Welcome to the "Apple rules everything" world. There are plenty of people in it. For the rest of us...well...we can complain and say we won't give them our money for it. About all we can do. Or just give in and buy one, which I won't do.

Pretty cool but not a lot of details - or non from what I can see - on how it works. I picked up from a forum on their site that it take LiPO batteries, indicating it's an active system of some kind. Any idea?
EDIT: OK I see from some of the other comments that the active part is for controlling the pan. Neat ... is the stabilization purely mechanical then?
I think I'll wait for the Chinese to clone it for $1500/$750.
Try one more thing, locking the focus on fast movement such as birds in flight. I think there you'll find the SX50 might not outperform the 5d3. How was the lighting as well? Good lighting makes a big difference. Almost every camera takes nice shots with good lighting. It's when you've got complex lighting or it starts to fail, you'll probably see the SX50 being quite challenged.
The light was crap for the Robin shot (iso 1600 and 1/160) and dim for the brick wall. A 7D suffers at 1600 iso. Most of my photos are not of birds in flight.
I have spent weeks doing AFMA on my very expensive lenses and the 5DIII and 7D, and the 7D focus is erratic. This cheapo is spot on focussing every time.
CF > SD
C'mon. Stop supporting CF tech. SD is catching up in a more reliable and convenient package and on top of that its less expensive. At the current speeds they both are way passed practical speeds from what current cameras offer. Let CF die...
My d30 is CF only and I need to support CF until another format like XQD is adopted on canon. SD really sucks on the mk3.
Haha I see I just want camera manufacturers to stop CF slots. It'll save them space for other electronics and it'll make our end a lot easier when all cameras have the same standard and computers can easily take SD.
“We expect to have our camera on the market well before the Canon 200-400 f/4 IS lens is released"
Even for an April Fool's joke, that could very well be true. ;-)
I have a mamiya rb67 too. My most preferred by far.
BUT I did purchase it, and at $125 (see other thread) it's a great value.
My mother wanted a bunch of old slide scanned and I went thought all the costs of me doing it and paying someone. The best deal I found was to rent a nice one. Borrowlens was by my house, so i just picked it up and had it for like 3 days. It was a long week days to get them all done. But It was only like $50. So for the price it was a good choice.
