Beautiful gallery but bulky lens. Hopefully smartphone can do its computation magic like this some day.

I like this idea and it does enhance the shooting experience with a phone. However, I'd wait until it is a mature product.. meaning it have full controls on other functions such as dials for aperture, zoom, and exposure compensation.

Do lens makers develop products in a vacuum?

It is now very clear that it is the compactness and usability that made them to be Gear of the Year (i.e. G5xiii, Sigma 45mm, iPhone 11, Ricoh GR3). They don't need to have the best spec or IQ but they are all pleasant to use. The human factor, afterall, is the most important.

Awesome device.

I wonder why only Huawei got banned but not Oppo or One Plus...

Would be interesting if Dpreview ever interview with Panasonic exec, and ask if they listened to photographers in developing the LX100 II.

martin11: Looks boring ,dark and dull to me ...just my first impression.

Beautifull dog!

That's my first thought too. Maybe dpreview picked a bad day to shoot.

Looks like a Sigma DP + Leica TL design.

I'm not familiar with MF at all, but I wonder what are the advantages compared to FF besides higher resolution.

zerlings: Sony saw this coming and they did a admirable job in building a camera system as quickly as possible. They knew this is what they need to do otherwise there is no chance in gaining a foothold from the two established giants.

It will be interesting to see how Sony will respond going forward.

Sony may not be the first to create a FF MILC, but Leica M8 is really a digital rangefinder, addressing mostly to Leica users / affluence people.

I'm interested in the new iPhone. It will be perfect for my wife who has been taking precious photos and videos of our newborn with the iPhone 6s. She has absolutely zero interest in lugging a real camera. For me, even though I have the a7iii and G7xii, but there are still ocassions I use my 6s. I like the other brands havnig dual camera setup - including one for wide angle, but then I also enjoy the Apple ecosystem.

The XR seems a good compromise between price and functionality (although still expensive). I will be eager to see some formal reviews of its camera.

Canon is smart. They don't do teaser. They do leak and rumors.

Interesting. While Sony and Nikon's mirrorless lenses are about the same size as their DSLR counterparts, offering no size/weight advantage. Canon seems to take a different route. That 24-105 R is small!

In reply to:

Copal Fit: Now the critical question: how will rangefinder M-mount lenses perform on both of these cameras? In case they perform better than on Sony MLC bodies, count me in, Nikon!

i doubt. First, nikon's Z mount is not as open as sony's E mount. Also, it doesn't have eye focus which is critical (I enjoy using eye focus on my A7iii + 35mm Summicron combo).

On article Nikon Z6 is a lower resolution, less expensive Z7 (402 comments in total)

I'm a long term canon user who just started using sony a7iii (with mostly adapted lenses). Although not planning to move to Nikon, I feel excited to see the announcement. The Z6/7 seem to be very capable cameras although Sony is still leading at present (especially with eye focus and lens lineup).

Competition is good. Your turn Canon!
