I found 5Dc is especially shine in cloudy day or under soft light.

Hmm, maybe I should get one too.

It's the best sub $1000 FF camera you can get today. It still generates the best IQ among all 12mp FF cameras.

and I would add it still offers a level of "acuity" that most current cameras still dont acheive. Wonderful skin tone etc is another conversation

Like this

Some still like those creamy looks in some old Canon models, 5Dc, 1D3 and 1Ds2. Another puzzle is that although they don't have decent high DR but they don't show obvious banding either if you pulled.

Some of the best images I’ve ever seen to this day came from the 5D & 1DsII . This dxo/dr stuff is so overblown it’s ridiculous
