Once computational photography comes into its own dslr will be dead.

1d mkiin still working great on original shutter. By time it fails a9 will probably be very heavily discounted. I'll upgrade around 2025. Never buy new bodies whether car or camera . Too much sticker shock. Get used glass instead

sh10453: Sadly, most commenters never read the article. They simply glanced at the title.
This is not just a firmware update.
It's a HARDWARE upgrade through Canon's Service Center for crying out loud!!!

Canon needs to provide it gratis to show good faith.

OK, bring out the a9r and a9s. In fact bring out the a10r so I get this for cheaper.

On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (262 comments in total)

everybody just wait until canikon release serious crop and FF bodies in about 2-3 years. No need to buy from either until then. It'll take about that long for them to get it right. Until then... move along now, nothing to see here folks.

Shlomo Goldwasser: Canon, you're next

Yeah, I've been trying to tell Canon for years. But they just wouldn't listen. Now the army is at their very gates with artillery and powder a-plenty. What happens when you don't listen to the wisdom of people who use the cameras. Well, Canon, hope it doesn't become a Kodak moment for you. Can't say I didn't warn you though. That's on you.

At least Nikon put 4K in.

Will probably wear a hole in your shoulder just after a few days.

Daft Punk: Apart from the vast lens choice and clever tech like dual pixel AF, Canon is only the market leader because they have distribution, a brand and momentum.

They are the Toyota of camera makers.

Just like the cars, you cant really go wrong with them. But thankfully not everyone wants to own one.

I like the way they implement things like touch screens and wifi and make it work really well. I hate the way they deliberately cripple cameras to avoid taking sales from other product lines.

There is something cynical about Canon. I find them a hard company to like. Objectively there is little to criticise, but buying from them is like being a customer of the Imperial Empire. I am more of a Rebel Alliance kind of guy. :)

Typical Canon suit response. "Uh, we'll think about 4K/8K and other innovations when the market demands."

"But the market is demanding it now, sir."

"Uh, we'll up our imaging technology in response to consumer needs."

"OK, how exactly and on what timetable?"

"Well, we don't want to get ahead of ourselves..."

"So you basically aren't giving any new information with hard time tables?"

"Thank you for this good interview."

No info as usual.

Retzius: So other than build quality and EVF it seems to be behind the competition in almost every parameter.

Knock down the price to 599 and we can tallk

Yup, they need to put their tech in more affordable bodies.

In reply to:

marc petzold: From a technical aspect, very uninteresting camera, but it'll for sure work as womens handbag camera, or selfie cam....but without EVF....

Too expensive. At this price they need to start putting in FF sensors. Or at least 1.6x. No buy.

In reply to:

Pho Tography: I think their time is up. Too much competition and too many people who bought their cameras now have it in their drawers.

Not too many of us jump out of planes or fly thru canyons on a jetpack.

If they want to survive, they need to make a cam with a normal non fisheye lens so moms can wear it for kids parties, or family activities. Otherwise, GP is dead, and they will be in a year.

They need to put in 5 axis ibis. That is why. Canon will go next unless they heed this sage advice

Mark Turney: Now that Verizon owns Flickr, I anticipate that it will eventually be rolles into a bundled app with their phone service only. I'm sure that's what their thinking was when they bought it. The bean counters always have a financial reason.

That sux. I liked flickr

I hope flickr stays open. But if not, will need to find another service to roll over to.

Dr_Jon: It would also be interesting to see how much less it is in 1080p if you ever get a sec? But many thanks, it's just what I asked for (although may just be coincidence of course). Pity you're not still in London, you could try my patented (err,-ish) moire/aliasing test...

Global sensor and EVF/OVF combo.
Yup.
Canon, ya just need to do the right thing.
You had one job...
