In reply to:

Fun 4 all: This camera weight 11% MORE than a Rebel SL1 and only 2% less than a D3400. And it relies on too many large and expensive FE lenses.
The only F/2.8 zooms cost over $2200 and are monsters. Consider the difference between them and Micro43 F/2.8 zooms is only .7 stops -which is close to negligible- and the Sony zooms are double to triple in size and price.

Are you comparing this one with the SL1?

Eleson: Where are the pictures of a dog catching a frisbee in mid-air?

I'm fairly sure that most got the point that the gallery was totally lacking any kind of moving subjects.
So in this gallery there no evidence or examples that the camera can actually capture a a moving subject.
And the inherently raised question was of course if the AF was up to par.

DPR must have been really unlucky if they ran out of all possible moving targets.

tom1234567: I don't think there will be a great demand for this camera
there are plenty FF cameras that are better more affordable than this 99

Tom G

Count me in as well!
I'd also like to see the list of 12fps cameras producing 42MP images, with full AF and AE tracking while doing that.
Oh, if they also stabilize your old precious primes while doing that, please let me know.

Nobby2016: WOW... nikon really needs the money it seems.

this new 70-200mm is 900$ more expensive than the very good canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS II.

should nikon not try to attract new customers in a shrinking market?
instead they scare away old ones.

But the Canon is only very good.
This is a systems business in a shrinking market.

Prairie Pal: Clearly an upgrade meant to drive as many customers as possible to the 5xxx series

Almost noone in this category update to a successor in the same segment.
These are as cheap as they get to make people use something else than a phone.

Schwingi MD: The Sony guys are the worst. Sure their tech is awesome but a little more then 6 months after the 6300 release another upgrade?! Come on! I would be pi**ed if I had just bought a A6300...

If you want a safe distance from that , buy Canon.

Ok, You are based in Seattle, and it rains a lot there.
But I still think it should be 'down' instead of 'up'. :)

"and making it possible to use the camera up to 40m underwater"

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.

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!

On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV added to studio scene comparison (363 comments in total)
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.
