For professionals and enthusiasts, yes you need access to a setting with a push of a button because you don’t have time to navigate the menu and looks for a setting, but for causal users, probably don’t really need that many customised buttons.

Gerard Shutter: Good attractive camera, I'm just sorry for the plasticky feeling.
I think micro 4/3 has a lot to give especially with sensor technology reducing the gap between sensor sizes more and more.

I agree wholeheartedly. Each sensor size and system should have its application and a place in the market. Full frame lenses are still large and heavy in geneal and they are much more expensive. Yes. Sony and Canon and Tamron have made small and light full frame lenses but they aren’t cheap to begin with for wildlife photography, m43 still has a clear advantage. I hope they further exploit this differentiation.

justmeMN: For those who wondered why Canon made F11 lenses:

RF600mm F11 IS STM: $699.99

RF600mm F4L IS USM: $12,999.00

Not everyone can afford the best.

i think Canon just opens up the door for Olympus to come back at least on the wildlife photography front. Those F11 glass are nice addition to the lineup but they are either weather sealed nor bright enough to use in most situations. Canon still tries to protect their high end expensive and bulky prime lenses which leave a huge hole in the middle. After the 1000 dollar range, if you want to upgrade, you need to pay 10 grands plus for those heavy and expensive primes. No wonder so many photographers switch to Olympus.

One thing we have probably noticed is that out of the 16 finalists, none of them uses Sony cameras. For all the A9 autofocus’s prowess, it seems wildlife photographers value body design more, two uses Olympus and all others either use Canon or Nikon.
