Still overpriced, bit that's Canon for you. They aren't very good at balancing price and features/quality. That's why their mirrorless range is a joke.

Dimit: ''Popularity'' means ''selling more units''. No? So,editor's error. Samsung is the most ''popular''....

Samsung actually outsold Apple at the high end recently. Apple's house of cards in the phone market has been falling.

situman1: What an Apple shill. As if these features are new and noteworthy. These clowns have the balls to remove the headphone jack just to make you use a stupid dongle or pay them $160 for stupid ugly bt headphones.

Actually people don't need to follow Apple anymore, their iPhone sales are down across the board. The ship is sinking.

Alex Sarbu: Nice article, very convincing, but where are the reasons why I should care about the iPhone 7? :-p
Oh, the last argument is so convincing: I should care because it's an iPhone. End of story.

The iPhone camera has been surpassed for two years now and I don't know why the popularity matters. Beats headphones are more popular than Sennheiser, I should buy them too? How about Vizio instead of Panasonic TVs?

There's some cool imagery because rockets are cool but that's as far as my enthusiasm can stretch for these photos, not sure why this stuff has now been posted multiple times on here though.

CaMeRa QuEsT: Nice to see that my D5500 has DR and ISO-invariance similar to the 5DMKIV. Still, you have to give it to Canon for achieving all this while splitting every pixel in half, as the 5DMKIV sensor has basically 60 megapixels. If only Nikon could come up with a competitive LV focusing solution to Canon's DualPixel...

Basically has 60 megapixels? That's not how it works.

beavertown: Well done Canon, once they get the sensor recipe right and incorporate their own innovations like dual pix technology, S especially N will be ducked big time.

I know Nikon don't make (most of?) them anymore but they still apply their own tweaks

endofoto: Canon still lagging behind Nikon and Pentax. Even crop sensor Nikon D7200 has a better sensor. However Canon is working hard, it will reach D810 and K1 level very soon, but for the time beeing Pentax K1 is the king, slightly better than D810.

Only in pixel shift, which is a great feature I admit

In your fantasy world where Nikon and Sony stop having sensor advancements of their own, sure

(unknown member): I won't be selling my D750 for this...
I thought if this camera looked awesome, I'd get it and get back to useng with my idle Canon lenses...but not quite.
(If I were a video shooter, I'd get is just for the great AF though.)

If you are a video shooter I would avoid it like the plague. Almost a 2x crop and a terrible codec for 4k.

vscd: Seems Canon is up on par again... in high ISO range it's way better than even the D810 or A7R2. Let's wait for the dynamic range test.

Also everyone knows the D810 isn't very good past ISO 12800, nothing new there. If you're worrying about such extreme ISO ranges you shouldn't be buying a D810 or a 5D. The Nikon D5 is the camera for you.

I didn't say it's unfair, I was just putting forth the opinion that it's stupid. It would be stupid to do it to the 5D III in that scenario too.

Trying to boast that the new IV is better than a camera two years its senior, that is optimised for lower ISO and has moee pixels to manage is stupid.

Wow grats it slightly beats a D810, a two year old camera with more pixels to deal with!

Nindy: I thought resolution was comparable between mk3 and mk4, I thought D810 showed far more resolution. All showed false colour in raw

The D810 is barely worse than any of the comparable cameras at 12800 and below.

Plus if you aren't using the comp setting you are doing it wrong.

On top of that, the D810 has the cleanest files at low ISO than any other camera in these tests, excluding pixel shift from the Pentax K-1.

But never mind, let's complain that the D810 is a bit noisy at 12800, an ISO you probably use less than 10% of the time. :)

(Let's ignore that the D810 is also two years old)

By the way, moire hasn't been a problem with my D810 or 5DSR ever. I prefer the D810 because it has less clean up needed in post as the D810 is quite a lot better than the 5DSR at all ISOs.

Compared to the D810, A7R II and even the 5DSR the IV is lacking, it's an odd camera. Overpriced too, but the 5D III has been overpriced for a few years compared to the competition so this is not a surprise.

grimlock361: Better high ISO performance than D810 or A7RII. This will certainly cause some to need therapy. Yes I know....I am blind. Just keep telling yourself that. I hope mystery mark...I mean DXO mark don't sore it high as it might cause a riot and looting. I was just getting used to all the canon bashing. Still not as good as the D750. . . . .which is a good thing. We wouldn't want the world to stop turning.

D810 is two years old. A7R II is one. They are both higher megapixel counts and the differences are minor.

The 810 was never a high ISO champ but it holds up very well against the 5D IV.

In reply to:

bildsee: The Canon bodies have an AA filter. Sony A7RII and Nikon D810 haven't.
Look at the historical scene and you will detect much more details with the non AA bodies dearly payed with very pronounced moire and false color artifacts (e.g the back of the picture frame on the easel). The moire is visible with the RAW files, only. But the "rainbows" are also visible in the JPGs.
So this comparison basically opposes the technology of AA filtered sensors with non AA filtered sensors. Or in other words, does it make sense to compare the resolution of a camera body with AA filter to a body w/o it?

(https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=canon_eos5dmkiv&attr13_1=canon_eos5dmkiii&attr13_2=nikon_d810&attr13_3=sony_a7rii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=100&attr16_2=100&attr16_3=100&attr171_3=off&normalization=full&widget=1&x=-0.5693745506829619&y=0.1931219905502753)

Saying the 5D IV looks much better than the D810 and A7R II is crazy to me. They are very close and considering the A7R II and D810 have substantially more resolution, you can add more noise reduction to make up for any perceived improvement on the 5D IV files noise wise.

That said, the 5D IV is barely better than the D810 until you push past ISO 6400. This is just another dated sensor from Canon.

I would much rather have a 5DSR than the 5D IV so that I have a huge megapixel count to clean up with NR or just switch to a D810 or wait for D810's successor.

In reply to:

Lan: Thank you for posting the studio comparison. Looking at the results, I think I'd like a 5D4 R, without the AA filter.

The D810 doesn't look much worse at all given both the age and extra pixels. With the difference in megapixels a bit of NR will make the D810 file superior unless at very high ISO where the D810 does fall apart (past 12800)

Albert Silver: Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed at the High ISO results. They look barely better then the 5D3 and slightly noisier than the Nikon D750, even after resizing.

In reply to:

Lassoni: It looks pretty good. Too bad it has AA filter, could probably capture slightly more detail without one.

If the difference in file size between a 5D IV and D810 matter to you maybe you should be upgrading other areas of your damn setup first.
