FrankS009: These are big, heavy cameras with big heavy lenses. Would not want to lug one any farther than I would have to.

F.

...or change laws of physics.

Mikhail Tal: Note to Simon Joinson: The Panasonic GX7 preview still has 40% more comments than the Canon 70D preview, even though the 70D preview has been up longer and been updated with sample images while the GX7 hasn't yet. Time to reevaluate your decision to skip reviewing many m4/3 cameras.

You might want to look at digital camera sales trend which was published here not so long ago and re-evaluate your suggestion.

Some of you constant whiners and whingers...there will never ever be a camera with a "talent" button.

On Camera shipments continue to fall article (136 comments in total)

I wonder what the mirrorless fanboys think of these numbers. They've happily been trumpeting the demise of "cumbersome", "heavy" and "needless" DSLR's for the last couple of years.

hea: I remenber my uncles back in the late 60s, 70s, most people who bougth SLR/Rangefinders, both pro's and amateurs, expected to stay with the camera and lenses for 10-15 years, have no need to be upgrading every year or two.
I bougth my first DSLR a D40 6 or 7 years ago, still is functioning well, I made an upgrading only recently, a D7100, in the mean time I had no need to upgrade, and I think I will maintain my D7100 for years, If not is broken accidentally.

well...world hasn't changed neither has laws of physics but the neo-liberalism/freemarket slaves with less than satisfactory levels of comprehension have been created.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

So it seems the author didn't take commercial/professional purpose photos in the last few months. Could this be why he hasn't used his DSLR? Sure it makes sense taking compact point and shoot cameras along when shooting casually. It all depends on what you want to do with your pictures. I don't think it is a case of chosing one over the other.

DSLR or mirrorles neither is pocketable and the size comparison between them is IMHO senseless.

In reply to:

Marty4650: You really have to wonder.... if mini DSLRs like the SL1 existed five years ago, would there be so much interest in high end MILC cameras today?

It is indeed smaller and more portable, but may be still to large (especially in thickness) for people who want really small cameras.

I think Canon has a good product here, but it arrived too late to the party.

Still... it makes a very nice second camera for people who own a 70D or 7D and have plenty of EOS lenses...

Just incase you've missed compact cameras have better bur much smaller sensors and their overall dimensions are even smaller than mirrorles cameras. According to rumours smart phones have smaller and better sensors than DSLR's.

Hasselblad please just come out clean, stop making cameras and say ''give us your money'' and save us looking at horrendous objects with horrendous price tags like this one and the one before this. You can at least hire a designer right?

Boissez: Somebody should tell Andy that using terms like 'streets ahead' is streets behind.

Andy might be one of the British crew who's moved with the company following Dpreview's acquisition by Amazon and relocated to Seattle hence the majority of sample photos. Am I right A Westlake?

@Boissez...thinks this a writing skills forum. Well then...Samuel Beckett, please tell us about language and expression. But if you are criticising A Westlake's evaluation of the camera in question please enlighten us with your technical wisdom too. We are waiting

If this camera doesn't bring my slippers, make me breakfast in the morning it's boring, yawn. What was Canon thinking for god's sake!!! I want 42 inch EVF which will work in absolute darkness. Puh!!! optical viewfinder. Boooriiinnnng. I don't want anything that will potentially leave me in a compromising position to justify myself amongst my gear head, techno-junkie local photography society friends. Why, why!!!

Before you call this lens expensive I suggest anyone to think again. Yes 12.000$ is a lot of money but not much at all if you are investing in a business. And this lens is for business or for hobbyists with loads of spare cash. Put together 200mm, 300mm, 400mm f4 and 500mm, 600mm f5,6 high quality primes in your bag and think about "heavy" and "expensive" again. I'm not going on to practicality issues yet.

Lea5: What's all the whining about? This camera is not for the average Joe. It is targeting consumers who buy a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes for $2000 and drive them home with an Aston Martin Zagato. For those people the price of the Leica is a bargain. The world is heading to a way of serving the upper 10% only, even Adobe is walking this way. It's becoming a big club and you ain't in it!
(me too btw)

@Lea5...you're very optimistic with your percentage of the upper. I think it' s around 5%.

In reply to:

scrup: Just because you wouldn't buy this camera doesn't mean its bad. The camera is aimed at those that want to make a fashion statement and have extra disposable income.

You won't see these buyers hanging on forums to put down the vanilla cameras that other manufacturers produce.

It seems the people here only approve of gear they actually own and everything else is inferior. I feel sorry for you guys who look through life half empty.

@scrup...The issue here is not whether the camera is good or bad or if one can afford it. Rather It is a sad state of affairs that actually people pay for grossly overpriced piece of an equipment/brand product to stand out from the crowd and think their existence's been enriched by it.
