Can't take a picture with a dead battery.

you own a smart phone by any chance? Pretty much like a sony camera, top it off before you're out for the day, when you get home, put it on the charger (it can be charged like a phone). Your phone typically has just enough juice for the day, do you bring spare batteries? Well a sony camera is the similar, has just enough juice for the day, and you can bring spares.

of course if smart phone battery life is unacceptable, then you trade off the tech for a dumb phone that lasts for days on a charge.

That's funny. Guess the metadata of those bird shots got screwed up. :D

In my opinion, Nikon is the biggest loser with the 5D4. Sony still has mirrorless going for it. But why would anyone new to a system pick Nikon. Canon has superior lenses and now the one area where the bodies were lacking has mostly caught up.

Why would anyone buy Nikon now that Canon are nearly as good?

Maybe because the Nikon D810 is still better is certain areas especially for still photographers and is almost $1200 to $1400 cheaper.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

D810 is still real good and a bargain comparatively
D750 is nice, only FF DSLR with tilt screen
105 F1.4
200-500
24-70f2.8 VR
28-300 that's not excessively big
midrange primes
AF linked spot metering

Welcome to the Internet. Every time I see someone talk about switching brands I just think they are either loaded financially, or they clearly don't own any glass.

Pretty much. I don't own any super telephoto lenses, but I own enough glass that switching would be financially painful.

Are you fricken kidding ME. This has to be a Joke. Every serious photographer that I spoke with that dumped the Sony says it was due to inconsistent at best AF performance....its the worst feature of the camera....the 2nd worst feature is the lack of quality glass from the MFG.....and we wont even talk about the horrible Horrible customer service and time to wait for a warranty repair
