Funny photos of a great scientific adventure.

Congratulations to the Chinese science program for your achievement. Most of us are proud of what you have done.

Pretty impressive images and nice video. Not private enterprise but collective human effort. Far better.

It seems to be a extremely nice camera. Well done Sony!

A really happy A7iii owner ;)

taruaS: In Europe the A7iii is not such a bargain. Over here in France it sells for the equivalent of $2,700. In Germany it is even more expensive. Prices vary wildly across world markets. This buying guide is only relevant for those living in the US.

In Spain, body only, Amazon.es, sells it for 1835 euros (TAX included), so 1518 euros before taxes. Applying the current Euro to USA dollar ratio, that suppose 1722 $ (before 21% taxes).

Europe prices:

Canon RP, body + adapter = 1599 euros.
Sony A7II, body = 970 euros.

Canon prices are outrageous.

Body + adapter = 1600 euros in Europe (tax included).
Rather expensive. Not for me at this price. Considering
The change ratio dollar euro, 1300 - 1400 euros
would do it far far more atractive.

It’s a pity, but Sony is still preferable.

PostModernBloke: I spent a wonderful couple of years back in the 70s, travelling around Europe; met many great people and have fond memories of that time. Before “free movement” I had to show my passport at the borders – it was never a problem.

Every summer my family get together for BBQs in my garden, representing 3 major world religions and 4/5 nationalities. 30 people from all over the world enjoying each other’s company. I love our multinational society in the UK.

I voted to leave the EU (not Europe) – why? Because it has become an undemocratic, unaccountable, corrupt, capitalist plutocracy; holding onto power for the single purpose of implementing the ECB’s (European Central Bank) agenda of austerity on the poor of Europe. Our future will be in our hands.

I firmly believe that given the choice Italy, Greece and Spain would vote to leave. That’s why the EU is making this so difficult. And btw, Norway chose not to join – is that a “racist” country too?

Love & respect to all my European friends.

Believe me, It is almost impossible that spanish people vote to leave the EU. Something like that is, nowadays, near impossible. Why should we make a mistake like that? No way.

R_U_Q_R_U: I look forward to the day, not too far off, when I can get a Z7 on eBay for $2K.

Perhaps 2 to 3 years from now? It's easy to find A7R nowadays for less than this.

DiffractionLtd: They probably had their reasons, but no IBIS is ridiculous in this day.

The lens has optical stabilization (OIS, look into the camera specifications as published by DPR).

Quantum Scientist: Way overpriced. I think I'd save the thousand bucks and maybe put it towards the new Nikon . . . we'll see.

Better have a look to the (big) size of its lenses. Have you had a look to the size (and price) of its 50 1.8?.

Z6 and Z7 bodies are even bigger than Sony Alpha models!.

Yes, exactly as some Sony lenses for the E mount.

BlueBomberTurbo: Ugh, no tilt screen. The original LX100 was well up there on my list of P&Ss because of features vs price. But no LCD eliminated it quickly. Same with the II now. Glad I picked up a GX85 + 12-32 instead of waiting for this launch. Similar in size, but gains a tilt screen and bounceable flash, along with the usual ILC stuff.

https://camerasize.com/compact/#673.397,569,ha,t

And I guess I'm not affected by the field sequential EVF. I have no problem using it. A bit flat in contrast compared to OLED, but doesn't get in the way.

The 12-32 has less reach (64 vs 75mm) and luminosity than the Leica signed lens in the LX100-II. Yes, you can change the lens in the GX85, but then, things would be rather different.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: (Sigh)
- Field Sequential EVF
- No tilt LCD
- No ND filter
- No built-in flash

This is the result of adding a new sensor to a 4-year-old body. The Field Sequential EVF is a deal breaker for a $1000 camera. This must be the 6th time Panasonic ruined what's an interesting camera by using a cheap Evf.

I rather prefer the Field Sequential EVF in the old Pana GX7 (very good resolution, natural and vibrant colors), than other EVFs like the ones, in the Olympus EM10 series (lack of contrast, dull colors).

It seems like a nice upgrade for my GM5, though without interchangeable optics.

I much like the multiformat option and I will consider going for it if appreciate a better viewfinder than the rather poor in the GM5 , and if there are no problems (smearing, off center, etc.) in its optics.

Obviously, I find it to be a bit pricey, so I will wait a bit for a better price.

Great photos. Nice stories, plenty of humanity. Phone photography at its best.

HenryDJP: Panasonic it's your turn now. While I'm only one consumer with one opinion, I won't buy any future main cameras unless they are full frame....and for a "B" camera I might still go for an APS-C, but m4/3 sensors are just too small and sacrifice light sensitivity as well as such a large crop.

Nonsense. I clearly prefer my PEN-F than my A7II.

Jaythomasni: This is in line with they did with head phone jack on phone...a shake up tactic to give an impression that apple is doing something futuristic, stylish or special every time..but this was dumb..
SD is going to be the standard storage size for time to come....with micro SD fitting within....flash will go away.
they could easily make the reader more compact and flush design...with a sprung metal lid covering the opening otherwise looking flush to the chasis...lot of possibilities.

No, they are not.
