kind of funny dress 3rd from right looks like a smily face :D
Petrogel: Will this kind of consumer DSLRs be dead in 5 years?These DSLRs are already dead, but they don't know it yet
you dont know what you are talking about
At high ISO this camera delivers for sure.
interesting collection. I like No 11 best
This is an interesting news. Tamron and sigma give a good run for the money to the big name companies such canikon. If this lens is as good as their 70-300 VC USD which I have no doubts about, then it will find lot of new happy owners including myself. Of course the price has to be right. The aperture is only 1/3 step slower than usual 5.6 so it is irrelevant to me.
Given this camera a second look it does look like acne covered tenager's face. Too much buttons and knobs everywhere I look.. Oh dear
Good thing is that they have used a sensor from D4 and used physical dials but there shuld be A on dials for auto Iso an auto shutter speed without having to dive in menu. Then the mode dial would be unnecessary.
Thanks guy for what are you doing. I would appreciate if you could also test camera bodies with kit lenses. Would be interesting to see what can can combo do straight out of box. I know its fine to know what can you expect from prime lens+camera but still it would be interesting IMHO
Everything is worth so much one will pay for it. I this case there was someone rich enough to buy this pics at this price.
LensHood: I just don't get it with these video capabilities. Editing video is seriously time consuming and most people I know really don't have time to do that. And besides the video it is so hard to find good music to go with it. Or is it just a sales argument for people and never use it once they have it? Maybe I'm oldfashioned, but from a hobby perspective shooting stills provides far more joy. It justbreaks my heart all the innovation goes to video instead of optimising photo more.
Even hollywood can't guarantee success after a $100 mln investement in a two hour movie. Are there really that many video amateurs that prefer DSLR over a handycam that at least has decent autofocus?
I don't think there is any competition IQ-wise between amateur handycams and apsc dslr. Now finally AF is catching up. Ergonomics will be still lacking, but one can't have it all.. yet
It looks so much nicer than k-30 it replaces
I am gonna save up money and buy this camera for the sake I will never meet anybody else with the same camera :D
I have seen some BG for canon 6d from china for around £23. I wonder is it any good? Anybody tried? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300783044882?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
RAG64: Why do entry-level cameras always have to lack dials and other physical controls??? Are beginners more adept at or do they particularly enjoy digging through menus? Does that make handling of the camera easier? Does it make the functions more visible or understandable for people accustomed to letting the auto mode do all the "thinking"?
A pity, really, that this will probably keep many p&s upgraders away from the otherwise excellent EPM-2...
Not reallythe point is makers of entry level cameras always target people who dont care much about control but may care about better IQ. Those customers don't want to learn (in general) new things and leave cameras in full auto mode. That is why there are so much more sold of entry level cameras than advanced ones
That lens so deserves gold award
Juraj Lacko: Ok this could be a perfect camera if:-FF senosor with NO AA filter built in could be same sensor from 6d-same size (I wouldn't mind to have small mirror with small coverage as long it is optical)-same price as 100d-3 reasonably spread appart AF cross type sensors down to -3ev-that carbon fiber could be used all around the body.They could really cut corners on where they did. Not really so much need for touch screen nor flash or video. I am ready for your criticism :)
Don't say that it wouldn't sell well. even if price would be £1k

This could be so much better camera if they would put that 5r/6 sensor for lower noise and better AF and ISO 100. I would definitely buy it.and wouldn't mind to pay that extra few ££ for it. Well maybe next time they will do it right. 'Sigh'
I have recently seen documentary film about polar bears made this way. Man what a pictures! Well done
