Ebrahim Saadawi: what THE H#+ ?!! Canons makes THIS and it's still all trolling and hatd?! This dimply proves to me the intentention and qualityof DP commenters. I'll Just read the reviews from now on thank you!!

1- When did almost everybody on Dpreview shifr career for cinematography/video from photography whish is always been 99% of users!

I AM a cinematographer/director, and shooting in 4K resolution vs good 1080p resolution is minimal and I only see it in my colourist's room (a high end step no onr on dpreviiew will never exerience except a couple maybe). 4K allows cropping but thus enlarges noise, and it shows up only on thestrical projections, PLUS SONY CAN"T DO IT ON THE RIVAL OF THE M5!! Unless you call a burst then keep it cool is an option. It's CLEARLY a heat issue and Canon and Sony technology is NOT capable of, getting a 4k stream from a palm size ap-c camera. Why do you think all 4K cine camera have fans that shut when recording? Please don't bi#* about not having 4K like the a6300 because it doesn't have usable 4K. And the 1080p of the 80D is what we should be discussing, amateurs talk K numbers, knowledgable people discuss 1080p resolving power, aliasing, skin tones, lowlight performance, lens correction, stabilization quality, etc. So no 4K no video shooting is amature approach.

2- When again did everybody on dpreview beame professional videographers wearinh calibrated headphones and hooking expensive shotgun micriphones?! BTW we all use exrenal audio recoders becsuse the preamps are bad on all these caneras,

It seems ti be just a hunt for a little thing it doesn't do and destroy the camera for it!

For video the M5 offers solid Full HD video (current highest standard for web and televisions), up to 60p (with no drop in quality or crops as Sony's do), has a microphone input, has DPAF that can magically focus a s35 sensor without a focus puller. A grear EVF, peaking for old glass.

Complete support for vintage maual focus glass we love as cine makers: 5 AXIS Image stabilization (it's digital but wait and be surprised how it perform like IBIS), EVF and Peaking for focusing, lens mount that can take all of them, speedbooster support (FF M5).

And all those amazing canon optics with DPAF.

-For phitography, I can't see one flaw. Res, DR, raw, speed, ergo, buttons, AF, what's missing? maybe dual card slots and faster burst rate? The former is indeed relaxing in weddings but the later it's not a sports camera. For sports, spend 400$ more and get a 7D II if 7fps doesnlt do it. Also has dual slots. Big camera though and so can take LOOOTSSS of pictures like a jetfighter goingb through a sound barrier. FAST!

@ Gesture my point exactly Lambo / Ferrai / Bugatti which is best doesn't really matter most normal people look at fuel economy and boot (trunk) space!

I'm all for 4K, 8K and anything beyond but agree 99% of the world can't benefit from it, so can we move on and start reviewing camera's for the core stuff they do, capture memories!
Oh and I would count my self in the 1% that can benefit!

justnuaces: Interesting, thanks! :)

But... The Specifications in imperial measures? Seriously?
Be aware of the rest of the World, please.
You people from USA are so self-centered...

I'm waiting for the next review of the new 1.97 in lens. :P

•Empty bag weight: 1.1 kg / 2.5 lbs
•Average Outer dimensions: 30 x 43 x 18 cm / 12 x 17 x 7 in
•Colors Available: Charcoal and Heritage Tan

I guess it was the Charcoal and Heritage Tan that's confusing, try Grey Sky and Muddy Field colour :P

Has a mirror and isn't called Sony so this site is bound to hate it

In reply to:

BobFoster: Glass and that EVF is hideous to use for action and low light. The blanking and slow refresh at every shot and the graininess at low light was a show stopper for me. Cameras are systems and just measuring sensors doesn't mean you're going to get the shot. I preferred the image quality of the 5D mark III over the 7D II but the autofocus on the 7D II was fast and really good. Way better than the 5D in that regard for keepers. I'd like one (I rented for the weekend) but part of me is really tempted to wait for the 1DX refresh and just come up with the $.

Hear, hear well said - Thank you

grammieb14: I have a question for the Dpreview review staff. Why did the 70D get a gold award for a percentage rate 1pt lower than the 7D with a silver award. This is kind of confusing.

@ Simon great so what are the comparators here Nikon 7100 and ????
I'm not saying this is better than the Nikon thats personal choice, but this camera isn't a Sony A6000 or a A7R, or a Fuji XT1 or a Canon 5D3 so PLEASE can we have real like for like comparisons.

Charlie boots: I wonder why when the D800E has a score of 82% and is rated gold. This camera has a score of 84% and is rated silver?

@ Barney, I get that but this being the case why don't the reviews line up then, how many other Semi-pro APS-C DSLRs have touch screen, wifi and focus peaking in a weather sealed body. You have to be consistent I agree so please be so.

On article Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) (316 comments in total)

Some obvious omissions here notably Sony!!!
Also mirror-less implies small light weight camera so how come there are two bricks as winners...oh because they've got 4K. Why is this site so wrapped up in 4k did the editor by a new TV!!!!
4k is a marvellous feature like wifi, and gps but these aren't what make a camera good!

DP this has got to be the worse review EVER.

Phenomenal!!! Any chance we can get some RAW samples posted?

A bit cruel but does anyone think the G2 X might allow EFS or EF lenses to be attached? ;o))
