Walt_A: Why keep harping on about the olympus menus? As someone who has the lowly e-pm2 to the e-m1, it's fine. You don't have to dive into it if you're a beginner, and as yet I've not had a camera that is so customisable as them, even the e-pm2. We saw what happened when they did simplify it (to appease reviewers?), we got the e-m10 mk iii, with less features and customisation than the mkii (which I'm keeping). And yes I've got Pentax, Canon and Panasonic's so I'm familiar with other manufacturers menu. It's a stuck record, give it a break.....

The Super Control Panel should be editable. There are some areas I never use, I wish I could change them or at least delete them to enlarge the rest.

What I really love is the AI recognition of content of the images. Sometimes I remember a photo and I use the search function to find it, for instance "bicycle, snow, mountains" and the photo I looked for is among the displayed ones.

Mortal Lion: I find it surprising that are only two aps-c mirrorless camera's with IBIS.

and you can count the old Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D from 2004, a DSLR, plus all following DSLRs from Sony

Kona Mike: how do you get "zed six" from "Z6" isn't it "zee six"??

having in mind that the brand name Nikon was derived from the manufacturer company's name Nippon Kogaku, it should be pronounced knee-con.

AKPhotoArt: An underrated camera!
Despite the limitations for video the camera is a real fun to shoot photos with an excellent AF hit rate.
Ergonomics are somewhat different to Canon DSLR but the evaluation of its ergonomics is a very personal one.
I could adapt quickly and love to work with the EOS R.
The build quality is excellent and the hit rate in one shot AF is exceptional high.

We've got used to wait and see meanwhile

I own it - I want it - I had it

Why not "I don't want it" as well ??

I am in the EOS system for 15 years now, but this model is not for me.

MarcoSartoriPhoto: What I really like in this camera is the multi aspect sensor. Curious nobody mention it.

I never chose the angle of view as a diagonal of the image (this is what is kept constant!), but always in horizontal or vertical direction!

There is no aspect ratio that uses the full resolution of the sensor, it's always cropped. I would not call this an advantage. It is the precondition for a compact lens.

Bgfreeman: So this new film will exit the wrong side of the cassette and only have sprocket holes on one side?

Interesting. Wonder what sort of camera this is intended for.

did you ever use 35mm film?
I found some old Kodachrome rolls these days, everything looks the same.

In reply to:

FuhTeng: I'm surprised the screen isn't flip-around-to-the-front capable like the G9.

It looks nice and I continue to read about how Panasonic has done so much right with their m4/3 cameras, so I'm interested, but not in the market for this since I'm a Nikon DSLR owner and the Z twins are appealing to me.

I'm curious, however, that if I wanted to go FF from scratch (starting inexpensive and working my way up), I think there's little case for this camera for me. I shoot stills for money and video for fun so the high-quality video that's inevitably coming from these two isn't helpful for me.

I'm very curious to see where this goes. So much will depend on Sigma filling out the reasonably-priced lenses quickly. Yes, I'm ignoring Leica because of their insane prices for sane lenses.

I'm also curious how well DfD autofocus is going to work with the larger sensor and smaller DoF.

Yes

....as usual with mirrorless cameras

Rihass: Almost the perfect camera. No IBIS. OMG I was ready to preorder it. I have the XT20 without IBIS and it is a pain.

even with stabilzed lenses for video IBIS is very welcome because it compensates rotational shakes.

Fwiler1: Really well done. Both of you have a great voice and speaking ability that makes me want to keep on watching. And never loose the humor even if Chris's face does look like a garbage can.

as a non-native-english-speaker I'm glad that I understand every word in all these videos from Chris and Jordan

mike earussi: Canon is obviously too afraid of gutting the sales of their dslrs to turn out a competitive product. It's quite pathetic and parsimonious and very short sighted on their part. Seriously, who would buy one when Sony is so much superior?

Ok. Three years with Olympus and no problems with IBIS.

@Jack Jian
did you ever try a modern mirrorless camera that combines IBIS and in-lens-stabilization? It's not redundant, the combination is superior! 1 second or more handheld, and if you don't need that, every handheld video is obviously more stable, no swaying horizon, even when walking!

In reply to:

medon78: I guess nobody really expected Canon to surprise us with all the hoped-for features in their first shot.
Nevertheless, for stills the camera will be a joy to use, and it will sell like hot cakes.
Sooner or later Canon will in further generations finally add decent 4k video. But I am very afraid Canon will never ever add IBIS, which really makes me sad.
Again, as expected...

"at the edges/corner where the sensor moves to a greater extent" no, that's not correct - only when rotation is compensated, a movement that in-lens-stabilization can't stabilize. I have Olympus as second system and their IBIS is superior. A best solution: lens-stabilization PLUS IBIS !

In reply to:

Kalin: Now it's Sony's turn to do the right thing and update the support for old A-mount lenses on FE cameras. There's tons of great A-mount lenses out there despite what you often read on these pages. The current LA-4, or whatever it is called, is a huge, ugly affair with outdated mechanics. Did I mention it is huge and ugly?

Come on Sony; you make fantastic cameras... it can't be that difficult to make one good adapter, right?

Problem is the motor! Even this Nikon adapter has no motor and so does only support newer lenses with built-in AF drive in terms of autofocus.

In reply to:

tlinn: Setting up AF functionality to mimic 3D AF seems obvious but I don't know that we can assume that it would be as good in a mirrorless body given the different hardware used for AF.

Richard Butler is "not criticizing the AF algorithms themselves: we've not fully tested it yet but the Z 7's tracking seems incredibly sticky: my concern is solely about the user interface"
