Agreed - my apologies.  Still irked about not getting the MP-E I was promised.

Was there supposed to be a new MP-E?! I must have missed that one. Love the current version, but I wouldn't mind an update  :-X

No, the Canon Store botched my order for a used MP-E - sent only the hood - and refused to honor the order.  No new MP-E in sight, as far as I know.

I wish Canon's R&D department could move out of some Mom's basement and talk to people who buy cameras.  In case they haven't noticed, the children of the army who defeated the Empire in WW2 (aka Baby Boomers) have a lot of cash, but we're getting tired of carrying big heavy cameras and lenses just to do what Sony users can do with a lot less weight.  We have money to spend, but we're not going to hand it over in response to half-hearted efforts like the M5.  Those that followed the M5--the M6, M100--would be laughable, if they weren't such really sad products.  Come on, Canon.  Get with the program! 

Just wondering if you have ever tried the M5 - or if you are just another typical complainer who reads spec sheets and reviews and then decides Canon sucks because that is the thing to do.

I tried the M5 and think it is an excellent camera.  I also own the Olympus E-M1, which is also excellent.  So, if you are not needing a FF mirrorless, there are some really good choices out there - including Canon's.  The only mirrorless cameras that I thought were well below par and were returned were the Sony A7 and A7 II.  So not really sure what you are complaining about.

Thanks, I've been wondering how Canon has managed to sell more ILCs than any of their competitors every year for the past 14+ years, and you've provided the answer...   ::) ::) ::)
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

My fervent wish list is a Canon 6dmk3 with a sensor with better dynamic range, and two SD recording slots. These features were rumored to be part of the "new" 6d2 but alas were not. The "new" 6D2 has bombed with the reviewers  and is to say the least, not selling well because it has less dynamic range than the old 6d which, believe it or not, is now selling better than the new 6D2 on BH. The only decent Canon full frame is the 5d4 which is selling for the same price as the class leading Nikon 850 which is the most advanced DSLR on the market today.

Thank you for another troll post.  How much is Nikon paying you?

Since we’re doing wish lists, here’s mine (keep in mind I’m a macro guy :) )


- Mirrorless full frame pro body.
This is something that I’m sure a lot of people want, but the weight savings would be nice over the traditional DSLR. I don’t really care about FPS, but some decent DR would be great. From samples I have seen of the 5D IV, I think it’s sensor is perfectly adequate. The ability to use an EVF while also having a flash mounted would be essential.

- MP-E 180mm f2.8 L .5x-5x
This I think would be an awesome design, however I am no optical engineer, so it may be out of the realm of possibility. So often I’m faced with the dilemma of choosing between a 100mm macro and the MP-E. I think this would be a great range for the hardcore macro guy, as it would allow a little greater working distance.

- An MT-24EX with an overall smaller design.
The current design is pretty heavy. No real reason to improve the heads or anything because I’ll just cover them with diffusion.

Again, my wish list is all about a lightweight run and gun rig. Well... except for that lens :D

I'm no fan of the 6d mk2 given what it could/should have been, but I haven't seen anything about it selling badly - does any one have any links for how it's doing?

simple: a decent, very compact and affordable Canon mirrorless FF system.  :)

I want the EOS-M lineup expanded and a new M5 Mark II.
- evf greater magnification
- liveview shooting EVF mode
- 14 bit continuous
- expanded AEB to 3,5, and 7 shots
- quicker AF-servo
- put back in 10 second timer, # of shots that they removed from M3,M5 and M6

what everyone else wants but I frankly don't care.
- auto-iso improvements
- articulated screen, or tilting up
- fps increase 2-5 fps
- 4k video

I also want three constant f/4 lenses 10-20, 15-45, 45-135  (these may be hard because it seems like canon has a fairly strict 61mm diameter to the EF-M lens design).

If we talk about what gear should Canon introduce to meet my dreams, its:
  • 24-70/2.8 L IS
  • 50/1.4 L IS
  • 200-500/5.6 L IS for about $3.5k

If we talk about gear from existing offering I have on my wish list, it is:
  • 5D Mk IV
  • 85/1.4 L IS
  • 50/2.8 L TS-E
6D | 16-35 | 24-70 | 70-200 | 70-300 | 150-600 | 17 TS | 24 TS | 50 | 100 Macro | 430 EX II

My lens wishlist would be...
500mm f/4 DO IS USM around the $7k range... However, that 200-500 f/5.6L IS USM for about $3.5k that Ladislav mentioned above would be awesome too!

My body wishlist would be...
Full frame EF mount mirrorless in a pro body size that has at least 50mp and a min of 10fps. Dual CFast 2.0 card slot. I'd gladly repay you Tuesday for this body today! LOL
