On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (668 comments in total)

Wow, this is a pretty underwhelming review (and justifiably so).

I don't know who's more bored -- the women in the picture or me.

I will never buy another Motorola phone after having 2 droid phones. I still shudder when I think about them.

How does a tripod without QR plate even work? Do you twist the camera to mount it? That sounds awkward.

Howard: What does this one have that the Sony A6000 doesn't?

I can list quite a few things the A6000 has and this one doesn't, and it's cheaper too.

There was an EBay deal of $500 for the A6000 kit with the 16-50 lens. But that's not even my point; my point is that the A6000 is 1.5 years old, and probably will be replaced with an even better one soon, yet it has EVF, better sensor, etc., how's this Canon going to compete?

Canon: pay attention!

Well, I hope they make it shock proof as well, as I can imagine that many will curse it and throw it on the ground when they can't take the picture they want.

What an utterly stupid "feature"!

Honest question:
What is the advantage of this camera over the Sony A6000?

Now I know what the Canon "See Impossible" campaign was about -- they saw a Sony at the end of the tunnel :-)

On article Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review (468 comments in total)

In Dpreview's jargon, does "silver" stand for "blah blah"? Is there anything that has a rating lower than silver?

Canon: take note, even the lowly fixed-lens camera by Sony is doing 4K video, and your 5Ds/R still doesn't ...

Let's put the senor in 80D and 7D III (or 8D) please.

So why didn't they put these sensors in the 7D II ???

Amazing that they are still in business.

In reply to:

webrunner5: I would just rather stick to my 70-200 2.8 and 1.4 extender. About the same money and a lot more useful all around. Just walk a little closer. I don't regard this lens as a Birder anyways. Still too short unless on a crop camera.

Walk a little closer? "Zoom with feet", huh?

That is the most idiotic notion in photography. If one takes BIF (bird in fly), how's he supposed to zoom with feet, or "walk a little closer"? Fly with the bird?
