According to various statistics, Android has 80% of the market share vs. about %15 of iOS share.

Doug Pardee: I haven't yet found a source that indicates whether the pilot mishandled the drone controls, or if the drone failed to respond to his commands.

@ Doug Pardee, doesn't matter, FAA regulations says you are forbidden to fly them over people's heads, and this happening at a parade... I'm sure there was a lot of people there.

Tom Frerichs: Flying over people...although it doesn't say, it sound like a crowd...and crashing into the side of a building certainly are examples of criminal negligence. Based only on the facts related in the story, it sounds like this is an appropriate outcome.

Unfortunately, with so many new drone pilots out there that do things like this, we're likely to see both more prosecutions and more restrictions. The former is proper, the latter is sad because it will penalize those who fly responsibly.

FAA rules does say that flying over people heads is forbidden.

mar2jeter: Yawn....Canon is so far behind Panasonic and Olympus when it comes to features.

@ quite the opposite, is Canon sales that are shrinking the most.

"two Displayport 3.1 connections"

mistake, there is no such thing as Displayport 3.1, they meant 1.3.
Displayport is up to 1.4 now.

cdembrey: Lack of 1/8000 and no 4K is a turn-off. Lack of quality lenses is a deal killer.

BTW I'm a lifelong Canon owner.

for very long time its been time to jump the boat.

I used to be a huge Canon user, had 3 cameras, 15 some lenses, now I'm completely done with Canon.

tired of always getting second best, 3-4 years later after competition got it.

its funny that they go through all this trouble to make a counterfeit lens but they miss a simple detail like putting a space in there.

beavertown: Sure YN is a shameless copy cat but they also show us how much a lens costs and how much we have been ripped for decades.

Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 vs the $125 Canon 50mm f/1.8 II
http://petapixel.com/2014/12/27/comparing-optics-40-yongnuo-50mm-f1-8-125-canon-50mm-f1-8-ii/

the R&D going from FL50, FD50, EF 50 is minimal, lens design haven't changed much over the years, all the changes are minimal. Market is shrinking that is the real reason why prices keep going up.

FuhTeng: "Canon and Nikon don't ever release firmware updates for their lenses! This proves Sigma is better than Canon and Nikon and further demonstrates the superiority of Fuji cameras over the market leaders!" - there you go Fuji-trolls, I took care of it for you.

Wait, this is for lenses? Nevermind then. Still, do CaNikon ever release lens firmware updates?

"Wait, this is for lenses? Nevermind then. Still, do CaNikon ever release lens firmware updates?"

Release? No, Make them, yes. For some lenses when you send them in for service they come back with a "update" often not mentioned, but it does happen.

Glen Barrington: I'd say this was a fair assessment. To me, this camera is exactly the sort of camera I expected Canon to produce.

It's 'serious' enough to shut most the mirrorless whiners up, and maybe sell well enough to not cost the company too much in profit, but not so well that they would be forced to spend much in the way of R&D for the next one or cut into their high end DSLR sales.

Canon is content to remain a half step slower than the other producers. Let them take the risk, let them figure out what the user wants. A 'me too' camera suits their needs just fine.

Canon is NOT the manufacturer one turns to for innovation. They've been there and done that. They want to sit back and enjoy being market leader for a while.

nope, right from specs list "Number of focus points 49"

Eos m5 is not competitive by 2016 standards... Af lacks... Mirrorless cameras from 2015-16 have 200-400 focus points... Are quicker to focus... Can record 4k, have electronic shutters, build in ibis systems. Sony can autofocus almost any lens ever released now even stuff is manual focus. This Canon should have been released in 2014.

My Fujitsu ix500 does the same, for lower price.
https://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-Document-Scanner-PA03656-B305/dp/B01G3JYVYM/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

Yes, its called a "document scanner" but works great with images, does 600dpi in highest mode, about 2-3 seconds per picture.

scans both sides at the same time.

Frank_BR: A manual-focus lens from Tokina? Hmmm ... this is the territory of Samyang, which has just launched a 20mm F1.8 lens, which is faster (and probably cheaper, too) than this Tokina. I feel that Tokina is dreaming of the past when it was a competitive lens company.

plus the Tokina has electronic contacts, it will talk to the camera.
