I've pre-ordered it at Amazon, B&H and Adorama

    So, Sony is maintaining there one body per lens ratio? :biggrin: Just kidding, yeah, it looks pretty dang cool and nice to see Sony doing something so aggressive.

    I wonder how this would hold up maintenance-wise (e.g. sticky dust on sensor, etc.) ...?

    This camera is absolute crap, it handles badly and the IQ is mediocre. No-one in their right mind would buy this camera.

    :rofl: I agree! It will only offer 18% better IQs than my OM-D when shooting in a vacuum.

    No EVF apparently. Weird.

    Something about this seems fake. Gut instinct, perhaps, but I call BS. (Yes, I know there are some reasons it could be real.)

    So you handled it and have RAW files to conclude on IQ, I assume.

    I'm just wowed by every new pre-photokina announcement/leak. First the Fuji, now this :)
    which one's going to replace my DP2...? :)

    At the rumored price point, no viewfinder is actually beyond weird. Even though I've heard that the screen on the little Sony RX-100 is easy to see even in bright sun, I can't imagine people paying $3,000 for a camera wouldn't expect a VF of some sort.

    There will be an external EVF and an external OVF (according to the latest rumors).

    That was my thought too. I think Pictor must be right. I just can't imagine a $3000K camera without a viewfinder. I couldn't afford this and if I was going to pay $3000 for a FF camera I'd get a D800. At that price point I would have to be able to change the lens. But....I bet Sony sells them if it's real.

    Ken says it's not a real FF sensor because only Canon and Nikon can make those.
