JackM: If I catch someone holding a Leica M out at arms length like a goddamned tourist, I will steal it from them.

Proper word is "rescue" here...

Tim Gander: I've decided not to buy one because the temptation to see what happens when you undo that massive screw would be too much to bear.

Simple, the rear panel falls off...

MacroBokeh: I will buy this camera, and when it arrives..I will cuddle it, sleep with it in my bed, take care of it, bring it everywhere..

Sleep with it? Just be sure to bring a fully charged battery with you (mirror lockup...)

vesa1tahti: No integrated flash? It means, not a modern camera. D7200 wins. Cheers.

D4s is probably not a modern camera as well...

Zoron: Can't they make a 24-35mm F2.0 zoom....50-85mm F2.0.....kinda 2 prime lenses in one....a 1.45X zoom & a 1.7X zoom

They can. The size will be enormous as well as price. It's a risk for any manufacturer to do a lens limited (read crippled) by its physical size and affordability - and especially for a mirrorles system with plastic mounts:-)
Anyone thinking about such a lens will do much better with two or three compact and fast primes.

I don't need AF for macro. Just saying it's easier to manufacture in a lot of mounts if you don't have to deal with different autofocus mechanisms.

And don't use AF. Without AF the mount is just a piece of turned metal.

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (796 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mrrowe8: I keep asking this and would love to of seen the reviewer truly address this .. TheD750 kit is 1000$ More and the body only is 700$ better then the Sony A7II that's it plain and simple is the image that much better .. Especially as we look at these as prosumer not elite pro cameras ?

You can invest some 350$ for LA-EA4 and buy the same Minolta lenses for even less:-) The a7 is great for its universality and 'modularity', but I agree it's no match for the nikon system for pure imaging power and system robustness:)

In reply to:

Cameracist: My quick 'tests' shows the A7's ARW files to be noisy as hell when processed in ACR, but clean and fine-grained when processed in RawTherapee. Can anyone comment on that? Similar experience, anyone?

Because the RT can give sharper - crisper image as well, i too think a bad compatibility of .ARW and ACR are to blame...

Please reccomend a selfie stick with image stabilization. Is there any? Preferably one with a 3D ball head and durable enough to support a DSLR. Thanks a lot!

On Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview (796 comments in total)

I like the idea of IBIS (old manual lenses fan here:) But the original a7 suits me great for it's small size and "old manual style" of grip and holding and small body form. For one part I'm glad the IQ is the same - I have less regret for buying the original a7 recently:-D
I think there have to be more changes to justify the increased bulk, at least for my style of using, but kudos to Sony anyway - for going new ways and thinking outside of the box. I'm really curious to see how the A7s II and A7r II will turn out. It will be a bit dissapointing if they are just like the A7 II with the same changes and differences between those models like they are for now...

In reply to:

brycesteiner: >> Noisy high ISO images
They don't look bad at all. I've seen much worse. Maybe I'm blind.

>>Heavy for a mirrorless camera
People don't get mirrorless cameras just because of the weight, but because all mirrored cameras don't hold a candle to the quality of the VF and the better images you get because of better feedback.

>>Subject tracking in continuous AF can be unreliable
Easily fixed on a firmware update. Good to bring this to the attention of Sony.

>>No quick way to magnify AF point at 100% to check focus
Seriously? How many people actually do this?

>>Over-sensitive eye sensor
This is a real problem. I would just turn it off

>>No touchscreen
This knocks MacBook Airs too, but I actually find touchscreens to be extremely annoying and themselves are a con. Computers and cameras that don't have them are better because then people don't leave their greasy finger prints all over, especially when the touchpads built have far better response and gestures.

They mean noisy for one of the newest FF camera. The images are okay, but not in the best league (a7 user here).
