Things are going to be slow until the 5d mk iv comes out, so let's speed things up a bit by talking about The fastest man on earth.
Imagine waiting for the mirrorless.

On article Canon EOS-1D X Mark II: What you need to know (143 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alexis D: Are we going to get a "What you need to know" article after every review of a camera by DPReview from now on?

Why is such info not included in the review itself? Already we have several articles for the same camera besides the main review, like Hands-On, Field Test, Real World Sample, and now another one?

Carey, it's got to be frustrating for the DPR crew. Damned if you do damned if you don't.

Nobby2016: why don´t you let a working professional, someone who has a real clue, write such articles?

get a canon pro sports photographer to write about his experience with the 1 DX II.... get a nikon pro sports photographer to write an article about the D5.

i doubt that you guys at DPreview, sitting at your desk most of the time, have as much experience with the cameras as they have.

Greg, I agree with you as well, also photojournalists on the street and in war zones, who risk life and limb to bring us the news we read.

Yes, especially about Canon cameras, until (or if ever) they release their first real mirrorrless. :P

Greg VDB, that's not really photography, that's spray and pray technique used by sport shooters.

An effort short and a minute late. Both Canon and Dpreview with their camera and review respectively. Tell us something we don't already know. :P

Chris Yates: I can enjoy watching a Kurosawa classic on VHS tape just fine. Although I appreciate better technology, what we need in better content and entertainment and a better society. Instead with 4K or 8K or 946 (or whatever the next K is) all we're going to get to watch nowadays is bloodshed in vivid detail.

Graybalanced, I was simply making conversation. of course VHS is not perfect today, but those were still great movies to watch on VHS, with a bunch of photojournalism friends interested in photography back when I was in college in 1980s. :)

I loved my Mavicas both my FD-91 and my CD-1000. Seriously retro and like it or not, bold, industrial (albeit plasticky) in-your-face styling. Still have them.

Maybe after their unscrupulous practices and judgement they'll be known as Ghetto Images.

And I thought it was my lucky day when she winked at me. ;)
Now I understand she's got a picture of me slobbering all over myself.

$6K. Is that all? I think I'll get two, one as main and one as backup.
In all seriousness, they're "beautiful looking" lenses, but too pricey for zooms and I prefer primes.
I love my old Mamiya 645 prime glass for a fraction of the price.

If I were him, I'd change the statement from "probably" to "ABSOLUTELY". Alas I'm not him.

A photograph of Vlad Putin surfing would have brought more life to these pictures.
