So true. It's kinda' all just bells and whistles from here on out right?

Just like TV's.... they were able to makes leaps and bounds at first. but now, the technology is to a point where we can only take small steps forward and it's not such a big deal anymore. to most people anyway.

I agree, the DR, shadow recovery, resolution and high ISO really were the last things for Canon to tackle for still photography at this point, and they seem to potentially now have all they need to put together one killer package in the future. Most likely from here on out, it will be more automation and ergonomics/usage features.

Just imagine in the future if Canon creates a 50mpx, 14fps 65 all f8 AF cross points, 200 raw burst, wireless control and access, wireless flash control, full touchscreen capability (vs the limited features the 1DXII has), clean 25600, usable 51200, -4EV focusing, a good built-in HDR mode (which could be done easily now), etc body, there will be little to request at that point for still shoots. Video has more tweaks yet, I would assume. That kind of body could also eventually herald the end of APS-C, but as long as budgets dictate many purchases, that won't happen for a long time.

Im looking at some full size files right now. Pretty blown away with what I see. Looks like I will be eating a crow sad which  :p

These 25600 iso files are excellent. I think they got it. Looks really really good.

I have one on order......yaaaaaaay..​....I still a canon fan boy :-):love::love:

I can't say I agree re marketing 'hype'. Changing to the d810 is the best thing I have ever done, the picture quality, ISO and DR is like night and day in compassion to my 5d3. Worth every cent


I have a 5d Mark III and a 30d.... the ISO and DR are "night and day" different. You may have significant gains but to say that it is "night and day" different is totally inaccurate.

Lol, excuse me while I refer to the text book to clarify exactly in scientific terms what constitutes the appropriate parameters to determine night and day and therefore deemed an 'accurate' comparison

...relax buddy they're just cameras ;) btw do u have a d810?

I'm genuinely amazed at you ordering one after how you slated other cameras in favour of the 5D3. I hope it fills all your expectations. Still no decent photos out yet but hope you make the right choice.

Night and day are opposites. Therefore the expression "night and day" implies that the things being compared are opposites.

What is the opposite of a camera? ?? I don't know, maybe a stalk of broccoli... ?

Well, maybe not quite opposites as the nights of the full moon have a portion o day spilling over. :):):)

I've just tested, and I think you'll find a rectal thermometer and a stalk of broccoli feel quite similar, so hardly night and day.........
