  • Megapixels only matter to marketing teams and people who think they matter. Really, how big do you have to print before 16MP is limiting?

  • Some people can only think in binary. You either have to love something or hate it.

    I use both as well, but I disagree with you in one respect. Mirrorless is at an early stage in its development,...

  • Sony finally get serious. Looks great on paper, for sure. Didn't expect a full frame BSI sensor, but I guess it was inevitable, and it may solve the light falloff issues on the 24-70.

  • Lower DR than the D7200 because of the low bit depth.

    And why not have the option of lossless compression? Landscape photographers don't care about a few large files.

    When all added together,...

  • Sony make good sensors, so why can't they get as much out of them as Nikon manage?

  • It is NOT a technically specific term. It is a word that has been lazily co-opted by marketing twits who don't think further than next quarter's sales target.

    SLR and SLT are technically...

    No, the word mirrorless means 'with no mirror'. You may read between the lines to add a lot of qualifications, but the term is meaningless to anyone who doesn't know much about...

  • None of which makes this categorisation any less confusing or any more intelligent. It's like defining electric cars as gas-less.

    It's a completely stupid form of categorisation. It would make...

  • SLR defines exactly what the camera IS. Mirrorless, as both of you pointed out, does not.

    The word mirrorless implies nothing other than the fact there is no mirror. Which means it could just as...

  • Mother Theresa was not a psychopath....

    Sorry, just thinking about the idiocy of defining something by what is isn't.

    iPhones are "mirrorless" cameras too.

  • Hey Rishi, thanks for the long reply. Bill Claff's data shows a definite step for sure. Useful resource, must bookmark.

    And yes, Canon's ISO cap is probably a marketing decision ;-)

  • Thanks for that. Yes, you are right. But the difference seems quite large. Could it be due to other factors as well. For instance:

    The D810 is ISO invariant above ISO 1600, the A7S is not.

    The...

  • I think I am right in thinking that larger photosites generally have more read noise and less shot noise. They will look better in mid-tones, but if you push the shadows in post, noise will show...
