In reply to:

Sacher Khoudari: Is there any direct comparison to Fuji's 56/1.2? Both lenses should have a similar DoF.

Sacher, I've been looking for something similar, where's the 110mm\f2 comparison to an 85mm \f1.4?

MrImprovement: I frankly admit I am confused that the GFX gets lots of press and the Pentax 645Z, which is more mature, can take more lenses, etc. gets none.

Is the Fujifilm team of PR reps composed of hunky jocks and sweatered cheerleaders, while Pentax sends over "Prospector Pete" in overalls and boots?

Simple, people like new and shiny.

ScottnLaguna: As a wildlife shooter, I could not be more excited about this new D850. Already very happy with the DX version (D500) this one just adds more features. The amazing AF and huge buffer using XQD has been such a pleasant experience with the D500. Lately, I have been shooting backstage, in the dark with D500 and it has done the job very well for me. The QC button allows high speed quiet mode and it is a nice feature. All the good of D500 and full frame DOF, plus +plus. As far as mirrorless and video, I don't care about them. I want a big, bright viewfinder and no lag with super fast autofocus and a large buffer to process 9fps. If they fix Snapbridge, that would also be nice.

@ DocOnTheSpot, don't forget, at 45 MPs it will crop down to 20 MPs very nicely. Its effectively a crop cam and full frame in one (more so with the grip and battery).

Wildlife shooters should be very happy...

Cool, a Chiclet with an "EF-M" mount.

fedway: Which begs the question of why $6,000 cameras have LCD screens that are worse quality, less functionality and smaller than the screens of $150 smart phones.

@Charrick1, you're right... I do want you to keep your "mouth shut" (however, I accept that will likely not happen). It would be even better if you stopped parroting things you hear on Youtube.

Function over form, photographers shoot pictures with their cameras and view on computers, not the other way around. Yes, we all like a beautiful screens, but not at the expense of function.

vermaden: No stabilization for movies? In the middle of 2017? No comment ;)

+1 Vince, but don't forget... most video stabilization works by using cropped sensor pixels, and this is full frame readout. No cropped pixels to play with.

I think the viewfinder is my favorite feature. The high res and speed are a close second though.

Mared: Why are the displays on the back of cameras so tiny?

Most photographers prefer tactile buttons over cell phone touch options, but that will inevitably change, whether you like it or not. Once that is done (most likely by Sony first), more space will be free'd up for chimping big screens.

Wow, that's a shot across the bow.

"Equivalence is useful if you have any interest in light (and as a photographer, you probably should)"

Then...

" ...It’s (Equivalence) an effective tool, whether you have need for it or not."

Which is it?

Personally, I see it as merely a point to base an argument on. It's not the actual understanding of the "why", it's simply a sound argument explaining the relation. Something cool to understand, but not in the least necessary.

I can't say it was a blind test, I knew in nearly all the shots which were which and my preference was swayed slightly. But there were a couple where I knowingly choose the Nikon and Sony, because they were shot to my tastes. I do like that Nikon has slowly warmed up their color space, but I think they went a hair too far. Sony's color palette is a little sterile, but does look good. Canon's minor tweaks and very consistence, clean, and balanced look wins it for me.

Really... Gotta be kidding me, I'm not sure if he realized it when he, the student, proved the teacher's theory is garbage in five minutes flat.

J A C S: So B&H favored Hispanics and treated them badly... Does not make sense unless they were mostly "undocumented".

JACS, not completely, but definitely possible. Stereotypes of work ethics and generalizations say, taking advantage of that demographic would be easier than others. So in that line of thinking, that demographics may be less inclined to complain. It's basically a numbers game. Screw over 20 and if 4 complain you "grease" those wheels and count the profits on the other 16.

Trying hard to push this one!

Take it to a private venue. Plain and simple, you can't limit photography when there is no reasonable expectation of privacy.

russbarnes: Let's face it, if Nikon released this, everyone would be calling for resignations from the board and spelling out "the end of Nikon". As it is, somehow Canon will be allowed to get away with this substandard POS. Or will they? I rather think they need to be given a spanking for this from their user base because as long as people buy it, Canon will think it's the way forward - the recent story of unexpected demand for this I'm just not buying at all. Ultimately I feel sorry for the Canon customer base and the damage this is doing to the whole brand.

By comparison look at what Nikon are likely to pack into the D850, and it's anyone's guess what Sony will try and put into something like the A7RIII. There are still innovators in the market, but Canon are RAPIDLY losing their way.

"Let's face it, if Nikon released this, everyone would be calling for resignations from the board "

Are you kidding... there wasn't a single compliment in that review. What more are you looking for? The community has ripped this release a new one and you think there's some odd double standard because it's Canon?

When's the last time you read something, or saw a video commending Canon on anything other than Dual Pixel...

Conspiracy Theory:

This type of thing will simply kill stock photography. Stock has been on its knees for the last 10-15 years anyway, but this will completely end it... if Unsplash can hold out long enough. This isn't a exactly cheap to do, Photobucket has proven that and Flickr is feeling it. But, once there are enough photos and the company is well known, it will be a monopoly, and then they can choose to charge people once again.
