Mark my words: the next Rebel will feature an 8-12 mp rear-facing camera for taking selfies while taking portraits of others. "This is what I look like when I'm taking photos!"
There appears to be no cute shorthand or portmanteau for "photos one has taken of another person." Othersies? Someday we will have to have a word for it.
Amazing to me that people take speculation on a rumors site as fact and then express anger toward Canon because the rumor was wrong.
The so-called "year of the lens" was always completely speculative. People shouldn't believe everything they read on the internet.
According to the Wall Street Journal DSLR sales fell in fiscal 2013 by 10%. Pocket size point and shoot cameras by even more and DSLM (mirror-less) cameras by only about 3%.*emphasis mine
All of this is in part due to smart phone cameras of course.
And a pony. No pony is a complete dealbreaker.
I think when I offered advice, I started out with ,
"Hi I'm sorry to intrude, but I notice you seem to be battling with the camera for control of the flash? Would you like a little tip to give you the upper hand?"
It seemed to work, a little lighthearted humour seemed to work, of course the pop up flash is probably the easiest subject to tell they could use a tip!
I'm glad to see that some of you would offer unsolicited advice, I know if I was struggling and someone offered me advice I would gladly accept, I doubt I would ask for fear of them being unappreciative of the interruption!
Random speculation on my part: I wonder if a higher than expected MP count could be somehow related to some successor to the dual pixel AF system?
yes, Canon would be smart to also sell a CAMERA to go with this "kit lens".
For the U.S: Canon might not be selling this lens AT ALL.
If I were heading up Canon USA and I KNEW an M with a DPAF sensor was coming, I'd hold off releasing this lens. Then, when the new M with DPAF hits, I'd release it and I'd also release this lens and the 11-22.
