Quote:Nah, then i'll just use those lenses on my Canon EOS 6D. Comparable sensor, albeit with a tad higher resolution, switchable focus screen, better ergonomics and better live view. Or use them on my Nikkormat FTn, of course.
I guess a retro-styled version of the 6D (with less stupid controls, i.e. more Fuji, less Nikon) and the same 6D/5Dii viewfinder with switchable focus screens would easily kill the Df.
I think Canon is, in many ways, in a very favorable strategic situation. The all-electronic nature of the EF mount and its relatively short flange distance are really an advantage - they could easily add Fuji-style faux aperture rings to their lenses, etc. And with the sensor-tech from the 70D, the EF-M mount also has some serious potential.
However, I think Canon is still doing too well with its traditional business model. They are not hard-pressed to capture a higher share of the mirrorless market, nor to ride the retro-wave. It's a pity...
