On article Nikon D850 sensor confirmed as Sony-made (566 comments in total)

Nikon is only as good as their vendor ( and what the vendor can / will do for their specific needs ). Not a great place to be if your trying (and need to) leap frog the competition in a shrinking market place.

Matt_Anderson: Are the owner(s) the Alt- Right fanatics still ?
I love their hardware, but like the owners of Uline, I won't buy their product given the alt right agenda.

Photogeek, I will not willingly spend a thousand dollars on something like a tripod , knowing the profits support ideals I'm abhorrently against. So in this case, yes. Presuming it is an alt right owner. I did phrase my post as a question, asking for clarification.

I can think of several personal friends who are professional photographers (including myself) who have gone from:
Nikon DX > Canon 5D > Canon 5D2 > Nikon D800(E) > Nikon D810 > Sony A7R2 > Sony A7R3

Sony must be doing something right ;)

How the hell did Sony find a place in a very competitive market ?
Innovation, Market Research, Value to Customers, Segmentation, Understanding the Distribution Strategy, and Consumer Behaviors.

Seems Sony has figured this out, and evolved, much better and aggressivley compared to it's CanNikon competitors...

I'll still take the NEC PA272W, the industry standard at a relatively affordable price...

Matt_Anderson: I've got the 15mm f/2 FE lens ( Using on my A7RIII ). It's fan f*n tastic !
Small, sharp, built like a Zeiss. One of the best deals out there.

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.

"Matt I wanted to diss you so bad. But damn son your portfolio is damn impressive. Beautiful shots, amazing compositions, I really dig the symmetry. Awesome work. Yet it's not cool saying betting someone is not pro. Like who the **** you think you are dude?" Achiron, thanks. I'm an aggressive trigger happy powerlifter who takes photos, and is quite irritable some days.

ozturert, betting your not a pro. If I have to explain why pro's use rain sleeves, you probably wouldn't understand.

Sigma, Chop Chop!

Sigma FE mount lenses require a redesign for optimization.
MC-11 is a temporary band-aid.

Matt_Anderson: Having been a Sony user for just a couple months, Nikon and Canon before that.
I have to say, the A7RIII has reinvigorated my excitement for the actual hardware of a camera system. Like when I got my first digital camera ( changing from film ).
The 24-105, 85 1.8, and 100-400 have been pleasant surprises.
The general speed increases the Sony A7RIII has over the A7RII are worth the upgrade ( menus, focus, chimping, etc.. ) I won't miss having to calibrate all of my Nikon lenses to each body...

@ Nekro what adapter ?

I bought the A7RII used, although, it only had 800 shots on it. Got it for a steal.
Actually I'm more of a WA shooter. ( see my website )I'm testing out the 16-35 as well as a batis, loxia, Laowa, and some other lenses. Some great options for wide angles. Also, it's quite nice to have so many lenses available via adapter. Focus peaking and zebras really do make nailing focus and exposure an easy task for MF lenses.
I used a Kipon adapter to put my Nikon lenses on the Sony, and the results were great! ( Manual focus / aperture ) It's a nice option for Nikon users to try a Sony body with their glass. You can get a minty A7RII right now for $1650. Adapter is $85.

@ umeet: Bought a A7RII in October, tested it against my pro Nikon setup on a 3 week trip hiking through the Hawaiian islands. Compared the two systems exhaustively. Used in rain, surf, extreme heat. Recorded hours of 4K video as well. Returning from the trip I sold all my Nikon gear. (D810 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 200-500, 85/1.4, 50/1.4 Art all sold.) Ordered the A7RIII and more G lenses . Not looking back...
