Yes, I noticed that was conspicuously absent from the list, although I'm pretty sure it is the best selling camera in the world.

Seriously, EVERY review I've read and every comparison I've looked at makes it clear that Canon's lineup of sensors far outperforms Nikon's in high ISO performance.
The 1DX is probably only barely better at high ISO than the D4 and it also, I think, has a weaker CFA.
Canon isn't worse at high ISO now but far better???
I wouldn't say the Canon is "far" better...things are limited largely by physics at that point. In real-world examples, I've noticed more color noise from the D4 at ISO 25600 and 51200 (probably because those settings are digitally amplified, vs. Canon's primarily analog amplification). Outside of that very slight difference, the two cameras are definitely comparable at those levels...you would be hard pressed to notice any real differences in most situations, I think.
Wow. This might go head-to-head (if not surpass) Nikon's current lineup of legendary low-light performance sensors.
Next generation of crop sensor starts now. Kiss the venerable 18mp goodbye.
Without any negativity, isn't it a little bit funny how several people don't have time for a short color test, yet found the time to write a message to inform us that they don't have time for it?
.Lol, I just opened the page, then closed it again.
Hell, even being retired I don't have time for that.
People are actually sitting there dragging those chips around?
I'm going out and get some pictures!
International corporate finances are complex, they have operations all over the world. I guarantee that currency fluctuations (which continually change) play some part, but thinking that end price will change due to that is simplistic.
This is no doubt correct, but my point is: where was this sentiment when the True Believers were defending Canon prices as clearly being due to the high Yen to low Dollar exchange rate?
Some general sharpening advice:
...high pass sharpening is great for bringing out edge detail, and personally I prefer to mask it in for areas that I want to draw more focus/attention to (i.e. the eyes in a portrait)
Neuro, you had me up until that "ship is sailing along fine..." stuff.
Not trying to single you out, because I know you know better and I know you aren't guilty of the sin I'm about to attack. But, I can never figure out why otherwise intelligent people think a multinational, multi-billion dollar, profitable company is stupid.
Far from it. My point is that Canon's current strategy is working. They are doing their R&D, developing new cameras with improved features, releasing them into the market, and those cameras are selling like gangbusters. I don't understand why otherwise intelligent people are clamoring for Canon to do something different, and be more like their competitor that isn't doing as well as they are in the market...
...We heard all of these arguments about the D800, and the 5D Mark III is apparently outselling it by a wide margin. Now the D7100 is the best thing since sliced bread, and while is does seem like a well-spec'd camera, I suggest we wait and see how well it sells, compared to a camera Canon may or may not release, before we declare victory for Nikon and claim Canon 'had their ass handed to them'.
Agree to disagree.
