Here is my favorite shot of frost on the window that I took long time ago:

Glad to have these insights. Still on the fence between adopting the M3 or abandoning the M system to get a xxxD second body. If Canon would release a down-scaled 17-55mm f/2.8 for M, or a couple more small, fast primes, that might make the biggest difference. Or a compact macro. Much as I like the 22mm, the 18-55 is just too slow; the 11-22 is too pricey; and the 55-200 is physically too long and way too slow (and just about useless unless AF really is worlds faster on M3).
With a tiny body that lacks a truly substantial grip, the handling of any zoom lens (other than maybe a theoretical power zoom) is going to be dicey because the torque applied to the zoom ring can be enough to destabilize your grip on the camera body--particularly when holding the camera out from your body to compose on an LCD. A stiff ring like on the Tamron 24-70mm VC makes it useless in combination with the M. Primes just handle better.
I think I may be convincing myself to bag it and just go with a Rebel T6s (760D).
Another way to think about this:
If Canon can make larger profits with Axis, it will give Canon more money to invest back into their other business areas.
Buy a more profitable line in order to fund a less profitable line is a common business practice.
Too bad Canon has changed again the battery. I own the 550d and have a bunch of LP-E8 but it seems the 750/760d have LP-E17.
No idea what kind of rating they have as a retailer though...
The Nikon D810 is about $3300 now so maybe $3799 MSRP at the most. I think the take rate will be a lot lower if it is more than 4K and 7.5, no way.And the Estimation Oscar
(with absolutely zero authority whatsoever )
in this poll goes to (drum roll please)
"TPhillips63" writing "maybe $3799 MSRP at the most" and
"cycleraw" with "One more vote for $3,799."
After B and H comes out with price of $3,699 and $3,899.
Three cheers !
I don't agree with kphoto99. Purchases of Zeiss manual focus lenses are a drop in the ocean compared with AF, even the most expensive L ones.
Tremendous resolution! No improvements in DR, no improvements on noise, no support for high precision manual focus, due to fixed focusing screen (they put it on the 6D and 7DII, but not on their flagships ), exposure metering is not following AF, no illuminated AF confirmation ... There are some more, but these were on top of my wish list. I got one out of six.
Has not surfaced yet.
Comparing prices for body only options just released ($/£/€)
5DS R 3899/3199/4249
T6s 849/ 649/ 859
T6i 749/ 599/ 799
M3 kit ---/ 599/ 769
Seems like an M3 kit might have been around $729 and body only a hundred or so less, say $599. That's in the ballpark I expected ($499 to $599) for the initial pricing.
Chuck Westfall has insisted that the 5DS sensor is designed and manufactured in-house, but what is interesting is the fact that it doesn’t feature Dual-pixel AF (and neither do the 750D, 760D nor EOS-M3).
I understood that DPAF is part of the core design of the sensor, you can’t just remove it from or add it to the front of existing sensors. Thus, assuming that these new sensors don’t simply have DPAF disabled (why would you do that -especially if you are going to add HCAF, like on the 750/760D?), they are of a fundamentally different design to the 7D MkII.
What a disappointment. So maybe the 750D and 760D won't be available to North America as well, as there is no mention of the T6i to date. LOLT6i and T6s are available both in US and Canada.
Okay then I might just look at the a6000 for my compact mirrorless needs. I just don't like the 16-50 PZ lens...
Or just get the first M for cheap.
