This is sad.

More PowerShots?

Does anyone else not think Canon is fully asleep at the wheel?

I'm a 1DX owner for goodness sake. Where is high MP? Where is innovative mirrorless? Where is any innovation at all?

Please spare me the "it's coming" hooey. There is very little coming. They are in turmoil internally selling into their installed base and ignoring the competition.

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough.  If you can't wait, feel free to switch to Nikon.  You might want to try 6D first for the meantime.  It's not as high-DR/MP as the D810 but it's the best Canon can offer if you're looking for IQ/MP.

The pricing for the SX520 seems over priced compared to the competition.  The Panasonic FZ70 has a 20-1200mm f2.8-f5.9 lens vs the SX520 with 24-1000mm f3.4-6.0.  The FZ70 also comes with an EVF and 1080p60 video, both of which are missing on the SX520.  The FZ70 came out at the same list price as the SX520 although you can get it for less than $300 now. 

Both of these models seem like they are too little and too late to market.  This doesn't bode well for the SX60.

Even the SX50 outperforms FZ70 continuous AF.  Why won't it bode well for SX60?  SX50 is even sharper.


Even in the noise department, your FZ70 pales in comparison.

Still my most loved lens...   ;)

There goes Canon again beating their chest.

How many video cameras were Canon at FIFA this year? Oh... NONE :P

Who's one of the MAJOR SPONSORS of FIFA?  ::)

Except for some unnatural colors (purely subjective), I love most of the shots.  Inspiring as you said...   Thanks for showing us.  It's time to pack again my gears.  :)

That last thing you need if you are under water is a zoom. What you want is super-wide and stabilized and low noise.

Waterproof doesn't mean it's only for underwater.  There are lots of scenarios where it's very useful.  That said, it must be as small as the D30 series...

Thanks to those who replied to my question, it makes more sense to me now, and I appreciate your insight.  Sometimes it's hard to understand why people enjoy a certain thing when you much prefer the opposite, and is why I was curious and asked.

To bdunbar79, any sense of entitlement you perceive is your own creation, because there is none.  I apologized in advance in case anyone misjudged my tone, and explained why I prefer a text version, and was seeking an explanation "from the other side", so to speak.  Apparently you just enjoy causing arguments, of which I will not give you the pleasure of.

No Mayo, where did I ever say I was not trying to draw attention to myself at work?  Not being able to watch that long of a video does not equate to trying not to draw attention on myself.  I explained numerous times how I wanted to find out the reasons for a video instead of text.  Obviously, I prefer text.  When did it become wrong to try to see the other side?  Where I come from, that's admirable, not arrogant.

Or simply, you can ask RLPhoto for a transcription or text version.  Then everybody's happy. Everybody got his own preference.  Just my 2 cents, if you don't prefer videos, then just simply don't bother with the post and move on or ask if he's offering the same review in your preferred format.  You're clearly inviting arguments when you write your heavily opinionated statements there. ::)

damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4 :)   

i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?

I think if you're happy with 24mm, it won't.  You'll only buy this lens if you want something wider than 24mm.

I've used 500D previously and now a 6D with my 100mm F2.8 macro usm non-L.  I still prefer 500D if there's good light.  I'll only use 6D if there's not much light.  500D image is still sharper than a cropped image from 6D.

So, I wonder if someone else is posting under the same "Dilbert" name...if Mr. Dilbert has multiple personality disorder or if he considers it acceptable social behavior to make rude, denigrating comments to insult the abilities of others.

Yes, I have a multiple personality disorder, so what?

That's nice.  Then they'll never believe you.   Well your opinion will just be an opinion, never a winning argument then.  The well is poisoned.   Nobody will ever drink from it.   ::)

the 6D is a better camera even it costs more than the 5D3

6D is cheaper.  It's around 1 L-lens cheaper...

You can write an OS script to transfer all your files automatically so you won't miss anything.  Just one click, all your files are transferred.  I can write one if you want one.  :)

17-40L and 24-105L.  They're my most loved lens (aside from the 100mm non-L USM macro F2.8 and the 50mm F1.8 II which I love more).
