In reply to:

HB1969: I wonder if the 42mm lens with the unusable focus ring is due to it being a prototype? Hopefully the final version will have a functional focus ring otherwise what's the point. It would be a point of annoyance rather than an aesthetic design element.

No, it won't. I asked directly the booth staff and they told me it's final design.

photophile: I wonder how long it took from the invention of digital imaging - to pointing the contraption at a cat! The two seem to be locked in an evolutionary vanity race - no sooner is a new camera announced, than the first cat to be pictured with it appears. I think its what keeping the imaging industry on its...paws.

Once I saw a cat-photographer portfolio on pentaxforums. She shot them with a Pentax 645D.
There is no exception:-)

I like how the old digital cameras tried to reinvent the wheel in terms of camera design - futuristic, as different from 35mm cameras as possible... only to settle for the same old "boring" camera-design later.
This at least looked and handled like a SLR, but they simply HAD TO put a futuristic lens barrel in there at least :-)

Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: What 'Pro' mean for this camera? Peace :)

It had features a pro would need to use a digital camera as a backup to his film SLR :-)

Halina123: Canon's latest attempt to match the Nikon 1 series. Which beat the $€£ t out of the M1 M2 M3 and M10, because the Nikons can actually focus in real time and get sharp images.

Hes not ded hes sleepin!
Right mom???

Sean65: I don't understand the pricing of the latest batch of mirrorless cameras. Sony 6300, Canon M5, Olympus PEN F etc.

These are selling at (nearly) double or 30% more than the price of cameras like the Nikon D7200/Canon 80D.

The weight saving advantages are diminishing and the lens lineup seems a bit handicapped, especially for the M5.

Nice cameras but the price seems way too high considering what else is on offer.

Milking the growing market. The prices will drop once the market is saturated. Just like it was with DSLRs.

"The EF-M 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS brings a 29-140mm equivalent zoom"
...the sensor magically goes biugger than fullframe with zooming. Good to see some real innovation from Canon!

PanchoVilla: I'd be crying if I were a Fuji X user. This seems to be the new APS-C mirrorless king!

How? The sensor is decent and the af probably good, but otherwise... meh.

cosinaphile: yes 12 mp spread across 15.5 sqmm sensor as a raw dng file ..... im frickin getting chills here .... should be groundbreaking and will clearly identify 2016 as a landmark year in the history of photography

RAW is allways a good idea. Even on tiny sensor, you can get better IQ than JPEG if carefully processed. Only be ready for some noise reduction!

Fírin! Best name for a lens since Prinz Galaxy!

Pick it up. Don't litter!

princecody: Raw is just stupid on a sensor this tiny!

No, its not stupid. I used RAW on Lumia 1520 and Galaxy S7 and with careful editing results are much better than OOC JPG.

Cameracist: OK, but you could have written very similar article about Microsoft Lumia :D

I originally wanted to write "except point 10.5" but left it out on purpose:)

Rexgig0: Anyone wondering whether to shoot their 5D IV in the rain really should see the detailed images and narrative on the LR site!

It is reassuring to see the sturdiness of the 5D IV. In light of the amount of empty space inside the camera, I am glad that the form factor has remained unchanged, in order to be able to seamlessly transition between camera bodies, when using a 5D IV alongside 5D III, 5Ds/R, and 7D I/II cameras.

Try sony

Should be even larger so I can seamlessly change between it and a Linhof Technika!

OK, but the question is...
...will it blend?

...or buy the original primoplan for a fraction of the cost.
It will only grow in price with time.
