You are most probably correct. The low sellers will be closed out. I noticed now that Adorama has the EF 400mm f/5.6L on closeout. That surprised me as I would have thought it to be a strong seller because I loved the one I had. I ordered the 135mm f/2L just in case. I won't be able to afford an RF version for quite some time.
Where is this mythical 70-135mm f/2 ?????
I wouldn't understand why Canon wouldn't release a 5D Mark V.
90% of the job is done.
Body and shape : just re-use the Mark IV, it's perfect
Sensor and DIGIC : just re-use the R5
AF : just re-use the AF of the 1D X III or a "lighter" version of it
I'd gladly buy such a camera. Throw at it something unique such as a feature to get rid of this AF micro-adjustment thingy and it's a dream come true.
EOS M lens: I would really like an EF-M 15 - 60 f/4 IS lens with excellent IQ + internal zoom + focusing + 60mm outer diameter (f/4 @ 60mm = 15mm eff. aperture should support this) + 1:3 max. reproduction ratio. Just if it has a length of 100mm + 400 grams. I would pay ~600 Euro without hesitation ...
Technically, you cannot do what you suggest while shooting through the OVF. You have to have a separate AF module when using an OVF.How much light goes to the AF sensor on a typical DSLR? What if you just ditched the separate AF module altogether and used the image sensor for AF, the 1DXIII already uses a CMOS sensor in place of the more traditional line sensor.
Although arguably the new narrow aperture focusing capabilities means you can practicably mount longer focal lengths more cheaply, using extenders or the new budget superteles. It might tempt some people.
Why won't IBIS be good enough for this particular focal length range? This lens would already be humongous and heavy.
Way to just make stuff up.
DSLRs still constitute a huge share of the market.There will not be a 100% migration to mirrorless in a single generation, if ever.
Canon will not abandon half or more of the full frame market, especially in these highly competitive times when every manufacturer is fighting to hold on to market share.
Maybe one of those cool adapters is RF to EF-M? That with a M5mkII might make the 7D crowd happy.
It would have to be an optical solution.Not physically possible. Though the EF-M registration distance is 18mm compared to the RF registration distance of 20mm, the smaller throat diameter of the EF-M mount leaves no room for the lugs of the RF mount that are more than 2mm thick to protrude past the EF-M flange.
Canon had a 70-300mm DO zoom. Don’t know whether or not it was any good, but they did make a DO zoom.
The mirror already is translucent. The AF module sits below the mirror box and there is second mirror behind the main one. Question just is can DPAF work with that amount of light.You need to focus while seeing composing and seeing through the OVF, I think you agree with that. That means that the sensor is hidden by the mirror mechanism. So the light cannot hit the sensor, therefore you cannot focus using the sensor since it's not illuminated by light.
Sony tried the translucent mirror box, but well can't say it was a success. Could they have improved or did they decide not to bother because they dedicated themselves only to the A7 series, who knows...
Just wondering, what is M6 detachable evf flaws? I just sold my m100 and planning to get the rumored m50mii, but i think i will miss m100 pocketable size so I'm leaning to get m6ii
If you use on camera flash, then you'd be left with a decision. EVF or Flash?
