They expect you to pay oodles for G or GM full-frame glass that is completely unbalanced on crop bodies. And if that's the case, if i was going to give up IBIS on a new purchase, a DSLR would be a cheaper option that offers great CAF instead of the Sony/Fuji offer.

What is field curvature, and why should you care? It's fairly standard to shoot at 4K even when your output resolution is 1080p and downsize it, because of the increase in quality. It is way under hyoed. Sony's controls and menus are a headache, and forgetting what you map to extra, little, awkwardly placed buttons can't be that fun either. Fujinon glass is overpriced and is far from perfect. I was going to give him my XT-3, but I knew it would scare him away and back to his phone..... Is the X-A5 the same sensor as the X-T20? @T3 are you seriously considering mounting the 50-100 on an aXXXX body?

Maybe TV systems. I also specifically measured the rolling shutter figures for the G95, X-T30 and a6400 specifically so that it's clear that the Sony has fallen behind the market, despite its impressive detail levels. For me, it's cheaper to buy another Fujifilm body than to sell everything and go into another system. But when you look at mirrorless you can have very fast and accurate CAF in both stills and videos. I won't waste my time probing any further. The best high-end camera costing more than $2000 should have plenty of resolution, exceptional build quality, good 4K video capture and top-notch autofocus for advanced and professional users.

The Crane 3S is a heavy-duty gimbal designed for serious projects. That 6K video and downsampling takes up valuable processing power and data transfer, hence you have the rolling effect.Good details -> Skewed objects.You have to use the crop mode which actually uses about 8MP of the sensor (1.8x crop) to get reasonable rolling shutter.So pick your poison. One thing I don't understand, the X-T30 review states the 1080p video quality is much better than the a6400 - Why? While reviewers are constantly using different gear, the rest of us are adapting to the system(s) we own. Your kitty photos will never be the same!-The 18-135mm lens. Most of the grip side of the camera is occupied by buttons, leaving little space for a user’s thumb and in the case of someone wearing a glove, none at all. The XT-30 has a faster read-out and as good or better 4K quality, but inferior video AF and a 15 minute recording time. Instead you're just firing off chaff and trying to deflect. Out of the two it would be a6400 for me because of the AF and sigma primes. EwanMc I didn't say the A55 was better than the A77m2 I was saying the A55 was better than the A6400 body and Sony already had small body with a better grip which they should have used!

The OV32B offers 32MP stills, 8MP pixel-binned stills in low-light, and 1080p video at up to 180 fps. Try not to lose too much sleep over Fuji's lens offering, MILC man.

Maybe not a huge jump in quality, maybe there is, but the point is I shoot more and have fun with the Fuji. The Sony A3000 does have a decent 20 MP Sensor, and good Handgrip! Absolutely Dantist.

You constantly claim, that "the path to FF" is a big plus, but you don't acknowledge that it's also a big compromise for users who want to use APS-C only, and want to have a compact and lightweight system. A mount had fast APS-C zooms and long zooms that were affordable, but e mount doesn't get any of those. I've personally used the Sony A6000, A6300 and Fujifilm X-T2.
