In reply to:

toni2: Canon 7d mk2: perhaps best aps-c camera specifications, and worst aps-c sensor.

Nobody knows how good the actual sensor is... considering it was introduced to the world 2 days ago, its awfully presumptuous of the naysayers to pass judgment...

If you're desperate to support Nikon blatantly or covertly go over to the D750 ... It could use some support...

supeyugin1: A new king of pocketable compacts! Canon finally dethroned Sony. And it's cheaper too! Good job, Canon.

But the G7X is already a technically improved version of the RX100 / II & possibly even III ... Only thing in Sony's favor is the EVF... But traditionally Canon has always had the upper hand where IQ is concerned... Plus Canon's image stabilization is head over heels better than what Sony offers... alas time will tell...

steelhead3: Since they are using a Sony sensor, will the DR of this nice looking camera surpass the Canon dslrs?

Based on past experience between the brands its safe to say that the Canon will have superior high ISO performance (both RAW & JPEG) compared to the Sony RX100 III & Panny FZ1000

Regarding the fast f1.8-2.8 lens... Sensor size plays an important role here... so its unlikely to beat the 7D II at high ISO... but may come dangerously close to superseding the renowned 7D, 60D & 550 - 700D ...

TheDreamingWatchman: I'm sure this is a very good camera.
The AF-speed will be quite impressive.

However the 7DII is just not sexy! There is not one WOW-feature!
I'm missing the tilted screen which is very useful in certain situations.
Why is there no touch screen like on the 70D?
Why did Canon not implement Wi-Fi like on the 6D and 70D? (I don't need Wi-Fi to upload pictures; I want Wi-Fi to control the Camera remotely, which is an amazing feature for wildlife.)
I always had the feeling that Canon is so ungenerous: Why no time-lapse in Camera like Fuji? Why not several shots triggered by the self-timer like Nikon? These features hardly cost anything, but Canon is just too stingy!
However my most important reservation is ISO noise and dynamic range. The ISO performance of the 7D was just pathetic; the dynamic range was not very good.
The 7DII will be a little bit better in these regards and a little bit better is just not good enough for 2014!

Forget just the ISO ... everything about this camera is horrible >>>-----> In fact Canon will soon be made redundant due the introduction of this "horrible camera" ------> That would probably be your perfect world... Then you get a cold hard dose of reality... realize Nikon is and always will be No. 2 (literally too) and come to the conclusion that this world doesn't revolve around you...

Based on that beta model... very impressive indeed... Even ISO 51200 is hugely commendable...

Zeisschen: It will be the last 7d dear Canon boys. In another 5 more years there will be no more DSLR

This "last" , "final" and "penultimate" theory has been doing the rounds for years... In the end the naysayers are always proven wrong...

Mihut Ovidiu: Except for the battery life and the included GPS, on paper, nothing makes the Canon 7D II more attractive than the Sony A77 II. On the contrary.

And one more thing... there's so much more to a camera than just "sensor tech" ... Sony has a great sensor in the RX100 III but their heavy handed approach to image processing results in clumpy fine detail... just as an example...

Check the financial stats for both companies... Canon is No.1 for good reason and leads the competition across P&S, super-zoom, travel zoom, APS-C and full frame... Nikon isn't even in second place... Of course micro four thirds is dominated by Panny & Olympus... buts that's a different class of camera by itself...

Dave Luttmann: No 4K video. Same rehashed sensor tech from more than 5 years ago. Looks like Canon has been asleep the last half decade.

Better DR is true... but better noise is highly contentious not to mention speculative... Canon may use "inferior" sensors according to dxo & you ... but the reality is their image processing & noise reduction algorithms are still the best...

The Canon whips both the D7100 & A77 II ... can't see the logic behind your comment... The 7D II in all probability will go on to break most sales records for this class of camera...

If you've ever used the original A77 you'll understand why Sony has at least a decade to go before it can stake claim to being the No. 1 APS-C camera manufacturer...

The sensor is 1 year old... Five years ago none of the manufacturers even had 20 MP APS-C sensors...

MikeF4Black: The moaners are out in force. Why? Nikon now has a full frame line-up like no other camera maker. Quite an achievement.

*Best* only according to DXO ... nobody else sings their praises quite as ardently... Considering they're 100% Sony designed & developed sensors... Sony could just as easily stake claim to having the best sensors... the difference between Nikon & Sony probably lies in their respective image processing pipelines -- Nikon's conforming to DXO's testing methodology - therefore getting the better score...

backayonder: Just curious why you would buy a D610 now that the D750 has come along?

D610 sales probably aren't quite as good as what Nikon would have hoped for it to be... As a result we have the D750 ... basically a glorified D600 / 610

Probably using refurbished sensors from all the D600 camera's returned due to oil spots... Buy at your own risk...

Full frame line up with a bunch of recycled 3 year old sensors...

Dimitris Mitrovgenis: PEOPLE this camera rocks.I love it.It is strong,weather sealed with a new AF system!!!!And not to mention the manageable 24.3 mp. This is the best all around camera to this date.Small light and powerful.
It is better than the 5D mkIII in all aspects.Get serious.
this is the one that tickles me so far.

Oh please... the 5D III is almost 3 years old...! It damn sure had better be better than the Mark III ... had the two camera's been "equal" the Nikon might as well have been relegated to the bargain basement section...

You have to be a diehard Apple fan to buy either of these to phones... With new offerings from Samsung, Sony & LG ... these new 6th gen Apples already seem rather antiquated...

But for extended sessions of Full HD recording, I'd much rather prefer the option of memory cards... 128 GB sounds good in theory... but with dozens of apps and the OS itself... that 128 GB is going to shrink considerably...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1532 comments in total)

The 5D Mark III is an all-round class act... definitely superior to the D800 / 800E / 810 in low light...

As for DXO... well I suppose the average Nikon fan needs their egos propped up from a "scientific" point of view... thus its existence...

Its amazing how many pro's use Canon... despite DXO's claims of Nikon's vast sensor tech prowess... at most major international sporting events white lenses still reign supreme... with perhaps with a thin speckling of black glass here and there... :)

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (195 comments in total)

Waiting with bated breath for the Canon SX60 HS... It needs to take the crown from its predecessor and its rightful place as the undisputed king of all super zooms...

Alternatively Canon also need to enter the 1" sensor market... perhaps with an interchangeable lens system like the Nikon 1 series... and a fixed lens RX100 / 10 style compact / zoom...
