Who actually makes the lens? We all know Pentax just slaps a badge and adds green to the barrel.

In reply to:

purist: So let's gather some cons.
Bad ergos.
Still bad color science.
Lower flippy screen resolution than competitors like Fuji wich is kinda big deal.
With price tag of 3.5K u can get fuji and 2 lenses and still get paid in 2020 for stills cause u wont shoot any events or weddings or any other paid work cause corona.

Fujis LOL

The only thing that overheats faster than the R5 is the XT4.

Noise and DR look similar to other competing sensors/bodies on the market (A7III, Z6).

Should be a big win for the RF system.

The only downside of the RF system now is the average price of the native non-adapted glass and the limited options. In a couple of years it should be a very complete mirrorless system.

Thoughts R Us: Of course it's a wonderful device and will please many. But what I find most interesting is that LIDAR camera. Fascinating stuff. Definitely enables far better AR applications, and I imagine it will help with other computational photography applications, esp. once it's in an iPhone.

But one interesting thing I've read about LIDAR for dedicated cameras is that it could be used to improve AF. And in particular, I've read speculation that Panasonic might use LIDAR with their DFD to make it far more potent and catapult it ahead of everyone. Now wouldn't that be something...

Here's an article explaining a bit more about it, and how there is an add on that can be used with the Blackmagic camera using LIDAR...

Reactive: As a serious question, what type of person/company will buy this camera?

@cdembrey by posting your the latter 不 self burns are so rare and juicy

Whats the point of this product?
Who actually buys Leica for the IQ?
You buy Leica to flex and take pictures of your Leica, just get a Leica M.

In reply to:

rbach44: Cant wait to see the comments calling on the death of the pro SLR. Cant wait to see how many mirrorless cameras will NOT be in use at the next Olympics.

These cameras are for real pros, not the spec sheet warrior/blogger types. Im sure itll sell wonderfully.

This is a flawed argument. The 50 lucky/older Olympic photographers have the gear that work for them, they arent going to all of a sudden switch due to their lens investment and comfort level.

The real test is sales and market share. Unfortunately its nearly impossible to break these things down to see exactly how well a specific camera is doing. I suppose one would have to have multiple reliable sources with in big retailers to provide this information.

creepy.sol: Seems like a brand popularity contest, no?

Good brands gain more shooters/buyers and therefore win more votes... SHOCKING lol

AnOpticalView: Clear evidence of both the managers of this site being Sony biased and the readers principally Sony users.
A noticeable absence of the very best mirror cameras can you guess which?
Anyway clearly the best camera has to be medium format not a toy town DX. Some FX are challengers but missing?
I love these fake biased fun surveys that steer the users they proliferate on the internet.

Also assuming your correct and the site is primarily Sony shooters, how did this even happen? Both Canon and Nikon had decades of experience and a head start????

You would think that but when looking at the prime lens and zoom lens category, Canon won both. If it was purely Sony fanboys pushing ratings up then Sony should have swept everything (but they didnt).

Hands down A7RIV and GFX100. I would include XPro 3 but instead picture the you were the chosen one meme in its place.

Fergus Ferguson: Does this thing have a red dot on it? For $2,700 it probably should have a few of them. When Canon management said they were looking for maximum profit recovery through RF lenses it would appear that they weren't joking.

Same price as other competing 70-200 2.8.

This lens alone has me waiting for a better RF body.

dickgillberg: For me it's Leica M10P, not just because my own satisfaction and light gear to carry but it also have the quality that's needed for just any landscape photography. Sonys ergonomics is, for me, a joke. And I've had a A7r and A7r2, don't think A7r4 is much different.

Leica user talking about ergonomics lmao. Leica ergonomics are the same thing as holding a brick.

GrapeJam: How this camera won over the GFX 100 for both portraiture and especially landscape just boggles my mind....

GFX100 is the best but the lens options are pretty slim. You have one 18mm equiv prime with pretty bad flaring.

Same generation as the XT3 but with half the features!
Truly a hipster camera for the poor hipster that cant swing a Leica.

Thats a real nice Panasonic. Dont fool yourselves into believing plebs can realistically afford a real Leica or real Leica glass.
