4sofnature: I just want the old stuff back:
24-70 f1.8-2.8
Internal ND
Internal timelapse
And some long overdue features:
4K60
Mic input
Real time touch AF in video
Ultra wide angle lens
But when Sony starts getting Canon-savvy, it's just a matter of time before smartphone takes over compact 1".

I want the old price back.

matthew saville: Why no love for Canon EF-M or Fuji's APS-C mount?

I honestly suspect that Sigma is playing favorites with the brands that cause them the least trouble. Canon and Nikon have always been downright combative against Sigma, with lawsuits from Nikon, and weird AF woes and wild vignetting issues on Canon. (Whether intentional or not on Canon's part, I don't know, but still...)

With Sigma doing a whole slew of FE mount lenses right at the same time as Nikon's Z and Canon's RF mounts are debuted, I'm left to wonder if Sigma will take their time in offering native mount options using their existing DSLR optics, let alone design dedicated MILC lenses for all mounts, let alone specifically for Canon or Nikon...

Has any 3rd party reverse engineered the EF-M mount to make a lense?

mosc: QUESTION! Absolutely nothing about EOS-M?? Like, EOS-M is totally incompatible? EF and EF-S were an unusually annoying pair to begin with (say compared to Nikon FX and DX or Sony E and EF) but the R and M mount are like, straight up nothing to do with each other?

I mean they bring out a new M lens, just seems weird they aren't trying to have the "upgrade path" from APS-C thing anymore.

Seems like there's less than 3mm difference between EOSM & R's flange distance. Can they physically make an adapter that thin?

IsaacG1975: You guys mentioned the Coolpix 1, but i think you meant Nikon 1 right?
Also, i think for the better weather sealing, ergonomics and better (and more "native") optics many people would consider the Canon or Nikon over the Sony. Looking at the design of the Sony against either the Canon or the Nikon makes it look very plasticky and who would want to live without a top LCD panel?
Lots to like in all systems to be sure

If the Z has Coolpix AF I'm going to laugh so hard.

Its a trap!

gameshoes3003: While the camera body is a bit lacking compared to the competition, Canon's move with these lenses is super-smart. For the past few years, the digital photography "war" has been fought with camera bodies. Canon is bringing lenses back into the fray.

The 50 F1.2, and the 28-70 F2 are certainly expensive but, people will buy them. These are mainstay lenses that will make photographers money. These aren't like the predicted $6000 USD 58mm 0.95 Noct from Nikon which is likely to be super niche, and rarely used. Heck, Nikon's 24-70 F2.8 VR is at $2400, and Sony's option is at $2200. $600-800 more for an extra stop isn't so bad.

Will hobbyists, like me, buy them? No. But professionals will buy them, and they will recoup the costs quickly.

Yeah Canon isn't messing around with these lenses. Wonder if the body can do the lenses justice. Might need to wait for round 2 or 3 of the body iteration.

Now give us a f/2.5 telephoto zoom.

On article Sony announces Cyber-shot RX100 VI with 24-200mm zoom (741 comments in total)
In reply to:

99tollap: Can we have an RX100 V.5, which is simply the RX100 V with a touchscreen, bluetooth and better battery? And same release price as the original RX100V (or perhaps slightly less)

That's all they really needed to do to.

I'm not sure I'd be willing to sacrifice low light performance and depth of field of my RX100 IV for the extra reach.

I really wish they move to a better battery. They've been using the NPBX1 since the first RX100.

Entropy512: Even with completely random timing choices, the birthday paradox meant this was bound to happen eventually.

In this case - the fact that the visual appearance of a scene is heavily dependent on its timing will bias selection towards "identical time chosen" far more than even the birthday paradox alone can explain.

Social media makes it easier to notice these things.

I thought it was the Apple Bandwagon.

tinternaut: Micro Four Thirds doesn't really need another 25mm lens.

This need some distinguishing features, like IS or macro or a cheap price.

(unknown member): I'll return the camera for a full refund.

But you can't because the SN doesn't match! :p

JJ Rodin: Great news for all those who purchase cheap no warranty cams from another country - find a friend with a 'real' cam and use them to send in cam for warranty work - give them a small handling fee - WIN-WIN !!

PS: is the serial # or other id hidden elsewhere ??

Probably in the firmware.

funnelwebmaster: Technically difficulty and noteworthy but without much artistic merit. Reminds me of some of those Guinness Book of World Records feats - who cares?

Please elaborate on those nice touches.

zakoops: Will be interested to find out if BSI-stacked sensor of RX100M4 ($1000) has about twice the image quality of BSI Nikon J5 ($500), both being 1” and 20MB sensors.

Upgraded video is quite nice, but first what about image quality?

Define "twice the image quality".

pacnwhobbyist: The lens on the Mark III and Mark IV is awesome optically, but I sort of wish they could've added back some more reach on the telephoto end on this camera.

Video is not as important to me, so I would want to see if there's any substantial advancements in IQ (not that there was anything wrong with the previous sensor) with the new sensor.

So looks like the plan is to update the lens on the odd number MKs and sensors on the even number MKs. Next year then?

Impulses: $1,000 huh... Looks like the G7x, LX100, et al haven't provided quite enough competition to the RX100 line, Sony keeps bumping the price every year. Way to dash my hopes of picking up a cheaper V when the IV came out Sony... Tho the GM1 had diminished my lust for it to a certain extent already. Maybe they'll launch what I'd really like, a cheaper/slimmer stripped down RX90 (RX1000?) sans flip screen, EVF, hotshoe, etc.

960fps in HD? That's actually way better than I expected.

What's the resolution at 960fps? I notice they avoid mentioning it.

$200 more for 4k or slow mo? I'll stick with the mk 3.

CaPi: Nice name 'Air' goes well with 'Drone' where I can see these devices in the very near future.
Sony's similar model works well I am told. Fly carefully pls.

What are Japan's laws like regarding to drones?
