"Lensrentals’ data also shows that RF mount lenses rent at eight times the rate of Nikon Z mount lenses"

Um, no. Canon RF = 5.66% and Nikon Z = 1.36%. That is approximately 4 times. Sloppy work DPR.

And again for perspective, Canon released (and were available) both the R5/R6 in 2020. So, not so "staggering".

Folks here need to learn how to read and process information accurately rather than relying on their biases/fanboyism/fangirlism. These numbers include both photography and cinema related gear - combined. The video gear makes up half the numbers too. Of course, as expected, Canon will end up at the top, Sony in the middle, and Nikon (with no real dedicated video presence) will end up on the lower end of the spectrum. The one table that correlates (maybe, and a stretch at that) to the photography market is the Photo Lenses rentals. And again, that shows Canon leading Nikon by a 2 to 1 margin - same as their current market share. Also, not surprising that the company with over 40% market share would populate most of the top 20 gear rentals. Nothing of photography related value here.

LMOE: Conclusion-

If priority is:
Video = Panasonic
Stills = Nikon
Both = Canon (and it will cost additional to get it)

Sony = why even bother or wait to release this video until after A7IV is released.

@pantherfan I totally agree. Add in lens ecosystem and the whole ballgame changes.

fPrime: If you wanted to build a mirrorless ecosystem that was average at everything and class-leading at nothing (except perhaps having the lowest price), then this would be the perfect lens for that system. Equally cheap, equally slow, and equally unremarkable.

fPrime only looks at date of manufacture when evaluating equipment. If it’s after 1989, it automatically sucks. Before that was the golden age of innovation.

wats0n: Nice zoom range, but man Nikon colors are pretty horrid.

Just crank up the red slider and you have Canon color or the yellow slider and you have Sony color. Voila!

In reply to:

troppe: Better quality than X-T2. Bayer photos also look a way cleaner against X-Trans.

Be careful. You are comparing this camera to a camera (X-T2) that goes back two generations now. The X-T3 and X-T4 use a new sensor with improved image quality. I sold my X-T2 because I was not happy with the IQ (my own preference) but love the X-T3 and X-Pro3 IQ. In fact, the X-Pro3 design is a major PITA but I keep it because of the results.

GrapeJam: Film photography has seen a recent revival, now its up to film manufacturers to not kill it with ridiculous pricing.

Or more likely that there really is no significant growth potential - just wishful thinking.

The fact that a "development" announcement causes such a commotion is an indictment of how weak the current offerings are.

cosmicnode: One page, is this the entire review?

The original DPR preview and samples published when the camera was released were more informative.

Any camera reviewed 18 months after release will generate zero interest. Why did they even bother? That's 10 minutes they will never get back.

To those that have a sense of humor..

In reply to:

zerlings: It is now very clear that it is the compactness and usability that made them to be Gear of the Year (i.e. G5xiii, Sigma 45mm, iPhone 11, Ricoh GR3). They don't need to have the best spec or IQ but they are all pleasant to use. The human factor, afterall, is the most important.

Yes. I think that is where we are at now. All cameras are good enough. It is the feel/user experience that is the deciding factor.

In reply to:

panther fan: What we all want is a comparison vs the Samyang 45mm F1.8

The Samyang is:
-Lighter
-Faster at F1.8
-Smaller
-Cheaper
-Sharper

The Sigma
-Has an aperture ring
-Higher max magnification
-Better build

You could at least mention it as the other obvious lens in the E-mount system at that focal length. And if you want to provide us with useful buying guides/information a lot more comparison would be nice :) Blogpost about single lenses are ubiquitous on the internet. Comparisons are missing

This is a favorite piece of gear article, not a comparative analysis. That has been made very clear. Odd comment.

Odd mission. To create all kinds of discontent and animosity on your current customers.

De Fotoman: Fuji made some bold choices which led to an even more specialized product.
As camera gear enthusiasts we should applaud Fuji for this, whether we like this camera or not.

Oh, they are standing out alright. For all of the wrong reasons.

Thanks, Canon!

Glad you have your priorities straight. The faithful have been absolutely screaming for this.
