vscd: I guess most people who actually still enjoy doing great stuff on filmemulsions need at least rollfilm (120/220) size to scan.

Mediumformat with my Fuji GX680 also allows Tilt/Shift, that does no depend on the filmformat. My reason to shot mediumformat was the simplicity of using rolls of film and have "unlimited" exposures instead of using large format plates. The difference between 4x5 and 6x8 or 6x17 is not that large to convince me back to larger formats. I love large format, I only think that new scanners should support at least rollfilm... but maybe I'm the only one :]

Maybe you're right, maybe not. I shoot 85% mediumformat only. You should try a roll of 120, you won't believe the difference ;)

vscd: Nikon or Canon. Please give me a SQUARE sensor right now, I can choose the Aspect Ratrio by myself like back with 6x6. Would be nice and is a no-brainer in a Lightcircle of any mount. MFT users could use their 4x3, Fullframe would be 3x2 and so on... most new cams have free aspect ratios anyway. Especially in videomodes.

Why is not utilizing the full sensor not good? That's what practically every videomode on nearly every cam actually does. I guess making a bigger sensor is more expensive, ok, but I'm willing to pay for it. Even mediumformat with bigger sensors come into payable prices.

vscd: I would truly be interested how long the battery of the Sony will work. Not for bashing mirrorless (they suck anyway) but because they have really heavy glass to move. Even on a big Canon Body those big whites are noticeable consuming more power than smaller ones. Plus Image Stabilization.

@HLFM
It's good that you don't have problems with batteries. I had them with Sony. If the A9 does the trick for you it's great... but did you use a 400 f2.8 or 100-400 f4? Not on weddings I guess... a 50 1.8 is no energyeating glass.
Mirrorless cams are simply ridiculous at Sportsphotography where the A9 wants to play...

This is a very capable camera and the first I really would like to try out. Why? Because Panasonic uses one of the very few advantages of mirrorless: large and bright viewfinders, larger than it would be possible with a mirror.
Plus shoulder-display. Nice!

If it would be .999 polished silver it would be black again after a few weeks on Oxygen.

@HFLM
With a batteriegrip? Wow. Do you know that the 5DM3 has also a batteriegrip and goes up to at least 3-4 times better than the Sony?
Did you know that mirrorless cams suck on the battery without even taking a photo? Just for using the EVF... I worked with mirrorless cams (not A9 until now) and it sucks like hell.

I worked with the Fuji GFX50S for several events last year and guess what was the worst factor of this fabulous cam? 2 batteries worked for maybe 40 minutes each on location. My Canon or Nikon would be at 80% after 40 minutes...

Of course he knows, but that wouldn't fit to his "fact". And even £1255 is not 50%.

>Totally wrong.

Did you tell Nikon lately that they should paint their long lenses white like Canon? I guess you know more than their engineers. (Lenses and distances between their elements are even more prone to heath than bodies). Especially on consumerbodies like the A6300 it's very important to get rid of the heat in hours of sportsphotography.

I agree with that, it's just interesting how many people turned lately to this "bad bad bad" camera and make quite good productions out of it. Because at the end the people enjoy DPAF and a good lens-lineup, not needing 4k or pushed shadows by +6EV. Really.

@russbarnes
Yes, $ was a mistake, I mean € in Europe. Not fallen very much IMHO, not more than a A7R2. Feeling better now?

No, outside of forums and comments. In the hand of real photographs than wannabes.

russbarnes: 16 products to vote on, not 1 from Canon. Another massively disappointing year - for camera bodies they are no longer a serious proposition, period.

It was no year where Canon threw out a big new camera (1Dx or 5D), no reason to see any dead bodies swimming down the river... Fuji was also not mentioned, nor Pentax or Leica. They are GREAT. This is not the end. Canon will be back in 2018 with the 7D Mark III (and I guess they will disappoint again,but who knows).

The 6DMKII is already at 50%? It came out for $2099 in Europe and still sits at $1899. Is that you, Donald? Fake News? Even Casey Neistat bought himself a Canon 6DM2 last week, because in the real world DPAF beats 4k ;)

Hillarious. In case *you* are not informed, it still sucks bloody hell. The A9 want's to be an alternative for Nikon D5 or Canon 1DX. The Nikon D5 has 3780 Pictures CIPA and the Sony has 650.
650 was not good 5 year ago when the 5D Mark 3 had already 950.

Face it, out of Sonyforums the mirrorless are still misserable at that. But that was not even my question.
