Shiranai: I don't get why they're releasing their interesting lenses just for uncommon systems like Sony and Fuji X. Makes no sense...
not worldwide...just in asia.
all about the bucksall about the bucksno trouble
stratplaya: Where did they test market these? San Francisco?
Jokica: Hydraulic lens, interesting. Is it servo assisted :-)
i am not paying that tiny man just to be clear.
did i see $78k? is it missing a "DOT" between 7 and 8? LOL!!!
$78k...CEO just got a new/fresh/younger/bigger boob mistress?!?!?!?!
audijam: All i want to say is I cherish every moment I press the shutter and hear the motor advances my film to the next I don't need to be reminded that film is DEAD (well it is not completely dead yet) and digital DSLR is much better blah blah blah. I use 5D3 for work and family and believe me I love it because it's perfect for what I need it to serve. HOWEVER, it doesn't eliminate or replace my love for film SLR.
I took my EOS 3 out last night just to look at it. It's so beautiful. Too bad I let go of my AE1 years ago to a teen who wants to learn photography. I hope he hasn't given up yet.
please do NOT put hunydai or huyndai or whatever dai next to a Ferrari. i don't care how fast it could go and do not give crap if a Ferrari doesn't have AC or radio.
do you think Los Angeles Philharmonic will play for nicki minaj? F no! why? different CLASS!
this is just a toy after all.

misha marinsky4: Ferrania house label films were generally lower quality. They made the Walgreens house brand, IIRC.
I have been reading the comments with amusement. To paraphrase Zone Zero, 'A film camera is like a mortgage, with payments for life.'
With a digital camera, it costs zero to press the shutter release. With a film camera, it costs even if it's a dud. I can't delete the shot for another. I still have to pay for development and a contact sheet. A memory card is quite literally an unlimited supply of 35mm film.
Like the look of film? There's DXO Film Pack, for starters. There's Kentmere, an inexpensive Ilford line. There's Freestyle, which sells inexpensive silver halide products.
With the Pentax MF, bodies have dropped below $10K. It's still not cheap, but Moore's Law applies to them, too. Sometime in the future, MF will compete with 35mm FF. The Mamiya ZD used a Dalsa chip; it was only usable at ISO 100, and they're cheap on eBay.
No one can stop the relentless march of technology.
well said jondh!
chewdoggydog: These dummies with all the negative bs...sdaniella, if you are so damn smart, go work for NASA.
@Sdaniella and you are hot!
this is awesome!
Canon Rumors has better understanding of See Impossible and I love this new idea.
Bananasplit: The announcement was about "Canon" changing name to "Cannot".
I guess year-end is coming they gotta use their budget and try to do something.
vesa1tahti: Joining with Nikon, a new brand: Canikon. Or with Pentax: Pentagon (sorry: Pentacon).
You are right on Pentaprism + Contax. I am not sure about Pentakkusu Kabushiki-gaisha. It's a shame that I didn't get Pentax right since I was a Pentax fan since childhood :(
If you know Pentax = Pentacon + Contax.
a pink T5i?
pookipichu: I'm hoping for mirrorless medium format with 56 x 42mm sensor (or at least 53.9 x 40.4mm). It would revolutionize medium format and it's not technologically unfeasible. Build it and the buyers will come.
errrr....making a medium format camera vs making a BIGGER tablet/phone is a totally different story. everyone needs a phone so all sizes, all colours, all specs there will be buyers because they don't cost you over $1k (don't mention iphone 6). you may need a medium format but not everyone does.
some people lack of imagination? people go on dpreview all have visions/imaginations :)
it's technologically feasible but is it sustainably profitable?
4k is too much but with 4k you could sell more copies :)
