Nikita66: Sorry for the apparently dumb question, but I thought E and EF were the same mount?
Can't you mount FF Sony lenses on E mount bodies?

EF is the Canon DSLR mount

mick232: Comments downplaying the significance of market share coming in 3... 2... 1...

Funny how important market share is when talking about how Canon is #1, but then immediately becomes unimportant when Sony overtakes #2

Abbazz: DPReview's picture gallery is a perfect illustration of the fact that using a great lens is not a guarantee that the pictures will look great!

We get it, you’re amazing

NickDakota: What photography review is this? Oh is this a photography story? Wow. This site sucks just as bad as PetaPixel. Oh wait.

And yet you continue to spend your time here... interesting.

Dedecos: Nikon and Canon refused to reveal their mirrorless hardware to third-party lens companies - this will probably be a problem for an auto-focus system that is not great even for the native lens. Looking at the spectacular performance of the Tamron 28-75mm, I believe Sony made the right movement revealing the hardware. Sony users now have many options for an outstanding auto-focus: excellent native glass, excellent third-party glass, adapters for many other brands. I don't know if Canon and Nikon are really doing the right strategy.

@mrizo - this is an article about Tamron. You said Canon doesn’t need to release their mount info because they make great glass for not too much money. It seems pretty reasonable to me then that you’re comparing to Tamron since that’s what the article is about.

@mr.izo - Canon is clearly making great glass, but seriously... for not too much money? You must be joking on that. Their R glass has been really stunning stuff, but the vast majority of it is very very expensive compared to what Tamron offered in the 28-75.

SmilerGrogan: Oh brother, first Nikon's 24-70 f/4 and now this gem? Sony better get ready to do some fancy footwork or this dance is o-v-e-r.

fPrime: I'm often here to point out that lenses render images flatly, but this Canon 28-70/2 actually has lots of good 3D Pop to it. IMHO it renders very prime-like for a zoom. There is no question that it puts Nikon's pokey 24-70/4 for the Z to shame.

Is the rendering worth the price and weight for the convenience? For some it surely will be.

Well the lens is also $3000. It better be good

An f2 zoom has more 3d pop than an f4 one? Alert the media... This does look like an excellent lens though!

Yake: Ooops, forgot some things...

Sony - in 2019 we wish you would...
- make a handholdable ergonomic camera body that doesn't require grip extensions.
- include a top LCD on the A series camera bodies.
- include a battery charger with your $2K A7III.
- reverse engineer Canon's skin tone color.
- upgrade the EVF on the A7III to at least match the EOS R.
- match Canon's state of the art EV-6 low-light autofocus.
- improve your menu system ... please!
- add classic aspect ratios like 1:1 and 4:3.
- solve the PDAF striping in backlight issue.
- improve touch screen functionality.
- copy Canon's innovative lens adapters.

@bokehmon where do you see that happening? I think that is mostly reasonable criticism. I don’t agree with all of it but that’s fine. If anything Canon R users seem to be the oversensitive ones.

Oh, also, I don’t want them to add a top lcd. Waste of space when all the info needed is on the screeen. No thank you!

From your list I would agree with the menus to a certain extent and also touchscreen. On the other issues, I find the ergos to be just fine. I wouldn’t hate it if the grip were more substantial, but it’s fine the way it is. I’ve had no banding issues just like most R users haven’t had banding issues. Low light focusing has also been great for me. The lack of charger has been a complete non issue and I have loved being able to charge my camera with a portable charger while I’m using it! They will certainly update the evf in the next model and that would be a nice change.

AstroStan: Since when are New Years Resolutions made to judge and direct others rather than self reflection and self improvement?

Maybe DPR could make a few real resolutions. Or should we resolve for you? Such as: fewer click-bait "articles" like this one... <g>

Wow, calm down a bit, it’s all a little fun, you don’t need to take a camera article so seriously

Rail2trail: You guys chickened out on declaring the R the worst camera.

@Arun I didn’t say they don’t like Sony bodies, I’m simply saying if they didn’t like one you wouldn’t call it bias. Am I wrong?

@Arun would you have cried bias if they didn’t like a Sony body? Doubt it... what does that say?

(unknown member): Even when they give a Canon lens a first place, they cannot stop themselves from saying something negative about the R. The anti Canon bias is strong with them.

@Arun H. Of course the difference is that Sony has had sensors with higher DR for awhile now. Canon just came out with an f2 zoom that has only started shipping in the last week.

@Arun H, that is not bias. It is weighting one feature over others. Not only that, but how can you weight something that we don’t actually know as factual over something we can measure like dr? Canon and Nikon say they can design things better with their mounts, but only time will tell the full story. Yes, Canon came out with an f1.2 prime and an f2 zoom which Sony doesn’t have, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Sony can’t make them. Time will tell. Also, DR is not the only downside they mention with the R. They also look at focus tracking, continuous speeds, single card slot, 4K video cropping and a higher price tag. Had they rated the R as high as the Sony A7iii with all those downsides a whole different group of people would be claiming bias.

Perhaps they really like the Canon lens and not the body? Why does that have to be bias?

Yeah, the comments here are very surprising.
