dabhand: The Laowa 7.5 f2 is a cracking manual lens - small, lightweight and rectilinear too.

Adding a LIKE for using the word CRACKING. Who does that anymore?

Prairie Pal: PHHHT, -5 to +5 ?? If your wearing that in Canadian "harsh" conditions you better be layering it with a thermal Bunny Hug and a toque.

The “bunny hug” is a particularly Saskatchewan term for what people elsewhere in Canada might call a “hoodie” – a hooded sweatshirt with a big pocket on the front. One of the first mentions of a “bunny hug” sweater is from 1978. ... It later became a marker of Saskatchewan identity.

eastvillager: I own two Canada goose jackets and love them. I went to their web page and they have this jacket in black. It actually looks great in that color. Red not so much. Canada Goose stands behind their jackets for life so though expensive you will have it forever. They just reconditioned two jackets of mine, one about 20 years old for free. Replaced the fur, inner
sleeves and velcro. Great company.

It sounds like Canada Goose is "all-in" with customer satisfaction. Not every business advertising service can truly pull it off.

I'm glad to see this. It always seemed insane to be editing anything with a qwerty keyboard, (or mouse).
Still this boxy format should be improved upon eventually with something more ergonomical, compact and customizable. There is opportunity for voice command as well.

No complaints from me. Now I can look forward to picking up a used mii, instead of mi.

Photography with a phone is completely unenjoyable to me. Glare, fumbling settings, aging eye sight, zero ergonomics are a few words that describe my experience. I use it only for the utilitary convenience, and only rarely. When those obstacles are removed I will embrace the "flat format".

In reply to:

Troutguy: how many recalls for this one?

Good Point, I think they mention it's a new shutter.
As someone who was burned during the D600 shutter oil fiasco, I am sitting this out for 6 months. I'm at the age where this will be my last camera body, given my investment in F-mount lenses and flashes, and I don't want to waste my time contending with production issues.

AriesII: D780, this will be a low light beast with awesome 10-bit 4K video with good focus, while offering MUCH better battery life over mirrorless cameras, better weather sealing, more lens options than any mirrorless. This camera is amazing

Agreed. Battery Life and backward compatibility with existing batteries in one's equipment roster is important.

Does anyone else suffer from strong Pareidolia? In image 11 I have a very difficult time seeing anything other than a red elephant. In fact I thought it was an abstract of elephant reflection in water on cloudy day.

About the lighter feel and plastic body. Think of it this way; coming from a phone as their main camera, the M5iii will be a positive tactile feel for users new to the ILC experience. For current owners of previous M5 models, you gotta move up a level to retain the nirvana (M1).

pahnson: Maybe they should fix the incredible slow light room. Or the INCREDIBLE unstable and unreliable Premiere "pro" and not this bu*lshit cloud stuff.

@iozx...Slowgan? 😁

Apple's next new feature: gyroscope to guarantee falling phones land on their backs facing up, adding co$ to the new generation. Samsung will counter with a free software upgrade that activates the correct facing camera..! DUH!

In reply to:

Prairie Pal: It would have been nice to have a second shooter with a DSLR and the 85 AFS 1.8. Shooting identical images and cameras set up relatively similar to each other. Real Life comparisons to give us references to gauge the degree of improvement between "old system to new generation".

NextLupus, thank-you, but Ricci was using the same body for both lenses. I was thinking in terms of system to system, ie. if a majority of your shooting is at 85mm, is the gain significant enough that it would contribute to the tipping point of switching to the Nikon Mirrorless format. But yeah that was still a pretty good comparison in his video. Depends on what apertures you prefer to work with.
