On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)
In reply to:

Infared: I REALLY like the idea of the camera. The sensor, the 5-Axis etc. It's still the lack of dedicated AF lenses that stops me. It is priced really well too.
Makes me crazy!!!! LOL!
Could the Sony A7 II please mate with my Canon 5DIII and make a Love Child that we all want so bad. LOL.

I use the A7R besides my Canon 1DX. I use all my Canon lenses and the A7R with a Metabones adapter.

A7R III? I 'm sure you mean A7R II.

M Jesper: Anyone else curious to know if the shutter is still so LOUD?

Though since it has XAVC-S i assume it also gets the electronic shutter?

hmm never noticed the shutter from my A7R is loud. For me it sounds normal.

PazinBoise: Well, when this hits the US it will be time for me to say good bye to both my 70D and my X-M1.

tkbslc, I use all my Canon lenses on my A7R with a Metabones adaptor. Fantastic.

G1Houston: Please add built-in flash and touch screen (with touch AF) to the next version of the A7, and put a bigger battery in. In terms of battery life, the Nikon D750 rated with the flash on can shoot 1200 shots ...

yes, touch screen would be great.

Not bulky at all. You must have hands like a kid. My D4 fits perfect in my hands. All the controls are in the right place and big enough for my fingers. and no, it's not heavy. I carry it all day long with my 70-200 on the cam.

Played around with some files of my D4 and D800E. It's not bad and the RAWs look very good. That's all I need, cause I do the rest in Photoshop. Never used the U-Points anyway.

In reply to:

Clueless Wanderer: The amount of time and money and cutting edge technology involved in this camera is mind boggling.

I have but one question:

Has Nikon solved the problem of the 'growing' rubber grips that plague all nikon's?

D200 and a lens had a whole new set and my D700 is on its third 'trim' with the scissors and carpet tape to hold the grip on and my 24-70mm focussing rubber grip is looking like a life saver on a cocktail stick.

..Sort it out Nikon, its beyond a joke.

I use the D4 and D800E and the D3 and D3X before. I never had any growing rubber grips.

In reply to:

bossa: Kiddies with animals have been an ol' fav' for generations. These pictures are, predominantly, set pieces that are designed to appeal to sentimental parental instincts... ..cute isn't necessarily good art. The genre of the work is reminiscent of kitsch paintings from the late 19th to early 20th century and, from my perspective, is very boring in every way.

I see it the other way around.

Great news about a CMOS Hassy.

mpgxsvcd: Serious Question. How many of you shoot Medium Format or would switch to Medium Format if the right camera body was produced?

Using Apple notebooks and workstations since 1999 and never looked back.

At the moment my workstation is an IMac with 3,4 GHz Intel Core I7 and 32 GB memory. Worth every penny.

LukeDuciel: Honestly, I do not really feel D3S and D4 is that better than D3.

D3 was a really good camera and Nikon has not delivered anything significant since then.

(D800 is rather a sensor miracle than the body itself. and for that, Sony is probably the one who owns the credit).

If my D4 drops and can't work with it on the set, Ill take my second one. As an NPS the cam will be replaced pretty fast. I don't worry much ;-)

In reply to:

thecouchguy: I wonder if they fixed the video (crappy compared to 1dx).

they fixed the crappy video a long time ago with the last firmware. since then video is very good.

Different feeling here. My D4 is a ten times better than my old D3.

JK5700: I have learned to wait for the 'S' version when buying hi-end Nikon cameras (D2xs, D3s, D300s). So having skipped the D4 as it did not offer that great an upgrade over the D3s, I am awaiting further details with great expectation.

So were the D3 owners thinking. Skipped the D3s and went directly to the D4, like me. :) Next stop D5.

In reply to:

iainlea: When i read this announcement i just get the feeling that Nikon is truly missing the big picture. Own a D4, D700, and D300 and of all the cameras Nikon hit the sweet spot with the D700 (and D3/D3S at that time). Ended up going with a D4 as the D800 just did not fit my studio/location work and workflow system as well.

I need a flexible "tool" that integrates with all my other tools todo my job as quickly and efficently as possible. Basically you capture light and convert it to binary data. That works OK. Give me 24mp, more AF points and cleaner high-ISO. All I need from the oldschool camera requirements.

What I NEED and will look closely at on my next purchase is CONNECTIVITY. I am not going to pay 5500 Euros for a body again unless you can give me multiple connectivity options AS STANDARD. Do not reinvent the wheel. Stuff a SoC running Android inside that does WLAN (802ac), Gbit port, NFC, GPS and maybe introduce a branded tablet with a set of useful apps.

Samsung are closing...

Sorry Scorpius1, but it is not true what you say. I own the D4 and D800E (both first batches) and it does NOT match the high ISO of the D4. Not at all. I will never go past 3200 with the D800E. I use it just in good light and studio controlled light. I use the D4 for almost everything.
I agree with some things iainlea mentioned.
