Too much excitement every time when there is a new camera body. Marketeers tell you that you need to have the latest camera, latest phone, the latest computer... All the pictures seen here can be easily done with a previous camera body. You don't need this UNLESS you don't own a A9 or A9II and you use the silent shutter a lot. For the rest: nothing new here. No need to work hard to spend a lot of money.

I'am not a fan of zoom lenses. It makes lazy photographers. That's what I learned at the academy of art, and I think it's true. Besides that I think really better glass came out last year. For example Sigma did a great job with the 105 art lens. That's a keeper.

Pretty amazing price. Almost twice the price of an EF 50/1.2 L

There are more Nikon users here, otherwise a Sony would win the competition because of innovation. New technology has the future.

LessMirrored19: Voted the Sony A9 ...
The A9 -proves- that a dedicated AF module and thus DSLR format in general is not needed to achieve blazing fast and accurate AF.
It's a far more important proof of concept than the a7riii

Agree, don't forget to mention that this is the only camera that can shoot silent in almost every condition without banding issues and rolling shutter.

On article Sony a7R Mark III review (1244 comments in total)

A great camera, i was able to test it one day. But for my core business (stage classical music) i need silent shooting. It has near the same level of banding with led light as the A7RII in silent mode. In that situation images are useless. Only the A9 performs well in that case, so be aware.

On article Gear of the Year 2017 - Dan's choice: Sony a9 (336 comments in total)

I'am renting this camera now before i decide to buy and i can say that it has every thing i wished a camera should have.
The biggest advantage for me is silent shooting under all conditions without black out in de viewfinder and the fast and accurate af, even with open lens (1.4) and dark situations. Nothing to complain, except the price.

vFunct: This camera puts to shame every mirrorless camera. Mirrorless is a dead-end technology for people that don't know how to take a good photo.

If you go to Cannes, the Oscars, Fashion Week, etc.. you will see that NO ONE uses a mirrorless camera. They are garbage.

Professionals use a real dSLR, instead of baby-mirrorless cameras. Leave the mirrorless for your kids, to teach them what a bad camera is.

O.k let me explain why mirrorless is an big advantage for me:

I shoot classical music, sitting in the orchestra taking pictures of a conductor during the concert. In older days (with drsl) i only could take pictures during moments of loud music, with a silly box around the camera to reduce the mirror swap. Now with mirrorless i can take pictures without making any noise even in quiet parts of the concert. The viewfinder is showing me the actual light as recorded by the sensor (light during a concert is very difficult). Taking pictures when focussing with the lcd screen is no option, the focus is very tiny, i need to shoot with open lens 2.0. I never ever have to look on the lcd to see if the immage is correct, i already seen it in the viewfinder. So mirrorless is a revolution for me i can o my job far better with that.

It depends on your profession what gear is right for you. I don't think mirrorless is dead-end. It's the start of new shooting experience.

Can not find one picture that could not be made with predecessors. It could be all a little bit better, smoother but i can't see it in the samples. These could have been made with every high end camera of the last years.
The manufacturers try to sell new camera's every couple of years with marketing arguments. Should i really need this camera? What are the real arguments?

woerd: Old wine in new bottles. Better wait for the new high end sony.

i'am not a sony fanboy. There is a lot i don't like about the Sony camera's, but it's the one of the only few that change shooting experience with high end camera's for now with new technology.

I don't like this. You Americans love weapons. I should not want to be associated with guns as photographer because there are to many victims of weapon regulation in your country.

On article Gear of the Year: Richard's choice - Fujifilm X-T2 (170 comments in total)

Bought this camera as second point and shoot camera next to Sony A7RII. It's a nice camera but the output of the Sony, if correctly pre-processed, blows the Fuji away. The dr is much thinner on the Fuji. Highlights are bleached out with high contrast and can not be recovered in lightroom.
Viewfinder of the Fuji is a little tiny and difficult to see if images are underexposured or not in default settings.
Focuspoint joystick is great even as the film presets.
Overall a nice camera but not a competitor for a full frame.

woerd: This sure will be a very good drsl body. Unfortunately the camera concept with mirror is becoming old fashion and chunky. I owned a number of full frame drsl bodies from Canon but i changed to Sony (A7RII) and i never wanna go back.
My opinion: unless you are an action shooter you better choose the Sony for it's new technologies and image quality.

The batteries costs nothing.
