Knowing Canon, may be they should start offering extra DR on 6D2 at a rate of $100 per stop? People who want more DR should pay more. (Akin to C Log offered for extra price on 5DIV). May be they will start charging for each and every firmwire updates too? :D

milkod2001: This is bad news for Canon users but realistically we are already at the state where there is no excuse to not get shot done with existing cameras like 6D/5D4/1Dxii, Nikon D750/D810/D500/D5 ,Sony Mirrorless etc. All extras this or upcoming cameras will give us are just icing on cake.

No, I am not talking about sports photography. I need it to shoot children, candid portraits in events and even day to day photos. To me it seems we have come to a point where a single cross type AF point and a very few AF points in the center of the frame should not be accepted.

I almost agree with you, but to me AF is very very important and can make or break a photo. Original 6D is not adequate in this department.

Which approach is going to create more brand loyalty?

KLO82: To me, 5D IV/ 5D III/ D750 > 6D II. I would never ever upgrade from 5D III to 6D II .

@SkySpades: yes, but see the 3rd slide of this article. That is why I wrote.

Image 67 shows why more DR would be better.

Image 47 says lens used was Canon EF-S 24mm F2.8 STM. That can't be correct, raight?

KLO82: If I were a heavy live view user, may be I would buy it. In live view AF covers 80% of the frame and frame rate is 4.5FPS. But using it as a conventional DSLR feels stupid, all the 45 AF sensor are in the middle, I mean whats the point of having so many AF points then? No AF joystick, no dual card slot. Crippled it all the way to keep 5DIV more desirable.

In 2017, we are still using a focus and recompose camera. how stupid is that?

On article Now we know: Sony a9 is sharper than we thought (394 comments in total)

"Remember that even within the depth-of-field, there is a plane of peak sharpness." The thing is, the DoF calculators give DoF numbers based on 10x8 inch outputs from a certain distance. The more we zoom in on the photo, the smaller the DoF becomes when viewed from the same distance. So it is really a complicated issue.

On article First shots from new Nikon 28mm F1.4E ED (224 comments in total)

I think wide angle lens like this forces somewhat center heavy images.

I an very confused about which is a better general purpose prime lens, a 35mm or a 28mm?

Nice pics BTW!

I don't pixel peep, like never. But many of the images with this article looks mushy even at small size. Don't know if it is me, or something else.

He still enjoys working with 5Diii which is an old camera (released in 2012), has banding and relatively low DR. That seems preposterous here in dpreview :) . He also uses an A7R, but mainly for keeping low profile and when he needs video with stills.

On article Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range (666 comments in total)
In reply to:

chshooter: Be it a sports camera or not. People who want to spend big bucks on a flagship camera expect the best technology and quality in every way. Professional cameras are not just meant for sport but have to be reliable powerhouses that handle everything well. Having the camera fall short of the established competition is a dealbreaker. The once famous Sony dynamic range has now dropped below Canon level. Same happened with the a99II which is even worse than its five year old predecessor.

Many professionals are still buying and using 5D III which has banding and relatively low DR.

Looks like the bokeh is very distracting for not being distracting.

Sometimes limitation of technology enforce certain aesthetics in imaging. For example movies were shot in 24fps because it was the lowest frame rate that resulted in smooth motion, but it was not close to the "true" fps of human eye/ brain (which is closer to 60 fps or something) . But 24 fps was chosen to keep the film cost low. And now it has become a part of cinematic look. Movie cameras were used with dollys and cranes because those movie cameras were huge and very hard to carry. Now the smooth motion associated with cranes and dollys has become a part of the cinematic aesthetic. Photography itself is a technology (and art) with limitation - we are representing 3D world in a 2D screen or paper, and it has created a certain look. Now it seems that we are too used to the bokeh of the imperfect-bokeh lenses and the sterile look of this perfect bokeh machine looks unappealing to many.

KLO82: From my understanding, Canon used 1.3x crop because sports/ action photographers do not have the scope to focus and recompose and traditionally full frame af points do not cover the rule of thirds intersecting points. May be current frame coverage of AF points of FF cameras are good enough and that's why they have stopped producing the 1.3x cameras.

But D3 AF points didn't cover the rule of thirds intersecting points, but 1DII's AF points did. This is what Canon wanted to achieve with 1.3x crop sensors.

dash2k8: Can someone confirm if the Sony Eye AF is the same thing that Canon had in the EOS-3 from the 90's? I believe it was called the Eye-Control system.

Not same. Eye-AF detects and tracks subject's eye (not the photographer's eye to understand where to focus).
