RandyPD: For some reason, the Sony lens seem sharper with the sample image. Drag that magnifier box to the brick wall on the lower right. You can see the borders of the individual bricks clearly on the Sony but blurred on the Sigma. Is it the adapter?

In the lens comparison image, put the F stop to 5.6 and drag the box to the lower left corner. You can see a large difference in the lens performance there. As well on the lower right corner with the bricks and the Product Creation Sign. The Sigma clearly beats the Sony there.

Another incompetent manager. I like to see him use a wireless transfer from his camera to his MBP. But that is the reason I use a Windows laptop. It has a SD card reader built in. Things like that happen when you let managers run companies instead of engineers. See HP. Once it was a company run by engineers and successful. After managers took over it was pretty much over.

I think they should, man up, recall it and fix the hardware. Don't try to do in software what you need to do in hardware! Google can pay less or pay a lot more later. Sounds like another D600 or Note 7 disaster waiting to happen.

King of Song: This is a very frustrating camera release. On paper it's the best camera in the world, by far. On paper totally destroys the new Canon 5D IV.

The big problem no lenses. The new and great Sony G Master lenses are only in E mount. The new and phenomenal Zeiss Batis is only in E mount. Sigma Art, only Nikon and Canon. What's left old Minolta lenses, and not much else. Oh maybe just the Zeiss 135 1.8 but that's not enough to buy this body.

Why can't Sony do something about this?

There are many outstanding lenses available. The Zeiss 2.8 16-35ii, 2.8 24-70ii, 1.8 138, 1.4 85, the Sony 2.8 70-200G2, 70-400G2, Tamron 90mm macro, covers the basics.

I saw it on the Photokina and had an assistant take a picture of me. I have to say I was surprised at the good print for a camera with a small sensor that size.

When travelling to Rio you don't wear a watch, no jewelery and wear your simple clothes. Sorry to hear he lost all his gear.

My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica FD8x with 1.3MP and 3.5" floppy disc. I think it was early 2000. It did well when the sun was out and there was plenty of light available. It is amazing how digital photography has advanced in that relative short amount of time and what we are doing with it today.

I like to see a comparison to the Zeiss SAL2470Z2 and a comparable Canon and Nikon lens to see how competitive that new FE sens is.

Jintana: If I want to buy an FX or Full frame DSLR. I will make sure it is made in Japan. I've worked in Japan for few years and fully understand their quality culture. That's why you won't see this oil spots on Canon albeit the 6D is so so and 5DM3 is overpriced. Just check where your D750 or D600 is made? I guess for Nikon, only their bosses are Japanese but those folks making and checking their cameras had been sub-contracted to the 3rd world somewhere. Good luck!

Most Nikon cameras are made in Thailand.
It all came to surface when the floods hit in 2011

Peiasdf: So $2800 is right. Still too expensive. $2000~$2400 is much better

I think it is very competitively priced compared to the Nikon D800 and the Canon 5D Mark III.

Nikki's response was well done. You have to look at her intend to convey that there is work, resources, hardware and effort behind being a photographer. She has expenses just like everybody else and is doing a job like everybody else. Kudos to her for staying on the subject and letting bridezilla know the facts.
