You guys are being very gentle in the wifi section, you don't even talk about the impossibility to start recording a movie from the phone...Anyways, consistency for me is more important than many features that doesn't work as it should, it seems that the wifi implementation is consistent...
ttran88: Off topic but Rishi, how's the EVF? From the specs it seems to be bigger and better than the already great XT1 EVF?
I'm all with Rishi here, the resolution should have been bumped up, 0.78x is too big to it, if you want to compete with dslrs you should have the EVF at the same or better level of "definition".I guess the next iteration with a bigger or better battery and EVF will be the one i was waiting for! thrilled!
Miki Nemeth: If you have ever tested the Sony A5100 AF-C mode with its brilliant touch-to-focus operability, then these improvements are straightforward steps further. I wonder when Sony is including touch-to-focus operation to all of its cameras? Since I've been using A5100, I'd be really hesitant to step back to a non-touch operation.
@Zeisschen this is not true at all.I'm just waiting for the moment we will look at the evf and use your thumb on the screen to quickly move the AF points.It will be very effective, maybe, in a near future we would not even have physical buttons(dials remain) on the back of the camera,Just a big Oled that adapt to the curvature of thumb rest and so.
This is almost like a revolution. This camera will be a Mark in history of photography and cameras in general. One thing, we need to see with objects moving too, in the use cases shown the IBIS is probably helping the af tracking compensating the movements of the camera, it can be completely diferent with moving objects and the camera steady, either way, i'm already Very impressed!
Thats funny, I thought canon would be the one to get the most out of this sensor, the d810 looks much better with the OTUS and the Canon just a hair better, this acctualy proves that the 85 from canon is sharper than the nikon one and the dilutes even more the diference between these 2 sensors.
RXIV worse image quality than RXIII?OR now we are getting real RAWs?The chromatic aberration and of the RXIV and a little diference in white balance is very perceptible.
Mike FL: Rishi Sanyal;
Regarding to your statement of "Actually, our results are entirely comparable between cameras despite us not reporting measured vs. manufacturer ISO because for any given ISO, we always give cameras the same exact exposure and amount of light.".
Really? Lets selecting RAW and ISO=200 in DPR's "studio test scene comparison tools":
- Nikon D4: F5.6, 1/100s
- Fuji X-A1: F5.6, 1/60s
Will you still say " for any given ISO, we always give cameras the same exact exposure and amount of light."?
Well you just proved what he said...The fuji cheat on ISO numbers...
more than 3000 comments, this is a new record?
600mm is kind of a niche.I guess pana with 400 is a better compromise.I still prefer the rx10 2 over the other 2 but the price have to go down.
chrispicasso: Just buy the sony a7R II.??
HowaboutRAW, take your time to explore this new sony camera and notice every new nuance of detail on the spec sheet, and we can discuss. And by the way the new shutter mecanism was totaly remade from the ground. As this guy said.https://youtu.be/AM3Cveq2qzk
Bet the Sony has eletronic shutter thats totaly silent, oh i don't bet, it has it and is dead silent as a camera can be.
Marcelobtp: I guess Dpreview made a error stating that ISO 102.400 can be used in video mode. Please confirm that.
Thats why i guessed they were wrong, but they said that Sony said, so who am i to say that it doesn't.

Marcelobtp: This camera is acctualy capable of more than 8k video, Its just amazing! HOLY COW!
This camera is full sensor readout. 8k is about 33 MPX this has 42 so yes greater than 8k.

ZeneticX: Everything is perfect regarding this camera but there's 3 minor issues for me:
i) The RAW engine. Previous rumours are stating sony is working on a revised RAW engine for this camera, but there's nothing from the official press release. Only reviews can tell now. Not that a big issue for me compared to some out there, but it's good if they can solve the issue to bring in more professional crowd.
ii) Where's the II sign in the logo?
iii) DAT PRICE
as for lenses, Sony had promised an additional 8 FF E mount lenses by end of this year in a separate announcement weeks ago. Surprised that isn't covered by DPR.
cmon, they could have included usb 3 or 3.1. For a 42mpx and 4k video recorder this is a must.
vincent__l: Interesting engineering approach from Sony. Full frame sensors don't gain as much, for low light performance, from BSI compared to smaller sensors. However, the BSI sensor likely allowed Sony to use much wider (thus faster) metal routing for the pixel interconnect. This greatly improves the readout speed which is important for both video and liveview performance. The faster speed also allowed them to have silent shooting with such a large and high resolution sensor. I'm curious to see the impact on color accuracy due to the BSI approach as there may be some degradation. There may also be an impact to battery life and noise from the higher readout speed. I'm also curious as to what caused the additional weight vs the A7II.
the EVF is bigger: one cause.
prossi: Now can you imagine what the a7s II is going to be? Night vision camera with upped rez, 4K and image stabilization. Can't wait.
Nope?What he said is totaly reasonable, he didnt said nothing about resolution, 12 mpx is plenty for 4k.
You forgot about USB 2.0 ports...
Everything is supperb but, why USB 2.0?WHY???
