In Topic: lens choice Sony A57

Not to nit pick but just like the A-77 this camera has a mirror and mirror box which makes it a DSLR and for sure not a mirrorless camera. Agree that you have a nice choice of both macro and wide/wide-zooms from both Sony and aftermarket.

Looks like Sony will also enter the 4K market tomorrow with the announcement of the "full frame" Sony 4K A7s rumored to be a 12MP high speed camera.

Still seems to be some misunderstanding as to what should be in the new mirrorless forum and what goes in the DSLR forums. The top topic in DSLR is the Panasonic GH-4 a mirrorless camera and now a DSLR in the mirrorless forum.

You may all be interested to know that Nauticam has just announced the new housing for the Sony A-5000, you may need to wait for it a bit as it is not yet posted on the Nauticamusa site. Now on the front page of Wetpixel.

I got ride of my NEX-7 system well over two years ago, the Zeiss 50 macro is still a pre-order lens and several NEX users are just now using the Zeiss 12mm both excellent lenses I am sure. Workarounds for macro plus adapter are now in the market and most are manual focus. Add a lens like Tokina 10-17 and you now need manual zoom and focus. Just downsides compared to native lenses that are designed smaller than 35mm lenses, use smaller ports and have excellent auto-focus.
