Nikon's timing is pretty awful: to release the D600 product advisory so soon after announcement of D4s? Sigh...

Canon Lens Milestones as a graph, using March 1987 as zero
I'm sure a photographer was using similar sarcasm back in 1977:
"But…but…the Konica C35 has autofocus!… Why can't these top photographers understand how bloody important that is in making better images?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"
43 cameras is not a large sample size. Also the 13 unknown cameras don't appear in the % chart and therefore skew all the results.
No dice. It's my idea and Canon (or Nikon) ain't gettin' it for free.Actually, there's a very simple solution for this problem as stated by you ... only I don't work for Canon (or Nikon), so they can go figure it out for themselves ...??
And second place is still second place, as in there is another camera that is more popular.
Still hardly ever see them out in the wild. No one I know owns one.
You could have been a bit more tactful with your put down. I hardly stated any numbers or facts to begin with, and yeah I should have researched it and added that it was my opinion that it seems a less popular option.
The EOS M isn't that popular in Japan either, but at $300 it is at least affordable.
Is there a 16-50 inbound? That could be what I'm looking for.
The EOS 7D Mark II will finally be unveiled and should be in your eager hands by the fall of 2014. It will set a new benchmark in the APS-C segment...
A lot of new lenses are coming, the biggest being a replacement of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS. We’re told that could be announced as early as March, but availability will not be immediate...
We’re told to expect a lot of exciting products throughout 2014 and that the Canon customer will be happy with the direction of the company.
Personally I think the G1X II is awesome (the name is pretty rough though). According to the DPreview preview, this camera has the most luminous lens/sensor setup of any large sensor compact (.7 EV better than the Sony RX100 II).
24-120 f/2-4 with IS is really in the ballpark of what I had hoped for on this camera, & ~12MP is a good sweet spot too.
The price will come down over time (you'll just have to buy a viewfinder on ebay or something if you want it cheaper). If you have one of these I don't really see a justification for carrying around a non-FF DSLR unless you need super-long or super-wide lenses, or a really fast portrait/low-light lens. The price would have been lower if they hadn't bothered with EOS M.
IMHO the execution of the EOS M system was pretty poor; theyd've been better served by further promoting the 100D/SL1 and coming out with a couple of compact EF zooms for it (the compact primes are finally coming along nicely & hopefully we'll see 50 or 85mm primes with IS soon).
Given that CR and NL both questioned the legitimacy of the G1XII image with the external EVF, I'm wondering about how good the "fake" detection is in various people.
If this is correct it is really good news, it is a real MkII, wonder why they didn't call it a D5?
