TeddyD: I actually like the idea of f11 superteles and it could be perfect for BIF and such but.. but their AF area is restricted in the center frame which makes these lenses, sorry to say, a wasted opportunity.

Sure, and I did and do even today without any AF for wildlife. But I don't say I'm using a revolutionary out-of-the-box thinking and gear. Slow superteles aren't excactly anything new IMHO

On article Choosing a camera Part 2: is a bigger sensor better? (416 comments in total)

As they say in the last sentence "it's not that simple" :) The reality is different in some respects as the "same field of view" is actually an advantage for smaller sensor. Let's say shooting supertele or macro..

Nikon, Sigma, Tamron, Voigtländer, Zeiss and anyone! Make some good corner to corner f/2 MANUAL F mount UWAs, pretty please (I'll adapt them into ML bodies).

JT26: So basically just taken their DSLR and removed the mirror ; )

Concur 'bout the need for speed, but there's no reason being fast and bulky with digital. I do shoot wildlife occasionally 5 to 10fps with my smaller cameras, not the largest one.
That aside I'm also excited to see what's coming thou my expectations are a bit different than most as I use manual legacy glass so I need only an adapter to "change" from one ML to another.

Never been a sports photographer so didn't need a motor drive on F1 thou I had the older model which was a bit bulkier.
In those F1 days there wasn't lighter alternatives for those who needed faster shooting so the speculation in this regard is fruitless.

Entoman, yes 1Dx of course. Can't fathom anyone considering D5 and 1Dx being ideal size.
I'm very excited to see the ML Nikons just my priviledges are in manual lenses and how they are supported in the becoming models, as N1 was disappointment in that regard. Nikon won't fail with ergonomics but let's see as due my lens selection I'm intrested in any good ML body regardless of the brand if the functions are what I'm looking for.

Canon F1:
146.7mm(W) x 48.3mm(D) x 96.6mm(H)
Weight:
795g
Canon D1:
158 x 163.6x 82.7mm
Weight 1340g
Just wondering what kind of evolution has happened with professional photagraphers if they prefer the size of D1 over the F1?

TeddyD: Canon has abandoned their customers with new mount before and it was beneficial for them, screw the customer, so there's no reason why they wouldn't do it again. Think about it, an oppurtunity to sell again +100million lenses. The main design criteria is to prevent Canon owners to jump for another brand which is way too easy now with AF capable adapters from EF to E.

Teddy

Even the 5D IV is behind Sony what comes to the sensor performance. One bit in color sensitivity and one EV in DR compared to A7rIII. Not saying it's bad but they need to do something better fast or get Sony sensors. My bet is Sony sensors, it's cheaper on the long run. A good move might be to sell Canon sensors to Samsung and go with them.

Sorry, their lenses aren't so good that there's a reason to brag about it. https://www.dxomark.com/lenses/brand-canon-nikon-sony-sigma-carl_zeiss-samyang-voigtlander/launched-between-1987-and-2018/mount_type-Canon_EF-Nikon_F_FX-Sony_FE/focal-from-35-to-135/launch_price-from-0-to-13000-usd/lens_zoom-prime#hideAdvancedOptions=false&viewMode=list&yDataType=global

The truth is Canon has allready abandoned their DSLR users. The new lenses will be only ML so will new bodies with better performance. Maybe some dumbed down models for the "fake" of reputation. The real question is have they swithed to better sensors too (Sony?).

Just another thought that this is the reason for the lack of real innovations and killer models during the last years as they come with them with the new FF mirrorless and new mount at once.

Worse in what? Stating the obvious? You wan't to hear some positive about Canon? They have great lenses and the best marketing in the business..

Three years behind in sensor DR. EOS M's as good as Nikon J5. Well done Canon, you can only do better, worse is not possible. :D

I find it funny AF folks having their problems which brand to use and which is the best.
Lucky me with my MF lenses can choose whatever MILC plus some DSLR I want and go shooting :D
