robblackett: Scanning through some of the comments here I can only wonder at the bitterness of some people.

I wonder, if this is your reaction to what is only a camera company, how you would cope if something really important happened in your lives?

You read too much in the comments here...

As usual, for anything regarding Canon the keyword is "stiff". The Canon's executives' words are soaked in stiffness in any single letter... "we still want to wait, wait wait...we're not sure yet... one thing at a time, calm. Caaaaaaaaalllllmmmm... (zzzzzz)"

shadowz: I am hoping the IQ offers losslessly compressed RAW........as an option ..!

Being 24 Mp, lossless compressed raw is not as worthy as for the A7RIII.

silentstorm: The last time I remember something so ground breaking was the launch of the Canon 10D 6MP DSLR.

Amazing what Sony has achieved in such a short time!!!

It broke the 2000$ ground, with all those features :) That is something

D135ima: So. Canon will wait another 2.5 years in pride and deafness before release the update of 5d series and 4 years before updating the 6d ? Or they understand that there is something wrong with theirs FF line up and its need to do be something with all this situation ?

Here are some:

https://www.digitalrev.com/article/canon-full-frame-mirrorless-rumours-send-internet-into-meltdown

Anyway, canon M cameras are no match for sony A7 line up. Canon will have to enter the FF mirrorless market sooner or later (and they're already very late...), also considering that Nikon basically stated officially that they will do. Not a chance canon will keep going on with dslr and M mount cameras only.

They're preparing a FF mirrorless with EF-only mount, according to more and more solid rumors. Possible announcement at the CP+ show on early march.
I feel disappointed though, from both sony and canon with this likely "EF-only mount" feature, that they both ignored the small size factor of a mirrorless. I thought that the reduced flange distance from the sensor would help there, perhaps I'm wrong.

SETI: Eek. Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is smaller and lighter! Loosing mirror didn't help Fujifilm?!

And the iphone is even lighter and it can browse the internet too.

JensR: I am still disappointed that there is no way to get the dehaze and pano-wrap functions as a standalone .exe. It became clearer and clearer that it would not happen, but still, I am glad I stuck to the "perpetual(*)" version of Lightroom. (I kind of was hoping the last version would come out after the Sony A7iii (non-R) was released and supported, alas...)
I had a look at the alternatives and I think nothing is yet ready to replace LR for me. But it's not far off.

Otherwise, if Adobe comes up with a license where once you have subscribed to more than 12 months of CC you get a "perpetualised" .exe of the last LR version you paid for, then I'll probably sign up.

I used it. Just don't expect miracles like "de-fog", but it gave me nice results around 10-20%.

There is a way to get dehaze on LR 6.1:
https://petapixel.com/2015/06/24/this-preset-pack-brings-real-dehaze-to-lightroom-6-1/
I tried and it works! The trick relies on the fact that the feature is implemented in the standalone version, but hidden behind the lack of a slider in the interface. If I'm correct, The guy cleverly created the dehaze presets with CC, which can then be used on LR6.1. You get one preset for each 5% dehaze increment.

zakk9: The next thing will obviously be photo-like 3D renderings of old paintings. Those Rembrandt images are so hopelessly low-res. What on earth was he thinking?

You're talking like someone TODAY shoots b&w, and someone else brings colors to it.
Rembrandt made art and whatever he painted was his choice. The old b&w photos were not always b&w by choice... nor was the exploiting b&w as an art expression (even considering it was the only medium available). Sometimes, you know, you had to shoot a photo and b&w was the only medium available.

They better retire CC Classic at the next iteration, since what in the world is the point of using two different apps, with different features? Just treat the cloud as one of the storage devices, plus the local drives, and you got all in one.

Bgpgraebner: Geez. I'm a broke-ass student who lives on approximately $500/month (in Brazil) and even I don't mind paying $10/month for adobe products. Don't you guys get paid for your work or anything? One would think that you can easily embed the cost of a $10/month software in their paid work.

I calculated that with my LR5 and LR6 upgrades, I paid less than 3$/month during the last 4 years. And it's decreasing.

True, from now on.

" if you spend hundreds of dollars on a new camera, it seems unrealistic to expect a corporation to accommodate that choice, unpaid." Well, it doesn't seem unrealistic to me, since that's what Affinity Photo is doing TODAY and also what Adobe always did for years before switching to CC. Now that we got subscription only, the last 20 years of software update policies became suddenly unrealistic?

elgol20: Where is the standalone version?

That sucks big time. I'll really have to look somewhere else now, if I want something with good performance and workflow. And in any case I'll have to in the future, when LR 6 won't be compatible with my next camera... :(

dSLRs will remain king for photographers, while mirrorless will remain a dead end technology.

If you have a mirrorless camera, you should get rid of it, since it's not good.

Azathothh, do you realize what my comment was about? Is there a dslr able to shoot 20 fps? NO. And it'll be very hard to find one in the future, and if and when that will happen, mirrorless technology would likely allow en entry camera to shoot VIDEOS in sensor full rez... Is there a dslr able to to shoot with no blackout? NO. Will there be one? Yes, if it adopts guess what? Mirrorless technology (live view, mirror and shutter up). The point is claiming that dslr will always be the king is plain wrong NOW because there are some things that mirrorless ALREADY can do better NOW. You expect mechanical shutters to progress faster than sensors? And you're going to claim dslr will be always superior because TODAY they can shoot faster rates with flash? Seriously? (And I didn't even verify this one). Get a grip, and try to understand what we're talking about here.

And anyway, adding to that: the original poster wrote about the d850 putting "an end to any debate", not even d5 or 1dXII, which is just ridiculous.

Azathothh:
1) 14 fps raw uncompressed: the A9 shoots 12fps uncompressed. And 20 compressed. With no blackout. It's a trade off, no dslr can flip the mirror 20fps, all dslr intrinsecally have blackout, and how the quality is affected in A9's lossy compression is debatable to say the least... we're already very far here from the original claim "dSLRs will remain king for photographers, while mirrorless will remain a dead end technology." aren't we? Shall we wait for the next generations respectively?
2) Flash at 14 fps? That's not a camera thing (not to mention, a mirror/mirrorless thing...), that's a flash (and battery...) thing and I'm not aware of any technology in flash nor battery department able to achieve that.
3) Feeling like a toy: that's your own subjective thing and it doesn't matter in this topic... have you ever held an A9 in your hands anyway? With battery grip possibly? And again, why exactly anyone should be certain that no mirrorless will ever match a dslr in that sense?
