Menneisyys: To everyone complaining about DPR's NOT using lens correction: I, as a prospective buyer of the 16-55 lens, really do want to know NOW, before the much stricter and more informative reviews of slrgear.com / lenstip.com how much distortion and CA the lens has and how sharp it is. The only way of finding this out is NOT applying any lens / CA correction to RAW files.
It's only this way that we can reliably compare the CA / pinchusion / barrel distortion levels to those of the 18-55 or the primes. After all, we all know the in-camera JPEG engine gets rid of the (sometimes pretty strong) CA of the 18-55 almost entirely so you can be absolutely sure the 16-55 RAW images, which seem to have much less CA, are at least equally clean.
Again, the better, the less distorted input BEFORE the correction, the better output AFTER the correction. Tests like these are of high importance for us high-end users / pixel peepers.
Pat Cullinan Jr: If you need to use your psd files, you must pay monthly tribute to Shantanu Narayen for the rest of your natural life.
Photoshop, by the way, is infuriatingly short on photographic tools. New features are few and faaaaaar between.
Narayen must be as well-liked as QuarkXPress CEO Fred “All customers are liars, thieves and bastards” Ebrahimi.
You make some good points, Barry.
Actually, I work in Photoshop Elements! I only go to Photoshop for Warp and Puppet Warp, and sometimes Shadows and Highlights (which is better than that of PSE) and Selective Color. I use Neat Image for noise control.
Serif has launched Affinity Photo for the Mac. I would like the DPR community to investigate the virtues of this challenger. I would love to see a PS-killer to make inroads. Competition is good!
Dani Lischinski of Israel has developed a raft of photographic tools, including a colorization tool that tops anything you ever saw. Adobe couldn't care less. See http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~danix/.
I will be looking at slrgear.com and lenstip.com, thank you.
Funduro: Adobe can take its CC thingy and stick it in Russia for all I care.
Paul Guba: Coming soon: Adobe now owns all the images you uploaded to Adobe Cloud, Behance, and changed or modified with Photoshop, Lightroom or Camera Raw.
No, wait, not funny.
I haaaaate Adobe.
Years ago, I gave Adobe $125 for an upgrade to Framemaker. I pitched a shirt hemorrhage when I learned that the added functionality was Japanese language support. Was I ever a patsy.

Pat Cullinan Jr: What's up with these lenses? Have they been cut in half or something?
No, wait, they've already been haved.
I thought so.
What did they do with the other halves? Could I have them?

5d3user: SOB, its got just as many pixels as 5diii, as many autofocus points as the 7d mark 1 and is cheaper than both. this is rediculous.
A clear and balanced post.
MartinB77: The 760D is really a nice one. Top-LCD, new sensor, new dial, WiFi, somewhat new AF - all o.k..
But personally, as 550D I want a much better viewfinder! I really get sick with this small, dark and slightly misaligned pentamirror viewfinder.
So canon - please be nice and hand over the 80D :-)
Over time, we become our cameras. Like, I'm still a Leica IIIg.
Wha'?! Me pupule?
Drat! Here's another camera I just have to have.
I'll shoot a couple thousand photos, get jaded, and misplace it under a mound of Sunday supplements. Like I did with the T2i.
Sdaniella: Whilst Samsung's NX1 is the first affordable consumer 4k APS-C (near Super35mm Cine sized sensor) mirrorless digital camera (great for budding 4k Cinematographers) ... with fast AF
This new Canon EOS 760D serves as the first affordable consumer HDR APS-C (near Super35mm Cine sized sensor) touch-screen capable AF for budding Cinematographers wanting easy-access (minimal or no post processing) for Dual-Level Exposure for HDR CINE = like a beginners version of pro industry ARRI ALEXA CINE cams minus the expense, weight, heat, bulk, and conventional MF lens methods ... brings to the everyday shooter 'normalized' HDR CINE! (@ 720p = managable filesizes for global online sharing)
it's a preview of what's to come in higher models, like EOS 80D? (HDR 1080p) 5DMkIV? (HDR 4K, HDR 1080p), etcEOS C-series: 1D or C#00and likely Powershots, too
and no need to resort to ML (Magic Lantern hack), although I'm sure there will be plenty of new features buried yet to unlock
+lots o' lenses!
I admire the tone of comity.
Yes, IQ is becoming the great equalizer.
jukeboxjohnnie: FAIL !!!! No viewfinder which is expected among enthusiasts these days
I buy every camera that comes out with a viewfinder. ;)
Now that IS interesting! 13EV is not to be sneezed it. I wonder what you could get out of a Sony sensor with interleaving.
Boky: Buying canon dSLR without focus micro-adjust is ludicrous. Been there, done that - never again!
Way to go, Reesh!
Pat Cullinan Jr: Samuel Spencer wrote-"Just replaced the Daylight RAW images with a new, sharper set. The original set did not have anti-shock (electronic first curtain shutter) mode turned on. The new set does. That and some careful focusing delivered much sharper images than the original set that caused a few complaints."
So maybe that accounts for the unsharpness.
Thank you, Sam

I'm not getting this. They're the same images. Surely it's not a matter of applying anti-shock or careful focusing to RAW files.
What was done to make blurry images sharp?
The boat photo became much sharper. Same image.
marleni: As far as I know Dpreview, we will see lenghty reviews of each of these Canon models and super ratings before we can count to three ;-)
Give 'em hell, Rishi baby.
