technic: "Canon appears almost to have gone the other way, removing as much as it thinks it can get away with at the price. The result is the kind of conservative, slightly unimaginative design that's become the company's hallmark."
that sums it up nicely. what a disappointment :(
Good for Canon that they don't directly compare the 6D to the five year old 5D2 that is below $1000 (used). And who knows, maybe they even decided to use an inferior sensor in this more than $2000 'entry' model.
$1000 --> $2000
qwertyasdf: Just curious, is the ISO of Sony SLT cameras adjusted for the light loss resulting from the semi-transparent mirror?!i.e. for the same ISO and aperture, will Sony cameras give the same shutter speed as other cameras? Or will it be longer?
Thanks for the explanations.
tkbslc: Any rumors on price?
Next step, turn it into reality!!!
This years Photokina is a blast!!!

peevee1: Wow. Unexpected. Long time in making, and you managed to finish it in the middle of all those announcements. Wow.
Nothing wrong with Dpreview, it's just this years Photokina is too great.
Well...yea...this review is kind of anti-climatic.
In the conclusion:
The good: Users who frequently switch between EVF and rear LCD viewing
O...come on Dpreview, you can't think of better things to say for a gold award camera?! Anyways, thanks for the great review.
Kevin Coppalotti: "Does this camera make my nose look big dear?" Yes, yes it does. 35mm to short for a flattering portrait.
Take 2 steps back.
ennemkay: i agree about branding. sony should create a new brand for these cameras. much like auto manufacturers have a separate line for their luxury cars.
+1 for naming a new lineThe word "cyber" is so 1990s
ET2: The youtube video isn't working ?
LOL...a Sony camera preview brought to you by...........LUMIX G!!!!
Size is about right, full frame cameras should really be the size of the Canon AE-1, or other older SLRs.
minturnino: Finally!!!!! Great Pentax!!! While Tamron do not update the lens to Pentax Camera..... Pentax solve the gap!I hope that the cost is fair and not excessive in relation to the competition!
Don't over-think, it's a Pentax :D
+ 60% price - Vibration compensation
Nerdlinger: All you haters need to zip it. Just cut and paste this link:
(thanks Heie2, I stole your thunder on the link, but it's too incredible not to share)Try and tell me that the Q stinks...Bravo to Pentax...that thing is incredible.Now I just need to save up and get my K-30 to upgrade from my K-x and all is well in my world.Haters hate...that's what they do...
BTW, great photographer in that review.
The quality of the Q & Q10 is one thing, the price of it is another.I've played with the Q, it's beautifully made, asked the salesperson did it sell well, he frowned.
qwertyasdf: When P&S and camera phones are moving on to larger sensorsSomeday, the Q might have the smallest sensor not just amongst other CSCs, but all photo-taking gadgets....Way to go.
If you too admit the Q is a small sensor niche, there's no point complaining my original comment, that's totally my point. LOL
Sorry if I've offended you.If you love Pentax, I love them too, and sad to see them heading into the wrong direction.
zapatista: I took a Pentax Q with an adapted 50mm F1.7 MD lens around last weekend hiking and to a football game. I had one helluva great time with the 275mm equivalent field of view. IQ isn't going to be incredible at 1:1 but that's nor the damn point: IT'S FUN.
Want more fun?! take it to a beach before summer ends.
