Would like to see review of the remote, it certainly look interesting.

@Alphaloki: fair enough, safety first. I shoot snakes(both venomous and non-venomous) with 100mm macro or even 60mm macro. Only snake that scares the living hell out of me is the Russell's viper and for that one I prefer to use 500mm lens.

Pitchertaker: Gee, should I get the new 30mm f/3.5 macro or stay with the 60mm f/2.8 macro I was originally going to get?

Depends on what you want to shoot, if its butterflies and venomous snakes(depends on how well you the behaviour of animal) you need longer focal length macros(150/180/200mm). For product and flowers you can get away with shorter macros(50/60/70mm). 90/100/105mm lenses generally offer a good compromise between the longer and shorter macros.

That 500mm lens is significantly cheaper than Canon's offering, I want to see some samples as that lens is quite "affordable" for shooting raptors.

Thats interesting development. Depending on lenses available this might end up being landscape shooters dream camera.

Finally a non-fisheye lens on an action camera.

This is a nice surprise to A mount users who were left out in cold in recent years.

Not what I was expecting the Fz1000 successor to be. Only good feature seems to be direct access to ND filters via a switch on lens barrel.

If the price would have been 100-150$ less, this camera with 80D sensor would have been a great camera. Now I will wait for the price to drop before considering M5.

OLED display would have been more useful for low light situations.

Would like to see it in action, theory sounds good but implementation is going to be important.

Interesting offerings.

Sony seems to be going wrong way with phones in last couple of releases, they are overpricing their devices for mediocre specs are best. I dont think €449 is "affordable" for a Snapdragon 650 based device by any stretch of imagination. No wonder Sony is losing money and market share faster than a constipated kid.

I wonder how this compares to the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6

I have been seeing a lot of Nikon shooters use that lens for birding. I would like to know if any optical improvements has been made in this lens or its just an electronic update to their old design.

Chaitanya S: extending barrel- dont understand why everyone except Nikon keeps using that old focusing design.

@brendon1000: I was referring to Nikon's AF-S 60mm f/2.8 Micro lens. thats a full frame 60mm lens with internal focus, weather sealing and silent focusing motor. It's unique as it's the only lens to offer those features in its class.

@Contra Mundum: I used to own Sigma 50mm f/2.8 Macro that used extending barrel design for focus. And due to to shorter focal length and extending barrel lighting the subject even at .5x Mag ratio was difficult as the barrel always got in the way. IF designs a little better in that aspect but still shorter focal lengths compared to longer lenses in terms of lighting.

Chaitanya S: Essentially a bad hybrid of Camranger and eyefi.

1DX Mk II doesnt come with wifi its $600 optional extra, so that camera can use it (via a SD to CF adaptor). also to a certain extent maybe users of 5d Mk III and 1Dx might have already settled for Camranger of Eye fi so those cameras are not worth investing resources in.
