keeponkeepingon: Stopped watching at Zed 7.

Zed? What's a Zed?????

Zzzzzzzzz 7.

Camera Store guys have moved to a USA company. It's time that they learn USA english......

Curious do you only purchase American made products from the contents of your home, to your car, to your food to all of your camera gear, to just everything in your daily life? Are you strictly sticking to only USA products.

HP1999: Now you will really want a lens if not a camera body with IBIS or lens stabilization if they expect you to do this one handed.

And One more to change the lightbulb

drbruce2: Took the 24-105 to China. Impressive lens. Have the 70-300 for wildlife. Also impressive. The only problem is deciding which one to use! Wish they were lighter though.

It would have made more sense and been less expensive to do the Sony 24-70 f 4.0 and the 70-300 than the 24-105 and 70-300 if you intended to carry two lenses. Add the 12-24 and you have no wasted overlap duplicating focal lengths.

The only thing you are missing is 135 to 300 mm while you get what you get after 105 mm is more magnification you are paying $1000 for a slower 135mm to 300 mm zoom lens.
Past sensor size if super telephoto was important you could spend that $1200 on a Sony Rx-10 mark 3. And double the focal length.

You could buy an inexpensive micro 4/3 body with a super telephoto
Just a FYI. It takes planning not gas to make every dollar count. Just my opinion
Yes your money and your photography you have to like.

I will add the 24-105 wonderful lens and if ultra wide and telephoto are a rare need I would get a prime lens for that.

HP1999: I went from the D850 to Sony A73. Moving from the D850 to Z7 to me would make no sense. I am not opposed to a move back to Nikon if it makes sense to me. With the A73 I feel I have not missed anything vs the D750 or D850. This is paired with F 4.0 Sony lenses and Batis Primes.
Further it would not make sense to move from a D850 or D750 with fast Nikon glass just to go with Sony no benefit to swap a Nikon 24-70 VR for a Sony GM version etc

The D850 was the last camera I thought I would even own thats how good it is. I was really waiting to see what mirrorless could do. The camera dealer where I bought my A73 told me not to buy the Sony camera but to wait for the Nikon mirrorless to be sure. I had a feeling they were not right. Mainly I know enough that a new camera system with a new lens mount needs new lenses. Makes no sense at what Nikon charges for a z6 or z7 to switch from a D750/D850 at this stage. I am sure the Nikon Z6s and Z7s wont be out for a couple years but that does not resolve today. I was not looking forward to buying the Sony A73 at all! Us Nikon users know what to expect and testing a camera for the first time in the field is not advised. I bought the A73, and then sold the D850 and all the nikon gear I had.
For the most part the camera bag has gotten smaller

there is only so much you can stuff in a camera. When we start seeing used copies for $400 yeah that is worth a go.

HP1999: What are the laws about using a super telephoto lens to shoot from public access area say on a hill or high vantage point over a fence to private property.

thanks, was thinking the analogy to using a drone in the same manner.

The key for me is AF performance unless this is designed as a studio camera and not something designed for event photography. I may have missed those points as a skimmed over this

On article Panasonic S1 and S1R: What we know so far (893 comments in total)

I will venture a prediction since Panasonic is getting into the full frame game. Micro 4/3's will be old technology as a whole. Why pay almost $2000 for a MFT's body from Olympus or Panasonic (current flagships) when you can most likely get into full frame. The idea of a small camera will either be your smart phone or a p&s.

The camera market will start to look like 35 mm film days. everything was full frame or larger format with p&s and yes the p&s shoot cameras were all full frame using the same film stock as the SLRs

It may take another 5 years but Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic all with full frame micro 4/3's does not make sense IMO. Maybe APS-C will be here for a bit longer.

If I owned micro 4/3's and wanted to recoup something on the used market I would sell it all in the next 8 -12 months tops if not the short side of it.

Perfect size for the Sony A73 with 24-105, room for full size Sony flash F60rm and one more lens. I wish this was bigger for a better fit for the battery grip attached,
It will work but takes up 2/3 of this bag.
Room for cards and batteries as well
Look at it like this a good tripod, good camera bag is protecting or giving cover to many thousands in gear you have. $150 is nothing.

This is easy. The Sony A7 IV and Nikon Z9 are both better.

the question posed:
What would you want from a full frame Canon or Nikon mirrorless camera?

They forgot, include the entire frame... I mean I dont want half empty frames, but more optimistic ones..

In reply to:

HP1999: If Fuji has Sony and Nikon full frame pricing there is no benefit or I don’t see it
Oh well

Fair enough so with that in mind. Say Fuji XH-1 or XT-2 with Fuji 8-18 vs Nikon D500 with 14-24 mm 2.8. Maybe that is a good comparison.

Then toss Sony A7iii with 16-35 mm focal length is a minor differnce but that is more what you need wider or longer, but that may not be a like comparison if we talk sensor size.
SO maybe the Fuji 8-18 for $2000 is a wonderful lens but can the camera body keep up or is it overkill. Are you putting a 8-18 on Fuji XE-1 or XT-2 performace I think would be different
Too many variables
