Youre essentially paying for the software that costs the company money and time to develop. Programmers arent free guys.
Being a programmer myself, I agree
Have had my 7D for over a year without any problems. Shortly after it was released, I installed FW2.0. I don't get out very often to shoot and it worked OK for awhile. Last time out the 7D just stopped working and would NOT turn on. Remembered this thread and took out and then put back the battery and the camera came back on. I'm absolutely sure this is due to the FW 2.0 update. Haven't installed the newest update yet.
I'd be interested in the answer to that question as well. As a 60D owner I'm actually surprised at how similar the two cameras seem to be...I recently upgraded from the 60D to the 5DII. They seem very similar in most of the ways that I shoot. A couple ergonomic issues are different, but largely they are the same. For example, the AF seems identical. The metering on my 5DII seems a little more accurate. The key differentiator is the ISO speed and cleaner noise at higher ISOs, which benefits the 5DII (and 6D) substantially. Regardless of how the 6D performance shakes out, you should consider a 5DII upgrade path because the ISO performance is a real upgrade.
94..... well let me make a guess.. the 6D will score 81.QuoteNikon’s recently released consumer-oriented full-frame sensor DSLR, the D600, has just gone through DxOMark’s image quality evaluation tests. And the verdict is in: the D600 is an affordable camera that places a high premium on image quality, as it ranks just behind the top performing Nikon D800 and Nikon D800E. It is also a significant improvement over the high-end professional flagship DSLRs, the Nikon D3X and the Nikon D4. Here are the DxOMark test results for the D600.
"...I took the exact same shot with my 5D Mkii with my 50mm, 200th at f11, iso 200, mine came out 3 stops darker and contrasty. WTF?..."
I'm confused by the price tag. $2099 USD is the same as £1291 GBP (UK). But over here in the UK they are selling it for £1800 GBP which is $2920 USD !!!!!!
That doesn't seem the least bit fair?! I would buy this camera if it was £1291.
is it only because of bad canon sample images... or is the D600 so much better?
speaking about sharpness...
I'm a Canon owner, fan , and prospective buyer of a 5DIIi, but this review, from a reputable source I have been following for years, gives me pause. Right now the images form the Nikon are just better. Tell me where I am wrong? http://www.fredmiranda.com/5DIII-D800/index_controlled-tests.html
