50mp is astonishing. A pixel peeper's dream. Diving into the images feels like looking at a "Where's Waldo?" page. Here's a couple shots from yesterday. Nothing special, just testing with my 50/1.8STM:

I think the purchase was meant to be, because last night I was blessed with this sunset: (16-35/4L IS)

I'm glad I went this way, rather than to the 5D4. That would have been a nice increment, but this is a quantum leap. If I was obsessed with DR I might have gone to the 5D4. I will probably shoot mostly in MRAW (28mp) but it's nice to have 50mp on tap for big scapes and big prints.

    Wonderful about the new camera purchase, and that susnset is gorgeous. thumb.gifclap

    I do wonder how many other DGrinners have this particular body? (I seem to recall at least one other?)

    Thanks! I just missed Nikolai selling his, to get a 5D4. So I got mine from Canon refurb.

    Nice one Mac. Brett, I hear you, it's not for everyone, but you might find yourself changing your tune when you get a 4K monitor. I wish I could be in the room when certain people start working with a 4K (or more) display, and all the piddly little things they were obsessing over simply disappear. They will have to view their pics at 200% or more in order to see them. Hopefully then they will realize how ridiculous they were being. I don't have a 4K monitor yet but I have always tried to be realistic about the dpi of my pictures' intended final use. I have some big prints in mind so it's nice to have the pixels when I want them.

    Plus, when you downsize a 5DSR image to 75% or 50%, it takes on a "Foveon-esque" crispness. e.g.: https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/5DSR/n-GjMvpv/i-dhc9pKK/0/O/i-dhc9pKK.jpg
