  • Honestly for such a requirement just get a Nikon J1 (they sell for $399 maybe and get a 10mm f2.8 lens (28mm equivalent).

    Will easily satisfy your requirement.

    However there is zero option out...

  • While you are mostly correct, Sony does have an excellent 18-105mm f4 OSS power zoom lens for their ILC cameras. They are now launching a 28-135mm f4 power zoom for the full frame models.

  • As I said Nikon isn't a video company for one. And two they already made their bed with the 1 series launch. They don't want their mirrorless cameras competing with their DSLR lineup in any way.

  • That is the D810. :)

    Ok not entire comparable but a video centric camera from Nikon.

    The thing is Nikon has no real experience with video like Canon, Sony and Panasonic have. So they will...

  • Commented on ISO6400_DSC_4805 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Ill admit its much better than I imagined but look at the right side of the image and you can see the heavy handed noise reduction smearing away detail till there are these blotches.

    Also the...

  • Your requirement MUST be video. Else you wouldn't really compare a 35mm camera with a quarter frame camera like the highly video centric GH4.

  • Agree with Thematic.

    The OP would make a lot of sense if we were investing in property or some other big ticket financial instrument. Definitely NOT for a camera that is used largely by amateurs...

  • Nope, but the A7s is just ONE camera. ALL the other Sony cameras use the AVCHD 2.0 codec which has low bitrates and generally low quality videos.

    And you can't compare a RX100 III to a 35mm...

  • The Metabones adapter works but AF is mediocre that its practically useless. Neither m43 or Canon/Nikon will ever make an adapter like Metabones.

  • Sony is hardly class leading in video DSLRs. I use Sony and while I like the still image quality its video quality sucks. Canon is far far ahead even without hacks.

    Hopefully this Nikon will help...

  • No word on the video bitrate which is currently a Canon strong point.

    If the bit rate is still 28 MBps then this camera won't be able to successfully compete with the 5D Mk III.

  • You must be comparing it to the non VC model.

    Tamron has a 28-300mm VC model as well which is slightly bigger than this lens.

    Unfortunately these third party guys have a ton of these superzooms...

  • Its the MSRP. Street prices will be lower.

  • ^^ Agreed. Leica lenses are expensive but you do get a reasonably priced ones if you are willing to buy used.

    You are correct about the Metabones adapter for Canon lenses. AF is not really...

  • ^^ Well the correct statement is they don't don't have real fast AF prime lenses. Rokinon offers quite a few fast prime lenses are really nice prices for the Sony FE mount. 24mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4,...

  • Generally any mirrorless lens > 70mm or so will lose the size advantage of DSLR lenses.

    So the Fuji 50-200mm is heavier and as big as say a Canon 55-250mm IS . Sure the Fuji lens is 1/3rd of a...

  • Well the Sony FE system is FF but and their bodies are pretty close to Fuji in size but the lenses are more expensive.

  • Fully agree. Or else they will end up like Sony. 3 camera systems but none of them are really complete systems.

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    ^^ No, a vast majority of A mount customers like me will transition to a proper system like Canon or Nikon rather than go for a crappy NEX system. Using an expensive LA-EA4 adapter just to use my A...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    Not really. Its a myth that greater pixels must also mean more noise. The A6000 measures better than the earlier Sony 16 MP NEX6 in noise....
