Will be trying this when 120 format hits the shelves. My current go-to is Portra 160 or 400... perfect tones

The only thing sad is that mentality

PostModernBloke: Nikon cameras are better than Canon ones; Panasonic are better than Fuji; Canon are better than Olympus; Leica are better than Sony; Fuji are better than Pentax. Hasselblad are better than Sigma.

Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic, Hasselblad, Leica, Zeiss, Sigma etc.

Such foolishness. A bit sad, and nothing really relevant to photography. Knock yourselves out...

Best comment thus far

We are all in the middle of the if-it-can-be-done age. However, more often times than not they present solutions to inane problems

GabrielZ: That drop-in filter capability is a brilliant touch and incredibly useful for new users of this camera with legacy Canon glass, Nikon should do the same for their Z series.

I applaud Canons diligence in the design of these

At least it will be able to park closer at shopping centers.

I purchased nice Pentax 645 to which I'll put back to good use

CaNikonianite: "...citing the need to develop features and functionality while 'ensuring peak performance that takes advantage of modern hardware.'"

That's tech talk for 'we don't really care about you as much as your credit card information.'

Nailed it

A true digital rangefinder and compact lenses other than Leica or the older Epson RD's (this is a pipe dream but it is what I'd like to see the most)

Superglue: I may be interested in this as a pocket camera for $300 . Maybe it will go down later.

RIP DSLRs..

So juvenile. These type of comments make me laugh, thanks

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...
