SteveAnderson: Certainly doesnt mean Canon have better cameras or camera tech, but really, all these DXO numbers mean much less in the real world than all those fabulous numbers would imply.
People say that colors dont matter anymore because of RAW and other reasons, but, those Canon colors are for real. They just make the most pleasing and accurate colors for skin tones.

Ive spent 30 days manipulating d7200 photos and it is nigh impossible to get it to look as accurate and good as a 50D jpg for asian skin tones in outdoors lighting. Key word is accurate, not just the subjective "pleasing" word.

These total sales are probably based more on marketing than color science ultimately though.

I had a 5D3 and supplemented it with a Sony A7 with the plan to move fully to Sony. Mirrorless FF is very appealing. After giving the camera more than a fair trial I sold it because I, for want of a better word, hated the colour output. Sold both and purchased the 5DS R. Yes the DR is two stops behind Sony and Nikon BUT I don't notice that much in the majority of my shooting. But far more important is the colour output of the 5DS R is very sweet.

Battersea: At least this licensing agreement makes sense.

If there are no "hairs" then a change of name to Kojak will be in order.

I have the Canon 200-400mm f/4 ext and I can say that having the ext switch on the left-hand side is no issue at all, even when using freehand. I usually dis/engage the ext at an appropriate moment, not in the middle of shooting.

The results are awesome and the ext does not drop any quality.

Mlumiere: That the proof that Canon was to late !

I have the Canon 200-400mm f/4 L with 1.4ext which was released in 2013. So please clarify why you think Canon is late?

BobT3218: 3.5kg, holy moly. You would need to be big Arnie to do birds in flight.

I have the Canon version and at 3.6kg I think even Arnie would complain.

jaykumarr: Who first made AF in cameras ? Canon. Who copied and followed? Nikon all other companies.
Which Camera had 50% more pixels than D300 but almost same DR & Noise? Canon (7D). Who followed? Nikon all other companies.
Who first added tele converter in lens? Canon. Who copied and followed? Nikon .
Who made first DSLR?
It seems Nikon is performing better in AF,DR and all aspects compared to it s leader Canon.
Just making one photo copy by mistake is nothing.

Oh, and Jay, What were the first lenses Canon used on their cameras up to, and don't quote me, 1948? Oh yes, Nikon lenses.

Sdaniella: stealing someone else's unremarkable sky (cut-n-paste shenanigans) is a quite a blundering mis-step

especially for a cliche scene that can be had any time or day of the year
the "original" suffers crushed fake shadows, and cranked sky saturation (which i prefer more color, but not fake black shadows, when pp raw or jpegs) ... and inexplicable "lights out" for domed building ... was it a government holiday?

unsure if the lit bridge and lit domed building scene during a season with heavier tree foliage clearly taken several years later (totally new street light installations all over) was stolen as well (non-sky parts)
the second shot (non-sky parts) show more shadow details in the distant horizon (which i prefer uncovered when pp raw or jpegs)

so, who really took original clouds and intrusive contrail in sky?

I rather like that sky. Lush colours.

entoman: A rather more serious photography-related "phobia" is the deep felt and pathetic fear that many forum contributors appear to have, that "someone else" might possibly have a "better" camera than the one they chose themself!

@Vik2012 As my camera is still fully functional and not throttled back in anyway, it has won the best camera vote (somewhere).

Bgpgraebner: Damned if they do, damned if they don't. What's the huge issue people have with Apple? I don't like Samsung phones and yet you don't see me mocking the Note 7's battery fiasco.

Many people look at the situation in totally the wrong way. Companies are not in existence to provide you with lovely goodies. They are business in existence to make money. My father in law was CEO of a large tech company and he once said to me "you don't get where I am by being nice to people". Ethics is a luxury they can't and don't want to afford.

Apple won't fall, neither will Microsoft, Samsung etc.

To use a metaphor, the Elephant in the room is planned obsolescence. More companies do it than people actually realise.

xlabsmedan: its a time for canon to wake up, give your fans a latest technology on your new camera, if not, your competitor do it :)

I use a 5DS R which has a dynamic range of 12.5 stops compared to the Sonys and Nikons which hover around 14. Being a landscape photographer I find that the 5DS R is just fine for about 95% of the time. Once in a which the 5DS R does struggle. So in the "real world", the 12.5 stops of the 5DS R is just fine whereas on paper it is lacking.
