Pixels have always had a button for camera on from any state.

This case needs a much bigger hump, like a Sony A7 for a comfortable grip and it would allow for a large battery.

BobSac: Guys, I've paid for all your stuff (FilmicPro, Log etc.) on a number of devices but draw the line at subscription.

Don't be foolish and create haters out of currently happy customers.

I left Adobe years ago for the same reason.

Yeah, I'll stick with my class leading default Pixel 4 app.

Rode is king of bang for buck products.

Take my money.

8K sensor with the colour science and bit rate of a potato and a lens that could barely resolve 4K properly?

Late android updates too?

Where do I sign?

supersteelman: The 24-70 art is the lens least worthy of the "art" title

I love art lenses but this one is not great

Wish they would release a 50-85 f/2 art to go with my 24-35 f/2 art. Perfect duo for weddings, get some flexibility and have prime level IQ

Pay up.

nonuniform: Oh my god the comments are hilarious. You know what I love about you people, you're so serious about something as meaningless as cameras. I mean, we're facing planetary extinction, and this is what you rant about.

Lighten up, Francis.

What would you like us to do instead then?

You know, to avoid the planetary extinction that has been a threat for 200,000 years at least.

John C Tharp: I'm mostly surprised by the lack of stabilization, after Sigma (and Tamron) added it to their last DSLR versions.

Tamron went for compact with their FE lens, while Sigma went larger with a wider focal length -- OS would have been something to differentiate from Tamron and Sony both.

Sorry, I should say I base the sigma reliability on the fact I have dozens of them and some of those are almost 15 years old, not a single issue.

I've bought three Tamrons, two stopped focusing ~2 years in.

XeroJay: Sigma is really on a great path lately. Sure, many complain about the size of some of the art lenses, but ignoring that, they are really giving us the best they can. Their lenses are consistently in the absolute top-tier optically, yet their prices are beyond great. On top of that, their build quality is better than most lenses nowadays (likely where the weight comes from) and they even give us Canadians a 7 year warranty.
The coup de grace: these lenses work flawlessly on the E-mount.

And they AF great and are reliable for years and years with abuse.

I can't believe how fast my 105 Art focuses on my A9 considering how big those elements must be.

The thing follows the fastest subjects so well.

Since that 4mm at the wider end helps me a lot, I'll be getting the Sigma.

Also, it's a Sigma, so it'll be better long term (reliability). The Tamron felt cheap.

Why am I not surprised?

BobSac: Either this is a political post or a hipster post.
Nothing about it is good, very unclassy DPR.

I'm not American and the outcome of this event won't impact me one bit, so that statement about my views doesn't hold water.

From my outsiders perspective, it's very clear that the intent of this article (at least the title as I didn't read it) was most likely political in nature.

Or, as I said, it has something to do with the fact he's using an old camera, which is silly, the thing is useless for that scenario.

Either way, it's a bad move imo.

Light Pilgrim: Have to say that I am very surprised not to see a 4K screen. Why they decided not to do it today? Weird. For me it is a NO GO, the rest is great though.

Except it has been for me for years on a much cheaper unit.

Yep, the ability to watch the 1080p output with the real estate for the rest of the stuff (timeline etc.) was a missed opportunity.

I've been enjoying an Asus with a 4K screen for many years and won't go back to less res.

I use either that or my A9.

That's your opinion.
4K is the same big step going from SD to HD was.

More detail is what most people want, most of the time, in any image.

Those are all 2012 issues.
Even 2017 phones have no issues capturing, editing and playing 4K60p.

The issue you have is budget.
Increasing it slightly will give you future proofing for the inevitable 12K era.

Fazal Majid: World's smallest interchangeable lens FF camera. The Sony RX1 series body is smaller.

https://camerasize.com/compare/#825,638

As mosc said, the RX1R isn't an ILC, so not comparable.
