Terry M: "improving upon its predecessor in almost every measurable way."

Except for the sensor, which is the heart of the camera. This is the kind of thing that has me questioning my future with Canon.

I'm not dumping on Canon because I hate Canon. I just don't understand why they can't offer some of the same value to their customers that the upstarts are offering. Sony throws everything but the kitchen sink into all of their cameras, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Fuji offers generations of upgrades on existing models, reducing fears if instant obsolescence when new cameras are released.

If you want to make the argument Canon offers safe, proven specs for the sake of durability, ask owners of the Canon 70D who have had to replace their motherboard because they were shooting "too much video."

Canon was top dog for a long time. Now they're acting like an old dog that can't learn new tricks. People aren't going to keep giving good money for okay cameras.

"Isn't significantly lower." It shouldn't be lower at all. Not after 5 years. Yes, dual pixel AF is amazing, but this camera should be a step up and forward in every way.

Pro: This is very useful information. And from another site. Kudos!
Con: You spoiled the results.

I watched the video anyway, because Tom earned it, but it's pretty shady to spoil the conclusion.

QuarryCat: unless you take small mFT or Fujifilm lenses, it will get very heavy on your side.
I don't see this as a good practical solution.

The original 70-200 f2.8 L USM was a beauty on my Canon D30. Such great colors. But my favorite Canon lens to date? The "nifty fifty" 50mm f1.8. It does so much for so little.

First I used with any degree of success? My father's Canonet. My first favorite? Olympus Stylus Epic. First digital? Olympus D340-R. First "real" digital? Canon D30.

Finally, a reviewer who doesn't fall all over himself getting lost in the rangefinder mythos. It takes time and a LOT of practice to consistently take good photos with them. But seriously, "I'm getting old"? LOL

In reply to:

Terry M: Oh man! I had one of these and absolutely LOVED my fast-shooting "Uzi"! That constant 2.8 lens was a huge boon to my early digital experience and like another user said, the photos could be blown up to 8x10 pretty nicely. The only thing I didn't like was a tendency in mixed lighting to render blacks as purple, a phenomenon I also recall from Leica's early digital cameras. I sold mine to a coworker who wanted to shoot his kids' soccer games. I'd bought a Canon D30 and 70-200 to start my push into "real" digital photography, but I later regretted selling my "Uzi." Still do. It was a cool camera.

Oops. I thought the 2.8 was constant. Hazy glow of memory, I guess

Wow! I was a newsstand buyer of Pop Photo for YEARS. After discovering back issues in my local library there was no question in my mind they were the preeminent source on photography and photographic equipment. Everything I bought was run by their reviews first. Of course that was a while back. Now I do most of my photography-related reading online, whether it's standalone photo websites or web-based corollaries to photography magazines. On that count, PopPhoto.com is a pretty awful site. Shutterbug's done a lot better job with their site, and of course, the British magazines are still out there. So long, PopPhoto.

For a while there, I saw this camera listed in the EXIF data for photos on some of the most heavily trafficked sites on the web. It was a real workhorse.

Gorgeous video, as is becoming the standard for you guys.

That's the one that caught my eye. Makes me wonder how it would work on a M43 camera from another manufacturer.

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS D30 (138 comments in total)

I bought one secondhand in 2002-03 and years later the color of those files and the character of the images are my favorite of any Canon DSLR. I've owned or shot with the 30D, 60D and 70D, but the D30 is still a great camera.

This a nice-looking, decently specified camera — that I wish Canon had offered three years ago! I'm interested, true, but I'd be MUCH more excited if they produced a X100-style version of their Canonet.

As far as classic film bodies that need to be "digitalized," I can't imagine how much money Canon's left on the table by not coming out with a proper digital version of their Canonets. Compact. Good, fast lenses. I covet my father's, but I wish I had a digital version of my own.
