vFunct: Photography has been perfected with the D850. The next frontier for Nikon should be video. Canon has done decent with their video lineup.

Come on Nikon, you destroyed everyone else in photography, now let's see a dedicated video camera. All we need is raw sensor output at 240fps. Do it!

None of this 4:2:2, log profile, line-skipping, compression crap... just give us 240fps raw output!

Yes, we'll need 4TB CFExpress cards to record anything, but we're ok with that.

I'd love to see a pro Nikon camera with a built-in 6-axis gyro stabilized gimbal mount, along with VR and Sensor shift stabilization.

And don't forget the built-in ND filter. Absolutely need that.

lets see a nikon mirrorless then it can achieve more with these features

armandino: I purchased this lens last summer specifically for sports in good light and it delivers really well. A9+FE100-400 offers a great flexibility in a small package. The lens is as sharp as a prime. My only gripe is that if you are racking the zoom it throws the camera out of focus. It is a big bummer as it limits its usability and you have to learn to zoom when you do not want to shoot in order to give enough time for the camera to require the focus. Oddly in all the reviews I have seen nobody commented on that.

Excellent news then means the new rx10 will perform similarly also

In reply to:

ShreedharHegde: Is it only me who think pictures posted above are inferior to A6300? Most of the pictures are overexposed, blur or very bad dynamic range. It could be the use of a bad lens, but not really impressive. A $100 point and shoot digital camera takes similar pictures. I am really disappointed with the pictures where the horse is in and also the concert pictures. Skateboard picture lacks clarity, jumping dog shows sports capability, but its not really impressive (background light)

my thoughts overexposed not sure why ,but the indoor basketball shots iso 6400 look nice

On article Photokina 2016: Olympus E-M1 Mark II overview video (280 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gazeomon: For Olympus users the EM1 II maybe a tempting camera to upgrade to. The stats and the camera features look very good, but I don't see any compelling reason to switch from any APSC system. The size advantage is negligible and the image quality maybe comparable (at best). Olympus's 'pro' lens offerings although very good quality are not exactly compact either. I would consider Olympus if I would not be committed any other system.

ok so how can you crop a canon 100-400mm using 24mp to be equal to the 20mp of m43 or even 16 mp earlier sensors you would need a sony a7r2 or canon 5ds r and that 100-400mm weighs in and weighs .5 kilo more .camera weighs 300 grams more than my omd em1 or gx8,canon ef-s weighs 240grams the Olympus 9-18 weighs in 155 grams ,canon efs weighs 18-55 200gramms and 50-250mm weighs in at 375 grams against Panasonic 12-35 at 305 grams which is f2.8 and better optics than the canon
not lighter but much but enough and better quality in smaller size you need a bigger bag to carry your gear also it all factors in and you have to make more lens changes to me over the equal focal range ,come to think of it I could carry another camera also to equal your weight even less lens changes.

Not interested in the adaptor because I do not own an sl or canon lenses but the tripod looks cool.

DFPanno: Lots of silly responses here.

First off - the fact that Leica is charging $7,500 for this body does not make it worth that amount. It is not some sort of platinum standard for imaging - not by a long shot.

(I can guarantee that for 99.9 percent of the people here cannot produce better images with the SL than they can with a $3,200 A7R II)

Secondly Canon makes some fabulous lenses. In fact it makes many lenses that Leica will never make.

If this Novoflex adaptor works well it is a real bonus for SL shooters and a win/win for both companies.

did you know rolex timing is made by zenith although this no bad thing ,as they make the most accurate mechanical watch in the world .
