alcaher: NASA sucks, they always waste alot of money and resources. Take all that money for better things to do here in our the planet.
so what you'll are telling is NASA research has contributed to all the things we have, they also helped cure all the disease and solve poverty issues... Come on, there so many people dying due to sickness, lack of food, access to good drinking water etc. Why not spend the money for these.
Sirandar: no micro4/3 ......... ?
I have been looking for a decently priced prime in the 100-150mm range and there are none I have seen.
The Oly 40-150 pro is huge and almost 2000$
Sirander, that Oly 45mm is magic.
Reactive: It's desperately sad to see such a massive wave of pointless negative reactions from gear-lusting camera snobs who have no interest in this 'low-end' camera. You sound like a bus-load of spoiled high school rich-kid brats humiliating a little kid 10 years their junior.
Canon has to cover all parts of the market, including the bottom. The RRP is set deliberately high so when the discount electrical retailers put "40% off!" stickers on it they're still making a profit. It's not a new idea.
So why don't you brats take your vitriol off this site and go and take multiple award-winning photos with your $5000 cameras and L series lenses?
Hmmm... a friend stopped using his T5i because his S6 phone IQ is the same. Come on, i played with S6, yes it takes good photos but not in all circumstances e.g. moving objects etc.Like BarnET, this must be a bad day and you came here to relieve your pain.
Greg7579: Darn. This is not helping my rehab. I'm trying to break my decades-long big Canon SLR and FF DSLR addiction and my love of white lenses by carrying my sexy little Fuji XT-1 everywhere and choosing from an array of incredible little XF lenses. This Canon L comes along and makes me drool. This is not good. I am about to drop 1700 bucks on the new 100-400 Fuji, and now am tempted by this 2000 dollar lens. Should I get them both? That's insanity. I have bad GAS, but a meeting might help. My wife will not stand for this. I can't buy both lenses. No ... I must stick with my plan. Leave the bricks at home. Go with the Fuji. But I can't abandon Canon yet. It is too good for too many things that Fuji needs a little work on. Maybe when the XT-2 comes out I sell my room full of Canon gear..... Maybe. We will see.
ozimax, just watch out... the sigma 18-35 AF adjustment is hard to nail on the wide side on a 7D2. i tried 2 copies of the lens, had to return it and settle for the 17-55 Canon lens. Many argued that it's a great lens and MF is sufficient. For me using MF almost defeats the purpose of owning 7D2.
Reactive: Considering that the Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM is half the price of this 100-400, it's a real shame DP Review don't seem to have a review of the 70-300.It's a slightly more practical zoom range, smaller, lighter, and at half the cost a very attractive product.
i have used the 70-300 L with 7D2 and 6D. it's a great lens for the price. the object isolation gives you a 3D look. I haven't had the privilege to try the 100-400 MK2, so can't comment but the 70-300 L is a under rated lens.
SushiEater: Mercedes Benz is build the same way but you need to buy two of them. One keep in garage and one to drive. All of this over engineered stuff doesn't prove anything just cost too much. At the end of the day Sigma 35mm F1.4 is better. And you can buy two of them for the price of one Canon.
SushiEater, Sigma lens AF is always hit and miss. They do reverse engineering since they don't have privileged to Canon AF technology and algorithm. I spend a lot of time doing AF adjustment and even then it's still a hit and miss. I had this problem with Sigma 18-35 DC and I had to return it. For me AF is really important. Tamron seems to do better job than Sigma in AF accuracy. In my opinion, nothing can beat native components integration. Canon are continuously improving their body, lens software and i'm not sure Sigma can ensure full compatibility, indefinitely.
Joe Ogiba: The Panasonic GH5 should be coming in 2016 so that would be a great EVF for it.
don't think Panasonic can push their future m43 price as high as they used to. Semi Pro/Pro FF/APS-C DSLR/MILC camera prices are getting really competitive. So, they'll be cheap in comparison. they'l need save cost and built something for the price point. The last thing they want is an expensive part.
I'm a canon DSLR user. I never liked the idea of using 3rd party lens adaptor with A7R2. There is no equal to native lens integration. This is a good camera for me to explore Sony's new sensor which comes with a great lens. It's compact, has EVF. I didn't like original RX1 and didn't even consider it as an option for purchase but this one is in my list.
Donnie G: If you are looking for a compact (mirrorless) ILC that sports a 1" sensor, then you should buy from Sony, Nikon, or one of the other guys, because at Canon, fixed lens all in ones rule, and for good reason. They sell! There are no ifs, ands, buts, or maybes about it. Canon sells gazillions of PowerShot cameras, and the new G5X and G9X cameras look to me to be 2 more home runs in the marketplace for the company. Brilliant job Canon! :))
XC10 doesn't seem like a camera for the masses. Dont think stores would stock up many. It's more a specialised video tool. Don't think the standard joe would appreciate it.
Andrew Fudge: I have a 6D and am used to reading how mediocre it is compared to Nikon this and Sony that. Looking at the recent A7RII DR article, and the second comparison widget, I am surprised (but pleased) to see the 6D has lower noise at settings such as 1600 + 2stops, and 800 + 3stops. And it's even better against the 5DSR. But I've not noticed anyone else comment on this. Have I misunderstood what these test are about? Is this not a surprising result? Are DPR using the correct pics for the 6D?! Admittedly the 6D is worse than the Sony in the first widget at ISO100. AF.
Canon cameras usually does well in higher ISO accept 5DS. I have the 6D, it's almost 4 years old now. It's my first canon and I compared it to D600 before buying it. I liked it better than D600. There were lots of biased review of it when it was compared against Nikon D600. It kills D600 in high ISO, even better in long exposures.
ttran88: Hopefully now canon will buy from this new company.
Canon not competitive on sensor IQ? There is no such thing as sensor IQ. IQ depends on the final processed output which is stored in the memory card or temperary internal memory buffer.
Allar: How about final reviews on this camera, the Nikon D810, and the Canon 5Drs? Are we going to cut bait all day or go fishing?
By looking at some pictures from 5DS/SR, I thought the colour and res was good. Sensor half baked??? The package seems to be good. The one thing I dislike about Sony is colour. Nikon using Sony sensor does a better job. I have seen this in events like an Indian traditional wedding where the colour variance is huge, somehow I find Sony over does the green and blue colours.
FF DSLR, isn't it late. I'm a DSLR user but I have invested on Fuji MILC and playing with both. I'm sure the big C and N are definitely having some development on a mirrorless pro FF body and probably waiting for the right time to release after Sony makes all the hard work in marketing and selling the idea of mirrorless to pro's.
Promit: Okay, let's get a couple of the common ones out of the way, shall we?
"Canon keeps making a great camera even better.""Finally Canon is acknowledging that their flagship sports DSLR still needs work.""Now if only Canon could fix the dynamic range in a firmware update.""Pointless, just buy a A7R II instead. DSLRs are dead.""This level of of commitment to pros is why Canon will never lose marketshare to other brands.""Good to see they're not charging for firmware updates like Panasonic.""Sony <whatever> is better.""Nikon <whatever> is better.""Overpriced camera that still doesn't focus well.""The best crop DSLR on the market keeps getting better.""I had a 7D2 and it was the worst camera ever made. Now I shoot with four D810s and thirty thousand dollars of lenses.""I had a D810 and it was the worst camera ever made. Now I shoot with the 7D2 and only these Canon lenses.""My iPhone still focuses faster.""No EVF, no point.""Nikon needs to release the D400 immediately."
I have both 7d2 and the 17-55. I did experience AF issues on the wide side even after AF micro adjust. Tele side was OK. i did the the FW upgrade, did some test and it does seemed to be better. I'll still need to do more test.
HowaboutRAW: Does it have full 14bit raws?
This has been asked on so many occasions and this is one area where Sony simply doesn't want go.
I'm Xt1 owner. It took years for Fuji to improve on AF options like zone selection. These feature should have been included in the first release for a camera at this price point. Fuji fixes gaps via firmware upgrade. What they do is pre mature release their cameras get people's expectation low than impress them with firmware releases which were intended for either for bug or product gap fixes.
Smeggypants: It's not smartphones, but the iPhone. ?????? I thought an iPhone was a smartphone?

Apple like to differentiate but iPhone is a smartphone. Camera quality is not iPhones best qualities.
Donnie G: BR optics are another game changing technology that will make Canon EF L-series lenses even more desirable than they already are. Who knew that Canon could come up with a material that's better than fluorite at focusing light to the same focal point? Now this is innovation that matters. :))
Well said, I see lots of folks talking about sensor while I know that there are many whom are using canon dslr as professional making a living out of their camera. Canon sensor seems ok to many and most say the canon colour is good. Talk to the guys who does events where colour variance, skin tones reproduction is key.
Paul B Jones: The 7DII is a great, great camera. DPR showed its "toys for boys" colourful candy bias when it scored the camera low. Next time how about throwing actual field photographers a bone when reviewing stuff, DPR?
Canon 7d2 sensor on high ISO is comparable or better than SONY crop sensor. Only the Nikon 7100 which uses a Toshiba sensor matches.DXO worshipers can do the comparison. >400 ISO
bovverwonder: Overheating issues in 4K mode?
Ethan... Not sure where did you hear that. The point is every features needs to function fully not half baked performance. It's like Sony is actually aiming for spec sheet warriors not field warriors.
