cirtapfotos: I have used Samyang in the past. I have always liked their lenses. Will test this new Auto Focus 50mm on my D810. But to be honest other than the Otus, Sigma Art 50mm is the best.

I don't think these lenses will be offered to DSLRs but only to mirrorless FF/crop sensors.

This is an entry level camera. Try not to expect too much. For its intended market, it does a decent job.

Nukunukoo: Was able to try this on a wedding gig. To be fair, Canon's Log at daytime outdoor shots are good and grades well at 4K. But the price, the indoor, slightly dim shots at both 4K and 1080p are disappointing, not bad, but disappointing. At that price and the performance of my 4K RX100m3, I have to wonder why Canon made this camera in the first place.

+EVs simply raise the ISO and introduces more noise, I'm afraid.

I wonder if the RX10 II's price will drop? Basically, only the lens have changed.

Muster Mark: As technological progress inevitably slows, and digital cameras mature, as we are seeing happen, a meaningful commitment by manufacturers to maintain their products with software updates becomes an ever more important factor into the value of a camera. Its nice to see Panasonic doing this, as well as Olympus I think.

GoPro seems to be doing the same. They plan to roll out the new hardware with longer tech lifetimes than before but with a promised emphasis on software.

Is this a new 18MP sensor or is this the same DR-narrow older version?

I wonder if Samsung started with MFT to begin with, would fortunes be any different?

It's incredible to see that these cutouts were done using extremely high pressure jets of water...

No mic nor headphone port for the lower 2 models. Great.

Don't own a Sigma Foveon but tried one months back. When looking at how it resolves edges and the details, I was gobsmacked. Especially on post. It's exactly like resizing a Bayer image to a little over 1/3 its size. My only niggle was its performance in low light.

With its resolution and high speed capability, I won't be surprised if it uses the rx-10 II sensor.

It's unfortunate that Sigma is now releasing more lenses without OIS. I wonder if it has something to do with Nikon's lawsuit?

I wonder how big the lens would be for a FF equivalent? I know it's fast but I do hope it has OIS... FWIW, it's a great companion for the D500.

Apparently, some people here still want to carry a separate Video camera and a DSLR... =)

theparadoxy: Andrew Reid has a great article on this camera's video features. http://www.eoshd.com/2016/02/canon-80d-chicken-feed-at-the-mirrorless-banquet/

Actually, convergence is now here. Canon made every effort to improve Dual Pixel AF for video. I do Photo and Video for a living and it helps me immensely when one can do both real good. Especially if it had 4K (best for post edits) and Log, which this camera does not.
