I didn't mean to be off-topic. I thought they were going to post videos from other manufacturers. I might have been misled, but they did say that. I doubt anyone can find any Sony only coverage of PMA, but if anyone does, please post.
I also noticed the concept and prototype statements, but I hope its concept and prototype you can pick up and use. If its still behind glass (which means no specs!), then its probably Photokina before we see something and then probably December before you can buy anything.
But, to be fair, very few of us actually expected the A7xx at PMA, since all previous reports (up to last week) said that only the new mirrorless system would be on display. So, if we see anything, then that is probably better than what we had hoped (since we hoped for nothing
). The posting did sound very optimistic though (they didn't try to play down its presence, which would be the more logical thing to do if you didn't have anything worth showing), and it seems as though they are alluding to a definitive product replacement, so we might see a functional camera.
As for the lenses, I can't imagine how much those things are gonna cost
, but its a step in the right direction!
Any chance at coming back to the Alpha mount?
Definitely Off-Topic (?): Rumuors have it that the D900 will be out as the replacement for the D700. Is Nikon going to steal Sony's thunder if they make such a big announcement? That's probably one of the worse things that could happen, because Sony needs some solid attention from the DSLR press community, especially if the A7xx doesn't turn out to be all that great when compared to something like the 7D.
