Full frame, very fast sensor, low light king, variable ND, compact, most developed mirrorless lens system. Love it!

Edwinrudolf: Very fast, very acurate, very reliable, very stealthy. Always nails focus, regardless of situation. Never overheats. Not bulky. Lots of good 20fps glass. No Jello. The silent shutter works so well that I have not turned on the mechanical shutter yet. Not even once!

Lenses that can keep up with AF and Apperture changes fast enough to keep up with the cameras 20 frames per second in sports and fast action or just randomly playing kids.
Sony has deliberately designed the FE system to match 20fps, so many lenses are certified for 20fps.

gphome: Has to be the smallest hardware upgrade ever!

Don’t know why A9ii upgrade is discusssed in this thread?
A9ii improved the dynamic range, improved AF in both photo and video, new processor, improved connectivity, card slots, body design, shutter.

Fotookes: Fro said it, and I'll repeat it: this is an a7III with its 'prisma' cut off!!! All that talk about compact size and travel camera and blablabla.... Rubbish! It is an a7III without the top!

And better AF, it has A7Siii AF

jonby: A photographer's camera at a reasonable price point. Great work from Nikon. I hope they get back some of the market share they deserve with this one.

You don’t want to adapt lenses unless you have no other choice.

- Great IQ zooms, good AF, reasonable cost, smallish => Tamron trinity, Sigma trinity
- High IQ , high speed AF photo and video, compact size, low weight => Sony 85/1.8, 35/1.8, 20/1.8, Zeiss Batis series
- High IQ primes, good AF, medium cost – Sigma primes 85/1.4 ..
- Nature and sport, Best IQ, fastest AF - GM600, GM400, GM135
- Nature and sport, high IQ, fast AF, reasonable cost - Sony G200-600, GM100-400, GM70–200, Sigma 100-400

The Fuji system really suffers from the medioker Autofocus. This lens is no exception.

If I had a dollar for every green/magenta skin tone comment I've read in comments about a Sony Camera, I'd have a free FE 70-200!
Now it's the other way- too orange/yellow.

Yes, that pretty much sums it up

Nja, the RF 15-35 corner sharpness is so so, heavy vinjet, and very busy bokeh. And 250% price and 200% weight.

Entoman - Its good to compare MILC lenses, when there is an option available. As you said we have to settle for what is available. Take a look at the Tamron 17-28 and try to campare it with an RF lens. You find you have to double the weight, almost tripple the price, and still similar IQ. Just the fact that you must double the weight means there is no RF alternative to the Tamron. But you can settle for double wieght.

As the Tamron mirrorless zooms outperform CaNikon corresponding DSLR zooms, are you saying all DSLR zoom owners have settled for lower IQ? Or is that simply because DSLR zooms are yesterdays tech, with yesterdays users?

Nonsense, Tamron has good glass, and fast AF in the zooms. As recent as a year ago Tamron had the best selling lens of all.

Well, you have been around for almost a week now, so you should have plenty to draw from :-)

Einride: That 50 is going to be incredible. They already have the 50/1.8S so don’t need to do a balance act like the Canon RF lens. I expect this to be the best 50mm there is.

Probably good IQ.
AF speed? AF silence and video smoothness? Portability?

FuzzyDice: Where’s the Nikon Noct Z mount 58 F/0.95?

The Z-mount 1.8 AF lenses are great and they are shown in the graph.

Considering the R5 goes hot during normal photo shooting, hot to the extent that the camera can limit the 4K HQ available time to zero after a relaxed photo shoot, how does that increased temperature impact noise level in the photos?

phouphou: Wouldnt it be interesting how other camera manufacurers handle heat dissipation?
Did Sony do a better job with the a7siii?

@ lightnchade ”To me it seems a reasonable design choise”.

Sure, if you don’t care about battery time and about the camera overheating and that just by taking a couple of photos per minute you drastically reduce its film capability and that you reduce the life span of the camera with the heating problems and that it takes hours to cool it down properly.

In my opinion that is not an obvious reasonable design choice for a 4000$ pro camera. That level of unreliabillity does not bring me joy.
