  • Nikon hit a home run with D850.
    DSLRs still dominate and there are only 2 major players (and Pentax).
    When they and Canon offer mirrorless versions of their FF cameras they will quickly dominate...

  • Free trips to Vegas where Sony pays for EVERYTHING has a lot to do with it too.
    Did everyone here think that DPR paid for that studio setup and models?
    Not to mention dinners, drinks, hotel...

  • It is really strange that Sony's cameras does so poorly compared to other cameras with 1 inch sensors. Even the old FZ1000 is noticeably better (and its images are underexposed - a big...

  • The RX10 IV is TERRIBLE in low light. With the smaller aperture zoom, this will be even more of a problem.

    The RX10 iv is a complete mess compared to the 80D and the FZ1000 at higher ISOs....

  • The RX10 iv in low light is pretty bad too. That small aperture means bad indoor shots without a flash.
    Look how terrible the RX10 cameras are compared to the FZ...

  • I've owned several RX10 cameras, it did not take long to learn that the latest suffered from the same issues and that there was little to no IQ improvement.
    Honestly if you prefer Sony, then the...

  • Only a troll would say the EM1/2 is $2000. It is $1699.
    And "balances well"? That was funny. It works superbly on the latest EM10, and one can get grips for the other bodies too.

  • I copied this from someone else so I don't know what you are talking about. And are you saying never PP with photoshop? No softening, no fixing corners? No fixing distortion? That is kind of stupid. ...
  • I had the RX10 4 for a week. It was no better than the FZ1000 for me, so I bought some new lenses instead. Lenses last more than a couple years. I know people with the original RX10 that have...

  • @Focus Shift Shooting

    Thanks for making my point. People like you want to replace their camera bodies. With the RX10 that means dumping the very expensive lens that can NEVER be used on a new...

  • @ particleman78
    It is obvious the FZ1000 images were under exposed and its sensor was at a disadvantage...
    You need to read what DPR says. The reason there was more time was because of less...

  • You are making my point.
    These cameras are so close is it impossible to say one has better IQ. In the examples above the FZ1000 looks better despite the disadvantage of being under exposed. But...

  • The lenses are actually pretty good.

    As the studio scene here shows, in many cases the RX10 IV is step down despite being triple the price.

    No one is going to notice a difference either way,...

  • Here is an extreme example someone posted a while back. I think it shows pretty well that focal length in many cases does not noticeably affect the outcome. And so if focal length doesn't make a ...
  • In the studio test here the FZ1000 still beats the RX10 IV at higher ISOs, and skin tones are noticeably better.
    The RX10 iV suffers from the PDAF stripes, so never shoot towards a bright light....

  • Upon further review...
    The FZ1000 has better IQ at higher ISOs. ....

  • @tbcass
    Well, you just used the classic troll argument.
    After all for both FF and Medium format, "Sensor is too small to give the best IQ"
    That is a troll argument and ignores 99% of what...

  • Replied in Well...
    Are you trying to claim these would provide the same IQ? The difference is 2 stops for IQ. But this is only "theoretical" and at many ISOs the difference in DR is less than what we would see with a ...
  • Fixed lens cameras are basically "throw away" cameras that can never be updated. You can never buy a wider a wider aperture lens, and never put the current lens on a new body. Why buy a $1200...

  • @tbcass

    Saying M43 sensors are too "small" then recommending a much smaller 1 inch sensor makes you look like troll. (especially since the M43 cameras have native F/0.95 and F/1.2 lenses)
    Lying...
