Well, I used to think that Nikon with it's so many levels of D-Lighting and auto option is superior to Canon's ALO with three levels and no auto option. But now after seeing these photos it seems that 'Auto' D-Lighting is not very intelligent, and may be not better than
Canon's ALO.

J A C S: "...half the values in your Raw file (the values between 2048 and 4096 in a 12-bit Raw file) are devoted to the brightest stop of light you captured."

Half of the values is just one bit in the data, roughly speaking. To accommodate that extra bit, the RAW file needs to be just 1/14 or so larger, assuming the same step.

Also, I am not so sure about this statement: "In a typical out-of-camera JPEG rendering, the first ~3.5EV are captured above middle grey, and the first three of these stops of highlights have used up 7/8th of your Raw file."

That statement is correct. 1st EV occupies 50% of the file, 2nd one 25%, 3rd one 12.5%. So total = 87.5%. 7/8 = .875 =87.5% .

KLO82: I may be minority here (or may be the only person), but if I were a Nikon user and could afford this camera, my only reservation would be so many megapixels. I do not need this many pixels, even my 20MP 6D is filling my hard disk at a very high rate without giving anything that is really useful to me.

@GodSpeaks: I could use every other advantage/ feature this camera offers, except for the mega pixels. So in a sense I am also target market.

This or EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM - which one is a better walk around/ general purpose lens on a full frame Canon?

KLO82: Entry level performance for professional level money. (copied from someone's comment in Facebook)

If you are using their camera models for professionals like 5DIII/IV/S/ S R, 7DII or 1D line, there is no reason to be upset, those are truly excellent DSLRs for still photography. But their non professional models which are actively crippled are the problems.

"Our main criticism with the handling of both the 6D II (and the 80D, for that matter) concerns the rear dial and multi controller. The dial itself is fine, but the eight-way controller is a disaster." - this is my experience with 6D too. They made the multi controller intentionally crippled. I can almost never select the corner points by pressing the corner/ diagonal buttons on 6D. And the selection algorithm is flawed (or most likely intentionally crippled) too. My main reason for not choosing a 6DII is lack of AF joystick. Specially with so many AF points lack of joystick is a disaster - it will slow down the selection of AF points even more than original 6D.

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.

1. Hey, we are trying to earn money by putting lots of time and effort to provide the best service/ product for your hard earned money.

2. Hey, we are trying to earn money by putting lots of time and effort by actively crippling your product/ service.

Which approach is going to create more brand loyalty?

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!
