R7 sample gallery - your first thoughts

After browsing the R7 gallery I feel a bit torn. Sure, these are quick snapshots in daylight and JPEGs only - And many seem hot on the exposure which really isn't good for colors but overall I am not that impressed. After all, DPR did use Camera Standard which is supposed to give "umph" to the look. At least it used to.

Canon seems to push for a slightly "synthetic" and downtuned rendering of colors these days. I can't put my finger on what it is exactly but they don't have those deep rich tones that many other camera brands have these days. Again, yes the lighting. But I think Panasonic, Olympus, Fujifilm etc handle this better.

The semi-pro segment such as 7D-series and XXD series used to have a very vibrant look with eyepleasing colors right out of the gate. This one, not so much.

Anyway...as always the proof is in the RAW files and profiles. And which lenses that are used. But I can at least already spot how the R7 is "tuned" in the house-profiles. Boring.

One thing though - not sure it is the case but the tonecurve seems to be slightly more conservative. And by that I mean no more Canon-crushed blacks.
