The George Foreman Grill of high end photographs; find a formula and sell the crap out of it. I say good for Lik but bad for the investor.

Dear Sony,
I hate you! Your temptation maybe too great for me to overcome.

Good job Sony!

This should be excellent in the hands of talented people. While not for everyone, it's very useful in it's niche.

Dual pixel AF for the 7d ii's video quality is like having Jimmy Johnson race in a POS Corolla.

KameraFever: Dead on arrival. The 'me too camera'. For $200 more I can get the Bad Ass Panasonic LX100 with 4k. There are cheap RX100 I and II models everywhere. What happened to Canon's innovation? I guess they got too comfortable and got blind sided by the likes of Sony, Panasonic, Fujifilm, and Olympus.

The G7X just doesn't capture my interest. Sony RX100 was released in 2012. That is two years late to the party. If a true small pocket-able camera is only to be considered, I would go with the RX100 mk III, which has xavc-s video codec and is a better all-around tool. Oh, and used rx100 mkI can be got for around $350 if speed is not really a factor.

Different strokes for different folks. Maybe this camera is for you, but I wouldn't use the word 'innovative' to describe this camera.

LOL. I will hold back from letting this get further. Have wonderful day.

@Tonkotsu Troll

It's a perfectly valid statement. The LX100 is still light and small enough for my needs as a travel camera. Notice how I include the rx100 cameras too. You added nothing to the conversation.

I also wish this had a mic input. Still, great camera.

MPerks: I don't see any mention of OIS. Surely it has OIS right?

Incorrect. It does have optical image stabilization. I saw it in the specs.

I don't think there is OIS. That would have made it perfect. Still damn good.

KameraFever: You know who will not sneer away from this camera? Videographers, care least about about what the name badge. If the NX1 delivers the goods in great 4k video, they will be all over this. Did you see the secondary market revolved around the Panasonic GH series? The same thing will happen here.

DX0 is of some use to get a ball park idea of how a sensor performs. However, if used at optimum settings, it negates much of the differences. The better question is how consistent can you get optimum output from the camera/lens/system combo?

In reply to:

Charlie Jin: I know the quality of the Canon 7D. I brought it to Annapurna, Mt. Fuji, and many other mountains in Canada and Washington State. I dropped it so many times, got wet in rain and snow. A lot of dust situations also. It survived quite well and still working in excellent condition. What a camera... It is heavy though. Since it still produces good pictures, I have no reason to upgrade to Mark II at this moment. Another thing I would like to mention is that 15-85mm lens is really, really sharp with Canon 7D. Maybe I was lucky to get an excellent copy of the lens, but unless you get are very lucky to get an excellent copy of 24-70mm, it will be very hard to beat 15-85mm, except the brightness.

Yes. It is the best in class for it's intended purpose, quick pace high action photography. I actually prefer APS-C too. But one thing that drives me crazy about Canon is their refusal to build top notch APS-C prime lenses. That by itself keeps me away from both Canon and Nikon. I'm seriously considering the Fuji X-T1 or Samsung NX1. The Canon 7D mark II is a beast of camera that unfortunately has to be weighed down by full frame lenses.

What is the video quality like? Does it have the same softness as the 70D video? Hopefully not.

Jesus. Yes! That 4k promo is the best 4k promo I have seen from an enthusiast camera that records direct to card. The night sky shot was amazing! Low light video must be very good for it to get that. Wow!

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (202 comments in total)

I love the imagge quality coming from these cameras.BUT...

After reading about the terrible handling and performance combine with the lack of raw support I will pass. I can even deal with the iso limitation. I just wish the foveon tech would get liscenced to a compamy capable of creating a good handling camera like canon, nikon, olympus, or fujifilm.

It's like you see the potential for an amazing landscape camera, but it then gets put together like Frankenstien. Can someone please make a great landscape foveon camera? I pray.
