I am NOT excited about this camera. I appreciate that Canon is continuing to produce mirrorless cameras but this doesn’t seem competitive against the older Sony a6000 that offers faster focus (how do I know? The Hybrid CMOS AF II system is in older cameras that I have used and reviewed. It isn’t bad but it certainly isn’t as fast as the Sony a6000 or other mirrorless options from Olympus, Panasonic etc.  I also suspect that this is not a new sensor, rather the sensor that was in the Rebels from last year and again, that sensor isn’t bad but it is not competitive with other options on the market.  So what does this camera have going for it? Good question – The Canon name which still means something to some people and it does look quite small but beyond that – not much.

Are you excited?  If you could have 1 minute with Canon’s CEO – what would you tell him?

 I noticed these two hanging out on the floor and asked my daughter to stay still while my niece continued to be a #wiggleworm. Set a slower shutter speed on my #lgg5 and here is the result - Edits in #snapseed
 Today was a #goodday! An hour north of Seattle you can find these Short-eared Owls hanging out. Great testing ground for my Sigma 150-600 vs Tamron 150-600 G2 comparison I am working on. Go watch my insta story to see him blink :) * Captured with the Canon 80D and #tamron #150600g2

  1. This camera can be great with Samyang/Rokinon lenses (maybe also the cinematic versions of the lenses)! What I would say to the CEO? That I’m glad that the mirrorless category started to move and that they have also affordable products … probably… Well, to me, any camera starting from $300 is extremely expensive.
