This is the most incredible camera ever seen. Until the next most incredible camera ever seen will be announced by Sony. Oh, and there will also be that epic fail announcement about a camera (from Canon).
P. S.: Nikon (finally) learned how to make a good camera - copy / paste the 5D III, and voila, the new D750!
Nomoreheroes: Best lens ever on a Canon......
AV Janus: Great photos. Thanks for posting them.Love seeing the change people can make when they are given the opportunity.
Its funny how the post war "Wirtschaftswunder" never seems to take a lasting foothold in the far east and middle east. The US never seems to liberate them all the way till the end I guess. I guess they are not making the same mistakes like they did in Germany, where they just managed to stay and rebuild the country for 30-40yrs./irony ends/
@shoevarek: it was worse than that. Trust me.
Wow. Great indeed! That sense of vacuum, but still not of emptiness...
"Bright light, dark room...The right light, dark room...yee-eeeah..." (Depeche Mode, Photographic, Speak & Spell, 1981)I am sure that Canon will soon introduce the pink semi-bright spots, and the ultra-innovative Sony some ultra bright color morphing spots.
Thys: What's up with Nikon lately? I don't understand their policy - flooding the market with FF models (the new one will the 8th new model in the same time Canon had 3) and one problem after another? ... and all this in an era of ever shrinking sales? Surely all the new model releases and continous QC problems must be hurting somewhere?
Yeah. And my Lamborghini Aventador had a bad spark plug. I had to replace the car and bought a Veyron instead.
Zerg2905: Everything that Sony does is innovative and exceptional. With the Nikon label on it, it would have been a "pass" for this model. With the Canon label on it, oh, epic fail, the Toyota of the camera industry strikes again. Etc.
Yes. I agree. But it is not that strange. Sony is BIG, just BIG, but, just to make a highly debatable statement, for some strange reason, they're not quite there yet... in the photo world, I mean. I have the feeling that something is missing, too, but I cannot yet describe that something.

This is for the NG team. Or rich people.
GoPro should write a letter to Canon, asking how to make a ridiculous amount of money from not interesting / capable / ubermarket / (here you can insert your own word) products... :)
Logic says it is a lens. But logic is not infallible. More curious about the eventual 7D Mk II. If new sensor inside, good news. If not, it is not the end of the World, but 5D Mk IV will have to be extreme to make me change my (already excellent) Mk III. 14 (or 12) - 24 f/2.8 will be a nice to have, too.
mpgxsvcd: Please don't buy these cameras. This only encourages Canon to build more terrible products.
Cool. My point was not about the cameras, it was about the way the statement was made. I don't care at all about these two cameras, but I do care about objective comments. And I like the FZ200, one day I quite close to buy it, but this FZ200 has now a price a bit different compared with the launch price, right? If I remember well. Folks, here is the thing (in my opinion): if you don't consider something worth your attention, then don't waste your energy on it. Example: I care about 1. The pictures I take and 2. The next gen Canon APS-C DSLR to attach to my L glass. Ah, and 3, to get more L glass. Other than that, outside of the photo world, I care about fairness, objectivity, and others. When you read my comments on this, there is not much about photo gear (I never said these are great or poor cameras), but a lot about objectivity in assessing something. With this, I will stop.
Terrible vs what? Cameras in the same price range? D810? The entire Sony range (looks fashionable these days)? Phase One? Leica? Be specific. It will make you credible.
mpgxsvcd: This Canon has an F3.4 to F6.0 24–1008 mm lens. They might as well have just included a fixed focal length 24mm F3.4 lens because that is about the only focal length and aperture that is remotely close to useful on this camera.
No, but let them be happy. With the camera phone, I mean. The entire thread is complete nonsense, anyway. Even the seriously priced Rolls Royce has some flaws, but these are just "not even worth the review" cameras. However, however, like it or not, these will make many users happy.
justmeMN: How *dare* Canon make a camera that's not designed for the enthusiast niche. It's an outrage! :-)
Pallke: A CCD sensor?
Marc, you're right about the CCD sensors.
These two cameras are not for the DPR readers. Interesting enough, "the big one" is not among them. Stay tuned.
"That is not a plane. It's a planet..." :)
alexzn: this is one of the iconic images of the WWII. It may not be so popular in the West but it is rather well known in Russia. Depite all the poor taste sniping on DPR this is a real piece of history. Khaldei, Baltermantz and other Soviet war photographers left behind a treasure trove of powerful images documenting a titanic event of the 20th century. Have some respect (maybe a hopeless cause at DPR forums these days).
The worst thing is bias. Leading to the "collective blame". Sane people will always choose an ice cream over a rifle. In each and every country. Fortunately, sanity prevailed, so far. My post was not related to the dance at all, that's ok, nothing to comment on it.
I went to Berlin two weeks ago. It is now a wonderful city. Learn from the past (because, again, the only thing you cannot fix is the past), look to the present / future, try to make it better. Nazism and Communism destroyed the World once each, extremism and fundamentalism are destroying the World today - maybe we can do something about these. At least we can try.
