Alan WF: " Expressing very frank surprise at the idea that some of our readers feel Sony is less committed to APS-C, Sony DI executives assured us that, on the contrary, they are fully committed to APS-C. They pointed in particular to its potential to increase business by its adoption as a second camera for pros (a6300/6500) or a first-time camera for casual users (a5100/6000)."

New APS-C bodies, sure. However, Sony haven't released a new E-mount lens since 2013.

How do you think A-mount shooters feel! New A99m2 is released and still no new or updated lens to go with it! Also when will Sony ever make a Macro Ring Flash? Sony when will you put multiple exposure and intervalometer functions in any of your A and E mount cameras since every other manufacturer does? How about fixing the aperture limit for video on the A-mount! Show me some of that Vision you are talking about!

I rather buy the Tamron 24-70 since it comes with a 6-year warranty and the electronics aren't hacked!

kitsios_spyros: I am trying to find which camera of the above betters Pentax K-p for Image quality. Still, K-p is out of this list. Really?!!!? Looking at the camera selection of the 2017 round ups, it seems to me fair to have K-p being compared to PEN-F, XT-2, even EM1 ii, than vs EOS M5 for example. Out of all these cameras mentioned, K-p is the safer bet for most shooting conditions. So why $1200-2000 and not $1100-$2000?

There are quite a few Pentax cameras to choose for the cheaper round ups and it seems to me odd to omite Pentax from this group, while cramming in the previous group K3ii along with K-p.

Yes, I am a Pentax shooter, but for very solid reasons. I find the selection unfair for a company that diserves at least not to be neglected.

They do the same to the Sony A77m2!

pizdets17: I love how the A99II is not even mentioned in ISO performance since we are comparing sports cameras.

Just like the A77m2 is not compared to anything also!

cgarrard: A question the CEO running the imaging division should be asking: How did Canon and Nikon establish that dominance exactly?

By not dissing and ignoring part of there product line like Sony! Almost total disregard for A-mount will do that! Canon and Nikon would have never done that!

GHPhotography: The Arsenal website says my Sony a6300 is "fully supported". However, as far as I know, the SONY 10 pin remote (contacts hidden in newer Sony camera's micro USB socket)I doesn't have all the functions needed for the product do do everything it says. However, if this device and app really can do automated focus stacks (which there really should be an internal Sony app that can do more than 3 images (I'm looking at you Sony "3 shots only" Bracket "Pro")), I'd be interested. But not interested enough to bet money on Kicksarter. The money they spent on that video alone could have paid for the final product development... :-0

How do you think A-mount shooters feel we don't have any of the Apps that e-mount has so this might work for us A-mount shooters!

AngularJS: Can someone confirm if it shoots 12 fps with black screen / EVF? So basically it's either 8 fps normal shooting or 12 fps pure spray and pray? Thanks!

I can follow focus on my A77m2 at 12FPS no problem the camera locks the apeture at F3.5 but on the A99m2 as seen in this video you can shoot at any apeture! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYYOVXIuxf0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48dc9NwxFr4
