Daft Punk: I can't help but wonder if this camera is a bit compromised by the desire to be a "cool looking piece of Nordic gear" compared to the Fuji XF50s, which puts substance ahead of style.

The Fuji just seems a better thought out camera to me.

Someone please tell me if I am missing something here.

Yep, you missing something here.

digilt: Bengtsson:"..But as I said, image quality is our priority – not AF speed."

Do we have to post runway speed limit sign to remind the models to slow down, so they don't exceed the AF limit on the X1D?

How do you shoot models? (thinking...)

Oh so many Vista users complain here. Probably the same people who say my Photoshop 3 still works for me.

In reply to:

zzzxtreme: which one would you rather hang around your neck?

Best are those, who have a camera around the neck hanging with the biggest flash mounted and a 700-200. Of course an utility belt with 5 other lenses is absolute nessesary as well,.

barrym1966: out of these two, the mirrorless body if used professionally over a period of time is more likely to cause medical issues with your hands and finger joints... Another thing to consider when reviewing things. Smaller isnt always better

Big hands here. Grip attached and 70-200 2.8 Canon lens on it most of the time. Very balanced. Sometimes my 28-135 FE PZ big lens on it too. No problems here with healthy issues. No problems with my D800E plus grip and big lens on it too. Both are very well to handle.

Sean65: Best? Article like this only serve to flame the 'Anorak wars' and create division.

I just came here for the comments. It's entertaining.

Jan Chelminski: Not surprising, since it doesn't actually specialize in digital photography. One would not expect TIME to be able to understand that the a7RIII has AWFUL handling when proper (but huge) lenses, such as the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 are attached. I handled that exact setup today, and I couldn't believe how bad it was, meaning the grip is mandatory, which totally changes the whole equation. Try for yourself and you will see what I mean. Anyway, that's why we come here, and not TIME, right? Lol.

Hmmm, I use my A7RII with a Metabones and a 70-200 2.8L. Not bulky at all. Handling is okay.

Waldo Nell: Not wanting to start a war - but why does the Canon not get a green box for resolution in the specs compared table, since 50 is more than the others? Seems like unneeded Canon bashing. Not that 50MP is significant, just feels weird that it was not marked as such.

Some people never heard of an URL-Shortener. It's funny to see these ratstail URLs lol

Angrymagpie: And I'm sitting here looking at stunning photos in the photo books made by photography maestros, wondering how the IQ police in DPReview's comment section would say about these images

@Angrymagpie. Wot? Where have you been the last years? This is THE place #1 of all brickwallshooters, pixel wankers and blackframers of the entire planet.

Akpinxit: None in sane mind would hold such camera without strap like a guy on headline image .

I rent it from time to time from my dealer and I never used a strap. To be honest, I never used a strap on my other cameras too, when I think of it.

Petar Veliki: true, good idea, but how long you need to figure out your new camera !? At least few days...so have 400-500 eur surplus

The X1D is easy to understand. After 1 hour you will use it like your own camera.

turvyT: I tried one the other day. Slow, very long start delay, visor not comparable to a MF with mirror, and a too electronic tact, manual focus not comparable to real manual lenses. The output is weird: nice definition but unreal colors, red and greens too vibrant. Its design is nice though. Toyish medium sized camera.

For me it was completely the way around. Excellent output, great colours, tack sharp images. Very useful interface, nice body. I was in love.

If you do a job for a client the whole day, rent is not expencive at all. It is rather cheap.

In reply to:

LessMirrored19: I think people upgrade from A7r2 to A7r3 for :
10 fps
A9 battery
A9 eye AF
Improved AF
.... not for IQ or DR

Not upgrading my A7RII at the moment. No need for right now. If I upgrade in a year or two, then for IQ and DR. No need for 10FPS, Eye AF etc.

AdrianPocea: Great camera, great lens, don't care about it. Any camera north of Nikon D700 would do the job for event photography. But later than 5d mark iii most of the cameras will help you recover those files when the flash didn't go off and you have a heavily underexposed shot. That's pretty much it. Getting clients, getting a reputation, making money is dependent on totally other factors than what are we talking about here. Making money as a photographer is tough, Making a living out of photography is almost impossible. I know it, you guys know it. All the famous youtubers are making money out of us watching their videos. For them a video with half a million views adds 1800 dollars to their account. In two reviews they bought a new camera. I am not buying into this crap anymore. When a new camera with 18 stops of dr is going to come out and able to track a dragonfly in flight,like our eyes do, then let me know. All the rest is advertising for Jared Polin and Tony Northrup.

I don't use face detection and eye AF on my A7RII much. I use it the old fashioned way most of the time.
