They all look the same to me. Marginal. Great camera but not revolutionary in this regard.

camerosity: The color scans all have a cyan cast...dpreview, check your white point and monitor calibration

I don't think they where going for accuracy? more likely raw results. That being straight out of camera Jpegs.

If this is impressive we can all look forward to Sony's instant retort hopefully in the form of a A7S3, like they did with Nikon D850 (A7R3 following shortly).

90% of camera innovation for the last decade have been in features. These galleries don't show much of that if anything at all. Just an observation, no negativity intended.

Haha they have physical people to operate steadicam, pull focus and colour grade the footage? No need for camera aid.

In reply to:

LeDatas: Beautiful optics.
Impractical for >90% of R mount users. The f/1.8 version will eventually follow.

While I admire Canon's R lenses, from a business perspective, I think Nikon's makes more sense by releasing a bunch of high-quality f/1.8 primes.

The only problem is those Nikon Z lenses look very cheap. I am not had the pleasure of using one so I couldn't say much but they do not look "Professional" . In my opinion. Both Canon and Nikon have taken different approaches and its refreshing to see!

Georgeee: Do we really need F1.2 to make one eye sharp and the other one blurry?

Peter I think at 85mm it doesn't look good but a full length (too much like a zoom lens) with a very fast 50mm/35mm is perfect

Kiro77: 24.5MP in 2020? No thank you. That's why I am still Canon user. With the 50mp Canon 5DS I can shoot wildlife easy in a distance and even I crop it I got excellent resolution. And you can find 5DS the Intl. model for half the price brand new :) Good luck everyone!

Resolution almost entirely means nothing in the modern age.... there are edge cases but its not important.

On article The Nikon D750 vs D780: Should you upgrade? (322 comments in total)
In reply to:

marc petzold: Into Germany, the new, shiny D780 Nikon is 2499 EUR - the older Nikon D850 is 2549 EUR, so just 50 bucks more...go figure. The D780 is as inital price way much being overpriced.

The D750, also became 100 EUR more expensive, but is currently @1099 EUR, so the D780 is a full mind-blowing, horrible 1400 EUR more expensive, than the D750 !

For sure, the D780 is the better DSLR, vs. the older D750...but that little difference (Z6 LiveView Mode, D5 Algorithms for AF, 1/8000s Shutter and 180.000 Metering Pixel Sensor vs 90.000 from the D750, also the latest Expeed 6 (vs Expeed 4 on the D750) Image Processor isn't being worth a full-blown 1400 EUR price difference, for that money, the D780 cost, one can buy the D750 and the Z6 together (its together 100 bucks more than the D780 alone) !

When the D780 would being priced around 1400-1600 EUR, it would being much more worth in terms of Price/Performance Ratio. 2500 EUR are ~2773 USD, go figure !

A fine Sunday Evening, and always good Light.

I agree! As soon as I see it priced at 1400 - 1600 I will jump on.

On article Hands-on with the Nikon D780 (346 comments in total)

Something i've seen rarely mentioned is the lack of support of old Nikon F lenses on the Z6/Z7. Some of my favourite lenses include the 50mm 1.4D and 85mm 1.4D. If it was possible with AF I would have been happy with either.

My question is. Will the D780 with the same AF as the Z6 work with the Nikon F lenses. If anyone has the answer let me know.

A good majority of people are missing the point. People are picking their favourite cameras / brands. We should award the cameras based on their innovation within the industry.

The IPhone 4 / Fuji GFX 50S / Sony A9 / Leica Q are in my mind the best in the list for innovating when no one was asking and have made huge changes.

On article Have your say: Best camera of 2019 (146 comments in total)

By Spec to cost ratio the Sony A7R4 is undoubtedly great. But I think we should be judging the cameras on innovation. The A7R4 doesn't build on the A7R3 very much. Nothing like the jump between the R2 and R3.

Personally the GFX 100 Is a good contender. For its innovations in performance for 44mm sensors. Leica SL2 for its physically inspired design. Panasonic S1H for pushing what we thought was possible for a hybrid camera.

For context I own a Sony A7R3 and Hasselblad 503 kit and I do not have plans to buy the camera's mentioned above. I just think we should show an appreciation for large innovations. Not incremental ones on an already amazing camera :)

It an odd scenario. We don't know if our parcels have been treated this way as much as Fed Ex would know if its employees are doing this ^ .

Light Pilgrim: Have to say that I am very surprised not to see a 4K screen. Why they decided not to do it today? Weird. For me it is a NO GO, the rest is great though.

why?
You'd have worse GPU performance. Worse battery life and you would struggle to even perceive the difference?
