    If you were shopping for a Full Frame digital camera with interchangeable lenses, what are your options, YSP? D610, 6D, D800, 5D Mark III. Or do you have another recommendation?

    Because noise-reduction on is the default. Furthermore, it's called High ISO Noise reduction, so it should not apply to ISO 100 - but it does, apparently. If you turn it off, the noise goes up.

    The A99 is hidden? http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-slt-a99/

    Exactly. "Cons" isn't short for "condemnations," it's a list of possible disadvantages we thought people should know about so they can make their own decision. When we don't mention certain items,...

    We have to really enjoy using it. Read this: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/4416254604/camera-scores-ratings-explained

    Image quality wasn't strictly the issue we referred to. It was poor handling of JPEGs, with an emphasis on posterization due to Sony's uniquely aggressive anti-noise processing.

    Please read the Pros sections, not just the Cons. Cons are not meant to condemn, they are offered for your consideration.

    Silver is not pathetic. 80% is also quite good. We did not judge it based on its performance with third party lenses; indeed, we praised its adaptability.

    The posterization problem occurs at ISO 100. All our examples for that issue are shot at that level.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7 Review preview

    That was in reference to power-on time. We'll see about re-phrasing that.

    I don't recall saying anything about sharpening halos, and I don't recall sharpening halos being an issue in Sony's past processing. It's the overaggressive noise processing we didn't like, now and...

    I got the sarcasm. It's the assumption that we put in cons that we don't like the camera. There are cons to every camera, and only some of them will apply depending on the individual. Since we...

    The points do not determine the award. The points are relative to other cameras in its class, as new boyz said.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7 Review preview

    Where did you read awful or crappy? We do not give silver awards to such cameras. Reread.

    No confusion here. We wrote what we thought, and stand by it. Having used and reviewed hundreds of cameras, we know about getting used to a camera and took that into consideration. Note that we say...

    We mention it on the experience page. It's not quite as loud as the a7R, but still has a long duration. It's half as long with the electronic shutter mode enabled.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview

    Actually ISO 50, 64, and 80 are available as well. Our specs table shows only the non-expanded ISO settings.

  • Peter, we did just review the Vanguard Abeo Pro tripod with the grip/ball head. http://www.dpreview.com/articles/8202649496/vanguard-abeo-pro-tripod-kit
