both are nice. But I do not like the empty space on the right side (of the image that you have posted as "orginal").. I myself would crop that out. OTherwise, the flipping of the image is an interesting touch.

I owned a Nikon FM2 back in the 90's and kinda like the retro look of the DF, but for a working camera, I'll take my 6D any day. I'm not trying to impress anybody with the look of my photography equipment.
I know what you saying. But I will be honest and tell you that every time I buy a new camera or lens I like to look at it, feel it. Should I be ashamed of myself? Am I too much of a child?
When I get a new car I do take it for a drive with friends to the ice cream shop. Am I a bigger child for doing that.
When I buy a new lens I move the focus/zoom ring, see the writing on it, see the contacts, even look through the lens without mounting it on the camera. I guess I am hopeless....
sub]*) No, the Laguna Seca one has reflections. I don't like those. Grab a rubber lens hood from ebay, put it flush against the window, and presto - gone are your reflections![/sub]

.......On another topic, a mother said to do photos and videos of the children, and someone recommended Canon 24-70 F2.8L + 70-200 F2.8L. For me, seemed a snobby comment, or sadistic.
I think that companies should listen to their customers to not be beyond their expectations and make products that will be a failure (EOS M anyone?). Consumers should also listen to the companies? Of course you do! If a company demonstrates not believe in the future of a product line, we must be careful not to buy products that will serve only as a paperweight. To this day I wonder why stopped to manufacture DVD VIDEO RECORDERS household. Yes, now you can record video to hard disk for notebooks, but is not as immediate as practical and record your favorite programs directly to DVD. I know many people who have MINI-DV tapes, HI8, VHS, and can not find a device to copy to DVD. There is demand, but manufacturers have abandoned these consumers without offering a BLURAY VIDEO RECORDER that could satisfy them. Knowing that APS-C sells much more than full frame, does not seem a good idea to let your consumers abandoned. If Canon does not, sigma will do. Call me stubborn, but it is not true that one day all APS-C users will jump to full frame. This is not reality in my country, and in almost every planet. In the USA full frame is the rule, and Japan mirrorles is the trend, but the rest of the world APS-C is used by both advanced amateurs who prefer lighter equipment, and professionals who do not earn $ 100,000 per year....Canon wants you to buy an FF body, and you should listen...
Correct, no matter whether one needs it or not..... go full frame...
Sigma makes a sweet selection of UWA for the APS-C format. People knocked them before they started up with the 35mm and new makeover but in the UWA offerings they have been very well received. When I used my 7D's the 10-20 and the 8-16 were perfect. I love my 15mm Rect Fish for the FF, using it on both the 1DX and 5D3.
The original question should be modified to etc. etc......"I think canon 14mm F2.8 (about U.S. $ 2,360) is not appropriate for users of 70D for example. The Canon 24mm F1.4 (about U.S. $ 1,750) also seems disproportionate to APS-C cameras. And the wonderful TS-E 17mm f / 4 is not really very appealing to APS-C cameras, mainly because it costs $ 2500. I'm sure users of SL1 would appreciate lenses like EF-S 22mm F2, or EF-S 8mm F2.8 (rectilinear).
This camera, at this price, is just an EPIC FAIL.It's only one model in their line-up. Even if it doesn''t turn out to be a huge success, good on them for trying. I like seeing camera companies doing new things, even more-so when they know that it won't appeal to the mass market. And Canon's no stranger to this. Just look at the 60Da. Despite all of the doom and gloom about DSLR makers, to me the 60Da suggests that Canon does look to niche markets and tries to supply what people want.
Someone at Sony's opened a good bottle tonight.
Nikon have done exactly the same. They've identified that a lot of people want simplicity, and this is their take on it. And I think it should do well.
I'm also surprised/exicited to see that everything (including ISO) is controllable manually (if using a lens with an aperture ring). While I'm not really a "retro" design person, I know I prefer direct access dials to buttons, LCD screens and menus, and I suspect I'm not the only one. Another big positive for this camera.
