panther fan: 1016g ?!?

That is not only heavier than the Sony/ Nikon mirrorless, but that is heavier than a D750 or 5D IV

@SheepStar I use true Silent Mode, not EFCS, which doesn't effect the bokeh... I use Lumix cameras, they've had real Silent Shutter since...GH3...I think that was the first model...it was early silent shutter so not the best.... and bad rolling shutter. The Lumix G9 Silent mode is incredible! Lumix (and Oly) has been ahead in the mirrorless technology for a long time now. You can also use EFCS on most mirrorless cameras, but it's mostly to reduce shutter shock...

@SheepStar Fair enough, not what I believe and I shoot over 35 weddings a year. All with silent mode... 90% of the time. There are a few circumstances where the frequency of artificial light creates banding on the image, but that's only in certain shutter speed ranges...and in most cameras now there's little-to-no rolling shutter problems. One day we'll all have mirrorless/shutterless cameras...only a matter of time.

@SheepStar I use electronic shutter 90% of the time...way better! But most mirrorless cameras have IBIS now...so my argument is half true with moving parts lol

@halfniak noisy...not the images obviously...that slappy happy mirror and shutter. Duh! OVF is an advantage if that's all you got, EVF is a far better tool, with many tools integrated that an OVF can't even match. D850's don't hang on the wall in an art gallery, so just like art out in the 'real world', it's parts and pieces deteriorate and fail...less moving parts is always better. No D3100 or Canon rebel even come close to Pana and Oly single point auto focus speed and accuracy...period! The D850 is a phenomenal DSLR...probably the best ever made...but it's like comparing a gas engine car to an electric...both have the same end result, but the electric is far more efficient, fast, clean, smart, reliable. The way of the future.

FlyinDoc: It's interesting to read (and watch) DPReview's list of "handful of irritations" about the new camera and see if any of them are important/irritations to me personally. 8 bit video? This is not a pro video camera. It's a stills resolution monster and Sony got the balance right. Lack of raw editing in camera? If I was editing raw files, I would want the full control over global and local adjustments that a proper converter would give you. Rolling shutter in silent shutter? Of course it will have, just like every other camera not named A9.

The two real head scratchers for me are the lack of Touch menus and no preview for Pixel shift file. Yup, those are real bummers. Otherwise, just wow.

As an elopement photographer, giving my clients instant results to share immediately is so important, in camera raw processing, and wifi/bluetooth/nfc transfer are serious tools. My clients will eventually receive fully edited images, but it's that instant satisfaction that really makes the difference for their experience.

wats0n: How long until we go full circle and the mirrorless body becomes the size of a DSLR to support the size and weight of these lenses ? I mean say what you will, but nothing IMHO feels as good in the hand as a traditional DSLR, even if they are not in en vogue.

@wats0n try a Lumix S1R...you'll like it.

techie takes pics: This is extremely cool.
It means the L-mount now has another brand actually producing cameras.
In addition, Sigma challenges the notion that Full Frame cameras have to be big. Or limited in capabilities.

Good news for the L-mount and for Panasonic!

You could adapt any lens in history to this thing...there's tons of gorgeous manual focus prime lenses out there that would fit this camera perfectly! And at cheap prices too. Canon, Nikkor, Pentax, Voigtlander, Leica...etc.

Limbsjones: Nocticron?? 200mm f2.8??? 100-400mm?? Wow!

Nocticron is certainly worth over the oly if you shoot Lumix cameras, many advantages with Dual IS, DFD, Auto focus Speed, Corrections. They are optically very similar, but I also prefer the look and feel of the Nocticron...just feels more premium, especially with that badass metal lens hood. I know it's not weather sealed...wish it was...but it's really only a couple cheap rubber rings you're talking about...I've used both, the oly is fantastically sharp! But there's just some magic about the Lumix/Leica rendering that I prefer over olympus lenses.

UllerellU: It's not that sharp, but what worries me most is that busy bokeh, I have a 35 f1.2 APSC (52 f1.8 equivalent FF) and it produces a softer bokeh and is sharper in any aperture not to mention that It is much, but much much much more economical

@UllerellU the Lumix 50mm is extremely sharp. I've used it at several weddings and I've never seen a lens that sharp wide open... you have no idea.

@wats0n There's no Leica badge on this lens... it's a Panasonic Lumix lens.

Limbsjones: I'm finding all the negative comments are from the video people...if these are anything like the G9 they are going to be the best general purpose professional full frame photography cameras on the market, priced perfectly to take a chunk out of the D850 crowd.

Limbsjones: Can you please raise the value score on the G9 review...it really doesn't make sense when comparing your review to the EM1X...

wow...you're sure telling me a lot with that. Semi-pro...Pro...lol...whateva! The G9 does everything the EM1x can do that relates to 99% of what professionals are shooting, it's built just as tough, and you can buy a battery grip for the G9, and buy 20 batteries, and it'll probably still be cheaper than the EM1x...EM1x worst value in history, especially with cameras like the G9 out there.

You can double the battery life of the G9 by purchasing the battery grip, and still the G9 will cost way less than the EM1x. Lumix is rolling out similar AI features in their new S1 S1R cameras like tracking of automobiles and animals, and I could see this trickling into the G9 with firmware updates. The G9 is less than half the price, for 95% of the same features, excellent weather sealing, better EVF, and same image quality.

@NOWHITELENS D850 has old mirror/moving parts tech, chimping, noisy, slower top shutter speed, less flash sync speed, slower single point auto focus, ovf (plus' and minus'), lack luster touch screen interface, crappy video, no ibis (and if using VR lenses, they still don't even hold a match to lumix IBIS with IS), less megapixel, no pixel shift mode, proprietary system...shall I continue...
