PWPhotography: Well, when 33x44 MF sensors are reaching to 100~150mp, FF sensors will get to 60~80mp and likely will show up first in A9r. Sony is leading miles away from competitors in sensor R&D and manufacturing.

"bigger but not sharper" Did you even look at the file sizes? Sony 82 MB Raw Canon 63.9 MB Raw.

To my eyes in the samples I linked the Canon is sharper with a smaller file size.

Here is another where I think the Canon is sharper, plus your claim that the Canon files are larger does not seem to be true if you look at the file sizes on the chart.

I did not mention DXO since they do not reveal their methods in my opinion and I believe my own eyes instead of what someone tells me to believe. I said in some places on this site. I saw many such places where the Canon was sharper but here is one for instance:
https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr13_0=sony_a7riii&attr13_1=canon_eos5dsr&attr13_2=phaseone_xf100mp&attr13_3=pentax_k1&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=100&attr16_2=100&attr16_3=100&attr126_0=2&attr126_1=2&attr126_2=2&attr126_3=2&attr171_0=1&attr171_1=1&attr171_2=1&attr171_3=1&normalization=full&widget=565&x=1.032991043062295&y=-1.1136542855136315

No matter how it is made it is still 50 MP and seems to have an advantage in sharpness in the comparison charts on this site. Heck there are even places where it seems sharper than the new Sony shift sensor.

Why do you say Sony will be first to 60-80MP?

Canon already has 50MP so not much further to go.

In reply to:

Dan Monroe: Is Canon still living in 2010? There is no excuse for not having 4K video capability in 2017.

All of my friends and family have 4k TVs these days. 1080p videos just doesn't look good on a 4K TV. (not as bad as playing 480p video on 1080p TV, obviously) Even my 96-year-old grandma wanted to know why the videos I sent her looked "fuzzy" when she played it on her 4K TV.(a "cheap $900 one that I bought her earlier this year)

Yeah, Blu-ray quality looks "fuzzy". HMMM.

Just curious, how did she play the emailed videos on her 4K TV?

vadims: Meanwhile, Canon reported increases in compact camera sales in their GX line of cameras during Q3. Just sayin'.

Yes, Canon reported a 31.1% increase in profits and Nikon a 7% increase in projected profits. Notice these are PROFITS. Canon and Nikon are the ONLY camera companies to show a consistent profit in their camera lines. Maybe decisions such as this and Canon's product mix are the reason.

In reply to:

entoman: I own a 5DS and it as an exceptionally good tool, but it would be foolish to pretend that it is as good as the D850.

Two years ago the 5DS was the best high-res camera around (IMHO) but the D850 has better rendition of fine detail, more dynamic range, less noise at high ISO, a lower base ISO, faster burst rate, tilting screen, better AF, AF fine-tune, and a significantly higher magnification OVF.

The 5DS has (IMHO) significantly better ergonomics and a marginally better lens range (for my purposes). It also has user defined custom modes, which seem to be lacking in the D850. But the D850 wins ground due to its exposure bracketing button and other features missing from Canon cameras.

Both machines are capable of stunning photographs, but the Nikon can meet challenges in sports/wildlife/action photography, and in low light, that the 5DS simply cannot match.

@entoman Thanks, I had not seen that. I followed the link and looked at base ISO. I got this:
Canon 5DS R at ISO 100

Here we can see the tables are turned with the 50.6-megapixel Canon 5DS R capturing a bit more detail than the Nikon D850, however the Nikon image is crisper with higher contrast, though sharpening halos are more evident. Noise levels are roughly similar except in the deep shadows where the Canon is noisier. Both cameras produce pleasing color, however the Nikon's is again more saturated and warmer.

@entoman The D850 may indeed be better than the 5DSR (or not) but I was struck by your comment that it had "better rendition of fine details". It may, but I must have overlooked that comparison because I do not find it anywhere on DPR. Where did you see the resolution comparison?
Thanks

LWanTeD: This made me realize that I've never, EVER, thought about who is holding the camera of photos I've looked at.

I've been living in the US for 10 years now (coming from a 3rd world country), and I confidently say that I believe that liberals create new problems while trying hard to solve problems that don't exist.

@IGlad I absolutely love Gordon Parks' work. It is worth noting however that the work you reference is from 1956....61 years ago. A lot has happened in the last 61 years including things like the civil right act ;-)

OHHH a keyboard warrior. I am soooo afraid ;-) It sounds as if you are one of those clowns running around with black masks on to hide their identity. I am neither frightened or vulnerable. Actually, I live a quite comfortable life and am very capable of taking care of myself. We still have the second Amendment here unlike your little island. I said yes the Nazis gathered names of the Jews, nothing about a website. Let me break the news to you since you seem to be totally oblivious to history, the Nazis DID gather the names of the Jews (that means the answer is yeah). They did much more than that. They also put them into camps, worked some to death, and killed many more. Acknowledging history happened is NOT the same as endorsing what happened. I am the one who thinks collecting people by ethnic group is WRONG...remember. You are the one who thinks it is good to put people into groups...remember. You don't even know which side you are on. The fascist here is YOU make believe tough guy!

Post the entire quote you liar. Where did I mention a website? I said what I said in my post...which is TRUE.

Another thing, you claimed I was moderated or some such nonsense. I have received NO message or email regarding any of these posts...because I spoke the truth.

I never compared a website to the Holocaust, to say so is a lie. What I said is putting people in ethnic lists (how do you know something lacks diversity unless you count by groups), attacks on freedom of speech (violence on college campuses to keep conservative speakers away), and nazis fighting fascists in the streets (Charlottesville) was reminiscent of 1930s Europe. Those are all FACTS. Those have actually happened in this country recently. If you know anything about history it IS what happened in the 1930s. I think if an original comment is removed, the entire thread is removed. If my FACTS are mediated this time, it says more about the person doing the moderating than it does my statement.

cybertec69: This progressive diversity experiment has destroyed the West. Diversity, these progressives make me laugh, all this diversity nonsense has done nothing more than destroyed cultures and soon civilizations.

@SVCguy "It has made cultures stronger. Look at the US and any super-power, even in history" I know that is what you were taught, but nothing is further from the truth. Diversity of OPINION makes us stronger not physical diversity as it is taught in school. Throughout history sizeable minorities in countries have led to conflict. As far as your claim about super-powers, North Korea is supposedly the least diverse population on earth. China has more diversity that N. Korea but still is very homogeneous. Russia is not diverse at all. The former USSR WAS diverse but Russia is overwhelmingly ... well Caucasian. So which of our super-power enemies have benefited from "diversity"?

@sh10453 The level of ignorance IS amazing and it is YOUR ignorance. "People are created equal" is the biggest load of crap EVER. Some are tall, some are short, some are white, some are brown, some are healthy some are handicapped. That does not sound equal to me. All people are created equal UNDER THE LAW! Get it right. That is a huge difference from equal or equal outcome.

roustabout66: How can it be class leading reliability when it has not been in the marketplace enough to test real world longevity? Many drives promise reliability but.....

@Grahan Austin My day job is running the IT dept for an insurance TPA and I assure you those words don't mean squat. Until it has been tested for a few years the jury is still out on reliability.

By the way, 550TB/year is also the standard for Seagate nearline (enterprise) drives so this is nothing new.

Is your definition of racist someone who does not agree with your position? It seems to me that most positions here are that race should not matter. Who are the racists here, the ones who want to count by race or the ones who do not?
