arhmatic: This seems to have it all, except for one little detail - an alternative for the eyecup. All I want is a small, flat circle, just like the standard one on my X-Pro2. Any ideas?

Maybe the eyecup from the x-t1? Look up 'Fujifilm EC-XT Small Eyecup'

In the table on page 2, it'd make more sense to highlight the G7X's nonexistent viewfinder in red, rather than the LX100's field sequential type, since you can always choose not to use it on the LX100.

jamethyst: I am using this lens with the Canon 7D Mark 11 and every shot is to dark and way too grainy I have tried this on various settings and I am not having any luck. I tried on Auto ISO and it always uses a high ISO, has anyone any tips for this?

Keep the aperture open as wide as possible, and the shutter speed as slow as possible, and auto iso. If photos are too dark and grainy then you need a faster lens.

SirPeepsalot: Still didn't get whether the AF is actually worse than the X70 or just doesn't meet 2019 expectations. Same for noisy lens movement.

The lens is the same so it's very likely they're the same in regards to noise. My X70 is pretty noisy when it autofocuses. AF might be worse on the XF10 since I've never had an issue of backfocus with the X70.

brownie314: I think 1" is the new floor. Unless something has a crazy zoom that is unique I see no need for compacts like this. I am pretty sure only the uninformed buy these.

Ah yeah I wasn't trying to make you look bad, just piggybacking off your comment

These large zoom compacts are used by a lot of birders who want something pocketable for record shots. It's pretty cool having such a large optical zoom in such a small package. The quality takes a hit, but it's a compromise like all things in life.

Photato: DPR: "the Mark II doesn't stand apart from its competition in the way its predecessor did. "
I agree 100% with this conclusion.
I had high expectations for the Mark II, firmware functions wise.

However, I don't get the disgust about the EVF, it doesn't bother me, it is good enough to frame subjects.

It's a very personal thing. I used to be able to use these field sequential EVFs just fine, but recently I've started seeing the tearing and it's a bit frazzling and distracting. Yes it's good enough to frame, but it is undoubtedly an inferior EVF and needs to be mentioned.

aarif: you're paying for nothing. no new features

If dxo had built Nik from the ground up, then of course compatibility issues should be fixed for free. But they acquired it from Google. They had to go through tons of someone else's source code and bring it all up to date for recent OS's and versions of lightroom and photoshop. That is not a trivial feat. They still provide the earlier version that google made for free: https://nikcollection.dxo.com/nik-collection-2012/

You're paying for compatibility. No new features, but not nothing. Obviously if you have no compatibility issues don't buy it...

VadymA: The 4K mode is “soft and also quite over-sharpened” :-)

It sounds funny but it's definitely possible. I did this a bunch with my first cheap digital camera. It had a terrible lens that I tried to sharpen up in post, but my efforts ended up only adding noise and halos.

I'm a bit confused about the lens spec. It says it's a 24-720mm equivalent lens. With a 1/2.3" sensor, the crop factor is roughly 5.6. This lens has a real focal length of 4.25-118. Multiply that by 5.6 and we get a range of roughly 24-661mm instead.

In contrast, the Panasonic ZS70 also claims a 24-720mm equivalent lens. The real focal length of that lens is 4.3-129. Multiplied by 5.6 gives roughly 24-722mm.

I can understand small deviances, but this seems far outside the margin of error.

What's going on here? Is Sony cheating the numbers, trying to market a 24-661mm as a 24-720mm?

It's nice to see the equivalent apertures at various focal lengths is pretty much on par with the P900. It's still extremely slow, but at least adding that extra 2000-3000mm range didn't really slow down the 24-2000.

askpatrickw: @dpreview you say here and on the product preacher that the VA does not support the Sony playmemories app, but the Sony site says it is supported... Is that a change from launch?

http://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/disoft/int/playmemories-mobile/en/products.html

It says in the beginning: "The following lists show the applicable products which support the features of “Send To Smartphone” and “Smart Remote Control”."

So this doesn't look like the correct page for the other apps (eg, timelapse).

They talk about point-and-shoots in the article too. You could think of the person in the photograph as one of those who doesn't own an ILC but is contemplating buying one.
