Why the lack of specs for the 24-70?

Kwick1: Pretty sure that "Up to 1.1M panorama" is a myth, considering what this proper reviewer just printed: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/printer/epson-sc_p800_review.html

Yes, and your release said it was "up to 1.1M" limit.

mgrum: "Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"

That's pretty much all Canon have done for the past 6 years ;)

Canon's not the only one. How many Olympus micro four thirds bodies have the same sensor? All of the current ones.

I'm loving the innovation, but the one thing that keeps me from going back to the Olympus (and M43 system) is the high ISO performance. As long as I have a usable ISO 12,800, I'm good.

I agree with the majority of other posters: Without an EVF, even as an accessory, this is a non-starter.

Kwick1: Canon needs to realize that the money is in the lenses, not the bodies. Doesn't matter if it's a DSLR or this lame attempt at a MILC. If you sell the blades, it doesn't matter whose razor it is.

As the article mentions, they fear cannibalization of the sales of new DSLR bodies. It shouldn't matter to them.

Kwick1: Lousy dynamic range, lousy high ISO, but hey, you get 50MP of crappy images. This looks like a real loser to me.

Chuck Westfall from Canon said that it was. He isn't exactly known for "clever marketing games".

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)

Brand new sensor? According to Robin Wong of Olympus, it's exactly the same as the E-M1 and all of that similar generation. Face it, micro-four thirds is stuck in a rut until that sensor is improved.

On Real-world samples: Sony Alpha 7 II in Kauai article (227 comments in total)

People criticize Fuji for having ugly greens, but these are the worst I've seen. Hard to make Kauai look that bad, but you did. Waxy, dull, lifeless. Thanks for posting these - I was temped before, but not any more.

ZoranHR: Big lenses on a small body and mechanicaly poorly made mount. Glue? ;-)

Someone needs to tell Leica to stop making small, fast lenses then. Or their less expensive Voigtlander and Zeiss equivalents.

Typo: " the NX1 could usurp the DH4 as our recommendation in this product class" Pretty sure you meant GH4.

Absolutely hate this "comparative review" format. If you want to have a set of common pages for video in each in-depth review, then fine, but the rest of the camera feature sets are apples and oranges.

Could you please break them apart?

Kwick1: Hate the comparative review format. Would rather have two separate reviews, with maybe a comparison page or two within.

For me as a stills shooter who's interested in the A7S due to its low light capabilities, the majority of this review, as well as its primary perspective, is worthless. You've pre-decided who will be reading this review and who would be interested in those cameras and have alienated the rest of us.

I'm being serious, not disingenuous. I completely disagree that's the primary purpose over their predecessors.

For me, I'd like to see if there is ay improvement in the AF over the other A7 models, for example. If you compare that to the GH4, it means nothing. It's not just the low light aspect. If you're forced to do a comparison review with the A7S, I'd do it against the other A7 models.

Shamael: Who needs 36 mpix 1080 video and 3200$ to pay, while the trend is 12 mpix, 4k and 2500$. Now, I ask myself some days that good ol' question, "should I laugh or should I cry."

One camera does not make a "trend"

Corkcampbell: Wireless flash capabilities? Didn't see it in the specs here or elsewhere. Hopefully, I just missed it.

You just missed it. Look at page 4 of the review, in the flash section.
