In reply to:

Jeff Peterman: It looked great. Until I saw that the lens was F2.8-5.6. It probably closes down pretty quickly so that the f2.8 is only at the wide end too.

"24-72mm f2.8-5.6 lens for APSC"

small is the keyword here othersize sony R1 did 24-120 mm with F2.8-5.6.

noggin2k1: Spent a long time debating between the D850 & A9.

This review tells me I made the right call moving to Sony.

@sbu if you were debating between iphone and a9 then you don't need to tell what you chose in the end. We know what low IQ people chose.

In reply to:

composed: Looks OK, it would probably make a good travel camera.

I just wish Sony would release an update of the R1. Maybe one day...

Tkb you are right so not going to argue.

But subjectively speaking the top lcd and the form factor for ME is better on r1.

I don't feel like buying rx10 just for this reason. For me rx10 thus does not destroy r1 in every category.

NJOceanView: I'm a pro who uses crop sensors 95% of the time because 1) I need the reach; and 2) I don't need super shallow DOF. Clients have never complained about the quality of my images (none complain about the crop sensor designation because they don't understand the difference and don't need to), so I'm glad to read this report. That said, there are times I use FF because of DOF requirements or the need to really minimize noise.

@zdman i don't see apc or m43 or 1" having top of line ff resolution. So if their inability to shoot ff resolution is no issue then why ff crop has to match their resolution.

"I've never understood the "reach" argument."

Me neither. All these people were not excited about pentax Q with 5.6 crop factor. Imagine 135mm FF lens is now 750mm lens. How is that for reach but all those who say crop for reach don't go for it.

In reply to:

photomedium: This would have been perfect if the guy had chosen CROP sensor at the end. As it is this sounds like the priest telling you: 'do what I say - don't do what I do'.
On course FF is better, the blur Is there in plain sight. You can get FF for 2k these days anyways, so ultimately the video was nonsense. I did enjoy the cleavage though...

"technically, yes, but a client does not care about technical. Put the two pictures side by side and let a customer choose the "better" one."

If this was the message of this article, the author would do just that and use APC in the end. The author does not see any reason to give up on FF and follow what he tried to show.

In reply to:

skanter: From friends who are pros:

If you're a pro who makes a living at it, you need FF to impress clients. Crop is fine for everyone else.

This assumption that those who shoot FF does not know how to take photos is laughable.

zxaar: So Manny must be selling his A9 now that he found that it is hard to find differences.

If he does not sell his A9 and keep using it then i would conclude that he can tell enough differences between cameras and in favour of A9 to keep it (and for someone to buy too)

@stan
That was the point of my post. The person who created this video knows those differences and hence he bought and use A9.
Others would want for the similar reasons.

"I love the Sony Fanboys coming to drop their worthless 2 cents."

Nothing different than how nikon and canon fanboys drop their worthless 2cents on sony articles.

You will be dropping your worthless 2cents on sony articles too in coming months.

Can it handle the situations where silent shutter is a must?

If it can not then i am afraid its still not there yet.

Thorgrem: Still don't care. And now?

"Still don't care. And now?"

Now finally if you don't care, stop commenting on articles related to this camera. Your commenting makes us think that you not only care, you are actually bothered by it.

anwiko: Discrimination is often invisible to those who are not discriminated - even if they are photographers.

Did equal women apply to be represented. If they did not apply for it and nikon did not ask for them to show up, how are they discriminated. When someone opens all women company everyone celebrates then why criticizes nikon for this small stuff.

Wubslin: Does it come with a rootkit lol

"Yeah we should just forget bad things if they happened in the past."

Don't buy sony products. Decide for yourself. If you want you can have it engraved on your grave that sony put root kit and you never let it go.

Do whatever you like. most people have moved on from it and you can not tell them what to worry about. From where I stand your comment is pure nonesense.

If you send request to sony they can install on your version. There are not many people who miss rootkit so much.

seloo: "we'd find we totally forgot we weren't shooting with a high-end sports camera, only to occasionally be surprised when we took it away from our eye and realized it doesn't have pro-DSLR levels of direct settings control."

I would like what the reviewer is drinking.

You already have a lot of something it seems. With A9's AF module that sentence makes sense.

orion1983: Now, as the focus as the far biggest weakness of the RX10III seemed to have turned into a strength and also touchscreen has been added, I forgive Sony the lacking ND filter and will start saving money. In the meantime, the first buyers (often abused as beta testers) will tell me if my high expectations are being met ;)

@Jorginho

if the IQ difference between APC and m43 is non existent then the IQ difference between 1' and m43 are nonexistent too. So sony does better or equal to than m43 on IQ eitherway.

As far l.ens goes GH5 might better with some primes on it, but then you don't have that range. If you go for that range of 24 to 600mm you end up with bulkier system. GH series already having bigger bodies to start things with.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: This is the camera for me when I give up on M43 and on MiLCs. With the continuing increase in size, weight and price of those products with sufficient quality, and Sony's 1-inch sensor catching up to the 16MP sensors in IQ and AF capability, it makes sense to spend the money to buy this and forget any more purchases.

@GodSpeaks

Did you pair your mft camera with corresponding 24-600 mm lens? In m43 forums they love to tell others that how NEX is smaller body but have huge lenses. So this applies here too.
