If you want a large APS-C sensor then get the Sony QX1 smartphone camera. I sometimes use it with my 6.44" Sony Xperia Z Ultra that has an optional case with mount built-in for the QX1 . My Z Ultra does not have a flash and the QX1 has a pop up flash . I can also use any lens on it like my E/FE mount lenses.

My FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* on A7r is the sharpest AF 50-58mm lens I have seen for a full frame camera.

I would prefer a 4K version of the Sony full frame VG900 with 12mp A7s sensor and IBIS like the A7r II since 409600 iso is good enough.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (1331 comments in total)
In reply to:

Babka08: Every comparison it seems that people make in this post are for larger or much, much larger cameras. The comparisons to apsc or 4/3 cameras is also telling, simply because the RX100 is even in the comparison bench. Folks, it is tiny. Nothing comes close. The review is bang on. I'll be upgrading from my mk 1 to this sometime fairly soon. The viewfinder itself is a significant reason.

Clueless people think a big hunk of plastic like a Canon T5 DSLR is what you need to impress your friends. It's funny how some people buy a Canon DSLR don't even know how to spell Canon, they post it as Cannon.

Francis Carver: "The Speed Booster is essentially a backwards teleconverter... shortening the focal length of the lens.. as a 0.71x focal length multiplier lens... combined with the 2x crop of a Four Thirds sized sensor gives a net effective crop of 1.4x, so a 50mm lens becomes a 35.5mm lens when the adapter is added. Then ... this 35.5mm lens offers a field-of-view equivalent to a 71mm lens on full frame."

Wow, how wonderful, Metabones & Co. Who would give $649 for the privilege of giving up ultra wide angle perspectives? This product makes zero sense. You can get a pretty good lens, maybe even a pair of lenses, for that much money.

I guess you could also say a Canon 600mm F4 is a just a tube with glass in it if all you think the Speed Booster adapter is just a backwards teleconverter and worthless gadget.

If it had a 2.5m dot OLED EVF and 4K it would be interesting.

Joe Ogiba: DPR : Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 makes leap to 20MP

Really ? So DPR thinks 20mp is a bigger deal than 4K. My Sony QX1 smartphone camera also has 20mp with a larger APS-C sensor but I would prefer it had 10mp with 4K.

There is a huge difference between 1080p and 4K but not so much between 16mp and 20mp.

I am waiting for the GH5 with IBIS for my 25mm F0.95 Nokton and 75mm F1.8 Olympus ED. I think it also might have 4K 60p.

Nice shot, I guess you must be in the landing or takeoff path of a large airport. I am about 25 miles from Newark NJ EWR but have yet to capture a plane with my moon shots.

Take away all cameras and replace them with guns. We need to reduce the world population by a few billion.

On Sony: An eye on focus article (758 comments in total)
In reply to:

Utterlyotter: Magnificent camera, but not for me for the forseeable future even though it does give me a touch of GAS.
I really really hope this sensortech will be implemented in the upcoming A6100 or A7000. (End of the year or 1st quarter of next is my guess)
Teething issues - wich most new tech has - should hopefully be ironed out by then.

+ Quiet shutter, built in ND capability and Ibis would be nice, as long as it doesn´t make it significantly larger..

I have the Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS and FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS zoom Lenses along with the 35mm F2.8 , 55mm F1.8 Zeiss FE primes and many fast MF primes from 24mm F1.4 to 85mm F1.4 with adapters for my A7r.

70-200mm @ 200mm F4 :

I guess the full frame Sony RX1r (minus lens hood) would be a great camera to use in the Whitehouse ;)

I shot some 4K UHD videos of the moon with my Samsung NX1 the past week with 920mm F9 and 1480mm F6.3 scopes.

ttran88: Canon XC10 is more important than this camera. 4k no Lossy RAW. Only $2500

The RX10 II is a better camera than the XC10 for much less money. The XC10 doesn't even have an EVF, it uses a loupe on the LCD.

My last DSLR purchase was the Pentax K-7 in July 2009 and after getting the GH2 in December 2010 and using my K mount lenses for 1080p I never had a desire to purchase another DSLR. My current cameras are the NX1, GH4, A7r and VG900 full frame camcorder. My guess is DSLRs will be mostly gone from the consumer camera market within the next ten years.

Mssimo: Wow 82mm filter. Huge front element.

I sold my Pentax 6x7 55mm F3.5 wide angle lens with nine 100mm Pentax filters a few months ago on ebay.

It's funny how Pentax fanboys are saying it will be on K-mount too. The hot selling full frame Sony A7 line would be getting this before the full frame Pentax that will not be a hot seller since many are now using their Pentax lenses on mirrorless system cameras like the low cost full frame Sony A7. With the new A7r II and A7s II coming Ricoh will have a hard time trying to sell many of the new full frame Pentax DSLRs unless it has the latest tech like 4K but Ricoh already said they are not interested in video.

paulfulper: The best SUPERZOOM I'm waiting for is....
6.6 x 8.8 sensor , twice the size of all the other superzoom
backside illuminated CMOS
24-2200 zoom.
5 axis stabilization
full manual control beside the automatic
hot shoe flash and pop up flash
4k video
without RAW , NFC and WI FI to lower the cost ( I don't need them )

That's my dream
