SiberiaWolf: A 2017 camera that costs around 1k, without IBIS - that might be deal breaker...

StevenE: The M needs some fast native primes. f/1.4 or faster.
Mitakon Zhongyi has a 35mm f0.95 ... I'd take a Canon EF-M 35mm f/1.2 (or f/1.4) with IS and AF for $1000

LOL while stupid 16-70 zeiss is 1000 USD it is a dream.But if Sigma 30 1.4 is available for Canon,I would go with it.

Slouch Hooligan: Every announcement of a new DSLR triggers responses from the mirrorless acolytes. Mirrorless does have advantages in camera body size which pleases those with tiny hands. These same mirrorless acolytes consistently fail to mention that lens size is a function of sensor size, which sharply mitigates any advantage of mirrorless. Not to mention the battery life brevity for mirrorless.
One may like apples without disparaging oranges.

dtibi,
I really don't want to involve this silly argument but,
Fujifilm has 16-55 2.8,Samsung had(has) 16-50 2.0-2.8,Panasonic and Olympus also have their similar lenses (12-35 and 12-40 2.8) .
Only Sony still doesn't have it.
BUT so what?..
I really mean so what?
For aps-c sensor 2.8 has depth of field like f 4.2
2.8 itself is not enough under low-light...They are big and expensive as well.
I really have learnt that,2.8 is not enough for APS-C sensor.I would just buy a 2.8 lens only if it goes >135mm,for an aps-c camera...

On the other hand I don't think Sony has enough lenses for its aps-c cameras.It still doesn't have a good value zoom lens for example.Its 16-70 f4 lens doesn't even deserve half of its price.18-105 f4 is big and again doesn't deserve its price.

If you use your DSLR on live view mode always,you will see what happens!
The irony is;EVF was a downside of mirrorless system,but now it is an advantage for sure.Not only for those crappy pentamirrors Canikon using,but also comparing very bright OVF.

Xentinus: I really would love to have such a camera with;
-1 inch sensor
-a lens wider than 24mm (at least 21 or 18 would be better)
-tilt screen
(I know it would be bigger and heavier but it is ok)

Maybe harder but not impossible.
Earlier they kept saying "a professional camera must have a fixed screen",now they started producing articulated ones.

It is not just about the size.I have VERY big hands,my sony a6000 is more comfy comparing nikon d7000. How about that?
Pentax is producing smaller cameras,comparing Canikon,and they also fit very well in hand.
I agree with you when it is about very big lenses.At that point,mirrorless cameras lose their size advantage but weight.
Weight is really important too.And on the other hand,sometimes you just want to walk around with a prime lens.

UneVache: As someone pointed it out, it seems that D5500 and D5600 have exactly the same dimensions. Can't see what's the difference in that comparison :
http://camerasize.com/compare/#580,693
Can you confirm the grip is deeper ?

I guess they didn't even touch d5600 yet<<<<<<<with this,I meant camerasize.com not dpr.
It is obvious it has a deeper grip.

John C Tharp: Attention Sony: this GH5 is how you build a professional mirrorless camera.

I know Panasonic is awesome when it is about video.No doubt it has awesome features,but 2000 USD for a 4/3 sensor.Ah please they better build a professional grade camera!
P.S. Trust me I am not after defending Sony or any other brands.

Infared: I don't need this. I had my Mommie sew name tags to all of my gear. It was a lot less expensive, too.

can you please show how does it look like? Something like that would also work well.You can type numbers on them and stick on your gear.

Jylppy: "Low light image quality significantly worse than peers".

Dear DPR, I think you are too harsh here. The gap to Sony a6500 is rather small @ISO3200 and it is not full stop at @ISO12800, rather half-stop.

ISO12800 images are so noisy on any APS-C camera that I don't get what is a point of making big fuss about it.

I have checked at ISO 6400 actually and compared with OM -D E-M10 II .

I am not trying to defend DPR staff,but compare it with recent MFT.Despite smaller sensor,little bit better high ISO results.

Some of you guys sound like you are so jealous.Why Sony doesn't give us free gear,why Fujifilm doesn't support our works.
This is a thread about his art.Criticize his work ok,but criticizing his personal decisions sounds weird to me.
Answer this question for yourself please;
Can not he make exact the same work with any brand?
He has talent!
