Missing Canon R3 in this poll. Nikon Z9 and Sony A1 are both amazing cameras, but the R3 is the best allround camera in my opinion. It has the best dynamic range, 30 FPS in full RAW and the eye autofocus is a tech that nobody else have. The 24 MP sensor is much more flexible than the sensors in the Sony and Nikon in my opinion.

Autoxave: No doubt. AF better than Sony A1 😊

@manos234: Well, maybe people should also consider irony 😊

Eric Calabros: IS is not much necessary in this range, especially when IBIS is available. They could make it without IS and charge few hundred bucks less to make it affordable for more people. But what do I know.

I thought that IBIS was best for the shorter zoom ranges such as from 15 to 70 mm and that IS was best for telephoto zoom ranges...but I may be wrong.

Not impressive at all in the border of the frame

panther fan: "The upcoming model will debut a newly developed high-resolution stacked CMOS sensor"

That is surprisingly detailed information. And very good news!
Many feared Sony wouldn't sell their stacked sensor tech basically limiting Nikons potential to compete in the high end. Seems like that is not the case. This is great news and means we will see some real competition at the top. Great for everyone

@Matt_007 - really doubt that Nikon will fabricate this type of sensor, I don´t think they have the skills. And I also doubt that Sony is willing to sell this type of technology to a competitor, after all, the 24 MP stacked sensor (which is almost 2 years old by now) only exists in Sony cameras.

@Matt_007 - I do not think Nikon has ever physically made their own sensors. Is there any indications of this now?

How do you that the stacked sensor that Nikon is supposed to use is made by Sony?

The Sigma 100-400 seems to be a better option for the L-mount, both in terms of price and optical quality.

Mike160179: Just sold all my Leica gear after 20 years of loyalty. It is just a waste of money nowadays. Still loving all my 2 years old Nikon Z system. Goodbye Leica, you are just for doctors and lawyers who need to photograph flowers in the garden.

Mike160179: Seems like you regret selling your Leica..

On article Canon EOS R6 added to studio test scene (399 comments in total)

I know it is tough and maybe too much too ask for, but an effort to standardize the type and quality of the lenses that is used to convey the image quality may have improved the comparison between the cameras. The differences in image quality, for instance between the 1DX Mark III and the R6, is also due to the quality differences between the Canon RF 50/1.2 (top class RF optics with a modern optical design) and Canon EF 85/1.8 (not a top class 85 mm lens and with old lens technology). Unawareness of such issues may lead wrong conclusions.

In reply to:

yayatosorus: The R6 crop seems much sharper than the Z6's and 1DXIII's. Interestingly the 1DXII's crops seem sharper than the ones from the 1DXIII.
Either these are due to lens inconsistencies/vibrations etc or we really have to commend the IQ coming out of the RF lens used for this test.

The R6 is used with the RF 50/1.2 lens, maybe the best lens in the Canon RF line. The 1DX is used with the Canon EF 85/1.8. Not comparable in terms of sharpness.

On article DPReview TV: Sony 12-24mm F2.8 review (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

Autoxave: Very nice review and it seems to be a very good lens indeed. However, a 12-24 with a f/2.8, is a niche lens to capture some very special action images using f/2.8. I am not sure if it is advisable for landscape photography other than the fact that you get very good image quality (which can also be achived by other Sony lenses when stopped down). But does that potential gain in image quality justify the price tag?

Do you actually need f/2.8 for real estate or architectural photography? In my opinion you need to stop down anyway when approaching such images.

In reply to:

travelinbri_74: Thanks for the review, obviously a very impressive lens. While I get this lens gets to 12 whereas others do not - and there is no substituting for that - I would love to see a direct comparison with the Sigma 14-24/2.8. The more reviews I see the more I think the 14-24 weeks out a win in actual IQ.

Or maybe one can compare it to Canon 11-24.

Nikon need to produce their own sensors in order to narrow the technological distance to Sony and Canon. Additionally, they need to focus more on computational photography features to compete with Sony and Canon. Now Nikon have to wait 1-2 years before they can buy Sony sensors and Sony know very well how to utilize this time frame to acquire customers who are dissatisfied of Nikon.

In reply to:

chris80: Just having purchased a Z6, this is a bit of an unwelcome surprise. But then again, I am happy with the Z6, discounts are pretty good at the moment, and I can use it now, instead of in 6 months (or later). But maybe a Z7s would be a nice addition in a year or so, when prices come down, if performance (AF, fps) is significantly better than now.

I am just not sure how the integration of the double card slot and double processor will work, without making the body significantly larger. Olympus' M1 Mark III is quite a massive body for such a small M43 sensor, but they still were not able to fit the double processor like they did in the M1X (and went for an allegedly newer, but still slower single-processor setup). It's not only about fitting an additional processor, but you also have to deal with the additional heat.

Similar issue with the second card slot. Space seems to be quite tight in the Z6, but even more worrying is the temperature - even one CFE makes the grip feel quite warm.

EM1iii has a new and faster processor, not the same as the one in EM1X.

Foskito: Lots of Oscar-winning cinematographers ”pre-complaining” about rolling shutter at 8K, codecs, bit-rates, recording time, etc oh and all that should cost less than 3K lol.

Never is good enough.
Why don’t you just buy an ARRI Alexa??

They are also complaining about the lack of triple memory card slots
