hagmamad: Wow.
So much negativity here. And brand wars is roaring.
Come on guys, a camera maker had a stupid bug which they promptly fixed.

These trolls make it sound like fire fighters should be using napalm to fight fire since more trolling is the answer to trolling! :p

J A C S: I guess that flare and purple branches/sky can be counted as an artistic effect?

If I am not mistaken that is flare only .

Uhs-II memory is still so darn expensive. Wish it would drop by half so I can afford it :p

IamJF: Great site with real memory speed tests:

Used to be my favourite site but unfortunately they have stopped updating it since last year :(

On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1232 comments in total)
In reply to:

PerL: How is the ergonomics? Especially with some serious lenses? The Nikon DSLRs fits like a glove, you can tell that they are experts in that area when you handle one. The Sony looks to me as it would give you cramp with a large lens.

Everyone's choices are different. The Nikon and Canon full frame bodies are easier to hold with large lenses but I find them more fatiguing after a days shooting.

The Sony A7rII that I use isn't that great if I attach by 70-200mm f4 but if I hold the lens more its fine.

And when I use my 35mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.8 Batis prime lenses then the Sony system is far easier to use and shoot.

mbradich: Well, if the lighting equipment would be something to show off to anyone other than the fellow photogs, exclusive manufacturers could play the luxury card and for example release a different casing color collection every year. You know, like Leica does, or Apple for that matter. Unfortunately, the lights mostly stay in the confines of a studio and the masses anyway can’t tell an Elinchrom from a Godox...

High-end equipment manufacturers can’t compete with Chinese brands on the cost and the difference is so dramatic that most photographers will gladly sacrifice reliability (the major selling point of the brands like Elinchrom et al) since if the product breaks, they just go and buy the replacement, while still having a chunk of cash left over. Then a product with newer features will come out and then they can also upgrade the options. I got 3 Yongnuos for the 3/5 of a price of a Canon while really needing 1 or 2 for architecture shots, so I have a spare AND optional extra power.

After my expensive Sony branded flash broke I switched to godox flashes which cost a fraction for my work. One broke due to my carelessness but it doesn't hurt as much to change it.

Tiny minority? Zero people liked your initial post but 22 people so far liked the post that criticised your crazy way of posting. I still haven't bothered to read your first post as I refuse to indulge your reluctance to communicate in normal English that everyone can understand. Your current stubbornness to stick to your guns when people are telling you to change shows you in a very poor light given we are simply asking you to write in normal English.

Arca45Swiss: Sony seems to have too many models. Model lineup glut

The Leica system is the one that is incredibly confusing !

There is Leica M10, MP, Type 240, Type 262 and then some limited edition with incredibly obscene prices :P

I agree it can be confusing to some but the model lines are distinct. The A7 series is the base full frame model. Something like a Nikon d750 or a 6d mk 2. A7RIII is the their premium full frame camera with better build quality and high resolution sensor like the 5d mk 4 and D850.

The A9 is their flagship sports camera like the D5 and 1dx and finally the A7s is their video focused camera like the 1Dc and Panasonic GH5

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*

@fmian - Look stupid ridiculous statements like what you said don't deserve any serious response. :P

If that is truly what you believe then so be it :)

'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.

In reply to:

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.
