Just Ed: I see by the posts that nothing has changed with most of the "comments" participants. Haters gotta hate I guess!

And fans gotta spin? Hahaha..sorry couldn't resist the pun.

Max Iso: And Canon starts to take over the market..... NOW. It was only a matter of time, they have the best video AF in the game and they are implimenting 4k one by one. It will trickle down in time, DPAF and 4k will hammer any other system that leans on 4k. Nikon may still lead the way for pure stills camera power but Canon is making the best all around system. DPAF FTW.

Yes, but I'm afraid they save the best for cinema cameras.

role_of_72: I won't have one but it is a really nice camera!

And for those who are desperate because of the 1.65 crop factor in 4K mode: just mount a Sigma 10-20, Tokina 11-16 or Samyang 8mm on it and come back to thank me the good advice. :)

No Canon lens? :)

PorscheDoc: Why limit the shot buffer to only 17 raw (https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/explore/see-legendary/comparison )? At this price point I expected a larger buffer.

They want to differentiate this from 1D series, that's why.

User8303410032: If there is a 1.6 crop in video, why not allow for EF-S lens, for the wide angle...

kingslayer: Canon needs to come out with a full frame mirrorless or they will end up like Blackberry.

They won't (they sell a whole lot more than camera) but Canon FF mirrorless would be SUPER SUPER nice.

TyphoonTW: But does it overheat during 4k video? I mean, only top cameras overheat while recording 4k video, if the 5DmkIV doesn't then it means it's stone-age trash.

ttran88: Is there a way for me to shoot with dual pixel through the OVF? I don't want to hold a heavy DSLR out like a smartphone to have accurate AF.

Dual pixel tech belongs to the mirrorless world. Period. I bet the only reason they put it in 5D Mk4 is video. What's the point of selling the best on-sensor AF in a camera with an OVF(DSLR major selling point) ? 5D Mark II became very popular in the videography, they want to continue that trend.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: On a Full Frame camera, at a distance of 10 feet, the DOF would be 2.26 inches, just enough to get half of a face into focus.

On a cropped sensor APS-C camera, at the same distance of 10 feet, the DOF would be a sensational 1.43 inches, just enough to get the eyeballs into focus!

"The AF and VC better work on this thing, Captain!" - Grand Moff Tarkin

.

At the same distance, Isn't the DoF will be the same??

In reply to:

Flemming from Banana hill: The colours of photos and videos from the two cameras are much closer than I experienced in the past with other DLSR+compact combinations. Few people are able to see a difference when I mix images and video from the two after gentle post-processing..
So no winner but two cameras that complement each other well.

Indeed. It's not about DSLR vs mirrorless, many DSLR users bought mirrorless as a complementary system to their traditional DSLR system.

In reply to:

Donnie G: You can quibble all you want about the EOS M10 and M3 feature sets, but both cameras are quietly and consistently building mirrorless ILC marketshare for Canon while the competition struggles to hold on to whatever little bit of market they've got. Canon has already taken over the number three mirrorless marketshare position from Panasonic and, IMO, will own the lion's share of that market by the end of 2018. While I'm certain that Canon's next EOS M body will be geared more toward U.S. and European tastes this time around, it's the cheap, but well made M10 and M3 that will conquer Asia and the rest of the developing world's markets. :))

How promising.. hope Canon accelerates its mirrorless development. But I don't think they share your optimism. Win in mirrorless market not only take lion's share of the mirrorless market but also from DSLR as well. That's what they afraid the most. For Canikon, profit margin for DSLR must be very high compared to mirrorless, being making SLR/DSLR for a very long time.

In reply to:

tkbslc: Canon invents the ultimate sensor based AF system and then only puts it in cameras with a mirror and Optical Finders. And they use old crummy Compact camera tech in their Mirrorless system. Makes absolutely no sense at all! It's like having air conditioning standard on cars you sell in Canada, but not even an option on cars sold in Dubai.

The path for Canon to really compete in mirrorless seems obvious. A camera like the GX85 with a built in EVF and dual-pixel and you'd have a hit. Launch it with a couple more primes along the lines of the 22mm f2 and you'd have m4/3 and Sony APS-C feeling worried.

Agree..

raindance: On dpreview and DXO the winner is the Sony 6300. In the real world it's the Canon 80D, 'nuff said.

Your point is people buy inferior product for a name brand? : )

I was just kidding, in case you didn't get it.

In reply to:

Boss of Sony: Micro 4/3 cameras (in particular the more compact MFT camera bodies) are much more enjoyable to use than either the Sony or Canon APS-C cameras, because the lenses are so much smaller and cuter (and have very good IQ too)! MFT kit lenses are also better than the Sony and Canon kit lenses.

"...because the lenses are so much smaller and cuter..."

Because sensor is cuter? :)

damian5000: Looks great, but they forgot to add a $2 touch display. All that incredible tech, and still no tap focus.

@miki nemeth - maybe because dedicated af module is not available during live move/video?

thoth22: The word superior is used too often in your writings, it makes me think of the word hyperbole for some reason.

It does? For me superior is nothing more than a '>'.

I see only cameras here.

Any chance you're related to Drax the Destroyer? :)

In reply to:

DualSystemGuy: In the DR section, why do you only touch on low ISO DR? Nikon DR is higher at high ISO, Canon DR is higher at low ISO. These cameras are most likely going to be used at high ISO's most of the time, not base ISO. It's only a step back at base ISO, more importantly at high ISO it's a step forward.

At higher ISO, people usually talk about noise, not DR. But it's pretty clear from the graph actually, maybe that's the reason they did not explain it.

On article Comparison Review: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 ZA vs 55mm F1.8 ZA (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

new boyz: I think the focus planes were not exactly the same(f1.7 vs f1.8). 50mm is sharper for nearer objects, while 55mm sharper halfway to infinity. And for the 50mm, the left half is sharper than the right side.. so maybe decentering or something.

Also while comparing at f2, I can clearly see an airplane(Air Force One?) on 50mm sample... the 55mm missed it. :)

Ha ha.. great minds think alike!
