Donnie G: No surprises here. Canon is wisely selling the camera in Japan and Asia only, since those are the only places where mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras have had any kind of sales success. Unlike the competition, Canon doesn't have to bet the company's future on a camera form factor that has only proven to be commercially successful when they were sold by the millions as small, pocketable and cheap fixed lens P&S. Smartphones own that ground now, and so far, the idea of adding a larger sensor and interchangeable lenses to that point and shoot form factor hasn't paid off for any camera company. If the EOS M cameras ever turn a significant profit for the company, then there will be incentive for further development of that system. Until then, it just makes sense to stick with what works for the overwhelming majority of camera buyers on the planet, and that's Canon's highly profitable line of DSLRs. Business 101. :)
thsoe girls pursue IQ over beauty touch up and easy operations so don't count them in. the majority of asian girls just want simple operation, slim design and app that touches up their skin.
look at the success of casio tryx....
peevee1: The existence of such prices for useless stuff is a indication that some people have TOO much money, and taxes can be safely raised.
be careful for what you are wishing for....riches never pay taxes doesn't matter how much you raise. it is just gonna hurt the middle class.
offtheback: Now I'm waiting for a newspaper issue with no text and no photos.Wait wait....I have one already.
what is that?
audijam: how come DPR doesn't introduce Ricoh Theta? it looks very interesting to me!
oh it's in the connection section~~~
marike6: Try these K-3 Samples:
The two portraits done with the DA 70 f/2.4. Yowza. That's what I'm talking about...
exactly! they can make profit out of me but i can also make profit out of my clients!
how come DPR doesn't introduce Ricoh Theta? it looks very interesting to me!
now i have doubt in DPR's lens selection and photography skills....
awesome! my god....these guys are truly amazing!
babalu: ..by the way... all other things left aside, this photograph DOES look appealing, and soothing to the eye . This must be said !
you need to get your eyes checked...
michelowski: Hey, tactile controls, and still less embarassing than a Nikon Duff.
i like a blue one....you can keep pink nikon to yourself...LOL!!!
105mm at 1/15 sec....WHAT?!
kalibwem: Would have been nice to see more test shots in optimum photographic light such as early morning or late afternoon + more people and object shots, such as food. Can I test for DPConnect?
are you asking for a free phone? count me in!
SungiBr: I would like a bit more reach on wide end, say 18-40, and it would be a much better range.But looking at all weird focal lenghts of the Limited line, 20-40 make some sense though... :P
But, despite that, the price, IMHO, is quite low for a Limited lens. I bought the FA 31mm for about the same price.
Really glad Ricoh is putting Pentax brand up in evidence, and keep investing on it.
i like 18-40 idea...
if pentax can come out with FF with reliable AF then i will abandon Canon..
wow....that's very expensive for a toy lens
D1N0: Can't Sony just awaken the Minolta Brand for regular dslrs with ovf and fllippin' mirrors in them?
i have the same thought too...apparently sony doesn't know how to make a camera look like a camera....pst
man....this could have been a new flasgship but you guys made it like a toy?! why? it has such a beautiful body and inside is semi-pro stuff....WHY?!?!?!
this is disappointing!
hahaha...this is cute! i like it! good job!
oh i like this one!
1. Sony owns the world and it kicks ass.2. Although people makes $ out of photography shoot RAW, however there are people don't shoot RAW and JPEG IQ is an index for them. don't judget people don't use RAW.
since when you see i said "ONLY" people that are making $ shoot RAW? lol
and i am not even defending Sony...You were....
