How dare they are charging Canon like prices! At least Canon was smart enough to do the price hike with introduction of new lenses. Just look at the prices for the 24-70 L II or 70-200 L II ... The price increase might actually be for Japan at the moment, as the weak Yen makes import of raw materials tough, but helps selling into more expensive currencies.
Looks like they did successfully draw the attention away from the launch. Everybody now tries to imagine why they had no real photographer available, or what Pentax is trying to tell us with these boring snapshots. My comment has nothing to do with the hopeful awesome new camera, just about how incompetent some marketing guys can be... but then, maybe this is just an extremely smart subliminal marketing strategy that already startet to work :') ?
Where I am coming from, this would be considered a PR disaster. An announcement without _anything_ substantial apart from the product name, and that it will be oh so great is a complete nogo that would never ever pass legal or the PR council... Not pro or con Nikon here, but this sounds truly desperate!
... but then again I'm not working in the consumer industry ;-)
Says resaved for every RAW I converted to JPG in LR. Congratulations we found a RAW workflow detection tool!I tried with from RAW processed files from M, M2 and 5Dmk3. I did not do anything else than importing it and then generating a JPG without playing with any settings (apart from the default profile applied, obviously)
Not sure I missed something here, but this has only value if shooting JPG so far, right?
Thank you dpreview for taking care of my GAS!Along my 5dIII I have the M and the M2. Even compared with OOC jpeg these here look truly lomo like.
So I guess the M3 must be completely crap, and I have to stick to my older M's. Just wonder how all the others got great pictures out of this little thing, even with jpeg...
No idea what happened there, but if I was Canon I would be seriously pi**ed at you guys! No I idea how many people hit your page daily, but I guess you can hardly repair the damage you did.
Fake detection is missing!Whenever the camera detects a fake it should automatically take a picture. That way it would increase the chance of capturing something "new".... just don't know how to handle the blonde thing within this yet ...
This gentlemen seriously needs a press training. Never talk about negatives, always position positives. Don't mix "Canon sayd" with "we did..." if you want to be perceived as independent.He seems to be a very respectable and nice guy, but this was pretty bad for a spokesperson.
Awesome composition! Congratulations!
Very nice pic! You must have been standing next to me :-)I have a very similar one, even some of the windows are lighted up in a similar pattern...http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/321195005/photos/2828428/img_0633?inalbum=malaysia
Amazing shot! Congratulations.Guess I need to add east Oregon to the list of places to visit ;-)
Chronis: exactly what Canon needed at this point... another expensive lens for those already invested in their system...
shows how out of touch they are, building trimmings for bodies that (given the choice) any sensible customer would have at the bottom of his list...
If it's better or at least as good as the 400 F/5.6L, I'll buy it.
Peter Gurdes: at ISO 100 i hardly notice a difference to the old 18 MP sensor.
the 70D and 7D MK2 sensor sure have better shadows. less banding and cleaner.
it would have been nice to see this low-iso performance with an improved resolution around 28 MP.
but low iso performance is stagnating overall.
You are right! You did not write: "shadow at Iso 100 is awesome, and there is zero banding"I red your post as a complaint, as even my old 20d had no issue with shadow noise in a medium sized jpeg, shot at iso 100 on a sunny day. <insert the sarcasm tag of your choice here>
Guess my eyes are ok, but I need to check my detector for "glass half empty" messages and learn to ignore them.
Eric Calabros: Well.. We have a DR disaster here
Looks like an exposure disaster to me...
I must have missed something. You see banding? You see noise in the shadows? Did you find a way to download the full res jpg or raw files?I seriously need to get my eyes checked then
Funny how the same crowd calling the DSLR mirror box a caveman design are now the target for (arguable great) MF lenses. While I always loved Zeiss, I sold off mine long time ago and financed my entry into the FF DSLR market. Never looked back to manual focus, as much as I loved my Zeiss lenses ...
Amazing how people always complain. First everybody complained about the insane prices canon charges for their lenses. Little dispute on how good the pro class lenses are, just too expensive. Now Canon drops the prices to the usual "after rebate" level. What's now? Everybody yelling and complaining about Canon going down, and how used lenses are depreciating... Guys, just be happy. Somebody lowered it's prices!
(unknown member): These high noise tests are pretty sad, if you are any good as a photographer you will use a tripod. If you want to test a real life situation - give one person a cheap Canon or Nikon APS-C with a reasonable 50mm lens - AND a TRIPOD. Give the other person the Sony A7S (handheld) and a 50mm Sony Lens - then do your midnight shoot. There is no action motion here - so shoot at any speed and setting - the end result is what counts. Each photographer then processes the raw files, and posts them with 100% crops. I'd bet the tripod mounted cameras would produce a better final product. If you really want to set the cat amongst the pigeons - introduce another photographer with a micro 3/4 or Sigma Foveon sensor camera (on a tripod) with a similar lens and really see what a differnce a Tripod makes.
@Shiranai. Not getting your logic at all how two ifs invalidate the idea to compare high ISO. But maybe you just replied to the wrong post :-)
