    Let's just start by saying that I'm Pentax user, so not affilitations to Sony. I was quite pleased with your reviews in the past and video courses related to different technicques, however, It seems, at least to me, that your reviews are quite biased against Sony. It is little bit strange that your review of Sport Camera is based on taking photos of Pride Parade participants. Not a single photo of any sport - not counting few guys "playing" recreational tennis. Watching reviews from well known and respected Sports photographers, camera is praised for autofocus, speed, DR.....and quite different conclusions than yours. Not sure what is going on, but kind of loosing credibility with such reviews. Again, no intention to troll or be rude, just my observation.

Sharp, contrasty, cheaper than the F Mount - but it is longer, wider and heavier! So much for small and compact mirrorless!

Is it just me or are the supplied sample files completely unimpressive in terms of lens optical performance?
