Now after all the fuss I believe that there is only one decent camera for the M lenses: A7RII that is.

You can put a Wifi SD card into it, and chimp your phone...

The D500 with the F1.8 Sigma zooms is a relatively cheaper and smaller alternative to the D5 with the 24-70 and 70-210 F2.8 zooms. I would definitely think about it for journalism and weddings. (plus the usual birding and wildlife shooting, but that is with a different lens set) I would still keep a D810 handy if I had one. D500 is a DSLR so I would not compare it with mirrorless APS-C cameras: that is a different market in my perception. By the way noise of D500 is on par of D810 on the pixel level, so after downsampling the latter is still better.

If you think that the most important prerequisite of good photography is a viewfinder, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foWAs3V_lkg

Lesson from Daido Moriyama:
You can get great pictures without a viewfinder...

On article Crossing the Bridge: Canon XC10 Review (260 comments in total)

Actually, XC-10 is marketed and sold as a video camera with stills capability. And that explains everything (for me). Actually according to videographers it is not a really good VC either. In this case A7S serves better for the purpose to "crossing the bridge".

You can learn all details here: http://www.hasselblad.com/h6d. A sort of evaluation of the camera and of the MF market perspectives is here: http://blog.mingthein.com/2016/04/07/hasselblad-h6d-announcement/#more-12869. Good to know: this is a ca. 20,000-camera market.

I have seen the silliest posts ever in this thread. This camera is the high ISO king for now. Full stop.

kadardr: Modern design. Very sharp, very flat images, no micro contrast at all.

Thank you all for this fascinating discussion. Actually it would be very good and urgent to have a real life comparison of this FE GM 1.4/85mm lens with the Nikon 1.4/85mm AF-S G and the 1.2/85mm EF L lenses.

On article Samsung NX500 shown as discontinued (271 comments in total)

Big corporation CEOs tend to make impulsive and unsubstantiated decisions based on profit/loss statements alone. This is one of them. Altogether ca. 15 years of experience and striving went down the drain. Hopefully the 28 mp sensors will be built into some camera.

It can also involve storytelling or strong narrative. For that you do check out the Time Travel series of the above lady.

OK. I see now. You absolutely right. 18-35 can go FF (limited).

Tharaphita: Great news. As Nikon FX user i was searching for good pocketable camera, debating between Nikon J5 and Sony RX100III/IV and Pana LX100, Fuiji X100S.

But ill go for DL24-85 =)

RX100 is for all green shooters. Awful UI (and UX).

In reply to:

kadardr: Sigma just launched a mirrorless camera body for DSLR type lenses. Now that is possible and even looks great for me. They should launch one set with canon EF or Nikon F mount. Well if Canikon does not want to...

Me too.
