In reply to:

TN Args: I think that it is a real pity that you rushed this review into print while the Nikon DL 24- 500 is on the horizon. The Nikon and the Sony together are the new kids on the block, so side-by-side comparison is a really good idea, and would've made all the comparative discussion going on in this review much more complete.

I'm glad that you highlighted the poor performance of this camera with birds in flight or similar types of long-range action photography. That is the one area in which the Nikon is possibly a bit of a game changer for this type of camera. We, the unwashed masses, need to know!

"while the Nikon DL 24- 500 is on the horizon."

Unfortunately, it appears that we won't be seeing this camera any time soon.

Just drip paint all over your camera, and call it The Jackson Pollock Special Edition. :-)

[I had it], but returned it, because using it was a hassle. :-)

They were going to call it the Vorndran Mannheims Capital X1D, but it just didn't have the right ring to it. :-)

(That's the company that bought Hasselblad.)

Max Iso: Not my cup of tea but i bet in time these will put most other ML out of buiz. MFT might be ok as they can sell their small size, all other ML systems are in trouble.

This is a tiny-niche product that not a threat to anything.

When it is eventually released, it will be interesting to see how the Nikon DL24-500 compares. It has "105-point phase detection AF" and "171-point contrast-detect AF". It also has a touchscreen.

Irrelevant for the 99%. (Not a game changer.)

Meh.

A "'game changer"? Is it "magical" and "revolutionary" too? :-)

(thinking of Apple's favorite marketing clichés.)

In worldwide ILC market share, Canon has been the "the pack leader" for thirteen straight years.

D'oh! (What was Nikon thinking.)

And, on their unreleased DL line, Nikon states that there are "serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing".

Not good.

In reply to:

FuhTeng: I have Lynda.com through my local library and the photography courses have been useful, and it's free to me, so I'll stick with that. There are so many of these types of courses out there, I'm sure having Canon's name on it will help, but how else to distinguish itself? Or is Canon branding enough, like Trump university?

@solarsky: Canon is all about distracting your attention from Pentax et. al.

Pentwho? Pentax's market share is so miniscule that Canon has no reason to be concerned about them.
