Mogen2010: Reminds me of the demise of Nokia mobile phones. Too late to the party. No doubt a great camera but I suspect many have jumped ship to Fuji and Sony.

True about Sony UI. It is shockingly poor. Used to it now but it is awful. Wife will buy a 250D soon and a couple of EF-S lenses. When she outgrows it, I expect she will buy a R. But for me Canon were too slow, I went Sony and plan to stay with them unless Fuji MF takes my fancy. If I needed long term support, proven build quality, global services centres, etc. Canon would win.

avekevin: I use the EVF 90% of the time, and I'm not a fan of giving up the hot shoe to have one available. Will there be no M6-level camera that incorporates the EVF natively?

If not, I guess I need to look at the Sony A6600 in more detail.

Do it. Sold my Canon gear switching to a6500. Worked for me.

I'm a Canon fan boy, have been for 25 years or so. But it's too little too late I'm afraid. I bought a brand new a6500 for GBP 550 on Amazon Prime Day / Sony cash back earlier in the summer. Sold all the Canon gear. And when whatever replaces the a6500 shortly has been around for a couple of years, and about to be replaced, I'll upgrade again.

Maybe because people are wise not to change every time a new model is released. That's what phone boys do. Buy a D850 or 5DIV today and it will still be working in 10 years, and still serviceable probably. That covers amateurs. Pros just do what is right

Err... No I don't take my phone everywhere. In fact last holiday I left my phone in the hotel room and carried a Canon M100 and 22mm.

Its the 'best' RAW and JPG from an APS-C camera that really does slip into trouser pockets.

Before Sony Mobile there was Sony Ericsson. Before Sony Ericsson there was Sony Mobile and Ericsson Mobile. Ericsson were over engineered and over priced and could not sell into carriers because of Nokia and Motorola, and a factory fire in Spain that destroyed their only manufacturing plant. Sony thought they could sell because of their name, they couldn't, hence the start of Sony Ericsson. Sony Ericsson thought they could sell because of their name. But Apple and Samsung had joined the party. Sony bought out Ericsson. But Apple and Samsung and Huawei have killed them. Ericsson used to be a player in mobile phones. Sony Ericsson were never players, perhaps for a short while with the Walkman phones. Sony has never been a player and never will. They will slowly die in mobile.

Do those who know what this camera is and what it can deliver really need to read reviews on here? Are they influenced by comments about it not being so good for sports? Thought not, next!

gravis92: this with the adapter and the 200 dollar 40mm pancake would be amazing. It would be about the same as the 6dmk2 with the nifty 50 in terms of depth? But probably smaller in width and height? That 40mm less is pretty darn sharp btw.

But then again, I ask my self. Why not just buy a 6dmk1. Why would the rp be better than the 6dmk1 at a deep disount? Is this difference meaningul for me, something who like to walk around and take pictures once or twice a week?

@pokesfan. I would buy a 6D so I could shoot all day and more without having to worry about power. If battery life of a mirrorless is of no concern, buy mirrorless. For me, I'm sticking with DSLR for years to come. Next camera is a 5D IV or D850.

Could they make a FF version? How much bigger would it be? Pros, cons?

Link | Posted on Feb 23, 2019 at 20:20 UTC as 45th comment | 4 replies

250 shots. No chance. I'll stick with the 1000+ I get from my 6D and buy a 5D IV when funds allow.

I did a shoot recently. A hobby dad type shoot. Indoor ice skating, lights were four spots. My 6D and 135 were a dream. Pro had a D850 and 70-200 2.8. His shots were dream on speed. Mainly due to him being a pro and me a dad shooter. What's my point? People need people like me and the pro to deliver photos. In some scenarios FF DSLR or mirrorless is the only gear that gets the job done. Photos published on FB by others who used phones and aps-c all came with an apology for being crap.

How would this compare with a FF camera when shooting indoor low light sport?

On article Fujifilm X-T3 Review (2478 comments in total)

Can someone help me out? CaNikon offer 50 1.8 for around £100. Add that to a FF DSLR. How do I get the same equivalent FoV, DoF and low light capability from an APs-C? I love Fuji and everything they offer. I don't have interest in video. I really want to switch from CaNikon FF and my 50 1.8 benchmark but just don't see any sense in it for old fashioned stills. Fuji is making me want MF digital.

A used 5D iv is looking to be incredibly good value.

Mogen2010: How about available light photography being one reason to stick with DSLR, especially FF. Battery life another. Serviceability perhaps, willing to bet my Canon and Nikon primes will work in 20 years too.

@dino. nope, no head in sand. I own both. Reliability and longevity, it's DSLR for me. Particularly like getting over 1000 shots on one battery by turning off preview, not chimping and feeling close to the subject.

My Canon lenses all work today and I bet they still do in 10 years, even 20 years. And I bet someone will be around to fix them if they don't. Sony cameras come from their consumer division rather than the TV cameras which come from the professional division. Sony is a fickle company and I don't trust them. Will be interesting to see what pros use at the next Oylmpics. Canon and Nikon is my bet.

Mogen2010: It's perfect for FF owners looking for a lighter body. Under £300 at launch with a free bag is a bargain...

It's not a secondary camera for a pro. But as a 6D owner with a bag of lenses looking for a lighter option when also carrying a bag full of children's gear, I would consider it. Before anyone says Fuji or Sony compact, if it doesn't fit in my trouser pocket it's not compact.
