nicchiaphoto: Is E mount dead?

Yes. And I quit smoking between every cigarett I take.

Miki Nemeth: No usb3, no touch screen, no GPS. No real ff 4k video. No way I'd pay $3000 for this.

Please Miki, educate us:
what do you mean with no real FF 4K video?

iudex: I know I am risking critisizm from A-mount fans (all 5 of them :-)), but in my opinion SLT cameras are a compromise combining disadvantages of both SLR (size and weight) and mirrorless (few lenses, EVF). It´s like homo neanderthalensis, a dead end of evolution sentenced to extinct sooner or later.

As for primes , I'd say most higher end ones have always been up there , able to resolve something in that neighborhood.
Actually, I think sensors should out resolve the lens, eliminating the need for AA filter completely.

Size and weight, perhaps, it does uses the same flange distance, so size will be bigger than the compact MLC's out there,
But it is not even close to the size of the bodies with built in vertical grip.

As for lenses, no one of the big points with building on the a-mount is the list of available lenses out there. And that all of these are stabilized.

A new serious a-mount camera!?
I have a hat to eat ...

Donnie G: My goodness! Everywhere I've looked today there are masses of trolls having panic attacks and throwing themselves off of their mirrorless bridges. Does this mean that the zombie apocalypse has finally arrived? Well, not to worry. It just means that Canon is about to hit another bases loaded sales home run with their new EOS M5 ILC, which means that this holiday shopping season is going to be awfully bleak for the competition, again. :))

Yes!
This one really kicked the Sony a6000 in the butt!!
Well, expect for fps rate, number of PDAF focuspoints, and shots per battery.
Not that that battery life would ever matter to DLSR user.

HenryDJP: For the base price point being the same as the Sony A6300 there's really no benefit to buying the Canon M5 since the Sony A6300 has 4K and the Canon M5 does not. Plus the M5 has no weather sealing and the Sony does. Although this camera should've been built with 4K recording in mind, had Canon built the M5 to use all of Canon's existing full frame lenses so existing Canon users (such as owners of a 5D Mark III) could simply switch lenses then the absence of 4K might not be such a thorn to deal with. At this point Canon is just saying, "We "have" a mirrorless camera, but if you want a BETTER mirrorless camera buy the Sony, since their cameras can adapt to our lenses".

This one is really correct:
"Much more affordable native lens lineup (example: UWA zoom is 1/2 the price of sony's and just as good IQ)"

Actually, you can by the whole Canon M lens lineup for a fraction of the money you need to buy the complete Sony E line up.
And it is easier to carry too.

aramgrg: Because studio scene is already here, some folks need to delete their accounts again, then open a new one. Maybe it's better not to express that strong statement and fight everyone about sensor performance as soon as the camera is announced?

What ????
It is of course much easier to argue before facts come around and spoils the debate!

In reply to:

Jonathan Brady: PEOPLE! Too many of you are making a big deal out of minor differences. Look... this is a comparison of camera sensors AND lenses as well as apertures. The comparison linked by DPR compares the following...
5D Mark IV with 85mm f/1.8 at f/5.6
5D Mark III with 85mm f/1.8 at f/7.1
Nikon D810 with 85mm f/1.8G at f/5.6
Sony A7RII with 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* at f/5.6

The Sony SHOULD be the sharpest of all of these. It has the highest resolution sensor, probably the sharpest lens (costing $1000), a lens that is literally decades newer than the one used on the Canon cameras (costing $370), and it's a wider angle lens meaning it's closer to the target.

Additionally, each sensor/lens combo is going to have areas of strengths and weaknesses. One combo may be better in one small area of the test scene while it's worse in others. THIS IS NORMAL and TO BE EXPECTED.

No need for chest thumping. Accept that there will be differences in performance AND interpretation.

The proposed lenses are all third party lenses ...
Why buy a body if the OEM lanses aren't up to the task?
Where did all that talk about 'investment in lenses' go?

Surely there must be a 50-100'ish mm macro lens that is up to the task.

In reply to:

kadardr: There is little difference between the FF sensors, or in other words the differences are not practical enough to make a purchase decision based on them. I am Nikonite so I say you can buy a grey market D810 AND a D750 for the price of one 5DMIV.

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=canon_eos5dmkiv&attr13_1=canon_eos5dmkiii&attr13_2=nikon_d810&attr13_3=sony_a7rii&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=100&attr16_2=100&attr16_3=100&attr171_3=off&normalization=full&widget=1&x=-0.5545073661946883&y=0.18688727622472248

The differences are there for sure. If it's a reason to buy a camera is up to anyone.

OK, this needs to be corrected! :(
Swap in the Phase One in that mix and it will turn out that the lines that are seen is actually going in the wrong direction!
I'd say Canon is better as it is not false to the same extent.

HenryDJP: At $3400 and no IBIS or articulating screen. Not worth it.

Bummer :) I made a quick look in the lens line up. but either missed some or it wasn't up to date. Not deliberate.
Anyways, I'd say that the remaining non stabilized primes is a pretty strong case for IBIS.

Only one prime lens with IS below 100 mm tells me that the proof is in the Canon lens catalogue.

In reply to:

Photomonkey: The dual pixel AF hints at the potential advantage Canon would have if it ever brings out a FF mirrorless camera.

Mirrorless would allow real time preview of the scene. Something an OVF will never do. Many of the issues in the wedding examples would be solved by a mirrorless camera even without a huge improvement in DR.

Not "would be" but instead - "is" .

Nobby2016: same guys who praise the GH4 crop mode video are now dissing the canon 4k video crop mode.

speaking about moronic fanboys and canon haters... lol.

your too cheap anyway to buy this camera... get a JOB! ;-)

Note that 2.0 crop factor comes from sensor format. The rest is additional crop for 4K. It is not 4K itself that crops 2.3x .
Both crop for the same reason: 1-on-1 mapping of input pixel to output pixels.
What' is left is the different pixel sizes.

So you are dissing the GH4 for providing the same 4K crop @$1500 for a few years now?
And you think this one is great because it costs more?

A quick count says that the pixel pitch differs some 20% at maximum.
( quick, means that it could be wrong as I haven't seen PP figures for this one)

Yes, the Chinese is the root of all evil. And no one there can do anything by themselves. All others are good.

"The #HuaweiP9's dual Leica cameras makes taking photos in low light conditions like this a pleasure"

The way I see it, they say that the picture wasn't taken by the P9.

Do anyone really think that all images in a camera brochures was always taken by the 'right' camera? Wake up and get off the cool-aid!
