There's a good video example at dpreview now. It's not bad, better than canons but you can see the effect of a stills OLPF. Amazing bearing in mind the size though. A great little crash cam! Compression is terrible as expected.

There's a rumoured NEX7 and there's the NEX camcorder on Sonys blog. The more cinema type camera mocked up was estimated at $19k with PL mount adaptor. So that camcorder looking thing would be the midrange product. Probably all based on revisions of the exmor APS-C sensor.

The E type lens is a very odd decision. One aspect that all the stills and videos exhibit is pretty poor lens performance. Bad CA and just a general mushiness. I thought i was looking at a small sensor P&S not APS-C. So without decent lenses what's the point of any of this? Who's making E type lenses?

Alpha mount adaptor question

Other than losing auto focus - what other negatives are there to using alpha lenses and the adaptor?? I'm assuming you still get apeture control and metering?? would lens based stabilization still work?? I'm guessing they could add auto focus for the SSM lenses via a firmware upgrade later. Could make this a really cool line of cameras...especially the nex7

I'm hoping to give this class of cameras a chance, especially the Panasonic and PEN E-PL1 soon, along with the Sony and Samsung offerings. I'll let you know how it goes.
