abi170845: Look at that pathetic slow lens attached to the 7Dmk2. Where are the pro efs lenses?
As much I love this camera when I tested it out yesterday at my local dealer. Come on Canon, where is the Tough, Weather Sealed non pumping EFS 2.8 zoom like those from Fuji! I would not want to use my EF L lenses on the APSC camera.
Please canon stop producing same old Rebels and double digit APSC and re do all the EFS lenses. 60mm Macro? ancieeent!
So Canon forces its APS-C costumers to buy FF lenses. Lenses not designed for APS-C and therefor to big, heavy and expensive with odd focal lengths....
Canon sees APS-C as an inferior sensor size. They produce it so that people can upgrade to FF at some time. That's why the Canon APS-C lens line is crippled.
Photoman: Cheaper to buy a new or second hand Sony A7 camera to use your Leica lenses, as the M9's are going to lose value in the second hand market now.
How does the rangefinder work in the A7?
RichRMA: Should have included the Leica S. It's the same size as a pro Nikon or Canon, has a much larger sensor and the form-factor of a "regular" DSLR. Sure, it costs $30k, plus lenses, but it could be used in much the same way as the other DSLRs.
Leica S sensor is to big for this list. But Leica M should be listed.
I see a mystery D4X.
Right, DPR avoids the probodies.
And the Canon EOS 1D X is also missing.
aandeg: When ya changing the name of the website to 43Rumors?
As soon as people as you stop whining about a few (m4/3) rumors on this site. Never going to happen I guess.
Aroart: Check out Sony a 5100,, it beats all these cameras in cleanet high iso.. See for your self it was even better than the a6000,,, yea yea I know its the same sencer.. A5100 also has a realy nice video newer codec than a6000...
At low ISO even my E-P3 is just fine. So if I upgrade to the 16mp m4/3 sensor it's all I ever need.
Lol. High ISO isn't important for my type of use. Why should I decide my choice in a new camera on that only aspect of a camera?
aeonsim: This is just bizare no Sony cameras when between they effectively dominate mirrorless? The A6000or the A7 should definately been here if your were seperating by price the A7, if by features the A6000.
If your going to claim the A7 is a different category I might understand though as I've mentioned the price is similar to half these cameras but the A6000, sure it's cheaper but feature wise? Claiming that's a different category when your putting the Nikon 1 V3 here is just foolish.
40% according to Sony isn't it. Lol
Nice video. Would love to see more like this (as a part of the reviews)
Great sensors in the A7 family, but a camera is not made by it's sensor alone. Besides the sensor there is nothing special about it, just mediocre.
In what world does Sony dominate mirrorless? Sony does interesting things with camera's (but never finish it) but they don't dominate. The only thing Sony dominates is the 8th generation homeconsole market.
enenzo: This is a Christmas joke! :-) No Sony cameras? Makes absolutely no sense. Neither Samsung or Nikon should be on this list. Where is Sony A6000, A7/R/S, A5100 and where is the Panasonic LX100? I do not get it. You did get one thing right. No Canon camera. Come again DP ;-)
A6000 is a different class comparable to the E-M10: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7802516432/mid-range-mirrorless-camera-roundup
A7 family should be here but DPR sees it as a different class, see comments. A5100 has no EVF so is much lower class. LX100 isn't a MILC.
LionelA: Now this looks like a real camera, not like those fragile mirrorless ones
Yes, just like a 1974 Dodge Dart looks like a real car (ask Al Bundy) and not those fragile Audi A5's.
This probably means no new stabilized lenses from Sony (if also the other E-mount body's get IBIS). Looks like all the current E-mount body owners are screwed.
loafer: The demographic group that purchases this kind of camera has already bought into the fuji x and sony A7 systems.
Why use Canon L lenses on a Nikon body. Nikon has excellent lenses that matches L. It is a way out tot use Canon lenses if you have them but a frustrating one. Read all about it in the forums.
I don't want adept lenses that work slowly. I want lenses designed for the system and that make full use of the system design. Sony has proven with the A-mount APS-C, A-mount FF and E-mount APS-C that they will never offer what the competition offers. There is no commitment in building lens lines from Sony. They make nice body's but that's it. They make also nice sensors but I can get Sony FF sensors in Nikon FF camera if I ever wanted the size and weight of FF.
Why would anybody with photography as a hobby or profession interested in a Sony product? Sony is mostly for gear-heads who don't care about lenses or a system that is developed.
Lawrencew: Any idea of the EU and UK price?No price is given in the EU press release.
2199 euro according to Tweakers.net
kevin_r: How can this be a PRO lens if the largest aperture is only f/2.8?Given the small size of the sensor, from the photos I've seen taken at that f-stop, the DOF is so large it really makes the photos look as if it's been taken with a cheap point and shoot.There's really no distinguishing blur to separate the subject from the distracting background, especially at wider angles of say 50mm or less.
Olympus really should have made these "PRO" lenses start at at least f/2 if not f/1.8. Anything else is just duhhhhh...
A little bit narrow minded?
