We are going to see a lot of people holding a mirror in front of them and start winking in order to take a selfie.

If I see some weirdo with glasses winking at me constantly, I'm going to whack him or her with my selfie stick.

There will be a lot of snapshots of the palms of hands.

Looking at the samples, the 18-135 lens is mediocre at best, which is what I found about the original 18-135 STM lens as well: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57741555

Howard: Motorola smart phones are junk. I'm saying from experience (owned 2 Droid phones which I sorely regret).

@Lars: a few years back, the original Droid with the stupid keyboard, then the Droid something without a keyboard which I thought to give it a try. Regretted both times. I don't think I will ever buy another Motorola.

If the put the built-in LED light on an updated version of the EF-S 60 macro lens for APS-C DSLRs, that would be a very interesting product!

In reply to:

Howard: It's a good idea. Too bad it is for the EOS-M system and the focal length is too short. A 100mm or even 50mm for the DSLR would be nice.

@ RedFox: I know who the M system is for (including, but not limited to casual users), but you missed my point. My point is that the build-in LED ring light is a good idea and should be adopted to more macro lenses (presumably with shorter focal lengths for the weakness of the light), mirrorless and DSLR alike. And I've no doubt it will.

Howard: Now both of these and TIME magazine can happily go into history's dust bin.

@Tungsten: was that really necessary?

This is an innovative, path-breaking, trail-blazing holster style camera bag that looks just like all the other holster style camera bags. :D

Greg VdB: Since it's an RX10 II with a longer lens, not replacing it, surely the logical name would have been RX10 II XL...
(leaving room for a future version with an even longer lens, the RX10 II XXL, and so on)

Sony is not a T-shirt shop.

In reply to:

BarnET: hey Canon why do you settle for this
This is after all your new Eos T6

18 megapixels isn't the best stuff
Why not 24 just to show some love?

Even the video is looking poor
While you guys used to own that floor

Canon please Can't you see?
This looks older then a CRT TV

well i have something to confess
I am off to Sony at least they impress

life is too short to waste time and wait.
So off to E-mount which is looking great.

Excellent! This alone justifies this lame release.

Whip cream on leftover, not a smart move circa 2016.

In reply to:

Howard: Really? Canon? Why?

Please do not lecture me on economics, I actually have a Ph.D. in Econ. But that's not the point. Point is that it's cheaper to just sell the T5(i) without having to changing the manufacturing process. At this point releasing a 18MP cam is like putting whip cream on leftover ; it's hurting Canon's reputation more than it generates revenue.
