Did I miss the test of the cycle time? I would have thought that would be included in a review. Surely I read past it without noticing it.
Autopano Pro = Fantastic Software...
AngryCorgi: Question is: How speed-efficient is the pixel-shift mode? Much like on the Olympus, that factor will be the ultimate determining factor on value of the mode.

We will see if the AF is "HIGH SPEED". If it is, these will sell like hotcakes. If not, they probably will have languishing sales numbers.
$2500?? No raw video format? No 24P option? Canon does realize its not the only fish in the 4K pond, right??
AngryCorgi: I'm assuming this is an Aptina sensor still. Can anyone verify?
Well, regardless of the sensor (or until we know for certain), the control layout and design of the body is a huge improvement on the J-series. It appears less "dumbed-down" now and actually configurable.

RT = garbage...its about time microsoft realizes this
AngryCorgi: The CM1 JPEG output is pretty poor and it's lens appears to be nothing special.
Fair enough. :)
Oh, the raws are fine, as far as SNR against the competition. The lens still has a very small sweet spot in the center and drops off to average as you walk toward the edges pretty quick. I only noticed that the JPEG engine seemed to struggle at wrestling out details AND providing noise reduction.
I'm most shocked by how well the GX7 does in this comparison. Their JPEG engine is getting the most out of the sensor. Makes you wonder why Canon purposely ties their hands behind their back in competition by using sub-standard sensors in other devices.

It is said that a smart man learns from his mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. I gather, from the responses in this interview, that Canon may not be employing a large number of wise men.
AngryCorgi: "There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony..."
And that's why your sensors are 2+ generations behind Sony and Nikon and Samsung.
Nikon has no sensor? False. Nikon developed the following sensors: D3/D700, D3s, D4, D4s, DF, D3100, D3200...Nikon states that the D750 sensor is newly designed, suggesting some heavy reworking of the D600/D610 Sony sensor as well. So, yeah...you would be wrong. Care to take a shot across Samsung's bow too? And yes, if you have proven that you can't compete in an area, you'd be wiser to farm those components out to those who can rather than to wallow in failure and ineptitude. But, this interview shows Canon is just a bit too smug to even care.
Daniel Lauring: American's don't want small cameras. HUH?!?f
This was the worst interview yet.
Canon or Maeda as it's rep, seems to lack any bit of humility and this interview only enforces that fact that Canon is a poor listener and completely detached from reality.
Totally agree. Canon hasn't had their ear to the ground in quite a while.

DavidKennard: Is Saiki-san the male version of X-Men's Rogue?
You interviewed him BEFORE 1981? That was rogue's fashion debut. ;)
We'll played, sir.
Will we be able to get the new FF Pentax in kiwi/orange color scheme??
