I'm just STILL wondering about decent mid-grade lens options for emount. I'd say especially for ASP-C, but I think that horse has left the barn. The upcoming 24mm is a start. Good dual use (FF and ASPC), good size (IQ is TBD). Need others.

If you are going to use a lens that size, why go with a body that small?

Danlo: Cant believe all the anti-gay comments here. When are people going to spend their energy on something more important than hating two adults loving eachother?
When are people going to wake up and realise that religion just leads to hate? I hope and wish in the deepest depths of my heart that humanity will one day see a world full love, instead of religion and hate.

"When are people going to wake up and realise that religion just leads to hate? I hope and wish in the deepest depths of my heart that humanity will one day see a world full love, instead of religion and hate."

You will be waiting a long time, because it's the nature of people. Religion is just a tool for those who wish to use it to negative ends. Stalin was not religious. Hitler not traditionally so. Alexander the Great wasn't, and Napolean didn't ride over Europe on the back of religion. etc. etc.

This is a naive sentiment, but I realize it's a common social media one, so you are certainly not alone in the error.

ipecaca: If you think of it, gay couples are more environment-friendly, they don't produce more people.

Perhaps you are joking, in which case, ignore the below. If you are serious, though:

Here's a harsh reality for a socialist west -- if you don't have kids, then there's no one to earn a living for when you want social support.

But not everyone will stop having kids. Certainly militant populations now sweeping through Iraq and Syria, or northern Africa, are more than happy to add to the population of the world, but their kids aren't going to support you in your dotage.

Having children is not a moral evil.

LukeDuciel: the more I look at the ZE 35 and the 90 macro, the more I doubt the point of moving to sony a ff system.

as a Nikon D800 user, my whole system bulk is actually comparable to the a7 + good glasses.

Smaller if you don't make 2.8 only means ... you didn't make a 2.8 zoom.

keeponkeepingon: Dang I had hoped pricing/availability would be announced at CP+ instead of just another "teaser".

(I'm considering the 28mm for my A6000 as an alternative to the SEL35F18)

That's what interests me -- how is the 28/2, and how are the adapters. If the adapters retain reasonable center sharpness, then it might be a nice little mini-kit

kodos: The more I see how the lens situation is panning out the more glad I am that I went Micro 43rds (for my shooting style/subjects). The lenses are huge on FF Mirrorless. Though I am sometimes wondering if the Fuji mirrorless system might have been a good compromise instead. But I love my little Olympus bodies and lenses.

I think I'd rather get a FF DSLR system as a complement to my M43 setup, and have the best of both worlds when I need it.

But for those who love FF Mirrorless, I am glad that Sony is about to unleash some more lenses! It was the primary thing holding me back from pulling the trigger.

I still find the Fuji lenses + bodies pretty large, compared to m43.

I still have a NEX6 for adapted lenses, but I am really just not excited about most Sony lenses -- either too low quality (or aperture not fast enough), or too high price. Slim pickings in the middle. I am interested in the 28/2, and the quality of the adapters. That one might extend my dalliance with Sony, while I wait for more mid-range lenses.

Canon is not selling this in my market, so they can go pound sand.

qwertyasdf: I have said this many times, all mirrorless companies are doing something wrong...why are there no affordable ultra wide angles?!?!!?!

This is except Canon's 11-22mm, and it's also the reason the EOS M is my most used camera.
Fuji & Sony's options are too expensive & bulky. Olympus's 9-18 is expensive given it's quality.

Do they even know their target market? Travelers would adore a lightweight ultra wide setup.

I don't understand this post. Oly's 9-18mm (18-36 equivalent) vs. Canons EF-M 11-22 (18-35mm), and they are nearly the same price, with the Oly cheaper used than the Canon is new (it is easy to find the Oly used -- much harder on the Canon)

Yes, disappointment here. I'd like a better body for the awesome 22mm lens to attach to.

Damien Demolder: Do readers in the USA feel deprived that the EOS M3 isn't coming to America? Maybe you don't care either way, or aren't interested in CSC? Is this the camera you've been waiting for?

On Canon announces five PowerShot compacts article (150 comments in total)

I don't care at all about these, but it caught my eye that the ELPH160 and 170 are using CCD sensors?? What is that getting Canon? I'd almost think they were old sensors lying around, but at 20MP, they sound like new development. Of course, the limitation is immediately evident with movie mode of only 720 (maybe it's an avi file type?) Is there much upside to using CCD this day and age?

Marty -- not that I disagree with you, but I've burned WAAAY more than $202.30 on gear-trrading, and I think that goes for a lot of folks on this board, so who are we to judge, lol.

One thing we can tell -- people taking test shots on Nikons seem to be WAAAAAY more fun than folks shooting any other cameras on DPR. Where's the picture of a hub cap, or one of the staffers sitting in a coffee house, lol.

justmeMN: The Canon USA press release:

"Canon U.S.A. Unveils "Canon See Impossible" - A Branding Effort Empowering The Creative Spirit In Customers To Make The Impossible Possible"

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/newsroom?pageKeyCode=pressreldetail&docId=0901e02480d4bf80

It's not even a new product. It's that new box logo, and accompanying marketing theme.

I thought it was a new printer. This is even more lame!

I like this quote from the link "Central to the new marketing initiative, the light within the borderless box represents the dedication the Company has to building new collaboration paths with both consumers and commercial clients to constantly innovate and to challenge convention"

-what does that even mean, lol. Yup, that's Canon -- "challenge convention."
