probert500: or get a used sony a7r3 or 2 and never look back.

Why buy a used one. Current A7R3 prices are close to the R6 price tag.

Wow I always thought that modifying a copyrighted photo was a infringement with just that. Now I learn that if you modify its no longer copyrighted? I wonder if I could apply that logic to some other stuff.

I'm sure China doesn't recognize Swedish patents either.

worldaccordingtojim: I am pleasantly surprised by the Z7, when it was announced with the EOS R I figured they would both be a total loss. The EOS R is worse than expected, the Z7 has been better. At least now there is some competition to push Sony forward.

You have to wonder if the A7R3 camera they tested with is also the same A7R3 that they did the tear down with. If so these results are completely invalid.

Oskar P: Deja vu'

I remember when the Sony SLT fans slammed all cameras because of their "poor" AF and "inferior" sensors. Sony fans patted each other on the back and bragged about how soon SLTs would dominate.

But sensible photographers knew Sony doesn't make cameras for real photographers. They lack decent support and accessories and their ergonomics and menus are pathetic.

SLTs were a massive failure.

Meanwhile Canon and Nikon kept building marketshare. Even with all the cries by Sony fans, Nikon and Canon hold a near 80% market share for ILCs (mirrorless, SLTs, DSLRs).

Canon learned long ago. There is no need to have the latest most expensive technologies. Instead the focus on being the best OVERALL system and supporting existing photographers (Canon replaces many accidentally damaged cameras in the US for free, while Sony lies about weather resistance and refuses to cameras damaged by weather).

Last response. The SLT's had no over heating problems. Over heating did not come the small e mount bodies. You didn't answer my quest have you ever used one or is all your comments just hear-say.

This is about the fact that Sony use the SLT to develop its technology. They made have bought stuff along the way to improve it but this what built Sony cameras.Like Nikon never borrowed technology. they have never innovated anything important. Minolta innovated most of the stuff we use. I'm not bashing Nikon that was never the intent. I like Nikon products. I still have a lot of Nikon glass I may go back one day. I was really hoping for the z 7 to be a camera for me. I want a smaller package. The camera isn't the deciding factor great photos. I'm just saying the SLT's were important for Sony. If you have never actually you should. It all the things that people can't live without now, accept it had it five years ago.Yes it wasn't super refined yet but it worked well.Things it had that " real photographers" laughed at and said no real camera would have that. EVF, focus peeking, DMF, Focus zoom,face recognition, facial registration, on sensor focusing. and I'm sure there was more.

As digital cameras became much more functional and affordable, photographers started transitioning to digital. Konica Minolta (which was later acquired by Sony) was the first to offer sensor stabilization in its Minolta DiMAGE A1 camera and it was a matter of time until other companies started adopting sensor-based image stabilization.

Minotla was first sony acquired they may bout something else I'm not going to research that. IBS started with Minolta and sony bought it soon after.

The A99 was the first to use on sensor focus point. It has 102 points. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-slt-a99/11

Minolta started IBS and sony bought it from them along with tha A mount. At least in dslr. I know minolta's IBS was part of the deal when Sony took over their mount.

Sony developed it's on sensor focusing on SLT's. It developed its hi res EVF's for SLT's. Focus peeking DMF and facedetection / face registration all on SLT's. SLT's were the first SLR type camera with one button video. SLT's were only a failure to close minded people who thought all this features were just garbage that sony added, with no real value. Who cares that they lost a third of a stop. Sony over came that by removing the translucent mirror, and the sony A's were born with all the technology from the SLT's. Nikon and Canon along with their fan boys laughed and said these will never be a threat to our DSLR's.?..

SLT's set the ground work for everything great in mirrorless cameras. Once minolta was out of the market some needed to step in and innovate. Nikon and Canon cernity wasn't going to. If you love your full frame mirrorless camera (any brand) you need to thank Sony. It was their out of the box thinking that got us here.

Art-Photography: The Sony crowd here knows that the "real" camera companies start to join the mirrorless market and make Sony to face what they saw already in the DSLR market again but this time in the Mirrorless segment.

So what happened to the great Sony DSLR's?

Oh i forgot to mention their "worlds best" AF cameras with some transparent mirrors that Nikon and Canon even can't compete? Every time Sony launches a camera it has something that "worlds best" and looks great on paper but in real world experience they always suck something and people realize it.

Sony was alone in the full frame mirrorless market but they have a real pro competitor which is a real optics and camera company for decades and after Canon will join the game, i give Sony 3-4 years to start consideration about Mirrorless like their DSLR's.

They just have the advantage of being first and the only brand in this segment for some years but still it is not a complete system like Nikon or Canon systems and will pay for that.

So why do other companies want to make a mirrorless anyway. They were laughing at sony while Sony was innervating and and they just kept pushing out their dinosaurs. I mean if sony is such junk why are they bothering to build their own.

There can be more than one great camera company.

kvken: Any cop who shoots someone who wasn't a threat should not be aloud to ever carry a gun again for any reason. Here is my take no one knows how they will react when they fear for there life. Once you prove how you will react and that reaction is to start shooting before you even know if the threat is real you should not have a gun anymore period. You have proven yourself unfit to use good judgment in a high pressure situation..

It's not and if it is please share your thoughts

Maybe A99 users will finally get a "performance improvement firmware update. Of course it will make a small buffer even smaller and I doubt they will waste their time for the A mount users anyway.

They can't give the Flagship A99 a firmware that fixes its problems(evf lag mostly). ' but can add features to a $600 camera. Thanks for nothing Sony!
