I cannot comment on this camera because it doesn't have a DxO point. But, I can brag about all other cameras as long as they have DxO points. I don't even need to take real photos. Just look at DxO web site, and boom! There goes my comment here!That's just me. I know you are not like me.Regards DxOTroll
ogl: Nikon with real 36 MP is far better than 40 MP mode from crop 2.
Well, still, with right lens and shooting technique, you can get close to detail that you can get from D810, which is incredible. And you'll see no moire (which I see from time to time even in my D800).D810 still would give you more detail with the right lens and shooting technique.
Gesture: Why are reviews a section at a time?
Or "people can read those sections way before the reviewer can finish the review so that they won't have to wait for lifetime".

Actually, two similar models is nothing. Look at the fleets of Canon PowerShots that come out each year with the same sensor and basic features. As opposed to Sony, which seems willing to do substantial redesign of camera guts quite often, Canon tends to make new cameras by sticking-together modules most of which have been around for years. Thus, it costs Canon very little to have a multitude of camera versions with a different module choice here or there. That helps get more space on retail shelves... which is something Canon still leads in. ;-)
By substantial redesign, do you mean Sony HX50V and HX60V? Because they are basically the same camera.
mgrum: "Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"
That's pretty much all Canon have done for the past 6 years ;)
Roman, I put "-" between A55 and A77, to separate them.
If only these lower level cameras had AF microadjustment... Pentax K500 has it. Even 60D did not have it (and 50D had had).
Yes, Canon has used the same sensor in 7D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D, 100D and EOSM, but so have the others:
16MP APSC: Nikon D7000, Nikon D5100, Pentax K5, Pentax K5II, Pentax K5IIs, Pentax K-01, Pentax K30, Pentax K500, Pentax K50, Sony NEX5n, Sony NEX3n, Sony NEXF3, Sony NEX5r, Sony NEX5t, Sony NEX6, Sony A35, Sony A55, Ricoh GR, Nikon Coolpix A, Some Leicas etc.. (Missed any?)
24MP APSC: Nikon D3200, Nikon D3300, Nikon D5200, Nikon D5300, Nikon D5500, Sony NEX7, Sony A5100, Sony A6000, Sony A65, Sony A77, Sony A77II, Pentax K3.Some removed AA filter, some added phase-detection pixels, some tweaked it but these are basically the same sensors.
ozturert: They are terrible because DxOMark says so...
Well, sarcasm anyone?
Sony: A35, A55, A57 - A65, A77, A77II, 100s of NEX bodies with the same 16MP APSC.Pentax: K5, K-01, K30, K5-II, K-5IIs (same sensor without AA), K500, K50Nikon: D5200, D5300, D5500, D3200, D3300, D7100Canon: 7D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D, EOSM, 60D.These companies are all the same s..t in different color.
Interestingness: I could really use that 760D to finally 'upgrade' my 50D. Really need something better above ISO 2500 but have been really disappointed with what Canon has done since then. 60D was a downgrade IMHO, 70D has focussing issues, 7Dii is too expensive for what I would need it for.
Am definitely going to take a wait-and-see with the 760D and read some user reviews. This *IS* Canon we're talking about - will they make the viewfinder teeny tiny? Wheel on back be cheap and feel like the S90? Cheap and creaky plastic build? Cripple it/take usable features away to try to steer someone up line? What did they do to protect their lineup from canibilizing their own lineup?
This will be my last kick at the can for Canon. Already sold off the lenses I don't need, the 50D is up for sale and am holding onto the couple of pieces of glass I like and use. If Canon drops the ball on this I'm out forever.
Are there focusing issues with 70D?
They are terrible because DxOMark says so...
birdseed007: The truth is that the Pentax 645Z blows this and every other Canon or Nikon camera into the weeds for image quality and weather sealing which is why DpReview haven't reviewed it and nor have DXO Mark because they don't want to upset Canon and Nikon who pay the bulk of their advertising dollars.
The 645Z isn't for everyone (sports shooters) but it has brought the cost of superior image quality into levels that serious enthusiasts and professionals can realistically afford. With a range of 16 lenses covering extreme wide angle to 400mm telephoto it can do pretty much everything.
Canon is facing an onslaught from powerful new upstarts like Samsung and Sony plus a revitalised Pentax who under Ricoh have a turnover twice the size of Nikon.
Canon sales of DSLRs/ILC down 17%Compact cameras down 32%and those numbers got worse in Q4, the Christmas selling quarter.
Canon have been resting on their laurels for too long, fortunately the competition is acting as a spur to innovation
Canon has excellent Cine lenses, bot Canon and Nikon has very good FF lenses, they produce all kinds of optics including telescopes. I think they'e populate MF lens ecosystem quite fast but MF market is not big enough so I don't think that they will go into this market soon.
Speedex Folder: I have no doubt this will be a mighty fine superzoom, but . . . . . I'll never understand the attraction of shooting at 600mm equivalent using the backside LCD, and I'm really, really disappointed that I have to choose between being able to use any of the terrific EOS hotshoe flashes OR an add-on EVF. Why can't I have both, like a real camera ? ? ?
You probably would not use a flash at 600mm but I agree with lack of EVF problem.
10-30mm looks nice.
Maybe it's me but I see focus errors in portrait photos.
krestenov: Can't get all that moaning - if you like something else, support the manufacturers by giving your money to them. DR will not make your photographs an piece of art, it's up to your talent, eye, taste, experience... It's not Nikon, Canon, Pentax that make your shots great. There is no Holly Grail in photo equipment. Better work on mastering your art - that is what will stay beyond your time and not your tools. Who cares what were van Gogh canvas and brushes???
No no! DxO says otherwise, and I believe them! No need to go out there and take real photos! Sufficient to look at DxO numbers and brag here!And even if I took real photos, I'd always underexpose by 4 stops and then open shadows and stuff in fotoshof. That's what everyone is doing, right?
prossi: I am hearing the sensor is just the ff version of the 7DII apsc. Meaning it is going to be a bigger & badder version whatever you didn't like in the 7DII.
Was actually talking to balico, sorry prossi :)
Provia_fan, show me 200mm or 11mm or f1.2 equivalent Pentax lenses. That's what I mean by "limited" compared to EOS system. I know that Pentax has a wide array of old lenses.An by the way, not all old Pentax manual lenses have sufficient resolving power for the excellent 50MP sensor of 645Z.By the way, even comparing 5Ds R with a medium format camera is good publicity for Canon :) Look at what D800E did, 5Ds will do similarly or better.
Do you take real photos?
645Z is 8300$ body only, and it's medium format, and you don't have as many lens choices, and flash choices and functions are limited, and...

I found many dental caries in the teeth of a hippopotamus.
The bad news is that to remove pimples from the face of the bride's portraites will be even more difficult. Oops (
I did not even bother to look, because it's Canon and DxO says that Canon is bad.
