Micro adjustment, front focusing, back focusing, lens calibration, docks for doing so, software, lens align equipment... The accurate focusing is a problem that actually exist but all these solutions seem to me so boring and technical. (Yes, I calibrated my lenses for my DSLR). From what I read around and from my experience with friend's cameras the answer is: mirrorless.

I've used a lot a friend's 5Dii and veteran 5D. I never got to like the ergonomics, e.g. the placement of the rear dial and the double function of the buttons on top right. Both cameras felt wonderful in my hands until I had to change a setting.

woerd: This sure will be a very good drsl body. Unfortunately the camera concept with mirror is becoming old fashion and chunky. I owned a number of full frame drsl bodies from Canon but i changed to Sony (A7RII) and i never wanna go back.
My opinion: unless you are an action shooter you better choose the Sony for it's new technologies and image quality.

Thom Hogan's argues were to be expected, but they mostly apply to action shooters who have many lenses already and the DSLRs he mentions are top of the line D5, D500 etc. For most other users, especially those who are looking to buy mid range bodies like a d5500, mirrorless make a strong case for themselves especially for their focus accuracy and the lack of need to microadjust focus for each lens. Not all buyers go for top of the line DSLRs and focus microadjust can be found only on top of the line DSLRs.

Is Nikon doing something similar?

Gesture: Thanks. This is why so many photographers who did it for a living choose Nikon or Canon-the support network. What does Sony offer?

Great cameras.

In reply to:

KonstantinosK: That the autofocus would be less good than that of its peers was to be expected. Still, at this price point this is a hell of a camera. Very desirable.

There's difference between inadequate and inadequate in tracking. I use an older K-5 and the autofocus is perfectly adequate for my needs, which don't include tracking at all. I'm sure the K-1 is better than my K-5. For anyone who needs tracking there are plenty of better choices out there. Still, at this price point this is a hell of a camera.

Polacofede: 'the K-1 is well suited to serve enthusiast, landscape, still life and some studio photographers with outstanding image quality and a number of fantastic features that simply can't be matched at this price point'
what is considered still life? a turtle? a dead bird? If you dare to take a look at the forums you will see that it can do "life" still or not...

A dead bird is "still death".

Tical: Lenses are manufactured by Nittoh, sensor is manufactured by Sony, flash system is manufactured by Nikon, why the hell it is called a Hasselblad is beyond me.

Because it's Hasselblad's idea and investment? Outsourcing is found almost everywhere.

When did this came out? Interesting, to say the least. I must check DPR more often.

Yeah, I forgot about that one. Lunar was far silliest though.
