On article Nikon D780 Review (1193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Macromind: From your comparison with the Z6 and evaluation I do not see how you can find the Z6 only 2 overall points higher or the D780 2 points less. After 3.0 firmware addition to the Z6/7 your evaluation of overall score needs to reflect the much needed improvements. After all the D780 is just a mirrored Z6 without the use of the fantastic Z series lenses. The Z's can adapt to the f lenses, but the D780 is stuck with the f lenses. Smaller, quieter, adaptable, and the future of DSLR, the Z6/7.

@howboutraw what limitations are those??

Einride: The Canon R5 has me drooling. What an amazing camera.

lol at the Sony fans trolling as usual. They're all over the Nikon and Fujifilm comments sections too.

@moga well I'd have to disagree on that one. The specs are basically what the a7r3 was. And they've had that for years now

LiOm Photography: Remember when nikonians were " ThaT LeNs iS tOo biG fOr thAt BoDy" whenever sony did something?

@Gon0S why? Because it's super funny watching them pretend like it didnt happen. It's even funnier now that the lenses for the z system are even bigger🤣🤣

LiangMing: It is hard to believe you can bring this monster to street photography. That is why I like the Sony lens, especially the 3rd party lens. They don't scare people away when you use those lens.

@nexlupus you did loose some cells. The nikon Is bigger and wider. 8.66 x 3.5 vs 7.87 x 3.46. Plis thehood is bigger. They weight the same

Dan M Lee: According to DXOMark the new Sony is worse than the A7RIII. For landscapes the Z7 beats it out. the Lumix beats it out too.

Seems like propaganda for Sony again.

@onlyfreeman by the time you size up to catch up with 61mp your next to nothing advantage becomes a huge disadvantage

deep7: A good landscape photo is one which catches you attention and makes you want to look at it as a whole. Often, it will draw you in to look at some detail. Pretty much anything over 18 megapixels (Leica M9, a kazillion Canon models etc.) will provide that level of detail! I know that, because I watch people looking at large prints on my walls and commenting on the detail they see. The perception that more and more pixels make a better landscape camera is hugely misleading.

A clean sensor; very good highlight control; accurate white balance and colour; a robust body which can be taken into the wilds and won't suffer from a little dust and moisture; a very good way to judge focus, depth of field and exposure (really good EVFs are ideal...); sufficient portability; and, most importantly of all, the availability of top quality lenses that cover your desired focal lengths - these are the things that make a good landscape camera.

I guess the 7R4 has much of this but maybe not "best"??

I'm sorry but no. There is a stark difference between the 24x36 prints done with 21mp and the ones done with the now 42mp I have. It's more crisp and actual detail that's there its shown vs before

razorfish: Sony has a hegemony among gear reviewers but there is clearly a backlash in the community. Sony's marketing is beginning to work against them. Sponsoring sites and ”influencers” to write fake "objective" articles is perceived as dishonest and more and more people are realizing this is how Sony does things. Photographers are not like stupid teenagers, blindly following whoever is the latest and greatest ”influencer”. In fact, I’d say most intelligent people are quite put off by the new breed of social media leeches, willing to promote whoever lines their pockets. Looking at the comments here, it is clear Sony would do well to develop a more honest marketing strategy. Their full-frame system is finally beginning to become technically competitive in its own right, and diverse enough in glass selection. You don’t need fake endorsements from youtube leeches any more.

So youre saying this was marketing and not picked by dpr?

Yes BossMan: Missing a competitive perspective?

What about including the new Fujifilm GFX 100, or the Phase One XF, or your bench mark camera IQ 180.

Your review is stacked in favor of SONY's 61 megapixels sensor (effective pixels). And the chorus of also rans probably haven't been offered Sony's latest technology to level the playing field. Creditability and perspective? Lopsided reviews are becoming a habit.

Name a true wide angle lens for any of those cameras.

I'll take things that didnt happen for 200$

Sardonic G: Cool story bro. I'll save 8000 bucks and stick with my Art 85, 35 and 50. Thanks for the review however.

@rapidísimo exept, this is no Ferrari. It's more like an overpriced "special edition" mustang.
Like I said, it's a slightly better lens than the mitakon at 800$

mclaren777: Certainly enticing, but every picture ended up looking like a Sony file by the end.

As a Canon shooter, no thanks!

How does a sony file look?

stevevuoso: Looks like Canon will retain top dog status when it comes to flagship sports cameras.

@cgarrard I work in sports photography, everyone's agrees canon is ridiculously behind in just about everything. The people who havent changed is simply because changing is an expensive affair.

LiOm Photography: The most hipster thing announced in the last 5 years

@armanius the leicas have taken the trophy so far, but the screen that actually makes it look like you're shooting film and pseudo rangefinder just took the look-at-me factor to a whole nother level
