On Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-0n preview and video news story (273 comments in total)

I was hoping for so much more... I have a MkII and this does not seem that revolutionary. This is an evolution at best. The MkII should have had a more advanced AF system to begin with and things like more programmable bracketing shots should be offered as a firmware update to MkII users.
I am happy to see that the megapixel count was not raised as I prefer low noise over pixels.
What I can't figure out is why Canon in it's infinite wisdom can't put a swivel LCD on there and for a camera that supposedly is being marketed for video. You can put it on a 60D but not on a MkIII. Boo....

It's a bit disappointing that given the amount of glass in use that they couldn't include a little more and get an aperture like oh I dunno F2 or F1.8 god forbid F1.4. Why do these turkeys think that 2.8 is fast enough or is going to provide a shallow enough DOF?

On Panasonic unveils conversion lenses for Micro Four Thirds news story (34 comments in total)

OK I'm confused. Or maybe not. Why on earth would you make conversion lenses for an interchangeable lens system? It's always optically better to get a lens suited for the job rather than throw an adapter on there.
if this was a viable option, why wouldn't we just by silly converters for our DSLR's? Seriously Panasonic?

I thank Fuji for paying attention to what real photographers want in a small camera. We don't want slow zooms, we don't want plastic. Basically we don't want a GX1. We like dials on the outside because we don't shoot in scene modes and like to make photographs. Overall this is a delightful street camera and depending on where the final prices lie I think an XPro1 and a 35 F1.4 would be perfect for the street.

On Preview: Canon PowerShot G1X large sensor zoom compact news story (791 comments in total)

I have to say I'm really disappointed with this. I've been coveting an X100 for some time now and I've had the chance to use one and I liked it but being a canon guy I wanted to see what they would put out given my flashes. The lens on this is a joke. Why can't we put a fast prime on instead of a slow short range zoom. Canon would hit this out of the park with basically the same camera with a 35mm equivalent F2.
Sorry Canon no matter how favourable a review DPR will inevitably put on this, going to buy an X100 or whatever else they release.

SDF: That's HOT! Indeed a MFT and Nikon 1 killer. I want one now!

The only thing this is going to kill is Canon's high end P&S marketshare. Given what the rest of the market is doing this is like Canon's R&D department fell asleep
