In reply to:

kobakokh: to be honest i saw this video and i think Canon 6D2 is very bad camera for landscape photography, especially in that contrast scenes. Very small DR, you can see at this video very easy. If owner will use, for example Nikon D850 (or D810), Pentax K-1 (its even cheaper then this plastic Canon 6D2), he will understand what is a really good camera for landscape photography. Ooh, forgotten, also Sony 7R2 or 7R3 is also great camera for it. Also, much better to use some wide fix lenses, for example, Zeiss 25mm, Sigma 50mm Art, i mean the lenses with very low chromatic aberrations which is very important for post processing.

Yeah I think according to Sony fanboys and probably Rishi, the 6DII has 1-2EV of DR, impossible to take any good photos in any light.

Is this article saying the A7RIII doesn't offer a single AF point option or small cluster for tracking. I can't believe that at all, if true utterly retarded.

DPReview007: Hello, Canon, you there?? Helllllo??? Hellllllo???

5D4 can hold it's own against both these two despite the nay sayers. Anybody that claims any DSLR or mirrorless is a dud these days has rocks in their heads.

xPhoenix: I'd seriously consider switching to mirrorless, as it does seem to be the way of the future, but I shoot a lot of wildlife, and a DSLR still seems the better choice for that.

Currently A9 users are stuck using a 100-400 + 2x TC, and a 400 f/2.8 is not what they need. When the A9 was released so should have a 500 and 600 f/4 as well as 300 and 400 f/2.8 and a 150-600. Not much use using adapted glass when you can't get the high fps and all the best features of the AF.

thx1138: I’ve been using my own in-built neural network to do such things for at least 20 years.

In the future I won’t have to leave the house, I’ll send out my sentient drone loaded with a 1GP camera and in-built 14-400 f/2.8 lens and let it take all the photos. It will get up at any time and go out in any weather to capture the sweet light. It’ll then upload the photos on the wing, to my AI run house and the images will appear on my 10K screen within seconds of capture. It’ll then post them to flickr using my name of course and people will ooh and aah at what an epically good photographer I am.

Do I take the red or the blue pill?

Veselin Gramatikov: 4/3 are no sense for stills front of current cheaper and better FF/APS-C bodies.
Sorry :)

What the hell is a jpg! Who shoots jpg's on these cameras. In RAW the 7DII is cleaner at ISO 6400, a rather ordinary 3.5 year old sensor. We have other people crapping on about G9 being better than D810 and D750, just hilarious. It's noticeably behind APS-C let alone FF.

Fuji cheats, with their overstated ISO by 2/3rd stop.

In reply to:

eno2: Once again, Dpreview is trying a "maneuver" to make some cameras look noisier than they actually are (in this case the G9), for others to look better (like the Nikon D500). :)

Let's start looking at ISO 6400 in good vs low light. It's funny how the low light looks better, isn't it? And that's because Dpreview underexposed the good light image than compensated for it in ACR (the results is a nosier image). This "maneuver" can also be spot when comparing the JPG exposure vs the RAW exposure (they are different).

Why bother complaining, they are still using way too contrasty profile for Canon 5DsR 2 years after release that crush blacks and under expose it 1/3rd stop compared to competition, Why they are slavishly using the worst RAW converter on the market now is beyond belief.

32"is a ridiculous size for a QHD resolution, the pixel pitch is too large. 27" is perfect at this resolution and you still have a largish ~0.23mm pixel pitch vs 0.18mm in a 4K 32" monitor. You cannot judge critical sharpness on a large pixel pitch monitor with today's high res files. Been there and done that thinking a 1920 x 1200 24" monitor would be good for photo processing way back, but sold it after 6 months.

Yeah you'd know all about that trolltran88, the poster boy for spec sniffing junkies. Are you all butt hurt a few Canon made the list, poor didums.

In reply to:

thx1138: If Samyang release a native FE version of the 14 f/2.4 preferably with AF, but even without, that would be my choice.

Not so much with mirrorless where you can get a magnified view in the EVF, but with DSLR' I'd rather have it than not because I don't just use it for astro work, but yes DOF is so large it's not critical.

One thing that will be hair thin after the purchase is your wallet. Leica lenses sure do look sweet though.

Ignore trolltran88, goes in every thread with a dozen moronic posts, probably just uses an iPhone for his meaurebating and talks smack about cameras he's never even seen let alone touched.
