I'm waiting for the gold plated one for $23,000. It's going to cost more so it has to be better.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Ooh, maybe I can sell Wifey's Ferrari Civic for $100k. Just a quick rebadge and paint job and I'll be set.

That's no different than the 1D-x=0C to 40C, 5DIII=0C to 40C, or any other Canon camera.

I'm confused, it's marketed as a DSLR but under the specifications it states it has an electronic view finder:

[Electronic viewfinder]
Type: Electronic viewfinder Screen size: 1.3 cm (0.5 type)
Total number of dots: 2,359,296 dots
Frame coverage: 100% Magnification: 0.71 × with 50 mm lens at infinity, –1 m–1 (dioptre)
Eye Point: Approximately 27 mm from the eyepiece, 22 mm from the eyepiece frame at –1 m–1 Diopter Adjustment: –4.0 m–1 to +3.0 m–1 (dioptre)

Is this a mirrorless system in a camera body like a DSLR?

Did you say the same thing when the Sony SLT-A99 was originally released? The advantage with a digital viewfinder is that the viewfinder can also do ISO 25600 making it a lot easier to see the subject when shooting in the dark. And it doesn't much hurt that the viewfinder can do focus peaking too.

You can get more information about the Sony original here:

Nice try with the underexposed "artistic" product photos on the website. Seems like they want to make it seem mysterious so not everyone instantly realizes it's a rebadged Sony.

I would like to know who would pick this over a 1dx, D4, 5d3, D800, or Df?? I'm not being a smart ass, I SERIOUSLY would like to know from someone who buys this.

Probably someone in Dubai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, or Moscow who already has a 300 foot yacht, 12 ferraris, a few helicopters, and a burning desire to spend just a little bit more money on something that is marketed as high-end. I doubt m/any professional photographers will actually be buying this.
