Seems like all they do is tease these days!
What a joke!

Nikon is waking up to the fact there are millions of baby boomers that want light weight lenses and quality camera body's to throw their money at. I stopped buying Canon gear years ago hoping they would innovate. It is just not going to happen any time soon IMO.
If this lens has Nikons best build quality, and optically sharp, it will be my next lens coupled with the newest Nikon body.
Thanks Nikon.

Lens Fanatics: With this "huge" improvements over version II the best way to upgrade is grab a pointed sharpie to make it III .

Haha, great response.

Not much of an update. I expect the same with the 7D III when it hits the streets.

If it died I would definitely order this MI 8 from e-bay.
Without any hesitation.

Yep, all my friends have the Samsung and I-phones. Huge thick phones. Personally I don't understand why they want to carry around those huge heavy phones?
Of course they look at mine and dismiss it immediately as a downgrade.
I personally would not trade with them...

One nail at a time in the Canon and Nikon coffin.
Keep up the good work.

garyknrd: I have been birding in a stat park for the past week. A few years ago all I saw was Canon, this hop I only saw one other guy shooting Canon. Everyone else was shooting Nikon. I was amazed at the change, 200-500, D500, D850, One guy was shooting the D5 and a 600mm FL lens. One was using the PF 300mm lens. Just a few years ago it was the total opposite.
Great going Nikon, keep it up.

Yea I hear ya Chuck.

Pretty amazing really, I never would of thought a few years ago Nikon would of come back so fast. A couple of killer cameras and good glass. Now, Nikon is all over the birding sites.
I am a Canon shooter that is waiting on the 7d III. If that is a dud. I will be heading over to the Nikon camp.
Time will tell.

Didn't see anyone shooting Sony!
One Olympus with the 300/4. But that was it.
Wait I did see three Sony bridge cameras and one Canon bridge.

I agree with the guy that wrote the article. I think they missed their mark. By a country mile..

In reply to:

aramgrg: NEW? I don't know where they got this from(maybe stolen from crashed alien craft?), but they show of this since 2010! http://global.canon/en/news/2010/aug24e.html

Still trying to figure out how to cripple it properly.
Crippling takes years of R&D!

Link | Posted on Mar 29, 2018 at 20:33 UTC

My prediction is it will be the M50 with a FF sensor.
Business as usual. It will take Canon 10 years to have a camera with the spec's of the 7r III.
I didn't see @jefftan's comment. I agree with that fully.
