I prefer my 44Mpixels (two 5DMkIII cameras )

It should be obvious though that lack of focus has a negative impact to IQImage Quality is about how clean the image is, how well colours are reproduced, etc. Low noise and high DR contribute in a very direct fashion to IQ.
That is part of it.
As has been pointed out before, but really shouldn't need to be, there are other aspects to image quality too. Like if the subject is in focus. Indeed, in many circumstances, that is as important as noise. I'm not the first to say, though I will repeat - moderate noise can be reduced by software, but a subject cannot be made to be in focus with any postprocessing technique if it was not so in the original image.
Focus has no bearing on the image quality - only the clarity with which subject of the image is captured. An out of focus bird at ISO 25,600 is just as noisy (image data wise) as an infocus bird at ISO 25,600. Focus cannot correct image quality issues.
It doesn't go to 11mm BUT it goes to f/2.8. The new Canon lens will not be so suitable for Astrophotography (which could benefit from 11mm). So what Canon will give with one hand will take with the other...Firstly, I said the 70-200 IS was worse than the non-IS. I've shot both. I never said it was better than the IS II. It's clearly not. I own that one.
Moving on, for those lamenting the f4..... Geez.... Ok, let's make it f2.8 and charge $5000 for it and have a lens as big as the old 50mm 1.0 or bigger.... Good idea.
What are the specs on the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8? Does it cost 5k?
It costs 2k. It doesn't go to 11mm. Which is I believe 1 20-25% greater field of view capability and extreme forced perspective. If Canon prices this at even $3500 (with the Nikon at $2000) It's because they know they can get it. At f2.8, you're talking about a ton more glass hence the higher price. It's the biggest full frame focal range at the wide end ever made.
He may think that LCD display that shows the menu is implemented on lens glass, that the canon lenses have a leaf shutter that causes the vibration problem and that the compressed raw images are stored in ... the Canon lenses...Given that you have failed to articulate any other functionality losses, I'm going to therefore draw the conclusion that the "massively compromised with severe loss of functionality" is in fact limited to one feature and one feature only: autofocus and only when using a 3rd party adapter for 3rd party lenses.
Terrible battery life, Sony's weak UI, shutter-induced vibration, lossy RAW compression...but you go ahead and draw what ever conclusions you want – facts have never affected them before, no reason to let them start now.
So if I use a Sony lens and not an adapted Canon lens, I won't have any of these problems? Sweet!
We're talking about systems, is that concept too complex for you or are you merely being intentionally obtuse?
Funny...There are portal devices like Hyperdrive...
Are these portals to another dimension?
There have been comments about RAW HDR shots - that was not the case. Before, I would scroll down to HDR, select it, adjust the bracketing, and begin shooting in RAW. I would post-process then combine the images in DPP. Now, when shooting in RAW, HDR is greyed out.As I have asked before: Can you tell us the before and after firmware versions?
I suspect that all 6D's are capable of this, but after some of the early units, Canon decided to remove this feature.
AdjustedInCamera and later, Canon, explained how I can do what I did before with AEB. Not that I shoot very much in RAW (it can look unnatural if overused), but I dislike loosing features from my camera. And I dislike Canon's denials.
Well ... yes there's that ... and... the fact that only ML developers could have an idea how to get - if it is possible - the firmware out of the camera (a dump maybe? just saying...)...No one seems to have thought of the 'other' possibilities...
The camera is a Chinese counterfeit...
or Canon accidentally shipped a new modified model with new firmware...
I didn't think of the former, but is could certainly be the latter.
Now if I got that camera I'd certainly try hard to figure out if there was an additional feature before downgrading.
