I'd rather hear impressions of how a camera feels or compares to another camera. Asking people to judge DR based on processed photos is opening up a can of worms: not surprised the OP is getting flack questioning exposure and WB settings.
I have started a number of threads about the 5DSR since I got the camera - basically because I thought people would be interested
- a thread on wedding dresses / materials and moire
- showing iso 12,800 and comparing it to the 5D3 with NR
- hitting a max # of pano pictures in LR
- comparing it to the 7D2 (showing the cancelling AA filter effect)
- shots of an old estate here in Toronto used for weddings
- this thread which has gotten lots of negative response (no problem)
Again, I really have no issue with people that want to make legit comments - go ahead - I find it helpful and interesting what people have to say - you learn a lot by listening. Some people are harsh - that is fine - even if they delete all their own previous posts and pictures and generally take a negative tone with most posts they make here on POTN - there is always something to learn.
My conclusions about the camera so far are:
- it isn't cheap - probably should be priced at the 5D3 price not more
- the buffer should have been made bigger - especially since they are charging more than the 5D3
- the added detail is amazing - it really is - you can crop to your heart's content
- you can use the added detail and NR to get better detail in the darks
- you can use NR and 12,800 iso and get a better final image than the 5D3 at 12,800 (this was a big surprise)
- I have started researching and memorizing each of my lenses aperture and FL sweet spots because when I shoot with the 5DSR I really want to know where the most can be extracted (for example, I really wasn't aware where the Canon 24-105 F4 was good and where it was not so good - I know know it is an excellent lens from 24mm to 50mm from F4 to F8 - excellent - but above that 70mm to 105mm it is rubbish in terms of extracting what the 5DSR can do)
- moire has not been a problem
- i like the fact they enabled auto ISO with EC
- one of the reasons I know a lot more about the 24-105 is that I really prefer shooting with IS lenses with this camera - and thus I think Canon should think about releasing a fast IS prime for portraits - maybe a 85 1.8 IS
- because of cropability, a fast 85 1.8 Prime might make a great indoor low light sports lens
- with PS tools like Liquify, the added pixel density really shines and allows you to do very clean work
Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
