@Barney Britton / dpreviewers,
It is super zoom. So when you review, please, please, please post photos of comparison at tele end.
Even you can take & post photos such as moon at 400mm in both FZ1000, RX-III and at 600mm how RX-III, so all of the readers can feel it.
The studio scene hardly displays the real life difference. [ Though it is excellent choice for scientific reviewing and statistically accurate relevant ]
jaykumarr: Thou Shalt Do Unto Panasonic as Panasonic did unto you - Sony Marketing
Sony marketing must have found out that, People chose 200mm longer reach FZ1000 over RXII. So with with RX-IIISony is doing the same 200mm longer over FZ1000.
@stephen, I did not say a word about video in my post. If panasonic reads only inner sector position read out, that will make bokeh less + some other issues. Sony can in future update firmware making this kind of inner sector read and extend the zoom on the other hand.
phazelag: I wonder where all the arm chair lens engineers who have repeatedly told us what cannot be done will hide now?
@phazelag,Those arm chair engineers need not hide until the below is proven:"Sony RX-III output is close/equal/comparable to Pani FZ1000 from 25mm to 400mm"If the photo quality is significantly less, then arm chair engineers win, as the extra 200 mm trades off detail.

I like the photos.. a nice man!!... I thought one need to dress like Afghan woman to escape from escape from bee stings. He is quite open!!
one of the best photos i have seen.. really punchy colors with gentle background. I was disappointed the photo size is too small to see fine details of feather.
very beautiful : http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=nikon_d5&attr13_1=nikon_d4s&attr13_2=canon_eos1dx&attr13_3=sony_a7sii&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=3276800&attr16_1=409600&attr16_2=204800&attr16_3=409600&attr171_2=off&attr171_3=off&normalization=full&widget=1&x=-0.0030276816608996904&y=-0.0014892443463871783
jaykumarr: Is there anyway to use this with no Adobe photoshop or any other software?
For example, if I have a new Mac with factory setup, with no software, how I can use this suite?
thanks for helping out my ignorance.
Macromind: Total waste of time. No indication as to how to import pictures. "Help" useless.Communication as to use not available. My trial is over! CS6 and NX are still AOK with me.
Sonyshine,that is very harsh. ignorance is what all of the world have. The ignorance about history, cultures, truth, food , meat or more serious than using little software you are pointing out.

Jonathan F/2: The D7200 is even more impressive. At this rate of improvement, the D500 should be a DR and high ISO beast next to Canon and the rest of the APS-C competition. Fuji being a close 2nd place. No doubt in the mirrorless arena Fuji is top dog for APS-C!
@EDWARD,What ever you wrote is NA for the those who you think as recipients. Your writings are applicable to you. You have to lol at yourself and mock yourself.
@EDWARD 6D is very unclean very noisy in one to one comparison with D7200 . 6D is noisier than 80D too. While 80D is superb improvement, it looses against D7200 by some margin.
Sean65: Interesting results when you select the Olympus M5ii to compare.
That is because you see +0EV comparison in olympus, while canon is set to +5EV. Set both to same.
jaykumarr: Engineering Manager: "we fixed the problem that was slowing down the focus by 50%"Marketing Manager: "Our fix made focus faster by 50%" . So buy dock from us.
I know 33% failure fix is 50% improvement. But when you want other people to laugh, we say jokes, not mathematically correct statements, that would take 2 seconds thinking time before lol.
About returning docker after using, I thought we South Asians only do that. I understand it is borderless phenomena.
pshummer: AF speed of my Sigma 150-600 C has substantially improved after I installed the new firmware update by a Sigma dock. Nikon/Canon should follow the Sigma's idea. The Sigma dock is such a huge time saver.
Was yours slow previously?

jaykumarr: A very good detailed review indeed.
I have a doubt. Tamron 150-600 resolves 1700 lines at 600mm F8.0 while this resolves 2100 lines at 400 mm F8.0. That means, still Tamron would resolve about 15% better. Is that a better choice for tele end? (of course, the output quality will be still better in this one due to low CA, accurate focus). http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/lens-compare-fullscreen?compare=true&lensId=canon_100-400_4p5-5p6_ii&cameraId=canon_eos5dmkiii&version=0&fl=400&av=8&view=mtf-ca&lensId2=tamron_150-600_5-6p3_vc&cameraId2=canon_eos5dmkiii&version2=0&fl2=400&av2=8
I thought my camera had problem, so i gave to my friend, and the return period passed. However, I sold it back to KEH camera for 200$ less. (I did not want to sell to someone else and cheat)
thanks for explaining.
heheh... so you are saying 3 KG Sigma is better than 2 KG Tamron? Though isolated incident, I bought a Sigma 100-300 mm F4 (used) from KEH which had poor resolution and consistently missed focus. May be my digital rebel camera is too old, I am not sure what to blame, but I know sigma is not worth it weight.
A very good detailed review indeed.
