CCD FTW: I think you missed a few cons:

- No AF micro adjust
- Inconsistent user experience between rear LCD and viewfinder
- Only one control dial, not best in class
- Despite punchy pleasing images for people photos, landscape images are bland and muddy
- Viewfinder is small and dark, not best in class
- Battery life is appalling
- Still larger and heavier than competition
- Video quality is worst in class
- Lacks a range of dedicated lenses

But hey, we continued our obsession with autofocus tracking and dynamic range and forgot about everything else including having consistency across reviews.

I need to call Captain Planet because this thread became toxic

MrBrightSide: When are you blokes going to stop fooling around with these little toys and add test shots from real cameras to your database—a Hasselblad shooting Provia, maybe or a Wista loaded with Ektar....Or are you afraid of what you'll discover?????

RZ is magic. I regret selling mine but they are a bargain price now. The Pentax 67 is looking awfully nice too, prices have come up a bit for those.

Philnw2: Canon says they are going to build some mirrorless cameras, but here we go again, the same old tired flapping mirror design that is so noisy and requires the post chimping to see how the image was exposed. Mirrorless shows you how the image is going to be exposed BEFORE you take the picture. Great for beginners, instead of these inscrutable flappers.

No camera requires post chimping, that is up to the photographer. The photogrpahers skills should be adequate enough not to rely on chimping. So much angst towards a camera you wont buy. Why? Beginners should not be able to see what they get before hand so they actually learn something,

Flap flap fly away

Ernest M Aquilio: I find it utterly appalling that this camera for the price doesn't offer 4K, 100% viewfinder, best color, best everything and wash my dishes when I'm hung over in the morning. Simply appalling. I cannot recommend this camera to any human on this planet.

@The Davinator yes

CCD: I guess your definition of dedicated lenses and mine differs. To each his own. I have successfully used an EF 50mm f/1.8 from 1990 (1st Gen) on this camera with no issues, retains exif data etc. If that's not dedicated then I am in error and will cordially bow out.

- Lacks a range of dedicated lenses?
So the EF-S and EF lineup are not enough lenses?

But hey it's YOUR cons list

Congratulations to all the artists/photographers featured here. A thought for those who don't agree with the selection or feel that they seem average, uninspiring, etc. please make some images that you feel are and submit them next time. Winners don't have to carry universal appeal.

The photography world is ever evolving.

This is a good sign, lets hope for both analog and digital options.

A very touching reminder of how photography is used to express and preserve. Thank you for this post, I lost two grandparents to cancer and regrettably didn't take the time to document them during their golden years.

I would love to just be in the studio during the shoot to observe a master at work. This is very humbling, thanks for sharing this.

In reply to:

thx1138: Just a symptom of the wider malaise afflicting a very sick, dangerous and divided nation. The escalation in Police violence over the last decade is horrifying, we even had one Georgian Police officer caught on his own video telling a white women he pulled over not to worry, because they only shoot black people! They are looking into it.

The sickening gun culture has now desensitised people so much unless it personally happens to them, they nod their head and tut and then forget all about what's happening 5s later.

The scary thing there is NO solution, there is no will to change and so many Americans believe it is their god given right to blast the crap out of anything they like at any cost. Reap what you sow.

That 50mm has piqued my interest. I am sure these new TS lenses are optically way more than my needs but the macro and TS capability will propel my macro exploration further, better start saving now...

Ernest M Aquilio: This is exactly the powerhouse that Nikon needed to have a quite formidable line up 7500/500/750/850/D5, excellent! The DSLR is not going anywhere.
