The kids really show up well, and considering all the dark suits that the guys are wearing, that is a difficult shot!

Good job!

The Sigma Artisans blog has posted some real world work from the brand new Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art series lens.

From Sigma

We invited Jess Baumung, a Toronto-based running and music photographer, to test out an early sample of the latest Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG HSM | Art for a few hours and see what he could do. No big budgets or fancy post-processing, just one photographer, natural light and a few local Toronto runners in a real-world shoot.

I agree, great shot!

Large group shots are a challenge and this one turned out really well. I like the photo as is, with your minimalist amount of post processing and keeping the photo more true and natural. Nice job!

The damage would be obvious and speedy, and may well be bigger than what Sony, Fuji and Panasonic are chipping off from Canon's market share.

Except that Sony has been losing market share to Canon, and Fuji and Panasonic's ILC market shares are small enough to be irrelevant.  Which pretty much invalidates your argument.

Which I'd like to see, at least a bit. Just to wake up the sleeping beauty/dragon/whatever. Competition and racing is always good for the customer. Look at Intel for example. They had a decade of basically very incremental upgrades and amazing profits. But they slept on their laurels perhaps a bit too long and let themselves be a bit surprised with Ryzen/Epyc offerings of AMD. I know that this comparision is not very precise as camera world is much more diverse than just two brands. But still, I think you get my point.

It's quite an apt analogy.  Much better than, for example, all those who shout KODAK...NOKIA on these forums.  While those two companies are examples of failure to predict/react to a paradigm shift, that's not happing in the ILC industry now.  Rather, the situation is as you describe for CPU chips – incremental changes.  How's Intel doing now?  Did AMD 'surprise' offerings spell doom for Intel, or did Intel react?  Personally, I don't follow the CPU market, but I will say it's been a long time since I've seen a computer without an 'Intel Inside' sticker on it. 

But for some reason, a small subset of people here on CR (who some may call 'trolls', and not without reason), assume that Canon will not react if necessary, and thus that Canon is doomed.  Like 5 years ago, when Sony's/Nikon's better low ISO DR and Canon's 'horrible' fixed pattern noise (that was soooo evident when you pushed shadows >3 stops) meant Canon was doomed.  The thing is, as you correctly point out, the market isn't forcing Canon to react, the market is rewarding Canon for their choices.  Still, how is Canon's low ISO DR now?  Well, the 80D has better low ISO DR than the Nikon D5...and the Sony A9 has noise at low ISO.  And Canon was and remains the market leader.

It looks like the same old 9 point AF system, if what's viewable in the mirror from that front view is anything to go by:

Right now, I'd  not read too much into that.   If you look at the 5DIV box there's a disclaimer saying 'all images are simulated'. I'd not be all that surprised if that's the case here as well.

That was one of my first thoughts as well. Hopefully that is the case and we do see a DPAF, 19 pt system, which I think is an excellent one.
