Halftrack: This is a disappointing review that fails to mention a major problem with this camera.

I have one of these. I had a TG-5. Both of them are good cameras for what they are but they have an achilles heel: the purple blob.

Something in the optics of this lens causes a purple blob to appear in some photos, especially when shooting zoomed in under dim and flat lighting conditions. Some people call this "flare," and it probably is some kind of internal reflection, but it's not like normal flare from oblique lighting. It appears as a large, off-center, purple blob, when light is dim and flat and the camera is zoomed in. The blob does not move or change, no matter which direction the camera is pointing. Very frustrating!

I'm disappointed that DPR made no mention of this in their review. The issue is well documented and potential buyers should be aware of it, especially since there is no workaround and it's hard to fix in post. It wasn't mentioned in the TG-5 review either.

thanks

EOS - R APS-C....really ?

for all who don't know how to use google translator : "rumors say Canon want EOS-R also in APS-C"
es ist jetzt

In reply to:

IamJF: No mirrorless APS-C with this mount.
Not sure if this is a good idea ... a beginner (e.g. parents with newborn) doesn't start with Z6 + 3 lenses.

...and then i've a D7100 and a D90 with 7 lenses..... i would like an APS-C mirrorless for my lenses.
...I'll buy a Sony (i've an old A6000 with adapter), i'm tired to have 2 Kg on my neck (and 3 Kg in my bag).

In reply to:

Biowizard: Possibly the weirdest photo link-up I've ever heard about! My first ever 35mm SLR was a Zenit E (re-branded "Prinzflex" by Wallace Heaton, of Bond Street). The very lowest of low-tech, albeit with a surprisingly good kit lens in the form of the Helios 58mm F2, manual preset stop-down lens. Thoughts of Leica were SO far away from potential reality, that I used my Zenit until finally I could afford to buy my Olympus OM-1D. The one I still have, with 4 prime Zuiko lenses and numerous attachments, but I digress.

In the Grand Scale of Things, where 0 was nothing, and 100 was perfection, Zenit was in the zone of 5 for the camera, perhaps 20 for the optics. Leica was as near 100 for either: in other words, extreme opposite ends of the quality spectrum.

So now they are LINKING UP?!

Think I need to pour a large glass of wine.

Canon is mad they are dinosaurs. How on earth does canon think I can use this. My pictures are ART! This ugly pièce of cr... plastic looks so horrendous I can not use it. BUT serious people, you all should look at it this way. Im right. As always. I know the market best. Better than those stupid people at canon. .. Hmmm. Feels Nice to shoot from the hip at an unused new ITEM. BUT hey its a Canon so it must be crap. And I said it here first. Ignorance is bliss. ROFLMAO
