AllOtherNamesTaken: DPR's interview with Canon says the DR is the same as 5DM3. Sorry folks.

Max native ISO 6400
5 Fps, no mention of crop mode FPS increase
1/200 flash sync
1080/30P max

"Meh"

Chances are it will outsell the D810 ... and that's what really matters at the end of the day...

In reply to:

ThomasSwitzerland: I cannot help. Those samples do not communicate anything what the D750 should be.

They could be taken with almost any camera, even 1” sensor or smaller, by any snap shooter.

I trust <dpreview> as a prime source. But on some of their sample galleries they communicate only one thing: Nonsense. Or said in a diplomatic way: Much room left for optimization.

Everyone buying & using the camera is not going to be doing so under optimal conditions...

These sample images are very good... and give you a fair indication as to the pro's & cons of its IQ ...

You are being overly critical of these images for no rhyme or reason... Do you expect pro grade images each & every time a camera is reviewed...? Personally I prefer real world samples under a wide array of conditions to assess a camera's prowess... not the best images in a controlled environment...

I'm hoping for a 1D XXX ... 50 MP full frame pro body... :)

a l b e r t: After looking at all the LX100, G7X samples, I hereby declared that the winner is the Sony RX100 III. No contest.

@kangoo1707 - Imaging Resource for some reason has only uploaded the G7 X images using its "fine" compression setting... What they should have done was capture the same test scene using the Canon's "Super Fine" setting... You can tell from the file sizes as well... the G7 X is around 5.5 MB per image whereas the RX100 III is around 12 MB per file...

Sony may use a lens with all the bells & whistles... but the RX100 III's image processing is useless in comparison to Canon's... so any lens sharpness advantage you see is more or less nullified...

RX100 III is horrible at rendering fine detail... Even iso 1600 + is a blotchy affair... Only main advantage with the RX100 III is its 50 Mbps video... as far as day to day IQ is concerned the Canon is definitely better...

maboleth: Noise looks more like a film grain, very very nice. Also there's no banding in the deep shadows. Bravo Canon, 10 light years better than 7D!

One needs to ask the question... do we actually buy these instruments to primarily push shadows... or for the overall versatility & feature set of the machine...

Does the D7100 & co. look spectacular at 12800...? Or are they at least "above average" by critical standards...? Canon has done a fantastic job with this camera... now all the naysayers can do is find fault and fabricate criticism... in which case this camera is not for you...

In reply to:

steelhead3: Since they are using a Sony sensor, will the DR of this nice looking camera surpass the Canon dslrs?

Based on past experience between the brands its safe to say that the Canon will have superior high ISO performance (both RAW & JPEG) compared to the Sony RX100 III & Panny FZ1000

Regarding the fast f1.8-2.8 lens... Sensor size plays an important role here... so its unlikely to beat the 7D II at high ISO... but may come dangerously close to superseding the renowned 7D, 60D & 550 - 700D ...

In reply to:

The Davinator: No 4K video. Same rehashed sensor tech from more than 5 years ago. Looks like Canon has been asleep the last half decade.

Better DR is true... but better noise is highly contentious not to mention speculative... Canon may use "inferior" sensors according to dxo & you ... but the reality is their image processing & noise reduction algorithms are still the best...

The sensor is 1 year old... Five years ago none of the manufacturers even had 20 MP APS-C sensors...

Dimitris Mitrovgenis: PEOPLE this camera rocks.I love it.It is strong,weather sealed with a new AF system!!!!And not to mention the manageable 24.3 mp. This is the best all around camera to this date.Small light and powerful.
It is better than the 5D mkIII in all aspects.Get serious.
this is the one that tickles me so far.

Oh please... the 5D III is almost 3 years old...! It damn sure had better be better than the Mark III ... had the two camera's been "equal" the Nikon might as well have been relegated to the bargain basement section...

lensberg: Is it true that there's no expandable storage for either phone...???!! No memory card ---------> No sale...!!

You have to be a diehard Apple fan to buy either of these to phones... With new offerings from Samsung, Sony & LG ... these new 6th gen Apples already seem rather antiquated...

But for extended sessions of Full HD recording, I'd much rather prefer the option of memory cards... 128 GB sounds good in theory... but with dozens of apps and the OS itself... that 128 GB is going to shrink considerably...

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1984 comments in total)

The 5D Mark III is an all-round class act... definitely superior to the D800 / 800E / 810 in low light...

As for DXO... well I suppose the average Nikon fan needs their egos propped up from a "scientific" point of view... thus its existence...

Its amazing how many pro's use Canon... despite DXO's claims of Nikon's vast sensor tech prowess... at most major international sporting events white lenses still reign supreme... with perhaps with a thin speckling of black glass here and there... :)

On article Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom (205 comments in total)

Waiting with bated breath for the Canon SX60 HS... It needs to take the crown from its predecessor and its rightful place as the undisputed king of all super zooms...

Alternatively Canon also need to enter the 1" sensor market... perhaps with an interchangeable lens system like the Nikon 1 series... and a fixed lens RX100 / 10 style compact / zoom...
