Some of my favorite images I've taken in the past decade were taken on the a6000 or even the NEX-6!

NEX-6 / Samyang/Rokinon 12mm:



Have to admit that I cheated a LITTLE on that image - Printed, it looked great, but on screen you could definitely see the noise from iso3200 on the NEX-6. I recently went back to those photos and, with the new AI noise reduction in Lightroom, cleaned photos like that up a little. Actually saved some images that I thought were ruined when I accidentally shot the Colosseum at 4am at 3200iso.

"Plastic" by means of "artistic" or of "plastic art".

"One would hardly know that the images taken in this thread were taken on cameras now considered by many to be too old to be used for good photography."

I've gone back over images made with the NEX-7 and re-converted from RAW using DxO Pure Raw. The difference is substantial and well worth the effort: the higher the ISO, the greater the difference, particularly when lifting shadows. Better and faster than the current Adobe offering too.

My first mirrorless camera was the NEX-7. There were few really good lenses for E-mount eleven years ago, so I used a Nikon mount Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f1.4 SL-II with a dumb adapter. I went out to take my first pictures with my new camera and the fog rolled-in - got these two birds. I have no idea what the settings were.

How time flies when you are having fun. Here are two from the 1993 Carl Zeiss 21/2.8 Distagon mounted on the 2012 Sony a99v. In manual focus land, most recent camera tech does not amount to such a great advance as makers would have you believe. The a99's EVF was a giant leap forward, as was its noise quality and even level (it shades the a9II below ISO 500). The camera came with IBIS and weighed less than 100 grams more than the a7rV. Sony's early sensors were just fabulous.

The early Sonys were well-respected for their colour, and they worked very well with the then-recent Zeiss lenses.

'One would hardly know that the images taken in this thread were taken on cameras now considered by many to be too old to be used for good photography.'

"With its larger individual 'pixels', the old a7R III actually produces significantly cleaner images than its more modern successors throughout our tested ISO range."

"Dynamic range is more of a mixed bag across the trio; there's no clear winner or loser, but we can safely say that things haven't conclusively moved on in the 6 years since the a7R III was launched."

"But evidently improvements in sensor tech - at least in terms of core stills image quality - have been slowing in recent years. Instead, we now see the likes of Sony marketing other features, like the speed of a sensor's readout, and its corresponding impact on burst shooting speed and video capture performance."

https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/news/its-official-new-cameras-are-not-getting-any-better

And it is all on display in any review of new cameras: AF speed, etc. My favourite camera for portraits is the (2012) a7r, much lighter at 465 grams. It has the same DR as the a7r3 below ISO 500. And the a99 lags just 1/2 stop behind them at ISO 100, and is virtually the same at ISO 50. Nicer noise quality too, lovely shutter, no sensor dust, articulated LCD. I beieve the early Sonys play better with heritage lenses too. Many loved the a900/a700 colour, etc. 'Progress' is not inevitable, often quite the contrary.
