kobakokh: to be honest i saw this video and i think Canon 6D2 is very bad camera for landscape photography, especially in that contrast scenes. Very small DR, you can see at this video very easy. If owner will use, for example Nikon D850 (or D810), Pentax K-1 (its even cheaper then this plastic Canon 6D2), he will understand what is a really good camera for landscape photography. Ooh, forgotten, also Sony 7R2 or 7R3 is also great camera for it. Also, much better to use some wide fix lenses, for example, Zeiss 25mm, Sigma 50mm Art, i mean the lenses with very low chromatic aberrations which is very important for post processing.

@ J A C S
Facts are that the images are processes such a way that show low DR and the video quality is a let down.
You seem like one of these persons that are always right. So will leave it at that.

@J A C S
Any of the images could be obtained showing limited DR by applying a specific S curve to increase the contrasts. Fact are that if that was intentional the blown out ares are no good showing poor grading skills. I have shot for many years Canon and I still do. I know well what such sensor can and cannot do.

1) The opening scene with the garage door opening shows poor DR
2) 0:24 poor DR
3) 0:55 blown out highlight in the clouds in a gently contrasty conditions
4) 1:19 poor DR
5) 1:57
6) 3:07 deep shadows and blown highlights same 3:10
8) 3:15 lost details in the clouds
9) 3:18 same
10) 3:50 no details in the water reflections
I stopped checking after that. Basically all the pictures that were not overcast. The video quality looks like from 2010. Mushy as hell.
If you want something in that budget, wait for next year A7III.

junk1: I surmise Nikon FF cameras still have more Nikon lenses available (than Sony has) and perhaps more 3rd party support Nikon than Sony?
And what about accessories - flashes?

@NexLupus
except you can mount on Sony virtually anything including Nikon lenses. Canon lenses will work on A9 and A7RIII almost as well as native.

Spectro: neither for me.
Still waiting on nikon milc or nikon dslr with canon's DPAF. My cameras are going enough to hold down IQ for still photos for years to come.

Now if milc AF is as good as canon for video that will get me to get a new camera (too many lenses for nikon to switch to canon).

I like my options. I prefer to shoot with dslr. I do 4-6 hours events so dslr battery wins. Just keep it on and when the moment happen take a click, my a7 had to turn on and off. Also for dslr you can shoot live view which is basically milc. Shoot live view with something like canon DPAF will give me 100% coverage if need be.

Size isn't an issues as most of my full frame lenses are equal or bigger then my A7 so D750 size is perfect handling size for long events.

even 2nd generation of A7 cameras battery is no good. With the newest generation (A9 and A7RIII) finally the battery life gap has been filled. I know for sure that the battery on my A9 is be better than on my 7DII. A9 with battery grip I am pretty sure will outdo my 1DX.

Your Welcome!

While comparative might make more sense with 2 items, I believe a superlative is NOT incorrect, just unnecessary from a logical point of view. However language is not math, it delivers emotions too. I can see delivering more drama and being more eye catching. That is why language is not just used for scientific journals, but poetry too.

just because it could not win the skepticism toward a notoriously opportunistic electronics manufacturer, which indeed vaporized as expected once realizing that there was not easy prey for flashy baits but a tough battle.

"I do 4-6 hours events so dslr "
uh? That is easy at A7RIII reach on a single battery. Also, you do not have to turn it off, both A7RIII and A9 have standby like DSLR with similar wake up time.
"Also for dslr you can shoot live view which is basically milc"
no it is not, on mirrorless you switch back and forth seamlessly and instantaneously, even the Canon with its nice Dual Pixel is pretty clunky by comparison, not to mention less then ideal ergo and FF you have to stick with the half crappy 6DII to get a flip screen.

@havoc315
indeed, I do have an A9 besides my A7RIII and A7RII... Both A7RIII and II have a much more usable silent shutter than the D850, which, realistically, just wanted to check the box me too.

armandino: This was such a tough one, so many and so different from each other! there should be categories of lenses! I picked the Sony 100/2.8 STF just because of being so distinctive. I was surprised to see that quite a few made such choice. I thought this lens was far less popular!

@Impulses
I have the 85/1.8 and I love that lens too! but then I would consider the Sigma 14mm first or even the Canon 85/1.4 IS

@havoc315
I agree on most of your points, definitely the lack of long lenses. There are many situations in sports and wild life when silent shutter matters, and generally that is when rolling shutter is irrelevant.

In my opinion this article is a fail, which is a pity, because I generally like DPR.
The article states the obvious, instead of bringing out what the real differences are.

Both cameras deliver similar performance and thus are similarly fit for similar purposes, which is, in fact, everything. However there are differences that should really be pointed out.
The D850 in my opinion is more fit for traditional style photographers, liking the conventional DSLR style of shooting. Likely for landscapes too for the functionalities, and the possible need of large telephoto lenses in sports/wildlife. I do feel that DPR emphasizes 3D tracking in sports far more than what sport photographers actually use.

The A7RIII is substantially more modular and flexible in its use, which is a huge fact for a camera supposed to be able to do everything really well, so basically it is the better choice if you do not have the above requirements.

@havoc315
I agree with the concept, but disagree on the breakdown:
Preferred D850:
for traditional style shooters. Wanting the large tough body with OVF.
Preferred A7RIII:
everyone else.
The Sport/wildlife advantage using 3D tracking is heavily Hyped by DPR. In this very article they state that if you stick with your AF cluster there is no difference, and that is what sport photographers use. However the A7RIII is far superior in live mode or silent mode, which adds to both sports and wildlife. Not to mention a slight advantage in fps if D850 uses the grip, becoming substantially bigger, and a clear advantage if no grip on the D850.

I really disagree on the form factor does not count: Sony is more of a modular shape it can be compact, lightweight, and non-intrusive, non-assuming if you want to. Shoot a Sony A7RIII with a 28/2.8, 55/1.8, 85/1.8 and you still have a very compact body. I find shooting with these primes extremely convenient. A7RIII allows you to shoot arm length both because of the weight and the liveview AF performance. I find this ability huge for sports/events

richard cohen: Sounds like the mirrorless equivalent to the D850..AF sounds like it is good but not as good, and write speeds not as good. Faster fps which is nice to have for wildlife and sports, but only if you can lock focus. Otherwise sounds at least as good as d850. Two fantastic cameras for us lucky consumers!

@richard cohen
Group focusing is available on Sony too and it works well there too. I think the major win for 3D tracking is when you lock your subject at the beginning and you let the camera follow it anywhere. By the time you start narrowing down the zone of AF tracking then I think the performance difference is pretty minimal. As a fact Sony AF lock on actually works really well too just not as reliable with a busy frame if the entire frame is selected (and for the A9 the AF covers indeed the entire frame)
