I would take the a9, but if I had to pay for it, then I'd definitely get the a7RII instead :).

In reply to:

ecka84: So, after you edit an image using this new amazing monitor and make it incredibly realistic HDR and stuff, how would it look like on a normal screen for the rest 99.99% of the world?

It's like a new TV commercial, when they show you how nice it is ... sharp, bright, contrasty and natural colors ... while doing all that through your old TV while you're watching it.

haziz: To DPReview Staff: Will you please drop this aperture equivalence nonsense.

@Tommi K1
"You can't use a 36Mpix FF to make a same detailed 3x2m print like you can use a 100Mpix MF."
- Actually, I can. It is called STITCHING, which allows me to make even much more detailed 3x2m prints.

"Even if you calculate the lens "equivalence", you are working with totally different image sizes and detail sizes and you will find that other has different DOF even when by "lens equivalence" they should be same."
- and guess what ... when stitching images shot with 300/5.6 lens on FF, you can get similar DoF and bokeh effect of a larger format camera (Brenizer Method).
Now the weirdest thing is that all this is perfectly in sync with the 'Equivalence'.

And then there are focal reducers (speed boosters), which follow exactly the same equivalence rules as well. Is that a coincidence? Maybe a conspiracy?
I don't think so ... . I say, theres too much ignorant people on the Internet.

MistaHaid: "How much would it cost a pro to switch to MF Fuji"

Please!!

Most outspoken pro "switchers" are switching for free (by being sponsored while making the "noise") or even make good money out of it. And that tells a lot about the main reason people switch systems at all. I mean, with Fuji theres more pain than gain at this point in time.

Physics is hard. Therefore, let's ignore it? Let's stay stupid? Really?

In reply to:

TN Args: The Canon was introduced at $2200. Why should this one be $300 pricier?

Because it got a G spot and a button.

In reply to:

ecka84: Well, this GF 110mm F2 is still equivalent to FF 87mm F1.6. You will get a little better image quality, due to a bit larger sensor, obviously. But, for the price, it's not more enough for me (only 60something%, not 200%).
I'm so amused by this Fuji war against FF :D ... so funny, so capricious and hysterical :)). OK, Sony didn't let you buy their best FF sensor (and/or spoil it with xTrans), fine, get over it already. Or we'll just keep laughing at you and your troll army till you grow up.

@stevo23
Who cares ... Forget Fuji. The Sony a9 came out :)

@sts2
"... as if shallow DOF is the only reason for buying this camera." - I'd never say something that stupid. Stop trying to read between the lines, before you get paranoid or something.
It's all connected - FL, aperture, sensor size, lens size, quality, noise. While DoF is only a side effect and an attribute or a characteristic of the amount of light used to create an image. Quality ~ information ~ amount of light ~ DoF.
What type of photographer am I? ... the one who uses photography as a tool and a piece of technology, NOT a woo-woo superstition, touchy-feely, hipster, art fetish and freaking magic. What type of photographer are you?

@IdM photography
Where have you been all these years of Fuji propaganda? :) You should at least read some interviews, to make things clear. Welcome back :)
FF market is not crowded. Specially the reasonably priced part of it. There's literally 5 cameras since 2012.

The sound you're hearing is in your head :). Therefore, you must be the hysterical one, not me.

In reply to:

Henry McA: Their lack of innovation is mind boggling. Unless you NEEED 8fps and faster AF, the 7200 is still the better camera.

@entoman
I'm sorry to hear that. $#!t happens, I guess. Did you RMA the card? It should come with Lifetime Warranty.

It failed because it is an SD card. That's what SD cards do :) ... they fail, and mostly due to human factor - touching card contacts; using cheap USB readers and hubs; buying questionably cheap cards on ebay from china :) or local resellers of the same junk; formatting cards 50 times a day for no reason and using a pile of small capacity cards instead of a large one, maximize the chance of failure.

In reply to:

PorscheDoc: I am sure that the IQ will be very high, but at $2k for a f/2.8 lens, I will wait to see how it compares to the Sigma 135 f/1.8 Art. I use multiple systems and routinely adapt Canon and Nikon lens to Sony E/FE.

Who told you that? :)

In reply to:

ecka84: Not sure why would I take this one over the Batis 85.

It's a $2000 135mm F2.8 lens.
Actually, I'm just being sarcastic :). They both look unreasonably expensive to me. I mean F1.8-F2.8 ... jeez ... . I would get the FE85/1.8 instead.
Making mirrorless smaller by sacrificing the F-stop, while keeping the high price, is just stupid. The Apo-Sonnar is only $1500.
