On Sony a7R II has 42.4MP on full frame BSI CMOS sensor article (1272 comments in total)

I'm a gearhead and this is the first and only camera, ever, that I can think of that honestly isn't missing something. On paper at least, this looks to be the best tool for just about everything but sports. It's a frankenstein of all the best technologies currently available in the market stuffed into one camera.

Canon won't match this for years to come, they have too much invested in their IS lenses and video camera lineup to cannibalize sales, When they do finally offer mirrorless, it won't be fullframe. This camera makes the 5DMKIV out of date and it hasn't even been released yet. They've effectively positioned themselves out of the market with their lineup. Many a misstep have been taken without stepping at all.

I wish canon released something like this but they didn't. This is simply a better tool than what they are and will be producing. brand loyalty has it's limits

Agree or disagree, the real benefit is the bar that is now raised which will benefit all of us.

On Go wide! Hands-on with Canon's 11-24mm F4 L article (228 comments in total)

11mm zoom? This is the second worse decision Canon has made recently. (see the 5DF-ail.

Can't wait to see how distorted the foreground objects will be and how ridiculously tiny the background will be. This is the perfect lens for NYC apartments. Literally nothing else.

The rest of the market is going the way of electric cars and canon is still pushing more horses....

they should have labeled both 5DF.... Fail

(5DMKIII owner) - was keeping my lenses before making the switch to mirrorless to see what they come up with first. Awful. Goodbye.

Cdog: You'll want to take a look at DSLR CONTROLLER. Works perfectly with the google Nexus 7. This combination sets THE standard for how we should be using these tablets in the field.
The app is android only, which is a shame as the Ipad retina screen is best but the form factor (and price) of the nexus 7 is actually preferred for this application. Here's some feature's, and it's only in Beta. (the light weight of the Nexus allows me to attach it to my tripod using a manfrotto nanoclamp and a belkin fat gecko.) The 7" tab actually fits in my pocket and camera bag so I actually take it with me!

One thing to consider, wet the bottom down a little bit (spit will do!) to give it a better seal. Do a test run above a soft surface before committing too. If you attach it dry, it will fall off eventually, I did a video shoot for 4 hours today and had no problems (wet it down first).

They make a dedicated mount for the ipad Waiting/hoping DSLR Controller will find a solution for apple, there are many more options for mounts, cases etc for the ipad and offers a bigger screen.

It's nice to know if you have a cable and either a tablet or an android phone all you need is to carry a cable and you have a remote, timer for bulb, long exposure, HDR, time lapse etc and off camera monitor at your disposal whenever. Not absolutely necessary but handy, especially if your already on android.
