Good to see support from the film industry. I use Resolve, Premiere and FCP. None are perfect, but FCP does feel like pro-Sumer compared to the others. Many hit movies and tv shows have been made with FCP.

stadlereric: Boy all the oversight here is surprising. This camera solves problems only a Sony shooter would appreciate. Bigger grip, better build quality, good weather sealing and a pixel shift mode that accounts for movement. I hope the same people are complaining about how much more expensive Sony lenses are than Canon and not built as well.

If you care about those shortcomings, and aren't invested too heavily in a system this is a good camera for you. I'm willing to bet this body holds its value better than a Sony body does. $2,300 in losses on two bodies sucks.

Am I the only one who still wants a DSLR style camera but mirrorless? I miss the feel and button layout of my A77 and A99. I'd like to get my hands on a Z7 or S1R and see how they feel compared to my A7R's

Iron Eagle: Too much money. Period. Sony A7R IV will smoke this thing.

Would love to see an A7RIV smoke an S1R

In reply to:

bpatient: I wish that DPReview could offer a useful gallery of sample images, but this is another disappointment.

Anyone who hopes that a moderately-priced, compact, lightweight, general-purpose walk-around lens should be shown to be pin -sharp to the corners wide open is likely to be either disappointed or worse. This gallery seems to purposefully ignore many use cases.

Sigma has shown that it can produce excellent, sharp, and fast lenses if the company prioritizes those characteristics at the expense of size and weight. This lens represents an attempt to move in a different direction. Some people will like it.

Or worse?

In reply to:

panther fan: Sony E-mount really is the wide angle mount of choice at the moment. 5 great native zoom options:

Sony G 12-24 F4
Sigma 14-24 F2.8
Sony GM 16-35 F2.8
Sony Zeiss 16-35mm F4
Tamron 17-28 F2.8

And most of them use the short flange distance very well to decrease size/ weight and increase sharpness. Add to that the many many native wide angle primes both with and without AF, as well as the option to adapt all wide angle DSLR designs and you really have a great landscape and architecture camera.

On top of that the A7R IV comes right in time with probably the best FF sensor and increased weathersealing. So if it hasn't become already I bet E-mount will become the system of choice for most UWA shooting.

No love for the voigtlanger 21mm f1.4? Lol I'd take any one of their lenses such beautiful craftsmanship.

Nokiron: I think this whole press event can be summarized with exceptional amounts of "What do you think of that!?".

Why didn't Sony put this camera in the hands of reviewers? Is it not ready yet?

Link | Posted on Jul 16, 2019 at 15:30 UTC

isn't anyone nervous that Sony didn't put the camera in DPReview editors hands? I mean I get the impression the camera is not ready yet. Every other Sony announcement has sessions for photographers to test and post editorials about the new gear. hmm...

sirhawkeye64: If the body is $10,000 I can only imagine what the glass is going to cost.... that is assuming that those with the GF50s will need to upgrade to glass that can resolve 100+ MP.
Not to mention I wonder what the computing requirements are going to be to process a 100MP image. I mean editing a 50MP image requires a decent computer these days (at least, to keep a reasonable speed/workflow). (I can see a decent performance lag editing my 24MP images vs. my 45MP images).

The glass for the GFX system is some of the best I've used. Especially the 23mm

Don't mind the changes. Just not a very creative strategy to bring the masses to their platform. What's the incentive?

Majauskasson: Nasa publicity stunt. With all the satellites pointing all over the place Nasa can place itself in orbit with the moon in eclipse any time it wants and get clear space shots. Baffles over satellite lenses can get eclipse shots anytime. The eclipse happens constantly in relation to satellites and other points besides the odd "over the Earth" eclipses. Nasa keeps releasing these highly publicized events to keep the gullible masses hyped up. Using 1950's vintage planes is appropriate since the they are as old as the first young people who grew up during that first big lunar hoax, Apollo. Most people have figured out that great joke on humanity (Mars is the other one) but Nasa keeps going with these idiotic performances for the benefit of the remaining "true believers".

@c45 climate change is absolutely a FACT. What is an "opinion" is what is causing it.

What a great attitude to have...

No kidding. I'd rather have a terrible photo of the eclipse that I took than look at a great one someone else took. Uh just like every other photo I've taken
