DualSystemGuy: Looks to be a phenomenal lens. Only thing it's missing is VR :)

I know wedding photographers who never buy VR lenses because they kid you that you'll get a good shot, sure it's steady but the action blurs due to the subject moving and that's no good.

It's the second big reason for buying fast glass.

Not too shabby at all.

Emadn13: f1.4 sample portraits are too shallow in my opinion,with this price range a 135mm f1.8 would be better reasonable shallow depth with same bokeh
but this lens is so good for low light,you could take some lowlight shots

Or you could stop it down a little bit....

I like the way you try to make a positive out of so many negatives. My guess is that you don't want to trample their potential but as it is, it's not going to sell enough to warrant a second model as they won't make enough from people who read reviews to finance improvements.

notpc: What will this thing do that the Canon 5Ds can't? More dynamic range? Better high ISO? Something else?

If you doubt the superiority of the larger sensor just take a look at the latest Hasselblad review, or any shots from the Leica SL. If you can't tell the difference I don;t know what else to say...

Bershatsky: Cool, awesome, and neato, but how will it function as a family or event camera? How about sports? How's its autofocus? How does it compare to the competition?

It might be good for cricket...

"What will this thing do that the Canon 5Ds can't? More dynamic range? Better high ISO? Something else?"

If you can't see the difference between FF and MF sensor sizes you must have sight problems, bigger is better, look at the richness and range of colours and the better contrast. Fuji lenses are exceptional at that anyway, this could be a really special camera at a cheaper price than the Leica equivalent.

Is it something I'd buy? Yes, if it came with a team of Sherpas to carry it around. My switch to Fuji X was inspired by it's light weight and its comparitively good image quality compared to Bayer sensors, but this doesn't even have one of those.

Looks pretty damn good to me, and your dog is most photogenic.

No x-trans sensor? That might be a good thing as my PC struggles with the 16mp files of my XT-10.

NicoPPC: Thanks for the article.

I decided to stop consulting DPR.

Obviously editor are not interrested in photography.

Regards.

I'm sure it will fold without your support.

great Javier: Why has sony so many gold medals if to shoot with sony is not a nice experience? I dont really get it.

Have a go on one. I would have purchased but for the horrid user interface, it's like they weren't designed by photographers.

In reply to:

CosminMunteanu: Well, the X-T10 or OM-D E-M10 did not receive so many explanations when it was lanched.
Why a special article about the M5. The same information can be found in the article related to the final review. Because it is a Canon? Seems more like advertising to me.

I think because Canon have finally got right what so many complained about on their mirrorless cameras. When Fuji released the X100 there were plenty of articles like this about it.

Hugo808: Funny how innovative and radical looking digital cameras were in the beginning. Nowadays the more retro they look they better they sell!

And how about that Nikon Coolpix with the swiveling body! That was space age, which might have been the approach the designers were aiming for.

What an odd bandwagon for Leica to jump on to! If they remade the old Polaroid land camera - as used by Ansel Adams etc - I could understand it but just sticking a red spot on a Fuji seems like a way to get into a market they have no recognition in.

I've never seen a shot from an Instax ut I sincerely hope they are better quality than that "Impossible" film they sell for old Polaroid cameras, massive leap downwards in quality for Leica if it doesn't.

Hugo808: If I wasn't recently married to Fuji I'd be onto one of these in a flash. It looks superb and just the job for those of us who got fed up with hauling the big gear around. Good job Canon, I'm sure this will increase competitiveness and drive innovation in the excellent small camera sector.

Lenses are rather important though, and by Christmas the price of the XT-2 will have dropped a bit making it only a tad more than this Canon offering.

If the EOS-M range is enough for you then your choice is clear but Fuji lenses are plentiful and exceptionally good, and the whole thing just feels so right in the hand which goes a long way with me, I tried Sony but why spend all that money if it doesn't make you want to use it?

Thematic: Looks great.

295 shot battery life does make it far worse than Sony and worse than any camera ever released but batteries are cheap.

Can't wait for the review and af tests.

It means you can't see the screen.

BobT3218: People are missing the point. No matter how much lens and sensor technology improves, phones will always be limited to sensors the size of a match head while cameras will have sensors from postage stamp size up whatever one can afford. They are different animals for different purposes.

Yet they take amazing looking photos- in good light. If Apple ever made a "proper" camera they'd rule the photography world.
