  • I used to have 3 - Canon, Sony and Panasonic. Now I am down to Sony and Panasonic only. The Canon m6 I bought was not up to par with even a 4 year old gx7 much less the G85. My 5d2, though ...
  • Yes it is. The A7-2 is about the same price in our country as yours. But I didn't get that. The a6500 is the same price. I would have gone for that instead. The reason is slow if not tentative AF ...
  • Replied in Likely not
    Maybe they will. Putting out lenses, especially of this type is expensive. And to consider the market is smaller, it's like putting in a lot of money for something that will sell only by the ...
  • Replied in I have both
    I live in both worlds - Sony a7-3 and MFT. I had a g85 (which I sold but might get one again or its successor) and a panny gx7. I like both for what they can do. I like the A7-3 because it has ...
  • Replied in I'd wait
    To me, no. If you are not satisfied with the a6000 (I am happy with my old a5100), why not the a6300/a6500? Or why not wait for the a6700? It's bound to come out in the next few months. At least ...
  • Sadly, you've ruled out the g85. But that is the best in the list for U$1000 or slightly lower. To me, only the AF-C is sorely lacking for the G85. If you want something that actually can do the ...
  • Replied in Likely not
    Not yet, till maybe after 2020 when the Tokyo Olympics is over. Right now the priority is getting the 400mm f2.8 out, and maybe a 500mm f4.0. There might be a 600mm in there. Again, for the Olympics. ...
  • Replied in No.
    Even before I owned one, I knew that this was the future. This was around 2010. By 2014-15, I knew that the handwriting was on the wall. It's just counting time. My guess then was 5 years (2020) ...
  • Not exactly true for all brands. The Panasonic CDAF is very fast. Even a 4.5 year old model can beat the canon m6 in AF-S speed even in low light. And even other brands, their CDAF has improved a ...
  • That is true. But if one reasons that way, one will never buy anything. But of course, there will be something new in the pipeline! Companies will fold if they don't offer "new" products out! But ...
  • 2 things. - if you have a good lens in your setup, going to sony or other brands is going to be tougher. However, if you only a kit lens and maybe non-L or expensive lenses, maybe. - why consider a ...
  • Replied in It's simple
    It's simple, they didn't innovate and push tech enough and merge it into a good working value chain. In the film days, basically all else is equal. Everybody can use the same film. So any advantage ...
  • Replied in My first MILC
    My first MILC was the sony nex 5t, the last of the NEX series, before they re-badged it into the älpha series. That was in late 2015. I didn't want to get any new camera, but the a6000/a5100 were ...
  • Your 29:50 recording time then cutting off has nothing to do with overheating. It is the limitation imposed on camera makers to avoid taxes in Europe, so they limit the video to 30min. There is an ...
  • I will dissuade you from getting anything or shifting at this time. There are many reasons. 1 - We are in a transition to mirrorless. Whether you believe that  not is not important. It is still ...
  • Replied in It depends.
    It depends on what you intend to do and if you can live with some limitations. I bought one with around 9k shutter actuations + grip + 3 batts and a 8gb CF card for U$740. I liked the 35FF images ...
  • Replied in No
    That may be fine and true, but its hard to find a lab now in our country that process films, especially color.  And it will cost a lot, and the waiting time now will be days to get y our prints.
  • Replied in No.
    No. Using the same line of reasoning, should one ride a horse? Nothing wrong with trying it though if one wants to. While we are at it, anybody want to shoot in black & white, and process and print ...
  • Any camera maker wants you to stick to their brand. That goes without saying. It's not just Sony. But the demarcation is not the sensor size. It's the price. If the a7-3 is priced the same way as ...
  • Replied in No, it is not.
    No, it's not. Are fuji aps-c cameras just bait for their medium format cameras? Same with an a6500 vs an a7-3. The price difference is a bit of a stretch. There's a u$700 gap there. And why would ...
