I was never able to get Eye-fi to function... in a useful manner. I do, however, like "CANON Connect" for remote operation (through my cell phone). I do wish that my 7D Mark II had a Wi-Fi feature. (Their excuse was it has a metal body.)

Roger Cicala is the CEO of LensRentals.com. He knows lenses and writes well. He wrote these as a pair.

First published was a satiric article comparing lens reviews at various sites: https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/201...s-and-testing/

The second one is serious, titled 'A Reasonably Non-Geeky Guide to Lens Tests and Reviews'. He wrote it because: "And because I get to see behind the curtain of the photography industry I have a different perspective than most of you. So I thought Id share how I look at tests and reviews." https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/201...d-the-curtain/

It's a long piece. He summarized it for three types of buyers. "If youre an intense early adopter,..." the summary is 2 sentences. "Or, be a fanboy,..." the summary finishes that sentence. For the rest of us, it's a two paragraph summary that whet my appetite to read the entire article. Summary is at the bottom of the article.

Finally a reason to consider a Canon mirrorless. Their EOS M all but died upon arrival because of auto focus that was both inaccurate and slow. The slight improvements of M2 and M3 pleased the few fans. Others wondered why Canon bothered.

Wonder no more. Canon announced the M5. Sensor and autofocus from the 80D and a viewfinder top the list of improvements. There is hope...

True. Canon differentiates it's product by their lower end models either not having features or having them with lower capabilities than in the more expensive models. I hope Canon chose HD video after careful understanding of their intended buyer and didn't pick something at random that is a deal breaker for too many.

I think the micro 4/3 mirrorless and the Sony A6300 offers 4K?

Though I'd wait for at least another generation for better 4K support.

The TVs are affordable but the cameras are initially offering limited 4K support, like only 4K at 30 fps and no HDR support, which TVs are starting to offer.
