I want to ask a questionif all these are shoot on a NEX-5N with Zeiss 24mm
Will any one find out any difference even pixel peeping at 100%?
I really doubt it
Simon97: After looking at some cameras using the Sony 16mp APS-C sensor high ISO shots, this camera does not seem all that impressive. The hi ISO shots are soft.
If you don't need the slight improvement of resolution and the stronger bokeh at the given (fixed) focal length of this camera, I'd look for a camera with an APS-C sensor. Get a NEX with a fixed lens for 1/4 the price.
I will say that Sony's 24mp APS-C sensor is disappointing in the high ISO department compared to the 16mp version and this FF sensor.
What you point out is a real important questionWhat is the real advantage of going full frame and not just this cameraTo me if not after shallow DOF no real need to go full frame
Lots of disadvantage besides cost and only real gain may be slightly higher dynamic range (which is enough if processing RAW in APS-C) and better high ISO (also OK with fast lens and APS-C)
HBowman: A SIGMA DP2 Merrill do better for far less money. My two cents ..
I am not sure if it really is true but I sense that the color of feveon sensor is less rich than normal sensor
To me it capture lots of detail but don't seem to catch all the subtle tone and shade of color, which to me is more important than detail
Again this is only my impression. May not be real
Jefftan: I really don't see much difference between this and a good APS-C cameraif one is not after very shallow DOF, no reason to go full frame
The advantage in low light can be obtain by a fast lens in APS-C
maybe there is some dynamic advantage but that is not obvious unless by side by side comparison testing
I really don't see much difference between this and a good APS-C cameraif one is not after very shallow DOF, no reason to go full frame
nothing specialIf I take all these pics with NEX-5N it would not be worse than these
ProfHankD: I've been saying for years that Sony should take advantage of the Linux security features to allow secure 3rd party apps to run on and control the camera, etc. This doesn't sound like that. Let's hope this announcement is quickly followed by an announcement about how to become a registered 3rd party developer....
what if 3rd party app mess up the camera?
Sony made a perfect camera (last year 5N)yet I hear complain complain complain
Those who own it know how good it is
Don't know 5R with new sensorNEX-5N is as close to a perfect camera one will ever get now and in the near future
excellent IQ yet small and lightIf I am Sony I would be upset What do they really want? or are they just get paid by competitors to make trouble
Charlie Jin: Whenever I see NEX attached with such a big lens,I just cannot help laughing... What a big joke...Why don't they make some nice quality pancake lens?
people thins lens is big because camera is very smallso simple yet few understood
I have one, whole camera is small and lightnever look back to DSLR, very good
Best camera one can buy for $600 regular price, period
Jefftan: I read the review. it said 18-55 mm can't deliver the full 24MP resolution but did not do any test to prove itSo this is just an opinion?
They really should do a test to prove itis the 18-55mm lens really no use for 24MP?if really so than people should opt for a lower resolution sensor if using kit lens only like D5100
I read the review. it said 18-55 mm can't deliver the full 24MP resolution but did not do any test to prove itSo this is just an opinion?
Is Canon the next Kodak?Thinking it is safe with it's dominant position and fail to take competitors like Sony seriously
If someone say otherwise please tell me how is this better than NEX in any single wayI can't even see even one improvement over NEX
35mm equivalent focal length is oddshould be at least 28mm
$100 more expensive than NEX-5N but how to justify thateven same price as NEX, is this better
NEX has a brilliant sensor which this probably can't matchlots more lens than this which has only 2
You got a CANON camera which may or may not impress someone who know nothing about photographyI can't wait to see how much the CANON name really worth, to me not a dime.
If I am buying today would still choose NEX, no need to even think much
dpreview no longer do group comparison like last year?waterproof and superzoom group test would be nice
I own LX5 but I have 0 interest in thisnot counting RX100 because of $650 price
The best camera of these type now is Olympus XZ-1
I have no idea why they think $500 is a reasonable price for small sensorall these product have always been below $400
Right now with increasing competition and game changer RX100 they actually think they could increase the price by 25% is totally silly in my opinion
Market will teach them a lesson. Even at $400 whether they can compete with Olympus XZ-1, Canon S100 and LX5 is uncertain
They really overestimate themselves by the success of Galaxy phone but this is camera which they have always been the underdog
why still no image samples?How do I know it is good
Not that I want a DSLR as I like my NEX-5N but if I want one
Why would I got this instead of the much cheaper just $700 Nikon D3200 which has the NEX 7 Sony excellent sensor
Canon is selling on brand name only. The real photographer would turn away from them just like their 5D mark III
Although sensor is much smaller than NEX (about 1/3 size) it is:
and the NEX sensor is not. May help overcome some IQ loss to sensor size
