So they "squeezed" a 300mm f4 into just 2.8lbs, the Nikon weighs less than 2lbs and the Canon 2.63lbs

rsn48: The flash lacks one option, unless I missed it in speed reading, and that is the ability to upgrade the software in the flash itself. So the Metz will never be obsolete even if Canon changes it software profile, it will be back engineered by Metz and released for download.

Phottix firmware can be updated

Johannes Zander: From their website and important for me:
•Cactus V6 does not transmit TTL information wirelessly

the ttl passthough is via a single unit on camera with the flash in the V6 hotshoe, at the same time you can use V6's as normal

Jogger: Its a bit weird to call this a "general-purpose zoom" esp. for FF users. I use my FF for specific tasks and use appropriate lenses for each task. Using a general purpose lens means you get less than optimal results and performance for whatever you are shooting.

For "general purpose" photography i just use my RX100/10 combo.

even more weird to think that a FF DSLR with 24-105 isn't suitable for "general purpose" use but an RX100 instead with less IQ and range of FL or to carry an RX100 and an RX10 is.

Cy Cheze: Is the full text of the GfK report available? Any break-out of the units and revenues attributed to each brand or model? Perhaps not.

I'd wonder if the fall in mirroless sales might also reflect displacement due to greater reliance on cellphone cameras, which are collectively the 400 lbs gorilla in the market, even if only bushbaby size each.

Will the alluded Fuji CSC be like the Q, the V1, or a less expensive m4/3?

You have to pay GFK for the full details
