Sony “giving” Nikon the aps-c primes they would never make. With that the zfc makes sense…thank you Megadap

panther fan: Camera decision should be based on lenses, lenses, lenses, lenses, lenses and lenses

Do we need to say more?

@io_bg They won’t buy, but they need to know that they can, if they want

Foskito: I wouldn't trade my XT3 and its compact primes for the Zfc, but I think the Nikon is a very nice looking camera. If a 3rd party comes with some fast, APS "vintage line" lenses, I might consider one for my collection. -still droolling for a DF, so why not :)

@Foskito. There’s a point that no one talks about it. As a former Nikon aps-c dslr owner, i can say that these small primes from Fuji are a bless. Nikon Z huge lenses make no sense on the zfc (and i love its design and fm2 similarity)…buy a xt30, xt3 and mainly a x-pro to use with these primes, and it is a awesome photography combo. Simply awesome.

rhlpetrus: Since many seem interestedin Brazilian politics in this thread, a few points:
1. Bolsonaro was elected with 55% of valid votes, against the Workers Party candidate, who had been the Ministry of Education of Lula, the runoff second round.
2. Of all voters 147 million, there were 21% od non-voters (voting is obligatory, one is automatically registered to vote) and another 8% who voted blank or cancelled ballot.
3. He was, thus, elected by a minority, about 39% of all voters.
4. Many voted against the Workers Party, as they had been involved in a very large corruption scheme involving the state-run Bazil Oil Co (Petrobras).
5. Dilma, the WP president, presided over the worst recession in Brazilian history, with a GDP drop of 7% in two years, until the pandemic, which we don’t know the extent o economic impact yet.

@rafael... lol typical. Eu votei nulo (segundo turno) Nunca votei no pt na minha vida. Mas quem vota no Bolsonaro é igualzinho a petista. Se não tá do mesmo lado, é o inimigo. Se bem que agora (vocês?) andam juntinhos né. Lula e Bolsonaro contra a lava jato. Rsrs
O mundo é maior que pt e Bolsonaro. E ambos são o espelho da ignorância em seu ápice.
Antes quando eu metia o pau no pt diziam que eu era psdb. Tática típica de quem precisa de um inimigo. Agora se você não gosta do Bolsonaro é petista.
And you better write in English so that others know your opinion

@Willian
Bolsonaro's dream is to become eternal on command. He has obvious dictator tendencies. He is an embarrassment not only for brazilians, but to the hole human race

When the second round came, i said to my wife: we are at risk of having Venezuelas situation here. (from both candidates)
If Lulas candidate had won, economy would pretty much collapse (dilma was doing very very bad before impeachment, aside the fact that they stole so much money)
And if this lunatic won, like he did, i predicted that like Maduro, he would do anything to stay forever in charge. A little (as little as he is as human being) dictator

It's like posting and liking your own posts...LOL
Did you read what i wrote? where did you see that im proud of something?
Do you know when i was born? it may be 1982? do you know how to think?
Or are you just angry? at what? the world? your mom? wife? husband? at your own?
Or you just like to assume things that in your head are the truth?
Do you want to dialog or just tell your opinion?
Do you live in Brazil?
Its not your place to talk about it
I didnt vote for Bolsonaro. He wont even get reelected
But you guys are more worried about looking cool over the internet.
The guy above said that feel pity and now repulsion...you are the people that spread anger, prejudice and violence over the internet, and after that scream against racism, poverty among other things
"Nothing left to see here" absolutely right. You dont want to dialog, you just want to be right, without knowing a thing of what you are talking about. You are not here to get informed, you are here to prove you know things

The funniest part @Frank and @rhlpetrus is that this post is from a portuguese. The discussion would go very far...
but we dont see those portugueses that did "so much" for our natives (slavery among other things) as the whole Portugal

ST@#$FU???
LOL, you are so brave over the internet
You are a fool
Não passa de um xenófobo. Você sabe como está o Brasil??? sabe se o aborto está sendo discutido ou não? sabe que a maioria é contra o presidente? cala a boca anta do cacete. Fica gritando como se fosse muito macho. Menos aí trouxa.

Nope Frank, the seller has 624 sells. Altogether. It may be two three even 5 of these cameras, but not 624...he may even have not sold a single one

The same user wrote this below:
"I know a lot of what is going on there. And it's sad to see people still with their eyes shut by medieval religion beliefs, fake news and a murderous government. It reached a phase where I don't feel pity anymore, just repulsion"
XENOPHOBIA at its peak..."medieval religion beliefs", this is so stupid that i remembered that hangover movie part "you are literally too stupid to insult"

Its very funny to read all these crap here. So much prejudice that is laughable. People talk about Brazil like if everybody here were Bolsonaros. Almost 40% of people hate Bolsonaro.
The portuguese above seems to know 200 million brazilians. Xenophobia at its best.

Do you hope that as well for China, Russia and others? and do you believe that almost 50% of the people that DIDNT vote for Bolsonaro and the 40% that disapprove him deserve to suffer?
"Brazil" is full of people...or do you imagine that we have 210 million bolsonaros here. That we use Bolsonaros masks evereyday and love him...
or are you just ignorant?

@xeppelin. That’s absolutely right. I live in Brazil, i teach photography and know enough professionals to tell that Sony is a small niche here. I have a friend that uses for architecture photography and a few students that are entering the profession and use Sony
There’s no reason for Sony to stay here.
People that have enough money and integers to buy Sony, usually travel and buy it in US or other country

worldcup1982: To people who want to know some facts:
1- Sony decision to exit Brazil has zero to do with the fact that Brazil's president is a jerk (anything written about that is pure speculation or just plain fake news and yes i hate Bolsonaro as much as many others)
2- Sony tvs were always the most expensive ones in Brazil. Allegedly with superior quality.
3- Brazil is a poor country, or better explained, with vast majority of poor people. And now with a dollar conversion of 1 to more than 5 brazilian currency, its almost impossible to spend the amount of money required to buy even a Canon T7i. (price being around 1/3 of used car)
4- Sony had no marketing whatsoever for their cameras in Brazil, almost non existent. Canon, on the other side, spend on smart marketing (offering cameras on tourist spots for them to experiment)
5- Canon is the most known and accepted brand in Brazil. Teaching more than 4000 photography students in the past 10 years, i can say that more than 75% used Canon cameras

@Richard, that’s ok my man. It happens. Memory fails on us sometimes.
And yes, lol, we always used this quote. Since I’m not that optimistic, i tend to say that we will always be the country to the future. That the present will never happen 😔😁. Regards!

@Frank, if you use the mercado livre app and use the Sony word with filters “digital cameras” and after that, “mirrorless” that would result in 397 cameras... a small number
