Ying Yon: Great with options. The Zeiss Batis 135/2.8 and the GM 135/1.8 were already two very good and very different type of native 135mm lens options. Now this Samyang with large apperture, low weight and relatively low cost. Its good with options!

Hey Samyang, what about a version for Canon? We have no native RF 135 option! When will Canon ever get to catch up if 3rd parties dont step on it? Why should one mount have all the lens abundance and another mount no native option?

@BTN, true i have the EF 135 f/2L and it's fantastic. Id bet it's optically better and focuses faster than this Samyang and only cost me $600.

KAAMBIC: So what happens when the majority of remaining DSLR users jump to ML? Considering their DSLR lenses are still usable on their current brand's ML system, the ML pie is going to be changing very rapidly, with Canikon getting a huge bump in percentage.

And all this considering the R1 isn't even here yet.

@MyReality, i so wish they could make a DSLR that didn't have potential AF calibration needs. I live in a very humid climate for 7mo a year and that makes constant AF calibration a must. Before i was as well versed in ILCs i went through 3 D7000 bodies over a 4 year period bc the AF was so inconsistent.

For a while i thought it was a faulty lens, then the camera so i sold it. 2nd body later on same thing but i realized it was just a DSLR thing so i sold it. 3rd body a year later i convinced myself i could keep it calibrated and not hate it. I was wrong.

But boy do i miss an OVF and that battery life, if only they could figure out an AF design with AF sensors on the plane of the image sensor instead of being redirected by a mirror.

@CTMR, i hate to agree but i do about the Z7. I had a Z5 for a week and sent it off yesterday, the AF just wasn't that good. The eye AF was no better than on my Fujis and the lowlight AF was worse. The Z6/7 are the same AF performance as the 5, and the MK II versions are not much better aside from the wide area addition for face/eye AF. The Z9 is legit and it's every bit as good as the R3 and A1, but we shall see how willing Nikon is to trickle that tech down.

If they take too long for that i'd guess they will lose many ML converters to Canon ML. Sucks too bc i really liked the rest of the Z5, i prefer a tilting screen, i liked the grip, the EVF was fantastic, good sensor ect. Im just too big on AF to settle at this point, it literally was no better than my Fuji bodies in AF so not worth the cash.

KAAMBIC: I have bought and used multiple brands and systems, multiple times each. I have owned Sony SLT on two different occasions, Canon DSLR and ML 3 different occasions. My 9th Nikon body will arrive in the mail tomorrow, a string of purchases spread out over 9 years. Olympus 3 times. Panasonic 6 or so times. Pentax twice. Fuji 3 bodies in a row recently.

Of all those purchases, Sony and Pentax are the only ones that i gave a 2nd chance and was disappointed and never went back. Never will.

To share my own opinion just like you can.

I don't think we have to be one or the other.

Well i gave it a look, and i still wouldn't watch if you paid me. I think the US would be better off if football died off and completely faded away.

@Foskito, i love a lot about Pentax but that AF is horrendous. I had a K5IIs as my 2nd ever ILC, bought after my Sony A33. I loved the Pentax at the time, the IQ was way ahead of the competition for apsc, build was great ect. But back then i didn't know enough to see it's flaws. I knew CAF wasn't great but didn't know enough to compare it to all other brands.

Several years later i went back to Pentax for a K3 after hearing CAF was much improved. It wasn't. It was terrible. I don't even shoot sports, it couldn't keep up with my 3yo slowly walking in our yard. Multiple lenses, same result.

I know a lot of Pentaxians are landscapers ect so they don't care, but i want a camera more well rounded. If you name it CAF, i expect it to behave like CAF.

@tk, actually i don't waste much money at all, 80% of what i have bought was used and i usually end up selling near what i paid, maybe a slight loss. Cheaper than renting actually. I have actually made money before too, owned a Panasonic 3LCD camcorder years ago and paid $750. When it was DC'd i it became a cult classic used and when i sold it after a year, i sold it to Amazon for $800.

As for wasting time, i have learned TONS researching every system multiple times, which i wouldn't have done if i wasn't looking to buy stuff. I have had fun, i have learned much about all the brands, and i haven't lost much cash in the process.

The good guys, giving the bad guys endless ideas in the name of prevention. Here's some advice, if you want to prevent hacking fine, keep it quiet, don't give them any ideas, just quietly go about your angelic workday without telling the world about it. It's as bad as the stockpile of deadly viruses in the name of medical research, well look where we are now.

Does a real trojan already exist like this in the hands of the baddies? If it doesn't it will soon now. If it does, you just gave them a heads up.

Semper DSLR: Who was taking a movie camera around on wheels like an ancient Google Street View and getting no stares from passers by?

That first segment seems highly contrived; looks like a movie set.

To make things more confusing, when i first watched the 40s version, i got the feeling it was a production, rather than a random drive through town. There were some bystanders staring but look at the 1:10 mark, you see the guy walk out the store and then quickly move out of frame as if he was trying not to be on film.

Was somebody in the car waving him away? He was black and this was the 40s so maybe that's it? Anyway it was odd and caught my attention right away.

@onemoreguy, my grandmother lived on a Sioux reservation in California, i have a photo of her great grandfather, his wife and sister in law (the two women were French immigrants) hanging just above my screen now. This is the problem with people who do what you do, and make statements about people they have never met, you have no idea who you are talking to.

And to answer your question, of course they were wrong, they were not born here and had no right to settle the land. But we don't have a time machine so we have to deal with today's issues. If you were not born here you have no right to the land.

But yea, it is MY HOME, no irony in that.

Im curious, why is it looked down upon if one is against immigration? I mean why is it the default that a citizen of a country should be open to mass immigration? In the US for example, my country is an extension of my state, which is an extension of my city, of my neighborhood, which is an extension of my home.

Why should anybody be able to tell me where i should draw that line? The implication is im a bad person bc i might not want an immigrant moving to the USA. Am i also a bad person if i find somebody in need and i don't let them in my home?

There's a reason history is a thing, the identity of a people (of any color) is closely tied to the history of their nation. People should be allowed to protect that identity. Odd, i don't see many people criticizing Israel for having literal walls surrounding their land.

If you think it's wrong, here's your chance to tell Israel how you feel.

@onemore guy, im not sure i understand your post. I discussed behavior (like going potty in the streets), and you mention ethnicity but i fail to see how the two are connected. Are you saying only certain ethnicities are doing bad things that we complain about?

Ethnic demographics having nothing to do with this IMO, it's all about behavior. So unless you are saying only certain races behave certain ways, why bring race into it?

Stig Nygaard: I couldn't stop thinking that Jordan had lost the mic (Had fallen of his shirt and was laying next to him on the chair?)...

But besides that, I think the chip and supply crisis will prevent focus on lower-end but high quantity cameras. Focus will still be on high-end low quantity (but higher profit pr camera) camera models.

I believe/hope Canon will debut an APS-C camera for RF-mount. But it will be high-end. Maybe the "R7" I'm hoping for? ;-)
I also think that Canon will keep EF-M alive some more time. Probably not the original plan, but because they won't/can't introduce cheaper cameras for RF mount (fullframe or APS-C), they will postpone the death of EF-M.

The reason they hope for a removal of mech shutters is, the only way a brand would do that is if the E shutter was blazing fast like the Z9. The "feature" isn't the removal of the shutter, it's the improvement to E shutter speeds, to the point it can photograph everything without issue.

You might not call this a new feature but it's an improvement to an existing one and would be very welcome to most people.

just a few days ago i mentioned in a thread, about looking for my first WA prime, something fast to replace my adapted EF 18-55 for scenery work. I think we found a winner.

If they could implement an image enhancement mode by shooting all 3 cameras at once, that would be interesting. If nothing else, 3 separate perspectives should offer some accurate depth mapping.
