dmanthree: What does Panny have against PDAF?

Luis Gabriel Photography, RX10 III has CDAF and its AF performance is behind FZ1000 cameras. RX10 IV has good tracking AF and it costs double.
Panasonic DFD is actually good for photography but not so good for video.

steelhead3: I betcha that Nikon will announce a D6x with Sony's 61 sensor (+a z version)...still too many old folks buying cameras to give up on the old mechanical cameras.

Use silent shutter and mirror slap is gone. You don't need 20 fps with 50+ MP cameras, do you? So silent shutter is your answer.

Here's what will happen: Nikon will release the camera, then 2 days later they'll issue a press statement saying "due to higher-than-estimated demand we cannot answer all preorders timely. We are sorry for the inconvenience".
Like Nikon has done forever.

"version)...still too many old folks buying cameras to give up on the old mechanical cameras."
Because only young and athletic and handsome and smartest people buy mirrorless cameras. And because only oldest buy DSLRs. Because only you know everyone in the world.

Matpan: But... were these taken with full frame or crop sensor cameras? did they have IBIS? Dual Card slots? What was the resolution on their EVFs? These are the real important questions... Composition, narrative, and sheer skills are all so not important.

All were taken with AnimalEye-AF and were underexposed by -5EV to lift shadows. That's the only way to take good photos, isn't it?

M Lammerse: Not overpriced...but much too overpriced. Especially in this time many will look at a good price point in relation to specifications and the logo (brand) comes in second place.

Looking at recent offerings of Asus and MSI with latest AMD processors which are upgradable anf with a lower price point. It's a no prainer for those who have to pay attention to spending the coming months (years) to go for an other brand.

"Any Windows machine I've owned has been lucky to last 3 years before some component failure."

??? Joking, right? How do you use your laptops? None of my Windows laptops, I mean none, have failed to work. None. My mother still used my 17" Dell Inspiron from 2008 (or maybe 2009). I upgraded RAM and installed Windows 10. Done.

"Good luck running Windows 10 on a 2009 PC...sure you may be able to make it run, but it will run horribly and the applications will run horribly."

100% wrong. Windows 10 is the lightest and fastest Windows ever. Even on 2009 Dell Inspiron laptop it runs great.

"poor security, viruses, crashing, and just in general being horribly designed and difficult to use"
Using Windows for 30 years. Those issues have been resolved at least 10 years ago (I'd say since Windows 2000). Really, I have never had those problems since Windows 2000.

ShaiKhulud: Open mount strategy was such a long game for Sony, it's good to see it's finally payed off.

Both 28-75 and 70-180 by Tamron are stellar entry points simply unreachable on other closed garden systems. Samyang primes are very attractive for the price. There are tons of interesting manual glass too. And adapters of every shape and size. Smart, dumb, you name it.

And it's not like Sony's own lineup is lacking. I'm using FE 24-105mm f/4 for months now and, frankly, this is the only lens I need.

S_Connor, I don't need to read anything because I know what is in the market and what isn't.
Canon already has the f2.8 trio and Nikon's ultra wide angle f2.8 lens is coming very soon. Now Nikon has a great 14-30mm f4 lens.

Scottelly: They SHOULD be making SD Express cards by now. What gives?

Xeppelin, yiu definitely haven't used any XQD or CFE card. Buffer cleaning is instant. That is what is needed in high-end cameras. That's why 1D and D5 series moved to more modern cards.
Fastest UHS-II cards are as expensive as XQD cards so I see no reason not to switch to modern cards. SDE also promises fast speeds.
Entry level cameras don't need such speed so I see no reason for newer cards there but state of the art cameras like R5 definitely need CFE.

mferencz: Clearly Sony's advantage is lenses be it 3rd party or a huge head start. They have proven they can make lenses as good as anybody as well. It will be year(s) before any of the others really catch up and even then limited 3rd party will offer less nicely priced options. Not that the others won't catch up, but it's about now. In 5 years computational photography can be a new thing and change the ballpark entirely.

Actually in less than 2 years, Nikon and Canon have come up with f2.8 trio and high quality f4 lenses. These lenses came to Sony system quite late. I guess in less than 2 years there won't be huge differences among all FF systems in terms of lens variety.

Is Sony 24-105 is the only lens you need, then you'll feel home in Canon RF as well with RF 24-105mm :)
But yes, Sony E mount has the most variety of lenses for the time being. Saying that, I don't think Canon and Nikon systems are weak at all. They have the f2.8 trio already, and Canon has nice f4 zooms as well.

XQD and CF Express are not grossly over priced. Fastest UHS-II cards are almost as expensive and XQD and CF Express cards are 5-10 times faster.

Xeppelin, UHS-II is a lot slower than CF Express cards. Canon's decision to use CFE + SD was st.pid. There is huge difference to clear buffer between these formats.
Japanese companies must switch to CFE or SDE as soos as possible in their enthusiast or high end cameras.

lawny13: A feel that there is a bit of Bia against canon.

Like wedding photography "all day ergonomic comfort". Saying that the R is not? And for hybrid, video AF is better on the nikon? Ya compared to the panasonic, but not compared to DPAF on the canon. I mean if they gave it to the Nikon because the Card in the Z6 is arguably more robust and reliable than a single SD card sure. But not for ergonomics and video AF.

Same goes for life style. It is pointed out that they aren't a fan of the AF system in the nikon, yet it ends up on the list and not the canon. The only thing that the canon lags there in is the DR, but not by much. The advantage to the sony sensors are only in the 100-400 ISO range.

Panther fan, it is actually a lot easier to move AF point in EOS R than Nikon Z because with Z you have to use the joystick to move around hundreds of AF points. Touch screen is just easier. If you have thick gloves than it is a different case (but then I could not use the joystick on Z6 with thick gloves anyway).
I'd prefer touch screen and joystick together to move AF point. I think Panasonic S1 gives best of both worlds.

Except from tracking AF in video, S1 is the best of the bunch.

Reza S Moghadam: And there are other aspects,
1. On 5dm2 or even m3 I remember the launch price to be much less than MSRP. But On Eos R and rf lenses not.
2. In recent years nikon and some other brands officially increased prices. Even in DPR we had those news.
3. Maybe in some markets like USA you have to buy big store prices with gauranty but in many regions thw prices were much less. I bought my 24-104L for less than 600 USD and my 5dsr with less than 2500 USD. But now even in these markets we have msrp

Lens prices are adjusted every year due to inflation and exchange rate effects.

Alec: Evidently it takes a 80% drop in profit for the company to consider giving users an actually innovative product, as opposed to minimally viable.

Alphoid, and your A99 is a faster version of A900, and A900 is a more MP version of X, and X is a faster and more MP version of Y.
