dpfan32: Thank you Flickr and Yahoo for all the years of free almost unlimited upload and quite affordable Pro (22 USD as I remember right).
Now this Crapmug BS turns all into money. I had a 22 USD premium account and I doubt that this would not be enough even for Crapmug.
It's the same story everywhere: nice free or affordable services pop up and get annexed by cutthroat business who suck all of your money and/or private data.

How do you think it was free/cheap under Yahoo's ownership?

Full Stop: The guys from optyczne.pl did shoot some pics with the 56mm at Photokina.
It can outresolve the sensor of a Sony 6500 at 1.4 as you can see in the moiré of the fabric here

I also made some pictures with it at Photokina with my OMD10 and it looks really good even at f/1.4.

Woah, there are some weird artifacts in this one.

Toselli: Is it confirmed the rumor that fuji switched from sony to samsung as manufacturer for the sensor? I hope we get an option as good if not better than sony!

Sony wouldn't have used an X-Trans themselves, nor is any other company interested in the tech.

Keep in mind that there have been three generations of the 24mp sensor. The NEX-7's, the a6000's, and the one used in the a6300 and a6500. I'm hoping the next APS-C sensor will be a BSI design.

Ziginox: 127mm? That's an odd focal length.

I'm not saying it's a bad focal length or that we have to adhere to a certain set for primes, it's just strange that they chose 85mm pre-equivalence. Marketing or something?

AndroC: Re the closed source Z mount. Here is an interview with an executive pretty high up the food chain:

https://nikonrumors.com/2018/08/26/nikon-executive-on-whether-nikon-will-release-a-pro-model-like-the-d5-in-the-z-line-count-on-it.aspx/

It is stated: "He anticipates that the third party will reverse-engineer the Z lens."

If that's the case, why doesn't Nikon just open the design? Are they just trying to slow down the third parties? I don't understand.

The E-mount is NOT open-source. The specification is available from Sony, but only through approval and (I would imagine) an NDA. It's still more than Nikon and Canon do, though.

bolt2014: Has any camera in the last 10 years caused as many comments or brought out as many "Boo Birds"as the new Nikon mirrorless?

6D Mark II, perhaps?

In reply to:

HP McGargo: "...a little shortsightedness?" Common now DPreview, you expect Nikon to share the new lens mount technologies with third parties? Who in their right mind would give away the largest income producer for an ILC manufacturer?? In due time perhaps but to give away that source of revenue before the first camera is sold is insane. Also take issue with Dpreviw's lecturing Nikon on what they should do. As though this place has become the paragon of corporate strategy, no, you're not.

Sigma, Tamron, etc will reverse-engineer the lens mount and electronics protocol (which is probably largely the same as F-mount) anyway and will release lenses for it. Nikon will of course tout reliability with first-party lenses, but that won't stop people from buying third party lenses and blaming Nikon for glitches that could have been avoided had Nikon cooperated like Sony does. Hell, it's even possible to update Sigma's lenses through a Sony body.

Vladi Stoimenov: The answer to the Nikon conundrum was finally found:
The MIRROR image of "Z" is equal to "S"[ony] ! Simply genius!

Not to mention, Z is on the opposite end of the alphabet from A.

Seems a bit expensive compared to the LA-EA3 ($200, same features) or LA-EA4 ($300, contains an entire AF sensor system and motor drive)...

pentaust: One more guy who gets paid or gets free gear for promoting Sony. People have been shooting stunning wildlife photographs for a very long time, even way before Sony made any camera.

Have you forgotten about Minolta?

Wait, this is a prime lens? I seriously thought it was a zoom going by the softness...

I love the green ring, but am I the only one finding FUJINON TELEPHOTO PRIME and the green swoop a little bit gaudy?

Marksphoto: waiting for 85 1.4 - that would be my last lens I buy.

I was wondering the same, wouldn't a 55-56mm make more sense?

SHood: Sony phones have some of the worse JPEG output and don't support RAW. I doubt they will improve their JPEGs, so unless RAW is supported we won't see the benefits.

Even getting the full resolution out of my Z5 with a third-party app is difficult.

adengappasami: If only the fones were good, sony phones would sell good numbers. Somehow they make great camera phones and sloppy phones in general.

Just get a stock android, plonk this camera and let user enjoy stock android.

Launcher aside, Sony is still one of the closest to stock, third only to Motorola and Nexus/Pixel phones.

I wonder if that 4GB video limit goes away if you use an exFAT-formatted card, as it does on Sony cams.
