On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1045 comments in total)
In reply to:

ttran88: Canon XC10 is more important than this camera. 4k no Lossy RAW. Only $2500

Canon XC10 doesn't have any RAW(only jpeg when shooting stills). It has 8 times smaller sensor(same as RX10-2(which costs 2 times less, has a bit shorter, but brighter lens, has up to 960fps video))

In reply to:

GabrielZ: Where's the rumoured a7000? I wonder if Sony are still developing APS-C MILCs at all? They're priority seems to be profitable FF MILCs and high-end compacts now. I wonder if this deemphasis of APS-C will effect future development of Sony's excellent APS-C sensor line? We've seen Sony's BSI-CMOS 1" and FF sensors, but no APS-C equivalent! This worries me a little being a Fujifilm user and their dependance on APS-C sensors...I think they use Sony sensors but with a custom Fujifilm designed colour filter array.

According to SAR, A7000 is under development. http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/is-the-a7000-the-one-more-thing-from-sony/

Couscousdelight: The best sensor coupled to the worst image compression.
This is stupid, this is Sony.

Couscousdelight - Where did You get info, that A7r2 has only compressed RAW?

maximme: now that this has 4K video,
how is Canon XC10 going to survive?
given the huge price difference.....

Significantly longer zoom? What would You prefer for video-use, 24-200/2.8(like Rx10) or 24-240/2.8-5.6? XC10 has higher bitrate, but RX10-2 is able to shoot 960fps. By the way, RX10-2 can be used not only for video, but for photo. XC10 doesn't even support RAW

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.

In reply to:

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
