paulbysea: I have ignored this camera until know. These two reviews have given me pause for thought. I currently have a 5D3 and was wondering about getting a 7D2 for my more action orientated shot and keeping with the 5D3 as I develop as a landscape and product photography. Now I wonder if I should sell the 5D3 as well and go for the Pentax. Or maybe I should wait and hope canon bring out a similar camera, albeit one where you can use EF lenses to crop down the body to FF in a similar way that Nikon can with their system. Whatever I do will be after xmas, probably spring time. Need to sell some classic Naim amps and Meridian 104 tuner first to free up some cash first.
I assume you looked at the Luminous Landscape article(s) on this camera? (Including the one with astrophotography)
Why not do 2 roundups or just 1 roundup?High end FFNot high end FFOr just FFBut cover all FF.
Agree with the other posts.Nice thing Michael has done here.BC
Yet another Canon body that I'm not interested in.
My Canon glass is either going on older Canon bodies or newer camera bodies made by other manufacturers.
The last 5 camera bodies I have bought have not been Canon.
Canon and Nikon need to wake up.
Even bothering to comment on this product is a waste of our time.
So is this announcement supposed to make up for the stupid India or whatever non announcement it was?
If it costs more than a car why is DPReview bothering us with it?
Slow news year?
Next thing you know the video sites will be newsing only still photography info.
Maybe DPR is taking their marketing methods from Canon.
They're going to announce they have sold their camera business to Sony. Hahahaha.
Bernard Carns: The problem with grabbing still frames from a video camera is the lack of pixels in the vertical dimension.
It's like having a 100MP camera that is 1 pixel high.
Its all panorama.
I guess you don't get the concept of rhetoric.And I think you meant to type 16 not 6.BC

Canon...Kodak....they sort of start with the same sound. Canon will have a softer landing. Are Canon lenses gonna be like Hasselblad lenses someday where you cant give them away? Both Canon and Nikon have not innovated enough. I have their glass but I'm using it on other brands bodies. Haven't bought a Canon body in years . Not buying their glass will follow.
Lets hope by now they finally figured out how to make adapters that don't jam on a lot of peoples cameras.
Another typical letdown from Canon.The last cameras I've bought have NOT been from them.When are they going to finally do something worth someone's attention?
Interesting points of view.
But the images are really flat.
Where's the dynamic range?
These are the poorest quality images I've ever seen National Geographic endorse.
Maybe National Graphic has become the drone....er zombie....
But, again, the points of view are somewhat interesting.
I wanna see the picture of the eagle chasing the guy on the ground controlling the drone...
Isn't this a rerun?
Is the summer season for the DPReview network?
Sad to see them go.
I drive past one of their stores every day on my way to work.
Even Samys a few miles away doesn't carry the fun high end stuff any more.
But some other small camera stores seem to be hanging in there.
Sign of the times.
Pretty boring show.Sounds like the fog in Seattle is way more interesting.
Having to open the battery door to install the memory card. That's real smart. Maybe if you don't shoot video you won't need to open it that much?16mp? and not a Favon sensor with 19 stops of DR? Hmmm.If they would have made you have to open the back to install the memory card, then they would have really gotten the retro idea right.
I suppose this is why Yelp pulls disparaging remarks which makes Yelp reviews next to worthless.
