mpgxsvcd: Wow that looks like a stunner. However, I can't help but think that a Panasonic GH4 in capable hands with the right lenses could probably come close to matching it.

$28,000 to spend on lenses goes a really long way towards making the playing field even for the GH4.

@Archiver...Depends on which Subaru model you're comparing to. You'll get a lot of stick from Subaru fans :-)))

On CP+ 2015: Canon shows off prototype 120MP CMOS sensor article (255 comments in total)

Another exercise by Dpreview to get more clicks so they can get more advertisers in. Unfortunately that's the internet publishing for you. Ooops I've just done it too. :-)

snarff: I know this is a 'prototype', but it hasn't got a built-in viewfinder, so all this talk about hoping it has an evf is pointless. It's just not going to happen in this camera!

I really can't see Canon releasing a prototype that clearly omits a viewfinder where they intend the final release to have one. It wouldn't make marketing sense as people who were holding on for a g3x with evf will now look elsewhere.

Of course I might be wrong, and that pop-up bit that we all think is a flash is really a 4k evf and the flash is actually hiding under the hotshoe!

Well done!! you've argued against my vies by spotting a spelling mistake. Need I say more?

Your welcome G-D. My words were for the whiners but you felt compelled for a reply.

Whiners never read nor understand. The compact camera market has been sharply shrinking because of phonecameras. G3X kinda cameras from any brand is largely for the purpose of holding customers in the same brand. Has anybody heard people whining because their phonecameras don't have viewfinders? If you are able to read reports you'll realise Canon and Nikon still hold 80% share of the ILC market. There is no clear/big enough indication from sales for big manufacturers to take radical steps in one way or another. Whining costs nothing so you may carry on.

marc petzold: And another Nail to Canons coffin: A firm which does make a 24 to 600 (read it yesterday off the web before dpr here btw) can't be threat serious - who in hell would someone need such a nasty, crappy soup zoom mounted on a 1 inch sensor? well, anyway, as we know from the G7X, Canon may do inferior 50.6 MP sensors, and even pointless 120 MP sensor with insanely small pixels,, but they can't even do a decent 20 MP 1 inch type, so it's being bought off Sony.

The optics would be far worse than the FZ-1000, because of the insane focal length. A 24-600 is way harder to design optically without runaways at any focal length than a 25-400 into the FZ-1000....good luck selling this toy to the people, Canon. And then comes the parade part: still missing an decent EVF, so in other words: more worse then the G7X, but at least with more zoom! There's not the slightest reason for developing Toys like that....and the Brand still don't get it, the Designers must be on crack or something... o.O

Any nail will be in "Canon haters/killers'" coffin.

bdbender4: I have read through much of this thread, and there is a lot of discussion of EOS-M as a system.

IMHO all photo systems are in the middle of another phase of evolution that is getting no attention in this thread. As processors are becoming more powerful, competitive cameras of any size or kind need to have GPS, wi-fi, direct access to the huge fast clouds that are coming, in-camera RAW conversion, and JPEGs that are good enough so you don't have to bother with RAW most of the time anyway. The era of post-processing RAW files in a large, separate computer using clunky software will be seen in retrospect as the clumsy, time consuming mess that it now is. Phones ate compact cameras because of these considerations, not because of viewfinders or lens systems. Thom Hogan beats this drum, and hats off to him for it.

When Sports Illustrated laid off its pro photographers it had to do with evolving business models, not whether the lenses they were using were white or black.

I might also add that it's not only about the sensor quality.The equally important parts are; DOF control, lens quality and the lens perspective. if the quality will improve for sensors, it will improve for all sizes and shapes. By the way, IMHO, we should call it "pixel quality".

And may I ask if Sports Illustrated doesn't issue photographs anymore or do they hire people with phone cameras? Perhaps they use candid shots of women in bikini downloaded from one of the clouds. Even the comissioned photographer needs combination of cameras and lenses. Somehow I think that phonecameras and their limited applictions will kill DSLR/ILC prediction by selfabsorbed technology junkies is a wishful thinking. They should give themselves a break from their self rightious geeky world and look at what is happening around them.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2983 comments in total)

I'm not a specialist, nobody is specialist, I'm not even a photographer but this camera is a specialist one. It doesn't even have touch-sensitive oled screens. Therefore a bad camera. I hate Canon because they don't recognize me as center of the universe.

Howard: I bet Sony and Nikon breathed a sigh of relief.

Same DR as the 5DIII, seriously? So it's an "improvement" in quantity not quality of pixels.

I will take a more serious look at Sony's next offering.

@Howard... Rejecting Canon's professional offerings are we to assume that you are a pro? I wish you good luck with your zillion pixel, zillon DR Sony camera until you've found decent pro lenses for it. Somehow I don't think you are a pro though.

Canon will not deliver DR for you. But will deliver pixels for whom want and need them. Comparing DR performance some Canon cameras are slightly behind the competition but with advantages in other areas. Since no manufacturer has the perfect overall system in their possession it will be down to personal needs and preferences. The universe doesn't evolve around one persons needs.

itsmeavi: Canon thinks if Nikon can do it we can do it bigger and better. In my personal opinion its more like american muscle cars with really BIG gas gulping engines which sounds good and owner feels pride to own however not fast/efficient like fine tuned purpose built sports cars.

It feels like big two want to make good profits not good cameras while sony/olympus want to capture market share so they are working harder to make better cameras.

I am bit disappointed with this announcement and will definitely eagerly wait for 5dm4. Hopefully that will be properly thought out product.

Isn't Dpreview for fanboys to show off their latest mirrorless, 30million pixel gear only for looking at them on computer screens? Meanwhile a lot of pixels make sense only if you are using them. As an enthusiast who takes photos for being creative, I would happily live with a 10-12mpix sensor which gives much better DR, resolution, file size combination. If I needed reasonably large size prints I would still get it with 12mpix. Horses for courses.

The Oscar goes to the person who will ditch his/her 5DmkIII for Canon not putting an evf on 5Ds. I've got so much money that I amuse myself buying equipment according to what Dpreview fanboys write here and I am not even a photographer.

It's kind of sad to see my comment has achieved it's purpose of exposing disturbed souls. I didn't expect to see as many as 18 of them. People who are almost fanatical about the gear and without sense of irony,
humour involved in photography? Nah! I don't think so.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Get used with it. My brand new 50K EUR car "lost" its DSG (hi tech automatic gearbox) after just...409 Km!!! The representative office service was unable to determine the issue, so they asked the factory, and the factory sent a new DSG in a box. I was informed afterwards that an entire batch of those DSGs had various issues, and that many cars were "recalled". One important point: this DSG stuff can be considered mature tech by now. But, if you have technology, you will always have issues. Minor or major.

@Zerg2905...The brand you (don't) mention is one of the most overrated brands. It's almost as if the entire motoring media is in conspiracy to pamper few brands. Don't buy anything less than 5 series from that brand. One can be forgiven for having a "soft spot" for a certain camera brand. But with cars we depend on them to safely takes us from A-B. Yet, time after time media favoured brands fail to satisfy their owners. There are many manufactured myths about car makers both to their unfair advantage or to disadvantage some.
