PhotoFactor: That doesn't look very simple.
Time for Canon to get real and put this in the 5dx with 5 axis ibis
photomedium: $1500? OMG! GTFOOH! LOL.
Well its needs to be $800 or so not double
$1500?! Madness for a 1" sensor. Put in a full frame and I'll listen.
elefteriadis alexandros: In old days with special home made super ccd sensor Fuji S3 and S5 is something special, but today with Sony sensor what's the point..If someone know how to use photohop they can simulate any look.
Yup just too expensive for what it can do and especially for what it can't do. Would maybe pick one up for the cost of a current xpro.
Donnie G: I knew we could do 800 comments today. I just knew it. Gosh, I had a speech all written and everything, but I guess I lost it. So I'll just say thanks to all of the people who helped to make this moronic milestone day possible. 800 comments for a basic ILC camera from Canon that no one's even held yet. What an accomplishment! :))
Funny thing is, at least 3-4 soccer mom/dads have bought these kinds of entry level cameras from canikon, were unhappy, and then looked at what I was using (used 1d series). They shed their tears and then said they'd come talk to me next time before making split second purchase decisions at best buy for cameras or PCs next time. Even the socc mom/dads don't like this level of camera.
armandino: I bought for my brother a 20D with 3 months warranty for $80. Magnesium construction, dual dial, brighter viewfinder 5fps....
Good, used cameras are increasingly the purchase of preference when Canon releases steaming hot ones like this. Got myself some 1d series cameras used for less than $400 with 6 months warranty as well. In today's competitive climate, Canon should've done more to provide a true upgrade instead re-hashing 2009 medieval tech.
Potemkin_Photo: Ricoh GR would seem to be able to do the same thing. You could get 8-10 for the same price.
I think they should at least offer more than 1 year warranty on their cams. Still remember news back in the day from cracked sensors. Not a cool thing to drop more money on this than a nice motorcycle and have a problems with it just a few days/month beyond the warranty. They should go with 5 year premium warranties for this level of cost.
Yeah, thanks for the reply. Yeah, just think the upmark pricing on the Q is too much. More branding than anything else. With gray market 6d probably save more than $1K and probably could spring for 50 1.2L with same budget (one of my fave lenses). I know Leica will never go lower than what they price at as it would kill their bottom line. It's like some luxury cars that do the exact same thing as a fully specc'ed accord. At a certain point, it's just that roof ornament (or red dot).
Q is still expensive for what it does right now. Outfit a 6d or late-gen rebel and you'll get what you need at weddings.
Since the Q is made from Panasonic parts, Panny needs to release a non red dot version for about $1K and dominate the market place. They need some market share gains anyways.
Ricoh GR would seem to be able to do the same thing. You could get 8-10 for the same price.
Potemkin_Photo: disgraceful. nikon needs to make this cam 1/2 price now.
and make the d750 1/4 price.
Potemkin_Photo: Need to hurry about and chop price in half. Release a6500 already so this can happen
It'll go down soon. Most SONYs do.

Olympus better get their strap lugs right on this one. They cheaped out on my em5 elite edition and it is anything but "elite." basically falling apart after only 6 months. elite my @ss
Neodp: It's stunning in looks. A+. However, what about the camera's purpose?
No built-in flash. If it did then would it be powerful?
Limited battery life; even with a separate flash (requiring more batteries).
No mic port.
Stupid priced and 3 times higher than the competition.
Less image quality than better choices.
Hardly smaller than a small DSLR and strong competitor. Maybe D5500.
Lens cost about 3 times more, comparatively; each.
Body and just two prime lenses cost $1800+ minimum; to start.
Adapting lenses is costly, unbalanced, troublesome and unmatched. Both technically and with image qualities.
Why this needs to be $399 out the gate.
Nice looks but overpriced. Will consider when it falls in a couple years. Got my em5 for about $400. Will consider this pen F when it falls to that price.
I'm also perplexed why no pure mirrorless mount. Not everyone wants sigma lesnes only
Potemkin_Photo: they need 50 1.2 FF lenses.
Yup. Brilliant film too. Samyang, just make it.
