On article Serious speed: Sony a9 real world samples gallery (437 comments in total)

I think that the images look great! Folk are struggling if they can only pick out the odd shot to criticise. Well done folks.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (505 comments in total)

Another factor is the huge price difference............................The new camera seems great. But Sony really are pushing this and have to....old habits die hard. To balance the view that Sony articles are taking front and centre stage at present, I would love to see further articles on MF vs FF vs APSC and smaller. New players here too.

barrym1966: I can answer this having just switched from Nikon to Sony

the cost was all the nikon gear + about £8000 - £10,000

but well worth the change

For sport?

Mac McCreery: "Heck, there was even a switch for turning its in-body image stabilization system on and off." Lol. My lowly Pentax K100d Super had one of those!

Sorry. It's just the tone of the announcement, as if it is a new thing!

Aroart: This might be the turning point for those last few CANIKON Photo SHOOTERS TO WAKE UP AND SEE THE BENEFITS OF MIRRORLESS AND LIVE VIEW SHOOTING.. The Video guys have seen the light.. The glass will be the only thing holding them back.. Nikon will no longer be an Icon and Canon simply can not evolve fast enough...

Less of the 'old people' pal.
We can show you kids a thing or two.

George.Read my very short post very carefully.

The author points out those flimsy port doors. Is the weather sealing suspect and of what use is a half sealed camera to an outdoor sports photographer? Apart from that it looks lovely!

On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (262 comments in total)

I'm curious to know how a camera 'shows its age'. It is an oft used phrase. But if AF is good enough for your photography, the sensor still has good image quality (a given with most all releases over the last how ever many years?), and you don't gun then I'm puzzled!

I look forward to the weekly sales figure. Two months is clearly far too broad a window to give a true indication of dominance....................................

Amazing spec. Is this a video camera that looks like a stills camera that can also take stills?

I'm only 49 but as a kid I drooled over the F2 Photomic and the Canon F1.
I did use a Nikkormat later and loved it. The Canon Ftb I also had was rather good too!

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (899 comments in total)

What a wonderful camera. A game changer in many ways. Superb sensor, portability, great lenses. Alongside the Pentax 645z we have machines that render in a superb way. Stick to your FF if you want speed, but for absolute image quality these two cameras, at their respective prices, are hard to beat.

GarysInSoCal: RIDICULOUS battery life... come onnnnn Pentax! I'd have to buy THREE of your overpriced batteries to get me thru 1 day of shooting... not to mention having to change batteries at what I'm sure will be very inconvenient times. And your 27 point AF system SUCKS ... far behind the competition's better AF systems... and this camera is freakin HEAVY! Back to the drawing board... :P

If you want better battery life just go mirrorless!

In reply to:

deluk: Like many I guess I looked at the conclusion first and the bar graph. Seems unreasonable to me that a camera that's only rated under Performance as "Fair", (halfway between the poor and good) should warrant a silver award. Do you really want to buy a camera with sub standard performance?

Because a photographer using it can take good photographs?

I'm really enjoying these insights from the folk at DPR. I just use a Sigma 17-70 and most shots are in the 30-40mm (35mm equivalent) range. Sadly finances prohibit more! My favourite film lens was a Canon FD 135 3.5 mounted on a FTb. Just lovely.

Mac McCreery: Great stuff. If you are not a sports shooter or a video geek you have a top of the tree APSC stills camera. Image quality, that's what matters. The rest is up to you.

Sorry. I'm not cynical. I equally praise other brands on here. Nice try though!
