Is the lens on the G1XIII sharp? If not, then forget about it...

The lens on this camera had better be a sharp one. Otherwise, what's the point?

dpr4bb: The question now is: what did Canon do to "differentiate" this from the f/1.2L ;)

Surely Canon would prefer that everyone bought f/1.2L, no?

Wow! This was an eye opener. I've been a Canon shooter for a very long time, partly because of the "Canon colors." Sony was the clear winner in this test for me.

lawny13: One thing though... take the D750 and compare it to the 6DII at properly exposed settings by ISO adjustments. For example both at 6400... the 6DII to me looks better.

In other words if you just expose correctly the 6DII is not bad. Pulling 2-3EV is doable without making a scene look fake.

On the other hand we are comparing it to a camera that is 1 gen older, so it should actually do better. In the end most people won't notice it in practice.

But, not matter how I justify it, it has me waiting to see what the A7III will have to offer rather than switching back to canon.

They both get the same exposure in the DPR comparison tests. The comparison is valid and fair.

J A C S: The samples look really good ... because DPR resisted the urge to lift the shadows to demonstrate the DR of the camera... Deep shadows and punchy colors, and everybody is happy.

Had to get that off your chest, didn't you ;)
What do you think of the lens itself?

dpr4bb: The one glaring shortcoming of the 6D, AF points packed in the center of the frame, remains unsolved on the 6DII. Pathetic!

I have owned many Canon cameras and accessories for many, many years and own a 6D now. Your baseless and false comment is what's truly pathetic here.
Please stop your incessant trolling of everyone and anyone who doesn't share your utter enchantment with everything and anything Canon.

Limited AF-point coverage and worse shadow-noise performance, too?!?
Canon must have concluded that the 6D was too good compared to the 5DIII. They seemed to have done more "product differentiation" on the 6DII. Good job, Canon!

The near-perfect blur at f/2.8 is just lovely.
This lens alone makes me want to buy into the Sony FE system.

It's a shame that the lens isn't so good at the wide end, just like the one on the G7X. Lovely camera, otherwise...

Rishi,
At F2.8 will depth of field and degree of background blur truly be the same as a non-APD lens at F2.8? The fact that peripheral light rays are being blocked should have an effect.

It's too bad that Canon chose to not give us a sharper lens.

Give us a good lens or go home, Canon!
