In reply to:

Rajeshb: whatever the other brand fanboys tell us about Canon's lack of innovation, the fact remains that if the Kit price goes down a bit, this camera along with two lenses (11-22 and 55-200) will be an excellent value as a hiking and landscape photography kit.

@Rajeshb, don't miss the 22 STM. An excellent lens that you would regret if you miss it.
Also, the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter is a must buy item. You can get excellent quality images from the full frame Canon lenses.

In reply to:

Howard: I think these samples confirm what I thought about the M5: it is a good, capable, if unspectacular camera. As a photographic tool it will be sufficient for most purposes, and its main selling point is that it stays within the EOS ecosystem (you can interchange accessories with EOS DSLRs, and use EF lenses with a simple adapter which does not require communication protocol translation, etc.).

Purely by specs, the Sony A6500 is literally 2 generations ahead, but, for most EOS users with significant sunken cost in the system, this is a good entry into MILC.

As long as people like Canon, they will buy Canon whatever the price is. Performance is not the only reason to buy a product. There are lots of other considerations, like product style, reliability, reputation etc. etc.

As usual, excellent beautiful and natural Canon color.
Others can copy Canon's sharpness, contrast... but never can copy Canon's excellent color rendition.

On article Sigma 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art Lens Review (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nikonandmore: MOST lens reviews are largely inaccurate & a waste. Here is why:

One of the biggest flaws of ALL lenses is NOT its native sharpness, fall-off, CR, etc, BUT INSTEAD the variations between samples! Point:

Earlier this year I went to look for a second hand ultra-wide zoom for my a7RII, the only 2 options being Sigma's own 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 DG HSM II & the much hyped Canon EF 11-24mm F4L (both Canon mount to use with a Metabones adapter). Noting that SURELY this adapter is not originally meant to be used with these lenses & can largely affect its native performance, I tried 2 samples of the Canon that were great, 1 sample of the Canon that was HORRID, 5 samples of the Sigma that were "OK", and 1 sample of the Sigma that was STELLAR! Critically sharp all across the frame & going against just about ALL reviews out there that say the lens is "average".

Never buy a new lens! Never! Find second-hand ones that you can ACTUALLY TEST & you may find the stellar one for a killer price!

Just use human eyes... too much bias

webrunner5: On the real world tests the Sigma is nowhere as good as the Canon at Any focal length!

Really or just dreaming??

In reply to:

naturetech: I seriously don't get why Sigma doesn't just weather seal all of their new lenses.

The launch of their 'Sigma Global Vision' strategy should have included this as a standard.

This lack of WR lenses is the number one reason I refuse to buy the new sd Quattro.

They should specify the IP rating.
The terms "splash and dust proof" and "weatherproof" are just misleading.

halc: Canon can't kill their pro video camera business.
Sony can't kill their pro video camera business.
BMD has no such issues. Red has no such issues. Both have global shutter.

It is easily doable, Canon and Sony are dragging their feet strategically.

As is higher video DR, higher video bit-rate, higher bit-depth, better log curves, etc.

We are living in a world, where lenses cost the most, and lens makers are holding their customers hostage (due to cost of switching) and providing sub-par bodies, because they don't really have to compete against newcomers (who have no lenses).

Canon and Sony are actually good partners! Professionals are keen to use Sony BVP cameras + Canon broadcast TV lenses.
Those are the real big business for Canon and Sony.

Edmond Leung: It makes no sense for such test.
If you really need high end video, use Arri or Panavision.

brendon1000, for sure Sony (Sony F65) is much better than Canon.

photomedium, PhaseOne is definitely better than 5D MK4.

Fujifilm = BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Did you remember the flaw design of your Fujifilm XF1??
You know all the XF1 has the "lens control error" but why didn't you recall all your XF1??

See how bad is your service...

I will buy it if the appearance of this camera is same as Beaulieu 4008ZM4, and with the same 27x magnification optical viewfinder and the Schneider 6-66mm f:1.8 lens.

Buy it? No way!
I would save my money to buy Carl Zeiss.
