I'll be getting this lens, but use it for landscapes at 11mm , hell no.

(I don't want mountains to look like matchboxes) - Great for top down landscapes though I guess.

Is there.... a WOMAN here?  :o

In seriousness though this camera just keeps on giving. I got hold of the x1.4 and x2 extenders the other day and stuck a 300mm lens on the end of it. Shooting handheld it's sharp as anything I've ever seen. Even though it's through two teleconvertors.

A global shutter from Sony.

Sure: http://chrisgilesphotography.com/blog/pentax-645z-review-pt1-the-journey/

Sony Exmoor Sensor pushed three stops at ISO12800 at the top. 5D3, same settings at the bottom.

The 5Dsr pixel pitch is too small and everything people said might be a problem will be with this camera.

I want to rave about the camera but with no ISO examples above 400 shown, no access to raw files and no mention of dynamic range in the videos I can't invest in it.

Within three days of release, you'll know all about the ISO noise and DR.

If it's really great Canon will have some raws ready on announcement.

If ISO6400 is the same as the 5D3, I'll dump the 5D3 in favour of the r with a view to replace the 1DX with the 5D4 at the end of the year.

This much dynamic range will do, ta

I'm actually quite surprised it can do 5fps, although the all important buffer capacity is usually something that people only find out from hands-on based reviews rather than spec sheets unfortunately. If it has an ok buffer depth, say 15 shots (I base this on the typically less 60D buffer, not on calculations) then it seems pretty decent to me even for full resolution casual sports/wildlife and that's not taking into account faster crop modes.

5fps is pretty good. The 645z maxes out at 3fps and the buffer craps out at 10 shots.

This sets a precedent for the 5D4 though. If it's 24mp you 'should' expect 10fps. This falls into line with the rumors on that it will be a jack of all trades. i.e. a direct competitor to the D750.

Nice review, you spent a lot of time putting all stuff together. A couple of questions. Do you by any chance have ISO comparison between 645z and 1dx? And is there a way for 645z to shoot at smaller resolution?

P.S. Would love to see your comparison between 645z and 5ds soon )

I'm planning on doing it when I have the chance. I already updated a page with higher iso stuff on. I'l be getting the 5Dr, so won't be able to compare the 5Ds. :)

I can see the 5Dr and 5Ds being a Canon sensor with those limits. 6400 ISO might be Ug-ly though.

But the 5D4, if a Sony sensor, would be spectacular.

I'm already at 50mp with the 645z, but will probably go with a 5Dr to replace my 5D3 for the interim. Providing 6400 is comparable or better than the 5D3. I'm kinda happy with the 1DX ISO6400, so if the 5Dr has an increase in ISO it'll be a welcome swap.

What's with the CR guy saying it was reported on CR first?

There was nothing on the homepage for several hours. This post was but it was found on Northlight and Canonwatch were reporting it too.

Am I missing something?

They're splitting the line to pull people from Nikon.

I only have two questions:

Who made the sensor?

What's the dynamic range?
