(unknown member): They all look soft and whats with all the CA coming through the tree branches? :(

How many blocked Canon fanboys do I count on this thread already? lol. They just can't help themselves, it's sad and very, very pathetic. When will DPReview deal with these individuals?

FBoneOne: I hate to admit it but this kind of lens on a D800e is what could really make me leave Canon after 28 years.
Then I remember my son starts college in a few months and I decide t be reasonable :-)

If you stay with Canon I guarantee you won't be able to afford to send him to College........

ijustloveshooting: 175 replies in a few hours? I think this tells something about G15, right? :)

Yep, the latest scandalous waste of money out of Canon. Old tech, reset price. Yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn. 174 other people spotted that too by the looks of it.

showmetheprime: Dear oh dear. Well we can see why you won't be buying it for its high ISO performance. Total lack of detail anywhere, Canon's trademark in camera mushy noise reduction strikes again. And of course we know the sensor's already a fail because Canon will not trump the performance of any camera higher in the pricing tree under any circumstances. With a feature set that most low grade point and shoots can match the question is why would anyone buy this at all? Is this the beginning of the end of Canon? Or are we already well along that road?

Ah yes, it doesn't matter that a full frame camera produces utter garbage where IQ is concerned because all anyone wants to do is post an 800 pixel image to Facebook with their £1800 camera. Don't make me laugh.

What on earth are you on about? The 1DX absolutely smokes the soccer mom's favourite 5DIII, it's not even in the same ball park. So if the 6D is not a "JPEG camera" then Canon have been wasting all of their effort for years, because where Canon's RAW performance is concerned the sensor is a joke. That seems to make the 5DIII a fail too then by that standard. I guess you're right.

Couscousdelight: That "oil paint" effect on a 200iso shot is weird :

Why Canon's jpg engine have to smooth a 200iso image ?

Wow, even DPR agree that the usual overly aggressive noise reduction and smudged detail is the same as the 5DIII. Maybe you should think about that outrageous score you gave that camera against the D800 again. Canon's JPEG engine is a joke - this is a RAW only camera once again. Oh wait, banding prevents any use of the RAW files, so I guess Canon are once again back to the drawing board...
