mpgxsvcd: What are we all complaining about? Just 6 years ago we had pathetic burst rates, 12 Megapixels was the Max instead of the min available, Video was non existent, Quiet shutters were almost unheard of, Auto Focus was only slightly better than manual focus, and the cameras cost more than they do today.
If you can't take great pictures and videos with the latest cameras then you really can't blame the camera anymore.
I want a pet dinosaur.
abolit: I guess given 90% is kind of typo?
Yes, that and the 15 pages that lead up to it ;)
ttran88: Just a quick observation of some GOLD awarded cameras in 2014:
Sony A7R-- 82%. GOLDFujifilm XT-1 84% GOLDOlympus E-M10 80% GOLDPentax K-3 83% GOLDPanasonic GH4 84% GOLDNikon D750 90% GOLD
Canon where are you???
NWT, score and award should be seen as separate. Score as an objective assessment and award for the way DPR felt about using the camera... Or thats what i understood in earlier made statements on this subject :)
i just miss the old flickr...
sneakyracer: Overall the 7D2 is a superb Camera Body looking for a better sensor. The Image Quality in both Stills and Video is Competent but not class leading. It is a shame because everything else is superb. (could use WiFi though).
"I was told by Canon engineers that the only reason for WiFi being omitted in the 7D Mark II was that it just wasn't technically feasible to get it (or rather fit it) into that body design."
That's Canon, seeing impossible...
whyamihere: I can't wait to see the results of this year's 'Readers Poll of Products They've Never Used But Have Deep-Seated Opinions On'!
No, that's unfair... that doesn't sufficiently encompass everyone on DPR. This is also the 'Readers Poll of Products They Are Temporarily Happy With Until The Next Shiny Thing Comes Along and Buyer's Remorse or Gear Acquisition Syndrome Kicks In'.
Either way, feel free to self-implicate.
It's a nice opportunity to express your feelings when it comes to developments in photographic technologies. Which products are following a route route you like to see being followed? Something like that....
Or at least, that's how i voted.
I'm using a D800 by the way, still no buyers remorse ;)
Samuel Dilworth: I have a feeling the horrible little α6000 is going to take this.
Yup :) Friend of mine bought one, it's quite spectacular...
ProfHankD: Let's see... pick a body using a Sony sensor. I don't necessarily agree on the details, but that sounds right to me. Canon really needs to get it's act together.
But this is a camera quality roundup. And Canon's competitors appear to use sensors which make those amazing photo's amazinger :)
These video's are great, thanks guys!
Tripodasaurus: Interesting to see some DPREVIEW readers getting so very excited about which cameras have been incorrectly categorised or excluded, or are best etc. If they already know so much about the cameras why are they even reading a comparison article of cameras they already know about?!! Hmm!
I think people are exited because the choices made in these round-ups give the impression that marketing is driving the way decisions are made at dpr.
If there's one enthusiast camera out there i'd say it's the Sony A6000... Ignoring spec / class / category "rules" that is.
Another one? really?
Congrats with this camera Sony :)
sebastian huvenaars: This is the era of electronics. Sensors, responsive menus, responsive autofocus, high quality evf's... Leica is trying to compete in a game that has changed to much.
Good optics will always be good optics, and boy has Leica made some really nice optics... This leaves the question, why don't they focus on the game in which they're able to hit an occasional home-run? Becoma a third party lens manufacturer... Why not? I pretty sure there's a market for that with the growing number of system camera users...
says the armchair marketing specialist ;)

I like this!
The satire of doing this to a camera who's most defining specification are its cosmetics is well... pretty funny :)
(funny and retarded)
Darker then a black steer's tookus on a moonless prairie night...
It's impossible to look at the bottom of that red cube :S
EricoftheNorth: Totally a new marketing campaign. Move along.
