On Canon EOS 7D Mark II beta image samples article (36 comments in total)

Boy...Are these photos sharp for an APSC Camera...I have owned and used a 7D for five years and I have shot wide aperture lenses in the sunlight...I must admit Mark II is way sharper than the old version....Can't understand how so many people nag here for the lack of a larger MP sensor when the photos this camera delivers are every bit as sharp as a semi-pro full frame...Besides if these photos were really shot on an 18-135 EFs which is only average in terms of IQ, the quality this camera can deliver with a 24-70 f2.8 II will be unmatched...

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2160 comments in total)

How funny some are whining about the sensor and the extra 4 & 8 megapixels that Nikon and Sony cams would deliver, forgetting what made Nikon cameras great when they were way behind in the megapixel race several years ago was absolutely great autofocus and ergonomics. 20 mp is twice more than what anyone would need, unless your photos are so crappy and out-of-focus that you need the extra pixels to be able to downsize them and make them look sharp...

I have owned and used a 7D since its introduction, I must say I find Mark II a great upgrade that will definitely replace my current camera....

However good the specs may sound, it's years behind Canon and Nikon in ergonomics and hence never used by pros or semi pros...

I'm sorry, is it me or is this kind of technology going in the wrong direction...but when there are tens of great mirrorless and compact cameras out there, who would probably pay for this thing that looks and feels neither like a camera nor like a cellphone... and is way too bulky and fragile to go into your pocket.... I think Sony has to take such paths to stay in business...

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (368 comments in total)

It was about time...
When CANON introduced 24-70 F2.8 II it overwhelmingly beat the then Nikon King 24-70 f2.8. When it introduced 70-200 f2.8 II it again beat the Nikon 70-200 II. I seriously hope this 16-35 f4 can beat the unbeatable Nikon 16-35 f4 which is the sharpest ultra wide lens I have ever laid my hands on. Canon users deserve an ultrawide lens of that quality...

"Produces lovely looking images".... Oh my... 'Lovely' What is this? A new professional term for high quality pics? It's almost as expensive as a 6D!

On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (259 comments in total)

Can't believe there is so much negativity already! No one actually knows what the camera is!!! Let's not forget Canon still holds the record when it comes to best-selling cameras, and let's not forget Canon was the first to introduce DSLRs, was the first to introduce Video in DSLRs like 5dMII which revolutionized the DSLR market and took digital photography to another level...

Well I suppose Canon know what they're doing. If you don't like or need the new camera that Canon announces you'd better stick to what you already own...

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

I am not a Nikon user, but it appears as if Nikon is cheating on its consumers. I actually don't believe the oil problem in D600 is that big a deal. Similar problems have occured before and what normally happens is the manufacturer asks consumers to return the products to solve the issue. The curious thing is Nikon's approach to the problem which is absolutely unprofessional. The question is why would Nikon solve the problem in the camera and give it a new name D610! which is totally out of place in Nikon camera naming. Had Nikon actually planned and designed D610 before the problem with D600 was discovered? I believe this is totally unprofessional of Nikon. I was like 'Oh my ..' every time Nikon announced a new camera, knew it would be big. But now, I'm just 'hmmm... a half-frame per second faster camera...

On Roger Cicala compares three 24-70mm F2.8 lenses article (142 comments in total)

Well...I read the article...aren't they supposed to test the lenses with one single camera...Obviously the higher resolution of the d800 would result in higher quality and sharper images from any lens, not just 24-70.

I rented canon 24-70 II for a month or so and tried it on my 7D, while a friend had Nikon 24-70 on his d300. Comparing the images we took under the same lighting in the same conditions, the canons were way sharper than those from Nikon. Of course nikon 24 70 is better and sharper than Canon 24 70 Mark I. But the MKII is a differrent world. You can check out the comparison reviews in other websites. For one: http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/lenses/24-70mm-ii.htm

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM preview article (149 comments in total)

Why is there so much negativity already...just because you think YOU wouldn't need the lens, you jump to the hasty conclusion that 'Canon has lost it'!? If you feel this Canon won't go into your gear that doesn't mean its production is pointless!!!

I beg to differ. I think Canon exactly knows what they're doing and they have certain customers for everything they plan and produce. As for the new 24-70 lens, I think we need to wait to see how it performs in real life...If it lives up to what they say it will be like, improved IS (hybrid) 0.7 macro capability, then it would make taking a macro lens with your midrange zoom totally redundant...not to mention if it shares the same optics of 24-70 II which by far is the highest quality mid-range zoom in the world, it would be totally worth it...

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)

can't believe there is so much negativity about this Canon already. It seems you have all forgotten how the old 5d mii revolutionized the market with an only 9-point AF system and until the introduction of nikon d800 according to dpreview it stood as the highest image quality dslr in the market.

What many amateurs seem to ignore is that huge differences exist between a camera's specs on paper and how it handles in real life. When d800 and 5dmiii were out in the market, i shot both for around a month and i had many more keepers from my 5dmiii in terms of color rendition, contrast, and focus accuracy. I found miii much more fun to shoot with and much more photographer friendly. d800's menu is way to complicated to handle.

I suppose a multi-billion dollar company like Canon knows what it's doing. Let's wait till 6d is in the market then we can actually compare the cameras better.

On Just Posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review article (706 comments in total)
In reply to:

HansW 007: I find it silly to give such a complex instrument an overall score - and even sillier to put any importance on that figure.

For example, I do a lot of photography in concerts. For me the reduced shutter noise of the 5D Mk III is most important, wheras I don't need more than 3 frames/sec. A sports photographer won't care about the noise, but will want 10 frames/sec.

I would also challenge the claims of many commentators here that dpreview favoured the Canon. Virtually all other independent tests done on comparing those two cameras give Canon a big advantage in the high ISO range department. And that's also my finding after comparing both cameras myself.
Needless to say, you only shoot Raw with a machine like that.

I totally agree with you saying it's rather difficult to put a score on a camera. However, I should say I don't own any of them, but I've tested both. To me 5d III feels much better in the field than d800 which is the queen in the labs...
