As you have noticed many manufacturers showed lens prototypes but didn't share any info on pricing. Well here are some "rumored" prices captured in "unofficial" talks with Sony and Voigtlander managers:

1) SystemKameraForum writes the new 10,5mm f/0.95 MFT lens will be priced at around 1300 Euro.

2) VeryBigLobo claims to know the new FE lens prices:
- 28mm f/2.0 G should cost 499 Euro (February shipment)
- 35mm f/1.4 Zeiss should cost 1399 Euro (March shipment)
- 90mm f/2.8 G macro should cost 999 Euro (March shipment)
- 24-240mm f/3.5-6.4 should cost 1099 Euro (March shipment)
- both converters should cost 229 Euro each (March shipment)

We still don't know what the Samsung 300mm, The Olympus 300mm and the Fuji 140-400mm could cost...

    "Leica M, Zeiss ZM or Voigtländer LTM or M-Mount lenses" - does they have AF? Doesn't AF need place?

    Those are retrofocal designs for DSLRs which have to be bigger than mirrorless designs since they need to be constructed as a longer focal length lens plus a focal reducer component, because of the larger flange back distance. For a fair compariso...

    Well I'm not sure they are any bigger, however they're not touting themselves as compact systems.

    Why isn't Voigtlander releasing a f2.8 like this

SonyAlphaRumors leaked the first image of the 1350 Euro expensive Zeiss 16-35mm f/4.0 OSS FE lens. This is one of the three FE lenses that Sony promised to announce at Photokina:

The other two lenses will be a G macro (90mm?) and a Fast Zeiss prime lens (85mm f/1.4?).

    It looks clunky with a phone or tablet, but future-wise, could y'all imagine using this with a google-glass-like viewfinder? I think it would be awesome. They would just have to figure out controls while lacking a touchscreen. Maybe a fancy round ...

    Well I guess that if Sony built it, it means that the previous ones did (surprisingly !!!) sell well !

    you know who needs this? People who hold up their big ipad at an event to use it's built in camera. They should use this thing on a monopod instead and just monitor on their iPad.

    Thanks, that all makes sense. However, shouldn't there be room for large enough exit pupil? When you look at APS-C mounts, M43 etc. the mount diameter is quite bigger than the sensor diagonal which I imagine allows for such pupil, covering quite a...

    Wide angle lenses should be easier to design for mirrorless, actually. Short focal lengths are especially challenging on systems where the flange distance is greater than the focal length. This is true of most wide angle DSLR lenses, especially on...

    What about wide angle primes? Doesn't the sensor which is tightly cramped into the mount represent an obstacle for such lens designs? There doesn't seem to be much leeway and the light should hit digital sensors more or less perpendicularly (unles...

Selfie madness is spreading all over the world and Sony just specialized to fulfill those absurd needs :)

After the KW1 they will announce the QX30 camera. The QX30 is a 30x xoom camera. Mental how people will use it to take selfies...I know...but I bet they will sell ton of this stuff!
