    Let's just start by saying that I'm Pentax user, so not affilitations to Sony. I was quite pleased with your reviews in the past and video courses related to different technicques, however, It seems, at least to me, that your reviews are quite biased against Sony. It is little bit strange that your review of Sport Camera is based on taking photos of Pride Parade participants. Not a single photo of any sport - not counting few guys "playing" recreational tennis. Watching reviews from well known and respected Sports photographers, camera is praised for autofocus, speed, DR.....and quite different conclusions than yours. Not sure what is going on, but kind of loosing credibility with such reviews. Again, no intention to troll or be rude, just my observation.

The D850 is the culmination of decades of SLR refinement - the Z7 is the companies first full frame mirrorless - but it costs even more!

This thing destroys the competition in many ways - GH5 beaten for video and ergonomics and the fuji optics are up there with the best of full frame!

Nikon Z lenses - are they better than F Mount?

Nikon has been promoting the larger diameter and shorter flange distance of the Z mount, and how this will allow more lens designs, easier design, better optics, faster AF and edge to edge sharpness. But are they actually better?
