Sigma 35 owners all yawn in unison!Small yawn.... The Sigma is so sharp that it scares me sometimes...so (Like the Canon 24-70mm or the 70-200 f/2.8 IS etc),...the bokeh is not all that soft...but I don't care because of the price and the quality all around of the Sigma....I am thinking that the bokeh could be better on the Canon like Markoe hopes above...but you are talking at least twice the price with the current "L" lens pricing...so that is a big no for me... the weather sealing is not a deal-breaker for me either....That is "if" it is weather-sealed...I am guessing it will be.
Sort of like camouflage flashlights
I certainly had hopes that Canon would go quite a bit farther with the M system, I own the current version, not a bad Camera, but not a good camera either when I look at what it needs to be a reasonably developed back up to my 1Dx & a possible replacement for my 5DMK III, the current M doesn't do it.
But the Image files aren't too bad from the current M, absence of a viewfinder is a big issue for me after having the current M, in day light the screen is almost useless.
So, my a7r arrived 3 days ago, still trying to work through the Menu system, not as bad as the Nikon System, but takes a while to work out.
Nice size, has a viewfinder, takes some getting used to but I like the viewfinder on a7r.
I was concerned after reading reports that the auto focus would be quite slow, but I'm using the a7r in dim lighting, very dim, and it focusses just fine quick & accurate. Files look very good to date but I'm yet to really put the is camera to the test considering the choices of Lens, well, make that choice, in Singapore the only Lens available is the Zeiss 35f/2.8, which is a lovely Lens, 55 arrives sometime late December.
Once I get a WA ( 15F/2.8 ) & a Macro ( 100f/2.8 ), I'll try & get the a7r into a Underwater housing, I have high hopes the a7r could replace my 5DMK III for underwater Imaging.
Like the Camera so far, has a load of the things I had hoped Canon might put into V2 of the M.
Image was shot with the M.
Sorry ...but I just have to laugh. No mention of a VF for the new M?
Look...I have an extensive MFT kit to complement my Canon FF Kit... I have been researching picking up an Olympus E-PL5 as a second MFT body.
1. VERY small.
2. Can be fitted with the BEST EVF out there...Olympus VF4
3. 8 frames per second
4. Incredibly extensive small, fast, prime lens selection...(all lenses actually including zooms)
That is just a few of the bests on the M-system..and the E-PL5 is one year old...and I bet that it focuses faster than the new M???
I am looking at all of the other manufacturers...what the hell is Canon doing in the area of innovation?
I think that is a really valid question at this point.
you do realize it´s just a rumor yet?
like my latest rumor.... canon is only making popcorn from 2015 onwards.
why not getting your heartattack when the specs are really out?
Could someone explain this black friday thing?US is a Capitalistic Society.
To the non Americans like me.
Must be something like a sale, US- nationwide.... every friday?
Thanks a lot!
Though I don't like Zeiss
What's wrong with Zeiss?
I always group them with Leica who produces inferior cameras with over priced policy.
But I hope Canon should respond to this like Nikon with their 58mm (and lost unfortunately)
In your post, if you are referring to the EVER-SO-UGLY-AND-PRETENTIOUS 1932 gold-plated Leica that was auctioned off in Hong Kong...it only sold for about $620,000, (estimates for the auction, were at about $1.2million, I believe), ick...I don't get it...I guess it is valuable, but not an object that I would enjoy looking at.
I like white cameras, love them (don't own one at the moment, but I have had two white MFT cameras in the past).
Although the red is a little much..the black kind of counters that, so I think that this is a really smart looking camera.
The renovator in Tokyo did a kickass job on the overhaul....Hey...it is something different!!!!!
No they are referring to this one http://topnews.us/content/259066-leica-m-camera-co-designed-apples-jony-ive-fetches-1805000-sotheby-s-auction
May we never speak of Ken Rockwell at Canon Rumors again.
