Jim Hully: The most expensive f/4 standard zoom currently available?

Take Canon 24-70mm f4 L IS and mount on EM1. Has it suddenly and magically become and f8 lens? I guess not.
It's still an f4 lens. And you don't need thin razor DOF all the time. Add a 45mm f1.8 to your arsenal and you're done.
I mostly do not want a lot of blurred areas in my photographs. Even for portraits, some people think if pupil is sharp and lashes are blurred, then that's a good portrait! I want to see my model's hair to be sharp also.
This is an excellent travel lens which is weather sealed, has robust build quality and fast AF and very good image quality. It has f4 at 200mm (light gathering) so you don't need very high ISO's either.

It's a 24-70 + 70-200mm f4 "standard" zoom.

ozturert: Just look at lenses to see Canon's innovations.
Still, even DPReview cannot understand reason for Canon's success.

Even simpler APSC lenses have been excellent: 10-18mm IS STM, 24mm f2.8 EF-S, even 22mm f2 and 11-22mm IS STM for EF-M mounts. They are all excellent lenses.

RubberDials: So it's aps-c and 116 x 89 x 61 mm, whilst the A7rII is 127 x 96 x 60 mm with a stabilised FF sensor?

Canon doesn't do small, does it - even in mirrorless.

Canon APSC is 22.3x14.9, FF is 36x24mm. EOS-5M is 11mm shorter than A7RII, which is more than difference between 36 and 22.3. What else do you want? It's the sensor size that drives the dimensions.
For even smaller size, you need to go to Olympus or Panasonic.
Sony's own A6000 is 120mm wide by the way, and M5 seems more ergonomic (though I need to try myself to see).
And, we are talking about mm's here.

MrTaikitso: I just read about this on Engadget, and thought, finally, Canon have innovated in their industrial and handling design. (M3 was dull and lacking in features.) Then I noticed it does not support 4K, which is now vital for prosumers. NO sale. What a huge waste!

I'm a prosumer and I don't give a s..t to 4K.

petr marek: "Kinda crappy" is this Canon promotion video. I am sure that lower ISO on A7S with S-log would bring better image. My opinion, of course...

This is a comparison between low light performances. If A7SII's video is mushy or pure black under same light conditions, then 4K means nothing (in this comparison, remember).
If you need 4K, of course you go with A7S II etc..

Petr, he already says "A7s does not come even close to this).
How can YOU be sure?

It looks like 85mm f1.4A is coming as well :)

ozturert: Still good to have...

But you can do minor focus adjustments, after you take a photo. In DPReview's samples, pictures are in focus already so there is minor if no need to do any corrections. Say, if the focus is on eyeleash instead of the eye, you may be able to correct it (presumably, from text that's what I understand).

photomedium, have you seen a video comparison?
I expect GH4 to be better in video though. It is better than 99% of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras anyway.

Sonyshine: Am I missing something?
With that massive 4K crop isn't this just a big, heavy, over priced MFT video camera? Just sayin'......

Hi Yudi,
Sonyshine was talking about crop factor so I commented on that only.
You can still use Sigma 8-16mm, Samyang 10mm, Tokina 11-16mm if you need very very wide angle but I agree with the lack of options for that. But that's only that! Super wide angle may be an issue, that's all.
Agree with the codec, I'd prefer to have both MJPEG and another more efficient codec. MJPEG is not a bad codec in terms of quality, and you can extract 8MP frames from it, the issue is the card space and speed. I wish Canon came with C-Fast card slot instead of CF.
A7RII looks better on paper, but it has other drawbacks that keep me away from that monster. Operation speed is one of them, for example, or bad AF in low light.
Canon 1DC is still the king of "affordable" 4K cameras, in my opinion, by the way.

Jonathan Brady: I hope people who refer to it as "5DC" or "5D Classic" get out of bed in the morning, walk toward the bathroom, and stub their toes on the door frame as they're going to pee. Every morning. Forever.

Then 1DC is 1D Classic.. But oh wait...
:)
I have an EOS-M camera lying somewhere, I should start calling it EOS-C then :)
