ThomasSwitzerland: Ken Rockwell has just published snapshots on the D750 with the 20mm f/1.8.

http://kenrockwell.com/tech/00-new-today.htm

To me this represents outstanding journalistic quality in time and precision. Why cannot the so much larger <dpreview> deliver?

No axe to grind with KR but the shot seems to mostly highlight the cameras HDR capability. Are those wavy lines at the top of the red brick buildings old signs or moire'

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1666 comments in total)

Am a Canon user and love 'em.
However, doesn't the phrase "At Canon, We See Impossible"
have a negative connotation? How about ...At Canon, what others call impossible we see as a challenge? Or something like that.

munro harrap: The worst things about the D7100 are high ISO noise and no protective cover for the screen, which is a "real pain".

Here Nikon go one step further into lunacy by expecting you to scratch the screen as you wreck its delicate and poorly implemented mechanism yourself, ensuring you go out and buy the next replacement which MAY have a screen that folds into the body.

As there's nothing wrong with a D610 what exactly are they playing at? Us?

Don't own a D610 but did have a D600. From what I have read the 750 is much better at focusing in low light than either. That was something I disliked about the D600, but it might not be important to you.

Zeisschen: Does anybody here actually use that software coming with your cameras? I always have the feeling all camera makers just have to give that kind of software so nobody can complain about not beeing able to open raw files in Adobe etc when the camera comes out.
Seriously, I'm just interested. I for myself never touched any of them, didn't even give it a try. Did I miss anything?

EOS Utility allows control of the camera from your computer as well as the transfer of images.

DPP is far cheaper than the alternatives.

abortabort: Every time I read that 'serious Canon mirrorless is coming soon' gets me excited and then remember the 'we are already serious about mirrorless', this just says to me:

EOS-M = Serious
New mirrorless = Serious
New Mirrorless = More EOS-M

If you want people to believe that you are about to be releasing 'serious mirrorless' don't turn around and say that your laughed-out-of-north-america EOS-M line IS serious.

Justaphotographer, you hit the nail on the head with your last paragraph.

Just Ed: Yep, DPR is trolling for bad comments about Canon.

I think the DP staff has a unhealthy obsession with white cameras and accessories from any manufacturer. Think they post about them to hold the mfr up to ridicule.

Just Ed: For years I have been hearing about the pending demise of Apple, now the demise of Canon is predicted by the opinionated DP nerds. I should buy some Canon stock, my Apple shares over the last six years have allowed me to by a 27" iMac, two iPads , pay off my SUV and buy a Canon 6D with 24-70 f/4 and I still have more money than the original stock investment. Starbucks is doing fine also, but unfortunately I sold their stock when they came out with VIA, silly me!!!

Yes, my dear DP nerds:

Canon is dead
Apple is dead
Nikon is dead
Starbuck's has instant coffee

Somehow I think they know how to run their own businesses.

Gbdz, so that IF Canon or Nikon copied an Oly design they could crow that Olympus did it first. (Sarcasm)

Apple drags it feet on things like SD card slots for the iPhone/iPad and Adobe apps they don't like. Unfortunate link, Apple has more cash on hand now and in 2011 than any other Corporation in the world. Your story was about 1996....you need to read Steve's book.

And just for the record....I probably WON'T buy the Apple Watch, but because I hate watches in general. I won't buy the EOS M2 because I already have enough cameras.

Photomonkey: Canon did not set out to build an A7. They set out to create the next generation DSLR and as such seem to have improved every aspect of it.
Not adding the features that the hobbyists are clamoring for is not an oversight but a deliberate statement about their idea of what the camera should be.

If you are looking for the Swiss Army knife of cameras, look elswhere.

Tim, I think the problem is that you actually care about taking photos, many here just care about looking like they are photographers.

Mkiii is indeed awesome if the person behind the viewfinder knows what they are doing :-)

Jos1974: About the AF points:

in this link you see the D810 and the D750 https://www.flickr.com/photos/49543739@N05/15256922192/in/photostream/

you see here that the Af points of the D810 are a bit wider

Now this is the D750 and the D610 https://www.flickr.com/photos/49543739@N05/15070560949/

The D610 vs D810 makes a lot of difference in this matter
But the D610 vs D750 just a little bit, and it looks like the AF points are cluster in the center of the frame the same way – this is not the case with the D810

So if I buy the D750 because of a wider spread of the AF points compared to the D610 – the D810 would be a better option

Yeah, at some point it becomes a numbers game with out much shooting relevance. Like many shooters I tend to use the center point only and often tweak the focus with manual....sooooooo!

I like the idea of thw Nikon D750, but how in heck is it fair to compare the Canon 6D with it? The 6D is easily had for less than 1500 bucks.

Looks like a nice offering, glad to see Nikon taking a gamble on things like a tilt screen and built in Wi-Fi. Love the Wi-Fi and GPS on my 6D.

Keeping the subject in focus with that bright background at a high frame rate is impressive.

The 400 DO ii looks interesting. Wish they had shown the hood for it, the old one sucks, imo.

mpgxsvcd: As long as people keep buying Canon cameras they will keep making them. They aren't going to quit doing what they have been doing just because someone else makes a camera with different specs.

The real question is how long will what their doing last? Is the DSLR market really in decline? If it is then they could be in trouble because they have all but abandoned the mirror-less interchangeable lens camera market.

Not too long ago DP had an interview with Nikon execs wherein they stated mirrorless just didn't sell well in the US. Possible Canon sees it as a niche market?

In reply to:

Anastigmat: If I am going to spend $1800 on an APS-C camera, I would definitely scrape together another $500 for a full frame. 10 frames per second is nice but I would take better image quality instead because 100% of my photos will benefit, whereas 10 frames per second is only needed once in a great while.

Totally agree. The mk ii is going to be fine for sports and fast action photography. But ff still has the advantage for noise, at least right now.

I just bought my second 6D, this one with a 24-70 f/4 is for 2200 ( at least if canon actually send the 450 in rebates). Since my photography is more landscape and low light think ff is better for me. And at that price would not consider Aps-C ( have one but for the smaller size only).

PVCdroid: "Wishes have been granted in a big way"? DPReview could at least be honest about this camera. I'd be furious if Canon were my preferred brand.

It's almost exactly what Canon Rumors predicted.
