jkokich: 4K has nothing to do with the size of a picture, so why compare it to other standards by showing different sizes?
I think that would have been a more realistic comparison.

sony shooter: As a Sony Shooter. This article show how hard it is to go from DSLR to a Mirrorless.
You haven't gotten into the menus to shut of image review, its obvious that you didn't spend time learning how to use focusing system such as focus locking, and most of all how to use the drive by wire focusing that is new with the Sony mirrorless cameras.
BTW it took me over a month to learn how to use Sony mirrorless coming from a Canon and Sony DSLR. its been rewarding yet difficult. Maybe you should give it a second shot after you learn the menus and functions.
Just my opinion.
If speed is important in shooting fast action, why would you want to change focus points? Wouldn't it make more sense to keep your focus point dead center?

Just what is the "Leica experience"? Someone looking at your camera and asking, "Is that a Leica??" The bottom line for any camera is one thing and one thing, only: image quality. It doesn't matter what the camera looks like, what the EVF shows, etc., the only thing that matters is the photo. These photos are just not that good.
If you don't keep up, you'll get run over.
these pictures look like a million others.
jkokich: This is just silly.
Ridgerunner22, why are you wasting your time insulting such a worthless being as myself? Surely you have better things to do with your monumental intelligence and wisdom.
Bookend! Now that's comedy!
This is just silly.
This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.
Oh, I thought it said "Trapperkeeper" and I was looking for Cartman...
He shot on an iPhone and it still cost $100,000? Publicity stunt, pure and simple.
Valen305: What a misuse of a partnership with Sony. What they should be doing is creating a new segment of compact medium format mirrorless cameras. The 50mp Sony CMOS sensor seems perfect for it. The hardest part would be creating a new line of short flange lenses for it. I wouldn't be surprised if Mamiya/phase1 beats them to market.
That is a brilliant idea! Medium format mirrorless! Valen305, for the win!
jkokich: Mirrors will go the way of film.
Wow, how insulting. My film comment was not rude, why does yours have to be?
As a filmmaker/videographer, I agree with you completely as to the disadvantages of film. Knowing I got the shot I wanted, right then, let's me sleep better. It's also far cheaper. The tech will continue to improve, so I'm sure the issues you mentioned will be resolved (pardon the pun). As for the VF debate, personally I prefer to see what the sensor is seeing, since that is what will be recorded.
Mirrors will go the way of film.
I know I'm putting my head in the lion's mouth, but here goes: Leica $4250 vs Sony A3000 $260. That's like 17 times as expensive? Is the IQ 17 times as good? That's the only question. I know the experts are going to say "yes", but, really?
jkokich: I loved my A57, and I love my A3000 even more. Great photos, great video, small, light, solid, less moving parts, for $260. Yay, Sony!
