Sony Wins 4 Awards From DPReview in 2017

I am not very surprised about DPReviews selections for their awards this year. Sony cleaned up and the Sony a7RIII dominated, but I’m not sure it deserved too with the bugs I have experienced. It’s a great camera, but it needs a few firmware updates to be a stable camera that professional can rely on. I haven’t experienced any issues with firmware 1.01 yet, but I haven’t used it enough to form an opinion about the update. The Sony a7RIII is a winner so far, but I think Sony might have rushed it to market a bit too soon. The really didn’t want to lose customers to the Nikon D850, but plenty would have waited.

The Sony RX10 IV is a great camera and one of the best gifts for someone looking to step up from a camera phone or point and shoot without committing to a system. The extreme telephoto lens attached to the Sony RX10 Mark IV is unmatched and the camera is one of a kind in many ways, but it is on the expensive side.

As for the Sony 16-35mm f2.8mm GM it is the sharpest wide angle zoom currently available and while I might have picked a different lens for lens of the year this is probably the most accessible specialized lens that wowed this year. DPReview did a pretty good job with their list this year and you can read all the details here.
