wareyes: This lens is the main reason I moved over to Canon from the GFX and Sony system. It is simply amazing.

First off, as someone who owned the 24-105mm RF F4, to compare these two lenses is not appropriate, as they serve very different purposes.

Secondly, you seem strangely obsessed with “sharpness”. I never said I bought this lens for sharpness, one can easily attain as sharp or sharper images from a Sigma lens adapted to the RF mount. This concept of sharpness is just one trait of a lens, and something that I got over years ago. The lens is sharp enough, but the combination of versatility and character of the files is something that cannot be achieved from any lens that I’ve used. Those are my “feelings and thoughts.”

leewardism: While Canon keeps updating basic full frame it will pressure Sony to do the same for the Alpha Mount camera’s. Possibly an A99 III somewhere between the existing the 24mp and the 40mp. The price of legacy lens are steadily dropping, giving a rebirth for the Alpha Mount.

No...no. That will not happen. A mount is deceased.

retr01976: Don't worry guys, if you don't like the A6400, the A6500 will probably be out in two weeks ;)

A6500 has been out for 2 years now. Can't tell if you're being facetious, sorry if you were.

davev8: bias against canon again i see ...here are some of the bullet points that "we like" in the conclusion for the Nikon Z7

1 Top-plate info display
2 Body is small, light and sturdy
3 Flip-out screen for high and low shots
4 Weather-sealing
5 USB charging
6 Headphone and microphone socket

so why don't DPR like the above when they are fitted to a Canon ? ....just saying

@davev8 Really, no bad cameras in 2018? I dare you to plunk down your hard-earned on the new Yashica DigiFilm. You'll be singing a different tune.

Jx9: I like tough reviews, but I also think there's a subconscious or conscious bias against Canon. For example, the lack of an intervalometer is disappointing, but it wasn't mentioned as a con on the A7 III, which doesn't even have a basic timelapse mode. I emphatize with Canon because I often feel like I'm judged to a higher standard as an Asian American. Disappointed in DPReview for lacking in basic safegaurds to prevent bias like using a simple checklist. How hard is that?

Why would you equate Canon to being an Asian-American? What ethnicity would you assign Nikon, or Sony, or Fuji for that matter?

@Battersea

I'm a Sony shooter, but I'm interested in talking about gear, not putting down others. You can see in my gear list that I have extensive experience with almost all brands, and feel I can be as objective as possible discussing brand pros and cons. Sorry your experience with Sony shooters seems to be negative. To be fair, I see the general DPR discordance mostly as a conflict between mirrorless and DSLRs, but we're all in the same boat now :)

I don't doubt it, but why would saying a camera is well-built be controversial? You can debate the other merits of the camera, but Nikon has always made solid camera bodies (second to only Pentax, IMHO). This is no surprise.

FujLiver: Buy a Sony A7iii or A7Riii - job done :D

@RaLuC

So if I have enough money to buy a crap load of Sony gear, does that give me permission to be critical of Nikon? You seem to be preoccupied with the notion that critics are simply people who can't afford Nikon. Get over yourself.

CaptainNoddy: No matter you are Sony fanboys, Canikon Fans, Fuji loyal fans etc., the release of Nikon mirrorless cameras will force Sony, Fuji, Panasonic to release their best innovations in the cameras.

Customers win!

"in any market the incumbents rarely need to be awesome or to introduce amazing new features vs. the challengers... "

Except in this situation, Canikon are the challengers. We're not talking about DSLRs anymore, this is mirrorless, and Sony is the big fish. Since C/N decided to go with a new mount, they're essentially working from scratch, and are now significantly behind.

mod2001: Exactly what I was waiting for, a D850 in a smaller package, fantastic job Nikon, ordered.

I don't know if you're being facetious, but almost all early reviews have agreed that this camera falls well short of D850 status. You have to start somewhere, I suppose. I miss a lot of things about Nikon, but the Z6/7 make me feel better about my choice to switch.

ChapelThrill23: I would love to see Sigma make small f/2 or f/2.8 primes for full frame E-mount cameras. A big part of the appeal of mirrorless for me is the lower bulk and lighter bodies but having a huge lens gets rid of that advantage. I love the size of the f/2.8 APS-C 60mm SIgma and would love a similar full frame approach. For instance something like the tiny Zeiss 35 2.8 for half the price would be great.

There is a lens that's like the Zeiss 35mm for half the price, made by Samyang. Try it, it performs close to the level of the Zeiss for $300, but is not as sharp wide open, which is the defining trait of the Zeiss.

For those saying defending these selections, please take a look at the World Press Photo picks. Those are excellent images!

Sony-26
Canon-26
Nikon-20

And I'm a Nikon guy...

Ultimately, this was a fun game, people shouldn't take it so seriously. As others have said, jpegs kind of doomed this test. All 3 cameras are more than capable.

gskolenda: Well, I'm a happy camper! Got my D750 back from Nikon in 13 days from date shipped to today! Work was done at there New York facility. They replaced the Shutter, Cleaned the Sensor, Updated the Firmware, Adjusted the Auto focus operation, Checked the Communication, and cleaned the outside! I purchased it used with 2053 shutter trips on July 4th, I feel like I have a brand new D750 for one heck of a deal! Very pleased with Nikon so far.

Get my 2 D750s back tomorrow from the LA service center. Shipped it to them on July 18th (I'm in San Francisco), so turnaround time about the same for west coast repairs. Anxious/excited to see what was done, I'll update if there's any surprises.
