game changing, game changing, game changing, blah blah.. Nobody can look at an image created with a sony sensor, without looking at the metadata, and say, wow look at that picture, it sure must have been taken with a sony or nikon camera. Yet we are lead to believe that you can't take a usable image, let alone a good one, unless you are using a sony or nikon camera.
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.
That's not "what people are saying". All that people are saying, 0.2 stops better Hi ISO or 14% of this or that or a few more AF fields ... are NOT game changing.
An compact camera with a fantastic full-frame sensor in a box half the size and weight of any previously used boxes ... with 80% more resolution and better low ISO DR and image quality than those older, larger boxes ... with image capturing capability and user interface on par or better than those older, fatter boxes ... without any moving parts inside, more robust, more durable, immune to misalignments of components ... with zero vibrations, zero noise ... with stabilizer working with all lenses ... with a viewfinder that shows the image exactly as it will be captured, working even in extremely low light levels ... that's a game changer to me. Looking forward to the Sony A9.
-A smaller camera is not a better camera, bigger cameras carry bigger lenses better.
-A DSLR currently has much better, faster AF, more accurate AF. Which means using a mirror, which means a bigger camera. A little mirrorless camera cannot keep up with sports or wildlife which makes the low ISO (which sports or wildlife photographers hardly use) DR irrelevant.
-5 Axis image stabilization with no moving parts inside?
-An electronic viewfinder is irrelevant to me because I can use the in camera meter to nail my exposure 99% of the time. Also, a lot of times I shoot with flash and my ambient light is very underexposed and I still want to see what is going on in the frame.
With all of this excellent image quality coming out of these little sony cameras, the only benefit you get from them is at low ISO with a still subject. And both of those things are almost useless to me.
