justmeMN: "Dual Pixel AF has been upgraded to allow continuous live view AF in still shooting that is competitive with some of the best mirrorless cameras." -DPR

Shame on Canon if they don't put this in their next M mirrorless camera.

In 2013, Canon released the 70D with Dual Pixel CMOS AF. That technology was never with put into an M. It's 2016, and the 80D has a new improved version of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. It would be a shame if Canon did the same thing, and didn't put 80D Dual Pixel CMOS AF in the next M. I'm just hoping that Canon doesn't "repeat their history" in this area.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (650 comments in total)

As the owner of a couple Pentax film-SLRs, I hope that this sells reasonably well, so the Pentax brand can survive.

Another award winning photographer who used a Canon camera. :-)

The 80D specs on the Canon USA web site don't mention built-in GPS. It also lists GPS Receiver GP-E2 as an 80D Accessory.

Boss of Sony: This is actually interesting. Pocketable 40x is a first.

Is it possible to have 40X without lens results that aren't noticeably bad? Time will tell..

DavidNJ100: Why would someone buy this over a Sony A6300? For video, the Sony wins hands down. For stills, it isn't clear.

24Mp with the kit lens is a joke. That less couldn't resolve half that resolution with a decent MTF.

Yes, the worst-in-the-industry kit lens that comes with the Sony A6000/A6300 is a joke.

HaroldC3: This is like the update Sony did going from the RX100 to the RX100 II. Canon is still 2 generations behind.

On the bright side, Canon doesn't have inferior Sony colors, inferior Sony noise reduction, and inferior Sony menu systems. :-)

In reply to:

Richard Gough: Does it have GPS or not?

The DPReview blurb says yes (twice) but no mention in the Canon press release and it shows GPS:None in the DPReview specifications

The Canon USA web site shows GPS Receiver GP-E2 as an Accessory for the 80D, so apparently it's not built-in

"Canon has introduced the PowerShot G7 X Mark II with a new DIGIC 7 processor, bringing much-needed improvements to camera performance." -DPR

It's too bad that the releases of the G9 X and G5 X weren't timed so that they could get DIGIC 7 too.

Oh, wow...I thought that every Sony camera got an Automatic Gold Award from DPR. :-) I guess not.

Very stealthy, so ugly that nobody would want to steal it.

At $3299, looking past shortcomings is hard to do. :-)

Their Beauty Retouch mode has it wrong. What's needed is lots and lots of Blur. :-)

Some people are willing to do anything, to get the coveted prize of a free trolley bag. :-)

I'm not into the whole "short legs thing", but Corgis have really sweet faces.

That was very interesting, but kind of depressing, even though he tried to put a happy ending on the article.

At least one camera company is moving to all robotic lens manufacturing. Perhaps that will reduce variability. At least robots don't come to work hung over. :-)

Alternate headline:

"WTF, ... Sony announces 24MP a6300 with no touch screen." :-)
