Jhaakas: Sony makes sensors, cameras, professional video cameras, lenses, TVs, projectors and more importantly they are in the movie business.. so probably the only company that has full breadth of the industry.
Canon comes close as they make their own sensors and cameras/lenses and are also in video cameras .
They are not going to sell their top of teh line processors as OEM to others!
So a good move....

Yes, seems Sony has a good headstart.. and all their A/V systems tioe together, although I would say they are not so much in prime audio.

Mortal Lion: Ricoh is clearly betting on Canon and Nikon abandoning DSLR's so they can swipe up the people who do not want to convert to mirrorless (Heretics :p)

Its more that customers will abandon DSLRs and companies will have to follow.

Phone cameras are really the cause of this disruption. Few weeks ago, I visited a popular summer lake spot, full of local visitors, plenty of scenery, water activities .. a paradise for photographers..
But the guess what, I was the only one there holding a dslr.. and felt being odd.
Now of course I continued and used my camera..but clearly camera market is dwindling

This is a nice move. It shows APs forward thinking and glad they see MILC as the future. I like Sony .. they have the end to end components.. from sensors, cameras, lenses to displays/TVs...
While other big 2 are still bouncing back and forth between dslr and milc, glad to see Sony lead the milc scene.
Oly and Fuji sure have the capabilities in milc, but then they omitted the most important Full Frame offerings.. :)

"I love the uncertainty of film, knowing that the picture I set out to get might not be the picture I got, but it might be even better. And nothing can top the raw thrill of realizing that quick 'grab' shot turned out to be the best of the roll."

==> well, how is this uncertainty enjoyable when you are taking wedding photographs.. or rather for which occasion is it ok to let the photos come out bad?
All these things listed above are very much available in abundance with digital photography, and without the anxiety and cost of film.

Jhaakas: Having looked at several new MILC FFs that have recently been announced, somehow I feel my trusty K5II still delivers exceptionally..
This is 7 years old now and I am hoping the new one would be a significant upgrade.. and much lighter and smaller..

Thanks @klimbkat .. yes the having same battery is advantageous for multi bodies. I just use one so never thought of this!

Batteries are relatively cheap if you go for the generic brands

Goodmeme: Haven't tried the mode dial yet, but it looks nice at least. I think the only advantage - other than aesthetics would be having more custom modes, whereas there may be some downsides with usabilty unless the dial had a clicker and always the first four clicks were the same A M S P modes in consistent order, sort of like a Philips Hue dimmer switch perhaps; that way you wouldn't need to check the lcd to select mode.

Incidentally, for the 5D4 I would like the option to display histogram in image review, along with a large image. I hope they add this in the R models. Currently the 5d4 will only do this with a tiny image. The histogram is too big relative to the image and means you have to cycle through viewing options rather than just use the same one all the time.

@SteveAnderson.. thanks for the nice info ... yes will wait to see the R6.
Once they put IBIS in body, then Canon also needs to come up with non OIS lenses that are bit less expensive.
I like the Canon's 24-105/f4 however it is pretty thick compared to the Nikon Z6's 24-70/f4

IBIS is probably what is holding me from getting an EOSR,perhaps they willcome up withe EOSRii that has it!

Looks promising...
The EOS R sensor is already at par in terms of ISO performance with the Nikon Z6 and Pentax K1, Sony A7iii.
This one in R5 should top them..
The R had the IBIS missing, this is a good welcome addition to R5.
Next is the price.... that will be a deciding factor. A few hundreds over EOSR will be ok for me,however if it is in double, willhave to pass on......

Jhaakas: Why would they not put in IBIS when they had it in Z6!!
Probably due to the existing lenses being OIS... not sure if it would interfere

They were able to put it in Z6 so space is not an issue. It is already designed so will be just an adaptation in dslr.
Strangely, they dropped ibis from z50 as well...

And all the angel funds would soon be lining up to fund this great idea!
Really.. is this an invention?

Dslrs are not flying overhead
Besides regulation is for air traffic and not the camera

The resolution of 21 Mpix, what are the pros of having a lower resolution as we see most other cameras going upward? Is it for high iso IQ?
