  • @osv- I don't think you read to well. I specifically said that the latest digital Leica M's that offer rear LCD Live View and EVF attachments were "hybrids". I never spoke about the Leicas that...

  • @kevin_r - meh, no thanks. I switched to mirrorless because-- to me-- the lighter weight and less bulky cameras makes being out and about shooting more enjoyable. I'd feel the same way if I were...

  • @Kevin DiOssi - "But then I shoot with big lenses without the grip on the 5D and realize how important having the large camera ergonomics is for fatigue and stability."

    Why? Your left hand...

  • A lot of wedding photogs shoot with 2 bodies. When I was shooting weddings, I carried 2 bodies that I almost never put down because weddings are targets for camera equipment thieves. Plus, I like...

  • Sony has the FE 100-400/4.5-5.6mm OSS. I used to shoot field sports with a Canon 100-400/4.5-5.6L IS. Worked fine for me. Gave me plenty of reach.

  • I think Sony will be fine even if they pick up just a slice of the sports market in a few years. I think the A9 is designed to be a "halo" product that will help boost the sales of their future...

  • @virtualreality - I referred to "FE system" because I was making the distinction that I was talking specifically about Sony's FF cameras and lenses. Yes, the Sony A9 has an "E-mount." But Sony's...

  • @tkbslc - "Well, the article above quoted actual sports pros saying they can't do without them."

    Yeah, but my point is that not *everyone* is a sports pro. That's a very specific market. There are...

  • The FE system is less than 5 years old (the first A7 was introduced in October 2013). And the A9 is Sony's *first* "sports" camera for the FE system. (Not bad for 1st generation version!) People...

  • It's funny how people seem to think that *EVERY* photographer is using 300, 400, 500 and 600 primes, and *NO ONE* can do without them. There are plenty of pro photogs who never use those big...

  • @mart1234- by today's standards, Canon's ECF is primitive technology. Today, if they were to revise it, they'd probably want to put a tiny imaging sensor into the viewfinder instead of a bunch of...

  • @Kevin Coppalotti - the A9 has adjustable frame rate. If you want a slower frame rate, just select a slower frame rate. For your particular situation, which doesn't seem too demanding because...

  • No, it's totally different. Canon's Eye Control Focus allowed you to select which focus point to use simply by looking at the desired focus point in the viewfinder. Canon used a series of infrared...

  • @Zdman- " At one point the Nex 3 and Nex 5 were really cheap. Samsung was selling some lower specification mirrorless at giveaway prices and these were introductory prices."

    Well, you basically...

  • Back then, it was Canon that was the hungry underdog, compelled to innovate in order to catch Nikon-- which they eventually did. At the time, Nikon was the reigning king, and they were comfortable...

  • Oddly enough, your description of Sony's "philosophy" matched Canon's in the late 1980's and 1990's, while your description of Canon's current "philosophy" mirrored Nikon's during the same era....

  • BTW, if you are strapped for cash, you may be able to find Chinese knockoff of the Leash online. I have a Peak on one of my cameras, and a Chinese knockoff on another camera. They are almost ...
  • I highly recommend the Peak Design Leash. It's a fantastic camera strap, and it's the one I have on my A6000. It's a thin strap, but don't let that mislead you into thinking it's too thin. It's ...
  • Well, I think silent shooting with full e-shutter is one of those things that "you didn't know you needed until you had it." I think a lot of wedding photogs are going to like it. It's something...

  • @quiquae- You're right, Canon/Nikon have economies of scale with their low end models. But that doesn't do much for their other DSLR models that use entirely different parts and sell at much lower...
