it is an ugly duckling, but I imagine it will render nice images. Count me out for now though at that price

Mike Arledge: Way too much money for that tiny sensor. While it is an impressive piece of equipment, there are too many other options with larger sensors at this price point. With many more lenses to choose from with other systems.

it is not out of my price range, but I question spending this much on ANY M43 at all, I think it is a niche and gimic system that does not warrant these kinds of prices

micahmedia: "...described as a normal lens, offering 'the same angle of view as the human eye,' according to the company."

Bah! Not the "same angle of view", but similar amount of distortion. Angle of view for a single human eye is wider than a 14mm. Maybe as much as a 10mm in some people. In any case, it's wider than either of these lenses, and the description is incorrect.

It's a common mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.

that's for the 32mm lens

I guess I need to see a doctor about my testosterone levels, because apparently all this FF hoopla is not giving me the boner it is giving everyone else... Just be happy we live in such times to have so many GOOD options by so many major brands.

tkbslc: Uh, is it just me, or does this have basically the same specs as the 5D mark III?

EDIT: So far the only advantages I see in the Canon is a few more AF points and 1/8000 vs 1/4000 SS. Going to be a tough sell for that Canon.

NO AF micro adjustments is a BIG deal

You can write a much stronger piece about this main thesis, but this writer just sounds whiny and shallow.

On Canon significantly improves EOS 7D with firmware v2 article (296 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: The 7D is still probably the best APS-C SLR on the market. So why release a new model until someone else makes a dangerous competitor? There may be some newer SLR with very slightly better image quality, but nothing comes that close in terms of a total package. I can see why Canon decided to just keep the current one alive for now.

used to own it, can't crop without noise past ISO 400 in my opinion, it was not a bad camera, but the sensor was not its strong point
