Well, more skilled togs will breach that two shot mark, some will get zero. It depends. :-P

Well, "the best" sensor of what Canon has, in the lowest class. Will we see something amazing in the next SLR and MILC iterations?

It looks like skinny bony abandoned dog. Technology shrinks stuff, but the mirror is still there. Not a compliment, not a complaint. It´s what it is now. uninteresting times coming?

princecody: So Olympus EM1 Mark II & Panasonic GH5 don't produce professional results 🤔

There are people who shoot entire events, press and exhibitions with an iPhone, and then hang large images for viewing in galleries, museum, or whatever. It seems that even 1/3” sensor with fixed lens can do the job.
You can even pick a brush instead, and you still do some kind of (maybe even well payed) job, which is acceptable for your customer base. You´re viewing it from absolutely different angle, and it seems I would just not be your customer. It has nothing to do with your skill or how good are you. I would need different outcome for my money, with different tools, which you don´t have at a time of my “task quotation request”.

Chris: It does make sense – Good photographer can build nice portfolio even with 1” sensor camera, or even smaller.
You eventually get nice picture. But it doesn´t say anything about average performance, reliability, nothing about hard situations outcome, etc.

Yes, I would do some basic quick gear check. Nothing excessive. The problem is, that output of the most FF setups at f/2.8 is much better than output of MFT at f/1.2. On many MFT cameras ISO200 is minimum, and there is no Equivalent setting of MFT for FF camera set at base ISO speed. Actually, FF equivalent of base ISO speed of MFT is 400, and that is with less resolution too. Then it only goes down, down, down, when light is not ideal.

Then look: Canon 50mm f/1.8 is equivalent of 25mm f/0.9 on MFT. It´s for peanuts at Canon. How can MFT compete with this??? It´s not even funny guys…

QuarterToDoom

I have this in mind too. Not naive.
1) Many divorces are done by regular trouble makers. it´s not really 50% for everybody. That is pure statistical number. If we look into sum of divorces per human as ONE human divorced, it´s rather like 20%?
2) Anyway It´s propably once in a life time per pair. They don´t get married again, but they have their once in a life with next partner AGAIN, right? :-D
Almost every wedding is unique and once in a life time. I would not say "again"?

That´s prety natural. You don´t show the stuff where you didn´t make it, scrap percentage, or how many ruined events you have, do you? :-)
I do. And then I jump onto it and solve the problem I might encounter. Some of these even in advance, to not let these happen. That´s the difference of commited entity. We will never understand to each other. I believe our discussion is not constructive really.

It´s lovely, It has unseen features, when I´m heading for my next camera purchase, I look back into MFT constantly, because it gives some extras for my usage. It can be the best tool for certain jobs. Hands down. But not for payed pros at "once in life" event. That´s not a tool for "once in a life".

At the end of the day, it´s you Phile, who might not get hired. You cannot ruin my day and hurt my feelings by calling me such and such. But That´s exactly how many "inferior gear people" react to potential customer, who is not satisfied. You chose yourself for being object of fun.

You still don´t get it - I believe you can do your job in 95% circumstances, and you can somehow compensate by your skill and patience, commitment at the place. But I´ve seen enaugh of fails due to inferior gear, and am not willing to take the risk. Low light MFT performance is poorer compared to larger formats, and I don´t care tiny bit how bad you call me for that fact.
Anyway good luck. You obviously have your place, and feel happy in it. Just don´t get out of it and bother dead serious (never good enaugh result) people.

No, while $XXXXXX tool has a chance to be professional, the $XX toole doesn´t have the chance. Then you need to look into it, and asses, if it is the right tool for the job. Of course, price is not ALONE.

The problem is, it does - eventually. When someone uses MFT for wedding, he is simply not commited and professionaly polite enaugh, putting the customer in great risk, due to the general camera performance.

I can repair electronics with $10 soldering iron , $2 tweezers and some screwdriver and handtool $50 set too!
But guess what I use in my job? $XXXXXX tools. You know why? Because in the unlikely event when things go down, it´s gonna hold you up, giving you that 10-20% more performance and precision in critical situation, when it can decide if you do your thing, or fail miserably, ruining expensive stuff too.
So if they pay me well enaugh, I give back, proffesional work in both good circumstances and bad circumstances.
MFT wedding shooters are milkers in my angle of view, And I would tell MFT wedding tog on my wedding to get lost in a second I saw him.

rajdude: ok , first things first....I am really, Really, REALLY worried about this problem "Shutter button lacks responsiveness". Wait a minute........is this a cellphone or what? Shutter button is not responsive in a THOUSAND dollar camera? WHAT the @#$@#$ ??

DPreview...are you 100% sure? Maybe your review unit was bad?

I request you to double - check and please clarify this problem you are reporting....because I do not see any other reviewer complaining about this problem. To me, this problem would be VERY obvious to anyone reviewing this camera.

Wow. Just wow. I was in the "decisions period" before my purchase of new camera. Looking at 80D, 6D and M5. Seems I'm done here. This "performance" in $1000 2016-17 camera is nuts. You know what Canon? Go click yourself. No money for ya. Buing mint 80D or 6D.
Bleh, that bitter taste in my mouth...

Dave Seeley: Back and forth and back and forth.... Just ordered the M5 w 14-45mm lens kit.

Can anyone tell me how the 15-45 compares to the 18-55 that came with the M?

Roger at Lens Rentals said good things about the 18-55 sharpness, but said tons of barrel distortion... WISH they made some solid fast lenses for M. I have the 22mm and like it.

I have both, and while I appreciate size of the 15-45, I prefer 18-55. Sharper, longer, metal parts and bayonet...

In reply to:

Imagine: Thanks for the samples, but if you are to give the disclaimer on using a different lens, why not lets us know which that lens was?
Why not use the same EF lens you use with the APS-C Canon DSLRs if consistency is important?

If they used the lens average joe uses, it would be the kit lens, which doesn´t make much sense for sensor quality evaluation really.
I´m absolutely happy to see even M3 with 50mm instead of the old lab scene with 22mm.
Thank you DPR!!!!

sh10453: A nice sample. Colors look natural on my monitor. I like the variety, from the cozy kitchen to the harsh snow slopes.

Question to DPR:
Why are you always using Adobe's instead of the manufacturers' software for processing? Is it that you are afraid to learn anything new beside Adobe's stuff?
Canon, for example, provides its own software with its cameras for free. Sony provides Capture One-for-Sony free, ..., etc.

I would think that the manufacturers tune their cameras to their provided image editing software for best results.
The way I view Adobe is similar to an abusive relationship. The more a spouse is abused, the more he/she will remain in the relationship because he/she says "I can't leave ... because I love him/her"! :-)
I know I'm going to get a ton of arrows launched at me from Adobe "lovers", but I already have my bullet-proof jacket on. So set your bows aside and relax.
I refuse to be abused!!!

Just my 2 cents, like you are entitled to yours.

Look at the picture with the grass on the hill with some people. Default JPG processing is a mush, and Canon DPP cannot do a lot about that too. Very poor performance from the manufacturer, who has best knowledge about their gear. Adobe smashes it easily for detail and sharpness processing. My two cents. Keep your bullet proof west, It doesn't help when you're hit by a car. ;-)

crashpc: As usual, with basic JPEG processing, grass looks like ugly mush. ISO performance is okay, but I still wonder If I shouldn´t jump to FF... Decisions, Decisions!

Jared, good luck with your decision. It´s not that easy obviously. Hope your enthusiasm about the camera choice will last long. Whatever choice we do, there will obviously be great compromise.
