Canon Sx500 looks awful lot like the Olympus SP series of superzooms(even its missing an EVF). And whats more shocking about these cameras is that Canon has chosen to use Digic 4 processor instead of Digic 5 which was first seen on SX40 IS.
great, a good job such a grip would be much more usable than the wifi accessories sold by the manufacturers at insane prices.
sadly in India where I live its raining(monsoons) so might miss this wonderful opportunity.
I don't mind those cables as long as they don't come in the way of lens and sensor. this great news for many macro shooter as they can use their canon macro lenses to achieve higher magnification ratios with their canon macro lenses.
22mm lens will make a good combo with the EOS-M
not best looking mirrorless camera but certainly a decent one.
disappointing little camera, sensor is much smaller than recently launched premium compacts.
IcyVeins: Just wondering but why would you need f/2.8 for doing macro? Don't you usually want as much DOf as possible since you are focusing so close?
2.8 on macro is great for portraits, studio use and since its a 180mm lens you can use it for taking pictures of birds as well at that aperture settings.
lets hope the XQD format becomes a genuine replacement for the current CF cards. Sandisk should support this, as far as I remember they were one of the members who defined the standard.
InTheMist: That's actually pretty impressive. RAW?
yes it shoots raw.
wow, that is a big upgrade. it probably means we wont get a 7D mk II anytime soon.
Peiasdf: That’s a lot of fast primes. Good if the camera is smaller.
compared to zoom lenses, fast primes makes sense for a mirrorless camera system.
EmmanuelStarchild: Looks like a Leica knockoff.
except for the X series of compacts, other Leica compacts are rebadged Panasonic Lumix cameras.
Petka: a) Camera is brand new, and now already Canon has to fix problems. How can they let unfinished products get to the market? Canon is on the decline, seriously!
b) Great service, Canon! even the small details are immediately fixed and new products accommodated in firmware, pronto! I hope other companies were as good! Future looks great!

Nikon D800 has far serious issues of its own. It cant still reliably trigger speed light wirelessly. chk this link for more details: http://nikonrumors.com/2012/06/18/rumor-second-nikon-d800-firmware-update-coming-out-soon.aspx/
did you use a Tilt-shift lens? beautiful picture.
another reason why to choose m 4/3 mirrorless camera over other mirrorless systems. ( Also Canon soon might join this camp)
Chaitanya S: f/5.6 @ 300mm is impressive. I am not a big fan of super-zooms but I am sure many people will prefer to buy this lens over primes.
I shifted to Nikon after D7000 release. I have a couple of fast(f/2.8 or faster) lenses with the kit. Soon I am planning to get D800(or if the rumours of D600 are true then D600).
