yonsarh: Sony A6000 vs Nikon 1 V3 which one will you choose ?
yabokkie, Is there any mirrorless faster than A6000?
jon404: How much for the case?
Case with a body, Zeiss 24-70/2.8 and 2 batteries costs $11500
Zoron: This is Sony's answer to Nikon Df.......cool
Why Sony's? It's Hasselblad, isn't it? And why somebody has to answer on Df(so-so camera, to tell the truth). It would be better if Nikon answer on A7/A7r.
Nyo: Firmware upgrade by Sony? Can't believe it.
My Sony A77 had 6 updates. A99 was updated 2 times, same as A850. Do You really know what You are talking about?
Zoron: no IBIS? about time Fuji....before it is too tale
Image samples were taken using ZA85/1.4. Did You use adaptor with SLT(LA-EA4) or without it(LA-EA3)?
noirdude: if only nikon can make the body as small or slightly bigger than the sony A7… the Df design is just too bulky for a retro camera
@RichRMANikon DF is on the 77th place in Amazon rankings, Sony takes 7th and 14th places with A7R and A7. Still think DF is more successful than A7/A7R ?
ChrishsChan: I have the chance to play with the A7 and A7r last Sunday at the Sony promotion in Vancouver. I used a SD card of Class 10 for both of the cameras. I found the A7 performance is acceptable for it's features and value. For the A7r, my first impression with this camera is totally unacceptable. The Sony guy told me the camera is a pre-production one, no idea whether it is real, I don't think Sony will let people play with such a camera if they want people to buy it. My conclusion is dead slow. I did three continuous photos, then, the camera image processing became very slow to respond. It took at least one minute before it could give us a result (photo) display on the LCD screen. Hope this is for a pre-production one. How can it match with other full frame cameras.
ChrishsChan - class10 just means that card can write 10mb/sec. I have SDXC can that can write 45mb/sec, and it is class 10, and one more: it is 3 times slower and it is class 10 too. I don't say that You did something wrong. But now class 10 doesn't mean anything. By the way, 13 members of SonyClubRussia had an opportunity to test A7/A7r for couple of days, and none of them had problems with write speed. (Sorry for my terrible English)
If somebody has money to buy FF camera, why not to buy fast SD card? Don't forget about size of 36mp pictures
silentstorm: These new A7s need more lenses with OSS. I don't understand why the omission of OSS in the newer Zeiss prime lenses.
Or is Sony differentiating the products by having IBIS in Alpha mount & non-IBIS in the Nex series?
So now we have Alpha APS-C & FF (IBIS) & Nex APS-C & FF (non-IBIS lower end stuff)
It's impossible to make stabilized sensor in such tiny body. If there'll be something like A7 but in DSLR shaped body, it will sure have SSS.
johnmanoah: When talking about innovation, why aren't these companies considering these easy-to-have innovations?
1. Rotatable (up/down) flash head - so that we could bump the flash to a ceiling or elsewhere. Currently, the in-built flash forces light upon the target which usually results in bright spots or over exposure
2. 3G sim card slot - so that the camera is connected to the internet and sharing/storing is simple
4. Touch screen
Ricoh/Nikon/Canon - Are you listening?
Lumix L1 has unique flash head with 2 positions. Very usefus feature.
jkokich: So, Canon comes up with a system that can compete with two year old Sony tech? Seems like a win for Sony.
Canon wasn't able to make pellicle mirror usable. Sony does it.
tkbslc: It's pretty clear that DxoMark hates Canon.
In menu You can choose AF speed, FAST for stills and ACCURATE for video. And don't forget, Sony has fast AF not only in video, but in LiveView too.
zigi_S: To all you sony fanboys out there. SLT isn't the same tech as on sensor pdaf. SLT still has a mirror! And it's nothing new. The SLT concept is old and only a desperate manufacturer like SONY would try to market it like inovation. It will be funny when mew canon M models will AF much better than the NEX system. Where will be the new tech from sony then? Sony's on sensor PDAF is inferior to CANON's. It loses light!
I have both A77 and A99. A99 in AF-D is faster and more accurate. Besides this A99 has AF-Range, which helps to reduce time needed for focusing.
Suave: Doesn't Sony have a 18-55 lens similar to Canon's kit lens?
Yes, it does, but Sony has 2 kit lens. 18-55 doesn't have silent motor. 16-50 SSM is a kit lens special for video. Comparing 40/2.8 and 18-55/3.5-5.6 would be not very fair, wouldn't it?
Did they broke that 70D? Didn't they just shoot video, so everyone could decide, which camera is better?
Ayoh: These comparisons does not seem fair as the exposure differs between cameras. For example look at this option:
Canon 5D Mark III and Olympus E-M1RAWISO 25600LOW LIGHT
The exposure parameters are:Canon - 1/60, f7.1Olympus - 1/50, f5.6
In the comparison EM-1 has similar noise to 5D under all sizes(full/print/web). The amount of light received by the camera sensors must have been different between the cameras to get this result.
http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Database/Olympus/PEN-EPM1 - Olympus is not very honest in marking ISO. For example, ISO12800 set on EPM1 is only ISO7693. That's why we see the difference in camera settings.
Antimateria: And...First on Amazon US.I see an very very very very very positive review in future on this very very indipendent and no commercial site... ;)
1st and 2nd and 5th ))
Don't forget, it costs $399! Even SL1 body costs $649! For SL1 body price You can get A3000 kit + Sigma 60/2.8.
yabokkie: the next big thing is to print lenses.
Canon does the same with EOS-M ))
