It's not a matter of 'better' or 'worse'. It's a matter of having the right tool for the right job. A hammer is not 'better' than a drill; they do different things.

I have my 1D2 and 5D2 for shooting fast moving objects (1D2), portraits, and events (5D2), my X100 for street photography, and my X-Pro1 for everything except fast-moving objects.

I wouldn't want to lug a 1D2 out for street photography, the same way I wouldn't want to use an X100 for motorsports.


I happen to like having the same size camera for every job! That way I know what it's going to do, and if I have to go to my back up camera, which would be the same as my main body, everything is the same, so it makes the job so much easier.

Hey this is my opinion, and I don't care if anyone else agrees or not.

Also, I have nerve damage in my hands, which causes them to shake. Smaller cameras accentuate this. Larger cameras are much easier to balance, and hold steady. At least for me they are.

Besides, I eat my wheaties, I'm not afraid of a little "heft" in my camera body.


Photographers do it in 1/1,000th of a second...but the memory lasts forever! ;)

horrible positioning on those stereo speakers. Didn't canon learn from sony and lumix (panasonic) that if you are going to have stereo mics, put them in the middle of the camera otherwise the hand will block the speakers while doing video.

Why do folks get in to a bit of a huff about this stuff?

I like bigger cameras as well. They are easier to hold; and easier to shoot (for me). I also like having a small camera option for when a big camera just doesn't work (which is quite often for me). Right tool for the right job, as someone else pointed out. We don't need to take sides on big vs small and fight it out.

No, we certainly don't.

I'm not fighting, I'm just stating MY opinion, just like everyone else is.

What's the big deal?

I just don't happen to agree with most of the others. That's all.

Besides, a little disagreement now and then never hurt anyone. It's fun. It livens things up.

But I guess everyone wants to have one big group hug while we all sit around a campfire and sing, "Kumbaya".

Canon releases are a very in-depth study in gearhead psychology. :lol::lol::lol:

I guess some people like cameras more than photography. :p


Sometimes, when I read arguments, such as, "Why would a professional want this POS?" or "It's too small for my sausage fingers!"

I think... Do you ever see people complain that a small city car doesn't have 4WD and 6 feet of ground clearance? How dare Kia make a small car for a target market! I want 4WD and refuse to just buy a real 4WD truck!
Likewise, the same would be to complain that a 4WD truck doesn't get the gas mileage of a small Kia.

My brain just can't comprehend what goes through the minds of some people. :lol:


With that said, I think this might be a hit for Canon's target market, which isn't people looking for 6 feet of ground clearance in their camera. It's not for me, and I'm not going to complain about it either. :p

I'm sure they'll expand it. There are already multiple product lines of SLRs after all. This is just the beginning.

I've been waiting for a Canon mirror-less for a longtime. But, if the rumored photos are true, I'll spend twice as much and get a Sony NEX-7. The "Canon-mirror-less" looks like a toy. Canon should have jumped pass all the competition and come out with a Leica-like FF mirror-less.


Too much stuff, not enough shooting time.

Anyone know what price point this may come out at? It doesn't interest me too much, but I'm thinking maybe for my family members- especially if they can put my lenses on if they want to play with something different

I don't doubt that they'll do that - but I think the priority modes will be menu-based, just not available on the dials.

This is just one product. It doesn't have to be the whole line. Nex has some bodies very much like this and yet you are saying they are the one to get.

Canon is smart about business. A Leica like FF mirror less would sell in such small quanitities that they would have to charge Leica-like prices to make money. That only works if you are Leica. I mean look at the Fujifilm, it's $2k and it's only APS-C. A FF version would likely be in the $3-4000+ range.

I kinda don't think that will be the case, based on history which they never hide those vital stuff buried in the menus, even if it's a touchscreen. But of course never say never...
