Ilvez: Lets make it clear that "peers" are D5 and DxII, rest of the lineup would simply fall apart in the dimly lit sports event, or in rough counditions.
Even though the Nikon and Sony have been praised for their advances in the sensor area, then Canon must be doing something right when large part of the professionals in demanding conditions are shooting with it. That is all I need to know for now.
As today the professionals market also demands good video capabilities, including the ability to use autofocus, then D5 has a lot of work to do.
I mostly agree with you, while I'm no pro I think this line'then Canon must be doing something right when large part of the professionals in demanding conditions are shooting with it.'
could be written as
'then Canon must of done something right when large part of the professionals in demanding conditions are shooting with it.'
As in past tense. I think many professional already have the lenses they need and are sticking with them as there isn't a reason to change systems.
But with this attitude when others come up with better lenses or new generation of pros come into play that isn't invested in Canon lenses. Canon might get into a problem if it continues on it's path.
Interestingness: DPReview - I think you need to address the autofocus test. I know in a comment down below it was said you are working on a standardized test. It is needed.
For fun I compared the cyclist being AF'd on with the 80D vs A6300 and they are two COMPLETELY differently executed tests!
- Much more contrast in area of riders face in A6300 scenario- Cyclist was zig zagging in A6300 scenario but riding directly to camera in 80D (I think we can all predict which test is 'easier' without needing to even take the camera out of the bag)- The DOF seems significantly shallower in the 80D scenario - everything is blurred out (even in the few that got the focus right) but in the A6300 everything is in focus.- In the 80d scenario it appears that the rider covers more distance in a shorter amount of time than the A6300 scenario. The zig zagging rider will account for a lot of that but even that notwithstanding, in the 80D's scenario it was a much faster moving target the camera had to hit
wri7913: Have you ever thought that DPR are just doing their job and Canon is just falling behind?
Also haven't seen too many bad things mentioned about Fiji other than Autofocus.
This is coming from a Sony and Canon user.
Does that mean Google will get access to scenes from blockbuster movies before release?
Another point where movies can be leaked?
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.
Hmm, and what would you suggest they do with the money. Space exploration and understanding the universe is key to the survival of the Human race.
The human population is going to just keep growing and growing and use more and more resource and no matter how green we live, we will reach a limit where the planet can't handle, 20 billion? 30 Billion?40 Billion? Unless you dictate who can breed and who can't. It's not going to solve this problem. I wrote this ages ago.

villagranvicent: What we all want is a magic firmware who could make the batteries last more than 50 shots.
I'm guessing this is a troll attempt. I have used both original and knock offs in below freezing temps and never got less than 50. I guess he could mean 50 bulb setting shots. or 50 shots leaving the camera on for many hours without switching off.
RidgeRunner22: Ha! for some reason I got a real kick out of this one. Looks like s lovely lens! Wish they would make one equally sharp a few stops slower, and way smaller. When do you use an 85 at 1.4? sounds hard to deal with, from a DOF stand point.
I'd use it for Indoor Sports.
Hi, is it possible to comment on the auto focus speed with the A7Rii? It should give some example of how it will go paired with the A6300.
Random Asian Guy: I wonder how slow can it go. Might be good for some time lapse stuff.
Tomaz, yep, I've seen those before, they are basically just a kitchen timer that goes too fast for a slow time lapse.

Horshack: They're redefining what a pocket camera is, as in not being able to actually fit into your pocket :) They look even bigger than the dimensions would indicate, esp the protruding lens stub on the 18-50mm.
I say everyone should wear Cargo pants/shorts they are awesome :)
I think picture 7 has typo:
The DL18-50 will cost $649 and the wider DL18-50 will set you back $849.
I'm a little confused why are their so many articles on the DLs with no real additional information. Just a few extra pictures?
Is it to keep the interest up? or keep the comments to a more readable level?
Wouldn't it of been easier just to add the photos to a previous article?
Gee, coming from a Canon and Sony user. The DL18-50 actually interests me for a holiday camera.
The range is much more useful as on holidays you usually want to fit in a lot of scenery. Unless it's the Safari or Whale watching type of holidays.
Small sensor with fast lens is ok. Small Sensor will keep more of the scenery in focus especially at night with the fast lens. I've seen some pretty silly full frame 1.4 photos where you could barely make out the background location.
But I think leaving out a flash is pretty bad idea. On holidays it's annoying having to carry an external flash and charger. Hope there is a review and sample pictures soon.
yzhenkai: What does this "G" mean?
A user on SAR called it the GM lens 'GrandMaster'. I think that is pretty awesome.
Random Asian Guy: I thought Pentax/Ricoh had the patent for the 2X180 degree fish eye design.
I like that it is weather proof, but I think the theta is a better design. You want the device further away from the hand so it doesn't have the stitching problems.
I think a better design would be a built in selfie stick with tripod mount on the bottom and extra battery power in the handle and the trigger button away from the device.
Sure, not everyone likes selfie sticks, but for this type of camera it's pretty much a must unless you want half the frame being the photographer. Here are two examples of why it needs to be on a selfie stick/monopod.
These photos are nothing special but if the device was too close, you could not get photos like these.

Adrian Harris: Tricky when the best are not listed. = it's dpr's list, so they may as well choose the winner !
Did you read the Text? the 8 listed are the winners and runner ups of 4 previous polls. There was a much bigger list if you include the list from all 4 polls.
After traveling 52 countries, I found it sad that 2 of my favourites were not on the list: Iceland and Turkey.
Iceland had awesome landscapes, everything from volcanoes, geysers, Waterfalls, Glaciers, Hot springs, Auroras.
Turkey just has too many beautiful place and culture to mention.
Random Asian Guy: A friend brought a Mini 7s to a recent holiday, Still quite fun flapping the photo and waiting for it to develop to see if it turned out ok.
I'd have to say, it sure did hide skin blemishes well, Got rid of every single one of my freckles. Sure this is a plus for some :)
Cool,thanks guys, didn't know that. Guess next time I see one pop up I'll do the right thing.
