  • What does brand new have to do with anything?

    -no 4K video
    -slower autofocus and performance
    -short and less useful lens

    One can always buy an ND filter, but you can't add 4K, speed up autofocus,...

  • Sony needs to stop shunning development of APS lenses in favor of full frame lenses.  Their full frame lenses have a bad habit of costing a lot of money.   Maybe that is the plan.
  • Zooms over primes, flash options, bigger solid camera, more compliments, better lenses, better view finder, a serious camera, on and on. Though true more serious professionals prefer Nikon and ...
  • I see motion blur. 1/15th shutter speed explains it. Exposure is different too.
  • Can you post the lens size comaprison between the 2? Zooms like the 14-140 are soft on the very telephoto end. How does it compare at 100mm?
  • Replied in what f-stop?
    That thing in the background looks in focus to me in many shots.  What was the f-stop used?  A subject that big should make this easier.  Do you think a DSLR would have a higher hit rate?
  • The Sigma lens may not work with the A6000 PDAF focusing at all - CDAF should work.  I just read some of the older Sony lenses don't work either.   When I tried the A6000 it slowed down in low ...
  • But you saw the example and you replied to the post.  You chopped the link off but I am sure you saw it. I gave an example.  Go back and look.  I found it to be more challenging than any I have ...
  • Since they left out Nikon and m43 along with the cameralabs finding I can only say the answer to the question asked is no. The Nikon 1 went through this 2 or so years ago, Olympus last year, and ...
  • But Cameralabs was not referring to video. Here is the A6000 statement again for you. "But it's certainly not the fastest mirrorless camera of any format. I tested the A6000 alongside the most ...
  • The A6000 did not do well at all here.  The depth of field gave it a large advantage and it missed on about every shot.  The subject taking up most of the frame should have made it easy too ...
  • This is why I listed what the review sites like cameralabs review found found. This is what he said again. "But it's certainly not the fastest mirrorless camera of any format. I tested the A6000 ...
  • At the store the rep and I thought the D5300 was faster than the A6000 and the GH4 even faster still.  The video review I linked to said the GH4 was very fast at -2EV or -4EV, so is that what you ...
  • The A6000 is quick in outside, but "sub-par" inside. This can't be the lens's fault - we know it can be fast. My total unsupported speculation is PDAF pixels do not work well in lower light and ...
  • When my local camera store finally had an A6000 in we compared it to the Nikon DSLR I was also looking at. In the store the Nikon was slightly faster to focus. But then the guy brought out a GH4 ...
  • I am about to buy a D5300.  But first I was wondering how good the Nikon 1 is at C-AF at night in a high school stadium or in a gym.  Can someone point me to some examples?
  • I found this earlier today.  The blogger is awful at panning and following his dog and there are many pictures of grass close-up with no dog.  He said this is with an f2.8 lens telephotzoom which ...
  • Replied in I must agree
    I have been to many night football, soccer, lacrosse, and track meets where photographers were using continuous auto focus.  Lighting is nothing compared to bright day light.  In a gym it is even ...
  • Replied in I must agree
    I see many of these tests in bright sunlight and with larger depth of fields.  Sometimes they use a very short focal length.  Never anything at night.  The number of accurately focused pictures ...
