If the put the built-in LED light on an updated version of the EF-S 60 macro lens for APS-C DSLRs, that would be a very interesting product!

Howard: It's a good idea. Too bad it is for the EOS-M system and the focal length is too short. A 100mm or even 50mm for the DSLR would be nice.

@ RedFox: I know who the M system is for (including, but not limited to casual users), but you missed my point. My point is that the build-in LED ring light is a good idea and should be adopted to more macro lenses (presumably with shorter focal lengths for the weakness of the light), mirrorless and DSLR alike. And I've no doubt it will.

Howard: Now both of these and TIME magazine can happily go into history's dust bin.

@Tungsten: was that really necessary?

This is an innovative, path-breaking, trail-blazing holster style camera bag that looks just like all the other holster style camera bags. :D

Greg VdB: Since it's an RX10 II with a longer lens, not replacing it, surely the logical name would have been RX10 II XL...
(leaving room for a future version with an even longer lens, the RX10 II XXL, and so on)

Sony is not a T-shirt shop.

BarnET: hey Canon why do you settle for this
This is after all your new Eos T6

18 megapixels isn't the best stuff
Why not 24 just to show some love?

Even the video is looking poor
While you guys used to own that floor

Canon please Can't you see?
This looks older then a CRT TV

well i have something to confess
I am off to Sony at least they impress

life is too short to waste time and wait.
So off to E-mount which is looking great.

Excellent! This alone justifies this lame release.

Whip cream on leftover, not a smart move circa 2016.

In reply to:

Howard: Really? Canon? Why?

Please do not lecture me on economics, I actually have a Ph.D. in Econ. But that's not the point. Point is that it's cheaper to just sell the T5(i) without having to changing the manufacturing process. At this point releasing a 18MP cam is like putting whip cream on leftover ; it's hurting Canon's reputation more than it generates revenue.

@veritalens: I re-read your two-sentence post, and it is still ridiculous.

I applaud Sigma's constantly pushing the boundary, although I don't currently own any Sigma equipment, it's good to know that they are keeping up the competition.

Ridiculous comment. Being largely a third party lens manufacturer, Sigma only would wish it's lenses can be mounted to any system. The opposite is true.

I think this is a good refresh of the xxD line. With the bumped-up resolution and better AF, it should pair really well with lenses like the 100-400 II to offer a capable wildlife/action kit. I personally don't care much for 4K video, but it is a little that it does not offer it in this day and age.

Now the $1199 question is: will the DR hold up to the competition? ;-)

How does a tripod without QR plate even work? Do you twist the camera to mount it? That sounds awkward.
