Dave Oddie: Seems to me this camera is all about the pro level tank-like build quality, fast AF and the 10fps.
Very useful for a pro sports photographer with the crop sensor giving more reach but outside that market it is pretty disappointing. Not many amateurs need the tank-like build and even my "old" A77 is faster at 12fps.
If you are a typical amateur who shoots a variety of subjects it doesn't seem compelling at all due to the sensor limitations, especially given the price.
Canon cameras always handle really well with well thought out ergonomics but this and tank like build are not enough anymore.
You're absolutely right.Not everyone has to drive a Ferrari. The suspension is too hard, the engine is too nervous. Drive your old Toyota with comfort for granny :)
Peter Keene: dpreview.com built its reputation for comprehensive, honest reviews when it was a small, almost one-man, shop based in the UK. Since moving to the US a few years back and greatly expanding it's staff I'm afraid it has become less and less credible. Interested in a small brand point and shoot? They've got it covered. Interested in a camera from one of the two pro systems? Go elsewhere.
The combination of dpreview and DxO (which is for me not really objective), is another negative point here. Sad
DigitalWalnut: No Sigma 120-300mm Sport?
The announcement/release dates are not important for me. One first class lens can stay at top for longer time, not only one year. This mix of different lenses types for different systems is not realy succesfful idea.
Brian in Montana: Absolutely beautiful! - 4 stars
Thanks,I like it too :)
I think, cooperation with DXO is a step back for this page. DXO's reviews of the optics, (above all ranking) are often misleading for the user and potential buyers. There are better alternatives on the market.
