Just out of real interest in photography: can you tell me why you do not completely switch to ML cameras?I already have an R5 and I have no intentions of ever giving up DSLRs.
I just prefer an OVF.Just out of real interest in photography: can you tell me why you do not completely switch to ML cameras?
Yeah, the price tag is a bit funny, given the fact that DSLRs should be more complex in production with the mirror box and a separate phase AF system. Okay, in Canon's world, other than Pentax, there is no IBIS included in the DSLRs, other than in an R5/6.Really good summary, technically. Same opinion here. But you forgot the price argument for both bodies and lenses
Thank you, now I understand your comment better. Hm, a last generation DSLR with a smart hot shoe for an additional EVF - interesting idea...I just prefer an OVF.
My other mirrorless camera is a G9.
I mainly got the G9 and R5 for their superior image stabilization.
Canon and Nikon could have put IBIS into DSLRs but they just decided not to.
I have not used enough mirrorless cameras to say DSLRs are better.
The R5 is the best mirrorless camera that I ever used and nothing about it makes me want to give up DSLRs.
I do love the compact size so I would not sell it if Canon were to come out with the 5D Mark V but I would buy the 5D in a hot second if it had a flip screen and IBIS.
Now that Canon has a smart hot-shoe, they can make an OVF for DSLRs and give us the best of both worlds.
I still have a Rebel camera (Thanks Magic Lantern) but for small travel cameras, I would buy an EF-M camera over an APS-C DSLR any day.
The one big advantage of an OVF is that it can be removable.
Exactly my thoughts, again.Yeah, the price tag is a bit funny, ...
But I guess Canon simply tries to lift the price level with a view on the fact, that the ILC FF systems will always be a special market, and the compact's market is eaten up by smartphones. ...
I hear this a lot but a proper EVF is a pretty expensive piece of equipment.Yeah, the price tag is a bit funny, given the fact that DSLRs should be more complex in production with the mirror box and a separate phase AF system
Well it didn't look like a joke especially the "Canon never used to be this slack, so many pulled fw updates last few years. " part which does have some truth. To their defense they try to fix their mess and sometimes introduce new features.It was a joke
