Hope so :)

@ Woke
Hope it's gonna be M6 II with IBIS. I like the camera quite a lot.

@LookintotheMirrorlessoften
I'm not one of those photographers who need all focal lengths at their disposal. Sigma lenses meet my needs pretty well, so an M6 with IBIS will be perfect for me.

SVCguy: Each finger of DPR's hand was way heavier on Nikon's MILC than Canon's.

I mean, they when straight to a significant differentiator... focus. Readers got the hard truth that Nikon's offering will have sub par AF when compared to market leaders. With Canon, DPR just focuses on ergonomics...com'on. Have you checked the IQ difference between Canon and Nikon...Nikon's is significantly better. How about weather sealing.

Com'on DPR you squeezed Nikon with one hand and tapped Canon with the other!

Maybe its AF is not as bad :)

helltormentor: Canon mirrorless system has a unique feature that it seems you've totally missed it!
EOS R is the only mirrorless system which offers pure PDAF. The rest use hybrid AF. In theory, EOS R should be able to focus lenses designed with PDAF in mind ( all DSLR lenses) as fast as a DSLR.
I think you should have written about this unique feature of Canon mirrorless system since we know that, up to now, the performance of adapted lenses on mirrorless cameras was just OK.
Even take a look at the "native" Art lenses for Sony. The AF performance is far from fast.

@ MILC man
"many adapted lens situations require you to choose between pdaf or cdaf, in the camera menu, but never both at the same time"
That's true but the performance is not satisfactory at all. I don't know about A9 but I wasn't happy with AF performance of my A7RII and Metabones IV. It wasn't as fast and accuracy left much to be desired. So, I decided to stick to my manual lenses and Sony's 28mm native lens.
I can talk about one Art lens (135mm F1.8) that I tried and the AF performance wasn't on a par with what I see when it's mounted on a DSLR.
Again my experience is with A7RII. A9 might be totally different.
That's why I'm very interested in what Canon has offered with regard to AF.

@ Richard Butler
Thanks for sending a signal to Nikon, I hope somebody there take pains to read some feedbacks before releasing the camera.
The issue is, apparently, Nikon didn't learn from others' mistakes, so they repeated them. Mirrorless cameras used to focus stopped down, then manufacturers realized the problems this naive move caused in low light situation or studio photography in which you might want to shoot stopped down but you need to focus wide open, so they gave users the option to turn live depth-of-field preview on/off in the menu. Apparently, Nikon hasn't done that, so Nikon is going to release a high res camera which is neither good for wildlife and sports( even the best mirrorless cameras cannot match the performance of DSLRs when it goes to fast action shooting at the moment) nor studio photography!

helltormentor: @ Carey Rose
Was there an option in the menu to turn off live depth-of-field preview? Almost all mirrorless cameras provide users with a turn on/off option. By turning this off, you can focus wide open regardless of the selected aperture.

Thanks for clarification.

helltormentor: Can aperture be controlled via camera using FTZ when Zeiss ZF.2 lenses are mounted?

In fact, it is equivalent to an AI-P Nikon lens.
It doesn't matter much now. Last night, I watched @ Rishi Sanyal video and realized that the the camera doesn't focus wide open! If the camera could focus wide open, I was ready to replace my A7RII with Z7. I know that it doesn't matter to many users as long as autofocus is fast but I just own Zeiss manual lenses. My issue with my A7RII is that I have to stop down before taking the shot, I thought Nikon would keep the traditional DSLR way of focusing. I hope they fix this in future at least for their own sake. Nikon is going to release a super fast manual lens for Z mount. Do they expect users to always focus it stopped down?!

helltormentor: Is it possible to add an H-Alpha filter in front of a telephoto lens equipped with UV, IR, and strong ND filters for solar prominence photography?

@tm8
Thank you very much for your reply. From your explanation, I infer that If I can mount a rejection filter and H-A filter in front of my telephoto lenses, the combo should work. Is that correct? So, if I eventually manage to mount these two folders in front of my lenses, I'm good to go, right?

@JPatrick
I know my telephoto lenses inside out but have no idea about scope optics. I much prefer to use filters and my lenses for solar prominence photography. Unfortunately, manufacturers are reluctant to give information on these "blocking filters" which are apparently necessary for safety. Lunt representative told me it's doable but he would recommend to buy one of their scopes! Since it's kinda a niche market, I have difficulty getting information on how these filters are supposed to work.

@ tm8
Thanks again for the link. I knew about this but I'm a bit reluctant to add filter at the back of the lens. It will miss with the focus. What's wrong with the ERF that you posted first. I thought an ERF + H-Alpha filter combo would work so I was trying to see if I could have them both in front of the lens.

What if I add an H-Alpha filter like this to the combo?
