On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (708 comments in total)

I know this review is more than a year old. But I just bought the 5DS-R. The last photo in the conclusion talking about noise and dynamic range is shot at f22! Are you kidding me! The diffraction is horrible and even more for such a big sensor. Was there an attempt to make this camera look bad??

What is the story with this caveat?

"An SDXC memory card with a Class 10 or higher speed rating is required for XAVC S recording."

So you need >64GB extended FAT format? Why? What does that have to do with it? I think they mean you need a UHS-I Class 3 card like the new ones from Kingston that are targeted at 4K video. But they come in 16 & 32GB SDHC as well as 64GB SDXC.

Take note Canon. You put out the same camera over and over again with a different name and no one can tell the difference between it and the previous model.

Sony keeps telling us that it is just an updated version of the existing model and everyone can instantly tell how much it has actually improved even though the name hasn't.

Canon and Nikon have nothing that can directly compete with this camera. And no the G1 X MII doesn't compete with it. It's lens is not fast enough. It is too big. And it sensor size really isn't that much bigger.

iPhoto auto exposure correction on iPad w/ Retina display is pure magic and will eliminate those blah color issues. Tried it on that Mk3 portrait of the model with gray sweater and printed. Excellent results vs. original. The Mk3 does not do any worse than my 6D. They all have their trying moments. But iPhoto is another story. It is supernatural. Don't laugh!

Andy_Elliott: I have been in and around cameras for nigh on 30 years now. My career in film & TV has resulted directly from my interest photographic pictures and the majesty of the engineering involved in the cameras & lenses and artists that capture them. I've been lucky enough to use pretty much every sort of camera going, from point-and-shoot to full-frame models from Canon, Nikon & Leica & beyond - and for differing requirements. But when all is said and done and despite its flaws, as an all-rounder, I have to say that in terms of cost, quality, weight, size, speed and the fact that the thing is there with you in the first place to take the damn picture... and most especially and simply in the quality of the output, as in what a given picture looks like when you look it on a given screen,  after having simply pressed the shutter release in say, programme mode, then as far as I'm concerned, the Sony RX100 is the best camera currently made, bar none. Just my ha'penth worth.

Thank you for summing up with crystal clarity what a lot of us feel.
