In reply to:

Steven Ar: It is really strange that Sony's cameras does so poorly compared to other cameras with 1 inch sensors. Even the old FZ1000 is noticeably better (and its images are underexposed - a big disadvatange!). The RX10 iv is a mess.

nandadevieast: I own this camera and it’s fantastic. I came here to write this because its being compared with FZ1000. I have owned that too and it didn’t work for me. The images from Sony are better quality and the autofocus (tracking) is exceptional, FZ was no match for it.
Pls see some of the pictures i have made with this camera.

Of course you did Steven!

Good luck in your quest. You have certainly proven something to me 😁!

You didnt have it long enough to fully test and appreciate it then!

Look your entitled to your opinion but thats all it is, your opinion. Nothing more.

My opinion is the RX10 II was better than the FZ1000 let alone the far superior MKIV. Thats my opinion and I fully tested both. No contest!

Anyhow enjoy your FZ. Sounds like its the right budget camera for you.

Not my experience and I have the RX10 4. You?

Steven Ar: I agree with everyone else.
Since you can't upgrade and you can't put the lens on a newer body someday, it is much smarter to get the less expensive FZ1000 or FZ2000 (used or open box - even better).
It is near impossible to see any difference in the output of those cameras and you might save $1000+. A usable touchscreen, stepless aperture, 10bit 4:2:2 output, ND filters means video will be superb too.
You have to remember with fixed lens cameras, one tiny issue and the camera and the lens becomes useless. One scratch on the lens and you have to replace the camera body too.

So the best advice is to stick with the FZ series which outputs virtually identical IQ, and in some cases better video....and possibly save over $1000!!!

@ Steven Ar

Absolutely fine if the FZ is all you need and want. No problem whatsoever with that.

Having owned the FZ1000 I quickly realised the old saying “you get what you pay for”. Great camera for the money and if that is your budget go for it. Personally I hated it, build, lens, overall IQ and as I have mentioned before, that bl@@dy awful buzzing sound all FZ1000’s have all the time they are switched on! Very annoying. If it floats your boat great, but please dont tell me its up there with the best, cause its not!

Agree 100%. I also had the FZ1000.

I was also using (at the time) a RX10 mkII. Sold the FZ as not happy with overall build quality, lens and IQ. Also not happy with that god awful buzzing sound ever present when the FZ was turned on. Think it was the IS but it was certainly loud enough to cause me problems!

I now have RX10 MK4. Its not cheap, its not perfect, but its the best thing out there right now so if you want the best, pony up or just settle for a FZ1000!

Interesting news but I bit the bullet last time with a FT5 that died whilst on holiday in Thailand last year. Water ingress via the lens apparently!? Panasonic not too helpful and would not replace. They simply said take back to vendour for authorised refund which I did.

Anyhow I am now looking for a replacement for this years vacation and going the action cam route. Cheap and cheerful Asaka V50 for £109! Unless of course Panasonic want to send me a FT7 for testing and evaluation 👍😁

surlezi: It's a bit tiring to read names and "fanboy" every other thread.
I see no fanboys here.

I only see 4 category of people:

- people who come here for information,
- people who have information to share,
- people who are excited by a great new camera and talk about it,
- haters who call everyone "fanboy" and quite often denigrate Sony gear with invalid arguments, if not just lies.

Perfect summary.

In reply to:

Thoughts R Us: I just found out that with the A7 III that Sony actually does not include the battery charger with the camera. That's just unacceptable especially on a $2000 unit.

It makes you wonder what else they've gone cheap on with this camera in terms of QA.

Thoughts r us. Your comments make me laugh. I truly believe you are sitting there with a big smile on your face as you type. Must be as you cant possibly be serious.

Anyhow truly hillarious. 😁. I think everyone has a clear picture of who and what we are dealing with here.

By the way, just for the record I think the A7III is a fantastic bit of kit. My only question is do I go for A7III or A7RIII? Better check if the A7RIII comes with a charger!!! 😁👍

HP1999: comparing the RX-10 ii, iii and iv. It almost seems the Mark ii is perfectly suitable if the zoom range is to the user

Obviously had no “hands on” with the mk iv!?

I see the “experts” are out as per usual!

Mostly comments below from those that have never seen, let alone handled the camera!

Hillarious!

dwill23: This sounds like an opinion piece.

yawn...50mp came out YEARS ago.

yeah...my canon 35mm LII is the best 35mm ever, my 16-36mm is the sharpest ever. they gotta pick it up in the lens dept badly. Almost every review on this site has the canon ahead of nikon with lenses.

what about live-view AF? canon has had it for years...still Nikon can't compete.

I call that on the ropes.

Your opinion piece! LOL,

As many before me. Tz100 update please. Improve evf and tilt lcd.
Then you can have some of my money!

On article Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried (352 comments in total)

Never ceases to amaze me how "fellow Photgraphers" can gloat at the misfortune of (the few) other "fellow photographers" with problems. It would appear this place tends to breed these types as you will read below.

I am sad to read these comments that come from Photographers that have clearly never handled the item in question, and have little to no knowledge of the matter. Despite this they must write their total and utter dribble but for what reason? I can only think it must be jealousy!

Personally I have no time for this. Good luck with whatever you shoot with be it Nikon or Canon or whatever.

Simpleman. Thanks for your contributions. You make me laugh so much. Obviously you are a wind up but scary to think you might actually believe what you write!

As for the D750, best Camera I have ever owned (along with my D810). Flare, what flare?

Go ahead guys, take your shot but you do realise how stupid most of you look!

Have a great day.

In reply to:

Wubslin: I'm not allowed to point out that Nikon products have issues; apparently that's being a 'Canon fanboy'.

So I will join in the rest of the users and deny that Nikon products have issues, because only a 'Canon fanboy' would ever claim that.

Hilarious!

You have a great day.

BrumNewsPhotos: How exactly do you replicate this issue, I have taken a few thousand images on mine and don't think I have seen it, but then I don't know what I am looking for!

Cannot replicate this issue on my D750 either!

Guess I am one of the lucky ones as never had a problem with my d40, d50, d80, d90, d300, d700, d800 or current d750 & d810.

Did have a problem with some bateries once but that proved to be the charger. However Nikons response was to send me 3 new batteries FOC which arrived in a couple of days.

My experience with everything Nikon has been flawless.
