    We're a load of Washer Women here. It's a complete waste of time, but FUN.
    Personally I can't see a backlit sensor (9months from prototype to production??)
    100% viewfinder unlikely in view of probable live view.
    No new Battery.
    I can't see a dual speed motor either.

    18-55 3.5-4.5 kit lens sounds interesting. Same range as Canon and Nikon, but a full stop faster on the long end.

    24-105 G sounds nice too, and if true, Sony recently dropping the 24-105 makes a lot of sense.

    I'm thinking very seriously about the 10-24, probably with a Tamron badge though to save a few bucks. Reviews sound good, and seems like a very useful range and speed.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    hmmm interesting....that black is sexy (although I can't say that I have personally seen the 70-400mm G SSM in silver .... excuse me, platinum.)

    I'm not sure I really believe the 18-55mm (I see nothing wrong with the kit lens). Why trade one crappy lens for another?

    I didn't think the 70-400 was available in black.

    It's not, but many think it should be. Or at least white.

    But Sony - like.no.other... you know how it is.

    The "platinum" color was released after this image of the lenses was produced, last year. Marketing has its stake in reality, I guess. I just wanted you all to see the proportionality of it all.

    Marketing! What a crock. No one likes the Platinum. Well, I don't.

    Well, have you seen it? Heard it wasn't that bad.

    I like Black. It's less obtrusive. How you gonna sneak a candid when you're sticking out like a Platinum thumb?
