How come J5 is so much sharper, with better noise too?

Xentinus: Nikon 85mm 1.8 G is a real gem!

Strange, what I see is that Canon 85/1.8 is better than Nikon 85/1.8G - even with higher pixel density of 50MP. Otus 85/1.4 is better than both Canon/Nikon but the Canon is not bad IMHO.

robjan245: DPR is being overly generous with a silver rating for this POS.

should have been a plastic reward, not silver.

Pic Man: I know someone who recently just bought a canon 700D for his girlfriend and he knew nothing about photography. He bought a canon DSLR because it's a brand he recognised and because it's a DSLR, so it must be good. Canon don't need to push the boat out with new features and better sensors because they have the brand. Having said that the 700D is still a good camera which will take excellent pictures. They have nice straight out of camera jpegs which is important to most. I also have to say that the 700d was one of the most comfortable cameras I've held. I'm sure it's the same with the 750/760D.

I don't know about cheap plastic American tanks.

In reply to:

AJDVD: Why I get the feeling that the tests in DP review are less thorough than before. Just take an old test from an earlier Rebel and compare for example the conclusion sector.
And why every camera wins an award anyway. No point when everything is exellent. I think DP should rethink the point-award part.

It couldn't be more thorough for an overpriced plastic camera with somewhat outdated sensor tech.

Basically DPR tells you to buy D5500 over the overpriced Rebels ;)

I've been using J5 for a month, the size is small but nothing small about the result! If only there were more NIkon 1 lenses...

nananananana: I like people comparing a $125 lens to $1000 sigma lenses and saying it's not as good. You want a cookie for that conclusion or something?

For the money, it's probably one of the best lenses you can buy. The only thing I find is that the bokeh looks smeary instead of clean, but that's more a personal opinion. This lens will sell like (pan) hotcakes.

Yes, for $125 it's NICE 50mm. If you can't use it then it's not about the lens ;)

kfahlman: I've had the M246 for a couple of weeks now, since its release.
It's an amazing camera, I have an M240 as well, so the learning curve was non existent.
The tonal range of the files are excellent, far better than conversion of the M files through Silver Efex.

This camera is worth every penny.
If you can't afford one, to bad. But don't knock it until you've tried it.

@badi :P

small m4/3 sensor against FF without CFA? for B&W? Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about! ROFLMAO

This is DPR, what do you expect? people will bash it just because they can't afford it or at least have no idea about the IQ offered. Later on, expect some smaller sensor users that will preach on how their mirrorless being superior blah blah blah ;)

In reply to:

ekaton: Why f1.4 for a wide lens? For light gathering ability? But sensor sensitivities take sufficiently care of this these days, at much lower cost. For dof control? This is limited with a wide lens anyway - get a longer lens for real dof control. Just because they can? So it seems.

Sounds like what you need is an 18-200 lens and call it a day.

Just for fun I replaced the EOS 700D with 7D mk II, seems like the T6i/s have weaker AA filter which is a good thing at 24MP. The studio comparison looks much more promising than the earlier real world samples.

Everlast66: Sony A6000 looks way better than any of these two and is at the end of its life-cycle waiting to be replaced.

Justifying your purchase of A6000? LOL

vesa1tahti: D7200 is the clear winner. Cheers.

D7200 is very slightly smoother at high iso, but nothing significant. I wouldn't call it a clear winner.

noflashplease: I can't imagine anyone buying a new Canon Rebel on the basis of these photos. For some reason, I'm seeing soft images, so I don't know if it's a lens issue, or a focus issue? The dynamic range and noise are also horrific for 2015.

Don't say that - I just said the same thing and I got lectured by the fanboys. Somehow we could not expect better IQ from a $849 DSLR? That's not right ;) As a matter of fact, I've seen much better outputs from other 24MP APS cameras. But hey, if Canon makes it then it has to be it!
