... if we just cut out all the nonsense above, this would be a quieter forum and you wouldn't feel it necessary to create new sub-forum organization.

My vote remains: Please create a SONY FORUM ORGANIZATION SUBFORUM

... but leave all the others as-is.

ssroute, You have the substance of over 2,000 posts and a good sense of humor. But you do miss the point.

When this E forum reverts from a full page to a mere 7 posts, contrasted with the same page filled with 50 FF posts, along with 3 posts misguidedly pushing 4/3 issues, it's time for DPR to rethink its forum strategy. Go over and read the Nikon forums; they have divisions much like many of us are suggesting. It would be reasonable and workable for Sony to have 4 forums. If it's possible and practical to have a 5th dual forum for common FF and APSc issues such as lenses, do that too, but I have a feeling that would be over the top. So let's settle for 4 forums.

In some ways NEXers must be thankful DPR has listened but not exterminated this thread. NEXers don't speak from what a few suggest is an inferiority complex. No, the 50 to 7 ratio should explain the problem.


Seems to me very few of the threads dealing with new FF cameras are worth reading since most talk issues like you've started vice real attributes/comparisons of the cameras. Many of the folks who are getting the A7(R)s are keeping a NEX body. I've learned so much from many of the regular posters on this site (including you, btw), would be sad to be no longer welcomed to the forum just because I added a body to my E-mount collection that some think should be excluded.


David, that's because it's still much too early to find much to discuss on the A7/r cameras. Because there are very few real examples of these new cameras in the hands of the public. They have not yet been thoroughly tested by reviewers and the normal process where new owners share their thoughts based on real-life experiences has not yet begun.

If, as some of us had originally advocated (months before DPR relegated FF to the NEX forum,) they had listened to us instead and relegated FF to a new/different forum, things would be much more peaceful all around.
