Thank you - I've just phoned all known PERTH -Australia OLYMPUS fans to let them know of this post !
Airless: Bullet holes image is horribly underexposed. Has the guy never heard of photoshop or at least high ISO?
Like your humor ! - Looks like you have been taken seriously ?
If Nikon has offened you - make a donation to Conservation Education and " Don't shoot to kill leave your RIFLE at home and shoot with a CANON !! "
Fantastic portrait !
NIKON YOU NEED TO OPEN A CONSERVATION FOUNDATION TO PUT LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY BACK INTO NATURE !!
SOONER RATHER THAN LATER--- LIKE NOW !!
Anfy: As an animal rights advocate and Nikon user I feel very bad for this news. I am seriously considering complete switch to another brand, mainly Olympus and Panasonic which, as to my knowledge, do not sell hunting devices. Or am I wrong?
PLEASE Don't change ask Nikon to consider a "LARGE " donation to Elephant, Gorilla, Tiger ,Rhino,Cheeta,Lateral thinkers -----etc. conservation !
rallyfan: This makes me much less interested in μ4/3 bodies. I'd like to see a comparison between this and the OMD, but for a change I'd like to see SPORTS SHOTS rather than a bridge in the samples.
If this is quicker to focus and keeps subjects tracked well, I want one. The lenses aren't an issue, I've got them. I want a small body that can track a moving object. I don't care about scenery shots and buildings etc. Moving objects, focus tracking -- that's it.
Will this beat the μ4/3 bodies at sports shots? If so, I'm in.
Small camera + Huge lens = !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
xxbluejay21: What a horrible camera. Canon really are getting desperate.
Not only desperate ! but stupid marketing .
In another form it was sugested that it would make a good campanion to a 5D so that EF lenses could be shared - perhaps if they had a 35mm but as a 5D owner I wouldn't Buy ! This camera will only be bought as a "ONLY CAMERA "with a packaged zoom and I suspect that most Camera salespersons would offer a FUJI X /Sony NEX or a real camera like a D7100 as an alternative ( even a greater cost )!
Holger Drallmeyer: So how is this one not going to make me buy a X100, X100S, X-e1. Oh yeah, it's way cheaper? It's not about the money if it was I'd use a pinhole camera.
Canon, I love ya but pleeease fire your R&D staff, someone needs to wake up.
Canon needs a new Marketing Director - they are not in tune with the people - ask Nikon users they had the same problem a few years ago - made a change - and are now doing very well most of the time !I would love Canon to make a go of it but they are NOT !
lightandday: Who wants this - not me !
Excuse the replication above !
I doubt not many 5D users would want this camera. Canon should have used their resources in making something like a Nikon D7100 - this camera will be a failure -it's smaller so what ?
I would say not many 5D users would want this camera - the cost of producing this camera would have been more sensibly used in producing something like a Nikon D7100 . This camera will be a failure as it will not satisfy the market demand and very few Canon users will buy it - size - I doubt it !
Who wants this - not me !
lightandday: What credibility has this Company ( DXO ) got ? i.e. Are Nikkors really that better than Canon EF lenses as demonstrated in their "TEST" results ?Should I be selling my digital Canon digital camerasand lenses and buying Nikon/Nikkor equipment ?Are they( DXO ) independent with no financial benefit received for their results and are there any other non commercial "TESTING "organisations that perform and publish their results ?
I thank you for you thoughts - I was really shattered to see how good Nikon is and using Canon for digital and previously using Nikon film equipment (and still do ! ) I wondered about the crediabilty of DXO and was rather hoping that they didn't have any !
copajaus: DXO does lab tests. Reality shooting is a different story. Canon and Nikon both are they strength in some area and they weakness in others. I own both a 5D Mk3 and a D800; I can tell you they both are professional tools which in the right hands can produce brilliant results. I don't think photography is based only on the quality of your lens so really those results are just indicative.I think it's pointless to argue which system is best, lenses produced these days have extraordinary resolving power and really it's all about getting the best lens camera combination for the job.
A true word said !

AlanG: Next I'd like to see a screen that touches you back.
That thought grabs me ! Still thinking about it !
zinedi: Again and again - no built-in viewfinder - no camera. Be happy Fuji - competition is still blind.
I agree with you - it needs to be built in not a add on that gets in the way all the time !
Thanks for your efforts ! Good work !
I see a price drop on the horizon - or perhaps they will come out with spots on their sensors - Canon will move the Game very soon I feel !
P.S I own four "L" series lens and a 5D Mk11 - and love them !
