brownie314: The peak of the digital age is past us. Most people are happy with what their cp gives. All those sales of digital compacts are a thing of the past. Everyone who was once on 35mm film has switched to digital or decided they are not really interested in photography. Get ready for higher prices and longer product cycles.
Higher prices? Consumers are simply going to stick with what they already have then. Or they'll just head over to the Good Will Bidding website and pick up cams for a song. Good luck to the camera companies trying to raise the prices just because they can't innovate.
Flashback: A nice varied selection, but nothing stand out.
I was hoping for more 'pop', but it is early days yet.
Yeah, but I could get a refurb like new 6d for $800 and all the L lenses I want for the rest of my life plus years and years of photoshop cc subscription for just the entry price of this body and "kit lens"
I agree. The more I look at recent photos from so-called flagship cams, the more I'm convinced that we've reached the point of sufficiency a long time ago. Even a rebel in the right hands will produce pics like these.
Have a 90% off sale for xmas and these will sell like hotcakes!I'd pick one up for $1,200
Leica needs to make it medium format and half the price.
mpgxsvcd: I almost wonder if Sony was holding this information back just waiting for Canon to announce something. Then they could spring it on everyone the next day.
I never have had any interest in fixed focal length cameras but this one caught my attention. It made me think “Could I get away with a fixed focal length if everything else was so good?”. In the end it probably doesn’t fit my style of shooting to be worth the price but it did make me stop and think about it.
With the Canon announcements yesterday there wasn’t a single moment that I even considered placing an order for any of those cameras and all of those cameras were aimed directly at my style of shooting.
Yeah, those releases were pretty darn lame. Kodak times are here again for Canon.
Yup, they were garbage.
1. no ibis = fail2. too expensive
J A C S: "If you want to use EF and EF-S lenses, you need only pick up the $200 EF-EOS M adapter."
$49.99 at B&H.
Same garbage new garbage bags.Nothing to see here.
Tons o Glass 0 Class: OK Canon, you've announced your budget model. Now unveil the high-end model and let the mirrorless market-share competition begin!
destined for the 99 dollar bargain bin onlyway it will sell
Wedding photographer: Comparison with VM 21 mm / F 1,8 Ultron will be interesting.
cut price by 1/2 then add AF. nuff said.
yup the only way this thing will gain traction is if they package it with each camera gratis. Garbage otherwise.
photofan1986: Awfully soft jpegs.
Muhaha! Can't wait for this jewel to hit the $250 bargain bin just like the M1! Come on Canon, keep shippin' em! I wanna buy them when they tank!
This is probably the most exciting thing I've seen all year.
I'd like Tamron and Sigma to put VR in EVERY lense they make.
Also, please make versions of the 50 1.2 too please (with vr)
tsk1979: I guess the full review is coming up soon. I can foresee a gold award for this one. Studio scene is impressive. And at ISO 6400 or so, it is pretty close to A7S!
Canon just needs to stop being lazy and put all the a7r II features in the 5dx. nuff said
HaroldC3: I dont understand how Canon is still trying to sell this camera at a premium price. May be a good sign of things to come though in the US market.
consumer reports?! haha
Pandimonium: Wonders why the ISO 800 shot looks cleaner than the ISO 100. Also, why does Sony persist in getting crucial stuff wrong (like raw compression).
What will be impressive one day is if all higher ISOs look just like ISO 100. Right now they don't; they have noise. Until then, not impressed.
consumer reports is a joke.
Can't wait to snap this up at $250. It'll probably tank around XMAS.
Can't wait for this to hit the $250 bargain bin like the original EOS-M. Bring it!
SONY really needs to make the a7r III lossless RAW.
