mferencz: The E mount is a never ending stream of options.

Samuel Dilworth is there any 50mm 1.8 that you'd say it is perfect?

Panasonic and Nikon also don't have aperture ring and are significantly bigger than the sony, But maybe a little bit sharper.

But if I was ok with the price, weight and size of the nikon/panasonic, I'd probably go with a samyang 50 1.4II for the sony.

whitelens: >>Canon's EOS R5 is perhaps the better stills/video camera,<<
There you have it. DPR thinks the almost 3 year old Canon R5 is perhaps a better camera than this new Sony.

The R5 is the best stills/video camera of those two. But if I wanted a stills/video camera, the A1 or the Z9 would be a much better choice than the R5.

And if I want a mostly stills camera, the A7RV is a much better camera than the R5.

The R5 is the best video camera on a stills oriented segment, but far from the best on a stills/video segment.

Is it still that expensive?

Who much is an 85 1.8 or a 35 1.8? How much is the Nikon 50 1.8?

Sure, it's not a $100 lens, but it doesn't feel like a $100 lens.

Could sony to a better lens today? Probably. Would it cost less? I'm not that sure.

Samuel Dilworth Why not the 55 1.8? Seems to be what you’re asking for.

runbei99: To each his own. Sports & wildlife: Canon R6 II. Landscape: Canon 5DSR. Street: Fujifilm X-E4. Did you know that the Fuji X-E2S now sells for - are you sitting down? - over $1000 on Ebay if you can find it. Little wonder - it was a top fun camera in my 56 yrs with photography. Second was Nikon F4. My 2 cents: humpless cameras make the best people cameras - the others raise a barrier between photographer and subject, too big, threatening, and self-serious.

Hmm the X-E2S is selling for £420 in excellent condition on MPB. Not sure who's paying over $1000 for them...

PAntunes: What do we want in hybrid cameras?

Basically all the features of a top of the line cine camera, mixed with a top of the line digital medium format stills camera but with sports performance and aps size. And obviously, entry level price.

Being realistic, when you NEED shutter angles, saving to SSD, RAW capture, etc, you should probably be looking at a dedicated video camera.

I solved that problem by using the C1-C3 positions. Each would have a specific frame rate and automatically set a specific shutter speed.

Now, if you're changing frame rates that much, how much are you using the camera for stills? Would you fit in the exact range of people that might be better served with a dedicated video camera?

Samuel Dilworth, shutter angle, for most photographers, is not a straight forward thing. Most photographers will be much more used to setting a shutter speed than an angle.

And it's not like you're getting a totally different effect by setting a camera speed instead of an angle.

Yes, it would cost nothing to add, but at the same time, is that really a feature most hybrid shooters would need?

jpeghorror: Usually I'm into more eccentric gear, but I decided to try an R6 II and I'm a little bit sad. It keeps doing everything well, I can't find a reason to scream at it. It's all so normal. Maybe I'll have to sell it.

PredatorsPrey, sony can do a list with the lenses they know can achieve specific speeds. And they know that because they've build those lenses.

With third party lenses, that's different.

Some of sigma and tamron can probably shoot those speeds, but others probably can't, will be inconsistent with aperture, or will break way sooner as they were not designed to do those speeds. Who's gonna test that?

If all sony lenses were able to do the full 30fps and third party lenses were limited, sure, it was an artificial limit to sell sony lenses. But when even sony lenses are limited as well, I'm not sure it's just that simple.

vadims sony also blocks some of their own lenses to 15fps, not only third party lenses.

And even with sony lenses, some of the cheaper lenses can shoot faster than the more expensive lenses, like the 85 1.8 shooting 30fps while the 85 1.4 can only go up to 20fps.

That's why I'm not that sure it's only a third party thing.

PredatorsPrey, not all sony lenses can do the full speed that some of the cameras allow either. So what you call artificially limiting third party equipment may not be artificial at all, but a precaution so the camera doesn't break the lenses or have inconsistent results.

And that's totally different from canon forcing two companies that were selling RF lenses with AF to stop selling those.

The question here isn't if third party manufacturers want to sell lenses in RF mount, but if canon lets them.

As I said before, sigma had E-mount lenses 2 years after a brand new mount with virtually no users was introduced. So where are those sigma lenses for RF?

And those lenses that were released for canon and not sony were all for DSLR, not mirrorless...

The first sigma e-mount lens was released in 2012.

PAntunes: Great for sports photographers who can't afford the R3.

Everyone else, probably better cameras out there.

Not really sure what you’re not getting…

Shoot sports-> R6II

Don’t shoot sports->
Shoots stills and video -> S5 II
Shoots stills and no video -> A7IV

If you want stills and video, the S5II is a better camera.

And it’s not a Sony camera….

davev8, having access to many lenses and having access to good lenses are two very different things.

Yes, you have access to 5 different 35-80mm f/4-5.6 from 1990-1995. Would you really want to use any?

Foskito, way less money if you want to add lenses.

A7IV for stills, S5II for hybrid shooters. Both cheaper and more interesting.

Olifaunt: It is a shame that the instant films available now are so bad. If you look back at good Polaroid photography in the 70s, there used to exist fantastic instant film. Famous photographers used it (e.g., the Polaroid Project), and it certainly wasn't this fakey olde-timey expired look.

They're not bad. Instax is quite acceptable film.

I've got a back for my mamiya press that uses instax wide and it doesn't have that "fakey olde-timey expired look" to it at all.

I wouldn't buy this camera, but I think it's incredible what they've achieved.

It's not a mainstream product, but with the right lenses and the right artist, this can create very unique images. If someone decided to gift it to me, I'd be more than excited to get it.

I just wonder why they didn't go for an option with a different lens mount. Something that could cover 6x6 without the need for additional glass.

Would really like to see a Chris and Jordan video, showing how the camera actually works. See them having some fun and creating some images with it. And as always, Chris would review the experience of using the camera and Jordan could talk about the film.
