Okay--put all these improvements in the next model of the EM-1 and get continuous focus tracking up to speed and I have my next camera--thank you very much.
Much as I really like Sony's recent entries into the FF and ASP-C market, I would be a little concerned if I was heavily invested in Sony camera equipment. They are now also not producing computers anymore--What's next?
jedy: I don't know why Canon cling onto the high end dslr aps-c camera, even with the sports and wildlife argument. Lots of photographers I know have either gone full frame or mirrorless rather than buying an expensive aps-c dslr. I do believe mirrorless cameras will improve and lens choices will get better and this seems more like the natural home for the aps-c sensor. Canon should be looking more seriously at mirrorless cameras as they are bound to threaten the dslr dominance as technology improves and more with full frame sensors appear. I'm sure there'll be plenty of gear whores eager to get their 'newer' and 'better' fix who will buy this though.
I agree that mirroless cameras will improve, however how long will it take for them to produce a quality long lens--that is, in the 400 to 600mm range? And how long will it take for them to get the focus tracking act together? Also--look at the latest m43 40-150mm lens from Olympus--if you check out the size and weight, you will see there is very little advantage over non-mirrorless kits
I already have a photo editing app on my tablet that edits raw files and does nearly everything LR does. It's called Photo Mate R2 and only cost $9.50. It's a pay once stand alone program that actually works pretty darn good.
Great shot--typifies many people's impressions of California.
Congratulations--very well taken indeed.
Adobe's app priced at $99.00--Photo Mate R2 app for Android is $9:00--a great app for photo editing-does raw files and all--Adobe's pricing goes according to script--that is exorbitant!
Same old, same old. Oh, for some consciousness!
Excellent--looks great and very creative.
Wonderful shots--Polar Bear shot is awesome. Thanks for posting. It's hard to imagine the time, patience and dedication needed to get shots like these. Kudos to all the photogs in this series.
Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?
Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?
Ahh--something missing with this backpack--A hip belt. A hip belt. A hip belt.
Also, cannot imagine carrying a decent tripod in the position shown in the first photo--Pack would be bouncing around all over the place while walking or hiking.
