Outside of the comments-section a fair comparision seems to be possible...

I have a dream: Some brands improve DR
Others make large selfies screens...

They already improved the DR. The only bad thing is they reserve it for a few bodies, only. Get something else to nag on...

Looks like my old Screen on the Sony TRV-30E. Back in 1996.

sh10453: Hallelujah!!! The laws of physics have been changed. Thanks to Metabones. An f/1.2 becomes an f/0.7 after inserting a chunk of glass, with multiple elements, between it and the camera.
Give them the Nobel Prize for physics!!!

I think you both are right. The Light is the same of course, but speaking only for the Area of the small APS-C Sensor the light is doubled. Depending on the viewpoint.

Ernest M Aquilio: This is exactly the powerhouse that Nikon needed to have a quite formidable line up 7500/500/750/850/D5, excellent! The DSLR is not going anywhere.

@Erk1024
"Both Nikon and Canon are working on FF mirrorless cameras."

Yes, and Sony is working on DSLRs. They call it A99II, remember? They probably knwo that DSLR and Mirrorless can live together. In Peace. Outside of forums.

Studor13: Is there any way to stop morons/trolls who keep pressing the "I own it” and "I had it” options even before the camera is available?

And what exactly is the point of this survey? It's such an annoying and unneccessory “feature”.

Who knows how many guys in the field had the opportunity to test it with NDA? "I had it" does not mean they sold it again, they only *HAD* it. Maybe for one day.

miscellaneous59: Shooting with my Nikon D300... Terrific ergonomics...12 MP is plenty of resolution... I shoot mostly below ISO 1600 with 8 FPS with grip...using quality glass I am yet to be persuaded to drink the "upgrade kool-aid".

The Nikon D300s, D700 or 5D... all about 12MB and semipro/Pro bodies. 12MP seems to be a good spec for a good body. The good thing especially on the D300S is the fantastic ergonomics.

Jonathan Mac: If you can't find any used 400Ds around, you can simulate the low dynamic range by buying a 7D mark II :-)

I buy almost all my gear used these days. If you know what to check for then it's not a problem. I still have my K200D which was available at the same time as the 400D.

@cujel
Black/White film for $5 --> 14EV.

Josh Leavitt: There's plenty of bargains out there for used cameras. I snagged a gently used EOS 5D bundle with a 32GB CF card, CF card reader, 50mm F1.8 STM, 70-210mm F4.5-5.6, and two BP-511 batteries for $510 on Ebay. It was a pretty inexpensive way to get into full-frame.

But like you mentioned, there are some challenges to dynamic range on the older cameras. I find I have to routinely underexpose by 2/3 to 1 full stop when shooting outdoors on sunny days so I don't blow out the sky.

The 5D is a GEM. When I started I decided to get a fairly used 5D instead of a new APS-C for the same price. Never regretted this decision. I never got stuck with APS-C Lenses and could go on with my EF lenses from the film-era.

Miike Dougherty: Several years ago when Adobe's stock was in the 30's and they announced the subscription model, I figured that it wouldn't work and sold my shares after reading all the negative comments. It's now over 170. Oops

Correct, shareholder value often differs from customervalue. That's also a common mistake if someone critizises the Canonmarketing ;)

Morvegil: Looks decent. But I''d rather shoot a 24mm 1.4 or 50mm1.4 Prime any day.

No, I don't. Believe me. You would wonder what even an APS-C Ricoh GR with f2.8 is able to do...

2.8 is a waste on a primelens. Hmm, that 400mm f2.8 is quite expensive and good. Oh, you mean, smaller ones. I like my 40mm f2.8 pancake. F2.8 is good enough, especially for wide lenses if the size is reasonable.

G Sciorio: Capture 1 Pro is better than Lightroom for just about everything and Affinity Photo is just about there to replace Photoshop. Photoshop is becoming a design tool and Lightroom CC is becoming a tool for iPhone photographers.

10TB of storage for $100 a month is INSANE

Affinity sadly is not very useable, at least for me. And Capture one refuses to give me Fuji GFX50S support.

@Stu5
I decide which features I need, and since LR5 there is nothing I would see as a needed update.
@yslee1
For Photoshop the plan may be reasonable, but not for users of a standalone Lightroom.

There is always very much of "what you can do", but in the real world the target audience of a bridgecam are "normal" people with no interest in primes. Mostly. If you have interest in changing lenses you can get a A6000, or cou can get the Canon if you don't like it. I, for example, have no interest in APS-C at all, but that's my choice... and I know what you want me to tell. But it's simply the wrong cam for both of us. Still it's a valid choice for families or people outside of tech-spec-gear-pr0n. While the only lens form Sony which has the same formsize is plain miserable. (16-50). So no match here.

It's cheap? I could buy LR5 for 79€, now I have to pay that every half a year... for nothing new except of some (to be proven) better performance. Are you working @Adobe? :(
