The announcement was about "Canon" changing name to "Cannot".
Canon "saw the impossible": people stop claiming Canon is the best because "pros use Canon gear". People bought Canon and now they see the difference with their friends gear. They spent $$$ on Canon lenses and they are looking how to adapt them to use Sony sensors.
Canon "did the impossible": they sell less for more. Just sell 2008 technology for more money.
Canon offers the "impossible to buy": 8k$? or a useless printer to carry in the subway for a quickly printed selfie?
Pics do not look convincing. Too much noise (as much as my 7D) and not satisfactory colors (where 7D is excellent). Great mechanical engineering may be, but for the price, I want better IQ.
People that own a small sensor camera vote for such cameras. I do not see the aim of such a poll as physics dictates that the larger sensors are better. It is not a matter of opinion.
More one asks from his gear, bigger sensor one needs.
He believes that Canon sensors are at the level of Sony sensors, lol!
CeleryBeats: My Fuji XE-2 produces better looking high iso shots. At least in JPEG.
A7 looks to be a great camera. But damn Fuji got some magic going on.
Just comparing for example the pictures for the lower color wheel, I see that your comment is non-sense both for the details and colors.
Put the aooming square on the black paint tube. Then compare:1) A7 best2) A7r secondD800 and 5D mark III behind. D800 gets very noisy above 3200 ISO while the Canon loses details but has less noise.Newer models are better tanks to progress or is it due to the better lenses used?
I was thinking to upgrade from 7D to 5DmkIII. Now, I will wait and see if Canon reacts with something a bit smarter than a white painting. If not, I will buy an A7r and a metabones adaptor. I will then forget Canon bodies keeping only my beloved Canon lenses.
The part with the strings on the bottom is sharpest with the K5IIs. K5II is sharper than K5. Some extra in-camera sharpening?
Moiré is too present in the K5IIs for my taste.
