In reply to:

Tiefenunschärfe: No 4k - no buy.

Zdman: then what is their market? Many 500 dollars phones now do 4K. Many of them take adequate pictures. Sony phones even have image stabilization for both video and image, not intentionally crippled like this Canon. Why add this brick which doesn't really excel in anything? Canon was great on selling "big number" cameras to mass customers but they are losing behind at this rate.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: It's so tiring to hear for the 2000th time that if someone has the skills, any gear can be used to create great pictures blah blah blah. Saying this on this site simply shows how dumb and shallow you are, if not also insecure and defensive. This is a gear site. Tests and photos are not just to win competitions, although I have seen some nice ones too, but to provide product information. I would rather see the good as well as the bad samples, rather than carefully prepared shots by some ambassadors engaged to market particular products.

But we are hitting a wall in term of innovations wrt sensor quality, dynamics range and lens sharpness. 10 years ago it make sense to debate on this forum alone based on specs alone because every new iteration had a substantial improvement. Now new cameras change very little. Therefore it make more sense to look not simply at the gear quality alone but as a combination with photographer's skills to derive an educated conclusion.

cyberpi1: 25mm f1.2 lens for 1200$ for 2x crop sensor? Is that some kind of a joke? Ok, let's see...
Fuji 35mm 1.4 (1.5x crop) - 600$
Sony 55mm F1.8 (1x crop) - 900$

Yep... That's a joke.
Mushy ISO 1250 picture - yep, that why you should spend over 3200$. Go for it)

@Androole: Dont use fact up here as it is ineffective against these people. Let them have their glass chambers and save your mental capability to earn some bucks.

Nick Brundle - Photography: Absolute madness that this costs $6.595.00

Cost is dictated by the market, not by forum gear nerds like us. Many people buy it because it is like a symbol for their lifestyle, that's all about it. Many buy it because they just love it. Many people buy it as collectible. Many buy it just cause they can. We may feel the price is not justified based on our own preferences (me included), but right until the day when Leica go bankrupt, the price is right.

In reply to:

Kivivuori: Hmph,

"(....) M10 measuring just as thin as a film-era M4"

Not even close (M4: 33,5mm)

And just that`s why M4 feels much different - and better - in hand than M6TTL-models or any digital-M so far.

Man I can totally feel the 0.25mm difference you know.

In reply to:

Clint Dunn: 'Overdeveloped'....I guess that's what you do when you're committed to a M4/3 sensor and need to try and create value in a $2000 camera.

Or may be it is simply a flagship for the whole lineup just like the 1DX is for Canon? No one say 1DX has the best sensor in the world and it costs a ton but somehow no one complains yet. This is exactly the same. You can get all the other specs in lower-priced M43 cameras but if you want the speed you need to spend the cash.

livelong: Whoa!!!!!!! Is this, finally, a 5DIV killer?

Haha dont you see it? Pretty soon the only people who will pay grands and grands for cameras will be a small groups of people like those posting on this forum who have good technical knowledge and demand the best for their bucks. Tranditions and legacy lenses do not concern them at all. The next gen of ethusiastic photographers who have no previous lens invesements will look and choose the best "technical" lines to invest in. And I think most here would agree that Canon is not one of those brands at the moment doesnt matter how you slice it. I dont want to see Canon go down because there is no reason nor benefit for me, but if a ship is sinking and the people onboard deny that fact, it's purely delusional.

In reply to:

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

Pros dont even need to update much if you ask. The problem is not about not having IBIS, it is about not having nowhere near the comparable specs to a similarly priced camera a year ago. I think this is a problem that should be addressed by Canon immediately, not just hissed away by some here as "pros dont need it".

In reply to:

kingslayer: Canon needs to come out with a full frame mirrorless or they will end up like Blackberry.

So true, unlike other camera companies like Sony, Panasonic or Olympus which have other divisions to shoulder their tiny dwindling camera businesses, Canon's main cash cow so far has always been the camera division. Others can afford to lose much more and cut price to gain market share, not Canon. Its other business, printing, has been going south lately. If this trend continue, Canon will be dead meat.

http://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=canon_24_2p8_is&products=nikon_24_1p8g_ed&products=panasonic_12_1p4

Canon 24 2.8: 7 bladed - 11 elements in 9 groups - No sealing - Plastic construction - Heck, even the 24 1.4 only have 8 blades - 13 elements in 10 groups

Nikon 24 1.8: 7 bladed - 12 elements in 9 groups - No sealing - Plastic construction

Nikon 24 2.8: 1990s lenses - 7 bladed - 9 elements in 9 groups (no ED or any special element, questionable coating compared to modern lense) - No sealing - Plastic construction

Panasonic 12: 9 bladed - 15 elements in 12 groups - Weather sealing - All metal construction

Ah let me throw this in as well. Panasonic gives you a metal hood.

Any objection here?

Is the 24 ais a great lens in 1970s, yes, in 2016? No. Old construction, old elements, old coatings, old AF (haha I mean no but yeah let say old). I used to use Ais on MFT with 50 1.4 being my fav so I know those lenses.

Lol Too expensive? What is cheap then?

First, this lens is brand new and the price is MSRP with lot of room for further discounts. All other lenses are already out for a much long time and therefore more likely to recoup all the fixed costs which means cheaper prices. Second, this lens is a special one within MFT lineup just as 24 1.4 is a special lens in Canon and Nikon lineup. Panasonic knows they not gonna ship a lot of this lens, hence they have to put a much higher price than the Olympus 12 f2. It is a similar supply and demand phenomena for all niche products, why everyone think this case is different? Third, refer to the spec sheets, it is clearly the most sophisticated one here, do you think that come without any R&D? In addition, the Nikon 1.8 does not have IS, this one has IS. This lenses may be 100-150 dollars off the correct mark but definitely not too expensive.

bluevellet: It begins. The moment M mount turns the tide and becomes the only relevant mirrorless system left in the market.

Your grand children will look at you incredulously as you tell them Olympus made more than endoscopes back in the day or that Sony also had cameras in its repertoire of products with poor quality control way back then. You will tell them you were there when it all changed and it started with an affordable macro lens and ushered a Canon-only future.

Remember this day.

Haha look like I just destroy another nonsense loser here - arbux.

Canon :), what does Canon have? A office division (50%) which focuses greatly on printer, a clearly mature product which will be obsolete with the increasing use of computer/tablets/phones... Imaging division (35%) is facing headwinds as we all know and reflected in the numbers here. The Industry (15%) division which have some neat products like Semiconductor lithography equipment is the only thing that keeps the growth at Canon. But looking at the R&D spending decrease and you have to ask yourself if Canon can sustain the growth and competitive edge while cut R&D?

So yes, I do believe that Olympus and Sony have much more chance to survive 20 years from now.

I am awaiting your response arbux as I have looked at the numbers and written these responses. Have you?
