It's a good opportunity IF you are a working Pro under 21...

Edgar_in_Indy: Not that I have anything against bearded nerds, but the photographer couldn't find any pretty girls standing around smiling? What kind of trade show is this?!?

@Edgar_in_Indy - a boring one? Nice beard samples btw, not so much for the lens

Dennissmith: WHY are people still believing the "Hype" over more and more MP...
REALITY CHECK FOLKS...More pixels does not mean better QUALITY photos.
So let me get this straight..Canon bring out a 50MP camera and overnight the Nikon D810 is rubbish because it ONLY has 36MP...You people are so dumb!
EDIT...The human eye can only detect so much detail...
More pixels on a camera is a way to get fools to part with extra cash..

Who says the D810 rubbish just because Canon brought the new 50MP 5Ds? On the contrary, IMO. That said, human eye can see plenty of detail looking at large size prints out of high quality 50MP sensor and lens ;)

Ed Gill: To much, to late. 50 MP (seriously?), $3800, really?

People are assuming the sensor will not be as good as Sony's. High MP alone does not guarantee high IQ at all.

Not too late, it's about time. We just don't know how they perform yet.

Shiranai: Meanwhile at the Canon headquarters:

Manager 1: We rule the camera market.
Manager 2: We rule the world.
Manager 3: But we don't rule medium format...

Moment of silence, chirping.

Manager 1: Doesn't mind, release a new 5D, squish 50 MP on the sensor, but cripple something so it doesn't compromise 1DX or 5DM3 sales.
Manager 3: Video mode, like we always do?
Manager 1: Good, but thats not enough. Do something with the ISO!
Manager 3: Perfect, we are so naughty.
Manager 2: Oh yeah, and the others did that aliasing filter thingie last year.
Manager 1: Ok I have a great idea, let's release two 5D models one WITH the aliasing filter and one without, that'll teach them a lesson. Also, put a medium format price tag on them so they know we are serious.
Manager 3: But they aren't...
Manager 1: Shut up, and make it so. We are Canon, it's not supposed to make sense. The main point is, we release something new.

Evil laughter while picture zooms outside of the headquarter.

I'm sure that was from CCTV footage that got hacked ;)

mclaren777: The sample images look great, even with Blacks and Shadows boosted to +100.

I think some of you need to calm down. You're acting like children.

thanks for the link - the 5Ds samples somehow look better - but nevertheless seem promising

Markol: A couple more years and they'll have made that ol 16MP sensor all it can be ;-)
Seriously, it's been announced 3 years ago and the new M5 still uses it? It's not bad to be sure but after 3 years I wished for a new sensor. And while 16MP are not that few, I like shooting 16:9 and that gives me 12MP images. That's the minimum and for a 2015 higher end camera really not much.
Add the high price and I'll pass.
The high res mode is useless for 90% of shooters I wold guess, but we'll see.

hence the fuzzy pseudo 40MP ;)

On Price released for Brikk's 24k gold Nikon Df article (390 comments in total)

Since the bare DF is already ugly, I think the gold plating helps - although it will look a lot better if the gold plating was done on a Leica M camera.

In reply to:

Donnie G: Even though Canon doesn't bother calling these cameras by the stupid new marketing buzzword, "mirrorless", Canon has always had one of the largest collections of best selling mirrorless cameras in the marketplace. Everything from high end PowerShots, including their DSLR styled superzooms, to digital Elphs, D series, N series, and low end A series compacts. Now that Canon has added new 1" (G7 X) and 1.5" (G1 X II) sensor models to their fixed lens mirrorless lineup, all that remains is to freshen up their one APS-C (EOS M2) interchangeable lens mirrorless offering once they identify a genuine demand outside of Japan for such a camera. "Waste not, want not". This is how profitable camera companies stay profitable. Any questions?

None of those Canon models sold more than my old mirrorless cameras, iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 5.

the worst Q&A ever. As much as I love my L lenses, it is time Canon makes new, better sensor than what the 5D3 and 6D have.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)

Great, 4K well spent, no distortion, no flare, and APO performance at f/1.4. Hopefully the user focuses accurate enough the lens renders the high resolution where he wants :)

I don't understand why people complain - you don't like it you don't buy it, you want a cheap 18-135 you buy Canon APS,... Even a 4/3 user complained because of the MFD compared to Oly lens? LOL what's up with that?

It's so cheap Leica could not even include an EVF at that price...

Ramius: Camera body same as Sony A7, but not full format = Fail.

Full frame but only few lenses and one of them is an overpriced zoom that cannot produce sharp corners. Fail.
