Only 1.2kg? Should have been 1.5kg for the price

Mssimo: Or you can just stack 6 ebay UV filters on any lens. 6 elements in 6 groups. Add more filters for an "enhanced effect." Also works as an ND/flare enhancer. Im working on a new petroleum based product that will protect the front element while giving a nice creamy artistic image. It will come in both tube and jar containers. After a long day of beautiful pictures, it will have a side benefit while you sit in front of you computer and gaze at your creations.

Why spend money on 6 filters? Just grow some fungus and voila .... Leica rendering!

a lot of money for plenty of optical aberrations. Smart.

What DXO and DPR won't tell you; the DXO system went haywire when the score exceeds 100, so gotta keep everything 100. D850 was supposed to be 102.

For the price of the lens, I wouldn't expect blur on the right side of the frame (image #26). Still it's an awesome lens if it's not decentered. I like the rendering better compared to my Canon 100-400 mkii.

JosephScha: Re: "At 150 x 130 x 190mm (WxDxH), the Billingham 72 is the ideal size for premium fixed lens cameras such as the Leica Q, Fujifilm X100 range or Sony DSC-RX1R series, and many small mirrorless system cameras with one standard lens, such as the Fujifilm X-T2, Olympus OMD E-M series, Leica M rangefinders or Canon EOS M kits."
So, no mention of Panasonic. Not ideal for G80, G7, GH5? Is it just me, or is Panasonic the most overlooked camera brand?

They figured, for Panny users, there are more reasonably-priced bags. Maybe Panny users could ask their Oly friends about what bag to use 😉

In reply to:

Swerky: Such articles and videos will only bring more negative comments for this 6D II. And here's one: With its highly amateurish specs like 1/4000 of a second shutter speed, 98% viewfinder coverage and one SD card slot, this camera should have included a built in flash.
The first 6D was built similarly but at least it had a noticeably better sensor than the 5D III. And Canon regretted that.
And I believe this is the first full frame Canon DSLR not to get some sort of medal on DPReview.

Can't imagine myself replacing my 6D with this $$$ garbage.

-Fine, Jake. I hope you won't lose your job.

That's what's called friendly fire.

landscaper1: Such limited editions of cameras are the ultimate expression of wearing a camera as just so much bling. Disgusting.

some prefer a Patek P., some diamond necklace, some....an RF camera

I heard he forgot to load the camera but the picture still came out nice.

In reply to:

Saurat: 'Entry-level' or not, cameras such as this are perfectly good for the majority of photographers - including pros - shooting stationary or slow moving subjects in daylight. Remember that next time you pay two grand for a camera full of features you will ever use.

Very likely too this camera has better DR than 6D2 ;)

Bodhi Dharma Zen: Ok guys, I was waiting for this camera to upgrade from my 80D, I want a full frame, but have absolutely HATED the stupidly low DR from canon cameras for almost ten years now. When I got the 80D I was excited to FINALLY see an improvement on DR over all other canon cameras, I really had good hopes in to them FINALLY getting a nice FF with as much DR as the Sony sensors. Obviously, they care more about not spending money than in to thinking in the consumer. So, fffuck canon.

Which camera do you recommend me if I have canon lenses? Im gravitating towards a Sony, unsure in to which one. Im thinking in spending £2,000.00 or less if possible. THANKS!!!

should be the 5D4, but it's not cheap. If not in a hurry, wait a bit for the new Sony A7iii.

No big deal. The main purpose of a leica is hanging on your neck while walking down the street. Just take photo with the P10.

mario loconte: This test is usefully useless, if you want a cheap camera, here we are, if you want more, you spend more.

But, cheap and good, extreme DR nerd test apart, this is a worthwhile camera.

This camera is neither cheap nor good.
