Dudeist: another $6K camera, with excellent system and performance and very good, but average image quality.

It is not made for the "average"" user either.

It looks like the full frame sensor (in the industry in general) has reached "the point of diminishing returns".
Little differences here and there from one brand to the other, making good hardware design / tweaking the most significant factor.

I think the days of "WOW!" are gone.
Perhaps the next huge "WOW!" will happen when some completely new type of sensor technology is discovered and implemented.

Great camera, and a very capable one, but obviously it is made for those who make a living out of their camera, not for those who make a living out of sitting here to make dumb comments.

Always nice to see comparisons, but I doubt very much that the 4 or 5EV push comparison would change the mind of the D5 or the 1D X II customers.
It's a rudimentary test. There are better ways to test noise levels from the camera, or from the sensor.

IMHO, the 1D X II is the king of the FF DSLR for now. Just look at sports events, or in war-torn zones to see which camera survives in these areas.

Ilia Snopchenko: Beats me why they keep bundling the awful 75-300 lens with the low-end cameras when there's a newer, crop-only, cheap 55-250 STM. Guess they're really desperate to clear the stocks.

Probably to get rid of excess inventory.
But in all fairness, I have seen some very nice images taken by the 75-300mm lens.
Personally, I don't have any experience with either one of them. All my lenses are "L" lenses.

Who else could pull this one up but Canon!!!

But hurry up before tat A3000 sale is over :-)

For the Canon folks, Canon is offering a free accidental damage protection for 13 months on their high-end cameras and lenses.

Just thinking out loud to myself, so please ignore this one ...
Quite a few have constantly nothing to say about DPR but negative comments, accusations, bashing, and the like.
Usually they don't have even a single image to show their skills, or bragging rights.

I'm just wondering why don't they simply leave DPR and join a different outlet if they are dissatisfied with DPR to that extent.

Again, I'm just thinking out loud.

Very nice images for an entry level camera.
Shrewd strategy by Canon. Beginners / students will buy the cheapest entry level that their tight budget could afford, and down the road they most likely will upgrade to higher-end Canon products that they have become familiar with, especially if they have invested in Canon lenses.
I know a good number of people who started with the entry level, Rebel line, and now on the 5D Mk III with a collection of "L" lenses.

"Getty Images represents over 200,000 photojournalists, content creators and artists around the world who rely on us to protect their ability to be compensated for their work."

Then PROTECT their work. It is not a search engine's responsibility to do the protection, dummy!!!
Wait until you are hit with a Ransom-ware attack!!!

The search engine simply brings you a load of results, warns you that some material maybe copyrighted, and leaves it up to YOU, the searcher, to decide what to do with the results.

On the other hand, the blood-sucking Getty Images can do a better job at securing high-resolution images, and blocking them from being displayed by a search engine, instead of acting like a crybaby.

It is Getty Images' responsibility to secure their material on their web site instead of laying the blame on a search engine.

They also have the option to OPT OUT of this search engine, which they accepted its policy, terms, and conditions.

Pathetic complaint!

That comment tells us a lot about YOUR understanding, Jeff.
What does a search engine have to do with Copyrights?

My heart is bleeding for Getty Images, the most greedy, blood-suckers in the imaging industry, in my not-so-humble opinion.

What a joke for Getty Images to be talking about fairness!!!
On the other hand, I don't blame them that much. Some photographers are willing to work with them.

Thank you, DPR, for allowing us to keep the current black background.
It's a lot easier on the eyes. Too much brightness in a white background.

sh10453: To each their own, but I never liked or cared for the circular bokeh at all.
I find such circles to be very distracting.

I like simple and effective blur, especially when you want a very shallow DOF.
The Canon 70-200mm "L" lens, for example, is very good at that.

Again, to each their own. I certainly wouldn't be rushing to contribute to this kickstart project.
Sites that are crazy about these circles are most likely influenced by one person / administrator /owner at that site, which is fine. It's a matter of preference. I simply don't care for the circles.
In fact I don't like them at all.
Of course I'm not alone who dislikes them.

In reply to:

mkbrkloster: My path started with Rebel, Rebel XT, and now T1i, all have served me well. I started with the kit lens, and upgraded and tweaked my lenses to match my shooting needs. 95% of my shots are of family and very rarely video (I've actually taken video on a DSLR 3 times, I think, over the years).

Given the lens investment, people like me don't switch from one brand to the other very often, if ever. A methodical upgrade in camera bodies that allows me to keep my lenses is all I need, even if some features (some of which I don't even care about) of other brands are better.

To switch from Canon to Sony would cost me a ton of money in lenses, and I would still not have the same lens set that I have now (converters are a hack).

I've been waiting for a new sensor to upgrade my T1i, and I got it in the 80d, which I will buy and use for the next 4-5 years. Sure, I'd love it if it were $999, but everything I buy I want a little cheaper.

There are a lot more of "me" out there than you think.

That's even a much better deal. Only $849 after the rebate, and you get a professional printer (up to 13" x 19"), Canon 50 sheets of 13 x 19, and a 64GB card.
Search for item # 331831932258 on eBay.

In reply to:

GaryJP: This is optimistic.

I'm using both Canon and Sony these days. I still prefer the colour of Canon. Too many Sony users are producing horrible fudgy looking low contrast pictures that look like they are shot on expired film. I can often spot a Sony image also by the predilection for green tinged faces and horrible over-modulation of blues, particularly from LED light sources (which DPReview never seems to want to own up to). And it is an aesthetic I try hard not to let creep into my work.

If the new 5D has better dynamic range and usable 4K, my A7RII and A7SII will be for sale. I get tired of struggling with the colours.

A good example of comparison can be seen here:

In reply to:

mangeshck: I have Canon 80D. I like everything on it as I upgraded from 60D. Only problem I have been facing is battery life. I guess I am not able to get more than 450 shots on single charge. Wi-fi is OFF, not even videos are being shot, no live view shooting. Battery seems to go down 1% for every 4 to 5 shots. Any suggestions?

I wouldn't complain at 450 shots per charge on a camera like this.
With a couple of spare batteries, that means 1750 shots. That's probably far more than MOST people would shoot in a full day of shooting.

Boissez: Lackluster AF, build and a lackluster sensor (although DR is improved). Will Canon ever release a compelling midrange product like they used to in the XXD series?

Such a shame.

@thx1138,
As a Canon senior researcher (unless your profile is totally fake), it would be more appropriate to listen / read, take notes, and implement customers wishes, rather than being combatant.
I find your involvement here (and your type of reply, in particular) to be far from professional, regardless of the comments you replied to.

In reply to:

Photato: Dear Canon, I don't really need 4K, but would appreciate if you give these products at least decent true 1080P video.
This lacking alone is what breaks the deal for me.
My Phone and Drone can do 4K already. This video situation is unacceptable for people like me who are interested in capturing high quality moving images, besides stills.

I second that. I don't care for 4K.
I hope the 6D replacement will take care of that, and that it will be an instant winner, and soon.
I have been waiting for this replacement for a long time.
