Funny Valentine: Sony needs to improve their firmware game, because now they're terrible. Fake eye AF on a7IV, no animal AF for a7SIII and A1, a7IV features aren't added to flagship a1 and a7SIII.

not in video mode though

This episode video quality was particularly low, since it was filmed with the R7, it had that digital over-sharpened look, with high saturation and the tint too much shifting to the red.

In comparison episodes shot on the GH6 look so much better.

On article DPReview TV Classics: Canon EOS R review in Hawaii (109 comments in total)

I think we can all agree the original EOS R aged like milk. I'm not sure if it deserves the title "classic". On the other hand some cameras are really future classics and will be remembered for decades because of their breakthrough technology: Sony a7III, Panasonic GH5, Samsung Nx1, Nikon D850,...

TheRealYeats: Hopefully within the next half-decade Panasonic will release a true successor to the G9.

I doubt it, this new 25mp sensor is really not suited for photography (terrible DR)

EXkurogane: The bad part of Canon? Easy.
Making you pay $1700 for an L lens, but the lens does not cover the entire image circle of a full frame sensor and uses digital correction to stretch the image. I'm looking at you 14-35 f4L. I can accept this maybe in a $300 lens but not one that's close to $2k after the latest round of price increments.

And as mentioned in the video. Efm mount is dying, EF mount is dead, and they'd no clear direction on the lower end segment of the market.

There are many Canon RF lenses that don't cover the image sensor, the 24-105 STM and 24-240 USM have that problem too.

Funny Valentine: Again with Canon RF the weakest point is the lens lineup: STM motors, no weather sealing, noisy autofocus.

Again I don't understand why TRU ignores the RF 50mm f/1.8, 35mm f/1.8, 85mm f/2, 16mm f/2.8, which are trombone style external AF with loud buzzing motors, and are sold at the same price as Sigma/Sony/Panasonic/Nikon competitors, which are totally silent, internal AF and sealed.

Also some RF lenses don't even cover the full length of the image sensor: RF 24-240 and RF 24-105 STM: they have vignetting so strong that the corners are completely cut off and black.

The point is with other mounts (E/L/Z mount) these problems are not present. With Canon RF you have to pay big money to get the L lenses just to enjoy basic build quality and AF performance. With other brands in E/L/Z mount you get canon L glass quality from entry/mid range lenses. That's the point.

Why are you ignoring a big portion of the RF lens lineup ? you know the lenses that extend when doing AF and making a loud buzzing noise. The RF line up has a bunch of those lenses.

Not all lenses in the RF lineup are L lenses. Also some of the L lenses have external AF too.

Nice idea from Viltrox.

More lenses should be made in white, because in hot summers and in direct sun they would get less warm, and sustain less damage to the optics alignments.

The only problem it's hard to trust a no name brand such as Viltrox, am I wrong ? in EU their 85mm lenses are sold almost at the same price as Sony OEM lenses. Who in their right mind would pick the viltrox ??? mind boggling

On article DPReview TV: Sony 24-70mm F2.8 GM II Review (324 comments in total)
In reply to:

papajohnny: I guess manufacturers finally got that their customers don't like heavy lenses. How long will it take them to understand that their customers don't like heavy cameras either.

there's one manufacturer that doesn't understand this: Panasonic: S1, S1R, S1H, their lenses, OMG...

and Canon is also very stubborn with their heavy big lenses: RF 15-35 f/2.8, RF 24-70 f/2.8... they had to incorporate OIS in most of their lenses because their cripple hammer policy doesn't allow them to put IBIS in all cameras... you have to pay for your OIS in each lens you buy.

Malling: Fine lens boring range, but at least it’s now smallish and lighter and not much more expensive then the old.

for professional/production there may be some utility, but for the average hobbyist/enthusiast the 24-70 will mostly bring frustration and make them wish they bought bright primes instead.

The national TV broadcast in my country uses camcorders for their documentary btw.

the problem with 24-70 f/2.8 lenses are:
- is it wide enough ? No
- can it close focus for macro ? No
- is it telephoto enough for isolating a subject ? No
- is it bright enough for astro/low light ? No
- can it do portrait ? No
- can it do wildlife ? No

I really don't see the utility of a 24-70, it's just the typical smartphone / iPhone range that we already have in our pockets 24/7

Funny Valentine: claiming the lack of OIS as a "downside" is really preposterous, since Olympus has the best IBIS that outperform all OIS from all brands (I'm not even exaggerating) even up to 150mm.

I can manage 2 sec handheld shots with a 300mm lens (600mm FoV) on the em1.2 and em1.3: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64582378
150mm really isn't a challenge for the olympus flagship IBIS

This lens and the Z9 are too expensive as a wildlife/hobbyist setup. At this price I would pick an OM-1 with the Olympus 150-400 f/4.5 PRO and enjoy the comfort of a zoom, TC, and higher magnification ratio for close up wildlife. And with the money left I would buy a Sony FF kit for other genre of photography.

Raist3d: Deleted - looks like I made mistake when I was dialing something leading to different observations.

I think this sort of kills any desire for a GH6 as a stills camera over the OM-1. Panasonic should double down on the video aspect of it and recommend something else for stills.

It's a bit odd to see they dropped the ball this way.

no the S1R scores below the a7RIII in every metric measurements: https://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Panasonic%20Lumix%20DC-S1R,Sony%20ILCE-7RM3

SUPER-ELMAR: Resolution similar to 20MP sensors but lower DR. High ISO looks worse than recent M43. Puzzling decision to push non Sony sensor into GH6. Hopefully will correct course with subsequent M43 photo oriented bodies.

their R&D budget went into buying that 25MP sensor from tower. I doubt Panasonic will make a U turn and a go back to Sony and beg for sensors. I think we will see this GH6 25mp sensor in the next Panasonic cameras for the next 5-6 years to come.

it was expected. Panasonic had to get the GH6 sensor from Tower, they have sensors that are noticeably inferior to Sony sensors. The same happened with the Panasonic S1R (tower sensor), the S1R was noticeably inferior to the Sony a7RIII.

I will wait for DXOmarks and photonstophotos tests to draw any conclusion. But on my screen the jpeg GH6 files look much sharper and have less noise than the OM-1 at any ISO. Can't tell for the RAW files.
