Oh well, it wasn't really a Sony, it was a Minolta. And it shows.
I tried my luck with the A7 for one solid year... it never felt right and eventually I got rid of it. But you'll have to pry my A850 from my cold, dead fingers. From an usability standpoint, it was just perfect... there seems to be so much know-how that got lost with Sony since then, I sometimes wonder what they did to all the Minolta folks...

Honestly, what's the problem with you people?
Get out and take some pictures, with whatever camera you like.

Photoman: Does anyone use this camera???

Not yet. But you know, it's really stuck-up questions like this that make me want to go and buy one.

photogeek: Fuji would have a real winner on its hands if X-T2 had effective IBIS. As it is today, I'll have to wait for X-T3.

Thank you for this very useful piece of information.

In reply to:

fad: Still gathering dust for me, after all these years.

Sadly, useless for street photography.

I just bought MG Voigtlander 40/1.8 MF lens for D750 to fill this same niche.

Strange. I had a terrific time with my X100. Anyway, I'm very sorry you find it useless. If you want, you can send it over to me. I'm sure I will put it to good use. If you prefer, I'll pay shipping fees.

PanchoVilla: The XPro2 is looking to be seriously outgunned by the newly announced A6500. Time to sell off my Fuji gear!

Now that the A6500 is announced, all your Fuji gear (and, by extension, everybody else's) is completely and utterly obsolete. Trust me, it won't even take photos any more.
I doubt you'll get any money for it. But if you want to, you can have it shipped to me, I'll gladly take care of proper and professional disposal.

Pikme: How many pictures of a dog's face to we need to see?

Seriously, these are about the most uninspired photos for a new 'perfect' lens that I can imagine. I get it, a few photos to show the DOF and look for flare makes sense, but all these images might as well be concrete walls. Where are the images to show off the lens' rendering appeal?

It's not like you're lacking in photographers....

Not that I really expect an userful answer here... but sometimes I *really* wonder, where does all that hate, viciousness and contemptuousness come from? What is the matter with you people?

Terry Breedlove: Fuji's first Pro level digital camera is without the failed Xtrans sensor. awesome now we can use the industry standard raw processing software without penalty and no mushy green scenics. Good job Fuji

Do you want to talk about it?

damian5000: This might be the silliest article I've ever read on dpreview. [The M5 is a disappointment because it's amazing, but it should have been here 2 years ago] and... [it's a disappointment, but I'd take it over the Sony]... Man, get real.

um, did you actually read the article?

In reply to:

LensBeginner: Lacks pentax lens support.
That would have meant many good manual lenses for small, very portable cameras. An adapter for K mount for, say, Nex Alphas is in many cases as long as the lens, and you still have the 1.5 crop factor.

pentax k to canon ef adapter--> no problem. these work without additional glass (as do m42 to canon ef adapters)

"However, it doesn’t take long to notice there’s a certain aesthetic that seems especially prominent. Browse the popular page, and you’ll see certain styles seem to doing markedly better: scantily clad women; macro shot; heavily post-processed landscape and architecture; and wildlife photography."

Hear, hear. But isn't above sentence true for virtually every single image sharing site on the www?
