I would never photograph sports action again. I'd videograph it.
Imagine judging someone elses wife? To the husband she may be the most beautiful angel in the world. To a judge she may just be an ugly, dull woman.
Something to think about.
AshMills: Obviously if you want to be taken seriously as a portrait photographer you need to make your subject look as unhappy as possible. Ideally get them to the very pit of human existence and then exploit them. If that doesn't work, turn up the clarity slider a bit higher.
Haha - excellent observation. I was thinking the same thing.
Aroart: FACT. Sony just pooped on the rest of the industry for video again...Yea a bit overpriced with poor battery life but thats Sony... Time to shop for the old A7s now...They just made a great camera better...wonder what the a6100 will bring to the table...Please ad a touch screen...
I'll take an amazing 12MP over an average 24MP any time.
Would be nice to see some fair reviews of all these new lenses to see how they stack up against competition.
maxnimo: Perhaps 8K screens will finally make ink prints obsolete - like what the digital camera did to chemical film processing.
Jacques, that same argument can be said for horses and washboards, yet everyone now uses cars and washing machines.
Now figure that out if you can.
100,000 prints x $45 Total cost of print = $4.5 million
100,000 prints on 1 digital screen = $1000
Perhaps 8K screens will finally make ink prints obsolete - like what the digital camera did to chemical film processing.
Albert Silver: Is there a single SLR lens capable of resolving 120MP?
I sure would like to see what they will have in September 2035.
The only problem I see is that even at f/11 most of the image will be out of focus, which is okay for portraits, not so good for landscapes.
maxnimo: People still make prints?
Seems kind of outdated and wasteful of resources considering the growing abundance of tablets and 4K TVs with superb image quality and resolution.
Cihangir - For a while I used to enjoy my huge, heavy album of beautiful 24" prints, but now it lays untouched somewhere in storage because showing my photos on a tablet or my friend's 4K TV looks way better, is much more convenient, and you can even zoom in to see every detail!
It's like going from a washboard to a washing machine. :)
Revenant - I can easily accept the fact that people have different opinions and preferences, as well as flawed logic, destructive beliefs and hostility to new ways of experiencing life.
And there are far worse things around us than someone pointing out a "different view".
Haha ... funny comments from funny people afraid of evolutionary change.
First: Hi-rez tablets and TVs will exist whether photographers use them or not - so no extra resources wasted.
Second: A single screen on your wall can display hundreds, thousands or billions of images for you to enjoy without having to print and frame every single one. Just 500 prints would cost you more than 10 screens on the walls of your home.
Third: I used to do a ton of large format printing and framing, and the sales never made up for the hassle, expenses and wasted time. I'd have made a lot more money selling digital copies at $2 a piece than prints at $150 a piece.
Fourth: If special limited edition signed prints are your thing then, hey, that's a whole separate category mostly reserved for the tiny, wealthy minority. 99.99% of humanity would be perfectly happy just viewing beautiful images on a Hi-rez screen.

A 50mm equiv.? WOW! Simply earthshaking and revolutionary. Last time I saw a new 50mm equiv. was like 500 years ago. It's about time!
The lens looks very good, about as good as the Fujinon kit zoom, except for one fatal flaw - it seems to be permanently jammed at 28 mm.
Why the heck should my camera care what Windows version my pc has?Confused, perplexed and befuddled.
My favorite all-around lens used to be a 50mm prime. I know it sounds crazy but I'm not joking ... seriously.
Think about this:
99.9% of Earthlings don't know what depth of field is.99.95% of Earthlings don't know what an F-stop is.99.99% of Earthlings don't know what dynamic range is.99.995% of Earthlings don't know what a raw file is.99.999% of Earthlings would never mess with raw files.
