Betico: These Chinese manufactures are now as good, if not better, than their Japanese competitors. One simple example:
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85/G80 is as good as the Fujifilm X-T2, but it costs almost half of the price.

You mean Panasonic is a Chinese manufacturer?

h2k: I don't think it's not absolutely clear in the current news text if the focal ranges mentioned are absolute numbers or FF equivalent. They may be absolute numbers, but then you should mention the equivalent values too.

correct me if I'm wrong and my bad English, the factor 1.5 is crop factor, not focal length multiplier, so 70-300mm on 1 system does not mean you can zoom further than the similar lens on Fx system

(unknown member): It is very slow, its shutter lag is dreadful (Imaging-Resource A7R)
Measured pre-focussed lag is 0.163 secs, and manual focus lag (for all those legacy lenses raved about), is a staggeringly slow 0.261 secs. So no way except for still life will you ever get the picture YOU took.

My mirrorless Sony R1 from 2005 has a prefocussed shutter lag of 0.007 secs, over TWENTY_THREE TIMES FASTER.

Now, as there is no earthly reason why this should be (DSLRs full-frame ones with mirrors were managing 0.039 (1D) and 0.042-0.057 (1ds 1dsMkii, D2x D3 D3x etc ) years ago, Sony is again like so many other companies determined to make you spend and spend by upgrading, because they will sort this out, one, or two, or three models on, instead of having done it now, just as everyone held off putting in dust control , full-frame sensors etc for years and years.Its called programmed obsolescence, duh!!

So the R1 is still a better machine, and its 24-120mm lens is superb. Yours for £200!!

Sorry, mmy mistake, I thought it was RX1 :D

DR seems not so good, high light zone was often washed out detail

Her sleeves were blown out or I've mistaken? And I feel the pic is too flat.
