legokangpalla: Not sure why people are mentioning "A7R2 is cheaper", They are both 3000$+ range.

3.5k and 8k USD are all above 3k - does this make no difference given your logic?

Yanko Kitanov: It's a pity they couldn't reach a bit closer to the 645z. Pentax is still in another league...

I am doing college athletics for demo to beginners with a manual, film, no VF, no EV meter, no AF, no Auto aperture Leica IIIc from 1947. This is to show how our grandfathers did sports reportage with great success.

I am ready to discuss this with those who believe they need all the gear in the world for action/sports.

On Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison article (518 comments in total)

The performance is really not up to the price. I was expecting much more. Not that it is totally out of Pentax's league, but it is also inferior to the D810 which has lower resolution but delivers better results in terms of noise, dynamic range, tonal gradations and subjectively always looks much sharper even at unprocessed RAW level. A great cam for Canon but not a such a great cam for it's price range in the market.

Yanko Kitanov: Hi, Barnaby!

Can you elaborate a bit more on this: "...and we suspect that shooting the EOS 5DS R especially will require a medium-format approach to get the most out of the theoretical resolution of the sensor."?

I am not disagreeing - I'm just interested to understand better what exact techniques you would label as MF and consider when shooting the 5DS R. Such info is always useful.

Thanks and cheers!

Base ISO and a tripod is one - yes, thanks!

In reply to:

Jarekn: And which of the Canon lenses are capable of resolving such high resolution? Simple, NONE.

I'd say all L series and many other primes and zooms actually.SO quite the opposite imo.

In reply to:

stevens37y: So Leica has sent the battery already.

LMAO

It's an early alpha version of the battery - should be kept in the fridge at night. For better results you can upgrade to a battery from the reputable Acme power.

In reply to:

Yanko Kitanov: 1. Poor jpg color rendition
2. Poor lens performance, especially in the corners...btw it has very familiar distortion pattern...:)
3. Color banding at ISO 3200

A) I am talking about the DPR samples converted in ACR from RAW.
B) I am talking about color banding which is different from chroma noise which you call blotching. Every sensor has chroma noise at ISO 3200 if you use no chroma NR. Mind that ACR always uses a certain degree of it at high ISO, but the better converters can show how much noise is there. Chroma noise is not usually a problem as its reduction is almost non destructive to the colors and tones in the shot.

Cheers!

The color banding is not due to the jpg engine(which is obvious in ACR converted images at ISO3200) It is due to the sensor performance and more precisely to the sensor setup that Leica made since the same sensor showed no banding in other cameras.

The kit lens is sold at a high price. Given its performance it seems quite overpriced for such a low quality product, I hope other lenses will be better.

The battery will come later as it is in the process of gold plating - this should add an exceptional value to the IQ.

They licensed a Sony NEX for times the price - they could at least license the battery too LMAO

The brushed aluminium body will cover with scratches in a week - "good design" :-))))

Yanko Kitanov: Leica - do you believe your customers are idiots to whom you may lie regarding "optical corrections" while they are buying a Sony NEX cam with Sony NEX glass for 10x the price?? A pathetic way to show that you are going down.

@doug Now I get it- you are one of those buying the brand and not the product, this explains all. Btw I own several Leica cams and a collection of Leica lenses and accessories from 1943 to present.Regarding the STFU you should find some inner strength to change your attitude as it is quite destructive for you the way you keep it, not to mention the younger public reading here. Also aggression gets you nowhere and used in person it could lead to...well you should be glad it is not in person ))) Good night mate.

@smorti I base my point on the fact that the sensor and the lens are modded Sony products and not the design. You'll see that in tech reviews later.
You said I insulted someone? No, I just pointed out simple facts based on a post - they also apply to you I guess ;) And you can try to answer fluently in my native language or any of the languages that I speak fluently ;)

@Doug - Please use more civilized language if your IQ allows you to do so. And don't STFU users that may not care how they get a result that is already there with a 10x less expensive cams but do care why they should overpay. Now you can go to your room and think about the language you use in forums where kids are readers and the psychological reasons that make you do that ;) haha

Yanko Kitanov: Good old NEX C3 for 10X the actual price...good engineering Leica....

It's all about being stupid enough to overpay 10x the price of an already dated sensor... One can take poor pictures with any camera and one can use actual Leica glass on E mount.

I am selling my good old NEX C3 to get a new C3 for 10X the actual price...
HAHAHAHAHAHA

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (647 comments in total)
In reply to:

philinnz: this is the first sentence in the conclusion "The X-T1 is Fujifilm's most ambitious camera to date, and we'd have to say, probably its best"

Has DPR forgotten about the Fuji S5 Pro? That was Fuji's best camera

And it uses far better lenses :)
