Abu Mahendra: A FF Canon RP costs less than this.

@BazzzH We aren’t talking about MF, we are talking about M43 and 35mm, and the difference between those two sensor sizes is huge. It’s about equal to the jump from 35mm to 6x6. So by your logic, you think a 6x6 sensor is only slightly larger than a 35mm right?

tkbasic: The fact remains, professional sport photographers want DSLRs and are more comfortable with DSLRs. At the 2020 Olympics over 90% of the cameras used by pros will still be DSLRs.

And this camera is a great example why. It has better ergonomics, a better grip and better controls than the mirrorless competition. Even video is head and shoulders above what one competitor offers.

This won't be a homerun for Canon, more like a grandslam.

@RubberDials how many threads are you going to spout this absurd nonsense in? Bottom line is this. If the a9 is so superior in AF tracking, why isn’t it dominating every pro sporting event? It’s not, you won’t see more than a couple while the 1DX still dominates. Bye,

Dexter75: *Sony a9 II has left the chat*

@armandino So? Ive owned multiple cameras from Canon, Sony, Nikon, Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus, Hasselblad and Leica. Ive owned more cameras in the last 5 years then you have owned in your entire life Im willing to bet. I just sold my a7iii and a6400 a few months ago and thinned out the heard because Im just not using them. Im a pro photographer for 15 years, not a hobbyist and I dont need a bunch of gear Im not using laying around. So you're dead wrong with your assumptions.

@RubberDials Thats neat. The A9 II can only do 10fps with its mechanical shutter, the 1DX III can do 16fps mechanical shutter and 20fps mechanical in live view. The 1DX III will shoot over 1k RAW photos before it hits its buffer, the a9 II can only do 300. The 1DX III can also do 5.5k 60p RAW 12 bit video and 4Kp60 video at 4:2:2 10-bit in Log, the A9 II can’t do any of that. Shall I continue? This thing wipes the floor with the a9 II lol.

@armandino Why don't you go ask all the pro sports shooters why they use the 1DX cameras over Sony cameras. Sony doesn't make a pro camera, they make hybrid cameras for enthusiasts and hobbyists.

Its amazing with class leading tech, the best DSLR on the market and then it turns into a really good mirrorless camera with the mirror flipped up. Should be a great camera for nearly anything you shoot. I dont need this camera at all but Im excited because this shows Canon isnt going to mess around in 2020. Some of these features are a preview of what we can expect in the upcoming 75 megapixel Rs and the R Mark II, two cameras I will definitely be interested in. 2020 will be a huge year for Canon.

KZ7: A beast of a camera, built for a purpose. Those that need this type of build and specs will be well served by it. As for the rest of us, lets hope some of this trickles down to the type of cameras we can use, sooner rather than later.

If even half of this stuff makes it to the 75 megapixel Rs and/or the R II, they will be the best MILCs of 2020.

@BazzzH Slightly larger sensor? a 35mm sensor is a TON larger than M43

(unknown member): Wow!!

Canon now sells close to 40% of all mirrorless cameras in Japan!!!! Sony fell to 26%. Ouch.
Why did this site leave that out? The article is hilariously biased. They ignored the bigger story about the COMPLETE mirrorless market and sales from BCN

Thankfully its' been pointed out BCN showed Sony's overall market share is falling while Canon's continues to climb (funny how DPR ignore that part of the story).

Canon is now up to almost a 40% market share for mirrorless! That doesn't include DSLRs where the past they've held a 70% market share. Sony fell to about 26% for mirrorless which means closer to 15% overall for ILCs.

Here is the link people have been sharing to the COMPLETE story.

@T3 No. Its more like Sony fanboys, who have to gloat about a minuscule 2% lead in a tiny country that is reporting on half the sales of only 10% of the camera market who are the desperate ones lol.

@T3 It’s been pointed out over and over again that that BCN chart is pretty much meaningless. Its a report on a tiny segment of the market, FF sales only make up 10% of the overall market and then that’s just sales from a few stores in Japan, big deal. No one has been gloating about Canon dominating Sony in sales since forever.

Canon takes forever between FF DSLR releases and they only have two rather recently released FF MILC. Sony releases new FF cameras every year, sometimes several of them. Easy to see why their sales rose. Let’s see what happens to that tiny little 2% lead Sony has in FF sales next year once Canon has more FF MILC bodies. Bet Sony’s lead evaporators quickly.

@T3 That list is mostly APS-C cameras. 17 of the top 20 are APS-C cameras, that's why no one cares about sales in Japan from the few stores BCN reports on except for Sony fanboys. I noticed you completely ignored the rest of my post, the REAL camera sales, not a tiny fraction of sales in 10% of the market in a one small country. Canon actually increased their market share while Sony dropped. Here it is again in case you missed it...

"The story is perhaps rosiest for Canon, whose 40.5% market share represents an increase of 3.9% over 2017. Meanwhile, its closest competitors both saw market share drop, with Nikon logging 19.1% (a decrease of 2.7%) and Sony at 17.7% (a drop of 0.7%). Fujifilm, meanwhile, increased its market share by 1.3% to a total of 5.1%, and Olympus saw an incremental improvement of 0.1% for a total global market share of 2.8%."

@T3 The a6600 and a6100 have been total flops too, so what's your point? No one cares about Japan, they are a tiny country. Lets see some global sales charts. Oh that's right, its all Canon with Sony falling back even further.

and its been pointed out that FF camera sales only make up 10% of the overall market and then factor in that BCN is only reporting on a few subset of stores in Japan. So Sony is leading in like 3% of the overall market and even then, its by a razor thin 2% lol. Its completely insignificant to anyone but Sony fanboys. Canon still dominates global camera sales and mirrorless camera sales in Japan.

wats0n: The numbers are quite puzzling to me, especially when online you see people constantly selling their Sony gear and switching to other brands after several months.

@JPatrick Its currently the 5th best selling camera at B&H and was out of stock at several big online stores with the instant rebates going on. Its selling just fine.

@jay-A Outdated DSLRs? The Canon 1DXiii is going to be better than anything Sony has on the market. You'll see it all over the Olympics next summer with maybe a couple Sony cameras sprinkled in possibly. Looking at the charts, seems lots of people want Canon mirrorless. The EOS Kiss M cameras are all over the best sellers charts in Japan, the R is inside the top 5 and the RP inside the top 15 best sellers at B&H. So there's that.

@T3 Thats great, at least Canon and Nikon users have that choice unlike Sony users because Sony's DSLRs and SLTs failed miserably. So they are stuck paying thousands for mirrorless cameras, sad.

@T3 Hardly. That list shows how insignificant Sony really is in the big picture and why they are getting hammered in global camera sales, where Canon still holds a massive lead in marketshare. There are 7 Canon's in the top 20 to Sony's 3. Heck, there are more Nikons on that list than Sonys. But hey, congrats on that win in the tiny, 3% of the market with FF camera sales in Japan lol.
