CameraLabTester: Canon should replace the EOS M disaster with a newer body model instead on newer lenses.
New lenses, no matter how brilliant they are, are just bricks when mounted on the quagmire designed EOS M.
Come out with an upgrade for EOS M, then maybe consumers will call on the deal.
It is also your responsibility, Canon, to issue relevant and important FIRMWARE UPDATES to those who have been suckered into buying the EOS M incomplete camera. They deserve your support.
well the af layer isn't on top, but guess again.
panasonic's image app? the one i have to keep on resetting my phone to restart the app because it fails to reconnect? that one?
okay then... bash away..
Rooru S: No longer listed in Canon USA huh? Interesting...
lol @ huge. don't let facts get in the way of your bashing there.
ohwait . i'm sure he'll come up with some bull story about m43's being the equivalent...
nicolaiecostel: 6.3 ? Seriously ?
lol .. looks like Barn is up to his normal behavior. fact of the matter is .. it's the smallest which adopts more to the principal of short registration small bodies then the samsung or the sony .. no matter what excuses you'll give for them.
the grass is not that greener when you start taking into account the cost, size and quality of lenses.
Samsung rolls in at a 1/3 stop advantage at the tele end - and is considerably larger and heavier.
Sony E mount is larger, heaver and has the same speed (but 10mm more on the tele end).
Fuji is another beast all together - but you really dont' have any other options if you want a tele zoom and a small kit.
the 45-150 that's an m43's one isn't it?
petemod: This lens is almost as slow as EOS M camera sales.
Odd.. it was the second highest selling MILC camera body in Japan in 2013, and just looking at May BCNrankings .. ranking as #1 selling in Japan.
dpr4bb: Is a switch of the Rebel DSLR series to mirror-less imminent?
I doubt it .. canon just completed a really nice STM IS EF-S lineup with the 10-18 released.
depends on design goals - i suspect size is important.
1/3 of a stop less than most kit zooms - i doubt most would ever notice the difference between 5.6 and 6.3.
not to mention, this is very comparable to the Sony E 55-210 .. however, the EF-M is significantly smaller and also lighter.
THe EF-M rolls in as the smallest telephoto zoom for APS-C+ by a fairly considerable margin.
I really like Canon DPP a lot. This looks like the first major update in 10 years.
I was just thinking they had added support for 10-18mm lens corrections when I saw the headlines. (hope that's in there, too)
DLO was a signficant update. far more than a skin change.
dcy_ccr: I've been using the OS X version of DPP4 to process some 6D RAW files for a few hours now, and I have to say, the output quality to TIF appears to be significantly better than anything I processed in DPP3. DPP4 comes with lots of nice tweaks including very fine control over colour adjustment. Adjustment of shadows and highlights is not as good as LR in my opinion, but it still does a pretty good job.
The UI is vastly improved with a logical layout of the Tool palette and the dark colour scheme is easier on the eye. EOS Utility 3 has a redesigned and functional UI, but on OS X it installs an annoying extension that loads into the menu bar and I haven't found a way of permanently disabling it.
where did you download it from?
Stephan K: Jan, have you tried View NX? Like DPP, it is free (for Nikon), but most operations are literally 10x slower. Let us be thankful for small mercies.
if you use photoshop's ACR over DPP because of the options ..then the joke's really on you.
DLO, HDR, alignment tools, CA removal shadows and highlights have all been added in the last 5 or so years
they've added alot to DPP in the last decade o.O
ZoranHR: Fuji (and other mirorless too) make some really small and nice looking cameras,but all accompanied with big lens. (I know the reason for that) ;-)No matter how much I like camera body, I just I don't see the point.Why I should have a camera with body sized almost as a smartphone with lens size of half-used roll of toilet paper?!
How it would look like if they produce lens for wildlife? (since most mirorless already have a weather sealed version)
They should make a body wich gives a comfort while you hold a lens like this.
@jadot - no they are not. the EF-S 18-135 is a smidgen larger, and lighter.
also the lens has an equivalent field of view of a 200mm lens - it's not a 200mm lens.
Maybe you should understand how this stuff works. ;)
you'll save size on prime lenses under the registration distance focal length of a larger registration distance lens if you don't have to make it retrofocal - otherwise there's very little to gain from a short registration distance mount. (ie: under 45mm for canon EF versus under 18mm for Fuji)
Woodlink: The amount of packaging for this camera is ridiculous and unnecessary.
-no one said Leica was environmentally sensitive I suppose-
she did .. but she needed an extra battery for her T and scooped dpreview's..
Mark Banas: That boombox selfie makes me wonder if "Iceman MikeP" is a missing member of the Beastie Boys... ;)
I'm only seeing three screw holes on the very small front. Can these lights take a conventional monolight speed ring (Bowens, etc.)?
I had the same question is the compatibility with speedrings.
Jogger: It'll be interesting if Nikon starts applying this coating for other lenses. It makes sense here because the filter diameter is huge and people will just use the filter drop in instead.
i can't see why not.. canon's putting it on all their L lenses now.
Zvonimir Tosic: DPR thinks FL coating is news when Nikon delivers it, but when we state Pentax has done it ages ago, then suddenly no one cares about that fact.
no where did dpreview state that it's new to the industry. it's new to nikon, and the article mentions that other manufacturer's use flourine. pentax and canon are two.
drummercam: Pentax introduced flourine coatings a long time ago. From DP Review News, May 2009 -- "The front surface of these lenses is treated with PENTAX-original SP (Super Protect) coating, which applies a special fluorine compound to the lens surface through a vapor deposition process. This SP coating not only effectively repels dust, water and grease, but it also makes it easy to wipe off fingerprints and cosmetics." I have both dusty/rainy hiking and rafting experience with a Pentax SP-coated lens and have yet to touch the front element with a lens cloth.
Pentax recently added entirely new High-Definition coatings to its Limited lens series, and has another coating called aero-bright on some of its 645 lenses. I'm not sure that any maker tops Pentax for lens coatings.
@ Zvonimir Tosic what is it about pentax fans ..
dpreview posted the video - which was a pretty cool video. canon has used the coating for the last 4+ years as well, and i don't see as many of them sniveling.
it's a new coating for nikkor lenses. what dpreview suggested / wrote was accurate.
do we really care?
