quietrich: Really guys, have any of us taken dxomark seriously these past few years? A completely random criteria set made plausible by graphs and graphics. Personally I haven't 'visited' their site for years; because they have nothing to say in terms of current technology.

dxomark copped out long ago. We all know that.

Used to goto their site regularly, but think I've been back maybe 6 times in 3 years. With no actual photos to sample against figures, graphs, charts or what ever are meaningless. And as they just can't handle Fuji X trans I doubt I'll ever use them.

wil eelsing: Like the idea, it looks like a nice toy for those who are into 'lifestyle choices'. However, since a belong to stumbling-through-life squad, I'd rather wish they had invested in resurrecting the Silicon Film's EFS-1 concept, a digital cartridge that was supposed to fit into a analogue 35mm camera.

I really liked that idea, has anyone tried a quickstarter campaign since they gave up?

xiao_xiang: The anti-canikon crowd are alive and well in this forum!

Can't we all just get along?

A Nikon exec states some unpalatable, but true, facts and you go all hyperventilating. Even if they are a little wobbly in the truth department, he is there to present his company.

Boy these Fuji/Olympus/newly-hip brand supporters are obnoxious and one-eyed. Nikon is dying a slow death, so just be happy with that, ok, and leave out the venom.

I for one am excited to see what they come up with. I just wish they would hurry up about it!! I am a FF shooter, so that's what I want to see... But I might have to go Sony for my next purchase....

@xiao_xiang""Boy these Fuji/Olympus/newly-hip brand supporters are obnoxious and one-eyed"

What on Earth are you talking about? Fuji and Olympus are NOT "newly-hip brand supporters". They have been around a long time. If anything NIKON is the brand that many choose on name alone.

I shoot Fuji X system because it gives the best combination of High Quality images with high quality lenses, that are lighter to use and carry. I also find them more enjoyable as they are better designed ergonomically.

I hope Nikon does bring out a full-frame mirrorless but they will still suffer the issue of needing larger lenses which normally makes them bulkier and heavier and personally this defeats the main purpose of such systems.

In reply to:

LFPCPH: Isn't Nikon the only manufacturer that supports APS-C lenses on their fullframe cameras ? Or am I wrong ? Does Sony support old APS-C lenses on the A7 line ?

My point is that a fullframe mirrorless system that supports both APS-C and fullframe lenses will have broader appeal than systems like the Canon M or Fujifilm.

Nope, Pentax does on the K1 (yes they only make the one FF, but still good to know) :D

New Top Gear in the UK did a "safari" of sorts using suv rear parking cameras.

Matt1645f4: Whats the odds of them using Fuji's X mount?

Fuji won't abandon X mount, far more likely Nikon will go X mount. And Fuji only used Nikon F as they were rebranding nikon cameras.

Where's the owned it button?

Is it News, a Review or consumer advice? None of the above!! Which is where DPR is heading if it doesn't start doing what says in its title!!

Brilliant article DPR , Been playing with this idea of take anywhere camera. Current thinking is a Panasonic GX80 with 17mm f1.8 lens. View finder practical focal length for parties, landscape with odd street shots, IBIS and all very affordable. Plus usb charging.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (506 comments in total)
In reply to:

I own 128 cameras: How can people claim to own the A9 or use to own the A9, when it's months from being released. I once was on a list that got me Nikon's 7-8 days early, and once a deal with SONY where I had the camera 30 days only, not a production model, not production menus. But there is no way, world wide, 30 people have had this camera. Anyone who even saw it at a trade show have signed an NDA, which means they can't even say the owned or own it.

Frustrating.

I've got at picture of a Sony A7RIII i mocked up on Photoshop will that count when they eventually launch it?

I've made the same comment many times unless all the Beta testers are on her all day instead of taking photos. :-)

Well after the NX mount debacle who in their right mind will trust Samsung Cameras again.

At least it's not a loo camera to monitor your bowl movements (may be next year dpreview).
