Battersea: Looking forward to a review. The specs are fine but the big improvements will be the focusing and ISO performance which we will only know when the reviews come in.
look for a review at The Digital Picture
Good and thorough review Rishi, Canon need to hear this. Its unfortunate that Canon have not caught up yet with their sensor technology, we can only hope that will happen soon. Canon glass and color rendition are the only things keeping me in the Canon camp, experimenting with the A7RII and D800E has shown me what direction Canon really need to go.
I heard rumor Canon would be using on sensor ADC conversion in their next sensor, I can only hope its true, perhaps a version of BSI, we'll see.....
Boissez: Sony sure makes great cameras. Maybe, just maybe, they should consider making more lenses to match those great bodies.
that is not true, its main tenant is to get rid of the mirror and try to compete with DSLR's, you will see FE mount f/2.8 zooms very soon and this camera's is pretty much for any one that can afford it. If you want lite by f/4 zooms, if that's your market.
Nice Beer shot : )
madeinlisboa: Time to separate good photographers from Photoshopers...
Editing RAW is no different than editing film in the dark room, if your not shooting RAW your throwing away the equivalent of the negative. Reuters will change their mind on this one eventually.
If there is a need for speed the photographer will shoot RAW+JPG and send the JPG, no need for speed then they should be able to process the RAW. Each camera type processes RAW based on the manufacturers specs, not Reuters specs, how will that be consistent?
Sony needs to make them because Zeiss is not currently making them, I want to buy in to a system that I know will be backed by Sony, not Zeiss. I also want f/2.8, I don't want to shoot at ISO 109k, f/2.8 gives you something f/4 does not, if you have not tried it, you should.
Its very valid,Sony still does not produce the f/2.8 Pro caliber zooms or very long primes....
at least they got the focus toggle that Sony forgot and the EVF might finally have arrived, think Ill go with the A7rII though....
indeed a great capture
how come no one is having a problem with Sony's compressed RAW, all I see is people complaining about other cameras, as a landscape photographer I want un-compressed RAW files so I dont have artifacts, I'm guesiing Sony has a problem with this that they are not letting on about it.
Ross Murphy: I would love to have a fast focusing system camera to go along side my 5D with a couple of fast primes and an adapter so I could use it with the rest of my EOS lenses, as a matter a fact, if it could focus fast it would be excellent to use next to a 5DSR. If Canon was smart thats what they would give us, because a lot of people are doing it with Canon and Fuji, instead of Canon and Canon
no mirrorless camera is as fast as a DSLR, we are waiting on the technology
MatsO: My 2c as a Newbie. (the only digital Camera I got is an OPtio 555).
basically I would like to take a DSLR and remove the mirror and viewfinder assembly and replace it with an EVF, keeping the rest of the camera.
Since all DSLR:s in Liveview or Videomode already works as a mirrorless camera the sensors already can do the job. The 70D sensor for example do prove it.
ConsA little bigger and heavier than it needs to beA pure design could take a bigger battery
ProsIt would be the same size as a DSLR. Many small cameras are hard to hold. It would have the same mount as the DSLR:s. (avoid the EF-M mistake)The same look and feelA little cheaper to make. An Evf is cheaper than a mirror and optical viewfinder
The question is if there would be a market for this strange bird?
if it could focus fast and accurate, then yes, but so far they cant

COSTISTOICA: Yesss, canon wins. canon has need 40 years to beat Nikon 13mm f/5,6 wide angle lens :" The 13mm is Nikon's greatest lens. It is Nikon's greatest lens because not only is it big and supremely expensive, it is Nikon's, and perhaps photography's, greatest lens because it lets us make photographs we can make no other way.
The Nikon 13mm is the world's widest non-distorting professional SLR lens ever made, by anyone, in any format. It allows us to get closer to our subjects, stretch distances and create images from perspectives otherwise unimaginable. "
nice to see Pentax finally go full frame, more competition, better products all around. Im sure this will be a good one. The pressure will be on Fuji and Olympus now.
People shouldn't worry about what other people use, I shoot FF because I like it, I also shoot APS-C because its weighs less for some work. People that want the best will get FF or bigger, it is true that the more you spend the better IQ can be achieved. Not every one requires that though, however a lot of people want to say its so little difference it doesn't mater, if thats the case, why even bring it up.Given an important shoot I will always bring my FF camera, I can always get better image quality from it.
Keith Colgan: I have a request into Canon for the answer, but until I hear from them, does anyone know if the 7DM2 will have a new RAW file type that will require the software people to accommodate?
all new cameras require an update
