I think the subscription model makes sense if it's your business but if not then, for me at least, it doesn't. However I can't knock Adobe for doing what makes them a profit. I could live without Photoshop but love LR,.

All the same I'll never subscribe, I just hate that payment model, so when LR becomes unworkable (probably when I buy my next computer which will no doubt have incompatible software i.e. MacOS 12 or something) then I'll learn one of the other programs I've already bought just to help fund them develop.

I wouldn't mind paying Adobe for perpetual licence upgrade but they don't want that so someone else will get it, but that's no skin off their noses.

It's just the way things go, no use grumbling about it, adapt and move on is my motto

Joed700: I'm glad I sold my version ii and got a good price on it. The 70-200mm f/2.8 has always been Canon's strongest. The price is right on the new lens compared to both Nikon and Sony's. I'm really hoping this new lens will bump up a couple notches on the resolving power against the 5Dsr.

the optical setup is the same as the old lens on the 2.8 so other than flare there'll be no changes in resolving power

Kashim: I love animals as much as anyone, but this idea that animals can claim ownership of copyright is ridiculous. What's next? Can they own real estate properties? Should we give them the right to vote?

if corporations have human rights why not animals?

photohounds: Smugmug isn't bad at all. It is much cheaper (if you value your time) than self-hosting and maintaining a web presence.

I switched to it because $12 per month represents a fraction of the value of the time needed to manually maintain a site.

Smugmug has unlimited storage and respects your privacy better than others I tried - including Flickr.

I have too little time, so I do this:
https://photohounds.smugmug.com/browse

the customer service at smugmug is outstanding so there's real hope for Flickr

olyham: I would question the appropriateness of this kind of promotional material on this website, It is pure mush with very little photographer relevant detail.

Having said that some of the comments submitted do provide interesting information about Canon so I guess it is stimulatory at best

stimulatory you say.......

paul simon king: can't see the point- looks so much like a dslr it might was well be one.

not o you maybe

Those of us that want a much smaller form factor than the DSLRs (esp FF) much prefer something along the M1/E3 lines

Link | Posted on Mar 28, 2018 at 17:24 UTC

I hope we don't end up laughing our socks off at their first 'offensive'

As much as I love Canon, they are going to have to pull a pretty big rabbit out of the hat to not still looking like they're playing catchup

I LOVE my DSLR, absolutely love it, and will always have one, but I'd like a mirrorless too for different tasks and for its small form and weight.

A mirrorless DSLR (effectively) is no interest to me me whatsoever. I really hope they do more than just take the mirror out of the camera (so to speak)

I have several Canon DSLRs. (not a Canon hater see?)
Canon also make teeny-tiny dslrs for newbies.

So if a Mirrorless would be of any interest to me it would have to be along the same lines as the Fuji X-E3, or at least have a size advantage over the current dslr offerings. It doesn't so I can't see the point
