I'll never buy a Sony camera so long as they use a lossy compressed file format. Maybe that's just more of the high standards crap...I dunno. But, there it is.
You'll never buy a camera that's relatively cheap ($1,300 for the A7), can use your lenses, and solves the problem which you have spent countless hours making...hundreds?...thousands?...of posts about because of a file format that maybe, on rare occasion, might result in an artifact, even though otherwise the camera completely eliminates the noise and artifacts you're so upset about???
I'm done...I'm out...no more SoNikonSuperMegaDR threads. I can't help these people. They need therapists, not sensors.
I don't even believe there are yet 100 posts on the subject. If I've written 50 posts on the subject, it would be surprising. You guys are just as crazy with your wild exaggerations and twisting of words...anything to preserve your pristine view of Canon. Which is fine...you can keep seeing your gear and the company that makes them however you like.
BTW, I never asked for, nor needed, your "help". You don't even seem to understand the fundamental underlying concepts if you really, honestly think that the 70D has more DR than any other Canon camera on the market. I don't think anyone else here agrees with you on that point, and certainly no one anywhere else on the net, reviewers or forum goers, would agree with you either. I think you've twisted Photographic DR into something that handily "proves" (in your own mind) that Canon is right up there with their competitors, when that is the farthest thing from the truth.
However, I'm not really here to prove anything to anyone. I'm just...ticked off and frustrated. Canon's core technology hasn't changed in years. It's been fundamentally the same since I first got into photography, I've been longing for them to deliver a powerhouse landscape camera since before the 5D III was even announced (basically, since I first learned about the K-5's then-magical DR, and not long after that the D7000's DR, which got all the limelight, but in actuality was never as good as the K-5's I don't think.) We have two weeks until Photokina. I guess we'll see the REAL state of Canon technology then. I hope for a 1-2 stop improvement in DR somewhere. I hope for a fundamental shift in sensor technology, how it's fabricated, how it's designed. I expect...well, nothing significant anywhere...really. I truly HOPE I'm wrong...
I don't get much chance to go out and photograph landscapes anyway. When I do, I rarely get the kind of lighting and weather I want. Good landscapes are always a couple hours drive away at least. Figure I'll just focus on what I can do in the limited time I have...and what my current gear doesn't drive me up a wall fiddling with NR for: Birds, Wildlife, Macro, Astrophotography.
