Juck: Can we assume it performs as well as their 50mm 1.8 clone? i.e. crap.
"good artists copy but great artists steal"
AbrasiveReducer: Maybe things will start to settle and the companies who are best at making sensors will stick to that, and the companies who have traditionally made cameras and have large consumer bases will stick to that. Sony has wisely realized that with the number of cameras they sell, there is more money in selling sensors than any advantage to having a superior sensor that you have to buy a Sony camera to use.

Reminds me of Kodak and Polaroid.
mpgxsvcd: You have to really do something special to get the Gold award now and I am OK with that fact.
yet, one of a kind FF with IBIS is not enough
Lan: No lossless RAW? No sale!
No DR>14? No sale!
mpgxsvcd: I admit it. I jumped ahead to see if it got a Gold award or not. It almost appears that Dpreview is being more reserved in giving out Gold awards lately or even giving a camera an award at all. I think that is a good thing.
It seemed like all a camera had to do to get the Gold award before was to actually take pictures and perhaps shoot some form of video.
Now it seems like if the camera is just a warmed over version of its predecessor then it won’t get any award at all. If it is a great camera but doesn’t really stand out then it gets Silver. And it will only get the Gold award if it truly is a step above all of its other competition.
Those are great changes to add to the always great content that Dpreview puts out in their reviews.
though, very likely that high megapixel Canon 5D "warmed over version" would get gold awards
quezra: I like how they complained about the lack of a flash on this camera
Yep, just another bias against Sony. No such complaints in D750 or 5DM3 reviews.
geo444: .old new 2010 APSH 120 MPix CMos sensor is backwww.dpreview.com/articles/2773376832/canon120mpsensor... with the same words inside :« parallel signal processing - high speed readout - high pixel count »... those after repeating during 7 years :« more gapless microlenses »... waiting for the time the words in Canon's comm to be :« dynamic range »;)
2010 era DR rating guaranteed!
Benarm: nicely dumbed down for the masses
@Rupert, did you feel inferior when you read that?

Where is Victoria Nuland with her "special" cookies?
Logical progression for a photo processing software. The 32-bit version lasted more than necessary.
I'm waiting for MKII version of it with A6000-like AF
*champagne bottles popping at Adobe headquarters*
Some of these could have been done via a firmware upgrade for D800/E.
All it needs is the fast AF tech from A6000. Then I'll upgrade from my RX100 MKI. Maybe next year. :)
W5JCK: It's hard to believe today is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion into Normandy. A good day to remember all the sacrifices that were made on this day so long ago, and all the sacrifices that were made throughout the war on so many beaches throughout the SW Pacific Islands, the Far East, North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. Most of the veterans are now gone including my Dad all my uncles who fought during WWII. May they rest in peace. We should be so thankful that they sacrificed so much to stop the world from destroying itself.
Most of the WWII sacrifices were on the Eastern Front. Over 80% of Nazi forces were defeated on the Eastern Front.
I wonder if she captured NATO war crimes there...
Better late than never, but the Nikon's respect has been tarnished.
What could possibly go wrong with this?
Some awkward photos there, straight from anti-Russian propaganda book. You have no idea of what Sochi is if this is all you seen. Even Google Images is better.
