macro capability, tilt-shift lenses
Added, and maybe a valid point atm, though I originally left it out because you can also screw these on an eos-m. My point is rather "for what is a $3500 camera good instead of a sub-€1000 one", so it's not just about €100 p&s.
With EVF's and LCD screens, I feel a little removed from the experience.
LCD - yes. EVF - no, not if it's a good one you cannot tell from a OVF except for the battery drain and the option to add useful information on the fly like focus peaking....
You ever see a person take a photograph with an iPad?! That is the worst thing. Ever.
Actually I frequently see tourists taking pictures with their iPads and oversized smartphones in Berlin, even today in the Zoo. The only explanation I can imagine is that people either don't realize what possibilities a decent camera offers or - that's what the post is about - it doesn't make a difference for the pictures they take. We should do a "blind test" comparison poll - iPad vs. 5d3 for web-sized shots :-)
Better, yes, best, no considering the recent developments - that's why I didn't include video in the list.
Filters. Cpl, grad nds etc for landscape. Guess you could do that with a p&s but you'd look a bit silly!
Indeed - that's why you're probably just as old-school biased as I am, but does it matter how it looks if it gets the job done and you cannot tell the result from a dlsr? The only reason to look "pro" is if clients pay you more.
@ Marsu - It sounds like you are talking to yourself into 6D and some "L" lenses for 2012
You're actually reading my posts :-) ... it really still depends on the 6d/5d3 price after 2-3 month, the 6d just went *up* €100 in Germany *above* the Canon retail price :-p
