On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1228 comments in total)
In reply to:

Geekapoo: Sony won't address the issues raised in this article via a firmware upgrade..their approach to improvements is to release a next generation version of the camera.

PAntunes, Sony didn't have a choice with the A7II firmware upgrade..the A7 AF was mediocre and the biggest complaint with the newly released A7II again focused on AF as a big issue.

CarpentersEye: Besides the fact I believe APS-C is the best overall potential value (with great performance) I did not miss how Panasonic (like others) is just splitting up what a great total benefits, photographers camera COULD be.

Shake it like a polaroid picture CarpentersEye!

As single articles, these company-centric stories are interesting. That you've covered most of the top companies in just a few days...fascinating. Thx for this content. Good stuff..

Geekapoo: "The new 70-200mm F4 promises high quality, without the size and weight that we generally associate with faster F2.8 telezooms"

???

Canon and Nikon did that years ago..

The Tamron is cheaper than new Canon or Nikon 70-200 f4 lenses however the good news is that there are many "like new" and excellent condition used lenses (plus occasionally refurbs). The Nikon and Canon lenses are excellent..Tamron should have picked a different lens than the 70-200 f4 as the competition is very strong

Akgbkd: a7iii+28-75mm is perfect all round combo.

Cannot speak for you, but I'd miss the 24-27mm! A non-starter for me.

entoman: Most of these shots are very average and not IMHO worthy of world awards, but one image really stands out and for me is an easy winner - Klaus Lenzen's overhead shot of the swimmers is a truly compelling montage.

I agree..the swimmer shot stands out. I also add the picture of the elderly lady walking the dog..nice street shot.

OK Canon and Nikon, bring it on. Sony and other companies, let's see your next gen cameras as well. May the "best" company win..while all of us win as a result of the product and technology advances.

Great pics that make it difficult to argue that the ZS200 isn't a good street camera. Well done.

I want Memistore in different colors so that it will match my camera color, a clothing color or my mood. 🤣

Maybe the company will turn it's focus on pinhole lenses for smartphones next. You too could own a pinhole lens (maybe even a professional one!).

Geekapoo: Just buy both from Amazon and return the one that comes in 2nd place before the refund "window" expires...tell 'em dpr sent you. 😁

Cripes...I should perhaps had made clearer I was joking (which was inferred by the smiley face). 10Q dpreview for all the information you provide about photography and for the well run, interactive site.

tbcass: Why the RX10iii and not the RX10iv?

My guess is that they are keying in on travel. The RX10 IV addresses focusing issues important for sports, bird photography, etc. The RX10 III is price-wise a better option for travel...the money saved can be used for err, ummm...more travel!

Miike Dougherty: Several years ago when Adobe's stock was in the 30's and they announced the subscription model, I figured that it wouldn't work and sold my shares after reading all the negative comments. It's now over 170. Oops

Think of the number of cameras you could have purchased with your stock gains 😎

Thinking about all that weight puts a damper on being excited about ownership.

In reply to:

Lee Jay: $1,700 for a fixed-lens camera. That's about three times what I'd pay, no matter how good it is.

Maybe I'll get a used one off ebay in a year or two.

Would you spend $1700 for a REALLY good f2.4 -4 24-600mm lens?
