Paul B Jones: At least they have profits to plunge.
Yep, at least nice to still have some space below to plunge. But hitting the rock bottom will be a final destiny.
Steven-T: The Copper 13 Slim looks nice. But 1.2Kg is just WAY too heavy for travel, particularly for high altitude extended hiking.
I use an old small shoulder Domke (replaced by F-5XB?), weighs less than 0.6Kg, carry a M9, A7Rii, four M-lenses (WATE, MATE, 35Lux, 90/2.5), adapter, cards, passport, etc. Every milligramme counts.
Plus GPS, solar power panel, 4-season tent, -20C sleeping bag, wet floor pad, trekking poles, . . . ?

A bit slow. If it were f/2.8-4.5, I would most probably buy one for my GH4 for social filming.. . . Steven
Mister Joseph: Nice, 200-500 5.6 for $1300. I guess I won't be hand-holding my shots with that 2.3Kg lens though.
200-500 f/5.6 VR for $1300! I will buy a couple to use as baseball bat, a few as boat anchors, some paper weights too, . . . What's the hack!
Excellent use of light. Fantastic work.
Sad Joe: Very clever - so others are making it easy to leave Canon and I though that Canon had that covered already since they seem bent on bringing out expensive and naff products... I'm a very unhappy Canon Fanboy...
Count me in. I haven't spent money on Canon gears for 3 years, and parring down my L collections.Will get a EOS-NEX smart adapter soon. The Metabones also features an Arca-Swiss quick release tripod mount. Nice.
APS-C sensor, with live view, built-in EVF, built-in flaSH, smaller "relatively" cheaper MX lenses, with M lens adapter, size as X1. This will compliment the M9 series greatly, particularly on macro and telephoto, for me.
