In reply to:

String: I guess I'm missing something... if you are shooting with the Sony G Master lenses, why would you buy the A6500 over the A7II?

And you think the A6500 will be used for sports ? Maybe by soccer moms.

Timbukto: When I first saw the bar shot at 1/2 second I was like....wow is that really IBIS and handheld or tabletop shot. Very impressive IBIS shot on wide angle. You just can't shoot wide slow shutter shots on DSLRs like that because of mirror flop, etc.

I wonder how many stops I can get without IBIS, but with a few more drinks. Not a huge fan of the 24mm f1.8 however. Wonder how many stops you can get on the Sigma 30mm f1.4 and if there are any 3rd party glitches to worry about.

Why would you want to shoot 1/2 handheld? Do you want to shoot ISO200 at night and f/8 ? Anyone interested in sharpness either buys a fast lens or gets a tripod for deliberate long exposure times.

nicolaiecostel: Looks like a toy and is made in China and they charge a whole lot of money for it, 2527 USD in my country. And what's with that focus motor and gears, it looks as if they employed a crack team of engineers from Toys R us to design this thing.

Doesn't look good for Nikon if that's what they call top of the line nowadays.

@Deliverator

Idiot, I meant it gives me reliability issues. Have you even bothered to check out my portofolio ? The D750 gave me plenty great shots, the sh*t that I don't like is the viewfinder electronics going totally blank for 10 minutes, the mirror flapping without reason after I change a lens. I was talking about cheap build by Nikon in that post, what in the world made you think I said the camera is responsible for me not taking good photograps ?????????

Think before you post !

Correct me if I'm wrong but the US, except for cinema stuff and Kodak, was never a big lens producer.

I was reading a review of it, compared to the Canon 85L and the optical quality seemed to be on par with the current 85 1.4G Nikon and a little better that the Canon L, no claims of supperior or stellar optical quality.

Can you point me to sources that can prove that this lens is anywhere near as perfect as the Otus ?

Let's not forget that this is a Nikkor, not a Sigma, they shouldn't have to skimp on build quality and AF motor so they can sell the lens.

I agree but this thing looks flimsy and cheap, we're not exactly talking about some masterfull build, are we ..

If that's how they design and build them, no wonder my D750 gives me the sh*t that it does.

AshMills: Should be good for sales of focus alignment tools, skincare products and chiropractor treatment. Images do look great though.

Has anyone weighed this thing yet, because that important number seems very hidden!?

Nevermind the weight, did you look at the price of a decent 86 mm filter ?

In reply to:

Eric Glam: I've been using the D5300 for about 3 years now.
When the D5500 was announced, I told people to skip it.
Now I'm looking at the specs of this new D5600, and I would still advise to skip it.
The D5600 would give you the same stills & video quality as the D5300.
And I'll bet that Live-view still sucks...

I did check my facts, in fact. And there is no way in hell anyone will start using a camera the moment it's announced.

Lol, the D5300 wasn't even available 3 years ago.

Toselli: Being slightly bigger than 35mm format it will only be suitable to "cheap" medium format cameras. By the way it's interesting to know that not only sony is playing this game!

In no way is this a medium format sensors. It's a stretch to call existing cropped medium format sensors, Medium format. This thing is a 135 sensor.

It has happened multiple times recently so I'm kinda used to getting bad critique, whether it.'s objective or not. It's in the life of every creative.

Correction man: didn't canon start of life by copying Leica ?

"plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose"

I don't know about Canon but nikon started by making cameras by copying Leica, Nkoin's first cameras, the rangefinders, were Leica copies. Their lenses were german copies from various manufacturers.

In reply to:

janist74: Everyone complains about the preis (what I understand), but did you recognise this: "full-resolution RAW images at up to an unprecedented 60 frames"

If this is no typo, then this is brutal. SIXTY FULL RAW FILES PER SECOND. Wow! I hope I can do the bracketing with this speed....

Now Pana needs to update the GH5 rumors: 6k jpegs 30/sec seems obsolete now. :)))

If 60 fps means you get 10 frames buffer then you only shoot for .12 of a second. How deep is the buffer ?

NJOceanView: I'm a loyal iPhone user and would happily take this camera if it could be put inside an Apple device. I'm quite stunned by the IQ in these shots and hope Apple uses this as stimulus for really pushing their own cameras further for their 2017 models.

Lol, laggy and buggy Android is not what apple users crave :)))
