About me:

Photography is a side-line, fashion photography as a job (won awards), portraiture and street photography as an "amateur" hobby. Strangely I "create" pictures, but on the long term, I discovered other things in my pictures, I am not constructing them or choosing them, when I look at the past 20 years, they have things in common, the creation is probably more than the creator, even an hidden part of him...

iAPX: IS there anything sharp, somewhere in this picture?!?

Seems the 28MP sensor deliver no more than a D300 12MP sensor

Oh I know and appreciate the per picel quality of the D300 with high-end lenses, it's one of the thing that makes me love it, event after 7 or 8years using it (it's built like a tank!), in RAW it's awesome.

martindpr: Bracketing, anybody?? Needs at least -2/3EV, though the quality is awesome, who needs FF these days?...

Maybe someone that want to have real dynamic, instead burned skies???

The bokeh is really ugly. Is it the full-frame-killer that Samsung announced?!?

is there anything really sharp at 100 ISO f/3.5?

This is *NOT* what we expect.

Same as Nikon_D5500-ISO100-DSC_0110: even at f/7.1 ISO 100, nothing is really sharp (even if excessive sharpening is applied as in this case), proving that there's no real-world 24MP resolution on APS-C sensor.

Good demonstration on this one: Nikon_D5500-ISO100-DSC_0110

Nothing is sharp at f/4.5, even in the center of the image, proving if necessary that actual lenses could not cope with this sensor. This is a shame, Nikon (and Canon and Sony) should stay at 16Mp or less in APS-C, increasing dynamic range in low ISO and decreasing noise at high ISO, instead of producing needless Megapixels!

Franka T.L.: Unless there's something magical about that sensor I fail to see a point here

"Magical" seems to be for the latest sony sensors, for example on D750 or D610 where you could be sensibility-unaware, shooting at 200 ISO instead 6400ISO (as required, with -5EV), having similar noise after +5EV correction in RAW, but an incredibly high Dynamic Range.

This is "magic" for what I know, compared to old slrs (ie my D300), and it may change the way you do exposure, breaking rules that are century old!

Sensibility of the A7s sensor is also "magical" for me, and another breakthrough that open incredible possibilities that weren't available before.

misha marinsky4: Vaporware

This is 3D rendering, not "working prototype". And it shows.

It's clearly vaporware at this point!

Interesting idea, I wonder if they will use the Leica M mount from start (I would if I were them!), for Full Frame and APS-C versions.

I don't see the point for APS-C, but I see the point for Full Frame with 12MP sensor of Sony Alpha 7s, for incredibly sharp and noiseless street photography, at 6400 ISO and largely over that. Knowing that full-frames rangefinders have trouble to get in perfect focus with faster lenses and 20MP+ sensors. (there are pictures in DPReview done by real great photographers on Leica M that demonstrate that point!)

Seems lenses have progressed incredibly to resolve all those details ;)

Larger and heavier files, more storage, more processing power, this is a non-sense, Canon should have stayed in the 20-something MP league.

Exciting camera to take with me each and everyday, maybe with a 30mm f/2 (to stay compact) ?

Class A: Fantastic news!

What's will all the haters acting on their foul mood on this great occasion?

Do we Pentaxians comment on Canon releases that their sensors are outdated? Do we comment on Nikon DSLR releases that Nikon is unable to allow one to adjust f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO without taking one's eye off the viewfinder (their ISO button placement is broken, every time)?

Knowing Pentax, this new FF model will be rock-solid, a joy to handle in all weather conditions, and will feature image stabilisation for all lenses (old or new) for a very attractive price.

The IQ will be outstanding, as Pentax have proven with their MF and APS-C models, and will definitely surpass that of the already great APS-C models.

What's not to like?

As a nikon user, I should agree that on some, as the Nikon D610, ISO button is not where it should be, and everytime, I have to put my eye off the OVF to setup ISO. Anyway I am the kinda guy that set up it before shooting, including Auto-ISO limits, so it's not so much a problem.

But I have to agree, I would like to be able to change ISO the same way Canon offered it on it's G10: it should have it's dedicated controller!

F**K!

I awaited for it since at least 8 years and my old Pentax K10D, a great digital slr on my point-of-view, with an awesome interface, including specific priorty mode (ISO-oriented).

This is a gateway from APS-C Pentax slr to Medium-format Pentax 645xyz ;)

I am excited to see how things goes, the lens compatibility and offer. And the interface itself to see if it's worth to have a mix of APS-C, Full-Frame and medium-format.

iAPX: Noise noise noise...

Clearly I see it far behind Full Frame slr, in the same price category. Samsung saying that it want NX1 to be a $5000 camera challenger, image quality should be a given, not underpart!

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)
In reply to:

tirmite: The people who gripe about "exploitation" and "greed" and price gouging need to take a few economics courses. Profit is what keeps a company in business. If you don't think it's worth the money, don't buy it. If the market thinks something is overpriced then it won't sell. If new technology comes along and does something cheaper, better, faster then it will rise to the top. Canon obviously sold some at $12000. And they sold some more at $10,000. Now they'll sell more at $8000. At that price I'm considering another Canon 1D after switching to Sony a7's . I'll keep my Sony's, because each camera has it's own niche. I've owned several 1D versions and 5D versions and their IS a difference in performance, durability, reliability even between those two. Those qualities are worth a price. Three years ago to have a 4K camera with a small form factor was cutting edge and "worth" it to some pros. And now it's "worth" $8000 to some people. No one will be FORCED to buy it.

Agree, and if someone think it should have been sold at a $2000 price point, why not start your own business, make the perfect competitor and make Canon out-of-business? lol!

Ouch! What a price drop!

But I think that I would consider BlackMagic instead, if I where to consider doing movie shooting...

kpaddler: "Not built for extended use in cold conditions"

As usual, DP doesn't disappoint with its useless points raised.

The camera lasts in cold weather longer than the people who carry it.

I live in Montreal, today it's -20 centigrad (-4 farenheit), monday it was -30 centigrad (-22 farenheit). That's life, my pocket camera is on my jeans or on my bag everyday, and it have to work everyday, whatever the weather.

SO I appreciate this kind of information, all my cameras were working greatly by these temperatures, my iPhone seems to shut down automaticlly sometimes when I am outside too much. I don't care about my smartphone, but I do care about my cameras, I want the limit to be the ability of my hands and fingers to endure real frost, not having battery problems.
