FLruckas: So the Norwegian couples...
Fly to California....
With their photographer....
Hike to potato chip rock...
And take a similar picture...
(With sunshine and not clouds)...
Then go to Disneyland...
In the afternoon...
All in this photographer and couple's back yard....
:=)

dude,
In California, it is impossible. You cannot beat the traffic and won't find parking spot. And along with you five Indian and Chinese hikers will be there in the photo.

moimoi: Ok, I went to digital picture, and here is the comparison between:

https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=687&Camera=979&Go.x=8&Go.y=6&Go=Go&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=1137&CameraComp=1106&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0

(i) Canon 5DsR + Canon 70-200 mm f/2.8 IS ii
(ii) Sony A7Rii + Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS

Sensor size is a bit different (but using the metabone and the A7Rii for both maybe not be a fair comparison), but overall, center is better with Canon, and the other differences are not that significant. At 200 mm wide open (i.e., at f/2.8), the differences are even more significant.

The Sony lens is okay, but I think it is bit too overpriced. Should be 2 kUSD.

@whumber,
Yes, I agree with you after reading this explanation

IMHO, the digital picture website is no so good. Between Canon 100-400 IS and Canon 100-400 IS MKII it shows very little difference, in all focal lengths, with no numerical or graphical presentation. I don't think it is trustable resource.

I think the Sony is No less sharp and it is the 20% difference pixels that makes the difference.

Whatever it is, I like this.
The propaganda and fake news create lot of issues, panic , revolts and bloodshed.

jaykumarr: In Electronic VR video, I see that the cam did not even attempt to focus at the glass tumblers for 2-3 seconds. But the VR is very effective.

Thank you @Richard Butler.
That changes my understanding.

jaykumarr: the trend is "you cannot buy a Canon camera without compromising" . Such as you compromise DR in 6Dii or OVF & AF fine tuning in 77D or older a bit slower processor in 80D (compared to 77D). Sorry Canon, your lens are fantastic, not the the cameras.

For those who pointed out weakness of Nikon D7500, see dpreview review score and rating on Amazon. Despite 50% higher in price, Nikon D7500 has 5 stars, while canon77D has 4.

@sharlin,
You are thinking you are very smart and fired a silver bullet. But think leaving aside your instant repulsive tendency.

Take D7500. That is my answer to "Show me a camera without compromises.". It has no compromise compared to D7200. Take D850 , no compromise compared to D800.

If you think still your argument is the best, check rating for 77D in Amazon.com. It is the first time, the rating has gone down 4 stars. Never a Canon SLR in history got it.

In reply to:

Eliot Kramer: No offense but this is completely meaningless list without any merit or value.
It is nothing more than a plug for Nikon. Here are the lenses we make. Buy them for your new Nikon camera. The end. Why not just include a link to their lens product page and people can just buy any of them and it would end up being the same.

This is not a comparison of value as measured by any standard where one product is better than another so it does not present any useful information. Pure foolishness and waste of time.

Your waste of time is their 'amazon sales link'

// To try and match depth of field, Manny shot the A9 photos at F2.8, and the A6500 photos were taken wide open at F1.8, at least for the daytime photos.//

Similarly if you keep Full Frame camera at F22 and do portrait, any smart phone will win;

jessedacri: Good comparison, but there are so, so, so, so many better choices on the market than any of Canon's DSLRs, especially the APS-C ones. For video, they're bottom of the barrel and I'd hope someone looking to shoot on a $3000 budget does the research to end up with a much more capable camera for the money. All other competitors have vastly larger dynamic range, better features for the operator, better low light performance and more resolution/framerate options. Not to mention vastly more detailed 1080p if you're comparing side by side. The Sony A7s and A7sII, A6300 and 6500, Panasonic GH4 and GH5, even the A7RII are all vastly better choices for very similar money.

But it is Canon that bribes Amazon

I can understand 24fps.
say for a BIF, the camera can focus approximately once every 5 shots, accurately once in those 5 shots. So at 24 shots one will be sharp.

I was expecting Canon to throw a new camera.. something surprisingly good against nikon D850.... just like Canon threw 7D after Nikon D300.
For some reason I feel sad for Canon.

3 for mars mission.
50 for personal uses.
Scientists discovered that the 53 cameras are too heavy payload and won't charge in solar power. So 3 were taken and 50 were distributed to Nasa kids.

On article How to buy used gear (and not get burned) (141 comments in total)

I bought two lens ( nikon TC1.5x and sigma 100-300 F4) from KEH. While their service is exceptional and they accepted returns, Nikon barely made any change and Sigma was a garbage. Either they did not do any testing or my canon rebel was not in alignment with Sigma.

In 2007 - 2011 every photo from Blackberry looked better than every photo from iPhone I owned. From 2011-2017 every photo in Samsung/google phone looks better. And we know Apple failed both in AI & machine learning while google, microsfot did a great job. So this article is plain wrong.

Biggreydog: Do people REALLY buy a dslr and then use it to shoot stills of moving bicyclists using live view? Holding the camera out at the end of their arms? Really?
Dpreview seems to love Canon for improving live view in all their models, without doing much at all for viewfinder focusing.
I use live view when the camera's on a tripod, for macro and long lenses. For 99% of my photography, improvements to live view are a waste of engineering.
Thanks for nothing, Canon.

They want to do 'dad's camera. Your daughter/son performs in school program, you take video or photo using live view. It will sell well, despite not a real weapon
