ericsan: Canon is a conservative company wishing to protect their highly profitable DSLR's market...nothing wrong so far by not investing into mirroless segment ! When mirroless market will start to erode their DSLR's sales & leader position (if it does one day...) Canon reaction will be to launch the best mirrorless products to be N°1 on that segment !!
If every product is an experiment or test as u said this question "The EOS M was a somewhat conservative entry into the mirrorless market - was it a failed experiment?" is absurd.Since every product is a test no need to ask such question right?And his reply was "Well it was certainly an experiment!";but he would have answered this question as "hey isn't every product an experiment?" But yes he is not as smart as you are.Who told you that I want Canon to stop making DSLRs?Does Canon have to test new contrast detection AF system on its mirrorless cameras?(reffering its first mirrorless' AF performance) Who is talking about taking wedding photos by using a phone (at least today's technology) are you high or what? Questions questions...I don't expect any reply for my questions above just tell me Mr.Businessman;you said "every new launch of any product by any company is test becasue it s unknown and untested" so when Mercedes releases a new car,is it also a test? Yeah I guessed so.
Peter K Burian: Well the entire market for stock images has crashed since so many agencies give photos away for free or for $2 or $3. A lot of high volume users (including the Toronto Star newspaper) work with Dreamstime for example, which is penny stock: ...... <b>Purchase a plan to download stock photos: free high resolution stock images or from 23 cents per image. Choose the Corporate account option for an easier administration of your company's stock photography needs.Download any stock image from our amazing collection of 21 million images & illustrations.</b>
IMO;if the photo itself is pro no matter who took it,pro or enthusiast.
Zerg2905: Smartphone: "I know Kung Fu!"Canon: "Show me."
Cheers. :) + !
Well :)They probably said the exact same thing when other companies announced their first mirrorless cameras.
Let me explain with Mr.Shimbori's own words;"Well it was certainly an experiment!".Canon was making fun with its customers' money.Please don't get me wrong guys they are all the same.Nikon's oil dust scandal is another topic.
I didn't read the article yet (I have a terrible headache now,I will later) but I can say that shadows of the models are distracting.
What about D7000 owners?!
TOF guy: This a commendable move by Nikon. Never too late to do the right thing. But this is not enough if Nikon wants its reputation back. The many early D800 adopters with mis-calibrated AF sensor are left behind. Nikon needs to address this issue as well.
If only one person missed a shot or because of that dust issue a single image of him/her ruined,yes too late.
An epic fantasy from Sigma :)
7 days and nothing will be the same again :P
Thomas Kachadurian: For me there was nothing new I wanted.
I would like to know what gear you have :) I am not kidding really.Most of us (included me) want more and I appreciated your comment.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...
giliath: Seems like an awesome uwa. But please! I need native iso100 for landscape photography!
Naveed do you know why people buy and use ND filters?Lets say you have 3 stops ND filter and you can take a shot with 2 sec f22 iso 200 if you had iso 100 your f stop would be 16 which means better image quality (or you could take a photo with 4 s which means a lot for day light long exposure photography)and even if u had iso 50 you wud be more free to chose those values.And sometimes you want to take a shot with f1.8 but your max shutter speed is 1/4000 for fuji x pro1 and you will need to use an ND filter to make this shot (which drops the image quality which is important especially if it s a portrait shot) I have never needed to take a shot at ISO 3200 or more but yes I needed smaller ISO values.BTW I know some cameras have some creative filters ND included which is really good but still if you had smaller ISO values that ND filter feature would be more useful with an extra 1 or 2 stops ISO advantage.
Xentinus: Looks pretty but too big for Fuji x system cameras.
OK lets go step by step to be sure you got the point.Your comment is the second the most nonsense comment i have ever seen (ur next comment will the the most:) )...Because;I said it is too big You said you own x system camera :D wow grats!!I wish you said "no its size well balanced with fuji x system".Not to own a camera doesnt meant you can't make comment. And since i have something to compare with it (I have Nikon d7000 and Tokina 12 24 on it and it s really well balanced..And while Fuji 10 24 lens has almost the same size with Tokina 12 24)Yes I have right to say "hey it s pretty but too big ".This is my opinion and you cant change it...I also think that if it was 10 or 12mm prime ultra wide angle lens with smaller size Fuji would be really more attractive to me.

Ayoh: Hmm you like a 40mm pancake, wish there was a 21mm version and think a 31mm lens would also be useful...ah if only someone made such eccentric lenses
I laughed so hard :D
if the only matter is size,pentax has really small bodies with lovely limited lenses.to be honest i would not pay for a piece of plastic which is written canon on it.
There s a cat on 10 :P
respero: "Pentax says that the AA simulator is most effective when the shutter speed is under 1/1000 sec." Invites interpretation that AA is most effective for shutter time < 1/1000 sec, which is backwards. Strictly, speed < 1/(1000 sec) = 0.001 s^-1, or time > (1/1000) s.
Respero is right ;) 1/1000>1/2000 I always prefere to say faster or slower,instead of under or over.They mean AA simulator is more effective when shutter speed is slower than 1/1000 .
opiecat: ring type ultrasonic motor? for a kit lens?
for a €620 lens*maybe the question should have been "(probably) plastic mount for a €620 lens??"
