On article What you need to know about Sony's a7R III (622 comments in total)
In reply to:

legokangpalla: Why is it names A7RIII instead of A9R like A7II -> A9?
Is there going to be an A9R?

Well I thought since both had 24mp sensors, I somehow thought A9 was A7ii successor. Also, looking at A9 and A7R3, both are quite similar in terms of the physical dimensions, dual SD cards, larger battery etc.

If there is A9R, I'll probably be even more confused.

I want to see the low light photos though, cause tugging around full frame camera is no fun at concerts.

MPS Photographic: OK what are the red objects at the bottom of #7 (Pipppin's) legs? Booties? The caption only says he was found "in a poor state". If those actually are his feet I'm going to hurl.

Yeah, those puppy boots, I guess the owners thought it might get a frostbite.

zakk9: Please explain this to:
Olympus E-M1, which at $2,000 has been critisised for being expensive, has similar specs, apparently better weather sealing, fully articulated LCD, dual IS and uses USB-3 vs. the USB-2 on the Sony. How is the larger sensor and lower specs of the A9 worth $2,500 extra for a camera that doesn't even offer the long lenses I would need shooting sports?

Not trying to criticize EM1, but I think most people who say EM1 is expensive are saying "it's expensive...for a micro four thirds."
Full frame high fps, fast AF cameras have been always expensive as far as I can remember, Canon 1DX for an example.
On the other hand, crop sensor camera with same capability(including resolution) have been cheaper in comparison.

And besides, I think you are paying for the compact size more than anything on EM1. A9, or A7 despite being mirrorless, need full frame lenses and are much heavier in comparison.

Who makes the sensors for Fuji? Only sensor makers that make APS-C sized sensor are Sony, Teledyne, and Samsung.

RichRMA: When will modularity come to Japanese cameras like mirrorless and DSLRs?

If you are looking for modularity in digital stills, you should probably look at mid-format cameras. Most mid-formats have digital back, lens with integrated leaf shutter, and body.

Dear Samuel Spencer
Would it be possible to do more of "product photography" with this lens? I honestly can't see anyone using 1.4f at 135mm on a living subject, but I think it has very situational but unique capabilities in photographing inanimate subjects.

I mean apart from image hosting what's the use for it anyway? Most photographers are going to keep RAWs for editing later and large groups of RAW files can be easily loss-less compressed if they are not going to be accessed anytime soon.

Get an aftermarket foldable lcd hood. I actually prefer this over viewfinder as I feel it offers better peripheral visibility and doesn't get in way of my glasses.

I think my description confused a lot of people. I wasn't talking about EVF converter like the one LJ mentioned -although it would work as good- something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Kaiser-206075-Folding-Screen-Black/dp/B00175PNXQ.

@ veroman
Usually a fold-able one is quite small, only adds around 5mm thickness. Of course it will be larger when in use but honestly I think that's a moot point.

papa natas: Well, The World Of Finances & Economics is a Master's Game that most of us, common mortals, can't really understand. I, the first.
One thing I know: Since Sony is hogging the sensor market (They just bought Toshiba) And Sony sensors are at the core of other camera brands, it will be obsolete, in the near future, to compare different camera's imaging performances, since they will be using the same Sony sensor. It will be like comparing gasoline brands when they come from the same refinery.
And for years they've got us believing that Esso really put a tiger in our tank.

Huh I thought Teledyne still maintained a sizable portion of the image sensor market share?

It is said that this lens 's depth of field is so narrow it can even cut through the fabrics of this dimension. It goes by the name of the Subtle Lens...

Yeah the lens cap annoys the crap out of me as well. I was half minded to ask someone with a 3D printer to print me out a new one...

Seriously? Use your phone as hotspot. I used to have a thinkpad model with LTE sim, but never ended up using it as very few carriers offer multiple devices for single plan ie) you need multiple plans.

Only downside is often you cannot share your phone's GPS with a laptop, but I got around it with a GPS sharing app.

As an owner of A7R, I'm desperately holding my self from getting this! Hopefully I can wait until price comes down or A7R3 is released.
