Well you will be getting the basic ones, look back in this thread and there are links to custom recipes that may be of interest.



Shame you have to carry that weight around compared to what the capability of Fuji provides cheaper and lighter.

It could but its not revealed yet .As I said "speculative" specs.I'll believe them when its real.



M43 at 20mp would be close and Sony have a 40+mp sensor for M43.



They are progressing, wait and see.

The R1 is under development and bits and pieces have kinda been speculated on(like the R5 speculation)

This list could be close?

Its been talked about for a while without anything absolutely substantial being revealed.

The only thing Canon has said is they have a general slowdown due to Pandemic and some other issues.

Here are some "speculative" specs that have just surfaced.Is it too good to be true OR can a camera matching or close to these be real?

Approx. 85MP global shutter CMOS imaging sensor
Approx. 85MP at 20fps, 21MP at 40fps unlimited continued shooting
Full Sensor Large Quad Pixel Auto-focus technology
15.5 EV+ wide dynamic range
ISO 160-1638400
5-axis IBIS up to 9 stop
3.5 9.33MP 1280nit 10-bit WCG RGB-OLED touch screen with 120Hz AE-AF
9.44MP 120Hz SuperSpeed AE-AF electronic viewfinder
Price $8,500 in USA

Personally,I don't need something like this AND wouldn't pay that price.However,its not expensive for the capability!:lol:

The thread is about M/L market share of Japanese makers, they look to be a solid 5th at this point in time.

I deal in facts,so lets look at this profitable quarter.

But first the first profitable period,Late 2018 for the Z mount.EARLY adopters...0 to 4.5% CaCHING$ for Nikon.

The most recent quarter just happens to coincide with the EARLY adopter period of the Z6ii and Z7ii.

Funny thing is all new stuff enjoys this surge of sales...I'll look forward to the next quarters figures,they could be better,who knows?Maybe the faithful who didnt like the Z6/7 will ditch the dslr?

The reality is,these 2nd gen bodies should have come in 2018,When Nikon "redefined mirrorless" or whatever their marketing propaganda was.( i watched it live).
Late to the party while CaNony have been rocking and rolling along.

They under achieved.



Yes,for the moment.the big picture may be a different thing completely.

The Z mount was released in 2018...it went from 0 to 4.5% in the August to December period and has grown 3% in the next 2and a bit years!

Looks likes like GROWING to MEE,looks like slow growth to me!

So far, 30 months since the mount was launched,the Nikon faithful havent quite shown the faith that Nikon would have expected.

They have to be defensive,so what they say are only words at that moment.

Sony took plenty of CaNik customers,plenty of the Canon people kept using EF on Sony.Some have returned to Canon.I think Nikon expected plenty to return and not that many did.



With the contraction of the camera market,all the companies would have some concern.Plenty of brands have gone before.JIP have cut the Olympus staff by around half.Nikon relocated manufacturing to a lower cost country.It'll be interesting to see what happens over these next few years of a Covid influenced world.

Yes,probably contributes.The moving pictures of the Nikon dslrs fall short though.



All they do is add a little weight and length.Many report that the Dslr glass is better on the M/L bodies than on the Dslrs they used to use.Ofcourse its because of the updated processors.

The FTZ adapter costs plenty,i did read some scathing stuff about the price in the early days.

The figures are for mirrorless,Pentax dont make them anymore.

Pentax has 3% of Dslr market going on last years figures.That could increase with the newby when it arrives.

Upgrading to FF with $7G budget.

I know that weight well...Sigma Sports 150-600mm...the Beast!

Considering the A7Riv is a FF camera plus a crop camera, its good value.Subtract the cost of a crop body and the FF one is 2000ish(if purchased new)

EF isn't shut down though.

What Canon said is they are concentrating on R mount(a mass of glass coming this year,announcement will be huge).

Canon went on to say IF there is specific demand for EF gLass,they will make it.So when you look at what's available in EF(just from Canon 150million lenses) and the wide variety, the user base appears not to be asking for new stuff.Lots of Canon Dslr users haven't switched to R yet and may never, but they will continue to buy glass and the odd new body.

Nikons problem seems to be the sales of their new mount are not what they expected.Their track record in Milc isn't quite pristine, they abandoned their 1 series.The old once bitten cliche may tie into poor sales.Factor in their initial Z mirrorless bodies were deficient in a few areas and reasonably pricey.Of course they have now got new product to market, but this should have come in 2018.

Looking at the recent losses, anything is a possibility.Nikon have made public statements saying they expect to be in profit at the end of this fiscal year.I hope they can do it, i like the 2 Nikons that I use on occasion.

A recent look at market share of MILCs shows a poor uptake of Z system.

Sony 35%

Canon 30%

Fuji 12%

In the grave(JIP) 8%... used to come under Olympus

On life support, Nikon 7.5%

Lost....panasonic.

They are in the INFOtainment industry,they clickbait lots of people.I dont mind them but they do make errors.

Due to their popularity they get early access to the new gear,so its kinda acceptable to look at some of their content.

I'll look forward to the R1 which i expect to be priced at around what the A1 is.I'll expect that it will be better value but lets wait and see.

The 2 posted in this thread barely qualify.It looks to me that they were shot in the beginners session at that manmade wave park.Hence the "Tullamarine bathtub"reference.Tullamarine is the location in Melbourne(.The best thing about Melbourne is leaving!).

The Canon surfing YT is at Chopes(Teahupo'o)in Tahiti,its a tame day.Some days are 2 storeys high and very intense.People die there attempting to ride it.

And even more amateurs!...Canon provided a highly competent body at a fair price for the capability.A1 is too much.

I think Sony presents some new stuff thats quite good but the price is Overs....CaNik will come with their topDoggies sooner or later and these will be more than competitive.

A friend who is a veteran of 1500 weddings used a 5d mk1 for 13 years.When Canon said it was beyond repairing she bought a 6d,even though the Mk2 was available.The tool that does the job is the one that makes the $$$.

I won't be surprised by Ricoh going with this, they went with the little bro in the K3/3 which was a surprise.

I won't be surprised with the price going UP either.

---------- Post added 03-02-21 at 08:42 AM ----------



The 36mp was 3 years old when the K-1 was released,IF, the next FF comes in 2022 then its par for the course.

---------- Post added 03-02-21 at 09:08 AM ----------



When you consider the alternatives are FSI and the development of the processor is geared to BSI,then highly likely the 62mp is what they are working on.( right now?)

Anyone,with any camera can capture action shots.

However, its the shots you don't get that some people just don't understand.

The new Pentax body is the best thing since sliced bread, when it gets baked BTW.It catches up a bit to the other brands and we should see some great action.



Yes.

Meh to Astrotracer...Meh to pixel shift, as well!
