In reply to:

Gothmoth: imo canon has by far the better lineup in 2012.

with the coming 4K video DSLR, the high megapixel 5D X(?) and the C300 that can take EF lenses the canon system is way ahead of nikon when it comes to video.

i rather buy into EF lenses i can use on a C300 in the future (when i upgrade) then a D800... even when it has uncompressed video.

the high iso example from the 5D MK3 look impressive.
6 FPS are more worth to me then 14mp more.

the build quality is impressiv too, i heard that from many sources.
much better then the already good 5D MK2.

now im only curious how good the new AF system is.
i know it will be great but how great, that is the question.

An extra 2fps is worth more than an extra 14mp? What do you shoot? lol

In reply to:

robogobo: Oh, and I thought Nikon wasn't interested in the "megapixel race". Eh?

Honestly, they're interested in whatever Sony has to offer. Nikon is smart. Now that there's enough processing power to deal with 36mp, they release the D800. If they had a 36mp camera 3 years ago, it would have horrible noise and very slow performance.

There are rumors that the D3200 will have 24.2mp, which isn't surprising because Sony uses the 24mp sensor for the NEX-7 and A77.

sobos_ru: I'd love to have this Justin's e-mail to tell him my total personal contempt.

This sort of behaviour should be condemned by the community.

What? There's no copying here. These are two different images. Say you took a picture of a yellow jacket on a rose and then isolated the color of yellow jacket. The two subjects are "unique," so if someone does the same thing, they're infringing on copyrights? No way.

This judge is an idiot. These two pictures aren't even CLOSE to being the same. What "lighting" is the judge talking about? This is a "Photoshopped" picture, the technique of which is commonly used. It's perfectly logical to isolate the red bus, which is probably different in color than the surroundings. I am outraged that this is considered "copying."

In reply to:

kwojdyna: Leica is full-frame, what means that they put twice bigger sensor in same-size body compared to Fuji. Then compare images from full-frame D700 and twice smaller D7000 in lower lights and see what this "small difference" means in reality...

The M9's ISO performance is horrible because it's CCD.

Seriously? Only one new f1.8 shot?

In reply to:

Mattoid: Not being able to use auto focus and manual exposure in video at the same time pretty much negates any advantage over canon in terms of video production.

Because the movie-mode AF on Nikon and Canon is basically worthless.

Torsten Koetting: just look at the samples at imaging-resource while waiting for dpreview to fix the gallery :)

Actually, you should compare the sky to the Nikon D3x.

It has less blotching, but you can see a similar "defect."
