PRe-ordered!!! Most exciting camera in years for me!!
Not everyone want to shuffle multiple lens with DSLR and mirrorless.
And I am sure the FZ1000 lens will run circles around a DSLR superzoom lens.

ACR is still a blurry mess compare to OOC JPGs.

"Accurate enough for most purposes" does really inspire confidence. That also implies that you are unlikely to get the most of your lens. The PDAF will only be good enough if you don't look closely...

That is one thing that really keep me some current SLR. These PDAF sensors are simply not enough to keep out with high resolution main sensor. If I am not shooting action, I pick CDAF over PDAF any day.

Eigenmeat: 12.8MP at 2014 is a bit of let down at 2014 to be honest. Especially with a sensor this large and lens this fast(less diffraction prone). Sony can squeeze fully usable 20MP 1'' sensor on its RX100/RX10 series (especially the RX10). No reason Cannon cannot squeeze a good 16-18MP on a 1.5'' sensor.

To NowHearThis:
I fully agree with you that today's main stream diplay media can rarely show more than 8MP. Peronsally, I don't print much of my image. For me, much of the fun is to zoom into images to discover all the little details you missed on a busy trip! For that, you need all the MP count you can get.

To R Butler:

Yup, it seems Canon completely recycled the old sensor from G1X M1. Now the lens has a smaller image circle, so we get multi-aspect shooting. The down side, we went from 14.1 MP to 13MP.

We now just a body with EVF/CDAF to attach this onto(I don't shoot action)... PDAF suck for accuracy, and sucks even more with a superzoom lens. When properly focused, this super lens can be quite sharp.

Sony/Samsung can make a cell phone do this. Yet, for example, a $1300 Sony RX10 cannot it. It just shows how much manufacturer intentionally cripple their camera line to create "product tiers".

racketman: Can't help thinking there is a market for a 100D sized camera with a RX100 sized sensor and a fixed superzoom lens, just not sure how long that zoom could be, 24-600?

What you said is without reason. A 24-600mm with 1'' sensor is more than enough to satisfy the needs of 75%+ of the enthusiast sector as walk around cam. To complete mix, all you need is a cheap mirrorless with a portrait lens.

been dreaming about that camera since 2 year ago =(. The RX10 came close though.

Nvm you are correct, i guess you don't get any kit discount on this one =)

I doubt the body only will be $800. That lens retails at 600 brand new. They have to a atleast give you SOME discount when buying kit right? I am guess body only will be ~$1000.

Does this has AF fine tune?

I think 24-600 F2.8 to F5.6 will be alot more interesting...

On article Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Review (348 comments in total)

I think DPR is being really unfair on the focus issue about this lens.

This Canon 19-point AF module(used in 7D and 70D) is not really known for its extreme accuracy. The same can be said for the rest of the Canon APS-C AF modules. Lensrentals did a excellent test on Canon bodies, and it can be read here:
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/08/autofocus-reality-part-3b-canon-cameras
In the test, they are using the 28mm f/2.8 IS, which is less demanding then this sigma, and still get very inconsistent AF results.

I highly suggest DPR do the same AF "evaluation" with a fast prime on the same body and tell us how consistent the result is. I suspect that those fast primes are so soft at F1.8 that it's hard tell slight focus consistency.

The reality is that current PDAF sensors simply does not have resolution to satisfy ever higher pixel count main sensor. With CDAF, this lens will be sensational.
