In reply to:

kevin_r: Is there some kind of patent protecting fully articulated screens which prevents Sony from using one on their cameras?
Or is there one which has licence or royalty fees which Sony is unwilling to pay?

Just asking, because no matter how users raise their desires in online forums, Sony seems unable to either hear or see or respond to those requests for a fully articulated LCD screen on their still cameras.

I've both the Panasonic G cameras and Sony high end SLTs and I see no advance in one systems fully articulated screen to another.

ecka84: Looks nice and sharp, but somewhat dull in terms of contrast and color saturation. Could be normal for m4/3 though. Can't see why it costs $600. Leica branding? This is more than 3 times the price of my EF 40mm f/2.8 STM.

Now you're confused about sensibility and exposure.
That's two different things.
Technically.

Edmond Leung: How to compete with Panavision+Red 8K???
Sony is dying in this high-end cine business.

Full frame 35 mm film format for movies is actually 22x16mm (standard 35 mm format) or smaller (variants) or 28,66x24,89 (super 35 mm format).

ecka84. I was wrong. It seems that no photo book can help you.

In reply to:

Duckie: That bloody thing had a faulty Sony sensor and died prematurely. There was a product recall then followed swiftly by Sony buying Minolta before any court case happened. Yes folded optics was and is still great. But nowadays it takes a good reason to carry a "fool's camera". The mere thought of being viewed as uncool is daunting enough!

My X20 sensor suffered from the same problem. What a shame. A pocket portable camera with video, web cam function, pictures with sound, selfie function, macro, 2 MP sensor. AA batteries. Selectable shutter sound to the classics Minolta XD7 og CLE.

In reply to:

PhotoKhan: It is quite curious the joystick is being praised, since it closely resembles what has been featured in past and current action photography cameras and I find that Implementation very inconvenient due to the short throw of the actuators.

I've always wondered why a mini track ball with click-push-to-select was never an option (...that I know of...) but, with the modern touch screens there's an even more efficient alternative, especially suitable for mirrorless cameras: AF selection through the touch screen, via total or partial areas activation.

It is featured on the EOS M6 and I find it simply genius.

Panasonic has had that for many years. A very convenient use of a touch screen.

From the specs. What a fantastic camera. A milestone in digital camera development. And promising a bright future for all of us who use our cameras for taking pictures and videos not matter what camera brand we're using today.

What a nice camera - It has every thing a MFT should have and on the top of it in the G classic style with full articulated screen and EVF. Beautiful.

Nobby2016: the eos-m is a nice camera on it´s own.
unfortunately it does not exist alone.

i have around 18000$ worth in canon lenses and i still decided to buy a sony A6000.

i wanted a mirrorless for when i travel light.
i don´t need 10 lenses for it.
i don´t want to carry them with me when i travel anyway.

all i wanted was a small camera with an EVF that has an up-to-date sensor, blazing speed, good AF.

in all of these specs the A6000 was the better camera.

i really want canon to give me mirrorless i can love.
but for that it has to be at least as good as the competition.
just cheaper does not cut it for me.

Sony offers all the quality E and FE lenses you would/could pay for if you don't need the long primes.

deanfuller: Equivalent aperture range "F7.6-10.8".

Ha! The math deniers will surely fume about this. Mathematically, it is true though.

Apparently you're do not know how to to define f numbers? Several webpages for photographic absolute beginners can help you understand what's all about.

Donnie G: The ME20F-SH is a good example of how Canon plays to its strengths by creating entirely new imaging tools that present real solutions to longstanding problems encountered by imaging industry professionals instead of simply imitating what's being done by others. This camera is the only product available that addresses a longstanding need, (30 years or more), in the broadcast and surveillance industries for high quality color video capture in total darkness. At $30,000 a pop, you and I won't be buying one, but Canon will sell boatloads of these cameras to those who need them. Also, expect to see that new locking EF cinema mount on all future Cinema EOS camera bodies. Good job Canon!

How does colors look in total darkness?

goshigoo: It is bigger and heavier than Sony A7 ?!

I always think m43 is about portability.........

At this price, wouldn't it better to consider A7 / A7II, which are selling at ~950 USD and 1400 USD only in Hong Kong...

TRK obviously do not have any knowledge at all about lens/sensor combination mathematics and I count his comments as complete nonsense. And repeating the same crap in many treads. This is worse than spam, because you cannot remove this guy with your spam filter. What's the purpose of this? Are you bored? Please make your own tread and stop destroying the rest. So it's possible not to waste my time on your crap. But of coarse you'll risk not to have some to talk to or write to.

Mike Sandman: Sony, if you're listening out there... fix the RAW compression issue via a firmware update and I'll place my order the next day.

I think the review is on target with its complaint. They say you're a "stone's throw" from being fully equal to a FF DSLR. You'll be a hair's breadth away with lossless RAW, or perhaps an option to save as an (uncompressed) DNG.

@Guidenet. Sorry. I don't want to act defensive or even offensive. Just commenting when I read this mount jumping anecdote. From a mount point of view, I find Sony were consistent. Even Minolta kept their SR bayonet unaltered for a very long period from 1959 to 1985. The connections were forward and backward compatible without need for modifications during the manual SR mount lifetime, until they stopped manufacturing lenses for manual focusing (1990's? later?) I also remember, when Minolta changed to the A mount in 1985 and Sony just continued using that mount, when they bought Minoltas camera division in 2005. Even today supporting the older mechanical AF system. The A mount has existed 30 years this year. The (F)E mount is obvious newer like all other mirrorless systems. Regarding IBIS has every Sony SLR/SLT A mount camera this feature - continuing this Minolta invention and supporting every A mount lens ever made. Finally it made it's way into the newest mirrorless Sony.

It looks like an amazing camera!
If Samsung still has the possibility to use Schneider Kreuznack lenses, the lenses also can be superb.

Guidenet.
Please help me explain which mounts Sony has jumped around with? I did only know the mirrorless E and the full compatible full frame version FE and the DSLR A acquired from Minolta.
Did you upgrade your Nikon lenses from the 60's every time Nikon changed connections?
