Robemo: Interesting. Even the much smaller GH5 MFT-sensor performs better (DR). Lot's of speculation here why Canon decided for this sensor, but I think they made a big mistake by doing so. At the time of the introduction of the 6D they could get away with it, but times have changed and the competition in this price range is now fierce. This is a camera without any real strong points or it must be handling (the flip screen). But that's personal. Handling is important but what use is it if all other important performance characteristics are just middle-of-the -road or mediocre (AF, DR-IQ, metering, video, ..).

In itself that is nothing new. Not a single Canon sensor performed better than EM5 in 2012 when it comes to DR. Only in 2015 or 2016 they did better. What is very strange is that somehow they decided to go back to theor 2009 old technology. Which isn't all that bad. What people seem toforget completely is that Canons higher ISO was very good at everything. It is the base ISO that suffered.
But okey: now that we have 80D and 5dm4...why on Earth did they go back. Why is it with Canon that they make castrating their amera's a sort of speciality when it comes to the sub-2000 segment at least. This is not 2005 anymore, there is Sony now big time. Nikon and when it comes to smaller sensors how about Panasonic, Olympus Fuji and again Sony????

If DxO confirms this....then what an enormous failure this is! I was sure we would get DmarkIV performance. Hope it ain't so, but things look bad...

GReat shot Erez. With global warming affecting our northpole even more so than the lower lattitudes I realise I need to fast in order to even get some shots like these.
Thx again Erez, always nice shots. Inspiring too!

Jorginho: To me there is only one possibility: fullframe. Because every other format will have this "good for its size" thing around it. Not "best IQ we ever saw". If they want to enter now, draw enough attention in a world still completely focussed on sensor performance than that is the way to go.
A second reason: least competition. It is only Sony. As of yet there is no Canon around. And they can let people use their lenses on their cams. Nikon has a vast following of FF users who will be reluctant everstill to go to Sony. So that is a solid userbase I think (I haveno numbers) which is also a well to do userbase. People who can buy A D810 with some good lenses well...They can invest in a good mirrorless system.
It won't be an easy task bu we can say it is now or never. May be, after FF shows to a success they can go for an APS-c format cam that will inherit the good name of the FF mirrorless.
With such a competitive market as APS-c is, making a profit seems a difficult task.

It is the least competitive segment that is available. Only to Sony now when it comes to mirrorless. How lcrative it is, I don't know indeed but the number of lenses developped for FE rather E mount is probably a clue. Not a small market. No low price segment yet very good development.

No I disagree here. MF is way too expensive, restrictive in its lens choice, restrictive in shooting speed if you need. The GFX-50 is what: 2,5 times the price of the A7RII. Not massmarket stuff. On top of that its IQ barely distances itself form the A7RII from what I have read. So that is now against it since it costs so much more.
A7RII IQ DOES distance itself considerably from any APS-c or MFT cam.

retr01976: Shame Olympus and Panasonic didn't migrate to crop. The images from these bodies are starting to look incredibly long in the tooth compared to even the cheapest crop bodies. I have always been incredibly fond of m43rds, the fanastc lenses, speedy focus and IBS, but the image quality is now generations behind looking rather "digital" these days...

Yeah as by some miracle most reviews rave about these dinky toy camera's...

Let's hope they get the shuttermechanism right this time. And the sensor. And a whole lot more. Saying superior this and that...well...I saw nothing superior in the 1 series so that remains to be seen. But: for sure Nikon can come with a very good cam. But it is not easy to eclipse the likes of A7RII, EM1.2, XT2 or GH5 to name a few.

iae aa eia: Well, it sounds reasonable to me that a Chinese company could achieve that. That's what China's for. To make companies from developed countries---that have been the ones spending more in development and quality of production, in safety, in labor costs, etc---look like greedy companies in the eyes of folks that don't mind where a product is produced, the story behind it or behind who makes it, and all the effort to make the wellbeing of each employee a very high priority. Chinese companies are the antithesis of all that. I don't buy Chinese products (unless I have no choice, of course) and Trump is right when he tries to review trade agreements.

Iam sorry but so called "trade agreements" are not trade agreements at all. They are investor rights agreements. They are there to circumvent laws, to bypass environmental laws that are too strict according ot multinationals in some countries and they are certainly not meant to protect any workers. they tend to be highly protectionistic too. If people would actually be aware of what current proposed trade agreements mean there would be a huge protest. Which is why they are kept secret, in order not to create opposition to them.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: We need Thom Hogan to translate this. As for Americans preferring cameras that are more expensive pre-tax, hardly suprising since sales and VAT taxes are so much higher outside the US.

No we don't. He assured me that bigger sensors were not the way to go, relativey ( I wanted a 40 x 30 mm sensor for instance back then) way too expensive due to low yields etcetc. This was in 2014. So that does not mean he is always wrong. I like what he writes. But he is not some visionary where we can rely upon. Just wait and see. I agree short term figures like these do not say whole lot.

Jorginho: Short version; about the best price/performance ratio any DSLR gets you on the market.

So I used "about". So there are more contenders, but not a whole lot more in my book.

Jorginho: You just need to see the very small pic when you browse through new articles and new some seriously good photography is available too at dpreview. As usual, it is from Erez. Everything is done well. I need another 100 yrs to equal that.
Oh and isn't Canon really needy when it comes to IQ.....I am very impressed with 5DMark4 images either in this sort of shooting or landscapes. And the system has the lenses to get you the most out of it. Unlike some other systems with some serious letdowns but let's not discuss those just be in constant awe with marginally better sensor right..
I am eager to see how well that 6dmark2 will do.

Anyways...looking forward to the next article from Erez and may be dpreview could have an interview with him and in it a lot of shots by him over the years so we can may be see how he has developped his shooting and he can comment what he thinks about it?

Erez...might be true. Yet we have a few exceptional photographers and lots of those who aren't there (yet). Like me. But we're doing our best! Here some NLCs from two days ago which at least my GF was thrilled about (heavy crop from a Hires shot with my Em1.2 )...

I think it is oke. So who knows...I will never give up and keep on trying. Your pics are very inspring so thanks and hope to see more of them!

Just an extrapolation of my current skills, my development over the past few years.

fyngyrz: If you are willing to go long exposures, the US offers nice auroras on occasion:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/fyngyrz/albums/72157621795614108

The US offers GREAT aurora's. If you live within 500 km of the Canadian border or so the displays do not need very long exposures at all because the magentic lattitude is as south as it can be ovcer there (in the northern hemisphere).

In reply to:

OlyPent: It's a good shot. The texture of the aurora is preserved pretty well. For those who have never seen aurora, it can move fast and often has noticeably defined textures. Using a low ISO and long exposure often blurs this out.

Where I live in The Netherlands aurora's are rare ( 8 times per yr on average) and the big displays I saw are very different from these ones. Some green on the horizon but usually big red/orange curtains above it into zenith and sometimes beyond and they weren't fast moving at all. I never saw fast moving aurora over here. It might be that the northern Aurora's are causes by coronal holes whereas aurora's at my lattitude (52 N) are caused by coronal mass ejections in general but I don't know. I even saw a corona over here and still I think I could expose for 10 seconds and it would stilll be sharp. Pretty static.

Never knew it was a part of Micron. I knew Micron mainly for their PCs in which they were competing with Gateway2000 at the time. Since I owned my own Computer Business I always looked at what they were doing etc. Later on it became clear they sold chips and memory. they quit with PCs and now with Lexar...Just no longer profitable. I personally use transcend and Kingston. I had Sandisk but these failed on me (albeit with quite a lot of use). Kingston is really well priced and at least with my EM1.2 4K 137 Mb/s video as well as GH4 these cheap 64 Gb card (30 euro's) work flawlessly!
Lexar...I heard about problems with these card lately in the latest cams...So was not into them at all anymore.

Edmond Leung: People already made mistake investing in Samsung cameras and lenses. Will they make a similiar mistake in Sony?

@E LEung: Sony is not Samsung. Sily comparison.
@Cyberstudio: a lot has changed since 2014. You should read a little There is something like a GH5 for instance. A9 is not a videocam. Just ike NX-system is not an action/sportssystem.
