Sardonic G: Sigma Art lenses killed them!

I would take a Zeiss lens over any Sigma lens.

Matt_Anderson: Having been a Sony user for just a couple months, Nikon and Canon before that.
I have to say, the A7RIII has reinvigorated my excitement for the actual hardware of a camera system. Like when I got my first digital camera ( changing from film ).
The 24-105, 85 1.8, and 100-400 have been pleasant surprises.
The general speed increases the Sony A7RIII has over the A7RII are worth the upgrade ( menus, focus, chimping, etc.. ) I won't miss having to calibrate all of my Nikon lenses to each body...

@Matt_Anderson

works very well with MC-11

Sounds like what I did few years ago with Canon. After trying a7RII, all Canon gear went away.

Only 50L stayed, 50L works better on Sony then it ever did on Canon, never have to worry about micro adjustment, back or front focusing.

russbarnes: Canon fail to win anything in 2017. Sounds right to me.

@Marty4650

those "pros" at NFL sidelines and other similar events its nothing more then advertising, Canon sends out 100s of cameras out for free to pros as part of their "loaner" program, its free advertising for them.

Thats why you see so many of them, any camera for free is better then a camera you have to pay for.

Then you have clueless people watching sporting events, and see Canon plastered all over and buy Rebel kits from Sams club or Costco.

Quantity over quality.

FuhTeng: Come on Sony, pay someone to bash and smash and soak this and let's see what we find.

soak? camera is weatherproof, there is no modern DLSR that is waterproof.

Weatherproof does not equal waterproof.

In reply to:

MikeRan: Surprised there's no mention of that pesky AF Calibration required. I seem to recall a pretty substantial discussion about this in the conclusion of the D850 review. With so much resolution, AF Fine Tune calibration becomes critical on the D850. No mention of such a limitation on the A7RIII review because, of course, no AF Fine Tune is required since all AF sensing is on the image plane already. Perhaps it's a comment on the "Autofocus: People" page which already clearly is in Sony's favor. Still, probably would have been worth mentioning.

Its amazing how often this AF Fine Tune comes up in 3rd party lens talk, and DSLR forums, and equally amazing how rarely (never) it comes up in the Sony mirrorless forum.

This is issue that all DSLR suffer from.

Lenses that are horrible to calibrate on DSLR, don't have the same issues on mirrorless.

50L and 85L was troublesome to shoot on Canon, but on Sony i never worry about back or front focusing.

Father Bouvier: And Washington Post just determined that the iconic photo of a sailor kissing a nurse was in fact sexual harassment of a minor. They already found a few more women accusing the sailor, the photographer, and the camera manufacturer.

haha, sounds like Washington POS T

LiangMing: No surprise. I will say the No.1 will be D850 gallery.

possibly true, but only because D850 was released before a7rIII, if a7RIII was released before it would have more views.

webber15: Don't use the cloud in the first place I'd say...

Tech not all it's cracked up to be...

@webber15

cloud is nothing else then storing your stuff on someones computer and with ISP currently imposing more and more bandwidth restrictions, if you keep using the cloud it will be more and more difficult from getting out from it.

MPS Photographic: I have 40,000 images filling 392GB in HD space. Do I have any options in the new Lightroom to disable Cloud uploading of my images?

@graybalanced

edit you do in lightroom, can't be migrated to any other program because they are saved in adobe propitiatory formatting.

So when classic goes away, your only option will be going to the horrible adobe cloud editor, or re-doing all the edits in different software.

Knowing what adobe future holds (and its nothing good), its better to find a good alternative now, then keep digging yourself into deeper hole.

Slapstick Noir: Here is a specific case where the real IQ can't/shouldn't be measured on a tripod in a studio. The elephant in the room is the IBIS in the Sony cameras. D850 and 5DSR are on completely different planets just because the lack of it, despite the obvious high-megapixel common denominator. Just think about the ratio of shots taken>shots in focus>sharpness(?) with the Sony's IBIS, and how much IQ it would cost you to achieve the same with Nikon/Canon. May be not too much for many people but at the price Nikon/Canon are asking for... I'm sorry! Can't win me over.

@Yake

while its possible, its certainly easier to get sharper images with IBIS.
and if you don't believe that you are in denial.

end of story...

all of you do realize that classic will not be around forever.

They might keep it going for 2-3 years and then it will fade away.

Sony lenses already have higher resolution then Canon and Nikon lenses.

@noisephotographer

software like that has ZERO reason to touch system drivers.
maybe go buy new ketchup....
