KrampusClaus: personally i had rather see a very very fast pixel shifting tech, one where shift could occur easily within a slowish but motion preventing 'shutter' speed.

less artifacts, much better color rendition, lots of advantages, especially on the higher mp sensors!

of course for cinema, a global shutter would nicely eliminate those ugly motion caused blurs, things moving OR during a pan and other movement types.

so keep up the work sony !

global shutter also eliminates the need of HSS for flashes, very convenient.

Mike CH: Some commentaries simply crack me up.

ML is all about compact size, being smaller and lighter and so. Until it suddenly isn’t.😂

I love humour. Yours seems so fall more under the category of sarcasm at best, I do not see many smiling here at your "humour". Just a hint...

Although amazing and well deserved, the statement is misleading in my opinion.

@Mike CH
you are welcome to check out the gear I own and my photography website to consolidate your opinion on my insecurities.
Btw you must have found groundwater by now ;-)
I generally tent to make posts based on constrictive observations and facts, I really did not bother in this tread, you are obviously a stirrup case with no intent of making constructive arguments (assuming that you are capable of that) so I lowered my standards to your level for the sake of amusement.

MunchmaQuchi: Why doesn't Sony just rebrand Nikon's D5 and 400mm 2.8 lens? It's the best combination out there.

I do not think so Nikon D5 has the poorest IQ at base ISO of any FF currently on the market (except for the 6DII as Canon did not want to make it feel lonely)

Focus Shift Shooting: Ban drones permanently.
It was a bad idea when drone photography began, and it will always be.

@Daviddmf
Plenty of private airports or smaller airports where it would not be that difficult.

a car can trespass at an airport and hit a plane on take off or landing.

@Daryl-G
I think many governments including US are taking already all the right steps and companies like DJI are doing a lot to make things even more under control of the authorities. Drone technology exists and easily accessible, as a society we can only accept such fact. No matter if we ban drones or we heavily regulate them, someone can build one on their own easily and be an ass with it.

Banning drones will be such a bad idea. Drones exist and will become just more powerful and useful. Bluntly banning them will make them only accessible to the reckless and extreme. Educating people in using them, making them easily trackable and hefty penalties to the transgressors is the way to go. Prohibition rarely works especially with highly desirable and easily accessible things.

miksto: Played a bit more. To clarify on crappy low light AF of A7RIII I reported earlier:
1) Eye AF gives up first. Requires really good contrast that may be absent in low light (even in good light it does not work on my cat).
2) Face detection starts to lie in low light. It finds the face and shows green box around the face making you believe it focused on the face. Only to find out later that it totally failed and focused on the background that is better lit (quite typical with all the Christmas decorations).
3) At some point in low light it starts hunting. Sometimes focuses. Sometimes does not. Sometimes even shows it focused even though with your naked eye even without focus assist you can see the entire frame is totally out of focus.
4) In some low light and low contrast scenes it never auto focuses.

What is more in cases 3 and 4 when Sony's AF becomes totally useless Nikon and Canon obtain focus accurately and instantly with no visible hunting.

Sony still cannot nail low light AF.

Again one more assertion from your side "Our experience is comparable based on your numbers" that show your statements are questionable. What are your numbers?

of course I am laying, if I am not there is a chance that you might be wrong, and that is absolutely unacceptable.
Again you look like you do not like to talk about the A9 at all because:
1) you have no experience with it
2) it will prove you wrong
I really doubt you have a similar experience as I do because you have no experience in using the A9. Do you have proof of having shot around 300K with an A7RII? How much is done in low light? how much with fast primes (faster than 2.0)? I have used 2 A7RII as primary cameras since its first release, honestly there are not very many people who have used a7RII as much as I have and hardly any in combination with an A9, again to the extent I did. The very reason I have used it so much is because it worked effectively for me, since it did not for you I seriously doubt you used as much because as you say, you do not trust it.

In reply to:

tbcass: Sony's own A99ii will do 12fps with continuous AF. Since they use the same sensor why is the A7RIII limited to 10fps. Is it because the A99ii has a dedicated PDAF sensor in addition to on sensor PDAF?

There could be many reasons, including marketing strategies. Ask Canon, they are especially good at that.

Triplet Perar: How this camera passes weather sealing test? Not so good, and that SHOULD have been tested by the DPR. Video with test results by the Imaging Resource:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7BG74w0gAw

since when DPR tests cameras Kai style?
Besides the test simply reinforces the already stated observation (which did not need actual testing) that the construction of the A7RIII is not the same as some of the competition.
The camera is clearly not designed to take hosing that way, is not rocket science, just read the manual.

"Let me disappoint you. AF-C does not solve the AF problems unlike your limited experience leads you to believe."
...mmm... let me think, I shot about 300K images with my A7RII, about the same with my A9. My guess about 2M with Canon pro bodies. Please define limited experience.
Just in line with the rest of your assertion, thank you.
You are clearly not disappointing me at all as I know EXACTLY what I get from my Sony and Canon bodies. And differently from you I do not miss my shots in low light with my Sony cameras. As a fact I yield more with them than with Canon EVEN in low light.

In reply to:

armandino: I had always noticed the focus issue when racking zooming on the 100-400 which I needed to treat as a semi-prime. I hope this is addressed now. Maybe also some of erratic AF when locking on?

Yes, I finally installed and confirmed the problem seem to be gone. I did not see the issue to be so pronounced with the 70-200GM

"The only thing you said is not to use AF-S which in itself is a crappy suggestion."
Clearly you have limited experience with Sony AF
