entoman: I predict - when the Canon FF mirrorless is released it will instantly become the biggest selling FF camera on the market. It won't be the best specified. It probably won't have the best performance. It will be more expensive than Sony. But it will SELL like crazy.

Did you mean to say: it will sell to the crazy?

amd: Seriously? Now even dpreview is picking up on that click-bait. A photoshopped Leica, that's all they have... Whatever Canon does next year, nobody knows. This is just throwing dirt and watching what sticks.

Canon mirrorless cameras may not be very impressive, but calling them dirt? Doesn't that go a bit too far?

The way they responsed about the mount suggests it will be an adapter.

misspiggy01: what impresses me most is the a7r3s pixel shift mode. i shoot lots of static objects. if nikon doesnt come up with something similar within the next 2 years this might be my next body after 20 years of nikon...

Right. And tomorrow I will buy a Ferrari. There are literally no downsides to it except cost.

They will not. Pixel-shift is a byproduct of IBIS. Nikon has stabilized lenses, no reason to develop IBIS, so no pixel-shift either.

PhozoKozmos: gritty noisier sharpened higher-rez
A7III, A7RIII, D850

vs

smoother cleaner non-sharpened lower-rez "optimized NR" (overall) ready-to-share-now ooc ...
EOS 6D

at "lower light"
new "normal" ISO 12,800

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=sony_a7iii&attr13_1=canon_eos6d&attr13_2=sony_a7riii&attr13_3=nikon_d850&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=12800&attr16_2=12800&attr16_3=12800&attr126_0=1&attr126_1=1&attr126_2=1&attr126_3=1&normalization=compare&widget=594&x=-0.906845307631553&y=0.7547076535061047

well, the majority masses will not be pleased, nor impressed by noisier images
and for more detail, THEY just shoot closer, or with better light

but diehard detractors (who embrace "noisy raw"="more (not better) detail" even after arduous post-processing) continue to insist otherwise (tweaking NR in post) ... only for the minority who have the extra means (and time)

plain as day

Switch to "daylight". Canon is getting the colors wrong.

onemoreguy: 1/2 to 1 stop better than the D750. Pretty impressive.
Now Sony just needs to fix the jpeg color ( personal view). Speaking of that, why can't camera companies give us the option / freedom to modify our own jpeg color profile ourselves? It's an honest question.

You can select from various modes like "vivid", "portrait", etc. Otherwise shoot RAW. Not sure what else could be offered.

donmarse: I bought into the Canon ecosystem and for the past several years I have regretted that decision. I'm just an amateur that is back to buying point and shoot cameras. Canon doesn't need or want my money and that's cool.

So do probably a lot of Nikon users and Sony A-mount users. The grass is always greener on the other side.

Zdman: He said the word reliability 4 times in his responses. Shows you whats important. Seems to have worked for companies like Toyota and Honda as well. Critics and enthusiasts hate them but everyone keeps buying them. Take a look at something like this for cars http://www.reliabilityindex.com/ . Click on the top 10 and its mostly Japanese boring brands. Click on the bottom 10 and it mostly exciting European brands. Guess which brands get the grief on car sites and which are praised as innovative?

Your camera acts when you ask? What model is it? Wasn't aware that there are cameras with voice control already.

Nissan, Mercedes, and Citroen are both among the top-10 and bottom-10.
It doesn't only depend on the brand.

Reliability is an important quality of cars.
For cameras, it is of lesser interest (except for pros).

Haha, this gave me a good laugh! At least something, as the amount of information is close to zero.

And the Sony exec who said Canon will come out with a FF mirrorless within a year is probably laughing his ass off right now.

MarkNewman87: Not a big fan of Sony with their 'everything for everyman' camera design but this is clearly going to be a benchmark camera for years to come.

That would truly show that you're in need of higher IQ.

I believe, as someone who shoots a Leica, Mark is more used to the "less than everything and that only for the rich" concept.

Tons o Glass 0 Class: 709MP file viewed with a 2.3MP screen - time for a monitor upgrade!

Do you have a 20 megapixel monitor to view images from your camera?

photoaddict: I am just stunned that he's still using an ancient 2005 Mac monitor to demonstrate the high resolution scanned film.

And contrary to what many say, we now have a digital sensor in a given size of a film size that handily outperforms film, the problem is the scaling up the sensor size. It requires a LOT of memory and processing power to capture all at once. And it's simply not economical to produce a sensor of that scale. The cost increases exponentially.

What difference does it make? Any monitor can display an image of arbitrary size at 100% magnification.

JanMatthys: Yes Samsung, we want to commit long-term to your sensors just as much you comitted long-term to your NX mirrorless-cameras.

At least sony is fully commited to their camera system while you left thousands of NX owners in limbo

I am not sure A-mount users would agree.

Rick Knepper: Maybe Samsung can leapfrog Sony and come out with a large format sensor.

Behold the new Galaxy S10 with 8.6 inch screen. We had to make it that large so we could fit the 5x7" image sensor on it.

I hope that this doesn't force Sony to reassign R&D resources from photographic image sensor to smaller sensors.

steelhead3: Don't mention monopoly to the EU...to protect Bosch and Continental, a stiff fine will be aimed at Sony and Samsung.

Yeah, like it's the EU that has recently introduced tariffs to protect their economy...

chrisno: not surprised it will overtake the entire market, they are 10x bigger company than Sony anyway

No they aren't 10x bigger. They are 4-5x bigger in terms of revenue and employees.
