On Canon EOS 6D sample images added to hands-on preview article (252 comments in total)

For a Beta (testing camera) with Full Frame sensor and higher sensitivity in Low Light than the 5DIII, I think the results look fairly good, especially when you realize that DPreview didn't use anything too fancy in relation to the lenses they used for these sample shots. I'd say Canon are on to a winner with the 6D. They've also managed to trim the size down a little. Nice results and so far the camera looks like it might become quite a success with the lower price for Wedding photographers, Landscape fans (especially with Night Sky themes) and perhaps even the occasional sport photographer.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the staff at DPreview would take the time to respond to the many members requesting they create an EOS-M forum so that owners can stop having to post in the PowerShot forum. The EOS-M is not a PowerShot. It's also not a DSLR. So why no EOS-M Forum like all the other mirrorless ICL cameras?

Other than this, I bought one and I think it's a great camera. Some lenses are clearly faster than others. The AF delay using the 18-55mm IS M-Lens is non-existant. THIS was the lens DPreview should have been using for their tests. I bought the body with EF lens mount and it's been a lot of fun to use with my EF L-Lenses. I honestly thought I'd hate the touch screen but it was fast, intuitive and very responsive in default setting. Great build and works flawlessly with the Speedlite flashes.

On Canon EOS M Preview preview (551 comments in total)

Picked mine up yesterday to use with my other Canon L-series lenses and it's a great camera. Size is just a little bigger than the s95 and a little smaller than the G1X. Picture quality and AF is going to vary based on the lens used. Good lens = excellent images. I tested the 18-55mm-M lens and found it to be VERY fast in relation to Auto Focus. The 22mm-M lens is known to be slower for some reason. The touchscreen is actually very responsive and fast to alter settings with. Being an APS-C sensor, I can get some very lowlight handheld shots with this camera. Works well with my L-lenses (via the included adapter when buying the Body-Only option). Certainly very well built and quite solidly constructed. Just like a DSLR in many respects, including image quality. Faster than my PowerShot G1X in many ways.

On break through in the Airplanes in Flight challenge (10 comments in total)

I'm a professional Digital Matte Painter & Concept Artist in Hollywood and this entry is almost entirely digital. It's a marvelous composition and an appealing image to the eye, but it doesn't belong in this competition (it's not fair to the other entries which were composed with a real camera, rather than an extended session using Photoshop) and I'm surprised it was even allowed to compete. It certainly wasn't composed through the lens of any camera. Your call though. It looks nice to the eye and there were no restrictions on post-processing... probably the reason it was accepted.
