tinternaut: Oh, they still use Synergy. Didn't they get the memo about that being so naughties? Either way, I'd avoid standing on the clear plastic sheeting, in the middle of the boss's office, if I worked for Nikon.

Japanese are very clean. They don't spill much blood

Robert Holloway: I find DP Review's comments section increasingly depressing and useless. Endless people with no interest in a product pouring venom on every post. I won't be buying these lenses, but what fascinates me is to check the gear owned section of these critics.

People criticize the lack of lenses for Sony and the pick faults with every lens released.

I'm not sure if it's fear based (they are killing my brand) or simple ignorance. Today, none of them have used these lenses of seen the results.

Maybe that's what DP Review has become - a forum for people to desperately defend their positions by offering nothing more than scorn and venom on every new initiative in a dying industry (that's right, phones are the enemy) . Very sad

Rob

You sure it is just DPReview and not western civilization in general? What do you see on TV, YouTube and tech sites? Daily political bickering. Thespian, comedian, talking heads on TV, tech writers all telling you who to vote for and students don't stay in class but march down streets demanding things they don't understand.

Love those old industrial photos but can you imagine the amount of propaganda being printed.

fuego6: Sales of this will be brisk - 2 units sold for 2018!

Why you buy it? You buy it because there are people like Karroly that worships self proclaimed pro and people with money. They are the same type of people that joined country clubs hoping to run into Bernie Madoff so they can invest with him.

Peiasdf: Reads more like damage control than anything. Explaining adding V-Log would increase MSRP of camera not because it actually increase cost but because some people are willing to pay extra for it.

The talk of doubling market share is also nonsense. Panasonic's share of EVIL/mirrorless have been on a steady declining of the past few years due to ever stronger competition from SONY and Fuji and Olympus switching to SONY sensor.

@Revenant
You sell for less than maximum what people willing to pay to give perception of value. GH5 is the value offering comparing with E-M1 II but SONY and Fuji still have GH5 beat when it comes to some of the video side of things and all the still side.

StephanBG: It totally makes sense to put Lumix cameras into consumer products, hopefully this means more exposure in shops and much more marketing. But consumer division should have better deals and contacts to shops and larger marketing budget.

When was the last time you see Panasonic anything in shop?

Why is lens IS affecting camera sequential shooting performance in the first place? Camera wait for IS to freeze before taking the shot? Wouldn't that defeats the purpose of IS in the first place?

mpgxsvcd: Is the review really only 2 pages? Is there no conclusion page for it?

Wish there is still a section that shows AF point coverage and VF size comparison

I hate the political divide and the game both sides are playing.

Peiasdf: I think the most amazing thing is SONY hired so many people to run and jump for reviewers to demonstrate their flagship and latest tech while Olympus fly people out to Iceland to shoot snow and gray sky using E-M1 II

Because a bunch of amateur athletes just decide to run around and jump around together at the commend of SONY reps and they all forgo signing a release. Yes, that's how it works in real life.

TBLF: Okay, I admit it, I watch Kai's antics on YouTube. Yes, he is a nutter, but a good laugh & surprisingly, watching Kai attend a Sony mock sporting photo shoot w/ the A9 was prolly worth more than most written reviews. The one thing I took away was the camera is FAST & even a goofball like Kai can get a good amount of keepers 1st try.
All the talk about defining a Pro camera is comical. It is just a tool. Most Pro's just need to get a couple of keeper shots from an event. Having a bin full of 400 identical split second before & after shots doesn't really do much other than make choosing the right shot to submit more painful to do.
Once a reasonable performance level is reached, I'd still put more value on SUPPORT than new gizmos. Like, If Sony has a booth at the Olympics & is ready & willing to give onsite support, spare body’s, lenses, demo units to play with, etc, then they are stepping up. Competition is good for the consumer, even if it just keeps C&N from getting complacent.

My feeling is DigitalRev's budget for the show have gone down from "golden" era years before Kai left and that;s why you no longer see models, Barry, crazy sets during the later years of the show.

They have the beautiful Hannah Scott but she returned to Australia and Warren and Ian cannot carry the show.

jackspra: Would be interesting hear from someone who is going to or thinking of switching from another brand.To early now.

@photenth
That's a lot of absolute statements about a camera that haven't been fully tested

Or just take apart an old Canon S90 and put it back. Teaches more about modern camera and better pictures too.

Still not gonna stop Richard Prince from "improve" on their image.

steelhead3: This could be Nikon's last gasp to stay in business.

Japanese employees spend too much time being formal at work and drink after work they don't have time to rest.

Everybody smells blood and is circling Nikon.
