qianp2k: I like this new scene better, lots of areas with more details you can compare with. Hope DPR will find time to do tests again to add all cameras currently in old lab scene with this new scene.

Hope that DPR will use the latest firmware updates when adding the older cameras.

I am hoping that DPR will use the latest available firmware updates when adding older cameras to the database.
If not, then the whole exercise of changing the studio scene will be of little value.
Will take some time to get used to.

Having two totally different and incompatible hot shoes within its current camera lineup is why Sony will always lag behind Nikon and Canon. Sad, very but true. All the great innovations and then they blow it on something basic, like a hot shoe!!!!!!!

Prognathous: It's sad to see how Sony ruined the best hot-shoe implementation and replaced it with this seemingly-standard-but-not-really pos.

Changing the hot shoe was a big mistake by Sony! A slap in the face to still image photographers.

Doesn't make sense to be willing to pay more just because of the name 'Nikon' when there are better alternatives for less money and more advanced technologies!
