People make purchasing decisions on what product are offered, not cheap talk. Stop waffling Canon and put out a great FF mirrorless camera.

kobakokh: good news, now sport photographers will use Sony system more often. This is not for ordinary photographers, very special lens. How much is it?

If you need to ask, you cannot afford it.

Lots and lots, all big glass is.

Joseph K Boston: 93% EVF coverage?

Come on.

You do know that is 93% AF points coverage over the sensor?

Mssimo: Sony is claiming 15 stops DR!

I have seen 14DR in main presentation, then 15 from Sony X. Time will tell which is correct.

Sony puts out the A9, then the A7RII and now the A7III.

Canon brings out M50, 2000D and 4000D.

How the mighty have fallen. Still asleep at the wheel.

At least Nikon has a fantastic camera in the D850.

On article Canon introduces EOS Rebel T7 with updated 24MP sensor (107 comments in total)

Another boring uninspiring Canon offering. Maybe the flash designers need to transfer across to camera bodies. At there will be some innovation.

It sure helps to idiot proof flash usage. However, the flash is underpowered for wedding use where I see it could be a great time saver.

The third photo is also more pleasing because the model is smiling. The model does not smile in the two first photographs. If you’re testing a flash, can I urge you use the same methodology, otherwise it looks like one of those cheesy promos on TV, with the product makes the model smile!

Wow that is boring.

At least the 470EX Ai flash showed some innovation.

Upgrade offer is a smart move, keeping loyal users on side. That is one very attractive package no one saw coming.

alextardif: "Canon has long experience of designing tilt-shift primes and everything from build quality to the feel of the zoom rings oozes quality."... you meant to say "focus ring", right?

btw... as a Sony user, these are the only lenses I'm envious of in the Canon system, they look lovely despite such a hefty price tag!

I use my Canon 24mm TSE and 45mm TSe all the time on my Canon Sony A7R. A TSE lens is manual, so you lose nothing using it on a the Sony.

Better photos with that combo than using a Canon body.

Cian3307: I've never used tilt&shift lenses, and probably never will, so here's a question coming from some one completely ignorant on the subject; does focus stacking make these lenses largely redundant for product photography?

No, as focus stacking requires multiple images. A TS lens gets all the DOF in one image, if set it up correctly. Focus stacking works best with little or no movement between images, not so with a TS lens.

More work to get DOF with a stack than a TS lens. You can see the result with the TS lens in camera or when tethered.

Focus stacking does not give you stitched images, like you get when shifting a TS lens.

Less of an issue for product work, but a TS lens, when used properly, deals with the Keystone Effect.

Anadrol: Does the multi shot pixel shift system NEED to use a tripod ?

Probably yes, you need a tripod for the Pentax version.

Goodbye Lightroom. I saw this coming with the introduction of the subscription model.

Despite Adobe telling us that the Standalone, pay once software would continue, they did not even put out another version!

Lets see, DxO had the test results and put them in the database, but held off until a full review. Which never arrived, so the 645Z was scrapped from the database. I do not recall a need for a full review for other cameras before going into the database.

They know the 645Z scored 101 but claim the D850 is the first to get a score of 100. DxO have a real credibility problem and the excuse now being peddled, well sounds like an excuse!

Maybe the first 35mm DSLR, but not the first camera. The Pentax 645Z scored 101. But DxO played games about publishing the results. Here is a screen capture of the score: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3942644

beavertown: Canon did it again, no wonder this company will always be more successful than Nikon.

It does not take much to get you excited. A nice 85mm, 3 specialist lens and an over priced macro flash.

princecody: Just find it ironic you guys have TS using a $10k macro setup to take photos when he has always said in all his macro videos on YouTube equipment is secondary ☺️ The hypocrisy here is #EpicBro ☺️

What a cynical attitude. He was offered the use of the Fuji MF camera for the day by DPReview. Why on Earth would he say no? I bet he is now back to using his normal setup.

No black-out, unlike DSLR.
