40MPx (a bit less in 16:9) shines in a good light, no contest. I've got great black rubber case for it that makes for super non-conspicuous shooting. The noise of the sensor fascinates me, it is not that digital destructive noise seen on other devices, it is something like a fine grain film noise, a big keeper for now.
Do not want to sound negative, but looking for a mid-range camera and this thing costs much more then of the old trusty Sony A65 (2011), Canon has less megapixels, slower burst, no IBIS, no GPS, compared to that old 2011 Sony. Looking at video, again, D70 has only 30fps video while lower priced Sony got FullHD 60fps progressive two years back.., what is going on ? Second, why the gold award ? Where is the innovation ? Where is the spec worthy of 2013 ? Even Nokia sports 40 MPx cameras today.
Hope this materializes, better value.
Pangloss: I can summarize the concerns about Adobe's move to subscription-only use of their software thus: try to imagine a stranger clutching your balls in his hand. That's a real "concern", isn't it?
Yep, lots of us work offline most of the time. I see no point in this 'cloud' connected software thing at all.
Seen some early low light samples at Sony site, this thing is gonna kill !
