I don't get this x-trans sensor. I really wanted to like it though.
rsf3127: Is this Fuji camera twice as good as the Sony a6000 to justify that price? Almost the same as a FF body...eeek.
@TheDreamingWatchman: the only similarity between the D4 and the other cameras discussed here is that it takes pictures. FYI, the D4 camera is used by different people for different purposes.On the other hand, the a6000 and the XT1 are in the same market niche.
profus: "Another small change worth mentioning is the camera's ability to use the Auto ISO feature while in manual exposure mode. This allows you to choose a shutter speed and an aperture setting and let the camera decide on the necessary ISO. And, because the D4s has an Exposure Comp button as well as two control dials, you can apply exposure compensation so that you get your chosen image brightness, when working this way."
Is this a change? That wasn't possible on D4? It certainly works that way on Df...
I can do that with my NEX-5N...

rsf3127: Since this morning, I believe that the NEX-7 is a great buy at the current prices.
Great buy for me. I have some minolta shoe flashes laying around. I have some very nice a-mount glass (including AF Zeiss) that I use with my LA-EA2 with the NEX (so I don't need speedy AF on the sensor of the NEX). On top of that, the lenses that I use most with the NEX are the sigmas, that don't allow on sensor PDAF on the new NEXes. I like the tri-navi joystick and the build quality of the 7. Also, if you compare IQ from the 7 and the ones from pentax k-3 and the new nikons, you will see that there is nothing significant between them. Plus, I don't use lenses that have magenta shift with that camera nor do I plan to do that. That is the rationale behind my statement.

My 5N has no substitute so far.
mumintroll: I know it's not year 2013, but the best fixed lens camera is Sigma DP2 no doubt. IQ is FAR!!! better than all other fixed lens cameras on the market. All Sigmas Merrill are superior.
Don't believe? Check this photo of Prague from merrill DP3.http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1196562
The poll is for best camera and not better IQ.
And the Merrils are not that practical and versatile. But I agree they have unmatched IQ @ low ISO.
rsf3127: 580g! Better have an outstanding IQ and negligible distortion.
Distortion=barrel or pincushion. Not perspective exaggeration.

I want the Samyang 10mm 1:2.8 ED AS UMC CS.Waiting for a sharp and affordable UWA is killing me.
K50 is the best camera among the contenders of the list by a good margin.If video is a must have, I would go for the a58 instead.
rsf3127: Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.4 @ Ebay: 49 usd.Adapter: 10 usdRokkor on my NEX: priceless.
The Rokkor-X PG is indeed a very nice lens. Its transmission is due to its coatings, I assume. But it is a fast lens on my NEX and I like the bokeh. And for less than 50 bucks (you can find it for much less if you search), it is a steal of a lens!

Deleted pending purge: Dear Kimio Maki,Let me suggest that you try and open a feedback channel for the Sony camera users and see what they wish in your camera models! Then contact the more serious ones among those with other than an autobot reply, and communicate. I am sure this move would be advantageous for Sony, since majority of manufacturers mainly ignore their users, and seemingly do not look for ideas and concepts further than their marketing department.Best Regards!One long-time Sony user
I second what you just wrote. That would be a great move by Sony. If that happens and I see the results, I swear I will buy their next FF body and some Zeiss glass.
rsf3127: Between this and an A7, I would take the latter anyday. The only exception would be if I had a large inventory of Nikon glass.
And then I would be able to attach almost any lens to my camera.

Seems like an A900 with the handgrip of an a230. And probably for the price of 3 a900.
Downloaded. Tried. Uninstalled.LR is still my choice. Its NR tool is unparalleled so far.
