Boissez: The amount of bickering about the iPhones and their specs borders on the fanatic.

Apples rarely flaunts their specs around, and by the end of the day that's hardly what matters in a smartphone anyway. You can't spec your way to a good user experience.

And people also seem to forget that the supposedly lowly specced iPhone 6 actually outperformed any of the other flagships from 2014: http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles

its all about the OS for most people,iOS users are used to iPhones and like to use them.. vice versa for Droids!!

cmvsm: Sony and Panasonic seems to be the only ones innovating these days. My next purchase will most likely be with them. Maybe Nikon will have another boring release of the D3400 or D7300 where the highlight is a slight movement of the controls. Canon and Nikon are becoming the Blackberry of the camera world.

But Canon & Nikon do have excellent Glass to offer.

Nice camera but sony really need to sort out the RAW file,the user should be able to make his own choice!!

Thorgrem: Isn't 2100 euro a little bit to much if you can get a excellent Sigma for 750 euro? Yes, sure this lens will also be excellent but is the difference worth 1350 euro?

Street price will be much lower after a few months!

Prognathous: Nice money-is-no-object camera. Less appealing if money is of *any* importance (compared to a camera like the Pentax 645z for example, which for all intent is just as capable).

@Prognathous "Most of the Pentax lenses were disappointing, not even in the same league as Leica S glass, and lacking the sparkle I enjoy from my Zeiss glass."

@Prognathous ,Both Ming Thein and Lloyd Chambers have siad the S glass is superior,the S also has leaf shutters and the Z has none that I know off,I also know someone that owns a Pentax Z and he agrees the S glass is better,Lloyd has demonstrated that teh D810 with Otus glass can outresolve the 645Z with its pentax glass.

I do think the 645Z is a very good camera but if you are interested in using the sharpest glass then the S is the best system,I have all the lenses ,i built the collection up over the last few years,my shooting buddy uses a Phase one IQ280 and he is still impressed with leicas S glass and its look and color!!

BTW ,I also have a D810 and used a Hasselblad H4D 50 for 3yrs,the Blad was nice but I had to make a choice and I prefered S glass rendering!

Leica S glass is in a different class to Pentax glass!!

topstuff: If Sigma bring out a 24-70 2.8 ART lens with VR soon they will sweep up, if they price it aggressively and the quality is there. This Nikon looks great but super expensive. Maybe it will be discounted. But there is an opportunity for Sigma I would think..

You can pick up a Canon 24-70 mk2 for 60% of RRP in the UK,I think the Nikon will end up the same in a few months..

At this price I would prefer Billingham.

I've been using this since V4 and its really matured over time,Its worth a trial to se how it works with your choice of camera,I find the color and contrast to be very good and its a great tethering app!

TheCohbrah: I find this program to be rather confusing. Having to select so many menus as compared to lightroom just to do one task. Anyone come across this problem?

There are keyboard shortcuts which will move you through the menus very fast.. Alt⌥ + Cmd⌘ + 1,2,3… / Ctrl + 1,2,3…

Shunda77: Lol, my D5100 crop sensor has more DR than this new Canon.

But it doesn't have 50mp... just sayin ;-)

edrill4000: Just cancelled my Canon 5DSR order.

I'm not a fan of there Canon sensors but a good system is lens driven and Canon has a great lens selection!!

No top quality leather bag costs $59!!

bigdaddave: I could never be seen with a bag that is worth more than the gear inside it.

What an utter waste of money

It costs $399 and its well made,and considering its designed for a Leica M its impossible to be worth more than the gear inside!!

naththo: Significant amount of pixelation and aliasing in those samples. 35mm sensor are not meant to have much more than 20mp at least. Its way too much mp cramming into 35mm sensor is not good things. You need at least medium format to do 50mp or so which will show much clean image look. I compared to Phase One, Phase One came out much clean sample to compare with hardly much aliasing at all.

The Phase one sensor has a higher spatial resolution,which reduces moire and aliasing! Physics wins!

Frank Zen: I'll say this. My Sony Xperia's camera is INCREDIBLE! In fact probably the best image quality in all the phones I've had (iPhone, Galaxy, Nexus). I don't know if it's their sensor but the pics are AMAZING! I also own and Alpha that I love as well...

@ martinot

I don't think Canon use Sony sensors in any of their products.

Petka: Looks slightly softer than Nikon D810 to me, also bit less DR. So no quantum leap here, and none was really expected. The difference between 36 and 50 Mpix is actually quite small, only 18% in linear resolution.

Still, Canonists have now finally something they can show in public again…

Is there really any reason to use MF backs anymore? IQ180 does not look any better either (bit better DR only).

IQ180 file looks cleaner of moire,and skin tones are excellent for those who shoot portraits!
