rallyfan: I didn't read the copy. I took a look at the images and they reinforce what a terrific little camera the Canon... SL is!

We're skipping this body. It fails to address any immediate need.

In two years, we'll see.

Who is this we of whom you speak?

At least they have profits to plunge.

Aroart: This would be an awesome camera if it came out 5 yrs ago and If Sony and Nikon did not blow it away...

Is Nikon still in business? Good for them!

PhotoKhan: Could the reviewer be less enthused with this camera?
The stance he approached the review is almost palpable browsing through the "let's get on with it and head back home" images in the gallery.
The feeling I am getting from this review is a complete "meh-of-mehs!", in contrast with other online resources.
It is so much so, that I am now decided to get a loaner just to evaluate things for myself.
It is sad that after all these years, I am starting to get the feeling that I simply can't trust DPR anymore when it comes to evaluate Canon cameras.

I thought the tone of the reviewer was really positive.

Nicely done review. I wonder if Canon is going to accelerate the life cycle of the 7DII to take advantage of their new sensor tech.

Patrick GEVAERT: I have it. I use it. It's a very good lens. Very sharp. Because of it's very wide angle you have to watch for flare while shooting in the direction of the sun. The lens renders his maximum optical rectilinear rendition used on a tripod.

And moon flare, as I noticed when recently trying a hand at astrophotography.

filmrescue: I'm glad someone is making fantastic dual purpose affordable cameras with great IQ, dynamic range and features...because Canon certainly seems unwilling to do it. I know they can but instead they choose to once again cash in on brand loyalty. I feel there's only so many times they'll get away with that.

It's refreshing to read a skeptical take on Canon at DPR, for a change.

Paul B Jones: If Canon developed a cure for cancer I would rather die than accept the treatment seems to be the attitude of a core group of DPR posterists. LOL.

Everlast, it was a metaphor (or maybe an analogy?). I don't think Canon is actually working on a cure for cancer. But if they were, and they discovered one, and it could save your life, I'm pretty sure you would turn it down.

I really like flickr. I hope it survives.

The DRistas eat their own. Too funny.

jbancroft1957: Pathetic! Not the camera, but the way us men (I'll give the ladies credit for having more sense), can get so worked up over a product release to the point we trade insults with each other.

Ease up folks and enjoy what you have. Others would.

BlueBomberTurbo: Congrats, Canon! Welcome to 2010! :D

More like welcome to three and a half weeks ago when that gem of hilarity first appeared, to repeated again and again by the non-photographer crowd.

Isn't anyone concerned about the implications of throwing thousands of professional Canon complainers out of work?

Oliver has just discovered the world isn't entirely fair. I guess we should cut him some slack.

Parallelism. I learned something new. Thanks Erez and DPR.

Oliver, do you spend a lot of time yelling "that money is rightfully mine" at the television when you correctly guess a game show answer? In between criticizing homeless people?

The irony is that for actual photography purposes, this is more than enough camera for the typical DPR gearhead.

Interesting that DPRistas are so concerned about a beginner camera built for novices with very basic skills.

Must have got tired of arguing about equivalence and the exposure triangle.
