    Dynamic range comparison between the EOS RP, EOS 6D Mark II and EOS R

    I thought DR didn't matter anymore since Nikon introduced the D5 ?

    Tamron to announce two new lenses ahead of CP+ this month

    For some unexplained reason in my physiological make up I find the thought of Tamron prime lenses desirable (I have 45 and 85) but not Tamron zooms.

    Favorite Method to Clean Sensor

    My favourite method is to not bother. (I’ve found that the biggest culprit for dust / pollen / et al on sensors are zoom lenses, and since I’ve moved to 5DS I mostly use primes).

    IBIS and 100mp coming to an EOS R camera? [CR2]

    No it doesn’t. Before I settled for the 5DS I tried both s and sr together. Obviously from unsharpened raw the sr is sharper with greater contrast, and, if we’re going to be anal, occasionally some colour aliasing. Equally obvious is the fact that from an unsharpened file the sr will produce a...

    Canon EOS R body with more than 75mp on the horizon [CR2]

    Hmmm.....I suppose for portraits you won't be requiring infinity focus. Even so I wonder if you're real name is Harry Mudd ;)

    Why WOULD Canon make another SLR/DSLR now?

    No ! I predict that dslr will continue to be made until dslr and mirrorless are both replaced by a change in technology.

    Canon EOS R body with more than 75mp on the horizon [CR2]

    Let us know how you get on with it. It's now my most used lens with very good sharpness across the frame, even at f/1.8, but with a lovely transition and soft bokeh, and this characteristic continues when stopped down. I guess this is why, within the design, Tamron had to allow it to have pretty...

    Canon said to have scrapped at least one DSLR in development [CR2]

    Not sure the 5DS was ever intended for "fast action work".

    Canon said to have scrapped at least one DSLR in development [CR2]

    I agree that 30 + mp is enough for most of us, more than enough in fact. In comparison 50 mp is relatively niche, but remember that in all these comparisons we are splitting hairs in the difference, and I’ll split hairs by stating that the colour definition on the 5DS when used from a very...

    Canon said to have scrapped at least one DSLR in development [CR2]

    Have you used one ? It's an unforgiving camera but that doesn't make it bad. When used well the results are stunning.

    Samyang to announce XP 35mm f/1.2 soon

    Really, focus peaking ? I've found the magnification function is the only sure way, and then it's so awkward through the viewfinder I don't see it as much more practical than magnification of the rear screen on a dslr.

    Review: Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM

    Another endorsement for the Tamron 45/1.8 from me. Although very sharp it has the softest bokeh.

    Black & White

    @Click & dpc: many thanks. I love working in B&W, and often when going back to the colour version it can look aesthetically quite vulgar in colour !

    Is the Canon EOS 5DS series to be replaced by a mirrorless camera? [CR1]

    Well another piece of irrefutable evidence that you've provided - Sony believes that even a 42 mp sensor requires an AA filter option ;)

    Is the Canon EOS 5DS series to be replaced by a mirrorless camera? [CR1]

    Typical dpreview - begging a difference. Fancy showing the 800 and 800E with the same amount of sharpening, and 100% of .6 pixel is quite significant. Of course the 800E is going to look shaper - it looks brittle in fact. The way to test the two side by side is for the 800E to have no...
