Zakzoezie: I think they forgot to mention some Pros : It is not overheating, it shoots lossless compressed RAW files, it does not "eat" stars at night and it has decent battery life without the need to carry a bunch of backup batteries. I know, we got maybe a little spoiled over the past few decades on these really important basic values in photography, but that does not mean we should "forget" all these important points in the Pros list ... Just joking guys, just joking. Calm down, calm down ;o)

I have yet to go through more than a single battery in a day of shooting an A7 camera in a casual manner. Unless you're a pro, shooting thousands of frames with large telephotos that eat up battery in order to move the massive glass elements then battery life will not be an issue. Claims like this are pretty much FUD

I see a hipster in the ad and I click away.

OlyPent: All it means is Nikon is trying to KILL one the main attributes (for many) of mirrorless: The ability to use all kinds of lenses from other makers and other eras.

Except we don't know whether this combo is meant for a fixed- or interchangeable lens camera..

I approve of this.

We are witnessing the slow death of once a descent photo company. It's painful to watch

In reply to:

GarysInSoCal: I'm starting to wonder just how much money Sony is slipping DPReview (under the table) to do 6 different front page showcase articles on this camera in less than 2 months... and OH PALEEEEEEZE... with it's crappy dynamic range... it's neither working wonders or shetting blunders... :P

What other flagship cameras were released this year?

Link | Posted on May 22, 2017 at 23:10 UTC

The year of the lenses indeed. Thank you Sony, please continue.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: It seems to me that the biggest problem that Sony faces with this camera has nothing to do with what the can do (which is right up there with the best), but with all the badmouthing from threatened Canikon owners. And there are many of them.

If you're not threatened, why the outrage? Simply ignore the Sony articles.

Oh my goodness, so why would you as a seasoned pro sports photographer consider switching to A9 from your workhorse 1DX or D5? You simply wouldn't. This is the technology of tomorrow. It will be continuously refined over the next several years. You have a job to shoot today. Don't pour your sweat and tears into the DPReview comment section trying to defend one thing or another, it's not worth the effort because you are simply not affected by anything Sony does.

In reply to:

Dorkooken: Too bad Sony only releases new camera's and not offering any new updates to the older models like A7(r)(II) like Fuji "Kaizen" does....

I'm sure they could give the update menu, new AF improvements,etc... to current customers...
That's a reason I would hesitate to buy a new Sony next time...

You bought your camera because you were satisfied with its performance at the time of purchase. Otherwise you wouldn't have bought it. Did the new model somehow make your camera perform worse to make you feel entitled to an update? Let's be serious for a minute. I'm not aware that Sony advertises these products as upgrade-able anywhere in their literature or announcements. You pay for what's in the box at the time of purchase. There can be an expectation of critical bug fixes but not anything beyond. AF performance is dependent on the sensor as much as it is on anything else.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (767 comments in total)

Can Sony compete with Canon and Nikon? You are having a laugh. Open up your Nikon camera, it has a Sony digital imager inside it. Your Olympus? Your Panasonic? Your Fuji? Your smartphone? And soon your Canon. Sony carries the entire industry.

In reply to:

cmc1: In all seriousness though and I know this is a gear forum and all, but if you can't compose and master light, these spec's mean sh*t!.

you just know the Sony Forum will be full of hummingbird images, flower images, bloody cat images, and someones morbidly obese mom at a family gathering images when this thing comes out. Look at Canon and Nikon 1D's and D5 posts, not many, why? cus these folk are out trying to earn a crust with their cameras, not seeing how sharp the right eye of their cat looks from 2 feet away!

The mastery of light and composition is not a requirement for earning a crust with your camera equipment. Seems like you are confusing the two concepts.

The most exciting part about this announcement is not really the A9 itself, which most of us are not in the market for, but the new sensor and electronic shutter technology that will most certainly make its way into the next A7 camera iterations. I absolutely cannot wait!

In reply to:

cosinaphile: i wouda been all over these cameras if they had the sense to offer short flange distance like mirrorlesss should .... it could have been done with a dedicated adapter supplied with the camera that could have provided 2 flange distances to allow adapted lenses to be used with this innovative detail rich sensor

another to use the sigma long flange lens type with af

Exactly my thoughts OP. I have no interest in getting into the Sigma SA mount lenses as I suspect is the case for the majority of people

No fake smiles, no missed focus because you had to shoot with your expensive 85 at 1.4, no dramatic lighting to hide half of the face, no makeup. Simplicity at its finest. And the outrage is ok because good photographs are supposed to evoke emotions are all.

Soft-wide open at close focusing distances with weird halos around edges. Classic Fuji. Love it.

In reply to:

TinyTempo: I think in 5-7 years the smartphone cameras + software will be so powerful that it'll replace most (if not all) so-called professional cameras. Imagine taking a picture and being able to modify the depth of field afterwards, without any meaningful differences to bigger sensors and fast lenses and probably even different bokeh options. It will happen.

In 5-7 years full frame sensors will be so cheap manufacturers will have to create sub $500 digital FF point and shoots just to offload their aging inventories. Whatever you can achieve with a small sensor, you can make better with a larger sensor. People who know what they want will not settle for the inferior solution.
