On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2291 comments in total)

7DII -sport & wildlife (cheap compare to 1Ds and D4s)
5Ds/R - Studio & Still life (cheap compare to MF)
5DIII - In between
No high contrast (wide DR) landscape camera yet.
For most situations these camera still able to produce good landscape photos.
Get Nikon or Sony if Canon cannot meet your requirement.
I am waiting for used Canon gears.

KW Phua: For me I always check which cameras were used the most to take pictures in Galleries and the Challenges. People who like to take photo use which camera is most important.

Never jude the quality of photography from the gear.

Funny! Apple iPhone and Canon not in the list. According to Fliker iPhone and Canon are the most used cameras.

By the time mirrorless out sell DSLR, maybe still Canikon outsell others.

In reply to:

audiobomber: What is the basis for saying the 7D II outperforms the a6000 and K-3 for noise? DXOMark shows the 7D II with the lowest score of the three for SNR.
a6000: ISO 1347
K-3: ISO 1216
7D II: ISO 1082

http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-EOS-7D-Mark-II-versus-Sony-A6000-versus-Pentax-K-3___977_942_914

I believe my eyes, not the score.

Base on this review, D4s and 1Dx should be the worst camera. No WIFI no GPS, no touchscreen.

Now, camera with good DR, AF, ISO and low cost will win. However, not all cameras have all that. For landscape DR + manual focus will do. 7DII not for them. For action photography, high ISO + AF more important. 7DII more suitable for them. With crop sensor you can save on the lens as well.
Let me know if you can find camera with everything good and cheap. (Please add the lens cost). Too bad, I still need to save up for a few years before I can get that camera. Please let me know when all the sport photographers are using mirrorless. Let me know anyone using it now, I like to learn from him/her.
Get the right camera for your photography and share your shots so let everyone enjoy photography. 7DII not for pix peeping but may get the right shot at the right time with the right skill.

Investing in new Fab for sensor may take a few yrs to break even. Now the camera market is slowing down, so it may take longer to break even. Any company want to invest will need to ensure that they can advance others by 10 yrs or more before the next investment. Hope to see the next big thing from Canon soon.

KW Phua: Canon Jpeg is one of the best. Not over balance quite well between details and NR. Like the ISO12800_030A922b.

Sorry. Typo.
Overall balance quite well between details and NR. I like the ISO12800_030A922b.

40daystogo: Q. "What has changed? Why are you more serious [about mirrorless] now than in previous years?"

Maeda: "We’ve actually been serious about it since the very beginning."

I hope he's around to see Canon and Nikon go through a Blackberry-like slide. After having used Nikon SLR and DSLR for decades, I'm now enjoying my much lighter-weight Sony mirrorless A6000.

I enjoy my iPhone. Even lighter then A6000.
