ms18: Lens selection is very crucial aspect in type of photography. I would first go through the lens selection then look at a a capable body with that mount. If the have good lens they will definitely have good body.

@Sai1
It's not same for every one. for example I don't use zoom lenses. Some system might have good zoom but bad primes. my advice is to guess your imaginary lenses see who have them? At least with some compromise. I use B&H website to see the lens options. (Any way i can't buy from b&H as I'm from Sri Lanka)

Except Fuji many APS-C cameras don't have good lens selection. Sports and wildlife are exceptional cases where APS-C shines. If I'm to choose APS-C I will go with Fuji. Most FF have good lenses.

@chickenballs
That's right. but i advice to check the lenses (Even adopted ones) before choosing body.

ms18: I wish Sigma or Tamron will make a 55-60 mm f/1.2 PRIME lens so I can buy a Sony A6xxx peacefully. There is a samyang 50mm f/1.2 It's a great lens but 75mm equivalence is bit short for my taste.

I would also like a cheap 24mm f/1.4. Sony's zeiss is expensive and not so great wide open. Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is bit narrow. I would like two primes 35-40mm f/1.4 and 80-90mm f/1.2 to use APS-C. Both should be sharp wide open

Yes. But some one who want mirror less instead of DSLR fuji is really worth the price. I prefer EVF over OVF.

ms18: I'm wondering why a7R iii is getting released prior to a7 iii?
Btw I'm waiting for more price reduction on a7 ii.

But will they release a7 iii?
will That be most likely to have lower price point that a7R iii ?

It's good news for me because a7 iii will have even better features with less resolution. I don't need more than 18MP.

PhotoCGI: Sony executives most be colour blind. They try and try to produce the best "technical" camera but continue not paying attention to the widely acknowledged fact they have the worst colours of any camera. (not to mention their automatic while balance is crappy too).
Its a real shame because they do produce amazing cameras but when you compare their colours with Nikon, Canon, Olympus and Fuji..well, you get a big dissapointment.
They don't learn, unfortunately. Have they ever wonder why Apple and others pay so much attention to the colour of the photos on their mobile devices and the quality of the screen on which we see them?
Yep. First impression do count. That's why many leave Sony and return to Nikon, Fuji or whatever when they realise their Sony camera may be "technically perfect or close to it" but results are simply not appealing.

WHY YOU NO SHOOT RAW?

CameraTolerantGuy: What' the reason to buy this instead of the a6000 + 10-60 PZ?
F2.8 vs. 3.5 and a touchscreen?
Yay.

I believe only reason can be one's own stupidity.

JackM: This might be the single stupidest idea I've ever seen wash over the transom of this website in the 14 years I've been reading it.

If they had actually invented a digital film cartridge that would fit in any 35mm camera, I'd buy one instantly for my old Pentax MX.

Yes yes. :D Just saw.

Semajal: This is literally the most goddamn stupid thing I have actually heard this year.

So instead of just swapping settings in camera, you actually have to buy and insert a "fake film" roll to change the settings.

This would have been an incredible April fools.

I couldn't agree more

In my opinion problem with Sony aps-c is lens selection. Not the quality. If they make dedicated lenses for aps-c similar to Fuji they can make Fuji cry. But a manufacturer with ff wouldn't do that. A6500 work well for sports though. For normal work I like a7ii or even old A7 more than crop. This is because of lens selection and future. Sony did not make a dedicated aps-c lens after the release of A7. What the point of buying expensive full frame glass and using in crop?

I want to compare the AF point spread in viewfinder between 5d mark iii and 6d mark ii. I take photos with shallow dof shots handheld. Is there a comparison tool or site to compare the viewfinder for AF spread?
