zakk9: The next thing will obviously be photo-like 3D renderings of old paintings. Those Rembrandt images are so hopelessly low-res. What on earth was he thinking?

You're talking like someone TODAY shoots b&w, and someone else brings colors to it.
Rembrandt made art and whatever he painted was his choice. The old b&w photos were not always b&w by choice... nor was the exploiting b&w as an art expression (even considering it was the only medium available). Sometimes, you know, you had to shoot a photo and b&w was the only medium available.

Lightroom 6 is not Lightroom Classic...

They better retire CC Classic at the next iteration, since what in the world is the point of using two different apps, with different features? Just treat the cloud as one of the storage devices, plus the local drives, and you got all in one.

Bgpgraebner: Geez. I'm a broke-ass student who lives on approximately $500/month (in Brazil) and even I don't mind paying $10/month for adobe products. Don't you guys get paid for your work or anything? One would think that you can easily embed the cost of a $10/month software in their paid work.

I calculated that with my LR5 and LR6 upgrades, I paid less than 3$/month during the last 4 years. And it's decreasing.

"It's an inevitable truth that Adobe, like any other company, can't please everyone."
True, from now on.

" if you spend hundreds of dollars on a new camera, it seems unrealistic to expect a corporation to accommodate that choice, unpaid." Well, it doesn't seem unrealistic to me, since that's what Affinity Photo is doing TODAY and also what Adobe always did for years before switching to CC. Now that we got subscription only, the last 20 years of software update policies became suddenly unrealistic?

elgol20: Where is the standalone version?

That sucks big time. I'll really have to look somewhere else now, if I want something with good performance and workflow. And in any case I'll have to in the future, when LR 6 won't be compatible with my next camera... :(

vFunct: This camera should finally put to rest the debate over mirrorless, since it is clearly better than any mirrorless camera ever made.

dSLRs will remain king for photographers, while mirrorless will remain a dead end technology.

If you have a mirrorless camera, you should get rid of it, since it's not good.

MikeRan Indeed :) "Toy camera"...

Azathothh, do you realize what my comment was about? Is there a dslr able to shoot 20 fps? NO. And it'll be very hard to find one in the future, and if and when that will happen, mirrorless technology would likely allow en entry camera to shoot VIDEOS in sensor full rez... Is there a dslr able to to shoot with no blackout? NO. Will there be one? Yes, if it adopts guess what? Mirrorless technology (live view, mirror and shutter up). The point is claiming that dslr will always be the king is plain wrong NOW because there are some things that mirrorless ALREADY can do better NOW. You expect mechanical shutters to progress faster than sensors? And you're going to claim dslr will be always superior because TODAY they can shoot faster rates with flash? Seriously? (And I didn't even verify this one). Get a grip, and try to understand what we're talking about here.

And anyway, adding to that: the original poster wrote about the d850 putting "an end to any debate", not even d5 or 1dXII, which is just ridiculous.

Azathothh:
1) 14 fps raw uncompressed: the A9 shoots 12fps uncompressed. And 20 compressed. With no blackout. It's a trade off, no dslr can flip the mirror 20fps, all dslr intrinsecally have blackout, and how the quality is affected in A9's lossy compression is debatable to say the least... we're already very far here from the original claim "dSLRs will remain king for photographers, while mirrorless will remain a dead end technology." aren't we? Shall we wait for the next generations respectively?
2) Flash at 14 fps? That's not a camera thing (not to mention, a mirror/mirrorless thing...), that's a flash (and battery...) thing and I'm not aware of any technology in flash nor battery department able to achieve that.
3) Feeling like a toy: that's your own subjective thing and it doesn't matter in this topic... have you ever held an A9 in your hands anyway? With battery grip possibly? And again, why exactly anyone should be certain that no mirrorless will ever match a dslr in that sense?

A correctio on "old DigitalRev videos where Kai and crew would purposely handicap themselves using inferior cameras like the Barbiecam for, well, no purpose at all."
They actually gave the toy cameras to pro photographers to show how the photographer matters over the gear.

Yep, so could you point me to a dslr which shoots 20 fps with continuous AF, and as good AF as the sony A9? (and with NO viewfinder blackout? ) I read some comparison with the nikon d5 and... not. That's not the one even considering the keep rate only.

I hope your comment will be remembered 10 years from now :D Seriously? Could you please explain, technically, why mirrorless is a "dead end technology"? Why mirrorless won't be able to be improved (albeit they kept doing it until today) and why exactly a future mirrorless sensor won't beat this one?

Causio: Anyone who purchases one of these cameras would shoot raw and process the files on his/her own taste. Hence this comparison is pretty much pointless. It would make more sense for a phone, a compact or any casual shooter friendly mirrorless, not for the top pro gear.

Sure you can tweak jpeg tones on all cameras. But then again what is this comparison about? To tell you that you'd need to tweak the sony's jpg colors a bit if you want canon tones? I don't think that's a very influential point to consider if a canon shooter wants to switch to sony.

In reply to:

Gavinski: These theories and gimmicks are great for students and art historians; but once you're actually busy in the visual arts, it's pretty much all instinct. Your brain develops patterns of responses to visual situations. You reflexively apply your personal experience and knowledge of design and composition to the stimuli you've cultured yourself to. Generally, the more formulas you weave into the process, the worse things get.

What you described is not much of an "instinct", though. And the formulas are analysis of the brain processing, not the starting point.

Bashir Lunat: To all those non Leica user commenting,its none of your business how Leica handles the problem.
We,the Leica users know how to address Leica management and we have always got positive response from them.
The M9,despite problematic CCD, still remains one of the most desireable camera.
You wont read any nonsense in Leica users forums.

Sorry, but your hyper-defensive comment made me chuckle: "It's none of your business"? Really? :D
Guess this thread itself is not our non-Leica-club-excecutive-members' business either?
Post of the day, hats off :D

Peter Lacus: now replace one of the other cameras with a Pentax K-1 + PixelShift and let the fun begin... ;-)

Studio portraiture/fashion with pixel shift? Landscape where there is any wind? Sea? Anything moving? None of these kind of pro shooters would benefit from pixel shift. And MF is in fact not for amateurs.
