  • You mean $2400 camera. And some people do shoot jpegs, at least sometimes. Just because you don’t doesn’t mean others don’t. Say perhaps a sports photographer who needs to deliver jpegs on the go....

  • Again... the dual processor for AF is only for OVF... that is it. Which is my point. It was always difficult to fully assess DSLR vs MILC AF performance considering the wildly different concept. ...
  • True. But less pixels can mean faster operations etc. I was thinking about it as well. Sony might have more in stored than just another A7SII reskinned. But hen again it has happened before....

  • In life view mode it didn’t use the digic 8 at all from what reviewers state. And for EVF it probably uses the digix ex for head detection processing. But the AF is still driven by ten digic 8. I ...
  • A few things comes to mind... 1. cost 2. IP... who knows how many variants Sony patented. 3. fab, and processes 4. Time and engineering man power limitation 5. Features for future releases. 6. goes ...
  • Sorry. Incorrect. The 1DXIII uses either or of the processors for AF, and not both. it uses one for EVF shooting and the Digic X for live view.
  • You are right. But the main point and complaint people had was that f7.1 at 500. But as I pointed out in the past if you get the same IQ as the 100-400 through out the range then the 400-500 is ...

    Well then you have the R5... though if I were on Sony at the moment, I would consider holding off a bit. You never know what the A7SIII will bring or the A7IV.

    Though the wider...

  • All of your points are valid. And though I agree with all of it there are simply more than one way to skin a cat. 1. if you absolutely have to you can put the TCs on the 100-500. So that is an ...
  • Well now that we have zebras for the R5 and R6 it should be easier to ETTR without clipping highlights. Couple that with IBIS and you can keep the shutter speed down. Depending on the subject of ...
  • As i states. They interface for the sensor alone is likely different. You can have here exact same chip but still have a different module. The sensor has to sit in the IBIS, and thus is by default ...
  • Oooo... I do see one negative I was hoping wouldn’t be there.

    The cipa rating for the R5 is lower than the EOS R

  • Not at all.

    Thank you for acknowledging your initial mistake. And sorry that we got into this needless tiff. Why are we all so sensitive these days about this.

    We all say it. Competition is...

  • I am not over complicating things. Take the intel approach to processor development. The well known tick tock. The come up with a completely new architecture chip. Next round it is basically a ...
  • This Is why I want the R5. The higher MP count means I can just crop the images taken with the 100-500. And the 100-500 certainly seems smaller and lighter than the 150-600. if I really want more ...
  • And common sense also tells us that you have the whole diminishing returns thing. If you make a lens mount 1 mile wide it won’t improve IBIS, any more than 1 meter, and an more than 60mm.

    But...

  • @MikeRan

    This is literally what I said.

    “ So... there are benefits to having a wider mount other than lens design.

    And those extra connections for fast communication with the lens...

    Unless...

  • Exactly.

    Wide lens mount allows for the sensor to move more (larger distance) while keeping it illuminated.

    And the high speed communication between the lens and the camera (not lens mount size...

  • But... 12 fps mechanical. So no issue. Most people really don't need faster than 12 fps.

  • But they aren't of the same generation necessarily. I would imagine that they probably got the sensor for the 1DXIII developed before much of the rest of the camera. I think for the 1DXIII the ...
