Wild Light: I keep not buying new cameras because something better is coming.

Funniest part is my 6 year old camera is doing fine.

Buying new cameras is mostly pointless.

Best not to buy anything ever, then.

RandyPD: The dual rubber rings might indicate a 100 or 135 2.8 portrait lens with defocus control (similar to Nikon DC or Sony STF lenses).

Sony STF and Nikon DC are two completely different types of lenses.

xPhoenix: Pretty much negates the size and weight advantage of a ML camera, doesn't it? I can't see how one could even get a comfortable grip on such a tiny body with this massive lens attached. For big glass, DSLR ergonomics seem like the way to go.

Did you know lens tripod collars are built around lens and camera center of gravity...

This is what high end retoucher use most of the time.. i used it for 3 years. Helps if you have a cintiq.

Matt_Anderson: Anyone who shoots in those conditions, like myself, uses a $5 rain sleeve. (For any brand, not just Sony) ( as well as using an umbrella if doable)
Stupid unrealistic article.

A rain sleeve is $4 for two and packs small like an empty sandwich bag, why would someone NOT have one on them? I always have at least 2 on me everywhere I go, even one in my car.

I've killed a couple 5D series cameras with rain before, always have a cover for your cameras.

On article Nikon D850 vs Sony a7R III: Which is best? (1079 comments in total)
In reply to:

AriesII: In my opinion, the winner is the Nikon. Why? Its just more sturdy, more dependable, with a longer lasting battery. The best landscape camera was the D810, and now the D850 will dethrone it. No one wants to swap out batteries after 200-300 shots, its pathetic. Next, the IQ of the Nikon is a winner, as well as the UI. Lenses again, Nikon.

The Sony is the winner in video, hands down. The ISO and DR have the slightest advantage over 640ISO. It's a great improvement over the Mark II, but, its not the best. Based off Sony Alpha's checkered history, its a bit weary on spending 3K for a camera you aren't to sure of. I couldn't trust the A7R II anymore.

The winner? Nikon, slightly.. just like DXO placed it. Why? Simple. Its endless selection of lenses, its longer lasting battery life, the dependability and build quality, IQ, UI and ease of use. Like the A7R Mark II, the Mark III makes an AWESOME studio lens.

More dependable? Do you know how often Nikons get recalled?

Alaska Hawaii photos: If the upcoming Nikon mirrorless is a version of the D850 it could prove interesting.

They couldnt even release the DL series.

privater: "These bison ... stationary, Good thing the Sony a9 can shoot at 20 fps. "

Yeah...

It would take me 2 minutes to go through 200 photos to pick just one. Tall tales.

In reply to:

Battersea: I have found that lenses are more important than the camera for people and events. Fast zooms and faster primes make a difference.

Lenses are nice, but if you cant af quickly during an event, youre toast.

In reply to:

ZeBebito: This lens is as capable as the Zeiss. Waiting for a Sony a 35mm f2 with the same optical quality and no need to spend thousands on G, or overpriced Leica glass. This is more than enough.

35 f2 is attached to rx1

I have this thing, its called a cintiq.

JerryWilliam: Another "Fuller Frame" camera. The original Pentax 645 took a 56×41.5mm image on 120 roll film. When will a REAL 645 sensor be produced?

Phase one XF 100mp sensor.

Then it may be 80mm 1.8 or 1.4!

I love the hasselblad system for the leaf shutter.
