In reply to:

King of Song: Actually I'm becoming a little frustrated and confused. I'm disappointed with Canon. I don't really like the Nikon F mount. The Sony E mount is half gadget half camera. Sony A mount??? At heart I'm a medium format guy, in the past I always used Rollei 6008. Medium format digital has not really been feasible until now.

Last year I almost bought the Pentax 645Z, but I hesitated because I didn't really like the lenses. This new Hasselblad X1D is truly gorgeous, but the lenses are going to be slow. This means for street photography you will need to use higher ISO's which may negate the benefits of the larger format? If that's the case, why spend so much more, lose speed and versatility, and gain weight, if there is no mage quality dividends?

Suddenly there is another alternative, the new Fuji GFX 50S. It has the potential for faster lenses due to the fact that it has a shutter. I will wait for DPR to test these two cameras side by side, before I make my final decision.

It'll be good in higher ISOs.

It has a proven sensor so it'll have great IQ. But what I really love is the design of the thing, especially the black one. And to think what kind of Hasselblad one could buy with roughly the same money a few years back.

dwl017: Sorry but I still don't see anything worth getting excited over, With mirrorless cams affordable as they are or even a high-end point and shoot I just don't get all the excitement. Have we become that soft and lazy as a society that we are not able to carry a pocket camera like a Sony RX 100?

"...the quality of a Sony Rx100 is not sooo much better than the quality of a Galaxy S7 or a Nexus 5x/6p...".
Lol, not even close.

Another garbage. Do all these phone add ons actually sell? DxO, Sony and whatever else there is around. I only see people attaching protective cases in their phones. I feel the best solution to a good camera and phone combination was that Panasonic phone with the big sensor. But I fell that one didn't fly of the selves either.

KonstantinosK: 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.

Using Live View in a DSLR sort of abolishes the need for a DSLR in the first place. We're looking for a big, nice, bright OVF and then start using Live View to get accurate focus? I hate it when I have to use Live View in my DSLR when I want to make sure I'll get good focus. That double slap always gives me the impression that I'll get a blurry image.

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.

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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".
