Dante Birchen: Hey what about the white and silver versions!

Oh! ok. I did not know that.
But they don't have yellow, purple, violet, lilac... like the Pentax K-50.

They lag so much behind Pentax!

JOrmsby: 98% VF coverage on a $2000 full frame camera in 2017? What a joke. Because all of us enthusiast photographers love guessing what's actually going to appear in our final image.

And the new 200D only has 95% 0.54x VF and is a APS-C camera. That is just a tiny keyhole.

thx1138: Yikes screen dots 104000, that's an order of magnitude error dpreview

Ok even if you don't want to shoot 4K, here's why Canon must offer it; their 1080p is the second worst on the market, only Pentax is worse for video quality. The pixel binning Canon do results in about actual res of 700-750p, it's mushy crap. The only way to get good 1080p from Canon is to resample 4K. To think that adding 4K to this camera would impact on 5D4 is ludicrous. Why offer DPAF which makes video shooting so much nicer, when the video quality blows chunks.

Rest of the camera is as expected, I always said it would use 80D AF, would only have 1 SD slot and still stick to the pathetic UHS-1 standard. The worst gripe other than no 4K, no 1/8000 shutter and still USB 2. I can only imagine that Texas instruments if they are the ones still making digic for Canon are incapable of incorporating it in their chip. Given they can't offer good video codecs either, Canon needs to look elsewhere IMO.

Hm, since it becomes common to count every subpixel on camera displays in opposite to computer screens, 104000 would be rather low. If it's 1040000, that would be 346667 real pixel, a little bit more than the number of pixels in a 640x480 VGA-display.

Honestly: What is so expensive at a second dial? Almost every manufacturer of cameras distinguishes the lower and the higher priced models thrue the presence of a second dial. They must be very complicated and expensive to implement.
And secondly: 95% - 0.54x Viewfinder? That is not very desireable.
For the rest: It looks very tempting, at least on paper.

That is right. Lenses go better and better, but also more and more heavy and expensive.

trungtran: When i buy water i just grab the cheapest bottle. I don't bother with Evian, Fuji or whatever brand that is made half way across the world.

Interesting experiment, maybe someday in the future we can have these organic lenses, small and can be shaped for different focal lengths.

I just drink tap water. No need to buy water in bottles, at least in a region where there is a descent supply system and good water quality, like germany of france.

On the other hand, those where lenses with nine lenses and this lens has 14. You get much more glass for the money.

The old Distagon T* 1,4/35 mm for Contax weights 600g, the half.

PieterB: I just wonder if you could a tablet as external screen.

With USB 3.1 it is possible to route displayport over USB. That would be a viable way to do it.

But it would need hdmi input, even if it is not as a standard socket.

A Tablet with HDMI input?

I have 1200px verticaly for years now. No way to get back to 1080.
Btw., does it have a pivot function?

Johan Huang: Aha.. My first digital compact camera. Served its duty well. Still have it somewhere in my closet since my dry cabinet is packed with newer toy.

My first digital too. Still have it, still ready to use. Pictures taken with that camera still look good today. ISO is usable at the base value of 50 only.
I learned to love love the tiltable screen wich is really handy many situations, although it is very tiny. (And it is suitabel for selfies.) Shutter lag feels like a minute or so.

dbateman: With a name like Nikon Miami, I guess he is not going to be using an Olympus or Panasonic camera. But that D4 setup with 800mm lens just looks like an ad for the Panasonic GH5 with the Olympus 300mm with Tc converter. The 6k photo mode and olympus lens combo would just be so light, cheaper, faster (to move around) and fun to use. However you would not nearly get as many stares from the old men in the golf carts.

Isn't it a D810?

That is only 13.6 kg. Still fine for the average female.
