Is this guy serious? Chuck please, take a look at these cameras:
1) Sigma DP2 Merrill for ultimate pixel level image quality
2) Pentax 645 and Nikon D810 for high resolution image WITH great dynamic range and ISO performance
3) Samsung NX1 for video features and image quality
4) Panasonic GH4 for overall versatility without compromises and possibility to use any lens on M43 mount on mirrorless body
5) tiny Blackmagic PCC for ability to shoot 10-bit Prores and 12-bit Raw video
6) Sony A7S for magic ISO and dynamic range performance
Now tell me, do you think about your new pricey cameras? What are you going to offer?

Shiranai: Meanwhile at the Canon headquarters:

Manager 1: We rule the camera market.
Manager 2: We rule the world.
Manager 3: But we don't rule medium format...

Moment of silence, chirping.

Manager 1: Doesn't mind, release a new 5D, squish 50 MP on the sensor, but cripple something so it doesn't compromise 1DX or 5DM3 sales.
Manager 3: Video mode, like we always do?
Manager 1: Good, but thats not enough. Do something with the ISO!
Manager 3: Perfect, we are so naughty.
Manager 2: Oh yeah, and the others did that aliasing filter thingie last year.
Manager 1: Ok I have a great idea, let's release two 5D models one WITH the aliasing filter and one without, that'll teach them a lesson. Also, put a medium format price tag on them so they know we are serious.
Manager 3: But they aren't...
Manager 1: Shut up, and make it so. We are Canon, it's not supposed to make sense. The main point is, we release something new.

Evil laughter while picture zooms outside of the headquarter.

Brilliant :))

Who needs 50 interpolated megapixels with the same dynamic range and same or worse ISO performance as predecessors? Where is some serious improvement for video shooters?
Not impressed.

Now do it with some up-to-date camera like Samsung NX1.
Thanks.

It´s not only about Dxo...
Canon could come with up-to-date video with HEVC h.265 codec, 4K, BSI APS-C sensor, 15 fps with tracking autofocus with 209 contrast points and 205 phase detection sensors, 153 of which are cross-type and more...
Let´s compare image quality:

Awesome!
H.265. Sooo tits!!!:)
After using S5 cellphone with 4K and great HDR mode I believe this camera is a gamechanger.

Thank you. It´s an excellent idea to compare these two most tempting cameras on the market today.

Exciting and very promising. I like it a lot, looks sharp and reasonable.

In reply to:

JudgeDread: These silver/gold awards certainly are the most absurd ratings a technical review could ever use. This camera paired with a 20/F1.7 is really an excellent (maybe the best) sub FF mirrorless combo, really small, excellent rendition of human skin at high iso.

Agree, it is best M43 camera to date...

In reply to:

petr marek: Great. Missing Foveon/Sigma, very important benchmark!

To R Butler:
In the next few years we might see different types of sensors - organic from Fuji, layered Foveon-like (Sony, Panasonic patents) etc. Will dpreview really ignore other than Bayer sensors in comparsion scene...? In fact I think it might be interesting to have a classical film example - 35mm and medium format.

It worked with the old scene... And it shows clearly the deficiency in true smooth sharpness and decent color rendering of majority of other cameras. You can ad: "Warning - don´t compare with others, might look not so "digital"!!!"
