Better support RAW Therapy. It's free.

vscd: I miss the nagging on Nikon. Canon got a lot of trolls shouting for fixed problems with new CFast Cards in the 1DX2, now Nikon has problems with SD Cards which are quite common for a while... and no one is commenting? What's up? ;)

The article went through dpreview with a lot of comments. I guess you missed it!

Shangri La: So much for mirrorless system's size and weight advantage lol.

@Magnar W
But would you listen to arguments? "Flapping mirrors that smooth out fine details".... do you call this objective? I think you have your own prejudices and didn't get the evolution of modern mirrors (like in the 5DSR). Those problems are gone meanwhile, but the batterysaving OVF and a clear view stayed. And if you need fancy Screens in the dark with focuspeaking you can always use liveview and your rearscreen. Did you notice that you can use your screen as EVF? Would you believe those facts without beeing called fanboy?

I hope so. Because they're real. If you don't believe them I would also tend to call you a Fanboy of Mirrorless ;) Sorry.

Hugh2017: Both Nikon and Canon and Fuji X even are way less expensive. What make this so special to cost so much ? Maybe they cornered the market on FF mirrorless ?

Hugh2017
You don't get it. You cannot compare a 50-140 with a 70-200 on fullframe without taking the DOF into account. The 50-140 is indeed equivalent with f4.2 even if we all know that it's still physically f2.8.

Why betray all APS-C/MFT Users themselves? ;)

No one listened... ;) And the price is ridiculous if it's not minimum beating the Canon EF 70-200 2.8 L IS II. Mirrorless is something for the 28mm-50mm range.

Nothing beats the mighty Canon EF 85mm 1.2L II. ;)

PPierre: Well, it confirms what I was fearing : if you're not rich/don't want to spend $1000 more for a 2MP difference (which is nothing if you consider the whole picture), don't invest in Sony's system. Sony is definitely aiming at the high-end FF market, which is nice, but also feels like a let-down for those who trusted Sony and invested in the A7 or the A6000, hoping they would at least have some "affordable" options, like a $500 50f1.4, or a $500 85f1.8...

I'm really wondering if I should leave Sony or not...

Wasn't the A7 the "born adaptermachine"? Just grab a Canon EF 50mm 1.4 and be lucky.

villagranvicent: I have 2 full frame cameras, the Sony A7 and the Canon 5D. Leaving resolution aside, I can testify the 5Dinosaur delivers -to my eyes- more beautiful files. I am happy to be able to keep both for different uses, but for pure joy, I'll take the 5D any day.

I also still use my old 5D. It holds up pretty well even to todays standards... would be interesting to compare it to todays cams. Apart from Dynamic Range the cam is still great, beating most of todays APS-C Sensors.

TyphoonTW: Came to check how many:"I think Sony's (random model number) is better" comments there were. Was not disappointed.

No, they shouldn't stop to invent, but they should stop to press own standards into the market whose only benefit is to make more money. Like having USB on a device but with own proprietary connector, having a flash hotshoe with contacts compatible to nothing else in the world (not even the middlecontact). My Sony MHC 2700 Hifi (which was superb back then) has a flat cable like SCSI from component to component. I was never able to replace the broken CDPlayer with something except of the original component.

And what was the benefit of Memory Sticks? They were outdated on arrival.

Favorable Exponynt: Poor x-t1 owners

That's really true. Pentaxusers are totally different from Sony/Fuji. They are quiet, polite and mostly highly professional. It's really striking somehow. Fujiuser think they invented the world new (better than fullframe, you know) and Sonyusers push the shadows by 6 stops. Why? No one knows. I guess they only want to show it's possible.

The Pentaxuser goes out, enjoys the cam and mostly keeps the body for 10 years++. Funny.

No. I have no Pentax. ;)

@george1958
Exactly my point. I would never buy anything from them again, I guess. After decades of troubles with proprietary ports and parts I'm still quite angry. At least on some photo-/audioproducts. Sony may have the best sensors, but that will be gone after some time. What remains is Sony and it's attidtude towards customers.

I guess the rule "16MP is enough for everything" will not be valid anymore in the fuji-forums... ;)

Henry McA: Raw files look very soft, even at base iso, compared Nikon D7200 or even some mft cameras.

@Henry
I know the differences between RAW and JPG but I've read a text from Canon about subtle differences of the RAWs coming out of Canon EOS1 series vs. Canon EOS5 or rebel cams. Maindifferences were on colors, but it seemed that reading out from the bayer has also some different approaches on "sharpness". While keeping the RAW on EOS1 more neutral it got more sharpened on others. It was no sharpening in a common way, but more on reading out the bayer. Sadly I didn't find the article, but if I find it again I will post it in here...

Pro cams are more tuned for cleaner raws. Sharpening is mostly the task of the raw converter/Postprocessor. What have been sharpened can't be unsharpened ;) On amateurcams the pictures are set to more saturation, shaprness to pop more out.

In reply to:

thx1138: Is that VF magnification FF equivalent or is it APS-C and is actually 0.77 x 0.667 = 0.51x FF equivalent.

Also what is the weight of the camera, can't see it in the specs.

Good question... but I guess on EVF it's now referring to fullframe. The X-T1 has been told to have an equally view to a Canon 1DX, so it think it's "real" 0.77x. @dpreview: can you clearify?

vscd: 10 Minutes of video until the battery drained. 30 minutes with zwo additional batteries in the grip... wow, seems to be eating dozens of batteries on a regular weddingfilming. :)

Can you explain me the difference why the cam wouln't overhead with the grip? Are the batteries the weak point of overheating?
