According to the video its got the 80D sensor.

I´ve been looking out for a light second body to haul about with the 7D2 and also for longer hikes with the Mrs. Cant seem to leave the house without a 400mm lens of some flavour ( mostly the 100-400) and it all gets a bit heavy on a 30Km hike especially on a strap ready to go if in the unlikely oppertunity presents to shoot a bird. Buying into a second system was just too an expensive option for the rare occasions that it would be used over the 7D2. This plus adaptor looks to fit the bill. 15 -45mm for the landscapes (or get the 11-22 but have got the 10 22 efs which is pretty light) 60mm efs macro just in case and the 400 F5.6 strapped on for the wildlife.

Also the idea was a second body to get myself to shoot more of the intersting parts of the local forests while out with the bigger guns which I hardly do as am to lazy to change lenses or when I do I miss some sort of wildlife. This in a small holster and the kit lens would seam to fit the bill.

I think this camera will sell well to people like me looking for a smaller second body to carry about who are invested (Heavily :))into the Canon eco system especially if you accept there are going to be limitations like AF speed, handling and whatever gets noticed after it comes out but with the sensor being the 80D one the picture quality shoud be as good as any of the current crop options from Canon.

I'm thinking about. I contacted Wex for a part exchange quote on my M3 that is 9 months old and "as new", they're offering £180!

The a6000 at half the price is still a superior camera. And the a6300 for the same price, blows it out of the water.

Gee, this camera is designed to be more versatile for travel and portability while still having some great functions with interchangeable lenses.

Some will be comparing it to the new 5D-MK IV shortly with all its shortcomings listed.

Cmon....:rolleyes:

I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, I just think a system like this makes more sense with primes and I found the girl looking through the viewfinder about 2 inches from away was funny. I'm actually very much interested and excited about much of whats going on with mirrorless. I don't see me lugging a big heavy DSLR around much longer.

Looks to be a nice camera, but I don't wanna use an adapter. I would like a camera like this with an EF or a F mount. First one will get my money.

Something cannot blow something else out of the water, if the consumer wants nothing to do with Sony products. ;)

I have zero desire for an Axxxx whatever, it won't fit in my photographic biosphere.

So what out of these two lenses would you have as a day to day and walk around lens?

18-55mm or 15-45mm and why?

The 15-45, because 3mm on the wide side has a more pronounced difference visually than 10mm at the long end, IMO.

Neither are really good walk around lenses though, at least for my use. Something like the 18-150 would be better.

Yes I am leaning towards that one I think, just trying to get my lens list together. I love the shots the 55-200mm takes as a telephoto..I may get 18-150 in the kit.

What about if you were getting the 11-22mm first?

What is the consensus on the 11-22? How would this stack up to a 17-40 on full frame or the 10-24 fuji? I would be most interested in this or a prime in this range.

I would also like to know the lenses people will be getting for their complete set with this camera. ONLY EF-M lenses, out of the 7 lenses available what would you have in your kit, or all of them?
