Robert Zanatta: There are benchmarks that show a couple functions, such as exporting images, have noticeably improved performance on multiple core machines. So processors with a lot of cores showed the best improvement.

For other functions, such as 1:1 preview generation, single core performance was the determining factor. The Intel 8700K was pretty much the fastest of all the high end processors tested.

i7 8700k is still the best choice now and before 7.2. i9 is too expensive just for LR, and Ryzen is not well supported.

$12,800 sounds like a bargain

ecka84: I wonder when will that knobby fashion fade away. Why don't they put an LCD on the top instead? It's not as bad as Fuji though :). Looks nice and doesn't cost $2000 :).

Looks? Is that some sort of mft excuse for using an outdated noisy sensor? LOL

I didn't buy the P10 just for the camera, but for the screen, long battery life, cpu, excellent audio output, good GPS etc. This mate 10 pro is even better. The Kirin 970 is a fast cpu too :)

Cool, a gold awarded camera that is not so good for still photography. That's a first

princecody: Olympus EM1 M2 is better FF camera in high res mode :)

A FF camera that can only be used on the tripod? That's the worst FF camera ever! LOL

I'm waiting for DPR's hands on reviews on MILF, given the popularity here

DFPanno: All great cameras.

That said I am all in with EVFs and the associated technology.

Hope the big boys build compelling MILF cameras.

As a Sony shooter I am hoping that they would soften Sony pricing.

What does MILF have anyhing to do with cameras?

jackgreen: Interesting, how well it will scale. Could AMD Ryzen 1800x or Threadripper could be a great cost-effective idea?

I think that testing the 7.2 with two cores did not prove much.

I believe that Puget Systems, my #1 source of LR performance, will have a lot of testing quite soon.

We still don't know whether LR 7.2 benefits more from multi-cores as opposed to higher clock speed. If the latter, i7 8700k is still the best choice.

We should start building the $6K battle station then

canon should've put a 28/2 or 35/2 equiv. lens instead of such a slow zoom...

OliverGlass: You look out your window and you see the happy lad who's testing this thing for street photography. Then a cop car enters the frame.

I think even if the cop is your buddy, he will shoot you first before asking you to put it down LOL

Just carry this through the security check at the airport. Should be very interesting to watch

Scott Pickering: I don't see why Canon is number one, other then marketing. It is the least innovative of the three companies (Canon, Nikon, Sony) and is using more old technology in their cameras then the other 2. They especially are lacking in their sensor technology. Yet Canon hold the number 1 spot. I used to be a Canon guy, but switched long ago when they couldn't keep up.

Canon's image quality is still ok, far from bad - hence more than enough for most - not you perhaps.

kewlguy: I have the P10 plus and bought a Mate 10 Pro for my son. Can't see myself buying Samsung anymore. The Huaweis are that good :)

I'm considering to replace my P10+ but I can't decide between Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro yet. For sure, the CPU is simply excellent, the Oreo is stable and both Mate 10/Pro have good screens with good color accuracy. Build quality has always been good, my daughter has been using the P9 plus since its first release in 2016.

emersonik: DPReview is the new PetaPixel.

Actually, DPR often posted the same news much later than PP.
