petr marek: "Kinda crappy" is this Canon promotion video. I am sure that lower ISO on A7S with S-log would bring better image. My opinion, of course...

""Can the Sony A7S pull off high-quality video with the milky way in the background"?"

High quality means 4K for me so canon has no chance of it. Why do you have to disadvantage canon like that.

I raised this question because the issue is same in my opinion as comparing A7s 2 and A7r 2 one is low light and another is high res sensor. On pixel level A7s is better than A7r because of larger pixels but overall they are both almost equal.
Now I guess for videos things are different as it seems you guys suggesting that canon somehow getting more light than sony despite same sensor size.
I hope I made sense, dont know rules of video.

A7S shoots 4K and this does not. Obviously pixel size matters here but on the other hand canon does not shoot 4K. So saying that sony does not come close is only valid when low res canon is compared with high res sony. If someone asked canon for 4k then the matter would be different.

justmeMN: BTW, today Canon announced that they sold 1.5 million interchangeable lens cameras last quarter, and projected sales of 5.5 million interchangeable lens cameras this year.

Sam pretty sure canon does not think phones are threat. This is exactly how companies go out of business if history is any help.
Canon also thought mirrorless was not worth trying until m43 and sony showrd that its a market.

ttran88: Hey wait a minute I was told on DPR only a full frame camera can make winning photos.

Sony doesn't have lenses. Only mirrorless that has lenses is m43 but then sensor is micro sized.

Stompie: Im not convinced. Its a bit meh for me. Theres no doubt this is some pretty cool tech, but is it just that? Cool tech.
For me personally capturing images is an immersive experience. No not exclusively but mostly. If i go out to take a picture and I pack my camera bag and head out to a location, I have made the effort, done research and am excited about capturing that perfect image.
I will NEVER get that same immersion from the L16. Yes it will appeal to wealthy soccer moms who want to spend the money on a light, portable camera that could capture DSLR quality pics and yes maybe to photojournalists who are on location in the middle of a hot zone who can whip this out of their pocket instead of a (by comparison) bulky DSLR to take an image of something thats taking place 10 meters in front of them.
In my opinion, L16 is not going to do anything to the DSLR market, if anything its competing with the point n shoot market.
It could make an effective and interesting addition to a kit

Dont let the door hit you, it catches hypocrites quite easily.

Ps your dslr still cant give the same immersion as simple 3d camera. Nothing changed.

You wouldn't get the same immersion from dslr as you would from a simple fuji 3d camera.
May be you should consider puting your money where your mouth is.

You dont have to buy this cheap lenses. nobody forced you.

Siobhan A: LOL!!!!
Sony finally has something to compete with the 2 year old FZ1000 and is selling it for 4X the price.

But hilariously Sony again left off PDAF or DFD type AF, so this camera will again be a complete fail for anyone want to take pictures of something moving.

If I remember. Correctly the panasonic you talk.about starts from 28mm so in that case pana is quite inferior in range since 24 and 28 and not close.

The Squire: I wonder why GM branded rather than Sony-Zeiss branded?

@ Marty4650
"Do you honestly think Leica designs those Leica branded lenses on Panasonic cameras? Now remember, even the cheapest Lumix P&S camera says "Leica" on it."

Sure Marty Leica is just 1 person designing product to just 1 standard. There is no way in hell they could vary on design and standard and efforts to which they design things.

""Zeiss branded lenses" and probably designs them as well."

With probably anything is possible. Probably casio making all the m43 cameras, who knows. We can always use probably to discredit anything that is well known and out there for years.

brownie314: So, announce a new aps-c body along with some new ff glass. Makes sense.

Brownie obviously you will decide what is good on their camera bodies when they pay for it. Which other camera brands you decide what combinations are good?

Agree with sarcasm. What was sony thinking, obviously none of these lenses work on APC camera. What waste of lenses.

aramgrg: Sounds like a good lens, until one sees the price.
How comes a lens covering 4 times smaller area is more expensive than canon and nikon ones?
Well, they know the market better. Not for me for sure.

you cant back up what you said. Just as I thought.

@nzmacro , why should I post anything??
First lets clear what I wrote. Are you saying that a FF user who can use 600mm lens at F8 does not understand about using 600mm lens.

Is this your point??

First lets clear this.

PS "So please show us what you get from your club :-)"

Only a child responses like this. If your claim is that you can shoot better than all the FF shooters then you are kidding yourself.

"You have no idea what a 300mm can do on an m4/3 sensor, so leave that to those that actually do. "

Ah the arrogance of knowledge.
Do you think no-one who uses FF knows what 600mm F8 lens can do on FF.

Or only the m43 users can know stuff. Is it a special club?

Boss of Sony: Canon 100-400L IS or 400 f5.6L on APS-C would offer same focal length, similar performance for half the price.

@ Hen3ry This is what he said, he will prefer that combo.

In reply to:

Marc Ramirez: Need 4 times the light to expose the larger ff sensor, so f8 dof equivalence. Or crop a 300 f8 full frame sensor to m43 levels and see how the images compare.

"Marc give it a break, when your using a 300mm most dont care about DOF eqivalence, we care about getting optical reach."

A pentax Q with 135mm lens would make more sense to you as it would be much cheaper.

RichRMA: Too bad no Sony mount. It's a lot better deal than nearly $1500 for a Zeiss 21mm Loxia that's slow at f/2.8

Only you would not know how to use this lens on sony e mount. Rest of us can buy lens adaptors.
