j900: Canonites are finally gonna love the dxomark.

Exactly. Suddenly, the measurements and numbers will make much more sense than before! :D

Stepanfo: Sharpness in not measured with monetary value of the lens. When stopped down, lenses used in the studio shot comparison are equally sharp.

Lack of details is the problem of this camera. Live with it.

Emfor: Click measurements, sharpness, field map, select aperture 5.6 - all are the same - excellent.

Jonathan Brady: PEOPLE! Too many of you are making a big deal out of minor differences. Look... this is a comparison of camera sensors AND lenses as well as apertures. The comparison linked by DPR compares the following...
5D Mark IV with 85mm f/1.8 at f/5.6
5D Mark III with 85mm f/1.8 at f/7.1
Nikon D810 with 85mm f/1.8G at f/5.6
Sony A7RII with 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* at f/5.6

The Sony SHOULD be the sharpest of all of these. It has the highest resolution sensor, probably the sharpest lens (costing $1000), a lens that is literally decades newer than the one used on the Canon cameras (costing $370), and it's a wider angle lens meaning it's closer to the target.

Additionally, each sensor/lens combo is going to have areas of strengths and weaknesses. One combo may be better in one small area of the test scene while it's worse in others. THIS IS NORMAL and TO BE EXPECTED.

No need for chest thumping. Accept that there will be differences in performance AND interpretation.

Mystery about picture 2461642662 solved: I think that the guy in orange was doing something very inappropriate there and it was necessary to get him out of the frame! :D

This review probably comes just a few months before the next model is announced. I fail to see much sense in this.

Image quality of this new Canon is quite comparable to Nikon D500, a crop camera. At hight ISO Nikon is something like 1/3 stop worse, but it has much better DR at low ISO.

If somebody from Nikon was be more reasonable, the standard ISO range would end at 25 600, and there would be two extended options, ISO 51 200 and 102 400.

RonHendriks: Iso 1.6 miljion is bullsh*t.

I would argue that ISO 400 000 is already pretty bulls.. pretty bad.

I wish there were more pictures in the reasonable high ISO range (3200-16000).

These types of shots simply CANNOT be backfocused!!! Edit - now I see that the author already commented about it.

This shot looks good only when it is really small. In normal conditions the misfocus in really painfully visible.

BTW the reason why we have large inconvenioent DSLR cameras is to avoid these kinds of technical errors. These cameras are quick and offer significant controll over the photo creation.

By chance I have the same camera. Its center point in quite large and it is not always easy to preciselly define the right place we want to focus on with it. There are ways around it.

I am really frustrated that you ruined this shot!!!

In reply to:

VivaLasVegas: This glass is longer, heavier compared to EF counterpart, with so much more glass elements only to have a so-so mtf chart, this is not good. What.....the collar cost $$$, I knew it, that five step VR designation was a way to price gouge the consumers.

My dear Viva, it has much better MTF chart that Canon. You probably forgot that Nikon publishes only wide opened lines, while canon publishes wide opened and f8 lines in the same graph, what can become confusing for sipler minds... :D

It is very obvious that you added different sky. The editing job is very poor. You you be better off if you left it original state and did nothing to it.
