EthanP99: This will be my new travel camera/social media cam.

Because even if I had the best quality smart phone out there, still does not equal the quality of a FF camera that has a matched lens. Thats why I have RX1 also. This camera skips a step transfer to phone.

LifeAfter: Perfect, now we’re waiting metabones to introduce RF to FE adapter for sony

Sony already has an amazing 50 1.4 that could match or beat the 1.2 in quality, its also $700 less. Coloring is all down to processingand theres nothing wrong with Sony colors. Who will wany a 3lb f2 lens costing $3000? Thata reallyan absurd statement, sony has all the lenses it needs without needing an adapter.

AdrianPocea: Look at the sample gallery , guys, stop chatting if you can't afford and have no intention to buy the camera anyway. The pictures look MIND BLOWING STUNNINGLY MAGNIFICENT. The 50 1.2 wipes the floor(considering the price) with any Zeiss overpriced snobbish ,weird second name lens. It is incredibly sharp. And the colors... Sony needs to be reborn twice,no, three times, in order to produce such colors out of the camera.

Sony 50 1.4 Zeiss vs Canon 50 1.2, needs a side by side test.

nikoh: In long term, I anticipate larger mount diameter helping Canon and Nikon have much more playroom when designing for example wide angle lenses, when compared to Sony APS sized mount. The good thing with Sony mount spec is that it is somewhat more open to third parties.

But in future Sigma, Tamron and other need to decide if they want to design lenses for Canon specs and then do minor tweaks to make them fit Nikon that has slightly more versatile mount. Or if they want to compromise the lens design just because of Sony mount. I suspect that since Panasonic has had time to think about the mount dimensions, they will also come up with mount specs similar to Canon & Nikon. And since Panasonic is not that big of a player, they hopefully have a shared mount with other smaller companies.

So while the Sony lens lineup is somewhat competitive at the moment, I expect the situation is quite different in 5 years or so.

Thats fine, Sony already has lenses covering 12-400mm, no need to change the mount.

if you go aftermarket, it drops to 10mm. Mount size is irrelevant.

Peter CS: As a Nikon shooter, I wish the Z series had an F to Z adapter with built in filters and a full swivel screen. Also, gladly pay the up-charge to go from 24mm to 30mp. However, single SD card and no built-in IS is a deal killer. Control layout also looks suspect. Looks like it is best to wait a generation or two for all new, mirrorless systems. Last chance - Maybe Panasonic will get it all correct on the first try?

Because that was what was available at the time. I wonder why cars became so popular? Best stick to your horse and buggy!

Andrew Butterfield: I imagine the folks at Sony are relieved. For the second time. And by the time the new Nikons and Canons are in the hands of first adopters, no doubt Sony will have the A7 IV and its siblings more or less ready. I don't think these new FF camera systems are terrible, but I am surprised they're not more adventurous and ambitious. Is it risk-averse-ness or lack of technology? I can't tell. Looking forward to seeing what Panasonic does in this area though because they are neither risk-averse nor lacking technology. Interesting times.

It's the lack of tech. Companies know they will have to WOW people with a product to make good sales. Canon and Nikon just last the resources to make tech like Sony.

Edmond Leung: How long can Sony survive in the camera industry? One year or two years?
Most likely, Sony will quit this market shortly; just like Samsung did.
What are the residual value of Sony cameras and lenses after they quit this market? Good luck to the Sony users.

No sign of a 6d2 in the top 100.. BUT a7III is #26 out of ALL cameras. in fact its the only camera over $1100 (other than the SONY rx100m6) in the entire list. The a7iii is doing amazingly well.

thx1138: Whew I've just been removed from the open beta program. Dodged a bullet there.

Nikon developed the Z7 to compete with the a7Rii, which it basically is, Nikon had no idea about the a7rIII, and wont know about the 4th gen, they will always be behind unless they think forward.
