Aroart: Its Canons own fault for not giving 4k to cameras less than $3000.. Dave Dugdale from learning video.com summed up Canons demise for videographers with one statement.. He said when he was at NAB this year that he did not see anyone shooting with a Canon when 3-4 yrs ago the 5dm3 was the go to Camera... The camera he saw most people using was the Sony a6300...

Canon essentially invented the CinemaDSLR segment with the 5D2 and then walked away and let mirrorless have it. Even Nikon is ahead in video now.

Timbukto: And in more interesting news, smartphones, the reigning champion of digital picture captures, is also over the hill and has hit market saturation.

No every industry can have infinite growth, just ask Wall Street.

Retro1976: Well good new for Canon. I just sold my Fuji gear. Been round the block Olympus, Sony, Fuji and now I'm returning back to a DSLR. Why you ask ? I miss the nice grip, the intuitive menu system, the fast accurate focusing, the ever growing array of killer third party lenses and the week long battery life. Trust me I love mirrorless and will miss many aspects of the bodies I have used, but no one yet to had figured out how to make small without compromise.

You might not need 4k video, but it allows for some pretty spiffy 8MP stills features.

Canon hasn't been trying very hard lately, so I'm surprised they are still doing this well.

tkbslc: Well I guess a 2 month delay beats releasing them on time and then doing a recall 2 months later.

Mk1 is a dinosaur with a slow lens. Might as well go Canon g9x and get wifi.

$300 price difference helps with my patience. Sony can keep smiling as long as they want. I'm not paying $1000 for an RX100 with 4k.

Can we not view the images in the gallery at full screen view anymore? I can only get it to fill about half my screen now and the rest is a details pane and a thumbnail strip. It's especially painful on my laptop screen where I end up viewing a veritable 3x5" photo.

noflashplease: I really wonder if this is the last gasp for the Coolpix camera line? The point-and-shoot camera is effectively an extinct product in the current market.

Seem like a new start to me. The DL24-85 is the first Nikon compact I've ever wanted to buy.

stevo23: Wow - I was going to get a Loxia 21, now I may hold out for this.

Yeah, a Batis has AF!

tkbslc: We need a Batis 35mm 1.8 now!

@ joe_leads, the native 35mm f2 Loxia is as expensive as a Batis and manual focus only. The 35mm f1.4 is quite large and the 35mm f2.8 is fairly slow.

I think a 35mm f1.8 could be a nice "goldilocks" lens.

Wow the review is published exactly one year - to the day - from their last article touting it as the camera for a new era.

In reply to:

christiankoehler: The original was probably around f/17 (22 times slower than the later f/3.6 Petzval lens according to several sources).
This lens is five stops faster! Even with modern materials etc. I don't think it is possible boost the original design to f/2.9.
Maybe the pictures look similar, but most likely it is a completely new design that has nothing to do with the historic original.

Christian

But the old one was used on huge plates, so equivalent DOF was not slow by any means.

Battersea: It's like a distortion pedal for a camera. Jimi Hendrix would understand.

It's like an old one with a tube in it. Some say it sounds better than modern digital effects.

They keep making more of these retro revival lenses, so they must sell. Not for me, but certainly an interesting option.

In reply to:

Serious Sam: So Leica works together with Huawei to create a fake Leica picture feel. Now that's low......

Interesting phone but Huawei still don't get it . Do what your do best. Anyone spend that much money on a China brand electronic device is crazy.

Guess where all the Apple phones are made?

Thanks for the enlightening correction on my less-than-serious comment.

It's pretty great on the GX7, so I am sure it will be on the GX80

In reply to:

mosc: I'm just of the opinion that there's no market beyond cell phones and fixed lens compacts (with really fast glass) for cameras of this size/price. I thought the GX8 was a more reasonable "enthusiast" product to pair with lenses but this kit-lens-focused GX85 seems doomed. The LX100 is under $600 and has a MUCH faster lens.

My GX7 has an F1.2 lens on it right now. It laughs at the LX100's slow zoom lens.
