SRHEdD: As an old Nikon guy, after my D600 flaked and D800 had white spots, I jumped ship. This is a great camera, and for a change I actually HAVE a camera that gets a great firmware upgrade! As good as it WAS, it is very noticeably faster now! You get so many creative hardware scenarios with Sony, and they have the lenses I need. Not as many as Canikon to be sure, but very nice lenses in my wheelhouse. The 16-50/2.8 is a great kit zoom, but a little heavy. And having an A6000 as a second kit, using the same flashes, microphones, etc. is very satisfying (I can even share lenses with a LA-EA4!). Even my Sony P/S uses the same basic menus and I can add a mic to its hotshoe on a windy day. That's three different formats/mounts using shared kit. THAT'S how to build a system. Great job Sony! I'm with you for the long haul! ...Now to get that new A7ii to fill out my bag!
SrhedD. For exactly same reasons, I bought in canikon simply because Sony cannot provide me with the basic thing I need: a fast AF system and quality telephoto lenses up to 800mm
Hans von der Crone: Very much considering this one instead of the 7DII.
Marc..you must have noticed that the DxO performance of both sensors are so similar, despite the fact one used in A77 II must be better. All performance was washed out sadly by the SLT mirror.
tecnoworld: I hope they'll test the new improved AF against the samsung nx1 and the top performer Nikon D750.
You must be kidding....the A7II is surely faster than Nx1 but...never be able to catch up D750.
WatsonPhoto: Objectivity is the key here. There has been a lot of press about the 7D II; both good and bad. Interesting video as I always like to look at pro work. Back to reality. I always like to look at what my Canon 7D/5D III friends are shooting and D800/D810 users are doing. (sorry dont know Sony people) I dug back into the archives for some D300 images from 2009. The 7D II images are very similar. The noise is similar to original film grain when you crank the ISO. Very nice look; but not what I am expecting in 2014. I love my Canon, Nikon and Panasonic bodies but this Canon does not cut the mustard. If Canon were to outsource the sensor they would have a home run/grand slam camera.
It looks that you have both platforms... so if you think Canon 7d II...does cut it, just pick up a Nikon.
A few lines on the updated camera model will be fine but..my god...our cameras have a general life less than 6 month...
bawbaw: Nikon: "Hey Sony can we have one of your new sensors"Sony: "No, we are releasing then first in our cameras now, they are going to be something no one thought possible before"Nikon: "Ok say 6 months?"Sony: "Ok, just don't think you can ever get a sensor up front again though!"Nikon: "Ok. Guys get out the guide to selling snake oil and shave some buttons off an existing body, we got us a camera release to do!"
You're correct. I was trying to say, even with identical sensor, images from Nikon bodies can be better because of different processing units....and I believe this fact appears to be more marketing orientated.
Nikon always gets the first from best of all Sony sensors unless Nikon has better alternatives. The sensor used in d810 is a better one found in A7r, not to mention better image processor found in the camera body so there should not be anything worried.
As far as know, this is a Canon patented technology. Since when this became a Nikon one?
Zeisschen: I feel Sony is going to release nothing than outstanding lenses for this FF E-mount. The myth that Sony is not good at lenses is truly a myth for people who used A-mount Sony Zeiss and Sony G glass. These new FE lenses are so incredibly lightweight as well, much lighter than they look like. Product design couldn't be better as well in my opinion. This will be a winner system for sure, not for everyone, but for people who want to travel light but don't want to make any compromise with sensor size and picture quality. Pair this with a little RX100 in your pocket and you are set for almost everything...
I have the same feelings. I have invested huge on Sony and Minolta made lenses but only recent two FE primes shine
I love my D800 which also has dust and oil spot issues..and local Nikon simply denies it
Typically filled up 2 128Gb CFs..in a busy half day shooting so can this Mac Air meet the demand not just for importing but also processing some of the works in a very short lunch break?
Adrian Harris: OMG - it simply blows away the Canon 5D Mk111 for showing fin detail, even in very low light - wow. Now that did surprise me!
The image, even at jpg, blows images from D610, my 5D3 and my D800 away though I couldn't get it because 5D3 holds a better DxO mark at high iso like 12800
The official site of Meikon is herehttp://www.meikon.cc/It has never been very sable....
steveo baird: As impressive as these Nauticam housings are.. they are improperly priced. It doesn't make sense to sell a WP Housing for a Nex-6 at the price of a Nex-7.Nex-6L (PZ1650) $999 + NA-NEX6 $1450 = $2500
At $2500, Why wouldn't you just buy an OMD-EM5?Plus over 1k in lenses/accessories.
Or, more realistically, if you're going to spend $2500, why wouldn't you buy a much better camera? Such as a Sony a99.
Then again, I said this when I had my Nex-5n, and now I'm saying it about this na-nex6 version.. But people still purchased the NA-NEX5N, and capture absolutely stunning images.Worth it?Only if you're professional, or really have the extra money and don't mind..
I have been struggling...since I have had Nex6 for some time. It is a much better camera than, say, Nex 5 and 5n but...almost as good as OMD...and much less responsive than dSLR A99/D800/5DIII. So for the same amount of money I can have a Ikelite housing for D800/5DIII
Can we at least see the votes?
Geez....almost never took RX100 for a serious shooting because the lack of this grip
szepesitelki: I am planning to by a new camera. I am almos a beginner and completely unsure wich one should I buy the Nikon d 7000, Pentax K5 or Sony A 77? Can somebody give me an advice,please.Thanks
Three of the top cameras you mentioned all performed well. A77 is a generation ahead, offering better real time live view and full AF video recording. K5 offers highest possible IQ of all cameras. D7000 is the most popular of three.
