On article Canon EOS M5: What you need to know (548 comments in total)
In reply to:

aftab: I can't think of replacing my OVF cameras with mirrorless. I love OVF. The organic feel of it. The direction connection it creates with the subject. I know mirrorless has many advantages over DSLR. For me, it is the size. Exposure simulation would be the next one.
I have been thinking of getting a mirrorless to accompany my DSLR when travelling. It surely would be very helpful. M5 seems like a good candidate for it. I would love couple more pancake/small primes in addition to 22/f2. I don't want to lose the weight advantage.
I know many have gone mirrorless completely. They have accepted the fact that except for small primes good lens will be big and heavy, similar to DSLR lenses. I am not there yet. I am sure many are not.

Unlike you, I'm ready to move on. ;)

Dear Canon,
You see the buzz around your best mirrorless effort to date. Can you imagine the response to a full-blown full frame mirrorless effort by your engineers? You know they're equally excited and frustrated like all of your loyal Canon shooters by your holdup. It's time to unleash.

Pass. Crazy Crazy price for mediocre perfomance characteristics. This coming from a Zeiss fan.

PanchoVilla: This camera is enough to keep any Canon user in the Canon camp. No point getting ridiculous adapters for a Sony camera!

ttran88, No they sing Kumbaya. :P

Chris Yates: With its AA filter removed, super precision matte focusing screen added, BG-E4 battery grip installed, mine's still a potent daily workhorse with my Canon L primes and Zeiss ZE and Mamiya MF lenses. Still love it, and won't replace it until a mirrorless comes along.
I'm damn proud of it too kicking butts of younger guys with their latest and greatest.

Abrasive Red, it most certainly does. I have lots of CZ Contax and Mamiya lenses on the cheap too that produce phenomenal results with the 5D.

Daniel4: I can see no difference in the studio test scene at ISO 3200 between the EOS 5D models, except for the increased resolution which doesn't matter for screen-viewing.

My same sentiment

CameraLabTester: If and when the "Falling Reflex Mirror" gets fixed... This is a great camera.

The most affected are the tropical countries with high humidity. The glue deteriorates quickly. To Canon's credit, they will do the recall and Reflex Mirror correction for FREE.

.

I had mine fixed last year just before the freebie expired.

Aroart: To all the critics.. I sent this to my friends that shoot high end NY based weddings and they are supper impressed with the form factor.. They all want one asap... Yes, Edelkrone are usually pricey but they use very good material and have extremely innovative equipment.

Count me in for "supper" too. I'm sure I'll be super impressed with a free meal ;)

Things are going to be slow until the 5d mk iv comes out, so let's speed things up a bit by talking about The fastest man on earth.
Imagine waiting for the mirrorless.

In reply to:

Alexis D: Are we going to get a "What you need to know" article after every review of a camera by DPReview from now on?

Why is such info not included in the review itself? Already we have several articles for the same camera besides the main review, like Hands-On, Field Test, Real World Sample, and now another one?

Carey, it's got to be frustrating for the DPR crew. Damned if you do damned if you don't.

Nobby2016: why don´t you let a working professional, someone who has a real clue, write such articles?

get a canon pro sports photographer to write about his experience with the 1 DX II.... get a nikon pro sports photographer to write an article about the D5.

i doubt that you guys at DPreview, sitting at your desk most of the time, have as much experience with the cameras as they have.

Greg, I agree with you as well, also photojournalists on the street and in war zones, who risk life and limb to bring us the news we read.

Yes, especially about Canon cameras, until (or if ever) they release their first real mirrorrless. :P

Greg VDB, that's not really photography, that's spray and pray technique used by sport shooters.

An effort short and a minute late. Both Canon and Dpreview with their camera and review respectively. Tell us something we don't already know. :P

Chris Yates: I can enjoy watching a Kurosawa classic on VHS tape just fine. Although I appreciate better technology, what we need in better content and entertainment and a better society. Instead with 4K or 8K or 946 (or whatever the next K is) all we're going to get to watch nowadays is bloodshed in vivid detail.

Graybalanced, I was simply making conversation. of course VHS is not perfect today, but those were still great movies to watch on VHS, with a bunch of photojournalism friends interested in photography back when I was in college in 1980s. :)
