No love for E mount or MFT anymore? That's disheartening :(
All I want are some F1.8 speed 24 & 35mm E mount primes for ~$500 a pop. I think that is possible, no?
If Sony would make a wide angle for the 24 1.8Z I think I would have to buy one.
sportyaccordy: Gold award? For what?
The A7 also ranks (a LOT) lower than this, despite being a revolutionary camera, having the same ergonomics, better (non-low light) IQ, etc.
For all folks griping about DxO's methodologies, they are at least more objective and somewhat consistent compared to what goes on here, based on this review.
I'm definitely curious to see how this will compare to the 5DS/R...
I get that video is a big part of photography now, especially at 4K resolution. But this is still Digital PHOTOGRAPHY Review, and in that regard the A7S clearly falls short, even at the thing it's supposed to specialize in. I suppose if the GH4 got a gold award, despite having a similar imbalance, it's consistent.... but the A7R is ranked lower despite having better overall IQ and the same ergonomics. I just don't get it

When are you guys gonna finish this review? It was started in 2014 despite the "February 2015" dateline
ragmanjin: I'd be curious to see how it compares to the equivalent Samyang, they've been getting some good reviews as well.
That's too bad, though I understand. I have MF lenses now but no viewfinder. I'm hoping a viewfinder will make MF easier otherwise I'm done with it as well
Yes, Samyang has a 24 1.4 that covers the full frame image circle.
sportyaccordy: Sony should answer with a phone version of the RX1
I meant RX100.

Looks like an MF body. Beefy
babart: Why did they not make an adapter to use all their other lenses with?
Not sure what the author meant when he said it was hard to find, it's in stock and available everywhere. Admittedly it doesn't work very well.
Hopefully the M4 will have a humped EVF and come to the states. Based on what the M3 costs I will probably still take my chances with a used A7
sportyaccordy: Looks good. Wish it had a viewfinder though. That's a deal breaker for me. Maybe they will make a follow up to the NX30?
Yea the more I dig into it the more of a conundrum there appears to be. NX1 appears to be an NX30 with the new BSI sensor for 3x the body price. They have the same 2.3MP viewfinder. Def curious to see what Samsung does next with this sensor.

sportyaccordy: I still think an array of smaller sensors would work better. 4 1/2.3" sensors adds up to 1 1" sensor. Plus you would be able to get much more resolution and probably more light transmission by breaking up each sensor to a color (i.e. CMYK). Would be cheaper to make and more versatile than this as well. Just a matter of time
That's OK, it's a lot less serious to me than it is to you.
You could argue that, but it wouldn't be true. The non-linear relationship between sensor size and area is well known to anyone with a clue.
Multiple smaller sensors yielding the same total area would be cheaper than an equivalent larger sensor. Sensor area vs cost has a near exponential relationship.
And yes, several monochromatic sensors would have less chromatic abberations than a single sensor covering all colors. Again simple optics.
Pedantry.... when all else fails and you have nothing of substance to argue.
More logical fallacies. Smaller sensors are cheaper to make than larger ones. This is camera economics 101. A monochromatic sensor with a dedicated lens (i.e. no 3CCD stuff) yields more resolution and is less susceptible to optical issues like abberrations. Optical physics 101. Etc. etc. If you want to discuss why I'm wrong then break down exactly what you disagree with rather than trying to attack my language or wording because my ideas make you uncomfortable in ways you can't explain/argue against.
Sure I did. I'm not going to argue points I never made though, like the idea that I could "out invent" a camera manufacturer.
