armanius: Are they really native lenses, or a Canon/Nikon lens with a built-in adapter and new electronics? Shape wise, they seem to be the later.

You can get reflections with the adapters in certain situations and you only get 4 axis OSS with a MC-11 so i am pretty confident it’s not just a adapter bolted on the bottom but a proper native lens . The size argument for FF Mirrorless cameras I thought was over, they are not produced or marketed as a size and weight advantage option any longer.

visualenvy: Not sure why Sigma even bothered with this.. they will take a loss on making these "native" mount lenses.

Should have just spent the money and created some brand new lenses that are designed specifically for the FE mount.

I get their "thing" is big f1.4/f1.8 lenses but how about f2.8/f4 with OSS...

and lastly.. Sigma.. where TF is your new 70-200mm? Tamron got you on the zooms.

jagge: It's so hilarious..... They are so desperately late to the party, its obvious that innovation is just not a part of the Nikon skill set. This is the equivalent of Nokia now putting out a teaser hinting to a new revolution, a new phone with a color screen......

Never understand these people writing the “too late” comments, they basically saying everyone who wants a full frame Mirrorless in the future will only want a Sony because they have been doing it longer, utter rubbish.
Looking at Nikon’s track record it won’t be a bad camera, not everyone in the universe will want a Sony.
Also Nikon are only 2nd to the “party” maybe 3rd if you count the Leica SL, it’s just Sony got there early and have done a good job.

StopTheGAS: Where did the ISO button go?
Also they seem to use the familiar kind of non-backlit top LCD screen. No modern panel like the X-H1 does. I wonder if it also has backlit buttons like the D850 in such a small body.

Yes the f5 has a top lcd panel

@stopthegas
The top plate video is the top plate from a film F5, not the new Mirrorless. Google it 👍

I think you are mistaking it with the old Nikon f5 shown in the video.

In reply to:

Mike FL: In low light, lens is too slow + no OIS/IBIS. It is about a whole two stops slower than Pana LX10, and the sensor is not two stops brighter than 1" sensor. Not mention Pana has OIS, and ZOOM.

Slow lens APS-C P&S was good to compete with small sensor P&S before SONY released the first 1" sensor P&S with faster zoom lens.

In this price range LX100 is a better P&S too. If you want cheaper, RX100.M1 or RX100.M2 which has hot shore, and sea of CANONs 1".

Slower & none zoom lens can produce sharper image normally, but the disadvantage is all we can see.

SONY RX1s have slower lens, but the sensor is a stop faster than APS-C, so SONY RX1s are making more sense.

You are talking gibberish, also for reference, cameras are not only judged on iS, low light performance and apertures,

DenImage: Too little too late Nikon.
Den

🙄, no one other than Nikon themselves know what thier new system will offer.
Too many fan boys make daft responses, choice is what we all want, and personal preference is the deciding factor.
Why be so tribal about the camera system you use and everything else is not good enough, get over it saddo’s😬

Paul B Jones: I would personally like to thank everyone who has been beta-testing mirrorless technology over the last 10 years. Looks like it finally about to go live!

🤮 🤮, what a sad fanboy comment

I love Pentax, but they are just to late to the game with DSLR’s with not enough 3rd Party lens/accessory support. This looks a fantastic camera but I do fear for the future of Pentax.

beavertown: Cankon is in big trouble.

When will people understand Sony Sensor division is compleatley different from Sony Cameras. They are in the business of making money, money from selling senors, anyone that thinks they would keep this technochy solely for Sony Cameras doesn’t understand how businesses work🙄

JosephScha: A few days before Sony's announcement Panasonic had a different take on global shutter that didn't get cited as news here. Here's their press release:

In reply to:

Rich Evans: This camera is a real joke. Removed features from the GH5, still can't compete with a 3 year old Sony, does not provide enough resolution for anything (well must be a perfect camera for Instagram), can't compete with a EVA1 (of course because its a bigger sensor then the tiny MicroFT one) and the price. OOoo that price.

Fanboys will come here and say "buy a Hasselblad" or "who needs more than 10 megapixels anyway". But its okay, I recommend them to put their money where their mouth is and show some proof. :D

You obviously haven’t read enough about this camera and it’s intended market to make a sensible comment.

Adam Sharp: I love the Fuji brand but I really had some poor QC lenses and cameras . Seeing how much care they take I'm amazed at what I received when opening the boxes .

Why don’t you just go directly to a bricks and mortar retailer if you have had so many problems, then you can check the product yourself?

In reply to:

chrisno: for those of you who complain a tiny sensor on smartphone got zero idea of the cutting edge technology of smartphone camera

yes they can make one inch sensor even APS-C but will fail miserably like Panasonic did not long ago because a thick smartphone will not attract any customers to buy.

the majority of the users only can accept under 10mm phones nowadays

to push the tech further the only way is to make faster lenses and better software which are also improving low light photography. I am glad to see a F/1.5 and super slow mo on s9, cant wait !

Most are not complaining but the simple fact of the matter is that with tiny sensors you have zero control of depth of field so apature control is pointless.

Strange.

Yawn

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Has anyone at DPR asked Sony what becomes of the trade-ins? Just curious, but the trade-in value is in line with a good rebate so presumably, they could throw the trade-ins in the dumpster.

It's all smoke and mirrors to give you the impression you are getting a fantastic deal, the dealer offer their normal part exchange value, then sony bolsters it with a amount knocked off the camera, the dealer then claims the extra discount back from Sony and the dealer sells the part exchanged item.
The cameras never end up in the hands of Sony.
