Digitalis32: AF with a Leica lens? BLASPHEMY! BURN the AF loving heathens where they stand! and scatter their ashes to the winds!

when chuck norris focuses his leica, the entire universe will bend until proper focus is achieved.

villagranvicent: Remember the Contax AX?? autofocuses by changing the lens-to-film distance. I wonder why nobody else followed that route.

because it requires on-sensor PDAF points which was not available until recently

Sir Nick of High Point: This seems brilliant, and in hind-sight should have been obvious, given the way rangefinder lenses couple to the body. I'm surprised Leica didn't think of it first. Or perhaps they did, and there is some fundamental issue with the concept that I'm not seeing. Perhaps it's hazardous to the lens?

it requires on-sensor PDAF which is fairly new

zamorac: TLDR after the first sentence. "Forever lenses" from a company that changed three lens mounts in the fast five years? Oh wow!

I am talking about full-frame.

Indeed. Coming from Sony, this statement is utter mockery! Many an A-mount user would have loved to use their A-mount lenses forever, now they cannot even be sure if there ever will be a new camera with A-mount again. And don't tell me about adapters, this is just not the same.

The statement "we want to make lenses that can be used forever" sounds a bit funny coming from Sony, who is just in the process of abandoning the A-mount and therefore preventing a huge number of existing lenses to be used on future cameras.

ekaton: Size and weight advantage of mirrorless, where did you go?

which other 70-200 2.8 lens has a length (not focal length) of only 200mm?

Eugene232: it is smart idea.
18% prices increase means Nikon will make 18% increase in profit.

In reply to:

DualSystemGuy: One correction to the video section - you mention 4K is limited to 3 minutes, but that isn't a Nikon limitation, it's a limit of the FAT32 formatting standard that limits individual file size to a maximum of 4GB.

Also, video time is not limited when using an external recorder, which I imagine any serious videographer would have.

Both are very important caveats when presenting the limitations as disadvantages.

So why can the D500 record 30 minutes then?

"Achieves focus in live view photography -> Automatic setting of adjustment value with a few button operations"

I have proposed such a feature years ago.

Canon. They'll still had plenty of 22MP sensors.

Steve in Scotland: This does go on the wishlist but contrast detect only on the sensor in live view will get found out again in the reviews

You need a mirrorless for that.

In reply to:

Horshack: The mix of XQD and SD is curious. The XQD slot will be multiple of times faster, which means you wont have a dual-card backup solution that will keep up with the camera at max FPS/buffer depth. I suppose that doesn't matter with a 200-shot raw buffer but in that case why even include the XQD to begin with?

@androole, it will matter to you if you find out your XQD card is broken and the copies taken from there onto the SD card are worthless.

Joe Ogiba: The Panasonic GH5 should be coming in 2016 so that would be a great EVF for it.

We'll only see this panel in high-end cameras for a while.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2125 comments in total)
In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: An interesting thing to do is go to your local camera shop - ask to handle the A7r II and try it out. Then ask to see the Nikon D750 and try that out. In that order.

Why would you want the poor salesperson to unbox the A7rii twice? Start with the D750, move to the A7rii and you will stick with it anyway.

Mssimo: Let me translate Nikon's "announcement" to plain English: "Nikon asks users to be patient and stop going to Sony"

HowaboutRAW, you seem to miss quite a few things. See above.
