Hmm....Sony cameras have in-body stabilization, yet they're going to make a stabilized lens?
because the body cannot contain such awesomeness

To get 1.4 @ 200mm, you'd need a aperture nearly 6 inches in diameter. This picture just doesn't match the physics. Looks more like somebody playing with a CG modeler...

This is fantastic!! Sure the first few that go on sale may be a bit soft, but this is a big step forward in lens development. Once a few other companies start developing this lens, the quality and size will improve.

The best alternative is 80-200mm f/2.8, but if you stop down this new lens 2 stops, the image quiality will probably be just as good, if not alot sharper, seeing as the f/2.8 is wide open. And then if necessary you can open up 2 more stops if you really need that extra speed.

Bloddy hell, reading it abit, it's ruddy full frame!!

Anyway, I don't see why everyone's getting in such a fuss over it's size, it's only 1kg. All top end proffesional zoom lenses with fixed apeture are always very big. How many of you are really gonna be getting this, if you are, you are probably a proffesional, who doesn't mind going a bit out of your way using heavy gear to get the results you want. Pros can easily carry over 10kg of equiptment.

I'm not entirely sure, I think someone has just photo shopped the f numbers on the lens, but the reflections of soft boxes indicate to me that the lens is physically real. with CGI imaging usually if someone has just thrown in the light sources, which is renderer dependant you typically don't see the light sources. you just see the light they cast and the objects secularity.
