I think what he is trying to say is: you have to wait almost one more year.

Bershatsky: I don't get it. Look, an old camera. Honestly, I wouldn't have paid $50 for it at a garage sale.

I once paid €100 for a Zeiss Biotar 75/1.5 at a garage sale and sold it to a guy in Asia for €1400.

lukecookphoto: Very cool. Is it still possible to use it today?

Yes, but each time you use it costs you €50.000. Collectors only want items that are in pristine condition.

No thanks. I will wait for the Hasselblad edition.
They will call it the Stellar Mk III and the price will be truly astronomical.

GrtFS: Will it handle Motion Correction?

The recently presented Sony global shutter sensor could make that possible, eventually. Multi-shot, with shots so quickly after each other that the motion becomes irrelevant (or at least not worse than with a conventional single shot).

There you go! Who needs pixel-shift when you can also do it like this.
Further possibilities: create a 3D image out of it. Stack them for better noise reduction.

Which one?

G1Houston: For a "basic" model, ie pro-consumers are its targeted buyers, I wish it had a built-in flash.

Well, I would say that Sony is selling the bodies at a relatively low price so they can get further business with the not so cheap lenses and flashes.

tbcass: Let the anti Sony Trolling begin. I predict complaining about the hard to see backlit lines in rare instances will be mentioned while they ignore the much more common noise in shadow areas with Canon cameras.

It is a good sign.

AbrasiveReducer: Isn't this obvious? A sale is a sale. They sell more cameras than anyone else. They'd like that to continue. If they can't get you to buy both an SLR and a mirrorless camera, they'll settle for one or the other but they would prefer it was one of theirs. A sale is a sale.

Max Iso - you did not answer my question. It doesn't help to put words in my mouth that I didn't say and then refute them.

dynaxx: C'nons issue is not the fear of cannibalising their own sales but the consequences of acknowledging that the DSLR design limitations can't compete with Mirrorless technology for very much longer. Once they do acknowledge that this is so, every DSLR camera owner will think more anxiously about investing in a system that will be dropping down the R&D pecking order.

Give them their dues when it comes to marketing though ; from the posts at DPR you can see how their efforts to publicise sports/action cameras has delayed the dawning of the inevitable. If Hasselblad/Fujifilm have decided that medium format Mirrorless cameras are the future for studio photography ( where IQ matters more than speed and matches much more closely to the needs of enthusiast non-sports/action photographers ) then the writing is on the wall.

They should do it like Sony is doing with the A-mount. Phase it out gradually without acknowledging anything.

Marty4650: Canon has one huge card up their sleeve.

They have the largest installed base of users. At least twice as many as anyone else has. This means more brand recognition, more legacy lenses, more of everything.

They don't need to follow the market, they could lead it if they wanted to. But obviously they would rather let others lead, then wait to see what happens, then jump in when they feel the time is right for them to do so.

If the user base wants to use legacy Canon glass on an adapter, they don't need a Canon body to do that. So it doesn't support your initial statement.

What user needs 500 different lenses? What's the number if you eliminate all redundancy?

Are you sure that the line-up of legacy lenses is an advantage? They either support them, which limits their technical options. Or they drop support, which p*sses off their user base.

PPierre: I fear Canon is misled... The A7III is not a threat because it's a mirrorless camera, it is a threat because it potentially rivals the 5DmIV at a much lower price, with some great features Canon users can currently only dream of.

If Canon releases FF mirrorless cameras that have the same drawbacks as their current DSLRs (vs. the market), I fear they will just lose precious time and money that could be much better used on their DSLRs.

Canon could just make a 5DmkIV with top-notch 4K, top-notch DR and low-light performance, and well, maybe a hybrid EVF/OVF, and price it correctly (around $2500), and they wouldn't have to fear anyone. Whereas if they release a half-baked overpriced mirrorless FF, which I fear, they'll just end up losing their DSLR customers to Sony/Fuji.

Sony already has a foot in the door. It's now about pushing it wide open.

No worries, Canon is safe. Someone will shortly find out that the bottom plate of the A7iii is not weather sealed and that the second card slot is not UHS-II ready, so who could possibly want an A7iii?

mariuss: Canon is not willing to make "high-ends" mirrorless cameras for now ... give me a break. They are simply not able to delivere those cameras now or in the near future! Thats the truth.

In other news, Cessna has stated that they are currently not willing to make jumbo-jets.

Glossy built-in adapter on an otherwise matte lens? Jesus.
Are they serious?
