Nokoshita has updated the specs some more. Looks like 4k 30p, full HD 60p, HD 120p for you video folks.

What the f can have 70+ layers. I can't even imagine. I've worked I think up to 12 or 14. But why you'd need 70? You really can't route those signals in 60, or 20?

Limited space, high current, controlled impedance connector farm?

Power plus feeds that need to be isolated. But yeah that is high. My only guess would be something custom for military where you only need a limited amount or maybe some communications equipment.

I have. And I don't. I thought the saving grace was exposure preview. But now that I have the 5Ds...the meter is so freaking reliable that exposure preview seems a minor benefit at best.
I love EVF and they will only get better.

Isn't that just the back end of the lens?

Thanks. I assumed that was part of a deeper lens mount but on close inspection I think your correct. Odd that it's not colour coordinated with the rest of the lens however, maybe it's a visual reminder of the lens type being attached.

  • 最高8コマ/秒(サーボAF時:最高5コマ/秒)
So 8fps normal, and 5fps on servo

  • 背面液晶:3.15型 210万ドット タッチパネル
2.1Mpix touchpanel.

But how many pixels on evf?

Spec sheet says bluetooth. Maybe for remotes?

Also mentions face-AF but not eye-AF.

UHS-I SD card :(

They don't fail at much. Again: 50% global ILC share.

Sony made a lovely little FF mirrorless market out of nothing. Now Canon will take its 50%. It's not complicated.

- A

50% ist still a fail if the opportunity is there to take and absolutely dominate an entire market and drive competitors out of business.

the opportunity was fully there in 2013. canon could have absolutely roflstomped Sony, Fuji, Nikon and the 7 mFT dwarfs back then with a RF mount FF mirrrorfree system and EOS M APS-C bodies like M5/M6/M50. virtually everything we are finally getting today was already invented and technically feasible back in 2012. even dp-af was already implemented in 2013 in the 70D.

I have seen way too little chatter about the fact we have a new 50 f1.2. It’s brand new inside right? Not just a 50 L in a new body? Why so little interest? It might the reason I would buy into mirrorless (along with weight) due to my health I can no longer carry the 1dx2 for more than 1-2 hours...

ouch. 5 fps in servo-AF is on the low side. looks like canon marketing nerfed EOS R even below a mirrorfree 6D ii (6.5 fps) rather than a mirrorfree 5D IV (7 fps).

Nikon Z6 was already criticized for "only" 5.5 fps in servo. lol

but, it makes a usd 1990 price point more likely.

Pfft! Only 5,665 AF points!

;)

-6 EV confirmed, though...


Yeah, Canon even writes in their learning center article that it “potenitally has millions of AF sensors” I guess the keyword was potenitally ... but, it’s a very nice solution to just move the point wherever and not, like Nikon, where you have to scroll through hundreds of points...

In what way is as much market share as all of the competitors put together, not "dominating the market"?
:confused:

"market leader" yes. But they could be at 90% of market. Nikon die-hards 9% and Leica holding the 1% luxury segment. Fuji and Sony having left the market by now just like Samsung.
