If you went to someone who knew nothing of the history of photography, and showed them two designs, one for a mirror system, with its complexity, and the other mirrorless, there would be no contest. Why have something so much more complicated? Now, I appreciate mechanical things, but the limitations of the mirror system place it firmly in the "yes, amazing, but things evolve" category.

jkokich: Gold? For these unimpressive shots? With all those cons?

Tan68, no, not the composition. Aza, skin tones are all well and good, but for a MF camera, the IQ should be far and away superior to FF, or what's the point? Or, were you being sly, and subtly agreeing with me?

jkokich: Very well written piece! A lot of the science is beyond me; I look at the photos, and the Fuji's just aren't as impressive as they should be.

Curses! Foiled again!

In reply to:

hioe04: I know Leica is all about the feel and experience of shooting but I would still like to see a blinded study showing Leica photographs versus "X" camera photographs of the same image and seeing which a sample ppl would prefer on an aesthetic basis.

If it doesn't do anything better, there's no reason to buy it.

$34 million and they couldn't develop it? What a scam.

If you don't like the shots, don't buy the phone. I think the shots look great.

RubberDials: It looks like we will all now be in loco parentis, burping Canon users getting over-excited about their first proper mirrorless.

Expect the 'EVF is no substitute for a good optical viewfinder' crowd to start turning up to work with their trousers on backwards and odd shoes. :)

I think he was kidding...

jkokich: My iPhone 6s Plus has fantastic stabilization built in. This is pretty much useless.

Impressive footage. Aside from the tracking ability, though, I'm good with my iPhone alone. The Osmo is, however, better than I thought it would be.

Alan, you're telling me this thing will do that? I'd love to see that footage; I'll be happy to stand corrected.

Exit10: Interesting but does not seem to support 4K video or 1080p at 60fps which limits its attraction to me

Exit10 that was hilarious! Thank you for making me laugh! (I love my iPhone 6sPlus with all that stuff!)

jkokich: I'm comparing the IQ of the Canon with the IQ of my Sony A3000, which cost me $260. The Canon is $1200? Canon fail.

Oh, I checked the raw, as well. $1200 vs $260? The fact that Sony even comes close is a Canon fail.
