Pressing in on the focus nubbin brings up 6x or 10x zoom with my Leica SL. Genius! I shoot manual focus fairly often and this is essential...
Growing up in the Los Angeles Metroplex I can roundly say that Compton, Hawaiian Gardens, Skid Row, East LA et all, (which I frequented often), and west 7th street in San Bernardino were not safe to hang around at all with anything of value on display. Hard to run away and conceal with a tripod in hand. Las Vegas isn't much better.+1. I lived in LA for years, and it was by and large quite safe. But hanging out at night in the dark corner of a hillside or empty park to capture freeway light trails or some cityscape I would not dare attempt without a friend with me.
So I often made do without the tripod. I'm not saying IS is a tripod in a pinch, but there is no denying it can help.
The EOS-R has that as well.In the Panasonic range, if you have it on MF, then as soon as you twitch the focus ring, a magnified inset appears in the EVF showing an area covering the focus point. I find that more useful than zebras, and it is programmable (magnification and whether the inset appears at all). No need to touch a different button.
There is nothing wrong with Canon giving me a camera that is both a high MP body (in FF) and a 7D mk II replacement (in APS-C crop mode). I will be willing to pay for it.High MP body? EOS RII? Nah
I'm actually hoping one of the new bodies is a genuine replacement for the 7D mk II. Come on Canon, lets see a pro sports body with the MILC magic! Gimme that 7D replacement so many people have been begging for and watch it sell out fast!
If Canon wants to build a good-better-best platform like Sony and Nikon, in which there is a clear single top dog model with best res / speed / features, withholding IBIS to only that price point would be the total villain move.
I'm not sure Canon will be that foolish. Potential super-spec 60 x 10 camera possibility = low, but possible. But IBIS only on the $3500 camera while it's everywhere at Sony and Nikon? I just don't see that happening.
I think IBIS will happen and it will happen across the price point spectrum in FF over time.
Its having options at our disposal that we never had before. I guess whats nice about lens IS is that it can be turned offAt some point, stabilization doesn't matter if you are trying to stop the motion of your subject. It does't do any good good to shoot 1/30 sec if you subject requires 1/640 - 1/1000 th to stop motion. In addition, on subjects impacted by wind you will still enough shutter speed to freeze motion.
There eventually will come a tipping point that what mirrorless has to offer is worth at least a partial migration in the form of a second body.
For 1-series users, I'm assuming it's all about that glass -- there will eventually be enough great/unique/modern RF lenses that folks leaning on their 1DX3 shutters take notice and get in on RF (EVF, battery life, warts and all).
The question for 1DX3 users is: are RF superwhites a must for leaving 1DX-land? Or will just better versions of the f/2.8 zoom trinity or a staple standard prime be enough for you?
I have no idea which part of the specs you assume (32mp/12fps/IBIS) is incorrect (in whole or in part). It may be that the new camera will receive (2) CF express card slots and not just one. It could mean that it indeed would have video RAW, as opposed to the original release that said it wouldn't. It's all speculative.
Speculating that it's be a 40mp sensor and 10 fps doesn't add up for me personally. Not if the EOS RS verson is to be around 60-75mp. The 32 would still give it a little bit better low light success as compared to the 40, IMHO.
I don’t understand what you’re getting at.Then the resolution, DR, refresh rate, and power consumption of the EVF matter, as well as eye strain after its prolonged use.
While everyone is aiming high, it might just be lower than the RP. Possibly one entry FF with RF mount, recycled sensor and a few less tidbits than the RP and the other, a 5D styled all rounder. 30-40 MP, two mismatched cards, pretty good weather sealing, nice grip, moderate fps, an improved EVF over the R, expanded AF points, maybe taking a cue from the 1DX3 yet not a full magic AF trackball. I think it's a bit early for trickle down hardware.Something like 90D mirrorless about US$1000?
You weren't paying attention. He's talking about the EVF, not the live view on the back screen.I don’t understand what you’re getting at.
The 1DX3’s performance in live view looks awesome. A mirrorless camera is pretty similar to a DSLR in live view mode.
An EOS R camera with the same specs as the 1DX3 in live view mode would be really good.

That said, Detroit is a whole other world and I have visited there too.
