pentaust: Specs, specs and again specs... but why Sony still make their cameras an ergonomic misery? (especially at the price they charge for it...) Is it too expensive to make a proper well shaped hand grip and immediate top dials, instead of having to go through a maze of menus for a basic camera setting?

@pentaust. Not my experience at all. In fact you couldnt be further from the truth. I can only assume you have never picked up a Sony! Set it up how you want it and never use the menu system again.

But of course you know that and are just talking utter b@ll@cks!

Melindra: Nobody noticed that I trolled for the three different brands. I was attacked for being a Sony, Canon and Nikon shill in the same comment thread.

Interesting experiment, thanks guys.

Name calling, yes he may well come to that conclusion. I guess one might say he would be entitled to that opinion, it is like a school playground afterall!?

@kandid. His conclusion could be that the comments section on every announcement is a poisonous cess pit full of undesirables (you know who you are) massively spoiling a excellent free source of information for most.

It would also be easy to say just bypass those that bother but with most of the undesirables (Yes you really know who you are) posting many many times it becomes impossible to have any meaningful exchange.

That is just my interpretation of what his conclusion could be. I may of course be totally wrong, he could just think the comments section is full of w@nkers! You know who you are 👍

Horshack: I recommend ZEISS pre-moistened cleaning wipes. Walmart sells a box of 100 for $5, usually on a display in front of the in-store Vision Center. To prevent streaks I dry mine a bit before using - you can do this by blowing air onto an unfolded wipe with a rocket blower.

Yes agree with the Zeiss wipes. I bought a box of 200 a long tIme ago from Amazon UK. Think they were about £12 box but worth it. Getting to last few now but will purchase again for sure.

Amazon UK if you would like to reward me I have no problem with that 👍😁😉

Vahur Krouverk: Correct use of vodka to clean lens: take sip of it and then breathe on lens and wipe it off!

Very good. I like this concept, however if you have a dozen or so lens to clean make sure you are sitting down!

😁👍😎🙈

entoman: Not worried about Canon's financial statements, they are a huge company and will still be producing cameras for at least another decade or two.

It's the rest I'm more concerned about. Sony are in a strong position, and so are Fujifim and Panasonic.

Pentax sadly haven't got a chance of getting through a major recession.

Olympus will likely pull out of photography and concentrate on their medical division.

Leica will still be here in 50 years time, as there'll always be rich dudes who want class and exclusivity.

The unknown quantity is Nikon. They make some of the very best cameras and lenses, and really deserve more than anyone to thrive, but they just don't seem to be popular anymore. It could go either way.

Your problem not mine! I have no intention of getting into some childish argument you seem to want to perpetuate. Goodbye and stay safe.

Joyous, only in your mind?? Simply stating a fact and a saying that has been around for many many years so maybe you need to sort your own thinking out!?

Applies to all the larger companies so think before you write.

StoneJack: The flicker reduction is a quite basic feature, and it shows that the camera was released half-baked if they have to improve it now. The half backed, rushed release was clearly a panic move, as Nikon, Canon and Panasonic released competitive, full frame mirrorless cameras with far better specs. No wonder the Sony camera flopped and the whole camera division was shut down and put under Playstation honchos, who immediately stripped it of all DRAM for their new toy. Sony camera also seem to lose all their software support, as all Sony programmers moved to Playstation games. So Sony menus will remain as clumsy as ever and the abrupt end of life for Sony camera software is surely a sign of ending support for Sony cameras in foreseeable future.

@stonejack Talking out the wrong hole again!

iShootWideOpen: Wow, a lot of angry Sony owners here. Why the anger guys? Enjoy your cameras and stop being so tribal.

Couldn't agree more. Unfortunately I find his contribution totally boring and the same drivel repeated time after time.

This camera looks to be fantastic. Not for me unfortunately as like many millions around the World, I sit and watch 10s of thousands wiped off my pension fund! Probably wont recover from this as a bit late in life!

On another note of disappointment, I’m guessing this will not be around anytime this year. The whole World is in a state of turmoil. Businesses are starting to fail already. Airlines closing or at the very least reducing flights / staff levels etc. Supply chains completely messed up. This situation is not going to change for several months and the worse is yet to come.

Basically not a great time for a new launch!

If Canon pull this off it will indeed be a bloody miracle!

Reality check people! I hope I am totally wrong. If this camera is launched anytime this year, and is readily available at a reasonable price then Canon have done a fantastic job.

My heart goes out to all those Families affected by the virus.

Stay safe and well people.

Laslen: I see a lot of people talking about Sony trolls, but I haven't actually seen a comment by one yet. In fact, checking profiles of some negative comments, I see Canon gear listed.

@kandid So by your comment above all Canon fans are so delighted with everything in Canon land they would never “dish the dirt”?

Interesting.

MartynasMartynas: Waiting for another Sony user who will claim Sony colours are better, video is better, build is better, weather sealing is better, battery is better

Looks like a great camera for the “Pros” that need all it offers. Not sure many of those pros frequent this place. As a Sony user (previously Nikon) I am very happy to see Canon coming out with this new product. Personally I have no use for this but doesn't stop me from acknowledging a superb piece of professional equipment. Now lets see what Nikon come up with?

@ Martynas. On another note you seem hell bent on “stirring the pot” as you have done in other comments sections. You claim insecurity of Sony owners!?
I think you need help!

In reply to:

MartynasMartynas: As usually, Sony users feel so insecure constantly bashing other cameras. Reminds me Lagdroid 150$ AliExpress branding phone users who say how inferior iPhones are. Comical

Actually seems very few Sony users commenting here. Nothing different whatsoever to the response received when Sony announce something new.

So absolutely no insecurity from my side. Looks like a fine camera to me. Great for all you “Pros” out there that need what it offers. Probably excludes most of the commenters below (and above!).

JosephScha: So now I know: 85% gets this Canon camera a Gold award. 85% doesn't seem guaranteed to get a Gold award, I'm sure I could cite examples. Why the discrepancy?

Then change it!!

(unknown member): FZ1000 II is much more pleasant to use in every way, I'd never pick the Sony over it.

In your opinion!
