Kaso: A "marketing education" piece, followed by a "quickie review" piece, further padded by a "buying consideration" piece -- and there might be some other pieces in the next few days!

Does the crippled 6D Mark II deserve this kind of wide-dynamic-range coverage? Do you run out of important topics and have to resort to "milking" like Canon?

Go out and shoot.

"Do you run out of important topics..."

Yes, they must.

And DPR thanks you for clicking on this article. :-) Websites need clicks, one way or another.

justmeMN: It's strange that, after a five year period, Canon would come out with such a half-hearted upgrade. I wonder if this camera is just a placeholder, while they complete a significantly better FF camera in the same price range.

[Slide 5] Reusing the 80D AF system, which wasn't even designed for a FF camera, doesn't strike me as "what it should be".

Pilsenaaa: all these drones are only more trouble in the future , I wish we could live again in a droneless world

A smartphoneless world would be even better.

Nikon's next step is to make a KeyMission brand drone that crashes. :-)

landscaper1: I realize that, with the declining release of new digital cameras, DPREVIEW is having a hard time finding useful material to keep the front page fresh every day. I'm not sure what the answer is, but I'm pretty sure that including news items and essays about film and film cameras is hardly in keeping with "digital photography."

If the DPREVIEW editors haven't done so already, I strongly recommend that they allot some quiet time together to brainstorm about the future of this site and what they can do to keep it true to its name and its history. Because, with each passing day, it's becoming more and more evident to DPREVIEW's loyal readers that the editors are aimlessly wandering in search of a revised mission.

Olympus PEN-F is a digital camera, not a film camera.

The important thing is that the Olympus PEN-F looks pretty. :-)

"These new programs build upon the deep commitment Nikon has made to supporting imaging talent." - press release

It's too bad that they don't have a deep commitment to obtaining management talent. :-)

(They have good engineers though.)

Serge Mailli: This is going to put the final nail in Karma's coffin. GoPro needs a new drone in a hurry. Yuneec needs one as well.

Perhaps Nikon is working on a KeyMission drone. :-)

In reply to:

pierpa: Does anyone know, or can ask Canon, why they give some cameras different names in different zones?

It can't be only to confuse users, can it? there must be a proper reason?

Perhaps the different names are to deter grey market camera distribution. With the model name prominently displayed on the camera, it's pretty obvious if a camera is "out of region".

This looks like a really nice, well thought out, camera.

"If you've ever felt down, defeated,...

This Eugene O'Neill quote will perk you right up:

"None of us can help the things life has done to us. They're done before you realize it, and once they're done they make you do other things until at last everything comes between you and what you'd like to be, and you've lost your true self forever."

My local City Council are enthusiastic drone supporters, for use in commercial property building proposals.

"Coming to market over five years after the release of its predecessor" -DPR

If you're going to do a half-hearted upgrade, you should do it faster than that.

DPR's award system isn't comprehensive enough. They should add a Bronze Award and a Participation Ribbon. :-)

"But most of all, one day I'd like to be as carefree as a child painting a page with delight."

Then don't aspire to call yourself an artist. Just do what you want, for the fun of it.
