Dames01: "Unfortunately, the ring around the lens barrel of the DL24-85 is not customizable (same goes for the other DL's). It can only be used for manual focusing."

That is really disappointing... :-( would have been nice to be able to use to set the Aperture, Shutter speed, etc.

@otzurert: as stated in the product announcement "Macro shooters can also take advantage of focus peaking and bracketing as well as manual priority AF."

@papa natas: I think you have misunderstood my comment.

AF is a wonderful thing, and the only time I use MF is for macro work, which is why I think it is a shame that the ring on the lens cannot be assigned to another function, depending on the shooting mode, or customised by the user like on the Canon GX series.

Love the design... very Canon like :-) but more polished, and the specs tick a lot of boxes too.

Nice to be able to add an external EVF.

Looking forward to see some image samples.

Vincent DP: When I look at this picture I see people illegally crossing a state border (there is no war in Serbia or Hungary, so no need to flee through barbed wire) and endangering the health of a baby, part of a mass invasion jeopardizing the future of Europe.

It is narrow minded people like Vincent DP who are jeopardising the future of Europe.

SupremeWideAngle: Canon did a very big mistake to bottom-hinged the monitor, useless for macro and many other photography situations !!! Try again Canon, you are on your way down !

The tilt options are: 180° up and 45° down. So in fact there are two hinges, like the screen on the G1X mkII.

So the screen is macro, concert and selfie friendly :-)

uzzy88: What about G1x Mark II?

Great camera, but the RAW shooting rate is a bit low and focus is also sometimes diffidult in poor lighting conditions. It is also frustrating that the remote shooting do not allow the user to select the focus point remotely.

If Canon puts these improvements into the G1X mk III, it will be the best walkaround camera...

lensberg: Why couldn't they include 4K ... ??!! They introduce Digic 7 to the world in this cheesy camera... and leave out one crucial element that could potentially tip the scales in their favor...

Best to stick with Sony's RX100 series in this segment... Great IQ (with mark IV ) and outstanding video specs... They're always on top of their game here...

They didn't include 4K video because people are buying their cameras even though they don't have 4K video!

On article 1.4 and More: Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II comparison (243 comments in total)

There is no doubt that the new Canon lens is better optically than its predecessor or the sigma lens. As to whether the difference will be significant to 99% of the people who use a 35mm lens... Of course NOT! But this is irrelevant. It is aimed at those who care about getting the sharpest results at any aperture.

Because as a joke it's fairly creative.

No it's not... it is ART!

LOL

A wonderful way to show how sad and utterly pointless selfies are...

Art at ist best.... but lost on most people.

Priceless !

StevenE: What a con job Canon did on us in North America. Offer nice little lenses, and withhold a decent camera to use them. I bought the lenses ONLY thinking there was a decent camera body coming some day. I'll never trust Canon like that again. Now I'm stuck with one of the worst camera bodies I have ever used if I want to make use of those lenses.
Bad Taste In mouth ... must reach for SONY

And Sony is famous for the range of lenses they have... ;-)

Need a screen that points downwards? just turn the camera upside down to take shots above you...
