dmanthree: What's the point of spending all that cash for a Leica and then *not* using Leica lenses? Why not just get a Canon?
@leonche64The problem with the Leica SL is that there are *NO* lenses out there, except of one zoom at the moment. So you have to adapt even homegrown leica-lenses anyway. Why not using a Canonadapter? It's not larger than f.e. a "Leica-R"adapter.
Because Canon has really good lenses for reasonable prices. Don't forget Sigma Art lenses are (f.e.) EF-lenses, too ;)
Nick Brundle - Photography: This totally outguns the 7d mkII. Canon have a fair bit of catching up to do if they want to maintain the competion.
Did you really study the history of Nikon DX Cams? ;) There will be a D510 in a few months, fixing an oily sensor or problems with light leaks and the next really new body will come in 10 years. Earliest. ~8]
@Hellraiser. That's true. But there will be a new 7D in 1 or 2 years, rocking the specs and a new D500 in 7 years or maybe never. ;) So it's like the D5, enjoying the leadership for 4 weeks until the 1DXM2 came out.
But I *really* like the D500... it's just the wrong bajonett. I don't change systems for bodies. But if I would start now with sportsphotography, I probably would go to Nikon at the moment.
A nice new cam from Nikon. But I decide by the available lenses from the individual companies and at the moment, Canon is still clear the better and more interesting choice. I also like the ergonomics from Canon (big thumbwheel, custom modes etc.). over any Nikon.
What really is impressive is the buildquality of the D500 and the weathersealing. I always had the feeling that the bodies from Nikon are on an own level of beeing immortal in the field.
scott_mcleod: The spec line for the Q says it's APS-C but the text says FF...
28mm f1.7 stabilized lens. I wish this would come out as Pancake on a Canon EF Bajonett. What a nice focal length and lightgatering thingy...
vscd: I guess the times of "cheap and bad" 3rd party lenses are over now... and Tamron gives with image stabilisation another plus over other brands. First reviews mentioned that the imagequality is affected with VR turned on... can you please confirm/unconfirm this in your reviews? thanks.
It's not about uniqueness. Having the worst lens in the world can also make you unique. It's about making good lenses since a few years...
And I don't know the actual CEO, but it's a family business company and I think this also keeps some rather interesting products like the FoveOn alive. Without pressure from "stakeholders" you can do much more stuff, which barely pays off. Sigma is on the right way. Kudos to em'.
LEGACYMOMENTSPHOTOGRAPHY: DOES IT SHOOT 4K........................................? LOL!
No, it's a photographer's tool, not a movierecorder.
dbm305: First fast aperture 85 with stabilisation? Zeiss Batis Sonnar 85mm 1.8 T*!!!!!
@Photo_AK. It does have a VR.
Mike99999: The sample image on the Fuji website must be a joke, right?
This is not ok. If I include the fact that sample pictures are mostly picked out of quite a few examples... this one is horrible. At least for a product-showoff.

vscd: There was always one industry to drive the technology: porn.
if there will be an ultrarealistic product, the market will begin to explode in all other corners...
No, not at all. Guess which genre at first used Video-CDs, 3D Glasses, remote controllable hardware, webcams, 4k cams for point of views. Virtual reality is the big next thing. Even if no one admits to ever saw anything from it, the business are multiple billions every year ;)
vscd: "all require external filter systems like those designed by Fotodiox"
...In some cased you can use the gel filter slot instead.
The Canon has one. And except of gradientfilters it's quite nice to use. But I'm more into infrared these days...

surlezi: Great abilities, gread IQ, too bad it's not mirrorless !
Hi stereo. You are not open for arguments at all, I already tried it. And I knew that you'll answer that calm way to feel more settled and superiour. Nice try. Why should I convince you? Do you try to convince me? Teaching the religion of the mirrorless? It's always the same with relgions...
@monoton, hmm sorry, @stereoYou already stated your points, and most of them are still wrong. But as I think you're not willing to discuss those without prejudice it's really useless to show you your errors. The only halftrue point is the size and the weight... and we decide what we want to carry. No you. Sorry kid.
Guess why they have now... they were beaten *badly* with the 7DM2. I just wonder why they didn't call it D400. Seems to be the final APS-C for Nikon, anyway (?).
But he is of his tiny mirrorless ;)
Outguns the 7DM2? I'm not sure... but even if it does, that would be the minimum after 2 years, don't you think?
