NOWHITELENS: There is only one mirrorless FF camera I would consider:
PANASONIC !
For 2 reasons:
The cameras are big enough
AND
Panasonic fans are not nearly as nervous and annoying as Sony fans ;-)

"Panasonic fans are not nearly as nervous and annoying as Sony fans ;-)" says a Panasonic fan trolling on a Sony post. Oh the irony.

DarnGoodPhotos: I can't believe Sony released the half-baked A9. These features should have been there at release. /s

Ehh... I've shot 25 weddings with the a9... its made my job so much easier so I'm glad they released it when they did and are now making it even better.

Horshack: "The Eye AF feature has been expanded to be able to recognize animals' eyes, which Sony says will help both wildlife shooters and photographers taking images of their own pets."

A new era of cat photos will soon be upon us.

Funny but I actually make a decent amount of money selling my dog's portraits on stock photography so not complaining over here! Literally just taking photos of my dogs, in my home, in my PJs and extra $$$ just like that... so yea, bring on animal Eye AF.

Old Cameras: Now if they would only remove all the pictures of peoples fake lives. But then there would be nothing left.

Nothing left but flower photos.

Seems like such a hassle to use and put away for the sake of packing in a camera bag.

I've been paying for Flickr for over a decade and have never stopped simply because the first phase of my career has been with them. During this time I was paying about $2 a month. A small price to pay for keeping my Flickr alive. I'm hoping these changes bring me back otherwise I may have to let go of nostalgia.

nostradamus_8: On paper the best mirrorless offering. Unlike Sony's electronic gadgets that can take photos Panasonic knows how to build polished cameras for real world usage.

Says someone who has probably never shot with a Sony aside from going to Best Buy... and is now an expert on camera handling. Give me a break. Shoot with whatever you want to shoot with and calm down.

Photographers here complain about phone prices... a product that we use daily, multiple times a day and for everything between checking mail, contacting clients, making phone calls, showing work, constant content and social marketing, taking photos and video.... Literally you can run your business (and life) on your phone.

And then you buy a new lens for the same price and we chalk it up as GAS and its ok. lol.

Androole: Give these are JPEGs, its hard to tell if this actually has good image quality. Nothing here looks truly sharp, but I'm sure the RAWs are very good...

Anulu: The 35mm f1.8 looks soft wide open

“To be fair, every lens looks soft wide open.” - that’s what I use to say with Canon. No longer the case with any of my Sony lenses...

Excited to see what this camera has to offer but this teasers, from a marketing perspective, is really lacking. Is a “Always having a camera around, it’s so light, it’s sharp” really the selling point?! I get not wanting to give away too much details but throw me a bone! Lol

stevenbrantley: I would rather have a rectal colonoscopy than try to live with Sony's frustrating camera menus.

How is being able to customize and make your own menu frustrating? You can literally make your own menu. Then add the bazillion custom buttons and quick function menu. It’s rather simple AF

dual12: I'm guessing few of those Sony buyers have ever used a real camera before...hahahaha.

I'm guessing you're still stuck in 2013

Mikee: Sony fanboy over here THRILLED with my new Sony a7III but also pretty darn excited about this announcement.

I'm such a fan of Sony because the boundaries they've pushed so far have led to more successful image all around. Things like fantastic DR, low noise, Eye AF, IBIS (in a FF camera), spot on pin point focus accuracy when shooting wide open, crazy good AF, amazing EVF, etc. etc... all those things have not only made my job easier, but it makes photography fun again. All that, in a smaller package.

Hopefully Nikon and then Canon can do the same.

I have the a9 and a7III and expected to hate both the evf and the lcd on the a7III but luckily for me, it doesn’t bug me one bit going between both.

On article Fujifilm X-T100 review (346 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sactojim: Wow, so many haters of the camera and no one has actually shot with it. Typical rants from the overly negative crowd. Reviews are solid and I'll stick with those.

As an early adopter of the x-pro1, I really wish Fuji innovated much more than they have today. Not hating, I just want more from them because they definitely have the most aesthetically pleasing bodies.

My ultimate dream camera would be something like the x100 series body, FF with IBIS. Perfect for my style of travel photos and videos.

On article Leica X-U (Typ 113) Sample Gallery (157 comments in total)

While I appreciate the intent of this post, there’s absolutely nothing in these photos that would show the advantage of a rugged waterproof apsc camer. These photos could have been taken with any apsc body which is a shame because this is such a niche product.

I actually thought about buying this for a trip to the Philippines last year but ultimately decided against it because of the price tag. Felt a little silly buying a camera for a trip that cost the same as the trip but I almost pulled the trigger considering a lot of the places I travel would benefit from an underwater rugged body.

This post is pretty useless in arguing for the need for it in my case, which I guess is good because I can’t be spending a fortune on an underwater camera.... so, thank you? Haha.

jpl5007: Haha, if you pay $6,699.00 for a laptop you have issues. I could build this thing for 2500. Get real, Apple.

You fail to mention that $3,200 of that $6,699 price tag is by upgrading to 4TB of SSD storage.

I never understand when people complain about prices for products. It's almost like someone complaining about a Range Rover costing 100k when they can get a Hyundai Kona for 20k.... well go on with your Kona then.

princecody: That’s the price of a Nissan Versa lol. I’ll stick to Micro Four Thirds new Panasonic Leica 50-200mm for $1700 🙂

@princecody... never said that sports photographers buying this lens were rich or wealthy. Merely pointing out that it might be an essential tool in their kit in order to get the best possible results, thank god I don’t need it for what I do. But I stil don’t think they’d buy a small Nissan Versa lol. The lens alone would take up half the space in there lmao.

Are your 2 famous photographer friends sports photographers? Would love to see their work.
