The issue being discussed is post processing. Some have mentioned that only perfect models will be employable. If this logic holds true then it will lead to more 'pre-processing' and by that I mean plastic surgery, botox etc. Will the law extend to disclosure of body alterations that are physical as well as electronic? Where should this line be drawn? Too many variables as far as I'm concerned. Where will basic processing of raw fit in? Since a jpeg edits the raw data would that not also count as editing as well. Too many variables do draw a hard line.

Thoughts R Us: This is chasing a fantasy world where everyone knows how to tinker and fix/upgrade their products. How many fix or upgrade their refrigerators/washer/dryers/TVs/air conditioners, etc?

Even with cars, a relatively small percent fix their cars and that's getting smaller as cars get more complex and become more computers on wheels. How many service their own Tesla's, for instance? Wait until we all go EV's with semi-autonomous driving features and see how few are able to work on their vehicle.

The price to pay for smaller/lighter/better integration/increasing sophistication of product is that they become harder to make repairable/upgradable. Just like the price we pay for rapid advancement in tech is that older products are seen to become more obsolete or dated more quickly.

Let's not live in a fantasy world based on the past.

I feel there are levels to the comparisons being made. I do not tinke or upgrade my computers. On the other hand I have replace parts myself. To me changing out a hard drive is about the equivalent to changing a tire on a car. I'm not a car tinkerer but that doesn't mean I can't or shouldn't be able to change a flat. Real service I go to the dealer but lets be fair, some basic things should be serviceable.

All you need to know as to why you should not waste your money on junk like this.

zakk9: Very interesting lens, and so wide that, if it can be fitted with a speed booster, it will be a 21mm eqv. even on MFT.

My bad. I didn't look all that closely, I just read the text. Speed booster will definitely work

If it is mirrorless as native you can forget about the speed booster. The only way a speed booster works is on a dslr design that is adapted to mirrorless. It is about one the here... flange distance

Sactojim: Canon, with your dwindling revenues, how the heck did you ever think this would be popular? This is a solution looking for a problem.

Perfect for when my gf comes birding

makofoto: Molded optics aren't that expensive I believe. Why doesn't this have proper modern telephoto optics and quality? My Nikon P900 and Sony RX10 mk4 are exceptional! I tested the new Canon Compact 800mm last week. Also very good!

$299 vs $1000+ is also known as you get what you pay for.

a little too niche I suspect

TonyNC: I'm anxious to see Tamron begin to bring some of the optical designs in these E-Mount lineup to their Canon/Nikon lineup.
Really want the 20 and 24 in F-mount. Love to see the 85 and 90 in E-Mount.
And really waiting with $$ for a 135 f2...

It will never happen. The physics won't allow for it on F or EF mounts. The lenses are designed specifically for mirrorless which have a short flange distance. If they do any of these lenses for Nikon or Canon it will be for the Z an RF mounts respectively

Dr_Love: I love the concept. Sony tried with the QX10 but it never took off. The fact that this is more of a 'camera looking' body that has a smartphone mount rather than just a lens mount with smartphone mount like the Sony. It makes sense as one of the biggest issues many of us have is connectivity limitations. I suspect this will solve many of those problems. Hey Sony, make a FF with a reasonable number of hard buttons/dials and you can take my money tomorrow.

Yes I should have referenced the Qx1 that was basically an 'E' lens mount with a phone mount on the other side. I loved the concept but the execution left a bit to be desired. On the other hand if I came across one on the cheap I wouldn't mind having one just for $hits & giggles

Lees Channel: The 980 Pro is a significant downgrade from the previous model, the 970 Pro. I assume most people who would be in the market for this would be savvy enough to already know this, but I just want to put it out there for those who may not know and are considering this drive.

any chance you could give details of why this is a downgrade rather than just saying so?

Kjeld Olesen: I suppose that it is rather unlikely that any of us actually has experience with all those cameras, so the poll is more likely to become a measure of how many of us has used each camera - I refrained from voting, as I have only ever tried one of those cameras, and I have absolutely no idea whether that is the best or not.

My first job at 16 was in a camera store. I played with everything we had. Every major brand and a few smaller ones

Mortal Lion: Buy extremely expensive large 1.0 lenses the overcome crop sensor size when yo can just switch to FF of MF.

@Ingo70. Very well said. Just like a condom or a gun. Better to have one and not need it than need one and not have it. ;)

davev8: i predict it will be cheaper to have a FF camera than F1 lenses on a APS-c

metabones speedbooster will turn any FF f1.4 into Apsc f1.0. So it is no surprise they are having size issues when going that extra stop after f1.4. FF performance on apsc = FF size on apsc.

paulfulper: I want very very large pixels , not tiny pixels like in 61mp
Please Sony give us the long awaited Sony A7 SIII , at 8mp would be perfect to shoot at nightime

8mp will NEVER happen on A7S models. You need 12mp minimum for native 4k which is why they are what they are. The A7Sii will shoot in almost complete darkness. What do you what do you want to shoot that you can't with the current model?

Piotr W: Recording 4K/30fps is a joke. Looks like they do not want people to stop buying camcorders. What other reason can be ?

@JakeJY I noticed the same image processor as well. It also got me thinking. When they did the firmware updates Sony gave the excuse that the Riii processor couldn't handle an A9 style firmware update for the real time tracking AF.

Chris_2017: $3500. Seems a bit stingy with 1.44 mil dot LCD, no?

You have a killer view finder res. If you need higher res on the lcd then go larger and get a shoe mount external of whatever res you want.

nitroman: Is it possible to use Canon EF lenses on this with adapter?

yup with full function in most cases now

Reilly Diefenbach: Medium format just got even more irrelevant.

@Kaonashi Real MF is at least 4.5cm by 6cm and preferably larger like 6x7 so you better not be talking about the downsized MF mirrorless from Fuji and Hasselblad. Great cameras but not true MF. Don't even get me started on 4x5 or the holy grail 8x10 view cameras.
