genius idea - if you have a junky / kitch product that no one would buy, call it art, and charge $6200 ......sell one and you're ahead ..... sell none and at least it gets your name up there ...... smart people.

Photato: Apple posted yesterday earnings of $13.6 billion for the 2015 Q2 mostly due to iPhone sales.
That is a lot of money!

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple gave DxOMark $80K just to keep the iPhone at the top of the list by not publishing the Note 4 data for 7 months.

Merry Christmas Samsung !

.......hmmmm at 20 million phones per year, if giving the false impression it had the best phone camera was worth 2% of sales, that would be about 200,000 phones in 6 months, or $100 m odd, a long lunch or two with the boys who were doing the testing, and explaining to them that there is a hard way and an easy way ........ could be a very good investment .

........ but, did the world need another lens mount ? it could have had the world at its feet if it were possible to use an existing mount, ideally canon, but even the Pentax they used to use would have answered the only reasonable objection to it .......

I thought with convergence you were supposed to take the best features of each world not the worst ?

Reinhard136: " Especially given all the competition- the 6D, D750, a7R, and a7S all outperform it by a good margin". I thought now they have gone too far, worse than a canon ! no way . Have a look, it is true ?!?! Par with the A6000. Either there is a master conspiracy in the studio, or Sony has slipped ....... or are they lying doggo on the sensor because there is something very nice coming, to slap everyone down with ........ ? Will stick with the A 6000 till sony reveals its hand.

yes, says it all, doesn't it, against canon who struggle at dxo.

....... you might like to re-read what I had to say - you seem to have taken agreement and a backhanded compliment as an insult. Don't really understand the logic of your posts, except that you are not happy.

err .... in the context of the review maybe. I was genuinely surprised to see at high iso the sony and canon on par, canon have a reputation for being so ordinary at the moment.
As far as the A 6000 goes you might like to dial it up on the studio selector at high iso side by side the A7 and compare - you would have to be good to notice much difference to the A7. Anyone would expect a bigger gap, full frame is a bit pointless otherwise.

Avobanana: "We didn't learned anything from competitors."

"There is nothing to be afraid of among the mirrorless cameras. "

"Our own mirrorless development team should be afraid of our DSLR team."

If this is not complacency or arrogance I don't know what it is. Plus it seems that there are some "bullying" going on against the mirrorless team. How dare they try building something that threaten the bread and butter of the DSLR business right?

Don't quite follow, you saying the Canon CEO is an internet troll ? Seems harsh, but is possible, some of his statements could be read that way ....... you suggesting we just ignore him ?

a good follow up to his answer on the would you buy sony question would have been to give him a bundle of test data for a sony chip and his comparable one, along with a sony order form. Of course as someone who doesn't look at his competitors he would not have been aware of the gap, and would be most grateful. As someone who would not lie, he would fill out the order form on the spot .......

It could be any or all ...... time only will tell, who knows what is going on behind the scenes,,,,,,, something big may be coming, they may be going down, complacency and arrogance may not stop with him it may be terminal through the whole company, and maybe they are just apologists for the strategy that makes the most money, ie.make sure everyone is hooked on your system via lenses,and celebrities are seen with your cameras, and only update your bodies when your competitors have done the experimenting and found out what works .........

Reinhard136: looks like a typo on one of the dates , the one with Jesus and his cross would have had to have been closer to ad 27 than 1827.

........ historically it is interesting too, shows that even a god can get tired of turning the other cheek, he is obviously cranky enough on the day to be giving the finger to someone.

vladimir vanek: Thumbs up for Sony. They've been doing good job over the last two years. Looks like E-mount is a good way to go alongside the ultra lightweight and portable MFT. I think Canikon will lose some market share.

yes, full frame, with flash, onboard antishake and a6000 style instead of fake pentaprism style would be as much as any one could ask for, unless the gods were really smiling and made it 50mp.

Zvonimir Tosic: Nice to know Fuji did not dare to compare Total_size-vs-Performance quotient of their cameras with Pentax K-3 armed with, say, 6 DA Limiteds.

But instead with 7DII which has .. ~8 years old sensor tech and no lenses that can compare with Fuji's or Pentax APS-C optimised primes.

High quality, and a broad range of cheapies too, which makes canon a good choice, despite their lack lustre, but generally good enough bodies. Makes canon's strategy of saving on development costs and milking the old models financially sound - in the short term.
Another reason for Fuji to compare themselves with canon rather than the others, pentax people and sony people wont be changing over to Fuji, they have already changed, or hung out, ....... the market pie that Fuji will nibble at is canikon .....
