(unknown member): printing businesses have been doing this for decades before they print your 7 foot prints, nothing new

RIPs at printing business are nothing like this at all.

MamiyaMax: With real inflation around 3%, the headline should read that Leica price increases are basically in line with inflation. Of course, this would make this news item irrelevant and pointless.

LOL...the same thing happened with the Yen vs Dollar years ago. Sorry, you are misinformed

d4kk0n: Finally a great move by Nikon! This is how you fight Sony, well done

Nikon has a long history of purchasing Sony sensors and with better processing, getting superior results. So if you want the best from Sony sensors, buy them in the superior Nikon bodies.

With this camera, and the anticipated Canon R1, pros will finally have a mirrorless pro body with great ergonomics.

Kit Lens Avenger: Except they're not that sharp.

Look at "Mia"; eyelashes barely discernible and fine fabric details nonexistent. The kind of details we see in every new len's gallery on DPR.

I'm sure that Sonnar kicks butt; the emulsions just let it down. Film was mush.

@clickalot, your rebuttal showed you totally miss the point of photography. Maybe visit the Casio or beginners forum.

lightandaprayer: If this "motion picture film" is anything like the junk Seattle FilmWorks was pushing between 1976-2000, it should be avoided like the plague. . .

These films have absolutely nothing to do with that, and I think you know that already, but just wanted to troll.

I can see her eyelashes just fine. It is a 2 megapixel jpg. Not sure what you expect from that.

How about some more room around the grip to lens area so my hand doesn’t get squished?

MamiyaMax: Multi scanning, exposure and sampling, is really designed for positive film, not negative. The scanner has more than sufficient range to capture a C41 neg in single pass, regardless of contrast. E6 is a different story.

As I clearly see a difference in denser E6 film, then there is a difference. You are mistaken.

MamiyaMax: Noise slightly inferior to the R5 and Z7ii.

@jayjay, no where have I said the A1 has less noise. I said the exact opposite. You asked if I need new glasses.

@Jayjay, Sorry, I don’t think I need glasses. I can see which has higher noise so easily that no one would need glasses to see it.

In reply to:

Magnar W: Not much differences when looking at results over the full ISO scale, and nothing that would favour one camera over another for real world stills when shooting a static scene.

I would judge other aspects than technical image quality if I had to pick the Canon, Nikon, Panasonic or Sony.

@Magnar, You aren’t really trying to say you cannot see a difference, are you?

Seems the Canon and Nikon are about one stop superior at higher ISO. Easily visible.

@Niko, I used the equalized view. The Sony is visibly inferior at 3200 ISO and above. Sony has a long history of noise reduction issues as well. That said, the results are what matters, and the Canon and Nikon are superior.

MamiyaMax: Seems noise for stills is worse than all the 24mp and higher cameras out there. So much for big pixels giving us better noise.

@rubberdials. I understand. But this was billed by many in the Sony forum as also being a low light monster. Now that the test results are out, these people seemed to have fallen silent and no longer are spouting their incorrect information.

I see in photo 3 that the knuckle is still squished against the lens. Still a design failure. Increase the gap a bit. Not rocket science.
