Alexsfo: So Sony is the king of superzoom (RX10VI), the king of compact (RX100V), the king of mirrorless (A7iii), the king of consumer video, the king of sensor technology. They made great R&D investments and I think it will soon payoff in marketshare.

I thought Sony is the leader in image sensor markeshare? Are they not?

Alexsfo: this camera will bring Sony to #1 spot in FF camera unit sales in the US by the end of this year. Very impressive specs and seems like a great second body for Canon users. I still consider 5div best overall hybrid camera but Sony is closing the gap and lower cost lenses seem to be coming. If the new Tamron is optically great, Sony will start competing with Canon on lenses.

the #1 assertion was made only in regards to full frame camera units sold in the US, not overall marketshare which Canon will easily dominate for years to come. Canon made huge mistake by not including modern sensor into 6dii body which earned it universally poor to average reviews that may hurt its sales even if Canon lowers its price quite a bit (which it’s already started doing).

Nikon can’t even do live view well, forget about competitive mirrorless anytime soon. I can’t even think of anyone using Nikons for any half serious videography. Their lenses can’t do smooth AF racking. Canon will likely release a FF mirrorless by the end of the year but it will be too late to stop the inertia of A7iii that will dominate FF camera sales in the US throughout 2018 earning Sony a #1 spot in FF unit camera sales for the year of 2018. We can only hope this will serve as a wakeup call to Canon. Can’t wait!! We are entering golden age of photogtaphy when is finally seamleasly merging with high resolution videography. By generation IV, Sony will improve menu system, connectivity, touchscreen, etc. along with massive lens cataloge including vast third party support and will continue introducing more basic lower cost models to fulfill their long term goal to be #1 photography and videography brand.

fantastic, one of the best youtubers. This however felt more like a Sony commercial or a7iii is the truly the most perfect camera for the price.

On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1233 comments in total)

if someone is just starting out, it’s hard not to recommend Sony A7iii. You get a lot for the money, more than any other manufacturer currently offers. However, to benefit from AF speed gains especially in low light and video, one must use native lenses which tend to be more expensive with Sony and no bargains available such as Canon 40mm pancake and 50STM,

On article Canon EOS M50 Review (1312 comments in total)

With 4k not being useful at all on this M50 model, I fail to see why I should choose this over a much cheaper SL2 with its vastly better battery life, lowlight AF (OVF), and far larger native lens selection at lower prices.

I think this camera will take #1 spot for sales among FF cameras in the US and by the end of 2018 Sony will take #1 spot from Canon by unit FF camera sales. We are entering the golden age of digital photography, the best years are ahead of us.

4k mode on this camera is useless with 1.6 crop and no dpaf, just a gimick. It’s one thing to have a crop 4k in FF (5div) but it’s just cruel to have 1.6 crop on a 1.6 crop camera. This means no one will he able to get true 4k resolution as no ef-m lens will have enough resolution on such tiny crop (check dxomark). You are much better off with 1080/60p than 1440/24p (likely true resolution of this ‘4’).

AF in video is much more important than for stills. Unless you are doing some hollywood production, there is no reason not to have a reliable video AF in 2017. This Nikon model is basically useless for most non- and semi-pro applications outside of controlled studio environment. The quality of footage should always be secondary to AF performance.

insane, basically no useable AF in video. Skip!

You don’t have to spend $6000 on FF. I see no meaningful difference in daytime photos but I prefer nighttime photos from FF. I like FF sensor size as it gives me much more control over DoF at reasonable distances.
Also, FF images are typically sharper at very wide apertures (e.g. f1.2). However, those photos are heavily processed and additional backgroubd blur can be added in PS especially with its superb focus area selection tool. Still, FF is more effortless for both shooting and processing and even more so for videography where you need to be closer to your subject (shotgun mic).

Micro Four Thirds is an impressive system. It is ok to have more choices even if it's not priority FLs at the moemnt. m43 is truly the only alternative to Canon and Nikon. All resources now need to be allocated to refining AF with on-sensor PDAF. It can be done, Nikon did it. We need PDAF for both both stills and video. Even if it's just a single center point, it'll do. It is the last remaining gap between m43 and dslr, everything else is way better already (EVF is MUCH more useful than any OVF, get used to it. OVFs are for film, EVFs are for digital).

Support for mobile devices should be the #1 priority. the forum as is works just fine on PCs already. I find it very unfortunate that no mobile support is coming with this new redesign nor there is any timeline for mobile support. Few months, years, never?

is there a requirement that food must be shallow DoF? Wouldn't it be better to have the entire dish razor sharp in focus?? The above photos may look way too blurry to non-photographers

New camera with the largest photosites. Finally, megapixel race is officially over. Waiting for the photosite size to become the next marketing thing (like DR, ISO, etc.)
