The Sony E-mount system has matured over the past few years and Sony has chosen to retire the NEX branding and consolidate all of its interchangeable lens cameras under the Alpha brand name with a designation only of whether they are A-mount or E-mount cameras.
The A-mount cameras are more traditional DSLR cameras, currently comprised of cameras using Sony translucent mirror technology. The E-mount cameras are mirrorless cameras and are a generally more compact design.
The Sony A7R and A7 mirrorless cameras are the culmination of the NEX system, which brought about the E-mount. With the new A7 line we finally have affordable, full frame cameras. [click to continue…]
B&H has the full frame Canon 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS lens for $1999 (reg. $2499). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Additionally, B&H has the Canon 6D body for only $1749 (reg. $1899). However, you should probably get the kit even if you already have the lens and just sell it. You’re certain to make better than $250 on it. You can find the body only here at B&H Photo.
Canon EF 16-35mm Lens and Canon EF-S 10-22mm Lens

The new Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G ED lens announced at CES 2014 is now in stock and shipping at B&H. The new lens runs $600 and is compatible with the image circle on Nikon’s full frame cameras. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Pentax posted a new K-mount lens line up that shows a roadmap for upcoming lenses with a spot for a new 70-200mm zoom lens. Presumably, this would be a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, which is currently not covered in Pentax’s digital lens lineup. Of course, the DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED lens covers this gap because all of Pentax’s DSLRs are APS-C camera.
Stretching the logic a bit further forces us to wonder whether or not a 70-200mm lens in the roadmap means that a Pentax full frame camera might finally make its way to market.
