B1ackhat: Yes, it has some shortcomings, but every camera does. For the first time in a long time, I am genuinely excited about a Canon product.
But the excitement is towards a product that's following competitor's foot step.
There's no ecosystem to tie you down, no lens to share, no flash to mount. In the PNS with big sensors category, I feel there's no difference between brands. The IQ will speak for itself.
Got to love how aggressive Sony is with innovation and R&D.
All the answers sounds artificially politically correct to me.
If the 7DII's sensor is the "best" sensor that they ever made. Then you're in real serious trouble. I mean it's not a bad sensor but if that's the true maximum result Canon can deliver., they're in serious serious trouble.
Looking at how technology trickle down the line. Is it safe to say that 5DIV will be yet another camera with higher FPS, slightly higher megapixels, some DPAF
and.............. no significant changes to sensor and stills IQ?
I wonder how much of this technological improvement will translate to better stills??
Canon seems to have their hands full on video and their cine-line recently...
will never get pass the 2.7 crop factor and the relatively small sensor size. the smaller sensor size did not yield significant space saving or smaller form factor so I'm sorry, any improvements won't do at all because i can't get pass the sensor size
in other news. Sony's thinking of creating a Full Frame Point and Shoot camera. eventually, full format digital backs will eventually be the gold standard, as it gets cheaper to make sensors with the improvement of technology
dpreview seems to be on a decline these days.
first critiques were aplenty for iPhone reviews, followed by the integration of dxO's very debatable database into their lens review, and now...
using photo prints in a camera test scene.
I find all these critiques/feedback as valid. I hope dpreview can take all these comments positively and do consider modifying a few decisions.
#1Photos prints fade overtime#2camera used to capture the photo in the prints has its own version and method of rendering color, does not give accurate color impression to viewers#3 print quality might affect camera test, a blurred line can be both be due to bad print quality or the camera used to take the test scene itself
please use lesser photo prints
just hope photozone don't follow suite on this one
the number of trusted and reliable lens/camera review sites are dwindling.
And just to quote:
"You need to grow a pair...of eyes if you think the D600 sensor is better than the 80 megapixel Phase One IQ180, but DXO says the D600 ranks higher so it must be true ;-)"
exactly roustabout66 !!!
there's a group of people who claims that dxo labs as bias. I'm not sure what this partnership will bring.
Much smaller sensor size yet similar form factor. Small camera that packs no punch. Period.
Renzokuken: To all the naysayers, let's all wait for sample shots before concluding anything.
looks like jpegs to me, what i mean was raw and real world shots by 3rd Parties , preferbly websites like dpreview and photozone.de

Windows Phone. Next.
Best Phone camera award still goes to IPhone, Top of the line Sony Ericsson Phones and certain Samsung models.
smaller sensor with crop factor of 2.7 YET not much smaller than a EP3 (form factor)
ok now what?
