Quote from: jwstl on June 11, 2015, 11:33:12 amI didn't see any mention of Sony adding uncompressed Raw. Will this camera still have the 11 or 12 bit (can't remember exactly which) compressed Raw?
Quote from: Telecaster link=topic=101111.msg828982#msg828982 date=As the A7i]x[/i] system is still incomplete lens-wise, I'll be taking a pass on this new camera at least 'til those eight unspec'd lenses on the Sony roadmap are announced & described in detail. Or until Zeiss announces a Batis in the 45-50mm range.Have you tried the Sony/Zeiss 55mm 1.8? It's outstanding.

Quote from: David Anderson on June 11, 2015, 09:00:27 pmWhile Sony has certainly made another big leap, I don't think it's completely fair to suggest the big boys have been sitting on their hands.Nikon took 35mm digital to new level the D800 and have a decent upgrade in the D810. I also see the steady issue of new lenses as a plus with both the 20 1.8G and new compact 300 f4 being quite tempting.Canon ? A 50 MP 35mm DSLR is hardly asleep at the wheel, and even if it is just a new sensor in an older body, it's a big leap in resolution. Lenses like the 11-24 are also pretty exciting as is the prospect of a 5DIV.That said, Sony certainly have their foot on the gas and I find the A7 series very tempting for both the tech, the vibe and the new lenses.A couple things that put me off the brand are the single memory card slots in the A's (making them risky for paid work) and the confusion in two lens mounts in their system.Assuming for a minute that Canon and Nikon will not be doing anything in mirrorless that rivals the A7's I can see myself getting one of the A7RII's and a couple of lenses for limited paid work and unlimited personal work.
Quote from: Josh-H on June 12, 2015, 12:48:34 amJust to be clear though - the Nikon D800e and D810 are driven by Sony sensors. And it is really the Sony Sensor at the heart of these two machines that has been the catalyst for their success.
Quote from: Stefan.Steib on June 12, 2015, 03:45:09 amNon Professional because it has only one card slot.OK - byebye all Medium format gear by Phase, Leaf and Blad. It is non professional ?
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on June 12, 2015, 02:16:12 amThe D810 has many qualities going beyond its sensor, but on the sensor front, that is true. What is also true though is that Sony Semi Conductor (a different company from Sony imaging) sold a large majority of their 36mp sensors, and 24mp sensors before that, thanks to Nikon's business.So there is really no way to know whether we would have 36mp sensors today without the commitment of Nikon to buy parts in large amounts.
Quote from: michael on June 11, 2015, 08:13:20 pmYup. Sony missed a few boats...- no uncompressed raw- no GPS- no USB3 tetheringBut, my point is not that they made the perfect camera, but hat they hit all the major bases this time round.
Quote from: dreed on June 12, 2015, 06:34:03 amWould you rank them in that order or importance? Or would USB3 tethering come in above GPS?
