A bit dated, a7r4 is a better investment.


Your Vauxhall is a bit dated

Bugatti Veyron is a better investment.

You’re right about it being a bit dated, but comparing it to the A7R IV makes no sense at all!

I disagree. Your money is better invested in a Hasselblad H6D-400c MS, circa £40,000.

How does this compare to the FujiFilm X-T30? A lot of deals around that at the moment

Imho great camera but not great price. Was £609 after cash back this June. Yes I know 'time machine this' and 'what about today' that, but once something goes down in price and new models come out (or are themselves discounted like the A7iii for £1189 this black Friday) then it doesn't make sense to pay more

I love my A7ii I paid 609 for. I'd never pay more

That's a smaller APS-C sensor camera compared to this full frame sensor if that matters to you. Personally I think it's useful to know which lenses you are likely to want to use. That'll dramatically change the cost of either system. I'm a Sony shooter, but advised my missus to get the XT20. It's a great camera, lots of direct controls. The XT30 appears to add a joystick over the direction buttons and better autofocus. I advised my missus to get the XT20 with the 18-55 over the XT30 with the cheaper kit lens due to the lens reviews. We'll see how that pans out.

A camera body at near launch price that will only go down in value is not an investment.
Used is around that price so great brand new!

Not exactly comparable... his suggested cameras were made by the same company just different versions
Does anyone on hotukdeals have a used Sony a7s they are looking to give away to a poor northerner? Would love that camera for my trip to Iceland but can’t afford it even 2nd hand never mind a lens

The A7 IV has a very limited market, there's not many professionals that need 60Mp and the processing time in Lightroom with images that size won't make them more productive. Sometimes less is more and in the case of this camera I wouldn't hesistate to buy it over the IV which is a camera that doesn't make sense to most people.You need specfic requirements to be using that camera.

He suggested a camera model that doesn't make sense for most professionals, that camera is for very specific workloads. It's amazing but just doesn't make sense for most pros. It's only comparable to this deal in terms of brand and model number, the people who would buy a IV wouldn't buy most other models and brands. The IV is a very different camera to this one. I don't see the comparison at all, because it's just not there. I can say that most people who would be in the market for a mirrorless camera like this one wouldn't be in the market for a IV.

Exactly and there's no comparison between a MKII and MKIV, the MKIV is undoutably progress but not any more realistic use over this camera. You'd need to be doing specific very high resolution photography, the added processing time only makes sense to those people who are doing that sort of photographic work i.e not the majority of professionals.

I understand that may be the case, but I provided my post in reply for informative purposes, it doesn't matter to me what his intention is, I can only be responsible for my intention and that is to educate whereby I have the authority to do so. If he's a troll that's his business it has no effect on me and not a consideration in my reply to him.

I can refer you to many reviews of the MKIV whereby they state the camera is essentially overkill for most professional workloads. You can raise semantics of all the extra features, but in practical terms when you have to work with a 60Mp image and process it, when you can do the same with 24Mp the time saved in the course of a professional day is massive and yes you get the results you want with a lesser specification of camera as this one. You buy the tools for the job not because it's the latest tool with more features than you can use and it's not money well spent when it costs you time. No one can buy time as we're all too aware.

If I could afford any camera and therefore money was no object I wouldn't buy the most expensive camera with every feature imaginable, because it wouldn't be the correct tool for the job unless I was doing the specific photography that required 60Mp resolution.

I thought we established that when I used the word 'exactly' a few posts back. However I wasn't interested in that analogy in my replies so this is kind of a moot debate. As I said I don't find that analogy useful helpful or descriptive of a proposed equivalance. I can't really comment any further in regard to this as I wasn't interested in it in the first place.

I was waiting for this predictable comment, you could have used the equally morose "I bet you're fun at parties" line. In answer to your question, if you mean I have replied with rationale logical replies and this some how means I am a social outcast, I would counter it means that the standard of conversation and debate is rather lacking in today's society and you have attributed an unintended meaning to my posts, continued with this line of thought when your misinterpretation was explained to you. I have only replied in kind to what you have presented. We were in agreement many posts ago but for reasons best known to you, you have pursued a debate with me. I can be clear I was making absolutely no consideration of the Vauxhall - Buggati false equivalence and had no intention of discussing it. I was making a comment about the MKII and MKIV versions of these cameras, if some one wants to compare them to cars for the purposes of false comparison that is up to them. I have no interest in it.

I remember Dixons. Used to be one at Heathrow. And my high Street. And every high Street. Wonder what happened to them. They imported boxes of electronics from the far East, whacked on a large mark up and would use "misleading facts" to try and trick you into paying for them!

Your A7r4 would lose more than the entire value of this camera in about 2 months you turnip.
