zakaria: It is the Sony samsung war in BSI technology. This tool is a piece of hi tech but the price is the weak part.

I have no idea why you would expect its "critical image quality" to be inferior to the D810. The RX1 proved that it could blow away any 24mp/35mm DSLR pairing. Pair this with the Ultra-sharp 55mm f/1.8 ZA lens, and I think you'll find it to be easily the equal of the equivalent best you can put together w/ a d810.

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (733 comments in total)

Canon bailed out of the US market because it didn't see an interest. Well done, Canon. You called that one!

Did I miss the test of the cycle time? I would have thought that would be included in a review. Surely I read past it without noticing it.

AngryCorgi: Question is: How speed-efficient is the pixel-shift mode? Much like on the Olympus, that factor will be the ultimate determining factor on value of the mode.

Obviously, yes.

We will see if the AF is "HIGH SPEED". If it is, these will sell like hotcakes. If not, they probably will have languishing sales numbers.

$2500?? No raw video format? No 24P option? Canon does realize its not the only fish in the 4K pond, right??

In reply to:

AngryCorgi: I'm assuming this is an Aptina sensor still. Can anyone verify?

Well, regardless of the sensor (or until we know for certain), the control layout and design of the body is a huge improvement on the J-series. It appears less "dumbed-down" now and actually configurable.

AngryCorgi: The CM1 JPEG output is pretty poor and it's lens appears to be nothing special.

Fair enough. :)

Oh, the raws are fine, as far as SNR against the competition. The lens still has a very small sweet spot in the center and drops off to average as you walk toward the edges pretty quick. I only noticed that the JPEG engine seemed to struggle at wrestling out details AND providing noise reduction.

I'm most shocked by how well the GX7 does in this comparison. Their JPEG engine is getting the most out of the sensor. Makes you wonder why Canon purposely ties their hands behind their back in competition by using sub-standard sensors in other devices.

It is said that a smart man learns from his mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. I gather, from the responses in this interview, that Canon may not be employing a large number of wise men.

And that's why your sensors are 2+ generations behind Sony and Nikon and Samsung.

Nikon has no sensor? False. Nikon developed the following sensors: D3/D700, D3s, D4, D4s, DF, D3100, D3200...Nikon states that the D750 sensor is newly designed, suggesting some heavy reworking of the D600/D610 Sony sensor as well. So, yeah...you would be wrong. Care to take a shot across Samsung's bow too? And yes, if you have proven that you can't compete in an area, you'd be wiser to farm those components out to those who can rather than to wallow in failure and ineptitude. But, this interview shows Canon is just a bit too smug to even care.

Daniel Lauring: American's don't want small cameras. HUH?!?f

This was the worst interview yet.

Canon or Maeda as it's rep, seems to lack any bit of humility and this interview only enforces that fact that Canon is a poor listener and completely detached from reality.

Totally agree. Canon hasn't had their ear to the ground in quite a while.
