Great shot, really love the composition and gradations of grey.

Pitzik: This article is again disappointing.... Such bias by DPReview!
The only camera compared in the table is Nikon D7100. What about the others? Pentax K3, for e.g..
THEN the driver of the topics is just to highlight the "good thing" in there. Sure is a wonderful toy, don't disagree, but some key feature that are useful to the Photographers (not to the marketing office) are again missing. For e.g.:
Is it effectively weather sealed? ("enhanced" sound funny)
Is the body solid metal framed?
what is the shooting lag time?
how many frames per battery charge declared?

These will help much more

1. Yes, my 7D has been in many rainy environments, never failed and the Mk II is better sealed.
2. Yes, solid magnesium frame, like all Canon pro grade cameras.
3. ~50 milliseconds
4. Reported over 400, as stated in the preview with the higher capacity Li-Ion battery.

Hope this helps you decide, it is great that the camera manufacturers have lots of competition, you can select the brand and model that suits your needs and budget best.

fl00d: MY GOD Cannon are boring. Will there ever come a day that they make something interesting?

You mean besides making some of the best most capable DSLRs ever available on the market?

spontaneousservices: If it's really for "manual everything" photographers, where's the dedicated ISO wheel? Still the old film mindset, amazing, really. So many years after film disappeared from the camera body, changing ISO is still more involved than changing shutter speed or aperture.
But what would really make me buy such a camera (more than flip screen or ISO wheel) is a fixed 50mm equivalent lens. Sigh. Maybe one day...

I'm sure ISO is not that hard to change, and I believe Fuji sell a 50mm equivalent add-on lens, so there you go...

Five Piece: This will be a fantastic camera, just like the Mk I is a fantastic camera, but really much better overall. One thing I really like is the locking mode dial like in the 5D, I am always changing that accidentally when I remove it from the camera bag. The Live View phase detect focus is a much welcomed new feature I will use often. And "4x weather sealing" can only be a good thing, my 7D has been shooting in pouring rain and snow, never a problem. What a camera!

Thanks for the info, dongraff, but I think the issue will be OBE by the end of the year or so... ;)

mosc: LX100: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention it does 4K video too! Or even mention the independent aperture, shutter, and exposure dials.

7D: Did you notice we put in an all new senor that we can't tell you has any actual differences between it and the 70D senor we announced more than a year ago? It's got a newer DIGIC chip than a camera we made 5 years ago, didn't you see? That's good for all kinds of things that don't have any affect on your RAW files.

How is the LX100 at shooting fast-moving sports at 10fps, 300mm lens with servo-tracking your subject? And what an ignorant comment about the exposure controls, you missed the little wheel behind the shutter release, and the one below your thumb rest, what are those, chopped liver? In conjunction with the plethora of secondary function buttons you can change ISO, drive mode, etc. etc. without taking your eye from the viewfinder, Lx100? Really, put brain in gear before engaging typing fingers.

So much negativity here folks! Listen to these yokels and you must conclude no camera can ever take a usable shot? I have enjoyed my 7D immensely the last 5 years, still use it regularly even though primary is 5D3, for frame rate, crop factor, more dangerous situations, etc. Likely will obtain Mk II. I love getting satisfying captures with any camera, even use Note 3 lots, instant post and all...

Lawrence33: "God must have loved the amateur, he made so many."

I think that some of the Ego's here, need to get out from behind their,
'Wiz-Bang' Cameras. And take a look at the world around them.
Been at it since 1948. Earned a living at it from 1960.
By the way, what have you done lately ?

Critics are a dime apiece. Keep the change.

Dear Black Box (and your ilk here at dpreview):

Sorry about you're having to be stuck in you mom's basement for life, hopefully better fortunes await you in the future....

Five Piece: Nice shot, Erez. Funny these "Armchair Experts" availing their opinions below never seem to enlighten us with examples of their own photographic prowess in their galleries. Personally, I would ignore this site altogether except there are many exceptional photographers (yourself included, of course) from whom I draw inspiration and ideas, just have to ignore the idjuts, I guess.

Perhaps need to start getting vaccinations for Namibia soon?

No worries, indeed! Your are traveling the world, making a living photographing breathtaking locations. For me the experience itself is even more important than the final photograph. The challenge to always improve my photographs is also a puzzle to be cherished. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing your insights with us.
