M43 is now a legacy format and dead and it was crap. Those cams are now unsellable.

Wild Light: The samples are pretty average. Infact, I would say there is no point in buying this new camera at all.

Sony needs to move on from all these 35mm cameras with no real increase in IQ and get moving on Medium Format before they turn into the Old Sony before and the A cameras are just another walkman.

Fuji is ahead of the game at this point.

Agree with "Wild". This is recycled, neutered garbage tech. Stictching 4 over amplified pics together does not increase IQ but IG (Image Gaudiness). FF is over - we want cheap MF.

wakaba: This is how the Nikon 850 should be. Quality design, MF Sensor and all japanese featuritis deleted. High ISO? Who cares when IQ at 64, 100 is extremely good. Overamplification was never a good idea. Usable 4k is missing. Pricewise - both companies fleecing customers. No cam is worth 9000$ or 3000$.

Because they are not.

wakaba: Excellent samples showing the overamplified bayer sensor. Its only better because Canon`s even worse. The Nikon DSP is old and slow. The cam lacks basic functionality I have on my phone but a lot of unusable japanese featuritis. I will wait for a Nikon MF mirrorless with working Wifi and vid control. Till this shows I buy Canon. Even though I prefer Nikon.

0 does not mean 0 amplification it means 0db amplification equals max bit-depth. Below that you give away IQ, above that you introduce "noise". Not cool but people buy that stuff anyways and DXO made a business with mediocrity.

Hardly any new cams recently. Industry retooling for new prods? Or clueless? Probably both.

What a halfassed monstrosity and gorry IQ to prove it. Can we now move on to MF sensors and usable video. This is just boring old tech just like the D850 with too many features.

Tiny sensor voltage needs to be amplified and equalized after you manually input presets. Thats your IQ. If you increase amplification above 0 - you introduce noise and decrease bit depth. Amplification gets cranked over the lifetime of the DSP. Canons garrish colors are one of the effects as are the washed out look of the high end Nikons.

Last full frame DSLR before MF ML bodies and lenses. Waiting for that.

wakaba: From my observations: Only fat people squeeze armored G-shocks around their wrists.

Correct observation. Fat.. Casio is for beginner gearwhores. Injectionmoulding a case and design small pcb with LCD in China costs 3$. 300$ G-shocks are a marketing abomination. My swiss watches do it better and look extremely good.

Michael Ma: Because of dxomark, all the cameras and lenses will eventually look the same, as if they were shot from a smartphone. We'll lose proprietary color science, lens rendering characteristics, light diffusion characteristics, all for the sake of achieving boring clinical sharpness.

The 50mm FF Nikon prime is such an aseptic example of an perceived overoptimisation. Numbers awesome and pics suck.

Manzur Fahim: So they made a pause on reviewing MF camera due to production bandwidth? How many MF camera were there with them so they had to pause them to keep the production in line? Lol. They could have easily tested the one MF camera at their hand, specially when it exceeded their 100 score. I don't buy the excuse.

Exactly. FF is finished and Canikon trying to milk a dead cow. I would not buy a FF cam anymore. MF mirrorerless are in the works everywhere. I just wait it out.

No better than previous phone...which was a turd. The relative lack of functionality or build quality makes it a very expensive low middle tier phone. Want a Red.

wakaba: 8bn people, one planet, 2 phone OS. This is not about choice or even which os ist better. Its about lack of choice and beeing lead by two companies Google and Apple sharing 100% marketshare. This is a duopoly and bad for all of us as can be seen by lack of quality and pricing going up.

The real story is that that those two corps need to be investigated for collusion and broken up.

@Canonkenn: I owned several win phones since the beginning. Usable in the beginning, very good functionality at the end. The app store was quite good but in the end the messenger would not run anymore and some key apps were not aviailable in usable form and I got essentially bricked by MS. Not cool. The Lenovo Android was a huge step back, the phone was crap. Happier now with cheap LG as a filler. Lets see if the new Google or Red will do the job. Its not fun shopping for phones. The concept is broken.

Its1080p internally. No real 4k. It does less than a Gopro Hero at 2.5x the price. Verdict: PoC

Nothing else to report?

Heavyhanded PR. Its a marginally better product than a D600 and slightly better than Canon. Price and capabilities are way out of line. 4k unusable.
