    OMG! I'm not sure if I need the 70-400mm and/or an A900 and a 16-35mm to go with it! Look at how sharp these two lenses are! Top quality Zeiss and G lenses!

    Thank you for posting this. I can't wait to see the resolution results and other reviews, I'm so excited!

    Definitely whips the Tokina AT-X 840's butt. But, then again ... it's three times the price and twice as heavy. It had better.

    Some more interesting discussion here

    http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_po...=440478#440478

    Looks like some other new lenses may come and in the form of Tamron rebadges too of our favorite first lens 70-300mm and the illusive 10-24mm.

    And possibly a 50mm F/1.8, which is odd... but I guess appropriate since other makers have this.

    Yeah, Sony needs a 50mm f/1.8 for sure.

    I was reading an article about the 50mm f/1.4's in a recent PopPhoto, and they said that most of them (except the upcoming Nikon) are from the film era, and focus slower? Is that true? Also, when you buy a Sony prime now, do they have the digital coatings, or are they the exact same as the old film versions?

    It's funny that they would bring the Tamron 70-300, would it be as a replacement for the 75-300, or sit between that one and the G as a mid range?

    All the talk in that thread about a new kit lens sounds good. Nikon and Canon replaced their kit lens on the low-end bodies recently with a much improved version with IS, Sony is due to do the same.

    I wonder if we will see any new bodies at PMA. I would certainly like to see a replacement for the A700 that I can start lusting after.

    Saw that article. It's wrong regarding speed. These lenses are small and light and so it doesn't take much to move the glass inside and thus they focus pretty fast and they're not too noisy.

    The Sony one is updated with digital coatings and has less flare and other benefits (ADI 7 pins I believe).
