  • Exactly why the Optical View Finder & the SLR is so completely screwed up in this digital world.

    Its a century old "periscope" technology invented for the first submarines and trench warfare in...

  • What BS... announcing it in February when availability is 4 months away! That's desperation for you - trying to keep customers onside when they are leaving in droves!

    Given the impending release...

  • @The Squire / @Dr_Jon,

    Try learning your stuff before you spew!

    All RAW formats are lossless forms of comression. Raw... geddit?

    If you have a bone to pick with any camera's compression, that's...

  • Sony makes the sensors for Nikon, Oly, Panasonic, smartphones etc. etc. - they are the only true sensor kings, geddit?

  • Noise level same as 5D Mk III? That means noise is still inferior to the flagship Sony sensors.

    Reckon the DR will be inferior too. What price resolution?!?!

    Let's wait for the Sony mega-sensors...

  • That's a stupid suggestion. You have a fixed image circle from the lens. You make the sensor to capture that. Why waste epensive sensor pixels when you can do everything by cropping in Photoshop (&...

  • That's a stupid suggestion. You have a fixed image circle from the lens. You make the sensor to capture as much of that in the aspect ratio must common in the industry.

    Why waste expensive sensor...

  • @FLM - Typical ridiculous ignorance of u folks with no understanding of photography. You dunno what mirror slap is but you make ignorant cheap throw away remarks like "use mirror-lock up".

    So you...

  • @otoklikBG,

    I'm no fan of anything except innovation and technical excellence. Problem with you fans is that you don't get it.

    Of course the technical quality of the A99 shots are higher when I...

    As a result you have to waste shutter counts, waste battery life, waste storage space taking unnecessary shots & most...

    Thus you waste shutter counts, waste battery life, waste storage space taking unnecessary shots & most importantly waste...

  • You are the perfect example of the ignorant pentaprism-OVF dinosaur.

    The whole reason why I moved to the A99/A7 paradigm is the same reason the mirrorless brigade moved to theirs.

    You dinosaurs...

  • You obviously are a simple cam person & shoot in none too challenging situations. Plus, you do not know your photography much.

    During the film days, PJs used to talk about the "need for speed" &...

  • ... my LCD display cos I know the exact exposure/colour tone & temperature before I shoot. The LCD is permanently closed inwards & only opened when I need to shoot at the waist level or ground...

  • Exactly... after 5 yrs of Nikon, 15 yrs of Canon, my Sony A99 simply knocked Canikon out of the park.

    Its not just any one thing - something the fanboys don't get.

    Its not just the...

  • Ditto what some have already pointed out. The difference will be huge in video. Someday somebody will make a consumer grade full frame 1080P video cam with exactly 1920 x 1080 pixels on the sensor....

  • What are you talking about? Alpha mount glass is their own original glass - the Sony adapter merely puts the flange distance back.

  • Again a lot of whining by the ignorant who do not know the lenses available to Sony users. There is this thing called google u know?!

    You lot whine and complain because you can't afford the...
