Using it's own manual lenses with the help from today's technology!... HUMMM!!!! :DThat is something that canon SHOULD learn!!!Oh wait, they are busy making APS sized point&shot, and trying to sell it more expensive then a reflex! (SIC!)And I'm not even going to speak about trying to stop us from using ALL the other amazing lenses from ALL other manufacturers from ALL photography history!!! -_-(Anyone that tries the sweet Olympus OM 50mm f1.4 will understand me! ;D)
well, i have to say, each year that passes I'm closer to leaving canon and going micro4/3!
nativetree: Good news! Thank you! Please consider the review of the Nikkors 16-85 VR and the 70-300 VR :)
Why in hell always Canin or Nicon?Do people realise there is also Tokina; Tamrom and Sigma etc etc???Not to mention Sony, Pentax and obviously ZEISS! But the ones before being the ONLY ONES UNIVERSAL are actually the ones that will inform more people INDEPENDENTLY of which brand is their camera!!!
FINALLY!!! I always though they were some of the very best ever available in the internet!!! XD
Jen003: Fabulous shot! I was in this challenge myself but truly think this should have won. Beautifully lit and sharp and great expression on the fish.
I agree for the MOST!Thanks for pointing it Jen003! The surrounding cenario in this photo is ABSOLUTELY Fantastic!!! :O
But, the pity is that the fish has not an evident hello like some others :/
WUOA!!!! Amazing!!! :O
Nice Photo and Amazing place!!! :D
where is this??? XD
jsis: He's a product manager. In other words, he's actually not the one who makes the decisions to build the camera. The guy doesn't know anything more than the salesperson at Best Buy.
VERY GOOD that you gave us that information PLShutterbug! It doesn't have to mean bad intentions on someone: we (at least I) don't work in that area and as such we DON'T know it!!! :)THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING REAL KNOWLEGE!!!Way too MANY times is the most needed AND lacking thing in these posts! :)
Rage Joe: The Beautiful Sound of fellow students
I began to kind of hate Leicas already during my photography studies, when some idiot fellow students who hardly did any shooting were going: "listen to the beautiful sound of that leica-shutter".
A little bit of Rage:)
Lets face it, Leica is just for the snobs and the insecure.
I have to say Rage Joe has some EXTREMELY GOOD POINTS THERE!!!We could be lead to a a completely different idea with his first post, a bit like the leica lovers spoke against him: with no valid logical arguments!BUT his second post spoke two EXTREMELY IMPORTANT POINTS THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN BAD IN LEICA M!!! We can even see M users going to Fuji PRECISELY because of that!!!
whoever says that SEEING WHAT YOU ARE PHOTOGRAPHING is not important probably should just give away all his equipment and stop saying ANYTHING about REAL Photography!...But naturally those trolls who act like they were payed by this OR that camera maker will keep acting like ones without even a SECOND THOUGH!!!
It is really a PITTY! :/And mostly for them! (but also for those they attack with nonsense and false arguments!)
david kohn: a camera for the Romney family....
Yes! Keep politics OUT of dpreview!
nawknai: The sad thing is that there's nothing "Hasselblad" about this product. It's a Japanese guy in Swedish clothes.
You may argue that Hassy are, like Leica, one of the few photography companies that can pull off selling a $6000 mirrorless camera, but Leica can because Leica make Leica cameras, and they exist mostly in their own Leica bubble and come up with products that they like and understand. They are auteurs. While everyone else is involved in pushing the market, pricing their products in tiers that align with their competitors, engaging in price wars, and coming up with features that out-do their competitors, Leica is just making high quality stuff that they enjoy using. People like small-scale individualism, whether it's a small business on Etsy, or an old camera company.
Hasselblad is a photography company, but this product does not clearly have Hasselblad's fingerprint deeply engrained, and so it won't be deemed worthy of its price tag.
Nawknai, your first post was just perfect! No need to say anymore, anyone informed and that like to think understood it! :)
berze: Check out lensrentals:http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/09/product-announcement-lensrentals-looney
THANK YOU for showing it to us!!!
VERY VERY good!!! :D
The guys at lensrentals are REALLY GOOD!!! :D
a mirrorless APS for $6500?!?!! :OGold?wood?
Please, give me a break!!!
it's a shame people in m4/3 don't think more out-of-the-box like Olympus did with the f2.0 lenses, why such a short zoom? this is NOT 135format! Things ARE DIFERENT, and they should take the oportunities to make them BETTER by using the smaler format advantages!!!But they mostly keep going to the SAME OLD VALUES, like 2.8Xzoom etc etc.
FTW: The body sells 2099$. At that price, the D600 is a better deal
nellydesign: its purely a markting question!!! Otherwise it would be better then 5mkIII for studio&many others like interiors etc
UAU! a camera that is LESS in almost every important thing then ALL the others!And yes, ALL photographers were dying for wi-fi instead of a flash (that controls others!) or some 11 CROSS AF points!!!Maybe in next model they will put an MP3 player and loose ISO manual control!!! X(
Canon user since my first lens in98. But they sure are making an effort to se me changing for nikon! ):(
geoffreyc: This has made my mind up - I'm getting another 7D!
Only useful feature for me is the addition of GPS - price of that (GP-E2) + 7D body + grip still cheaper than 6D and my 100-400L will have more reach than using on FF body.
NOT if the same ppl will be in charge at Canon: I expect already:- no flash- SD cards only- new smaller and worst battery- less cross AF points!- Same LOUD shutter
The A-Team: I'll probably get this camera, but it would have been nice if it had the following features:
- APS-C lens compatibility- Swivel + touch screen- built-in flash w/ speedlite control- AF during video (ala Canon 650D)
Otherwise, I don't mind the simplified 60D-like body design and the 11 AF points. I only use the center point anyways.
A-TEAM: I agree with EVERYTHING, except the AF points!
Edmond Leung: It seems full frame is already the trend...Yesterday was Sony...Today is Nikon...Where is the low-priced "full frame" for Canon and Pentax?I'm doubt how long can 4/3 stay in the market.4/3 and APSC may be faded out very quickly.
sure! try to make a ff as small&light as a m4/3!!! Especially the lenses!!! Sony is an EXXXCEEEEELENT exemple on that!!! ;)
bradleyg5: Canon 5d mark II is still the cheapest full frame camera available. This has got some clear feature advantages, but the shutter is only capable of 1/4000 and rated to be less durable.
I don't think Canon needs to respond to this, the 5dII is already sub 2k if they can get the price down to 1700 it's more than enough to compete with this.
no need for progress??? :o
sure! the sutofocus in 5DII is AMAAAAAIZING!!! the construction also! etc etc!!! Give me a break! -_-
