In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: 13 is not a lucky number. I pre-ordered the 14. Meantime, show us a DPReview Video using 13. Amuse us. Surprise us.

Or is unlucky 4 Japanese culture?

Ayoh: These teasers are very lame, just release the camera already or shut up. Seems they are worried they may not be retaining customers

Are you serious TRU? If I had a dollar for every time I've seen your overly critical comments on these camera sections I could afford an R3..

On article Sony announces new ultra-fast FE 50mm F1.2 GM lens (547 comments in total)
In reply to:

EXkurogane: Yes the Sony's 50 1.2 is the smallest and lightest but *cough heavy Focus Breathing cough*. Canon's rf 50 1.8 had the same exact issue, and it's small and light. There is always compromise to the optics design when u try to keep something small.

It's for the very same reason why Panasonic's 50mm 1.4 is over 900g, or how cine lenses in general tend to be bigger. These bigger and heavier lenses (including nikon z lenses) are also designed with some other things factored in including video usage. But I think the average commenter on dpreview do not have enough iq to understand.

I was wondering who would possibly need to focus stack with this particular lens..lol..

Michiel953: That rubber focusing ring looks skewed; hope that's not a sign of what QA there is on this lens...

I don't see it skewed at all. Not sure how you can even make that judgement on a couple of pictures. Just trolling maybe?

Would be great if it could stream video too.

In reply to:

Artak Hambarian: An L bracket or Arca Swiss competible rig with a handle would not harm. In fact if Sony makes a bit larger model, with good grip, providing more space for a larger battery and a hot shoe, number of fans would only increase...

I think what you're after is a RX10

BattleBrat: When I start shooting shots to print billboards I’ll be sure to pick one up. Till then my 6D already prints poster sizes I don’t use. But I can see the usefulness for some with this camera, but that “some” won’t be very many.

Most billboards I deal with are digital now. You end up supplying low resolution jpegs. I still really want this camera though..

I'm patiently awaiting the full review..

jimhughes: This interview helped me make up my mind: Sony APS-C is a dead end and I'm moving on.

I find these kind of comments hilarious. Sony pumps out decent cameras regularly and it's either they push them out too fast or the are dead in the water. They literally can never win with some of you guys. They even just brought out the 6400 which is a cracking camera..

hikerdoc: You would think everyone could be happy now. Sony gets bragging rights for being there first for the new tech gear guys and now Nikon arrives with a well built option for the actual photographers.

@thoughts you're living in a fantasy land.. There's nothing flimsy about the A9. I've used it as a work camera since it came out shooting stills and video in humid tropical Australia to -0 temps in Alaska. Very tough camera.

dpjoe1: Why doesn’t the EOS R’s 50mm 1.2 have IS?

With a fast lens - like this one used wide open, you are more likely to use a faster shutter speed for correct exposure, eliminating camera shake. For low light use wide open keep the shutter speed over 125 and raise iso if needed. Still be nice to have ibis though..

In reply to:

(unknown member): I'd rather like to see a 500mm/2.8 instead of this 500mm/5.6.

I love the Amazon reviews on that Sigma haha

In reply to:

williams359: A nice camera but as a wedding photographer who shoots a 1DX and 5DMKIV it does not make me think about getting one. I would be more tempted by the Sony A7III. Sorry canon.

Nearly double the battery life. Made a big difference to me.

KonstantinosK: Shame they ditched the apps. Some are very nice. With my IV I use the time lapse, smooth reflection quite often. Remote control and sync with smartphone are useful too.

Only in the newer body as far as I know.

And you can still do timelapse with S&Q

On article Sony a7 III Review (2179 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: I just want to address the menu issue people are complaining about. First it's only accessing the default menus that get confusing. That's why you should spend a good 30 minutes to an hour customizing them.

The Sony menus can basicially be adjusted into 4 tiers -

First - The direct 'Custom Function' buttons can be customized to your liking.
Second - The 'Function Button' menu can also allow custom access in a a display.
Third - The 'My Menu' can also be customized to place functions into one section.
Fourth - The mode dial has a 1 & 2 selection for instant changes (ex. 1 is for stills 2 is for video).

So you basically have several layers of customization that are available to you. Once you have that calibrated, you have no reason to menu dive ever again once those custom functions have been set!

I really don't get why people are complaining about the menus. Every camera menu is strange to start off but if you have even slight intelligence you'll work them out. They are not even hard on the A7.. very odd complaint.

In reply to:

KingTing: I honestly don't have any major complain at all.

Any complaints would really just be nitpicks like no time lapse built in feature.
Its everything I was expecting or better.

Fast AF, incredible speed and accuracy. IBIS helps all my MF lens. Battery lasts way longer. Duel card makes reviewing and and sharing the JPEG a lot faster.

Also if anyone bring up the menu mess, you can make your own.
You only ever gonna set up the camera from scratch once. All you would need from then on, is simple custom buttons and your own menu. (You can even choose what to put in at which slot at which page of your menu)

The only thing I need to get used to is the weight. Its heavier than a7s by quite a bit.

If the A7 has S&Q it can do timelapse (like the A9)

In reply to:

Kitschi: At this price Sony can keep it

I rather buy a Canon or Sigma 24-105 and a MC-11

Not arguing, it's the truth. I use the A9 with canon L glass & mc11 plus an older metabones adapter and it doesn't track in video mode. I can track with face detect using my zeiss primes. It's a lot easier than manually focusing especially when using with a ronin m gimbal. I don't shoot movies but do a lot of content and it makes life a lot easier : ) Stills are great with the latest update however. I can track with eye focus using canon glass.

I find video focus works a lot better with native glass. Depends if you do much video.
