Georgeee: Canon, take your baby steps. I am running to the Sony camp.

I could cope with all Sony issues you mentioned... a deal breaker for me was a cold colour rendering. I could not correct for that even in the PP. It's like... genetic defect that can't be corrected. Gave up on Sony exclusively because of that crap colour. Shame, their cameras are technological marvels!!!

The 1923 Leica 0-Series camera sells for $2.8M

Maybe we should refrain from smart ass comments, buy one of these stealth edition ones, and store it safely for a while...

Beautiful shots, so pleasing, warm & clear... and people still wonder why Canon is No1. Imagine this lens being tested on that new Sony camera that everyone is going crazy about.... the skin tones and cool color would scare everybody. away.

Details in abundance - very nice.
Fantastic greens.
Great colour in general.
Carey Rose photos are always a treat for an eye, thank you.
But... the photos are all way too dark.
That XF 23/1.4R bokeh gives me headache... ouch.

Petak: He got the money from Apple, got free advertising from nerdy and apple fansites and got the low budget look he was probably going for anyway - it's a win-win.

Mono sound would be an unexpected bonus. Unexpected because we are in the 21st century.

SarahTerra: Going out on a limb here, but any good camera is probably not made in a glass case.

Just sayin.

That camera has a wireless charging - hence glass front&back.

Just sayin.

bjornphoto: Sometimes I think people here are like the annoying "audiophiles" who don't enjoy music that isn't played with the "right" audio equipment.

The most recent smartphones produce great images. Not technically better than DSLR's, but certainly enjoyable for the majority of people who look at the image as a whole rather than each pixel.

The iPhone X is top of the pile for many people and fair play to those who go out and take great photos with it. I can see why they don't give a damn what people on the internet think of them. Photography with any camera you choose can be enjoyable.

Single-ended pure class A with no more than 3 gain stages... the rest is indeed just rubbish.

Nice gallery photos. Thank you!

10 years ago at a graduation ceremony I attended with my older kid, everyone held a camera - MANY of them where expensive dSLR / prime lens combos. Pretty much no-one used a mobile phone to take the shots. I used dSLR/nice zoom lens as well.

A few months back, the same occasion for my younger kid, same school. There was ONE dSLR and (a white) prime lens. The rest of us used mobile phones to take the pictures... Sad I know, but a fact.

Wonder what'll happen in next 10 years....

I'm not surprised at how bad the iPhoneX photos are. That's a mobile phone camera, after all.

What really surprised me is how bad those Canon photos are.

Robert Zanatta: Datsun B210 - worst car ever!

Many of the good lighting shots are great for a smartphone. The low lighting is still not good, especially the night club photo.

Nice to have that capturing ability on the go.

Winner, Moment Category.... stunning capture.

qunamax: We've been refilling printers for two decades or so, what's up with this?

I've been using the 3rd party cartridges for decades, with exceptional results and at 1/10th of the price of Canon cartridges. A 6-set of Canon cartridges costs as much as a whole, brand new printer.

Just to help iphone users understand the depth of this criminal action... the intentionally crippled phones run at 0.4 of their original capability - that is a reduction in processing speed from 1400MHz all the way down to 600MHz. Why, because the battery deteriorated 20%??? Ha!
