  • Why do people assume that MILCs are only occupying a higher price bracket? Aren't the M or a6000 series entry level prices? This has been so, for many years! What is certain is that DSLRs are dying...

  • Just tested it and it with my A7-iii. The latest firmware is not just about stability (though I did not experience that with v3.00). For videographers, it breaks the 30min video limit. Well, I can ...
  • Let me get some things out of the way before I address you point for point. 1 - This is not the end of C-N. They can still maneuver and do something to rectify it. However, it does not mean, that ...

    First, very nice shots! :) 2nd - I do not have the A9. I only have the A7-3. However, that video of Jared Polin already shows the advantages of the A9. I don't have to own one to know it. Besides, ...

    Another flawed argument. And it also does not reflect the reality of shooting action. First, let's get rid of your flawed argument in the first sentence. If one is going to use that to defend the ...

    And this is  a BIG, BIG, tech that, if C-N cannot master in their MILC, will cause them to lose even in this market, that many here like to use to tout these companies. There is a failure to ...

    Exactly! Defending 2 platforms is going to be a losing propositions. MILCs only are only defending one. And they are defending the winning side, or the side that will eventually emerge the ...
  • Most likely. Though it really isn't needed if you ask me. Sony can even sell the A7-iii at U$1,400-1,500 by late 2020 to take that hypothetical A5. If they will release an A7-iv by around that ...
  • Replied in Likely Not (YET)
    There is no compelling reason to enter a price war started by Canon. Maybe Nikon might respond. Here are the reasons: - C-N MILC sales are down and not rising. This explains the drastic price cuts ...
  • @Revenant - I thought Panny "got" the same sensor as Nikon. I suppose they opted for the "cheaper" one since they will use DFD. If it is just masked, then they are still there. Of course, it is...

  • @Hautedwg - agree. I've always said that this business is all about innovation. You don't innovate, you die. The bar is the A7-iii. Until the competitors can make one under their brand, the low...

  • Panasonic's best play is to start using PDAF. They have Sony sensors anyway, so they just have to activate it. DFD, is definitely going to set them back. If they had PDAF on these cameras, there's...

  • Replied in Flawed Article
    This is a flawed article. I pasting this from my response to the same article from a facebook page: There is a big flaw in the assumption of this article. And that is TRANSITION TIME. There is ...
  • Actually MILCs are already way better. Think about it, sony is still fronting a 5-year old cameras against Canon's latest M's and low end DSLRs. The a6000 and a5100 are doing well in their price ...
  • @Jay-A, I agree on all your points.

    For P&S, it need not die. Sony has the RX100 and RX10 that does well. Though we don't know how it will do 5 years from now, surely, there is a place for P&S if...

  • To those who like to quote that Canon is no 1 in sales (volume), this is why you should not use that as a metric as the one that determines if a firm is healthy or not. Even if you have 16 years of...

  • It depends, but if you think shooting only in high contrast or dramatic lighting may not need a good dynamic range, if any, it may be the opposite. There are shades of blackness and grays and in ...
  • @SridarC - Yes, the A7-3 is still very viable. But if you intend to shoot real fast action sports, the a6400 will be a better choice. The firmware update will not improve tracking that much in the...

  • @avatar77 - one's preference does not necessarily reflect most or majority's preference. As far as ergo's go, that is subjective. Even more telling is that the world has already voted and if Sony's...
