KR doesn't like Sony anymore...
7 months ago

"I wouldn't buy one of these Sonys, I'd step up to a real Canon or Nikon DSLR for better color rendition, higher real speeds and better overall handing, for less money. Honest, I greatly prefer the less expensive Canon SL1 or Nikon D3300 over any of the Sonys. The Sonys are flashy and loaded with foolish features, while real cameras are better at doing what we really need them to do: just take the picture — and Nikon's and Canon's 18-55mm lenses are much better then the Sony equivalents.

For the same price (or a little less) than the A77 Mk II, you can get a Nikon D7100 or Canon 70D, either of which are worlds beyond anything from Sony."

How exactly are they "worlds beyond?"

No one has fully evaluated the A77II's IQ or new focus system yet. So IMO it's way too soon to really compare them to competitors anyway.

Ken Rockwell is just trolling for hits, as always.

... and nobody cares.

Rockwell shows varying degrees of idiocy all the time with stuff like this quote: '"Reflex" means a mirror that reflects the live optical lens image to an optical screen for viewing and flips out of the way to take the image...' Anyone who claims photography knowledge should understand it does not mean that at all, if based only on the existence of twin-lens reflex cameras. In photography the word reflex is simply about reflecting.

If Sony was buying advertising from KR,  or giving him gear he'd be much more open to giving them positive reviews.

I don't even go there anymore.  His recent statements about shooting JPEG and low resolution / budget camera's are just dangerous to new photographers.

Wouldn't be concerned with KR
In reply to hlecter666, 7 months ago

He is a flavor of the week type person. If he likes vanilla then that's the best flavor there ever was. Then next he likes chocolate then that's the best flavor there ever was. You get the picture. Best if he ignores you because he's a thorn in the side to nikon and canon forums.

Most of those opinions are made because they are sponsored.

Ironically, he loved the a99. And has made conflicting statements about the a7.

But if the a99 is so great, how can he turn around and say a77ii is so horrible?
They are very similar cameras apart from the sensor size.

KR.. BAAAAA HAAAAAA HAAAAAA

Sounds like KR maybe got a solid sponsorship from Canikon considering he never picked up the camera before saying this.

What real features you mean support for ALL of your mounts AF lenses unlike in the lower end Nikon 3100.

Or better Sensor DR than the Canon..

Not sure what kind of REAL photography KR is doing but let me summarize

BAAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAA

Note is front page has nothing about Sony in navigation.. his post on the a77II is the lowest of ignorant fanboy talk... there is a reason Fanboy Rockwell has not comment section on his blog that I can find..

But that didn't stop him from linking to sites where you can buy the new Sony and he gets a piece of the action from the link

Saying things like this is easy, it requires no knowledge, no evidence, no logic even no brain.

Anybody can say this to Canikon too, pointless...

No comments section either I wonder why..

Ken Rockwell seems to be a mercenary.. I wonder if Sony stopped paying a sponsorship and he is mad

KR has a "healthy" Ego and is running a business.

I would assume

A) Sony stopped buying adds

B) Sony refused to give him advanced review samples.. so he is a hurt boy now.

KR is an idiot
In reply to hlecter666, 7 months ago

KR doesn't like anything but Canon or Nikon. He knows very little about cameras and doesn't even use the cameras. He is IMO a complete joke. I refuse to read anything on his site because it is complete BS.
