Another example of the clever/foresighted/risk-adverse companies paying twice for the 'risky' businesses. If japan wants to help it's businesses getting out of China, they should fine, tax or close those that operate abroad instead. Why would a company move back when they can see the government will punsih them twice?

No kaizen for H1. It must be perfect already then.

AI and gestures (camera), no thanks. Otherwise it could be interesting.

@dpreview: When evaluating the results, how do you cater for the distribution of voters' preferences? (Assuming people are partial and vote for the lenses they use or consider to use) If you cannot compensate for that, this is just a count of popularity, not saying which is best.

Edit - same thought as liquidsquid below, I guess.

Well, a high count just means commonly appreciated, key-word being "common".

FlyinDoc: It's interesting to read (and watch) DPReview's list of "handful of irritations" about the new camera and see if any of them are important/irritations to me personally. 8 bit video? This is not a pro video camera. It's a stills resolution monster and Sony got the balance right. Lack of raw editing in camera? If I was editing raw files, I would want the full control over global and local adjustments that a proper converter would give you. Rolling shutter in silent shutter? Of course it will have, just like every other camera not named A9.

The two real head scratchers for me are the lack of Touch menus and no preview for Pixel shift file. Yup, those are real bummers. Otherwise, just wow.

MrHollywood - you mix up in camera raw treatment with using the cameras LCD imo.
Either the treatment is purely internal to the camera (in which case you have no access to it, and no influence either), or external interfaces exist (to allow both - very usable). I hope we can agree the former is useless. The latter begs the question exactly when something is in-cam, also-in-cam, mostly-in-cam, and somewhat-in-cam.: Are you allowed to use the rear screen? The EVF? Can it be external? Which parameters can you modify? Camerabuttons only; menu-settings? Or something more?
Some manufacturers allow software on your tabletop to reuse the hardware of the camera for very fast development giving you the benefits of fidelity and speed. Hence no fixed correlation between in-cam development, and use of rear lcd.

In camera RAW development and using a calibrated monitor are not mutually exclusive.

Regarding the Rolling shutter:
If one only read out every say 17'th row and column of the sensor, then offset one row down and/or column right and repeat 288 times, will the "global rolling" then not be one 1/17 of previously, and we would then have "microrolling" or local blur instead? It wouldn't be perfect sharp, but perhaps local blur for fast-moving subjects are preferable?

StoneJack: Nikon kids are future Pulitzer prize photographers.
Canon kids don't know what is 24fps. They also never heard about uncropped 4K.
Sony kids can't hold their overheating cameras so they use gloves. Sony kids also whine most and don't know know what is 10 bit video.
Panasonic kids are growing with internal 10 bit video. However, they are divided between L size and MFT size.
Ricoh kids only shoot street photos with only lens forever. They are introverts.
Olympus kids use only MFT mount. They think the world is stabilized.
Finally, Fujifilm kids are growing as normal kids and don't attack other kids.

And Foveon-kids are afraid of the dark?

What does 4K Bayér correspond to for a Foveon? 1K? 2K?

Lense-non-sense?

How does the "pixel shift modes by precisely moving the sensor in one pixel increments..." require higher resolving power by the lens? If the lens can resolve one pixel in green and the surrounding in red and blue, wouldn't other colour combinations resolve equally as good?

In reply to:

Fotoguy48: So many hatin' on the SD1! I own one purchased from Sigma for 899 2 years ago. It is not my favorite camera, but I don't hate it. First, it is a very solidly built tank of a camera. Second, it is slow as molasses at xmas in processing images. But then, the images and what you can do with them! Oh my!

I also have a little DP2s bought off ebay for 200. Like its big brother it has some limitations, but produces superb images which are very amenable to processing with Sigma's proprietary software.

Sigmas are niche cameras. Always were. Alwsys will be.

" slow as molasses at xmas" ?

Is that in Finland or Australia?
