Time to start talking about what features we'd like to see in the Canon 5Ds Mark II. :lol:

What would you add?

I would like to see better high ISO performance. I'd be willing to give up a few megapixels for that.

I agree and I think a lot of us are in the same boat. I fully recognize there is a market out there that loves the idea of higher resolution (landscape photographers, commercial photographers, studio photographers, and more), but I really would like to see improvements in low light performance and increased dynamic range.

Without a doubt, Canon is making better and better cameras, but it sometimes feels like they are just riding on the same technology train rather than developing an avenue of truly innovative sensor technology.

That's not the point of the 's' line of cameras - 1Ds, and now 5Ds. They're all about resolution and low-ISO image quality (the jury's still out on DR, but, so far, Canon's efforts in that regard are all as bad as each other).

If you want ISO and low-light performance, get the standard line (5D3 and its replacement). The 5Ds is not the camera for you, but literally every other camera in Canon's lineup is. There needs to be something for the landscape/studio crowd too - you can't have a one-size-fits-all body which is optimal for every application.

I understand where you're coming from. I love my 5D Mark III and as a landscape shooter, I may very well pick up a 5Ds R. You're absolutely right that Canon needs to have a camera to fit different styles and there is no one size fits all camera body. I guess I'm just a little concerned about all of those pixels crammed into a full frame sensor. I'm a long time Canon fan and I'm pretty sure their engineers know what they are doing, but in past models where the density was packed in like this, the end result was not very impressive. I sincerely hope my concerns are unfounded and this camera is all that it is cracked up to be.

:lol:

Well ok:
better dynamic range
better high iso performance
wi-fi integrated with complete remote control
live view with phase detect
7 fps since, at that point, with the progression of the electronic should be possible
better buffer, since more fps, but with limited buffer make few sense
Articulated LCD
Touch screen

Much better DR (14-15 stops minimum, possibly more if Sony also manages to increase theirs).
80MP.
Base ISO of 50 or even 25.

Don't really mind the rest of the features.

Since most of this won't come true, why not just add to this.

-80MP
-ISO25 to 256,000
-1/10,000 shutter speed
-Carbon fiber body
-Sony Sensor DR
-7-8FPS
-Dual CF Card slot
-GPS/WiFi/NFC/Bluetooth

It might as well have the ability to shoot itself and sell the photos.

yes, trade a few megapixels for ISO performance

As referenced in another thread I am a "callow" worshiper of megapixels  :p and will get this camera but I'm confused at Canon's refusal to include an articulating screen.

No step up in resolution (50Mp is far enough for me), but:
- Dynamic Range at low ISO "a la Sony"
- Native low ISO : 25, 12 expanded
- Articulated main screen
- A little second screen to view one zone at 100%


Canon 5D MkII + Sony A7 + 24x36 & 6x6 B&W film cameras .
CV 15 4.5 III | TS-E 24L II | FE 28 2 | (50+85) 1.4 | 135 2 | 70-200 4.0L | a collection of old Zuikos + FD + Adaptall + AI-s + M42
