You can find these folks in Yellowstone standing within ten feet of bison with their 18-55's and iPads.

1. Has anyone seen an actual tech report on the 6D sensor? What makes it different from the 5DIII?
2. We know Canon makes it own sensors. The 6D and other Canons have already had Electronic First Curtain Shutter. The pictures produced by Canon sensors have long made Canons the choice of some of the highest paid commercial photographers in the world such as Gilled Bensimon, Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino; please note I wrote "commercial" and their success is measured by how much money they make and how many spreads they get in the most prestigeous publications. Sports photogs chose Canon at the last World Cup. More award winning pix were done with Canon at the last 3 Windland-Smith nature photography awards I saw personally at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Yet Nikon's are better because DxO says so? I don't get it.
3. The smears on the Hassleblad Lunar is that it is a dressed-up Sony. So why isn't a Nikon D810 smeared for being a dressed-up Sony?
The -3LV focus capability of course is a marketing stunt by canon to give people the feeling they don't have the all out inferior product
If I was in the market, I wouldn't buy into this watered down sales-speak.
It sounds like you're selling Tupperware.
Yeah. I mean...long lenses? Who needs 'em? 200mm is plenty, just get closer. Good flashes and high Xsync speeds? Useless. Servo tracking for moving subjects? Phth – real men use manual focus, and the a6000 has peaking so that's even better!
The 70D has a vastly superior lens selection. Telephoto lenses >200mm, including primes. Fast tele primes. Long macro lenses. Etc.
The 70D has a 1-stop faster max shutter speed
The 70D has a 2/3-stop faster X-sync
The 70D has over double the shots per battery charge
If your 70D breaks, Canon will fix it with fast turnaround
The 70D has a robust ecosystem of flashes, accessories, etc., an ecosystem that Canon has a track record of developing vs. Sony's track record of abandonment
6D is a great landscape and general use camera. Many people don't need a sports/wildlife camera, or would prefer to have a specialist sports/wildlife camera (7D or 1D4) with higher frame rate than the 5D3. T
If viewing angles are an issue then IPS primary advantage over TN screens is that it has better viewing angles... And that's pretty much it.
A High-end laptop TN screens are good enough for image processing’s as well as mostly people always uses optimal viewing angle.
I went out looking at laptops last week, I looked at 50 or more. None impressed mt as suitable for a primary photo editing tool. Displays were mostly horrible, and all seemed to have one drawback or another.
Amen. It's so hard to find the right combination of power, size and display quality -- oh, and price.
High ISO? In the DPReview and IR studio comparisons the 70D looks pretty much the same as the D7100 (for example). I would shoot either to 6400 if need be.
Color? Canon seems to have nailed that one. Other people complain and profile their sensors to try and match Canon color.
