Photoman: -Struggles to maintain focus on moving subjects

I thought Olympus would have fixed this by now. That is why I sold my EM-5, case it is fast on single focus, but not very good on moving objects (video tracking was terrible!)

That doesn't make a difference, if the focus moves around like a drunk man. It just was not made to focus on moving objects ( and not even moving fast!)

vscd: ...now let's add a new Canon Body to this lens. I hope the next 5D (Mark IV) will close the gap to Sony, sending it to where it belongs... to the grave of history ;) Bodies come and go, glass stays.

On Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study article (369 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sdaniella: WOW. this well lit night street light shot was NOT exposed ETTR for highlights at all @ ISO 100. Whilst ALL fake-shadows in ISO 100 may have been pushed recovered (de-faked; uncooking cooked RAW) in pp, but the real shadows REMAIN very BLACK (unrecoverable), all blown highlights remain blown (store display was normally lit, yet poorly, and grossly OVER-EXPOSED).

this is a perfect example of confusing users of fake high DR using pre-cooked high contrast where the faux blacks are overlayed on top as fake ISOs are 'simulated'.

thus, Sony (and by extension Nikon, others), never really have true exposure simulation (nor real ISOs = ISO-less = ISO Invariance = in-camera ISO 'faking'). they are likely just making do with an actual fixed ISO 1600-3200 (judging by noise) sensor, and simulating ISO (cooking RAW with numerically adjustable shadow overlay = removable in post of course)

a sensor showing true uncooked RAW is by far much flatter looking, and easier to gauge blowouts or shadows

@Rishi LOL!

tektrader: Its ENORMOUS, How is that micro 4/3rds ???

For a camera that size and lenses that big it may as well be full frame..

I second that. I preferred my old EM-5 to this and my Sony's offer a big sensor than this.

@Rishi I think Sdaniella is a Canon fan boy and/or paid troll and is jealous of Sony's new tech. Maybe he/she believes the world is still flat...

Maybe delayed due to having the same faulty lens barrel as the first version or maybe the lens mount falls off. The first version was great quality, but the lens barrel issues was terrible. Also the first version can't be repaired, as for some reason Nikon have to replace the whole lens barrel. Weird.

CameraLabTester: Barely a week into its existence... The AP channel has a clip of an Alaska Bear injuring an Australian Tourist as the most watched video, so far, with 186,000 views in just 2 days!

The internet is a strange and unpredictable universe.

The Aussie was probably drunk and calling a bear a idiot...damn drunk Ozzies ;P

srados: 50$ el cheapo Chinese camera does the same job...yes sometimes quality is off but for 50$ I do not ask questions, do not need 500$ dash cam.150-200$ you can get a decent one.

Do you mean the SJ4000-SJ6000 cameras?

Photoman: Imagine if it had current Sony sensors in it today.

@oseling I just meant if it had today's tech, how much better would the images be. We need to make a faster ion drive :)
