Couscousdelight: For cheaper than a 6DII you can have a Pentax K-1, and it gives you :

36Mpxl
14Ev od dynamic
IBIS + pixel shift
35 cross Af points
A rugged body adapted for most situations.
And many more...

@JhvaElohimMeth

I wouldn't put my own money into it. Would have to be employer provided. I like a good piece of tech as anyone, but personally investing in that system is another thing entirely.

I have plenty of landscapes from multiples shot on my trusty canons - continuing to use them wont exactly be the end of the world. One day I'll get to play with the competition, but it isn't that serious.

I'm not the 6d's biggest fan but the iso works great and ill have to keep mine for now. I want my flippy though!

Unless you don't want nor care about pentax.

Because there are many of us like that.

D7000ShooterUK: This is a shame and a deal breaker. Seriously, if you are not already heavily invested in Canon then get the Nikon D750 instead.

If i had the budget, i would certainly buy into a 750, even with nikons terrible relative customer service. I would totally use it for all my landscapes and the canons for all the people stuff.

MLP120: I just bought my Bowens system about 8 months ago. I just ordered 2 more flash tubes. I wonder if another company will continue making flash tubes for the Bowens or if I should order spares?

Where would be a good time to get them on liquidation prices?

@Toselli

That's great for you, however if you go through the MANY threads regarding LR performance, it's usually at or near the top of the list.

Its just a terribly coded app, no more, no less. Adobe sucks.

NO.

The video card is usually the first thing that gets turned off. Adobe's implementation doesn't work.

Wacoms are great. Ive been using them for 20 years non stop. The pens wear out too fast for my liking though.

At the last photo expo, i had one question - have they manged to make the textured coating over the active tablet surface NOT wear out after not so long? Im currently still on my Intuos 4 - and the most active area of use is worn off.

The guy couldn't answer the question. Once the texture wears off, you are left with a slightly reflective, utterly smooth area. So i would love to buy a Cintiq, but if the coatings going to wear off, then no dice.

Hopefully next time they can answer that question.

In reply to:

(unknown member): DP Review folks around here are astounding me... they could even whine about a 50 $ lens why it isn't perfect in any sense... those consumers have lost touch to reality. If you want close to perfection performance you need to pay a lot more money - that's the same with all kind of products you can buy on the market.

A-sign - he's actually telling the truth there. Sorry it pains you to hear.

In reply to:

TimT: I didn't look at all of them, but I did look at at least 30 at 100%, and I can't find even one that looks sharp. Were they all shot handheld? The center of the images look much better than the soft edges, but still not sharp, so is it the lenses?

Im sure Barney and the gang noticed, but no explanation why it is so.

In reply to:

zlatko: What's with all of the "not sharp" comments? You're probably viewing the photos at more than 100%. I've downloaded a bunch of samples here and viewed them at 100% in Photoshop and they look super sharp. I would not want them any sharper.

Because some pics are definitely not sharp at all. And there's something wrong with that if its a 'sample gallery'.

If my camera was producing such softness, i'd be pulling out my hair trying to find out why. Its not a good look.

Nikoncanonfan: The 5d iii isn't really a pro camera, that would be the 1dx. I wouldn't swap it for anything id rather have amazing build and the joy of using such an instrument over higher pixel counts.

oh boy....yeah, its more for 'enthusiast' wedding photogs. sheesh.

I'm not looking at the whole gallery, but images 5 & 6 do NOT look right. Not at all.

It looks as if actual focus just 'missed', none of the ground elements even remotely sharp.

Something is clearly amiss here., and it doesnt matter if its jpeg or raw.

jacobfreeze: Look Ma! It's a mudhole in the middle of nowhere, along with a few dim photos from a dying brand.

@jacobfreeze

I'm not sure what point your making. Your opinion is that canon is dying. If that is 'true', so now what.

ILC market has been contracting for years. Wow, breaking news.

Now what.

Canon isn't going anywhere. Neither is Sony. Nikon is almost on deathwatch.

Amazing.

So your point again, was...

oh, it's a pititful brand...

What a fool you're making of youreself.

brockmo: With a few exceptions, if posted here anonymously, most of these photos would be severely criticized (to put it mildly).

Most of them are just not that great. A few barely pass as pictures. And there's a sliver of very nice ones.

Overall I was kind of taken aback myself, I thought magnum was stuff was going to give me inspiration. Alas, there is none to be had from this set. Maybe next time.

Mariano Pacifico: I suggest DPReview should have two review categories: One for pixel-peeping toms and another review just by plain-look at the picture

Dude, just dont look at your images at all. Then you wont see anything, and we wont see your looney comments.

Sorry, i just had to...your ignorance is amazing.

AngularJS: This guy http://www.gaszynski.pl/ shoots sports with the old 6d without any complain about AF. I don't see any reason why the 6dm2 should be worse and only capable to shoot static objects?

@barney

OK Thanks. I think what is confusing to me is that the 80d live view (focus?) tracking is universally praised, but then when you say basically all x/y/z/+distance tracking is not great....I've seen this stated in many dp mentions and it just throws me for a loop. Viewfinder tracking and live view tracking are different beasts, so I'm assuming you are speaking specifically of the viewfinder tracking in terms of being weak.

thx again!
