I'm a little surprised that no one has started a topic for the Canon 5Ds and 5Ds(r) under the Camera Sample Photo Archive Forum yet.

"Sony actually fixes things customers want to see fixed" is not just "a response to LonelyBoy's post" it's a continuation of the hijacked theme of this thread:

"yea! sony!"

comparisons between brands will always be made, but the vast majority of posts in this thread have been about Sony and the DR boogie man. Most without even acknowledging the SONY shortcomings. Just look at when the new A7 was announced, two or three pages of talk about it without even comparing it to the camera/topic at hand. All the off topic talk has driven away any discussion about the 5DS/SR, so don't act like my post is out of place, at least I'm talking about the brand and camera the thread is dedicated to.

I'm already sick of the A7R2 worship. Everyone is taking at face value that it will work perfectly and quickly with adapters and it will have no glaring issues once in wide production and in consumers' hands. Half the threads here are now just filled with breathless exclamations of the superiority of a product that none of the posters has touched, let alone used extensively, and yet wholly trust "oh yeah, it focuses Canon lenses just as fast as native". As if marketing material is never misleading or optimistic.

I'm extremely skeptical of their focusing claims. I think at absolute best it will focus as fast as native FE lenses. That would be cool, but I think focusing sucks on A7 bodies. I have an A7II with the hybrid focus and while I applaud improvements, the AF on my 5D3 is just a joy to use. The A7II, not so much.

I think it also depends on your shooting style. I like moving around and change focus points often. That is a nightmare with my A7II. If that's less important to you, it might be fine.

I know it's coming soon! For me, I just haven't had the time to get out and use my 5dsr yet. I'm hoping I can get to Zion natl park or Grand Canyon soon; this is monsoon season and the skies are just awesome this time of the year!

Anyone have sample images yet? Specifically with high quality glass like the Zeiss Otus 55, ZE 135 APO, 16-35 f4L IS, 70-200 IS II and other modern optics as opposed to older and less sharp lens designs.

the Sony A7RII isn't shipping yet so you'll probably have to wait a bit.

:D

if you download the full size image and zoom in you can see crazy detail and clarity.

Great detail but it sure highlights just how shallow the DOF is with that lens, even at f8. Thanks for sharing.

EXACTLY what i was thinking. at 50 percent the DOF looks more like what i would expect, but once zoomed in it is ridiculously clear just where the plane of focus is on the guitar head.

thanks for posting, bob.

Don't forget that as you are zooming in , you are simultaneously changing the DoF:D

I can't wait to see some shots with the MP-E 65mm.

Here's a pixel of a fly's eyeball.

I mentioned Zeiss ZE and other Canon mount lenses on the 5DSR. Just to clarify, although I'm sure you're jesting :-D

Just testing the high ISO of the 5DS R on subjects that it was not marketed to handle. :)

Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla) (formerly considered as a subspecies of the tricoloured munia Lonchura malacca atricapilla), also known as black-headed munia, is a small passerine bird. This estrildid finch is a resident breeding bird in Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Hawaii.

Before 1995, it was the national bird of the Philippines,[2] where it is known as mayang pula ("red maya") because of its brick red patch on the lower back which is visible only when it flies. (This distinguishes it from other birds locally called maya, notably the predominantly brownish "mayang simbahan" (tree sparrow)[3] which is more common in urban areas.)
