funny how much ranting about the lossy compression...
Well, the folks complaining about it should just grab the G7x and enjoy the mud it produces while shooting wide :)

josseee: "significant improvements in image quality" does this mean the optical formula was changed? I doubt that, since the elements info looks the same as previous version, the length and weight also looks more or less the same (VII seems to be 2 grams lighter) Anyway, since my old 24-70 is already deadly sharp as it is and my only concern about "not so great" bokeh in some situations seems to be unresolved, I will skip this one...
Still good to see that sony is giving something to the A mount crowd

ther might be an improvement, but my guess is that its noticable in the flaring/ghosting department, not in the way the bokeh is rendered

josseee: pity that those ones that don't care about the IBIS have to stand the extra weight caused by it...
Anyway, for me personally the only thing that the original A7 was missing, is the A6000 style AF

ijustloveshooting...you stated it as some kind of an "absolute truth". Stating "A7ii is a huge leap over A7...PERIOD" is very absolutistic my friend. Not everybody agrees to your statements, actually many seems to disagree

ijustloveshooting, do you realize that I clearly stated my personal opinion? Why do you think that the things you consider important are a must for everyone?

In reply to:

Horshack: Regarding the review comments "We also found the a7 II to have 1-2 stops worse ISO performance than an a7S or D750", here is a High ISO comparison I did between the A7, A7s, A7r, and Nikon Df, keeping in mind that the review indicates the A7II has the same noise performance as the A7 and that the D750 has slightly more noise than a Df:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54031579

yep, seeing the "1-2 stops difference" exaggeration made me giggle a bit... well, whatever...
anyway I tend to agree on the dials ranting..theres a big step back in the dial placement for me personally

wow...a review one month after camera has been announced! Didnt see this fast response from dpreview in ages...Certainly would be nice if they could be so quick with all cameras

In reply to:

Randy Veeman: I am a bit shocked by the prices. My 85mm F/1.4 was $750. I am sure the argument is the Zeiss name and quality, but a lot of potential buyers are going to be shut out. These do very little for the NEX owners looking for $300-$800 lenses with wider apertures.

apsc 85/1.4 is a biiit different from FF 35/1.4
how can you compare those?

In reply to:

aftab: I am sure this is a very capable camera and your video is testament to that. I would have loved to see how it performed with smaller moving subjects such as BIF. I was in Galapagos few months ago and was shooting with FZ1000 and 5DIII. I did much better for BIF with both of my cameras than my friend did with a6000. I don't mean to say that my experience is the final word on these cameras.
May not be relevant here, but I find it interesting that Sony market share in Japan for mirrorless has fallen from over 40% to less than 30% in 2014.

the "fact" that you did better with the FZ1000 indicates that the problem might have been in your friends skills rather than his A6000 :)

That was quick ;)

those who had it already managed to sell it, so the "I own it" is expected to rise any minute :D

In reply to:

Mirrorlessplease: The lens focal lengths I am interested in are 1.4 50mm, 1.4 35mm, 1.4 24mm, 2.8, 17mm, 1.4 85mm, 2.8 100mm macro 1:1. Tilt shift 24/17mm. These can all be manual focused if it means they're as small as leica lenses. I want as small as possible lenses I can have for street photography. I know this is asking for a lot but there's no harm in mentioning what I'd like! Please don't suggest voigtlander, I hate the bokeh on those

well then look into voigtlander/zeiss ZM mount offerings...

In reply to:

DavidNJ100: The only review I've read of the A7 II (on Cinema 5D) was less than impressive.

The Nikon vote may be suffering because it is split. The D810 has an amazing sensor. The D750 is arguably the best value and fits nearly all the high end features (except 1/8000 sec shutter and 1/250 flash sync) in best high end DSLR chassis. What we need is the D820...the D810 sensor in a D750 body. With 4k video.

The Sony A7s was game changing. Many cinematographers need to keep one in their kit just to handle low light circumstances. Now that 4k video recorders are becoming available that can explode. The next step up is video RAW recording which costs at least 3x as much, and usually 4x-5x as much.

That said all of these will pale compared to 2016's or 2017's cameras: 42Mp with 4k video from binning, 4:2:2 10-bit video out, EVF or maybe even enhanced OVF/EVF switchable viewfinder, flip screens, WiFi, etc.

really? cause I dont see ANY review on the A7 II @ cinema 5D.
Perhaps you could provide us with a link? (my guess is that you confused A7 with A77 :D )
However, before posting such an ignorant-smelly post, you should try to google out some real reviews, Im sure youll find something ;) Just an example follows here...
