sportyaccordy: When are you guys gonna finish this review? It was started in 2014 despite the "February 2015" dateline
Thanks for the update and feedback! A "late" review capturing important firmware updates is more valuable than a rushed review without it. Opacity breeds (unwarranted) conspiracy theories...
@brownie314 judging by the # of comments this has a decent amount of interest. It has about half those of the 5DS 1st impressions over the same period.
@alfredo_tomato if financial support is a requirement for questioning content how much are you paying this site, or more importantly me?
sportyaccordy: I think the EOS M4 will be very strong if they put a viewfinder on it. Strange thing is though I don't know if Canon MAKES an EVF.
@rrccad in my opinion, yes there is something wrong with the M3 not having an EVF at this point, if it doesn't have an LCD that is viewable in direct sunlight. Hard to compose/confirm AF when you can't see what the camera sees.
The A3000's viewfinder takes away from its value. Looks like the viewfinder from a camcorder from the early 90s.

nekrosoft13: interesting interview, but pathetic Canon point of view. they act like their the best in everything, nothing scares them, yet every company out there is making better gear then them.
If Canon doesn't believe in itself why should anyone else?
Plus keep in mind they are still a if not the top selling ILC company, and are still highly regarded by pros. So there's merit to what he's saying.
sportyaccordy: No love for E mount or MFT anymore? That's disheartening :(
All I want are some F1.8 speed 24 & 35mm E mount primes for ~$500 a pop. I think that is possible, no?
I think there are a lot of APS-C shooters who want more, but don't want to change systems to get better lenses. Plus the smaller the FL the bigger the differences in lens design for APS-C vs FF. People buy their 19 and 30mm 2.8s despite them being pretty slow... I think more standard equivalent FLs and F/2 speed would move.

If Sony would make a wide angle for the 24 1.8Z I think I would have to buy one.
sportyaccordy: Gold award? For what?
The A7 also ranks (a LOT) lower than this, despite being a revolutionary camera, having the same ergonomics, better (non-low light) IQ, etc.
For all folks griping about DxO's methodologies, they are at least more objective and somewhat consistent compared to what goes on here, based on this review.
I'm definitely curious to see how this will compare to the 5DS/R...
I get that video is a big part of photography now, especially at 4K resolution. But this is still Digital PHOTOGRAPHY Review, and in that regard the A7S clearly falls short, even at the thing it's supposed to specialize in. I suppose if the GH4 got a gold award, despite having a similar imbalance, it's consistent.... but the A7R is ranked lower despite having better overall IQ and the same ergonomics. I just don't get it

ragmanjin: I'd be curious to see how it compares to the equivalent Samyang, they've been getting some good reviews as well.
That's too bad, though I understand. I have MF lenses now but no viewfinder. I'm hoping a viewfinder will make MF easier otherwise I'm done with it as well
Yes, Samyang has a 24 1.4 that covers the full frame image circle.
sportyaccordy: Sony should answer with a phone version of the RX1
I meant RX100.

Looks like an MF body. Beefy
babart: Why did they not make an adapter to use all their other lenses with?
Not sure what the author meant when he said it was hard to find, it's in stock and available everywhere. Admittedly it doesn't work very well.
Hopefully the M4 will have a humped EVF and come to the states. Based on what the M3 costs I will probably still take my chances with a used A7
