It seems D4S is now a worthy competitor to 1DX.
It seems you're jumping to conclusions…
From the original article in which those comparison pictures on NR were posted: "The following pictures are all 100% crops of straight out of camera jpeg fine."
So the real conclusion is that the D4s has a better JPEG conversion engine than the D4. BFD. If you want to draw any conclusions about IQ, you need to compare RAW images.
I'd rather send it in to Canon for a sensor swap with the 1Dx ;-)
If you want real gain in sharpness, go with FF + L
EOS C300 Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade
Isn't that basically a new camera?
I would have to disagree and my opinion is that the 70D sensor and capability is vastly superior to 5 year old APS-C technology in the 7D and 6 years in the 500D. I switched from a 7D to a 70D because I do get much better high ISO performance. IMO, my 6400 performance with the 70D exceeds 3200 on the 7D and the AF is much faster. Anything above 3200 on the 7D was, in my opinion, unusable. When working at low ISO, the older sensors hold their own. All due respect to Neuro but when was the last time you shot anything less than an up-to-date 1D series? For better low light performance without a new body, go with large aperture prime lenses?
I've used the a Yashica SLR film camera before getting a 500D then after 3 years, went for a 6D. I won't go back to APS-C again after that. The shots I get from an FF and an APS-C is too different. Aside from that, high ISO capability for an FF is too amazing compared to APS-C. For events, an FF is really a joy to have.
You are comparing a current camera with 3+ year old technology. The ISO capability has no connection to full frame or APS-C, it's a function of sensor age. The 70D would have given you as big a bump in ISO capability at nearly half the price and allow you to continue using your APS-C lenses. I could compare a 5D classic with a 7D and conclude that APs-C is superior in many ways.
