pacnwhobbyist: It looks like a nice kit. I like the new kit lens too. The older 16-50 was an excellent optic but it made for kind of an unwieldy package when mounted on the XA bodies. I do agree that the 4K is a gimmick. Meant probably to 1-up the Canon EOS M100.

dual pixel, sure AF for both still and video better than fuji
but i don't like that poor IQ 15-45 kit

geepondy: As it doesn't use an X-trans sensor, is there a compelling reason to choose this camera over the similar priced offerings from the other big camera manufacturers?

I don't like X-trans too
many others
all stupid?

Everythingis1: Finally, an A5100!

U mean A5200?

now new A5200, Sony is giving up entry level to others

I guess is Sony won't be so stupid, despite low margin still lots of profit in entry level

smart won't buy for that terrible 16-50

boarderphreak: In case there was any doubt of the IQ... No worries. ;)

no 100 % crop

for IQ i believe the old 16-50 is better than power zoom
is that lens discontinued now?

can't buy with a kit for X-A5

Autriche78: Next up, we're going to start a thread complaining that apples don't taste like oranges, aren't as big as watermelons, and don't have that pretty yellow color that Bananas have. Sheesh.

Don't like it? Fine, move on.
Your phone can do it better? Good, use that then.
Want it? Buy it.

Yes, it's really that simple.

phone van do better is a ridiculous comment

it is convenient for sure, better IQ than a APS-C camera?

are u serious?

lens is key
remember all entry level mirrorless, only Fuji and Panasonic kit lens is decent
This is the most important factor especially if one has no lens of the system

Sony/Olympus kit especially bad, Canon 15-45 not much better

for camera alone the best entry level ,my pick is E-M 10 III
got the amazing in body IS similar to E-M1 II (only for still, no 4k)

but only for one if have other MFT lens
that 14-42z is as bad as Sony 16-50

actually if one find a good 16-50 than 14-42z is worst
I know of no good copy of 14-42z, all junk

Olympus is shameful for putting out the worst kit lens among all

Jefftan: finally mention something MFT people know long ago

if DOF is taken into account

MFT camera even without considering the best IS among all (Olympus) may have better low light than full frame

Ok that make sense
u are talking about A7S.
It is a specialized camera not regular full frame
regular full frame only 1 stop high ISO advantage compare with my A6500

Also I am only doing stills
I don't know if video is different in high ISO
with DXO PRIME GM5 for still is OK at ISO 6400 and as I said better than A6500 at ISO 12800

esco: For those that are arguing about how they need to fix LR's speed and that they owe you because you're on a subscription. . . they're still offering you the software you're paying for and it's called LR CC just as they're offering PS CC. LR Classic is now a legacy software.

For those whining about the subscription concept ($120 a yr) Im not sure if buying C1 for $300 is a way of sticking it to the man (adobe) , You're paying more for software that doesn't support all camera brands and many of you still need PS. . .it just doesn't make much sense imo. Using Luminar or Dark Table would make more sense as a sign of protest.

Phase One has no incentive to support their competition's image development as can be illustrated by their lack of Fuji support for the GF. It's a great piece of software but I didn't find it to be significantly faster, it's not as intuitive for my style of workflow and isn't as seamless when vollying back and forth with photoshop.

Also why other software company can survive selling software and not renting?

Only Adobe is a business and other software companies are charity?

why one can only rent and have no option to own a software make sense?
not update the software that u have purchased is OK as long as no major bug

but can't own the software and have to rent is not OK

I believe Adobe this time for real performance gain
this is a move to discourage people from using old standalone Lightroom

first no new auto
now no performance gain

RedFox88: So they fix their program after it goes pay per month. Greedy bastards.

"The CC versions work offline"

are u sure?
both Lightroom CC and Lightroom Class CC must work with internet connection
don't know if possible
very hard to steal now

Most important why other company don't need subscription
there software don't got stolen?

getochkn: So everyone wants to complain that you pay $125 a year for Lightroom and raves about Capture One in which you pay $300 for and you get free small upgrades but still have to shell out $119 for each major update, and they're on what version 11? Did you have to pay for those previous 10 upgrades at $119 a piece? What's that, 10 years of Lightroom?

a reasonable time period for major camera purchase is 3 years
if u paid upgrade price every 3 years god capture one or DXO

calculate how much u save compare with $10 month

u really believe subscription is because of stealing
many seem to believe and Adobe love it

tell me why all other software company can survive with thieve stealing and don't need subscription?

why don't they being much smaller and financially weak compare to Adobe don't go bankrupt?

my tip is to increase cache under "preference" to crazy level
10 times of default

will see big improvement in export

Sony full frame vs APS-C is 1 stop
I have A6500 and in ISO 12800 it is more noisy than my GM5 in ISO 6400
less than 1 stop gain in High ISO

1 stop above 12800 is only 25600
I don't know how u can take full frame to 102400

and i don't know what MFT u use
my 2014 GM5 ISO 6400 is better than my A6500 ISO 12800

also anyone think $10/month will be forever is so naive
it is an introductory price to get people warm up to the idea of subscription

soon will be $15/month, I predict

Ron Poelman: Premium hardware all round, eh ?
Call me when the the 4 cores and 8GB figures are in,
coz that's what the vast majority of their users will be on.

especially with laptop

8GB very common in laptop
I just buy a laptop, still 8GB in late 2017 cost US$1000
not super expensive but not cheap either

u don't even have to update if u don't buy new camera
Capture One is a mature product
version 10 and 11 is not much different

as long as your camera is support, u paid only once
first it is $270, 10% off coupon easy to find
in around Christmas time got 20% off, it is $240

This is exactly 2 years of subscription and it works FOREVER!!!!!
as long as u don't buy new camera and your camera is supported

Lightroom the moment u stop paid, the moment u lost the program
how's that compare in terms of value?
