If you want to get an idea about the new FE lens size here is a comparison between the Zeiss 16-35mm, Sony 28-135mm, Loxia 35mm and Loxia 50mm lenses. The Loxia is clearly well balanced on the A7 while the Powerzoom…well..don’t think you are going to use that on your A7 or not?

What you may have missed: Canon copied the RX100 :)

The last couple of years Canon proved tho have a very conservative approach on the digital camera market. And the best they can do now is to copy the best ideas 🙂

Latest example is their newly announced RX100 clone, the Canon G7x (specs here at Amazon). The Canon is cheaper but it doesn’t come with a built-in EVF (that alone makes up for most of the price difference). A good point for the Canon is that it has a wider zoom range (24-100mm). Well at least we have some competition and maybe Sony will lower the price of the RX100m3.
