They said they wanted to sell a higher proportion of full frame lenses that can be sold at greater profit. My guess is that most all of the "cheap" lenses will fall into what used to be the midrange, except for the 24-240 kit lens. So instead of 500 or less, it'll be around the 1k mark (like the f4 kit lens for the R), then around the 2k mark (the f2.8 trinity), then the specialty lenses at the 3k mark. Primes will probably be somewhere below all those marks. I'm guessing the 50 will be slightly more expensive than the 35mm.If the rumored specs and prices are correct, I may be be tempted.
But where are the cheap and lightweight lenses???
I think all of the future canon cameras will have this. I wouldn't be surprised if a ruggedized version is on the 1dxr when it comes.Those specs are almost perfect. I prefer no side-articulated LCD (something like Panasonic S1/S1R or fuji X-T3 would be perfect, but a simple tilting LCD is good enough), but at this price point I can accept it
Sure, but using it on a tripod with L bracket is only a small part of use, and folded flat with it's screen facing out really isn't any different than right now without a flip out screen. If this becomes a standard thing with flip outs on all future canon cameras, some manufacturers of L plates will come up with different solutions, and on a deeper body it's easier to make an L plate that is just shifted forward a bit on the side to allow the flip screen to be angled straight up at 90 degrees (to keep is "level" with the new orientation while on it's side). We might even see a screen on a 1dx that is just as tall as it is wide to account for this. It really depends if Canon wants to more or less keep the same dimensions .I hope that it won't be the case. Side-articulated LCD is great for video, but completely useless on tripod with L-bracket.
