On The new Canon 35L II will be a thing of beauty article (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

TheEmrys: Only one lens and you would choose the Canon 35 L? Deeply disconcerting as there are at least 10 better 35mm options out there.

Name them.

Nikon.

"Really? Without it will make you a bad photographer using an awesome camera?"

Please show me where he said that.

It is false dichotomy, because it is not a final choice. Each camera is a work in progress. Next version may have a touch screen. He is simply delaying his purchasing decision.

"If camera one without a touch screen is superior to camera 2 with a touch screen"

False dichotomy.

"Can't turn the price of a touchscreen off." -- Are you serious?

aerorail: the same people who want a touch screen would complain of the fingerprints

How do you know that? Prove it.

"That said I fail to understand why a touch screen should be a make or break feature in a camera as the OP implied."

One-touch focus point selection (with optional shutter release). That's just one. I am sure the OP can come up with more.

@tbcass -- Well, OF COURSE you can turn it off. Give me an example of a modern Sony or MFT camera where you cannot.

@globethrottle and Roger -- Touch screens can be easily disabled. It simply gives you a choice, it does not force you to use it.

Oh yes, because when I holding a camera in my hand, I also want to play with my smartphone at the same time.

In reply to:

jonny1976: those who says that this full frame full of megapixel rivals medium format really smoked something very very good.
my pentax 645d with good glass is simply unbeatable even if megapixel are the same. noise at base iso, only canon lens can do a bit of justice to the sensor, but still not great clarity, and artifacts.
there is still a big market for medium format producer

> those who says that this full frame full
> of megapixel rivals medium format

"One full frame does not equal two full frames"

In reply to:

Peiasdf: Kinda lame. SONY, Samsung and everybody else is moving ahead like crazy and here I am with my X-E1 and no better body to switch to. X-T1 have the same sensor and SONY & Samsung already have it beat and Nikon D750 was $200 more two week ago.

Hey, Alex, I have an old Canon A610 for sale. I will let you buy that jewel if you promise not to use any other camera for the next five years. I am sure it won't handicap your photography.

@mgoddard -- But we are talking about B&W, aren't we? No need for Bayer, no need for X-Trans.

Now THAT might be interesting... And no anti-aliasing filter in that case.
