Many of us wondered what the new A7Riii would be like. I don't think many predicted the same sensor. Price is right, features okay but not really compelling over the A7Rii.

Perhaps Sony has another higher Mp release in the works? A9R?

On article RIP Lightroom 6: Death by subscription model (1630 comments in total)

If you are paying for a subscription and want to cancel, Adobe charge you something like A$65 to do so. What a scam this company is. That is plainly theft. I didn't sign up to anything but month to month. Be warned people.

I don't like anything to do with clouds and storage. What you, Adobe!

This will be an excellent device for photographers to show others their photos. 3 to 2 screen is perfect. I have been waiting for a high resolution 15 inch 'tablet' for years! The pen for editing in Photoshop will be a bonus.

OvinceZ: Well, in my opinion photographers should be allowed to go just about anywhere to record what is going on. Society and governments should give permission to people doing documentary photos.

Everyone with a camera is not a photographer.

More or less anywhere. Individuals will use some sense re where to take photos. Hospitals, construction sites, military bases are okay. Toilets? No thanks except for recording facilities, not people using them. Security is an issue of course.

Let us not forget how they discriminate against so many when they close on a day when most go shopping!

I will keep doing business with B&H. I know the owners are Jewish. So what? Simply one of the best photography stores in the world. They are competent, deliveries are excellent and I enjoy getting their catalogues.

On article Now we know: Sony a9 is sharper than we thought (394 comments in total)

Was the LCD or viewfinder used to focus the lens? I find that the viewfinder delivers the best results. Some former DSLR users still use the LCD which I find odd. Since I need glasses for close viewing the viewfinder solves the problem and I adjust the diopter to suit.

Well, the results certainly spoil the A9 review as published. Since an acknowledged error was made surely a new overall score must be adjusted upwards.

Lots of good ideas for places to shoot photos. Slow it down and it would be great.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (506 comments in total)

"Is there a higher resolution a9R in the works? If Sony's past release schedules are any guide, we'd say it's a near-certainty."

Does dpreview know something we don't know?

Infared: I would buy it in a heartbeat if it fit Canon EF...I am already running two systems..not doing a 3rd..... :-(

Yes, Sigma would sell heaps more cameras if they did what Sony did re being able to fit other lenses via adapters.

Ran Plett: Ooh this 12-24mm is looking interesting, at what, half the price of the Canon version? 11 or 12mm is so difficult to work with though. With the 16-35 f4 L IS, 16mm is usually the widest I would ever need to go. It would be such a specialty lens that it's not worth paying top dollar for the Canon, unless of course you really like that look. Personally, I'd rather have a 12mm 2.8 prime.

Autofocus issues probably won't be present at 12mm f4 :)

If you shoot sunsets you need 12mm or less to capture more of the sky and clouds. Lots of photographers will want this lens.

Long overdue and perhaps better than offerings from Canon and Nikon so far.

OvinceZ: Today I searched for a Sigma 50 mm macro lens for Canon mount but they are no longer available. Imagine my delight to see a Sony FE version. I would prefer a 35 mm macro lens for flowers. Have been successfully using a Sony FE 30 mm macro lens but there is significant vignetting. I can use it handheld even with a Nissin 40 flash attached. Great flower lens on my A7Rii. I removed the rear flange to reduce vignetting. I have the Sony 90 mm macro. Great lens of course but I need more depth of field.

Hi John,

I have the non L Canon 100 macro. Excellent lens but I prefer the Sony 90. I have the Canon 50 macro but find it not so easy to use via manual focus. Prefer 1:1 as well and not 1:2. I had the Sigma 50mm macro but in Sony A mount. So I gave it away with the NEX 7 and 16-80 Zeiss lens.

About 2 years too late. Still an exciting camera from Canon.

OvinceZ: Samsung has lost the plot. I have the Note 4. Still not compelling to upgrade.
Note 5...yawn and disappointment.
Note 7...fancy gimmicks. Who would use Irises to open a phone? I used finger scan on my Note 4 and lost all data because it wouldn't open any more using that feature. Iris scanning is even more risky to use. Lunacy in technology.
Samsung probably include marketing experts in the research and development team and that is what is stopping innovation. All products are looking very similar now.
Remember how Apple insisted people wanted the smaller iphones?
When they released larger phones there was an instant demand for them.
Seems to me Samsung should be leading the way instead of following
Apple.

Eddy M. Yes, I learned about Kies to backup data. Hindsight is a great thing.
