Weaker flash; no sensor cleaning. A backward step for a forward number.

veroman: Hey guys: you used "it's" instead of "its" in your opening comments. Come on now. That all-too-common typo is beneath dpreview.

How do you stand it, Barney? Nice review, nice camera, nice landscapes!

max metz: Huge effort, 3 cameras raw examples in one hit, excellent commitment to bringing dpreview members and visitors the latest evidence about the latest gear.

Admittedly some of the comments below illustrate short intellect reaching for something on a high shelf - but there are many many more who find this level of expertise and diligence invaluable.

Big thanks to dpreview for presenting this stuff. :-D

Agreed, and then some .... ;-)

Yod: Is there a black body available or just the red one? Best wishes.Yod

Yes, the standard black is available, Yod, though I must say I like the red finish (I already have standard issue Nikon D40, 5000 and 7000, it's a bit different...)

Excellent images - it's amazing how technology has moved on. Four short years ago I bought my 6Mp Nikon D40 and now an equivalent ENTRY LEVEL camera has a spec that not even the top of the range cameras of the time got near. Amazing.

Just three short years ago when I was buying my Nikon D40 I wouldn't have believed it was possible for an entry-level camera to have this amazing specification. Digital camera technology has advanced so quickly.

Mind you, my D40 still takes beautiful photographs, far better to my eye than my D5000 or D7000.

In reply to:

JamesCC: Many of you guys here sound like a bunch of sore losers!

Complain and complain. Is that all you know how to do?

What were you expecting? A Canon 5D Mark III with highest ISO1,638,4000? Weighing at 500g? Costing US$500?

The 5D III is one fine camera to me. And I'm a photographer. If a camera is good, I say it is. Whether it's by Canon or Nikon or whatever.

If it's not suitable, look for another model or even brand! Stop whining about this and that! There are tons of different cams out there.

why only 6fps? Why not 8 like the 7D? Come on, stupid. What else do you want? Why not include 1X features with the price of a 7D and weight of a 1100D?

Look at how much the III has improved over the II and judge. Don't go shooting rubbish from your mouth on what you want, rather than appreciate the many new features that have been given to you.

Well said, James. This looks like a fantastic photographer's camera, and I may just succumb. 22Mp is plenty of resolution -- I'm more concerned with overall image quality, particularly for landscape, and the great viewfinder and colour rendition of the 5D MkII are bound to be retained and improved upon. I'm a Nikon user currently but that may change soon!

Agreed. An EXCELLENT time to buy a MkII. It will hold its value quite well, too.

In reply to:

Joed700: Shame on Canon for throwing in the towel so early! 22 MP for $3500? What are they thinking? Anyhow, I hope they have finally fixed the AF issues. Canon bodies suck when it comes to focusing accuracy using lens with large apertures.

I'm with Francis. I'm after good quality - a good balance between resolution and noise, and believe the 5D MkIII will offer this rather than a 36Mp Nikon. (PS I'm a current Nikon user not a Canon 'fanboy').

(PS if you want really, really want megapixels buy the new Nokia mobile with 41Mp ;-)

mister_roboto: Wow- the comments on this post remind me why I don't read comments or participate much with the forums here.

You said it for me. I've all but stopped coming over to DP Review because of all the nitpicking and negativity.

I would be royally ****** off if I'd paid full price for the SD1 ... glad I didn't ... I'm waiting for the D800E.

In reply to:

garyknrd: I think this is a no brainier. With the price drop of the SD1 the new p&S will be priced accordingly.

DP2M: $4999.99
DP1M: $6999.99

At that price, I'll replace my old DP1 with one of each, I reckon ...!

In reply to:

Sdaniella: HDR image representations are closer to NATURAL PERCEPTIONS, albeit a flawed approximation of it, but non-manipulated image capture are the LEAST HONEST and FURTHEST from NATURAL PERCEPTIONS... after all, no camera, neither film nor digital, so far, can do it the way we see things... and they NEVER HAVE straight out of the camera, period.

This is why HDR is used, and it STILL can do with improvements, even though if done properly, is SUPERIOR to any image that do not go through any HDR adjustments. Avoiding HDR is IDENTICAL to avoiding 'dodge and burn' from the film days, or using different contrast film papers (as low as is visually sensible) for enlargement, etc.

Folks have gotten too used to accepting the UNNATURAL look of how cameras have been capturing images for so long, they FORGET NONE of it was ever TRUTHFUL in any attributes of representation, be it color, or contrast, with a very truncated looking Dynamic Range.

Yes, I'm inclined to agree with that. I have ADR on my Nikons and I tend to use that as it actually evens out dynamic irregularities and blocked up contrast areas -- HDR, when not 'overcooked' can produce an image which is more representative of the original scene, rather than less.

JacobJaapC: More and more DPR looks like an bashing site. These shots look to me like the first "snapshots". I have no doubt that in a few days time more serious shots will be posted on there site. Cheap bashing and putting people down is sooooo childish

Have fun all :-)

I'm afraid I hardly come on here anymore for precisely the reason you've raised. I tend to go to the Luminous Landscape and other sites where people seem to be better behaved and not quite as obsessed with technical details. It's not the fault of the DPR guys, but I am tired of seeing constant negativity when photography should be a positive art that engenders cameraderie.

I still use my DP1, wonderful landscape camera, and think Mr Yamaki's legacy is running a company brave enough to be different.
