5D IV "long in the tooth" LOL! wow. You're right. It would probably hold you back. You should absolutely go buy the Leica.I've chosen to stay a Canon shooter but I need another body NOW. Choices are: (1) buy a 5D-IV which is great but long-in-the-tooth; or (2) wait for FF ML or new 5DS-II or Leica compact FF ...
I'm the same - exactly what I'm looking for .... Im keen for something small but lack of weather resistence is my main concern. I really like the tilt and swivel screens as well.A new M5 with weather resistance and uncropped DPAF 4K and a swivel screen would be welcome. I'd have a hard time not picking one up.
First of all, I'm really sorry you can't get USA prices in the UK. To make it worse, we usually don't pay any sales tax either (or VAT). And we have Greentoe and CanonPriceWatch, who usually can match gray market prices from authorized Canon retailers, plus no sales tax. Does that make it worse for you? Anyway, I was responding to a post that said Canon will have a hard time (selling cameras) this shopping season. My point was, no they wont - if Canon is competitive with Sony at the same price points, how much more so at lower ones.Since when has ebay been any mark of product value? 5DIV prices have hardly shifted here in UK for 2 years which suggests ebay, even at those prices, is no threat at all so they do not need to drop prices.
And it has done for what, 7 years? And Sony has still hardly made a dent in its market position globally. Considering the number of times this has been mentioned I find it astounding that people able to work a compute cannot understand one thing: statements like yours prove that the spec sheet is not the main buying driver for most people. Sure, some will be turned but they are clearly in the minority.
Canon's position is that they're about to sell less FF ILCs than Sony and Nikon combined.I was thinking more that they 1.) don't have a competitive FF mirrorless (sony), and 2.) they aren't even teasing or hyping one up (nikon).
Overall sales figures aside, I'm not sure ignoring a market segment is a good idea (if that turns out to be what they're doing).
Possibly we can give Canon a bit of credit here. Canon is a more conservative company than Nikon and certainly more conservative than Sony or Fuji.
Why are you here? I'm surprised you haven't bought Sony yet. No, not a Sony MILC...Sony. The company. After all, between gambling and the stock market your clairvoyance should have made you richer than Warren Buffet married to Jeff Bezos. Buying Sony (or Canon, but why would you want them) should just be pocket change for you.Canon's position is that they're about to sell less FF ILCs than Sony and Nikon combined.
Fixed this for you, Neuro
How about this? You stop posting made-up sh!t, and I'll stop calling you out on the fact that your posts stink.reported for totally unnecessary personal attacks..
