DaveE1: Deals with Microsoft don't normally go well. Good luck Canon!

Can you name some examples?

Another 1" camera's IQ beats the shxt out of the V3.

Only idiots buy the V3 for 1200 bucks.

I'm guessing he hasn't been to "beavertown" for far too long based on his demeanor.

William Koehler: "Earlier this month the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 joined the RX10 in this newly-minted category boasting almost certainly the same sensor and a 25-400mm equivalent F2.8-4 lens."

I think it is highly doubtful that Panasonic is using a Sony sensor. Same size yes, but not the same sensor.

So far they've always used their own sensors, even with Olympus jumped on the sony train, so I tend to agree.

Only idiots think they can decide what cameras are the best fit for all other photographers.

Is a Toyota a "turkey"?

You are acting like Canon is Yugo.

Ben O Connor: A full frame sensored, Canon EF mouthed Nokia ? Or 5D mark V, that allows phone calls to friends !!!

Both sounds exciting :D

It looks like a 5D but comes with a bluetooth headset.

John McMillin: Sounds like a perfect match. Both C and M are big, coasting on market dominance from past achievements. Both are complacent, slow to respond to new products and developments (mirrorless, tablets, the web). Both make bloated and graceless products, favored by those who look not at the entire market, but over their shoulders to see what their peers are using.

OK, fanboys, is that enough fuel for you? Let the flames begin!

I give you 4/5 on the troll-0-meter.

1 in 5 would use RAW? you make me laugh. I bet barely 1 in 5 SLR users use RAW.

Apple phones consistently win "real world" photo comparisons, so I disagree. Many, many people buy iphones because it's got a good point and shoot camera along with lots of apps for editing and sharing.

1/10000 are actually going to shoot RAW on a phone. Carrying lenses defeats the purpose of a camera phone. The more you try to turn it into a "Real" camera, the less appeal it has as an always in your pocket device.

I wouldn't argue with a microSD slot and some manual controls in menu that you could enable, though. Although, again, prob 99% of apple's customers love that you just mash a circle button and the pictures turn out great most of the time.

Ironic calling the biggest imaging company and the biggest software company "turkeys".

Those supposed "iphone problems" don't mean anything to the average consumer. If you want to argue enthusiast camera phones, well that's a tiny niche. Apple's too busy making money hand over fist providing consumers with mass-appeal products with a touch of status thrown in.

Juandante: In 2 years : Microsoft bought Canon for 0.9 billion $$ !!!

Canon is worth 37 billion today, so they probably aren't going to drop 97% in two years.

Why? Apple is already the #1 camera company.

I was wondering when a camera company was going to partner with a cell phone maker. Seems like a smart move. Maybe the next Lumias will have Canon L lenses (instead of zeiss) and shoot CR2 files.

saralecaire: Still more expensive than the brand new and 4K capable Panasonic FZ1000.

like .005% of the population has a 4K TV and computer. It's a marketing gimmick.

Matches the 100-400L at 400mm and gives you another 50% more zoom range. Well worth the price.

Even for owners of other m4/3 bodies, the kit lenses might be fun to pick up for (presumably) peanuts on ebay.

In reply to:

Menneisyys: The lens is definitely not as good as the 12-32, albeit seems to be better than the 16-50PZ.

24mm equiv at f/6.3 (that is, not even wide open): particularly the upper left corner is pretty bad: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2952027/101_0062?inalbum=kodak-pixpro-s-1-preview-samples

After zooming in to 48mm, the corner / border sharpness gets better but they remain somewhat bad; see for example the entire left border of http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2952025/101_0050?inalbum=kodak-pixpro-s-1-preview-samples . This is a F5.6 shot; that is, not even full wide open.

All in all, I don't see much point in preferring it to the GM1 with the kit lens at the current, for the kit IQ, IMHO high price ($599 at amazon), unless you do need the tiltable (but, unlike with the GM1, non-touch) screen / hotshoe / additional reach.

Ignoring the fact that the 400/5.6L is expensive and HUGE, sure, why not.
