Elaka Farmor: This (kind of the same) 18mp sensor has revolutionized the world the last three years....

this is a new sensor not the same as the other 18mp on offer from canon

so if you take rubbish photos you'll get space on DPreview so long as you take them in strange way.

I use a helmet with a mirrorless camera & two flash guns attached to it to do my street photography. Can I get a feature on the news section?

chillgreg: DPR WHAT ABOUT THE 5R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aside from the EVF flash and control dial they are all but identical. Even Sony uses a single manual/handbook for both models. I know there's a gazillion cameras and you have so much resources and time yada... but seriously would it have been a stretch to review them concurrently?

Disappointed.

If they are the same why does there need to be a different review. Surely the output from the cameras will be the same?

If you don't want others to be exposed to your work - open a gallery or travel and display your works on tour.

time to clear our courts of these nonsensical cases.

oh dear

Joel Turcotte: The only way Canon & Nikon would operate stores would be to run them regardless of losses, or to copy Apple & Bose and restrict distribution and monitor pricing, to ensure their retail outlets were not undercut by 30% every day.
In fact if Canon & Nikon had done this already Jessops would still exist.
Maybe Canon will take over a few flagship locations as touch and try then go away and buy types.
Either way we can look forward to internet tax levy if for no other reason than the treasury will need to replace lost revenue from bricks & mortar taxes, whether from sales VAT, staff PAYE, National Insurance Contributions, etc, plus a local sales tax will be needed to be distributed to councils to replace lost business rates etc.

except that its illegal for a manufacturer to stop supplying the shop on the basis of what price they sell the item at. The EU has very strict anti-competitive business laws. canon/nikon would be subected to an unlimited fine if they did.

In reply to:

Andrew Butterfield: My local Jessops has only cardboard POS material in the window with pictures of cameras on it. Their staff look a mess and hang around outside the shop smoking. They charge as much for a slow 1GB SD card as Amazon do for a fast 16GB card. They won't consider doing deals. If they were a great shop, I'd be sad, but I'm just hoping when they go that we might get a nice coffee shop or a deli where they used to be. Sad for the staff though, even the ones who lounge outside with their shirts untucked smoking fags...

its a pretty accurate one though lol

the stores changed from selling camera equipement to selling prints, POS cameras and consumables. Even then they were never competitive. Good in an emergancy if you needed ink or paper but other than that. in saying that I did get my old 5D2 from them as they were the only ones to have it in stock at the time.

In reply to:

Scorpius1: And just to really get the party going Canon will release the 35L mk2 in the new year... which will be fully weather sealed.. although way pricier than the sigma..

which is only useful if your camera is fully weather sealed or if you actually want to photograph in the rain. weathersealing is not a deal breaker for most people.

the cost of a mk2 35 L will be off putting. will probably be double the cost of the sigma with canons current price structure

In reply to:

Shamael: I think that this deal is not new. When it became evident that OM-D uses a Sony sensor, not a Pana, it was as evident that something was in the air, something of this kind. Anyway, the Sony sensor does a great job in the OM-D, it is just a cropped NEX-7 chip in some way.

it was a joke - I was refereing to canons DSLRS not point and shoot cameras.
