skanter: Fixed LCD - unusable.

Would I buy a cam with flippy screen? Only if there is no alternative with fixed screen or *maybe* depending on the other great features the cam may give me. But I hate flip screens. Really.

Leonp: Why would one like to have a remote on a string?

With a string you don't need a smartphone. So it's working for everyone and especially for granny at your wedding. It has no powerconsumption and you may even can adapt it to other cams.

twinfighter: DSLR Lenses with built in adapters. Great job Sigma 😅 Maybe try harder next time

Thanks for the info, but it's an older protocol and it's still working... I guess the RF protocol is a successor and faster. It's still awesome how fast a Ef lens reacts... The bitrate is not so important, the old protocol needs less data, maybe.

Who needs Photoshop? Real photographers make art OOC :)

ttran88: Under $1500 will easily be the XT-3 holding it's title. RP will do a little better in the under $1000 bracket. Under $2000 is a certain lock for the A7III for the next few generations of it's competitors.

Thanks for your help.

@Entropy512
Did you programm the EF-protocoll? Sound like you know more then we do.... I wonder how they can be that fast in reality with the "soda straw".

keisvot: When Roger Cicala confirms the results are 'insanely good', you better believe it's not a rebranded Chinese lens.

Who cares where the design was done? Engineers live in every country... Good and bad ones. Everything else is racist, or?

This is nothing new, apple does the same I guess. One of the reasons why some people think their smartphones take the same qualitypictures like a DSLR.

Chinese companies make some of the best lenses available. For example the Nikon 105mm 1.4 is from china: https://aabworld.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/1/4/1479334695000_img_709666.jpg

Sergey Borachev: All hell broke loose, because the sharpest lens ever is not a Leica, Zeiss, ... and not even an L lens?!

😂😆🤣

Truth can be so brutal!

I read the article... I mean a comparision here @dpreview. Together with the Zeiss Sonnar. I admit my comment was a bit unclear in this regard.

Link | Posted on Mar 12, 2019 at 06:25 UTC

I guess the real competitor in sharpness would be the Zeiss Apo Sonnar 135mm f2 which outspecs most other 135mm lenses... would be interesting to see the results because Zeiss has a very long "friendship" with Sony. (The Zeiss is known to be equally good as the OTUS, while being a steal at <$1600). Sony is also a "Sonnar"-type. Maybe the successor? The Zeiss seems to be off-market now.

A comparision vs. the Sigma 135mm f1.8 would be interesting...

I think no one expected it to be rebranded Chinese stuff, rebranded Zeiss-stuff maybe. But well done, Sony.

Priceless. They all look like normal workers, only the beard smells like parfum.

cameraobscurer: What an abomination.

m4/3 paired with a Canon mount (just why when m4/3 lenses are excellent, smaller & cheaper), Android 7.1 (pushing nearly 3 years old and completely deprecated), no support for SDXC.

Surely this has to be a joke?

@techjedi.
Jepp, that would be a clever idea. Cover up both mounts with adapter. But I guess it's possible to build a EF->MFT adapter for mirrless cams. Some MFT lenses could even fit into the large circle and will intrude like a pancake ;)

...or they release a MFT-Version, soon.

vscd: It's expensive, but even Sony wants$3500-$4000 for a Sony RX1R II. Both are fullframe with a fixed lens and have a high resolution sensor. Apart from that the Sony is only an f2 lens. So, it may be surprising for quite a few but building a small fullframe cam with IS, highresolution sensor and a fast prime is really expensive to do....

I was not sure about IBIS on the Sony, so I left it out. But I think this cam will have quite a few fans, soon... I also kinda like the battery. It's working like a magazine on a gun. Push the button an put in the next.

Really? A Q2? Or analog?

DiffractionLtd: I actually tried a Canon lens on a 4/3rds camera once. It didn't perform as well as an Olympus kit lens that cost 1/2 as much.

They were indeed serious, but they also bought a serious company which was already on top-level with market leading products like the Minolta Dynax series. The Dynax 7D and 5D were already digital... so Sony has only to do some minor changes. Yongnuo has nothing to start from, so they use old patents from canon. But I see what they do on flashes, it's seriously good working and no crap. Give them time.

Have to try this out with a Leica Monochrome! ;)
