JanMatthys: Folks ask yourselves, how many amateur vlogging videos have you watched? how many of them actually any good? Everybody's vlogging ain't nobody watching, I'd rather spend $1,200 on a used D810 which will blow the doors off this RP-thing, but I guess people really want to make crappy videos that 99% of the population will not watch.

But then you would be departing the cult of Canon and if you have awakened then clearly you wouldn’t go to another fumbling dinosaur.

Here is hoping the RP gets a high score and gold rating.

It would silence all the Canon fanboys who think dpreview artificially gives Canon lower ratings.

At the same time it would enrage them because it scored higher than the much more expensive R.

In reply to:

waldoh: I don’t know anything about the lens on the Q (is it a true Leica? Or is it a Panasonic with Leica writing?) but the value doesn’t seem horrible for a Leica.

Any high mp mirrorless body will set you back between $3k-3.5k. A high quality wide angle lens will also cost at least $1000-1500. The Leica tax seems pretty under control here.

Sure if you compare it to it’s closest rival(s) the value isn’t great, Fuji X100F or Sony RX1Rm2 but it’s double the resolution and sensor size as the Fuji, and is guaranteed to be faster/more ergonomic than the Sony.

Does it have all the Lecia characteristics that the MF lenses do?

Sigma size with Leica price... the “best” of both worlds. 😂

notme2012: Why doesn't either model have the multi-angle live view screen? Kinda being cheap?

Official reason: it’s more fragile than an articulating screen.

Real reason: to protect the gh5 line.

Cam Eralens: Olympus, Panasonic, Nikon, Canon, and Sony are working on this. I am sure Fuji will too. in two years they will all be as good as anyone needs. Sony used to have the worst focusing, and now better than most.
I am sure everyone is reverse engineering each others code.

I still think DFD despite being behind today has the most promise and brightest future though (sensors are cheaper to make too).

I fell for the bait lol.

He’s just a m43 troll.
In his mind m43 strengths are IMPOSSIBLE to “reverse engineer with code” but everything that APS-C/FF/MF is just “code” and Olympus/Panasonic could do it if they wanted to. Such logic, much wow.

Just like Fuji fanboys, short people tend to be more aggressive.

Incoming “over compensating” comment. The typical response of a cornered TSB (Tiny Sensor Boy). The reality is FF users are under no illusion that FF is the best at everything, we know m43 has the best IBIS and the best video options due to the relation between sensor size/data throughout and processing power. The opposite cannot he said for m43 and Fuji fanboys overly aggressive users.

Unfortunately this is wishful thinking, if Olympus, Panasonic or any other brand could just “reverse engineer” code/hardware then every camera would have had dual pixel AF from Canon, the $3000 m43 Olympus would have Sonys latest AF, and the Panasonic FF would have every technology in existence given its price point and size.

Your basically saying in time every manufacturer will be able to match every other manufacturers features related to “code”? and at the same time saying hardware development is easier than the “code”?

If this was true, the camera industry has been around for decades, why isn’t every camera within 1% of each other in terms of specs/features/code/hardware?

LessMirrored19: best prime lens : sony
best zoom lens : tamron E-mount
best compact/fixed lens : sony
best entry level ilc : fuji
best midrange ilc : sony
best high-end : fuji

isnt it worrying that there is no canikon winner ?
or photography has changed ?
may be the D6 is Nikon's DSLR era swan song. just like the F6 of the film era ?

Great summary. Both of those companies invested early on in mirrorless and are now reaping the rewards while the 2 sleeping giants are learning it’s not so easy to just walk into a new market.

In reply to:

worldaccordingtojim: What feature creates the extreme vignetting wide open?

The huge mount clearly gives an advantage for vignetting right? Oh it doesn’t...

What about nice round bokeh balls without hard edges? Oh it doesn’t have that either...

It’s a Canon so it’s probably really affordable. $2300...

So they must have invested into making the lens really small, compact and light for a mirrorless system. Nope...

Since the body doesn’t have IBIS, all the EOS R lenses probably do have IS right? Nope...

Hmm...

CANON Revolution!

😂😂😂😂

In reply to:

Thoughts R Us: This is an interesting quote: 'One thing that is very clear [...] Canon has invested very heavily into developing the lenses of the R system. This level of engineering didn’t all happen in the last year, they’ve been working on this for quite a while.'

One, it means that Canon has been developing FF mirrorless for a while; they were not ignoring innovation or market trends, as some accused them of doing. They simply were taking the time to get it really right. Sometimes people think tech companies can conjure up all of these miraculous products overnight, as with the snap of a finger.

Two, it means they are taking their R system very seriously, and this will only mean other impressive RF lenses and higher end R bodies in the near future.

Three, what Canon and Nikon have done is create mirrorless mounts that set themselves up for the future and as time goes by we will see their advantages emerge moreso.

If this is what you believe, how do you excuse the clear mistakes and downfalls of the EOS R?

Link | Posted on Dec 13, 2018 at 20:04 UTC

Nothing new here, Canon lenses have always been fantastic.
Everything has a balance which I guess is why the bodies are pretty mediocre.

Canon would do well as a third party lens manufacturer.

In reply to:

PascallacsaP: If you correct for market share, Fuji X-T3 is the clear winner.

How would you compare market share of a Sony and Fuji? What are the metrics?

Does APS-C and FF really exist/compete in the same market?
Are we blanketing the mirrorless market to include all sensor sizes even though clear differences exist with each platform?

I understand what your trying to convey but Fuji cannot be the victim in this situation. They absolutely dominate the mirrorless APSC market, and maybe even the overall APSC market.

The way I would read these results is, Sony is king of FF mirrorless, Fuji is king of APSC mirrorless.

Like last years A7R3 vs D850 poll, this is the one to watch.

Can Fujiboys yell loud enough to overtake Sony?
Do Canikon owners hate Sony so much they throw away their vote?

FYI the 45mm GFX lens was released in 2017, not 2018.
