Randy Benter: The T6s should get a firmware upgrade to add AF micro adjust. I would never use a DSLR without this capability. It would be nice to have a smaller DSLR like this as an option, but apparently Canikon believe that enthusiasts and pros would never want a smaller/lighter camera. The competition is offering some nice options (e.g. E-M1 and X-T1), but Canon still doesn't get it.

AF micro adjustment should be a standard feature in all PDAF DSLR cameras, even the entry-level ones. With the advent of high-precision CDAF DSLM cameras, this is the minimum manufacturers can do to compete. Pentax was wise enough to incorporate it even in its lowly K-r. Snapshooters can let it be in default setting, but those who can see why FF or BF is unacceptable in a modern camera, should be able to use it. Canon wake up!

Well done Fujifilm. 'Glad to see continuous support of fixed-focal lenses.

It's very early to comment on this camera. There's hardly anything there, yet. The mockup looks very tall, necessarily tall for a FF camera and detracts from the aesthetic harmony of the overall design. Pentax can make smaller DSLRs, they have proven it time and time again. We'll wait (I'm afraid rather a long time) and see...

RStyga: I hope that Sigma drops this absurd stickosaurs inflamed-arthritis design and returns to more ergonomic cameras. The high ISO improvement is notable but at the expense of its former brilliant base ISO IQ.

I wouldn't say Foveon is a colour-champion above base
ISO, however.

I'm old enough to have lived the film-only photography days in the 80s and 90s so quit your 'younger gen" rhetoric... it's irrelevant. I also used to own a DP2 but sold it because of its atrocious responsiveness. DPM improved but not enough. RAW recording speed, I implied, before, is another issue. Sigma need to fix what can be fixed (beyond the sensor limitations, that is). You can certainly take impressively high IQ photos but Sigma cameras are tripod-mostly, battery-intensive, take-your-time-only, loose-most-shots, freakishly-clumsy, but-fugly-as-of-Quattro cameras. Do you think that an RX1 or an A7 or 6D won't give you a superb image in terms of IQ?

Save me the BS... Since when AF speed is one of the "endless features" in an AF camera? Battery power, RAW recording, ....

@christom people like me.. you don't know me... and probably younger than me.

It has to, it's the only reason people buy them. In most other respects they are appalling.

RStyga: The design is not as bad as K-S1's but it is, still, a "K-S design"... ugly (especially top view and button design at the back).

No account for taste...

RStyga: Hopefully the WR design will prevent the duo-cam design from sucking dust. The lens is, however, very dark... F4-5.6... a F2.8-4 would be much better even if it would make the lens' diameter larger.

Well, lenses that maximize compactness are not advertised for performance.

I did not state that non-black cameras are badly designed, calm down. I was referring to the design, the shape, form and texture, not the colour.

@stray.. you're being rude & stupid. Have you seen how small the full-frame Sigma AF 28-70mm F2.8-4 DG is?

Diffraction relates to lens aperture and sensor size, not sensor resolution.

RStyga: You call that "news"? I call that "nerve". We'll see IN A YEAR what was this borderline-announcement. Pentax has practically lost the FF train; it has taken them FOREVER and it's better to skip it altogether and jump on the DSLM one.

No, you're not. I'm a forum nazi. :-)

I was shooting with Pentax for years (and still own several K lenses) but not anymore although I still support some models like K10D and K-01. I have every right to comment the way I did.

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)

Canon is doing OK in the FF DSLR segment, barely OK in the enthusiasts APS-C DSLR market, not so well in the entry DSLR segment and downright poor in the DSLM market. I believe their extensive lens base is not helping them decide to invest more on a new DSLM mount and system.
