Zerg2905: Dear DPREVIEW...
I read your reviews carefully. Because I think you have the skills, and the expertise, to produce quite good reviews. And many, many times, I was on the same page with you, especially when you pointed (rightly) the clear flaws some of the Canon cameras have. But not this time. I own the 7D 2. I had the 7D before, and between these two there is no contest. Sony sensors, ah, yes, they DO have more DR (but not that much). Other brands DO have more video mumbo jumbo (and big minuses in other areas). But the 7D 2 is, in my opinion, a photo tool, first hand. So tell me, please: which photo tool in the APS-C world is matching the 7D 2? The SLT A-77 II? I would have to disagree, as I have use it, too. Other brands don't have anything close, but, like the 7100, are "Gold award" cameras.
I think the Silver Award is a BIG MISTAKE (and many EU and US articles seem to be on my side here...), a mistake that will cost you credibility. Not now, but in the mid-long term. If it matters.

Ha, ha...veeeeeery funny...Thing is, I don't need their gold star. And this is not about gold stars anyway, it is about what's behind.

Dear Joe, I wish you only Gold Award cameras. Dpreview style.

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (576 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim Forever: It wasn't a surprise, but was expected that D750 would be a clear winner. I personally shoot nikon D610 and would love to switch to D750, the autofocus system coupled with great low light performance is compelling enough. Not that D610 is lame, but D750 is simply the best. Also the nikon Econ-system is currently the best in the market if compared with canon and Sony has a long way to go before it catches up with the Giants. Any new person looking at investing in photography and growing should IMHO stick to Nikon and secondly canon.

1D X first, D4S second. Sorry.

Nikon did it. The 750 is their 5D III (and I mean it). But, 5D IV should come rather sooner, too.

A bit forced: Sony bought Minolta. Maybe...Philips should buy Metz! :)

This is unfortunate.

Those who have a cinematographic culture. There is a small large world out there, you know. And, btw, some might know Iggy Pop. And eventually Arizona Dream.

I think Silver is enough for this camera. But the Mk II should be Gold.

DxO measurements will be simply blinded by this shining Nikon star. Ad-hoc DxO statement: "this Au 79 Nikon is too good to be measured. By us."

Reinhard136: is it just my imagination or do canons always seem to do faces well ? even a photo of a photo of a face ........ do they have some face recognition software in there that tweeks anything it thinks is a face ...... maybe just dreaming ....... rest of images always seem a bit ordinary .

Good catch. I had to look quite closely, and it seems you're right. Interesting...

Zerg2905: OK, thank you.
And now for something completely different*: where is the "crushing" superiority of the Sony sensors (Nikon and Sony cameras), in RAW, ISO 6400, bulb???

* = courtesy of Monty Python.

Aha, thank you, I was not aware of that, just assumed that all Nikons have (now) Sony sensors. My mistake.

On Canon announces EOS C100 Mark II article (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zeisschen: Canon is seriously going to sell this huge Super 35 (wide APS-C crop) camera for 5.500 bucks?

The video specs look like those of any medium range mirrorless cameras like Sony a6000. Is there anything I missed?

Is all that extra price tag for video features no available in most DSLR like Zebra and Focus peaking, a standard on any mirrorless 500$ camera?

No 4k, not even via external recorder? In times where you can get Blackmagic 4k or Full Frame Sony A7s cameras for half the money with better IQ? A GH4 with 4k and probably similar IQ for just 1500 bucks? Seriously??

This company is insane!! I mean they must live inside a cave in their own stone age!

Well, my 1987 (no kidding, the black / white box thing with a red LED) Walkman also works fine, together with a pile of Philips (or BASF) CCs. But if you want to compare apples with pears, I'm also fine with that.
Edit: sorry, it is 1984, not 1987.

In reply to:

Donnie G: Pixel peep all you want gang, this camera will make money for the professionals who use it and the rental houses who stock it. Its a small, lightweight, infinitely customizable, industrial strength body with AF that's supported by the largest selection of modern lenses the world has ever known, and that makes it a very cost effective tool for professional productions. Of course if you're not a pro, then none of that would matter to you. Different strokes!

@Donnie, even if he works for Canon (or not): your answer is good, but not for people worshiping brands, or pixels, or DxO, or whatever. I want to see movies at home on a 21:9 format, with a native effective resolution of 5120 X 2160, but that's not quite the standard of today. Therefore, 4K is also nonsense, as it is still an ugly 16:9, and you will have your top / bottom black bars. So, no matter of how good or bad this camera is, let's discuss movie formats first. And what kind of sensors will be needed. And then start to judge the rest of the features and say Sony>Canon, Arri>Sony etc...

P. S.: the majority of my so called hi-fi Sony equipment died. Some old Philips amps however work just fine. Pick a conclusion. If you think Sony is the greatest kid on the block fine with me.
