Mikael Risedal: congratulation Canon, it took you about 8 years to discover/ and fix the read out noise from your sensors , and you are not even close to Sony

Like someone said in the other comment section; Sony runs circles while Canon 5D4s are busy taking photos...

KW Phua: I think if Canon remove the AA filter, the detail and noise will be improved.

Without AA filter, the detail level increases with higher overall sharpness which lead to less sharpening done in post which means less noise being sharpened too. Technically we could use some masking to avoid sharpened noise but not without some weird artifacts. So removing AA filter on a high MP sensor is a good idea. Leica omitted the AA filter already with the 18MP M9 (crazy moire I know, but this is 30MP).

kewlguy: Looks good, despite what people said about Canon being late or whatever, the high ISO looks nice, even iso25K is good. Pixel sharpness isn't the highest due to AA filter but not bad either. I think this camera strikes a nice balance in features, performance and price.

Dansclic, everything is expensive in Europe. What do you expect?

I would love to mount my Sigma 24-35 Art and 100-400 II on this new bad boy!

photog4u: DPR: Off topic but I couldn't help notice that the A7R II needs an update in your STS. Kindly re-shoot the A7R II Studio Test Scene with either the Sony 85mm 1.4 G or the new Sony/Zeiss 50mm 1.4 ZA. Although still a great lens, the 55 1.8 has become outclassed by its brethren.

It only means, Sony needs to use the super high tech pro-caliber high dollar new lens with the transformers-like naming and unimaginably large girth (read G Master 85/1.4) to (slightly) surpass Canon's 20 yo 85mm lens. And yes, the 85 at 5.6 is just excellent ;)

Must be Nikon, since the lenses are generally less sharp....

Here's the sensor!

$599 must be a good reason for 12bit raw...

TyphoonTW: But does it overheat during 4k video? I mean, only top cameras overheat while recording 4k video, if the 5DmkIV doesn't then it means it's stone-age trash.

/s

No other camera manufacturer could copy the extra heat feature. That is patented by Sony.

tkbslc: 136mm f1.8 equivalent on the Hasselblad X1D. Yawn.

The nikkor is a lens for anyone who is not as rich and professional as you.

Frank_BR: "The final image was made up of approximately. 700 hi-res images and ended up at 53 billion pixels in size."
------------------------------------------------------

The Nikon D810 is a 36 Mpixel camera, so 700 images stitched together produce a final image of about 25, not 53 billion pixels! Some detail is missing in this story...

Photoshop does resize.

Why should people buy either one and not A6300 which is $600 or $700 cheaper

In reply to:

kalpeshmodi: Its disappointing to see that reviewer's at DPREVIEW were unable to maintain focus on person riding bike and resulting in blurry out-of-focus pics, There are plenty of pictures on Pentax forum from actual K-1 owners here at DPREVIEW getting excellent results shooting variety of action sports.
It is easy to blame on equipment than honning skill to use the equipment with proper skill set.

well Simon, Pentax is not the only brand I have so nothing about fanboyism. The AF is not poor, that's the point. Maybe the reviewers forgot to see through the VF?

OMG. Even with poor AF my K-1 consistently gives me sharp photos with the DFA 28-105, FA 43, and DA 300. I wonder how sharper it would be if the AF is accurate!!!

Just a side note, I've been shooting aviation photos with my Canons as well and so far I'm not seeing any AF inaccuracies. Of course tracking an aircraft is much easier than bicycle, but it is nowhere near as poor IMO...

In reply to:

FantasticMrFox: It saddens me to see a brand as old and thoroughly accomplished as Leica jumping onto a bandwagon driven by offering meaningless gadgets for the rich that promote style over functionality. They used to offer the exceptional for a large amount of money, now they are adding the pointless for even more money ...

The buyers in that segment are basically screaming at the luxury brands to take away their money. Leica is just exploiting that - without even introducing new tech. Any company would want to do that.
