In reply to:

Operator: So lets make my very personal conclusion:

Pros
o) better resolution (if you print very very big) - but not better as a 5Ds R

Cons
o) premium price tag - $2k (D750) vs. $3,2k (A7r II)
o) worst in term of noise compared to the D750
o) no native 2.8 zoom lenses
o) with f/4 zoom lenses way weaker AF system in LowLight
o) much much worse battery life
o) crippled RAW format
o) native f/4 zoom lenses much more expensive as in the CaNikon world (for example the 70-200mm) or less performant (no native 24-105 or 24-120)

Unrated
o) a bit lighter (if any - only the body not the system) at the price of a smaller body and therefor not so well usability in the field
o) better EVF in the dark for static subjects at the price with a longer black out time - so not that good for tracking subjects
o) better option for adapting of old glass - if that makes sense on a high res sensor?
Hhhmm ok Amazon sales guys - make perfect sense now why Canon and Nikon don't make a full frame mirrorless.

No, it not worse. It looks about the same, and that statement is confirmed even by others like DPR reviewers (Rishi)

D810 is the worst.

Your link doesn't prove what you are claiming. It does however show D810 is the worst.

A7RII can maintain noise level with much lower resolution D750 but has higher resolution sensor than D10 which fails miserably.

Thanks for confirmation it's the best sensor.

"worst in term of noise compared to the D750"

That's a lie

ivan1973: Its amazing to see that the 750 is still a notch better than the AR2 in term of noise.

Looks same to me

maljo@inreach.com: Raw: D810 vs A7R2 vs 5DR:
I'd pick the Nikon for sharpness, noise, resolution, color.
All good. Very subjective.

"colour is about the lens mostly."

What total nonense

Mister Joseph: A7RII, D810 , 5DSR, and guess what? Pentax K-3 II PixelShift. That's my favorite pixel-peeper comparison. IF the upcoming Pentax FF has PixelShift, it's gonna be crazy!

Ir's unknown what kind of sensor Pentax would use. I would be surprised if it's the 42 MP sensor, a it's unlikely that sensor was available to Pentax at the time they designed their camera.

Pixel shift requires the use of tripod and a subject that isn't moving. Pretty useless in practical sense.

Plus it's not something invented by Pentax. Olympus was first to implement it on consumer camera.

oselimg: 42 million pixels and 50 million pixels respectively and more than 3K price tags some people still compare the jpeg engines. Internet forums have produced incredible amount of "experts"

llumidata is just looking at wrong files. He is looking at ACR created jpegs by dpreview. If he switches to jpegs (instead of raw) he will see in camera jpegs are nowhere even close to 40 MB. They are around 13 MB

llumidata , you are looking at at raw converted to jpegs, In Camera jpegs are much smaller.

Switch to jpegs (instead of raw) and you will see jpegs are around 13 MB

"The file sizes are clearly stated next to the download links."

Yeah, and it says jpeg is 13 MB -- no where even close to 40 MB

Also, in news industry they usually shoot jpegs as there is no time for raw.

Comazzi: Sony Alpha 7R II tested with a $ 1000 lens and Canon 5DS R tested with a $ 350 lens ? What ?

dxomark sharpness scores are average of entire F-stop range (including wide open). It doesn't tell you if there is any difference at F5.6 where the studio shots are shot.

Yeah, DPR tests various lenses and posts the best lens version.

Because that's the sharpest Canon 85mm lens.

M1963: Three articles on the Sony Alpha 7R II in four days. Not quite sure what to think of it.

The pentax cameras you own lose value much quicker and much faster period. Before the camera is even delivered it already lost it's value. This same thing happened to all recent pentax cameras. In fact in six months it's half the price for pentax cameras (look up k series cameras launch price and price after six months).

I don't care if you want to buy a Sony camera. Your 10 year history is clear. You have been posting same antiSony diatible (it's consumer electronic company, bad cameras, bad lenses, it' failing, losing money, etc) for 10 years.

Now you have even accused DPR admins to be on Sony payroll just because they did lowlight AF test with fast lenses.

You are jealous and full of envy.

"Stalking a commenter"

I am not stalking him. I have seen him around for several years trolling. He has been posting the same anti-Sony distribute since he bought K10D 10 years ago. He in fact was once banned from Sony DSLR forum back in the old days (long before we had forum moderators). He is a classic Pentax troll. I remember him; I am not stalking him.

In reply to:

CaMeRa QuEsT: Didn't an editor from DP previously wrote that it was site policy not to report on rumors? Is this some kind of paid Fujifilm survey concealed as news/rumor/what have you? What is going on here?

Never heard anything like that. You are making up stuff.

DPR will not report on rumors if they are under NDA about specific future camera. If not, sure they can report rumors.

D200_4me: I just wish m4/3 as well as Fuji would get off the recycling the same old sensors game. We don't need a brand new sensor every year, but every two or three years would be a nice time-frame for improving the sensor specs (better high ISO and dynamic range is all that I'd care about...I'm happy with anything between 16 and 24MP..

X-Trans is not a sensor. It's color filter. The Fuji sensor is the same 16 MP Sony sensor, but with X-Trans color filter.

In reply to:

rgralak: Could it be that the Sigma Art lens is not the best choice for DSLR testing? I just tried repeating the test with a Nikon 28mm F1.8G on my D810 and, using group focus mode, it was able to shoot 3FPS in continuous CL-mode and about 5fps in CH mode. Focus looked good in the shots as I moved closer to my target.

This seems totally contradictory to your added clip using the D810 at the end. You may want to double check the D810 focus settings and that you had the dial knob set to CL or CH when shooting.

-Ray

Read the comments. They tested many other lenses besides Sigma.
