No. That is not what or how our eye is able to see. If you focus the window your iris will close and the subject in the room will disapear in the dark. You have to focus it and the iris will become wider again and you will recognice the details in the darker room while the window burns out again. It is not possible for the eye to set focus and sensitivness on both. One can SEE this in extreme lightchanges where it needs time for the eye to regulate down or up.
The point is just, that in usual

Yes. It is. And thank you. Talking and writing about made me aware again, what a great wonder creation is.

Just take a look at the shadows of this ISO 100 picture from 5DSR:

https://www.dpreview.com/sample-galleries/5251445179/sigma-14mm-f1-8-art-sample-gallery/4580637789

The original Canon image embedded in the RAW denotes a perfect exposure to keep the highlights at the left side. But it is not a realistic picture as our eye would have seen it at the place. Processed with ACR, the minor shadows recovery required (not HDR, only to get a realistic look) causes the right side to turn into ugly noise.

Not a photographer error. Not a scene requiring multiple exposures. Only a Sony sensor (the 5D4 is better, but is not yet there) and you are done with a perfect single photo. With the 5DS you are only left with the option to not print a huge poster from it.

"Photography" means "paint with light". In no way a camera which can record a gradient of 14.5 EV of light will not be a much better tool compared to another recording a mere 12 EV. And yes, at high ISO/sports all current sensors perform similarly. But many people mostly shoot at low ISO, using the full sensor potential. Remember: "paint with light" (each time the ISO doubles, the sensor is tuned to saturate with half the light).

Weird, I just googled Adorama. Their Google search says "same day shipping on Canon 6d II. I went to site and acted as if i was ordering...it still says pre-order, but as I clicked to put it in my cart, it said "in-stock." However if I had moved forward with checkout it was back to pr-order status and so forth..................

B&H still shows "processing" ...

As to DR ... here's an old interior / exterior image that I shot with my Kodak SLR/C. I'd probably PP it a little bit differently today, but hopefully you get the gist.

As a real estate photographer, it is frequent to run into the fact that you have two VERY DIFFERENT light levels interior vs. exterior. Outside can simply be "Sunny 16", while inside can be anything from "something less" to Dracula's Cave (see opposite room, i.e. both rooms started with same ambient level).

Absolutely wrong. It depends, of what you need and want. Please let me explain after your next sentence, that was:

And yes, at high ISO/sports all current sensors perform similarly. But many people mostly shoot at low ISO, using the full sensor potential. Remember: "paint with light" (each time the ISO doubles, the sensor is tuned to saturate with half the light).


Here we are. At high ISO ALL sensors in reality PERFORM DIFFERENT in case of noise and color rendering. Your statement shows that you never use high ISO.
Compared to two further stops in IQ at High ISO (for example ISO 6.400 to 25K) for those, who need it its a much bigger advantadge than 2 stops higher DR. Painting with light does not mean painting in base ISO, only. Nor does "full sensor potential" mean "highest possible DR. That is the point in this whole discussion that makes me helpless.

Where do you know from that "many people mostly shoot at low ISO" ? You might do, yes.

I still would shoot my excellent 30D if I would shoot at low ISO. DR was excellent enough for my needs. I switched to 5D II because of the better low light performance only. Up to 3600 it worked fine. But I came in permanent troubble at ISO 6400 (because banding started). That was the only cause, why I switched to 6D. Excellent banding free high ISO with acceptable noise up tu ISO 12K. NO other camera offered this 5 years ago. Not Nikon D700, D600/610 not Canons 5D III nor 1DX.

The success of 6D proofed that many photographers indeed shoot mostly at (much) higher ISO than you believe. This is the cause why a camera like 6D was so successfull and could be sold with (still today) top reviews over 5 years now, while top DR bodies have to be exchanged all 2-3 years.

6Ds -3EV center AV made it possible to shoot at ISO 25k using AF and nailing the pic. Absolute impossible with 5D II, III or any earlier body. This is why I am sad, that Canon did not go further their own route and added -4EV to 6D II.
The last testresults seem to show, that 6D IIs ISO 12K and higher catches up with 5D IV and maybee 1DX II.
This is fantastic. And in my opinion much more important for most shooters than a 14 stops DR, that they will never use, need or see. For those who need 14 stops DR there is a great number of cameras "better" than 6D II already available.
Why must 6D II have it, too? And loose the advantadges it has, wich are very important for many (in my opinion most) shooters?

Painting with light does not only mean bright sunlight only. There is moon- and starlight, backlight, sidelight or the low light of a little fireplace, too. Things you can not shoot with or you would destroy by using a flashes. You would destroy it in many cases by pushing the dark areas, too.

Painting with light does not mean, that it is not allowed to paint with hard contrasts, too.

Have you checked the DR on MFD cameras?

Does that mean that the Fuji S5 Pro is superior to the 645 or ZD in all regards of IQ because it has a higher DR?

Where are they at 12k?

Hell, how do they push shadows? At base ISO?
Does it mean, they are worse tools, because they do not reach 14,5 stops DR AND do not offer High ISO?

Why would anyone photograph a scene with such ugly light?
I'm all for better sensors, but that is a prime example of when not to shoot. All the DR in the world won't make bad light into a good photo, not to mention a perfect one.

Well, I think it might not be cgarcia who got it wrong, but actually you - do D750 or 5DIV lose any high ISO advantage, just because they offer better low ISO DR?

It all boils down to a single fact - Canon screw-up big time with the 6DII. For absolutly no apparent reason, they did not follow the pattern of 5DIV, 80D/70D, M5/M6 sensors.

Whatever you speculate about as a potential reason, I just don't care. In the world of all those nice advancements, I am not here to spend 2K on the camera having sensor performing the same or even worse than its 5 years old predecessor. With the 4-5 years of product iteration, it simply means 10 years with mostly zero advancement in a sensor area. Not acceptable, done on purpose, end of story.

And please - save you rudiculous half an hour postprocessing experiments of how to cure the situation to yourself - it does not help the case at all - your low ISO performance will not match the above mentioned cameras and that's just it. Live with it. And no, bracketing is not always an option.

I am quite OK with a recent situation - Canon just pushed us to the 5DIV. We will trade it giving up on 24-70/2.8 II initially, so that we can afford 5DIV. But in no way, in a photo club or between the young ppl here, is 6DII going to be suggested as an entry into FF. Not in my book.

In fact, it might be already happening - lurking in the biggest photo store here for almost 2 hours, watching sales persons and ppl trying new stuff, Canon is the last thing being suggested, as well as the last thing between the youngsters to look into. Well, just my experience anyway.

In the long run, Canon is going to pay for the recent situation more than they can admit now. Of course they will still sell to the photo-clueless masses, but surely not to those, who develop in the photo discipline further, expanding their ecosystem over the time ....
