I have many excellent L lenses, what i need is new better Canon bodies with similar performance to Sony/Nikon sensors.

In reply to:

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: when I read about the body only price, I thought I was day dreaming!Cheapo Leica? but then saw the kit lens price... it brought me back to the reality!

It's so cheap Leica could not even include an EVF at that price...

Ramius: Camera body same as Sony A7, but not full format = Fail.

Full frame but only few lenses and one of them is an overpriced zoom that cannot produce sharp corners. Fail.

In reply to:

Provia_fan: I agree with so many of you. That's exactly what Bresson, Winogrand, Gilden, Eggleston used to say. They packed their cameras and went home saying "Poor phase detection, no face detection and no touchable screen, no HDR mode, EVF too small and too big....can't shoot!" Because they depended on all these things, that's how they built their careers. :P

"Poorly lit gym" - any sport events held there must not be important at all. I won't even go there, let alone carrying a camera LOL

For such an extensive review, why hasn't DPR tried other RAW converters for Fuji? Clearly ACR is the worst of all for processing X-Trans files including X20/X10. There are Iridient Developer, C1 Pro, PhotoNinja, and others. Of course, from the review I could see DPR loves OOC JPG too much.

Morpho Hunter: "The only way is to keep innovating". Which reads "the only way is to keep copying Olympus".

Another insecure small sensor user trying to justify its purchases...

Zeisschen: With the a6000 news just prior to this, it's hard to believe both product pictures are made in the same year 2014. Compared to the modern Sony design this camera just looks like a cheap plastic tool from the 90s.

I stand corrected. Looks like plenty of lenses to choose from; many would not even be sharp on NEX-7, esp in the corners. Those focal lenghts are also mostly similar. To waitformee - LOL adapters? Yeah you could adapt anything, but I've used Fuji and A7 for a while, I wouldn't call shooting adapted lenses hassle-free! For assignments I'd still take my DSLRs.

this plastic cheap tool by Nikon has a lot more lenses to choose from. How many E mount Sony lenses are there? LOL, yeah the zeiss ones are good but mostly overpriced.

kewlguy: Looking at the IQ daylight comparison with EOS 700D - why does the Canon have better accutance and/or micro contrast? better lens? D5300 image shows as if there is a haze.

Ryan, I agree with you as I have 6Ds myself. I just wanted to see if the D5300 with AA filter could have the same IQ as D7100, but looking at the samples I wonder why it is softer than both 700D and D7100. Unless DPR used a different lens...

Oops, change the RAW 700D to Nikon D7100 - the D5300 looks even softer!

RyanBoston: I've had this camera since Christmas and love it. The workability in raw is incredible, especially with good glass. Amazing detail and colors! Pulling shadows is amazing.

I've had the D40, D60, D90, D5000, D5100, and T2i. The D5300 is my favorite out of them all and am amazed at the quality of the pics.

Slap a Sigma lens on the D5300 and be prepared to be amazed.

No it won't. He slapped a Sigma lens on the D5300...

Change from Jpg to raw, if you can't see it than you're blinded by your fanboyism. D5300 has no AA filter that's why I asked...

Looks like Sony is trying hard to collect some cash - but I'm sure A7/R users are rich so this lens will sell like peanuts

At least Canon remembered to put a sensor inside the state of the art entry camera...

If only DPR wants to use other raw converters, the comparison will be a totally different story...

In reply to:

_P: Question for Fuji owners: there was a huge problem with RAW processing software, that's inducing Adobe, which - in short - wasn't able to refine fine details. The only one doing a decent job was Photo Ninja. How is the situation with this regard now?

Anyway, what a beautiful / terrible times!
D610: 1329 GBP
E-m1: 1300 GBP
A7: 1230 GBP
X-t1: 1059 GBP
6D: 1350 GBP

I'm on the market to upgrade from E-1. Got E-PL5 for my wife already and its fine for casual use, but I don't like it for landscapes very much, so I will not like E-m1. Now, taking into account that it cost THE SAME as D610, some serious question have to be asked... I would consider myself mad if i'd choose E-m1 over D610 for landscapes and low light work, though on the other hand Nikon is terrible with manual focusing over VF. So if FUJI RAWs can now be processed into something decent to wonderful that may be just the perfect compromise. Also seems best option for MF lenses with those different kinds of MF support in it.

what raw situation? I have been using X-E1 for 7 months and use C1 Pro and Iridient Developer with great success. I also own Canon FF and IMO Fuji X-trans is as close as any APS could to FF. If your main interest is landcape photography, get the D610 or 6D. For low light and compact size the Fujis will do just fine (even the old X-Pro1).

arqomx: Will there be a silver body offering?

Want silver? buy Df! It will give you bling for a lot more money, too if that's important to you.
