Photoman: What's the point of making a better quality format, when customers can't tell a good photo from a crap photo. "My iPhone can do the product shot!"...pffft

@Stealthy Ninja Back in my day it was all colour...and quality. I see what photographers get printed and would reject about 25-35% of the prints, if I paid for them.

I just saying from a funny point of view, the clients have no idea what a good photo is. Clients are so dumb, because the photo industry can't or won't educate their clients, why you pay for professional photographer. back in my day, you spent at least half a year just learning colour theory alone and don't get me started on how colour blind clients are and back yard photographers.

Could Google Street View take a better photo?

AngryCorgi: As usual, Canon puts out another camera that get's spanked by a 4-year-old Nikon in the IQ department. When will they think about either (a) purchasing Sony's sensors or (b) partnering with Sony in some way to improve their sensors to be competitive with what Sony has been producing for more than half a decade??

Ouch to Canon users!

boarderphreak: Leica has issued a formal response!

I doubt Canon or Nikon would be so forgiving, but the law or lawsuits would make them do it. Remember when Sony made a bad batch of CCD's in 2002/2003.

Cheaper to buy a new or second hand Sony A7 camera to use your Leica lenses, as the M9's are going to lose value in the second hand market now.

I wonder if Sony can "Borrow" this tech from Olympus and put it in the new rumoured A9 camera...

JDThomas: Just curious as to why DPReview is posting re-hashed content from RUMORS sites? Seriously guys, you are supposed to be the paragon of photography websites and you using content from websites that are the equivalent of The National Enquirer.

@JDThomas DP staff must hate posting things like this, as things can change and Olympus might go broke....again!

How does the Canon 7DMKII compare in video or does Canon need to go back to the drawing board.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)
In reply to:

Silat Shooter: I have to say after handling one of these 7D Mark II, it's a nice camera to work with. The points go pretty far out to the edges of the frame too, so very handy. Felt extremely responsive.

I've watched all the videos and read many of the reviews on the this camera. All are pretty consistent. But have to say all my local camera stores are sold-out of the body, and they all say the D750 is not selling for them. The Rental Houses also mentioned that 95% of their rentals are Canon, Nikon only accounts for a very small 5%, maybe 7%.

I have absolutely nothing against Nikon or Sony. I own two Sony cameras, and a Canon system. I recently got a chance to shoot a D810 and that camera ROCKS!! But why is it that Canon has been able to maintain such a dominate position in the market place? I've heard their Professional Services are far better than everyone else. Is that it? I'm curious?!

@xval Clever marketing by DXO, but is it also Canon's older sensors holding them back.

Canon have good marketing as well (well, most of the time). It must be good marketing to promote the 7DII, if it has the same DXO score as the Nikon D300s. How does that happen???

Maybe it might help the "hackers" on the practise range next door to work, as we get at least a dozen golf balls on the roof a week.

Maybe they should spend their money on making a proper mirrorless camera system, instead of the over-priced 1 system. A Panasonic LX100 kills a V3, a RX100M3 kills a V3 and pretty much any other mirrorless kills it.
