It's very good looking, I just hope it's comfortable to use. My Canon look more mundane but are very comfortable and get out of the way I'm shooting, can't ask for better ergonomics - I'm sure other brands do just as well.
Bad, bean counter decision: drop the price to make it a contender ($400 USD), find a nifty way of connecting a decent viewfinder that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and make it easy to share decent pics, plus RAW...
This is where I part ways with dpreview; the fact that there are many decent cameras does not mean it doesn't matter which you choose, but it does mean you should invest in your own technique, the opportunities to shoot, developing an eye, and then seeing if that decent camera isn't trapping you into a lens swamp, à la Sony.
New lens to shoot at walls or take a short trip? Take the trip, please.
Informative, which is always good in my book.
Tech tour de force by Sony, and an easy answer to the typical "what's the best pocketable camera I can buy?" question. Saw version III in person, the geek in me wanted it really bad, the photographer cringed at the ergonomics. I hope they sell by the thousands, won't compensate for poor composition and no knowledge of technique.
Sounds like an infomercial.
Good review, the cameras look really nice, my only worry would be the ergonomics for the T6s back wheel, nothing a trip to the store can't cure.
Looks very nice. "Canon should expect some cancelled EOS 5DS orders..." and Sony should expect more cancelled lens orders...
STM, metal connection, and still cheap, nice!
What a shame, at least they caught it and acknowledged it quickly.
Canon doing a Nikon, sheesh.
Bad Yongnuo, bad Yongnuo!
Good review, looks like a nice camera.
Looks like they're on to something but need a second version.
jrkliny: I am not sure I got much from this except it appears that Nikon is committed to providing high quality APS-C cameras. I wish Canon would adopt that idea.
Huh? Canon is the one with a "pro" 7DII, Nikon doesn't have a successor for their 300Ds, and you want Canon to learn from Nikon??
It's a good effort on the part of Dpreview; it's good that Nikon responded, much much of it sounds like stonewalling, which says something about the corporate culture.
Less points because of the over the top music.
Interesting camera, useful review.
