how come no one is having a problem with Sony's compressed RAW, all I see is people complaining about other cameras, as a landscape photographer I want un-compressed RAW files so I dont have artifacts, I'm guesiing Sony has a problem with this that they are not letting on about it.

Ross Murphy: I would love to have a fast focusing system camera to go along side my 5D with a couple of fast primes and an adapter so I could use it with the rest of my EOS lenses, as a matter a fact, if it could focus fast it would be excellent to use next to a 5DSR. If Canon was smart thats what they would give us, because a lot of people are doing it with Canon and Fuji, instead of Canon and Canon

no mirrorless camera is as fast as a DSLR, we are waiting on the technology

MatsO: My 2c as a Newbie. (the only digital Camera I got is an OPtio 555).

basically I would like to take a DSLR and remove the mirror and viewfinder assembly and replace it with an EVF, keeping the rest of the camera.

Since all DSLR:s in Liveview or Videomode already works as a mirrorless camera the sensors already can do the job. The 70D sensor for example do prove it.

Cons
A little bigger and heavier than it needs to be
A pure design could take a bigger battery

Pros
It would be the same size as a DSLR. Many small cameras are hard to hold.
It would have the same mount as the DSLR:s. (avoid the EF-M mistake)
The same look and feel
A little cheaper to make. An Evf is cheaper than a mirror and optical viewfinder

The question is if there would be a market for this strange bird?

if it could focus fast and accurate, then yes, but so far they cant

In reply to:

COSTISTOICA: Yesss, canon wins. canon has need 40 years to beat Nikon 13mm f/5,6 wide angle lens :
" The 13mm is Nikon's greatest lens. It is Nikon's greatest lens because not only is it big and supremely expensive, it is Nikon's, and perhaps photography's, greatest lens because it lets us make photographs we can make no other way.

The Nikon 13mm is the world's widest non-distorting professional SLR lens ever made, by anyone, in any format. It allows us to get closer to our subjects, stretch distances and create images from perspectives otherwise unimaginable. "

so?

Frank C.: the mighty Sony a9 /w 50M+ sensor will smack the Canon down and all the time and effort would have been for naught, shame really.

smack it in DR only, Canon overall is much better than Sony, just because you have more DR, doesn't mean you have better images, its still the photographer, many on here forget that

nice to see Pentax finally go full frame, more competition, better products all around. Im sure this will be a good one. The pressure will be on Fuji and Olympus now.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1471 comments in total)

People shouldn't worry about what other people use, I shoot FF because I like it, I also shoot APS-C because its weighs less for some work. People that want the best will get FF or bigger, it is true that the more you spend the better IQ can be achieved. Not every one requires that though, however a lot of people want to say its so little difference it doesn't mater, if thats the case, why even bring it up.
Given an important shoot I will always bring my FF camera, I can always get better image quality from it.

In reply to:

Reinhard136: is it just my imagination or do canons always seem to do faces well ? even a photo of a photo of a face ........ do they have some face recognition software in there that tweeks anything it thinks is a face ...... maybe just dreaming ....... rest of images always seem a bit ordinary .

most devices today that have face detection actually expose for face detection based on skin tones, I dont know about the 7D2 but that means the RAW files are adjusted for facial recognition on most devices. We spend a lot of time writing algorithms that expose for different skin tones. Its just like any other metering method.

Keith Colgan: I have a request into Canon for the answer, but until I hear from them, does anyone know if the 7DM2 will have a new RAW file type that will require the software people to accommodate?

Keith

all new cameras require an update

tbcass: There is a lot of emphasis on DOF control. Is there something wrong with me that I don't consider that of utmost importance? Overall the camera is very cleverly designed and looks quite impressive.

DOF control is great for subject isolation, large aperture is great for low light, I consider it very important and my main interest is landscape which is at the other end of the spectrum

aris14: 12 to 16 Mp would be fine.
No reason for 20 Mp...
That stands for all 1" sensors...

remember this is a Sony sensor not Canon

very well thought out camera, I would definitely like to try this one, rx100 wasn't built well enough for my liking and got damaged once when a camera of that price should have held up better, this one looks better built and Panasonic's menus are better than Sony's, ND would have been nice. Looks like Panasonic has a real winner here.

Looks like the cell phone has created this camera, now that we don't need the small cheap cameras (replaced by phone), they are building higher quality cameras to lure our wallets and I like it, I use my iPhone for the quick daily images and a camera like this for casual shooting, DSLR for the serious stuff, think Ill sell my x100s and replace it with this.

In reply to:

JackM: I wonder if this will force 5D3 prices down. Besides people with a lot of Canon lenses (like me), only a fool would buy a 5D3 now.

this will push Canon to raise the bar, why would you switch brands for this, my 5D3 takes top notch images and so will this, its not about the gear, its about getting out and taking the image, the more quality gear the better for all of us.

I am confused as to why the 1/4000 shutter speed, that seems a little strange for a camera of this level.

jutified, thats just Wikimedia taking advantage of a loop hole and shows how a company can take advantage of an individuals rights, shame on them, this is just bad press for them.

I am frequently hitting ISO 6400 and still wish for higher IQ at those and higher levels, I would prefer higher IQ at ISO 100 though, thats more important to me, but hand holding at higher ISO's is nice to have.

"Meanwhile, DPReview's Andy Westlake expressed his disappointment that there's no option to directly select AF points, as is possible with cameras like the Nikon D7100 and Olympus OM-D E-M1."

would be a huge let down if that is true, surely a HUGE oversight ?????

looks like a great little camera and some people just need to get over the OVF and xtrans sensor thing, I love my 5D3 and my x100s and want Canon to produce this with a 16mp CMOS sensor and fast AF.

so while I just upgraded to CS6 and LR5, now you want me to pay monthly and every one else gets the same thing for the same $10/month, except they dont have to pay the hundreds of dollars I've paid over the years for upgrades, how is that fair Adobe. No I will not get hijacked by your crap marketing department, we should be able to have the option to use the cloud, we dont all want to use it you know, hello ? any one home ?
