The trolls know all of this or they would be using those brands now rather than hanging out in Canon Forums. No fed troll ever went away. Just ignore them.game changing, game changing, game changing, blah blah..
But show photos from 7d1 and 7d2 to people, and they' won't recognize what camera is where.
What is really game changing, sony A7 or a7s. Or new 5-axis sensor stabilization in A7 II. Btw it cost as much as 7d2.
OK, so I've read the rest of your posts. You obviously haven't used those A7* bodies in the real world or payed attention to the lens lineup. While they have their merits, and in several ways NUKE Canon, they also have their faults.
The AF is HORRIBLE- I mean I'd rather shoot manual with them than try to use the AF. There are zero improvements in the A7m2 as far as AF - they tweaked the firmware only.
The A7R shutter slap might as well the a full-blown thunder clap, is so fracking loud, I've never heard anything like it in digital.
The IBIS is wicked, I agree, and blatantly demonstrates that Canon and Nikon have been ripping us off for years charging extra for IS in lenses when they could have done IBIS. But the bottom line is that it doesn't offer "better" IS, just IS across the board with all lenses.
The Sony FE lens lineup is severely gimped- so much so that no pro can use it IMO. There is NO F2.8 STANDARD ZOOM, NO F2.8 70-200 ZOOM, and the ZEISS 24-70mm F4 is so soft I'd rather use the kit lens. Sure, you can bolt on an adapter, but at that point, why not use something else with better AF? The 55mm prime is wicked, and the 35mm F2.8 is nice and small, but that hardly makes up for a complete lack of zooms.
Bottom line: Yes, A7k lineup is shiny, but not ready for prime time, not even close. Fix the AF (must be at least as good as the A6000), release F2.8 zooms (or at least fix the garbage Zeiss 24-70mm F4), and add a 2nd card slot. The A9 should be nice next year and take care of the AF and card issues, but that lens issue is going to plague the system for many more years. While the IBIS offers no significant advantage in the short term, it does make Canon and Nikon look silly, which is good:)
Agreed. I normally don't feed the troll but in this case pretty much all of what I wrote was my own personal frustration on the topic. If Canon was actually innovating I wouldn't have to be looking at Sony. Even without a viable FE standard zoom I will be changing over to the A9. I'm tired of getting ripped off by Canon paying for image stabilization that should be in body. I'm also tired of subpar low-light performance. I'm also tired of subpar dynamic range performance. I'm also tired of lugging around heavy gear with antiquated mirror boxes. I'm annoyed I have to do that though. I am excited about getting the A9. I'll fill the gaps with the Alpha adapter. My back will be much happier with the lighter kit. The completely silent shutter will be nice as well. I'm sure the autofocus won't be on par with the 7d Mark 2, but having used the a6000 I'm sure it will be good enough.
