D200_4me: Settle down kids. It's just a camera. Either you like it, need it or want it..or you don't. Life goes on. I personally love both FF and m4/3. I may buy a Sony FF sometime in the near future (was about to, but something came up so I canceled the order). Anyway, I have a gallery full of m4/3 images from the GH5 I'm extremely happy with AND I love the larger size of the body. It's a joy to hold and use. It's one of the most perfect camera bodies I've ever used with regard to the number of physical buttons, where they are placed and all the other customization options and overall feature set. I haven't found anything yet that left me thinking "Dang...I wish it could..." For now it's me and my GH5 and a FF Nikon Df. Still also waiting to see what Nikon is up to with FF mirrorless. If they wait too long, I'll be a Sony a7 owner.

Had the A7RII for two years now and still don't like the grip, so try before you buy. It goes without saying, image IQ top notch and pretty decent video.

NJOceanView: "...nearly matches chart-topping Nikon.." As long as it doesn't ever match or exceed Nikon, DPR can rest easy.

All those 60+ Mp rumours up in smoke!

Bambi24: the standard windows 10 photo app that starts when opening JPEG / PNG / TIFF and RAW

can:
-crop
-straighten
-change white balance
-change saturation
-change contrast
-change brightness
-change sharpness
-change highlight / shadow exposure
-fix vignetting
-fix red eye flash artefact

it can do pretty much what any casual photographer needs

@Bambl24
Have to agree, it's surprisingly effective.

It's a Trojan Horse, mark my words. All images get sent straight to the Kremlin!

Whoa, not bad, not bad at all:)

Photato: No love for the LX100 though, still under firmware 1.0

And none the worse for it! Still a great little camera.

In reply to:

Martin Datzinger: Many of my personal boxes ticked, congratulations! However, no on-sensor PDAF is a dealbreaker for me. I don't care about video AF, but if LV AF stays as useless as it is on my D810 (and before that the D600 and D7000), I won't upgrade. The nice tilting screen makes this omission only harder to tolerate, as it is an incentive to shoot at other perspectives than eye-level. Undoubtedly a great camera, just not an upgrade option for me.

@lawny13
LOL, you hit the nail right on the head!

I mistakiingly thought it read 'the next Canon DSLR will record 4K 60 fps ;)

mmarian: Completely out of topic but looking at the photo of the camera makes me jellous when looking at the amazingly beautifully looking top camera display when I compare it to the archaic one Canon still uses on their bodies including my 5D4. Their displays have not changed in 15 years!!!

@mmarian
Absolutely agree, rediculous penny pinching by Canon.

AshMills: Anyone else find this touchingly sad?

Yes, but I'm not sure why. Some lost happier times maybe?

Super clean colours. MF delivers, as promised.

james s. kennedy: Of the Influential people in England at that time, Churchill was virtually only one who didn't want to come to terms with Hitler. Hitler accepted the Brits as fellow Aryans. Dunkirk brought most of the troops home, at the sacrifice of nearly all of the Army's heavy equipment. Certainly a profound historical event. But the English Channel is very unlike crossing a river even though it is only about 20 miles wide at Pas de Calais. The U.K. was able to hang on until the US and the USSR were involved. WW2 was the finest hour for all the allies.

Hitler halted the advance of Guderian, partly because Goering stated that his Luftwaffe could finish the job. I was in grade school during the war, and unlike today, the US was totally United.

@James S. Kennedy
On a similar sad note, we did not allow the Polish airmen, who fought and died for our country (the UK), to attend the 1946 Victory Parade. It was decided that it might upset our 'ally' Stalin who had just occupied Poland.

'totally United'
Martin Luther King would have had an opinion on this. . .

Being late to the table is not all bad. Just look how the Sony's A7 series and u4/3 camp have evolved, showing what is technically possible now. Good luck to you Nikon, make it a stonker!

Ron A 19: I've got a 6D and I can say this update looks pretty good. They added a touchscreen, more megapixels, 4K and better AF, so quite a decent update. However, I won't be upgrading because I think the lack of integrated Pokémon Go is a lost opportunity.

4K for timelapse only, I believe.
