PORTRAIT: Impressive product for sure, I absolutely love my FZ1000,but will it be enough to make me drool for an upgrade?,Let's see here,the lens is a bit longer,(480 vs. 400mm.but slightly slower F 4.0 vs.4.5) the ND filter built in is a nice touch tough, makes you save $$$;) better video for sure 4k 60mbps vs. 4k 30mbps..uhmm..

SETI: Picture quality is very disappointing. And I'm Canon user now. My first digital DSLR Nikon D50 with Sigma 18-125mm did much better shots.

Yes, for the same reason I still hang on to my D40X..;)

PORTRAIT: I had A55, the first generation DSLT cam.,Amazing features at that time: 10FPS,FAST LV AF,IBIS,just to name fews..Anyway,I had wonderful memories as well, (weddings, family event, etc..)Never let me down, except for these little "details":
.1 The infamous video heating issue,(basically unusable if you were planning to shoot more than 10/15mns. above 25c..And W/o having the cam quitting on ya, just when you were shooting..;)...and as far as I understand, the new A6300 has the same issue?.
.2 Flash system is mediocre at best (very unreliable!..nothing can beat Nikon system,my D40X has still an incredible metering/flash system..!)
3.Lenses, just Okish, (unless you are willing to spend $$$ with Zeiss be my guest..)but luckily, Minolta has a plethora of old vintage very cheap ones,but again, there where always the downside of the PF issue with many of those lenses...Overall I found the kit lens inferior even compare to my Nikon 18-55mm...,So Sony for these "few" reason I'M ..OUT..;)

Eleson,

Yes almost forgot, that DSLT system implied the "loss of light", and for many this could be a deal breaker..My A55, was almost unusable by the time I was reaching ISO 1600, while somehow, you could overcome that issue,with some of the Sony in camera "gimmicks",it was never w/o trade off... If your type of photography is manly outdoor, you have nothing to worry about It. It is true the opposite, if you type of photography implied also indoor events, than I think there are better option out there... APC/FF sensor Mirrorless cams nowdays,have reached the speed of the DSLR, at the least in good light, and are not that far off even to be use on indoor events, while the lack of native lenses for many is still a of an issue, if you are comfortable, with using adaptors and such, which personally I don't really like it, as it adds weight and so it start to become cumbersome, and so for me it is the end of a mirrorless system as it will be no longer CONVENIENT..my 2 cents thought..;)

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (488 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marximus: I've had the RX10 III for a couple weeks, coming from the FZ1000. I really wanted the range, so pretty much as soon as I got the Sony, the Panasonic was on eBay. That was a mistake, IMO. The Sony is quite a bit slower in multiple areas: startup, autofocus, low light performance. I shot quite a bit with it and it seemed okay, but just to make sure, I purchased the FZ1000 again (crazy, I know) to do some final testing. I took it to the zoo today, and within a couple shots, the Sony was back in the bag and I used the FZ1000 for the rest of the day. The difference in my experience is nearly night and day. For all my critical areas, the Panasonic wins, hands down. Faster startup, blazing fast autofocus, better low light performance, lighter in weight, a fully articulating screen, and about half the price. After doing the comparison, one of the few areas in which the Sony is superior is with that extra reach. I looked at the comparison shots and it does appear that the Sony lens is a bit sharper. And the weather sealing/build quality is nice. But these are all compromises I'm very willing to make. I absolutely love the FZ1000 and I'll be returning the RX10 III. And I'll keep my eye out for the FZ2000:).

Well said,I've been enjoyed my FZ1000 like no other cams before..and I'm coming from DSLR system(from Nikon to Sony..)Now the FZ1000 covered most of my needs.I do have N1V1 as a "pocket cam" when I don't want the "bulkiness"of the FZ1000. I may expand my gear on 4/3 system (since Nikon seems to abandon the N1 system..)just when I'll being miss W/A and DOF...

IF and I repeat, IF this rumour turn out real,I will be sad to see them exiting the Camera biz.We need competitors here, I respect Samsung, there are capable of AMAZING electronic products..I almost ended up buying the very first NX10, remember? for instance, Fuji wasn't even around at that time,and it was the only APC sensor ILC contender besides the very first Sony Nex 3... the question is WHY???..I can't wrap around my head...

But,wait a sec., so the A3000 Sony is an "E" Mount system cam,same Nex series lenses right? Now what about "A" Mount ?? Can this cam carry the "A" mount?? or not? Or will Sony make another cam specific for "A" mount"..? I'm puzzled..

On article Pentax unveils blue and white K-01 in Japan (262 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dale108: I am worried about the direction that Ricoh is taking Pentax. Adding more colours does not enhance a camera. While I have many Pentax products (K5IIs, K30, K01, Q), the recent decisions have left me scratching my head. K50 and K500 with no new features, Q10 with multiple colours and now the K01 new colour. While Canon, Sony and others are advancing their tech (i.e. 70D), Pentax is releasing more colours? I hope it works out for them as I have lots invested in this system.

I feel for you bro, I used to admire PENTAX products, and don't get me wrong they still make to a certain degree very robust cams, but tech wise, you are right regarding in what direction RICOH/PENTAX CO. is going compare to the competition?? it seem to me simply....NOWHERE. My father want me to take over his collection of vintage PENTAX lenses, I told dad, I'm already in the future I'm a SONY shooter! what am I gonna do with them?

harry cannoli: $2800, viewfinder optional?

I just can't get past that. Blame it on my age. Texting is a solution looking for a problem, a Tweet is the sound a bird makes, and as cameras go, the viewfinder is as integral a component as the shutter.

$2800 and I charge the camera the same way I charge my phone?

Have fun with that.

No kiddin'....
