Eleson: Top picture:
f/11@38 mm , subject distance , what? 4 m?
= Dof from 2m to 58m !

Am I to judge the excellent panning technique here or am I missing something?
As far as AF , that shot doesn't require AF.

How to test AF system is for sure a company secret.
(And is most probably a matter of statistics)
OTOH, the nest best approach could be to implement a crude test ,and let the feedback from manufacturers guide you forward. :)

As you meet the makers from time to time, what can they teach you all about AF testing?
Whilst most probably isn't meant to be public, there must still be information about what to test that can move all of this forward.
Like the obvious fact that both object recognition time must be part of measurement.

kelstertx: "Face down in the dirt"...

The shooters most inclined to be willing to lay face down in the dirt to get the shot they want (pros) are the only ones forced to do so - no tilting/rotating screen. Dumb.

Or no useful AF when using the tilted screen.

bluevellet: It begins. The moment M mount turns the tide and becomes the only relevant mirrorless system left in the market.

Your grand children will look at you incredulously as you tell them Olympus made more than endoscopes back in the day or that Sony also had cameras in its repertoire of products with poor quality control way back then. You will tell them you were there when it all changed and it started with an affordable macro lens and ushered a Canon-only future.

Remember this day.

Yes!!
This is the lens that will bring the m-mount to the mass market!

Eugene232: old Sony A7 easy beats this camera..
and 2 times cheaper and smaller..

As many stated, lack of corner sharpness seems to be a lens or focus issue.
Changing it to pixel shift makes it better , but not great.
( I've never understood why anyone check sensor capabilities in the corners, but YMMV ...)

No coloring artefacts and other issues.
Amazingly good.
Even the Phase One gets a match for the first time.

Marcus Antonius: Why is no one talking about the softness in the 1dxII image?
Something went wrong there imho.

Shouldn't the card be white?

Old Cameras: They could so easily put an FF sensor in this body and make a mini-D5...

I think many would be disappointed if the mirror wasn't swapped for one that covered FF.
Not to mention the prism.

In practice, no they couldn't . That would be a new larger camera.

For EVF based cameras , battery life is neither good nor bad.

Yes and all Canon and Nikons should have BIG CONS for not mounting Sony lenses at all. Get Real.

Thing is. You can charge while you use it. Try that with an external charger. So any power pack will give you all the video time you need. Or shooting.
If I had to chose between external and USB. I'd take USB any day of the week if it allowed me to use while charging.

dash2k8: Shooting video through optical viewfinder will be really awesome and a deal-breaker for me.

True that.
Never and always (and need) are all strong words that gets used way to often.
