ARRI is not Canon's biggest obstacle. CANON is Canon's biggest obstacle. There is still a huge demand for film and Canon don't make any film cameras. it's that simple.

Zeiss is releasing two more Otus lenses, 85/1.4 in 2014, followed by a "wide angel"/1.4. Having seen the exceptional performance from the 55/1.4, these may be very difficult to resist ...
LOL ... we are really waiting for that ... made by Zeiss!
I've known a few wide angels, but I prefer the thin ones. More likely to be made in Budapest than by Zeiss
Eehhh ... That´s the thing about language, especially when it´s not your native tounge. There are always double meanings and room for interpretation
Norway (and maybe also Sweden) had a Honda called Jazz. In all other countries they were called Honda Fitta. Which for most people is OK. But for us it translates to Honda The Cunt, so they renamed it Jazz
Yes ... I understood that it was a typo - angel instead of angle. I'm a non-native English speaking person and face such issues plenty of times.
But just couldn't resist commenting on the wide-angel
i'll be honest..
I too am going to get the A7R. Simply because it is what i have been waiting for in a long time.
I'm a Canon fan and i have tons of Canon glass and accessories etc..
But i always thought the weight of the 5D3 was a little too much for me and since i'm not a professional, i don't "need" a professional camera do i.
I have since also made the decision to switch to Sony. I love my 5D3 and all my L glass but somehow the A7R with good zeiss glass…i couldn't see a reason why i needed to keep my canon gear.
I am in fact going to sell away everything and move to Sony by next year once the zeiss 24-70 is launched
Noting against Canon, but i think they are indeed lacking behind in the mirrorless market. I have the M, it's a joke..and with nothing new anytime soon, i can't wait…
Yes i know Canon has something planned, new manufacturing proces, new sensor etc..but by the time they release all that, the competition is yet again few steps ahead..
