Re: Sony ergonomics, menu system, controls and colors ...


seems like I read quite a number of threads where folks jump ship from Sony for those specific 4 items.

if Sony can be a leader in such hi tech areas as sensor development and eye focus , why cant they get the hand grip, portrait color science and an intuitive menu system right ???

just to be clear … I am not saying these things - but just look for yourself on the other forums at the number of Sony owners reaching out as they are about to eBay their Sony systems and buy Nikon, Canon R or Fuji

I can only agree with FujLiver.

From my personal experience: (now A7RIV)

- Ergonomics is perfect

- menu system is no problem at all; once set up, you hardly ever need to dive deep into the menu system. Easy set up in only a few hours.

- controls ...layout, tactile feel and usefulness ...all perfect. Nothing less. I also like it, that almost every knob and dial can be set to personal taste.

- colours also great. I used to use " Leica M9" colour setting in DXO PL 3. Now I only use A7RIV setting. Much better. Beside that I only shoot raw. Oops... not true; for the time being, I use my second UHS-2 slot for Jpegs (but that might change into backup raw).

I also see quite a few Canon/Nikon/ Olympus users going to Sony, for different reasons.

To me, the A7RIV is the best camera I ever had (including your 4 items).
