Buy a gray market phone from anywhere else in the world.

I frequently take family videos with my iPhone. Not going to replace my A7s3 by far, but a lot of times the phone is readily available and can produce acceptable to great results (lighting permitting). If Apple or Samsung (or any other phone maker) came out with a video-centric pocket device, I would be highly interested.

Let me first preface by saying that I appreciate and respect the hard work put into this production. I did, however, find the footage a little hard to watch in certain portions because the frame rate was too dense and showed progress too slowly. I would have preferred it to be a little faster.

"The only differences are external."

I'm pretty sure it costs significantly less to get the same cosmetic treatment in a custom shop. Just buy a "regular" Leica Q2 at $5,495USD and have it detailed for, say, $100.

I've always maintained that if we could take great pictures with them back then, we could still take great pictures with them today. Slower AF, less DR, etc etc, yes, but their capabilities didn't diminish with time, they just got out-spec'd by newer models. Obviously I won't use an old model camera on purpose, but if need be, I don't see why I can't take great pictures with a 20-year-old camera that produced great images 20 years ago.

Does this mean one day megapixels won’t matter anymore?

I just can't ever do any photo or design work on a 14" screen. The cluttered interface will drive me blind.

I only rent Zeiss' stuff so the higher prices won't affect me very much.

Greg OH: A "halo" lens that's actually useful. For less than half the price of Nikon's manual focus f/0.95.

As you yourself said, you spend more for the speed, so why you acting all surprised that it costs 3x as much? And even if an f4 lens is sharper wide open, its wide open is only f4. And by "sharper," we're talking really small differences. Please get over yourself and stop preaching about a sharp lens being not sharp. Pixel-peeping is so out of fashion.

dash2k8: I have three RF lenses (50, 85, 70-200) and all have been optically excellent. Judging by the samples in this gallery, it looks like Canon can't make a bad lens on the RF mount.

I agree this lens is not top of the line, but awful? And I'm not sure many lenses on any brand's lineup will fare very well on a 100MP sensor.

dash2k8: My problem with moving on from LR is that my catalog system is married to LR. It would be a pain to start a new one (over 200,000 images) from scratch.

Thanks to all the replies. I'll give that a try!

F2 vs F4 will obviously have a huge gap in price difference. Canon's 70-200mm f2.8 lists at $2099 and the f4 is $599. Hello?

TWChua: One lens to replace multiple prime lenses, brilliant!

Judging from the gallery, I'd say this lens takes very sharp images.

Greg Edwards: Am I the only one who is interested in finding out where I can buy these grey market products?

It seems Canon's efforts have had the reverse effect on me.

I don't know if it's allowed to offer recommendations, but B&H actually lists gray items on their site, though not many.

Buying gray is a great way to save money as long as the buyer is willing to risk the king's ransom it costs for repairs. But here in Southeast Asia, there are gray service centers (if you know where to look) so generally there's no real advantage to buying officially licensed stuff unless you want free repairs under the warranty, which has many limits on liability anyway and whose period of coverage is finite.

nonolet: there is no "grey market". there is only unjustified regional "price differentiation" or rather price gouging.

and counterfeit would also be much less of an issue if original canon products - like eg batteries, lens hoods etc. - were 1. always in stock and 2. more sensibly priced.

@nonolet, I couldn't have said it better.

derfotograf: Looks like urine to me because there is no life in the glass. This is definitely NOT the way to photograph beer professionally.

I agree that adding bubbles would have improved the image. Easily done in post. Or spray on some fake condensation on the glass surface. I don't think the OP is wrong.

I remember when I tried my hand at beverage-in-glass photography. Glass is a pain to handle for beginners but once I grasped the correct lighting setup, it becomes hugely satisfying.
