Τhe shape of things to come...
From the other hand it's just an achievement of miniaturization...
Nothing more than that...

His comments and opinion show a good listener for those who can read under the lines.
A pro who will have the job done...

The usual "f**k" comments are always making my day...!

Pana's FZ 1000 is miles ahead than competition.
Btw... In compact cams scene comparison test it's clear for everyone to see the know how of manufacturers to produce the highest level of matching their lenses and sensors capabilities as well and their tricks and efforts to produce a pleasant result for their brand victims customers even if they have nothing essential to offer, just for filling up the gap of their line up. Good news for Sony here as, to my opinion, follows a descent path compared to Canicon's proposals. But news for Sony is that RX 10 II is silly overpriced, too silly...

I have no doubt that it is an excellent machine.
But if Epson and all all printer manufacturer will not solve the problem of ink cost they will see, if they already haven't, their sales to shrink more and more.
It's funny but 14 ml of ink cost pennies while the tank costs huge times more.So to my opinion they have to produce an external device accommodating all their inks in more than 250ml containers. I prefer to pay the device separately thus having a reduced ink cost than to pay 8 to 17 euros per color (the fifth time you buy a full set of inks, it's the same as buying a new printer). I call this partnership, not consumables purchase. Otherwise they can sell their printers for a symbolic price and keep their prices as they are.
I own an Epson photo printer (RX800) and a new ink set costs me 120 euros with average consumption 1 ink set * containers) for 25 full A4 prints in top quality (i.e 4,8 euros per print). I haven't printed a single page, not photo, for 2 years.

In reply to:

joyclick: Sony is obsessed being different,unique and bent upon doing something world shaking at every other turn,their history is full of irksome quirks,irritants and in general 'pain'

While they have contributed immensely to digital imaging they still have not managed to give us one damn good camera that is a total satisfaction,'period'

Well, Sony is always Sony.
I still remember RGBE sensors (someone there has something with greens), proprietary audio file formats, the video battle against Philips, some interventing features(?) in their cellphones and minidisks, stopping production of some of its finest products replacing them with similar with less features, obsession retaining its duo storage device etc...
In the name of innovation turned consumers to testbeds.
Well, they all do it and who they don't never had something "unique" in their hands. But in Sony this style tends to be an obsession.
Consequently, any returns to consumer's benefit is rather low. That is why their products usually have a high manufacturing quality. I say that to their perception aftermarket care is time wasted and therefore overpriced.
I think that Apple and Adobe are somehow like minded companies for their own reasons.

In reply to:

oselimg: 42 million pixels and 50 million pixels respectively and more than 3K price tags some people still compare the jpeg engines. Internet forums have produced incredible amount of "experts"

Opinions and aspects reflecting authoritative, purist and (in this case) pixel peeping point of view are disgusting and make me quite suspicious for the psychological health of their authors.

Ι am impressed, to say the least...
Best in terms of definition and noise than any FF cam listed in DPR and not by a tiny margin... Awesome sensor... Amazing jpg engine...
The usual slight shift in red green color rendition compared to Nikon E810 and more accurate whites rendition than Canon 5DS R, less charming than Leica Q.
Lens only behind from Leica's Q whose sense of plasticity is simply superb.
Chapeau to Sony, although I was never a fan to your proposals so far par one.
Great job..!
An overall killer, light and not bulky as competitors at an appealing price which may loose some hundreds in the shop...
The most serious approach of mirrorless concept so far.

Cam's performance is great, lens is a killer, yet a silly overpriced package...

I do not pay any respect to all those who consider their opinion as an expert or specialist opinion just because they shoot some pix, the same way I would not pay any respect to the guy who paints my room and feels that he has an authoritative opinion for the work of Leonardo, Picasso, Dali, Turner (to name but a few), just because he can use a brush. Full stop.
Full stop.

The only weight behind my words is that they are facts...
Not opinion, not a point of view, not belief, not whatever....

On article Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras (455 comments in total)

I think that most people here cannot see the real dimensions of what Sony means to people, in terms of brand awareness and acceptance etc. One thing Sony actually sells: its name, its brand. No matter what it is. If something can make profit Sony will go for it, if not it will leave it behind (monitors). That is why it left the Minolta badge.
Canikons guys seem to be rather vulnerable at this time for a lot of reasons, not necessarily because of their numbers as companies or whatsoever. Sony's heavy gun power is advertisement and communication mainly based upon its brand's image to audience that other competitors cannot approach with the slight exception of Panasonic.
Sony's technological approach for a product is that its excellence should make profit, otherwise it will remain in a drawer. And they can do that with great efficiency. Canikons simply cannot.
Things gonna be harsh for all competitors.

Ι like those ideas from tax hunters all over the world...
The next step is Greece to claim rights in all languages for using Greek etymology words -say 1 cent for a 100 such words- used in media or books and we will pay back our debt in less than a year... Even the etymology of the word stop shows it's a Greek word... Huray!!!
