Spectro: if the translucent mirror flipped I would be interested.

Translucent mirror to flip where? It is a limitation in the old SLR design thats why the mirror need to flip. else it will be blocking the sensor. So if can dun flip then why you still want to flip?

Mike604: I was really looking forward to Canon's mirror-less camera but after seeing these photos, I am a bit disappointed.

If other camera with the same settings can give better quality then there is conclusion.

What do I know: Wake me up the day EVF gets as good or Better than a good 100% OVF

If you like OVF so much then you should go back to use film. Film is like OVF and Digital is like EVF. So why you wanna use OVF with Digital? Whatever you can say about OVF applies well to the film, whatever you talk about for EVF applies for our DSLR.

Fotogeneticist: Until an EVF has the same refresh rate and dynamic range that matches my eye, it will never replace OVFs for me. What does an EVF give me except for battery drain and shadows you can't see into? And to the poster that said an EVF needs 2MP to out-resolve an OVF, if you out resolve what your eye can see anyways, what good would that do?

when you see the OVF and your photo on the LCD - are they the same? when you see the EVF and your photo on the LCD - they the same? Honestly, the VF that can show the same thing as the Photo should be better as it tells you what you will get before you shoot.

gedoxey: Another reason I enjoy a camera that does not have a moving mirror is a quiet shutter mechanism like is present with the Sony a57 and a77. I assume this will be true for the a99 as well. I was at a wedding the other night and the photographer was shooting away during the ceremony with his Nikon and his shutter noise was annoying even 75' away. When I shoot at a wedding or a formal indoor concert I can take pictures any time I want without disturbing the ceremony or performance. Before using a camera with a traditional moving mirror I had to wait until the music or singing was loud enough to not disturb the performance. I won't use a camera with that noisy mirror slap in these situations. My next purchase will be Nex 6. And maybe I'll make the jump to the FF SLT. Perhaps it won't be too long before even the Sony SLT cameras will be mirrorless too.

gasdive... you lose the PDAF...

This camera is really perfect. not for extreme usage but perfect for my daily shot.

Sony is winning. DSLR are everywhere today and most of the people who holds a DSLR are using kit lens. This is a perfect camera for them.

Still there is one major flaw... it is too expensive.

nalex: 24MP full-frame CMOS Sensor with on-chip phase detection AF
Fixed-mirror design SLT

How dumb is it? Sony put phase detectors ON SENSOR and put semi-transparent mirror IN FRONT OF IT.
Why not mirrorless then?

this is first time with dual PDAF. we need to try it out.

This is the end.

This is a very good attempt. If you see it as a camera (with a phone feature) then dslr is better but if you see it as a phone (with a camera feature) then it may just be the best.

cgarrard: Ugh, when are manufacturers going to stick a small evf in the upper left corner of one of these enthusiast compacts? (See nikon p60 if you need an idea it can be done). This camera with a compact evf with decent magnification and resolution would jump its way into my bag. No viewfinder, sorry Nikon just not for me.


i dun get it... why is VF so important? There is a big screen for you to see behind so why still need a VF?

Yiotis: I stopped wasting my time trying to understand their so called new technology(This go for every manufacturer). Do you even realize with what kind of info you are bombarding us?

I want pictures not blah blah.

I am a part time software programmer. This is what I really hate most. Many people do not care about the technology and only wanted better output. It is on that technology advanced then end result can improve. Technology takes a small step every time so it may or may not give you any visible results, however it is nevertheless.. a stepping stone for the next great advancement. So please learn to appreciate what DP has presented to you.

Camediadude: Add my vote to: no evf, never going to buy it

actually, I am quiting ovf to the big big big lcd screen. I really cant find any reason to continue to use OVF or EVF! I just do not understand, what is the thing about EVF/OVF that some pro like it so much.

FTW: I have used that camera for a short moment and to me the picture and video quality is amazing. The main problem is the absence of outer controls since almost everything is made by menu. For the P&S user this is no problem, he will shoot in auto mode or P mode only. Being an ancient in the field and using the NEX-7 with ease, this camera is a bit unusual for me, not enough controls. And this is the same for testers. One should have a tester for that objects who only tests P&S material, an adept to a dslr and button monument will always criticize the absence of that gadgets. At least, all this mirrorless cameras have one feature in their setup that Nikon does not have found necessary to include in the menu of their low end dslr's like the D3100-3200 series, down to the D40 and this feature is to shoot without lens attached, a feature that would allow good hybrid lenses to be used with adapters in that systems.

NEX is quite friendly. Try P A or S. Simple interface and high IQ

VideoSam: Panasonic's CDAF has come a long way since the G1. From what I gather, and after taking over 80,000 photos with my GH2, the G5 looks even faster than the flagship GH2. Makes me excited for the GH3 around the corner!

G3 AF is super fast.
Some of the compact can AF faster due to a smaller lens. Smaller lens is due to smaller sensor. But this smaller sensor in G3 as compared to 650D does not lose out very much on image quality.

So what is this about Bigger DSLR?

chrisnfolsom: This is bizarre - who takes pictures with an slr by pressing on the screen on the back of the camera?
1. The experience would be better looking through the viewfinder.
2. With low light and exposure the mirror will be down longer creating the illusion of speed - this exposure time is very slow - please test this in the sunlight.
3. We need to see if the actual focusing is better for the phase detection. Some final prints from each with a very shallow lens would let us know much more.
4. Please test this with moving objects in movie mode - moving at different speeds in different directions - pausing at different speeds to test overshoot - that would be interesting - as well as their vibration control.

Interesting though - DPR should include some movies of the camera's in actions to put some actual real world association to all those numbers that are shown - I love the numbers personally, bit it is hard to actually know what they all mean - thanks for all the hard work!

If I have a G5 and I want to know if 650D is better then clearly -- G5 is better.

I am not a G5 owner or supporter but clearly I can say that G5 can take more shots in the same given period of time compared to 650D

actually i really wonder who uses these...???

Maybe can consider gigapan for hi-resolution images...

D800 is 36mps and Leaf Credo 80 is 80mps... the jump is not really big but leaf lose a lot of agility.
