Looks like a fine tool for photography without a list of gadgets that most folks don't use anyway.Keep on keeping on, Canon.
peevee1: "the new 10-30mm lens is equipped with a unique power drive zoom dial that allows for simple and smooth zoom capability, ideal for capturing sharp and steady HD video."
What is so unique about it, Olympus 12-50 did the same 2 years ago, and Panasonic 14-42PZ was very similar even a few months before. Since then Sony E 16-50 and Olympus 14-42EZ work the same way.
But that supertele opens new grounds and finally makes Nikon 1 system worthwhile for birders etc.
Good for birders if it really does deliver. Would love to give it a test drive! The better resolution at higher ISO's of the small sensors makes it all look good, non?
What's not to like? Looks like a big, good step forward and will be buying in and send my (fabulous) 30D to backup.
harrisoncac: A good review on a bad lens.
Obviously, Olympus is trying to say this is a body cap, not the other way around.
An expensive body cap.
Nonsense. It's a tool for the photographer who knows how to use it. And after reviewing the image gallery I'd say it's a darn good choice for many situations.
This is a very good image and reminds me that the eye and brain behind the camera are the most important 'tools' when composing photographs. Obviously the potential of this nifty, inexpensive lens is huge IMHO! Good on Olympus for thinking beyond what's supposed to be 'normal' when designing lenses.
Great images. Good work, Mr. Haughey.
I like it. Not an Instagrammer myself, I may yet give it a shot when I get the new device.
I currently have an LX-2 and think it is absolutely fabulous at ISO 200 or 100; preferably the latter. For what I shoot (mostly landscapes and nature scenes) the LX-7 looks to be my future.
Looks like a beauty!
My only wish is that the touch screen would swivel and move as on the 650D.
Looks good to me. Like others have noted: it would be fantastic to have an f2 as the maximum aperture.
Pricey but I'd sure like to give one a test drive!
Photographist: All my friends who are photographers an myselfare considering that Canon has made this D20with a design that is non-ergonomic and... ridiculous.
Please see my new subject on the Forum,called "Canon Powershot D20 - Ridiculous Design",where I placed two picturesshowing the result of our quick "redesign".
What do you think of that ?
Have you held it in you hand?
Didn't think so.
I would love to give this camera a test drive. So what if it's only an f3.9? You can have your ISO at 400 and produce amazingly quality images all day long: the Digic processor is that good. As well, the ability to take HD qualitiy videos entices me. I have a slightly dated 30D and it rocks. but I do need a compact for watery situations.
I had a good old Oympus clamshell film camera that bit the green wiener when we got soaked while kayaking off Vancouver Island a few yeats back. But having a handy and compact camera to take for the rough stuff is very attractive to me.
Hard on the fish, eh? Great shot!
