In reply to:

vesa1tahti: Well, maybe an excellent camera. But as a Nikon shooter I don't care about it. P.S. Video properties are not so important; very few real photographers need videos.

Marty4650 agreed. there are also many industrial photographers who need videos too. Photo/video for the industry is about 60:40 for me.

Sergey Borachev: Another day, another article on this Canon 5D IV.

Let me guess, tomorrow, we'll get "The difference between 5D III and 5D IV", followed by "Real World Test Shots" the day after. :-)

Well that's what a camera review site is for, giving information about new cameras.

PanchoVilla: The Nikon D3/D700 buried the 5D into the ground and ignited the high ISO wars making megapixels irrelevant! Nikon for life!

@PanchoVilla

No. Not at ll. I use both Brands (and a Sony) and I do not agree with you in a single sentence.

In reply to:

LeitzKameraAktion: Like so many others, I totally fell in love with the 'look' of the 5D's files. For fashion and portrait work, the 5D creates what I can only describe as an 'arty' look. There's a subtle softness to the colours and tones that is very beautiful. I later bought a 5D/II with a view to it replacing the 5D/I, but didn't find the newer camera quite as special in terms of image quality. I still have my 5D/I and will never part with it!

agreed

Lea5: I'm one of them. Usually I don't "out" myself in public. I suffer depressions since more than 10 years. I'm a happy and very nice person, but sometimes depression strikes me like a lightning. When I was depressed I couldn't take pictures, sometimes for months. I couldn't even take a camera in my hand. I think the depressions came over me trough my experiences in the long years in military service. I'm self employed and do photographs and vids for the industry. Clients are very happy with my work and that makes me happy too. I work very hard and it is my personal water of life. You can see my client work at my profile website link here at DPR.
I got myself out of it with compensation, a filter. I took dark photographs when I was able to work. You can see some of my work when I was depressed at: http://www.stahlwerk-studio.de Easy to spot when I was down. It's funny that some of these pics were published by book publishers like Taschen.

Thank you very much for your kind answers. I did not expect that.

In reply to:

jkrumm: Move to Germany and you can get a quality photography education for close to free. I heard an interview with a guy who was finishing up his doctorate. It can be very valuable to have several years to focus on learning your art, and learning about art. The guy who was just selected to be the official photographer to document National Park architecture, guess what, he studied photography at school.

Yes I'm one of these guys in Germany. Completely free. I went there after school for three years and got a diploma by the state. It is a dual teaching. The country invest for their youngsters. Now, that we've got so many young refugees they can do the same. For free.

Nick932: Last week I wanted to go purchase an A7RII or possible the RX1R MKII. To my suprise, the Sony online store is CLOSED and seems that they have closed many retail stores. Either, camera has been hard to find in a store.

I just wonder how sound the SONY business is.

You had Sony online stores? Interesting.

In reply to:

William Krusche: There used to be a time when we had to buy expensive magazines to keep up with the newest reviews. Now these reviews are free on sites like Dpreview. If Dpreview does indeed receive some extra 'advertising money' for posting articles like this one, then so they should. If amateurs like me don't need to go out and pay for overpriced magazines any more which were, by the way jam-packed with advertising, then you won't hear me complain.

You still read printed articles? It's to me like someone say he still shoots film on a Rolleiflex. I stopped reading printed media in 2008.

In reply to:

RPJG: Given the number of idiotic comments here (and on most DPR articles), it would be great if you had a comment rating system (like Ars Technica, for example) where comments can be voted down as well as up, and are automatically hidden if enough people downvote them.

I would axe the comments completely.

In reply to:

PanchoVilla: A better comparison is how the D750 and D810 just dominate both these wannabe DSLRs and their overpriced Zeiss lenses. Get either Nikon DSLR bodies and your choice of Nikon glass (or awesome value Sigma Art lenses) and call it a day. Try again Sony!

I use a Nikon, a Canon and I use Sony. Where's your problem? And I don't own any Zeiss glass.

In reply to:

PanoMax: Considering this camera is approaching medium format performance in terms of resolution it would be interesting to compare it to a Phase One or Alpa or Hasselblad or even Pentax 645. At the extreme, a Seitz Roundshot

In reply to:

Absolutic: I sold my a7rii after 11 months of ownership. The main problems for me were its poor af system for my needs. Eye af is very good but not for faster moving targets. I have a very fast 4 year old. A7r2 routinely misses shots of him. I've had a7, a7r, a7ii before a7r2. A7r2 is the best of the bunch but simply is outgunned by any medium to high end dslr for my purposes. My d750 makes shooting of my child running (he always runs, never sits still) effortless. A7r2 is simply not in the same league. Maybe next generation will get close as a6300 is certainly close. Another problems with a7r2 is slow start up time and as article points very slow to check your images. Battery dies as you are looking at the display without doing much and I had the camera in airplane mode most of the time. Lenses are large heavy and expensive and on average more expensive than comparable Nikon lenses, with no size benefit. They are great lenses and camera produces Great images of still and slowly moving targets. 4K video quality is sublime. The face recognition works decent but not as fast as Panasonic m43 system face recognition which is in another league (in single af mode). That's my honest take after 11 months and 10k images on a7r2. I know several other friends who are parents of young kids who sold a7r2. Wrong camera for us I guess

My A7RII earns me good money, but so does my D800E and 1DX. It was a good buy for me. I like the A7RII, especially for videos. The menue is a mess, but the rest is really good. I really don't know why you had problems to track a child. I track airplanes and flying little birds with the Sony and a mounted third party Sigma 70-200. Easy.

In reply to:

stromaroma: Great article but that last statement "We'd certainly recommend the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II for landscape photography"????? I wouldn't use either of these for landscape photography... unless of course one was magically in my hands when I wanted to take a photo, which would never happen because I doubt I'd ever touch one. There are much more practical / affordable alternatives for landscapes that would perform equally well if not better.

Really? You guys are so funny to tell others how they have to use their cams. I use these flagships for whatever I want and I don't ask someone for their opinion.

In reply to:

GatanoII: Interesting and informative video and this makes me think:

In this scenario (I must repeat , _in_this_scenario_) it's evident that the direct competitor Nikon D5 should bite the dust , no usable smooth video AF for rapid moving subjects , way slower 4K frame rate for applying slow motion (same separation that exist from usable and useless), "slower" 12fps vs 14fps for getting more decisive moments and far less workable dynamic range for recovering shadows in high contrasty scenes (this is odd and new to Nikon vs Canon) ... and the Canon AF proved, obviously, to be up to the tasks, maybe Nikon could have an easier way to set up to be up to the different tasks, but not enough to separate them, while the pluses from the Canon 1DxII can make a real difference.

So the only think that puzzles me is why DPR did give the same points to the both cameras, since I see substantial advantages/disadvantages where it makes a difference to easily claim a winner.

I should sell Alu-Hats (tin-foil). I would be rich...

PanchoVilla: Poor Canon and Nikon, they're battling it out for scraps while Sony takes the bulk of the market. It's sad seeing these once great companies slowly go down the path of extinction!

A classic Trollpost.

In reply to:

Bart2016: If you are shooting sports get a Nikon or Canon compared here. IF you have existing Canon or Nikon lenses buy a matching camera body. You don't need these cameras to shoot landscapes, or portraits or even weddings since the selling point is mostly high frame rates.
If you shoot video alot a dedicated video camcorder is 100 times better than a still camera like this that happens to shoot video. The form factor alone for a video camcorder makes it better. Sensor size does not matter and if you were shooting hollywood movies that is a whole different class a film/video camera for what is used for major multi-million dollar budgets
Nothing here overtly blows away the Canon 5D or Nikon D810 or D750 unless you shoot sports or fast action, call it any Olympic sport to Pro sports like baseball, football etc.
The D5 and Canon 1D is very specialized kind of body looking at these comparisons

"You don't need these cameras to shoot landscapes, or portraits or even weddings since the selling point is mostly high frame rates. "

But I do!

"If you shoot video alot a dedicated video camcorder is 100 times better than a still camera like this that happens to shoot video. "

But I do

And now?
