Hi,

I just purchased a Canon 70D after much contemplation about my next camera. I had a 5D Mark II, but was looking for the best compromise between fast operation, good video and image quality. The Canon 70D is sensational when it comes to overall operation, but the image quality lets down, with very limited dynamic range. For this reason, I am willing to go back to FF. The 6D is a good alternative (although I would sorely miss the brilliant video autofocus of the 70D), but I heard that the Fuji x trans sensors come close to FF quality. I am attracted to the compact, retro style bodies and manual control. I would be willing to sacrifice good video, if I get great FF like image quality from the Fuji bodies.

Can anyone comment on this please? Especially in terms of highlight and shadow recovery. How well is details at these extremes recovered from RAW files?

Thanks

The dynamic range doesn't deviate perceptibly from the 5dmk2 to the 70d. Sensor size does not necessarily confer an advantage in this area. Fuji compares to full frame in a similar manner to any other apsc sized sensor. Many full frame cameras have worse image quality than smaller sensor equipped cameras and vice versa. I believe you may be laboring under a false apprehension vis a vis full frame.
