On article DPReview TV: First thoughts on the Canon R (353 comments in total)

Why the hurry to produce a video in such an unprofessional way ?

IdM photography: Two of the announced lenses have "IS", that means that the camera probably won't have in-body stabilization... That's bad news...

ojos azules: Excplains why Nikon rushed 2 unfinished products to the market.

The Canon looks unfinished. There is something ugly about the camera as though you take a full frame dslr and hack its sides to make it look smaller. Also the lenses are only a road map and will not be available immediately. Wait till you see the video and image quality,this is the same 6d sensor with higher megapixels.Canon was forced to prepone the launch due to the Nikon release. That explains why they released only one camera.

Conclusion :
1. If you are a Nikon user, pick up the Nikon Z
2. If you are a Canon user, pick up the Canon EOS R
3. If you are a Sony user, then stay with the a7/a9 models

Status quo of the 3 big players will not change.

"We're confident in saying that, as of now, the Z 7 is Nikon's most well-rounded camera they've ever produced."

Not bad from folks who have actually used the camera, compared to the armchair critics who have already written this camera off.

In reply to:

samhain: Am I reading this right- Nikon officially announced their new mirrorless camera, without giving one single detail, spec or actual photo of the camera?
You gotta be kidding me.

This is a new low for product announcements.

This is a development announcement. Re-read.

Christop82: Thank you for bringing light to this subject. I feel for any woman who has to live under Islam. I don't understand how a human can treat another human worse than cattle.

This series is set in India which is not an Islamic country. Improve your sense of geography, you dumb Trumphead !

In reply to:

kewlguy: Canon has no shame, clearly.

Reactive, the issue here is that in light of the competition, this camera is not worth $500. Often, folks who defend a particular brand zealously without any basis fall back on statements like " a great photographer can take excellent photographs with a Brownie " etc.

MattSolo: Canon has upped its lens game quite a bit with new STM series. Affordable price and good optics.
NIKON!!!!! Learn something and give us some sugar!!

Which equivalent offerings ? as far as I am aware, Canon has not released any new 28, 35 or 85 mm equivalent so far. We only have the 50 mm which compares to a Nikon lens equivalent in terms of focal length and maximum aperture.

Nikon has been updating its primes for the last couple of years. We have had the Nikon 50mm 1.8 G I think 3 -4 years ago. Also you have the 85/35/20/28/58 primes released. The 28/35/50/85 are all new 1.8 designs and are quite affordable. I think Canon is learning from Nikon now and updating its primes !

In reply to:

Esquilo: First of all, all telephoto lenses with focal lengths over 55 mm will always be FX lenses (the 85 mm macro being the notable exception). There is simply no benefit to make DX lenses for longer focal lengths. When going shorter than about 60 mm there is some size and weight to be gained fror small aperture lenses like the 55-200 and 55-300, but the biggest gain (for Nikon that is) with those lenses are that they are not professional and are made to sub-professional standards. For large aperture lenses the gains are smaller. That's why we'll probably never se any other fast prime for DX than the 35 mm f/1,8 (which is "almost" a FX lens anyway). The reason the FX variant of the 35 mm f/1,8 is more expensive compared to the other lenses in the f/1,8 series is simply that it can not be sold to DX-users which is the majority of Nikon users.

Nikon has a 55-200 and a 55-300 all DX.

bluevellet: If I were buying my first DSLR, this is probably the model I'd go for. Unspectacular (for review sites), but fully functional, feature-packed and reasonably priced.

If and only if they used a pentaprism view finder of the D7x00 series....

In reply to:

Wubslin: Awesome.

Outdated and inadequate technology, crammed into an unattractive form-factor, with an impenetrable user interface, producing substandard results.

It's almost as if Nikon *want* to fail.

Which camera are you referring to ? The Sigma Quattro ?

James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.

All the Canon fanboys and trolls will be out in full force today....Whiners against progress...

DP Review, why is the 7D Mark II review out already while the XT1 , D810 and the D750 reviews are still taking time ? Is it because the 7D is easier to test ?

Peter Bendheim: For the Sony fanboys this review must be like being in a starved lion pack dropped in the middle of a herd of buck - free lunch, a real banquet, something to get those claws into.

Meanwhile the Canon fan boys are still hungry, grabbing at what ever scraps of meat the mothership offers to them. If only they crossed over and saw the banding free light in the shadows....
