cxsparc: Holy cow! I would have bought the A7 MkII if if had a better mount and less glare than the old sensor. It now has a better body design and Ibis. To those who think they don't need it: Try MF on a legacy zoom lens at 200mm, you are shaking already just because your hand is twisting the focus ring. A stabilised EVF allows for better and faster MF.
Hope however that the sensor glare HAS been improved. And would like silent shutter, too :-).

Well I have known Sony since 1983 and it keeps churning out innovation: Walkman, DIskman, then a phase of aborts like minidisc, memory stick and other proprietary stuff solely designed to grab the customer by the neck. THis has changed again and I can only say: Go on impressing me.

Really wonder why Nikon and Canon are stuck like deer in the headlights? They should have the resources, the knowhow to do the same and quickly finish Sony to die in the sun. But then, Japanese Companies are ruled by other factors.

Ehm... Sony, Nikon and Canon are all Japanese companies... ;)

bigdaddave: The camera is genuine but I doubt the lens is, the black Planars didn't arrive until much later, they were all silver back then

Cane: How come 3rd party manufacturers outside Sigma and Tamron can't make an AF lens?

Because it's totally not trivial to make an autofocus lens. Think only to the interaction needed with the camera (that tells if something is or not in focus) and the fact that the loop AF motor-AF sensor must be stable in any condition...

maybe you don't know that there are liquids that don't freeze even in Siberia in winter... there is not only water...

In reply to:

tinternaut: I think Canon users have been waiting for a long time.

I had a look at that post... and had a laugh with Joseph Black! How many times did you seriously need to increase your exposition by 5EV?? The maximum I've done in my life was about 2EV. All of the initial images are extremely heavily underexposed! If they were exposed correctly the difference would be definitely much less visible. And again, you're comparing a 21Mp camera of 2.5y ago with a brand new 10Mp camera!
"I cant understand why people praise 7D"? I can. When it was released was a great camera that had very good performances and quite a lot of innovations. That was 5y ago. Can't stand from IQ point of view with camera released now? Really? I wonder why...

Alec_c: I'm voting with my pocket rather than with comments. Waited long to get a decent prosumer camera. No such in sight so switching to mirorrless. OOps, Canon has no good offer. What a pity! Maybe my (and others') money in competition's pockets would take the snub self-satisfied smile from Mr. Maeda's face.

Same for me. I don't shoot sports or very fast actions but I never had any issues or complains with the 6D focus points.

Have you ever used those cameras? I mean for real photography and not for laboratory tests...

Honestly that's a bit excessive. No "decent prosumer camera"? Ever tried to use a 6D for instance? Or the new 7D mkII if you prefer crop? Come on!

jwkphoto: My first digital camera was the Digital Rebel (300D) which I got 11 years ago today. Great camera and I still have it. I updated to the first 5D in Jan. 2006 which gave me beautiful full frame images. Fast forward to May, 2008. I had three jobs to photograph on Sat, the 17th so I got the 5D out to check it out to make sure it worked. On the fiifth frame, the shutter button fell apart with only 8,000 frames on it. The shutter still worked but with a half second delay and it would not focus. On Sat. I had a horse show, a high school reunion and dance school recital. I could use the DRebel for the reunion but not for the action photos because of the slow shutter lag. I ended up buying a Sony A300 because I had lots of Minolta lenses. The A300 has a very short lag and I got good action photos. It cost $250 to get the 5D fixed and I sold it on EBay. I've had Sony cameras ever since and never a problem and I'll never buy another Canon.

I'm using canon since 20years and I never had an issue with any camera... all of them are still working like new, same for the lenses. Maybe you were just very unlucky with your 5D...

Zerg2905: Oh, you all are still here?! I have left yesterday evening, and to my surprise now I see...more than 750 comments. Wow... What a waste of time, in my opinion.
P. S.: dealers have started to offer the 7D Mk II with the BG E16 grip for free - sounds like a good offer (almost 300 EUR saving), can make the camera (even) more attractive...

Sorry, it's not a waste of time... some of the comments are really hilarious and I have a lot of fun reading them! :)
Ok, on the other side it's a not very busy day at work...

jcunwired: Out of 731 (now 732) comments, I'd bet not one of the posters (posers?) owns Canon equipment but most wish they did. Just thinkin' out loud here...

Just have a look on my equipment list and you'll see a lot of very nice Canon stuff. Still, this marketing bulls*t is really stupid! As I already commented they should fire some marketing guy and hire some good engineer!

only 9.9? I'm wondering what does it need to score a full 10 out of 10! :)

Petrogel: What is really amazing, is that we haven't seen any "in depth" review from Dpreview personnel of any of the Leica's latest products.
Either Leica is paying a Lot for it (not to review) or the "personnel" have nothing to compare this overpriced crap with.

Either-way this is an overpriced crap.

As far as I know this is only Leica, not some kind of rebranded Panasonic like the Leica D-Lux.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1083146-REG/leica_10779_m_typ_240_edition.html

$18.5K

To be fair, I have to admit that it is a beautiful choice of design and materials, though, for a collectible.

It's definitely a collectible items like all the other special series... I don't think many of them will actually be used to take photos!
