    Personally, I'm more excited about the potential lenses! That 28-70mm f2 sounds like fun :)

    No mention of IBIS is a bit of a disappointment though... Even though it's not a necessity for shooting, it's meant to be a modern tech camera to compete with Nikon and Sony, so why would you omit something as useful as that?

    Anyone know what that weird panel that’s got the red line pointing at it in the photo of the back of the camera is?

    Due to the lack of joystick, I was wondering whether it was some kind of hybrid touch panel that would let you swipe around AF points and other things with your right thumb. Can’t find any info on it.

    Good luck going from left focus point to the right :) you'll be pressing it all day! .. I think the 5655 is a typo.

    how do you make a EVF with <100% coverage, why? Not like there's compromises for packaging a pentaprism/mirror.

    New range of lenses (why)? will it take the 'old' EF range?

    Are they deliberately segmenting their range again? why throw away decades of EF...

    It doesnt seem to do any one thing well or better than existing DSLRs, not ideal for wildlife, not ideal for video, touch screen / swipe makes it hard to use underwater, only 1 SD card.
    Hope they bring out a better model soon

    They won't be doing away with it. It will be via an adapter like Nikon, Sony and Olympus do currently with their old glass.

    I’m pretty excited by this announcement as I’m still heavily invested in L lenses still. Just wow on the lenses too

    The most crucial part of this announcement, and the one that will have the most impact on this mount, is the fact that they have once again decided that they are not going to publish the information of this mount to 3rd parties. I mean if the cropped 4K was not bad enough. I guess we are not going to see a RF mount Tamron 28-75 any time soon.

    Sony licensed their mount details to Sigma but the E-mount Art glass doesn't focus quite the same as Sony/Zeiss lenses. So I wouldn't be too upset about third parties being forced to reverse-engineer.

    It will definitely slow them up a bit though :(

    Forget Sigma Art in E mount. These are not really a good example as they are not designed for E mount. Think Tamron 28-75, which works great, and to some extent the Sigma crop E mount lenses.

    I'm not happy with the 1.76x crop for 4k video and the lack of IBIS.

    But the colours and the lens lineup look pretty good.

    Not a canon shooter so not affecting me but still interesting
    Seems like its a "do it all" type camera (master of none) - they have put their time into the lenses and adapters which are actually interesting
    No IBIS is probably the biggest one - and then no IS in the lenses
    Lack of joystick would be a pain

    AF should be good, especially for video but the crop factor will kill it for many

    I think like the Nikon series, its not aimed at pro's, and not aimed at competitors users - its designed to keep their existing customers or provide them with an option
