On P1010046 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

The camera goes to 1/16000 of a second. Why not open it up to wide open instead of crippling the detail with F11.0?

Why wouldn't you stop down a little further here? The background is just ever so slightly out of focus. Why not stop down another stop to get everything in focus.

I just don't understand why some of these sample images are stopped down when they shouldn't be and others are opened up when they should be stopped down.

It is as if the photographer or camera is selecting exactly the opposite of what it should select.

Your subject is in a single plane. Stopping down for more depth of field is simply a mistake here.

The background is out of focus anyway. So why F8.0? That isn't where the lens is sharpest.

F11? Diffraction is starting to set in by then. Is it worth it for a slightly broader depth of field? I don't think so.

Why F9 here? Nothing is out of focus and that certainly isn't where this lens is sharpest.

amd: This gentlemen seriously needs a press training. Never talk about negatives, always position positives. Don't mix "Canon sayd" with "we did..." if you want to be perceived as independent.
He seems to be a very respectable and nice guy, but this was pretty bad for a spokesperson.

Why not? Canon can say anything they want and their loyal customers just keep handing them their money. The only way for this to end is if those customers realize there are other options out there. That won't happen until the other companies catch up in lens department.

I am still amazed at how Canon can "do no wrong" in the eyes of their diehard customers. Yes they certainly have an extensive range of lenses that other companies like Sony and Fuji don't have yet.

However, those companies are building up their lens lineups quickly. One day the lack of lenses for other companies won't be an excuse. It is just a question of how long that will be.

When Canon speaks, everyone cringes.

Phones have been getting better and better at taking pictures and videos while point and shoot cameras are getting worse and worse at it.

Zerg2905: Predictable comments with an ever more predictable Silver Award ahead.

The Olympus OMD EM5 MKII can take 60 Megapixel images but everyone knows that isn't really a great thing to have.

That was the most depressing preview I have ever read.

Remember these cameras won't be released until at least June. There is still time for them to take the few remaining good features out.

By the time they actually release this camera it will just be a 50 Megapixel version of the Sony Mavica.

All of the other companies try to make a better camera. We decided to go in another direction. We just tried to make more money off of them.

Nope. This camera won't get an award at all just like the Nikon DF did.

Canon to their customers : "If we just tell them this camera is better do you think they will believe us?"

Hasselblad announced a 5DS clone just now. The only difference is that theirs cost less than the Canon version.

Canon to all of their customers: "Everyone complained so much about the new features in the 5D MKIII that we just took them all out. Your WELCOME!"
