windmillgolfer: Errrr, DPR is owned by Amazon. Chinese walls or just poorly disguised publicity? Not that it's needed :-) If it offers innovative technology, works well as a phone, and is competitively priced then it'll sell.
Ha, ha, Lars could be on Mars
jrn145: This is my next camera. Coming from an original NEX-3, it should be well worth it (and about time, too).
And as an a6000 user, the RX100 II and III are tempting...maybe I should buy my wife a gift for Father's day, hmmm
Mr Butler: The review states as I quote below:
"The thing that's interesting to note is that, despite this attempt to apply less noise reduction in areas of detail, the a6000 does no better in retaining the fine texture in the light blue detail crop. "
"no better" than what? Please clarify.
So wheres the review DP REVIEW?
I Concur with JaimeA.
Hope to see that review soon DPR. Look forward to your identification of shortcomings that can be fixed by Sony, as well as a detailed review of it's strengths!
Paks: With every "con" may come a "pro". What the review fails to state (though I may have missed it) is the complete coverage of the frame with the select-able points, a huge improvement over the NEX-6.
Though it takes two button presses to access, is speed really of the essence for select-able focus points (on average ) or is it frame coverage? Would love to hear DPR's perspective on this.
I see your point (no pun intended) and agree.
But, I don't think it's as simple as fulfilling the expectations of the masses. I expect that most users would complain that eye-start got in the way of the touchscreen or the opposite, if they had put one in that was not perfect. Is the sole purpose of the touchscreen the focus points? Seems like a waste if true....
h2k: I thought this was a very interesting camera usability report with some good information. Thanks for this write-up!
It's sad that almost no-one in by now 660 comments acknowledges the interesting info, but just breaks into the usual fanboy militarism.
Yes, and now you can flame *me*.
h2k, I agree. Does that count as a flame?
I read most of the comments below (recent ones) to be on your side of the fence, rather than the other.
