  • @Billy_S - Sony should retire the a6000. However, if they want to cover all the fine tooth comb price gaps, it may remain. Not unless they offer the a6300 at U$600ish.

    I think, the a5100 will...

  • Replied in Well said.
    It is a major limitation. As I wrote elsewhere, even if Canon were to acquire the Sony a9 sensor, it still wouldn't be able to muster 20fps without cropping, or losing Ai-Servo, or something ...
  • Why poor <company names>?  It's not as if you have to develop the sensor yourself. Olympus has survive getting theirs from others. So with Nikon and Pentax. That seems patently obvious. Another way ...
  • It is not empty. Technology is the one that brought Canon into being a leader in DSLRs. Their ground breaking use of CMOS put them way ahead of others. You only get to that with massive investment ...
  • Replied in No, they are not
    I don't think so. well, not yet.  Most of these discounts are for the holiday season sales, and clearing inventory of slow moving items.  Though if indeed R series are in the mix, and are heavily ...
  • Replied in Today's cameras
    I won't sway you either way. Personally 9-10 years is a long time to own a camera. But then again, if it still works for you, why buy a new one? What I can say to you, however is, today's jpeg ...
  • It's always split. Your 35-350L will likely have the same split.  Some people are more finicky than others. Or maybe some are just more tolerant. That's where the split is. If you ask me, don't ...
  • Many things don't die or some take a long time to die. There are still film cameras and films (though it will cost a lot now to buy and process and print), black & white monitors, dot matrix ...
  • First, it is not fair to compare the a7-2 + kit lens vs the very best of Oly + the expensive and excellent 12-35 f2.8. So, let's just match up body-to-body. But we don't really have to do that. In ...
  • APS-C or MFT are entry levels too. If you just mean 35FF, then the A7-2 is just U$1,000 with kit lens on sale (in the USA I think). So, it's not really U$2,000. I believe even the canon 6d is ...
  • Replied in Implications
    Most likely they will be heftier. But on the innards, most likely they have made improvements in the internals to move the heat outwards. Not only that, I suspect that their processor will be more ...
  • Simply because they can't at this time. This is what happens when you don't do the R&D for a competitive MILC. And mind you, Nikon is not the one to watch or listen to as to what beat is the most ...
  • It can. But it is already changing its beat. That 5dSR is the start of that. Panasonic has the GH series for video. They created the G9 for fast action photo. MFT's problem is it can't break free ...
  • That old hierarchial type of segmentation will no longer work. What Sony has set, others are adopting. No flaghship models. Only best in class or type of photography. Sony has 4 for 35FF. 1 - A9 ...
  • Replied in It is
    It seems you are ready for it. You will love the a7-3 for these lenses. The 24-105 is well regarded. I opted for the tamron 28-75 f2.8 RXD though. It's not just for the way lower price. It's also ...
  • I have never believed in the color science argument. In the first place, if you shoot raw, you can always grade or pick the color/tone you want regardless of the WB. However, in the past, yes, the ...
  • Replied in Skip the A7R-2
    I am not a canon fan boy. But I did own several cameras through the years and earned quite decently with them. had also lots of lenses till I sold them when I noticed, they are going nowhere. I ...
  • @RubberDials - many will be in denial on this reality. But it is just recent how Canikon unseated Kodak, and other brands in the camera business. Only Fuji survived because Fuji is a smart company....

  • @AlexisH - And knowing that the target is hit is a 3rd thing. It is fairly obvious that Sony hit the target square on and is drilling it till now.

    One has to be just snarky in remarks but blind...

  • @LessMirrored19 - No, they won't dump the aps-c line. That is a very important segment, the same way that Panasonic won't dump MFT when they also build 35FF MILCs. Until such time they can build a...
