fmian: Still not as much detail, clarity and depth as the Sigma Foveons at native ISO.
Not much improvement with Bayer sensors over the years. *yawn*

'no one captures depth and realism from a Bayer sensor at any ISO, native or otherwise, regardless of subject matter.'

Great since you said that I guess real photographers like yourself are the only ones who can capture depth and realism :)

I will give up photography now since I use a crappy Bayer sensor :(

^^ Yes you have a point there. My point was simply that there is a reason Sigma cameras sell so little compared to any of the big guys. Most people consider Sigma cameras to be a niche that doesn't interest them.

@absquatulate - I shoot a lot of landscapes. Never even once considered something as narrow in scope as a Merrill. Thought of Canon or Sony and so many others but never Merrill. If I were to even casually want to shoot sports I will need a whole new system just for that !

Hey if you love Foveon sensors good for you. Maybe one day they will come out from their small niche and sell to a greater audience. Right now they are best suited for some few photographers who have a very narrow specific need.

If you want detail you need to use the higher resolution sensors. Or choose xtrans.

SVCguy: Wow the D750 though much older is holding its own. I'm rethinking my plans on buying into Sony and may keep my Nikon gear. This really puts my camera gear acquisition plans into perspective. The benefits of ML is still not enough to justify switching. I know there is more to this than just picture quality, key here is video focus; but a few 100s extra for a good monitor with focus peaking is all that's needed. Not 1000s on new body, lens, flash...etc.

Sadly sensor tech has reached a plateau. Whatever little improvements are made are pretty small in real life.

Even the older A7 II which was reviled with its high iso performance I found not a lot of difference between that and the A7rII once I processed the photos properly. It was only in rare circumstances that the A7 II was just too noisy to work with.

hwzjerry: Please make a 50-100mm f/2 full frame to complete the ultimate wedding duo with the 24-35mm f/2. Imagine 24, 35, 50, 85, 100mm at f2 speed without lens changes.

^^ Not if you shoot with 2 bodies

jwasturias: If Sigma were to make an e-mount Foveon camera, the sales of their cameras would surely improve. If only to be able to adapt all sorts of exotic lenses for low iso landscape work. Not sure if there are any legal or license issues. But I remember there was a Chinese manufacturer that created a mirrorless e-mount camera. So it seems possible.

IMO I think they created a m43 mount camera. I don't think there exists a non Sony E mount camera. It's possible that Sony doesn't allow anyone else to develop E mount cameras. Only E mount glass.

@ttrans88 - Leave him. He is a troll from what I can gauge. I regret wasting my time and effort trying to educate him.

He just parrots info what he read online and disregards actual photographers who shoot and use these cameras that he has read about online :P

He actually has the gall to use the word 'articulate' to describe his grammar be damned illogical sentence constructions :P

Trolls like him are best ignored and lets not waste time responding to him.

Ok let's see. For all your bluster I highly doubt you will ever buy this camera. I will though. And no I am not an arm chair critic. Unlike you I actually shoot for a living and I shoot with many cameras and systems in my job. Expect to see some usage from me in future while I'll expect you to remain with your same gear for a long time to come.

Ah there we go spoken like a true arm chair critic :)

Are you buying this camera ? Heck no ! You are only whining and complaining about something you read on the internet which makes you exactly an arm chair critic !

This camera has already been shipping for a week now and no reviewer or major publication has found any major fault in the photos produced by this camera that is easily replicable. If these issues are reported in future I am sure Sony will come up with a firmware that will fix it like they have released firmwares to fix issues in the past too :)

However currently those who have their hands on this camera have only praise for it. The only ones having a problem are people like you who aren't interested in this camera.

Please spare me your fake concern. Be more concerned that my second shooter uses a 6D mk 2 and I have to work with the horrible DR on that camera. Maybe one day he will switch to Sony and save me some headache :P

Peace !

Look all these so called aberrations are big issues for arm chair critics like you who will never use this camera. For professionals like me if they are a problem I will stop using the camera altogether if I find they are detrimental for my work. RIght now they seem to be occurring very rarely and in very specific scenarios.

I shoot weddings in India which means mostly night time affairs shooting in very hard artificial lighting and at high ISOs. So yes I need to push my RAW files very strongly which I why I never use Canon sensors since they suck at highlight recovery. The 5d Mk 4 is better in this regard but my second shooter who uses a 6D mk 2 it is a nightmare for me to work with his images.

I am someone who cares about IQ and so I never shoot JPEG. JPEG shooting is the lazy photographer who doesn't wish to take much effort in getting the best IQ from his/her camera. Iphones are best suited for such photographers.

@PhotoKozomos - Glad people here like it. I prefer simple normal English. So no point adding more to discuss with you :)

And I am buying this camera. Ill let you know how many of my customers complain about this blue flare and banding and how many photos are completely ruined by this like the millions of photos I have had ruined by RAW compression and other non issues that people who don't use the cameras like to point out. :P

mikeodial: I do think the sensor resolution of 42 versus 24mp is a significant difference in image quality for those who are printing big or doing landscape when comparing with the A7RII

Yes that's one of the key differences between the higher end A7rIII and this camera. Cause aside from the resolution most of the specs like af, video, features, battery life etc are the same. Aside from the resolution which is important to some there are a few differences like higher res screen and evf

Oh my goodness ! Reading your grammar gone to hell posts is hurting my head !

No point arguing with you when you are incapable of communicating in proper English.

And just to be fair all PDAF sensors give that banding effect in certain lighting conditions. Its easily fixable if one wants with a software and Dpreview themselves said its not really an issue in majority of photos.

I remember when the A7 II also had a so called banding issue but 70k shots and I haven't come across them once in any photo. And the compressed RAW issue where I haven't had a single photo where it was a big enough problem for me. All these are BIG issues for people for arm chair critics like yourself who have never used any of these cameras.

Anyways feel free to write some more crap in your weird ass way. You are either incapable or I believe unwilling to embrace proper English Grammar and for that I don't wish to respond to you anymore. Have a great day

OMG dude learn proper sentence construction ! My head is spinning trying to make some sense from your ramblings with no regard given to English grammar.

From what I can tell you seem to disregard the Dpreview AF test with the Canon 6D II. However DPreview has far more credibility than you I will choose to ignore your claim without any proof and conclude that the A7 III has better AF in all respects than the 6D mk 2 given that the A7r2 and A7r3 all aced the tracking test of Dpreview while the 6D mk 2 did worse than both of them.

Second you claim (again with ZERO supporting data) that Sony JPEGs are bad. They are not and I have shot JPEG at times with excellent results.

And if you are buying a $2000 camera to shoot JPEG then better to stick to your Iphones as you it means IQ isn't what you care about.

Sony AF tracking as demonstrated by Dpreview is very good now and 10 fps is with full AF tracking so all your nonsense about P&S cameras I will ignore.

And that banding which was reported was in an extremely small number of images. What you WILL notice is the much better DR and better low light performance in 99.99% of your photos compared to the 6D mk 2.

DPreview reviewed the 6D II and found tracking AF to be below average

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-6d-mark-ii-review/7

And of course the 6D has just one SD card slot. :)

@PhotoC - I hope you were joking when you made that comparison between the 6D Mk II and the A7 III ?

Let me fix that for you -

better AF for
stills? Much much better. Far larger spread of AF points
video? Again much better, the advantage is less but the A7 III AF coverage is still more than the 6D MK II
good light? ok (agreed)
low light? A7 III should be much better. The 6D MK II has just the central point which is -3EV the others are much less sensitive. Also the 6D mk II lacks an AF assist beam which will hobble its low light AF even further.
better video? yes
better fps? (depends) - Depends on what exactly ? 10 fps vs 6.5 fps or 4.5 fps with a much much smaller buffer ?
bigger buffer? but not better buffer (smaller mp image files helps a lot)
a new 24mp FF ... happens to be a better 24mp FF, yes

So to correct your statement 6D mk II has worse AF in stills & video with worse low light AF, slower fps with smaller buffer, MUCH worse IQ with slightly more resolution.

@tailings - The K-1 is the perfect example why focused cameras do poorly in the market nowadays. The K-1 with its superb IQ should be at the top of everyone's list if they want a FF camera below $2k. But it's not a successful model because that's not what the mass market wants as aside from IQ the rest of the stuff like AF and video is below average.

J A C S: The ISO improvement is not really an achievement. The A7II was really bad.

I nominate JACS for troll of the year! :)
