halai: This is the camera I've been waiting for: quiet shutter, 4k video, tilt screen, eye focusing, 24MP, and fast AF. All that for $2,000! Well done Sony, you will definitely get my money once this camera is available.

@ moo_dprev
Yes it's the 2.8 Zeiss. That lens is super light and sharp at f2.8. Perfect for traveling!

@ moo_dprev, If I read the spec right, the touch screen is perfect for my video work, just tap and focus.

I forgot about the touch screen and the joystick too. Lots of good stuff with this camera. I still have the Sony A7 and use it when I want to travel light with the 35mm and 55mm Zeiss lens. Still love the pics coming out from that camera. Now with the joystick, touch screen, quiet shutter, 4k video, fast AF and a dual card slot, this is it for me! The one camera that will go everywhere with me.

halai: Even if Apple give out the adapter for free, I would not buy one. What a troublesome have to remember to bring one with you. This come from a guy that uses macbook pro and imac at home. My macbook pro need an upgrade, but sorry Apple, my business will go somewhere else. Good luck with your perfect design flaw!

Darngooddesign, please read my comment again. Why do I need to bring anything when I'm at home with my imac, just like you said? However, I do have an old macbook pro that I travel and use it regularly. Yes the old one that doesn't need an adapter to use my sd cards.

On article Sony Alpha a7 II Review (856 comments in total)

I already have mine ordered and waiting for it to arrive. If only it has silent shutter and the tracking AF is on par with Nikon D700/D800, it would be my perfect camera. However, it's still a dawn good camera for most of my usage. Well done Sony!!!

On article Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II (178 comments in total)
In reply to:

halai: I love using my Sony A7. Matter of fact, I use it more than my Nikon Df whenever I travel or go out with my family. The tilt screen, face regconition, excellent video, and its compactness, makes it a joy to use and carry around all day with the 35mm and 55mm lenses. However there are two things I would like to see Sony improve on:
1. Autofocus in dim light situation. AF is fast during the day but at night, it can be a pain in the ass sometimes.
2. Shutter sound. Can it be more quiet please, or silence like the RX1.

As much as I like using Nikon, there is no reason for me to keep two system when Sony get those two things right, and with IBIS, it's a dream camera for me.

@Zeisschen and Abortabort - you guys are right that the A7s has what I'm looking for, and it's a damn fine camera! However a light downside is that it is only 12mp. I would like at least 16-24mp since I like to have that flexibility to crop when taking pictures.

In reply to:

justmeMN: Technical merit aside, in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. $2,799.00 for an off-brand camera? Good luck with that.

Where is this "off-brand" now with their phones, tablets, computers, TVs, refrigerators, washer & dryers, and diswashers... just to name a few? I think this "off-brand" company can buy both Nikon and Canon companies tomorrow if they wanted to.

Nikon please try again. This marketing trick is pretty lame. Yes you will fool a couple people, but you really think we will buy this for $1200? Please think again.

In reply to:

Retzius: Ah yes, the demand outpaces production "apology"... The lamest form of marketing by Nikon so far.

How stupid does Nikon think we are?

Nikon, pull your head out of your collective butt, stop the stupid marketing tricks, and start competing again.

Can't believe people are falling for this marketing trick. "We are sold out of the V3!" Really Nikon? How many did you actually produced? At $1200...what a joke!

On article Pentax K-3 Review (515 comments in total)

Not that I care about the score...but don't you think the K-3 should have a higher score than 83 DPR? :-)
- No oil spots
- No light leak
- Has video
- Very very good raw file

Isn't this what we want for our photography???

I'm ready to dump all my Nikon gear for this new A7S, if the AF-C is as fast as the D700/D800. What do you say Sony? Can you do that for me?

In reply to:

SergioSpain: Where are all those Nikon apologists/dust deniers now who said dust is normal and you should just learn to clean your sensor and quit complaining? There were more than a few of those on DPreview boards.

I believe they feel really stupid now because they got a defective product. LMAO!!!

On article Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 (224 comments in total)

So obviously this is a known fact that D600 is a defective product even from the start. I really wonder where are all the clowns that said this dust/oil issue from a camera is normal, and it is our responsibility to learn how to clean a camera even when we bought it NEW. Come on, where are you clowns??? Do you feel stupid now?

On article Nikon Df Review (1620 comments in total)

This is for Nikon. So, you expect us to buy this camera and still carry around our camcorder for videos. We know you market this camera as a "Pure Photography" camera, but common, we can still use a camera that has a video function as "Pure Photography", and then switch that button for "Pure Videography" too. Really dumb marketing Nikon.
