It is GOOD to have the Canon M5 officially announced.

Pricing is GREAT, availability not so. I do want the 18-150mm. Maybe I will get a small, ‘cheap’ pancake in November and wait patiently till December.

A Nikon 1″ On Viagra — Never Mind The Phallic Overtones, I Would Have To Get One.

I would NOT be able to resist this — and I know myself better than anybody else. That reach?

I have realized that I love my 15-day old Nikon P900. Today is day 15 and that is crucial in that I bought it from BestBuy rather than Amazon, BuyDig or Cameta. They have a 30-day return policy; BestBuy but 15. [Actually I took the precaution (always the belt-and-braces person I am) of buying it with my Discover card. They do offer a 90-day $500 guarantee.] I have NOT returned the P900. I am keeping it. One the easiest cameras to use that I have encountered in the last 2 years. Easier than your average compact, point-and-shoot. Yes, I will write a detailed review soon. I have taken 2,812 ‘keepable’ pictures in those 15 days; at an average of 187/day.

A P900 with a 1″ would be WONDERFUL and it would be in the same class as my old Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 and the Sony RX10s that I evaluated ad nauseum and never bought. The redoubtable FZ1000 has a 16x zoom. This Nikon puppy would have 4.6 times MORE. 75x. Not as much as the 83x on the P900, but 75x with a 1″ sensor would be formidable.

Yes, I would get this Nikon the day it is available irrespective of what other cameras I currently have. Most likely by then I would have, at a minimum, the P900 and a Canon 80D or M5. I would get this and give away the P900. Smile.

Over the last 3 days I have come, mainly due to reading all the rumors about Canon’s ‘mirrorless‘ M5, I have come increasingly convinced that Canon’s ‘Dual Pixel AF‘ is what I really need — given my preference shoot ‘Live View’, i.e., LCD, due to my aging (and poor) eyes.

I have 90% (which is not a high percentage for I) convinced myself that I should just get a Canon 80D as my main camera for the next 12 months.

But, deep down I am such a proponent of ‘mirrorless’. It is ironic and interesting that the Nikon that I opted for and currently use, the Nikon P900, is a ‘mirrorless’!

The M5 if it delivers on the rumored specs and does come with a 18-50mm kit lens will work for me. IF the kit price really is $1,198 I will be laughing all the way … That, per what I have budgeted, will be a JOKE. But, I will not complain.

So stay tuned. I am fairly sure that there will be a Canon M5 or a D80 in my near future.


>> Also please refer to this post, Sept. 12, 2016, re. the direct controls on the M5 opposed to the D80.
