Quote:Why do you say the Sony is dead? I do agree there are gaps in their lenses, performance and selection. However, in terms of overall sheer performance, it seems from all the MILC reviews I read the a6300 and to a lesser extend the a6500 are the benchmarks to which others are compared to.
I haven't ruled out a Fuji x-t20, but as you mention, it's not exactly compact. That was the only down fault I found with my friends X-Pro. Size wise it was encroaching SLR land.
What are your thoughts on the Pany kit I mention? It is hard to beat that for size. Also, why are they still at 16Mp? That seems behind the times. Do they have manufacturing issues?
What Klaus is saying is that Sony APS-C doesn't make real sense, Sony considers it a secondary low quality system and there are no high quality dedicated APS-C lenses in Sony world, the kit is crap so are other native Sony APS-C lenses, if you want good quality your only option is using full frame lenses or third party lenses (like Canon and Nikon) via adapter. Doing this you will lose all the weight advantage of the system.
Would you move systems to use such a kit lens ?
check the performance of their 16mmf2.8 prime
The camera body is good of course but that's not everything, why Sony still neglecting APS-C I don't know, maybe they are convinced people going APS-C will buy nothing more than the kit lens...
