On article Nikon D850 vs Sony a7R III: Which is best? (1093 comments in total)
In reply to:

Veselin Gramatikov: You do not have criteria. So you can not choose one :)
For me is simple as hell.
Nikon d850 is better because this is F-mount camera with DSLR ergonomics.
- Better general autofocus - d850
- Better autofocus and more native autofocus lens - d850
- Better ergonomics and responsiveness - d850
- Telephoto lens - d850
- battery live with or without grip - d850
- Most probably cheaper as system camera + lens + flashes + acc

Still a7r III have way more features /with native lenses/ but on the field ....these does not count.

"As we said earlier in this slideshow, you can no longer summarily decide which camera is going to be better for a given situation, based simply on whether it's Mirrorless or a DSLR. But with these two cameras it's near impossible to find any situation in which one definitively outshines the other."

maxnimo: Nice, but this article would be more useful if it explained how I can get to Jupiter, the best camera to take with me, and what to wear.

LOL. Needed a good laugh today. Merci !

I really like this type of post. Very informative and interesting. Always GREAT to hear from the real experts even better to know their favorite lenses and why.

"Have your say, what's your favorite Canon lens?"

Without a doubt, the Canon 35 1.4L II. While I've never used a Canon camera or lens I can certainly appreciate the company and it's products and from what I've seen I am very impressed with the stunning corner to corner sharpness wide open, smooth bokeh and 3D pop of the 35 F1.4 II.

Impressive how the DPReview team is all over this topic producing important and non biased data and facts in a timely manner and in a very understandable format. I think this post may be the very first hands-on update of Sony's new 14 bit uncompressed file format. Thank you ! No matter the opinions on this topic good, bad or indifferent, as an a7rII owner myself I am more than pleased that Sony is listening to the consumer and reacting very quickly, not an easy task for a gigantic company. I think we Sony mirrorless photogs have a very interesting future ahead of us.

On article Analysis: Sony a7R II and RX100 IV autofocus systems (747 comments in total)

*** In case you missed it: 'magnify' in playback now magnifies the AF point used at capture, rather than simply magnifying the center of the frame. No more scrolling over to the point of interest in playback to check focus; you now have one-click (albeit somewhat laggy) magnification of what was focused on. This extends to all three cameras: a7R II, RX100 IV, and RX10 II.

Thank you for pointing this out. I will find this feature very helpful

I very much enjoyed this video. Much like I enjoyed the Canon 7D2 video. Keep up the good work DPreview. I hope to see more of these type videos in the future. Very informative to see how others are making magic with our cameras in real life.

"which offers a fast maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its zoom range"

Applying the crop factor, is this new lens really an equivalent f2.8 "throughout its zoom range" or is it really equivalent to 24-83mm f4.2 ?

Tamron 150-600. I use the Amount version with the Sony A77II camera. Who could have imagined birding at 600mm FL( or 900mm FL, Sony 1.5 crop) for just over $2K for both camera and super tele !
