    The Sony A7S is the camera Nikon should have made. If it had a better lens selection, I might have jumped over. I got a NEX EA50 because I can adapt my Nikon glass. It’s an awesome combination. I’m probably going to buy a Atomos Shogun and the A7S. I’ll keep both systems for a while,. I really don’t trust Black Magic at this point.

      True but you forget that Nikon needs to sell DSLR’s and they chose to make more of those instead of mirrorless cameras.

      They chose to make LOTS of variance of DSLR’s so people can keep using their NIKKOR lenses.

      • Ken Elliott

        I disagree. Nikon doesn’t “need” to sell a specific type of camera (DSLR), as long as they sell a profitable one. There are a lot of D700 owners who don’t consider the D800 to be the successor to the D700. They want a 12-16MP version and have no need for 36 or 24MP. The common request is for a D800 with a D4 (16MP) sensor, or even the D3S (12MP) sensor. If Nikon offered a camera like the Sony A7S, but with an F-mount, they’d be there. Heck, the Nikon V1 proved they have all the technology to build a pretty good mirrorless camera – all they need is a larger sensor and F-mount.

          Nikon Df? But no video.

      Read a bit about Blackmagic of how bad things were getting via reviews and delays in the past. I actually believed that it was gonna be perfect, yet it does compete in terms of pricing more than previously anticipated ($3000 > $4000)

    Definitely getting the a7s… a7s has CRAZY iso. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td_YyG00cOI
    Not gonna sell my d800 though. Sony actually grew some balls and gave us what we wanted. I’m not saying i’m switching to sony…. I just hope this puts a foot in NIKONS asses.
