This new Canon camera reminded me Panasonic D-Snap series of cameras/hybrid devices that came out nearly a decade back.
Finally after a long wait. Now eagerly waiting for the review of this mid-range SLR.
Martin87: I'd rather have physical controls rather than a big touch screen. Just saying.
+1. Android OS currently lacks apps to support all functions of a interchangeable lens camera. Lets hope we see some good apps in future which can fully utilize the capabilities of this camera.
Ricoh has a winner in hand in terms of GR.
I was expecting this lens to cost twice as much. But kudos to Sigma for such an aggressive pricing.
This new camera joins the leauge of C/D-lux series of cameras as the most usless leica camera ever.
Why did it take so long for Canon to introduce this lens? and that pricing is crazy it too overpriced even for the people who can afford to spend 12000$ on a lens. At that price many pro photographer will prefer to get 600mm f/4L instead of this 200-400mm zoom lens both lenses even have similar weight.
Looking at the specs I am sure this lens will retail for around 1200-1400$ mark and looking at the performance of recent Sigma releases(17-50 f/2.8, 8-16, 150mm OS, 35mm f/1.4) I have high expectations from this lens. At that price point it would be a must have lens for landscape shooters with APS-C cameras.
This would make a perfect backup camera for shooting landscapes. Tempting little camera.
Atleast Panasonic has come senses they are not reducing the size of camera anymore.
idbar: I thought Samsung and Sandisk had already products out there. What's new about the Trascend product?
@redfox88: Samsung and Sandisk command high prices on premium products is because they are the once manufacturing flash chips(atleast Samsung does) and they are the once to do binning of the chips.
Inclusion of adobe lightroom on a consumer grade camera is a great move by samsung. I hope more camera manufacturers do the same on their pro/semi-pro cameras instead some proprietary raw editor which works with single raw format.
trekkeruss: Is that an LED chip between the flash and the lens?
yes, it is an led light between flash and lens.
DerbyBill: Where's the 70D?
My thoughts exactly or the the 7D mk 2? Also for a 18-55mm lens that costs 250$ it should atleast have a metal mount.
Will wait for some reviews. some of the samyang lenses have been really good performers, so wouldnt be wrong expect this lens to perform 90% of equivalent canon or nikon lens.
no pricing for 60mm yet, any news when the dock shall be available in market. as I haven't seen that dock for sale at b&h so far.
Finally, they replaced the worst lens in their telephoto line-up. I am getting this one no matter what.
Petka: I suspect the oil is coming from the shutter assembly. It might be a new design and nobody had the mind to do a longer test to see if there is an oil spray problem in it, or the units are assembled with too much oil or with oil not sticky enough. Careless design project control in any case. Problem might go away with time after excess oil has splattered away or dried a bit, but taking the camera for cleaning for a few times is annoying, especially if you have to pay for it.
During the film era this would not have mattered at all, as oil did not accumulate on anything.
this leaking oil has been a problem since D7000 came out, my D800 also has the same issue. I think I might buy back Canon SLR soon.
Chaitanya S: hope Nikon's quality control doesn't screw this camera like they did with some of their previous cameras. My experience was terrible with Nikon products in past.
both D7000 and D800 I own have problem with oil leaking onto sensor. I have sent both the cameras for service quite a few times but I still have oil spots on the sensor. worst part of oil spots is that when they appear I am hundereds of kilometers from the nearest service center, photographing reptiles/amphibians. Before these two Nikon cameras I owned Pentax cameras(film) and then went to own Canon D-SLR's.
