In reply to:

kuklukklak: A solid nothing-special camera that will probably sell really well as a more serious affordable choice to replace the rebel. Now waiting for the traditional comments:
- I want this feature and it doesnt have it -> no one will buy it for sure (I know 2 persons who said they will not buy it as well)
- I threaten not to buy it
- Its not mirrorless so canon must be dying
There you go. Enjoy

Also:

Only one card slot! This ancient mirror flapping technology camera is already obsolete! hahaha - oh the humanity

Ernest M Aquilio: For the complainers; the simple solution to your self induced quandary...don't buy it.

Mel, I was unaware that my comment could be interpreted as an arrogant fanboy. I will have to use my words more carefully next time. Also, I used to own Nikon (no longer) and wish them no ill will. Complaints to me are usually seen as whining, especially on a type/text forum or comments section - though it is true that they are not synonyms - I can interpret them as such. As photographers today we are quite spoiled with the technology we have access to, so I just don't understand why so much complaining exists. Perhaps a communication error? I just think you have me labeled wrong that's all. Good day

Mel, I am afraid your assessment of me is quite off, but that's okay you are only going by what has been posted on the comments section. Thank you for telling me how I am, that was quite a tangent of assumptions.

I embrace criticism, not whining. Most of what is posted in these comments I perceive as whining. That is my opinion.

It was the 10D that I borrowed from a friend that sold me on the EOS digital system.

This has piqued my interest, combining it with the 77D will make for a nice combo for the general macro work that I do.

Arca45Swiss: I know a lot of people, even pros, use Sony. I once brieflyowned an RX1R but didn't like the cyborg experience. I have a Sony TV but don't think I'd ever buy a Sony camera again.

I felt the same when I borrowed a RX1

Ernest M Aquilio: Lovely little lens, perhaps in a few years on the used market I'll pick one up. The images are rendered very honestly, would be good for documentary or environmental portrait work. In my opinion its also quite charming looking.

Thanks for the samples Barney.

Keep an open mind, a closed one is a terrible waste.

I appreciate the insight, however my thoughts of purchasing it at a discount were much less drastic than your example. I have reasonable expectations. And if the price were to increase then it is just a more viable investment.

In reply to:

firemonkey: Why don't jet fighters have an EVF instead of a glass canopy with heads-up display? Because, all its advantages notwithstanding, an EVF would put the pilot at a disadvantage, which would mean losing his plane and his life.

I think the essential problem with EVFs, no matter how good they are, is that they abstract the world away from you. You're no longer looking at the scene in all its immediacy, but rather at a representation of the scene. It's like trying to do photography via closed-circuit TV. That might be interesting in itself, but it's a different experience from being immersed in the environment you're recording.

EVFs confer some advantages, but let us ask ourselves, why are manufacturers pushing EVFs? Is it because of these advantages? Or is it because they are far cheaper to produce than a good optical finder? I contend that it's the latter, and that if money were no issue they would offer optical viewfinders, albeit with the option of a heads-up display.

@firemonkey. Very well said, thank you.

Also, just to add fuel to this, an OVF works without a battery. An image may be composed and even focused before the camera is even turned on. Not everyone needs to do this, not everyone needs an OVF, not everyone likes an EVF...

progo: My favorite is the little pancake 40/2.8. Yeah, I didn't own many Canon lenses back then.

I 2nd that for the 40mm

A very insightful and well documented process. Thank you DPReview for being able to take us through this tour. It amazes me how so much craftsmanship goes into these products and now we can really get a feel for how theses tools are made. I now have a much greater appreciation for my glass. Cheers!
