So, Sony has created nose-detection focus mode. Brilliant!

kodakrome: Okay, so you take a photo with this camera, then take the same shot with a 70D, then take the 2 pics and print them at 13 x 19. Will you be able to tell which is which? Probably not.

Your point. Koda? Didn't think you had one.

IvanM: I would argue high DR is almost essential for amateurs or beginners...people that dont want/have the skill to expose properly. But having said that those types of photographers are probably not going to have access to post production tools like LR etc, so does it really matter, like you rightly asked? The flipside is that all Canons come with the 'free' DPP software, and if one has the patience to try it out there are some very good options in there to 'fix' poorly exposed images....but then one would have to shoot RAW, and how many beginners actually do that, or need to do that....thats maybe why Canon entry level cameras sell so well. My cousin just bought a 760D, his first 'serious' camera and his purchase was made because he perceived the Canon 760 to be 'easy to use', he trusted and knew the brand and he thought the Nikon would be too complicated...no mention of DR or noisy sensors....

Not true. The beginners are the ones with kit lenses, shoot in jpg, and usually at most only crop their photos. Only a small percentage of those beginners have or spend the time to further develop their jpgs. Those that post on dpr don't represent a cross section of beginners.

RedFox88: Author: you need to reexamine your thought process if you really think a barely noticeable rock is very important to the image. I did not notice it until I read your mention of it being "important".

The foreground is dead fish not a dark, little, and barely noticeable rock!

I'm reading the article. Those using a computer " screen" these days for Web are few and far between. This rock isn't noticeable unless someone points it out if you view is hugely enlarged and are looking for little things. It has no contributions to the "impact" element if this pic.

If Leica made this they'd market it as a 24mm and a 35mm prime both f/2 in one lens. And they'd charge $4500 for it!

Joe Ogiba: The new Samsung NX500 with much larger APS-C sensor has 4K UHD , 28mp and with 16-50mm power zoom OIS lens is $599. It has the same sensor as the NX1 that I just got that works great with my old lenses.

75mm vs. 600mm what are you smoking?

mpgxsvcd: It isn’t a bad camera. However, it is just simply a little late. There were too many great options in this category last year. Everyone bought a camera back then.

I am sure they will sell plenty of these cameras. However, it definitely would have sold better if it was announced last June instead of this June and I don’t see any reason they couldn’t have made this camera before now.

There is simply too much competition now. Which is a good thing for consumers but not so great for manufacturers that are selling less and less cameras every year.

Riiiiiiight. Everyone in the world already has this type of camera and will never buy another again. LOL. Troll.

Gesture: More like 73. Please review your cons. $850 and I can't select the AF point? Is that so?

Since when is $850 expensive? Is a common price $400 for newly launched dslrs?!

Peter62: I can't see any real improvement over the 6 years old 18MP sensor.

Buy a Nikon D3200 with 18-55 VR lens for 299 Euros brandnew - and you'll save 500 Euros and get better images!

Hope Canon recovers before it's too late...

skysi: Just $100 less than the 70D? Is this a joke?. This is basically a toy camera.

The 70D is what 2 years old? It's priced well now and the T6s is new and compact.

Will T: Who is the idiot that wrote this stuff.

It is not "Large Format" it is 35mm format!

Large Format is 4x5 inches and larger.

35mm is called small format.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I really don’t understand why they put the little screen on top of the camera. That is the last place I would want information to be displayed. I have to bring the camera down to be able to check that information. What is the need for it anyway? Can’t all of that information just be displayed on the LCD screen on the back of the camera?

It's a smaller top lcd so it won't have all that the 70D or 5D3 shows. No metering or chosen af point. What's important that you need to see is iso, shutter speed, aperture, af focus mode.

Canon 70D OR 760D Rebel T6: What is better 760D or 70D for someone who aspires to become a pro?
Still have no answer! :/

Saying d750 is better is like saying a Porsche is better than a Honda. D750 is double the price of even the 70D.
