Imagine a D800 with an EF lens mount released by Canon and called 8D. What would you think about it?

Yet the other datapoints LOOK good. Can we verify at least two cameras 5D3 and D800? Getting second opinions on them would be good.A wrong answer on one calls every answer into question. That is how a engineer views it. And, I have done plenty of scientific reports for NASA.
Generally speaking, if you want to criticise someone else's results of a scientific method then you do so by doing your own experiments that prove your point. And yes, I'm willing to bet that the method DxO use to generate the raw numbers that goes into those calculations and the method of arriving at the calculations in that table is a lot more scientific than the process of saying "That 0.0 is wrong and because that 0.0 is wrong all other results lack credibility."
The difference is that my reports were checked by a person, not just something kicked out by a formula in a spread sheet. If the spread sheet calculated one wrong, its not up to me to verify all of them.
His chart claims that a D3100 has 0.0 read noise!Well, that comes from one data point at ISO 3200 which obviously is wrong. Did you already send him an email with the correct value?
That should give a clue as to accuracy / credability.
I have a bit of inside info on this subject, can't really say too much but they're "resolving the issue of how to alter the test so that the 1d X doesn't beat the D4"
...I really feel the 5D3 gives more "bang for your buck" vs the 1Dx.Unless you need 12fps.
$200 for an adapter is ridiculous. It's basically a glorified extension tube.It's not even glorified. I bet that other manufacturers will deliver at 50$ or less with quality fully satisfying 99% of the users.
I'd like to know whether the new EF-M lenses will fit on a DSLR. The 22mm F2 would be great on a crop body.
The EF-M lenses will not be able to focus on DSLRs due to the difference in distance from the lens to the sensor.
That's why they need an EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter - not because the electronics are different, but to maintain distance to the sensor from the lens.
I'm waiting for the EF 600mm f/4L IS Pancake lens.
Personally, I'm holding out for the TS-E 12-1200 f/0.95 L IS pancake....
or the 8-1500 f1.2L H-IS macro with 1.4/2x built in extender
