Quantum Scientist: Very sorry for her, however, why would any clear-headed human being be at such an event photographing such sub-human scum? Not to mention, the music is beyond horrible. I'd rather listen to a monkey farting in a barrel.

I lived in Queens during the stone age.

gear !!!

Just the idea that a camera is boring shows where a person's interests are. It's what you do with the camera that's interesting (or not.)

At the beginning of the year, I thought, if Nikon made enough mistakes, Sony might take their position in high end cameras. And if the D850 had been a dud, it might have happened. Instead, there is something for everybody. For those of us who don't buy a new $3000 camera every year, Photokina should sort things out. Cameras were awfully good before this latest batch so something has to give. I don't see more megapixels or higher DxO scores as being very compelling.

HaroldC3: Product of the year should be like best in show for dog shows, made up of winners from each category and then choose winner from those.

I have no idea what this means but I strongly agree.

In reply to:

Rosember: It's a Sony year. Other manufacturers should contemplate this and combine their strengths with some of Sony's ideas.

Yes, but they're companies, not sports teams so these awards aren't that big a deal.

The sensor is compact.

So much value for so little money.

A pocket camera that actually fits in your pocket, with a low DxO score. Sounds great to me. Some of the early Elph cameras were quite stylish too.

Gesture: G1 X Mark III Edition X Vault IIX

They should partner with Tamron and put a DC VI I USD ED mk II lens on it.

Sezano is right. These are the first pictures of buildings I've ever seen!

On article Nikon D850 vs Sony a7R III: Which is best? (1037 comments in total)

Haven't read this yet but I assume it's like asking which one gets the gold award. How about: Nikon ergonomics, Sony size and Canon customer service?

Greg VdB: All fine with me, as long as Roger Cicala keeps having enough time to produce his fabulous test reports.

I have learned so much from Roger. Ironically, he's not in the lens rating business, yet the information he provides is much more useful & practical than the "Dick Clark's Rate-A-Record" sites. Since he rents pretty much everything, he is by definition, unbiased. And he writes beautifully, too.

Looks like having beautiful subject matter might just be more important than your camera's DxO score.

Mared: The Sony Alpha bodies are a combined 43%. Not too bad a year for Sony. Where's Canon???

It's true. You can buy a 5D4 today; they're not even backordered. It seems people just buy each new 5D so Canon just keeps on making them.

You can see the world's wealth moving, with Leica opening stores in China. A certain irony that while some of us worry about Chinese quality, wealthy Chinese are buying German (the cars too, of course.)

Anyone who is not obsessed with equipment could hardly go wrong with any of these. For the general user, not the hair-splitting /DxO number counting user, it's getting down to ergonomics, price and is it good for video.

ZeBebito: How many more buying guides do we need?

DPR is free. Pickup an old copy of Popular Photography. 1/3 of the magazine is ads, 1/3 is articles that (spoiler alert) end up recommending you buy something, and the other 1/3 has to do with photography. And we paid money each month to be told what to buy!

In reply to:

tkbslc: I'm continually shocked that Canon M series keeps making DPR's best of lists. They have the worst specs list, lens selection and sensors of any current mirrorless product.

If you base decisions on DxO, sure, lots of perfectly good cameras have lower scores.
