People are saying that they would prefer a X100F over this camera... I do wonder...is 24mm f/2.8 at the wide end of a lens that zooms all the way to 75mm really that bad compared to 23mm f/2 FIXED FOCAL LENGTH lens that cannot zoom at all for obvious reasons? Or they're just complaining because the lens is f/5.6 at the long end?

All I see is a really compact APS-C camera that has more functionality than a X100-series for a similar price.

Arsh: For $1300 with that lens, no thank you, I can get x100f for the same price or cheaper and just the style is much more fun than anything Canon has made!

Does the X100F have a zoom lens?

How different is 24mm f/2.8 at the wide end of a zoom lens is from 23mm f/2 fixed focal length lens to make it sound as if the lens is really bad?

So now we pay for style rather than functionality?

Sponsored content and review sites don't match very well...At least ethically.

I mean, if you're going to talk nicely about one product because they're paying you money. How do you justify later or before to talk objectively about the same product or to mention it on comparison articles?

I read the Sponsored Content FAQ and it doesn't convince me. Good thing they're labeling Sponsored content now so I can begin skipping them from now on.

Now, I would like DPReview to post the laws that says this is illegal. When dealing with aviation, we know that it is illegal to fly a drone in controlled airspace without clearance and/or in close proximity to an operating aircraft. But when dealing with trains, is there such law that prohibits the use of flying vehicles in close proximity to them?

Rooru S: As a pilot, I agree with this. I had enough with clueless people flying their drones on and near the final approach path to local airports. Those people are just seeking getting a 'cool shot' to share over social media over safety.

There must be a way to hold people accountable for their silly actions.

@winkalman

Think about this. Many people are using their drones recklessly because they don't feel the threat of getting prosecuted and held accountable for any mishap due to operation of drones in restricted, sensitive or inappropriate airspace.

But, by registering a drone with your name, you know and you keep in mind you might get in trouble if you cause problems, because you know they can track you in case they catch your drone or if they detect it inside a particular airspace without the required authorization.

Why does DPReview ignores the a99II, the closest competition to the D850? No mention whatsoever of it.

Wonder if it will be able to match a99ii resolving power.

So...let me get this right...the a99II, which is superior in almost everything compared to the 5D Mk.4 (and cheaper too)...didn't manage to get in the short list but the 5D Mk.4 did??

loafer: DSLR are finished. The only advantage they have is price. And that means they are on the race to the bottom.

Really doubt it. Try to bring a Mirrorless camera to a country in armed conflict. If you're in the middle of gunfire at night, and you want to take a shot, the EVF will reveal your position even more compared to an OVF since the EVF is a light emitter.

You will get shot (no pun intended).

The same can be said about shooting in the middle of the african sabana, where you're required to be adapted to darkness to see where the hell you are walking... the EVF will prevent your eye to adapt to darkness. I can think of many other scenarios where mirrorless are out of place. DSLRs will stay here.

TwoMetreBill: Come on Sigma, it is time to stop making separate versions for each mount and build one base model and an adapter for each mount. All you are doing is raising your costs and lowering your customer base.

No thanks. These lenses are for SLR anyways. No need for adapters and Sigma already makes mount conversions.

In the past (80-90s), camera manufacturers would ship additional batteries besides the one that came with the camera, with a plastic cover. They should bring back this practice.

how do they compare to the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 and 50-100 F1.8?
