    I cannot understand why Canon wishes to introduce slow zoom lenses, I rather they kept it at f/4 for slowest and f2.8 for their more expensive zooms. Being slow to the market and offering less doesn’t make sense.

      Interesting part MIRRORLESS APS-C! All you read was “slow apertures”, then you are not reading it correct. Slow(er) often means small(er), therefor better for a mirrorless combination.

  • 200 mm at 5.6 doesn’t make that much sense

    Yikes! APS-C mirrorless format… the same pitfall Sony stumbled upon. No chance for a small and lightweight system. Small body, but large lenses …

      I’m very happy to have a small/light NEX 5n hanging from my neck. It’s MUCH lighter than a Canon xxD, which also doesn’t fit in my pocket 😉

      Samsung have APS-C sensors in their NX cameras, there’s a few pancake primes for those.
