The nose ring turns me off!

Is this the same Richard Butler who similarly changed his mind on this thread too?
"With the power of hindsight, I wish I'd not said that. I think I'd be right to say it about the latest generation of Sony cameras but I think I was being too positive about the progress that had been made in the a6000."

Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn`t it!

tangbunna: smartphone users are not pixelpeepers.

Pixel peeping has never been the least bit important but to a very limited few who have a specific need. It`s always been the image content that gets the attention , never the pixel quality.

Veducci: Way too expensive. For less than half the price the Sony A6000 with kit lens mops the floor with it .

Sony A6000 dpreview review : "The camera's color rendition is pretty pleasant - certainly on a par with Nikon and Canon, if perhaps not quite as punchy as Olympus and Fujifilm (both of which we rather like). This is helped by generally reliable white balance, meaning skin tones and skies are conveyed without any unpleasant tint."

In reply to:

(unknown member): Seems like consumers were also waiting for the announcements.

As so often stated for most typical users , digital cameras have for some time now been as good and some even better than most film cameras ever were.
What`s the sense of spending money on a newer model that isn`t significantly better than the one we already own?
Of course there are always exceptions and arguable reasons for some shooters to have the latest and greatest but the days of runaway digital camera sales are over.

Matsu: First? based on the pictures, I expect the most hand-holdable EVF-ILC to date.

Nikon is the most recognized name in photography so it is not at all unusual for most folks to be excited over this full frame digital mirrorless camera . I fully expect it to be exceptional.

$900 is NOT what I`d call a beginner or entry level class camera !
Way too costly for what it is.

In reply to:

Beckler8: For spaceflight where mass and volume are always critical, you would have thought they'd go mirrorless. Maybe they too realize that while a bit better than a7, the a9 still has bad ergonomics compared to DSLRs like this. I'm not knocking either system just saying sony's minimalist design in a *camera* of all things is absurd.

But initially it still has to be lifted off the ground.

The Nikon 1 S2 14MP sensor produces better images.
20 MP`s are an overload on a 1" sensor.

No, you are not being too pessimistic IMO.

In reply to:

wilsonlaidlaw: Bad decision from day one to use a 1" sensor. The movement today is for cameras to aim for the enthusiast market, who don't want to take photos with their phones. The P&S or small camera market is dying. For the current market, I feel a 1" sensor would be regarded as too small. Maybe today, even the micro 4/3rd's sensor is perceived as being at the bottom end of acceptable sensor size. The enthusiast market wants APS-C sensors or larger for interchangeable lens cameras.

You got it right !

In reply to:

straylightrun: What a strange article. I think the differences between the two models are quite obvious.

I`d never spend that kind of money on a Sony camera . Most folks I know still associate Sony name with Play Station like toys. . Can they ever live it down?

In reply to:

WACONimages: I like how this camera is designed. A bit like NAD's audio equipment. Industrial and clean design but with high techniques behind that.

Now I hope Sigma will concentrate on make pancake lenses. The Art line of their lenses is great, but pretty heavy & large for this new camera.

My god! Sigma camera keep getting uglier with each new model.

acidic: I will only buy a camera with this sensor if it features sensor shift technology. 250MP is sooo 2015. GP or bust.

Anyone still think film isn`t dead?

In reply to:

splendic: Hmmm... at base level ISO, shooting JPEG and RAW, the M3 actually looks sharper across the entire image.

I wonder if it's the chip or the some part of the engine creating this effect???

The lowly $300 XA1 blows the Sony out of the water.

There's no escape from the fact that in the minds of the majority of snapshooters a dslr means a professional quality camera with separate and top quality lenses capable of the best imagery possible .
Anything less is regarded and seen as amateur class to them although usually in their price range.
When they discover they can own a good dslr for less than some compacts they often choose the dslr regardless of it being an entry level . A dslr IS still a dslr, the ultimate camera to own. Canikon would be pretty dumb to even think of abandoning it`s cash cows.
