When I'm selling anything on eBay in the future I'll make sure to send info to DPR.

On article DxOMark confirms Canon EOS 1D X II sensor advances (197 comments in total)

So, it's not a bad camera after all? I was worried to buy it for my daughter because she allways take those images of her dog with contrasty midday sun and thus needs lots of DR.

My 10 years old SLR looks fine as well.

cdembrey: A FILM Pen F had a central viewfinder. It didn't have fake Leica rangefinder styling. If this camera was a true Digital Pen F I'd be interested. But I'm not a poser, so I'li continue to use my 1935 Leica llla Full-Frame-Film camera when I feel the need to look like an Angry Artist 8-)

...I'm not a poser...

Cameracist: Hardware accerleration stopped working after the update. My images are all over the place when the Open CL is on:-(((

I felt lucky it worked. Well, until now:-D

Yes, it´s useless and overpriced. Just like a brilliant ring or a luxurious car ;-)

DigiMatt: Still not a real 645 format camera. The 645 image size is 56 × 42mm, so 44x33mm is a crop camera. It is already a niche product, a tool aimed at those who earn a living with images, so why not charge $20,000 and have the full 645 format? Why design a new system with new lenses and still have the crop... Is it impossible to build a CMOS sensor that large? I hope someday soon we will finally see true 56x42 and 56x67 sensors. I drool as I imagine the image quality of a 56x67mm Exmor sensor with 200 megapixels and a Zeiss OTUS lens.

There were historicall other - smaller - roll film sizes than 120 film. By definition they were MF as well, as is this 44x33 sensor. Causa finita:)

Working photographers. If you want to make living as a taxi driver, buy a comfortable car. If you want to work as a photographer, buy a comfortable camera. For about the same price;)

Such sensor already exists. But both price and size would be prohibitive.

Wonderful! Only the 11 points AF module is dated. But I understand there had to be *something* in favor of K-3 II...

If you are an S user, this is probably a spare change. Makes the SL great second body.

jonny1976: seems to me that vr in lens affect booked because of the elements and complexity of design...i use pentax and the fact that the IS is in the body, the lens can be constructed simply and with better booked also.

My uber Allies lens kicks your Axis lens' ass any time!

Cameracist: 16MP??? That's more than the expensive a7S II !!! Why pay more? What is Sony thinking!

How do you mount your 10MP DSLR (pathetic low resolution!) on a selfie stick? Ha!
