$30K?????
Only Canon can legally scam people out of money like that.

The skin tones are awful, is it the camera or the lens?

Verdict, if you own D810 stick with D810, 5DSr will not make your life better.
Congrats to Canon users for getting a camera they needed.

Tower: Why people to blame the software. LR never as good as native camera software. I means LR could not be better then the Phocus or DPP.

LR is better in many respects including mass-post processing and cataloging. It does a lot of things well besides RAW processing.

Mark Alan Thomas: At last, subscribers and nervous persons can remove every trace of reality from their photos. If that’s not worth the price of extortion, I don’t know what is.

The practical application for de-haze would be done to a photo that was shot through an airplane window where glass reflection in the form of hazing is sort of apparent. De-haze works like the Black lever in the Basics panel (sort of).

NJOceanView: I may be in the minority, but for the cost of one month's smart phone bill, I get CC for an entire year, and I use it daily. I'm excited to read of new surprise improvements which for me are very useful: 1) I use content aware a lot and if it's faster that's great; 2) I often have to blur (e.g., remove items from a wall and then find the resultant distribution of values on the new "blank" wall is just not even enough) and then add my best-guess level of grain on top of that to ensure it doesn't look out of place; and 3) I'll probably use the de-haze feature only a handful of times a year, but I expect it will be great when I do need it. These are all tweaks to my work which purposely retains a very natural and unprocessed look.

So I'm downloading it; I'm excited to check it out; and I'm very happy Adobe keeps throwing these surprise improvements at us. P.S. For those who consider CC too expensive, check out OnOne's very cost-effective, pay-once, and similar-to-PS product.

I'm ticked off right now, because one of the plugins I use with Adobe just got obsolete by this new version, and I have to re-purchase an upgraded plugin to make it work with the latest version. Plus, I don't know why Adobe does this, but with every major upgrade I have to manually reinstall all my plugins and pray that they will work on the latest version.

Jylppy: I hate the thought that my photos are managed & edited with a software by greedy corporation like Adobe that I do not trust. There are companies that have earned their trust, but Adobe is not one of those.

@Barry Pearson
I'm happy with CC, but because my job pays for it. Now, if I had to pay for it myself, I'd be looking really hard at alternatives.

j900: Dehaze in CC but not in standalone lightroom, one month after release. Am I the only one feeling screwed? Adobe's getting nasty and they will lose the business of some.

There is a new software one should look into, called Photo Affinity. Does pretty much everything that lightroom and photoshop does for photos.

Can this thing dehaze the thick layer of foundation that some women put on their face before a photoshoot?

ARB1: So, are Nikon and Canon just sitting on their hands, especially Nikon geeezzz. I would by a Nikon like this in a second since I've been a loyal Nikon guy for decades, but damn, how long should one wait?

Um, it may be true that Canon has been sitting, or more like sleeping, but Nikon has released plenty of products for the last 3 years.

5Dsr is looking old...very old...like 5 years old, and it hasn't been shipped yet.

bgbs: This announcement is so bad for Canon. As for Nikon, this announcement provides a good insight as to whats cooking in terms of sensor technology.

From what I gather the D4s and D800 sensors were designed by Nikon but manufactured by Sony. Nikon might be designing its sensor by utilzing some of Sony's patented tech, I dont know, but Nikon is no slouch when it comes to actually designing their sensors. Whatever Niikon does, it certainly knows how to squeeze more data from Sony sensors than Sony itself can.

In reply to:

jonby: Yes the high ISO is significantly better than I was expecting. Dynamic range still appears to be lower than the 645Z and D810 - we'll get a better idea when DPR do their DR and ISO equivalence tests. But nevertheless, this is pretty impressive - a great camera for those wanting more detail who already have good Canon glass.

The high ISO low light performance needs to be tested in low light not standard light. All cameras perform great in a very lit environment up to ISO 6400

the image is bit over-processed for my tastes. I see too much over-processing going on these days with landscape shots.

I love what these third party manufacturers are doing, that means I no longer need to choose my camera based on what kind of lenses a camera manufacturer produces.
