photomedium: What's with the digic6, digic7 ?
How come the 5D4 got a 6 and this one a 7?

The 5D Mark III has DIGIC 5+ and the 5D Mark IV has DIGIC 6+. I suspect that the + part means that they are specifically designed for full frame cameras.

The 80D version of Dual Pixel CMOS AF, plus the additional processing power of DIGIC7, should produce some good AF results. (The 80D only has DIGIC6.)

"Take the Samsung NX1..." -Barney Britton

The Samsung was $2799 camera. It's dumb to compare it to the $1,099 Canon M5. And of course, the Samsung was a marketplace failure.

"So why is the M5 such a letdown? Because this is the camera that Canon should have released at least two years ago" -Barney Britton

The 80D version of Dual Pixel CMOS AF wasn't available two years ago. The additional processing power of DIGIC7 wasn't available two years ago. Canon claims "DIGIC 7 can handle approximately 14 times more data as the DIGIC 6".

Nikon's Steve Heiner has a really tough job, pretending to be excited about their KeyMission cameras. :-)

That said, their D5 and D500 are apparently very nice cameras, so the year as a whole wasn't a product development bust.

kobakokh: its very interesting: Canon and Nikon totally ignored this Photokina show... But Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fujifilm shows their flagship products, very high quality, even top class products... I really don't understand whats happen now in the world... Its looks like the DSLR era is ending, and then Canon and Nikon not interesting for this kind of show, maybe we will see soon their mirrorless cameras, but after this Photokina they will have very strong competitors, if not better... Last OM-D and GH5 are extraordinary good cameras...

How is Canon announcing their M5 "totally [ignoring] this Photokina show"? In spite of the hypercritical whining on DPR, it will probably have decent sales.

As noted above, I think Canon (and Nikon?) announce their flagship DSLRs before the Olympics. Mirrorless camera companies don't do that, because their cameras aren't good enough to be used in that venue.

Nikon DL "Prototypes are not yet available, we were told." -DPR

No prototypes, for a camera that was announced in February. That's absurd.

The marketplace was crying out for a new late entrant in a glutted sector. :-)

"and Nikon promising a comparable 'DL' model at some point." -DPR

At the rate Nikon is going, they won't ship their DL line until 2018.

With this camera, you can take videos of people playing Pokémon Go. :-)

Well, the double-disqualifies me from buying this camera. :-)

"With the new flagship OM-D will exceed the APS-C camera in overall value." -Press Release

If this camera is such a great value, why don't they mention the price?

tobicy68: This would have been big news if it wasn't over shadowed by mirrorless medium format...

Medium format cameras are a tiny niche, sold at extremely high prices. They don't overshadow anything.

Way back in April, Nikon wrote:

"In addition, the premium compact cameras, Nikon DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8, DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8, and DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6, will be delayed due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing built into the three new premium compact cameras, originally scheduled for a June 2016 release.
The new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided."

And they still haven't announced a new release date for the DL line.

(exaggeration) I understand that, unlike Sony 6X00 cameras, Panasonic cameras don't burst into flames when doing 4K video. :-)

In reply to:

bluevellet: Canon M5 not even worthy to be compared to this real camera.

One difference is that the Canon M5 has a larger sized sensor, and more megapixels. (24.2MP, APS-C).

Debankur Mukherjee: Where is Nikon ? .............

"But now with Canon playing seriously in the mirrorless market, Nikon’s dormant Nikon 1 series looks pretty seriously dead in the water. If Nikon wants to play, they need something new, and with a bigger sensor." - Thom Hogan

photogecko: Canon are a lost company.

"Canon will almost certainly pass Olympus this year and move into the number two [mirrorless market share] spot." -Thom Hogan

http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/mirrorless-market-shares.html

And, of course, Canon is number one in DSLR market share and number one in compact camera market share. Other camera companies wish that they were that "lost". :-)

Barney, your rambling article is big disappointment.
