On article Sony a9 shooting experience: Here's why I'm impressed (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

NicoPPC: Thanks for your opinion.

How good is the VF?

I am not sure the weight saving is a good argument compared to modern DSLR like D500, 5D4, 7d2.. in the end, the lenses will be heavy to get a good quality.

Regards

there is no weight saving with mirrorless.
3/4th of weightsaving is based on sensor size reduction, not change of flange length or subtraction of a mirror box...
in fact, with the Sony G-Master lenses, you even get a heavier package.

probert500: I could see this being useful for video use, cameras in remote locations, and time lapse. Otherwise I just plunk in a fresh battery - they're about $19.00 for pair, they're small, and I carry a few. Using arca plates makes this a non issue.

no way I let this camera sit alone in a remote location!

D200_4me: On every m4/3 camera I've owned (G2, GH2, E-M5, E-M1, G85), even with a high quality lens and base ISO, it seems there's always some sort of mild grain visible when you view the image at 100%. Why is that? By comparison, if I use a middle of the road lens like the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 on my FF Nikon DSLR, the image is crystal clear (no dimpling or grainy look at all) at base ISO. I'm not talking about sky photos, but images of various objects with no sky/atmosphere involved. I'm genuinely curious about that and not complaining. Just want to know what the reason is for that very mild grain. I would have expected some differences at higher ISOs, but I assumed at base ISO (200 for example), the image should be totally clear even on a small sensor. This is not something you'd notice at normal viewing...just when you zoom to 100%.

should DxO have cracked the holy grail in photography and provide noise reduction without any costs? (except for the license fee, of course...)

my way as well.
I'm even considering a ricoh GR with adapter to get 21mm FOV.
For the money of a fuji 16/1.4 or olympus 12/2 you get with the Ricoh GR + GW3 two focal lengths plus a camera :D

In reply to:

jim seekers: I know that this is a FF camera, but does it have less noise than the RX100V which only has a 1" Sensor, many years appart with advanses in sensor technology, just wondering how both compair with noise at various ISO settings.

come again? Better than any FF or half frame tested?
Do you really trust DXO Marks high ISO scores?
Or does this result make you at least a bit sceptical?

tailings: Nice camera, pity the badge. I've been burned by Sony too many times in the past, (audio and computers), to ever consider their cameras, no matter how amazingly spec'd. Admire the camera, buy if you can't resist but beware the Sony burn.

there are huge differences between the different divisions / companies under the sony badge...

$3000 is a lot of cash.
Don't get me wrong, I would pay that amount and be happy with the combo.
But man, a $1000 X100T was already a lot strain on my pockets... photography surely is expensive.

In reply to:

Internet Enzyme: Seems slow. F/2.8 to F/4 is a F/5.6 to F/8 full frame equivalent. I do understand that that probably doesnt matter much since this is meant as a wide landscape lens, where long exposures negate the issue and slow apertures are necessary to get everything in focus. But if you plan on using this lens in any other capacity, you will be very disappointed in just how much noise that the lens will produce.

Oh my, what a painful discussion.
So many things that can be deciphered by doing proper research.

But the "lens generates noise" is my favorite. I get what you mean, but it still is funny.

Founder: Been waiting for this lens... but I'm disappointed that there's no OIS... it makes a big difference with Dual IS.

Agreed. The IBIS is enough in that focal length department

uh, if those are too grainy for you, I should show you some of my Nikon 1 V1 images at base ISO... let's say: organic :)
but honestly, grain is not a problem IMHO.
I am one of those who even add artificial grain in post up to the point where detail loss is just about to start. Clean and flat surfaces are often something I do not want in my images...

ovatab: ( $3 sensor + $1 lens ) x 16 = $64 worth of imaging hardware backed by a smartphone processor will need a miraculous software to draw/generate/compute decent pictures ;)

You wish it would be that simple.
This is, I believe, the future

JL Auch: Looks interesting.

I wonder what the responsiveness will be when actually taking a picture... Will all the electronic shutters fire simultaneously?

Most the images are fairly static, I wonder how the image processor will cope with objects moving in the frame, especially combining the images in the processor.

Rolling shutter can be eliminated with multiple sensors. You just change the read out direction of the sensors and voila

In reply to:

Steve in GA: After reading this comparison of the D7500 and D500, I think my best move is to very quickly buy a D7200 before B&H runs out of stock.

or a D810A?

In reply to:

Greg VdB: Or when the law of diminishing returns teams up with the laws of physics... (moving all that glass around)

Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic effort by Fuji and I'd love to use one, but perhaps in digital photography the "sweet spot" for high image quality + usability is FF rather than MF? (The difference in image quality in the film days was much larger, and that's before considering digital techniques like sensor shift.)

I would agree on the sweet spot - it is APSC in my opinion.
A XPro2 weights almost nothing! and produces images that are only marginally bihind FF camera IQ.
In those direct comparisons, image composition, good lightening and a sensible post-processing are fare more important for a good picture than the half/full sensor debate wants to make you believe.

In reply to:

Neuropsychology: I would really would have liked to see the portrait comparison using the Sony A7RII too!

why? to be assured that your buying decision was not wrong?
I can tell you, your A7RII is an amazing camera.
You will not miss much on the GFX.
Relax.
