Petrogel: Canon Congrats !!!! you're getting worst and worst year after year
-P.S I could have sold my EOS 400D as new
I agree with you. Canon Rebel sensor is worse year after year. Best image quality is on rebel model 550d. It's INCREDIBLE.
Canon xxxd model image quality is worse each time: 550d is better than 600d, 600d is better than 650d, 650d is better than 700d...It's incredible!!
I don't see why lightroom is different from photoshop. It's exactly the same thing: with lightroom is you have CC and don't pay month suscription, you can't open your lightroom catalog, and with photoshop if you have CC and don't pay month suscription, you can't open your .psd files.The only difference is that in photoshop there are no real choices. And with lightroom, you can choose camera one, dxo, photo ninja...
I understand Adobe in the sense that with CC they have money each month. With previous versions, they only have money when a version is finished.
But anyway, I think that people should have the option to buy CC or CS version.
Every company wants you in the cloud, because then, you are a all-life customer. You can't left them.And that prices are low to let you get in... one year later they can increase the each month price, and the only thing you can do is to pay month after month.The cloud is an enormous joke, and all companies know it.
Just comparehttp://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=canon_eos550d&products=canon_eos600d&products=canon_eos650d&products=canon_eos700d4 cameras, 3 years... and same features!Same MP, same focus points, same screen resolution, almost same viewfinder, last 3 models have articulated lcd, stereo sound (600d have only mono), the same battery ...And still, every time the price is higher.It will not be for research that is behind, right?
Has anyone read "Improved interactive performance at intermediate zoom levels (e.g., 33% and 66%)" in camera raw 7.4 rc1 release notes?That's a big improvement!
Better prices, and less discounts.Both Canon and Nikon have risen sharply the price of photography.
Google+ need that people begin to share things: You must entertain others.
Microsoft and other companies are using patents because they have nothing to do in actual market, so they need the money of others to survive. It's an unfair play.
Kite Kraemer: Too little, too late. I didn't want to switch back to Canon, but I'm glad I did --their customer service is great!
for russbarnes: I guess your house and your car aren't insured, right?
Phiben: Still crashing on Win 7, 64 Bit, SSD systems. :/

Superb photos! Congratulations!! :)
ARTASHES: judging from Dpreviw studio shots 550D has the best high ISO IQ from all Canon APS-C DSLRs to my eyesnow that's odd
Perhaps it's only better white balance or better autofocus, but I'm convinced that 7d images are considerably better than 550d images.
You are wrong. The best image quality on Canon APS-C sensor is from 7d. It's very very clear.But when you're talking about image quality, I think that all other canon camera models between 550d to a 7d are thatch.
I think that photo tests must be done with same lens and same F number and same focus point. If not, this tests are not a real thing.Example: look at the Queen of Hearts head. Canon 7d photo is more in focus than Canon 600d, and Canon 600d is more in focus than a Canon 5dmk2!!! Yes, I know that 5d is full-frame, but if this photo are not a full focus in all photo, that is not comparable.Anyway, the thing that I can't understand is why at the he heart of the Queen of Hearts there are so noise in canon 600d and 650d while the canon 550 has lower noise and is more similar to canon 7d.
