Sony have crippled their Ax bodies with a stupid lossy raw compression... well done Sony !
http://blog.mingthein.com/2015/01/19/review-sony-a7-mark-ii

Ming thein :
"I am still not happy with the crippling 11+7 bit raw compression: you can still run into posterization fairly easily in highlights and shadows, especially if adjusting color balance under mixed lighting. Watch carefully for clipping, too – it doesn’t roll off nicely in the highlights like the D810. ISO for ISO, lens for lens, the D750 delivers a better quality file – with about 1-1.5 additional stops of usable (i.e. clean, manipulable in postprocessing without artifacts) dynamic range"

Having such good sensor in a camera with can't handle all color informations because of file compression, this is great, this is sony.

In reply to:

fedway: 645z more impressive than the PhaseOne. A7R more impressive than the D810.

"...and the Sigma Merrill more impressive than the 645Z ;)"
Yeah, of course, in your dreams...

Ergo607: This is typical: one camera who is almost one year old gets a major update with significant improvement and a lot of news features and three camera's that are end of life get a firmware update too (name one manufacturer that has done the same in the past!) and all people do is moan...

Pentax, with diffraction correction added to the K3.

In reply to:

Paul Guba: Comparing two cameras with similar sensors is like comparing two cars with V8 engines. The 645Z and the Alpa are two completely different machines. I won't justify the huge price difference but at the same time you can't compare the two as tools. Phase also has better software and years of experience getting the best data from a sensor. There both great cameras but the similarity ends at MP.

I'm a hasselblad (553 ELX with 80mm t* Zeiss lens) and Pentax user, and seriously, Pentax lenses are at least as good as their Zeiss counterparts.
And they are cheaper, weather sealed, sometimes stabilized and with AF, so please, stop that bs about Pebtax lenses.

RadPhoto: Does anyone know if the shutter sound still LOUD? I have an NEX5n and I just hate the loud shutter sound. Why would a mirrorless camera have a loud shutter sound?

Maybe we should ask nicely to the tester. :)
So, how is the shutter sound, please ?

For Pentax, it was more than a rumor, it was in a interview from pentaxforum.com, where the Pentaxrep agree than they are looking for that technology.

They are some rumors about Pentax doing the same.

A $1800 camera should have a better sensor then Canon Eos 7d Mark II has...

Yeah, of course, there is a conspiracy to demote Canon sensors.
And if another sensor evaluation site make the same statement about Canon sensors, i guess they are in the conspiracy too...

Great a new Lolca camera !
This is hilarious, a 400$ Pentax K50, aOly or Pana 4/3 gives better results.

In reply to:

Everlast66: I think it is laughable to call anything associated with the M4/3 system "PRO"!!

Surely there would be one or two enthusiasts, but no normal professional will rely on a M4/3 sensor for their professional work.

I've never heard any of these names, sorry.

Segaman: Countdown to read trollers hating canon.
Gee, you guys spreads wrong infos all over the net, I wonder why.
If your camera is a lot better, why dont you guys go shoot some pics, instead of wasting your time and our time with your negative views.
I am glad I dont have to you guys in the forum I go daily, really sad

Well, sorry for you, but this is a Epic Fail from Canon...
