sibuzaru: Considering the kit's cost, they really should think on the optional kevlar ballistic vest accessory for USA, now that you are legally allowed to shot down a drone

webrunner5: If you are a Pro and you can't afford to spend a crappy little amount of 30k to switch, you are in the wrong business.

Get real. I could afford to do that, and I am retired!

If you are a Pro and Don't make 100k a year working for your self, you need to find another business. Because that is not hard to do.

Contra Mundum: Producing light meters in the time of ISO-less sensors is kind of pointless.

It sort of doesn't matter if you have the correct ISO.

You set it at 100 ISO or even lower, and change it in Post if your camera is ISO-less. And a lot are now. Nikon particularly.

ekaton: Impressive. Imagine it had a red dot, the price would be 14k.

Yeah they are outside the ordinary alright. Outside the ordinary peoples money to buy one!

That is about what they are compared to a cheap Panasonic. I bet both take pretty good digital pictures that the average person would Never know the difference..

Boissez: Hmm... interesting. It's a damn shame that Sony has needed the video and weatherproofing.
The ergonomics of a tiny body with large lenses are also questionable.

master kard Did you read the article? They added more screws to the mount.

webrunner5: Every camera manufactor makes great cameras or they would not be in business. Canon, Nikon have a Huge selection of lenses.

I think what a lot of people on here want to see, including me, is a FF Mirrorless, no holds barred, camera from Canon and Nikon that uses their same FF lens.

How hard is that to do! They don't loose sales, I think they gain sales. There are some things Mirrorless cameras do better, and some things conventional DSLR's do better also. Why not make BOTH! Just make it so!

The new Sigma cameras have just what you are talking about and hey it works.

They would be crazy to make all new lenses for them. They just don't want to admit they are the wrong cameras for the times now, a DSLR. Other than the Top end stuff for sports photogs, there is no reason to have the old bodies.

They are going to keep goofing around and they will be history. Young people could give a rats behind about DSLRs. Heck they don't care about Any cameras that Canon, Nikon sells. I can't even remember the last time I even have seen a true DSLR out and about here in the Cincy, Ohio area. Rare as hens teeth.

I remember all the Trump Rallies. Other than the Press, I mean 98% or more of the people in the audience were using their Cell Phones. Now if you are going to go someplace where you want to keep pictures of a lifetime, and you are shooting it with a Smartphone isn't that a Wake Up Call. DuH.

Wow, this thing can take some darn nice pictures. A few tweeks and they are going to have something good here! Color is a bit funky, but that can and will change I bet.

This gallery below is pretty impressive right now.

Canon and Nikon just keeps polishing a Turd. You can only do that so long before it starts to stink.

Triplet Perar: Quote "To capture even more DSLR users."
It is a wrong presumption; Pentax K-1 I would never trade for 5 Sony's FF cameras, no thank you, because Pentax K-1 has many advantages Sony offers, and the DSLR advantage too. I think real problem is not the DSLR, but that Nikon and Canon can't deliver crucial tech that makes *enthusiasts* go for it in terms of FF. Canon's and Nikon's problems:
• lack of IBIS,
• poor MF experience,
• not so great video,
• limited set of features compared to Sony FF cameras,
• considering advantages, Sony's FF is cheaper than Nikon's and Canon's FFs.
It is the failure of Canon and Nikon to capture imagination of wannabe filmmakers (mostly it seems) on supertight budgets. They are ready to purchase a cheapo FF, but resort for old MF lenses that offer cinematic experience without breaking a bank in adverse economic times. It's a shoestring FF experience of the desperate; better something than nothing. "FF buzz" makes them think too they are next Spielbergs.

Probably the same person that gave him a Like, him.

Wow, this thing could end up making a really good studio portrait camera.

You would have to have some Really deep pockets to have shot 575,000 images, and printed 50,000 of them. Wow!
