  • What? The IBIS works just fine when using adapted lenses... That was the whole point?!

    Size advantage depends on what you started with, I guess, but my a7II is a lot lighter and smaller than my...

  • It doesn't say that - it says 'starting with A7R II'.

    We can only hope (not that I particularly care) but Sony do seem to have a got a bit better at supporting 'old' hardware now...

  • Oh, lighten up. You could view it as much as a dig at Sony's lens range as Canon's cameras...

  • Is it a similar set-up to the Sony E-mount IBIS set-up, where the IBIS handles pitch, yaw and roll and the lens stabiliser handles X and Y? Because I believe the GX7's IBIS is only 2-axis, so that...

  • Hmm, on the Amazon link you provided, at the time of this post there are 210 positive (4 or 5-star) reviews, of which 170 gave 5-stars. There a 49 critical (3 stars or less) reviews, of which 18...

  • Yes, but you still haven't told me how to fit a mirrorless camera 'not much bigger but much better' with a 24-70 ~f/4-f7 equivalent lens in my pocket.

    If there's no other way to do it, it's not a...

  • That would be called an FZ1000, wouldn't it?

    Or are you talking about retaining the constant 2.8 zoom?

    Because that would be called an RX10.

    Or do you want a camera with a constant 2.8 zoom of...

  • "If the price is higher the camera lens must be detachable"

    Really? You've never seen an LX100? Or a Leica Q? Or a Leica X? Or a Sigma DP? Or a Coolpix A? Or a GR? Or an X100/S/T? Or an RX1?

    I...

  • Are you comparing RAW or JPEG, anyway? I can see that the JPEGs are a bit softer from 1600+, but it's not like Sony's JPEG rendering is any good to start with. In RAW, I'm really struggling to see...

  • I can't see a dramatic difference. Nothing I wouldn't accept for 4K video and a better EVF, anyway.

  • Hmm, has the build quality of Canon's printers got good again? My MG6150 (circa 2010) seems to be indestructible... My dad's MG5550 (2013) is awful. It's really noisy, very cheaply built and has...

  • Wow, anything to have a pop, eh? Even when the decision is favourable.

  • But is power consumption really a huge concern for the kind of applications people would actually use this card for? I transfer the odd image off of my RX100M3 and a7M2 using WiFi - it's probably...

  • But the combination of NFC and WiFi-Direct already does that job... So you've got to wonder why they bothered.

  • I guess you can read:

    "Sony introduced TransferJet technology in 2008, and previously included it in an 8GB Memory Stick card and Cyber-shot cameras like the DSC-TX7, but it never quite took off...

  • I'm not ignorant of the vignetting and distortion issues caused by the peripheral ray angle of WA M-mount lenses on FF sensors. However, that effect is diminished and practically invisible with...

  • 577 dpi?

    When will phone manufacturers get it into their numb-skulls that more than ~400dpi is a complete waste of resources, screen brightness and battery life. There's no way a 5.1" screen needs...

  • If you wanted an APS-C camera to stick behind Leica glass in this day and age, surely you'd buy an a6000 or one of the Samsung NX family?! Why bother with a 4 year old kludge like the GXR+A12?

  • Commented on article Nikon D7200 Review

    But surely it's irrelevant - this is an SLR? All SLRs, with the exception of SLTs (which, yes, are SLRs by definition) have an OVF - thus it's not a 'plus point' but merely part of the expected...

  • Commented on article Nikon D7200 Review

    Personally, as somebody who doesn't shoot action, I would never go back to an OVF - the OVF on a crop sensor camera is far smaller than high-end EVFs now, manual focus with EVFs is infinitely...
