RedFox88: If Leica made this they'd market it as a 24mm and a 35mm prime both f/2 in one lens. And they'd charge $4500 for it!

Only $4500. Where did you see Leica lenses on sale?

I love this camera, and I don't think it's THAT bad a deal. It's still too expensive for me though!

princecody: Who owns it?

It's sitting in a box, unopened, and yet it's already his favourite camera.

supeyugin1: No touchscreen, 5 fps? really? It's not gonna fly, and 42MP who needs that much?
4K video with shitty compression? Not gonna work that good.

Since when did high-res variants of cameras become sports cameras? 5 fps is absolutely fine for this camera.

Just wait for a lower resolution version (A7S-2)

BillyBobSenna: I'm still trying to get my head around if this camera will be as good as say a Nikon D750 for action photography? Is the speed of the AF and usability of the EVF going to provide at least equal capability? I know there is still the question of lens availability for action photography however I just want to know if the basic platform has at least equal potential. I have a Sony A6000 and my experience is that it is not an action camera.

How much action do you intend on capturing with a battery that small?

Nanospeed1: Guys, here is a petition for Sony for the uncompressed RAW implementation.... Please sign it if that's a critical issue for you (as it certainly is for me!)

p.s. to censor: Yes, I posted it under the other article too but the more signatures, the more voice and (hopefully) more happy Sony-photographers in the future! :-)

Doesn't Sony cook their RAWs anyway?

I just want data that's OOC. To me, that's what a RAW is supposed to be.

Nikita66: "It also offers a fully electronic silent shutter."

Then why do we need a mechanical shutter at all?

Rolling shutter effect, which will cause a distortion of a moving subject.

It could be something as simple as a person walking. That person will look bendy in a weird way.

I wish they hadn't made the phone thinner. I love physical shutter buttons on phones, but I find them difficult to hold properly when the phone is too thin. There's no grip, and it's just a PITA to hold thinner phones and press the shutter button.

That's why the Xperia Z3 was less comfortable to hold than the Z3 Compact. Well, not for normal use, but certainly when holding it sideways and using it as a camera.

straylightrun: What's the point of these halfgrades? Who upgrades their phone ever 6 months?

I'm not sure if you were being serious with that comment or not, but....

Not many people, but the launch of a new phone isn't done to be in sync with every individual's upgrade cycle.

I think updates every 6 months is actually a pretty good idea. The person who's just about to get a new phone is always going to benefit, which means everybody who's looking at getting an Xperia is going to benefit.

sportyaccordy: If this is anything like the 20MP camera in my Z3, pass on it. The JPGs out of it are smeary, flat and just generally awful, and it doesn't do RAW. Even if it did, it wouldn't be worth the time spent processing files. I think the big issue is the lens. If they haven't fixed that it's DOA. The phone is excellent otherwise but the camera was a huge let down.

Their processing sucks. Nothing wrong with the sensors. ;)

But yeah.....I get what you're saying. This is probably going to disappoint you anyway, because I doubt Sony learned how to process their own RAW data from their own Sony sensor.

Thomas Kachadurian: If it had OIS i would buy one tomorrow. Without it it will be unusable to anyone who isn't naturally steady.

Unusable? How so?

Other than my Nokia 925 and 930, I've never had an actual camera with IBIS on it. Lenses? Sure, but OIS made them larger than they had to be, for sure.

zodiacfml: how much is it these days?
my previous comment for this device was to by a $500 RX100 and the other $500 to buy a flagship smartphone such as an S6 or i6.

That would completely defeat the purpose of owning one device, but you can make that comparison if you think that's fair.

MikeF4Black: I'd always prefer my Tumi messenger bag, black ballistic nylon, to which an appropriate Billingham insert has been added. It holds a D800E with one prime easily, a lot of other stuff, an iPad and some documents.

And it doesn't look like a murse, it looks the business. And fortunately it doesn't "sport" a red dot.


Or just get a model without the red dot. Jeebus....

FinDERP: Looks a lovely bag but it's way out of the range I'd be willing to pay for something like this - even if I had a large disposable budget I'd sooner spend it on lenses and probably large format gear too large to fit in anything carryable anyway haha.

I appreciate that ONA is taking time to answer comments and queries here though, that's really a great effort and I wish more companies would act like this!

The bag I had mentioned earlier.

bigdaddave: I could never be seen with a bag that is worth more than the gear inside it.

What an utter waste of money

That bag is worth more than the gear you have inside it?

Damn, that sucks. Sorry to hear that.
