Tonio Loewald: OK. Sony wins.

This is basically everything I've ever wanted in a digital camera. I'll wait for the price to come down a bit but — barring some ridiculous unforeseen flaw — this hits all the right buttons.

Now — telephoto and macro lenses please Sony.

Sorry, but a 10x zoom is not a real serious lens for me (and I am a Sony user)...

Reinhard136: amazing ...... I suppose a built in flash would be getting greedy ...

For a camera in this price range you don't use a built in flash as a controller. You buy some radio trigger, like a Phottix (and yes: there will be more brands available for Sony too)...

Chris Weller: Am I the only one that thinks a version of this sensor is going to end up in a Nikon DSLR by Christmas anyway?

Even if it doesn't, while this camera certainly has a bunch of great new technology as a Nikon shooter who primarily shoots sports, wildlife (birds mostly) and my kids running around, this camera cannot compete with a Nikon D810 or a 750 or a d4 for any of those types of photography.

They don't have serious telephoto lenses, I'm guessing the AF will still not be close to as good (which is absolutely critical for that type of photography).

And for the IQ geeks (like I would have to think you are if you buy a 42 MP camera), the 11+7 bit Raw thing cripples this camera. Which makes it inferior to the D810 for Landscape and Portraiture.

It's a really nice camera, but my belief is that it falls short of the best camera Nikon offers for every single major type of photographic type (sports, wildlife, portraits, landscape.

I might be in the minority, but I also prefer OVF

It took one hour for me not ever wanting to go back to an OVF.

MacroBokeh: you guys complain of the battery, so if sony designed a new battery and made the body bigger or heavier then there will be lots of hatred bec. existing batteries is no longer usable for A7RII and more heavier..seeessh!....I appreciate sony for using the same battery then I will buy a battery grip. problem solved.

This talk about batteries is really not interesting. Just buy a few extra ones and the problem is solved. It's a non issue...

GodSpeaks: I wish Sony would update the design of the body to something a little more aesthetically pleasing.

It's just a matter of taste. I like the design a lot more than most other cameras...

The Davinator: High resolution...and more than likely, superb dynamic range and color depth. Hopely Canon is paying attention.

Canon probably won't wake up, they have been sleeping for years already...

@Helice: you'll wait a long time then. By that time Sony will already have a far more advanced camera that leaves the competition far behind again. Sleep well Canon and Nikon...

PH61: Just like the 600 got a successor (the 610) very soon (after the "oil" incident), Nikon probably will have a 760 very soon (to "solve" the flare incident) :-)

Funny, Nikon never has sensor problems :-)

lima21: I will be purchasing the D750 within another six weeks and need to inquire if such will be safely available by that time. I also would like to inquire if my Nikon 18-200mm lens will work acceptably with the D750. I am upgrading from my antiquated D300.
Can I also get the opinion of purchasing the new model of the 80-400 and using such with the D750. Thanks!

Even if this wouldn't be a crop lens, a kind of lens like that (11x zoom) is not doing any justice to a camera like the 750...

BADGES A GOGO: Do you think this camera is a good choice for a beginner or should I prefer a cheaper one to start please ?

This camera is "a bit" over the top for a beginner I think.
