Just Ed: Owned a D600 and now have two 6D's and also use a 5D mkiii. The 6D is quite uderrated. In my experience it focuses far better than Nik's D600 particularily in low light. My point is more focus points does not equal a better focusing system. I recently took a frame of a luminous flashlight in a dark room using autofocus and exposure and the 6D did quite well. Yesterday took pics of a friend and her foster 9 month old hyper energy pointer. Not a single frame was out of focus on the 6D. Now, had I taken the 5D mkiii with me that would have been my go to. But Canon's under rated ff can be had refurbed for under a thousand bucks and will probably be cheaper if they replace it next Spring. It is an image taking machine which adds wifi and gps (use the latter often for travel and events). All my glass is L glass so that helps overall performance. 24-70L, 70-200 f/4 L and also use 100-400 mkii L..
Jim Forever: Really surprised to not see Nikon D610 included in the winners!!! The best affordable FF at the price of an APS-C!!!! Simply the best IQ which beats canon/Fuji etc high end FF/APS-C cams!! Amazing low light performance excellent lens selection. Wonder how Samsung has even featured here?:)
I see it there.

Shiranai: What I dislike in Sony is, that you're basically paying a huge 3.2K for a camera that will be replaced in just 1 year. Same as the R II replaced the R in roughly 1 year. That would totally annoy me if I bought a flagship which is rendered old after such short time.
With Canon, Nikon and all the others you have at least around 3 years till they replace their (flagship) models.I mean take the 5DMk2 (2009) and the 5DMk3 which came 2012, 3 years later. And we're still waiting for a Mk4.
And I think this is better, because you don't want to pay a sh*tload of money for something that ages as fast as your smartphone.
@averageuser, I think you made Shiranai's point for him. All those highly rated cams were replaced in short order to correct shortcomings. This Sony is a fine camera, but it seems to be a slouch for action photography like BiFs. So will Sony replace it in a year with ine that writes faster to the card, has faster focus and no evf blackout....yes probably.
Mad About Macro: Canon focus on price points so much that they dumb down cameras. Canon outsold Nikon for years because they gave more features in their cameras. My 6D has a near useless autofocus system because they based it on the 60D which had already been dumbed down from the 50D.
No wonder the 6D didn't sell the way they'd hoped. What's worse is they've failed to understand why or they'd have released a 6D2 by now with a fold out screen and the same focus system as the 5D3 or at least 5D2. One Cross Point is a joke and it's virtually the only one I can rely on.
No wonder Nikon stepped in when Canon dropped the ball.
Wow, something must be wrong with you 6D, both of mine work fine. Since you can get a Canon refurb body for 934 bucks it is one heck of a body.
Roland Karlsson: Yes, it is nice to be able to use old lenses. The shorter registration distance plus the avilability of adapters make e.g. a FF Sony mirrorlless camera able to use almost all lenses on the market. So, in a sense, it is right.
But, you lose some.
You lose auto focus and automatic closing of aperture. Sure, as it has an EVF, you can work with the lens aperture closed. Sure, with focus peeking you will make manual focusing easier. I have never use the Sony focus peeking, but I have a hard time using my Pentax focus peeking though. It is quite hard to get that exact focusing. It seems sharp almost everywhere.
RK, for a monthly donation KR will answer all your questions. :-)
It looks HUGE! Am wondering if Leica is targeting the studio market? I do like that really nice top lcd display and the 24-90 is a great focal range....but again BIG in size.
KAMBIC: No Sony E mount? I wonder if it's due to the claimed issues with Fast WA glass on short flange? Sigma could have just made the same lens with a longer barrel, essentially adding the adapter in the design. Wonder why they didn't.
KAMBIC, maybe they did but didn't like the results.
ShoppingBoy: I am so gonna get this!!!!
RX1R II + iPad Pro = Cooooooool
Pay attention and stop trying to thr d cr-p.
B-S if you don't like what someone has to say, move on. Didn'YOU learn that yet?
If it handles coma well, it will be an interesting lens.
B-S, you started the negative remarks. Don't get upset if someone calls you out for it.
B-S, nuf said!
Do all the time and don't have to read absured comments to decide what works. Hint,mget over yoursel!
We already own our expensive toys BigLoser
Eric Glam: I'd like to express my thoughts on this new camera, based on specs alone:1. Shutter limited to 1/4000 sec. They could easily offer 1/8000 sec.2. Still no optical zoom. Not even x1.5. And no, cropping won't get you the same quality you'd achieve with optical zoom.3. No touch-screen, so no touch-focus and no touch-shutter and no quick menu adjustments.4. $3300 USD!! insane.5. Battery life is pathetic.6. Video limited to 1080p60. Bitrate limited to 50Mbps. In this day & age? really??7. No weather sealing. Why not?8. EVF with XGA resolution. Nice to have the EVF, but why limited to XGA (1024 x 768)? That's less than 1MP. I would have liked to see an EVF with 1.92MP (1600x1200) which can refresh at 120Hz. 9. Only 25 Contrast-detect AF points. They should at least double that.10. 42MP is way too much. 33MP would have been more welcome. larger pixels, smaller files, faster writes to card, better low-light high ISO shots.
I think I said enough.
Eric, Imagree the evf specs are so ten years ago.
I appreciate that you are matching it with the iPad Pro....good choice!
The demo of the af issues in sports photography was quite disappointing.
Boss of Sony: What is the point of a lens without AF in this day and age? AF is one of the functions most photographers need more than any other.
Rob, bif stand for bird in flight. It takes a good fast af to keep up and mf even with focus peaking on a mirrorless system would be a total no go.
