    An EF & RF mount hybrid mirrorless camera in the works [CR2]

    I can't believe that folks are falling for this marketing ploy? It's up there with Musk's hyperbole and the truth is Canon is getting their socks knocked off for being way behind both in terms of AF for DSLRs and in the mirrorless arena. FWIW, before all of the fanboys attack, I have Canon...

    Industry News: Sony officially announces the α9 II

    Had they accomplished this with a 40+ mp sensor it would have been an industry slayer. Must be dual sensor construction or data processing limitations.

    Poll: Are you going to be preordering the Canon EOS 90D or Canon EOS M6 Mark II?

    Unfortunately, we don’t know the specs of the af system apart from 45 cross type af points. If this is simply an 80d af system, it’s no deal.
