This will live or die by how well it focuses and IQ past 400mm equivalent. Although the high-res touchscreen sounds great, the lens is really its only standout feature. If it performs, I can see plenty of people buying this. Sony's RX10 only goes to 200mm equivalent (but is brighter). The FZ1000 is closer, but reportedly isn't too hot at the long end.

GodSpeaks: 'Is Canon serious?'... Well, obviously not, since they decided to avoid the USA.

Right, because a company can't be serious if it is only marketing to the most populous area in the world. Canon wants to make money. It sells many more mirrorless cameras at higher prices in Asia. We may not like it, but I understand their business decision.

photo nuts: I wonder if the D300 and 7D will just die a natural death. Their replacement will probably be similar to Nikon D7000, if the latter is not already considered the successor to D300. :)

IMO, a 50 MP FF image when cropped down to APS-C size should be a sufficient replacement for those who like the reach of APS-C

But that's just a matter of time, bandwidth and storage, all of which can be solved.

alexst4: ... "wide F2.8 aperture to allow faster shutter speeds for narrow depth of field" ..
Man, how narrow do you want it? at 2.8 and 180mm at macro distances it's got to be razor thin. You need more depth of field, not less. I bet it weighs like a brick too. Quality may be good, but the rest is a total overkill for my needs.

A brighter viewfinder is very useful in macro shooting regardless of whether you are stopped down...
