A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. I still want one of those DL compacts....

D135ima: А ведь могла получится отличная камера. Все для кого 5D4 был слишком дорогим и излишне репортажным, ждали её.
Господи, это ведь прямо как мой 5d2, мои родные шумы при обработке.
Впервые сенсор с подобными характеристиками появился в 1DsIII, по правде говоря, она была заточена под низкие исо и ДД на исо 100 там даже выше. 10 лет ! Совершенно не имеет значения для кого по мнению кэнон эта камера, за 10 лет эту характеристику должно было "случайно зацепить". Ну не бывает такого в мире технологий. И нельзя выкатывать в 2017ом году ФФ, который по способности сохранять после обработки качественную картинку с низкими шумами, чистыми текстурами с честным разрешением уступает какому-то никоновскому кропу типа д5200, который наверное сейчас можно с молотка долларов за 250-300 взять. Ну блин нельзя ! Тем более это ФФ, медленный, любительский ФФ - единственное что от него требуется - это качество изображения

Apart from my curiousity, I just thought I'd give everyone the chance to read your pearls of wisdom.

Good to see Canon keeping up with the spirit of Throwback Thursday.

From Google translate:

"But it could turn out a great camera. All for whom the 5D4 was too expensive and unnecessarily reportable, they were waiting for her.
Lord, it's just like my 5d2, my native noises when processing.
For the first time a sensor with similar characteristics appeared in 1DsIII, in truth, it was imprisoned for low iSo and DD on iso 100 there is even higher. 10 years ! It does not really matter to whom, in the opinion of Canon, this camera, for 10 years this characteristic should have been "accidentally hooked". Well, there is no such technology in the world. And you can not roll out FF in 2017, which by the ability to save after processing a high-quality picture with low noise, clean textures with an honest resolution is inferior to some Nikon crochet type d5200, which probably now can be taken with a hammer of dollars for 250-300. Well, damn it is impossible! Especially this FF, a slow, amateur FF - the only thing that is required of it is the image quality"

In reply to:

AngularJS: 300+ comments about theoretical DR and 0 comments about the actual images which look awesome. Nice :)

Canon clearly don't like that HDR short-cut look.

Dr Blackjack: It's intresting how many people bash a camera for being all about aesthetics in a hobby who's goal is all about aesthetics.

Whatever works for you I guess, but you still aren't bracing it against your face to minimise shake. Give me IS just in case...

One needs practicality in order to control the aesthetics I suppose.

Personally, I'd have one of these if it had image stabilisers in the lenses, can't be doing without that these days, not in a camera you have to hold in front of you like a tourist.

cdembrey: Phone-like touch-screens are the future. Just looks at the expensive Sekonic Light Meters and the heads-up display of military aircraft. Speed and efficiency always trump cool—but snark rules on comment forums.

I don't think so. You'll still have to have buttons and dials for when it's lifted up to your eye. And I don't want fingerprints all over my screen. I think the first manufacturer to drop what we know and love in favour of touch screens will be taking a big gamble that is very likely to fail.

If it aint broke don't try to fix it.

(Leica don't count because they've got a hardcore of rich fans who'll buy anything with a red dot on it)

Excellent. Very enjoyable selection.

brycesteiner: I don't understand PETA's roll in this. Was the animal tortured and killed for food? Do they not think animals should be out in the wild anymore? Do they sue National Geographic for having animal pictures? I'm vegetarian but certainly don't agree with PETA. Promoting the creature is the one thing the photographer did. So, I'm confused.

Anthropomorphism is making a monkey of you.

John Usa: Sadly and angrily I find this ridiculous case to be super unfair to David Slater.
If I were the judge I would have definitely ruled for Mr. Slater.
I find Wikimedia and PETA are despicably unfair, greedy, evil and heartless.
I do wish Wikimedia and PETA will come to their senses and remedy this sad and unfair case.

Making my dog crap on the lawn is unethical?

The trouble with animal rights of course, is that they don't extend the same rights to us. I' a vegetarian but I doubt a lion would take that into account when looking for something to eat.

ThatCamFan: This is the crasiest and dumbest case I have ever known going on. Of course the photographer should own the image for freaks sake!

The photographer is not the monkey. To be the photographer the monkey would have to know what it was doing. And it didn't. It didn't complain about use of it's image either. In fact I bet the monkey went straight back to picking fleas off its mum and eating fruit.

It's us dumb apes that get confused about things, the rest of nature just gets on with it.

Chimpanzees use it all the time on Grindr.

How can an animal have rights if it doesn't understand them and can't reciprocate? All this is nothing but anthropomorphism. When monkeys and the other apes have evolved enough to become laywers then we can talk to them about rights and responsibilities, until them we should stop being offended on their behalf, especially about photography because they really don't care.

Yes, how can something be unethical if the creature concerned doesn't understand why and hasn't been remotely inconvenienced?

Utter madness. If the monkey had filed the lawsuit fair enough but he could still claim that it was his equipment and shared the royalties. But it wasn't the monkey that cared it was some even dumber ape.

Mike FL: That's why NIKON did not release DL18-50.

His site was compulsory at one point, it was fun to get his opinion on things but nowadays it's just an advert for "perfectly clear" and for whatever is on sale at his sponsors' shops.

And his reviews weren't ever detailed, but I just looked at his attempt at the Canon M6 and didn't feel like I learned anything other than I might get good jpegs if I purchased "perfectly clear".

Those new Grado headphones look good though....

munro harrap: As A D800 user I can only hope that my reading between the lines is correct, and that Nikon will keep the same body design : in other words simply remove the mirror from a DSLR . And carry on without one.

Sony made a decorative yet tragic choice when they went mirrorless because the too small bodies have too useless batteries and lack weatherproofing and durability, and I take the view that this path is being rightly rejected by Nikon.

The second reason , apart from a D bodies much better ergonomics is that the size/weight advantage is lost as soon as you put a decent lens on an e mount Sony.

Even on APS-C the 16-70mm and 24mm f1.8 are enormous because they have to include the extra barrel length anyway, so the small body is a con trick in fact!! Add a 70-400mm and it is bigger than its "A" mount equivalent for the same reason.

And all the adaptors and the fiddling, and the exhorbitant cost of switching, bah, fiddlesticks, not me!!

What would be the point of a DSLR without a mirror? I can't think of an advantage.

It's obvious they're just trying to get on the bandwagon somehow but the ideas posted above really aren't going to tempt anybody into a Nikon system.

The trouble with keeping the F mount is that you have a big fat body with nothing inside, nobody will go for it as it looks silly. If they build a new range of lenses for short-flange bodies they'll be up against Sony and I can't see them doing that either.

Maybe they've come up with something genuinely new and radical? But then I look at the Df and realise they might not be up to it as a company.
