On article Canon announces budget-friendly EOS Rebel T6 (1300D) (895 comments in total)
In reply to:

nandbytes: So manufacturers have started a competition in going the other way in megapixel count.

So I take it this new 18mp sensor will offer some good ISO performance?

I think its a 5 year old design. I would not expect it to be on par with nikon, sony, samsung, pentax or even the RX100

Would be nice to see how large the image circle is since the camera used was FF.

Who would benefit most from buying all the R&D / Assets?

Mssimo: I think canon should come out with a 1D Mirrorless camera with EF mount.
Crazy? Hear me out...

Maybe key features can be:

-No VF Blackout with very low latency.
-Medium format size viewfinder with enhanced low-light vision.
-Lots of room for sensor based stabilization (works with lens based IS)
-Face. eye and object detection (Configurable object color(s) AF for sports photography)
-Near edge to edge focus points; over 300-600 AF points(edge points will have to be contrast detect due to the physics limits of phase detection)
-Global Shutter (outcome, very high shutter speeds 1/32,000++ & 100% silent operation & theoretically unlimited "e-shutter" life)
-Frame Rate 20-30 FPS
-4k video (6k+ low FPS or timelapse)
-No autofocus calibration needed, perfect focus every time, at every focal length, any aperture.
-Now possible: Square sensor (no need for vertical grip, larger than current full frame and full support for all current lenses. 1:1 aspect ratio
-Im serious: VR headset support

VR headset or microsoft holo lens style could possibly replace the viewfinder all together. Motion and eye sensors would target subject. VR headset would show frame around subject. This is getting a bit into the future but you can see where im going.

This is the game changer Canon needs.

Feel free to add the features you would like to see.

In reply to:

dmanthree: I think these pix are fake. I took the finest hacksaw I have and cut my D810 in half, and the damned pieces fell all over the place. Same thing happened to the lenses I tried to slice.

VR should only be enabled on the saw itself. good luck!

historianx: Fine and dandy Sigma, but what about updating your woefully mediocre 24-70/2.8 to Art status?

@michel F They have these lenses called superzooms. They go from 24-300+. Why stop at 70 80 90 or more...?

Link | Posted on Feb 24, 2016 at 02:11 UTC

The biggest issue with sigma is support for RAW files. Last time I used sigma RAW converter it was a nightmare. Crashing, taking 15 secs to refresh after making a simple exposure adjustment and so on. If they could only work with adobe or another company to get raw support in third-party software.

Mssimo: Did they upgrade the battery size?

i hope that huge battery above it also fits the camera. Battery grip is a plus.

I'm sorry but this is as exciting as a new water heater and I'm not talking about the tankless model with endless hot water; that would be unfair to the water heater.

photomedium: Foolish product, it doesn't fit on a selfie stick. Time for camera makers to get on a twelve step program.

Maybe they have a selfie stick bigger than yours. You drive a truck by the way?

Neodp: This is horse manure. Mixed with technical intrigue. It is not the big picture. It's far to one sided for that.

Also, who the heck said, "how tough can it be?" to make complex lenses and tend to quality control. No one! Are we having broad lens fail/quality issues? No we're not.

Why are you suggesting lens have to be so expensive (and so you should consider renting them)? How can this not be a conflict of interest?

Still it is fine for DP to point to this article. Just like it's fine for me to say the article is BS. No ones saying lens are simple. What about the the entire camera system; that just starts with the lens? What good is a great lens without the rest?

Sensor issues next?

No. The real issue is BS like this constantly pushing the propaganda and half "truths" to inflate prices for the manufactures and sellers.

The buyers say BS! Do your job. As if it's OK to produce crap lens (or otherwise). As if this can't be helped. I mean really. How stupid do you think we are?

Roger was giving a insight to manufacturing and the world of compromise in engineering. A manufacture can test every lens and rebuilt/adjust as needed but that is going to increase costs, at some point they have to draw the good enough line. Zeiss for example MTF tests every single lens out the (COSINA) factory. Every lens has the MTF recorded and theoretically you could request that document for your serial number. The same model lens may have good center sharpness vs other samples may have great mid to edge. Roger has been writing articles about this for years now. He has invested hundreds of thousands on OLOF optical machine custom made for this reason, not for writing articles but for keeping his customers happy. Rental business is not easy with ever picky customers that live out realistic expectations realm. For some reason I think you would get along with Jessy Ventura.

(unknown member): As a lens designer once told me "It is far harder to design and build something like an 18-55mm kit lens than it is a no expense spared exotic lens with aspheric and rare glass elements. However most consumers usually assume the opposite."

lets boycott kit lenses and maybe in a year or so we will have otus down to $400 bucks.

marike6: Oh wow, another Sony NEX E-mount body for almost double the price of the A6000, the same atrociously bad kit lens and perhaps the least inspiring lens lineup ever produced.

They have not been called NEX for a few years. This is not a replacement for the A6000, its a higher end model. A6000 will stay on sale. Double the price? Are you comparing used or refurb to new fresh model on the market?
