Was really hoping for the "Targeting Pad AF" found on the EM5-II and Panasonics but I don't see it in the list of updates. I do hope they can somehow squeeze it into the said Firmware upgrade.
AdamT: It`ll never win a beauty contest, the A7 series always had the appearance of the EVF hump stuck on as an afterthought but this looks like something is missing on one side .. whatever , IBIS is a good move if it works as well as Oly's 5 Axis does
You're being polite about its looks. I'd call this one an absolute minger.
Miwok: Yawn... just another camera for consumer wannabe pro.The day Nikon will introduce a FF mirrorless who cost around 1K with some glass adapted (AKA not too big),wake me up...
Well put. Nothing to see here. Perhaps a little more interesting than a Canon but otherwise just snooze worthy...
bimmerman: Loxia sounds like a laxative.
You must be dysloxic then. Lol!

The 20D was my last Canon. I ditched Canon for Nikon and never looked back throughout the 30D to 50D and was not even aware there was a 60D. I just lost interest in Canon. Now the 70D seems to be another ho-hum Canon. Better AF in live view for sure but if I wanted great AF in live view I'd use my Olympus OMD. Other than that the D7100 is hard to beat. Too little too late Canon. Good luck with the 80D.
Hubertus Bigend: If the Tamron is good, that would be one obstacle less for me if I should want to buy into Micro FT some day.
On the other hand, what I'm using now is the Panasonic "Leica" 14-150 FT lens, and neither of the two existing MFT superzooms seems to be a match for it. So the Tamron would have to be better than both...
Does the Pana Leica 14-150 focus fast on a m43 body? More like a Panasonic 20mm f1.7 or faster?
bimmerman: Wait a minute, did they say zoom type is extending??? Meaning the length of the lens changes when zoomed??? Oh no!!! say it ain't so Nikon. Why can't they make one like Canon? This is going to be a dust pump!!!
Dang! I could have sworn I saw extending a while ago. The folks at dpreview must have edited it. But I'm relieved. And if I was wrong about it then this is one occasion which I am really glad I was wrong.
Anyway, you said look at the picture of the lens and understand immediately that it's rotary and not a pump. Well, if you looked at the Nikon 17-55/2.8 for the first time would you say it was non extending? Well, the 17-55 is extending, rotary zoom but sucks in dust too.
I'm just glad this one is not. Been waiting forever for it.

Great ideas, poor execution. Seems to be a Minolta tradition and now handed down to Sony as well. I remember Minolta being a great innovator and being leagues ahead of Nikon and Canon back then but sadly... You know the story...
bimmerman: Is it pronounced ly-tho or le-tho or what? And even more curious, how do you pronounce "Ng"?
Buddy of mine from Malaysia just confirmed it's pronounced "erng". In the Fujian dialect of China it literally means yellow and in Cantonese... you tell me. :)

bimmerman: Canon is seemingly forced to reveal vapourware like this because their industrial spies have discovered that Nikon is about to drop a bombshell anytime now. Tick tock tick tock.....
Pressing issues no doubt about that. So it's going to be Nikon vapourware vs Canon vapourware then.
