| p.2 #4 · new Sony NEX-VG900 with M lenses? |
@briantho , I might be in the same boat if they don't have a FF NEX camera next year (at least in the rumor state).
Actually, now I've given it some more thought, and it feels like the VG900 is the perfect step up for me from the NEX-5N. I get a camera with everything the NEX-7 has, adding tilt to the EVF, adding touch to the LCD, adding alot of battery life, plus the latest tech FF sensor, the LA-EA3 adapter, and all the added video related stuff like a 5.1 mic etc.
Sure, it's alot bigger, but size has never been the reason for me to use mirrorless, instead my enjoyment has come from being able to use all sorts of legacy lenses. The VG900 with for instance a Contarex 21mm Biogon or 50mm Planar, or 45mm Contax G will still be a very compact package, considering it's full frame in a video camera form factor.
I'd like to hear from those using the VG20 regarding still photography capabilities. What are the limitations compared to using for instance a NEX-7 or A99? I know you can shoot RAW, and that all the features like exposure bracketing, self timer, focus peaking etc are available. What would I be missing using the VG900 as a still camera as opposed to an A99 or NEX-7?
