temama: Nikon?! I'm really sorry for you. I'm a Sony user.

DuxX... really? and you came all the way here to say it?

munro harrap: At least its battery life like the d810 nikon is around 4x what a Sony A7r or Nex battery can manage and it is weatherproof . A Sony battery takes double the time in-camera the 810 nikon does in-charger, or the Canon and the pro machines do a 1000 plus shots per charge not 300 plus so as we chuckle at the suckera who waste their savings their hardearned cash on a machine that dies after an hour or so we should perhaps help them avoid such error.

some comments don't deserve more, it's classic trolling, is battery grip news for such a "pro"? or usb bank? c'mon.
I am a fanboy of technology and progress and if it means Sony now, so be it. Some come here to bash everything they don't have or like, I try to make them open their eyes wider...

Battery grip... or
usb booster...
or stop doing time lapses and start some serious photography.

fzrTom: So now the question is : how gold will be its gold award :D

"Earth-shattering"... + Richter Scale...
or
105% Gold
who said gold cannot be even more golden, i.e. like retirement policy from NYLife, so much gold... until you want to cash them

Gesture: Sample galleries. Why are the images so unimpressive from multi-thousand dollar cameras/

If people make pictures do we need cameras?

fatdeeman: Seems like an excellent all round camera and it seems like Nikon have the best AF out of all DSLRs at the moment. Canon need to up their object tracking game if they want to keep up with Nikon and the better mirrorless offerings.

Focus peaking didn't make the budget. Also, they have to keep something up their sleeve for upcoming D550 @$2.9k. Or you think they left the only copy of plans on the cafeteria table...

endofoto: This is a very good camera for birding and sports. However this high ISO lie still goes on, if you are not a paparazzi, beyond ISO 1600 image quality is not acceptable for art.

It could be, if it's shutter didn't scare them off.

Electricturd: The chart comparing the 3 different cameras states that the D7200 is Carbon Composite only. Thats wrong, its external body has the same materials as the D500 (Mag top and back, Carbon front)

Better. There's a rumor there's more plastic in plastic. Details coming out soon.

endofoto: Nikon D7200 is much better than both Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX MII, no need to upgrade to full frame.

Real shame, what a waste... D5=d7200 + a7RII and a used Corolla.

badbob42mk1: and the pros will be using the Nikons and Canons, and making money and making a living, whilst peeps on here, wondering if its even possible to take a picture with these cameras

Real man who loves cars drives a tank, OK? and nothing less (well, sometimes a Kenmore truck), like Arnold, you pusxies.

Ilvez: Lets make it clear that "peers" are D5 and DxII, rest of the lineup would simply fall apart in the dimly lit sports event, or in rough counditions.

Even though the Nikon and Sony have been praised for their advances in the sensor area, then Canon must be doing something right when large part of the professionals in demanding conditions are shooting with it. That is all I need to know for now.

As today the professionals market also demands good video capabilities, including the ability to use autofocus, then D5 has a lot of work to do.

And the answer is: they have plenty of Canon/Nikon glass they are stuck with. Who's gonna buy them off when Sony makes their D5/1DxII equivalent at half the cost (how costly it is to make a heavier housing? or better menus, or bigger battery... really, think about it). This is all within a reach, easily. You are not getting more for your money because big boys don't want you to, not that they can't do it, it is about not self-cannibalizing other products on the market. "Can't be done for less" times are over. Sony, Pentax even Samsung proved it. This is bet Canon/Nikon is making, that you WILL stick with their glass because the switch is too costly. Sony knows that... that's why they don't go after D1X, D4/5 market... yet! They much prefer selling container loads of a7's then several thousands of D1X/D5 equivalents, but it may come to that...
Key is to build up client base that can support such switch/move. Nothing more then that. Technology-wise it's easy. Market has to support that.

Jeffa4444: Images are created using a camera and a lens so simply making an observation about the camera is meaningless. Sony are only starting to catch-up on lenses with good reviews for its G Master lenses but Canon has way more optics that are of a higher calibre. The 1D X MKII has a very specific market unlike the Sony A7r MKII (the A7S MKII is specific) which is a general camera and more aimed at 5D MKIII users. Sony battery issues are well documented and its ergonomics are sometimes wanting all these affect real world useage not lab rat useage. The Canon 1D X MKII like the 5DS /r and 5D MKIII has excellent subject tracking AF and will almost certainly be the pro choice along with the Nikon D5.

That may be true unless Sony comes up with a nipple focus lock and, most importantly, tracking.

D Gold: Just an observation...

Set it to raw, load the D500 in the next window. The two cameras look identical noise-wise as you go up the iso scale. Then the D500 gets better above 102400 .

And D500 has a powerful AF that probably yields more in-focus frames.

So a 3 fps advantage for $4k more over a D500? Looks like this new Canon is mainly attractive to pros with lots of Canon L glass.

Today, faces are not important anymore, boobs are. This is where Sony looses.

elave: I would like to see real world results. Because this high precision tools are almost like industrial equipment. You can appreciate cost benefits only by comparing them in real world. Still from a technical point of view the review is as complete as a lab tests can be.

Exactly, and "real world" does NOT include this stupid studio test. Let's take it to the potato field, or a pig farm.

indusbreed: Bringing A7rII into the equation is fine but was not necessary. D5 is the direct competitor. Might as well throw some Phase one images there as well. A7 R II is no doubt a brilliant tool, but for all intended purposes, its the odd tool out here.

Please do some real world tests as well.

My thought exactly, why bring Sony info the corral fight. 5-6 years ago it was like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Now a7rII is like unnecessarily bringing a nuke. Who needs that?

cirtapfotos: What does God Need with a Star Ship? DP...Huh? Even I am lost on this comparison between Canon and Sony's A7rll.. One is a need for speed sports camera...and the other camera is a studio landscape, portrait. Canon has a low mp to capture speed, and Sony's 42mp is for Dynamic Range. DP ...once again you are 100% behind the times. Please Keep Up.

Flagship to flagship... not a fair comparison. Let's compare pound for pound and dollar for dollar.

Jonathan F/2: Seriously, I think we can stop buying the latest and greatest. I can barely tell the difference between all these modern cameras! They all look good. Sensor tech has plateaued!

You hit the nail on a head. I'm not complacent either. Since sensor talk is over lets finally settle what camera you can run the fastest with, backwards! with 1 shoe on, on a gravel road.

emfor: DPR is rating skintones by taking a photo of a photo illuminated by tungsten or "simulated daylight"?
This is amazing.

DPR is comparing JPEG sharpening radius of a 42MP with a 20MP?
This is outstanding.

BTW, which camera settings have been used when checking sharpening?
AFAIK sharpening is also influenced by Canon picture styles.
Assuming the 1DXii supports them, too, which one was used?

They talk about technology, however superficial technology can be, it is all about doing better next time around. This is a 6000 dollars! camera for Gods sake. Should be 2x better in every department then this ridiculously toyish and ugly Sony a7RII... but is it?

In reply to:

Barry Goyette: Lets be honest DPR...your love affair with the sony a7r-II sensor would fall apart if you would simply pay attention to the lack of detail that comes along with sony's noise reduction. Your constant need to show how pushing an image 4+ stops is the most important camera metric would cease to influence your minions if you acknowledged that the A7r-II shows less detail than the other cameras when pushed using your preferred method of exposure.

Because a review HAS to reinforce what they already know and love (and own) and not bring out some disgusting sensor noise issues that makes them loose their appetite (or throw up...).

emfor: What are the most exciting features to test when a 1D X II makes its way through my door?
Right! AF performance, framerate, speed, handling, reliability, 4k video, 120fps 1080p, ... Do I get every shot? What is the hit rate? And much more ...

So I'm very excited after DPR tests this new monster.
But hey, what is that? Studio tests? Exposure Latitude? ISO Invariance?
|-O

When Sony was lagging badly in studio, no one complained. Today with a7rII... studio is passe. Today... framerate, quick acquisition is the king. Wasn't Sony making 11 fps (world's fastest) few years ago?
