I had been an Elan 7e and EOS 3 shooter, and the 10D was pushed as an Elan 7 replacement. Its lack of traditional features actually got me to look beyond Cannon for a DSLR... And never came back.

I swear I must have been the only eye control or DEP. Both awesome and tosed with the 10D.

frosti7: When someone asks: "what second lens should i buy?"
The answer will always be - 50f1.8

I would rather say, buy a fast nornal lens. 50mm 1.8 is only that fast normal in full 35mm.

Kaso: "the best quality telephoto zooms tend to be the ‘constant aperture’ models, which maintain the same F-number throughout their zoom range"

My daughter is learning photography with her first interchangeable-lens camera. Intelligent as she is, she has great trouble making practical sense of the statement above. Do they mean 'constant maximum aperture'? Why haven't I seen any best-quality f/7.1 zoom lenses? But of course I can set the aperture to any f-number within the designed range at any focal length in the zoom range! What do they mean by the lens maintaining the same f-number throughout its zoom range?

Constant maximun aperture. Though lower change apertures are nice like 2.8-3.5 or 2.8-4.

PerryAndrewM: I currently own an OM-D M5mk1 and a GH3, with a bunch of lenses. My next camera is a toss up between the M5mk2 and the G80 (I'm in UK). They are obviously very close, especially since I'm not interested in 4K video and the GH3 is good for HD.
The G80 apparently does not support the Olympus remote multi-flash system which is a downer for me (the GH3 works fine). The M5mk2 has the 'class-leading' stabilisation but does this stay true if you add a Panny lens IS2 to the G80. Now here is the rub - one of my existing Panny lenses was promised for the IS2 upgrade but nearly a year later it is still a no show. That will probably just tip the scales for the M5mk2.

Double check that. My read that it does but GX does not.

Many are stunning. Not really sure why the negative stuff.

Is there any way we could get the LG G2 and Xperia Z1 compared to their real peers like the Galaxy S4 and HTC One and IPhone 5S? Right now we have two "dedicated" camera phones vs two general phones. Not a good comparison.

micronean: More micro four-thirds products will only help the market, even if it's made in china--where already so much is made anyway. In terms of manufacturing logistics, it's pretty convenient.

The only problem I have with Chinese products is that they're often copies or re-badges of products that they did not originally design. That includes the IBM "Thinkpad".

I would prefer they had the courage to create a native quality chinese brand with native chinese design.

Er, no that doesn't include the IBM Thinkpad. Lenovo bought the entire division, which is why support and design are still in the USA... With the same people. They had to hire every employee, and even expand the local colleges.

Stick to the topic... This is a camera site.

And any new micro four thirds body, helps micro four thirds. It makes people want to produce more third party lenses.

Hey, does anyone know if the R-Adapter automates the aperture setting, or is it all stop down? Hoping it can make use of the lenses as they were designed.
