If you're reading this to get into photography remember you can also buy an older model, new or used, even from a higher tier, for the same money; however strong the lure of tech is, you will always make a much bigger difference than the camera. While I have a recent 70D I have no problem still using the 30D I got in 2008, knowing its limitations. In other words you can make a small investment, still get superb gear and get great shots.
Really? Wow, that was unexpected. If it helps for macro, might be the reason to get an eos-M... So at least for generating interest it's a win for Canon.
And Ford produces a car that can only turn to the right. Less than zero.
Looks really, really nice.
I hope it comes with dramamine.
Very cool subject. The camera and lenses look swell, skin tones come out well, although I might miss something even wider, and seeing that huge lens at the end brings home the relativity of smaller cameras.
"What's the fun in RAW" vs goofing around with filters...
It's very good looking, I just hope it's comfortable to use. My Canon look more mundane but are very comfortable and get out of the way I'm shooting, can't ask for better ergonomics - I'm sure other brands do just as well.
Bad, bean counter decision: drop the price to make it a contender ($400 USD), find a nifty way of connecting a decent viewfinder that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and make it easy to share decent pics, plus RAW...
This is where I part ways with dpreview; the fact that there are many decent cameras does not mean it doesn't matter which you choose, but it does mean you should invest in your own technique, the opportunities to shoot, developing an eye, and then seeing if that decent camera isn't trapping you into a lens swamp, à la Sony.
New lens to shoot at walls or take a short trip? Take the trip, please.
Informative, which is always good in my book.
Tech tour de force by Sony, and an easy answer to the typical "what's the best pocketable camera I can buy?" question. Saw version III in person, the geek in me wanted it really bad, the photographer cringed at the ergonomics. I hope they sell by the thousands, won't compensate for poor composition and no knowledge of technique.
Sounds like an infomercial.
Good review, the cameras look really nice, my only worry would be the ergonomics for the T6s back wheel, nothing a trip to the store can't cure.
Looks very nice. "Canon should expect some cancelled EOS 5DS orders..." and Sony should expect more cancelled lens orders...
STM, metal connection, and still cheap, nice!
What a shame, at least they caught it and acknowledged it quickly.
