i wonder why this ret* ard mountmongospokane admin is trying to ban people ?

...

i already have 10 other accounts mongo admin.. you can not ban me.

Good question.  Here's my take:

1) First time poster, eh?  Welcome!

2) You are answering your own question above just fine.  Retrace your steps, sound it out, use your words -- you'll get there.

3) Talk me through your writing process.  Tell me, do you proof your work? 

4) If you have to cultivate ten identities to participate in discussion on the internet, you might want to reflect on why that is necessary.  I'm guessing the admin is not the problem here.  While we're at it, if you have to keep changing your name, who will appreciate the legacy of great posts you've brought to the forum?

If only Canon can output similar or better specs sooner like Sony's mirrorless camera A7riii... I am sure this would make alot of Canon fans happy....
Any input as to what you would like to see other on this smaller FF body....

Do we really need a new thread to talk about an article that is simply a re-post of a CR rumor?

And already discussed in depth when it was posted and 10 times since then.

1) Who said it was going to be smaller?  There's a nontrivial chance we get a full EF mount with an FF rig.  My chips are still on a thin mount + adapter as Canon's more likely move, but there's no certainty there.  One could easily build a rationale around a full EF mount rig.  See graphic.

2) 2018 vs. 2019 depends on what else is being announced that year.  This is a big enough deal that it might get a full 6-12 months of the dedicated marketing spotlight from Canon, so don't expect it the same year as other FF releases, one would think.  So either next year we get an accelerated 5DS/R 2 (i.e. slightly faster than planned, for a host of reasons) or we get a FF mirrorless platform -- I don't think it will be both.

I looked at Sony before buying my SR. Sony looks great on paper, but one look into the EVF and I was done.  I want a clear view of the subject when I look through the viewfinder not a bad television screen. This is not a criticism of those who like it, just a creative personal preference. Just because we can doesn't mean we should.

The only camera manufacturer that has matched a great selection of high quality small factor prime and zoom lenses for its Mirrorless systems is Fuji. Sony has great sensors and almost unmatched image quality but their lenses for the most part  are too large for their camera bodies. Sony cameras also  lack easy to use manual controls and depend on complex multi layer menus to get to basic camera functions. Canon finally has a competent mirrorless  body in the M5 they have not created a high quality native lens selection to support it. Canon DSLR lenses, except pancake lenses are way too big for the M5 system. If Canon wishes to be a player in this growing market they really need to up their game.

That may have been true in the past, but it’s certainly untrue with its latest entries.

The A7Rii for example has a significant number of functions mappable to buttons, and custom menu accessible from the Fn button. A7riii doubles down. If there is a function you can not map I haven’t found it and probably wouldn’t want to*. I for example have the EyeAF function mapped to a back button, and AFon mapped to the center press (i.e. what sets the AF point back to center on canon bodies) of the joystick, so I need not toggle anything, and if I’m not using EyeAF I need not lift my thumb after selecting a point. I have a dedicated control for each exposure component, including exposure comp  (which I don’t use). I have a toggle to change drive mode, a toggle to change metering mode, a toggle for silent shutter, a toggle for exposure preview, etc. They also added a custom menu (like canon’s) to dump other commands to.

The ergo could be better (taller grip, more spacing to lens mount), but controls aren’t so much a weakness as they are a selling point. In my experience it is unmatched, but I’ve not used a canon newer than my 5d3.

*I wish I could put ISO in the rear dial, but it’s doable on the rear wheel.
