Woodman411: The flaw here is assuming the advantages of mirrorless are overwhelming when in reality they are not, especially for pros. The smaller size advantage only has merits when coupled with an equally small lens, however most fast quality lenses are quite large, especially the mainstay-for-ff-pros f/2.8 zooms. The 20+ fps advantage also has practical limits, even to an enthusiast, who for a 3 second spread, needs to look at 60 files and pick one to process. Raw will exacerbate this. EVF versus OVF has been debated, the reality is, for prolonged usage (eg. event photography), prolonged use will create more eye strain, if you doubt this point, that having an electronic screen shoot light directly into your eyeball from 1cm away, I can't help you.

I'm not denying the advantages of mirrorless - it definitely has them over dslr, especially to the average consumer segment. But going into the pro field, the advantages are not so convincing.

Pretty much my thoughts. I've tried both and find it rather abysmal to stare at the world though an EVF. To each their own, but your statement does bring up valid points that are hard to refute (especially the pro segment)

My interests lie in the rumored GFX Xpro variant rumored to be announced later this year

Ernest M Aquilio: I know I am in the minority here when I admit I don't understand all the hype and hoopla over Canon and mirror-less. I was under the impression that Canon's current line up was sufficient for most peoples needs, albeit with some redundant camera models. It would behoove Canon to update a few lenses IMO, 50mm f/1.4 is in dire need of a refresh, the 20mm f/2.8 and some others. The 5D IV and 80D are workhorses that are proven to still get the job done with an unmatched ecosystem

That makes sense. The future holds interesting developments

Interesting strategy from Canon here, flood the market with the name. I guess they've done enough research to determine this category of camera is warranted. A very inexpensive way to get a new model and buy into the EOS system. The sales figures will tell...

A nice thing to see from Canon. Surely not on everyone's radar but it may help instill confidence in amateur shooters and photo enthusiasts alike.

Father Bouvier: Mildly interesting video, boring pictures, all the same -- one would have been enough. No point comparing film to digital, film is dead and there is nothing that can revive it.

Hard to beat the 67... Digital will never completely win it over for me. Certainly an interesting read and great (though very subjective) results

Focus on what you prefer to shoot and build upon it (pun most likely intended)

Paul B Jones: There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to humans. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of human fears and the summit of our knowledge. This is the dimension of DPR. It is an area which we call the Canon Never Gets the Credit it Deserves Zone.

Best comment here by far

A nice sample gallery here. Seems to be a very nice all-in-one travel optic. Not for me, but perfect for many needs.
