Mirrorless Crusader: What a waste. Canon has become virtually irrelevant and their decision not to announce even a single new product this holiday season firmly cements them in last place among camera makers. It's only a matter of time until they spin off their imaging division and sell it to Sony or something.
Yes, Canon will soon turn to be...Nikon! But wait, Nikon "launched" the D610, soon to be known as the "camera of the century". Cheers! :)
Ostrich Testicle leather (As Michael Reichman would say) anyone? Cheers! :)P. S.: Japan only.
Beavis, Butthead, The Legend continues... Cheers! :)... + :) :) :) :) etc.
Digitall: An excellent innovation, which involves painstaking research and technology that only a year later it was possible to reach this level of evolution, a breakthrough in the world of photography. Still say that Nikon is not being innovative..."At the heart of the image".
Ha ha, good one, sounds familiar from the marketing perspective. Cheers! :)
Zerg2905: These are the funniest comments I have seen so far.Canon, Nikon, carry on: oil spill, exploding batteries, anti-personel viewfinders with splinters, blind AFs, rubber cover failures, water in the engine (electronics) compartment on "weather sealed cameras", obsolete new sensors, dinosaur-like ergonomics, wrong features, compatibility issues, Breguet-like prices for standard merchandise - we have a lot to laugh upon. And, if this makes the life spicy, so be it. Cheers! :)
And probably many others. Cheers! :)
Sdaniella: Pentax K-3:Max 8.3 fpsUp to 22 RAW shots = (Max 2.65s timespan covered)Up to 60 JPEG Large (★★★) = (Max 7.23s timespan covered)
Canon EOS 7D:Max 8.0 fpsUp to 23/25 RAW (Large/Fine) shots = (Max 2.88s to 3.13s timespan covered)Up to 110/130 JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 13.75s to 16.25s timespan covered)Up to 17/17 RAW+JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 2.12s timespan covered)
the longer the timespan covered with many more shots, the better...
110/130 vs 60, means 7D has 83% to 117% more hi-fps shot coverage than K-3,
13.75s/16.25s vs 7.23s, 7D has 90% to 125% more timespan coverage, than the K-3.
~ double the coverage
Come on, I own a 7D, it is a very good camera, but it is no longer the King of the Hill... Use simple logic: it is 3-4 years old, and that's a lot in the digital age.Until the next King of the Hill will arrive (=EOS 7D Mk II), if it will arrive, this Pentax looks great! I will certainly stay with Canon (as I have a set of incredible lenses), but hey, for people looking for a new and decent DSLR this Pentax will do the job.
These are the funniest comments I have seen so far.Canon, Nikon, carry on: oil spill, exploding batteries, anti-personel viewfinders with splinters, blind AFs, rubber cover failures, water in the engine (electronics) compartment on "weather sealed cameras", obsolete new sensors, dinosaur-like ergonomics, wrong features, compatibility issues, Breguet-like prices for standard merchandise - we have a lot to laugh upon.

Canon PR mistake (1D III) replicated. I hope Canon will never do that again. Cheers! :)
D600 oil spots. Yahoo answers: D610. Cheers! :)P. S.: Yahoo answered the same for Canon not so long ago (700D).
Good. Now Nikon, please release your D310 or D400 or whatever high-end APS-C DSLR, so some of us can have the 7D Mk II on the market quickly! Cheers! :)
"Par Toutatis, Otus?!" Cheers...
It's like buying (and driving it yourself) the Mercedes S (or even a bigger "chariot"): an out of this world car, but not for me. I like kevlar, ceramics and "4 motion" V12 or W16... Cheers! :):):)
Adding weatherproof to this brick might be interesting. My old idea, refurbished. Cheers! :)
GPW: Sony wins, Canon sucks, Nikon is KING, GET over it people
Nikon has no sensor available, so it cannot be "King" of IQ or DR. Very good AF, yes, maybe, debatable. So it is 0 vs 1, where 1 is obviously Canon that is manufacturing all the parts. Cheers! :)
Each and every time "DxO" is mentioned: "Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein!" Cheers! :) P. S.: no relevant comparative study can be done in this World as long as the comparators are in different classes. It's like saying that in elevated BP Ca++ channel blockers are better or worse vs ACEis... Bollocks.
Bogdan Spineanu: Wow .. if you make sensor pixels larger you can capture more light ! Why didn't I think of that ? Revolutionary !
@Mr. Spineanu: you did not because you have nothing to do with sensor technology R&D. Obviously. So criticism without solutions is not quite constructive, you know... Cheers! :)
This makes me want the 70D sensor in a lighter "package", e.g. in the probable EOS 750D. For a possible / probable 7D mk II, an even better sensor is needed (or at least this is what I would like). My opinion. Cheers! :)
Zerg2905: A very Canon-like Nikon. Cheers! :) :) :)
Obviously, the Black Knight always wins(...)! Cheers! :)
@Marvol: yes, the second assumption is the right one. :)@olyflyer: the EVF is the only part where the Canon-like ends. So please, no "fanboy-like" quotes or comments. Because I will not buy this or a G16 soon. :)
