"There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony ..."
This is really sad.
What a pity!

On 2014 Readers' Polls: The results are in! article (374 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Ennis: As a Canon user, I was glad to see them without any wins. Hopefully it will be a(nother) wakeup call that the company is being left behind. Hats off to Sony, they do appear to be hungry. The DP Review interview with the Canon executive a few months back was one of the most complacent statements I've ever heard from someone representing a technology based company. Will someone please sound the alarm at Canon HQ?

No, but for the optic, they have...

allkar: What does this poll? Unfortunately nothing!
I see 9 products, not all belong to the best
and miss the other, good gear.

Oh yes indeed, that would be something :)
Only simultaneous general overview, may be the right

Sorry, but it should be possible to select from all new products of 2014,
not only from the pre-selected. This is not representative.
The trend is targeted

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1274 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dave Oddie: Seems to me this camera is all about the pro level tank-like build quality, fast AF and the 10fps.

Very useful for a pro sports photographer with the crop sensor giving more reach but outside that market it is pretty disappointing. Not many amateurs need the tank-like build and even my "old" A77 is faster at 12fps.

If you are a typical amateur who shoots a variety of subjects it doesn't seem compelling at all due to the sensor limitations, especially given the price.

Canon cameras always handle really well with well thought out ergonomics but this and tank like build are not enough anymore.

You're absolutely right.
Not everyone has to drive a Ferrari.
The suspension is too hard, the engine is too nervous.
Drive your old Toyota with comfort for granny :)

On Canon EOS-1D X overview article (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peter Keene: dpreview.com built its reputation for comprehensive, honest reviews when it was a small, almost one-man, shop based in the UK. Since moving to the US a few years back and greatly expanding it's staff I'm afraid it has become less and less credible. Interested in a small brand point and shoot? They've got it covered. Interested in a camera from one of the two pro systems? Go elsewhere.

The combination of dpreview and DxO (which is for me not really objective), is another negative point here. Sad

DigitalWalnut: No Sigma 120-300mm Sport?

The announcement/release dates are not important for me. One first class lens can stay at top for longer time, not only one year. This mix of different lenses types for different systems is not realy succesfful idea.

On Coming soon: Lens Reviews to return to dpreview.com article (272 comments in total)

I think, cooperation with DXO is a step back for this page.
DXO's reviews of the optics, (above all ranking) are often misleading for the user and potential buyers.
There are better alternatives on the market.
