vscd: On paper the D5 outperforms the 1DXM2 with "4 MegaISO". Seems it was only marketing. Told you so. ;)

Great idea! Would have never thought about that: )

Howabout raw...

It is all-day business to shot with more than 1 stop off, at least if you do shot something different than test charts or landscapes.

brumd: IF
-the RAW files could be handled by Adobe - or- 2nd option: the camera would output lossless TIFFs.
-the camera is signicantly more responsice than the DP1 Merrill I once owned
-it will take at least 300 pics on 1 battery

THEN
I would be really really interested in a Foveon ILC at this pricepoint. I look forward to the review.

Brumd:

An weathersealed mirrorless APS-C with great design, PDAF, VF for 799 $ ?

Don´t buy one, than I can get a second body :)

What an offer! Take my money right away Sigma!

Looks like a really great camera. Love the rendering of its lens!

I can not afford one, so I´ll stay with my Nikon 28mm f1.8 G, which is not nearly as compact, but has a pretty similiar rendering with great bokeh.

And I can get the Nikon D810 on top and still have money to travel left ;)

FUJI?

The Fuji line grows and lots of photographers Pros & amateure alike use them - please support X-Trans!

Can not be that hard and a "major rewrite" as some claim:

Even the One man show Iridient supports it and supports it really well, as well as Apple RAW, Lightroom & ACR, Capture One, and smaller ones like SilkyPix, PhotoNinja, Aftershot Pro and even free Software like the very good Raw Therapee.

I paid lots of money since buying V7 and upgrading to 8, 9 and now DXO Optics Pro 10.

But there will be no 11 for me without support of my second camera system. Period.

Great video!

Seems to be a game changing camera! Good work, Sony.

But I think my Canon 6D is focusing to -3 EV already... Would have been nice to see a comparison, as the 6D is a low light AF Champ...

munro harrap: Scarily big, you see the problem with that copy of the 16-35mm II!! not a lens I would choose to use. The car interior deliberately underexposed by a stop, was already at least a stop underexposed due to the meter relying on the highlights outside, so to be objective (rather than objectionable!) you need to meter directly off a midtone inside the car , or point an incident light meter from inside the car itself towards the lens position (with the photographer stood there blocking with your shadow, more light (assistant necessary!)

I note that the lens at all apertures cannot evenly cover the sensor, so it would be nice to gat one that can and do some more please! Love the back of the preacher's car shot!

Well, they did not use the 16-35II, they used the new 16-35 / 4L. Reviewed as a very very good lens, but this copy seems decentered.

In reply to:

Orin B.: Is it really true that standalone Lightroom 6 owners will not get these updates? If so, I am both frustrated and annoyed with Adobe. I have purchased every Lightroom upgrade and have appreciated the softwares features and until now feel I have recieved what I paid for. But if they make me go the subscription route because they won't include features in the stand alone version I already paid for I might have to consider Capture One.

Q / Are Capture One Pro 8 and Capture One Subscription the same software?

A / Yes! In regards to features, Capture One Subscription is identical to Capture One Pro 8. As something new, we will release new software features as they are developed instead of waiting for major release cycles (e.g. Capture One Pro 6 to 7). This is true for both Capture One Subscription and for Capture One Pro 8.

That´s the difference. For sure they can change it in the future - but well, everything can happen in the future...

Capture One 8 is introducing cool new features or tools with every new update...since I bought it around christmas 2014 I had 3 feature updates. Awesome!

As much as I like Lightroom since Version 2, Capture One gets more and more interesting...

Well, that´s true but I still dislike adobe to force me down the CC route to get the newest features.

I bought Capture One 8 a while ago and while I think they are mostly on par in image processing, Capture One did introduce really cool new features with all of their 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 updates - not just some DXO Optics Pro dehaze stuff ;)

The new Color Balance wheels are awsome!

Adobe do as they say but Capture One does better ;)

In reply to:

refusenik: As a Capture One Pro 8 user, I submitted a support request to PhaseOne for some new lens profiles back in January, yet they don't seem to have made it in this release.

Wow,

maybe they had other things to do? Come on, that´s like 10 weeks and only one realase ago and these lenses are maybe not their top priority.

I would expect them to have a timeline for adding new lenses, probably 100s of them....

refusenik: I've just upgraded to version 10 Elite with ViewPoint 2.5 for the princely sum of £25 - very happy. Thanks DXO for so generously rewarding your Optics Pro 9 customers.

Same with me...upgraded to 9 like half a year ago, now an paid upgrade to 10 (69€)? Pew.

On the other hand I really like my 6D. It´s a nice balanced camera.

Come on Canon - you can make great stuff - get your gear together, you can do it!

Please wake up.

Even though I don´t like fake SLR designs like the Olympus OM-D and prefer my X-Pro1, this camera looks pretty damn good!

Well done Fuji Design Dep.!

I hear it will be weather sealed?

In reply to:

Sean65: If I remember right, my Nikon D700 had one firmware update in four years. I used to be proud of this as it suggested 'how right' Nikon got the camera, first time round.

Fuji have a different approach. It's more like 'live R&D'. It's not a good thing in most cases. Fuji seem to be balancing on the edge of greatness but ALWAYS get let down by their designs.

I with you 100% on the shutter button issue.

But remember, 3 years ago, you would have bought a camera and whatever feature "that should have been there in the first place" and wasn´t just wasn´t there and the camera stayed that way - because you bought it as it was.

I wish my Canon 5D Classic would get an AutoISO update - would be perfect for me, but hey - even though it was a 2800$ premium camera in 2005 you NEVER get a new feature for it via an update. Buy the 5D II or the 5D III if you want AutoISO :P - that´s what other manufacturer say.

Anyway I would have bought and use the X-Pro1 with it´s original features, even with all the quircks. That it is now effectivly a 2013 camera is just pure joy ;)

Thank you Fuji for taking photographers seriously and listening to them!

This is great - I´ll keep my X-Pro1 and recently bought 2 more lenses!
