  1. I'd be surprised if it wasn't; having played with the raws the attitude in the shadows is underwhelming. And typically with the same sensor in a Sony body its always a megapixel or two smaller, probably due to the small lens mount. Try shooting with the 28mm f2 on the Sony and when you use the crop tool in C1 you gettthe option to enlarge the crop area as there are extra pixels captured in both dimensions as that lens has the ability to project an image on the entire sensor.
  2. The Rx1Rii is a bargain as long as the back screen coating is intact. Zeiss should simply do a software "UPDATE" and remove Lightroom and lower the price to $3500
  3. The best thing they can do is use a more modern and efficient CPU. Maybe buy from apple or Samsung their previous generation smartphone architecture.
  4. I don't believe that's true. Nikon when they released the Z6 it had a ton of sharpening on the image. Sony was in my eyes is just very detailed from the downsampling. Canon with their aggressive AA filter give a nice image feel at the expenses of detail which many like and some don't - just different philosophies.
  5. They'll probably buy an A7SIII and see if they can copy what they've done now it's been released 😉
  6. So far only with the active stabilisation mode that records gyro
  7. Somebody's going to get a slap on the wrist 🤣
  8. Tony and Chelsea Nothrup did a wildlife shoot of just stills and the battery died in an hour! The R5 is DOA
  9. I think Sony has been holding back the A7SIII waiting to see what Canon releases. I think if not for this R5, we would be seeing an incremental update from them. Sony will have to do even better than the R5 spec wise to stop people from jumping ship and coming back to Sony as if its even level it won't stop a mass exodus. I'm a current Sony user and have been for the last few years, but for 9 years prior to that was a Canon faithful. The only thing that can stop me from going back to Sony is their body prices. I don't NEED the R5 but i'm looking to buy one, the R6 may well suit my needs better as long as the joystick, dual card slots, EVF and battery remain, and If even the R6 price is ridiculous then I'll stick with my Sony A7III and add an A7RIV. Exciting times ahead
  10. I wouldn't be surprised if this R5 is the reason Samsung came out the business - because Canon bought/license their tech in order to compete with Sony. It's the only way I see that Canon out of nowhere coming out with a monster of a camera that blows away everyone else when they don't do chips or sensors and don't live on the bleeding edge of Tech, something that Samsung has been doing for so long now
  11. [The ZM F2 is superb but close focus limited.] I experience this also though its the norm for rangefinder lenses. I use a close focus adapter on mine which brings down to about 28cm which is great, at 1.4 and minimum focus distance subject may be a bit hazy but from f1.8/2 its back to razor sharp. [I should do a comparison between that and the ZE F2.0 one day.] That would interest me
  12. Amazing lens!! Contrasty with high micro contrast giving nice 3D rendering. As stated above its sharp but not clinically so. Some CA wide open. Beautiful rendering. The only 35s better from Zeiss are the 35mm 1.4 Milvus and ZM 1.4 (My favourite 35 of any brand)
  13. The worst news. Very surprised it stood up.
  14. Apparently 47 megapixels, Cine Mode video and 4K. I'll wait until official info comes out before I make an assessment but from a design point of view no tilt or flip screen is a pity.
  15. If they have a license that cover h.264 at any other frame rate on the camera, surely that covers 24p as well ?? So the only reason it wouldn't be on there is to simply cripple the camera(S).
