tom1234567: I must have upset the SONY FANBOYS
saying it needs a 24meg aps-c sensor,

so they say it can not be done it would have to be bigger,
they could do it and make it smaller technologies are already here to do this,

yes they built the first computer in a room almost the size of a room.
now they can put more power in an iPhone.
Now Hear This don't say it can't be done your just being silly.

RX10ii IS A VIDEO CAMERA NOT A photographers camera
sorry to all the Sony Fan boys

the FZ 1000 IS BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY AT £499

a friend of mine bought the Sony RX10ii camera used it for 3days, now on its way back to shop, photos to much noise at 200iso never mind going higher with the iso.
Have a nice day

??? @Tom. The only person who seems bothered is you, breathe man. =)

Owning two RX10s, and have rented FZ1000s for its 4K capabilities for the past eight months, they have all performed well during our Wedding video stints. The FZ1000 is not as good as the Sony in low light videos and both have similar Photo characteristics. In that regards, I can recover more DR in the Sony than the Panasonic. Just rented the RX10M2 today and I really expect it to perform similarly with the stellar RX10. With the 4K and 16.8MP photos while capturing vid is a boon for weddings. If the claimed faster fly-by-wire zoom and focusing holds true, this will be fun over the weekend. =)

nikon power: These advanced cameras should be a threat to pro photographers. There will be no need for skills in making perfect shots.

Yup, I keep hearing that. The perfect picture needs the best camera. I could most likely cover a wedding with an iPhone (with some struggle) and the output would still be great. ;-) In fact, beware of the photographer who advertises herself saying "I carry high end equipment" as her opening spin.

Nukunukoo: -3EV for Phase Detect accuracy threshold? That's hard to believe and I would like more replicatable tests with different fast lens. Because if the A7Rm2 can constantly perform like that with a bright lens, I will know what my next wedding gear will be!

And since I do have legacy lenses. How do adapters factor in with this kind of performance? It's not as simple cut but the review does tell a tale.

In fact, low light focusing is the holy grail in my line of work. Different lenses DO behave differently, in fact even the lens' OS affects it overall performance. How the low-light capability and behaviour of the Sony's sensor (on PD) perform in a more consistemt and repeatable manner still needs more investigation.

bluevellet. EXACTLY! Since we only have one review and setup to see this, it's not enough to make a fully informed decision (unless you're a fanboi, any spin will do). In wedding photography, indoor low light is a given and you only get one shot at many moments. using a flash with diffusers will solve many low-light issues but don't really look that good in many printed situations.

Your reply is basically that my reaction for such a gleaming AF performance on the unit is nil because a single review says so.

Yes. Ever heard of DOF? The focus range of a f/1.4 at 85mm is vastly different from 35mm and can affect not only AF accuracy but speed as well. Because the light transmission of an 85mm may be slightly less, the same lens very narrow range can break low light focusing in many systems. And did I SPECIFICALLY say 1.4? I clearly said Fast Lenses and I did tell you the context based on the article's footnote. Only you still insist on this 1.4 value.

RPJG... your comment does not make sense. Read my original post. You WERE the one specific on Apertures when I clearly mentioned *different* lenses. I am not obligated to define what factors make different glass. You started the specificity of all f/1.4 being equal which is clearly not. Kindly understand the context and kindly not reply off a tangent.

I agree. This is all about stating that light characteristics in different lenses involves more than just one factor. In fact, because AF is being discussed, even zoom factors (DOF) in lenses can significantly affect AF speed and accuracy. To paraphrase RPJG: "any f/1.4 lens should give the same results..." is inaccurate.

The issue has nothing to do with a stop, a half stop, or whatever a fraction thereof. It is irrelevant. What is relevant is how it performs consistently on low light with different lens setups, as indicated by the article's footnote (4). Or, more to the point, is the level of performance repeatable regardless of lenses that would testify to the sensor's performance. I am not dissing Sony, in fact, I'm looking for more justification to invest in it.

I did read the article and the results were Uber fantastic, thus the comment. Replicatable with different lenses and different copies of the A7Rm2 is warranted. And if you do pro photography, you would know that different lenses at the same settings can behave differently. Apertures, even at the same settings do not necessarily mean another model gets the same amount of light at the same aperture. This is why we have tests for Light Transmission, which is more a function of glass architecture and formula than iris opening.

Nukunukoo: FINALLY. If you were to think short-term, many possible non-conforming triggers will be defunct. But that does not mean they will be useless. It just means that the next lighting acquisition will be way more headache-free (theoretically) and who knows? There could be legacy adapters.

All we need now is a common standard for APS-C and Full Frame mounts...

Flange distance is significantly different with the Mirrorless E-Mount. That's why adapters are still needed. For example, if Nikon creates an E-Mount equivalent, the bayonet would be extended anyways, better to sell an adapter that fully supports the lens' electronics, in theory, a better adapter would make that lens dual purpose.

Jefftan: of all these type of camera available now

Panasonic GM1 is the best for price and IQ (both sensor and lens excellent). This is my judgement. You guys can choose to believe or not

Not bothered by picture IQ. It's the video that's important to me right now. Then again, the RX10 II would be THE better choice for that. =)

drivecancel: I bought a Fujifilm X100 used and upgraded it to FW 2.0 instead of buying an RX100, looking at the studio tests I made the right choice! (had to use X100S results)

This has got to be the most uninformed post yet.
