fillkay: There seem to be so many of us looking around for LR 6 replacements, wouldn't it be a good idea for DPR to run a proper comparison test of all the available alternatives?

Why are you still here then?

Herp Photos: M43 to Full Frame equivalency continued from below..
Consider trying to frame a head and shoulders portrait with these two setups:
1. Full frame camera and a 200mm F2.8 lens
2. M43 camera with this 200mm (400mm FOV equivalent lens.
You will have to move back from the subject a considerable amount to accomplish the same framing with the M43 setup. If you shot both portraits at F2.8, the light gathering capabilities from the lenses alone will be the same F2.8. Additionally, the increased distance between the 400mm equivalent lens and the photo subject to get the same framing is going to buy you back some bokeh if you really wanted to compare using this lens for the same portrait use case.

There is no denying the high iso capabilities of a full frame sensor in such a case roast the M43 sensor or that the Full frame has better bokeh and subject isolation at the exact same working distance but you shouldn't compare them at the same working distance to begin with.

Why would you use a 400mm lens to do a head and shoulders portrait? That's mental.

Dan51: An article like this shows how most people are just happy with their smartphones or an interchangeable lens camera that they already have.

As technology has improved so much and any camera from the last 10 years offers so many options, people are just not going to go into this level of technical expertise in order to see the difference between two cameras. People will just use what they already have, even pros.

Or just read an article like this one.

Lawn Lends: Touchpad AF, nice for lightweight lenses. But if there was only some way to put a remote wired touchpad on a grip attached to the tripod collar mount on a longer lens.

Sure, but not any of the other things you brought up.

That's different from what you suggested originally how?

Prognathous: My favorite RAW converter and my favorite set of plug-ins? Wonderful news and a great reason to consider upgrading (currently using v11) when they merge the two. Just make sure to keep the price reasonable.

"when they merge the two"

Looks like they already did. Nice.

Dr Blackjack: So USB-C or micro-B?

Why not both? Now we can charge while you tether.

It looks to maybe have both? It's got an extra port than the A7rII.

entoman: I think Nikon and Canon may have just died.

No, they haven't - but nor do they need to, and nor should you be wishing for it.

You can use phones/tablets/laptops to do this, but there is some lag. How much there is with this camera specifically is unknown.

straylightrun: Not a real upgrade. As an r series resolution body, they should have increased the resolution. Thats the entire point of the r line. This is more like an "a7r II mII" model. Sony's incremental upgrades are getting too ridiculous.

Did you just look at the resolution and stop there? There's no other explanation for your categorization of the upgrades in this as "incremental".

ShatteredSky: Sigh, interesting, as are similar lenses, but I would really appreciate a 18-50 ... 90 equiv. from any brand ... the 18-36 variants are too short for an everyday lens, and since using the NX12-24 24 equiv. is not wide enough. So, why again did Nikon cancel the DL 18-50 ?

The "… 90 equiv" part is a bit confusing. Are you looking for an 18-90 full frame?

This is full-frame 24-105mm. Is that so far off the 27-90 that you are looking for?

FredVasilescu: I can not notice this lens is heavier than Canon counterpart.
Where is the mirorless advantage?

No IBIS on the Canon.

I like the product. I like the design. I like the features. Price is OK. Prints are too small.

Franz Weber: This could be almost the perfect computer, but they forgot to implement a very important feature: antireflective coating of the display. I wouldn’t want to buy a display without anti reflective coating ever again. This is where the MacBooks shine

"Can you run Windows apps in the Mac OS, or by running Windows on your Mac?"

Both.

"and there's certainly nothing you can do on OS X that you couldn't on Windows"

I mainly agree, but there's still one thing. You can run Windows apps on Macs. You can't run Mac apps on Windows.

noisephotographer: Just noted something really strange:
The first image looks colorful in my Chrome browser on Android, but when I download the image it has muted colors in the Google Photos app...

Different color management in different apps.

De Fotoman: Vinyl sounds better than most digital audio.

It never was a mainstream topic.

cgarrard: I see this announcement as a first iteration of a unique idea. It should sell enough to fund the next project, hopefully one with a more serious camera (and sensor, etc).

Neat idea.

Leveraging a name with a heritage and photographers' sense of nostalgia is not unique. Period.
