Okay..  Can someone inform me why full frame-mirrorless would be a good thing?  Since I only really care about DSLRs, I don't bother keeping up with the benefits of mirrorless cameras...

If you travel from US to Asia 4-6 times a year, you will see why I want FF mirrorless - travel friendly and cleaner images under low light are the keys of this monster. AF speed is not important when you do landscape and still shooting.

I think they could go faster than f/2 on a 50 for full frame mirrorless. Couldn't they match Leica's 50 f/1.4?

The smartphones with their improving cameras have killed the point & shoot market. It's only a matter of time before they start affecting the low end DSLR market. Some may laugh, but the writing is on the wall. Nokia recently announced a smartphone with a 41 megapixel camera! The line is blurring. Can you imagine what smartphone cameras will be able to do In 5 years time? They will be even more amazing. Super detail. Sallow DOF. Incredible low light capabilities. So canon and the others have to start making the move now.

FF and FF mirror less will be the norm for dslrs in the future.

They will also have to add more social networking, wifi integration to dslrs too.

It's happening folks.

The 50L 1.2 design doesn't seem to have a floating element. Wonder how this will be better than the current 50L 1.2

Better phone editing software has a great deal to do with it. There have been a few shots that have fooled me with the blur tool on instagram. If you compose it right, you can simulate a shot with a fast lens. There are limitations, you have to work with a circle or bar, and you can't adjust the amount of blur. I'm sure they will have a paint blur with your fingers tool soon.

Maybe a 50mm f/1.2 IS?   ;D

I will be buying a 50mm f/1.2 next year sometime probably, so I will be interested in knowing if this new one will be better somehow.  I've used the current 50mm f/1.2 and liked it a lot.

...why dont you just buy a Leica M? :P Flying that often sure is expensive. Getting to the airport and everything adds up.

@ mobiles will kill low end DSLR market


i dont think so unless we can get APS-C or FF sized sensors in the mobile. and full control about shutter etc. and also be able to change lenses cuz thats why u buy a DSLR.

I would buy a 50L II but the FF mirrorless is also very tempting. I still wouldn't buy a first gen electronic product though.
