On article Sony a7S III initial review (1620 comments in total)

Interesting comparison with R5.

R5 overheats, but its oversampled 4K is sharper. Sony sharper at 120 fps. Canon IBIS is better.

Truebar: All I’m interested from Canon is dynamic range, for me personally at least. If again is going to be almost there, forget about it.

@Truebar, 1DX III scored 14.5 at DXO. With the same sensor, R6 should be the same. R5 should higher because of the higher pixel count, around 15. That is as good as or better than any current FF sensor DR.

aftab: The grain/noise pattern is very fine in R5, then Z7, then A7RIII, then A7RIV, worst in S1R.
Splitting hair of course. :)

PS, if we throw in 5DsR, it is the worst.

Without changing the scene check noise on two white stripes on two sides in compo mode at ISO 3200, 6400 and 12800. R5 has less noise than both A7RIII and IV. As I said, we are splitting hair. In real life, all should produce similar results except A7RIV has a clear resolution advantage and R5 has moire advantage.

Jack Pangolin: May I ask how did you manage to read R5 RAW files ?

DPR always gets prerelease ACR from Adobe.

I know some prefer a flip-out LCD. But some also prefer tilting.
In any case, a winner.

snapa: Great specs on paper, do not equate to great pictures. Once all those high tech specs are proved to actually work and create great pictures, I will (at that time) be impressed.
Until then, it's just a bunch of marketing BS to keep people from jumping ship to other much better existing cameras from other manufacturers.
BTW, this all looks and sounds like just another rumor article with no actual specs or prices. The most interesting thing is how many click it got :/

Great pictures depend on the photographer, but some specs like 12 FPS or IBIS can help. They are not just BS on paper.

Seems like Canon did everything right with R5. Now they will have to price it right. Irrespective of the specs anything beyond 4000/- will be too much for many potential customers. 3500/- to 3700/- seems reasonable to me (not for me personally).

The camera isn't announced yet, it's just a development announcement. Yet there is so much excitement and so much freaking out. Wonder, which side will be happier in few months, 'the excited group' or the 'freaked-out group'?

for me, the most important question is how is the EVF lag? Is it acceptable? Barely noticeable?
I love my EOS R except for the lag. If R5 is not significantly better I will wait and use my DSLR for fast action shots. I don't care about the rest of the specs. I am sure many are in the same situation.

Well, some (So-y and Olymp-s fans) here said Canon can't do IBIS because it takes years to develop and perfect. Now they are saying So-y will be releasing this or that soon and R5 will be nothing.
It's okay fanboys. We understand. :)

In reply to:

Absolutic: Question for Dpreview editors:
1) Can you clarify with Canon if 12/20fps is with continuous af, or just continuous shooting with fixed af at first shot;
2) Can you clarify with Canon if 12/20fps with full live view, or you need to lower the fps to avoid delayed live view:

Reading the press release it appears that at least 12 FPS is with AF.
Maybe 20 FPS too.

1Dx4me: i find it that this camera is catering to video guys rather than photogs! that doesn't sound good. people can go out and buy dedicated 8K video cameras at great prices, why they can't leave us alone? what a disappointment.

1DX III is heavy with video features. But it is still a camera mainly for photogs. The same will be the case here.

aftab: Of course, we wanted to know more. From the released information we can make few guesses.
New sensor with high-speed readout. This is probably a new line of sensors. IQ should be excellent.
8K video. So, 40 mp-ish at least. Also, 4K should be really good with excellent video capabilities.
12 FPS mechanical to make professional action photographers happy. So, it must be with AF.
Price? Most will be happy if it is priced similarly to 5D series bodies.
Although a lot is not known, from released information and reading between the lines, this should be a very exciting camera.

Yeah, everybody is debating about the price. Looking at the specs some are saying that it would 4000 at least. On the other hand, competition is tough, Canon is late to the game and this appears to be 5D series equivalent; the price may surprise us.

Any mention of buffer?

DPR already stated that they don't have the camera and know nothing about it. So, DPR publishing the rumor doesn’t give it any additional credibility.

On article Tamron SP 35mm F1.4 sample gallery (DPReview TV) (44 comments in total)

CA seems to be very well controlled. But the camera JPEG might have removed some by default. Will have a look at the RAW files.

CA probably going to be problematic, at least wide open.
