vladimir vanek: Kind of steep pricing, I'd say...

Photomonkey, thank you for your post - that may justify the reason for the higher price tag.
Graybalance - I didn't mean an exact product, just a thought that a few LEDs can cost so much. But as Photomonkey pointed out, the price may be justified by the fact that they're some special kind of LEDs designed for consistency...

Peace.

why not just make an efficient solar power bank that could be fastened anywhere (backpack, garments, helmet, etc) and hooked up to a gopro or other cams? this makes me think of it as a refinery attached to a car.

I think Canon should be happy to sell ANY ILC. :)

vladimir vanek: Absolutely fantastic (except for the price in my case)! 35mm is all you need 90% of the time. And combined with 42mpix, you can extract some nice crops if need be. But a 35mm lens will teach you a lot about photography, people and a lot about yourself. Currently, I carry around an OM-D E-M10 with a fixed 17mm/1.8 lens and I simply don't need any other lens. Just try it! It's fun, it's art, it's a challenge, it's really worth it.

I understand your point. And I can agree with it. However, I can live with a bit narrower FOV and find a view, that would fit within the frame. That's what I mean with "learning". There is always something interesting in the 35mm FOV (as well).
(And you can always stitch a pano if it's the only only way to go.)

Wow that looks BIG. I mean B-I-G. No, I mean BBB-III-GGG! More like a compact medium format than portable FF.

Try it all with a 35 and you'll learn a lot. ;) (I admit, that is not the way for every situation and shooting style, but I think that for the majority of people it's viable to stick to 35mm.)

Reading news about EOS M, I always feel like swimming in a pool of honey.

noflashplease: The industry needs more competition among sensor suppliers, especially in the full frame segment. If full frame format sensors could become "commoditized," digital photography would be transformed, and all for the better.

But do not forget about FF disadvantages as well, such as: 1) shallow depth of field (which causes some serious limitations for macro, for example), 2) large and heavy lenses, 3) more expensive to produce (applies to sensors and lenses alike). Bigger isn't always "better".

"Sony has said that the degree of autonomy that the new company will enjoy will allow it to react more quickly to changing market forces and will encourage the business to grow more quickly." - yet more quickly? ;)

isinadinos: It would be a dream if 60p was also added in the FW.
How is possible the lower model of OMD EM10 m2 has 60p and not the top one?

afaik, it's a matter of sensor and its circuitry, not just software and camera's CPU power.

RedDog Steve: I understand that AF and stabilization are advanced concepts, but they couldn't even offer auto aperture control like so many lenses from the '70s that this is patterned after ?
Rumours were that this was to be a "pancake" ... not.

Not worth it for several steps backward in technology.

no stabi is not of an issue with Olympus' ibis and lack of AF is not a problem after you hit the FN2. ;) this is really a cool lens for the money spec-wise. if the images are close to those pre-production samples, this is going to be a hot seller.

Roland Karlsson: Does not look like granite too me. If it really had been granite, then a hit by the lens hood would not damage it, maybe a direct hit by the cast metal body.

chinese granite...

oh, I just noticed the same reply one line below me. sorry. O:)

ttran88: Sony article again??? Canon recently published their earnings and they made some money too.

yeah, they made some 16% LESS money... :D http://www.canonrumors.com/2015/07/canon-profits-drop-16-in-second-quarter/ It's more obvious now who's in the game and who really listens to the market... Canon fell asleep in the last century.

PS: I am a former Canon fan, now moved to Olympus OM-D system. No SONY fanboy... ;)

Olympus has been going some different ways the other years. Thumbs up from me!
