I get paying for the name. I just don't understand why that lens is put out to begin with. From what I've read, people are raving over the body, but the lens lineup being produced isn't nearly as exciting.

I think for a while, there were more NEX bodies available than there were native lenses to fit them. More are out there now, but the range isn't anything I'd be getting all that excited about either. Now with the full-frame A series they have a few different lines of lenses going at once. Only from Sony. Canon has similar but their mirrorless lineup, if you can really call it that, is a half-baked, half-hearted pathetic attempt, but not surprising considering what they really want everyone buying.

The Luminous Landscape guys are at the show. Take a look at one of them with the 40-150mm f2.8 in-hand, and the 7-14mm f2.8 under glass. I wish that 7-14 was sitting next to a copy of the four-thirds 7-14mm f4 so I could get more of an idea of exactly how big it is.

I come away from those images with two things:
1). that lens is amazing, and
2). even if I had it, I couldn't dream of producing the images with it that he does.

Even with a 40-150, I would not want to be close enough to a bear to get that kind of picture Those couple of blurry image from that series? Those would be what all mine looked like as I'd be snapping as I ran....

Use those pages Steven linked to keep notes on your settings. Wow, that new firmware changed quite a bit, and I think it might be a little flaky too. I have a feeling firmware 2.1 is not far off.

This guy has some amazing BIFs. Is there anything in the firmware upgrade that would improve BIF photography or did he take a million shots for a few good ones?

Thanks for linking Sammy. And thanks for linking the settings recording sheet as well.

Any guess how much the 7-14 is going to cost?

Somewhere in the vicinity of the four-thirds model, or around $1,700 would be my guess.
