villagranvicent: My A7 is ugly enough to be seen even in my camera bag. Why would I want to have this Sony promotional material??

Perhaps you need to glorify your A7 with some good old-fashioned Hasselblad bling? Only + $10,000.

shigzeo: Why?

Because this sort of thing might be popular in Asian markets.

I thought the idea was to leave your bigger A7 at home, and take your iPhone or Android? Well, call it, "you can have your NEX and your NEXUS, too!"

Now I wonder what you could do with that dummy lens mounted on a real A7?

Steve in GA: So, are the comments below representative of what we can expect whenever a DPR subject even lightly touches on politics?

If so, perhaps DPR should remember that Internet anonymity allows and encourages extreme vitriol in comments. Maybe it would be better for DPR to confine its articles to photography, and leave politics for CNN and FOX.

ppage: I do speak out, in appropriate places. I'm not convinced that this is an adequate place to do so, however. my passwqord was hacked several times, just for example. Meaning there are lurkers, malcontents, snitches and God knows what other kinds of trolls.

If you live in the US....it's very naive that you consider that to be a democracy. More like an oligarchy.

Canon will surely rush forward a new 'Inauguration' edition, just to be there!

I think it is inappropriate for DPR to allow such political arguments on what is supposed to be a journal about photography.
It may also be dangerous for some of the posters. The NSA which has been collecting data on EVERYBODY for years, has just been ordered to turn over ALL their files for scrutiny by the CIA.
They make lists...it's like NAZI Germany all over again.

HP1999: President Dumpf supporter of evil is not my president. Look at everything O.H. said and did

The speech by actress Meryl Streep was on point.
The last republican president got us in a war with no WMDs to be found. Was part of a massive recession.

Dumpf will isolate and take the US into WW III with his idiotic tweets and lack of diplomacy
Trump will do nothing unless it puts more money in his pockets. Dumpf supporters were blinded by lies so he could win the biggest reality show ever
We have a president with the behavior of a toddler who is spoiled and when they don't get there way it was rigged.
Still Dumpf won't show his tax returns for someone who likes to brag and boast all of a sudden he is shy to be a billionaire (supposedly)

3 million Americans did not want Dumpf and while he won the electoral vote he lost in his home state of New York. His home town did not want this leech
Dark days ahead for all

As the man said, enough politicking on DPR.

Heritage Cameras: Ah, yes we still have a (red!) GH1, and use it for lens compatibility checking and testing, such as this IX-Nikkor:

http://www.heritagecameras.co.uk/ekmps/shops/heritagecameras/images/nikon-24-70mm-zoom-lens-for-pronea-aps-includes-micro-four-thirds-adapter-manual--[5]-2869-p.jpg

The feature I really miss from this camera is the multi-aspect sensor – it's a shame this wasn't continued after the GH2.

My G1 is blue too, with the original 14-45. And I have another; no telling what the oroginal color was, the covering is all peeled off. (Talk about a disposable camera.) They both work fine and are a pleasure to use.

Anyone interested in trading a GH1 for my 2 G1's?

twomoocows: What's the difference between the A6500 Silver Award with 85% and the Olympus OM-D Gold Award with 85%? Just curious.

The Olympus is prettier?

Alexis D: This is about the only clue I can find about what can be expected in still photo IQ and it seems to say that any improvement in IQ will be from the use of a faster processor to enhance photo quality:

"Still image processing

Panasonic is keen to stress the GH5 is intended for stills as well as video. The greater processing power of the GH5 allows the camera to consider a wider area of the image when calculating the color values from each pixel. Panasonic says this makes it possible to extract greater JPEG resolution from the captured image.

The GH5's greater processing power also allows more sophisticated sharpening, promising reduced over-shoot that can cause unnatural-looking 'halos' on high-contrast edges.

Updated noise reduction is also supposed to be better at distinguishing between noise and detail, meaning that detail is better preserved during the noise reduction process."

I had wished that there would be something about a new type of sensor.

Or Fuji XT2.

dkov70: Is there no mistake in the specs?
Weight (inc. batteries) 725 g (1.60 lb / 25.57 oz) vs. 560 g (1.23 lb / 19.75 oz) by GH4 ???
GH5 Battery Life (CIPA) 410 vs. 500 by GH4???
Well, i guess better wait for GX9 or look more closely at SONY A99 m2 or A7r m2 :-(

It's the same battery.

OlyPent: A lot less moaning and groaning here about price than when Olympus announced their $2000 camera body. Is it possible Panasonic users are a different group?

As they said, the GH4 will still be available. I wonder if they will drop the price of the GH4?

Johnish: Shooting 4K video is my main interest. The a6500 LCD and EVF dimming when shooting 4K render this camera useless outdoors in bright light. This is not a Sony oversight, an error in design, but a deliberate business decision not to invest in R&D, I have no doubt. I have a work-around and it is to purchase a Lumix G85 (Gold Award) plus I get the benefit of no overheating problems plus many other more advanced features, plus I save significant money.

For me the Sony a6500 is a disappointment which reflects Sony's long term strategic non-commitment to this market segment. I must add my Sony a6000 still does a great job doing what it was designed to do.

Mike, here's his G85 vs XT-2 comparison video. Interesting.

I think the A6500, XT-2 and G85 are a draw, depending on the needs of the buyer. The G85 has a big price advantage. All bets are off with the arrival of the GH-5, expected in about 2 weeks.

Dr_Jon: It will be interesting to see how they compare with the Sigma 20mm f1.4

Or the Samyang 20mm F1.8 ED AS UMC which has been available since last April. Or are they the same lens?

BobT3218: Brides Magazine? Ha ha ha! Wedding photography is the one photo genre where IQ is of least concern to customers. It's all about composition and that is in the eye of the photographer not the camera.

Someone should do a piece on how to pick a wedding photography magazine.

nikoklakor: Terrific camera . Wish I could afford it ;)

Time marches on. What was gold once before, is no longer so. And all that glitters is not gold.

Pets of New York: The A77 II has a higher resolution LCD, a top facing LCD, twice the flash coverage, better continuous burst, faster shutter speed, a flash sync port, and much longer battery life. Beyond all this, somehow the A77 II costs $200 less, not $200 more.

I don't own either but what is the attraction of the A6500 over the A77 II? It seems like mirrorless is all the hype these days but SLT is what is far more interesting to me for actual photography instruments from Sony.

it's unproven, but I believe that my NEX-7 has the nicest JPEG colors, compared to the A6000, A6300 and A6500. The NEX-7 had an older 24 mp sensor borrowed from the A-77.

Manfred Bachmann: The Sony a6500 have to be in this list, because its maybe the best sony camera yet and we have 2016! What will you tell us in 2017, no 6500 because it was an 2016 camera?

Yes, and if it had made this list?
Then surely the A6500 would be tied with the XTII for second place. Which would have made things even more interesting.

What about the A3000?
