It's got engaged to the 7D II

For the record, I disagree with the "Sigma is clinical" assessment. I've seen a lot of images that look wonderful from that lens. I lean towards the Canon mostly because they both look great and the price difference is significant.
A couple of very atmospheric shots there, very nice.
Cheers Graham.The Loaming Hour on the River Stour, Eastern England, just up stream from Flatford Mill made famous by the English artist John Constable.
Some highly amusing banter going on here. Just my two cents to the 'must shoot RAW' snob line, for which I am sure I will get flamed...
I think that probably for many posters on this forum, the use of jpeg is the more sensible choice. The file sizes are a lot smaller and you have to be fairly decent at photoshop before you get any overall noticeable improvement in final picture quality with RAW. Just coming from looking at the 'Show us your best landscape picture' thread where some peoples best pictures are IMO not great (a tree branch in flat light). Not intentially trying to knock those people or their pictures per se but there is little evidence they have sufficient post-processing ability to ensure the careful, artistic and selective use of what are essentially extremely heavy handed techniques such as de-noising, sharpening etc necessary to improve on most DSLR's in-camera processing. Having out of the camera useable jpegs also might get round the 'death by editing' syndrome, where all objectivity goes out the window in favour of a faux-HDR, totally over-processed look. I should know, I've been there myself!
I have not used original 5D, but some friends use and the noise in the shadows is very ugly. Any Rebel model currently has more like colored noise film, while the original 5D has horrible colored spots.
If I was British, I would be insulted that they picked my country for this ugly abomination.
This is what I'd love to see in a Canon body, especially with the 6D center point:
Hasselblad True Focus
that would be great
