In reply to:

mermaidkiller: Seems versatile, but the tiny (1/2.3") sensor (even smaller than smartphones !) is a real bummer.
Then I prefer the Sony RX10M4 despite its almost double price tag, slightly heavier weight and less zoom range (25x vs 80x). It has a 1" sensor and is brighter (f/2.4-f/4) which is even better with the larger sensor.
The real FL of this lens is 330mm with f/6.5 = 50mm real aperture. The Sony is 220mm f/4 = 55mm so even larger real aperture.

Indeed the rx10 iv is the better camera up to 600mm but when I need more reach the p1000 is the winner between the two. The bigger sensor is not able to make up for the big difference in focal length. That is why I have both instead of only one.
Also the video stabilizer of the Nikon at 3000mm is better than the Sony at 600mm

Thank you so much :)

Raist3d: This goes also to show for all the "oh Canon is late to the mirrorless game" and "M line is a dead end" that Canon seems to know very well what they are doing :-)

@sportyaccordy, Some people care more about the brand label on their gear than the actual photos and experience they have using the products, sadly.
I couldn't care less...I have a superzoom Nikon P1000 because I feel is the best for that.
I shoot a Samsung S21 Ultra for most travel stuff because I feel it fits my needs for that situation better than an RX100 for example.
I was shooting the A7R IV as my main camera with the A9 as my action camera and now swapped the A7R IV for a Canon R5 as it fits my needs better.
I kept the A9 because it fits my action photographer needs better than the Canon R6.
Why would I limit myself to something that does not match my needs as closely as possible just because of some misguided brand loyalty? :)

In reply to:

(unknown member): To see what this lens can really do check out the Canon forums.
There are a few posters there who make this lens really shine.

I think it is the perfect beginners wildlife lens. It can’t be beat for the price, and the size and weight make it easy to travel and hike with.

You guys seem to be on a different page. One is talking about using APS-C for the extra "reach" by virtue of its crop factor and the other talking about losing pixels by cropping.

In reply to:

aufinger: I'm not sure what's described in the article is what I experienced. My first DSLR was a Nikon D70 that I purchased in 2005 for $1,000. If I wanted to spend about the same amount today, I would be looking at a Nikon D7500. The fact is the D7500 is a much more capable camera that blows the D70 away in every category yet it costs the same as my D70. I can say the same about my recent purchase of a Nikon Z7 II. I paid the same price for my Z7 II that I paid for my D800 eight years ago, and again, the Z7 II beats the D800 in just about every category. And even if the Z7 II did cost more than my D800, I think you have to look a little past the price and take a close look at the new and improved features.

yeah I dont get this article either.

FurryBalls: These sample images look very flat. No 3D look to the subjects.

So you JUST joined the forum to say that?

In reply to:

tozz: It would be great if you started measuring actual T-Stops now when we're seeing faster lenses from every manufacturer, Sigma is cheating quite often with their lenses when it comes to actual transmission (which might or might not matter).

Cheating? F-stops and T=Stops are COMPLETELY different things

whitelens: Sony showed the world how to make great mirrorless cameras. It looks like Canon got the message but Nikon is still wasting time and money to design lenses like their manual focus Z58mm f/o.95S Noct. Nikon is a legendary camera and lens manufacturer that lives in the past. Life is too short to wait for Nikon to wake up. That is why I bought Sony after using Nikon for over 40 years!

mpb002, anti Sony crusade is hilarious

ChelseaPhotographer: I have the 70-180 f/2.8 and while the image quality is great, the lack of Optical Stabilization makes the 180mm focal length a lot less useful. 300 mm without OS seems like a mistake to me.

No is not, come on now

I don't understand what the issue is with using IBIS (unless you're model doesn't have it of course).

Imager of: Who still uses these things. All monitors come calibrated nowadays!

That is not how it works. You need to read about calibration a lot more.

The stupidity of some people visiting Yellowstone drives me crazy. Approaching Bisons is one of the most common things I see and others stepping in sections that are clearly marked NOT to step on.

In reply to:

Avian2016: To speak frankly, and with all due respect to the author of the upper review on P950, I would say that those results we can see as the test images from this cam aren't telling the whole truth. P950 can produce super solid images, with lots of detail. Of course, as with all "superzoomers" having such a small sensor, you'd better keep your ISO up to 400 max.

One of the users who can produce very good results with P950 is Dodge_Rock, our fellow forumer. Here is the link to his Flickr page:

Stay safe, avoid Corona.

I have the P1000 and I accept it for what it is. Able to deliver decent images of things that are too far for most camera/lenses. But super solid with lots of details?...not really unless you do some nice RAW post processing basically then you can get better results in many cases than you would expect from such sensor.
Avoiding the longest end of the zoom (and hence diffraction) also helps.

dmanthree: What does Panny have against PDAF?

I can't believe someone claims lower quality with pdaf yet the rx10 iii and iv have superior IQ with better lenses and much better AF. There is no question about it.
Panasonic needs to get out of this cdaf only mentality fast.
Oh and let's not forget beasts like the A7R IV have pdaf and the IQ is stunningly detailed ;)

In reply to:

Woke: I thought Sony was touting that the a7rIV has improved colour science over its predecessors? How many models do we have to go through until they get it right? Im curious, do other companies like Fujifilm constantly "upgrade"(change) their colour science with each of their models?

Have you USED an A7R IV cause the colors are brilliant!

In reply to:

jay jay02: I Guess Sony users will never get native lenses faster than f/1.4 because of that tiny mount..

troll alert troll alert...and a bad one at that considering we even have 1.2 or faster lenses even for some manual ones.
Wonder how sad you must be with your photography that the only thing that brings you happiness is trolling forums with absurd comments.

Tkbasic, I am not going to waste my time since you are obviously just here to troll. The majority has spoken so complain all you want.
