nerd2: Put in D800 shutter box (1/8000 max shutter, 1/250 sync, 8fps max shooting) and this would be THE successor of D700. Yes I know it will never happen. Yes I know D750 is still the best all-around FF camera overall out there.

they could do that becouse of the now absolete CCD sensors.
You can't have both the class leading High ISO performance this gives and a electronic global shutter at the same time. It's just impossible.

Mimik: My d70s has 1/8000 and 1/500 x-sync

These old Nikon's used CCD sensors.
therefore you did not get rolling shutter when using electronic shutter nor the strange lighting artifacts in fluorescent lighting.

The only fullframe CCD sensor i know off is the Leica M9. Large CCD's tend to be very expensive due to their complexity. And they don't do well in low-light High ISO.

However base-ISO performance has always been very good and therefore these dated designs still get a lot of love.

Ron A 19: Seems like the D750 seems to have a sharper image at full resolution, but could this be partly because the Canons are using a lens that is 22 years older? The 85mm USM cannot outresolve the 85mm G (compare them on thedigitalpicture.com). If DPReview wants to compare these two cameras on a resolution basis, why don't they use the same lens on different bodies? A third party reference lens like the Sigma Art or Zeiss otus would be the perfect way to show limitations of a sensor rather than a cheapo circa '92 lens.

And then the Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART will already give a big boost to more consistent studio comparisons. This lens can show the difference of higher MP sensors without AA filter when stopped down a bit.

And it also seems to do well on Apsc meaning it can be use on a lot of systems.

Then it's cost places it into the realm of serious amateurs. the exact public DPreview wants to adress with these tests. So the Sigma is a 10/10 lens for these comparisons.

Ramjager: The 5Dmk3 AF system is "behind the times"!
Talk about garbage hyperbole writing.
41 cross sensors? Seriously.
Maybe rather than writing hyperbole the author should spend some time taking photos that require AF rather than making up utter garbage on a keyboard.
The 1DX focus module is still THE BEST action AF system period and the 5Dmk3 uses that very system.
Typical of DPR these days authors with little if any knowledge of the subjects they discuss is a norm
Wakey wakey DPR stop writing hyperbole based off zero experience.
Given how dated the Canon AF module is 90% of the worlds sports photogs should be upgrading from there 1Dx's that dominate sidelines because it's AF is behind the times!
Yea right.

And my guess is that you did not make the switch for the AF performance:D.

I do think the D750 is overall a better camera then the more expensive 5d mk2. Just not in the AF department. would consider them more or less equal from limited experience.

That means both excellent!.

AllOtherNamesTaken: Pretty crazy that the 5DM3 is still priced anywhere near $3,000. You'd have to be out of your mind to pay that in this environment unless you absolutely needed one for a job or something.

i did rather buy a proper camera that does that internally in 4k
It's called the Sony FS7

Horshack
Please read the second AF performance page of the review
then check the video. and then think about the system for a couple of minutes.

It's a nice piece of technology that seems to work as advertised. On the other hand the PDAF module of the 5d mk3 is still second to none likewise for the 1dx.

If it only focussed the lens onto a Sony sensor.

Hadley.
What is Canon offering for videographers lately?
The 7d mk2 is soft mushy crap footage with a good AF system that you can't apreciate with the lack of touchscreen

The C100 mk2 is a bad joke. 28mbps AVCHD tops.

Amin Sabet: Great review, and I love the demonstrations of exposure latitude and ISO invariance. Really well done!

Hope to see these tools include D810 soon.

it means that at ISO 200 with the D750 you can under expose for up to 5 stops. and prevent highlights from blowing out.
Then increase the exposure is in post by 5 stops and still have the same noise as a image taken at ISO 6400.

You can basicly make a HDR in one shot using that technique. And this is impossible on the competitors from Canon.

That means it sucks to be a former Canon user, Since they don't seem to get the nice bodies.

Great score for a overall great camera.
I compared it to the 6d with the comparison tool
And then saw the 6d pull ahead in low-light/high ISO.
Which is the opposite of what i could read in the review.

Now i understand why this happened with the 7d/7dmk2 in the video spec.
Considering the developments in those 5 years in that category were massive.

However the High ISO capability of fullframe camera's have not improved as much in those 2 years. So i wonder why the D750 got a lower rating on the high ISO score compared to the 6d.

VJVIS: Just curious about scoring. Panasonic GM1 got 78% and Gold award, Fuji X-M1 got 77% and Gold Award, and dpreview states that "Scoring is relative only to the other cameras in the same category" and these two obviously belong to the same category, so how does that make Fuji the overall winner?

i don't think anyone will ever mount the massive nocticron on the tiny gm1.

However even the olympus 45mm f1.8 gives the gm-1 portrait capability compacts can't even dream about. and it will remain light and tiny.

Hedley7d: How CAN you give to this camera a lower score in video mode than the Sony SLT-A99 when the SLT Autofocus is not even compatible with manual exposure control in video mode. On the Sony the camera's AF system can only be used in Program mode, where - if you've also selected Auto ISO - your exposure control is limited to exposure compensation of +/-2 EV. no magnified live view and no histogram on the SLT.

So you got beaten by arguments on video quality so you start complaining on other obvious drawbacks.
geez. there are solid camera's with tilty or even touchscreens.

look at the NX1 a77 mk2 and panasonic GH4
Not having any of those means points get taken off. is it that hard?!

The 7d was class leading at the time.
The 7d mk2 might be improved but nowhere near how much the competition has improved in those 5 years.

just take a look at the lab video quality tab
It get's smoked by a pocketable compact(rx100mk3) which costs less then the WiFi module of the 7d mk2.

Something that small camera has built-in as well. looking at the final product they could have given it a even lower score.

Naveed Akhtar: There are shortcomings of every system ..

I love Pany for their very easy to handle and light/compact bodies and excellent lenses paired with or labelled as Leica. But I sometime wish if I could have the 5x IBIS as Oly got. Then in Oly I wish if it supports videos as good as Pany.

Nikon fullframe, I would have switched to it 4 years ago for its IQ, DR and lens lineup but I wish if they could have Live view implementation like m43 (yes four times smaller sensor) or this dual-pixel tech of Canon.. or something better.

Fuji are excellent in everything, but lacks videos and I still prefer even 4/3 base ISO IQ. High ISO is no doubt excellent but I shot mostly at ISO 1600 or less.

Sony FF Alpha 7 line is fantastic but I am still not very convinced with the lens line-up.

more or less frustrated with what Canon can get away with
The C100 mk2 for instance is a 5.5k cinema camera with a worse codec and resolution then a modern $400,- action cam

Then the 7d mk2 which is overpriced by a factor of 1.5x
And the 5d mk3 which is still going for close to full price when it's seriously dated.

Sessility: +1 for the Fujifilm X-M1 - yes, it's a cheap body (although build quality is not poor, just hasn't got that solid feel to it that more expensive cameras have), _but_ the IQ is excellent, esp. for the $. - the best thing in the context of "entry-level" is that the IQ is excellent for JPGs straight out of the camera.
No fiddling with RAW, ideal for entry level, and you can also shoot RAW+JPG and redevelop images in the camera with next to no effort (e.g. push/pull, WB), again, great for entry level!

And if you get bitten by the bug, you can work your way through the ever-growing set of top lenses to choose from - out of the contenders really only m4/3 can compete there.

True i never said that the fuji was a bad camera.
Just that there are no affordable lens options.

Good lenses don't have to cost a 600 and above.
Sigma 19-30-60mm are all good. The sony 35 and 50mm as well.
The 16-50 well i have said enough crap about that piece of junk.

The problem with fujifilm for entry level users IS lenses.
They only have 2 lenses aimed at this group
The 16-50 and 55-230mm.
They have great lenses but they will cost you. Sony has the cheap sigma options and cheaper primes. But they lack the solid enthusiast line-up.

Absolutely.
Put together to quickly without research.
Missing the system that started it all is quiet the farce.
