George Lepp was mostly comparing to 7D MkII. I'm not surprised the new camera beat that in many ways. I would like to see higher ISO shots also, but I will say that
a) with George, you have a Pro that looks at large images and cover quality images every day and he is saying this is better.
b) he is noting he is shooting more dof while maintaining shutter speed. for me in my Africa work, this is not a small challenge.
Yes, I would love to see some ISO 6400, f/11, 1/1600 sec. shots in flat light, but I will take any insight I can get at this moment.
I'm with Buddy. Right now, I'll take any info I can get. George Lepp's observations are very pertinent to me. I'm moving from a Canon 5D Mark III / Canon 7D Mark II to a Canon 5DsR / Canon 1D X Mark II. I was thankful to read his real-world experiences.
Here's my take on things. Right now, all of the pixel-peepers are frustrated because they are not getting enough laboratory-type experiments on the sensor. To this crowd, I offer this: most working professional photographers are actually into creating images and not spending all day setting up, running, and analyzing laboratory-style experiments on various sensors. They are photographers, not pixel-peeping analysts. I don't mean any disrespect to those who enjoy the science behind the microns, but Canon is beta-testing their new camera and the best way to get feedback or identify issues is to put the camera into the hands of people that do nothing but practice the art of photography. The time for feedback on sensor design and sensor performance happened a long time ago.
That's what cracks me up. Some people are always bothered by the fact that they are not receiving any in-depth pixel-peeping info during the last couple of months prior to a new release, but Canon is doing exactly what they should be doing. They are making sure the camera is functioning correctly and as an added bonus, they are generating some excitement along the way. When the camera is available to the general public, then and only then, will the pixel peepers get their opportunity to do what makes them the most happy. As for me, I will be out in the field creating images, and I can hardly wait!
