This thread's gotta a real "OFF WITH YOUR HEADS!" vibe to it ;)

I don't care who the intended user is, in fact, IMO, it's asinine not to appeal to as many users as possible in today's shrinking market. To say, you omitted an important feature for the sake of the "intended user" is both convenient and transparent. A camera that performs this well in low light is screaming to be hand-held therefor they should have implemented a SYNC-IS IBIS feature with an off switch for the gimbal minded ;) especially for 2500! ...which btw, would have broadened it's appeal to stills shooters without undercutting the G9.

@ Ashmills and these days, with camera sales on the decline seems to me a savvy camera company would try to attract as many unintended users as possible by adding Syn IS feature to this M43 viddy camera. Give it an off switch for the gimbal minded ;)

I know what they say but at 2500 I believe they should have gone the route of a Syn IS feature instead. I mean, it's not like there's a ton of pixels to stabilize ;)

I think Hollywood should make a movie about this and call it Planet of the Apes ;)

Maybe a shot or two of the lens on an Alpha would be to much to ask for :)

Just go with it Randy, maybe your gear will dominate next year ;)

Totally agree ... in fact, I don't think its all a stretch to say that the Sony 85 1.8 could easily wear a little blue Zeiss insignia on it's side ;)

Why the mirroless moniker, almost sounds like a caveat. How about one of the best CAMERAS ever made period? ...and with 3rd party adapted lenses, one of the most versatile, if not THE most versatile camera ever made ;)

In reply to:

farquers: I have a niggling doubt about the ruggedness or longevity of cameras with in body stabilisation. More moving parts to go wrong etc. Not having the sensor fixed in relation to the mount could be asking for trouble.
I don't wish to pick on sony here. I had an A7sii that worked superbly.
I would be interested if anyone has heard of problems with this technology. It doesn't seem to make its way into a D5 or 1Dx which are very rugged tools, so maybe its for consumers with GAS?

@farquaad: try a tintype ;)

In reply to:

Daft Punk: Only thing that bothers me a little about this camera is the body design.

Much prefer the A9 body.

Why? I don't care for the blank real estate on the left hand top plate. Could have easily put another dial there for more direct inputs, just like the A9. A missed opportunity to improve ergonomics.

Glue a dongle on there, maybe a compass or bobble head ;)

Yes the extra point goes to the camera with the phenomenal EVF ;)

The A7R III feels like the first Sony A7 series camera that doesn't skimp on anything. You won't feel like you need to wait for the next gen to get the feature you want/need. They may have held back slightly on the tracking , I mean they had to leave something to justify the A9 price. Although it could be argued that the eye AF more than makes up for the deficiency. At any rate, props to Sony for giving us most everything we've been asking for in one camera - FINALLY! ;)
