Re: Better DR for better photos??

At least, in my case, I already have a Canon full frame system. The 32 megapixels of the 5Div is plenty. In fact, it's kind of a nuisance because copying, opening and editing files takes longer.

While the Nikon definitely looks interesting, the better video resolution doesn't interest me, especially since it can't focus video as well as the Canon. I think in-focus video is more important than sharper video anyway.

At the end of the day, I have to ask whether this Nikon would deliver better photos. And that would require better low light performance and better DR.

Most "higher DR" photos I have seen do not make for "better". More like "making up for talent". Or "lack of taste".

I'll wait for the test results, but I doubt that we'll see a significant difference in those areas... so I tend to doubt that this camera will make my photos better.

Why is it that on a gear forum when someone points out another camera has better sensor performance the default comeback is "it won't make you a better photographer".

This is a gear forum. We are comparing performance of gear not photographers which would be a photographers forum.

Greg.

Very true.  The higher quality camera will always give a photographer more to work with.  But this inst about a photographer...just the tool.
