Nick Brundle - Photography: Having used the 5D MkIV & the 750D I prefer the colours, handling and autofocus from the 5D model.
My view from a pro

I'm sorry, but using these cameras make you a semi pro rather than a pro.

Apparently it's bad lack to skip the number 6, not to use it.
They can still rectify this by calling the next model note 6.

AbrasiveReducer: A (relatively) simple optical viewfinder would have made this a cult camera and distinguished it from the GR and $300 Coolpix A.

Please take a quick look at picture #7

Akpinxit: come to think of it : this kind of camera , which NASA may choose to install on it's vehicles\shuttles - no touch screen nor video , but though and capable to capture high resolution scene in single shot

Files too big
Transmission from space would take forever

RichRMA: The D300's "litter runt" edition 3 is born! BTW, why use a wide angle shot to make the 18-135mm lens look so much bigger than it is?

They also presented the camera using a female chinese soldier in uniform, so that the camera would look huge in comparison to her tiny hands

Howard: So why didn't they put these sensors in the 7D II ???

The 7D II sensor has the dual pixel feature for better live view focusing

In reply to:

rinkos: sorry ..i find the colors dull . as if they were washed a bit.
quality is good, but the color richness reminds me a compact camera .

as for the other camera aspects..people have already named the flaws they found .

You are probably used to either Sony or Samsung colors, which tend to be on the saturated side.
To me the colors look great, sharpness is fine except for the extreme wide angle of the lens. Seems like a very nice travel camera for people who don't use EVFs.
Good job producing this nice gallery, DPR

TN Args: Let's say Sigma released a 35mm f/2.8 for $150 and its optics were the same. Everyone would say "well la di da, I expect no less, 35mm and f/2.8 is hardly a challenge."

And they would be right.

actually when Canon introduced the excellent 40/2.8 at dirt cheap prices people were not impressed.
honestly I see no reason to get excited about this expensive slow Sony lens.

mpgxsvcd: Micro Four Thirds just sucker punched Canon and Nikon. They didn't even see it coming. Now if only we could get Andre Agassi or Ashton Kutcher to advertise for Panasonic people would actually know what m4/3s is.

Canon 70d is selling like crazy. It will continue to do as well regardless of the the GH4.

The GH4 is a very cool camera, though.

In reply to:

Aroart: I think Canons video dept just had a stroke. The gh3 noise in lowlight put me off but the gx7 and gm1 video output is close to the 5d mark 3. Who knows maybe canons new 7d m2 will have 4k. If not canons going to have lots of video guys switching over..If Pani put in a 5 axis image stabilizing sensor than canon video based line will be fuc!?# $.....

Switching systems is very expensive, and 4k is not an absolute requirement yet.
If I was a videographer using the Canon system I would have waited for Canon to come out with a 4k DSLR.
Canon are building a solid video-oriented DSLR line with their dual-pixel and STM technologies, don't write them off yet.

Kurt_K: Stellar optics, no doubt, but man are these Touit lenses ugly.

LOL, I was just thinking: beautiful lenses, wonder how the optics are.

In reply to:

grafli: Well this lens is obsolet with the existence of the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8

No. The Nikon is FF and the Sigma can only be mounted on APSC cameras.

In reply to:

cgarrard: Samsung's rubbing elbows with cell phone users is not going to save their photo business (what little there is of it in the first place).

Samsung had a chance to really get ahead of Sony and other mirrorless makers and totally dropped the ball. Then they ran off the field and realized later what they had done. They then try to come back into the game. Uh no... it don't work that way Samsung.

NX300 is old news, stale.

Don't underestimate non-USA markets.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: There is a big difference between voting with a button click and voting with the wallet.

What DPR should do is to review the results of this survey to ACTUAL SALES of the same period.

Now THAT would be a very interesting article to digest.

Good DPR assignment too.

Regardless, this survey is fun exercise for DPR viewers.

.

Of course these are two different things.

But that is just the point. Last year I voted for the Nikon d800 although I cannot afford it, I don't need it, and I won't buy it because I have a bunch of canon lenses. Still, I liked it and I thought it was the camera of the year.

It's a game. Enjoy it.

Pentax can enjoy their 15 minutes of fame...

Because the K3 (a fine camera, by the way) is going to be all forgotten about once the 7d mk II is introduced.

what's the excitement?

10-24
10-24
10-24

or 14/2.8 if you need fast wide angle. This is an extremely useful range on APSC , and 10-24 2.8 would have been huge.

On article DPReview Gear of the Year: Canon Rebel SL1 / EOS 100D (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

TN Args: This "Gear of the Year" rating comes from a man who says the Panasonic GX7 deserves a second-rate rating from dpreview.

Even more hilarious this rating, when you consider his only clear reason for picking this camera is that he already has multiple Canon lenses. That is such a personal factor that it is irrelevant to so many readers.

Let' compare the two cameras.

The "Not Worth a Gold Award" GX7 has:
- better sensor performance (check DXOMark or the dpreview widget)
- faster focusing
- more accurate and consistent focusing
- silent mode option
- bigger viewfinder
- better viewfinder information
- smaller body
- better looks
- many compact fast lenses
- better manual focusing, and focus peaking
- in-body image stabilization
- better videography 1080p x 60p, with videoactive viewfinder

Gee, that GX7 is obviously second-rate, Shawn.

Whereas the "Gear of the Year" 100D has:
- poor choice of compact lenses (lacks the very lens Shawn says he would most like)

WAY. TO. GO.

There are many capable cameras on the market, but this series of articles is obviously about which equipment the reviewers LIKED this year. The list of facts(?) you posted has nothing to do with liking a camera. So this reviewer liked the SL1 and didn't like the GX7. Get over it. Posting angry posts when a reviewer chooses a different camera than you'd choose is little bit childish. Don't you think?

The fact that one of the reasons for choosing this camera us that it gives a small body alternative for canon shooters is not hilarious at all. The canon system is extremely popular among DPR readers, and many of these readers, I believe, could enjoy a smaller yet very capable camera body for their lenses.

On article Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan (616 comments in total)
In reply to:

laueddy: For the Fuji XF Camera, Fuji actively improves their camera but coming out with new Firmware for free.

For Canon, the solution is not free new firmware, but a newer Expensive EOS-M ver. 2 camera which the improve is not much more than a firmware upgrade on the Fuji.

Talk about Value here ......., the Fuji XF system rocks.

With that being said, I did just order my EOS-M from BH with the Adapter yesterday. It's not a bad price to purchase as a spare camera that my wife can help me carry around while I have my 5Dm3 and the other big lenses.

Fuji has released the ex-2 after improving the AF on the ex-1 by FW update.
exactly the same happened with the eos-m. I don't see a difference.

chj: No dual pixel?! What a waste of time. I was waiting for the next eos m for dual pixel. Looks like another aps c mirrorless is going to get my money.

which one?
I'm not aware of any MILC with dual pixels.
