Branko Collin: If I've learned anything from some of the arm-chair lawyers in this thread, it's that Lensrentals.com must be filthy rich by now because of all the copyrights that automatically devolve to them every time someone takes a photo with rented gear.

@Branko, sorry, my mistake. Now when I read this, I see your sarcasm, but when i read it 2 months back i could not.

raztec: Canon, you have achieved the impossible!!
From market leader to the laughing stock of manufacturers.
Keep racing to the bottom. You're almost there.

Revenant,
The point of raztec is, such a reputed giant like Canon don't do such a silly thing as this foolish campaign.

jaykumarr: Canon has achieved the IMPOSSIBLE to imagine.

DPR asked readers to guess the product. one reader said 'FF mirrorless' , another said 'Medium format camera with EF lens', another claimed a 36MP FF , another a wifi printer. None of DPR readers were able to imagine that there is 'NO PRODUCT' actually.

it was impossible for everyone to imagine Canon will announce nothing after this teaser. Yet Canon did the impossible.

Sorry, I am bad in English from childhood. But Canon's job yesterday was worse than my English. So I went on to post the comment.

AT CANON, WE SEE (that it is) IMPOSSIBLE to improve IQ,DR in our sensor.

In reply to:

Entropius: I wonder how the AF compares to the system in the D7100, the closest thing Nikon makes? AF speed and accuracy, more than anything else, is the killer feature for the sort of action work that this thing is designed for.

The original poster clearly wrote his intention : 'AF speed and Accuracy' .
Every reply talks about fps.

5 years back, then 7D came, the rest was history. err the "rest" became history.

Nikon D3S had 12MP, their top notch D300s had 10 MP.

7D came with 18MP, superior sensor, superior LCD, superior focus speed, superior buffer, superior everything. Infact is was overwhelming for Canonians and initmidating for Nikon corp. (Nikon corp then played "more MP more evil" song then). I saw lot of photographers using superior 7D in their superior 100-400mm lens 400mm lens which are absent in Nikon. (or you have to pay 10K for their 500mm nikon lens).

Now, 7DII has arrived. It has less MP, inferior sensor, inferior LCD but still superior focus speed, superior buffer.

There is no question if it is Twice better. It is not.

In reply to:

quiquae: Given that this is a zoom and not a 600mm prime, I wish it had a somewhat shorter MFD. (I know it isn't trivial.)

thanks tkbslc

also tjere raises the question.. what is minimal focusing distance at 600mm, if 230cm were for short end?

So, this is all Canon has for this photokina ? already Canon is lagging behind. OR did I miss any canon announcement news?

I am amazed 5 people liked Branko Collin's comment.

If we extend Branko's logic, all photos are owned by Canon Inc, Nikon inc, Olympus inc etc and the photographer is monkey.

Looking at the quality of photos, I conclude that:
"on average, monkeys are better than photographers"

In reply to:

Yannis1976: Would be interesting to compare with similarly priced m4/3 zoom kits e.g. G6+14-140mm or Oly+14-150mm. Also there is no mention I think about macro performance.

JordanAT,
20lbs + back pack you carried and 2 lbs FZ1000 you want to carry are your preferences.
Smart people might choose something decent between, about 4 lbs.
if you don't want to discuss about DOF, fine the cleaner iso capability will make APS C dslr a better choice.

Which 18-250 kit lenses are f/2.8? -- irrelevant as FZ1000 is not F2.8, a APC-C sensor will have a shallow DOF even with smaller aperture , and has higher iso capability to compensate lower light available and lower noise side effect.

skimping 30-50% on the long end -- 250 * 1.6 x crop factor > 400 mm zoom.

What light you buy back with the larger sensor you throw away with a dark lens, and any detail you ends up getting thrown away when you have to crop to the center of the frame -- these should be tested and proven. Not claimed just.

I have no doubt that FZ1000 will perform very well in such comparison. But the colors, smoothness will be poor.
