mediman30: Wedding photographers, what are you waiting for?!

there are a few who have made the transition here in the philippines like my friend who has been doing wedding professionally for almost a decade. he recently switched from 1DX to A9. looks like there are so many features which makes the A9 tempting aside from just speed. although you'll have to rebuild your system of lenses and accessories. its definitely not an easy or cheap transition. DSLRs here have very low resale value as everybody's moving to mirrorless.

Bill Ferris: Wow, nearly 1200 comments. Say what you want, but Sony had clearly struck a nerve with this product. I wonder if they've improved they're labrynthian menu?

what's more impressive is that there are very few negative comments. looks like everybody's just speechless.

Quantum Scientist: Very nice camera but I wouldn't be so quick to jump on this. Nikon, Fuji, and Canon are set to strike back big by this fall. I got a little inside scoop on the Nikon mirrorless and it could be a killer. For now, my X-T1 is just fine.

it took sony 3 generations to perfect the A73. i doubt nikon can launch a similarly spectacular and feature-packed full frame mirrorless on their first try.

woah... 90% of the A9's features packed at an "entry-level" body? can anything even compete with this at this price point? is there no stopping sony??

josh bailey: Smart move by Nick. I know they will be able to learn from a crisis and see a new dawn for the company. I remember seeing how GoPro was started and it was because it was a unique affordable solution to a surfing camera that could mount on your surfboard. That is really what fuelled their initial success. Perhaps they will go back to what worked for them and develop something that isn't already being done to make a bang in the market again. I am excited to see what they come up with next with another company by their side.

mxx exactly

I really think that they are already dead. Lack of innovation and reiterating essentially the same product does not exactly work long term. Plus stubborness with their "premium pricing". There are too many much cheaper alternatives that can do the same thing (or sometimes do even better).

Alphaville: Incredibly negative comments.. This seems to be an amazing camera.

woah! might be the same sensor but everything else has been improved! altogether, this new a7r3 looks to be a massive upgrade! sony is out for blood! looking forward to the a7r3 vs D850 war

Woah! Computer-simulated bokeh tech is amazing! Can't wait for this tech mature! Large sensors cameras have yet lost another big advantage! Maybe soon we can also start doing long-exposures and zooms in smartphones.

p51d007: No matter what they do, it's still a PINHOLE sensor. Granted, they don't do too bad of a job for a pocket camera, but, until the industry starts making the SIZE of the sensor larger, along with a REAL glass 5-10X optical zoom lens, nothing is really going to change.

@chibachan agree. huge market demand will force smartphone tech to evolve very fast. doesn't sony supply majority of smartphone sensors?

massive processing power and far more advanced software algorithm are huge advantages of smartphones. it really closes the gap in terms of image quality. as for bokeh/dof, we're getting there soon thru computational simulated bokeh. as for zoom, smartphones now have dual cameras in them. its not the same as a real zoom lens but it works even though the range is very limited.

mckracken88: yeah fake pics, with low image quality, no thanks.
My d800 could be 3 times as heavy and i would still use it instead of a pocket phone.

The smartphone has already killed so many devices. Smartphone tech is evolving very fast whether we like it or not. It's already killed digicams. I won't be surprised if it kills DSLRs in the future. And I think it's already happening as software-simulated bokeh is the next big step. It may not be that impressive now but given enough time it will be. Everyone wants a convenient device that can do everything. I know I would.

In reply to:

Lee Jay: $1,700 for a fixed-lens camera. That's about three times what I'd pay, no matter how good it is.

Maybe I'll get a used one off ebay in a year or two.

@Lee Jay don't be stubborn. just try shooting ff and apsc with the same lens with exactly the same settings and then tell me if the image's brightness changes. its an easy test that anyone can do.

@Lee Jay have you taken a shot on both ff and apsc camera using the same lens? have you noticed that the focal length and dof will change but the brightness remains (more or less) the same?

Excellent! Very helpful! Thanks Jesus/DPR!

Stigg: It amazes me that many here would viciously attack virtually any "point & shoot" camera with a "small" (typically 1/2.3) sensor, yet with these camera/phone combinations, there are comparisons with APS-C cameras that would have drawn hellfire in the past.

@larrytusaz get ready to be frustrated. the latest smartphones can take fantastic shots for day to day use.

Peter G: I preferred the Canon colors in a lot of those shots. The Alexa seemed to have bit of greenish tinge.

To my untrained eyes, the Alexa has fantastic dreamy colors. I did not feel much for the Canon colors.

jessedacri: Good comparison, but there are so, so, so, so many better choices on the market than any of Canon's DSLRs, especially the APS-C ones. For video, they're bottom of the barrel and I'd hope someone looking to shoot on a $3000 budget does the research to end up with a much more capable camera for the money. All other competitors have vastly larger dynamic range, better features for the operator, better low light performance and more resolution/framerate options. Not to mention vastly more detailed 1080p if you're comparing side by side. The Sony A7s and A7sII, A6300 and 6500, Panasonic GH4 and GH5, even the A7RII are all vastly better choices for very similar money.

@John C Tharp is the A6500 bad in holding focus?

@larrytusaz nothing is more readily available and convenient than a smartphone. its also the same reason why smartphone tech is the fastest evolving tech. do you really need a big sensor to get 'serious' with photography? i would think that it is the shot that defines the photographer... not the tool.

@jessedacri exactly! They should have at least used the A7s2 / A6500 for a more competitive comparison especially when talking about video IQ.

But color science is a different story and Fuji might be better in this regard.
