Jack Jian: Being a flagship, and when used in "flagship" setup & environment, for this time, I completely agree with what DPR concludes:

"....What we mean by 'lag' is that, from boot-up times to menu navigation to simply adjusting your exposure parameters, you can expect a 'hiccup' from the moment of your input to the time the camera responds to it. If u're shooting fast action & switching from the rear screen, to the electronic viewfinder - the time it takes means a fast-moving subject might be in a different spot altogether. This EVF / screen lag isn't unique to the a6600, but it does take a beat longer on the Sony.

Single UHS-I SD card slot. A6600 shoots at a 11fps...but it takes a long time to clear, ...&, while the buffer is clearing, you cannot switch to video mode, change burst speed or change image quality settings...

***considering its position at the top of Sony's APS-C lineup***, this is all a bit ***disappointing.***.. !!!"

Seems Sony really have hit the plateau of innovation.

//This time next year the A7IV will be out and the A7III will probably be discounted to around this price point.//

As will the A7SIV

This just goes to show how much catching up Canon has to go until they are totally pwned.

ecka84: That new Canon APS-C chip seems to be really nice actually.

Just goes to show how desperate they are, to develop a stellar sensar for a change. :p

Sony Mirrorless E Mount Full Frame better.

Lightright: Detachable parts simply don't make robust design. My brother accidentally dropped his Nex 5N with a viewfinder attached on a hard pavement, damaging it and the hot shoe. I dropped my A6000 in the same manner and it continues to work without problems and thankfully the screen protector of my LCD absorb the impact. All I did is buy another one to replace it. Canon would have made the view finder part of the unit especially for that price.

I guess the M6 was more popular than the M5 to get a second generation?

This lens is a fine piece of Bro-Tech.

And it would function much better if adapted to an E-Mount Camera by Sony.

Paul B Jones: As they used to say in the Soviet Union "They pretend to pay us, we pretend to work".

In the US we will be singing that song come November 2020 when the A7 folks vote Bernie in.

Just goes to show how Canon is hitting the ground hard from not fully embracing the inevitable mirrorless future.

pacnwhobbyist: I’ve said this before....IDK why, especially Canon, doesn’t take this as an opportunity to consolidate their lineup. Right now they are selling: Rebel T6, Rebel T7, Rebel T7I, Rebel 77D, Rebel SL3, 90D, 7D Mark II, M100, M200, M50, M6 Mark II, and M5. And that’s just APSC. For god sakes. Not all of those cameras can be selling well. They could chop their offerings in half and still make a profit on the low end.

DigitalCameraWorld posts such indecisive inconclusive fluff articles that its possibly worse than DPR.

analoggrotto: Is that banner image DPR's way of saying that between Nikon and Sony, Canon just does not have any room to fit in?

@Gannon Burgett @roustabout66

I was being facetious. Its a cute way to have 3 competitors pose together. 2 on the couch and 1 lying across the other 2. Cheers, have a good weekend!

Who in the world is buying a new 7D2 ? Adding to an existing fleet?

fcracer: Imagine if Apple were to design and release a camera in 2020, what would it look like and how would it be received?

It would be beautiful and have a premium finish using advanced metals and manufacturing, it would upload images to the cloud, and seamlessly work with your iPhone, iPad and Mac computers.

It would have a touchscreen experience from 2019. It would use computational photography to make the APSC sensor do things that even full frame and medium format cameras currently cannot.

It would clobber everything but the most advanced gear.

The Japanese camera companies should be happy that Apple and Samsung have so many larger fish to fry because they’d have no chance against these modern thinking companies.

There's bad ideas and then there's this.

Gesture: Nice to get some perspective on modern camera history.

Also, why not interchangeable finders on the highest end cameras?

@RubberDials

Perhaps Sony is eating more than just shorts.

I agree, why did DPR not ask Canon about how quickly Sony is eating their shorts?

Amazing how much better this lens will perform on a Sony A7S
