On article BSI Boss? Sony Alpha 7R II added to studio scene (514 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tikipawa: I think we should take into account that the Sony FE 55mm f1.8 Carl Zeiss is a very sharp lens. I am not sure how this compares to the other camera lenses used in this test. Are these tests really showing the "sensor" magic or the "sensor + lens combo" magic?

I am not sure how it could be done but it would be great to have a system for measuring lenses and sensors isolated from each other.

Awarding Gold, silver etc isn't generalisation?

Even with the Zeiss glass on it Sony can not produce the levels of contrast, colour performance and immense detail 5DS R can. As it stands 5DS R is the best camera for anyone needing big file size.

42 million pixels and 50 million pixels respectively and more than 3K price tags some people still compare the jpeg engines. Internet forums have produced incredible amount of "experts"

Ban almost half of this forum contributors because they talk about bias and disagree with you Rishi.

Matt: It seems like you moved much faster with the Nikon and even faster with the Canon. Maybe for that reason there was no footage of you moving the Sony camera in and out.

You are also testing the AF drive speed of the lens and not the AF ability of the camera.

This latest test seems a bit ridiculous. This Sony camera seems like a great choice for many, including the cats 'n kids and landscape shooter as long as you dont need un-neutered raw support or an overly strong body (or god forbid, prefer optical viewfinder).

But you are trying a bit too hard with those latest "tests"

@ Matt...It wouldn't be surprising at all if it was the case as you describe it. It reminds me of the highly debatable method called Statistics which is often used for misleading the public.

Ruy Penalva: Keep on Canon/Nikon realm. Most predictable. More realistic. More ergonomic. More lens available. More design. More secret to be revealed. The game is only beginning. Sony disappeared in every field it tried to be a leader, from sound to TV screen passing by cell phone. Would it be successful in photography? How long it will endure the competition before having the tongue out of the mouth?

@ j900..You know how to use internet for info right? Incase you don't read below and next time think of something better than "your sorce" cliche. I'm not in business of burying corporations unlike some fanboys try here.

Get your facts checked!!!
1. Experia phone is loss making(Sony statement, not mine)
2. Vaio no longer exist
I wish Sony success in what they are doing but in Camera department they haven't created the entire system to compete against Canon/Nikon yet. Good sensors alone don't make good cameras.
But for me what takes the biscuit is, in support of Sony someone above wrote play station on a photography website. :-))))

Tom Caldwell: The big problem is not that Sony fixed the A7R problems with their technical wizardry, and fixed up the interface along the way, but the bald way the original A7R owners were gypped by buying a camera that had solvable issues.

Now we are artfully told that the first investment was really just a fully paid up Beta run model and now they will happily take more money for an upgrade with the fixes now applied.

Oh that I should be so happy not to have been sucked in and made the first purchase.

How about a discounted price for A7R owners now stuck with a flawed camera body that is far from worn out? This camera seems to have so many "problems" now solved that it must only be one step short of land fill.

@ mgrum...I can provide the evidence if you're really interested.

@ mgrum...Are you saying that a private website can claim to be unbiassed and ethical then accuse members for "rocking the boat"? I don't think it has anything to do with the 21st Century. it's the same old thing called Corporate Bullying.

oselimg: And thousands of mirrorless worshippers reach for their anti-depressants. Joking...well, partly. Time will come I'm sure for mirrorless which will make up majority of cameras being produced and sold. But not there yet. I'm pretty sure Canon will bring out an affordable full frame mirrorless in the near future. It doesn't really matter how mirrorless have advantages especially in autofocus and high speed shooting. If you can track the subject in real time in viewfinder especially when light levels are low the rest becomes redundant. Let us not forget that DSLR's still enjoy a huge arsenal of high quality lenses.

Correction!!!! it should have been written as "If you can't track the subject in real time in viewfinder..." my apologies for not sounding coherent in my original comment.

And of course A7R was awarded Gold Standard by the same people who now say that the camera was flawed. That's very rich coming from an "unbiassed" website. He even says, quote, "better late than never". Tell that to people who spent K's on a camera recommended by Dpreview.

Link | Posted on Aug 18, 2015 at 06:17 UTC

If Dpreview put hoax News here stating that "Canon has just announced their first electric car" would people notice the difference and criticise it for it's DR and noise performance etc.?

batmatty: Im sure if it were using a Sony sensor it would reach ISO 40 million and have all the dynamic range!!!! Typical Canon. NO INNOVATION.

You lot re-invent yourselves in each thread time after time. No corporation can beat that sort of innovation.

abe4652: I didn't think that folks in England cared that much about politics. I guess their hatred of republicans and conservatism is such that they'll use some photos to show how bad these folks are. As proof, the fact that they had food on tables. The unmitigated gall. How dare leaders in America have food on tables around the time of 9/11.

Please. Even the brains-dead liberals posting here on Dpreview are not stupid enough to be so obvious in their bias.

This hysteria against left wing politics lead by Reagan-Thatcher from eighties was most evil world has ever seen. The rest is the s**t we live in now.

I don't understand people complaining about political comments. This pictures are of a highly suspicious event took place that changed the world order. If that is not political what is? Pictures are nothing to talk about either, just run off the mill PR photographs.

Sony seem to have better detail retention and noise performance above ISO 800. But that's not the whole picture when it comes to comparing cameras I guess.

I was wondering when someone would mention Sony sensors. Lenses would've been Canon L naturally :)))))))))) This web site is getting sadder and sadder.

In reply to:

marshwader: As with the 5DsR samples dpreview have done it again, finding samples that show the camera in the worst light and as you say aiming at the weak spots. high Iso, low light ... . Even "Photographyblog" who didn't exactly cover themselves in Glory with their initial fairly incompetent images of the Ds finally provided more interesting and more revealing samples in June. Some of these photos here are nice but they tell you very little about the real world performance of the 5Ds. I'm surprised they didn't stage this photo session in a coal mine. Or why not take some photos from a fighter jet rather than a helicopter.

@Rishi Sanyal...Your excuse/apology is worse than your "crime" and let me tell you why. Including Dpreview has been advising potential customers that to get the full benefits from the sensor 5Ds should be placed on a very sturdy tripod. Remember? ?The camera even has measures against mirror vibration. So why on earth anybody tries to take an aerial shot, especially with this camera, using a vehicle which is vibration ridden?
