travelshots_dpr: In Europe it is already on the market and also available (in stock) with Sony A-Mount.

Wonder if it will be able to match a99ii resolving power.

So...let me get this right...the a99II, which is superior in almost everything compared to the 5D Mk.4 (and cheaper too)...didn't manage to get in the short list but the 5D Mk.4 did??

How come Dpreview is doing a a6500 review first than the a99II?

loafer: DSLR are finished. The only advantage they have is price. And that means they are on the race to the bottom.

Really doubt it. Try to bring a Mirrorless camera to a country in armed conflict. If you're in the middle of gunfire at night, and you want to take a shot, the EVF will reveal your position even more compared to an OVF since the EVF is a light emitter.

You will get shot (no pun intended).

The same can be said about shooting in the middle of the african sabana, where you're required to be adapted to darkness to see where the hell you are walking... the EVF will prevent your eye to adapt to darkness. I can think of many other scenarios where mirrorless are out of place. DSLRs will stay here.

TwoMetreBill: Come on Sigma, it is time to stop making separate versions for each mount and build one base model and an adapter for each mount. All you are doing is raising your costs and lowering your customer base.

No thanks. These lenses are for SLR anyways. No need for adapters and Sigma already makes mount conversions.

In the past (80-90s), camera manufacturers would ship additional batteries besides the one that came with the camera, with a plastic cover. They should bring back this practice.

how do they compare to the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 and 50-100 F1.8?

What happened to the "one lens released for each camera body announced"?

a99II announced, not a single A-mount lens released. a6500 released, not a single E-mount lens released...

In reply to:

IR1234: Bit concerned about the comment that f2.8 gives a small depth of field - a rather basic misunderstanding for a professional photographer. At f2.8 on 14mm, you should have something like 4ft to infinity in focus. You don't get narrow depth of focus with wide angle lenses. So I'm unsure why two images needed stitching together.

Unless wind is an issue...

Quite sure the RX-series are the spiritual successor to the R1. While none of them has APS-C sensor, the spirit is there.

Well...it seems I will have to stop reading about Sigma news since they won't make those lenses available for Sony A-mount.

AbrasiveReducer: Camera companies go through periods of innovation, and they go through periods of stagnation. OTOH, electronics companies (Sony) are accustomed to constant product changes, and it shows.

I don't think Canon knows what to do with these cameras. Since they sell more SLRs than anyone else, they are probably not convinced an expensive small camera won't just cancel out sales of SLRs and more expensive lenses. They've done some things right, like pricing the M3 at $500 w/EVF in Asia to get users to buy the system, but their hearts just aren't in it.

I have most of the M lenses (not hard to accomplish) but the appeal was the low prices (let's see Fuji make an 11-22mm Image Stabilized for $400). But a $1000 body that looks just like a little SLR makes me wonder what the point is.

The Sony stuff I have tried has just not been as great as the fans say. Olympus' sensor seems to be too small. Fuji's mirrorless really delivers, but the lenses are too heavy for a small system.

Canon is waiting for SLR sales to decline, just enough to start releasing mirrorless equipment.

Canon is a very conservative company and not as volatile as Sony. Sony has brought tons of improvement so fast, that from this point, whatever they release will not bring big improvement aside from numbers. (Just like in the megapixel race).

Canon on the other had, brought like 3 generations of entry cameras with the same 18Mpx sensor with little improvement, and they got way more money than anyone else. They got a bigger return of investment.

Once they see they can't release anything else for SLR that can shake the market, they will take some of the money from SLR sales for R&D of mirrorless equipment and start from zero, but with plenty of products released at the same time. And they will sell plenty just because of brand recognition and support. And they will start slowly, but with strong steps.

Link | Posted on Sep 18, 2016 at 20:16 UTC

Canon doesn't want their SLR users to think that the company will soon jump the SLR ship for the mirrorless train. That could hurt a lot of the more conservative sales Canon has been keeping for a long time. I mean, does DPR staff know how expensive it is to start development and production of mirrorless lenses from the ground and what effect could it have on their user base if suddenly they start producing more and more stuff for mirrorless instead of SLR?

How cost effective it is to keep both SLR and Mirrorless lineup in the short, mid and long-term?

If they began making a lot of equipment available for mirrorless, a good amount of the money obtained from SLR sales would be redirected to mirrorless R&D. At one point, SLR sales would fall...what do you do with all the stock available world wide and manufacturing equipment for SLR cameras and lenses?

So, Canon will wait for the right moment to launch as many equipment at the same time but it will depend on the market situation.

In reply to:

Rooru S: Why it is more expensive than the Fullframe FE 28-135/4 PZ G OSS? I don't get it. Shouldn't it be at least priced the same or cheaper????

@Thermidor:
I said. ***FULLFRAME*** ***FE*** ***28-135***.

I'm not comparing the E 18-110/4 PZ G OSS vs E 18-105/4 PZ G OSS. I'm comparing this E 18-110/4 PZ G OSS against the FULLFRAME FE 28-135/4 PZ G OSS (another "cinematic" lens, but Fullframe).
