OlyPent: Still wondering why these things are still a lot more expensive than standard TV screens, many of which are now 55" and 4k.

what Enzyme said, quality of TV panels is on the level of Ford Fusion, this is a Ford GT.

BarnET: Problem is mirrorless 1 inch provided no size benefit in bodies nor lenses compared to m43.

While the m43 sensor is twice the size. While Apsc is "only" +- 50% larger as M43.

And there we do see a significant difference in lens sizes.
Then the N1 target market was destroyed from below by 1 inch compacts.

@ tonywong

but with a name like that ... Nikon 1, they had to price it high ;) since it was number 1

Arastoo Vaziri: This is a real 'tour de force': it's the camera Sony made to please all gearheads whose only interest in photography is camera specs. It's the kind of consumer good made to tick all the boxes.

sorry, not going to take that trophy away from you, you can keep it.

Koenemans: Bravo Sony! In a little over 10 years they managed to get Canon and Nikon some serious headache...so with ±100years of camera-making experience, where are the 'revolution'-cameras from the latter companies?

@ Revenant
then why is Canon and Nikon market share is shrinking, and Sony market share is growing.

@fatdeeman
when something that you invest money in gets beaten and defeated, some people will feel insecure and try to crap on the winners parade.

This is true to everything in life. Best thing to do is not to worry, and let the insecure people make fools of themself.

spaghettii: Well well look what we got here! A typical overpriced Sony revolutionary announcement that never delivered to its hype. I still remember those first mirroless announcements from them and they released millions of body ever since....

LDunn1: It's really great seeing a manufacturer really being innovative and moving photo taking on like this, regardless on the name on the camera. I don't think the specs are really what I seek, but I'm impressed none the less. Well done Sony, I'm looking forward to DPR review now!

@ Teila Day
it almost seems like Canon and Nikon are "working together" to not out do each other, taking baby steps here and there. to keep technology at similar level.

And then the rebel Sony comes along and everytime they release a new product completely destroys their party.

Wu Jiaqiu: if only Nikon had put their tech from the Nikon 1 into a bigger sensor camera..... well done Sony, this sounds excellent

@sirhawkeye64
1 series is a dead end, the 1 inch sensor was mistake from start.

Nikon needs to go back to drawing board.

rz350: Very impressive. Canon and Nikon are so 20th century. One thing you cannot say about Sony is that their camera technology lags behind. Just their lens selection. Too bad they have to rely on Canon and metabones and Sigma for innovative lenses.
I wonder if Nikon had any inkling about this for Sony's future. As an owner of Nikon cameras, with this kind of announcement, it is hard to see a path forward for Nikon. Sorry, but Metabones had better come up with a way to couple Nikon lenses to Sony cameras.

@Wu Jiaqiu
Nikon didn't take mirrorless seriously when they picked the tiny 1inch sensor, going with a sensor that small was first indication that 1 series would fail miserably.

TheClueless: I bet it's still UHS-I in terms of write speeds lol

(...though admittedly it wouldn't be the embarrassment that the SL is in that respect)

@ TheClueless
you picked a great nickname

20FPS with 241Frames buffer at 24MP = we are talking about 6500MB (almost 6 and half gigabytes of data)

MikeFairbanks: This will be a game-changer in the TV and film industry where silence is a must for any unit still photographer. Plenty of resolution, silent shutter, full frame. Man, they need to make all of the Whitehouse press get on board with this (or anyone who covers any kind of press conference). It's hard to hear or concentrate with all the clicking.

Canon and Nikon: Your full-frame cameras are less expensive, but this one from Sony is going to be able to do anything. Mirrorless/fullframe/silent shutter. That is the future.

@ MikeFairbanks
A9 is to compete with D5, and 1DX, both are over $6000, so sony is $1500-2000 cheaper then Canon and Nikon.

So the price of one D5, or 1DX, you can buy A9 and almost buy a7RII and have highspeed professional camera and high mega pixel portrait/landscape camera.

@ Miki Nemeth, smart move, Canon is in a runt, they been behind the technology for years and years, their lenses are still good, but cameras really became stagnated.

I got rid of pretty much all my Canon stuff two years ago, best decision I ever made.

@ Wu Jiaqiu, those speeds are easy with a tiny sensor, nothing to write home about.

Olympus does 60FPS

pulling off 20FPS on full frame is a different story

oh, you mean the horrible Nikon 1 series with the tiny 1 inch sensor?

tko: And don't take photos near cliffs. Or on roads. Or of climbers, hikers, or flyers. Or in planes. In the ocean, or swimmers or surfers. Up on a roof. I mean, people die in those places. Actually, don't take photos at all. Much safer.

This just shows the herd mentality of the critics. One person dies doing something, and now no one can do it. It doesn't take that much brains to avoid a train on a train track. People cross the street all the time and do it SAFELY, same for train tracks. Getting hit by a 5000 pound car doing 45 MPH will get you just as dead as that train, with a lot less warning. You think because one person gets killed in a crosswalk none of us should use them?

I would much rather stand on a railroad track with a half mile visibility on either side, than cross a busy city street.

Jeeeeeeeeez. Use some common sense. Some people can get themselves killed by anything.

"I guess those are arcane and mystical survival talents."

yes they are, the snowflakes want their phones to warn them of incoming train.

Marty4650: Times really change.

Around 4 years ago DPreview did a story about "freight hoppers" and no one talked about how unsafe this practice was. The only thing discussed was the photographs themselves.

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/3451351380/photographer-turns-camera-on-teenage-freighthoppers

Today, whenever someone does something stupid, people feel compelled to lecture each other about it for the sake of public safety.

@ Marty, its about about the current snowflake generation....
