Damo83: $950???!!!!!

If the job you're doing pays $20,000 for the images and it is essential you get them from say Burkina Faso to the client in London, you'd happily pay $950 for a rugged backup.

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (798 comments in total)
In reply to:

EvilTed: Amateur Photographer from the UK, has a completely different review, claiming the noise handling is great and that the DR is better than the D750 or D810.

I smell a rat DP :(

Since they have yet to review the D810 they may not know this...!

Marty4650: Except for that 28mm prime, those are some really big lenses!

They probably are pretty good lenses, but it defeats the purpose of buying the "smallest FF body" when you need to attach a big honking lens to it.

Of course, everything is relative. I'd say these kits are still a lot more compact than any Nikon D810 with similar lenses....

You can't make the lenses small and keep the sensor big. Physics!

No camera without a viewfinder can be taken seriously.

Seems pretty niche to me!

In reply to:

Douglas F Watt: How does it get to be so big at just slightly wider (11mm vs the 12mm of the Nikon), while the Nikon is 2.8 and it's f4? Don't get that one . . . .

Because the Nikon is a better lens..

Only f4? Who wants a lens that slow? I think the Nikon 14-24 f2.8 is still better.

In reply to:

MPA1: It seems to be missing an essential (IMV) component: a viewfinder.

An LCD is NOT a viewfinder. It is a screen.

Technically impressive but practicality lacking for many uses - which at least they seem to have recognised.

In reply to:

Fogsprig: I've got E-M10. Of course, I gave it my vote BUT the real best product of 2014 is A7S (absent in polls, to my surprise).
P.S. You guys are weird in that A7II craze.

I agree that it is odd the finest low light still camera ever made is not in the running!

In reply to:

MPA1: How can that Sony win - it's not even in the shops in NZ yet!

I say it because it has been available for such a short time that it cannot realistically have been evaluated by people voting for it. Frankly a product that has not yet completed worldwide release should not even be in the list.

In reply to:

Caerolle: Wow, X-T1, Best Camera. I will never understand that. Pretty camera, though.

edit: Ooops, Runner-up. I guess there were two runners-up. How it beat the D750 is beyond me, though, and I hate Nikon cameras. Size and weight, I guess, and old-dude controls.

Yes they hamstrung it with poor high ISO RAW abilities which renders it useless to me.
It does look nice though which is important for consumer cameras.
