Karsten Meyer: Thank you, DPREVIEW. As I'm coming from an a 6400 and thinking of an upgrade, I would love such a comparison of the a7 IV vs. the a7c! This could be also interesting for peope coming from other brands. Both of them have the new AF system, but I'm really not sure about the differences, besides the size of the body.

@AZheaven shouldn't both have just the same AF?

Krebs Cyclist: Can anyone tell me if the A7iv has automatic built-in focus bracketing?

I think no Sony camera at all has focus bracketing. It's a shame as Nikon as well as Canon can do it.

Image 44 / 62:
Top of the scyscraper in the background is tack sharp. But when I scroll down, the windows of that same building look blurry. Instead the water tank which is way nearer looks sharp. Just wondering.
There was the same with another image of theat scyscraper which I can't find anymore.

I'm still using this little gem from time to time. It found it's place in my car, in a place where I can grab it just while driving. One key feature of this small camera are the many switches - I can use all of them blindly. I think there is no current compact camera which is so easy to handle.

I had also the ultra wide adapter LW46 - it came from Panasonic and gave great results when snapping architecture.

Karsten Meyer: Some thoughts about my G3 X:
- I think the lens is not that soft. Maybe it was not the best copy which there was tested.
- A lens that extends so much can never be "weather sealed".
- The close-up possibilities are nice.
- AF-Tracking is great, in special related to face detection.
- This camera has a serious problem with the live view. It brightens up the view without any warning or hint, so you should check the taken photos like with an DSLR. So sad about that. Automatic preview does not work when continuous shooting mode is switched on.

All cameras I know show a preview at the end of that shooting - except the G3 X.

I like my G3 X very much.
- The close-up possibilities are nice.
- AF-Tracking is great, in special related to face detection and the touch display.
- The tiltable display is much more useful for me than a fully articulating one (because I use no EVF).
- Ergonomics are good. Nice grip.
- Continuous shooting is very fast when using JPEG output.
- In contrast to most cameras where you can change lenses, this camera can be used absolutely silent.

I'm not missing an EVF. It would make this camera even more expensive (and it wouldn't tilt like the accessory part).

But the G3 X has also a big drawback:
- There is a serious issue with the live view. The camera brightens up the view without any warning or hint, so you should check the taken photos like with an DSLR whenever you are using it in not so bright light. So sad about that. Automatic preview does not work when continuous shooting mode is switched on.

LiSkynden: Did anyone else notice that Canon moved the good old "vari-angle" screen to their semiPro SLRs and started to use that stupid selfie screen on their advanced P&S cameras?

I asked this a few times before but never got an answer to it: how do you shoot a low angle portrait with the selfie screen?

Bring back the vari-angle screen!!!

Simple tilting screens like we have here are made for users who use it everytime, so the decision to use this type of display correlates with the decision not to offer a built in EVF.

A fully articulating screen may be nice for some, but it has its disadvantages:
- It needs much more time to activate,
- It makes it nearly impossible to hold the camera in front of your stomach because you cannot use your left hand for holding the lens.
So the manufacturers use this type of display only for cameras where they know that it will be used seldomly. These are cameras with an EVF.
