Papa48: My original FZ1000 images are sharper, and less washed out than these. Sorry, not a very good representation, to my eyes.

Does the FZ1000 MK II have a Leica lens like on the MK-I Version? yes or no???

Mark3794: This thing keeps overheating even when the temperature threshold is set to high.
Where are all the R5 overheating trolls?

In particular, image processing is now handled separately from other tasks rather than competing with them,

So, they have/or are trying to copy Panasonic here: Similar indeed!! good old Panasonic cured the overheating issue on the, G5, with video/photographing separation circuit wizardry with great success, before it even came to market, the G5 can `video forever` cool indeed!! 😎

Tailslol: So this helpless insect is supposed to behave the same way with that huge camera on its back and go about its daily life? Doubtful.

Some things are done without any good reason.

Wow!! what a `beastie of a camera!! 😁

mferencz: Appears to be a great camera and a much touted video fiasco. Somebody serious about video looking for an all in one unit really needs to consider how important video is. It appears as if you might need specialized equipment in this day and age.

Aye!! An ice-cool brick from yer freezer!!

PhotoFactor: Notice the progression over the past few years:
1 - "I don't need/want a mirrorless camera, I love my DSLR, EVFs suck, I need an OVF" (said by Canikon shooters)
2 - Canon/Nikon come out with initial mirrorless models
3 - Canon/Nikon come out with next-gen mirrorless models that start competing with their DSLRs
4 - Canikon shooters "I'm going to get their new mirrorless camera"

Aye PhotoFactor, and dont forget how they all laughed at the so-called `Flippy Screens (`oo!! i hate the flippy screen, i just love my `fixed screen`) a brilliant standard feature now, changed days for most of them nay-sayers!!

Thoughts R Us: The R5 clearly is the most anticipated camera of the year and for good reason. Also, congratulations to Canon for doing such an effective marketing job with this gradual product reveal.

Clearly Canon feels they have something to be proud of; they are not one to overstate their case.

Hmmm!! what ever happened to that `Sharp 8K mirrorless camera, was it ever tested? is it in production yet i wonder!! πŸŽ¬πŸ“·

Jylppy: EOS R5 looks definitely an interesting product from Canon. More competition is just good for everyone. Monopolies and de facto monopolies lead to higher prices and slower pace of innovation. Even the Sony, Fuji etc customers will win since more competitive Canon will limit their ability to overprice their products.

So before you start ditching the R5, think bit ahead.

It would be a pity if the camera video was ruined with `Jello` something that Canon needs to improve greatly on its DSLR and Mirrorless lines!!

Greg7579: To follow up:
It all has to do with IBIS. Fuji released the XH-1 because they had to have IBIS to survive and they had to make the body bigger to do it back then. But then as soon as the XH-1 came out, Fuji killed it by releasing the XT-3 right on top of it. But it had no IBIS. Now, in order to survive, Fuji finally figured out how to get IBIS into the XT body, so out comes the XT-4 with IBIS but no new sensor yet. Now they have to decide if they kill the very good XH line (they should not) and kill the non-IBIS XT line (they should). I think they might release a new XH-2 a year from now and keep the bigger body and have a lot of fast action capability with a new sensor. Then they have an XT/XP and XH line, with no non-IBIS XT line.

Kwick1: While it has a number of nice improvements, I won’t be buying it because of the flippy screen. I much prefer a tilt screen.

Frog on a log: I only quickly searched for the topic of weight, but if I am not mistaken, unless there is some commercial use or other reason you would need to register your drone, then a drone weighing less than 0.55 pounds are exempt from these rules.

"Producers of UAS weighing less than 0.55 pounds (current weight threshold for requirement to register) may, but would not be required to, comply with the proposed remote identification design and production requirements."

This would mean drones like the Mavic Mini could continue to be produced and be used without the need for the additional identification requirements.

Peaceful times breed weak men...the strong men, who fought and died for our rights are turning in their graves seeing these pink haired, skinny jean wearing hipsters, vote for the death of their rights, freedom, and their country!! πŸ‘Œ

jungleexplorer: Well, once again, Freedom is sacrificed for Security, good honest people are punished because of the actions of an evil few. Guys, you need to listen to me and listen to me good. It is not the FAA at fault here. It is the American people who have long ago stopped valuing freedom and liberty. Sorry, but it is true.

Yup, at the end of the day its all about inciting fear into the public's psyche, so the sheep will willingly vote to be locked in their own prison...on their own land. Gain absolute control through stealth!! πŸ‘Œ

In reply to:

bwana4swahili: "Many rural areas don't get any signal, which will effectively limit where drones can be operated."
This requirement would essentially shutdown our drone operations since we mainly fly in mountainous terrain with not internet or cell phone service. Severe limitation and short sighted thinking on this point!

The world has seen the threat posed by the misuse of information technology and witnessed the vulnerability of democracies to disinformation!!

Higgins2002: Almost the same in EU and on top of that you have to get a drivers licence for flying your drone.
