On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1129 comments in total)
In reply to:

NJOceanView: The incredible D7000 is available for $489.00 at Amazon for those interested. I figure I can sell my 7D2 used (~4,000 actuations) for $1,467.00 and buy three D7000s. But now I see the D7000, too, only got a Silver Award just as the 7D2 did, and more surprisingly received a score of just 80%, even lower than my ever-so-imperfect 7D2. I'm so tied up in knots, I just don't know what to do.

"I just don't know what to do." ..

Just stop buying cameras, go out and take pictures; .. try to set your OWN opinion on your equipment :))

Love Photography 888: This camera makes the D750 look like the bargain of the year.

D750 is a FF, 7D is an APSC !

Joo Prates: I come back to my point about Canon:
THE NUMBERS ARE COLD, BUT SHOW THE FACTS:

Let's go to DPR ratings. In interchangeable Lens Cameras, ordered by rating, in Gold Awards, we find in the 10 first best cameras:

- One Canon Camera (EOS-1D Mark IV- 89% / Feb 2010) ,

- Four Nikon cameras (D3S - 89% / Feb 2010; D610 - 87% / Mar 2014; D600 - 87% / Nov 2012; D7100 85% / Apr 2013)

The new Canon 70D - 83% / Oct 2013 in 13 position Gold Award

The new 7D MarkII - 84% / Dec 2014 Silver Award

So, after 5 years...it's the best Canon achieves with their 7D Mark II? the same sensor...low DR...no Wi-fi? are you joking with us?

For instance in lens...how is it possible that Sigma makes a 50 mm 1,4 Art lens, for 950USD (price droping), and the top Canon L 50mm 1,2 that sells for 1600USD is worse in all levels, compared to the Sigma?

I've been a canonist all my life, but I'm disappointed with Canon Cameras and lenses, and I'm considering making the big move - changing to Nikon.

and, after all, as a "life long" Canon user, what's your OWN experience with the brand then ? ..

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (669 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimmy jang Boo: If the $1200 70D is a cutting edge stalwart, it's a seriously dull cutting edge.

Wouldn't be better to call it what it really is? According to dpr, image quality isn't really any better than the NEX-5N, which also meters and focuses better than the 70D. And in terms of low light and high ISO performance, the 70D lags a good distance behind the 5N. Gold must be pretty cheap to be so freely given away.

" Gold must be pretty cheap to be so freely given away. "
.. so well put !

Admittedly the conclusions of this test, as for the IQ, rise more questions than they offer reliable answers; .. can anyone say me in what respect the IQ of this stuff is any better than (let's say) 40D's one ? Where is the IQ improvement ? Did Cannon have improved the IQ any significantly since 40D in this line up of cam ?

In reply to:

samhain: If I was shopping for an aps-c dslr, I'd choose the k-3 over either Canon or Nikon aps-c offerings.

Now Pentax just needs some fast f1.4 glass.
An f1.2 wouldn't hurt either.

nothing else ?.. :)))))

In reply to:

senn_b: I uploaded 3 photos to the challenge (3d, 12th and 80th) but I didn't vote .. sorry. When I vote, I compare, then I review all challenging photos at least twice and try to vote fairly. Too much photos here. It demands huge amount of patience and concentration, .. and a lot of time to compare and vote. How can one vote 511 challenging photos objectively in a couple of hours ?
Nonetheless, thanks swamynirmal for this challenge .. the quality level seems pretty high. That was a real pleasure.

Regards,

thanks ..
just a question of precision if you don't mind Mr Host: .. is 8775 number of voters (I mean members having voted) or number of votes ?
