Whitesands: The a6000 looks the like worst APSC in raw...The amount of noise is worse than the canon...

All I see is that 750/760D and A6000 has almost similar noise levels, but picture from A6000 has more details(in RAW)

Wow! Up-to-date Canon sensor is almost as good(http://s019.radikal.ru/i600/1505/2b/3621624c8c71.jpg) as Sony sensor of camera, released more than year ago, and still worse than Nikon D5500. Waiting for DR test ;)

The Davinator: I'm sure all the Canon users will claim it is a feature.

I think, these spots help to reduce totally useless DR of their wonderful sensors

Stollen1234: hmm i thought Sony has the best sensors on the market?? then why this new camera is getting only 80%??!!

haha funny Sony

SLT needs 20% of light, not 50. There are no advantages? Then why does Canon work in this direction?(http://www.canonwatch.com/canon-patent-translucent-mirror/). Are You sure about prices? B&H, Adorama and other shops sell A77-2 body for $900, Body+16-50/2.8 for 1600. 7D2 costs 1700 for body.

exapixel: I probably missed it in the review, but does this Sony has a lossless RAW file output option? If not, does it exhibit the same artifacts along vertical edges in high-contrast regions as do the E-mount cameras with only lossy RAW?

exapixel - I've made >250 000 shots with A77, 305 000 with A99 and 15 000 with A77-2 and have never seen artefacts They talked about. I'm sure, We can find them if We want it, but in normal conditioins cRAW is not problem at all.

DP-AF is not "classic" PD module. If You try to compare it, You'll see it. Also, You have to move up mirror every time You want to use LiveView. And what camera has 12fps? If You talk about 7D-2, then why? 7D-2 costs like two A77-2's(or A77-2+16-50/2.8). Compare A77-2 to 70D.

I have A77,77-2 and A99 and know, that SLT may be the problem, only when the light is not enough. In most cases I can make shutter speed a little longer to redress light loss, that's all. SLT features(phase detect AF in video and LiveView, no mirror shake, 12fps, EVF and so on) are much more important for me.

Those who compare A77-2 with 7D-2, don't forget, that 77-2 with great 16-50/2.8 costs less than 7DII body.

In reply to:

vesa1tahti: The D7200 simply is brilliant compared to this Sony. Lower high ISO noise, better IQ all in all. We may wait a few years in order to see an other APS-C beating the Nikon.

The D7200 is in some ways brilliant compared to every APS-C including 7D-2, isn't it? But A77-2 is still faster, has IS, better video capabilities, tilt-swivel screen and great live-view mode, and also has EVF(i shoot with OVF camera(A850) and SLT's, and for me EVF is way better)

Eleson: Good read.
Question when it comes to AF performance (maybe not only this camera)
Is those tests done with the latest generation of lenses?
AF performance is very much a combination of camera and lens ...

You're right. I shoot with A77-2 for half a year. It's AF is very fast and reliable with lenses like 16-50/2.8 and 70-200G2. Not so good with screw-drive lenses like CZ135/1.8

24-240/2.8-5.6? Sony RX10 with 1" sensor has 24-200/2.8

Same with Canon 5DS. So what?

ZF 35/1.4 is 120mm, so what?

J A C S: "This new ZEISS® Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA full-frame wide angle prime showcases legendary ZEISS® optical performance in a compact design. "

LOL! It is larger than the Canon, Sigma and the Nikon.

I guess they mean it is smaller and lighter than manual Zeiss 35mm F/1.4 Distagon

In reply to:

Lea5: Interesting news from Canon. Seems to me this is a great camera for studio use. And hey it is a bargain for a price of just 3899!! I will check this camera for a day or two and if fine I'll get one to my other cameras. I still have a few Canon lenses. 50MP for that price is fantastic to me and my customers. Of course hobby shooters will call this a fail and whine like always :)

GlobalGuyUSA - if Canon or Nikon or somebody else make 36mp APS-C sensor, will it be comparable with 36mp FF? Probably, not. So why do You think that 50mp FF has comparable with MF IQ?

joe6pack: The list look fine to me. But A7 II rated best? How many readers actually touched the camera? Let alone trying or owning?

Do You think, everyone here have been using Fuji 56/1.2, Lumix LX100, and so on

blink667: IBIS is a great addition, but same sensor as the A7... any evidence of an IQ uptick?

What about Canon Aps-C sensors?
