Just Ed: The 200-500 sounds interesting considering the price. But the constant f5.6 could be a handicap at the wide end. Still, the price is reasonable.
With its huge front, it should have had a drop in filter. That would make consumers very happy and proud to own a Nikon Super zoom.
everybodyisone: As a lot people mentioned canon would become a lens supplier for Sony milc bodies I'm wondering when will Sony release their cameras also with Canon mount...
The way it is going, Canon will release niche cameras with Sony mount.
Photato: FF is kind of overkill for the masses.Sony should consider APS-H instead for best value. There is nothing magical about FF.
The beauty of APS-H is that it is the largest sensor that can be imaged with a single mask bringing costs down and yields up. A cost threshold if you will.
If produced in enough quantities it should be considerably more affordable than FF sensors can ever be.
If not Sony I hope Canon goes that way since they have previous models with that sensor including current experimental ones.
Only Canon produced those aps-h, probably due to outmoded fabs that they owned.
steelhead3: Capture 1 is waiting folks
It is a no brainer for Sony shooters (free for light or $50 for pro). It is tough to relearn though.

steelhead3: Jeff there are cameras with IBIS which stabilize fast primes, everything in the DSLR world isn't Canon or Nikon.
as bright primes don't offer image stabilization, and bulky mirrors and shutters tend to require higher shutter speeds or workarounds like mirror up and electronic first curtain (when they're available ).
I believe there is a camera called A900 and A99 which are FF.
J A C S: I disagree with the conclusion that this camera can sometimes catch up with dSLRS in low light, etc. The resolution is so far behind dSLRs, I am talking about 20-24mp dSLRs only, that even some mirror shock would get you better resolution than this camera on a steady tripod. I just snapped a few shots at 1/15 sec at 200mm with my 21mp FF, one of those crops is in my gallery.
Also, fast primes on FF do not have IS, indeed, but they are really fast by 1" standards. All decent f/4 zooms have IS and they collect more light than the lens of this camera even at its widest (and fastest) setting. They are much sharper, as well.
Yep JAC, that is huge increase in resolution going from 20 to 21 mpix.

If you haven't noticed, a quality lens usually comes at a price.

AbrasiveReducer: Given the interest in a viewfinder for this camera I'm guessing there will be promotions with free or almost-free viewfinder before long. The Japanese EOS M3 kit I bought came with the viewfinder and was less than $500. So far, I haven't used the viewfinder except to verify it works, but at least the price was right.
Is it the same viewfinder?
win39: A camera with an optional add on viewfinder is not a serious camera. It is just a big point if you can see it and shoot.
The RX1 is not a serious camera?
mpgxsvcd: I understand why people still buy Canon DSLRs because they have so many Canon lenses that they don’t want to get rid of. However, I don’t understand buying a compact fixed lens camera from Canon when the competition is so obviously superior.
I am sure this is a fine camera. However, gaining the 400-600mm range is not worth giving up almost everything else that would make your picture quality and shooting experience better.
The one thing this camera has going for it is the Canon name. Otherwise it simply can’t match what everyone else offers.
we know this sensor is capable of fast read out yet Canon refuses to put in a processor that takes advantage of this and really make a kick ass camera. Did they have a lot of rebel 300 cpu lying around and with just in time inventory control solve a problem?
Peiasdf: Was this back when photographer still have access to Whitehouse or are these staff photographer's work?
Also. I can only imagine how much better the quality would be if a modern FF was used without flash.
Don't be so hard on Dick with his feet up...if he dropped them all the blood would leave his heart and couldn't be pumped back up. The question I guess, Does he have a heart?
What does a bunker look like? We had an underground complex in our area for the President's escape, since converted to reform young people in a military manner. It is an interesting go through. Central Oregon
The prequel of these shots is on video called Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to love the bomb.
A quick look around the scene...the sony much sharper in the center but the Canon looks better at the edges. CA is absent with the Sony but shows up in the other cameras. Over all, I think the default cameras are all pretty good with the Panny showing best overall other than center resolution and CA.
We have a long way to catch up to the Russian Dash Cam...are our students getting enough math?
Definitely a non-Canon look, I like them. Good shooting and selection Barney.
