    Ladies and gentleman, Sony is serious, it has announced 24-70mm 2.8 and 70-200mm 2.8 for its FF sensor mirrorless cameras.
    Thats it I have nothing bad to say about Sony.
    Here is a comment I must say


    CANON AND NIKON WAKE UP OR ELSE YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND!!!!!!!!!!!

    And that new 85 1.4 looks dreamy.... I can't wait to see tests. I really hope they all live up to the hype--and the price.

    I think goodguy isn't referring to them catching up on lenses, but rather on full frame mirrorless. Or in Nikon's case, APS-C mirrorless.

    Sony A7 is hurting Nikon and Canon, spoke with camera sale people and they say that the A7 is really making a dent into Canon and Nikon sales, Some Canon and Nikon users are moving to Sony.
    What was holding back many DSLR FF users from jumping ship to Sony A7 was a lack of these lenses, it was a big hole in Sony's offering.
    This is also a sign Sony is serious about its A7 lineup.
    Anyone dismissing this camera and this maker is not looking at reality.
    I personally know a pro photographer moving from Nikon to Sony A7RII and he is very happy.

    These lenses are apparently being built to specs not before seen in lenses, with big huge numbers and cool graphs with big prices to match. They may make the a7 line more attractive to users but these stable workhorse pro lenses already exist for the big 2, with fairly respected modern designs also.

    Only the zooms. I'll stick with my MF primes that I have now.

    I was at best buy over the weekend
    walked past the Sony section and the A7s and A6x00 had BIG lenses on them from the last time I walked through. I should have stopped to check them out but was too busy trying to find a clickless mouse for my son.

    The Wifi would come in handy. looks like SONY is putting all the tech into these things as they can.

    I shot some indoor soccer this past weekend in JPEG on my d600 & 80-200/2.8. So for me a FF is required. The pics Came out pretty decent considering that the lighting was really bad. I wouldn't mind minimal processing before uploading the pics for the parents. though uploaded 78 of 200 pics .. kinda a lot to process through an iPhone, considering I'm in/out of the place fairly fast.

    I am not preaching to move to Sony, I am a Nikon fan but I do want to see Nikon and Canon getting into mirrorless in a serious way and not with their silly M and 1 series, Sony is getting bigger and bigger and I want both Canon and Nikon to stay here for many more years to come.
