Go Back   Rangefinderforum.com > Non Rangefinder Cameras > CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - > Sony NEX / Full Frame Alpha non DSLR Cameras

Sony NEX / Full Frame Alpha non DSLR Cameras Sony does a lot of things well. Naming their cameras so the nomenclature makes sense is not one of them. The NEX series has now become the Alpha NEX series, not to be confused with their Alpha DSLRs. Huh ? IS the person who misnamed the Leica M10 the Leica M240 now working for Sony? The new full frame Alpha 7/7r are incredibly successful. I wonder how long it will take the other manufacturers to make their version of the 7/7r full frame cameras.

Now if someone would make it so you can insert a central gradient at the aperture, then you could have bokeh like the Sony STF. (I suspect it's patented anyway...)

I just find it funny that they make this lens and a $4,000 M mount lens. Something tells me that people will regret buying a $4000 lens from SLR Magic.

Funny that you mentioned bokeh as the most important element ... this is the same company that is marketing the $4000 50mm T/0.95 lens that people were going crazy over on another gear centric photo forum.

They should maybe sell these toy lenses under a different label.

Haha I am looking forward to this. But Steve Huff will still rate it as the best lens.

I saw that Araakii... but he seems to be in tight with SLR Magic. I'm skeptical. $4,000 gets you a very nice Leica brand lens (not that I'd ever buy a $4000 lens).

I wonder when museums and galleries will start buying/selling photos that have bokeh as its primary subject matter?

They have paintings of solid color, so anything is possible as far as I'm concerned. :-)

I think bokeh is often important and sometimes interesting in its own right, but no it's not the main criteria of a good photo IMO.

I find it difficult to believe that any gallery or dealer would compromise their morels just to make money ...

This is BOKEH-licious!! Here's hoping they add an aperture shaped like a question mark. One shaped like a hand with the middle finger raised would also undoubtedly be a huger seller. :-)
