Mikhail Tal: Giving a gold star for this camera is a joke. It's literally the worst current DSLR there is. The lack of articulating screen alone should make it a complete afterthought. The only people who will buy this camera are complete suckers.

"Mikhail Ta"l just doesn't understand that there are lot's of people that like and use different styles and types of camera. I've used the EOS 100D and it was a dream to use and the images i captured were outstanding.

JackM: All that to produce boring images. What a waste of resources.

Don't start the Canon V Nikon thing again. Some great shots buy good equipment. Both brands make great gear and both would have produced great results. Nikon were just in their first this time. Canon had all the glory at the Olympics.

saralecaire: Panasonic has been doing rack focusing like this since the G3, finally when Canon catches up it's a "wow" thing? Sure, the have the dual-pixel tech behind it and whatnot, but the practical effects are essentially what other brands have done for quite a while now. Nothing too innovative here.

As with Sony Pana have tried this with little success. Used both for video and dumped them as they failed to deliver.

Princess Leia: This is not innovation. Sony has been doing the phase detection autofocus with their SLT cameras for a while now. Having said that, it is nice to know Canon is playing catch up.

You are joking aren't you. Sony have tried to do this. I've used Sony and it basically didn't do what it said on the tin...

M Jesper: If they release this i would forgive them for using that same 18MP sensor in everything since the beginning of time. And it would explain why it took so darn long ...

A 4th generation 18MP sensor is the same as the 1st generation is it? Research before you type in the future...

Just realised I replied to a spammer on here. "tell the truth" seems to live on another parallel universe. Watch out DP Review

A Pro lens for the stuff people make money from. Always moaning about price. This is a precise piece of equipment and what it does is outstanding (tried one 2 months ago..). I think it's worth more and is for Pro photographers who need nothing but the best....

When will people realise the Pixel war is over. 18mp is great on an APS-C size sensor. It's only the consumer lead brands that try to fool the public that you need more holes on your sensor. At least Canon brings out a product that does what it say's on the tin and doesn't do what higher spec toys scream and shout about.
I'll stick to an actual camera brand and not brands who buy, re-brand and license technology names to themselves.

Just been reading through some of the comments below. Canon should thank their stars that the people who are trying their best to find fault with this camera know not what they speak.
Adding a swivel screen would do 2 things... Make it bigger and the screen size would have to be smaller. People this is the nearest thing to Dr Who's Tardis that you'll get. When you can break the laws of Physics please share with the world and brands will buy it from you.
This will beat Sony's and Olympus's try and fail cameras, that promise so much on the box but fail when it comes to the real world.

The Canon Experience Centre in Canada must have made them think "Good idea why didn't we do that first..."

If they've got their color reproduction sorted they might actually have a pretty good camera here.

Played with the EOS 6D not long ago and was really pleased with the results. This is not a camera for action or sports. It's a great FF camera with excellent IQ (as good as the MkIII on stills). The size was nice in the hand and access to the controls was very easy to use. The WiFi is an outstanding feature with the app. Easy to install and even easier to use. As for the usual complainers, please try before you moan. I've said this many times spec's are not all that makes a good camera and the EOS 6D is proof of that...

EOS 5D MkIII is an absolute star of a camera. Stunning photo's and unbeatable video. All the others are chasing but will never get to what the MkIII can do...

Tord S Eriksson: Just came back from the camera shop, and while there I handled the G15 and the RX100. The RX100 feels so much more refined than the G15, but I guess manual shooting with the G15 might be easier (I liked the exposure changing thumb wheel a lot!). The ring around the lens was very stiff, and hard to set exactly, though.

The XZ-2 was unavailable, but I own a XZ-1, so I know the feel of it. I find the Xz-1 to be a good one-hand camera (in good lighting), and the UW housing you can buy for it is superb (I mount my 77mm close-up lens in the housing - works perfect, even on land)!

Looking forward to the full review!

You didn't try the G15... The G15 does not have a ring around the lens for setting anything... The ring adaptor is taken off when using a tele converter or adding filters. I'm enjoying using my G15 alot...

dpLarry: What I would actually like (I'm a G12 owner) is a 2/3" or 1" sensor with 8 to 10 mp.

Of you go a build it. You may make some money... :)

Robert Eckerlin: I understand and appreciate that use of the excellent dpreview is free. Thanks for the excellence of the website.

I would appreciate however if the reviews of that class of camera would include information about the dynamic range (allowing me to compare the dynamic range of cameras of that class).

For me, the dynamic range (even for that type of cameras) is one of the most important criterias (other important charachteristics for me are of course the dimensions, the zoom-range, optical viewfinder, the visibility of the subject on the screen in bright/sunny environments,...)

Thank you in advance for considering that for future reviews

Open up your own website and review yourself. If there was a review for every point in detail. Every Review would be a War and Peace. Be a little realistic...
