bigdaddave: Well if you are silly enough to buy one you can afford a new pc

Onlooker, clearly you only think Macs are cool. I disagree

I could never be seen with a bag that is worth more than the gear inside it.

What an utter waste of money

bigdaddave: Not sure why these are on a photo site, but it's amazing to think these pictures were taken with a useless, banding-ridden DR-limited Canon 5D mark 2.

Whatever next.

Manuel, have you actually seen the name of this site? It's about GEAR

You don't get irony do you Rishi? The point I made was that the old 5D2 which most here bash for it's banding and lack of DR makes a perfectly good photographic tool. It's not my fault too many people whinge about the 5D2's lack of DR & IQ. And no, I don't think a PHOTO GEAR site is the place for these pics.

bigdaddave: I cannot believe the 'Cons' section doesn't mention the elephant in the room - IT ONLY HAS ONE FOCAL LENGTH

In the days when even a compact camera the size of a pack of cigs has a reasonable zoom this 1950's throwback might appeal to the well-heeled but as an actual tool it's far far too limited

But DP love Fuji so they've overlooked the obvious again

For heavens sake I'm not saying it isn't a good camera, I'm saying it's very limited in it's abilities and DP should have pointed that out instead of all the fanboy stuff

How sycophantic you are. At least just admit the camera is limited by it's lens, because it is

Is it any good for:
Head & shoulder portraits - No
Interiors - No
Sports - No
Landscapes - Not really
Macro - No
Studio - No

It's good for street and candids, that's it

You just don't get it. If I choose to go and shoot with one prime on my dslr I can, but then I can choose a different lens the next day, with this you simply can't. That's it, one lens must fit all.

DP reviews are 99% either zoom or interchangeable lens cameras yet this massive fact isn't mentioned as a possible limitation when it's the biggest limitation of all

It's an utterly terrible camera, unless yo happen to want that focal length and by far the most limited camera in it's price range for that very reason. It's a niche camera, nothing more

This is a I'm sure a good camera, IF you want that focal length, to simply ignore that massive limitation isn't a fair review

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (318 comments in total)

"As far as I can remember though, Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"

You mean apart from the 550D, 600D, 650D, 60D and 7D ?
