Well I saw it a day or two ago but it didn't really change my mind in anything. Yes, there are some people for whom the a7 bodies will be enough, but AF is still better on SLR. I still think some of his reasons are "gimmicks" like he identified and I really really don't agree that the EVF is better than OVF... Some of the things he claims don't exist on other cameras in fact exists... Also I dislike his presentation, so I didn't really like the video.

Not a professional wildlife or sports photographer.
I have tried a couple of Sony A series cameras and they are very good - but totally useless for my photography.
If your subject is stationery or completely inert then they have their advantages, for everything else the SLR/DSLR is better - that's why it was developed back in the 19th century.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

Wow that photog is excited!!!

I'll have to say he's spot on many of his "reasons" for his type of shooting application.

The EVF have "whatyouseeiswhatyouge​t" aka wysiwyg is an unbelievable gift when you see it in the viewfinder instead of rear LCD. As I've adopted Micro 4/3 systems I know the wonderful attributes but on the other hand the m43 has limitations of high iso performance.

I've used the Sony A7s so I totally know why he is so excited. No chimping since you know exactly what you get before you press the shutter. The high ISO capabilities is freakishly fantastic !!!

In a matter of time I'll be passing on my Micro 4/3 system ( Olympus EM-5 and panasonic gh3) to my 8 and 5yr old daughters. Not in a hurry to change my secondary system. The A7s is definitely an incredible camera for vid and still (slow/static) moving photography.

So I take it your car is using those new square wheels then right? Vastly superior for,... something... And so much better than those useless old round things.

And i bet you're also still using those lenses made from ground and polished glass elements that we've been using to bend and focus light for hundreds of years. Such old and antiquated technology....

No chimping since you know exactly what you get before you press the shutter.

When you're shooting at 10 frames per second, there's no way to know exactly what you get on every frame unless you chimp.

Some birds, such as hummingbirds, beat their wings so rapidly that the human eye will never see exactly what position the wings are in until after the picture is taken. Same thing with leg positions for horses (or deer) running at full speed.

Hence, the need for chimping still exists, regardless of what camera you are using.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Have you ever played with a sony A77mk2???? That is a camera that is not getting alot of attention simply because its Sony.

I'm extremely heavily invested in Canon. I bet for most soccer mom/dads would buying a Sony A77mk2 they would get very similar keeper rates in this mirrorless camera. After testing one I'd say its extremely impressive at 12fps too!!!!!
