Rebel IQ Better Than 7D

Sat Dec 19, 2009 3:51 am

Hi, this is very very interesting, The rebel beat the 7D image quality, Canon really dropped the ball here.

I think you will find it was Darwin not Canon who dropped the ball.
Think you should do a little more reading before dispersing the most widely denounced review i've ever seen on the net...
Start here..

Some good info here

To quote the last review..
"The bottom line is that the 7D is Canon's new king-of-the-APS-C DSLRs - clearly the best yet. "

If the Rebel was better Canon wouldn't sell any high-end cameras and I'm sure they'd be bankrupt by now!

Don't believe everything you read! Best way to get a camera review is go test it yourself. I don't believe a word until I've hand-tested myself!

Jak,I did not state the Rebel was better. I pointed to an example of a Rebel image that was better than a 7D image(a side by side comparison). There is more to a camera than just IQ, like ability to control, adjust and autofocus, high ISO performance and so on.

I agree with you Dwhowie reading from many sources is very important. Additionally, Darwin maybe denounced by some, but was he proven wrong? Did anyone one else do a side by side comparison? Maybe people just don’t like what he said? He is not alone in his pessimistic assessments of the 7D.That is besides the point I won’t add any more links to support this opinion. But the links you provide do little to persuade me. Dpreview.com is owned by Amazon, the other two “bloger” sites are saturated with advertising for online stores. I cant expect a impartial review from a source that benefits from sales of the items they talk about. I also imagine it very likely that, disadvantages of a camera maybe omitted.

What I really was hoping to talk about is the megapixel race and how pointless it is. I have no intention to argue about the superior IQ of the cheep. How much of an improvement is the 7d over the 50d or Rebel(at low ISO) ?Not much of what I see. Wouldent IQ be served better if Canon developed better high ISO performance? But that is just my opinion.

Please remember I am only talking about IQ, not other camera abilities.

Can't see how even higher ISO performance would help much... the 1DmkIV or 5DmkII are basically able to shoot action at night with almost no grain visible.

I was with a friend today who said something with which I could not possibly agree more - if one doesn't know exactly how to use a camera it won't give one its best results. The 7D has been out no more than just a few weeks and folks are picking it up, having a little play and sticking their 'absolutely conclusive' reviews all over the 'net. Getting the most out of a camera such as the 7D requires plenty of time and not just a two-hour mess-around.

By the way, I got to see how a 7D performs this morning and it blew me away!

If you want real IQ, buy a Zeiss Ikon.
