DonGordon: I'm not even getting 400 pics on single battery charge.

Do you have the 1Dx Mk II ? Your gear list said no.

In reply to:

allkar: Same total point score as 1d Mark IV from 2010.
Worse than EOS in RAW quality, features etc.
I miss 1dx and 1dx Mark II test for fair comparison

This is based on the comparison by dp and dp rating only.
I can't judge what is better because I do not know the D5.
I leave judgment to specialists - see bar chart.
I've used the 1Dx Mk I for few few weeks and I'm surprised that the dp allows a comparison of D5 with the older 1D Mk IV model only.
According to this comparison, D5 is better in low ISO, perhaps in the viewfinder and rating and - it is very subjective assessment of dp - in handling.
For me is ergonmic & handling by Canon better as by Nikon - no wonder I'm Canon user :-)
I have never seen any Nikon camera, which would be better as a Canon (it's very subjective too).
Handling is always a personal habit.

mikeodial: By one "really independent" scoring site the sensor on the D5 is tops.

You've got me wrong. I don't spoke about switch brands anytime. Also I consider it false. The camera is not a first thing. Important is a system where you were working. I've worked with 1Dx Mk I a short time (I don't own it) and I can say - first class. I'm just surprised that there is no 1Dx Mk II test, that's all.

@Deliverator
go to D500 Conclusion & Samples, switch Compare mode on, choose 1d Mk IV, look a moment an think about...
1d Mk IV was announced Oct 2009. There are over 6 years of technical development between. A new sensor generation, new technologies.
That is the reason why I want to have a comparison - D500 vs 1Dx Mk II and not old flagship 1d Mk IV

Yes it is. No question, but the sensor is not the camera, it's part of the camera.
Important, but still only the part.
I want to see a direct comparison between D5 and 1dx Mark II

"There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony ..."
This is really sad.
What a pity!

Paul Ennis: As a Canon user, I was glad to see them without any wins. Hopefully it will be a(nother) wakeup call that the company is being left behind. Hats off to Sony, they do appear to be hungry. The DP Review interview with the Canon executive a few months back was one of the most complacent statements I've ever heard from someone representing a technology based company. Will someone please sound the alarm at Canon HQ?

No, but for the optic, they have...

allkar: What does this poll? Unfortunately nothing!
I see 9 products, not all belong to the best

You have free choice, provided you choose what we want.

Oh yes indeed, that would be something :)
Only simultaneous general overview, may be the right

Sorry, but it should be possible to select from all new products of 2014,
not only from the pre-selected. This is not representative.
The trend is targeted

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (1318 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dave Oddie: Seems to me this camera is all about the pro level tank-like build quality, fast AF and the 10fps.

Very useful for a pro sports photographer with the crop sensor giving more reach but outside that market it is pretty disappointing. Not many amateurs need the tank-like build and even my "old" A77 is faster at 12fps.

If you are a typical amateur who shoots a variety of subjects it doesn't seem compelling at all due to the sensor limitations, especially given the price.

Canon cameras always handle really well with well thought out ergonomics but this and tank like build are not enough anymore.

You're absolutely right.
Not everyone has to drive a Ferrari.
The suspension is too hard, the engine is too nervous.

In reply to:

Peter Keene: dpreview.com built its reputation for comprehensive, honest reviews when it was a small, almost one-man, shop based in the UK. Since moving to the US a few years back and greatly expanding it's staff I'm afraid it has become less and less credible. Interested in a small brand point and shoot? They've got it covered. Interested in a camera from one of the two pro systems? Go elsewhere.

The combination of dpreview and DxO (which is for me not really objective), is another negative point here. Sad

In reply to:

DigitalWalnut: No Sigma 120-300mm Sport?

The announcement/release dates are not important for me. One first class lens can stay at top for longer time, not only one year. This mix of different lenses types for different systems is not realy succesfful idea.

On article Coming soon: Lens Reviews to return to dpreview.com (272 comments in total)

I think, cooperation with DXO is a step back for this page.
DXO's reviews of the optics, (above all ranking) are often misleading for the user and potential buyers.
There are better alternatives on the market.
