Edited: The NX1 looks very good overall. Just the color is duller.

I also love my 35mm f/2 IS lens and am hoping Canon comes out with a 50mm f/1.8 IS with similar IQ and size.
At some weddings, there are so many Canon DSLRs that it's common for wedding guests to ask the videographers to take still photos of them (not realizing they are shooting video). So, as far as I can see, videographers are heavily into Canon. I have yet to see a wedding videographer using Nikon or Sony.
But how long is the lag is between tech development and pros adapting to changed circumstances?
From what I read on the Magic Lantern forum which used to be a stronghold of the 5d2 video revolution, people are either trying to fix the Canon system below the 1dc with raw video or abandoning the hybrid stills/video system in favor of dedicated video gear. Getting a 5d3 just for video is a lot of €€€.
Question how much impact the 7d2 will have as it's good value and hasn't got the moire issues anymore. But the 7d2 doesn't run ML, and you get get the 4k Panasonic GH4 for less money...
when this comes out i really want to try it out with my 135 f2L
If the AF doesn't take much of a hit via the adapter it might be a wicked combo
effectively giving IS to one of canons best lenses.
I disagree because I doubt there are such a lot of "diverse needs". Actually I agree for once with the expert mainstream in the forum here - for most stuff, Canon is certainly good enough. And since they cannot get back behind this, upcoming products including crop will be more than good enough.
Indeed, but for how long. They've already lost the mirrorless market ... almost everyone who wanted mirrorless has switched by now. Who are next? The video crowd, or have they also already gone?
Most of the critical comments directed against Canon revolve around:
a) Dynamic range
b) Pixel count
c) Video capabilities
d) In camera tools
But, with less to talk about on forums, people fixate on tiny differences that are irrelevant to the majority of users. As with any topic, the more obscure it becomes the more intense the feelings are and we see more than our share of that.
I'm at the point where the 5D3 is doing everything I need it to do and getting what I want from it with minimal hassle. The 600rts, the superb lineup of lenses and AF is what keeps me here. If another company did a better system than canon, I'd be there already.
What's wrong with the image?
Slow and finicky definitely sums up a lot of my feelings about it. The handling and UI just don't do it for me along with a few other issues. If any of the a7x bodies handled like my X-T1, I would be much more inclined to give it another go. That, and I would need them to add a 35/1.4 to their ecosystem. As it stands, they have nothing that remotely covers my needs except for the 55 (which is still not exactly what I want).
With the buffer and FPS on the 7D2, there is simply nothing comparable in the class/price range...
5D3: 6.1fps, buffer maxes out at 18 frames
6D: 4.5fps, buffer maxes out at 16 frames
7D2: 10 fps, buffer maxes out 31 RAW frames!!
