Roughly 1000 beercan jokes for this thread flooded my brain, but then I forgot them all. Just as well I suppose.

I don't get it : )


This passage from the dpreview hands-on further solidifies my preconception that this is a nice little thing to hold (as opposed to the A6000):

In the hand, the a7C feels incredibly solid, thanks to what's called a magnesium alloy monocoque construction. It's sort of like what US auto manufacturers call 'unibody' construction, and the result is a camera that's free of creaks and flex and exudes a sense of quality.

This is the most expensive Sony camera so far limited to a 1/4,000 s max shutter speed and 1/160 s flash sync.

Reviews indicate SteadyShot performs worse than A7III.

I like the A6000. It is a bit plasticky compared to the A6400, but still, nothing wrong with the A6000.

Sure, it's highly individual. I liked the NEX-6 and I've liked the A7 cameras I've held.

I like the E 55-210 where most everybody says it isn't very sharp at the long end and dim like the subway and I don't generally have a problem with the older style E-batteries.

Courses for horses. Em, in case I randomly selected an appropriate English saying = )

After owning the original NEX 5, NEX 6, a3000, a6300 and now the a6600, the most solid by far is the a6600. It's not heavy, but feels very well built. I imagine the a7c feels as good, or better.

However, the best in-the-hand, most comfortable body is the plasticky, light weight a3000. While it disappoints in many, many ways, the a3000 has the best ergonomics of any Sony APS-C, E mount body.

You were watching different videos then I did. Nobody I watched made a big issue out of it being just 8-bit.

Highly unlikely! We can purchase without customs duties within the EU as we are in a customs union with the EU (until the end of 2020). The UK - Japan agreement is not a customs union.

I'd rather have a lighter more comfortable body. Hard, heavy items are poor qualities for hand held devices for me. The market seems to take the opposite view. I remember the A3000 handing worse than the A58 which is bit worse than the A65 and A57 for me.

A lot of folk asked for an E-mount camera in a A77/A77m2/A99m2 body - that would have been a great handling camera. But alas, Sony decided to incrementally improve the A7 mould.

Yup, that would suit me more than an "overpriced" compact. It's one of the things I like about the Canikon mirrorless cameras - their body shape is similar to their DSLR's and IMHO nicer to handle. It's subjective I suppose.

Still it is what it is and Sony is unlikely to change the body shape of the A7 range at this late point in time.

So far I feel, that only flattering issue for me comaring with a6500 is FF sensor.

Unfortunately in any practical sense I suspect you are.
