IMHO if some is one going to keep speaking there is no point of making a video.

I have bought Nokia 5, it's a best purchase I've made in my entire life. Good battery life, good price, immediate security patch update, vanilla Android, Android p promised and now Oreo 8.1. only downside is camera is not good. You know what I don't care.

In reply to:

RubberDials: So let me get this straight, 'rumors of a Canon mirrorless full-frame camera are heating up' and a couple of 'good sources' have confirmed that 'a full-frame mirrorless Canon is indeed being tested by select pros'.

But there isn't a single spec known? What kind of rumour is that?

If 'select pros' are using it then presumably it has a lens on it. So how come the mount isn't known? If it used EF mount that would be the first thing leaked. It would cause an immediate spike in lens sales.

Sorry a rumour about a camera without a single leaked spec sounds like it came straight from Canon's marketing department. An obvious attempt to pre-empt users jumping on the A7III.

Aptly written comment

The only chance of making difference is having it with EF mount so you can use huge collection of lenses. But they are also talking about cannibalizing DSLR. So they are going to make EF lenses in future without making DSLRs?

Too much confusion.

thx1138: So lazy Sigma, just plonking the MC-11 on the lens and calling it a day.

Because of the Flange focal distance any way the lens will be long

ms18: Not interested. Release a fast (<=1.4) APS-c ONLY dedicated prime between 55 to 60mm.

I'm looking to switch mirror less. That's why still using 550d

Using FE lenses on APS-C is waste . because even when switching to full frame I will get wide focal length which I'm not used to. We learn lenses not the bodies. Full frame lenses can be used in APS-C but they aren't specifically made for it.

No manufacture who own full frame never release good lens for APS-C. Only fuji does because they don't have full frame.

You know what. There are many advantages of removable storage than some thing that's built in.

ms18: Lens selection is very crucial aspect in type of photography. I would first go through the lens selection then look at a a capable body with that mount. If the have good lens they will definitely have good body.

@Sai1
It's not same for every one. for example I don't use zoom lenses. Some system might have good zoom but bad primes. my advice is to guess your imaginary lenses see who have them? At least with some compromise. I use B&H website to see the lens options. (Any way i can't buy from b&H as I'm from Sri Lanka)

Except Fuji many APS-C cameras don't have good lens selection. Sports and wildlife are exceptional cases where APS-C shines. If I'm to choose APS-C I will go with Fuji. Most FF have good lenses.

@chickenballs
That's right. but i advice to check the lenses (Even adopted ones) before choosing body.

ms18: I wish Sigma or Tamron will make a 55-60 mm f/1.2 PRIME lens so I can buy a Sony A6xxx peacefully. There is a samyang 50mm f/1.2 It's a great lens but 75mm equivalence is bit short for my taste.

I would also like a cheap 24mm f/1.4. Sony's zeiss is expensive and not so great wide open. Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is bit narrow. I would like two primes 35-40mm f/1.4 and 80-90mm f/1.2 to use APS-C. Both should be sharp wide open

Yes. But some one who want mirror less instead of DSLR fuji is really worth the price. I prefer EVF over OVF.

ms18: I'm wondering why a7R iii is getting released prior to a7 iii?
Btw I'm waiting for more price reduction on a7 ii.

But will they release a7 iii?
will That be most likely to have lower price point that a7R iii ?

It's good news for me because a7 iii will have even better features with less resolution. I don't need more than 18MP.

In reply to:

PhotoCGI: Sony executives most be colour blind. They try and try to produce the best "technical" camera but continue not paying attention to the widely acknowledged fact they have the worst colours of any camera. (not to mention their automatic while balance is crappy too).
Its a real shame because they do produce amazing cameras but when you compare their colours with Nikon, Canon, Olympus and Fuji..well, you get a big dissapointment.
They don't learn, unfortunately. Have they ever wonder why Apple and others pay so much attention to the colour of the photos on their mobile devices and the quality of the screen on which we see them?
Yep. First impression do count. That's why many leave Sony and return to Nikon, Fuji or whatever when they realise their Sony camera may be "technically perfect or close to it" but results are simply not appealing.

WHY YOU NO SHOOT RAW?

CameraTolerantGuy: What' the reason to buy this instead of the a6000 + 10-60 PZ?
F2.8 vs. 3.5 and a touchscreen?
Yay.

I believe only reason can be one's own stupidity.
