DiffractionLtd: Why us a low-light Sony as a demo? Use an APS or m4/3rds where people always complain about noise.

Because m4/3 noise is beyond help, even for AI ๐Ÿ˜‰

Better than nothing, though ;)

Would have been nice if all the 'enhancements' were planted before the camera rolled out a year ago. Make no mistake, I love my X100F as much as my wife enjoys her XT20, but knowing that the cameras have always been capable of those 'upgrades' only not implemented...

So my X100F stays old, I guess

JeffGM: I have never really understood the overpriced, underperforming, but "We have more bling" market. It is even stranger to increase the price on already overpriced camera gear. Oh well, no one really cares whether I understand it or not, so I guess I will just stick to my much less expensive gear that works as good or much better and has no bling.

"Euphoria ( /juหหˆfษ”หriษ™/ ( listen)) is an affective state in which a person experiences pleasure or excitement and intense feelings of well-being and happiness. Certain drugs, many of which are addictive, can cause euphoria, which at least partially motivates their recreational use."

Replace drugs with Leicas.

It's normal. These Leica products are getting older, and as usual Leica stuffs are getting more expensive as they age.

So, DSLR is still dead, right?

Kandid: OK a scenario. Say I have a nice Mercedes - drives well etc. Not cheap!
Then Sony brings out an admittedly good car - spec wise maybe better than my Merc! And a very good price!
HOWEVER when I bought my Merc I also purchased the dedicated drive and garage plus I bought the matching caravan - none of which works properly with the Sony, and would need to be replaced by the very expensive Sony equivalents.
I also know that within a year or so Mercedes will bring out a new car that fits all my bits that matches or exceeds the Sony.
Please Please explain why anyone in those circumstances would change to the Sony??
btw happy to accept new buyers might go for the Sony.....

You see, my Sony doesn't need a garage. - just a good camera bag like a Hadley small...

abe4652: I'm not seeing a huge difference between the EM1 Mark II and the A7iii at 200 ISO.

Why is that?

Better yet, all over the scene the A7iii shows much better micro contrast and sharpness. Lens related, I know. But for the same price...LOL wait until iso800++ and tell me one could not see the difference!

Oops, just made myself sound like a Sony fanboy while I use Canon ;)

Because it's good for you that you don't see the difference :)

Level up in term of what? Mediocrity?

armanius: I wonder if the sale of Pepto Bismol increases each time DPR reviews a camera of high interest. The heartburn seems overwhelming to many.

Naaah only the smaller sensor owners suffer from that

Link | Posted on Mar 16, 2018 at 06:22 UTC

I thought releasing the 6D2 with sub-par sensor was offensive already :)

kelstertx: So after 6 years, we finally have Tamron making native E mount lenses. That seems like a pretty long time, if you ask me...

Tamron needs to produce in certain qty to keep the price competitive, it's only normal for them to wait for the market to grow

Both A7R3 and A73 are simply superb, kudos to Sony!
