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.
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.
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 :)
Should be one hell of a showing at Photokina :)
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?
Shoukd be $399 with kit lens. Even D3300 has better IQ.
I have many excellent L lenses, what i need is new better Canon bodies with similar performance to Sony/Nikon sensors.
Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: when I read about the body only price, I thought I was day dreaming!Cheapo Leica? but then saw the kit lens price... it brought me back to the reality!
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.
Provia_fan: I agree with so many of you. That's exactly what Bresson, Winogrand, Gilden, Eggleston used to say. They packed their cameras and went home saying "Poor phase detection, no face detection and no touchable screen, no HDR mode, EVF too small and too big....can't shoot!" Because they depended on all these things, that's how they built their careers. :P
"Poorly lit gym" - any sport events held there must not be important at all. I won't even go there, let alone carrying a camera LOL
For such an extensive review, why hasn't DPR tried other RAW converters for Fuji? Clearly ACR is the worst of all for processing X-Trans files including X20/X10. There are Iridient Developer, C1 Pro, PhotoNinja, and others. Of course, from the review I could see DPR loves OOC JPG too much.
Morpho Hunter: "The only way is to keep innovating". Which reads "the only way is to keep copying Olympus".
Another insecure small sensor user trying to justify its purchases...
Zeisschen: With the a6000 news just prior to this, it's hard to believe both product pictures are made in the same year 2014. Compared to the modern Sony design this camera just looks like a cheap plastic tool from the 90s.
I stand corrected. Looks like plenty of lenses to choose from; many would not even be sharp on NEX-7, esp in the corners. Those focal lenghts are also mostly similar. To waitformee - LOL adapters? Yeah you could adapt anything, but I've used Fuji and A7 for a while, I wouldn't call shooting adapted lenses hassle-free! For assignments I'd still take my DSLRs.
this plastic cheap tool by Nikon has a lot more lenses to choose from. How many E mount Sony lenses are there? LOL, yeah the zeiss ones are good but mostly overpriced.
kewlguy: Looking at the IQ daylight comparison with EOS 700D - why does the Canon have better accutance and/or micro contrast? better lens? D5300 image shows as if there is a haze.
Ryan, I agree with you as I have 6Ds myself. I just wanted to see if the D5300 with AA filter could have the same IQ as D7100, but looking at the samples I wonder why it is softer than both 700D and D7100. Unless DPR used a different lens...
Oops, change the RAW 700D to Nikon D7100 - the D5300 looks even softer!
RyanBoston: I've had this camera since Christmas and love it. The workability in raw is incredible, especially with good glass. Amazing detail and colors! Pulling shadows is amazing.
I've had the D40, D60, D90, D5000, D5100, and T2i. The D5300 is my favorite out of them all and am amazed at the quality of the pics.
Slap a Sigma lens on the D5300 and be prepared to be amazed.
No it won't. He slapped a Sigma lens on the D5300...
Change from Jpg to raw, if you can't see it than you're blinded by your fanboyism. D5300 has no AA filter that's why I asked...
