I simply prefer the lenses Sony's system offers, especially Zeiss.

The question is when Canon can catch up with Sony.

The corner sharpness looks better than Sony and Leica, but how about @f2?

Arguably Contax T3 is the best 35mm, but will you buy it for $1800? Not too different form Mamiya 7...

If Sony A7C had a better EVF, I would have chosen it, but no vote this year.

Sony sensor? It's very close to Sony to my eyes (or Sony has become closer to Nikon), but I guess current Zeiss / Sony lenses are more attractive for many, and Sony bodies can be much cheaper (Currently less than $2000 for A7RIII and $1200 for A7RII).

The pictures of this camera itself look much nicer than the pictures that this camera takes.

I wish dpreview will test those 4 cameras shooting the same scene under the same real world condition. Studio test does not tell anything about the lens character, which should be one of the most important factor of those cameras.

In reply to:

lnsmr: It appears that the reviewer is biased toward modern mirrorless, which is a good reference point for most users.
I am hoping that he can talk more about manual focusing experience. I have both RX1M2 and Q2, and both are MF by wire. MF with RX1 is just terrible, while Q2 offers amazing MF experience. Giving that AF on ZX1 is terrible, how is the MF? The 6.88MP EVF can potentially provide great MF experience.
When is the full reviewing coming out?

MF experience is very personal and subjective, and I'm afraid someone else's review would not work at all for you.

Hugo808, It's a good point if this kind of claim is still valid in this IS era, while we don't know how they calculate the perfect amount of camera weight even if it's valid...

I'm talking about this particular camera. I know they release lighter cameras (while they are still heavier than competitors).

Many Leica users deny they buy Leica because of its premium feel. They say they use Leica because Leica is superior photographic tool for their specific purpose. I would not deny premium feel itself may help them to be confident about their Leica style photography, but weight is part of premium feel? It sounds a little illogical and contradictory since Leica users are proud of Leica for portability and mobility as far as I understand.

Is there any practical reason that this camera has to be full metal like sports oriented DSLR? I actually have never seen beaten up used Leica digital cameras, while 1DX on Ebay are mostly beaten up. Leica users are probably the most careful camera user group, so I honestly feel that Leica camera does not have to be made with metal.

I'm simply curious why lighter camera is not what they want...

Looks like this is a really good invention, but for $99, I'm afraid most people would not get this until $9.99 Chinese copies are flooded on Ebay... It's sad.

Do you mean Leica cameras are deliberately heavier without scientific reasoning? If so, it's so outdated as heavy leather trekking boots... It's very strange that the rangefinder people always claim they love Leica because they are compact and practical to carry.

On article Canon EOS R5 review (2966 comments in total)

Just looking at the sample gallery, the images look heavily digitally processed, like iPhone shot images. I'm pretty sure Canon covers up the weakness of the sensor with their smart digital image processing engine. Good job, and probably it's more trendy (looks like iPhone),

Mirrorless is a godsend, because it can accept my old favorite MF lenses. Thank you mirrorless.

ybizzle: Nothing can compare to the M. Such a beautiful work of art. My M6 Titanium never leaves my sight and is always ready to capture the world. When you hold an M camera, you are holding perfection.

I agree with you. Leica is the best camera to look at.
