If Canon put 4K on a 5D3 and sell it for $4K, it will hot like D800.

smileblog: In Japan, its brochure is already available in a shop. They say pictures in it are so good and expect it'd be greatest Tamron's lens ever :)

That's what I thought too. Look at the tech spec, Tamron loaded it with special glasses. This is the most important lens range and Tamron could not afford to make a lame lens.

645D: This is a perfect mate to D800, it's optics should be on par to the Nikkors.

Yes, I am sure. I have Tamron 70-200/2.8 and 180/3.5, both have better optics than Canon L counterparts. The 28-75 is also not far behind. Look at the spec of this lens, Tamron is putting all the best glass they have, should be no less than the aforementioned glasses.

Make no sense to buy a DC lens when the FX lens are about the same price.

ZorSy: I think Canon is cautiously checking the market pulse. Without doubts they could add new mount and replace OVF with EVF version and be done with their first mirrorless. New mount and new lenses - easier to be said than done. It just cost a lots of money. For a traditional company like Canon that would still mean rather same number of buyers - but the profit? IMO mirrorless talk is just that - the price of Olympus m4/3 Pen has dropped down significantly and it appears even with such reduced price, the stock is slow moving. Or at least did not take the market as "predicted" by the fans of mirrorless cameras, drastically reducing the sales of classic DSLR. Even Nikon cautiously went with their One series which does not directly bite in DSLR territory. The bottom line is something everyone noticed - the AF speed is still lagging - be it with bolted on or interchangeable lens (which would in kit version still be a slow one on the long end, just much bigger). As a try - nice one.

Actually m4/3 is selling very well. If you check the Japan sales rank, E-PL1 is always on top 10 or top 5. As a long time Canonian, I just bought an E-PL1 for the price a compact camera. Considering I used to paid more for a Canon G2, and a couple of Canon A100 a few years ago. These Pens are no tech leader, but they are the price leader. Olympus is keep selling these to capture the market share.

Canon is on drug or something these days. There is no advantage to buy Canon. For lower end, I would rather buy NEX or NX, which offer smaller body with equal or better IQ and similar price. For higher end, D800 is hands down winner.
For the record, I am no hater of Canon. I own Canon stuff for 20 plus years, still have 2 F-1New, original EOS-1 (film), EOS-RT, and current 1D mk3, with over ten Canon glasses. These Canons were the technology leader at their time. Last week, I was tempted get a 60D for $685, but passed, considering that I could get a NEX 5N or NX200 for similar price and easier to carry around.
Canon doesn't offering any "wow" stuff now:-(
It's Nikon and Sony and even Olympus now keep offering great surprises at great prices:-)

On First Impressions: Using the Nikon D4 article (183 comments in total)

Barney, nice work. The sub-selector seems a big problem. I checked my 1D mk3, it's sub-selector is hidden beside the raised screen and viewfinder, so never has such an issue. Maybe adding an eyepiece or hood on the viewfinder will help? Did you talk with Nikon and see if they can modify it?

Red, Nice looking!
Put it on 5D Mk3, and I may buy it...

645D: On Page 10: "In terms of resolution the NX200 is arguably the currently best performing mirrorless camera". If NX200 has higher resolution than NX7, then it is the current Resolution King for any DSLR sans D800 & Medium Format, right?
Check previous reviews: A900 2700/3700; D3X: 2700/3650, 5D2: 2800/3300

But for NX200, "some detail is resolved up to the highest frequencies available on our test chart", which seems surpass the resolution of NEX-7? Can you provide a resolution number for NX200?

645D: High ISO on par with NEX 5N, very impresive:-)

I was looking at page 9. When setting NR off, The noise graph of NX200 and 5N are mostly overlapping. In RAW, NX200 is even lower in Chroma noise.
Of course, this is for shooting RAW. In JPEG, NX200 unusable in high ISO.

In reply to:

marike6: Really compact P&S cameras like the Ricoh GRD IV or the Canon X100 still have a place. And while I commend Nikon for the nice external controls on the P7100, there is less of a reason for a photographer looking for a travel camera or an enthusiast to buy this type of camera, when for just a bit more, you can have a nice Panasonic GX1, the Nikon J1, or if you are a fan of this form factor, a Canon G1X.

Well said. The body is not small compared to mirrorless, price is not low, what's the selling point?
BTW, where is the NX200 review? postponed?
