@Alam12

"Ah yes 10 fps, just like 7dmii, a camera from 2014 ;)"

And the 7dmii is just like the entry level Sony SLT A55 that did 10 fps back in 2010 ;)

$600 F2.8 primes and an $1800 camera that still won't fit in your pocket aren't going to slow them down.

@TRU

If you read my comments carefully enough, you would know (from the first sentence) that my argument is specifically about the money income out of the camera vs smartphone.

Everyone knows that smartphones are selling way more than cameras. I don't care about whatever reason someone will buy his phone. There is no comparison between the two in the professional (revenue generated) as well as IQ, lowlight and many other segments.

Well, in my case, my camera is lightyears better than any smartphone could offer. I don't need the 4K 60 HDR at all, I need a great IQ with excellent lowlight performance. You can't match the IQ of a bigger sensor with a better optics with great DOF (if required) with any smartphone.

If the smartphone were better, you wouldn't see as many cameras out there.

I don't need my camera to fit my pocket. I need my camera to perform as I wish (and it does). If my phone was as capable, I would use it, yet again no phone can ever match my camera for my needs.

Both the lenses and camera will generate money for me. I am sure that the Smartphone won't generate as much money as my camera gear.

ElGhuraify: @TRU "The Sony camera is like working an old VCR. Really not fun at all, and it uses the old Sony menu system, one so bad that Sony was forced to make dramatic changes."

Well, I and many others are enjoying using the cameras and we are having fun using it. Can you bring 10 users who are no happy and not having fun compared with thousands?

@TRU
You can customize the camera so that you rarely will use the menu system. Could you please specify how often you are using the menu and for what exactly? I find it more easy to use Sony's menu rather than the other companies because once you are familiar to it everything is good.

Still, I asked you this question about the menu system many times before and you didn't answer me yet.

How often do you dive into the menu and for what?

He is very smart at avoiding answering the questions like he didn't see them. I will admit that he is a very capable person in avoiding legit arguments and questions.

I asked him to comment on this months ago and he still trying to avoid it because it is Canon's menu system.

@TRU

I am not trying anything, I can say whatever system is bad based on my preferences or experience. I am asking about the reasons that lead you to consider it as a bad menu system? Whatever camera I get, I spend ,y time learning and customizing it to my preferred settings without the need to use the menu again.

I rarely use the menu system because I don't need it, and when I need it I don't have any issues as I spend less than a minute doing whatever I want to do from formatting the cards or selecting a specific option. No one I know (and I know many) uses the menu more often, from Canon, Sony, Nikon or other systems. So you are complaining about something and refusing the give valid reasons.

@TRU

So you based your opinion on other's experience? So any group of people criticizing certain thing in a camera it will be a disadvantage or a bad thing? How many users are upset?

Also, you are saying that because Sony changed the system so this backs up your claim? Are Canon and Nikon are using the same menu system since 10 years ago without any refinements?

Here you go, an experts describing Canon's menu system as increasingly complex! Why didn't you talk about it? Ever.

zakk9: No, Sony's discontinuation of the A-mount does not mean that all others will discontinue their DSLR cameras and lenses as well. The three first months this year, 44% of interchangeable lens cameras shipped were DSLRs (600,277 DSLR bodies vs. 771,205 mirrorless bodies). It will take many years, maybe even decades, before people stop buying cameras with optical viewfinders. Some people simply prefer those cameras, and where there is a market, there will be suppliers, at least unless company policies and/or the chase for more shareholder value dictates something else.

Sony's discontinuation comes because Sony never managed to get a significant market share and probably never made much profit from the DSLR cameras.

@wjan

It is absolutely the opposite where I live (Middle East), you wouldn't know that Sony sells cameras unless you passed by the dealer and noticed the small corner that have two or three display bodies only.

@TRU

Still you didn't give me any link for a better cameras from the competition! We can claim whatever we want all day, when it comes for features, A-mount had more compelling options than what others provided during that time.

The fact that the competition sold more or had a more market share doesn't mean that they had a better options at all. Sony didn't advertise the A-mount during that time, only two persons I knew had Sony cameras. Again, don't mix sales with specs, A-mount was far better system in terms of features and specs than the competition.

Could you give a link for cameras that had better specs by that time?

@MikeRan

I would, if the prices were lower. What made me switch to FF E-mount is one perfect deal on A7III and 24-70 GM (both for the price of A99II body). Otherwise, I was using my A77II until 2019, with A6000 since release back in 2014.

Form factor is far better, screen implementation is second to none (IMO). The only issue was the low light performance in 2019 (was good enough for many years). If I had a good deal on the A99II, I would buy it without hesitation at all.

@TRU

"but never challenged Canon or Nikon in any significant way"

Link give me a link to a camera from both companies that have.

42MP FF sensor with:-
12 FPS
Excellent AF system
Excellent video capabilities
EVF
and a lot of better features.

The A99 is a far more capable camera than the 5DIII, and the A99II is far more capable camera than many other FF cameras that only the D850 can be compared with in certain areas.

Back in 2011, the original A77 did 12 fps with 24 MP, 1080 video with AF and IBIS. Could you also share some links from the other manufacturers that had the same features? The only issue with the A-mount system is than it never got the attention and advertising needed to be more successful (financially). Sony saw an opportunity in the mirrorless system and drove the competition towards it.

Systems don't stick around forever.

A-Mount is a great system, not matter what any person say.

thx1138: Wow they actually released the A1 with the garbage low res LCD from 2010. They better do a quick update and give everybody a free upgrade if they want it that already has an A1.

TRU is very smart. He kept dragging people into unnecessary discussions about the screen for tens if not hundreds of posts. The fact the he is stating the same nonsense every time (especially with build quality) prove that he have some hate towards a certain brand.

A1 is lacking behind competition in terms of screen resolution, the screen is good enough for majority of people. He kept bragging about 1DX "built like a tank" while not everyone is agreeing on "heavy means better", did he mentioned that? surely no, but when it comes to Sony, one comment means it is a huge issue! Hypocrisy at its best.

Other cameras might have a better screen, while Alpha 1 is ahead in many other major tech.

In reply to:

worldaccordingtojim: There is no noticeable difference between the a1 and the 5 year old Nikon Z7 II sensor that was released in the a7rIII. There is a diminishing rate of return on Megapixels, and for a full frame that appears to be around 45. All this is doing is creating large file sizes, slowing down work flows for professionals. This is purely a marketing spec.

@TRU

What about the pros who buy 1DXIII/D6? will they need a second body? Or is it just for the pros who will consider Sony?

Does 1DXIII and D6 (which basically are a 6500$ flagships) have the best of everything? Shame on you for not including them in this case.
