Jefftan: Look at the EF-M lens lineup
Canon don't care about it and no Sigma support

Even the ultrawide (big reason for going mirrorless) start at 11mm not 10mm

just for the lens lineup would choose A5100
APS-C E-mount, FE mount, Sigma
there is a lot of lens choice

Sure, will do, as you miss the entire point of this exchange.

It seems you are unaware that an ILC camera requires 2 elements to become a photo-taking machine. One is the lens, the other is a body.

Your initial contribution here was "actually the sony has around a 1.54 crop". I assumed that you referred to the Sony APS-C crop factor (a camera particular as QED'ed above) which you kindly asked me to reconsider as 1.54.
If you continue to insist that the "crop factor is a lens particular", why not go ahead and propose the corresponding changes to the wikipedia link you have been provided with?
Off topic: How often has one seen behaviour like demonstrated by rrccad here before: When people run out of facts they resort to questionable language, name calling and other personal attacks (see above). Sad to see a somewhat entertaining exchange go down that drain. But after all, yes, this is the DPR comment section.

Well if a sensor is now part of a lens, then indeed I am that dense.
At least I never heard of a lens with a crop factor. It normally comes with sensor sizes. And those sensors sit in camera bodies. Image circles designed for certain sensor sizes is what I would associate as a lens characteristic, while equivalent focal lengths OTOH are the result of multiplying the lens' (!) actual focal length with the sensor(!) crop factor.
A useful link:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_factor
And a quote from that source: "In digital photography, the crop factor of an image sensor format is the ratio of the dimensions of a camera's imaging area compared to a reference format".
Do you see a lens mentioned in that definition?
QED.

@ rrccad
You posted: "is english a second language to you? You quoted from me, out of context. that wasn't hard to figure out was it? at the time this sub-thread was discussing lenses in particular the 11-22 UWA."
Earlier in this "sub-thread" you posted: "actually the sony has around a 1.54 crop .. especially if you are going to try to be that exact."
So how is the sensor crop factor any variable on a lens? It certainly and rightfully so is a variable to bring up in the context of a camera review, the context into which DR fits just as well.

"out of context"? Look at the header of the article this comment section is associated to. It is "Canon EOS M100 review". Just as a kind reminder. That is a camera with many variables, including lens performance, size, price, and in cam variables like DR. If the sum of all that or a specific set of parameters keeps people "using EF-M's because nothing comes close to that level taking into account all variables" (your exact words to be that exact) well, great!
Continue to be happy with what you use just as I do.

"... if you are going to try to be that exact" - so you did not mean All variables then when discussing the EOS-M. Okay. And watch your language.

Why A7rIII? I was hoping for A7rIIdII.
I guess Sony and Disney could not agree on that, though.

In case you really meant ALL variables, why did you exclude dynamic range? Just asking. But it is good to know you are happy with what you have. So am I. IMO, the most important thing when venturing into the DPR comments section ;-)

If so (source please, much appreciated) the FOV difference is still 2.2mm, in UWA territory something many will rather notice than choose to ignore.

@ Ebrahim Saadawi
"Sorry, please tolerate that 10mm vs 11mm difference"
Given that Sony APS-C has a 1.5 crop factor, Canon APS-C has 1.6, this is looking at 15mm FOV on Sony APS-C vs. 17.6mm on Canon, which makes it a significant and very noticable difference.
Just saying.

On article Yashica is teasing a comeback to the camera market (299 comments in total)

I had to dispose off my Yashica FR (bought in 1979 for dirt cheap 330 Deutsche Mark back then, together with a Yashinon 50/1.9) when Mother Nature's sons and daughters had eaten holes into its shutter curtains - I think I realized the problem after it sat unused in the corner for years since 1994 when my first Minolta A Mount AF SLR arrived here. Poor ol' thing, it died a lonely death. I loved the fully informative viewfinder, it showed aperture, shutter and correct exposure besides the manual focus aids it provided - microprism ring, split center and mate screen.
And the batteries I had forgotten in the winder battery holder had corroded, spilled out some of their interior and that ate almost all what was inside the battery holder.
R.I.P. my first SLR - long gone....

Peiasdf: SONY contributed more to consumer photography in the last 10 years than any other companies, perhaps all other companies combined. Without SONY stepping in after Minolta, we won't have IBIS on FF, 1" sensor and FF compact, APS-C and FF mirrorless, cheap MF, on sensor PDAF, crazy tilty screen.

@ Androole
Ooops - I missed that detail in your first comment.
Agree to what you kindly posted as reply.

Konica Minolta's camera divison - which was bought by Sony in March 2006 - had the first APS-C DSLR with IBIS, released in late 2004:

That legacy drove FF IBIS at Sony Alpha.

Sdaniella: Sony alpha dslrs, like their 2007 APSC A700
was 2 years behind in LV, and more specifically, ExpSim LV (Canon)
already available on Canon 2005 EOS 20Da (astro photography specifically), and 2007 EOS 40D (all photography)

even though SONY Cyberdhot DSC-R1 with Exposure Sim LV (Live Preview), it was the kind of aperture stop-down type of ES-LV of Canon Powershots (and later SONY mirrorless of today, like most non-canon milc)

Sony would not offer LV dSLRs until 2009 (with restrictions: dof preview, unavailable) fifth iteration of their APSC dslr (no FF alpha had LV either, till later yet)... they did not hold the patent ... it was Canon calling the shots, Sony had to do its LV dance to stay in the digital camera game (much like every other non-canon LV dcam mfr since)

Sdaniella posting a Sony bashing post? Another throwback.....

Me for example! Still using this "thing", as well as its big brother (two of them), a little sister (a55) and since two months an a99.

This video is a great example for corporate crisis management - take the problem, take your staff, put up a common goal and record the events and achievements associated with the crisis for internal motivation. Chapeaux!

QUOTE: "The a6000 is the mass-market, circa $700 model. For a bit more money you get a better viewfinder, 4K video and faster shooting in the a6300. Then, at an even higher price point, you get the in-body stabilization, touchscreen control and deeper buffer of the a6500." END QUOTE.
Thanks for stating something that became obvious over the time it took Sony to release this family of 3 cameras for 3 different price points in such obvious fashion. Let's assume there are some folks who may prefer to stay confused so that they can continue their confusion - or Sony's fault to confuse them: If they exist, they may hate you for this de-confusing contribution, and they may be found in the DPR comment section or fora.

On article Sony a9 banding issue: fact or fiction? (735 comments in total)
In reply to:

vadims: I remember taking portrait shots with original Canon 5D and [almost] wide open 50/1.4 in fluorescent light. Banding? Ha... Images looked like abstract art, with all sorts of color swatches and... well, interesting patterns.

You've got to know features and limitations of your gear, and for that purpose articles like this one are immensely useful.

Too bad they traumatize adolescent minds ("Deal breaker!! Unusable!!!"), let alone provide abundant food for trolls. Well, we have to accept that, I guess, just like we have to embrace both huge advantages and unavoidable quirks of a state-of-the art camera.
