I know it means nothing to you, you never owned one, never will, you're awesome!vJust think of whatever device you own. It was either influenced, or stimulated by the iPhone. Apple made every phone maker out there to try just a little harder. Not a fanboy, buy Apple deserves credit for this.

kingslayer: 5 years and such marginal improvements? Time to go Fuji

just one of those things --- bring all the proof you want, people still believe what they want to believe...

On article Now we know: Sony a9 is sharper than we thought (394 comments in total)

I keep looking at the 55 vs 85mm lens samples and I barely see anything different. If there is a difference, I simply don't see how that would affect anyone's photography. And I mean "photography"!

Roland Karlsson: That was not a clean cut. It was uneven and ugly. And was the guy funny? Not!

Sorry - just had to let it out.

It was off centered so the elements won't fall off.
Ugly yes, funny, more or less...

arhmatic: Imagine if all the pens sold had a camera... that would outnumber camera phones 10:1, just like smartphone outnumber actual cameras 10x:1

Imagine a world where a camera is a camera and a photographer is a photographer.

To be fair, many cars come with cameras. For rear view, for whatever sensors, etc... In a few years, this would be standard.

Let's throw those into the mix, just because...

I won't believe anyone telling me that a full frame mirrorless camera cannot fit in a Nikon F2 sized body! --- whatever styling they decide to go with.

Nikon, do it!

In reply to:

arhmatic: Apple --- Just put a larger sensor, a decent lens (yes, this thin device craziness has to stop!) a decent battery, and I'll buy it.

All the stuff you are coming up with, like fake bokeh, infrared and now 3D - makes no sense whatsoever. In fact, this is the number one reason I am not interested. It makes no sense to pay hundreds more for some gimmicks that I'd never use. Keep it simple and classy.

Of course then know what they are doing. Because they are doing it, not me.

But do they know what users really want? Past iphone releases proved the opposite.

marc petzold: I don't care about absolute sharpness at all, i do care more about "look", haptics & usability, also IQ about a lens. That's why i do love my old MF lenses, too. This is my lens i'd get this year. Suits the X-E1 perfectly as walk-around Lens, very versatile focal length. On other reviews, this XF 23 F2 WR had shown that it is capable of delivering "3D Pop" just like some old Zeiss Glass. A bit corner Softness at F2 wide open is expected, and ordinary. I do like this Lens very much.

Look and Haptics!
I never understood why sharpness is so important. Yes, it matters, but not a deal breaker. Haptics, on the other hand, do matter to me. I realize I am in minority, but we all have our own reasons. I still can't get over the conical shape. Not getting this... 18mm is my walk around, with the old 35mm second.

If this the top of the line canon Mirrorless? Not critiquing the camera itself, I just want to learn that the current flagship is, so I can compare it with my Pro-2.
