odpisan: Something is very, very wrong with USA. Police is shooting unarmed people, kids are shootning kids in schools, 20 (!!) army veterans make suicide every day, almost 70.000 people die because of overdosis yearly (increasing), in USA there are 50 % serialkillers of all serial killers on Planet Earth ... even God himself can not help USA.

If you do not believe me that USA is in very deep sh*t .. ask uncle Google.

Hey, borat, "historical" is not a proper noun.

You all have to remember that Peter the German doesn't like America or Americans and will never let an opportunity to bash them slip by. So when he posts vitriolic material about Americans, take it with a grain of salt. He is, after all, from the country that gave the world Adolph Hitler. Meanwhile his hero, Angela Merkel, is letting thousands of radical Muslims stream across their borders every year. Solid strategy.

Something is even more wrong with places like Slovenia, where obedient little socialists run around like chickens with their heads cut off watching their countries being taken away.

riknash: Standardized training would 've been a great benefit to ensure all are taught similar methods to handle potentially life threatening situations involving a possible weapon. What's problematic is that the standardized training recognizes the officer's situational vulnerability and teaches a rapid offence reaction to any perceived threat. The shoot first, ask questions later will always be the correct defensible response wherever a proliferation of weapons makes it reasonable to assume a weapon exists and would be used. One cannot assume an officer will make the correct decision when the trained response actively encourages a rapid, deadly response to any perceived threat.

Peter the German doesn't like America or Americans. What a shocker, good little socialist that he is.

The level of detail and sharpness this camera renders is phenomenal. State of the art as far as I'm concerned.

Aniell: The video should have been entitled LR tricks for beginners, would have saved me the time. And are you sure that's a temple? Looked like the Museum in Phnom Penh

Roland Karlsson: This is a cliche image and it is taken by lots of tourists in a staged photo session. Nothing really wrong with that. It is a bit sad though that one of the tourists's images wins a photo contest.

I remember one contest here at dpreview. It was an image from monument valley, I think. And it was an Indian on a horse in the image. And it won. Someone pointed out that this was a staged tourist image, taken by thousands of tourists, and that he had exactly the same image. That Indian guy came there almost every evening when the light was nice and the buses stopped there and maybe a hundred photographer took that very image at one event.

See what a little staging and planning can achieve :)

Other than that - yes this Madeleine is laughing stock right now. Wonder how she explains this to her friends.

Yes, Rick, be careful, johan is a self-appointed member of the Internet police. Don't cross him.

Bass-80: Yesterday I had once again a situation where DR mattered a lot. Inside a church...

You can either take photos at +0EV, then you are at ISO 800+ and have the inside paintings but not the nice windows. So I went to -4EV with ISO 100 and know that with the 80D I am able to push the shadows and have both, nice wall/ceiling and the nice windows.
Bracketing with a tripod is not necessarily a good idea inside a church.

And if a 6D II is unable to outperform my 80D in those those simple situations then it's a no-invest for me.

@Daspletosaurus

Uh-huh. Please post examples where you exceeded the capability of your gear.

Who said DR doesn't matter? Those little gremlins in your dreams?

memee_meen: Typical Japanese corporate, Take a very long time to realize they are going in the wrong direction. Just like Sony did but Sony is now back on it feets,

I think the problem with Canon now is their Foundry. Hopefully they can do something about it in the next few years?

Typical DPR pixel peeper. So obsessed with gear that making photos is next to impossible.

netscorer2: Canon is making the same mistake that doomed so many companies in this new era of digital innovations. Being a captive of it's own past success, it is afraid to cannibalize it's own carefully segmented market, so it is not adapting fast enough to the changing conditions. So it releases cameras that are fitting nicely in the artificial niches that never existed in the first place, but were forced on consumers with lack of other choices. Keep going like this, Canon, and you will lose everything. Look at Kodak, Polaroid, Blackberry, Nokia and countless other victims of their stagnant views. Few more releases like this and we can add Canon's name to the list.

@erictheviking That's the first time I've ever heard complaints about Canon's DSLR ergonomics. I've been shooting them since the 20D, and have the 5D MkIII now, and nothing could be further from the truth. I'd hazard to guess that the vast majority of Canon DSLR users would concur.

And who the hell buys a modern DSLR and bitches about the size? If you want the size benefits of a mirrorless camera, go buy one of those and stay away from any full frame DSLR. 1/4000th of a second is too slow! Waaaah! Why did you buy a camera with "gizmos you don't need?" Didn't you do your homework?

I would love to hear what it is you can't shoot at 1/4000th of a second. Bullets in flight? What? lol

M Chambers: So Utsunomiya Japan is "home of the L series"? Is that why the boxes say, "Made in Taiwan?" There's nothing wrong with Taiwan but DP isn't fooling anyone with this "made in Japan" claim.

Perhaps the boxes are made in Taiwan.

There's always something that ruins it for a pixel peeper.

murnahan: When I was young, I spent thousands of dollars on cameras, and the 35mm I went with was a Canon EF and later added a Ftb, plus Canon lenses, 24 2.8, 50 1.4, 100 macro f4, and a 200 2.8. Then first came auto focus and Canon changed their mounts and no new cameras worked with my beautiful glass. Well I didn't need auto focus anyway. Then film died and digital was in. I stepped into digital with a Panasonic DMC-FZ10 because I had always wanted a Leica lens because I could see the difference in pictures taken with them over all other 35 mm cameras (from seeing a monthly club contest with one member owning a Leica). I have been dragging my feet on stepping into a high end inter-changeable lens system, but now I have found my camera. Can use my old lenses and get some image stabilization, and prime lenses made by Zeiss, how can I go wrong. First lens will be the 55mm, but the old Canon 50 1.4 will do while I save a little more money.

Thumbs up, but film ain't dead.
