You guys might be right, but I'm happy with the 80D. I took mine to Yellowstone and liked the results. I'm not very good at post processing. I just do the basics. I'm sure these could look better but I'm pretty happy:

You cant compare dr, iso, or iq from ff and crop. They are in 2 different leagues, always will be. Ff will always beat crop in those 3 areas.

I opted for the 80D over a used 5dmk3 or 6d because i wanted the extra "reach" of a crop. That said, i might pick up a 5dmk4 once the used prices are reasonable. So in several years.

Regardless I'm happy with the 80D. The 24 MP is very useful!

I shot the whole day in RAW, I could have shot JPEG, but I like editing photos. FWIW, I've included the original straight to JPEG conversion unedited RAW file. Tight crop, and decent amount of adjustments in LR. Yes, you can do the same with FF, but for a crop to be able to be cropped this much isn't a bad thing!

Lot of people have some pretty unrealistic expectations of the 80D.

Why would Canon make a crop that was just as good as the latest FF camera at a third of the price?

From where I sit the 80D is a very capable camera and is really worth the money!

Has any one direct printed from this camera to a pro printer?

Capturing the photo and actual IQ are sorta two different things.

The 6d is only 300usd more than an 80D. For a high percentage of people the 6D focus system is good enough.

The 80D image quality is something where a person must understand it's limits in certain types of light conditions. This is the case for any format.

IQ comparison is not apples to apples in the crop world. This is where still photography the competition is tough. The nikon 7200 is a much better crop sensor body for stills for a DSLR. For slow moving subjects the Fuji last generation 16mpx sensor produces much nicer files in low light than my 80D. However my 16mpx fuji bodies would not capture a lot of what I can do with my 80D.

I grab whatever works....... However for stills that are slower moving I appreciate the fuji alot.

That is the point though.

People are trying to compare the 80D to the 5D Markiii or Mark iv (and complaining about it). Different animals. If that's the kind of camera you need than get the FF 5Dx ... Don't compare it to a crop camera and complain that IQ isn't as good in low light.

I now know the "Limitations" of the 80D.

Comparison of other products is normal when it comes to anything. This is when we compare something to a person's benchmark.

Funny how a many years ago people would incorporate a FF with Crop sensor as a working combo. Now it seems more people are into multiple brand camera systems.

In fact I documented a car show with a Canon FF and Fuji body for the telephoto needs. That combo worked equally as well when I shot the same event with 2x Canon FF with heavier 70-200 telephoto.

Another point is that there are other crop sensor camera's that are much better in low light compared to Canon's newest crop sensor. The Sony A6300 and Xpro2/X-T2 are examples of how other manufacturers are better in IQ in low light.

My next Crop sensor I will be purchasing very soon is the X-T2. IQ and low light performance is without a doubt better in the crop sensor world when comparing to my 80D.

The navigation of the 80D is quite refreshing due to the swivel touch screen. The thing about camera gear is that they all have a place in my gearbag. They are not created equal obviously....much more specialized in utilizing every camera's strong points. The weak point of the 5dmk2 is servo mode/fast action. However it's substantially better in IQ compared to my 80D. The 80D locks on focus capturing things my 5dmk2 would struggle.

it's all about compromise in some form or another.

FWIW, this shot was bumped 2 full stops in LR. Shadows raised to 100. I didn't apply any NR just to see what it would look like. It was a sloppy shot. Wasn't paying attention to my camera settings and the resulting image was way to dark. Nice to know dark images can be saved.

+1, I really like the improved DR. Raising shadows works so much better than on my old T3i.

I simply couldn't resist and got an MP-E., reveived it yesterday. Didn't have a lot of time, so I could only go out for a short while to take a few shots. This lens is so much fun!

My first victim was a grasshopper that was sitting on the driveway:

Image quality is way better than with the EF-S 60mm + tubes. All photos are approx. 3:1 except the grasshopper, which is 4:1.

Went to a concert last night and used my 80D for the first time.
