Paul Guba: Comparing two cameras with similar sensors is like comparing two cars with V8 engines. The 645Z and the Alpa are two completely different machines. I won't justify the huge price difference but at the same time you can't compare the two as tools. Phase also has better software and years of experience getting the best data from a sensor. There both great cameras but the similarity ends at MP.

Btw few days ago I was looking at the pix shot with Canon, Leica and Hassie lenses mounted ib various bodies and I practically picked out the who is who of the manufacturer of each lens. I can't really explain how I do it, I just trust my eyes, which is not a scientific explanation (lol). Maybe it's just my idea, but it works for me (benefits still uknown - lol again)!

@Mescalamba:
You forgot to mention Silkypix (lol)...
What I am trying to tell is that there is not a lot of people comprehending the differences between chromaticity, hue, chrominance, colour or definition and sharpening or micro contrast you name it. I guess that for a real enthusiast/pro these terms, even as adjectives to words having to do with colour parameters may not sound "chinese", but please let me have my, at least, light doubts about it. (I also guess that pixel peepers rarele have to do with such terms).
Software as LR seem that they offer a more comprehensive approach and this is a credit for the guys they created it.

I really don't know a lot of people who can take the full out of Phase raw conversion software. It is too scientific for a lot of people I know. As a software seems to be the best out there though, it has delivered great results with Canon's D1s III files, really astonishing.

Save the forests!
Stop using wooden grips..!

Seriously now, are there out there more than a hundred guys who, for some reasons -no matter what these reasons may be - need such a system?

Some 10 years ago I had purchased some images from fotolia, I t took me more than an hour to find something descent that I liked. At least I found something that I could use. Very low quality at those days.Good prices though. I haven't checked them out, since now.

In reply to:

aris14: Heavily overpriced.

I would say the same no matter if I had a dozen Hassies or a Kodak instamatic 133x.
Btw I have used almost all the heavy guns out there, Pana FZ 30 is just my baby and my "weapon" (just for the fun of it) against all my pro friends who I serve with my advice if needed in a lot of fields regarding photography both as science and art.
Furthermore I am very happy for I don't have to buy them these new staff. For a lot of reasons.

PS: Thx for looking at my gallery.

In reply to:

aris14: We should not forget that since Sony bought out Minolta has done enough progress. It pushes Canicons to a more niche market share.
Have also in mind that some Rokkor lenses are exceptional and can be used in those Sonys.
Oh! Consider a plus that Sonys seem to be more sophisticated using less moving parts than any Canikons.
And something else. The pp software seems that has done more progress than camera technology in the last 5 years thus allowing even cameras in the entry level segment (not to mention 4/3, M43 or some great P&S) to embarrass some FF's results in a lot of cases.

Ι think it does because of its size and its ability in market penetration. Minolta never had such a potential no matter its know how.
While the other players hold more or less their presence in the market plus the fact that Panasonic entered dynamically the photographic market it's rather clear that both Canikons will gradually tend to the pro market, at least to my perception.
Their brand names are more than good for that.

I can hardly see how your images have to do with market share.
Furthermore I didn't read anything having to do with Rokkor lenses or pp software progress.
Thx for your reply.
Be well.

Disguise and deception have a price, but IMHO this bag's styling is totally indifferent.

Pls make this simple test.
Take the 5-5 top cams of a certain category.
Choose 5 or 6 nice spots.
Have a tripod.
Shoot the same spot with one cam after another.
Post the results w/o writing which cam's pic is each pic on the list.
Let us enjoy.
Thx in advance

On Enthusiast interchangeable lens camera 2013 roundup article (468 comments in total)

A cam test or whatever product test is a compromise of a lot of factors.
Suppose a cam has superior IQ, but has a plastic body with average or poor ergonomics. it gets a 10/10 in IQ and 6/10 in the latter. The average is an 8/10 overall, etc etc...
What I am saying is that it should be a point of view in judging overall.
Connoisseurs can read clearly what they really want to find, others can't.

aris14: Well I am glad because if these cams were introduced some 3 or 4 years ago their sensors would count 24 Megapixels at least...
The Megapixel battle seemed it stopped in cams and continues in smartphones with new victims the ignorant numbers lovers who usually don't use their phones as phones...
The same old story/pattern of accessible break-throughs from the masses...

There must be always an exception or two for justifying the rule...
As simple as that...
