    I love the comments that complain about no 4K.

    These cameras are so awesome!

    They are the best cameras ever made, ever!

    I've pre-ordered one of each on Amazon and B&H!

    These cameras are so lame!

    Canon have completely lost the plot by making useless cameras!

    Only a cretin would buy one of these cameras!

    Getting the most out of those will require some seriously steady hands (or a tripod, or very fast shutter speeds)!

    Needless to mention some pretty fine glass, but then the jump in linear resolution over 36MP is only about 18% (Bayer, no AA filter). Meh... :biggrin:
     
  10. Not enough MP, must be 60MP before I will consider one. :tongue:

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Horses for courses. Lots of people love the 36mp sensor in the D800 family and A7R or the theoretical 45mp in the Sigma DP models and I can see its appeal for some types of photography. I guess this Canon will appeal to these same folks. The 16mp sensor in the Df is a sweet spot for me, but I also love the 24mp sensor in the D610/D750 and A7/A7ii and RX1 more for its downright frightening DR at low ISO than for its extra resolution.

    While it doesn't hold any appeal to me personally, I won't criticize those who really want 50mp in this camera any more than those who love the far less versatile DP Merrills and/or Quatros.

    For inquiring minds, the Df/D4 sensor is one of the few that Nikon has that is NOT made by Sony...

    Don't care about Canon but when Sony releases a 50mp I am in. Sony assures me that their new camera will make me a better photographer.
