How long would it take a school leaver to drop a printer in its box. . .

tkbslc: 99.8% of tasks you can't even tell SATA and cheap NVMe apart. Hardly anyone actually can make use of 7000MB/s.

Buying a used R5 could be a risky purchase. How would you know how many times it had been 'cooked'.

Excellent advice, but you are such a natural in front of the camera. I think this goes a long way in producing a good video.

PhotoRotterdam: The image that ‘does it’ for me is the man with the binoculars under the tree. There is so much happening in texture and tonal gradation that the result is something which is hard to reproduce.

Of course you can take the image with the latest phone, or the latest big sensor full frame, but if you would hold it next to this one, you would not be able to reproduce it.

And I’m envious of the fact that you could have used that beautiful camera for a while, it is the only camera that actually invokes gear lust with me. Although the XD is the logical choice, this is a camera that you can fondle even when it is turned off!

Damn, just fallen out of my head. . .

Who cares if it stretched the rules. It's an impressive image that deserved it's first place.

Joed700: I just saw a video on image quality review of this lens with A7rIV...sharp across the board at f/1.4, even on the edges..good bokeh. Flare handling is a bit below the Batis 85mm f/1.8. The only problem (for some) is that this lens is way too sharp for a portrait lens.

Probably like a George Cloony, just too good looking!

Sigma, if your design team are twiddling their thumbs, how about a 'mini' 50mm F/0.95 with autofocus?

The L system badly needed this lens. Sort of like the Fiat 500 for Fiat's fortunes.

Very nice set of images, but not seeing any real 'pop' Is contrast lacking? I think some similar samples on the S1R would be interesting. . .

Amir Menahem: You need to be very stupid to expect this camera will be a replacement to a red/c300/fs5/7... why do you make this kind of reviews and making hype about heating?? Its making this website amateurish.
And Exploits Beginner photographers foolishness that don’t know really how the industry work.
Serious videographers work with video camera! Commercial only get photographed with pro video camera.
This is so lame of you dpreview. Im so sorry that i can see only pr stuff here that
Detached from reality!! Wedding photographer will be just fine with 1080p or the regular 4k. Interview also!!
Commercial beauty/fashion/food stuff will be using only pro gear.
Why no talk about how canon kicking the ass of all photography industry and made the best camera in the world and have the best glass in the industry (exept phase one and Hasselblad. Nothing come close to canon- the competition is officially dead.

Prudent to wait for the R5H . . .

You've missed one critical point, the EVF. The R6 is fitted with an 'old school' 3.69Mp resolution.

If you want to wean Canon DSLR users off their beloved OVF's of the 5D and 6D's, then the R5's 5.76Mp would have been a preferable sweetner.

Presumably if you rotate the mirror and front lens to and fro, you've just created a panoramic camera.

This camera is welcome news for us photograpers, whatever your brand loyalty. I thought the days of the 'budget' camera were gone, but this should bring new photographers into the fold. Well done Nikon. . .

Flashback: Not sure about the wisdom of the anti-aliasing filter with just 20Mp. The S1 reveals more detail.

So you agree, it can never be as sharp as the S1. . .

Impressive set of images from the 105, but colour saturation a tad too high.

What's up with that 50mm? Just doesn't look sharp or contrasty, against previous samples posted here.

No doubt it's a 16K wizzo, but you daren't hold it. . .

As a rule-of-thumb, every 10 degree rise in temperature, halves the life of a semiconductor material, including image sensors.

The good news: If you don't power up your camera at all and it will last for ever. . .
