    You could have said 'let's agree to disagree' without intentionally misrepresenting what I've said. Sad...

    Is the EOS 7D Mark II the last in the 7D series? We’re told that it is [CR1]

    Just because I don't miss 8 fps doesn't mean I want to drop to 3 fps ;)

    All new 24mp sensor coming to the next Canon ILC’s [CR1]

    Now that I've posted those comparisons... Before buying I obsessed more than I should have and I reviewed many more samples than just Imaging Resource and DPReview, and that included some landscape (distant foliage) samples. I did discount two examples where I thought user error was at play...

    And last one, vertical lines from the resolution chart. In this case I bumped the sharpening to 40%/1px. At 40" I can see the small difference between them. The 5Dsr (middle) is sharper but is also aliasing, and the sharpened 5Ds (right) is the best. If we're splitting hairs one could point out...

    Same story with this one. At 40" I cannot reliably tell them apart. At 80" I just barely can. The part of the label above this is one of the samples which convinced me I wanted the AA filter, as it had full on moire on the 5Dsr but none on the 5Ds.

    Now some text from that scene. Again 35%/1px for the sharpened bottom sample. I have a hard time telling them apart at 80". I can't reliably do so at 40".

    Now the fabric section from their studio scene. In this case I sharpened 35%/1px based on the red sections. I didn't feel like 20%/1px cut it. (Expected with lower contrast detail and the color red.) A bigger difference in favor of the 5Dsr! But still the same detail resolution, and still no...

    All new 24mp sensor coming to the next Canon ILC’s [CR1]

    Here's a section including the horizontal test lines. At 40" there are slight sharpness differences with the far right sharpened 5Ds sample being the sharpest, indicating a difference of less than 20%/1px between the cameras. Horizontal test lines are fully resolved on both. (As I said, the 5Ds...

    Here's a subsection of numbers from the above. I thought at 80" I could see a slight sharpness difference, so I wondered what it would take to equal that. Bottom section is 5Ds sharpened 20%/1px.

    Reminder: for me on a 4k monitor (at least) images display larger than 100% on this forum. I find this odd but if you download them they should "pixel peep" normally. On a 4k monitor 100% should be roughly equivalent to a 40" print. On a traditional FHD monitor it will be roughly equivalent to...

    All new 24mp sensor coming to the next Canon ILC’s [CR1]

    This last part is false, and that's surprising considering the source. Image sharpness and resolved detail are not only different things, lens designers sometimes find they can trade off one against the other. (Not sure how often that comes up with CAD and modern manufacturing, but it came up in...

    Is a brand new 32.5mp APS-C sensor from Canon on the way? [CR1]

    If this is true, does it mean I can register on a Sony forum and complain about Sony recycling 24mp sensors? That's it! I'm leaving for Canon! :ROFLMAO:

    Is the EOS 7D Mark II the last in the 7D series? We’re told that it is [CR1]

    I shot my 7D for years and loved it, but like you I never jumped to the mk II and went FF instead. To my surprise I do not miss the frame rate, but I do miss the buffer size. Aside from that nothing lost. If I have to crop the IQ is just as good. If I can fill the frame it's far better. (With...

    Is the EOS 7D Mark II the last in the 7D series? We’re told that it is [CR1]

    Most 7D2 owners need weather sealing. Which means if this rumor is true they might jump, but it won't be to Sony.

    All new 24mp sensor coming to the next Canon ILC’s [CR1]

    The MTF50 point is not a measure of "resolution" or "fine detail", i.e. extinction resolution. It's the traditional point chosen to measure perception of sharpness. Edit: lpmm at MTF10 is traditionally the measurement point for total or extinction resolution. Also: comparing numbers at one...
