jaxson: These seem to be teasing anyone with any remaining faith in the company.
Everyone else just gets a good old laugh out of it.
By the time the Pentax is available Nikon will have a D900 and D810 be around 1800USD.
Pentax are just too slow to market.
Atazoth: This thing looks like it would be fun to use because of it’s size and durability. I don’t do much video. I also don’t have a back up camera on my SUV I could also use it for that. Just a good back up camera cost 200 dollars or more and you have to have a dedicated screen. I haven’t seen one you can use a phone or tablet with.
Why not just get a chinese clone for 40 bucks if you are using it for a back up camera.
Easy, manual override controls and a mount with a long flange.
E mount has a short flange so it is hard to adapt to other cameras.
Re tweaking the specs based on the 6300 announcement. Need to remain competitive.
Cmon guys the A6300 has more comments than Canons flagship. Lets buff this post more so it looks competitive.
Pretty expensive for E mount.
Isn't it better to get Canon L lens and an adapter for the price you are paying. Sure speed is sacrificed but it shouldn't be too long before someone develops an adapter that has reasonable focus speed.
E mount you are stuck with Sony.EF mount is more versatile.
just noticed, did they get a giant to hold the camera.
calson: If someone wants to shoot 4K video they get a card slot that takes the standard Canon Cfast memory card. If a pro shoots stills only then they lose a card slot.
As with Nikon I wish the camera manufacturers would work on making smaller and lighter cameras for those who don't use tripods and hand hold the camera for hours at a time.
Instead we get higher fps that the majority of photographers will seldom or never need. It is like the auto industry that gives us faster and larger gas guzzlers with more horsepower for the buyers that are deluded by the marketing hype.
Technology trickles down to other models. If we don't push the limits and improve we all still be shooting film.
Jim222: Here's hoping the sensor makes it into some more affordable cameras in the line. I have been stubbornly refusing to upgrade until Canon hits it with a really good new sensor; this could be it!
I'm pretty sure people don't buy a Canon for its sensor.
Good publicity stunt, kind of like the Miss Universe contest.
One way to stop gray imports.
Look at the styling of Fuji cams and you can see that target market is only shrinking.
The only way they can be number 3 is if they managed to squeeze a crop sensor into the Instax Mini. I heard they are great sellers.
Google maps had this many years ago.
Did anyone see this coming?
No complaining, just be happy there is an upgrade path for those still on the 300.
Rick Knepper: Why does this seem like a Sony-centric forum? Because of the easy adaptability, Canon users have been adapting many brands of lenses long before Sony released their first ILC.
What are you on about? I commented on your post, your post is flat out incorrect. The M3 has focus peaking and an EVF. You and the other 6 likes probably have never picked up an m3.
This will be a nice indoor event lens if priced around 500 and available sometime in the next 12 months.
ttran88: This explains the sudden increase in prices on vintage MF lenses on the web.
I started buying vintage lenses shortly after acquiring the m3. Prices have maybe increased maybe 10% on ebay. From online stores the popular lenses have definitely gone up in price for fast glass.
You can still get legacy zoom lenses for cheap.
50mm 1.4, 1.2 seem to be the most sought after currently.
I have a m3, and it has focus peaking. 3 colors to choose from.
casio calculator watches are making a comeback as well.
Horshack: Nice samples. I wonder how it performs against strong light (flare).
I can't imagine why someone would buy the E-Mount version vs Canon/Nikon mount + adapter - this will give the buyer a much larger resale market and I wouldn't expect any adapter corner issues with this optical formula. Plus the E-Mount version probably just has a built-in EF/F adapter anyway.
I would agree, emount limits the versatility. For manual lens best to get in ef mount. it can be adapted to almost any mirrorless now and in the future. lens will last a lifetime while bodies and mounts will change.
