Kainecons: ouch. the fact that my 3 year old d750 outperforms in nearly aspect says a lot about canon and the 'canon tax'

Very reminiscent of the Apple tax. This is Canon at its most arrogant. I'm sorry but this is disgraceful! I'm so peeved (can't swear in the DPR comments section) off at Canon right now.

ShaiKhulud: I hope they will fix SOMETHING in the future software updates. That lifted shadows ISO 100 picture is awful.

So that's why its so bad...off-chip ADCs. I thought Canon's latest crop of sensors went the Sony route by incorporating them on-chip. Apparently with the 6D II sensor that's not the case. That's bad form Canon!

GodSpeaks: Good they are FINALLY developing a mirrorless system, but what is the fate of the Nikon 1 system?

Who were Nikon targeting with the 1 system anyway? An interchangeable lens MILC (good) but using a small sub M45/APS-C quality 1" sensor (bad). Very few wanted that.

That's good news for Nikon, but I'm currently dying to see a successor to the D810. Rumored for the end of the month...I really hope that's true!

I hope this might be an indicator that Nikon will be taking video and LV more seriously with the rumored D810 replacement supposedly being released towards the end of this month. Finally Nikon implementing PDAF points on their (non-1 series) sensors. Its going to be a neccessity too if they release MILCs in the near future, and want to remain competitive.

This lens turned out to be better than I was expecting spec-wise. And not too pricey either. Its tempting...

GabrielZ: "No touchscreen touchpad AF with eye on viewfinder" Really! This is a DSLR not a MILC. The viewfinder's optical, with the sensor covered by the mirror when in use. How would touchpad AF work? The standard multi-directional pad is better for that situation anyway.

My misunderstanding, I see how it works now. Silly me!

GabrielZ: Meh...underwhelming as usual for a new Canon DSLR, even their MILC's are dull. They make great often innovative lenses, but their cameras, not so much. Solid workhorses that sell in the bucketloads, so why innovate? That's been Canon's mantra for a number of years now.

Dual pixel was innovative when it came out...a number of years ago now. Flicker detection also cool if not mind blowing tech. But with the world rapidly going towards LED lighting, it'll be less useful going forward. As I said in my previous comment, solid reliable workhorses (which isn't a back handed complement) they are, interesting technically they're not. Also compared to the competition, they're higher-end cameras like this one are very expensive for what they offer.

When I read the new sensor has less DR than the one used in the 5D Mk4 (which itself while good for a Canon, still isn't great in that department) and is non ISO invariant it put me off. I'm sorry but for a new FF DSLR at this price, this is an underwhelming spec. Apart from the admittedly well implemented touch screen interface (still the best of its type in the industry) and LV AF, the D750 trumps it (and that camera is a few years old now) and has the better sensor. Its a shame Nikon are in such a mess at the moment. This camera is for long time Canon users only.

xsamie: It's a solid camera, the price is right. No real complain, no real excitement. A full frame 80D.

FF 80D...exactly!

Well that's bloody annoying! I've used Lexar branded memory cards for years and found them to be excellent reliable products, with great brand recognition and cache too IMO. My favorite memory card brand, I'm also fond of their Workflow Professional hub and readers. And now Micron are dumping them...those douches!

Pavel Matousek: finally!
however High Sierra seems dissapointing so far

Its more of minor upgrade, than a big jump. The new file system's good though.

10 bit dithering is not the same (or as good) a full 10bit color depth right? This reminds me of older LCD monitors back in the day that claimed 8bit color but were actually 8bit dithering on a 6bit display.

These new iPads are what I was most interested in seeing at WWDC this year. After a long wait I'm finally getting one. Something that wasn't 100% clear to me though is if all the upgraded features of this new 10.5" model are going to be in the 12.9" version too? Which is actually the one I'm most interested in.

In reply to:

Fotoni: Nikon and video doesn't fit together. Mediocre video performance is common among many brands and models. 4K is not a magic cure for that. Internal 10-bit 4:2:2 full sensor readout supersampled 4K video is the standard for good video recording nowadays.

Scottelly - That's not the reason, full sensor oversampled 4K on this sensor would result in over heating issues. Its the same situation with their much more expensive DX flagship the D500. With which this camera shares the same sensor.

$50,000! The price of MF just beggars belief! I know...they're produced in very small numbers and maybe need to be priced that high to earn a profit etc...but the price of a new luxury saloon for a camera back, not even a whole camera! Just seems extremely indulgent to me. I imagine its ad agencies, photo equipment rental firms and the like that purchase the majority of these things rather than individuals though.
