Easiest thing for Canon and Nikon to do is come out with their mirrorless cameras using E-mount, their lenses already work with it.

Why are you hating so much on people who like Apple? All you need is to get into the Apple system and experience it. When you do, there is no competition or they just disappear in the background.

Keeponkeepingon, But can you even see what you are focusing on in the dark with OVF? How can you even frame the picture properly when you can't see sh**t?

Fotoni: A7 III is one of the best two grand camera. It is good in everything, but not the best in anything.

MyReality, why is D750 AF better? Can you expound on that?

Pete_W: As expected, there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth from Canon and Nikon owners now that DPR is recommending FF mirrorless. The future of DSLR looks grim.

Remember the time when the general consensus was a digital sensor will never match the detail or sensitivity of film?

So basically OVF 'purists' are saying they are not buying any EVF camera. The writing is already on the wall, EVF is the future. EVF is an accurate view of what your picture is going to look like, not OVF. OVF cannot show you whether or not the camera is exposing for the shadow or highlight in high contrast, backlit scenes. You can see in the dark with EVF, not OVF.

chrisno: not surprised it will overtake the entire market, they are 10x bigger company than Sony anyway

Samsung Techwin was the weapons developer arm and it was sold in 2015.

Samsung as a company makes more products. Samsung refrigerators, washer/dryers, AC units, etc..

J A C S: Does anybody remember the time when Sony's TV were the best?

Currently, Sony TVs are still one of the best. I've always preferred the Sony picture and color compared to Samsung, which, to me, looks artificially processed. But for price/performance, I prefer LG over both.

Great Bustard: Who would buy this when you could get a 6D2 for $100 less? : )

Who would buy a 6D2 when you can have the A7III with so much more cutting-edge features for only $100 more?

I would love to see the 105 1.4 attached to an APS-C camera like the Sony A6500.

A more useful innovation would be a system that can steer your hands in the right directions so you can get a better composition/picture. How long does it take for this flash to do its thing before you can take a picture?

Geez, you guys didn't get my point and jump in and compare to Apple. Just compare Android phones to Android phones. In a sea of high-end Android phones, why pay a premium for a Samsung phone when you can get one with similar features for a lot less?

Not a single mention about price.

RandyPD: To those saying that this lens 'negates' the weight advantages of mirrorless, a Nikon D5 is like half a kilo (500g) heavier than a Sony A9 with grip. That's like a pound.

Canon was actually out the door first in terms of making their DSLRs video machines, and pros used this dual functionality for years.In terms of having a viable mirrorless system, I think Canon is ahead of Nikon because, besides already having mirrorless models, their dual Pixel live view performance is pretty impressive. The major differences between DSLR and mirrorless are, obviously, the mirror and flange distance. The strength of the Nikon AF system has always been that it is a separate system, with a finely tuned separate AF module working together with a RGB color meter. Nikon did have some experience with having a good mirrorless AF system with the 1 series but whether it translates to good performance with bigger imaging sensors remain to be seen.

RandyPD: The dual rubber rings might indicate a 100 or 135 2.8 portrait lens with defocus control (similar to Nikon DC or Sony STF lenses).

Their purpose is the same, bokeh control.
