bicycle snap shooter: Intense snap of Steve Huff...like the way his face seems to be lit by the screen of his smart phone.
I think I'll pass on Huff Paranormal...so it will remain "Steve Who?" for me. NEXT!
Oh good...a camera that I can use when wearing my brown jacket, brown pants and matching brown shoes. If I am taking pictures, I want to look my best when doing so!!!!!!!!!
MeganV: It's pretty . . . but for the price it needs to really push the bar, functionally.
Is the sensor really better than what we've had since 2012? It's gonna be hard to see the difference between 16 and 20 megapixels, so how has dynamic range or low-light performance improved? Is this the m4/3 camera that finally bumps us to a 14-bit RAW pipeline from a sensor that can actually detect 14 bits of gradation?
And AF: Olympus has had quick & accurate single-shot AF for five years, now--so where are we with subject tracking and continuous performance?
And no 4K?
Honestly, I think Oly's gonna have a hard time moving these. B&H is now selling the original (weather sealed, 5-axis IBIS) E-M5 for $379. Is this camera $800 and 4 years better? Feels a little stalled, to me. I'd buy the E-M5 and put the $800 difference into lenses.
The E-M5 for $379 is one heck of a bargain! Old sensor? YAWN. Old LCD and EVF? YAWN. No "ART" dial in the front of the camera? LOL. It's not like the E-M5 sucked..it was and remains one heck of a camera. Everyone looking for the latest and greatest tech..LOL. Spend more time actually taking picture AND use that cash saved for enabling lenses!!! Too much GAS for me at dpreview..
Goll dang, what a tough crowd. Talk about nattering nanobs of negativity. LOL
Nice pics Barney...thx for the share.
Geekapoo: YAWN...no RAW, no interest. Tsk tsk Canon.
Well,mi am obviously not the only person who dismisses the camera because it lacks RAW. Given the specs, you'd want that additional information (not compressed) to tweak images via PP. More important, from a competitive standpoint...Canon cannot compete cause no RAW
You can hear a loud sucking sound as you drive by Canon HQ. Obviously the powers that be at Canon don't know that it's not what you've done...but what you have done lately. Sad to watch a company in such an obvious decline..

zakk9: After 5 years with Panasonic mirrorless, 5 years that ended a year ago when I sold it all and replaced it with a D810, there would be only one reason to stay with mirrorless for me: One can shoot video while looking through the viewfinder. Apart from that, the question for me is: Why do I need mirrorless when DSLR cameras offer such a great shooting experience with optical live view through the viewfinder? Because the electronic giant corporations want me to? Not me!
100% agree. Own a Panasonic G3 and an Olympus OMD E-M5 plus an assortment of lenses. Liked my m43 cameras more than a Sony A7ii (low light AF was pretty bad) but upon my purchase of a D750...it's the camera to beat. Mirror-less? Zzzzzzzzz. Maybe in 3-5 years but say that begs the question.....WHY?
Well, I'm thanking Nikon for the D750 as many months later, it continues to rock my world as the most enjoyable and best camera I've ever owned !
$1,300? Forgetaboutit. Next!
I feel sorry for people who own the earlier A7 releases. Not really clear to me why the A7 was released...such a transitional camera. Oh yea, I forgot...they released it for the $$$ and the dissatisfaction folks would have comparing to dSLRs or when the next gen A7 cameras came out
Geekapoo: I thought Sony had hyped the A7ii as having 40% better AF than the A7. Does this mean the A7Rii is like the A7ii with respect to focus capabilities?
Was the A7 and A7R AF considered equivalent? If so, the A7ii and A7Rii 40% better AF would be equivalent, right? = less than stellar low light AF..that's what I'm waiting for clarification on and assume it will only become clear upon review of the camera by various review sites. Cheers.
Maybe...but I "pit" the A7ii versus even my m43 cameras and the AF was pretty poor by comparison....and yes, I was surprised! I now own a D750...the AF versus the A7ii? No comparison...and yes, I was surprised!!!!
Thanks RubberDials..."hype" was the wrong word. My concern is that the A7 to A7ii 40% better AF was still pretty bad, even my m43 cameras are better (low light). Is Sony pitching that the A7R to A7Rii 40% better AF means that A7ii AF = A7Rii AF? If so, that's still quite substandard versus most of the dSLRs Sony is competing with

Well, whatever the problems encountered...the good news is that Nikon is being proactive in addressing issues. More important, the D750 is one heck of a camera and I'm enjoying it's capabilities tremendously. Thanks Nikon!!!
Geekapoo: LOL....no RAW so I'm not going to even bother going any further than this post. NEXT!
LOL....don't need to be schooled about RAW (but obviously you do). Sold my Sony HX200V for a Panasonic FZ200 for the RAW...huge difference. You should try a camera where you capture JPEG and RAW...and then PP both files. I don't need to search the forms for info...I'm living and learning from the experience. To each their own but for me again, no RAW = a non-starter re being considered for my camera collection. You want to shoot JPEG (especially with a tiny sensor?) Cool! Enjoy!!! Cheers.
Blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda...it slices, it dices, an absolutely remarkable carnera......BUT NO RAW.
