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 ;)

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!

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.

OneLeggedCat: Sony a7/R? Oh good grief. This is why online polls are trash.

Guess you didn't understand what the poll was about. Its ok...maybe next one in ten years. ;)

Rootbeer Man: D850 is still excellent! 🤔

That was not the point of this. It was not revolutionary like the A7 and A7R were. If it was about best then surely one of the latest models would have won this

Mariano Pacifico: End-of-Next-Decade predictions:
1. I'm so scared of the existence of Nikon, Olympus & Canon
2. Sony will dominate the market
3. Big boys cameras will end up up just like large formats
4. There will be mergers of camera manufacturers to stay afloat against the onslaught of Sony
5. Leica will forever make special edition collectible cameras

Jonathan Mac, so funny that you "see" ALL the bad things Sony is doing according to you yet you fail to see the terrible things Canikon has been doing for MANY more years than Sony which got them in the place they are today...trying to catch up with Sony camera bodies that are not even their current models.
Its time to set aside fanaticism and give Sony the props it deserves because, without Sony, I bet you anything that you wouldn't have Full Frame mirrorless, Eye AF or anything remotely like that from Canikon today.

In reply to:

moimoi: Comparisons between the apples, oranges, cornflakes and assault tank. Yup, it makes little sense.

My recommendation if you have the money: Fuji GFX100 >> Sony A7Riv

Is not about having the money but what you intend to do with the camera. There are LOTS of things the R4 can do that the Fuji cannot, so more money is not always the smart option.

In reply to:

Photo Liz: This is a pleasant surprise.
If demand remains high it will drive Nikon to make more of these innovative specialty lenses that separate them from other mirrorless manufacturers.

Innovation? A .95 manual lens is innovation???

felix from the suburbs: Here we go again, Sony. For the record I have been a Sony user since the Alpha 100. Have lived through Sony's forward momentum which included new cameras with less features than old cameras. Why would they bring out a camera without internal stabilisation at this stage of the game. It's like the old A mount days when newer models (such as Alpha 290) represented a step back with less features than previous models. I guess this is what you get when an electronics company dabbles in cameras and hopes that their name alone will generate business.

Price ranges..different features. Have you actually seeing others like theb$1500 Fuji XT3, or canon bodies, etc? Way more money and no stabilization ;)

In reply to:

love_them_all: The Sony STF is a steal for the price compared to this lens. The Fuji does not give the same results. It is too difficult to tell it apart from the regular version. The Minolta / Sony 135 STF gives the most pronounced effect but it is MF. I am waiting to see how much actual light lost from the 85 1.2 DS.

Is not subtle when You cant even see a difference any more. The 100mm STF may not be for everyone but you can see the effect which IS the point of owning a lens like that.
Is a nice option when a specific background may not be as nice as you wish or just to give you a different look.

Searching: What an ugly looking camera.

@Tomasz.. no idea how anyone can say this is better looking that the sony a6000 series...

Thomas A Anderson: If cost plays no role in this comparison then size shouldn’t either. I’ve got a $10,000 rig the size of my head that blows these three out of the water.
Of course the Sony is better. If an extra $400-$600 doesn’t but you a better lens then what will?

I had Canon G7X 1 and 2 before..both had terrible lenses at the wider end. The RX100 V and VI I had were definitely better but there is indeed a lot variation with any lens so a Lens Rental approach would be better for sure to determine how good or bad each lens is.
As of right now, if I were to base my decision on this article, I would be going for either the RX100 or the G7Xiii and originally I was leaning towards the G5X.
As for Sony "pre-processed", if it is or not, the end result is superior in the samples above and that is what really counts so not much to argue there.

Of course size matters because these are mostly small travel cameras..where you are paying a premium to get more quality in a smaller package.
And in any case, you dont need anywhere near 10k to beat the performance of either of these small compacts anyways ;)

P10004K: 2019 Buying Guide: Best enthusiast long zoom cameras : The RX10 IV has a 25x 8.8-220mm lens vs 125x 4.3-539mm in the P1000. I sold my RX10 III with the same 8.8-220mm lens after using the P1000 for the extra long range.

Then that works for your needs but doesnt mean the P1000 is a better camera than the Rx10 IV because it is not unless you need super long range.

Sure has a longer focal range but everything else is inferior to the Sony so to each its own. If it was a comparison of which one has the longest reach then sure, the P1000 would be the winner.

miric: It's possible to count all the 2nd card clot moaners in one place again.

Sure, there is no guarantee you are going to get the shot no matter what...that does NOT make it less important to have 2 cards than 1. You are trying way too hard to argue something that CANNOT be argued. Again...YOU want to take the risk of only one card during a one time event..be my guest.
I am done as there is no point to argue something that is simple logic.
