The 10 Main Differences Between the Nikon D850 and Sony A9

nikon d850 vs sony a9

The Nikon D850 is the most recent high-end DSLR on the market. Not only does it include interesting updates such as a new 45MP BSI sensor but it also inherits some of the company’s top technology such as, for example, the AF system seen on the D5 and D500. With this new model, Nikon’s goal was to merge the quality of a high resolution sensor and the speed of a sports camera into a single, high performance body.

But how does it compare to the innovations in technology seen on today’s mirrorless cameras? We can try to answer this question by looking at one of the most recent and powerful models, the Sony A9.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 vs Panasonic Lumix GH4 – The Complete Comparison

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 has been one of the most popular mirrorless camera since its release in late 2013. It was my workhorse for almost two years while working as an event photographer in Italy and without a doubt, one of the first mirrorless cameras to attract professional photographers looking for something smaller than traditional DSLR systems. Last but not least, it is also the camera that marked the end of the Olympus DSLR line-up.

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 is more popular in the filmmaking community thanks to its professional video specifications but it is also capable of producing excellent results for stills. Released in 2014, it introduced many innovations in the Lumix range including DfD autofocus and Ultra HD. In fact, it was the first mirrorless camera capable of recording 4K internally and showed how serious Panasonic was about designing a professional hybrid tool capable of delivering superior results for stills and video.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 II vs Panasonic GH5 – Five key aspects analysed

Updated on: October 30th, 2018

Three years ago, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and Panasonic Lumix GH4 set a new standard, not only for the Micro Four Thirds segment but for the mirrorless market as well. They introduced a number of innovations that had never before been seen on a consumer product, but even more importantly, they proved to the masses that a compact system camera had the potential to be a professional tool. The OM-D E-M1 mark II and Lumix GH5, released in late 2016 / early 2017, are the culmination of that potential.

Samyang 50mm f/1.2 vs Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 – The complete comparison

If you are looking for a portrait lens for the Fujifilm X series, the first choice that many photographers would recommend is the XF 56mm f/1.2. Released two years ago, it was the first lens designed specifically for portraits by Fujifilm and is one of my favourites from the brand.

Before that, the only viable option was the XF 60mm f/2.4 semi-macro lens released alongside the X-Pro1 in 2012. Today the choice for portrait photography has increased with the addition of the 56mm f/1.2 APD, the XF 90mm f/2 and the cheaper XF 50mm f2 (see our XF 50mm vs 56mm vs 60mm comparison here).

However up until last year the system was lacking an alternative from third-party manufactuers. This is where Samyang comes in with its 50mm f/1.2 which was released in 2015.
