Just a Photographer: GOLD!Are you serious????
- Autofocus can be slow in low light- Its autofocus system nails focus MOST of the time...- Long viewfinder blackout time- Longer-than-average startup times- Short battery life- Camera 'locks up' while buffer is clearing after continuous shooting- Menu arrangement poor - Limited selection of FE lenses
These are really BIG issues not something to be overlooked by serious photographers. Still giving this camera a 'gold' status seems to me like Sony paid DPreview to give it this status.
Serious photographers use $5000 MF lenses, so AF speed in irrelevant in that category. You want a high speed AF? Just buy a freaking 7D. Also, good luck with nailing focus on it with a 50/0.95.
McJ: If this was a dslr, it would have been panned as the worst performing camera of the last 10 years. But since it's mirrorless, it magically gets "gold".
I will probably buy this camera myself as a slow digital back for my 30+ year old primes, but I feel sorry for those that buy this as a general purpose camera because it got "gold" in this test.
The world's most expensive lenses are not autofocus. I guess you think they exhibit bad performance too?
Unbelievable! This camera deserves way more than 80%!
felix-nadar: When can we expect the next step: thetering on tablet through wireless connexion ? That will be really great !
I just finished developping exactly that. I am posting video demos soon.
Oh, and its Open Source. :)
