How does this compare to... --- Too many people are comparing cameras to cameras, instead of comparing their photography with someone else's...

arhmatic: Imagine if all the pens sold had a camera... that would outnumber camera phones 10:1, just like smartphone outnumber actual cameras 10x:1

Imagine a world where a camera is a camera and a photographer is a photographer.

To be fair, many cars come with cameras. For rear view, for whatever sensors, etc... In a few years, this would be standard.

Let's throw those into the mix, just because...

I won't believe anyone telling me that a full frame mirrorless camera cannot fit in a Nikon F2 sized body! --- whatever styling they decide to go with.

Nikon, do it!

In reply to:

arhmatic: Apple --- Just put a larger sensor, a decent lens (yes, this thin device craziness has to stop!) a decent battery, and I'll buy it.

All the stuff you are coming up with, like fake bokeh, infrared and now 3D - makes no sense whatsoever. In fact, this is the number one reason I am not interested. It makes no sense to pay hundreds more for some gimmicks that I'd never use. Keep it simple and classy.

Of course then know what they are doing. Because they are doing it, not me.

But do they know what users really want? Past iphone releases proved the opposite.

marc petzold: I don't care about absolute sharpness at all, i do care more about "look", haptics & usability, also IQ about a lens. That's why i do love my old MF lenses, too. This is my lens i'd get this year. Suits the X-E1 perfectly as walk-around Lens, very versatile focal length. On other reviews, this XF 23 F2 WR had shown that it is capable of delivering "3D Pop" just like some old Zeiss Glass. A bit corner Softness at F2 wide open is expected, and ordinary. I do like this Lens very much.

Look and Haptics!
I never understood why sharpness is so important. Yes, it matters, but not a deal breaker. Haptics, on the other hand, do matter to me. I realize I am in minority, but we all have our own reasons. I still can't get over the conical shape. Not getting this... 18mm is my walk around, with the old 35mm second.

On article Canon debuts EOS M6 mirrorless with optional EVF (669 comments in total)

If this the top of the line canon Mirrorless? Not critiquing the camera itself, I just want to learn that the current flagship is, so I can compare it with my Pro-2.

While there, I suggest adding one item to the meeting agenda - limit camera naming to 2-3 characters. Typ, all.

@tommy --- we know, all letter mean something. But are they relevant? Or it's just brain clutter...

kewlguy: For $3,200 I'm sure there are better choices - ultimate or not.

Does not matter. enjoy your photography, whether your camera is worth 1 or 5k.

There is a certain advantage in limiting yourself to work with just one lens --- you are forced to go outside the comfort range to get the shot. In other words, you thinking... you are working for it... Better results overall.

gorllu: Ugly.

I agree. Not just this, but DSLR in general. Fat and bubbly.

But as always, "this is a tool, not a fashion statement" so let's slowly transition towards the brands of our choice. Definitely, not Canikon.
