  • I got one at $998 with the 28-70 kit lens, 64GB SD card, and a nice little travel tripod. For the price, it's great. I also got the Sigma MC-11 EF-to-E adapter so I can use my Canon EF lenses. The ...
  • @endofoto - "Mirrorless system will overcome AF issue in a few years but I dont think it will lock on very fast objects bec it wont know what you are looking for and too slow for an eagle diving on...

  • @Ebrahim Saadawi - "yet people preferred Canon because they "just work"."

    No, in the DSLR market it wasn't because they (Canon) "just work." It's because everyone else was using a Canon DSLR (or...

  • @jkgal - But is that going to work in the mirrorless market? That's questionable. The DSLR market was basically a Canon/Nikon duopoly with Canon and Nikon having overwhelming adoption and power....

  • The mark up price on internal memory is typically far more expensive than if you were to buy it externally in memory card form. It would be frightening to think how much Canon would charge for...

  • @dereken - "Arguably the average buyer on BHPhoto is better informed than the average Amazon buyer."

    First of all, that does not appear to be a numerical ranking. Secondly, even if it were, the...

  • @Ebrahim Saadawi - The A7R III and Z7 both have their pros and cons.

    "Plus you do know that Sony are last on sales versus Nikon and Canon right?"

    Only if you count DSLRs. But in the mirrorless...

  • "I don't get why people keep saying that it is their first mirrorless camera."

    It's an acknowledgment that there's a big difference between putting out a mirrorless camera with a 1" sensor versus...

  • @Bob Jameson - Sure, sales don't matter. LOL.

    First half of 2018, Nikon was third in FF ILC sales in the...

  • John would also like these reviews to be printed on paper and mailed to his house. After all, what good is a review if you can't lick your finger to turn the page?

  • "So what blocks me concerning Sony, is that they want to make camera that is more suited for "millennials" and "instagramers" with a lot of auto features and not that resistant."

    Similar things...

  • @Bob Jameson - "The a7R III has a lot more work to do to catch up to the Z7."

    Except in sales. The A7R III was introduced more than a year ago, and it's still outselling the new Z7. The A7R III...

  • @matthew saville - "but I think both Nikon and Canon will surpass Sony in many ways in less than half the time that it's taken Sony to get this far."

    I love these predictions. Before CaNikon...

  • @endofoto - That's a Nikon Z7 mirrorless issue. It's not an issue with all mirrorless cameras. That's like if a Pentax KP or K-70 had AF issues, then we concluded "we need more time to have better...

  • @Mortal Lion - But the implication at the time was that Canon should stick to making copiers and leave the camera-making to Nikon-- especially after the death of the Canon FD system. The argument...

  • Yes, and when Sigma/Panasonic enter the FF mirrorless market, Sony, Canon, and Nikon will "lose market share". But that will not necessarily mean that their sales volume went down. So for all we...

  • Kind of reminds me of when Nikon users used to say, "Canon makes copiers, Nikon makes cameras" back in the 1990s. Gee, I wonder how that worked out?

  • @endofoto - Mirrorless systems don't have an AF system? Their AF systems are actually more technologically advanced than DSLR systems. They already have face and eye AF. With Sony's face AF, it can...

  • @Oskar P - I'd be more worried about Nikon. Sony will be fine. They are massive company with huge profits. The same can not be said of Nikon. Company size, revenue, and diversification matters....

  • @the decent exposure - Exactly. It is impossible for Sony's market share to not decline as new sellers enter the market. But that does not necessarily mean that there has been a proportional drop...
