    I cringe everytime I see a camera + lens on sale @ the Qantas Store these days..

    I used to own this camera before I upgraded to Sony mirrorless.

    The camera was released in 2014, so pretty old.

    It takes great photos with a high dynamic range.

    I wouldn't recommend it to anyone using it for video, as it has a very bad and slow autofocus system in video mode. It also only shoots at 1080p.

    The camera also has been superseded by the D780, but retails at $3900.

      Hi mate, if you don't mind me asking, which Sony do you use and anything you miss from the DSLR system?

      •  

        Dslr will always be superior to mirroless. Do you see any war or sports photographer using mirrorless? I don't think so. However, for casual use it's fantastic. I own both btw.

        •  

          Hah. Try the Sony a9. Makes sports DSLRs essentially obsolete

          •  

            @qvinto: So you are saying the A9 can take the abuse and weather proofness for sports like winter sports, Dakar motorsports or any events that are just extreme. Mind you i have the A9 and i know it would not be up to task for professionals. All i am saying is that dslr still exist for a reason. Sure their market share has diminished due to mirrorless, but it will not be extinct anytime soon.

            •  

              @Volution: May be if you meant extreme condition sitting on a platform taking photos (like at winter Olympic events). Adventurers who move around in extreme conditions prefer to carry lighter gear nowadays, often choosing lighter, smaller sensor mirrorless such as the Micro 4/3 from Olympus and Panasonic.

            •  

              @Volution: OK fair enough, the A9 build quality is lacking. It is essentially in the same body as the cheapest full frame camera in their line-up. Performance wise though in AF and IQ it is better than the any DSLR at the moment. And silent too.

              Maybe Sony will stop being cheap and finally make a truly robust body once Canon and Nikon release mirror-less pro sports cameras. Hopefully sooner than that though

              However i don't see how "Dslr will always be superior to mirroless" as you said. DSLR's are already inferior in most aspects except for body build quality of the 1D/D5 lever cameras. This could just as easily be made better on mirror-less as it is on dSLR.

        Sony A7iii

        Pros of mirrorless:
        - Focus points are pretty much the whole screen, and therefore more versatility in setting up shots that aren't just in the centre. Also helps in fast action objects (eg. sports)
        - Electronic view finder (EVF) which helps see your shot in "live view", compared to having to review the photo in a dslr and adjust setting post picture.
        - Lightweight, which helps if you're carrying gear the whole day (eg. travelling).
        - Autofocus in video mode tends to be better on mirrorless.

        Disadvantage of mirrorless:
        - Lenses are wayyyy more expensive. The price of an F4 mirrorless lens is about the same as a f2.8 dslr equivalent. This is due to the young mirrorless lens market.

        My opinion is that if you generally take only pictures and not videos, stick with dslr. I miss having the option to buy affordable 1.4 to 2.8 lenses.

        Feel free to reply here or DM me if you have further questions :)

          For me:
          Disadvantages

          — Electronic view finder , which offer only a pre-processed image, which while useful in giving an emulation of what the sensor will deliver adds an unecessary layer of abstraction.

          •  

            @terrys: This is a flawed argument. The EVF gives you a realistic preview of what the photo which is what matters most. The Optical viewfinder (OVF) does not. You already know what the scene looks like "optically" by just looking at the scene directly with your eyes. What is the point of an OVF image that does not render what the scene would look like taken as a photo? OVF are especially useless in low light, shallow depth of field shots, challenging white balance scenarios etc. The only real advantage is less energy usage

          Not really if you compare similar spec lenses.
          Th reason you can get cheaper DSLR lenses is that they are often older designs which are not as high performance as the new ones. Have a look at the performance of your affordable 50mm 1.4 lenses against the modern versions. Sure they are cheaper and smaller but also perform much worse

          Regardless you can get high performance and relatively affordable lenses from Sigma for mirror-less mounts as a cheaper alternative to the native manufacturers lenses

    Got downvoted to hell, but why would you buy into a DSLR system now when Camera companies are moving all their R&D into mirrorless?

    Sony is going with the E Mount
    Nikon is moving to the Z Mount
    Canon is moving to the EF Mount

    If you think these camera companies are going to develop technology and lenses for an old system, you are insane. This camera is 6 years old.

    Put your money into a system where it'll allow for some future proofing. But no doubt i'll be downvoted by salty DSLR owners again.

    •  

      Agreed. DSLRs are obsolete

      "would you buy into a DSLR system"

      With Nikon, because you have over 50 years of lenses to choose from.
      Still, I'd rather a $500 camera with a $3000 lens than a $3000 camera with a $300 lens…

      •  

        You can have your cake and eat it too. The Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless both have adapters for the Nikon DSLR lenses. I have no experience with Nikon, but on my Canon R, my adapter allows me access and choice to the vast range of EF lenses (new and used). In most cases, they perform even better than they did on the DSLRs they were designed for, correcting aberration etc, due to the new and more powerful processing power of the newer mirrorless camera.
        So buying the DSLR now will lock you into the legacy lenses. Buying the mirrorless successor, let you have the best of both world!

        •  

          True enough, but physics hasn't changed and the older lenses still function well. You are surely throwing away much of the advantage of lightness with an adapter, tho Canon have always put out nice untis and lenses.

          The one advantage a do see wis the removal of the one problem Canon always suufered from in comparison to the Nikon and Pentax competition in film days, their heavy shutter adding vibration.

      Correction, Canon is moving into the RF mount. Their new range of lenses are some of the best in the market at the moment (photography reviewers opinions).

    Hey guys! I own a D750 with F/1.4 Sigma 35/50/135 (1.8) as well as Fuji X-E3 with native fuji glass. Fuji is sharper and has better JPEGS which means less editing. Another drawback of buying D750 for its full frame sensor is the limitation of the shutter speed - wouldn't go 1/8000 which means you can't have your expensive lens collection wide open during bright outdoor locations or you can't use off camera flash systems to overpower the sun with their AD600/AD400 on fullpower. Even the FUJI doesn't go beyond 1/4000th of a second but it's a small camera and easy to carry around.
