Suave: How many lightbulbs on Eiffel tower should go out for it's image to pass into the public domain? Also, are slingshots legal in France?

Or busload of members on the National Slingshot Association.

maxnimo: So if I build a half-scale copy of the Eiffel Tower on my land, that would be super illegal? And a full-scale one extra super illegal?

@geetwee. That can be rectified. After all new copyright extension fight is about to start in the US.

Scottelly: This seems like Canon's answer to the Nikon D5500.

With only 1080p30 video and no IBIS, I'll stick with my Sony A65. The Nikon looks like a better deal to me, since it's $100 less and offers almost everything this Canon has, plus a bunch of functionality that Canons don't have. Frankly, I think I'd get the older Nikon D5300, which has Wi-Fi and does 1080p60 for $200 less. The only things these newer cameras seem to have that's new is the NFC and the touch screen. Of course this new Canon does have that status LCD on top, which is definitely a nice feature, which I do miss from time to time. It makes the camera like a more professional camera too.

This camera does have better/faster live-view focusing though, so it has two advantages over the Nikon D5500: better live-view focusing and the LCD display on top. The Nikons have 3.2" articulating displays though, while this camera has only a 3" display. Also, the Nikons can do 1080p60 (far less rolling shutter effect) instead of 1080p30.

How much for EF 85/1.8 and 35/2 IS analogs for A65?

Suave: While gear junkies tap into their last reserves of vitriol, Canon quietly makes cameras that regular customers want and can afford. Oh, and it has these glassy things, I keep forgetting the name... Marbles? No that's different... ahh, lenses!

That's not the entry level Canon DSLR.

Rodrigo Ayres Bordin: Is it possible to connect the camera to the computer, and download the pictures directly to a folder (Windows), or the camera only connects to smartphones?

On all other Canon wi-fi equipped camers it's possible, but initial setup is a bit complicated, that is it does not just show on your home network as a remote disk. Expect same here.

Tonkotsu Ramen: Canon has one of the worst implementations of wifi/nfc. The apps are way behind what sony and MFT offer.

There's a DSLR-controller level app for Sony?

Tommygun45: This piece of crap will sell in droves this holiday season. Every person who knows nothing about how cameras work but wants to get a 'good' camera will go to Best Buy and be tricked into buying this thing. God the idiocy of the masses allowing corporations to be so lazy. This isn't how its supposed to work people!

Props to you for being such an independent thinker.

Mssimo: DSLR RIP April 1959 - June 10 2015

We still have to see what the AF speed will be like. And Sony still has only 8 native FF E-mount lenses.

Awww shoot, I guessed it'd be 5k.

Ednaz: I've seen this on almost every Nikon owned, not at f16, but when shooting macro and working at effective apertures of f32 or higher. Not as dense as what's shown, but visible in that specific situation - macro, highly stopped down.

I suspect that there's a "tolerance" level for the spots...

But, but Nikon uses Sony sensors?!

Good, it means that refurbs will show up sooner than I expected.

Let me guess, it needs newer i7, 16-32GB RAM, SSD, and bridged GPUs?
