Thank you for this thoughtful and perspective article. In many ways rings true for me. My favorite lens might be the Canon EF 35mm f1.4 L II.

Orim_70: The biggest disappointment will be, once the R5 is available, the prize :-D

That's in or over the A9 II land and there is no logical reason why Canon should sell the R5 cheaper. So expect a retail prize of $4999 with a additional price premium for 8k Video of min. $1000. So in summery $5999 body only.

But still, it will be a move in the right direction from Canon ...

Nah, disagree. I think more like in the $3,000-$3300 range. Feels more like the mirrorless version of the 5DS(R) model

IamJF: Switching between focus and control ring - genious & easy & cheap. Please all other manufacturers - copy this! Make a software option for existing lenses in camera!

I see this lens as a 24-70 kit lens with some extra zoom - which get's darker, that's fine. Still better as APS-C or M43 kit zooms.
Let's see what the aperture looks like at 50 and 70mm.

@lamJF
Good points! I am pretty sure the maximum aperture will jump quickly as you advance through the zoom range. I am guessing f5.6 by 40mm and f7.1 at 85mm. They will have to "protect" the RF24-105 f4 and justify the huge cost difference between the two.

I don't have a long experience with Tamron, but I did rent the 35-150 and 35 1.4 last year. Both very good, especially the 35 1.4 which is a total beast!!!! If these new offerings come close to the 35 1.4, then kudos to Tamron.

Razor512: Is it possible for therm to take the pixel shift further and do more than 400 megapixels?

400mp is still quite a low resolution.

Not to worry man... you good. It will instantly notify you of "upload failed" which should take a huge worry off your mind. Nothing like instant gratification or lack of...... :-)

Foskito: Old-time Lightroom user, Just downloaded yesterday the trial version to process my Fuji XT3 files so I can compare the results with LR. It looks much more robust and complex, I hope the learning curve won’t be so difficult.

As a fellow Fuji XT3 user I can say you will probably not go back to LR to process your XT3 RAWs. C1-20 is SOOO much better.

Aroart: I find it rather amusing that DP is talking about DJI rumors and not one article about the new Autel EVO 2 that has been released...

@Gannon Burgett
Why do you guys feel it necessary to dubunk fake news, uninformed opinions and foolishness on these forums? Totally uncalled for. Do better DPR (insert devious grin right here).

Sardonic G: If Olympus would let go of their stubborn insistence on sticking with "miniature" sensors and start making cameras with "full frame" censors while incorporating their stellar technological innovation I suspect their market share would grow exponentially from where it is now.

I feel Olympus missed a great opportunity 4-5 years ago to join Sony as the only other mirrorless Full-Frame player. This would most likely not impact the EM product lines. Even if they eventually developed a full framer, it just feels a bit late out of the barn as they have missed a chance to be ahead of Nikon, Canon and Panasonic in that segment of the market.

smeisinger: You can get much better results in a fraction of time with a modern entry level DSLR and kit lens. Scanning negatives/slides really has no place in this world anymore. It's such a waste of time.

@smeisinger - No not offended at all, just calling you out on inaccurate BS. In case you cant see that, everyone else that read your posts sees it. Then you tried to cover your tracks. Don't care if you wrote a book that became a NY Times best seller. The issue was your postings here. Again this has nothing to do with the mountains of info available with a search. It has every thing to do with you my good man. You were wrong......own up to it.

@smeisinger - I hear you, but your comments are (1) extremely vague and (2) misleading. This leads one to question the validity of your statements. Using a kit lens when, as you said, "when not serious", leads one to ask, which kit lens? There are no kit lens made by any manufacturer that can get close enough to slide/film strip to get anything even barely useful. How exactly are you achieving this not so serious operation? Unless you are using a macro lens to get 1:1 (or something very close), a light table or a bright enough light source and something to hold your film in place, there is no way, even when you are not serious that you are achieving a useful scan.

@smeisinger - No disrespect meant, but that is not the way to go my guy if you are using a DSLR. Get a macro lens. For Nikon APSC the 40mm or full frame the 60mm should do a nice job. There are some rental houses that can be used for a low price if someone doesn't want to purchase that lens. DSLR with macro is not a bad option to archive a roll. I do add the Epson V700 to workflow when I have a frame that I want to extract the very best quality (for printing large). In these cases I wet scan and extract as much detail available.
