NextShowForSure: All this increasingly complex firmware in lenses trying to keep up with the updates by the body maker is a great ploy for sales. You have to wonder if these things will effectively self destruct as far as it goes for any new camera or firmware release if the lens maker cannot keep up.
The increasing price of kit seems to be matched with increasingly obsolescence prone equipment with deeper and more complex automation. Probably a lot of pros may be better off hanging on to those trusty old DSLRs and their unrefined lenses.

I suspect you've got it backwards. Glass lasts far longer than electronics. Witness Nikon's new mirrorless full frame, with its adapter to use old glass. Heck, I'm still using a Nikon 50mm 1.4 from 1964.

I can import RAW photos with a plugged-in memory card about 1 times out of 10 now. Most of the time my iPhone either ignores the card or goes into an endless loop. Hopefully this will be fixed.

OceanXL: I would be upset if I didn't get paid, but I would caution against weaponizing my art. I know it's tempting, but you gotta cool off and go through legal channels first. You don't want future clients to think you're unprofessional and vindictive.

Clients like Shek Wes will also avoid litigious photographers. They're looking for someone they can abuse, not professionals. If you want to be a victim then by all means don't do anything to offend that sort of client such as, for example, demanding to be paid.

You want future clients to think you expect to get paid and that lawyers are not the only option.

LincolnB: Loose????

"When loosing a stop of light, I expected to loose focus speed as well"

One does not "loose" focus speed.

DPR fixed it. Thank you.

So what if the purpose was different? What if the photographer didn't WANT the photo be used for other purposes?

photogeek: Or you could just take less gear with you and use any bag you like.

The primary function of a bag is to hold the gear you like, not the other way around.

LincolnB: Manual focus is a lot more difficult with a DSLR like the Nikon D850 than with a mirrorless camera.

It's not the mirror slap that's the problem. It's holding the camera at arm's length instead of wedged up against the face that makes the camera shake more with a DSLR than a mirrorless camera.

Is not the Leica Q mirrorless too?

In live view you have to hold the D850 away from you in order to see the screen, no? Which increases the amount of camera shake and makes you look like a dork.

Wow that's ugly.
It's an ode to conspicuous spending.

IMHO these look terrible wide open. SUPER soft, so soft it's hard to tell if it's the lens or simply misplaced focus.

There's a nice chunk of dust on the sensor too, center right.

In reply to:

EvgeniK: What a BS comparison!

"To try and match depth of field, Manny shot the A9 photos at F2.8, and the A6500 photos were taken wide open at F1.8, at least for the daytime photos."

As other have already commented, you should try the opposite. What? You can't? This is why FF is preferred by some people.

Yes, these sorts of comparisons usually deliberately cripple one of the choices to make it "fair".

This was a good video article but he need to preface all his comments with "For portrait photographers". The photography world is so much more than just portraits of models.

DaveE1: The first suggested article for me under this one on copyright is the monkey selfie one with the monkey face. I wonder if anyone else would find that amusing. Maybe just me. :)

No, that's exactly the first article that should pop up in the section titled "YOU MAY ALSO LIKE".

Did a manager at DJI fail to get a QA/Software Tester headcount approved?
