This camera stands alone as the greatest digital camera the world has ever seen.
Mirrorless Crusader: You all must be dirt poor to be unable to appreciate how awesome it would be to cruise around with a badass camera like this. Nobody is suggesting that you use this as your main camera. Rich people don't drive their classic cars or their ferraris to work but they obsess over them just the same, and a camera like this is no different.
That's probably why people who love this camera have money and people who hate it don't.

Retrospective is still the best camera bag
These photos look like they were taken by a 7-year-old.
#1: Not a wildlife photo and the horizon is tilted - terrible technique. Not to mention the choice for black and white is baseless.#2: Should be horizontally inverted in post and the photo lacks detail#3: Not a wildlife photo#4: Way overprocessed and photoshopped#5. Terribly framed. A bunch of negative space on the right and the bird chopped off on the left#6: Not enough detail, poor composition, should be horizontally inverted, and impossible to tell what's going on.#7: Not a wildlife photo#8: Not a wildlife photo, that animal is domestic as you'll ever see.
These images are average quality. The composition is good but not great, the saturation levels are appropriate, but the white balance is blatantly and arbitrarily warm in many of the images. The lightingwas very poorly done in some of these images, especially #1 with the foreground being desperately needing flash and in some other images the flash was used inappropriately. Overall I would grade this a C+. I certainly could have done better with thousands of dollars worth of gear and enough money to spend all day taking pictures without having to work for a living.
Nothing special; anybody could have taken those pictures if they were rich and insane enough to spend their time biking to every third world country they can find.
Are there any lenses that explode if you drop them or smash them against something?
StevenE: What about the scores of incredibly lucky photos captured by accident. They were not knowingly planned.As a photographer, you will have to keep your mouth shut about everything you do, and say only: I planned this shot and it came out exactly as I had intended.Say nothing else to anyone, ever.
Wrong, all you have to do is take your own damn pictures.
cgarrard: DOH- No battery cover door :)
Do I get a prize?
Actually Carl you get a a big fat demerit for not even reading the article which plainly states that the battery cover is part of the battery.
Just one more reason why Oly and Sony >>>> Canikon
This is not image theft, you are transforming an image with a watermark into an image without a watermark.
BRPWS: After all the bad things you guys wrote about this camera how does it get a silver award? Your review and your award contradict each other.
The reason is because they have to market the camera so they can sell it in Gear Shop (conflict of interests much?) so they give every Canikon camera an award because that's how DPR makes money.Most shoppers never read the reviews and just look at the awards.
$1750 for a kit lens, what a joke
OLY OLY OLY!
I'VE SAID IT ALL ALONG - OLY WILL NEVER GO OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE THEIR REASON TO EXIST ISN'T TO TURN A PROFIT IT'S TO CREATE THE MOST LEGENDARY CAMERAS THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN! AND CANIKON CAN NEVER COMPETE WITH THAT!
I guess the AP has never heard of something called common sense. Nobody wants to see that camera in the corner. I don't care how many other people were filming the guy and it is immaterial to the significance of the photograph. What is the AP going to do next, fire people for cropping?
Obvioiusly no coincidence that there isn't a single Canikon product that could even win its own category. Of course it doesn't help that Canikon has no idea how to do mirrorless, though it's not long they ever had a ghost of a chance to win that category no matter what they did, considering the E-M1 and A7R,
Oly wins two years in a row. Sony the year before that. I doubt you'll ever see a DSLR win camera of the year ever again.
