cant wait to see it put head to head with the canon 16-35 mk2 f2.8

Sigma Rumors is calling $1099 and $1999 respectively. Find out for sure next week I suppose
I'm currently reviewing two EF-M mount lenses from third party manufacturers: Tamron 18-200 VC and Rokinon 12mm f/2. They are both very good lenses: the Tamron does a little bit of everything quite well. But the little Rokinon (manual everything) is a true treat. It is basically a better version of the 14mm f/2.8: less distortion, similar sharpness, and can use traditional filters. I LOVE it! The only thing holding it back is the basic limitations of a crop sensor (as compared to a FF sensor).
My full reviews will be live in the next couple of weeks.
I'm glad to hear of further development for the M. It definitely has limitations, but it produces surprisingly good images. I actually used a 60D for a recent review of a crop sensor lens and was surprised by how much less "clean" the images were compared to the EOS M images. I haven't used a 70D/7DII yet, but I suspect the images from the M will be closer to the 70D than the 60D (I do anticipate the 70D/7DII having the best IQ of the three).
It's not that people disagree...it's how they disagree...well, how a few specific people disagree. I've been compared to Mikael a few times, in thinly veiled contempt...a guy who came here for no other reason than to spew anti-Canon hate about everything Canon. Yeah, that's a bit insulting, and I took offense to it. I've never spewed anti-Canon hate...just a distaste for their sensor IQ.
Whatever. You guys are sick and tired of hearing it, I'm sick and tired of debating it. I won't be bothering anyone anymore with my opinions. That should make a few of you ecstatic.
wow that came out of nowhere looks interesting be nice to how it stack up against the 16-35 f2.8
Yes, that will be interesting!
Not to forget price point and will it be image stabilised?
Remember when phones resembled bricks? And then they slowly became smaller and smaller until they could fit inside a matchbox? And nowadays the trend seems to be for ever larger phones - reverting them back to brick status. I love progress!
definitely fake. :-)
But it shows really well, how freakin' easy it would be to build a worthwhile EOS M3.
@Canon: stick the darn 70D innards except mirror and OVF into an EOS-M2 body, add a great EVF on top, slap on a nice fully articulated LCD to the back and make the handgrip so much larger, that it will fit a regular LP-E6 battery for 500+ shots a charge. Sell @ 699 body only and 799 with kit lens and still make more profit per unit compared to any Rebel and 70D, since it is so much cheaper to build than even an SL-1 mirrorslapper. Significantly less labor cost, since many steps in assembly, calibration and QC are eliminated from the manufacturing process, once the fickle mechanical moving parts and separate phase AF and viewfinder prism are gone.
How are you feeling?
I feel excited/fine because it's exactly what I expect from Canon and it doesn't obsolete the cameras I have :->
