ashokvashisht: I shoot Wildlife in India. Given the QC issues of 3rd party lenses I am not sure a 100-400 will be the best buy ? In India getting my lens changed (if it has a glitch) will be a bigger hassle than say in the US. So I am of the view that a D7200 with a Tamron (!) 70-200 f2.8 G2 with a 1.4x TC will be a better idea ? My subjects are mainly Elephants & Deer but in India we do not any open plains but thick Jungles so distances are shorter. This rig will give me range of 105 - 300 / 147 - 420 mm. Advice welcome.

You just answered your own question.

"I cant afford this or have no need for this, therefore it should not be available on the market for anybody else because I think its pointless and overkill based on my needs and everybody else is like me!!" - everybody commenting

MikeFairbanks: Not cool. So many posers on this planet that it makes my head spin.

Just go to any social media platform and do a search for one of today's famous people and you'll get dozens of people who have the same name and a photo. The verified ones are obviously correct, but not every famous person is verified. Plus, even without verification, why would anyone want to pretend to be another person?

Posers are extremely pitiful people. They must have zero self-worth.

Be yourself.

Nice projection there buddy

Retzius: If you printed Zeiss on them and marked up the price by 200% I guarantee there would be a blog post about the superiority of the Zeiss coasters 3D Pop and micro-contrast.

Yeah but then these coasters wouldnt align properly due to the decentering quality control issues.

Frank_BR: Every year people die trying to climb Mount Everest. It is not just the climbers who die, but also the Sherpa guides and rescue team people. Nevertheless, climbing Mount Everest is not felony, quite the contrary, it is a show of courage and talent. Go figure...

Trespassing is courageous and requires talent? Really?

maxnimo: Think this through: These guys now basically have their life ruined, their future is over ... even though there's no real victim and nobody died. Yet those individuals that start unnecessary wars and destroy a million families get to collect high salaries and pensions without a single day in prison.

False dichotomy to the max.

I dont see anything wrong with this. They did something illegal and were caught. How does being a photographer give you the right to negate the law? Another case of photographers thinking they are special little snowflakes.

wakaba: Its1080p internally. No real 4k. It does less than a Gopro Hero at 2.5x the price. Verdict: PoC

@kelstertx

>For me, the $60 Amazon Chinese 1080p knockoffs are good enough for my vacations. Plus, they come with a zillion attachments, including 2 waterproof cases -- one with a mic hole for sound, and one that's fully submersible.

LOL youre an idiot

Another creative tool for a real photographer that actually creates images.

cgarrard: How can this camera be called rangefinder style. It looks nothing like a rangefinder. How bout compact style mirror less? Much more accurate.

@left eye
they aren't fully grips. in the CONTEXT of DSLRs. Do those camera look like they have dslr sized grips? Hardly. Rangefinder style is compared to DSLR. That's it. No one has ever claimed it is literally a rangefinder. Are you autistic by any chance?

ottonis: At 600USD the M100 is directly positioned against Sony's A6000, which is Sony's best selling ILC camera.
I hope that Sony will feel the threat and lower the price of the A6300 in order to make it a more tempting, albeit somewhat pricier alternative to the M100.
In any way, competition is a great thing and I hope that Sony will make all the right choices and decisions which may all be slightly accelerated by the new competitor.

It compares to the Sony a5100 ya dingus.

Phil Birder: Actually had to double check I wasn't reading a year old article. 1080p? Seriously?

How does resolution dictate wether its a beginner camera or not? Its 2017.

cityofdust: canon did very smart with This camera by creating a bridge between camera and smartphone. Easy share photos and inbuilt filters and editing. Instead of pretending everyone want a powerhouse they focus on fun.

I would have 1 or 2 ideas how this can be improved and expanded but this is the right direction.

Is this sarcasm? Every manufacturer has been doing this for years. Even the original NEX-3/5 did this like 10 years ago with the dumbed down aperture slider feature. Canon is extremely late to the party.

straylightrun: So does this Canon mirrorless finally have a silent electronic shutter mode?

Funny, because Canon has no mirrorless camera with silent electronic shutter.

breschdlingsgsaelz: I wonder what you need an IS is a 85 f1.4 for? That one will be used for portraits mainly and wide open. I never missed an IS in my 85 1.8 even in low light situations.

What I would buy immediately would be an extender compatible 200mm f2.8 with IS. There it would be very useful and the 70-200 is much too big to haul around in many cases.

Pro Tip: if you think you can shoot everything with a steady hand down to 1 second, then you can turn the IS off!!

Rangefinder style in the context of DSLRs mean no grip. This has no grip. Simple.

Stephen Griffiths: That's a good spec for the money. Same photo-taking capabilities as M5 and M6 in a much cheaper and smaller form. Dual-pixel autofocus, capable sensor etc. Nice package!

Not really. Thats because the M5 and M6 were overpriced to begin with.
