Mais78: wow, I sold my 6D to upgrade but the Mk II seems even worse in the noise department. I regret selling.

Samuel, what you say might be true for the Canon vs Nikon comparison but what about Canon vs Canon? The 6D Mkii does worse than the 6D.
I think I will buy back the 6D or wait for Sony A7RIII.

Thanks, will take a look. Hope DPR is wrong.

Mais78: And low light performance? As good as old 6D?

Never had any problem with banding with Mark I...
Did they disclose sensitivity of AF center point?

Mais78: Did they improve the aperture control wheel? On the A7RII it is very difficult to turn it as too recessed. That alone for me was a good reason not to buy the a7.

I am used to Canon (who has a much bigger and "clicky" wheel than Nikon) do you think the new improved one is good enough?

Number 7 is a great lesson in how to build a story out of nothing. Caption could have said: this lady in Havana makes money by being photographed by tourists dressed up in traditional attire, so like any other I paid and took a shot of her.

i think it sell well.
anna pilipova has made every award with a series pretty boring...shooting snow place in russia'? but award are just a repeating. most jurors look other award and simply replicate the choice automatically.

Going to Bangladesh for Easter, I really only shoot twice a year, Easter and Christmas holidays, I am a tourist, not a pro. I would go to Lalibela for their Christmas (7 Jan). That's when the pilgrimage gets massive, not sure now. I was in Sri Lanka last year if you need any tips for those two countries give me a shout.

Thanks Jonny. I m the author of the Lalibela reportage and I was surprised to be selected as unlike the others I am just an amateur. If you are a travel photographer these days it is difficult to find something that has not been photographed yet. When I took these pics I was not aware of the pilgrimage, I found myself there by chance. I agree many of my pics are "saw it already" (I realized it when back) but there are a couple I am proud of, in particular the exorcist. I did some research when back from the trip and could not find any pic on the subject on the internet. Only later in 2015, after my trip, the Guardian commissioned a reportage on the exorcism in Ethiopia and as far as I can see those are the only ones on the subject. Reportage are always more difficult then single shots, as they have to tie together and finding 10 "masterpieces" in a 10 pic reportage is very difficult. If you are curious I have more pics here https://www.flickr.com/photos/madario/albums/72157654249484730

DPR has put only one pic per photographer in the gallery but in reality these are reportages of 10 pics each and you should judge them as such. Take a look at the WPO website https://www.worldphoto.org/zeiss-camera-lenses/2017-zeiss-photography-award

Thanks Damien. Indeed, almost 5000 photographers from all over the world. Also the exhibition in London is great, I go every year. Nice to see a few of mine hanging on the walls this time!

Having tried a Leica SL I have to say that is the viewfinder that I prefer over optical, anything less I prefer OVF

I own a EM5 I as back up body for my FF and I am very happy about it and available lenses. Anyway I would never spend more than 600-700 euro for a m43 camera. The advances vs olders bodies are minor, so a new release is a good chance to buy the older body at discounted price.

Have m43 sensors peaked with EM5? Are the EM5II, EM1 and EM1II any better?

Thanks, you have confirmed, probably without understanding it, it was a discretionary marketing decision to have people pay for the EJ, just like I said.
