nananananana: I wish people would stop assuming that dynamic range is a defining factor when people buy these cameras. You do realize that you can't see high dynamic range from a regular photographs. The only way Dynamic Range might matter is for people who do very heavy post editing.

We dun care about dynamic range. Stop assuming we do. What I care about is:

-COLOR ACCURACY (thank you low pass filter)
-LOW WEIGHT
-CONVENIENCE
-GOOD JPEG QUALITY
-GOOD APS-C LENS SELECTION THAT ISN'T TOO EXPENSIVE AND LIGHTWEIGHT
-FREE SOFTWARE LIKE DPP
-ERGONOMICS

Canon provides all the above, which is why they ship cameras.

We do not care about dynamic range or micro adjust. And by we, I mean the target audience for these cameras. People who buy these cameras have a life outside of photography, they are not pro photographers.

You should download and play around with a nikon file. Or maybe not....You know what they say, once you go NEF you never go back.

KonstantinosK: "...they've garnered plenty of attention since then...". Really?

@justmemn If a car has an engine displacing 2.0L and they up it to 2.4L the next year but still has the same power and horrible has mileage....its not much of an upgrade. As far we can tell, canon has bumped up the resolution. People might still shut up because no one really expects or cares much about the rebel series anyway. Im sure bestbuy and other stores will still sell a boat load to non informed buyers. On a positive note, This camera shoots great Jpegs and lags behind only when it comes to raw files.

for the price, I would just get the Fuji T10, Pani G7 or the awesome Oly OM5 MK2. Electronic viewfinders are now better than most small penta mirror style optical VF.

So many nice cameras on the market, canon needs to re-invent the rebel line of cameras to keep up. One thing is for sure, they cant keep this basic design and sensor around for another 6 years.

Mssimo: Not sure why Leica didn't just pick up the phone and call the 8 people it sold the cameras to.

Can't Be that many, camera just came out and I don't think it's even in stock at any stores yet.

Leica is not to blame. It includes lightroom with the camera AND apple photos app just came out. Its the the companies responsibility to verily compatibility with all software manufactures.

Also, as far as I understand, the bug keeps the photos app launching. This should not corrupt the library unless the user deletes it before apple comes out with a fix.

On Sources of noise part two: Electronic Noise article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: Question: As far as shot noise... Would a APS-C camera with a speed booster have the same low noise performance as a full frame assuming the same lens is used?

A light bulb went off now, I guess large(r) format lenses spread out light reducing the "hot spots". I guess thinking of it as a little boy burning ants with a magnifying glass. Given a fixed light source, the smaller the circle the hotter the light. Medium format circle would cause a very soft light across the huge sensor leading to more dynamic range.

Maybe I need to read it again but is shot noise has to do with the quantity of light correct? So if an adapter reduces the image circle, you would have the same amount of light but in a smaller area. In other words, if an speed booster allows APC shooter to use ISO 100 vs ISO (400-800) on full frame, the image quality when it comes to Shot noise could be the same.

OBI656: Fuji and Sony will pretty soon replace positions of Canon and Nikon in market place ...

I think canon and nikon will keep making the best DSLRs on the market, but that market will grow smaller every year. To keep this from happening, they need to stop the bleeding and we have not seen anything from canon or nikon that show that they are on top of the game. At least canon makes lots of money off printers.

coody: Why can't it be designed better from the beginning but has to go through the firmware updating? Can the firmware perfectly resolve the flaw? Usually the more firmware updating has, the more problems the product has.

Why not make a perfect camera that will last forever, never have any issues, never need upgrading and always take perfect pictures? This is the real world; as soon as we hear about a new camera, they are already working on the next model or next firmware. They did not need to release this huge update but they want to camera to stay cutting edge and maybe win over customers. It is also less expensive than to retool a factory.

Canon and Nikon are not going away overnight and they will keep the large share of the DSLR market. The key here is the DSLR market will shrink and level off just like the 35mm film market has. My guess is that non Pro will only own celphone camera, 80% of the semi pro and pro will go to mirrorless/large sensor cameras. Canon and nikon will first get rid of mirror and optical VF on (D5300/T6i) class cameras but keeping lens compatibility. Sports cameras will stick around for longer as DSLRs but 4-6K video cameras (20-40MP) will take over sports since they will shoot at 30-120fps non stop for the whole game. Im a little sad to see DSLRs go away but it will happen, maybe 2 years, maybe 6 years...but it will happen.

Kodak also had a "foothold". Also, android is a operation system based on linux kernel. Apple sells phones not operating systems. Would you like to share apples phone market share or should we talk operating systems? Before you say linux vs apple, iOS is also based on linux.

@prossi Im sure samsung, motorola, nokia and others said the same thing about apple about 8 years ago. If you think about it, camera phones outsell DSLRs by crazy numbers...so its a mute point. Canon and nikon are going to die off and replaced by many players including celphones/mirrorless.

You don't have to update your camera. Most users loved the camera as is. If your Nikon, maybe you can rename the model X-T1.10 with new firmware and handful of very minor changes and start charging MSRP again.

Mssimo: Im willing to bet we will have a autofocus crisis when this camera hits the market. This is the beginning of the end of phase detection auto-focus and one of the last popular DSLRs before the big decline. Mirrorless is going to hit strong and hard, only obstacle they still have is subject tracking and lens selection. Auto focus accuracy, single shot AF speed, image quality, shutter speed, HUGE viewfinders, and tons of momentum. I will miss SLR but im excited to see the biggest change in photography since analog to digital.

I was speaking of the Leica type 240 and Noctilux 50mm f/0.95. Even nikon has come out with a guide on the D800E that recommends using liveview focus vs PD for most accurate focus. On top of all of that, most lenses have an amount of focus shift when stopping down. Its always best to focus at the fstop you plan on using if you have the light to do so. Contrast Detect also can focus on any part of the sensor including the edges and has great face detection.
