On article Nikon Z7 II review (1500 comments in total)

Meh. The R5 is still better and Nikon has had at least two years to make massive leaps with this camera. Yes, it's 900 cheaper than the R5, but they are in the same class and those looking at such want the best performing camera.

A child's camera great for the immature children of Sony. 10/10 would recommend.

But that means I have to use EF lenses though... I'll pass

sneakyracer: Typical Sony photographer, lots of dynamic range and technical prowess (including heavy post-processing) but no SOUL. Ciao.

We've arrived at a point where there is the capacity technogically for so much of images to be altered and morphed with relative ease to very drastic extents. The repercussion is that such photography strays more and more from the very world and reality it's been traditionally based upon in trade predominately for the creative expanse of a photographer's mind instead. In essence, it's like an extension of painting or sculpting, expect far less of aptitude is required and there really is no means to fail. This type of photography Cath's work falls into is very, very far from the traditional basis most were taught or grew up with. I don't think it's a surprise such a disparity in the comments with so many having no regard for her or her work. I imagine it has to be disappointing. It's one thing to get an average person who doesn't really know what they're seeing to like your work and another for another photographer to like it. I'm surprised DPreview ran this article, very controversial.

@Cath when you've traversed the Pacific Crest trail, that's no problem. I don't think too many will find several day treks that impressive. Anyway, I've noticed you've posted all over the comments section and I think you've got to realize your work is going to be very... controversial with other photographers. In particular, I'm seeing comments saying your work isn't unique and that it's all more or less the same. If you're looking for gratification or justification, Instagrak is the place to go. You won't find it here without plenty who don't like what you do.

Ranger 9: But of course! After all, probably 99% of penniless migrant farm laborers are able to launch successful photography careers after posting their phone-camera photos on Instagram. Being a physically attractive and fit former model, art director and stylist couldn't possibly have anything to do with it. Likewise, everyone goes on three-month international hiking trips, because it's not as if that costs money or anything, and then everyone begins teaching workshops. Right?

No disparagement intended of the image-maker, whose pictures are very nice-looking and who I'm sure is a fine human being.

But I do get tired of reading this type of how-I-succeeded story in the photo press because, statistically, people like Ms. Simard are outliers. There's no point in studying their methodology or their images, because their success -- like most people's success -- is based largely on luck and knowing/meeting the right people. And you can't learn how to do that by reading an article.

Hard work beats taken when talent doesn't work hard, dude.

Poefolk: Once again, an article about a Sony camera gets spammed by Canon worshippers like Pascal F and Thoughts R US. You'd think they'd be out shooting with their new spiffy R5's, but I guess they'd rather stay inside and worship their cameras while trying to trash other camera brands. How insecure can you get?

this new Sony cam is so disappointing

Sony doesn't have more precise colors? Are you nuts? The R5 does have better af accuracy. Your Sony bias is extreme

Kennygoos: It is unacceptable i.m.o. That this camera overheats.
Iam very disappointed because the specs are great, but for my kind of work it will be very bad waiting for a 4000 dollar camera to cool down.
I will pass unless canon finds an inbody cooling solution, this wont be my camera.
The panasonic with a cooling fan is the way to go, so sorry, because i have canon lenses.

You ever shot 20 minutes in 8k? That is such a huge crapload of data, most videographers never will. You're being impractical.

To not screw up the release of the camera somehow- ie overpricing it and the accessories. But Canon will probably do what it does best when it comes to camera bodies.

With a 50mm RF, this is cool.

Tom Caldwell: Just another dslr look-alike for those that are not game to own a camera that has any other shape. Just when will the camera manufacturers be game enough to sell a FF ML body with a flat top plate. Does Leica have a patent on the RF-style shape?

The “pretend” dslr body the only shape that can be recognised as a proper camera.

Don’t rock the boat lest you scare the horses?

Most mirrorless cameras look like film camera knock-offs. Get over yourself.

Some of these photos are just trash.

Austin7642: Product and lens of the year, huh? The fanaticism around newer generation camera bodies and Sony in particular sure are discouraging. I honestly couldn't care less about newer camera bodies. All the 'invasions' are semantic most of the time. It's innovation and improvement within lenses that matters far more and should be more of a focus. PoY shouldn't been a lens, not a camera body.

@flackoman, yes, sorry.

@geekyrocketguy please read my comment in full. I'm just in line with all the excitement over most camera body improvements. You see, new generations of cameras come out every year or two and the improvements largely are not that significant. Whether a Sony A7R5 or a 5D IV, I can go out and get great shots. Lenses however are upgraded at a much slower pace. The difference between one version and a subsequent can be dramatic. Just compare the 70-200mm rf and any 70-200mm 2.8. If PoY is for the best product, a great deal for a product to merit such should be on its innovation relative to other similar products and its according impact/ significance.

In reply to:

paulski66: There's only one f/0.95 lens on this list. Anything else is more or less superfluous in terms of technical achievement.

So practicability means nothing to you then?
