mpgxsvcd: Looks good. I just wish we didn't have to wait a quarter of a year between when it was announced and when it actually hits the shelves. That and I wish it was about 3/4 the price.
what else is new?
DotCom Editor: The 5DS R resolution is 50.6 MP, much more than the Nikon D810 at 36.3 MP.
So, why does the ISO 100 RAW image from the Canon weigh in at 63.6 MB, while the D810 is 74.4 MB, according to the DPReview studio scene bulls-eye images?
what's the compression on the NEF?canon uses lossless TIFF compression no?
UnitedNations: My Nikon DF has better sensor than this camera...and better low light ISO ability...... Leica sure is expensive.
considering the zeiss zf 50mm 1.4 is a mere $750 I think UN has a point. It's really no contest and oh please... sony, canon or nikon don't make a $3400 normal lens, nor charge the insane prices of leica optics. are they that much better? most times, no. their rendering is certainly different than a zeiss lens, but all camera manufactures make magnitudes more lenses with far more challenging designs than leica has ever attempted.
I would help that given the price of leica glass that it happens to be well, good?
price per performance, leica isn't even in the same ballpark.. their lenses aren't that magical.
HowaboutRAW: Real world (London, UK) samples, DNGs included.
Beautiful light, amazing lens, I guess the sharpness freaks will object that open past f/2.4, it's not staggeringly sharp:
it's alright .. not sure if i consider that $7500 "alright" though.
zw1975: 5DII's poor DR for shooting landscape . . . . I know your pain because I have the same.
the problem with that skanter, is that as cameras get better, the percentage of me too" shots increases as more and more people require little skill, talent and imagination. spray, pray, load up the raw in photoshop, mash it up, crop it, and you have the same as what some photographer painstakingly took 10+ years ago that we at the time could only aspire to.
ozturert: Let's see how Canon will tackle this issue. If they act fast and fix this free of charge ASAP, then they'll show their difference from Nikon. If not.. well...
@sandy - canon released a recall / fix and official notice of 1D mark III problems four months after 1D Mark III's where shipped - how long did it take nikon to admit anything about the D600? the D800?
I think your fiasco should be directed at nikon far more than canon. at least canon went public while the camera was still the actual manufacturered product and stated there's problems - nikon did that after the D610 came out.
Reverend Ray: When examining the historical line of mid-range DSLR production, seeing the new sensors in the Nikon, and examining products from the D5500 of Nikon, I sold all my Canon stuff and went to the Nikon D7200. I was considering waiting for the Canon, as the T5i was a good camera, but after reading the DXOMark review I went with the Nikon and am now totally glad. My luck run would have put me in line for one of the Canon 760Ds with a bad sensor and then walking the maze of repairs.
good luck walking the maze of repairs if something ever happens to your nikon :)
ThatCamFan: As someone who has worked in manufacturing, I am AMAZED that quality control is such a low standard with the Camera Manufacturers that issues like these happen again an again. They would of never happened on my watch, why?Because problems like these never got shipped to consumers. I stood my watch and did my job (not camera manufacturing but mass manufacturing non the less where details were even harder to see)
right. errors in manufacturing NEVER happen. like EVER.
could also be something that didn't exhibit itself until after n number of weeks - canon would have started t6 production months ago and shipped it prior to release.
so as far as manufacturing - it may never have been visible.
I'm AMAZED that someone familiar with mass manufacturing never thought of that ;)
jrkliny: It seems to take Canon a long time to do anything. Lens Rentals notified Canon, waited 3 days and then announced the issue towards the end of last week.
By now I would have expected to at least hear that Canon is working on this issue.
omg a whole three days.. seriously. lens rentals informs canon usa, who in turn informs canon japan (there's one day loss right there btw), who in turn has to look at the current manufacturing, and lot numbers to determine .. what the heck happened .. and then .. they have to contact legal, make a press announcement, get it translated into n number of languages - pass through legal again .. and then you hear about it.
they are definitely some older canon WA's for sure, however, it takes time to build up a lens investment unless you're just tossing money at it.
and btw, so does canon - the notable missing company in your list there.
mayurgogoi: i like no 9
I have to admit, it's my fav as well
dgeugene1: Except for the man with the keys these lovely calendar pictures could have been made by any one of thousands of photographers. I suspect editors at DPreview prefer to anticipate the taste of the average consumer rather than risk a new idea.
always one in the crowd....
Lovely photographs, thanks for sharing!
They call me Hans: Stunning photos. And I couldn't agree more about sunrises...pillow usually persuades me otherwise.
I have great aspirations to take sunrise photos.. next weekend ;)
Cane: Why knock off a $250 lens?
well canon atypically has more exotic elements in more expensive lenses making it harder to copy.
I highly doubt they could for instance copy any lens that had a fluorite element. super UD even may be out of the question.
RStyga: I wonder if they use the same quality glass elements with equivalent coating. I also wonder about their QC.
canon discontinued that lens a while back....
joe6pack: If they make one for E-mount, they can charge 2x the price.
and everyone there would proclaim it amazing ;)
Mark K: They should replicate 50f1.2, 85 f1.2 or if bold enough, the 600F4 IS II
sure love to see them grow their own fluorite crystals for that one.
nunatak: "It’s easy enough to create a jpeg, but creating raw files would have required some different programming on the processor, which we decided was not a cost effective option. "
too bad. how long before the XC10 Mark II will address this deal breaker?
it's an interesting concept. just because canon makes something you don't like .. why do you care. I'm curious to see how it does in the field, and how successful it does with the target audience canon thinks will be interested in it.
frankly you or I aren't the target market, so why do you care so much?
Cane: XC10- the C stands for' compromised'.
"stream it three times faster..." .. right and you claim to be a director.. obviously one with little understanding of compression.
