huyzer: I was interested until I saw the price.

You can search on eBay.com or elsewhere.

Here is one such plate - https://m.ebay.com/itm/Metal-Hand-Grip-Quick-Release-L-Plate-Bracket-For-Sony-A7RIII-A7III-A9-Camera/163132368782?hash=item25fb72678e%3Ag%3AZVkAAOSwQctbPGtg&_nkw=A7+III+L+plate&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m4084.l1313.TR10.TRC2.A0.H0.XA7+III.TRS0

To be honest it's actually in line with other premium brands like Really right stuff that also have a L plate for around $200. Kirk has a cheaper l plate for $140.

Honestly I bought a chinese one for $25 that works great.

Really? Did the name Gitzo not give you any indication of how much it would cost ? :P

1Dx4me: you have to realize the canon's 70-200 f4.0 II has one fluorite element which is mostly reserved for most expensive canon big whit primes, which produces an incredible sharp and contrasty shot and renders beautiful color saturation! i had one of the older f4.0 IS model of this lens and loved it bu i think my name is written on one the new ones :-) canon and probably Nikon have decades of experience in producing 70-200 lenses, Sony is only a "wanna be" new comer!

@Battersea - Point accepted ! Canon is going to launch a pro mirrorless system 4 years after Sony not 8 years.

Also it remains to be seen if Canon keeps the same EOS-M mount.

@1Dx4me - I was being deliberately facetious regarding the grumpy old men mainly because of your wannabe new comer statement

In reality I shoot weddings and events for a living and I have had the good fortune to use all 3 systems professionally . I have used the older 5d mk 3 extensively along with the D750 and both were fantastic cameras in their own right. The speed especially is something no Sony camera has managed to match till date.

That said I now feel personally my Sony A7 III is superior to the Canon 5d mk 4 and Nikon D750 is most areas when shooting weddings. And many of my colleagues have either shifted or admitted that Sony has now completely bridged the gap at least with regard wedding photography. Of course DSLRs won't be obsolete ! But the DSLRs are no longer superior.

Really ? So mirrorless and DSLRs are two different segments ? :P

So that means the Canon 5d mk 4 and A7rIII are two different segments and Canon has absolutely nothing to worry about the Sony A7 III and A7rIII since they belong to a totally different segment and anyone looking at buying the 5d mk 4 will never consider a Sony A7rIII since its a different segment :)

Somebody should inform Dpreview to never compare mirrorless and DSLR cameras since they are different segments

Battersea says I am wrong! Oh no! :D

Wait who is he and what wrong did I say? I guess even he doesn't know! :p

And comparing Ford mustang to a Ford truck is as ridiculous as saying that the Canon 1300d will spoil its 5d mk 4 sales. Totally different segments!

Yes because sports photography is the only genre of professional photography in the world and is an excellent yardstick to judge a vast genre like photography! :)

I mean probably 99.99% of pro photographers are sports photographers :D

Canon and Nikon are both releasing pro mirrorless systems that will directly compete with their own DSLR line up. That too 8 years after Sony ! Wonder why Canon and Nikon are willing to cannibalise their sales if DSLRs are the future ? :P

Yes Canon and Nikon are like 2 old grand dads. Old and slow ! :)

Sony is like the new kid on the block. Quick and fast ! :D

In reply to:

Ken Aisin: I like pretty much everything about the DSC RX100 VI as a travel camera except the price tag ($1200).

For just $48 more, I can pick up an Olympus EM5ii and 14-150mm lens as my travel combo. This combo is dust & splash proof too.

@CameraCarl - The thing is just 4 cm thick. You seriously telling me you can't fit 4 cm into your pants ?

A bit difficult to stuff that em5 with lens into your pocket though :p

milkod2001: Last time i cared about compact cameras was when they were at $300-400.
Thought smart phones have killed them altogether.

Now i see new model nothing new there, still tiny sensor in tiny body and price at decent APS-C DSLR camera $1200.
What is going on?

It's not a competitor. It's a do all camera in a highly compact package. A travel camera if you will. But probably the best performing one at its size point

XeroJay: I'm sorry... The update process happens through the connected camera body? WTH Sigma, why did I have to pay for a separate USB dock for my Art lenses?!

^^ Probably because outside of Japan the Canon mirrorless system is not selling too well

In reply to:

Wanderer23: Interested to see the result... much rather carry this around than my 24-70gm

So far its very comparable to the GM but AF seems to be a hit or miss pre firmware update. Will have to see what people report post the firmware update.

The GM has that useful 24mm though.

That's because Sony cameras allow you to update the firmware of lenses as well. However DSLR cameras don't have any lens firmware updating facility so you need something like the Sigma Dock

Torsten Hoff: Yet somehow Godox managed to get their website hosting account suspended today. I tried to go there for more information, but their site is down.

Thats quite sad a successful company like Godox can afford to let their site be down for so long.

In reply to:

Adam007: I have two of the non-pro AD600s. They are portable enough, but obviously it's nice to lighter options. This does not seem much smaller, however. I'm wondering how finely Godox can slice this pie. I don't think a 1-lb difference would be enough to talk me into buying even more Godox products, which I certainly like.

This could be cheaper than the AD600s and for those who don't need so much power a pair of AD400s could translate into a decent savings for new customers.

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: Good grief, they'll get me spending again. The AD200 and TT685 are so good, I'll have to carefully assess if I need this one too

Dont feel too bad. I spent $400 on a Sony F43AM flash and I used it professionally. It would overheat from time to time and I had to sit like a dodo doing nothing while its temperature went down after 3 minutes or so before I could start shooting again. Most embarrassing ! :P

And then after 2 years it just died. I gave it to Sony service and they said they can't repair it ! $400 down the drain. Ill try giving it to some unauthorised service shop but honestly the Godox V860 II is far cheaper and much superior to the Sony.

Agreed. Godox is so good I feel I am upgrading rather buying their cheaper flashes compared to oem flashes.

Kudos to the people posting here in the comments. This particular thread has some very witty and humourous comments that brightened up my rather dull day! :)

In reply to:

User3366538285: Thank you DP. However, there is no mention on how the lens works through its zoom range, physically: does it extend out?

All current 70-200mm type constant aperture zooms regardless of brand have internal zoom designs (lens doesn't change size when zooming) so this one is no different
