On article Canon EOS R5 initial review (1837 comments in total)

To everyone who believes that Canon has intentionally crippled R5 with 8k recording limit - if that is artificial limit, then there should be plenty of 8k RAW recording cameras in the same form factor from Sony, Nikon and Panasonic, right? So where are all those cameras?

Joed700: Here is a suggestion for Canon, keep the video features to a video dedicated machine such as this one and give pure photographers the option of photo only cameras with a more affordable price...R5 w/o video for about $1500. Thank you!

@Revenant my comment is merely a shadow of Roger Cicala's great masterpiece:

Why not for $500? Or better yet $50? Surely they will sell more at this price.

Finally. It was a long time coming.

GinoSVK: Where exactly is that advantage of the Nikon's enormously wide bayonet opening?
Those lenses are very large, while expensive as any other alternatives.

So far I see that Kipon lenses cost more in Z or RF mount that in FE, and some Laowa lenses are not available in RF mount at all...

@snapa Abraham Lincoln was indeed a great President, we could agree on that...

@snapa I am truly sorry to tell you, but America didn't look great for the past 3 years. It looked like a country that cannot resolve its own issues peacefully (using or threatening to use Army against own citizens is a sign of a weak government), country that cannot protect its citizens from pandemic, country whose President is negotiating with foreign leaders help in his re-election rather than his country's interests. It looked like a country that broke with it's allies and questioned the fundamental principles of NATO. I wish it wasn't this way, really. America was great during Reagan administration, not so great during George W. Bush, and not great at all during current administration...

Samsung started by pulling out of one country... Then decided cameras overall are not as profitable as phones and sensors.
I am not a Sony user, but if Sony abandons camera business - that would be a great loss for industry in general... Hope it's just one country.

@snapa the same virus hit Germany too. Now look up the statistics on Germany and US.
Virus itself is not a result of the POTUS actions, late and inadequate response is. And the death toll that resulted from such a response.
First saying "Coronavirus Would Go Away", then blaming others might fool some supporters, but not the nature itself.
You could hide your tax documents when you are lousy businessman. But you cannot hide the deaths when you are lousy president.

Well, if you compare this 50 f/1.2 lens with all the autofocus f/1.2 lenses Nikon have made over the decades... Wait a minute, there wasn't any. So here is your Z mount advantage, right in front of you.

S_Connor: They should have made it a 12-24 like Sony and a 50 f/1.0 like Fujifilm. What were they thinking?

Well, they already have 0.95, so now they could relax a little )

Terrible Photographer: From the samples, it seems the Canon 15-35 and 50mm f/1.2L are slightly better lenses.

@lancet and since both Canon and Nikon publish calculated aka theoretical MTFs, we wouldn't know for sure until Roger Cicala measures 10 samples of each. But for now manufacturer's data is all we have, thank you for finding that information

I am definitely interested in FF travel camera, but most important spec for me is weight, not size. Something like even lighter EOS RP or lighter version of this camera.
And pancake with good IQ instead of zoom please. The whole point is to get IQ much better than with any phone - and glass is very important, not just the sensor.

When all the cameras will be more than good enough technically - will it come to the point when aesthetics will become the main deciding factor in choosing camera system?

This is just a quick summary of options available.
Under no circumstances shall it be considered as an invitation for brand wars and fanboyism.

On article Hands-on with the new Fujifilm XF 50mm F1.0 R WR (549 comments in total)
In reply to:

panther fan: Going F1.0 was a bad and purely marketing based decision.

The 33mm F1.0 was a great idea, because people have long asked Fuji to replace the 23 and 33. And the "wide FoV with shallow DOF" crowd loved the idea to achieve that on APS-C.

But once Fuji realised 33mm F1.0 was not possible, going telephoto to keep the F1.0 was the wrong decision. Instead they should have gone for a 33mm or 23mm F1.2. The 50mm F1.0 has the same practical DOF as the 56mm F1.2, while doubling in size and weight. A 56mm F1.2 II with WR and stronger AF motor would have probably pleased more people and instead of catering to the 23/35 crowd they just agonize them more with still no replacement on the roadmap

Going telephoto with 90mm F/1.0 would've been interesting, but that probably would've been even heavier and more expensive than 33mm F/1.0

Henry Richardson: This is wasted effort. Worse, it is suicide. The higher price of Leica lenses is a feature, not a bug. The higher the better because the status of owning one is directly related to the price. A cheaper price will kill Leica, I think. A race to the bottom. The U.S. would do Leica a great favor by raising the tariff even more! Leicaphiles will be celebrating.

It's not wasted - several Americans might realize Trump's tariffs are actually affecting them...

In reply to:

Peak Seven: I am surprised the U.S. consumer pays the tariff. I know with certainty that for Chinese products the Chinese are paying the tariff. Maybe tariffs imposed on German goods are different from those imposed on Chinese goods ? Hoping Fox can clarify.

You are kidding, right?
