Sounds pretty slow.
About f11 equivalent in large format terms.

This really defeats the purpose having a "lightweight, pocketable, and small full-frame" camera doesn't it?

Sensor size and maximum aperture will dictate lens size, especially as focal lengths increase...

If the optical performance is similar to the FE 55mm prime, I'll get it.

If it's more similar to the apparently-mixed performance of the FE 24-70 zoom, I probably won't...

So I should buy an a99 just to use with lenses like this?

Which is exactly why I'm not on the FF bandwagon for mirrorless. I went mirrorless because the lenses for my DSLR were huge. I have no desire to go back to that. The lens looks good, though and the price is fine....more competitive than I'd have expected given the prices for the primes.

This is an FE mount, so it won't fit on the a99...

Only for E and FE mount cameras.

I think Sony designed this lens as small as physically possible for a high MP sensor.
I'm wondering if with the official release of their telephoto lens, will Sony resolve the shutter vibration debacle?

Its a 70-200mm and that doesn't come in the same form factor or weight of a prime like a 55FE. Also its not like sony is selling the A7r with a fixed 70-200mm. Its an option for people that want it and willing to deal with the bulk associated.

People are going to complain no matter what

I pre-ordered it. If it arrives before my trip to Namibia in April and does suck optically or have shutter vibration issues, I'll keep it. Otherwise it goes back or the pre-order gets cancelled.

How does the size of the Oly 40-150/2.8 compare? It also looks fairly large. The Fuji 50-140/2.8 also looks nearly this large.

This Sony lens does push the boundaries for mirrorless lens size for me. That said, I never thought my Nikon 70-200 f/4 was oversized, it was actually pretty comfortable to use. And it's about the same size as this lens, if I'm not mistaken. Meanwhile, the camera itself is still much smaller than a full frame DSLR.

Well you can pickup a mint Minolta 70-210mm f/4 for under $150. Sure beats spending $1,500

The Panasonic 35-100/2.8 is equivalent to 200-600mm f/16 in large format (4x5") terms.
