I picked this camera up on Fathers Day as a present to myself. Coming from a t4i I am thrilled by the many new features this camera brings. I really love this camera and have already gotten some nice shots despite not having a lot of time to get out shooting. The only thing I am having to get use to is a bit of a silly one. For whatever reason I have primarily used my left eye. When I do so with this camera my nose rubs on the rear wheel which is rough and uncomfortable. I am retraining myself to use my right eye and the problem is solved.  ;)

Great review Dustin.

I would agree that a 6DII would be this same camera but w/ a full frame sensor. However, they'll probably remove the built-in flash and articulating screen, as they did w/ the 70D vs 6D. I'd be happy w/ that though because the 80D does have a lot to offer.

Excellent review!  One thing:

Quote
The 70D has a smaller 20MP sensor, but the EOS M3 has a similarly sized 24.2MP sensor

The sensors are all identically sized APS-C.  Sensor resolution is what differs.

Except DPR, none of the reviewers/users have issue with 80d focusing system. I guess, they just rigged it to fail.

Have any of the non-DPR reviewers performed the same focusing system test with the 80D as DPR?
Biking test. Lot of people did big subject moving towards camera. Not the same person or bike which is not possible for others. Justin did the same test with his kid running towards camera. Brian did the test with his kid riding horse. Michael did in his comparison with a6300. It performed like a6300. Few other users on DPR with similar kind of test. What complex test do you think DPR tested?  By the way, 80d  price is still very stubborn. Looks like long wait to see decent price drop.

Awesome review!  I love reading all of Dustin's reviews.  They seem to be the most practical reviews I've seen.  I was thinking about half way through "Man, if only all of this could be in a 6D2!".

What complex test do you think DPR tested?  By the way, 80d  price is still very stubborn. Looks like long wait to see decent price drop.

If I understand correctly DPR had their camera static, on a tripod, with full 45-pt AF mode on, and just tried to see how the camera tracks the subject without any aid. In the real world people usually use a zone mode and try to move the camera to keep the subject within the zone. From my own tests with the 80D the all points mode is not very reliable, and gets pretty easily distracted by background things if there isn't a large separation in focus distance. On the other hand, with more "real world" tracking use cases it performs well.

And to be fair, even the mighty 1D X II appears to suffer from the same distraction in 61-point mode. I'm not sure if Nikon or Sony cameras are just much better with this. It is a bit baffling to me - the camera should know well that if it had a lock on a foreground subject a moment ago, even if it lost the subject for a moment, it should still be there at roughly the same distance, not suddenly much farther away.

With articulating screen, af at f8 and built-in flash (why not??), it would be a perfect addition to 7DII!

I find it a perfect addition to my 5D's.  Now if only we had a full frame with an articulating screen, sigh.

+1(Billion) It's about time Canon gave us top IQ combined with maximum flexibility.

Remote shooting sounds fantastic, but you can't always hold a camera and a phone at the same time, basically you're going to end up mounting the phone to the camera, at which point you're adding a ton of steps and complications to something that could be accomplished as fast as spinning a dial.
