feilong: lol NIkon Z7?? really? They should just make the Sony A9 even though its been out for a while. Professional camera's are having an off year because they are released on a slower cycle.

Photoman: A f0.65 lens is waste of money, unless you need to do ultra low light video...but why?!

but if the lens doesnt open any wider than f5.6 for af so how can it auto focus in video ?

Mateus1: That's true A7III has better tracking AF compared to Z6 but Z6 has better EVF, has true WR, better built quality, better Video and IBIS, not overheating, and very good AF excluding AF-C, also better menu and much much better ergonomics... all theses are more importatnt for me, so if I have to choose now one of them I would take Z6 for sure.

it would be last on my list because of the non instant image review. THE most important feature of ANY mirrorless.

The title says it all. I upgraded to mirror less from dslr not down graded.

Ebrahim Saadawi: RAW video is an amazing feature and would sell me on the EOS R. It would spare us going for cameras like the tiny chip BM pocket 4K for getting raw, here in FF with DPAF and a lovely EVF. And what's more exciting is that we don't know where the UHS-II controller is capped at, so it can very well do 4K RAW!

We will also get the intervalometer function Canon sorely missed. And a waveform monitor like the GH5s. Focus stacking, remore motion/sound trigger, unlimited recording, crop marks, all are coming.

The moment I see it working even in a nightly build, I am ordering this sucker.

unlimited recording 4k FF sensor ;-) were is the fan going ?

Donald B: my study, our photography club regular members have dropped from 60 to 15 in the last 5 years.

our club has been doing photo walks for 10 years. I think the main problem is members have moved from enthusiast to beginners . and the enthusiasts are leaving ,sick of to many beginner workshops imop.

Healthy buffer ;-) 3 frames per second ;-) my 3 year old em52 can shoot till the card is full at 5 frames per second with the uhs2 card. Why is the canon so slow ?

PaulSnowcat: It took 10 years for almost everyone to understand that a comfortable camera cannot be a tiny camera. Now we finally have Fuji H1, Panasonic G9, Olympus OM-D E-M1-II - truly comfortable cameras for normal long shooting. 10 years to return to where they all started - normal DSLR-like ergonomics :)

does it shoot 60frames video ? stream live to a uhd monitor for 13 hours without over heating ? shoot stills at 1 sec hand held ?

what an stupid response. the thing about mirror less being small is everyone can have their cake and eat it to. for pro work I mount both grips onto my em52 with extra battery in vertical grip ,then when I go to a ballet concert or strings music concert I take them off place a tiny 1.8 prime on and use silent shutter mode to take totally discrete photos and video. try that with your bulky dslr ;-) no body even raises an eyelid.
